Offering Mediterranean delights for breakfast, lunch and dinner with views of Salina bay and the outdoor pool. Not forgetting the little ones, early suppers can be arranged. If you're staying Half Board lunch will have an extra charge.
We had a great time in Malta; we went there for snorkelling and couldnt have been in a better hotel for it!
To go snorkelling we literally walked out past the pool and into the water. It was full of fish and very good visability. Not good for anyone wanting a beach holiday though! It's rocky/coral which is perfect for fish.
We visited golden sands beach, the blue lagoon and swam with tuna. I'd suggest all of them, just get the bus where possible as I think we paid â¬1.50 each for the bus where as the coach cost around â¬20 each - to golden sands.
When swimming make sure you wear some sort of shoes on your feet as there are lots of sea urchins - but they never harmed us.
The hotel food was good, but if we went again we'd go all inclusive as the drinks and extras were quite expensive! More
Fab place, can't wait to go back
We stayed at this hotel in September last year 12th - 18th. It was smashing. It was my first time abroad and my partner and I had a lovely time. Our room was lovely, it was a sea view on the 6th floor and we have booked the same room for this September! The indoor pool and jacuzzi was open when we stayed so we spent time in this as well as the outdoor pool. The bar at poolside was quick to serve you, and the nightly entertainment was wonderful.The sunbeds were reserved early in the morning so you had to get down to poolside quickly to reserve a bed (we weren't greedy we didn't want to lie in sun, we wanted shade!)
The food was nice, plenty to choose from, lots of local cuisine, and plenty of variation from one evening to the next. Facilities are good, shops are local, lots of pizzeria and pasta restuarants in the area, make the Qawra Palace an ideal location.
We just cannot wait to go back. My first holiday ever abroad and we loved this hotel!More
Good Location - Friendly & Helpful Staff
Booked here for a week in November and after reading some of the reviews was very apprehensive. We did find the hotel was dated, the bathrooms very small and worn but we were told the hotel was due to shut in December for a full refurbishment, bearing this in mind we found it was clean and tidy, the food was good and varied. It's definitely worth paying extra for the sea view though.
We strongly disagree with the reviews stating the staff to be rude and unhelpful, I was there with my elderly mother who became ill during our stay and we could not fault them. The dining room staff made her any food we asked for, sending food up to her room. The reception staff were very helpful in organising taxis and advising on doctors and they all asked about her every time we saw them. We found all the staff were very friendly and always had a smile and time for a chat.More
Not a 4 Star Hotel
The Hotel is in a great position for transport links all over the island and also is on the beachfront (which is across the man road in front of the Hotel). However, the bathrooms are old and dated (tile grouting was black in places and the bedrooms had condensation in the roof tiles. There is no tea or coffee sachets supplied. The older staff were very helpful but younger ones less so. The cleaning staff are magnificent. The breakfast room is nice and fully stocked but the fhot ood gets cold very quickly once displayed. The in-house entertainment is usual a keyboard player with dubious taste in music. It is a shame as this could be a great hotel with a little refurbishment.
Local restaurants to recommend are Giardino on Turist il Triq and also The Bayside Restaurant on the beachfront walking to Bugibba.More
Stayed here with my daughter and granddaughter. The room was a bit cramped with 3 beds in and the tiny balcony meant we'd have had to take turns in using it! However, as a base, it was clean and comfortable. The staff were helpful and friendly. The meals were good with plenty of choice. Biggest gripe was the "sunbed hoggers"! Down to place their towels early morning and not using the sunbeds for most of the day - so annoying!More
