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.

Malta in winter

My wife and I stayed for a week at the Qawra Palace Hotel from the 7th November to the 14th November. We stayed bed and breakfast in a sea view room. The room was very spacious and the view over the bay from the balcony was lovely, especially in the morning. The bathroom could have done with a bit of a makeover but it was fine for the week and the shower was very good , always plenty of hot water. Beds were very comfortable, although lighting in the room was a bit dim. The food at breakfast was good and plentiful, and we had no problem finding a table. The pool area was fine with plenty of sun beds available. We did use the Caffe Royale in the hotel on two occasions but we're not impressed with the service or the food, although reasonably priced. The hotel is only a 10 minute walk from the bus station, but could be tiring for someone with walking difficulties. The evening entertainment was varied and although not great was fine for a a few drinks after dinner, there was also a wide variety of other activities in the hotel which we did not participate in. We thought the Qawra Palace was excellent value for a winter break and would definitely stay again.More

Pleasantly Suprised

I booked a holiday at this hotel earlier in the year for my husbands 80th birthday treat in November.I have been to Malta before but this was my husbands first visit,but after reading some very negative comments over the following months I began to wonder if I had made the right choice.But however after arriving during a 'cyclone'and a thunder storm we where given a warm and friendly welcome from the reception staff.Our room was large nicely decorated with plenty of extra bedding and pillows, the bathroom was a little 'snug' but spotless clean plenty of towels which were changed daily.The kettle and fridge came in very handy and we could get water and milk from the shop next door.We noticed a lot of fellow guests were regulars on long stay holidays,but because the two top floors were closed for refurbishment the hotel didn't seem to full.The only part of the hotel that could have done with improving was the dining room it seem dull and could do with brightening up,the food was just OK there was always something to eat but the presentation could do with a lot of improvement and with only 1 serving area it must be chaos when the hotel is full to capacity,saying that, the staff were great and worked hard.We used the coffee shop next door if we wanted a lunchtime snack,food was great as well as the staff and the prices very reasonable.We didn't get to see much of the nightly entertainment as the ballroom was always packed but were quite happy to have a drink in the evening at some of the local bars nearby.Overall I was very impressed with this hotel lots of facilities pool area and indoor pool,spa,card room,night club.I noticed a lot of the locals used the hotel at weekends so cant be bad.More

Hotel a tired old lady

3 weeks was too long. We had an inland view, and the room was very gloomy. Thin and frayed bedding and towels. I mentioned to the rep that most meals were cold & served on cold plates. He told me that all hot food was probed & the food was always hot. I again mentioned this to a waiter & he said there are a lot of complaints about cold food. Miraculously after that the food was hotter also the plates. The indoor heated pool was too shallow for an adult to swim, the outside pool was freezing. The pool bar was excellent, good snacks until 1 November when the menu changed.Out with pizza, sandwiches and chips, in with cottage pie and steak pie. Who wants that sitting round a pool? Another niggle is the air con wasn't working which meant we were either roasted at night or bitten if the doors were left open. Most of the staff were pleasant apart from some of the receptionists who were on the grumpy side. On the plus side, the waterfront was adjacent to the pool which was great, and the bus stop is 2 minutes down the road. Great for visiting Valletta.More

Loved it

I've stayed for a week this June and had a great time. Do NOT expect a 4 star luxury hotel by any means. What you'll get is a spotlessly clean en-suite room, comfy bed, a good breakfast (forget the orange juice and have your morning coffee at the hotel's coffee shop if you know what's good for you) and a pleasant pool area plus direct access to the sea. The staff is OK, Sylvana at the reception desk is very helpful. Take advantage of the EUR 6.50 weekly bus ticket and see the island for yourself. It's worth it!!! I'll definitely be back next year.More

hoangyal, Budapest, Hungary

had a nice week

We have stayed about one week and enjoyed! The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable but it is not real a 4* hotel. Much more like 3* Rooms very simple furnished without rugs and minibar empty (can be used as fridge if you buy your own drinks) Wi_fi is not free. Breakfast is good and with nice choice. The staff is helpful and warm. Every evening they offer a free entertainment with local talents. The prices of the extras are reasonable and also the prices of their coffee shop which includes a wide range of good cakes, salads and of course drinks. Recommended for couples without childrenMore
