“Perfect holiday break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

We have just returned from spending ten wonderful days at the Ta Cenc Hotel, the staff could not do enough to help you, the room was perfect, we had a suite. The food was excellent, more than enough, and very good quality.The service provided to take you to Victoria and the beach was very good. All in all a wonderful experience and look forward to returning again soon.

We spent one night here in August with two other families. The room was perfect and at last a room that could accommodate 3 children. The staff were very polite and extremely helpful. We did not eat here, apart from a delicious breakfast buffet, but had drinks and snacks, which each time were delivered to us by the pool by a delightful member of staff. The only thing to bear in mind is, if you're expecting a 5 star hotel like you would find in Paris, London, Istanbul you'll be disappointed, this is Maltese 5star which is more like 4 star.

The Ta Cenc Hotel is situated on the Sannat cliffs in Gozo and the views from the terrace and pools area are absolutely wonderful. Guests can walk behind the hotel over the completely unspoilt rugged rocky terrain towards the cliff edges and the sea - an area with interesting wild flowers at all times of the year and particularly so in the springtime. The hotel is built of honey coloured stone and blends perfectly into the natural landscape. It has two large outdoor pools (one for families) plus a really lovely walled garden and pool which is part of the spa. The spa has the usual facilities - including sauna, steamroom, jacuzzi and gym. Beauty treatments are available. Lunch on the terrace overlooking the sea is a great pleasure. This is a special place for anyone looking for peace and appreciation of the natural environment.

We visited this hotel in august 2012 for a weekend, and we can say that it was a great experience. The staff were very welcoming and the ambience was super nice and quiet. The spa area is totally calm and relaxing and the facilities were all functioning and in excellent condition. Our room was a bungalow, which is a totally different and original experience. The room is equipped with all the necessities that one would require. All in all, it was an amazing and unforgettable experience. We would definitely love to return for a second visit.

what a terrible disappointment when we went for dinner at the hotel. Not staying there as have a house round the corner. Thought it would be nice to take the parents for a drink and some food but it was the least enjoyable eve we have had. The service was slow and staff not friendly. Food not up to scratch. Wine didn't arrive till after the meal! Table not cleared and generally a very poor visit. Someone needs to re rate as not a 5 star any more. Would certainly not stay there or go back to visit.

Wonderful location, great pools (adult and family separate pools = great) but sadly lacking in service and customer care. Housekeeping staff arrived at 4:00pm to service my room, an indication of disorganisation or over worked understaffed department. Restaurant waiters sloppily dressed and un groomed (the maitre d'hotel was superb), breakfast buffet had excellent content but was displayed in 3 separate communicating rooms, and not supervised by ktichen staff to remove, replace etc resulting in half empty plates and table cloths splattered with food crumbs. I hope that someone can undertake a total management upgrade to restore this hotel to its former glory.

Almost gave this a two but the kantra lido area and the seclusion of the hotel itself keep it at 3. The restaurant manager was genuinely helpful, but as for the rest , where do I start ?
The owner had a go at us for parking our jeep at the lido in a hotel residents onlY area, he didn't bother to see if we were guests just snapped, till I showed him our room key.
The adults only pool is full of kids
The rooms are dirty and not cleaned properly, spiders webs over desk light fittings etc.
The hotel food is very over rated and very expensive, there are plenty of exceptional restaurants on the Island offering genuinely good food at far better prices. It would surely beat the piece of connective tissue that was presented to me as an entrecôte steak.
On a positive note, the food down at the hotels lido area is genuinely very good.
Would I go back to ta cenc, in brief no.
