Stayed at the cardor appartments, clean and everything u need for a basic stay. We had only paid £10 per night so weren't expecting much but pool was nice. Just a shame there was work going on next door so was extremely noisy. However wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Cheap and cheerful.

I stayed here for a week on a half board basis with my husband from 15 to 22nd March. This is not a 4 star hotel. The range and quality of the food was disappointing. It was the same each morning and certainly each evening therefore we choose to eat at some of the local restaurants instead. We had to...

The MTA (Maltese Tourist Authority) must update the stars on this hotel, we visited 4 Star hotels on the Island and this is not 4 Star!! Staff were rude and unhelpful, in their defence this is probably due to the relentless complaints they received!! The food is poor, no mattress covers, roof terrace is a mess, indoor pool looked dirty!!...

We read the reviews and we can say that some of them are very unfair, the rooms were clean so were the bathrooms, the staff were very good and the food was good too, ok I personally wouldn't eat everything on the menu, but who would go to a restaurant and eat the entire menu ? There was always something...
