I was in Gozo to celebrate a wedding and had asked the family of the groom to find me a place to stay, hence I was entirely in their hands! I had doubts about where I was going, and even went so far as to write in advance to check on some details, but I need not have worried. From... More

First rate guest house,excellent as for the beautiful Maltese furnitured bedroom, as for the cheerful welcome of the two sisters who own the house. Excellent home made breakfast ,we would recommend that address ,very well situated in the centre , next to the beach and main restaurant and yet very quiet place. The owners pay attention to everything to satisfy... More

Spent 2 nights which were among the most terrible ever due to the street noise, we could hear also the people speaking in the street even with the windows closed!. Breakfast was though very tasty, the warm dishes and the cookies were excellent, though hard to eat when you wake up badly after a poor night's sleep.

Dear Buretika, Firstly I would like to thank you for taking time in writing your review. We are so sorry that your two nights spent at our place were your most terrible ones due to street noise. However street noise is part of the pros and cons of staying in the center. For this obviously we do not have any... More

I stayed for 10 days in July as part of a 2 week diving holiday. Charmingly decorated room, wonderful hosts and exceptional breakfasts! Thanks for all the cake! The guesthouse is one street back from the sea and is very well located for the dive schools and restaurants.

The stay was superb - the location is excellent, the rooms are quite large and the place is lovely and clean. The owners simply went out of their way to welcome us and make sure our stay is great. They even offered Soya / Almond milk which really was appreciated considering that a member of my family is dairy intolerant... More

I am not normally a guest house traveller but after reading the review I decided to give the Maria Giovanna a try. I was not disapointed!! The guest house is located very close to the beach and the main promanade although is very quiet. The house itself is very clean and bigger than I expected and very spacious. The family... More

Just spent a weekend at this gem of a place. Such a discovery bang in the middle of Marsalforn. Quaint, old Maltese house refurbished with all modern amenities. Clean, good mattress, great powerful shower, super breakfast and a welcoming smell of home baking every afternoon. All served with the friendly and helpful attitude of the owners. Thank you for your... More

I had the pleasure of staying here for 7 nights. This is a family business managed by sisters Anna & Sonia. They & their father Joe are very friendly and welcoming. The guesthouse is immaculate and spotlessly clean. The bedrooms are charming (brass bed, typical gozitan floor tiles) & comfortable. The breakfast offers a wide range of options. Fresh fruits...

This house has been run by the same family for decades and it was really nice to see the sisters who run it helped by younger and more senior family members. We were in a partial sea view room which was nice and spacious with very high ceilings, and traditional furniture but with strong wifi and a new air con... More

This really looks like a home away from home and the welcome was pleasant enough. The village of Marsalforn is a real find - lovely bay for swimming and so many great waterfront restaurants to choose from. There are good walking tracks to help you explore. The guest house is quaint but our room was very small (difficult to store... More
