my boyfriend and I stayed for the 3rd time in this hotel this time was the better one since we visited, the hotel its getting better and better as I noticed they are doing are great jobs in bathrooms , turning to a modern look, cleaning was good ,food in the restaurant was good either when its to breakfast and even in during dinner the restaurant staff is so dedicated on their job they treat you in a manner to welcome and comfortable you during your b'fast/dinner. we really enjoy the room , we had a valley view room,still there are some issues regarding mtn to be take care of specialy when it comes secure rooms. And I wish to give a tip about pillows aren't so comfortable. I wish to thank the general manager Brian Caruana to attend to our needs to makes us comfortable .we really enjoyed it and for sure we will be back for other break.

This is one of the most charming hotels I've ever stayed in. I took my Guide Dog with me and he was made most welcome by all the staff - who didn't fuss over us either.

The rooms are spacious and kept very clean. The beds were large and comfortable and the bathrooms were sparkling.

The hotel grounds are lovely. I particularly like the entrance, which is a beautiful grotto hidden between the street and reception. This also means that children (and dogs) can't escape! The bar, lounge and poolside areas are spacious and well-kept. Although the hotel was full, it still felt quiet and relaxed.

We stayed on a half-board basis and very much enjoyed the food. There was a good choice at breakfast and dinner, with an extensive list of local and European wines. Vegetarians may want to stray off the house menu though, as an omelette was offered every night (maybe a pasta dish would work better here).

The hotel is located in a peaceful part of Xaghra, with amazing views over the valley. If you don't hire a car it's a ten-minute walk up to the town square, where you can take in the glorious church, eat at the handful of cafés and restaurants whilst waiting for the bus to Victoria or the coast route to Marsafalon or Ramla. A car would be useful if you're planning on a lot of sightseeing, but we were happy to slow the pace down and use the bus (which is on time).

On our first night we had an issue with the room, and without any fuss the staff assessed the problem, gave us another (better) room, helped us move and had workmen in the next day to fix it. they certainly take their customer service seriously, which is probably why a number of the other guests we spoke to were repeat visitors. We certainly will be.

Stayed for the second year running at the Cornucopia, this time in a suite rather than the bungalow that we had last year. Would highly recommend, very spacious, well appointed, large room, huge bathroom, great balcony. Breakfast is standard buffet style, nothing to complain about, plenty of choice and pleasant surroundings. We were B & B so cant comment on evening meals, we preferred to walk into Xaghra and eat al fresco in the village square. The staff are lovely, Brian and his team go out of their way to be welcoming, and we recognised many of the staff from last year, always a good sign. This hotel is well situated for a quiet break, the village is lovely and the locals very friendly and welcoming, and you can walk to many places quite easily, or get a bus to anywhere on the island. Weather was very hot as well, so a bonus (for us, although the locals were wanting some rain!) Will be returning next year.

Room Tip: A valley view room gives stunning views

We stayed for a week out of season in October. On the first night we arrived late and we were allocated a very small room which was stuffy and inadequate. After speaking to the manager in the morning we were moved to large triple room which was a vast improvement, however, the beds were old and creaky with very hard mattresses and cheap pillows. In general the hotel is very good and the staff friendly and helpful with excellent food on offer. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel if you are looking for somewhere quiet to chill out and relax completely. Most residents were middle aged couples or single persons with only a couple of families with young children. Not recommended for teenagers. If the rooms were upgraded slightly it would make all the difference.

Room Tip: Don't take a room low down across from the pool area. Garden view rooms are the best.

Nice location, quiet great measures in the bar! swimming pools were nice and clean.However can see that in high season it would be cramped and noisy with little or no privacy. It obviously popular with some countries more than others

Room Tip: go out of season.

Thank you for finding the time to post a review on Trip advisor.
We are pleased to read that you found our Hotel and grounds nice and clean. I would like to point out that the Hotel has only 48 rooms, so even when full it is never cramped.

This is a hotel that offers you adequate and basic accommodation so manage your expectation wisely. Being there outside of the peak period was great with plenty of room around the pool to relax, no shortage of tables at breakfast or in the evening, but! I would not relish the thought of being there in peak season. The service was friendly if slow and the staff poorly trained in even the most basic aspects of service. A total lack of understanding as to how to serve and pour wine, an alamost faulty towers delivery of service in the dining room and an almost non-existent presence of management. Putting all these comments in perspective it was not expensive and I was there to relax so just rolled with the lack of professionalism and the best efforts of the staff. My comments are directed at the hotel management as they need to show leadership and guidance to their team.

Room Tip: Look at the sister hotel Ta Cenc, it is everything the Cornucopia is not. I went to have a look arou...

Dear Scotty011,
Thank you for finding the time to post your review. We are glad that you had a relaxing holiday.
Although we try our best to give the best possible service on all levels of the Hotel, it is true that at this time of the year we have trainees in the restaurant, so we do apologies if the service wasn’t up to your expectations. None the less your comments have been fully noted and necessary action taken.
Once again thank you, as your feedback is very important to us.
Kind regards

I resided in this beautiful hotel only a few days, but they made me very happy and satisfied. The stuff is just lovely, will help you any time -for excample- as I am really spontan, I wanted to use a swimming pool in 1am and the very nice stuff men allowed me to do that and turned on the lights only for me (pool works only till 8pm). However, I would recommend you to visit this beautiful hotel in their beautiful country. :)

Thank you very much for the hosting!
