Fifth stay at the Calypso. The hotel is still spotlessly clean, the rooms are comfortable even the hard beds. The view from the Seaview rooms are still gorgeous. The food is okay, the staff are lovely, the swimming pool is really a plunge pool and the hotel still needs some TLC. On the down side the WIFI wasnt working in... More

Paid for a bay view room and got a room on the back side of the hotel overlooking an old shabby building. Not only were we not given the room we paid for but we were told that it is not their problem that they cannot offer such a room since we booked through one of their agents and not... More

From the moment we found out that the flat we had rented for our 2 week stay in Marsalforn, turned out to be completely unlivable, the Hotel Calypso and its gracious staff came to the rescue! Finding a place to stay for two weeks at a moment's notice is never an easy thing, however we fortunate enough to find accommodations... More

Booked the hotel through travel Republic but I will not recommend the hotel. 1. On arrival the Spanish receptionist was rude and left us waiting for our room over 45 minutes only when I got frustrated about the situation were we offered a drink, very I don't care it shows she did not know anything about Maltese hospitality. Food okish... More

The hotel is beside the sea and reasonably new, breakfast has a good selection of fruit cheeses, continental and English. The rooms are well designed although small with the bathroom even smaller Overall the hotel is of a good standard however the Internet only worked in the lobby. The reception were aware of the problems but the 3 days we... More

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
