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 are dressed in a palette of blues and yellows. They all have good-sized balconies, too. For the best views, request one that looks out to the sea.
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.
just returned today. This was our second visit in two years. Firstly ALL the Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had three generations, my parents (in their eighties), myself and hubby, and my daughter (24). We all had a great time. Our rooms were on 8th floor with seaview. We were in half board, food was very adequate and varied even for a vegetarian! The cleaner did fantastic job. Ok the evening entertainment wasn't brilliant but quite entertaining. Would certainly return again in futureMore

Average hotel, good location
Me and my boyfriend decided to come to malta on holiday. The location of the hotel is great, very close to Bugibba where there are lots of bars and restaurants and things going on. It is also very close to the bus terminal which is handy if you plan on getting the bus to places.
It was also right on the sea (which was warmer than the hotel pool) which is nice to swim in- take your snorkles as there are lots of fish!! The rooms are basic, if you don't pay for a sea view, the balconys look out to other peoples balconys- not great. The air con in the rooms was very good!
We went half board which is fine, breakfast was quite good, had a variety of choice. Dinner was okay, lots of choice, but not always amazing food. I would recommend swapping your dinner voucher to go to the pizzeria which was very nice!
There are indoor pools and jacuzzis which are nice and the football was shown in the bars which was good. Staff are friendly and helpful. Entertainment every evening, although it was only people singing each night!
Overall, it was okay, good location, basic facilities, but still good and we enjoyed our stay.More

Rip of Qawra
Six of arrived on the 9/9/2014 the first impression was tired looking but clean until we got to our rooms well opened the balcony door to greeted with a sight you wouldnt believe internal veiw of the over packed hotel it looked like a council block of a third world countrystill close the curtains and make the best of it untill i asked to use the iron etc only to be asked for 2.50 euros for the pleasure.Went to buy a bottle of water double the price from the shop up the road .had a shower in one ofe the smallest bathrooms ive ever seen went to dry myself ive seen face flannels bigger and the towels are so thin it has to be seen .Went for dinner in a dinning room size to fit at a push 300 only find over 900 people joking for a table which was so tightly packed it was a hazzard to escape in a emergancy. The waiter staff real couldnt give a toss ti them it was a bugg bear to help there were a few older staff that were okay . went outside for the evening entertainment well the hotel has a open door policy and the locals pile in with there one bottle of water take over a lot of the tables so gewt there qoick then the locals start what can only be desribe as a poor strickly come dancing it was enteraining at times but we paid a lot for this well the only good thing the air con was one the best and the pool was lovely except for the weekend whenit would fill up with the locals .one last thing the food is digusting take it or leave it is there policy .One star at a pushMore

2nd visit to Malta
This was our second holiday at the Qawra Palace Hotel not a lot has changed since last year,
room clean, but needed a coat of paint, bathroom ok but again needed upgrading towels were not good much too thin poor quality. We had a sea view room which overlooks the road at front of hotel, this suited us, there is some traffic noise during the day, although is quiet after 11.30 and sleeping was no problem. Bedding clean but again quality poor. Staff were pleasant and helpful.
We were on H/B basis breakfast good choice, cooked breakfast not always as hot as it could be, overall quality could be improved, Dinner again plenty of choice but not always well cooked although we always found something to eat, salad table quite good. All drinks had to be paid for during dinner even water and coffee, I feel that a jug of water and coffee should be part of the meal. Evening Entertainment is provided in the pool area and is OK. Pool area is comfortable and well maintained and swimming in sea and pool very enjoyable. On the whole Qawra Palace hotel is good value for money if you book as a deal with the right company. Do not expect 4 Star quality. Good coffee shop at hotel plenty of choices of food and reasonable prices and pleasant staff. Hotel location is good close walking distance to Bugibba lovely walk along the headland.More

A very pleasant holiday
Mike and Wendy G
We have stayed at this hotel on many occasions and found it to be informal,pleasant with very friendly staff.The attractive pool/entertainment area, large comfortable rooms (especialy the air conditioning) and an extensive choice of food, and with it`s location and easy access to buses make it and ideal choice.
Malta has a great deal to offer, If you travel around the island and are respectful to the Maltese people, show an interest in their country you will be rewarded with an exellent holiday.More
