“Wonderful location”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

Stayed for two nights at the beginning of the November, in a non-ocean view room. Situated on the ocean-front in Xlendi, a picturesque little village. Staff were friendly and helpful and our room was ready well before the stated check-in time.
Our room was on the 4th floor, with a view of the street below. The room and bathroom was clean and comfortable with a huge bed. We didn't have any issues with the size of the room, but did not spend much time there as Gozo has so much else to do anyway. We do not regret paying extra for a ocean-view room as it got dark at about 5, so wouldn't have been able to take advantage of the views anyway.
The included breakfast was what you expect in such a hotel, with a range of cereals and a couple of hot choices. A full cooked English breakfast was available at an extra charge. We had to check out early on the last morning so missed breakfast, however the manager kindly offered to make us some sandwiches to take with us.
As it was the off-season, a number of the restaurants in Xlendi were closed for dinner so we chose to eat at the hotel restaurant. We took the set 3-course menu, which is offered at a discount to people who stayed at the hotel. Found it excellent value for money.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the San Andrea Hotel and regret that we had not spent more time in Gozo. If we go back, would not hesitate to stay here again.

The view from our seaview room was just perfect and the hotel's position is wonderful. The room was a bit on the small size as others have said, but a small price to pay for such a wonderful view with a nice balcony. Our bathroom was fine. Good continental breakfast (you can pay an additional 6 euros for full english). We had an evening meal in their restaurant which was very good and were given a discount as residents for the set menu. Staff were very good and we just had a wonderful holiday here. Xlendi is just perfect and San Andrea is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Book a sea veiw room

We booked this through new Experience Holidays who are a small company in North Wales. Chose the San Andrea based on location and feedback and were not disappointed. Paid extra for a sea view room which was well worth it. In fact the only drawback to this hotel, as others have noted, is that the rooms are a littel compact but are well appointed and size was not a problem. Bathroom was good size and had an excellent shower and bath. There were plenty of staff and we found them to be helpful and friendly. We had booked half board which gave us a 3 course dinner with a choice of 3 starters, 3 main courses, and numerous sweets. Although we could have chosen from the a la carte with a discount we never felt the need to - the food was really good. Sitting outside yards from the bay was a real bonus. We drank the local wine although wine buffs may prefer something more expensive. Overall excellent value for money and we would definitely stay there again.
The bus service on Gozo is excellent and we had a week's pass for 12 euros each. This helped with our walks as you could get a bus back to Victoria from almost anywhere. You can then either take another bus to Xlendi or walk back. The only problem we met was the heat - we did not expect it to be in the 80s in October! Walking is relatively easy although there is a fair bit of road work on some of them.
Xlendi itself is a vey quiet place with about 6 restaurants, 2 bars, a couple of shops which had variable opening times and a wonderful ice cram shop behind the hotel. Ideal is you want a quiet time.

Room Tip: If you can afford it go for a sea view room - it's worth the extra.

We have just returned from spending 3 nights at the San Andrea in Xlendi and wished it could have been for longer. We plan to return for a week next year. Everything was super, great service, helpful staff, clean rooms, foyer/lift/stairwell all good. Lovely balcony with a fabulous sea view-enough space to sit out on for two people. Great top room with terrace and sun loungers if you don't want the tiny beach or rocks to lie out on. Nothing was too much trouble with the polite staff and the real gem was the fantastic restaurant that was part of the hotel. The food was excellent and fantastic value with a super range of wines too. The house red was delicious! And you can't beat sitting right by the sea to eat with amazing sunsets which we had. The restaurant does actually have a very high tripadvisor rating separate to the hotel. It was a wonderful few days with so much to do locally we needn't have gone anywhere else. An added bonus was the beautiful warm sea which I hadn't expected. Can't wait to return.

my wife and I spent the 10/11/ October in this hotel, The hotel, dinning rooms, and bedrooms were first class,very clean and well maintained. All of the staff were great, they most helpful, polite, and nothing was too much trouble, it was our 39th wedding anniversary and the way we were looked after made it a wonderful day for us.We enjoyed the hotel location and views so much we have booked up for three days at Christmas.

Room Tip: A sea view room with balcony you will no better.
