‘Fair budget hotel. Close to the beach with easily accessible parking. Beautiful beach.’
Qawra Palace Hotel in St Paul's Bay, Malta

You’ll enjoy private waterfront access and four-star facilities at the Qawra Palace in St Paul’s Bay, Malta. With daily entertainment, a buffet-style restaurant serving local cuisine, and both an indoor and outdoor pool, there's plenty to keep you busy at the Qawra Palace.

The majority of rooms include a private balcony, some with sea views. A breakdown of the standard facilities looks a little like this: a telephone (extra charge), air-conditioning, a mini cooler, satellite TV, hairdryer, kettle & mugs, tea/coffee making facilities and a safety deposit box (extra charge).

You’ll find that the facilities of the Qawra Palace make staying in the complex an attractive proposition. A big saltwater pool includes a children’s section, and the staff will be only too happy to sort out your first watersports lessons on the shoreline. Or you could always sit under your parasol and enjoy a cocktail from the pool-side bar. If you’re a sports fan you’ll find tennis courts, while the kids can work their energy off with mini golf. Inside the hotel is a top class spa with its own small pool, hot tubs, massage treatments and sauna.

Once the sun sets you can enjoy an on-site nightclub and entertainment from experienced show staff. All-inclusive deals offer buffet or restaurant dining and a bar that is open from 11 am to 11 pm daily, taking the uncertainty out of your holiday budgeting.

Qawra is one of a trio of resorts on the Bay, including St Paul’s Bay itself, Bugibba to the north, and Qawra. St Paul’s Bay is the oldest part of the town on a bay that owes its name to the reported shipwreck of the biblical Apostle offshore. Part of a larger complex, the Qawra Palace has a sea-front location which has Malta’s characteristic rocky shorelines. You will find some sand at nearby Golden Sands where the waters are wonderful for swimming. Diving and sailing are favourite Maltese pursuits, and you’ll find all of these close to the hotel. Qawra is the newest of the St Paul’s Bay resorts, so you won’t have far to go to find some dining, shopping and entertainment aimed at tourists. Bugibba is probably a little livelier, with a cinema and casino among its attractions. The old town of St Paul’s Bay is an attractive contrast, and the stylish towns of Sliema (also home to a major water park) and the capital Valetta are within easy reach.

Rate Answer:

Hi Andrea
There are no sandy beaches in this area, you will need to go to Mellieha or Golden Bay, Armier Bay, and Ghan Tuffieha which would take about 15 minutes by car or about an hour on a local bus. If you have any other questions on Malta just email me as my family are Maltese, sally.dademo@loveholidays.com

I called the confirm and have been advised they have recently changed the rules so you no longer pay the €1 charge. It is a €5 deposit for the entire stay and you can change your towels as frequently as required with the pool boys.
