We loved staying at the DB San Antonio in Malta. Thank you and your staff for looking after all our needs during this difficult time. I felt very safe with the routine temp checks to all guests and visitors as they arrived. Rooms cleaned daily. Good food will need a diet. We shall look forward to seeing everyone again soon.
Spent 1 night on New Year's eve at this hotel. Confort room, delicious food especially the New year's dinner. Also with COVID restrictions, there was an entertainment show and fire works and music during the countdown which made it more special during these bad times. Also appreciated that we had a bottle of champagne in our room for free!
We spent our honeymoon in this beautiful hotel, the best experience was the kitchen and the dinner on the outside terrace with sunset and the view on the sea. We are the most grateful to the hotel staff - the best maid from Ukraine, the best receptionist Abdul and the best waiter Deepak.
