This 4 star hotel almost "wowed" us! Reception staff on arrival were on of the best I have encountered in or travels. The room was large and comfortable providing excellent sleep quality. The bathroom was equally as welcoming. Furnishings are excellent and wonderful bright room which makes the stay welcoming. A few deficiencies however were noted, two of them with...

Overall I think I would give this hotel a 3.5 for low season as not all of the amenities were open/available. The Hotel is at the north of the Island with the shuttle ferry for Comino directly outside, Gozo Ferry/Paradise Bay 1km away. The location is lovely and quiet. The hotel advertises a private beach but this was not anything...

We had a very enjoyable week here; I cannot understand the people who have left reviews stating it was too remote - do they not do their research before they travel? - we did and it was just what we required; it was lovely waking up to the sound of birdsong not heavy traffic and tourist noise. We agree with...

Very friendly and helpful staff. Stayed 7 nights and location was a bit isolated for Valetta but close to ferry to Gozo, which was well worth a visit. Bus service excellent and cheap, buy an all day ticket for 1.5 Euros. Health spa was excellent and was good for those grey days when the weather outside was not good.
