Thanks Neil & Larisa for a very good stay at 'your place' It is quite unique to find a beautiful location and fabulous hosts. The welcome on arrival was better than 5 star, room was nice, breakfast was good (Liz like your special porridge Neil). A big plus point is the internet which is miles better than the rubbish 5...

First of all we got a very warm welcome and a helping hand with our luggage. Than an introduction of the room facilities and the upper floor were breakfast is served. In the evening either Larisa or Neil made a restaurant reservation for us. Neil also helped us to get tickets for the Hypogeneum which were not easy to get.... More

Thank you again for a great and rather detailed review. We are often asked how we get good reviews and to be honest it is down to three things.....1) We have great location and views. 2) We have a policy of cleanliness, we recently got inspected and received a Grade A (the highest award) from the Health and Hygiene Inspectorate...

What a very nice and relaxed place to stay. Larisa and Neill are the perfect hosts. Everything has been very well taken care of. The cleanliness, breakfast, hospitality, comfort: not to mention the view! Thanks again (we'll tell all our friends whenever they want to visit Malta) Marianne & Peter Harmsen Holland.

My wife and I stayed for a couple of nights and wished that we had stayed longer. Accommodation was good, the hosts were very welcoming and helpful and we certainly would recommend it to others without hesitation.

A big thank you to Neil & Larisa for their attentive hospitality at Akwador. Your customer service was excellent and really appreciated Neil facilitating a trip to St Peter's Pool, providing chairs, sun umbrella and water noodle! Futhermore, Neil willingly shared his personal knowledge in relation to places of interest to visit and also where to obtain delicious food locally.... More

We found the perfect spot! Marsascala, in my opinion, is the most picturesque place in all of Malta, and the Akwador Guest House has the finest views of this picture postcard bay. Neil and Larisa are wonderful hosts, and if anything, the guest house is underpriced. Even before we came, they were very quick to respond to email, and answer... More

Dear Cathy & Ian, Thank you so much for your lovely review. We discussed the 'underpriced' bit when you were here and we are still feeling our way in terms of offering good value. Maybe we could charge more, but there are little areas we personally want to improve on and until we have done so, we don't feel justified... More

Before coming, we read several excellent reviews on different websites about Akwador but we didn't actually expect anything special as the fare was pretty affordable. When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by Neil and Larisa. They even let us check in one hour before the scheduled time. The room and the common areas were clean and tidy. There is... More

Stayed here in August 2014. The guest house is a short walk from the bars and restaurants along the promenade. We were in room 23 which is the nearest one to the breakfast area, but weren't woken by other guests using the kitchen facilities. The maids were very thorough and both our room and the kitchen area were spotless. The... More
