Coming back to the Maria Giovanna is like going to meet family that you haven't seen for a while. Anna and Sonia always make everybody feel most welcome to this attractive old house, full of character and excellently situated in Marsalforn. Scrupulously clean, the rooms have a period charm augmented by constantly available hot water in modern bathrooms. Air conditioning... More

They have beach toys to borrow, beach towels, and sunscreen, shampoo, etc. Take what you need. Free and good wifi.The staff are excellent. The rooms are made up each day. Everyone is helpful.

This has got to be THE place to stay in Marsalforn, Gozo, Malta! Twin sisters Anna and Sonia have turned their grandmother's residence into a fantastic B&B hotel. It even has a lift! We had a room on the third floor for six nights with its own small balcony and bathroom. There was a "peek-a-boo" view of the seashore just... More

We stayed here for three nights. Firstly the positives. Excellent communication prior to arrival. It is a family run guesthouse, Sonia and Anna make you feel at home straight away. Lots of little extras such as spare beach towels and toiletries to make use of for free. Anna and Sonia and their father are just wonderful and always willing to... More

A well kept guest house, very close to Marsalforn seafront and restaurants. Breakfast was sumptuos ~ cooked breakfast, fresh fruit, home made cakes, biscuits, cereals and yoghurt. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Room was clean, spacious and traditionally decorated. Wi-fi was fast and free. We shall definitely return to Maria Giovanna Guest House on our next visit to Gozo!

A beautiful guest house literally a stones throw from the waters of Marsalforn. This family run guest house is beautiful. Rooms are traditional with well hidden modernisation so it doesn't encroach on your typical Gozitan stay. The family are friendly and cannot do enough for you.
