Hotel Qawra Palace  

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.

Great Stay

Stayed at Qawra Palace at the beginning of April for 6 days. We were there for the Lost & Found festival. All the staff were really friendly, and there was a great atmosphere. Hotel was kept clean, maid came to clean the room everyday. Hotel is a bit out dated but for the price, you don't expect glamour! Hotel has plenty to offer and is located in a great location. If you're looking to explore Malta and not worry about the hotel too much; this place is great! Would definitely recommend.More

Stayed here for 6nights during Annie Mac Lost & Found Festival as it was on the list of festival hotels. Place is so old and dated. Nice local location for pubs and restaurants but that's about it. Rooms are so basic and old. The toilets and bath/shower need to be ripped out and along with the room furnishings. Breakfast was included which was nice, good choices. I think other guests were on all inclusive, maybe next year if the hotel allows festival go-ers it could sell daily all inclusive bands for drinks only? I'm not sure the hotel advertised to normal guests that festival people would be staying, however I would be asking for a refund if I was one of them. Even when we came home at 3am, people were still running riot. Staff absolutely useless, checking in took about 30mins. Nobody really could answer any questions either. Pool is horrible and needs a CLEAN. The colour of the pool floor was brown. Nobody swam at all. The wifi is no existent - you need to be in the lobby and even then it is hit or miss. Wouldn't stay again and would try some of the more up-to-date hotels round the corner.More

Brilliant for the price.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 5 nights as we came out for the AMP festival. The reception staff were helpful and the breakfast was nice every morning. For the price you can't fault it. Rooms were clean but dated and basic. Swimming pool is a great feature of the hotel. Overall I enjoyed my stay. More

Unsure how I feel about it

Recently stayed at this hotel, I have mixed feelings. The staff were very helpful and could not do enough for you, they were very friendly and I enjoyed having a bit of friendly banter in the restaurant during the meals. The meals were ok. They were a bit bland and the veg often under cooked, there is a separate children's menu and vegetarian menu on request. The indoor pool was great though small and during my stay was filled with uncontrollable children who were not supervised and making the pool unusable. The location was good bus stop was outside and a bus station a short 5 minute walk away. For the price it wasn't bad but if you want luxury then perhaps staying somewhere else would be a good idea.

Definitely not four star...rude staff and very out dated!

I stayed at the Qawra Palace Hotel for 6 nights from the 1st of April. We arrived late on the 1st to a rude check in from their night receptionist, barely a word spoken from her. We had two rooms on the seventh floor which looked out to the dirty looking courtyard style square in the middle of the hotel, this could do with a good lick of paint! The shower in the room dribbled out the water, however the bathroom appears to have recently been refurbished to a nice standard, just not sure why didn't you refurb the entire room? We had the half board option here and the food was fantastic - great selection for everyones tastes, including sushi and carvery style meats. The waiting staff were again, extremely rude. Tables never seemed to be laid out and they would shout at you in Maltese if you went to get cutlery from another table. The outdoor pool was very cold so never bothered with using it, also the hotel cheekily ask you to pay to rent out the cushions for the pool loungers - which were as thin as your finger. The hotels' WiFi was a joke. Only decided to work when it wanted to, when I went to the reception to ask about this I got the response "not my problem" from what appeared to be the hotel manager! We booked this hotel as apart of the Annie Mac Lost and Found Festival package which was going on over the easter weekend in Malta. The hotel was half full of ravers and the rest OAPs! I would recommend next year that Qawra Palace perhaps make this hotel just for the festival goers? Would limit the countless complaints that were being flown about by the older generation towards us whilst we were staying at the hotel. For what we paid for the entire trip (including the Festival tickets) I shouldn't complain too much, however if I booked this hotel with the expectation of a four-star stay, I would be bitterly dissapointed.More
