If you are thinking of going here dont here are my list of faults 1 there is a mini bar in the room but it is comp empty so if you arrive during the night you cant get a drink of water 2 there is no porter to help you to your room 3 we were all inclusive but if you wanted bottled water you had to pay they onlygave it in a carafe as i didnt know where itcame from i didnt take any 3you had to pay to hire a mattres for your sunbed and they did not give towles for the pool 4 the food was average at best 5 they were slow at clearing the tables and this made it difficult to get one 6 ther are only 3 lifts an at busy times you had to wait for ages Finaly if you are under 70 dont even conzider staying here

First the good points - we love the location of this hotel (we've been coming for several years) and we love the rooms which are clean and spacious. Unfortunately, however, this year we had a big problem with the dining experience. I don't know whether the opening times in the restaurant are shorter, or there are more people staying but it was absolute bedlam trying to have a nice meal. They have removed the table cloths so it's like being in a canteen, plus that makes the noise unbearable. We were having to eat at the very last moment just to get a bit of peace and quiet. Also the staff are less friendly, rushing round complaining about having too much to do! Tables weren't cleared, it was not the best experience. Also, I wonder if there are more cost-cutting measures going on - the air conditioning didn't work and the temperature of the water in the jacuzzi was cold! (Which is not just unpleasant but unhygienic! probably why the smell of chlorine in there was so overpowering it made our eyes run!) Such a shame as we've enjoyed many a holiday here.

Stayed here as part of a well priced all inclusive break. The staff were helpful and the rooms were basic but clean. The food was buffet style with a fair amount of choice and was well presented. The all inc red wine was drinkable but unremarkable. The white was poor on some evenings. The entertainment was entertaining particularly one female vocalist who has a great voice. Great view from sea view rooms but also some noise from road works and traffic. All in all It served our needs well and a few small tweaks would make it even better. Try the spa the massage is very good.

Went here today for the buffet lunch. When I booked I was led to believe it was fabulous. Reception chap ignored me, kept his head down knowing he had customers. The food is of really poor quality considering it's a 4* hotel. The buffet counter staff so miserable. Why work there if so unhappy? I asked one of them to top up the mussels as the dish was full of empty shells. He took it away & just placed a few more mussels on top of the empty shells. Won't be going back.

the hotel has had face lift but not finished off, the food very poor for 4 star their was a shortage of staff, the dining room staff not very pleasant, the bed room again had a face lift but poor attention to the finish the electric wiring for the hair drier dangerous lights not working,the toilet seat loos the water from the sink tap poor,the bead very hard the curtains hanging off over all the hotel was clean,

The location of the hotel lets it down, as it is a decent enough place. The staff seem pleasant and the rooms are clean. The inland facing rooms are a bit disappointing, with all having a view of all the other balconies, so very little privacy. Safe keys have to be paid for, which is non refundable. Surprisingly there is no free Wi-Fi. This has to be bought from reception. Food was generally good, and the all inclusive drinks were the usual "local" brands. Depending on the time of year the hotel is full of either teenage ravers, or the elderly, with the entertainment geared towards the elderly group. The area lets the hotel down as there is very little to do or see in Qawra, other than building works and tower cranes. Buggiba is a short walk away, and there is a bit more to see and do here, although there is still a lot of building and road works being carried out. There is very little Maltese about the area, with British / Irish pubs being the norm. To sum up, decent hotel in a disappointing area.

first room 277 hole in the door very small balcony pipes running water next to the bed keeping you awake reception gave wrong information told us the captain morgan trip was better than telling us what bus to take to gozo. we wanted to visit ta pinu he told us the captain morgan trip cover that it didnt. we had a 15 min stop to shop only managed a loo trip 45 min trip to victoria managed a very quick lunch. no visit to ta pinu back on the ferry stuck on hot mini bus no air con. visit to comino saw nothing no space on the beach an hour sat on the ferry i wont visit this hotel again if the reception guy didnt know why send us cost a lot of money for nothing

This was our 3rd stay at the Qwara Palace and we have stayed at other hotels on Malta but would always return if I wanted absolute assurance of what I am booking and what to expect in the way of cleanliness, food, location and staff friendly. We stayed half board but upgraded to all inclusive on one trip just for convenience. It was cheaper to up grade in the resort. The last time however as we were out an about more we stayed half board but transferred our evening meal to lunches which meant that our afternoons were free and we were able to explore all the wonderful independent establishments in the evening. Hotel staff are very friendly and the food is very good. Everywhere is very clean and nothing is too much trouble for all hotel employees. All operators for trips were happy to pick up and drop off at the Hotel as it is very well known. We upgraded to a front sea view which was worth it and our views were very nice. The back rooms view are not so good so I would advise the extra for the upgrade. It won't break the bank and in my opinion is worth the view of the local boats and you can watch the world go by while having a cup of tea on your balcony whilst deciding what to do for the remaining of the day. I am hoping to book again this year and I have even kept my old room number to request. I am very much a person who says what they see and just expect value for money. This hotel is not the cheapest but certainly not the most expensive. The pool area is great and direct access to the beach area from the pool. Access is via the hotel tunnel under the road and so very safe for children. The entertainment is very middle of the road but if you like to ballroom dance or just shuffle around the floor or watch or listen and sing along you will find something to enjoy. The indoor bars have more modern music when available and there is sky sports to watch. Wifi is available at a cost but is slow compared to the uk however the local bars do have free hotspots if you can't do without it.

Only stayed bed and breakfast. Room clean, supplied cup and kettle but no tea or coffee. good location on sea front. staff at reception pleasant , didn't have time to find out what the evening entertainment was like. think suitable for older people.

I have visited this hotel before and always had a good experience however this time the hotel was taken over by people attending a rave set on by radio 1 dj Annie mac ! There were about 50 young men and women who were very noisy , playing music and swearing around the pool, also they returned to the hotel at 0400 and had no regard for the other guests trying to sleep, the police came to the room next door and a lot of shouting took place outside my door . The next night which I was glad was our last was ruined again at 0400 with them arguing and shouting to another couple outside the door! If you are thinking of going avoid Easter . Last year the guests were moved out so they could have the whole hotel ! I can see now why we stick them in a field in tents in the uk !! It's a shame because I have had some good holidays here . I can't fault the staff or the food but something needs to be sorted for the future as I hear this is a yearly event .
