Canifor Overview

The Canifor Hotel, classified as a four star property, is situated in the north part of Malta in St.Paul’s Bay. It is located just a few minutes away from the striking Qawra promenade where guests can find a variety of tourists’ activities and attractions including shops, bars and restaurants, a casino, bingo halls, a salsa club and various diving centers. The bus terminus, which is conveniently located just 50 meters away from the hotel, gives guests the possibility to venture outside St. Paul’s Bay.

The beautiful 4-star hotel offers the following in its All-inclusive package:

Food and drinks:

·         The Oak Tree Lounge bar offers both foreign and local wines, spirits, beers and other beverages from 10am to 11pm.

Not 4 Star But Would Stay Again

Room small, but adequate for me. Shower drained water very slowly. Had to hire remote for tv, and also, hire tea and coffee making facilities, and more amazingly pool towels, at a cost of 3 EUROS deposit ( refundable) 3 EUROS to hire for duration, and 1 EURO charge every time you wanted to change your pool towel. Food average, pools both ok, but way too salty, half the staff were amazing and helpful, other half ignorant and rude.

Relaxing break

We were slightly disappointed when we arrived to be told we were in an apartment when we had booked the hotel but as it was a short break we just went with it, apartments very basic but clean, if we had been staying longer we would have asked to be changed as we booked the hotel (the apartments have a different name), food was nice, a few choices, tasty and plenty of it, pool area clean and relaxing, overall a good short break.

The best thing about my stay was...

Staff were friendly and everywhere was clean.

Very clean

The rooms were comfortable spotless and beds were comfortable and again spotless. Towels changed daily. Maid service every day and the were all very pleasant and do great work. Most if the staff were very friendly and most helpful. John one if the night porters was lovely as was the 2 head waiters they did a fantastic job and we're so friendly and helpful. Housekeeping staff all lovely. There was some building going on but that did not bother us these jobs gave to be done. So many thanks to all the staff who looked after us so well I would have no hesitation recommending the canifor.

Mosquito problem

Placed in Canifor Court down the road in an apartment from 21/8 -24/8 sadly very basic, worn bed linen, broken fridge, dodgy shower, moved to two roomed apartment at a cost of 60 Euros, also had to pay eco tax, hotel reception nice and cool but that area, lower ground floor and dining room harbours very menacing mosquitoes, I have asked staff to fumigate the place, most tourists covered in nasty bites. Food at evening meal is good, great location, good maid service, but our room had a rattling ceiling fan and noisy air con, drains around pool need cleaning out as they smell of rotten eggs. Cheap hotel, decent food, good location but there could be lots of improvements made.
