Good location near the coast, small balcony with sea view. Breakfast and hospitality by the owners and their staff was excellent. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Our bed was a bit hard for us but immaculately clean.

Great place to stay in Marsalforn, nice low key feel but very high standards of comfort! Very welcoming hosts too, always willing to help! Great location just off the main street and only a two second walk from main bus stop!

We spent three days in Gozo just after the new year to get away from the festive hassle and bask in the peace and luxurious greenery of a typical Gozitan mild winter. Maria Giovanna came highly recommended by friends, and we were not disappointed. It is built around an original old house, but the old charm has been retained and...
