We were there for 4 nights in early December, and got some cool and very windy weather. As a result Xlendi was almost deserted with most of the restaurants opening only for the weekend trade. However, St Patricks still offered a full service including sun-loungers on the roof-top terrace, though the small pool was empty. It was too cold for swimming anyway. Xlendi is a very picturesque quiet place and probably the nicest place to stay in Gozo. There is an easy walk to the nearby fort where you can see unusual rock formations, great views and salt pans cut into the limestone.
If you are in an inside room, with a window onto the internal atrium you cannot see what the weather is like until you go outside. If you leave the window open, there is echo and noise from the atrium which also has the stairs. All surfaces are tiled and from the room you can hear people walking along the corridor.
We could not get the aircon to get the temp in the room below 24c even though it was only 17 outside.
Room and bathroom were clean through the bath had some rust and the shower leaked when bath was filling (minor points).
Breakfast buffet was ok and we could order hot food if required at no extra cost, which was better than picking through a hot buffet.
Bar is very small and seating in reception, atrium and tv areas is limited. If weather was better we could have sat outside as the hotel is right on the seafront.
Overall, a good hotel experience.
The reception, bar and dining room staff were all friendly and helpful.
