“FANTASTIC LOCATION”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2011

Hi We stayed at the RELAX INN for two weeks in AUGUST and we cannot fault the hotel . On arrival the chap at RECEPTION could not have been more helpful. The room was basic but we were not expecting anything else for the price we had paid. It was large and cleaned everyday which fullfilled our requirements . The location was excellent five mins to the sea and five mins to the night life.. MALTA is a fantastic Island and BUGGIBA is lovely and the people are really nice and friendly . FAT HARRY''S a great PUB AND RESTAURANT be sure to try GEORGE'S SEAFRONT RESTAURANT it has excelllent food and is very reasonable . THE pool at the RELAX INN may be small but the views and the sun terrace are brillant. If we return to BUGGIBA we will definitely stay at THE RELAX INN. Keep up

We stayed here last week (8th August 2011 onwards). The hotel may be basic and small, and some people on here do moan about really pointless things !! but that's all you're going to need, unless you plan to have your entire holiday in the actual hotel and not go out at all of course, then there is no reason to moan !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The staff are friendly and helpful, and the receptionist Gary was more than happy to grab us a couple of local beers upon arrival, very cheap and big bottles, not bad taste of beer either, if you like beer of course !! I think we woke up one of the other receptionists in the early of hours though, as we went down to reception at 5 in the morning to await our pick up for Sicily, he sat up from one of the sofas, scared the crap out of us lol, good bloke though !!!!!!!!
The swimming pool may also be small, but who cares unless your fat, the views from the roof are great, you have a great view of the sea, a nice smell of food all around and a great atmosphere rising up from the streets below. There are plenty of decent bars and restaurants just round the corner from the Relax Inn, "Fat Harry's" was pretty good.
Bit noisy at night as the night life really kicks in and the music in the bars is cranked right up, so no good for old timers who want peace & quiet, we didnt worry about the noise at all, was no problem. We even sat on the balcony one night soaking up the atmosphere by night and waking up to a nice hot sun by day. The coast is about 5 mins walk, loads of shops around too where you can buy plenty of Malta gifts, hats, flags all that kind of stuff !!
Oh yeh breakfast is good, just make sure you put the bread through the toaster the right way round, as I forgot this as was still half asleep and set fire to my toast, cause it got stuck !!!!! the lady working on the breakfast was a bit annoyed, but she probably just put it down to me being English and a man lol,
If you've had a few vodkas one night and you get back to the hotel and have the munchies, check out the food place next door to the Relax, it sell nice Subs, similiar to Subway, well good, you can get more beer in there too, and reasonably priced.
Overall thoroughly enjoyed Bugibba, and the Relax Inn was defo a decent place to stay, we shall return if they will have us !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

Room Tip: Email Sharon at the hotel first !!!!!!!!!!!

In maltian standards it's livable, but in continental europe I wouldn't be happy with this. The service was really friendly and mostly good, but it took them two full days to get our toilet to flush. The problem was the same in the lobby toilet, so where to do your needs for two days? Everything in the room was plasticky, you had to pay if you wanted fridge opened or use safe and our sea view was mostly the backside of another building. At least the room was quite clean, not counting the rust stains in the bath and some minor flaws. And it also had nice tile floor. Breakfast was as you would expect in this price range, toast, bad cheese, some cold cuts, fruits from jars, yogurt and coffee. Overall our stay wasn't bad as we did not go there to lay in the hotel room but I wouldn't go there again.

Room Tip: With sea view make sure your room is in the 5th floor, not 4th.

We arrived at the hotel very late at night and a lovely old man greeted us & showed us to our room and showed us how everything worked etc.
We came back down for a drink which he gave us for free and we tried to tip him but he wouldn't take anything!
The room was big, clean and well equipped. We had air conditioning at no extra charge and a small daily charge for the fridge & safe. We were very lucky and had a lovely view of the sea, the room got cleaned every day and everything worked well and was modern!
The location of the hotel is fantastic - it's not so close that it's too noisy but you are right near everything so you don't have to walk miles. Food was very basic and not great but we only went half board and there are plenty of reasonably priced restaurants nearby.
Would definately recommend & we loved Malta & will stay here again when we go back. The man that showed us in on the first night even waved us off when we left and we were genuinely gutted to leave.

My mother in law and two children have just returned from a week all inclusive in the hotel. They have thoroughly enjoyed their stay. All the hotel staff made them fell welcome and a big thank you to Sharon to organizing this for us. Yes the hotel is basic but the food and accomodation are good value for money. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a value for money holiday.

It can't be denied that the staff are friendly, they work hard to provide good service and that's great if you intend on spending your holiday chatting to the staff or waiting for staff to appear at reception to be able to chat to.

Perhaps we just got a room which was particularly bad but the bed was very uncomfortable and we ended up putting towels under the sheets to give a little more padding to the very thin mattress. Over the bed was a shelf which was hanging off the wall. It was possible to only open one door of the very old and chipped wardrobe as the drawers below it were damaged and prevented the door opening. There were other problems but I think this gives a flavour of the quality of the rooms.

The food was fine but more canteen style than restaurant and get there early if you want dessert with your evening meal as it often ran out.

The pool was closed when we were there but I think pool is perhaps exaggerating slightly, carefully angled photographs made it look bigger than it actually is, it would be fine for getting in and cooling off but you wouldn't be able to swim and in peak season I suspect you would be queuing to get into it.

So yes, friendly staff but there was little else here which would encourage us to visit again.

Stayed in the Relax in December last year and was so impressed by the family who run it and the people who holiday there that we went back in June. It is a basic hotel but very clean and the food is ok with a choice of meat, fish or they will cook a fresh omelette if you prefer. When we were there 1 of the guests had his 65th birthday and when I asked them if they would make a cake for him they provided a hige chocolate cake! Not a lot of hotels would do this without charging the earth. I would think it would pay to book early as our room on the 2nd. had no view at all but I didn't find it too much of a problem as we were out most of the time. Basically a friendly, family run hotel in a good position.
