The sea-view Hotel Qawra Palace comes with all the trimmings, and is just a short walk from the beach and town centre.
The Hotel Qawra Palace is in a great spot. It’s within a 15-minute walk of a couple of beaches – and the shops, restaurants and bars are even closer.
This hotel couldn’t get closer to the sea, with the pool sidling up to the rocky shore. To top things off, there’s plenty of choice when it comes to activities and dining.

I had read a lot of mixed reviews about this hotel, but I decided to book and make up my own mind. We were on a late flight so didn't arrive until 3am, the receptionist was pleasant and efficient in booking us in. Our room was on the fourth floor, overlooking the courtyard. The room was large and spacious and very comfortable, my adult daughters were in a similar room a few doors along the corridor. Breakfast is buffet style and they cater for everyone's taste, including gluten free. It suited us as my husband and girls prefer a full English where I prefer yogurt, cereals and pastries. We didn't have lunch in the restaurant, so cannot comment on the food, we preferred to eat at the pool bar. (We were just too lazy to get changed to eat in the restaurant) the pool bar was great, they served burgers, cheese burgers, hot dogs, fish, chicken dippers, chips, salads, sandwiches, cake, ice cream. There was plenty to choose from, the burgers were huge and very tasty, the salads were also lovely. The evening meal was buffet style and always lots to choose from, there were at least three meat dishes each evening as well as pasta and fish dishes, all the hot food was piping hot. There was always a selection of puddings and were very tasty. All the staff are very polite and greet you with good morning/afternoon. Housekeeping work tirelessly to keep you room clean, tidy and always stocked with fresh towels. The restaurant staff were pleasant clearing away your dirty dishes. The pool bar staff are great, having a laugh and joke with you, always serving you with a smile. A big thanks to Hector, David, Jordan and the others who I didn't manage to get ur name. All the hotel staff work tirelessly to keep the hotel spotlessly clean and tidy 24/7 The only downside, there were a lot of exchange students and at times could be noisy, however, a few sharp words with their teachers soon quietened them down. All in all we had a great holiday and would definitely go backMore
Good but could be better
Will start with the good things first. The room was clean and tidy. Entertanment was good. All staff very polite and helpful. The cafe down stair was lovely nice cakes and lovely cappocinos, lattes and pot of tea. The bad things The food was terrible and watered down fruit juice plus the coffee and tea was horrible out of the machine. loads of flys at the pool when trying to sun bath all over you. The shower room is great but the shower is filling up and water going all over on to the floor. Malta is a beautiful place to go on holiday. More
Not worth the money!
Positives + Sea view, location and breakfast were good. Rooms were clean and tidy. Love Malta but would never stay here again. Negative - Entertainment, allowing glasses and bottles by the pool, no security with locals moving in at the weekend, free wifi a joke (logged into hotel next doors wifi), fidge (or as they call cooler) doesn't function, complained and was told "it stays on all the time when out the room, proved wrong when plugged in kettle and removed room key card, power went off, complained again but nothing was done about it, reception staff not very helpful; and sometimes downright abrupt. Thank goodness we had a sea view because the rest of the rooms look onto each other like a hostel.More
Would stay again
We stayed here for a week all inclusive and had a fabulous time. There were good points and not so good points but overall we felt we had got value for money and would definitely return. The hotel is large with good facilities such as a large outdoor pool, an indoor pool and jacuzzi's as well as a spa, gift shop and mini golf course. The decor of the lobby and common areas appeared to be refurbished and was very pleasant. The location is brilliant, close by to lots of shops and restaurants as well as the bus station and aquarium. We booked two inland rooms and had no issues with them at all. We were not disturbed by any noise, only when on the balcony but that was to be expected and didn't bother us anyway. We actually overheard a guest complaining that his sea view room was noisy. The rooms were spacious and absolutely spotless. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom was a good size and modern, there was effective air con and also a good sized fridge. The only thing I would suggest to improve things would be a light for the balcony (I noticed the sea view rooms had them). We only sat by the pool on one day, the rest of the time we got loungers by the beach just in front of the hotel. Getting loungers by the pool seemed to be tricky as a lot of people get up early to reserve the ones in the shade. The small beach to the front of the hotel is fabulous. It is a rocky shore, with no sand/pebbles but we actually liked this as it meant no annoying sand getting in your suncream or on your towel. You can reserve two loungers and an umbrella for 6 euros all day which we thought was very reasonable as this also included the mattress things they give you to make the loungers more comfortable. It is still right by the pool bar meaning you still have easy access for drinks. The water is beautifully clear and we actually found it warmer than the pool. It also seemed much quieter by the beach as opposed to being by the pool. What let the hotel down a little for us (all of the above gets a 5 star review) was the service and food. Some of the staff, notably the cleaners and restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful but unfortunately we did encounter a few employees (reception and pizzeria) that were rude and unpleasant. The buffet food was basic, but I didn't have the highest hopes so expected this.There was a decent selection and the dessert was the best by far. Breakfast was always very busy, even though we varied the times we ate, and they would run out of fried eggs very quickly and take a while to replace them. There were also occasions when the coffee machine and cold drinks machine would break. One day the croissants were very stale and the toasters were slow and rubbish. The staff did clear your plates quickly from your table however and were very hard working. We ate at the pizzeria twice and were thoroughly disappointed on both occasions. The first time we went we didn't realise we had to book through hotel reception in order to have the meal included in our all inclusive package, which was our fault. We didn't mind too much, we were prepared to dine out several times during our stay to get away from the buffet. Instead of explaining the process to us and apologising the waitress and her supervisor (who the waitress called over to confirm the situation to us) were blunt and standoffish. The rest of the meal went downhill from there, service was very slow despite the restaurant being quiet. The staff were all just stood around talking and leaning on the bar. They were not attentive in the slightest, no checking how the food was or asking if we needed more drinks. The food was okay, nothing spectacular. The whole ambiance and atmosphere just felt odd so we skipped dessert. We decided to return, being that we could have it as part of our AI package (we wouldn't have paid again) and didn't expect much. The menu is more limited when you are there on the AI package and the service was not much better than our first visit. The bruschetta I ordered was revolting but the pizza was delicious. There was no dessert menu, the waitress just told us our options which were very limited (chocolate and vanilla ice cream and two or three types of cake I didn't recognise the name of). Despite the negatives, our stay was overall very good and I would recommend the hotel.More
Popped in while our walking one evening while staying in Malta, lots of staff on hand standing around, however service was very slow and poor. When it came to ordering food and drink found to our surprise that not only do they not sell any Maltese beers (only imported beer) also they didn’t sell Kinnie. Food was okay but nothing special, there are plenty of other restaurants in the area, which do sell more traditional Maltese food.More
