“Very Special”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

We had the most wonderful and relaxing 7 nights at Maria's B&B in early August. Our room was very impressive with high stone walls, view over the pool and extremely comfy bed. With daily house keeping the room and bathroom were kept impeccably clean and were a joy to return to after a long day exploring the island in the sun - particularly as there was a fan and mosquito nets on the windows. The owners were fantastic and amazingly helpful from organising transfers from the airport on arrival to the delicious breakfasts and tasty cakes made daily for the guests. They arranged bikes for us to explore the island and also gave us medical advice and directions to the doctors when I annoyingly suffered an ear infection.
The ability to use the kitchen and have allocated fridge space was an extra bonus - if we wanted to eat in one evening, we could prepare supper and enjoy out by the pool or on our balcony enjoying the beautiful views of the countryside.
Would definitely recommend and visit again.

Room Tip: We had room 4 which was large, airy, with pool views.

My wife and I had a lovely 5 night stay in July. The room was larger than expected. We had free fans to keep it cool. The breakfast was amazing. Lovely cakes. Bacon and eggs. Mosquito netted window in room. Beautiful building. Very helpful owners. Sonia is a great host, and her travel advice was really good. It is quiet, private and tranquil. You'll need a hire car to appreciate the location. There's a supermarket shop 2 mins by car. It takes 10 minutes to get to the coast in most directions for lots of good swimming. Highly recommended for a restful break and for those who like a bit more of an adventure.

If you're thinking UK B&B, then think again. This is a wonderful old stone house, with some but not too many modern touches. It feels medieval on the inside but with the required modern attributes to make life a lot more bearable. The outdoor terraces are lovely and the area around the pool ins tranquil and sun soaked.

It's a must! It's as good an excuse as any just to visit Gozo...

The staff, all family, were wonderfully accommodating but never intrusive, it felt more like a guesthouse or boutique hotel than any B&B I have ever stayed in before. A definite 5 star establishment.

Room Tip: Book in advance, no wifi in the top floor rooms, though the room was lovely and 'big'. Ther...

We stayed three nights at Maria B&B. The place was unique! Middle of peaceful countryside there was lovely old and spacious house. We had lovely room and we could use common space: living rooms, terraces, outdoor pool and well equipped kitchen.
It would be ideal if you have car to move around Gozo but you can use buses as well. Next to Maria B&B there is a bus stop where buses run hourly to Victoria. Supermarket is near too. Daily served breakfast was rich and very delicious!
We really enjoyed our stay, thanks to warm and helpful family!

Just got back from an 11 night stay at Ta Maria in Ghasri - it has been just perfect.
The B&B is in a large farmhouse with a lovely courtyard setting for breakfast and a welcome pool for that late afternoon dip on your return from a day out. Sonia has it down to a fine art making guests feel at home, creating a welcoming home away from home. Guest have the use of the kitchen along with a fridge which enables you to either cook at the B&B or keep your drinks cool either way its a welcome extra. The breakfast Sonia provides covers all tastes from a "Full English!" to the continental offering of meats cheese fruit yoghurts etc and to add to all this are Sonia's home baking her cakes are all delicious and the kitchen is the first stop for all on their return from a day out as she leaves cake available for you to help yourself, a lovely touch to a perfect B&B. Our room #4 was huge with a double bed and a single in and enough room to put more beds if needed, it was kept spotless by Sonia's daily help who were lovely ladies always a smile on their faces. We would come back after eating out and sit out on the top veranda and just absorb the view and the peace and quiet and enjoy a glass of wine before going to bed, this is one of the most relaxing holidays we have ever been on and will no doubt be returning to Ta Maria again. Nothing was too much trouble for Sonia and it was lovely to see the family involved in the business as both her sister, son and dad were around at various times - such a lovely family. Gozo has found a little niche in our hearts and we shall be back. We made use of the large parasol that was available which enabled us to enjoy the local feel of Dhalet Qurrot, a lovely little bay but with no shade! Even though we had a car,the day bus ticket is excellent value for money as for €5.20 for the two of us, we could use as many buses as we wanted in day, all were on time and ran hourly up to about 11pm.We did not see all of the island and look forward to coming back and more exploring and of course a further stay at Ta Maria - thanks Mandy & Dave

We had an amazing week at Maria's, the location is beautiful in a very rural setting. Maria and Sonia were incredibly welcoming and house is beautiful, with a lovely pool and a shady courtyard with loungers, chairs and tables. There is a very well appointed kitchen and plenty of cool indoor space for really hot days. Everything is spotlessly clean without feeling sterile.

Breakfast is fantastic, Sonia's baking is fantastic and she caters for gluten free diets too (as do many of the restaurants around Gozo) and the range of fresh fruit a real bonus. If you don't fancy self-catering, there are a number of good restaurants in Victoria/Rabat which is only a 10 minute bus ride away (the buses run hourly and are very reliable). The supply of beach towels and snorkels was a lovely touch.

All in all we couldn't recommend this place highly enough.

We have spent ten wonderfull days in Maria B&B on June 2013.
If you intend to visit Maltes islands, just choose Gozo; if you choose Gozo, just choose Ghasri village, if you choose Ghasri, just choose Maria B&B.
Gozo has kept the original beauty of mediterraneen islands. Ghasri is a typical country village which is the starting point of marvellous walks and Maria B&B is an exceptionnal building, with a very nice swimming pool.
Most of all, the familial team delivers fabulous services. Many thanks.
