Santana Hotel

Malta and Gozo, Europe

Right at the heart of Qawra, right at the heart of the action, the Santana hotel has to be one of Malta's most desirable spots. With its light sea blue livery, the hotel signposts its location – just a minute from the seafront itself.

The Qawra seafront is a favourite spot for holidaymakers, with its many shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. Beyond the promenade is another of its main attractions, the rocky beach, a haven for swimmers and sun bathers – and a great place to explore. Qawra is also home to some of Malta's most prized cultural sites too – no visit is complete without a trip to the historical towers and the church of St Francis of Assisi.

The Santana Hotel gives you a little bit of everything Malta has to offer:

Even with such a perfect location, the Santana Hotel is more than just a base for exploring and enjoying Malta. It is, after all, a four star hotel with four star facilities to match.

There's a Wellness club offering over 80 health & beauty therapy treatments (at a fee ) and adding to the spa feel is a sauna and the opportunity for a massage (at a fee). The Santana Hotel has its own fitness room too, so you can maintain your customary fitness regime, plus a superb wellness centre with over plenty of treatments available.

After all of that, you can pick and choose one of the bars or restaurant's to while away a few pleasant hours in the evening.

Guests of the Santana Hotel often like to round things off by staying to enjoy the hotel's own schedule of entertainment – it does make for a very sociable end to the day.

Finally to bed. All rooms are comfortably furnished and feature a balcony – so you can look out at the twinkling lights of Qawra. All rooms feature an en suite bathroom, most have a bath/shower and some just have showers. Rooms also feature tip top amenities like satalite TV (with pay TV), radio and hairdryer. Another bonus – keeping the temperature just right is a cinch with the centrally controlled air conditioning. Rooms were fully renovated in 2019 including the bathrooms.

The Santana Hotel is as much a reason to choose Qawra for your Maltese holiday destination as the towers of the Knights of St John, or the beaches or the accessibility to other locations. Choosing the right hotel really is that important.

Been going here for years!!!

Review by CricketKing

I have been going to the Santana for the last 6 Years. I stay in a double room with a beautiful balcony for 4 weeks every January.The Hotel is of a First Class standard- Clean and very tidy. Staff are extremely friendly and make me feel so welcome and glad to be back and they go out of their way to help if needed...

Evening entertainment is very good and food has a good selection at both breakfast and evening meal. I have already booked fot Jan 2021! Stuart - Cheshire

Pleasant Experience

Review by Glen M San Gwann, Malta

We spent last Christmas at Hotel Santana and we must say that everything met our expectations. We were on all inclusive basis and for the price paid we were extremely satisfied. Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas Lunch were nothing short of amazing...

An endless choice and all of excellent quality. We were allocated a comfort room and it was quite spacious and of a high standard. We were told that the hotel has recently refurbished all guest rooms. They had to refurbish the main restaurant during January.

All in all it was excellent stay and I would hesitate to recommend this Hotel to anyone.

Great Stay

Review by josettem911 San Gwann, Malta

Just returned from a week's stay at Hotel Santana. We stayed on Half board basis and the selection for both breakfast and dinner was great. We had 2 kids with us who are quite fussy but still found something to eat every day...

Thank you to the chefs present behind the counter! They were very understanding. All the staff are really helpful. A special thank you goes to the bar staff who served us with a smile on their face and made sure we had a great stay. Thank you all and see you soon
