“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

We had four lovely days in this charming, well-situated hotel. Our room was on the small side, but that apart everything was first rate. In particular, the staff could not have been more helpful or professional, and the restaurant, which was not expensive, served good, fresh food. The rooms were very clean, the shower and aircon worked well. We'd definitely return.

Stayed here for 6nts following a stay of 3 nts in Valletta ( see review for the Hotel Osborne.

Location fantastic and booked one of the the sea view rooms on a half board basis.The rooms were perfectly adequate but with an amazing view of Xlendi Bay and a lovely sunny balcony for most of the day.Room spotless with a decent hairdryer in the bathroom !!

Roof top terrace with only a few sun loungers but to be fair no-one hardly used them so it was never a problem getting one.Superb views of the bay and free use of the hotel's computer located on the top floor.

Great breakfast and even better evening meal - choice of a three course menu in the evening and food was served by wonderful waiting staff especially the two young waitresses.Food could either be served outside on the terrace or inside the main restaurant. Staff at the hotel are some of the friendliest we have ever met in over 30 years of travelling nothing ever being too much trouble.Jason the manager would often come and chat to the guests. The hotel and its staff are a real credit to him.

Resort itself is fairly small as are most resorts in Gozo but there are enough bars and restaurants around the hotel if you want to venture out. Bus stop just outside the hotel will take you into Victoria the capital in about 10 mins.
Beautiful and safe bay for swimming but not much of a beach - most people sunbathed on nearby rocks.


We loved Malta and Gozo - a nice combination and will definitely be back !!!

Room Tip: Defintely opt for sea view - the views are fantastic. We had a corner room 305 - I think they might...

This hotel's reputation as being one of the better ones in the area is well deserved. The staff are professional, and the rooms well appointed, although somewhat smaller than average.

It's well located, but a little difficult to find initially. Being so close to the restaurants and bars is an issue, because the Seaview rooms are not well insulated from the noise. Things do settle down, however, at midnight, but when one is trying to sleep on a Friday night for an early departure the next day, there are only so many cheers and poor renditions of 90's songs that one can endure.

In short, this hotel is a qualified recommendation if you can put up with its shortcomings.

Room Tip: If noise will bother your sleep, don't go for a sea view room.

We had three wonderful days at this hotel. Very clean throughout and the room comfortable quiet and well air conditioned. Good choice for breakfast with the best coffee in Gozo. What could be better than a swim at 8am and then breakfdast on their terrace. Service was good with helpful staff behind reception. Good restaurants along the waterfront, busses into Rabat within two minutes walk. Highly recommended.

A typical three star hotel. All the necessities you need. Reception personell very helpful especially Peter and another female. They did their best to accommodate us. No fridge in room but the reception female was very kind to provide a full iced bucket for daughters milk and manager was kind enough to offer use of bar fridge. Rooms are small yet were enough to accomodate us. Thank you for a short yet pleasant stay.

The rooms are very well airconditioned. You can be in your airconditioned room but feel you are on the beach as rooms are directly over the sea. For the more adventureous who actually make it to the beach, the hotel has an excellent restaurant where to recharge your fuel after a day of swimming. Hotel has also a busstop which is nearly on its doorstep and a public parking area right in front of it.

Room Tip: choose sea view

We had a superior room with a wonderful sea view. The room was clean but not so big, the hotel itself is very friendly and has a nice look. The sea is just in front of the hotel, and the Xlendi Bay is very impressive and beutiful! The hotel has a good restaurant, and there are a plenty more around, all of them have excellent sea food. The bus station is very close, you can reach the capital and many adorable villages from here.
Hotel personnel was helpful, but the receiption service was a bit wacky and slow.
In total it was a very good place to stay in, and we had an unforgettable vacation in Gozo.
