First of all I was delighted to choose Marsaskala. is very charming city with a charming bay. Not crowd like Silema or St Julian, with very nice near the sea restaurants covering all the tastes. Now about Akwador, nice place indeed. managers: Niel and Larisa are totally devoted to their guest spending a lot of time making each one to... More

We sell ourselves on the view from our terrace and the cleanliness of our rooms and communal areas and are pleased you were happy with our standards.

The Akwador really is exceptional! Larisa and Neil are the consummate hosts…right from my arrival they both greeted me with genuine hospitality and warmth. The guesthouse is spotless, the beds comfortable, the rooms adequately furnished. The view from the top floor breakfast room amazing! As there is no TV in the rooms, either bring a book or borrow one from... More

We have recently returned from spending 4 nights at the Akwador Guest House. Neil and Larisa made sure that we were truly comfortable during the stay - nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were excellent - continental style including fabulous local bread which tasted divine. Lovely view over the harbour from the breakfast room with a terrace on which... More

Thanks Neil & Larisa for a very good stay at 'your place' It is quite unique to find a beautiful location and fabulous hosts.

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.

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
