This hotel is ideal for a relaxing break. It's just metres from the sea, with a pretty pool area and a couple of restaurants. You're only a short walk from the town centre, too.
The Hotel Qawra Palace is in a great spot. It's just across the road from a pretty rocky beach, and the nearest sandy one is only a 15-minute walk away. The shops, restaurants and bars, meanwhile, are even closer.
The hotel swimming pool has been built to make the most of the views - it's set in the heart of a palm-freckled terrace, and faces out to sea. There's also a kids' pool out here, and a bar serving cold drinks and light bites.
There’s lots of choice when it comes to dining. Buffets come courtesy of the main restaurant, which offers up a mix of Mediterranean and international dishes. In the summer, meanwhile, there’s also a pizzeria in a romantic al fresco setting. There are three bars here, too, as well as a coffee bar which does a mean line in homemade cakes.
The hotel’s bedrooms all have good-sized balconies, and for the best views, book one that looks out to the sea.

Visited this hotel for one 18-25 June with my wife. We could not have made a better choice. The hotel was a good 4 star hotel and value for money. We paid a little extra for a sea view room and the sunrise was brilliant to watch from our balcony. O.K. a little of the block pointing on the balcony looked like it had been done by a handyman rather than a craftsman, but we just smiled. The rooms were cleaned to a very high standard. We had booked in on a half-board basis and found the meals to be very good. Breakfast was a good choice of cooked or continental plus a choice of 4 cereals. There was also a number of dishes and roasts for evening meals and I cannot believe people who say there was nothing they could enjoy. Drinks were reasonably priced, entertainment on an evening was as good as any hotel I have visited in the past. The Cafe Royale on the reception floor was also a pleasure to visit. My wife and I cannot think of any fault at this hotel. Our thanks to all of the staff, who were courteous and helpful. This was our first visit to Malta and we enjoyed it so much that we will be returning late September or early October. This hotel will be our first choice of accomodation.More

First visit to Malta
Stayed here from June 23rd for 1 week with my two daughters. It was our first visit to Malta and had seen this hotel advertised several times in national newspapers. Generally the hotel was very good in a lovely seafront position, the large pool area overlooked the rocky beach with beautiful view across the bay. Lots of sun loungers available but had to pay 1 euro for the matress which was essential as very uncomfortable without, poolside cafe a little limited but ok. Our room overlooked an inner courtyard unfortunately, it had 4 single beds and was quite spacious and adequate, the bathroom was very small though. I generally felt the hotel could do with refurbishment to bring it up to date. The entertainment was not our taste and would probably only suit the older guests, a bit 'cheesy' for us! Nearby Bugibba was worth a visit in the evenings. Food was average and a bit limited but ok and well presented.staff on reception were always very pleasant and helpful. We went on 'highlights of Malta' tour with Thomson which took us to Mdina, the old capital, beautiful, also to Valletta and a tour of limestone heritage, not our favourite part of the trip, also went to Maltese night, a good evening although we were seated next to the speakers, ( well it was table number 13 !), a good evening but wasn't keen on the food unfortunately, surprised as love Greek, Italian, Spanish. Definitely worth visiting Mellieha bay for a lovely day at the beautiful sandy beach and St Julians bay for shopping and sightseeing. Thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to Malta and hope to visit again one day, will hire a car next time.More

I have just returned from QPH with my 14 year old daughter, I regretted booking it after reading many negative reviews, but I can honestly say it has been the best holiday I have been on. The hotel is like an old fashioned duchess, that in her hey day was young and beautiful but age has now caught up with her. The hotel has statues, marble and brass fittings, yes a few cracked tiles here and there, our cistern did not match but hey did we care...no! We had a room with a sea view 340, maid kept our room beautiful and clean, beds changed regularly and clean towels every day. The usual soap, sewing kit and vanity care was handy, and a kettle, yes we had to buy plastic spoons, sugar 69c, and sachets of coffee, all in 4 euro's so no complaints there. We are vegetarian and was worried that we would find it difficult. Breakfast choice of cereal, breads, cheese, pastries, eggs ,beans, fried potatoes, mushrooms, yoghurt and fruit ( as well as ham and sausage). Dinner lots of cold meats, cheese bread etc and a separate vegetarian menu with a choice of three mains, and for pudding four choices of cake and ice cream, cheese and crackers....so you had to get drink before sitting down, I felt good idea, as at times restaurant was busy with people carrying hot plates of food, without people wandering back and forth with drinks as well. One complaint re restaurant one of the waiters was prone to making faces at guests and commenting to colleague about them and eyeing young girls up, otherwise waiters very nice, very much seen and not heard, unobtrusive which in a 4* hotel is to be expected. There was always sunbeds available but if you wanted one with a shade or the same 'spot' every morning would advise getting down for 8 ish, if you are happy to live a little there is sunbeds available. pool areas kept clean. we only used the outdoor pool once as it was baltic, but used the indoor pool and hot tubs regularly until some guests felt it could be used as a creche, and left their children dive bombing, screaming and being wild, whilst the parents sunned themselves at the outdoor pool area, this put the indoor amenities out of use for us, so I was very disappointed in the lack of respect from the parents of these children for other guests, especially as there was two other pools suitable for children, management of the hotel should have stepped in as it was a health and safety issue (signs were up stating children should be supervised).There is an exercise yoga class and water gym class run by Irving, worth taking part in these! We loved the entertainment at night, we were up line dancing, disco and waltzing round the floor...again the Maltese people came most nights to dance,they pay to get in, it gives you a chance to meet the locals in a friendly atmosphere, also gave us people to watch and copy for our moves! ...AND IT IS THEIR COUNTRY NOT A MINI BRITAIN!!! Lastly, visit the Cafe Royal you expect to see Hercule Poirot in the corner, service is slow, you are never hurried you can sit out and watch the world go by in 30's style surroundings, enjoying the ambience and relaxing the cappugiro with chocolate is delicious, the cakes are out of this world, and you will find it difficult to make a choice as each is nicer than the last, on the weekend try a pea cake yum!!!More

We returned from this hotel after 1 weeks stay 12-19 June 2015. Rooms very clean and quite modern, although a kettle and cups no tea or coffe making facilities, but cleaned to a hight standard every day. We had a room on the 3rd floor sea view which could be quite noisy due to traffic levels. Rep. We travelled with Jet2 and the rep was very helpful and informative (although we have been fdor a number of years) Bar - Very good although we went all inclusive was pleased we didn't have to wear a wrist band. Although waiting from 8 - 11 in the morning was not good. Restaurant Food was hit and miss. Breakfast was really good as was the snacks in the pool bar, although I don't know what happened at night as food was not as good. Pool area Very nice although the English did tend to put their towels on at 6.20 in the morning. The animation team Irvine from Mexico only went around speaking to the hotel guest and did nothing with the few children who was there and on out last day his idea of entertaiment was going arount with a cola bottle full of cocktail sticks asking guests to guess how many was in there. I hope this improves over the summer months. Entertaiment This is fine as long as you like Ballroom or Line Dancing as it was geared to the Maltese who come in virtually every night and seem to overtake the pool area at night on weekends so be there straight after dinner and go to early sitting. It would have been better if they could have had a dance troop and magician to give us a break from singers every night. All in all we have had worst experiences in Malta although to get to Bugibba bus station you have to climb quite a steep hill unless you walk around coast line approx 30 mins. A pity the country has not as yet got rid of the Time Shares.More
Could do bettter..........
Lots of potential but needs a really good makeover. Room was adequate and clean and the beds were very comfortable. Bathrooom was spotless but in need of some tlc - bits of mouldy grouting and chipped tiles but a nice suppy of toiletres. Breakfast was...a bit grim. I'd miss it and go into the hotel cafe and have a toastie and a good cup of coffee if I were you! Cafe also a great plade at the end of the day to unwind with lush cake! Entertainment was straight from the 70's! Location is quiet but a short walk to restaurants and a couple of decent bars. Staff were all lovely, polite and helpfulMore
