Lovely hotel apartment. We were Self Catering so in one of the larger rooms with small kitchen/dining area and En-suite bath room. Room was very clean and had two massive king sized twin beds, wardrobe and dresser. The cleaner came in every second day to empty the bins and tidy the bath room. Reception staff were always available and very helpful. The Hotel is situated approx 10 - 15 mins walk from the main square at Bugibba and up-hill (which was the main downside to this hotel),

I just came back from Malta. We booked the blue Sea San Anton, BnB, for 8 days. It was very cheap and after reading the reviews on trip advisor, I was really worried about going! It was grand,a bit dated and tired, but the room was very big with 2 double beds and a balcony out onto the street, which we liked because we could watch the world go by. There was plenty of food for breakfast. Staff were very nice. We didn't need anything so didn't really have much interaction with them. I enjoyed it. Not sure what it would be like for a family though so please check on a family page here. Before we went we were told that we could get the weekly bus ticket at the Airport which we got( machine won't give you more than 5 euro change so keep this in mind) We got the x 3 bus, no problem but once we got to Bugibba, we could not find the hotel. Everything looks the same so be advised, just arrange your transfer before you get there. The only thing i would recomend is that if you like a cuppa during the day, maybe bring one of those little travel kettles and tea/cofee with you. Plugs are the same as Ireland and England.

Room Tip: We got the room that looked over the road which we liked. There was a fine big balcony so that was g...

Very nice hotel and nice apartment with 2 big double beds, overlooking the pool everything was clean & tidy. We were breakfast only and we had a full English every morning the food was very good and the choice was excellent The hotel was not on a bus route and the nearest one was about a good five minutes away but was about 15 min walk to the harbour There was no entertainment at this hotel this was over the road at the santa maria.

Having read the reviews I wished I hadn't booked the holiday. Arrived check in was delayed but room was ready for 3pm as promised. Room was like a flat, kitchen, living area, two bedrooms, large bathroom and three small balconies. Staff work very hard to provide varied meals, we had some lovely meals don't know what some people expect. Alexander the entertainer was a charming man who made my children's holiday a total asset to the hotel. I could not realistically expect anymore for the price paid. One suggestion would be mattress protectors and fitted sheets apart from that not one complaint. Thanks for a great holiday, would return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Two bed apartment were great

What you expect from an Advertised as Budget Hotel is exactly what you get here . The rooms were perfectly fine , the hotel was clean and tidy and the staff always on hand and helpful.
points you should consider before booking are - Location is central Bugibba not near the promenade and certainly not close to a beach. If you don't mind walking around then its fine , The buses do run very well and are very cheap 7.50 for a week anywhere on the island, The nearest bus stop is a walk away from the hotel , Once we got our bearings it was easier to navigate around and we found different days down to the waterfront but it is down hill of course so the stroll back is harder work.
The all inclusive deal was very good , the breakfast was ok , the lunch ok and the evening meal always was different and always something to eat. Do not expect English meals you are not in England you are in Malta and as English as they appear the meals are not based on English food , So please bear this in mind when booking .
All in all Malta is a lovely place and the San Anton and sister hotel across the road are both of a good standard . Pool Bar from 10.00 am to 5 pm when main bars in both hotels open and all inclusive runs from 8am at breakfast until 11pm at night . Alcohol is served from 10 am .
As for the décor well the san anton has only recently re-opened after being closed for many years , So do what we do if you want to enjoy your hard earned holiday , take it all in your stride , the pool area's are great , plenty of loungers , do what everyone else does and ignore the signs stating sunbeds are not to be reserved , leave your towels on them and clear of for the day on your open top coach trip ( great) , Boat trip ( cancelled quite often on windy days so book early on in your stay ) and then return and laze for half an hour before evening meal. San anton pool was a great sun trap and we loved it. As for reception they were helpful and all spoke very good English as do all the staff , They are polite , so be the same in return .
Hotel was always busy as you expect but the lifts were ok in operating and we had a very good first trip to Malta . We will go back to the Island . nb no air con in rooms but big fan which did the job , May not be as good when it really hots up .

Room Tip: we prefer the room with a road view , but if you like a pool view there are plenty .

Read all the reviews and you will get the picture. You are paying b&b price for all inclusive.
What was good, room decent size, Breakfast, & Lunch Ok. Evening meal food could be served hotter, and choice was a little limited.
The behaviour of some guests left a lot to be desired, two couples swimming in the pool at 1.00am.
In blue sea there where examples of sun bed reservation despite signs saying this would not be tolerated.
Noisy corridors,lack of atmosphere in Molly Malones. Choice of tv channels is very limited.
Best advice unless you do not intend to leave the hotel at all is to book B&B plenty of opportunity to eat out locally at reasonable price, local meal in the square starter, main, dessert, coffee & liqueur €19.
