“Wish we could have stayed longer!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

We booked to stay here for one night, as we were on holiday in Malta for a week and wanted to spend some time in Gozo. I am so glad we choose this place and we will definitely return. The staff were so welcoming and accommodating. The rooms were lovely, we had a sea view and it was just what I had imagined. There was a problem with our shower and they came and fixed it straight away. We also ate here for dinner out on the terrace and it was lovely. it's such a great location for a romantic getaway and we were just sad that we hadn't booked a longer stay.

Room Tip: It's definitely worth booking a sea view room just for the views.

Stayed for 3 nights, San Andrea is a family run corner small hotel. Although check in was at 3 pm, my room was ready when I checked in at noon, smooth check in. Hotel is spotless, their main restaurant (Zafiro - which is right on the water's edge) - you must go and eat there because the food is exquisite, fresh and moderately priced, breakfast is adequate but filling. Downside - rooms are very small and the bathroom in my case (I'm a big bloke) was a dollhouse size. I booked a sea view and well worth every penny. Staff are very friendly. I will definitively return

Room Tip: Book a sea view room

The location is great. Our room was quite small and looked over the dive shop. We travelled as part of a package, so I'm guessing the price did not include rooms with balconies looking over Xlendi bay! The rooms were quite small but perfectly fine and clean. It would have been nice to have a fridge though.
Check in was not anything friendly. The first night we were there there was a bachelor party on top floor, they were so noisy. I could handle people noises, but there were other noises like things being thrown etc and a loud cracking sound that reverberated around the atrium. I complained at reception and the guy (same person who checked us in) said it would be over soon. Another hour later it was.
however, The next night, I had a problem with the aircon and the manager could not be more helpful. He came straightaway and fixed it and was very friendly and it was not a bother for him. I suspect that there needs to be more work on getting some front of house staff like the manager!
The attached restaurant Zafiro was very nice, as we ate there one night.

Room Tip: One of the lower floors incase there is an event in the lounge bar on 5th floor!

Our group from Australia spent the 2nd week of July at the San Andrea Hotel.
The situation is perfect, right on the waterfront of beautiful Xlendi Bay.
We were immediately made to feel welcome and the management and staff could not have done more to make our stay more memorable, from arranging for us to start their excellent breakfast at 6am each day (normally 8am) to providing a bus to take us to and from Mgarr Harbour.
Attention to detail at this hotel is obvious and appreciated by guests.
From the sea view rooms and the restaurant (Zafiro, where you could eat inside or out) the view of Xlendi Bay is superb. There are many restaurants along the waterside but I kept coming back to this one as the level of service and quality of food was second to none.
Excellent all round, good value, very clean and highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms are fine but if you are keen on a view ask for a "Sea View" room.

This is a smartly run, unpretentious, and realistically-priced hotel. Its location is spot on. My only negative comment concerns a rather frosty and perfunctory check-in devoid of both smile and eye-contact. Otherwise no complaints. Look forward to returning in the near future.

Room Tip: Try to avoid room on the left of the hotel as you look out to sea. Can be quite noisy with traffic...

Had a great stay at this hotel on our tour of the Maltese islands, the staff were very friendly had a good breakfast every morning and all the restaurants in the bay are very good, I would especially recommend the gozitan rabbit!

Room Tip: if your there you may as well get one with the sea view

I spent one night in this hotel. First remark: extreme warm welcome and kindness of the owner.
Very reasonable price. Optimum location on the sea, near good restaurants.
Room small but adequate to price, and very clean. Wifi free in the room.

Room Tip: Any room is Ok as streets are quiet
