The Santa Maria Hotel Malta is easy going, tasteful and positively full of cheer. Superbly located – about 800 metres from the seafront in the small town of Bugibba – expect to find endless resources to keep you entertained: bars, pubs, clubs and cafes just to name a few.

Although known for its rocky beaches, Malta also hosts some fine sandy examples – Ghadira being the largest; and at just 10-minute drive away, convenience has never been closer. For those seeking to explore further afield, Cirkewwa Ferry Port is just a 20-minute drive away and ferries carry passengers daily to the smaller islands of Gozo and Comino.

Rooms in double, twin and triple options cater for you and your companion’s desires, offering balcony views, while en suite bathrooms include a full bath with hand held shower as standard. With their simple wooden fittings, bright summery bed linen and country-like upholstered chairs, the rooms are best described as both warm and welcoming.

Basking in Malta’s sunshine and surrounded by the wide open sun terrace, the spacious outdoor pool is perfect for cooling off or simply taking a leisurely swim.
