We arrived in Malta at 20:40 but by the time we had collected our cases and joined passengers from two other flights and endured the clumsy procedure for allocation to transport, it was after 21:30 when we arrived at the hotel. Check in was not particularly efficient and we enquired if there was any opportunity obtain a snack, we were informed that this was not possible as the restaurant was closed. This later arrival cannot be unique and it is disappointing that no arrangements can be made, as at many other good hotels, for, at least, sandwiches. First impressions are important and this was not good.
The room, pool view, was large, obviously well maintained and with adequate storage apart from the open hanging arrangement for clothes. We stayed during the coldest period that Malta had experienced for some time. The room heating did not work effectively but we were, eventually, supplied with supplementary heating.
All meals were of a very consistent quality and variety, a great credit to the Executive Chef and his team with so many guests to cater for. The dining room was large and impersonal, again, no doubt, because of the numbers. It was not possible to make real contact with the staff except for Saviour, a trainee, who was a great credit to the young lady who patiently teaching him.
The public areas were comfortably furnished and, once the heating had been adjusted, made pleasant areas for relaxation. The Maroc bar was open all day and provided a welcome relaxation on gloomy days, it was made even more pleasant by Daniella the regular member of staff. The Kosy bar and the entertainment provided a great venue each evening, the drinks in both bars were of a good quality by all-inclusive standards. We did not take our meal at the Bistro because we discovered that having to leave the main building and cross wet paving and slippery steps it would have been too hazardous for me as I have walking difficulties.
My wife made use of the Spar on several occasions which she found pleasing.
The weather prevented us from using the outdoor facilities but it was obvious that the provisions for Summer visitors were vary good.
Overall a good Hotel, large but well able to cope with the number of guests. For some it may seem impersonal but members of the Management team were always in evidence.
At the time of our visit there was extensive building work on the Casino opposite. Hopefully this will be complete when the warmer weather arrives.

Room Tip: Pool or sea view rooms are preferable.

10/10 for the food. There was a good variety of food and everything tasted amazing, in particular the breakfast.

There were 2 things which bothered us; the pool area and the gym.
We couldn't stand the chlorine in the air in the pool area. It hurt our eyes. We only managed to stay in the pool for around 20mins.
The gym had old equipment.

Apart from that, everything was great including the staff and the room.

Excellent nothing to fault. We were a group of around 60 people. We were all satisfied and happy. Very well organised, food was great. I do highly recommend both for private or social functions. The restaurant was full of people, it was a very busy nice but there were enough staff to clear the tables and to clean the floors instantly if someone dropped food or drinks on the floor.

We travelled with Travelsphere for a tour of Malta over Christmas. The San Antonio Hotel was excellent, lovely room, the restaurant was busy but the food was very good. We tried the Tangine restaurant which again was very good. The Chef's should be congratulated Christmas Eve the food was amazing. I would recommend the San Antonio Hotel to anyone travelling to Malta.
