My husband and I have just returned from a weeks stay at Maria Giovanna guest house and I have to say we rate it 10 out of 10 on every level ! The family are so friendly and can't seem to do enough for you. The room we stayed in was beautiful, so rustic and traditional. Spotlessly clean and the... More

We stayed at the Maria Giovanna for the second half of our honeymoon in Gozo. The hotel is classic, beautiful and the attention to detail is delightful from the period feature furniture to the collections and decorations around the whole hotel. The family were very welcoming and friendly and attentive to every need and question we had. The breakfasts were... More

Beautiful B&B located on the edge of a quiet village. Having stayed at the Kempinski 2 yrs ago I have to say on so many levels Maria Giovanna is better and by the way the former was excellent too. Why? It's more true to Gozo, beautifully rustic, a little quirky, very peacefully with the lovely owners doing every thing they... More

Close to centre, and convenient for dive centres, restaurants and the beech. Spacious well proportioned rooms, with stylish furnishing. Superb breakfasts. Hard to fault as a guesthouse, but obviously no in room TV, roof top swimming pool nor bar, if that is what you are looking for then look elsewhere, but if you are not fussed with chain hotels, then...

We stayed at the Maria Giovanna on Gozo for a brief vacation. As you enter the hotel, you can smell the freshly baked goods that taste as wonderful as they smell. The hotel is run by 2 sisters who are energetic, helpful, and willing to help you make your stay perfect. The hotel is 30 seconds from beach. Beach towels... More

If “Maria Giovanna” is a Maltese gem, then the twins, Anna & Sonia are the treasure trove! The warm genuine hospitality, detailed attention and ever willingness to assist make staying here a truly abundant experience. Nothing is too much for the twins, they know how to spoil guest silly. Sonia made our stay so seamless by helping us put up... More

I agree with most reviewers that this is an excellent place, brimming with character and charm. However, one has to keep in mind that this is only a bed and breakfast place so the prices charged should reflect this. But they don't and it can be quite expenisve. Don't get me wrong: I recommend it but the facilities available do... More

Our first visit to Gozo for 34 years - still a magical place. Maria Giovanna Guest House was a revelation. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the bathrooms spotless and modern and the breakfasts were a kick start to the day. We brought three children (3,9 & 11) who had never been abroad before and they loved it. Sonia and... More

We’ve spent one week in this lovely guesthouse. It was our 3rd trip to Marsalforn, but the first stay with Anna and Sonja and certainly not the last one! From a warm and uncomplicated welcome late in the evening to the very last minutes, everything was to our satisfaction. The room was spacious, wonderfully decorated and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was... More
