Good sized room and clean, no proper air conditioning very antiquated, swimming pool had green algae all round the edge of the bottom, but what completely ruined our holiday was the hoards of rampaging teenagers until 4 and 5 some of the mornings, needless to say we would never stay in this hotel again, sad really.

The Santa Maria Hotel is a decent and good facility. The staff are adequately friendly and helpful. And the room that I stayed in was decent. However, the location was a long distance that was certainly aggravated by having to endure the frustration and stress of waiting for and withstanding achingly long, and at times, very congested bus journeys, in particular to the capital. Also, though minor, but annoying nonetheless, on many occasions there was a failure to replace my room towels even though I had amply emphasised this many times. Minor annoying inconvenience. The man at the tourist activity information desk distinguished himself quite favourably. He was very open, welcoming and generous in his directions and information. Of which I was grateful for. This hotel was decent and adequate in a functional fashion.

Edullinen hotelli.

Aika edullinen hotelli lähellä julkisen liikenteen pysäkkejä. Tilava huone. Tv ja vedenkeitin pyydettäessä. Parveke ok ja uimallas. Metelit tosin kaikuvat käytävältä. Ei ollut jääkaappia, se oli iso puute. Alle 15 min kävelymatka kielikoulu Bellistä.

Hôtel correct sans plus

L'enregistrement se fait à l'accueil de l'hôtel d'en face le "san Anton" Pas de clim dans les chambres mais un ventilateur au plafond qui "rafraîchit" un peu le soir. L'hôtel ainsi que les chambres et la deco ne sont pas modernes, la literie est correcte mais pas de sommier à lattes. Notre salle de bain comprenait un toilette qui fuyait... Nous avons demandé à la réception de venir voir elle nous a dit qu'elle allait demander à ce que ce soit nettoyé et nous avons constaté que rien n'avait été fait. Il y a un petit balcon qui est agréable le soir pour se rafraîchir . Attention pas de wifi dans les chambres, il y en a dans le hall mais on capte très mal, pas très pratique . Point positif l'hôtel est situé pas très loin de la plage et des restaurants, commerces... Le "nettoyage" a été fait deux fois en 6 jours et on nous a donné un autre drap propre la veille de notre départ Ça ne nous a pas empêché de passer un très bon séjour à Malte mais nous serons plus regardantes la prochaine fois sur la qualité de l'hôtel . Pour les petits petits budgets ok mais si vous avez le choix préférez un autre hôtel .
