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. The daughters run front of house and the kitchen, Dad cooks breakfast and serves... More

Such a comfortable, welcoming , quaint , bed and breakfast. You are well looked after, in a good sized house, even the smaller rooms are plenty big enough with a balcony to check the sea, and catch the sun in the evening.Every morning the breakfast is delicious. Such an easy walk to the bus stop, and most importantly the Sea... More

Charming rooms with rustic decor, old-school metal-frame beds (wouldn't recommend these to men taller than 180cm though!), all the modern facilities one may need (good pressure in the shower, strong wifi, AC, elevator etc), excellent location: just by the sea (they could advertise their guesthouse saying they have the pool, since the bay is SO close!), million amazing restaurants in...

If you're thinking of staying here, please do not hesitate. The family running the guesthouse go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one. Accessibility not a problem as there is a lift. And to top it all, it is located just a stone's throw away from the beach.

Maria Giovanna is a really special place and if you can stay here, you should. It's a family run (3 generations!) B&B set on the bay at Marsalforn. This is a great location connected by frequent, cheap and air conditioned buses to the rest of the island. There are numerous dive centres here that will take you anywhere but if... More

We didn't stay at the guest house itself, but at one of Maria's apartments on the West side of Marsalforn bay. The apartment itself is quite large, and offers all the basics + a small terrace with view on the bay. It's within walking distance of the town center and beach. Breakfast is at the guest house, a 5' walk... More
