I wish I had read more Trip Advisor reports before I chose the Canifor. From day 1 of our fourteen day stay it was clear that this hotel should be classed as a 2 star at best. There is no way this should have 4 star status. The reception staff attitude was amazing.- no smiles, unhelpful and it appeared they worked under duress the whole time. Restaurant staff were inefficient, clearly untrained and in some cases down right rude. On three separate occasions we witnessed stand up confrontations in the restaurant due to the lack of service which was disturbing and embarrassing . The food choice was limited - it is all buffet type meals - and the quality of the food is fitting only for a budget hotel. All inclusive does not include bottled water and the drinks available are of low quality. Wifi has to be purchased and for 4 days it did not work at all. Air conditioning in our bedroom was ineffective and I complained about this and was offered another room which was so small that we could not possibly have stayed in it. When challenged about the air-con the staff finally admitted that it is turned off centrally at night and for the most part of the day. Not to good when the day time temperature was 35-37 degrees and not a lot cooler at night. This all sounds pretty negative but it is all quite true. Positives ?? The place is clean and our room was spacious, adequately furnished and comfortable ... but hot !! There is no car park but street parking was always available - a bonus for Malta. The location is good if you have a car and there is a truly splendid independent restaurant 2 minutes walk away. We have travelled extensively and stayed in all manner of accommodation from 5 star plus hotels to humble bed and breakfasts but the Canifor is quite simply the worst hotel in which we have ever stayed. Again I would emphasise this is a 2 star hotel at best ... and I have stayed in far better 2 star hotels than this one !! Collapse

Just a heads up to people potentially booking this and thinking its a "proper" 4 star hotel. The facilities Pools, small Jacuzzis, etc etc are, nothing startling but ok. The showers are out of service on the sun deck and people cant shower before getting into the Jacuzzi. The rooms are very basic and the beds are very firm. There is NO tea and coffee making facilities provided in your room (you need to hire and you are charged daily. There is no remote control for the tiny TV in your room and you need to pay a deposit for one. The ceiling fan and Air con unit in our room was poor and noisy. Most of the staff are pleasant but there is at least 5-6 members of staff who are rude and obnoxious to residents. The food is ok but it does NOT provide a 4 star hotels food menu. The food is sloppily prepared and overcooked and a distinct lack of variety. I am sure some will have eaten it but there is a difference between enjoying your food and just eating due to hunger. Even though we had paid for food we ate out 4 times. To summarise: If you are omnivorous, don't care about variety & quality of food and just want a place to sleep it would be OK but expect at the best a 3 star hotel. Collapse

It is not always, if you book room at this hotel, you will stay in this hotel, also. So, they have sister hotel on the other part in town, about 2 km away and it is possible to say : Well, we are overbooked, you will stay in another hotel. And the secon, it is also possible to put you on departements about 50m away from hotel. But, this is not the same, cleanless and some things are much better in hotel , so, it is not possible to give this hotel 5 stars. Collapse
