From the warmth of the arrival to our goodbyes the personal and very friendly stay was memorable. The room, the breakfast and close proximity to the promenade, restaurants and sea was perfect. We are very grateful and will be likely to plan a return break here.

Having stayed here on many occasions, I know that all of the 5* reviews are well and truly merited, The friendly reception, the historic building, bedrooms that are not all clones of each other and the superb breakfasts. Air conditioning in the rooms is available for those who want it and televisions are a new addition. Well located just back from the Marsalforn sea front, it is suited to all guests but especially handy for divers with 6 dive centres located within a very short walk. A major plus for them is the flat roof where you can dry kit overnight, or just sit in the sun. It is not surprising that so many guests return year after year - i will be going back again!

Fifth visit. Still has genuine Gozitan charm with high standard of comfort and service. Even better now with recent upgrade eg TV in room, new showers (superb). Friendly and amenable hosts. First class breakfast - could not be better. Plenty of local restaurants etc and we love the location even though it's very busy in peak season.

Delightful gem in Gozo. Definitely the place to stay in Malsoforn. I chose this place based on the tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed! Maria Giovanni is a friendly family run guesthouse (15 bedrooms, with access to an elevator) by Anna and Sonia, who were accommodating and helpful. On arrival, we were greeted by Sonia and her father. Sonia showed us to our room. There is an elevator to go up to higher floors. I had booked in advance and was allocated two rooms adjacent to each other, as requested. Excellent WiFi connection (bonus for the two teenagers), good sized Internet TV which provided great choice of channels. Daily cooked breakfast with a variety of bacon, eggs, toast, and pancakes. There’s also homemade cakes. Choice of teas (English and herbal) and coffees Rooms are cleaned daily. There’s tea and coffee making facilities in the room. There was also complimentary bottles of water, which was a welcome sight on arrival. Beds comfortable - 2 pillows per person. New and modern bathroom, small section of toiletries, with showers that had the right water pressure! Location - Close to the beach and promenade. Malsoforn was also a good location as a base, as it had several excellent diving schools nearby. I would definitely return here!
