“gbonello - You'll come back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

I have. Stayed there a number of times, winter and summer, and was never disappointed. Good, really helpful service, spotless rooms and gorgeous sea views from the front rooms, a restaurant beyond expectations from a smallish outfit - not just appetizing, but seriously delicious. Jason and Sharon who run it were born hospitality professionals

Room Tip: Try to book a room with a sea-view. Costs a bit more, but well worth it.

Went there round a year ago with my other half for a night. The staff were very friendly and the room and bathroom were very clean. When I asked the staff for directions to a particular place they gladly helped me. When they saw me coming back they even asked me if I managed to find the place I was looking for. The breakfast was continental and there was a good choice of items that were delicious. It is also important to note that price-wise, the hotel is very cheap when considering the room and service. Definitely worth considering when looking for a hotel in Gozo.

A very clean, sweet small hotel! Staff are very friendly and service almost perfect. The restaurant is good and fresh. I was a little disappointed with the small paper napkins on the table which was beautifully set suited for a silver service but this is my opinion of course.
The rooms were equally as clean but slightly small. But the room furniture was of a very adequate size and hence, we were able to keep the room neat and tidy. The biggest disappointment was the small screen television! I did not know that they came in such a small size!! We could barely watch anything sitting opposite in bed.

Caution: Not suitable for persons with mobility problems!
1. All rooms are equipped with a bath;
2. Too many steps to enter/exit the hotel - to get to reception one needs to go up 2 steps after entering the hotel via another three steps;
3. The restaurant is accessible only via 5 stairs.

Room Tip: Ask for a seaview room.

I had intended to try out this hotel from its inception, but its 3 star rating would put me off in favour of surrounding 4-stars. Well I finally gave it a try and I wished I had done so before! The hotel owner is always around, making sure his guests enjoy their stay and the hotel is managed and run professionally. I have rarely come across such courteous and caring staff in any hotel I have stayed at. The restaurant is also very good, proof of this being a full house in off-peak season.....when many of the good surrounding restauarants had available tables.
The only negative point I would make is the size of the rooms...the smallest I have ever stayed at. Obviously built at a time when tourism to this island was booming and with a view to a kill in occupancy vs. footprint. The rooms would be much more comfortable if linked and converted into suites.

This is a really nice hotel in a very quiet location.
The rooms are so small there's no room for a chair.
I have never stayed anywhere cleaner.
The food is generally excellent.
On my stay we had a singer / guitarist twice at dinner and he was the real talent,
Pity " Basil Fawltey Is My Hero " rules the roost, and most staff think : " He's the man ".

Room Tip: In winter, the sun hits the higher balconies only. ( Of course l was on the first floor, next to a b...

A welcoming family run hotel with a superb restaurant, brilliant service, smart rooms and great views. If you are on Gozo, even just for the day, you really can't do better than heading down to Xlendi and checking out their Zafira restaurant. All in all a wonderful place with wonderful people.
Heartily recommended!

Room Tip: Pay the little bit extra and get a room with a sea balcony.

We were staying in Zaghra but travelling around the island and had planned looking at the San Andrea for a stay at Xmas 2014 so called in for a meal a few times during our stay in December 2013.

Well. What can I say. The first time we had lunch, just one course but it was amazing. We both had pasta dishes, one lasagne and one ravioli. Absolutely the best pasta outside of Italy we have ever tasted. We saw other meals being brought out and the presentation, service .......... everything was perfect.

We called on several other occasions during our two weeks and the standard was exactly the same and on the Sunday we were absolutely gob smacked at the queue which must have been continuous for about four hours. Most people were locals but some tourists. That is a clear indication and comment on how good the restaurant at this hotel actually is.

Ooooh and not to forget THAT view..............

If you are anywhere near Xlendi you HAVE to have a meal here.
