“Good value for the price we paid”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2012

We (3 couples) have just returned from a11 nights stay at the apartments and i have to weigh up what we actually got for the £159.35 per couple for the 11 nights bed & breakfast. Firstly yes you do not get any utensils not even a kettle or toaster but that is why you get a breakfast thrown in. You can hire the kettles and toasters if you wish from reception at a reasonable price but we took cheapy £5.00 Tesco ones with us but let the delighted cleaners have them when we returned. As for plates knives & forks they don't mind you taking some from the breakfast room as long as you return them to the breakfast room before you leave (fair enough). As for the rooms we had a living room with 2 beds in it with the kitchen further in, then a bathroom and finally a bedroom with 2 single beds.You have a patio door out of the bedroom onto a tiny balcony about a Metre wide by 2 Metres long and we looked out onto the swimming pool area of the Canifor Hotel behind us. You have a fan on the wall in the living room area and one on the wall in the bedroom. You also have an air con unit in the bedroom but you have to pay 3 Euro per day for this if you want it , we did not use it but sometimes i wish we had paid for it as it can get very warm in the apartments even with the fans on full blast. We moved the mattresses about until we had the most comfortable of the four, as per previous reviews some of them are pretty worn out. Overall the rooms were cleaned every day by very cheerful cleaners and the towels changed when you wanted them, the reception staff were very friendly as well. We had perfect weather 34° most days, the bus station is 100 Mtrs down the road with plenty of restaurants close by. Across the road about 30 Mtrs away there are two bars close together. Firstly an expensive Murphy's Irish bar which the six of us went to on our first night but its run by a rude Maltese man no Irish and were promptly told it is 12.20pm you can have one drink then you must leave as i shut at 1pm and that means i am out of the door at 1pm none of us went back there again after that. The second bar is Simons Elvis bar which has an Elvis Presley theme but the hosts Simon & Josie were very friendly and had some good shows in the bar including a very good Elvis tribute guy on Mondays and Fridays even though i was not a fan of Elvis this guy was good. Lastly when we arrived at the airport we were ushered to a Taxi office of White taxis where we had to pay for two taxis (3 people in each) 25 Euro per taxi before you got in them to go to Qawra. Most of the way both drivers were on their mobile phones and hardly spoke to us. We asked Simon in the Elvis bar if he could organise our return taxi and we got a mini bus with a very friendly (Gino) the taxi driver for 30 Euro. It pays to ask around for your taxi back as i think you get ripped off at the airport. So to sum it all up for the money we paid for the apartments it worked out at just over £14.00 per couple per night and for what we got for the money we cannot complain it was very good value. Thank you to all the staff.

Room Tip: When its hot hire the air con.

The rooms are in a poor state of repair and although we had a fridge and microwave there were absolutely no self catering utensils, cutlery or crockery. Breakfast was basic and the same thing everyday. The pool is tiny and dirty. The worst thing about our stay was the service from the staff at reception who were frankly rude and it seemed as they resented the presence of the guests, we never asked them for anything other than our key but this was basically thrown at us.

Basic apartment, four beds (only two of us). Very noisy wherever you choose to sleep - in the front, road and people noise, in the back where we did sleep - people shouting, doors slamming (can't be shut quietly for some reason) the bed my husband slept in was incredibly noisy whenever he changed position. Breakfast which my husband thoroughly enjoyed cooked, fresh fruit and bread (toaster available to toast your own) and jams. Room cleaned most days, cleaners friendly and happy, bathroom bin often not emptied though, kitchen bin not emptied couple of times. Clean towels every day, sheets weren't changed for the full fortnight. We like to go self catering to eat out every day - may as well been at home. Very limited menus just about everywhere in Qawra - pizzas, pastas, burgers on all menus with little other choice compared to other holidays we've been on. Was a good base for exploring though. The local buses great value for getting around on, save if you buy a weekly ticket and use them for as many journeys as you wish. Downside - streets very narrow, wing mirrors get taken off cars (that was our bus driver), some of Qawra and Buggibba one way so go round where you've just been to get to next street. Terrible drivers, don't take any notice of roundabout rules or any others, tailgateing, constantly swapping lanes, half of drivers still use mobiles when driving, kids not in car seats or even fastened in. City sightseeing buses were good for hop on hop off. Easy to get to Gozo using bus then ferry across. Not brilliant weather arrived late Sat 1st, by midday Sun thunder storms, Mon thunder storms, 4.2mm rain in 2hrs (average for sept 4mm). Rest of week hot n sunny, 2nd week mixed - quite windy and more rainy spells towards the end. Highlight of my holiday was the longest lightening storm i've ever experienced watching, over the sea was fantastic.

I booked this holiday and then read the reviews on trip advisor which were very mixed. We arrived at the hotel in the early hours of the morning and were welcomed and shown to our room (apartment). The room was clean - and there was nothing to complain about. The food was good (we had half board) and there was always a choice. Towels were changed every day, the room was cleaned every day and sheets changed several times. What more can we say - a good holiday - friendly staff - and a clean tidy place to stay.

just got back from malta we have been to plenty of hotels in malta over the past 30 years normally staying in what they call 4 star? this time for some reason we thought we should have a go in a 3 star ! next time we will be going back to the 4 star,we only use hotels as a base as we like to tour around the island,so back to the POINT clean rooms clean towels good breakfast not so good evening meals we booked half board and after our first evening meal decided to eat out for the rest of our stay.didnt use the pool so no comment didnt use the bar as there are plenty of bars in and around Qawra,used the local buses for half the time these are just the job for getting to the popular places then hired a small car for our favorite spots.we would recomend this hotel to others on budget but only on B/B.

As a young couple me and my girlfriend were looking for a cheap get a way. Yes for Dinner you had to go to another Hotel but that was no problem as it had a higher star rating than the Qawra Point Holiday Complex. VALUE FOR MONEY, rooms were so spacious we actually had 2 bedrooms so we used one for Storage for the Suitcases. Rooms were Cleaned every day, Location Excellent, bars, restaurants and main square all in close range of the Holiday Complex. All staff and locals spoke great English. Yes the pool was tiny just a big blow up one really but I struggled to see any hotel with a big pool the week I was there and we done a lot of walking trust me! There is so much to do and there was plenty of buses to take new places each day although we never opted for that as we enjoyed this resort.
