Whichever way you look at the star ratings it's not worthy of its current rating. Compared with local same star ratings it comes no where near. Yes it may be reasonable price wise but don't fall into that trap. pay a little bit more and get a decent hotel. There are plenty around far, far better by miles and well staffed. I begrudge paying for bad food, rude staff and bad facilities, no matter how much is paid when it's advertised as 4 star that's what you should get. This hotel falls short in every aspect.

I try to be fair in all my opinions and the canifor is defo not 4 star id give it 2 star plus. for the price people pay its not too bad. not quite as bad as people make out but could do with a total makeover of staff as some with the greatest respect are a tad too old or is that ageism? I didn't have any major issues when I stayed there, but will not be returning as bugibba,s not my cup of tea really

Definitely not 4* but if you get a good price, as we did in May, then just about value for money. Do not go Full Board, food poor. Rooms ok though. Good base to explore from.

I wrote to the Prime Minister of Malta and the Tourist Minister and my story was published in The Times of Malta in 2016. We were very ill and so were many other guests with bad chesty coughs and head aches. We left 11 days early. We never had a reply form either of the Ministers. I sent the list of the complaints we gave the manager of the Canifor, including how dirty the air vents were in the room. I am a retired building surveyor and specialised in building technology. I advised them that in my view due to so many guests that had a bad cough and were ill in bed or sitting in the lobby with headaches, there should be an inspection by Health and Safety and the results should be published. I never got a reply. I suggested that the star rating is issued by an inspector that has a personal interest in this dreadful Hotel.

We are not surprised in seeing bad reviews still since the bad publicity it gained in The Times of Malta in 2016. It is also not surprising that the promised report has still not been made public. If I was given the job of rating the Tourist Minister I would give him a "star minus and could NOT do better"
