Recent guest reviews

Read quite a few reviews after we had booked our holiday and some of them where pretty poor. We found this hotel great value for money . Rooms serviced every day, staff constantly cleaning foyer corridors etc varied menu daily great food and plenty of it very pleasant staff .The hotel is well situated for local transport and local bars. Lots of activities and entertainment was provided in the hotel during the day and evenings Would definitely stay there again

Qwara palace is a lovely hotel.Why do people feel the need to moan about anything and everything. Returned 19th sept 2017 after a lovely week's holiday with my daughter. On arrival checked in quickly by pleasant staff. Food is very good , varied choices morning and evening. Location is great .Pool area is nice and cleaned down every evening. Room was nice complete with kettle and mugs, so remember your teabags/coffee from home. We were half board so didn't expect free teabags. We will definitely be returning to this hotel.Come on Brits STOP MOANING. !!!! So good have booked to go again March 2018.

We may have just been very unlucky however here is an honest review of the Qawra Palace from a travel agent wasnt expecting the ritz but going home riddled with bed bug bites isnt what we expected!! - arrived on Saturday night room 246 - on arrival the room absolutely stunk of foist and must - couldnt even hang the clothes up in the wardrobe because of a foul smell Breakfast the next morning was not the best - I am not a fussy eater the scrambled egg was ok Pleased we were only bed and breakfast as travelled around Malta having stayed prior to this in Sliema - the Palace plenty of nice restaurants around Malta On the Monday evening my partner started to notice bites around his head down my back and on the back of ,my hand thought it was bit strange as not warm enough for Mozzies and none had been seen On arrival back into Newcastle Airport on Tuesday afternoon my partner said to me your ears are covered in bites - and they were starting to weep - quick visit to the GP and they have confirmed they are bed bug bites! Worried sick we have bought the little critters back with us everything we took has undergone a deep clean Second visit to the GP today as the bites are infected and now on a course of anti biotics - cheers QAWRA Palace As I said i was not expecting the ritz as it was a cheap deal for 3 nights - definitely a case of you get what you pay for - I should of known better given the industry I work in!! Defo returning to Malta but definitely not to the QAWRA Palace!!

Have just returned from Qawra Place.We we worried about going as there were some bad reviews.We were pleasantly surprised,been updated since we last went.Rooms were spacious and spotless. Food was good and hot.All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only downside was the weather but couldn’t do anything about that.Enjoyed it very much.

Don't let it's 3 star rating put you off, we had a fantastic time here. It has been recently upgraded and I think its closer to a 4 star, (see pics) rooms spacious enough with a balcony (our view was the courtyard which is ok - sea view would have been nicer but they had run out) but it was very clean. Buffet area was nice and food was good, usually 3 different meal choices, maybe one extra would have been good. There's a lovely coffee shop/evening bar area near reception where you can sit and people watch. Pool area lovely however pool was freezing!!! Only my partner braved getting in, I just paddled! Lovely cafe bit by the pool doing ice cream, hot dogs, burgers etc etc. Lovely views over the sea. Also out of the hotel take a right down the main road and there's a lovely place called "Cheeky Monkey" great for food/cocktails with a super view. plus bus stop is there too if you want to go exploring. We also hired a car from the place under the hotel - fantastic service and very very good value. Enjoy your holiday here, Malta is lovely - thy the Blue lagoon for a day trip its fab!

We booked this holiday six weeks before we went for a birthday. We didn’t expect to much with it being *** We were very impressed with the hotel. The room was large and very clean, they were always cleaning round the building. The food was fine always found plenty to choose from and loved the deserts to much!!! We will definitely return to this hotel.

Just returned from a week stay here , first visit to Malta for us we enjoyed our stay here , we was in one of the rooms that look over the courtyard that was ok but I think a sea view room would be nicer , we booked halfboard and upgraded to all inclusive when we arrived which we think was good value it cost us €16 each per day . The meals were ok average for an all inclusive hotel could do with being a little warmer , pool area is nice rooms ok nice location. The bar staff are really good especially Hector he is great always has a smile on his face really friendly and great at his job he is a credit to the hotel, Jordan is also fab really looked after us and is a great guy another credit to the Qawra palace, thank you ,if we visit Malta again we would stay here again .

Have been in this hotel before. Has been refurbished since then. All inclusive. Room not bad. At the back of hotel. Two single beds , just put them together. Kettle and small fridge in room. Even although all inclusive no tea or coffee in room. You have to buy your own. Also you have to pay 1euro for padded mat for sunbed bar staff are great really friendly. Food was good, we liked it. You could get burgers , chicken nuggets, fish and chips and sandwiches at the bar. When going for lunch or dinner in dining room . You have to purchase drinks before you enter. There is also a coffee shop attached to the hotel but not included in all inclusive. Only one thing. Room attendants could be a lot better. Mugs not washed, toilet cleaned but not the seat. A bit haphazard.

I have been here loads of times, but now it feels like a place to chill in. I was rarther dissappointed about the modernisation of some of the hotel such as the reception and the bathrooms. The main meals are not the quality they used to be, i.e. no home made meat pies and the like. The rooms were very clean as was the whole hotel, I would say it was a pleasant stay on the whole

I would like to say this is a very nice hotel. It is very spacious and clean, the pool can get rather busy at times but We never had a problem getting a lounger when needed. The room was very spacious, there was three of us and we did not feel over crowded. But my main reason for giving this review which as a regular traveller I don’t normally do as I’m a very busy person I have to give praise As an all inclusive holiday , a lot of time was spent attending the bar for drinks, which you get by giving a card that is issued on checking in. I would like to give a special mention to two bar staff, who to me stood out the most out of all the staff in the hotel. Firstly Michael, he greeted us our first evening in the tv bar, it was late and we was tired from our travels and off course didn’t know where anything was, but Michael took time out to explain times of when food was served and where , he was so pleasant and joyful , also liked telling jokes , he made us all feel at ease within minutes of meeting him. That excellent customer service carried on all through the holiday. Secondly I would like to give a special mention to Joe, Joe mainly worked at the pool bar, again on seeing him on our first evening, he too was so pleasant , welcomed us all with a smile, and was very well mannered for a young man . I’ve He explained how the pool bar worked, the queuing system, and also what drinks and food was available to us. Again all through the holiday he was always smiling and nothing was too much trouble including giving me ice packs on my last day due to me injuring my hand. Working in a bar in such a hot climate is not an easy task, but these two are exceptional bar tenders.
