Paradise Bay Resort MaltaParadise Bay Resort Hotel in Marfa

During my last visit to Malta, I did a huge amount of research on the hotels in Malta. Partly for the Beach holiday guide and partly because like most people I was looking for the best hotel at the cheapest price!

I eventually settled on the Paradise Bay resort hotel in Marfa mainly because the company that I had booked my scuba diving with, Paradise Diving in Malta had their offices right next to the hotel, making it very easy for me to get up in the morning, put on my wetsuit and go diving! But having said that I also got a very good deal from them, their food was good and my room was adequate.

The Paradise Bay hotel is Located in Cirkewwa near Marfa, right on the northern tip of Malta, this has both advantages and disadvantages. On the plus side, it means that caching a ferry to Gozo is extremely simple, you only need to take a 3 minute walk from the hotel to the ferry offices and the crossing. On the negative side, it is a little remote for things like shopping but there is a nice beach called Paradise Bay nearby. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel, which I used all the time, or you could hire a car, Malta is a small island and by car you are never really far from anywhere.

Bugibba Hotels Malta

Tip IconTip >>
Check the Hotel Locations on the Map of Malta >>

Bugibba sits out on the Qawra peninsular between St Pauls Bay and Salina Bay and is a popular tourist location in Malta. There are a wide selection of hotels in Bugibba as well as some great restaurants, promenade and shops. Bugibba Hotels include the popular Canifor Hotel, The Bugibba Holiday Complex and the Topaz Hotel.

Canifor Hotel Malta (Qawra / Bugibba)

Canifor Hotel MaltaFor me, one of the best value for money hotels in Malta, the Canifor Hotel is ideal for families and couples who are looking for a great base to explore from. If you are looking for a cheap hotel in Malta that is of a decent standard, then this is the hotel for you. If however you are looking for the ultimate in luxury, you need to pay a little more and stay somewhere else. Remember you often only get what you pay for in life! Having said that the Canifor is cheap, clean and cheerful, has it's own restaurant, bar and live entertainment 5 times a week, as well as swimming pools, a Jacuzzi, hairdressers and gym. The Canifor hotel is located in Qawra right near the beach and only a few minutes away from the colourful promenade which has a variety of bars, restaurants and shops. Whilst the hotel is not right on the beach, it does have a stunning view of the coastline from the panoramic pool terrace.

Bugibba Holiday Complex Malta

Bugibba Holiday ComplexThe three star Bugibba Holiday Complex in Malta was opened in 1982, and as a result does look a little outdated from the outside. The hotel is centrally located in popular area of Bugibba, less than five minutes walk away from the seafront and the town center on the north-western tip of Malta.

The Hotel has bright air-conditioned guestrooms that open onto balconies, there are three swimming pools, a restaurant serving Mediterranean cuisine and often live entertainment in the cocktail bar.

The Beach Holiday Guide Opinion
To be honest, the hotel has had mixed reviews and for my money you could probably find a better hotel in Bugibba or elsewhere in Malta for the same cost.

Topaz Hotel Bugibba Malta

Topaz Hotel in Bugibba MaltaThe attractive four star Topaz Hotel is located in the heart of the very popular tourist and seaside town of Bugibba. The hotel is less than a ten minute walk from the sea front promenade.

The Hotel has bright air-conditioned guestrooms that open onto balconies, there is a lovely fish shaped swimming pool as well as a heated pool that is used in the winter, a restaurant serving Mediterranean cuisine and often live entertainment in the cocktail bar. All rooms have bathroom/shower WC satellite TV, telephone, air conditioning, hairdryer and safety deposit box (at a charge) and a fridge (on request and at a charge).

The Beach Holiday Guide Opinion
When I visited the Topaz Hotel my overall experience was good. I found all the staff helpful, the food from the restaurant was great and my room was clean and overlooked the pool. I would recommend the Topaz as a reasonably priced comfortable hotel.

Luxury Hotels in Malta

If you are looking for a quality 5 star hotel in Malta, there are a few options available:

Radisson SAS Golden Sands Resort & Spa

Radisson SAS Golden Sands ResortThe Radisson Resort is the most exclusive five star resort in Malta. It has a fantastic location on the edge of a cliff which overlooks what is for me the best sandy beach in Malta, Golden Bay Beach. From the hotel, you have breathtaking sea and country views.

The Radisson hotel is only a short drive to St Paul's Bay and the popular town of Bugibba and a ten minute drive northwards to the town of Cirkewwa and the ferryboat that will take you to the island of Gozo. The Hotel is about 15 miles from Malta International Airport. The hotel has a tennis court, fitness center, spa, swimming pool as well as a car rental desk.

The Beach Holiday Guide Opinion
For me, easily the best hotel in Malta, located right on the best beach in a wonderful location that includes great places to walking both along the beach and inland. There is also the Golden Bay Horse Riding school right near the hotel offering horse riding as well as a watersports and diving center on the beach. If you need there is a bus stop in the car park of the hotel. You can book this hotel either a part of a package holiday or on itself through British Airways Holidays or from
