We loved our week long stay here with a wonderful accomodating and kind family. The guesthouse is very relaxed and we are still missing the amazing cakes for breakfast. The entire family wear a lovely warm smile. The bedroom was spacious and very comfortable. Excellent shower facilities too. Gozo is a beautiful little sanctuary. Enjoy enjoy enjoy!

This place came highly recommended and they weren't wrong. Family were lovely decent people who treated guests like they were family. Amazing cleanliness... the bathroom in room 3 looks like something out of a style magazine! Quiet and perfect location Anna and Sonia are always good for a chat and advice. Special mention for the breakfast buffet which was 5... More

We highly recommend this Guesthouse for location and the friendliness of the staff. Our room was really pretty with a four poster bed, nice little balcony and dressing table. The bathroom looked recently refurbished and was very clean. One of the highlights was the breakfast - with homemade deserts! It's not a 5-star hotel but I can't imagine a nicer... More

I have just come back from a visit to Malta/Gozo. The Maria Giovanna guest house was the best accommodation I experienced in my nine day trip and the same goes for the excellent breakfast. I wished I could have stayed longer. Everthing is in perfect taste and to a high standard. As a guest house owner myself, I appreciated how... More

After being pampered for 14 days it has been difficult to leave this cozy place. Absolutely unobtrusively there is always someone to help you along. The Hotel is close to the action. Everything you need is only a few steps away. The rooms are very nice and clean. So we found a perfect place for our holidays. We enjoyed every... More

I stayed at Maria Giovanna Guest house in September this year with a friend. It was one of the best parts of the trip. The warmth and hospitality of the owners really blew us away, we felt like we were part of the family! The rooms were neat and clean and it was sweetly decorated with vintage furniture pieces. The...

What a lovely place to stay! This family run guest house was just perfect for our short late summer getaway. The whole family were so helpful, pleasant and generous, we felt at home on arrival - having been collected from the ferry port at 5.00 a.m. by the father! They couldn't do enough for us, and the other guests. If... More

There is nothing more to add to the other reviews that preceeded our visit, they were all true. The people and place are charming and we had a wonderfull week. Nothing was too much trouble from the time we arrived to unfortunatley the time we had to leave.

We stayed in Maria Giovanni's last week in one of the double rooms on the newly extended upper floors. The room was lovely- centre piece was a painted old fashioned iron bed. The ensuite was snug, but immaculate;the room was cleaned every day. But what really made this place special was the way the place is run. The family are... More

I have been here for 6 nights. The house is simply charming. The rooms are beautiful, clean, spacious and romantic (specially the ones for couples). The service from the family who manages the house is simply excellent. The breakfast is great, and from what I heard from other hosts, the dinner was excellent (the grandmather cooks everything with love). It... More
