This week I decided to surprise my girl with a mid-week break, and what better place than The Xara Lodge to spend a perfect time as a couple, and to enjoy the fantastic views from the rooms The Xara Lodge has to offer! The service is impeccable, the cleanliness of the place is fantastic. The breakfast is served at the... More

Beautiful location, lovely building, views to die for. Staff amazing, nothing is too much trouble. It's just a shame that there is no pool (although they will take you in the jag to a pool nearby) and nowhere to sunbathe. The plumbing is not brilliant, the building being so old probably means that it is difficult to modernise. There is... More

We stayed here for the first two nights of our honeymoon and were bowled over by the stunning beauty of the interior of the building. The staff are extremely helpful and polite, room service efficient and delicious (the house antipasti platter is superb!). We booked a room with a hot tub on the balcony and enjoyed amazing sunsets with a... More

We spent two nights at the beautiful Xara Palace and it was such a lovely place to stay. Steeped in history in beautiful Mdina we were transported back to another time long ago as Xara became our base to explore the beautiful walled city. We enjoyed our charming room complete with marble ensuite and gorgeous views from our window. So... More

Stopped on spec and took a table for dinner for 4 on 13 Sept 2016. Restaurant was great as was food and views but I don't do what I consider to be underhand pricing. Of course prices are stated but if you are in Malta and want a beer you order Cisk. Who checks the price? The money itself was... More

We have been visiting Gozo for over 12yrs and over the last few years have stopped off in Malta for a few days on the way home. This year we decided to stay in Mdnia and choose Xara Palace. All I can say is it was a perfect stay from when we arrived to when we left. Wonderful staff ,... More
