Visitors will appreciate the intimate and homely experience in this Guesthouse, located in a central location in Gozo. Spacious rooms, a first class breakfast service, a lavish lunch buffet option (including cold meats, plus local wine or water) for an unbelievable 10 euros. Warning: the Xewkija parish church bells peal every 15 minutes - so: get your ear plugs to... More

Dear Godfrey, It was nice having you with us and good to know that you enjoyed your stay and our feast. Unfortunately last week was the festa of the village and so the parish priest wanted to boast of his church bells too:-) Many thanks for your nice comments which we greatly appreciate and look forward to seeing you again...

Frankie and Maria and the ladies were exceptional hosts. breakfast was always good and the location was close to the Ferry, Victoria and the Citadel. This is not the Hilton but you are looking for good value and friendly accommodation, this is the place to go.

Returning to the Mariblu after 13 years - far too long - we found it as friendly and welcoming as ever. The owners arranged transport from Malta airport and met us off the island's ferry. It's a great base for exploring Gozo, well away from the bright lights of the resorts but close to the bus route between the harbour... More

Ok so we paid 85 euro for a triple room, and our room was in desperate need of some updates. The TV had zero actual channels to watch and we exhaustively looked to see if there was anything. The room did not have any wifi networks. The beds were rather uncomfortable and the worst thing was the blistering cold. I... More

I cannot understand how this client did not manage to use neither the Led TV nor the Aircondition/heating nor the Wifi, which we have in each room. We gave them the two controls, one for the TV and one for the Aircondition/heating. I also wonder why they did not contact the reception for help, if they could not know how... More

The place is on the way to Gozo's capital Rabat and only a 5 minute drive from the Gozo Channel ferry. You can ask what you prefer for breakfast and the staff will do... More

thanks for your review with which I agree as this room is the last one to be upgraded. Infact we were supposed to do this room before summer but since we have been very busy since Carnival, we did not have the time to do it up according to plans. Since it is going to have a complete new shower... More

My husband and myself visited this hotel last weekend and we really had a wonderful time. The management and staff were very helpful and we almost felt treated us as part of their family! The breakfast was very delicious and abundant. I really recommend this hotel. Thanks Maria & franki & all the staff.
