First of all I feel I must counter some comments on here saying that this isn't a four star hotel and its "tired" or in need of modernisation. This is a BUDGET four star Hotel ( The stars are awarded on the amenities available at the hotel. IE indoor and outdoor pools , gym, etc etc ).... Not on the food or the age of the fixtures and fittings. If you want a "Better four star Hotel the go to the Qawra Palace or the Seashells Resort just down the road, but you will pay two or three times as much. THE GOOD........The Hotel is in an Ideal location, being just five minutes walk to the bus station and the front. Our room was really clean, and the towels and bedding were changed regularly. Surprisingly the room was quite modern ( not what has been said on here by quite a few people ), with air conditioning and a ceiling fan. Also had a Safe, Fridge, hairdryer and a small TV. The food was mainly good for a budget Hotel. ..... THE BAD ......We felt like OLIVER at mealtimes. Let me explain.... When we first arrived we were allowed to serve ourselves at the "self service" food stations , but that was soon changed to the kitchen staff serving very small portions to us, so we were made to feel like Oliver asking for MORE, and when we did we were given very disapproving looks by the staff. THIS IS REALLY PENNY PINCHING IN THE EXTREME... If you have a big appetite then don't go here, unless you want to feel humiliated and "small ". We certainly wont be going back here until this policy is removed..... The Evening entertainment was TERRIBLE. We had been warned on here about the locals taking over the venue. The Entertainment was usually a man and an organ, playing the same music every night for the Locals to Linedance or Partner Dance to. PLEASE, PLEASE can there be some VARIETY here please.....Quite a lot of the staff need some customer service training, we hardly ever had a smile off them or a Thank You , or something like "you are welcome" when we said Thank You. Not even a Hello or Good Morning etc when we approached them .......... THE UGLY... Not much really, just the Building Sites around the Hotel Collapse

Hotel wasn't to bad . Internet was totally rubbish. Ideal location for buses and shops sea front . Food not so good . Breakfast was repetitive and toast rock hard . Evening meal some day ok others not good we eaten out 4 days out of 11 days stay . Staff in restaurant very helpful and friendly . Reception s ladies was very arrogant and unsocial . Argued with my friend cause internet wouldn't work in room then said all 3 of us must have crap phones . Cheeky . We did get money back after arguing with her . On the plus side our room was really nice , very tiny bathroom though . Not sure if I would stay again . The bed very uncomfortable . We didn't sleep much at night as bed not good Collapse

When we arrived we had to pay local Tax, not a problem but we were charged 7 euros each when it should have been 7 for both of us, so beware. No safe key available, were told that maintenance man had it, only to be told the following day that it was lost. Got Wifi for the wife to keep in touch with the kids, this didn't work and after three days she gave up and the hotel reception gave us our money back, but in local bars it was available for nothing and it worked. They have tried to update all inclusive by now giving you a wrist band and a card, the card didn't work and all it did was frustrate the staff, who inform me that I was actually booked into three rooms. Now on to the room small sparse and left a lot to be desired, cleaners were helpful until they were given a tip then forget it. Food was ok but not up to the last time we were there, things on menu but not at the servery. Hotel seemed to cater more for the locals, building site next door so before booking make sure that it doesn't affect your holiday sunshine as it is right in front of the sun deck and swimming pool. Overall a bit disappointing, and feel that that may have been are last trip to the Canifor after having such a good time over the years, shame. Collapse

If this is a 4* hotel then I'm an alien. We have just returned from a 10 day stay half board. We arrived after midnight and the guy on reception was obviously there to 'just do a job'. No welcome greeting. No offer of food even though this had been paid for. One customer arriving with us asked for a drink and was told in an abrupt manner 'the bar is closed'. My bed was very uncomfortable (husband said his was ok). Room not cleaned properly in my opinion. Lots of dust on the rugs. Bath not cleaned properly as a long black hair was in one corner away from the shower when we arrived and was still there when we left, As we only had showers I deliberately left it there as a test!! Restaurant was not at all appealing. Very cramped, difficult to get around the tables and other people. Only a couple of the staff ever smiled. Most of them seemed not to want to be there. Had a bored look on their faces the whole time.They did not keep abreast of what cups, glasses, juices were running out so needed replacing. Breakfast was absolutely fine. Plenty of choice - sign always saying Strawberrry yoghurt but in the time we were there it was Raspberry which amused me. I guess that it was pink so had to be Strawberry!! Only down side was Tea from the drinks machine was never hot, just luke-warm. Entertainment in the evening was ok-ish. When we checked out we were not asked if we had enjoyed our stay. Not even a 'goodbye and thankyou for staying with us'. Quite a lot of people were checking out around the 8am time and the girl didn't seem to know what she was doing or how to refund deposits etc. She asked me to come back when someone else who handled monies was there. I could have just walked away without checking out as our transport arrived soon afterwards. Nightmare!! I will definitely NOT recommend this hotel to anyone and will definitely NOT stay there again, Collapse

I have visited the hotel on numerous occasions, maybe not again though. Noisy children earlier in the week and youths later in the week. Staff were made aware but did not deal with it. The manager of the hotel restaurant was moody sometimes smiling and saying hello and other times ignoring us. In 7 days we were only offered drinks twice in the restaurant. When checking out the duty manager was unfriendly continuing a call whilst taking my keys and cards and not asking me if i enjoyed my stay. will be looking for another hotel in future. Collapse
