Third room was OK but tired and taps stiff and don't expect the Air Con unit to work. On the last night our neighbours unit... More

The young girl at reception told us that there was a problem with our apartment and as all their rooms were taken she would phone around to see if another hotel could take us. I asked if it would be a one... More

Just home after spending 2 weeks in this hell hole. Please don't waste your money. If you must go to Malta, find somewhere else to stay other than the Cardor or Canifor. The pool area is in constant shade from 2.30pm. The pool is tiny. The first room they put us in was a replica of a prison cell. No... More

We wanted a clean, cheap and quiet apartment to sleep at night, with clean bathroom and a clean kitchen for a cuppa. That's what we got. Staff were polite and helpful. We had a great holiday, so all in all job done

Ok before we went on holiday I did the one thing that you should never do ... I read the reviews on the place we were staying. They weren't very good to say the least and, so obviously it made me a little anxious about what to expect. We had a very late flight out (got to hotel at 3am)... More
