Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The caves are quite large and filled with beautiful formations. The kindest and sweetest lady explained us everything thoroughly about the formations when she walked us through the caves. It is easy to visit this, when you visit the Ggantija temple as they are close to each other in Xaghra. A must-see in Gozo.

We paid 3€ each person to the grotto. The experience wasn't worth it.
It was ok but without wow effect. We had like 10 minutes tour.

There were only three of us on the tour and the guide was friendly and very informative, answering our questions and highlighting interesting rock formations. Great value and definitely worth a visit.

It was very intresting to know how these caves were formed. Also if you want a little cooling for sunny day it is very good place to visit. The price was 3 eur per person. The tour takes 15-30 minutes. The owner was very friendly.

Very cool to see! Interesting background because it was found accidentally during digs for a well.
Friendly tour guide that explains a lot. It’s quite small - Will take 5 mins max. to walk around! Would recommend checking it out :)

What a find this place was! Greeted at the door by Mrs Xerri and a personal guided tour of their "Grotto" complete with the history of how it was found by her husband's grandfather while he was digging for a well. €3 each but definitely worth it. Amazing piece of history

Imagine your grandpa is looking for water, building a well. And then he finds a cave under your house, with stalactites and stalagmites. That's what you'll find in the house of the family. Very impressive and the price, is really good (2.5€).
It's not so big, you can visit it in 30min.

Intriguing to see a cave like this underneath a house. If you’ve visited many caves this will not bring you much that is new but an interesting family history nevertheless. If you’re in the area it’s worth a quick tour. Guide could do with some training in interpersonal skills - bland, robotic delivery and complete personality failure. If you don’t want people coming then shut it down!

We visited Xerri's Grotto after visiting Ninu's Cave which is a smaller cave also located in the village within another ladies home. We were greeted by the lady who lives there and she led us down a gorgeous spiral staircase down into the cave. This cave is a lot bigger than Ninu's cave and you can walk around this one, we found it super quirky to find a cave underneath a random House, it really is worth seeing. The lady who showed us around made it very interesting and comical telling us what animals she thought the different rock formations, stalagmites and stalactites looked like. She also helped find great spots for photos. As with Ninu's cave I've also noticed some negative comments, which again I don't understand, they are sharing a unique, piece of history with the world and are welcoming you into their home, showing the cave upon a suggested donation. We were happy to give them €5 for the experience of seeing not only a cave but a cave within a rather unique setting. You can clearly tell you're going into someone's home to view the cave so don't complain about it being there if you're choosing to see it.
