We have recently returned after another very pleasant week at the Calypso in Marsalforn. My wife & I have been back many times since our first visit in 1975 and now being retired, we are able to visit twice a year. The staff are on the whole, very friendly, and we are frequently greeted with "Welcome back" which we do appreciate.
We find the sea-view rooms have a good view overlooking the harbour and are a good place to "people watch", although they do only get the benefit of the sun from mid-afternoon onwards. Rooms are a reasonable size and bed linen was changed regularly. The bathroom was clean & toiletries replenished when necessary.
We take the half-board option and find that by having a good breakfast we can manage to get through the day with only a minimal lunch. Breakfast offers a good choice of traditional English or Continental although the cooked food it can be a little "tired" by the time it goes onto the plate. Personally I preferred the back bacon to the streaky when it was available. The presence of a chef to cook eggs/omelettes to order is a bonus.
The evening meals we found to be good value, there always being a choice of three starters & main courses.
Getting around the island has been made easier with the introduction of the new bus company and it is to be hoped that the present services will continue.
