Took the family for a pre Christmas treat. The rooms were fine and have been refurbished . Rooms are cleaned daily by cheerful & helpful staff. Just wish the indoor pool was kept open a little later in the evening, 6.00 closure is a little early . Stayed here a couple of years ago with the family & will use...

We arrived at the Canifor Hotel, which is the sister hotel to the Cardor apartments at dinner time. 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...

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...

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

We found it eventually and it only got worse dead insects all over the walls and floors mold in the frige and also in the bathroom, bedding was stained and looked...

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)...

This apartment was cheaper than the campsite so not expecting much. Pool and communal areas were tolerable. The room looked promising by its front door. BUT it had no external windows had decrepit furniture and the most dreadfully strong smell of mould and stale urine. The only bedroom window opened into a service duct with leaky and fetid plumbing, the...

The first night we arrived we noticed the squashed remains of a cockroach on the wall; it was still there when we left a week later! The rooms were grubby and looked uncared for, with the exception of the barman in the entertainment bar and some of the dining room staff, most of the other staff were very grumpy. Malta...

First of all, we arrived at the apartments to discover we had been placed in a pigeon hole, one may call it, with no balcony or view unless you count the interior of the hotel as a view. As it was 2 in the morning we waited until the morning to complain to which they said they were overbooked and...

for the cost of this apartment you get everything you need and more. regular linen and towel changes and air conditioning ( sometimes extra cost ) for a low cost holiday excellent. in the middle of the resort, near the bus station and the rocky beach for bathing. also has good pools shared with the Canifor hotel
