Canifor Hotel

TripAdvisor Review
Malta and Gozo, Europe
Qawra

Sun seekers rejoice – here's a holiday hotspot that's refreshingly laidback. Qawra, up at the North Eastern tip of the archipelago is the place to be for its attractive pebbly beaches, its array of water sports activities and, of course, its sunshine.

One of the island's premier places to stay, the Canifor Hotel brings you four star facilities right in the heart of Qawra. Famed for its friendly and attentive service, it's one of those 'you won't have to lift a finger' hotels – the staff will do whatever they can to ensure you have a really relaxing holiday.

The sun, scenery and impressive service make the Canifor Hotel a top holiday choice:

As soon as you arrive at the Canifor Hotel you'll know you're in for a treat. The impressive reception area shows that this is a hotel of real quality. And it's ideally situated for whatever kind of holiday you want. There are flat, pebbly beaches at St. Pauls and Salina Bays – both wonderful places to take a dip and catch some rays.

The Canifor Hotel is just the sort of base you need. The en suite rooms are all fully air-conditioned and come with direct dial phone, radio and mini cooler. Each has its own balcony too.

There are certainly lots of incentives to spend time in the hotel, whether it's for a dip in the indoor or outdoor pools (or Jacuzzi for a bit of a treat), or a quick tan top up on the terrace. To really get you relaxing, you can even have a massage (there is a charge for this service) – just one more way that the Canifor Hotel really looks after you.

Qawra gives you all the ingredients for a perfect Maltese holiday – and one of the most important is the Canifor Hotel itself. As soon as you're booked in, you'll begin to relax and enjoy the perfect laidback lifestyle.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

The Local Area

The Canifor is a very pleasant 4-star hotel offering high levels of service and comfort. It is situated just a few minutes from the attractive Qawra promenade and between St. Paul's Bay and Salina Bay.

In both bays, there is ample opportunity for bathing off the flat rocks of the shoreline which are also popular for sunbathing. Guest facilities include an attractive reception foyer, a restaurant and bar lounge, both overlooking the swimming pool. There is also an indoor heated pool as well as a coffee shop.

HOTEL ACCOMMODATION- MALTA

Having recently returned from the Canifor which I go to twice a year for long stay, I would like to recommend the Canifor Hotel. A fair price for what you get, rooms are cleaned every day by your maid and towels changed. Rooms are air conditioned and comfortable...

Outdoor pool, sun terrace and jacuzzi on roof. Good food and friendly staff. Live entertainment in the evenings and big lounge bar with large TV. Very local to shops, bars and restaurants and bus station.Overall a good hotel for your money.

You get what you pay for

Air conditioner is controlled by hotel; ceiling fan is potent but it’s no substitution for a strong A/C, especially with this summer heat. Gym is very small, and again, barely any A/C; carpet needs a deep clean and gym requires more equipment for weight lifting. Front desk staff and housekeeping staff are very pleasant and helpful...

However, nothing pleasant can be said about one of the women in the morning who serves the breakfast; she’s rude with certain people and this is something that has been experienced first hand more than once; this person has no business in customer service, is all. Overall, price is good for what you get — which is a clean bed, clean bathroom, TV, and mini fridge. Not to mention a pool outside.

HORRIBLE! DON'T STAY HERE EVER

The hotel was dated , staff was incredibly rude and racist. We were in all inclusive and the only good thing were the drinks . Food was really bad, frozen and re heated. Lunch were leftovers from yesterdays dinner and etc....

No fruit ,only one desert which was always the same and to use the leftovers.. The rooms were dirty when we did the check in even tho they said it was ready And the WORST part were insects everywehere. they cleaned and next day it would be there again.. 1 week like this... spoken to manager everyday and nothing changed. only last day they offered to change our room . according to cleaning staff there is a gell they can use to stop this but its too expensive so manager doesnt authorize... the only use Raid (insect spray)

The city was great but this hotel just destroyed the whole experience

Excellent value for money...

Review by KeefsDrumStix Wembley, United Kingdom

Had 3 weeks in The Canifor. Paid about £500.

The room was really good...

Basic. But the shower and bathroom nice and clean. Beds very comfortable and fridge worked (although if you take your key card out, it goes off).

Air-con? Lack thereof a bit hit and miss and as it was hot, kind of was needed but the fan on the ceiling was ample.

Food? Had a few breakfasts. Sausages, bacon, scrambled egg? What's not to like.

All staff I encountered were very friendly and accomodating.

Cleaning was exceptional.

Highly recommended for a budget hotel that's central to everything.
