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.

Brilliant hotel

Brilliant hotel lovely food brilliant staff.... Don't believe the negative reviews this place is really nice and the staff are really helpful despite other residents who were rude and wouldn't queue for food... Food was lovely and never the same tea twice

TripAdvisor Review

Please ignore negative reviews !!!!!!!!!.

Our hotel was changed at last minute from the sister hotel. We arrived and from that moment on was very very impressed with the hotel. The room was very clean the beds very comfy. Breakfast the 1st morning was great as we're the dinner's or tea. The staff are very friendly and my brother and I had a great holiday here very central to everything. This hotel wasn't our 1st choice but it will be next year when we escape again. We also met some lovely people who we had a great laugh and joke with. Please try the hotel and see for yourself.

Not a 4 Star Hotel

Review by chrisfitz13 Carlisle, United Kingdom

My Partner and I stayed at The Canifor Hotel for 2 weeks. The room was fair, lighting poor and the view from the balcony was of cranes and concrete. We were half board and the breakfasts were the same every morning with stale bread...

Evening meal was very difficult to decipher what was on offer and sometimes inedible. It was noisy and not a relaxing place to dine. Reception failed to deliver a message and often couldn't understand English properly. All in all this is a " Star Hotel.

Christmas and New Year away

Review by Xaarist Huntingdon, United Kingdom

This hotel could and would be a 5 if it was shown a little tlc. Rooms are comfortable but small and dated. Finishing not up to standard around bathroom fixtures, shower lacked power and head kept drooping...

Balcony in serious need of a coat of paint. Minor things but all add up. 3 star at best as it is
