10/10 Exceptional

Malta connection
Arrived a little early as we were leaving from another hotel in a different part of Malta before arriving at the Santana, we were impressed with the outside appearance of the hotel until we tried to mount the stairs in the pouring rain, my husbands on crutches and although there is a ramp it was to steep and slick with the rain for him to use safely, after 5mins of struggling up the steps with 2 suitcases and helping my husband being watched by a staff member (no offer of help) I booked us in, as early was told we could put our luggage in storage and our room would be ready at 2pm, okay went into a lounge area for the football asked for keys at 2.15 not ready, seems a balcony had to be re-cleaned due to the rain!!, around 20mins later the receptionist arrived with keys, ground floor room lots of space, clean, tidy and disabled friendly, lifts to restaurant and indoor pool, buffet breakfast, plenty of and good selection, dining area better quality than others in the area, check out quick and easy and as going to a further hotel we were allowed to store luggage and watch the football, overall as this was a single nights stay we would book again for a longer period

Whenever I visit Malta this is the only hotel I ever book. Over the years there have been many enhancements to the property and the Santana just keeps getting better and better. Staff are always friendly and the hotel is situated in the perfect spot to get to anywhere on the island with the bus station very close by. Last visit I got upgraded to an executive suite, so thank you Santana! :) Only one slight niggle, the linen and towels are the next thing to upgrade, they’re all a bit thin and worn. But overall, a brilliant place to stay.

We stay often here
There was an issue on check out - reception team hassled me for a payment (which had been paid). I showed receipt and then emailed it to them. Their admin issue was not mine to sort. We had an unexpected knock on our door at 0200hrs. There should be tighter security on who they let into the hotel. We were two females and the man wanted to join us in our room! We were shocked as he had clearly followed us. Reception team were not interested in this report. We stay often here and this was the first poor service we have had
