Just reteurned from the Canifor Hotel and i must say having read the revues before we went made me wonder if we were doing the right thing. Our worries were totally unfounded and the hotel was excellent. Arrived at Malta airport and a taxi took us straight to hotel which was approx 45 mins away. We arrived at hotel at 8;45 and checked in by the very good hotel staff, he advised us that we needed to hurry as dinner closed at 9.00pm that night which was later due to arrivals. Our rooms were basic, 4 beds, leather 2 seater chair, 2 other xhairs, table, wardrobes and safe box , telephone, iron, teasmaid, TV bathroom with over bath shower. Balcony which looked over outdoor pool however it was not a brilliant view. The rooms were very clean and maid serviced eavery day.
The restaurant served hot food every meal which was done on a buffet style but chefs served manin course of your choice. There was always a good selection of food available from salads to hot roasts and pastas, 2 types of Soup, fish every day was also available deserts were mainly cakes and jellies but there was also ice cream and fruit available on request. overall there was plenty of good quality food for every taste including vegetarian menus. Waiters took and delivered drinks to your table. Breakfast consisted of continental or english and ther was plenty of toast and tea.
The hotel itself is clean and tidy and consists of main reception, 2 lifts, dinning area lower floor, it also has pizza cafe on lower floor along with daytime bar. reception area had leather seats to relax and a much larger evening bar where entertainment was on every night. However the entertainment mainly consisted of organist and singers and catered for ball room type dancing which was very very popular with guests and locals.
The hotel also has indoor pool which i thought was slightly colder than expected of a heated pool. there is also jaccuzi and sauna although i must confess i thought this area could do with a slight makeover. The gym was at other side of hotel and i only found it the day before i left but on inspection did seem very reasonable.
Hotel is situated very close to bus terminal (100metres) very cheap to get around island and very good regular busses although busess are from a time warp. Hotel is very close to a range of bars and restaurants / cafes. There is a car museum over the road and well worth a visit.
Example trip we got bus from terminal to ferry caught ferry to Gozzo then bus to Victoria (Capital of Gozzo). it cost us 16 euros for two people for whole return trip, the agent in hotel wanted 108 euros. Gozzo is well worth a visit.
Beach and prom is approx 2-5 mins walk and very accsessible.
There is a couple of casinos within 5 mins walk and entertainment at most bars.
I would definetly recommend this hotel and plan to go back next year. The hotel was full of returners who were staying for a few weeks at a time. Good value
