Top guesthouse, very clean and really nice owner. Location is really great, especially when having breakfast with a nice view over the harbor from the rooftop terrace. Also don't forget to ssk for the trip to Peters pool. The owner takes you there with the car and takes you back, otherwise a long hike.

Thanks for taking time to give us a review, and a good one too! Appreciated! Nice plug for the St Peter's Pool trip - we have not had one person who failed to like going there. For those wondering what it is, Google 'St Peter's Pool - Marsaskala' and check out what must be the best swimming and diving hole... More

This was our second stay at Akwador and we will definitely be going back. Guest house was very clean, fresh towels every day and a spruce up round your room. Larissa and Neil are very friendly and accommodating, nothing is too much trouble for them

We had a great stay at this Guest House. The owners of this house are excellent people, they are going to do everything possible to make your stay at Malta the best. Tip: They have a great trip to St. Peter`s Pool, in a convenient price and all the comfort for you. Do it.
