The location of the Calypso really couldn't be better - literally a few steps from the beach and harbour and right on the promenade with all the restaurants, bars and cafes of Marsalforn right on the doorstep. My inland room was better than I'd expected - I actually had quite a good view of the bay from my balcony. Although... More

I found breakfast not as good as I remembered it, there was less choice. Booking also wasn't as easy as it used to be. The views on the other hand were still as great as ever. Sunset over the other side of Marsalforn Bay. Drinking coffee overlooking the harbour...Yes, I am glad that I went to Calypso again.

Near the sea and the beach (about 50 meters). Nice room and view from the balcony. Good breakfast with a lot to choose from, staff at breakfast were effective and removed used plates often. Non existing internet connection in the room, Wi-Fi network name shows up but most of the time it was not possible to connect, when able to... More

Staff very friendly, location perfect... breakfast average.. don't be fooled by the rooftop swimming pool, its actually a kiddies paddling pool.. The rooftop Bar lacks staff.. if you need a drink go elsewhere.. But overall, a great place in a great location

...and probably is. A family of four enjoyed four nights - and days - at this hotel at Marsalforn. The hotel is centrally located, has a very nice, white and open breakfast room, and a lovely garden terrace with a spectacular view. Room was clean, but a bit old fashioned. The wi-fi was very slow in the room, but ok... More

My wife and I have been to the Claypso hotel several times over the years. This is a VERY friendly hotel situated on the end of the bay promendage in Marsalforn. It is an old hotel, and some of it may need a little updating, but the room we usually have (509) is very nice and large. The hotel have... More

The manager and staff are all very friendly and extremely helpful. Great food and outstanding new chef added to the team. The views from the roof are amazing and the rooftop dining in the summer is complemented by high standard waiter service and fantastic menus. The rooms are cleaned to a high standard by very friendly and hard working cleaning... More

We have been to this lovely hotel for the weekend. I asked for a high chair in our room and it was there in minutes. The staff is nice. Food is delicious especially the Saturday bbq buffet. Situated in the heart of marsalforn.

We were recommended to go there by friends who went last year and can see why. We were up on the 5th floor with a bay view and the little harbour which we felt was better than the sea view as there was more going on.The hotel, rooms, food and staff were excellent(if you have ever seen the film"Hugo" there...
