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.
Sea view room great indoor swimming pool small had all inclusive food not bad not a lot for kids if they are fussy, drinks poor every thing tasted watered down not a lot off choice bar in dining room dismal outside bar in need of a complete overhaul. Only bar with sitting in was in the reception area but not in the all inclusive deal have to pay for drinks entertainment was for locals or people over ninety.More

Good quality 3 Star Hotel in Qawra
The hotel itself is clean and functional and was full when we stayed. The rooms are large and reasonably well equipped with a flat screen TV with a couple of English channels,a fridge and plenty of storage space for clothes etc along with a decent bathroom with a walk in shower. Having read previous reviews much has been said about having a sea view room rather than an inside room. We stayed in an inside facing room which looked down into the centre courtyard where there is a small mini golf area. Whilst some previous reviewers have found this something to complain about, to us it was not a problem as we were out from after breakfast until in the evening.(Note the sea view rooms at the front do have view across the bay and bigger balconies, However due to the position of the hotel they only get the sun until around lunch time!!) There is an indoor pool and 2 Jacuzzi pools which lead out to the lido area where the main pool and bar area is. The coffee shop at the front of the hotel has a good selection of food and coffees and is good value and the sandwiches are very tasty. We had read many "stories" regarding the food in the restaurant and so we will try to give an honest objective opinion. For breakfast there was the usual selection of breads, cheese, cold meats and cereals as well as a hot selection including bacon, sausage, eggs etc . For dinner there was again cold cuts of cheese and meat, salads and soup for starters followed by a selection of hot dishes generally 1 fish, 1 pasta and a couple of meat dishes accompanied by assorted potato and vegetable choices followed by a varied dessert selection. You also need to be aware that any drinks you require need to be purchased outside before entering the restaurant( slight inconvenience but nothing major). The food as with all catering "en mass" for 200 plus guests in tourist hotels is buffet service and for the most part was hot and tasty although by the end of the week slightly repetitive and if you were one of the later guests in for dinner some selections may not be available and may not be piping hot. This is not a criticism, as my wife who is a catering manager pointed out,This is a limitation of all buffet style restaurants anywhere in keeping food hot. In summary the hotel is a good quality 3 Star Hotel in a good position overlooking the sea with a good range of facilities.More
I previously stayed at this Hotel about 24 years ago among my many visits to Malta both before and after, but did not return as I wanted to try other Hotels. I will not be doing that in the foreseeable future, as the Qawra Palace exceeded my expectations and I will certainly return. The Hotel is large and very active, the staff are busy, but very friendly and helpful. I had read previous reviews and booked a sea view room as advised, which proved a good move. The room had recently been renovated and was extremely clean and maintained. The beds were very comfortable and the view was lovely. I stayed on a half board basis, as I like to get about during the day, but I must say that the breakfast / dinner choices and quality was excellent, and the chef's could certainly give some lessons to other local hotels of the same rating. I did overhear some grumbles from other guests, but personally I couldn't fault the Hotel at all. Qawra is a tourist area and to appreciate the lovely island of Malta you should travel a little to experience the delights of this living museum. Car Hire is cheap, although you will need nerves of steel, buses are frequent and inexpensive and the bus station is only a short walk from the Hotel. Organised trips are available through tour guides and there is a desk in the hotel for booking more adventures. Thank-you Qawra Palace for a lovely stay, keep up your standards and I will see you later in the year.More

Nice hotel in the sun
We had wonderful weather for our weeks stay at the Qawra Palace. Very friendly and polite staff, the hotel and rooms were very clean and the walk in showers were great. I would rate this a 3 star not 4 star hotel. Although a kettle is provided, tea and coffee is not, so take your own.There is a small shop next door that sells water, toiletries, sunscreen, as well as 2 shops selling souvenirs within the hotel. There is a coffee shop at the front of the hotel for snacks although not included in the meal plan but nice for a change. The hotel food is plentiful but maybe not very good for vegetarians. There was entertainment every evening and locals came in to dance. Loved the pool area and pool bar, overlooking the sea, watching the watersports and sail boats passing by. No beach but you can swim from the rocks., Bus stops and pick up for sightseeing buses across the street. As we were leaving the hotel was getting the open air pizzaria ready for the season but there are other restaurants very close by and Bugibba is just around the bay, about 20 minute walk away.
Would highly recommend the sea view rooms rather than the non seaview that only look out onto the courtyard. We will return next April and stay longer. There is a charge for safes and WIFI but WIFI is free in the hotel next door and some of the restaurants close by.More
