“Villa Xemxija - Xlendi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We spent a week here in October 2012. The accomodation is clean and comfortable with a decent shower. The pool area is excellent for relaxing or a refreshing dip. Our host Manoel was friendly and was always at hand for any information we needed. We're going back in 2013 to the same accomodation.

Xlendi is a lovely area with lots of reasonably priced restaurants and bars. The bay is good for swimming. Villa Xemxija is only a 2 minute walk from these amenities.

A bus stop is a 30 second walk away and the service is reliable in Gozo.

We were made very welcome both by our host and transfer taxi driver. Appartment very clean and adequately fitted. We enjoyed the balcony area with the individual view. It was lovely to return at the end of each day to have a swim in the pool. We would recommend this accommodation although cooking facilities limited but manageable. Good location with buses every 45mins to Victoria with bus stop 5 mins down the hill. The bus service was very good enabling us to visit most parts of this special island. Good selection of restaurants in Xlend Bay which becomes magical at night time. We enjoyed watching the sunset. There is a local grocery van every day at 2pm except Sundays. Good supermarkets in Victoria but none in Xlendi. Locals very helpful. Beautiful bays to swim in with crystal clear water. The pace is slow with lots to see and find. Weather a bit hotter than expected.

Spent a wonderful 9 days at Villa Xemxija from 25 Sept 2012. The villa was in excellent condition and the pool and jacuzzi were just perfect. Pauline and Manoel are excellent hosts and are on hand to help with enquiries whenever required.The choice of restaurants in Xlendi is very good with several excellent places to eat overlooking the beach and bay. The laid back atmosphere of Xlendi along with our wonderful hosts make this a holiday we will remember. Will we return ? - a definite yes to that!

Room Tip: It was very warm at night and we used the a.c. unit for a few hours each night at a minimal cost.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Villa Xemxija in Xlendi.

Xlendi is a good location to explore the island from, quiet enough for a relaxing time but also has plenty to offer in terms of activities and places to eat. Unfortunately it hasn't got a food market so we went to Victoria to get our groceries - only a short journey by bus, with 2 bus stops really close by the apartment and a very efficient bus service around the island.

The apartment we rented (overlooking the pool with a balcony) was a very good size and very clean.

The kitchen is ok for making light meals only; perhaps it could be slightly improved and have new utensils to replace some old ones, especially since there is plenty of room for more shelves or cupboard - for example a frying pan to replace; one of the electric hot plate to fix; also to have a cafetiere / some kind of pot to make fresh coffee in the morning would have been great. But these are only small details and didn't matter too much as we ate out most evenings anyway.

The villa is lovely with a nice clean pool. Its only draw back would be that is it surrounded and overlooked by tall buildings that are blocking the view. Also there was a new building being erected next to the villa on our side and the noise would wake us up early some mornings in the week.

Our host Manoel was very friendly and always keen to be of help.
I would recommend this accommodation and Gozo as a whole - a beautiful island with extremely friendly people.

We have recently returned from our holiday at Villa Xemxija in Xlendi and once again it has been just perfect. We are regular visitors to the apartments, sometimes visiting two or three times a year and we see it as our “Home from Home”. Manoel and Pauline never fail to cater to our every need and are always willing to help guests with anything at all from advice regarding the accommodation to tourist information or car hire. The rooms are clean and comfortable and have self-catering facilities to allow you to chill out and relax if you don’t fancy eating out. At Villa Xemxija the pool is spotless and inviting and we spent some lovely lazy hours there, as always!
Xlendi itself is a beautiful place with plenty of great places to eat and drink. Watching the sunset go down over the sea at the end of the day is a sight not to be missed! As we were there during the Feast of Santa Marija celebrations we enjoyed immersing ourselves in the Gozo culture and enjoyed greatly all it had to offer.
We have no hesitation in highly recommending Manoel and Pauline’s apartments and are sure you will have a great holiday if you choose to go.

We returned home in August. Once again we had a wonderful relaxing time and did not want to leave. This was our third visit and we stayed again for 3 weeks. As usual our apartment was spotless with everything you need for self catering. You are spoilt for restaurants around the pretty bay of Xlendi each offer excellent food and choices. You must try the Ice Cream parlour by the car park 41 flavours to tempt you.There are so many wonderful places to see all within easy reach of the villa.
As always Pauline and Manoel are wonderful hosts and are always available for any advice you might need.

We cannot wait to return again next year for a relaxing break.

Just back from a 6 night stay in Villa Xlendi,– we could have easily stayed for much longer! The apartments are spotlessly clean, comfortable & provide everything you need for a self catering stay - and incredible value for money. We had a lovely terrace with table, chairs and sun loungers – a view overlooking the pool and the sea in the distance, what more could you want!

We ate out every evening as Xlendi has some wonderful restaurants and we were spoilt for choice. Driving in Gozo is very easy, we had a car for the whole of our trip – however if driving is a concern, there seemed to be a good choice of buses to get you ‘out and about’.

I cannot recommend Villa Xlendi enough – we will be back! Thank you to our hosts to Manoel & Pauline!
