This hotel was brought to our attention by previous "Trip Advisor" submissions. I was attracted initially by the descriptions of the Island Of Gozo but then began to take more of an interest in the comments on the Hotel. I knew I had to "sell" the hotel to my wife;she is very particular where we stay , right down to the beach towels for the sunbeds to coathangers in the wardrobe..
I had read with interest that hotels in Malta and Gozo were supposedly one grade below advertised when compared with those of European equivalent.
I booked direct with the hotel exactly as recommended by other uses, sea view , 4th floor, bed & breakfast , leaving the option of evening meal to be booked on a daily basis after seeing the menu for the day listed in reception.
From the first moment I made contact to the day we left it was perfect. The staff were friendly and courteous , the amenities first class, the most amazing views from the balcony of the harbour with the luzzo's (fishing boats) chugging back and forth . The bay of Marsalforn spreading before you with the twinkling lights of about a dozen restaurants beckoning you towards them as the sun set beyond the distant hills.
Streets , quiet and unplanned , people so obliging and helpful, buses of a bygone age transporting locals and holidaymakers alike anywhere on the island for 65p or less.
It would be unfair to single out one restaurant above another but a little more than an half-hour walk away in Qbaijar a small "shirley valentine" style eating house called Chez Amand produces the most exquisite lobster together with the most romantic setting you could wish for.
The most relaxing holiday my wife and I have ever had; Go to Gozo and the Calypso before the 21st century catches up with them.
