This is a family run guesthouse, and you can tell as it’s is just perfect in every way. The rooms are spacious, immaculately clean, with a wonderful modern bathroom. Beds were so comfortable so sleep was not a problem. Lovey selection for breakfast, from continental to the good old English and everything in between. The location could not be better either, out of the door, 20 paces or so and the promenade and beach awaits with a large number of restaurants bars etc. stay away from the big chain hotels and book a stay here. You won’t regret it.

I cannot rate this place highly enough We arrived late at night after being badly let down by an Airbnb on other side of island We were taken there by a local taxi driver We were met by Sonia and her dad They made us feel so so welcome We stayed in room 15 which had what I can only describe as a stunning princess and the pea type double and a single Fab air conditioning, modern lift and large modern bathroom Next morning we went for breakfast Everything from home made cakes and jams to full English , hams bread cheese etc and no trouble if you wanted to vary the offering Twenty second walk to the beach Spotlessly clean Sonia switches effortlessly between a number of languages Tv in each room had numerous satellite channels but they are affected by the wi fi which like everywhere on the island a bit hit and miss Such a shame as they have obviously invested heavily Do not miss the opportunity to visit the very best example of how a family run business should be Would not stay anywhere else

My 4th visit to this exquisite family run guest house. Sonia the owner makes my stay feel like I’m returning home to the family for another reunion. The room, always room 13 lol, is immaculate and perfect for my needs. Breakfast, a full English leaves you full for most of the day, not to mention the cakes that are available and all the other treats. The staff, the Ladies are wonderful and want nothing more than to make your stay the best, service at breakfast, the attention to detail when cleaning and always a friendly smile. I’m already planning my return for next year which seems so long away. Definitely would not stay anywhere else, for me this is the perfect place.

We stayed at this fantastic guesthouse at the beginning of August. The accommodation is perfect spotlessly clean and very well maintained. Sonia and her family and staff are all a great advert for the Maltese people, friendly and helpful. Try the homemade cakes at breakfast they are superb. We have already booked to go back next May for a week, which is the best recommendation we can give. Can't wait to be back there.

Have just spent a week staying at this wonderful B&B. The hosts, Sonia and Anna could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The accommodation was spotless and the aircon just right. The breakfast was relaxing and comprehensive. The location, just back from the front at Marsalforn was just right for me. I look forward to my next stay at Maria Giovanna

I spent a week at the guest house, and when I go to Gozo next, I will stay there again. It is, to say the least, an enchanting place. The general decor is of that of a time gone by, very atmospheric and cosy. It is well situated, just back from the main promenade. The rooms have air conditioning which is very effective. The bathroom was clean, and well equipped. I particularly enjoyed the fresh fruit cocktail for breakfast, together with a large pot of coffee. The hosts are very friendly and knowledgeable. Looking forward to returning.

We spent 6 nights here and it was perfect. The room was clean, pretty and comfortable. The breakfast was amazing- so much choice. The hosts are friendly and relaxed. We were diving and the location was ideal. There is a flat roof terrace with a sink and driers where we could clean and dry our dive stuff. Would thoroughly recommend going here. Claire and Polk

This house was the home away from home … so caring , so lovely , so nice . Perfect breakfast with homemade cake and local products, spotless clean, the owners so helpful with organizing the transfers and a private round trip on the island. Most of the restaurants and dive schools are so close to the hotel

This is the cleanest, friendliest,most professional B&B we have ever stayed in. From a wonderful, freshly cooked breakfast, to a spotlessly clean, beautiful room. I have stayed all over the UK and worldwide too. Absolutely first class. Thank you

Maria Giovanna Guesthouse is very clean, easily accessible by car and public transport, lies right in the heart of Marsalforn and is a traditional home full of character but with all modern amenities available, including lift, wifi, Iptv etc. Sonia, the host, is truly helpful and the breakfast is simply delicious. Would highly recommend it and hope to return in the future.
