Located within 5-10 minutes walk of the beautiful Church of St John The Baptist in Xewkija, and on the main road with easy access by bus to Victoria (Rabat) and the ferry from Gozo to Malta. We loved staying in Gozo: quiet, friendly people, very little of the touristy feel of places like Bugibba. Maria treated us like family and... More

My friends and me have stayed here for two nights. We were lucky enough that we got a family room, very spacious and felt like a home. Great staff, helpful and friendly, they even picked us up at the ferry! We had a nice breakfast with fresh eggs every day. The hotel is located close to Victoria and you can... More

Our room had a beautiful view, was very spacious and it was very clean. Breakfast was nice too and the couple who manage the hotel are very nice and friendly. Overall the hotel could do with a little bit of maintenance - nothing broke in our room however it definitely needs some renovations (even when keeping in mind that this... More

The generous breakfast with some easy listening on background in the wannabe boat decoration make it up for the rough wake up due to the thin wall and the glass door and some families trying to get together to go to the beach. The pool is clean and the rooms are large. Recommended for who wakes up early. 30 min... More

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
