Primera Hotel

Malta and Gozo, Europe

The Primera Hotel has the look of a perfect holiday hotel. With 82 rooms spread over 8 floors, it has a more intimate feel than some of Bugibba's larger hotels and the service is very attentive.

The beach is just a minute's walk from the Primera Hotel. The main Bugibba square is practically on your doorstep, and the shops, bars and restaurants are all close at hand. You're right at the heart of things here.

Attentive service, superb views and all the amenities of Bugibba at the Primera Hotel:

The Primera Hotel bridges the gap between the very small and very large hotels giving travellers another option – it's perfect for couples, as well as small families. In short, it is a wonderful holiday retreat.

Bugibba has so much to offer you. The distinctive pebbly beaches are perfect places to explore or to picnic on; and those large flat pebbles make a surprisingly comfortable sunbathing spot.

You can also sunbathe back at the Primera Hotel. The hotel sun terraces are nicely elevated, affording some wonderful views out over the St Paul's Island and the open sea beyond.

In between jaunts out, or spells on the terrace, you'll enjoy the calm of the hotel; its spacious communal rooms making it the ideal place to meet and greet and take it easy between outings. Do make sure you leave plenty of time for the buffet breakfasts and dinners in the hotel restaurant. Or, if you're rushing off to your next adventure, there is a handy snack bar too.

Guests at the Primera Hotel enjoy a balcony room, as standard, and, of course all are fully air conditioned to ensure a comfortable night's sleep. Rooms also benefit from satellite TV and direct dial phone.

With its enviable location, within easy reach of the sea and all the amenities of Bugibba, the Primera Hotel is a popular destination for holidaymakers. Behind its sunny façade is a warm welcome and a great base for your holiday.

Great place for young people and couples.. Not families

Review by Melanie R Ebbw Vale, United Kingdom

I was told before I went not to expect much.. as Malta is a little behind the times.. Well it is but I personally loved the place.. The main fault I found was that our room was like a cave (#114)....

the window was onto a shaft(?) the kitchen & main extraction vent.. very very loud.. We asked to change rooms & were told to ask the next morning.. we did and same the next day.. we were only there for one week so I gave up.. We hired a table top fridge, 4 euros a day, we had to ask for a stand up fan as A/C was rubbish.. & a kettle.. no mugs or spoons so we bought some.. :-( Nice roof pool..shallow. Jan on reception is as helpful as she can be..everyone has a boss..

The beach was dark, gritty and rocky but very nice.. beautiful in fact.. the square is very very busy 24/7.. some lovely places to eat and benches around the centre which get used a lot by locals .. it's a lovely place. There are lots of glass and jewellery shops everywhere.. not too expensive for lots of things but you can pay as much as you want.. We visited the aquarium.. that was a walk I'll remember.. but level path all the way :0) It's a really nice place.. I can't remember how much to get in.. Around 12-15 euros per person?? We caught the bus to Mdina.. WOW.. now that's beauty.. We visited, by bus, Valletta one day.. both places need experiencing for yourself..

Bugibba is a town like any other so be prepared for everyday life..

All in all we'd definitely revisit BUT it'd definitely be self catering..

Excellent Bar

Review by Graeme W Aberdeenshire, Scotland

Although the hotel was closed for refurbishment their air-conditioned modern bar restaurant was open. Set right in the heart of Bagibba this place is trendy, upmarket and plush inside. Great cocktails and friendly efficient table service
