Canifor Hotel
Ranked #13 of 15 Hotels in Qawra
Reviewed 2 June 2014

My friend and I stayed in this hotel from very late on 20th - 27th May 2014. On arrival we found it to be quite pleasent & check in went very smoothly. Room was very clean & remained our whole stay. we were all inclusive which would highly recommend although the dinner was not the best.

Bar staff etc were all very pleasent.

One major issue we found, although didnt affect us was the lack of ramps for people with disabilities.


All in all hotel room was kept very clean but would definatley need redecoration, particularly the rooms bathroom which was v tatty.

Before going to the Canifor and after reading some of the negative reviews, I was concerned. I can only say these reviewers must have been to a different hotel. Our stay was great. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms and amenities were very good, cleanliness was first rate, the rooms were cleaned every day and linen and towels replaced daily. As far as we were concerned, the food was really good, especially dinner. There was a great selection of British, Maltese and Mediterranean meat, fish and vegetables with a superb salad selection. (Perhaps it didn't appeal to the meat and two veg brigade).

It was certainly great value and with the proximity of the Bus Terminus it was a great base for visiting this lovely Island and meeting its friendly and hospitable people. We will certainly be staying at the Canifor again.

Room Tip: Go for the Superior Room

Myself and two friends spent a week at the Canfor from 20 th May for I week half board I've travelled all over Europe and not a fussy person , but this hotel leaves a lot to be desired . The jacuzzi on the roof as advertised in the brochure was out of use and the hot tub / Jacuzzi downstairs had dirty water in it and didn't look inviting at all. The hotel caters for elderly people and this reflects in the state of "entertainment at night .please don't go here if you have children as they will have you up the wall and bored ,.The sunbeds are worse for wear and the mattresses were dirty and sweaty yuk !!!!. We were on the first floor due to walking difficulty of my friend and the carpet in the corridor was heavily stained .we had to use the stairs on many occasions due to the lift constantly breaking down Thank The Lord we weren't in it when it broke down The food is fine but no tea/ coffee making facilities and no fridge as standard You have to HIRE ONE .... No free Wifi and they charge 2 euro for 10 mins . Don't pay it as the local bars do it free for you . We were first timers to Malta and had a brilliant time and we plan to return ,but it won't be to the Canifor .

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool and low floors due to lift constantly breaking down

We visited this hotel three years ago and found then that a face lift was required. We visited again two weeks ago and found nothing had changed. The staff are fine, bedrooms always clean as was the rest of the hotel. The patio area and pool are very small and cramped and at night there is still the continuous sound of the water being pumped back into the pool. In ten days, we only saw the pool being cleaned three times, admittedly it was not used a great deal.
The dining room is much too small and where the buffet is situated, it is difficult for two people to pass. The food is of an acceptable standard but quite often only warm. A very good choice of salads though. If you like synthetic cream cake you are ok with dessert, except when crumble is on the menu! No way would I class this as 4 star. The best feature is the fact you are very close to the bus station and for 6.50 euros for a weekly ticket we travelled all over the island. Even a 1.50 daily ticket is good value. Do not think we will be returning to the Canifor.
