“Definitely worth staying there.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

I was fed up with my stay on Malta, so took the boat to Gozo, and then a taxi to the hotel (booked in advance). My room was very large and had everything you could want. There was a gym (which needs a little bit of upgrading), and a warm swimming pool and spa. The food in the restaurant was OK, and the service was fine. Walks from the hotel were interesting, and the nearby village was worth spending time in. Recommended for a weekend (or longer if you can). While there, a BBC unit was staying, so it must be good!

Room Tip: The rooms outside of the main hotel are best - and you can hear the birds singing.

We stayed at the Ta'Cenc for two relaxing weeks in early April and felt very blessed. The staff are very friendly and helpful, there are two lovely resident cats, and the facilities, food and amenities are all excellent. Victor Borges, the hotel owner, came round to make sure the guests were enjoying their stay. We enjoyed swimming in the heated (30%) outdoor pool in the early evening, and very much enjoyed our evening meals. In warmer weather, you can dine next to a 300 year old carob tree! The hotel is on a beautiful cliff top very close to the sea - and is great for walkers. Victoria is only 10 minutes away and the hotel have three times daily shuttle services. There was a free music festival in Gozo and Malta while we were there that we took advantage off. A beautiful hotel and great island to explore. We will be back!

Superb hotel with stone villas (trulllos), three swimming pools (one heated indoor / outdoor), spa, lucious food with great service. Walk by the sea on stony paths through prehistoric stone ruins. Convenient to the rest of historic Gozo. We never wanted to leave, and will return. Our stay was incredible.

Stayed with my wife and 10month old daughter, half board.

If you are looking for a quiet retreat set away from the hustle and bussle, then this is an ideal choice.

Set in a very remote area of Gozo this is a blissful retreat. The hotel in general is very good. All the facilities you expect with 5 stars. 2 large pools with kiddy pools attached and a heated spa pool (indoor - outdoor).

The whole hotel is a sprawling set of rooms and has an 'set in the country' feel. Room was clean but some fixtures and fittings are dated or in need of a refresh.

Bar and restaurant were very good - half board menu was superb. I chose an a la carte item and had a little grumble at an undercooked lamb saddle but my wife's steak was perfect.

Staff were warm and friendly. I would return again.

I have come to the Ta Cenc this year since 2010 for the 4th time with a spiritual seminar group; I came by myself and with friends about 4 times before already. This time the group was here from May 1st to May 8th, while some came earlier and others stayed longer. Every single person in our group - Germans, Austrians, Swiss - was overwhelmed by the stunning setting, the privacy and cosiness of the bungalow style separate entry rooms ( or rather "apartments" ), the charme of all people in service her, the variety of amenities ( spa, pools, sitting areas ), the wide breakfast selection ( british, continental and maltese ), the quality of food. I have already planned one or two more seminars in 2014. Thank you Rose, Chalue, Neerah, Chris, David, Ferdinand, Michael and all others, and especially of course Victor Borg. One more notable mention: Gozo Garage, affiliated with the Ta Cenc resort, does a truly outstanding job in arranging for transfers from and to Luqa airport, bus excursions on Gozo and to Malta. Thank you Jamie and colleagues!

The charming hotel has a superb location, set in beautiful gardens with stunning views. The layout seems quirky but has been carefully planned to create a relaxing ambience. Bold landscapes by a local artist portray the island.
It’s run by experienced staff and on arrival we immediately felt welcome, and found everyone knowlegeable,friendly and helpful throughout our stay.
The bedrooms are spacious and comfortably furnished, with their own terrace.There are two outdoor pools, a secluded heated pool within the spa, and a choice of cosy sitting rooms.
We loved the generous buffet breakfasts, served in the courtyard , which include freshly squeezed juices, local cheeses, meats, fish, breads and cakes.
All in all a wonderful place to relax.

We saw reviews about this hotel after we booked so we complained and asked for a better room. They said they will give us the best room available.

The room was quite spacious and very well lit. However the bathroom needs refurbishing. There was a ceiling fan attached which does not even work. The fridge was very old as well. Bed was quute comfortable overall. There was a soffit ceiling in corridor which was stained and had holes in it.

The outside pools especially the family pool had broken tiles and was dirty

We were disappointed with the Spa as children were only allowed from 9-12, I understand this is because of the noise as this is a relaxing environment, however during the time we visited there wasnt anyone. They should do this only in peak periods when the hotel is busy.

Spa pool is very nice, it is indoor and outdoor at the same time. The outdoor part is beautiful and very well maintained.

Restaurant was quite nice and the food was very good. Staff very friendly and polite.

Overall a beautiful hotel however if it needs refurbishing as its not a 5 star for sure!
