The Maria Giovanna Guest House (it should really be called a Guest Home) is a traditional Gozo seaside townhouse which has been owned by the same family since it was built more than 100 years ago. It has been lovingly maintained to a very high standard, the wooden beams are an integral part of the building, not just for decoration. It is furnished and decorated with beautiful antiques but has all the amenities you would expect in a modern hotel, such as comfortable beds, a good lift, powerful shower, multi channel TV, air conditioning, WiFi, telephone and teamaking facilities and is immaculately clean. If you need to exercise there are great hill and coast walking and cycling routes, if you want to swim or sunbathe, the sea is less than 100 metres away. There are many shops, bars, restaurants, cafés, and of course dive centres, within five minutes walk. Sonia, your hostess, is an amazing lady with hospitality in her blood, having started to help in the family business at the age of ten, learning her arts and skills from her mother and grandmother. On entering the business full time she gained all the necessary formal qualifications. As well as being highly organised and efficient, Sonia is genuinely kind, caring and helpful ; nothing is too much trouble for her. She organised our transfers and PCR tests (not an easy task) and was a great source of advice and information, far better than Google. Finally her breakfasts are the best I’ve ever had in any hotel. I normally stay in modern five star hotels, which are usually impersonal and lacking in character, and instantly forget about them when I’ve left. I’ll never forget the Maria Giovanna Guest House I unhesitatingly award five hearts.…
Everything's perfect in this quaint guest house. The owners are friendly, the rooms are designed to high finish while retaining the characteristics of a typical Maltese house. And in summer you're having a dip within 15 seconds from leaving the house. Would recommend anytime.
Maria Giovanna Guest House is very central. Easily accessible to main amenities. It is a very clean accommodation. Rooms are equipped with air conditioning, TV, which has a really good variety of stations and movies and coffee and tea making facilities. Breakfast is also very varied. All is very fresh and tasty. The building is also very well kept and renovated. I really recommend this accommodation to anybody visiting Gozo. I will definitely come again.
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.
Everything about our stay at Maria Giovanna Guest House was fabulous. Owners were super nice. Breakfast was perfect. Location can't be any better. We loved our first trip to Marsalforn and hope we have the opportunity to stay at Maria Giovanna Guest House again! Hopefully, sooner than later :)
