... view was great, but I still couldn’t see any sign of the famous cave. I asked an elderly couple parked in car, who pointed me down a road to the right. When I finally got there, I read the information board, and walked around the lookout, but couldn’t actually see the cave! I asked a middle-aged English guy who was also looking puzzled, and he said ‘I think it’s that,’ pointing to a small hole in the ground next to the board ...
... in the air. It was really fun to use the disc sander though.
That evening we got ready to go out and I borrowed one of Nicole’s dresses so I wouldn’t look completely dorky in my Kathmandu clothes.
Nicole, her Mum and I had a late dinner at a lovely restaurant called Otters which overlooks the ocean. I couldn’t make up my mind which meal I wanted, so I chose two of my favourite starters ...
... a lovely atmosphere and fascinating to see all the homes and workshops with people dressed in traditional robes. I tried a Maltese date pastry called imqaret, which was delicious. I also had a ‘coconut mushroom’ marshmallow type thing. Chrissy and Debbie were in disbelief that I’d never seen one before. All the traditional Maltese sweets are delightful but fattening!
Our next expedition was to the Arcadia mall. I had run out ...
... could have been that the wind was blowing so hard, I could hardly take a pic for fear of my iphone flying out of my hands to the Mediterranean below). Our next stop was the newly opened visitor center for the Neolithic Gjanti Temples a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This turned out to be a blessing, because when we walked outside to go down to the temples, the wind turned our umbrellas inside out and the temples ...
... m sure. Kind of an uneasy feeling as I wonder, what if one of them just snaps? I think I might go crazy if I set off in search for a better life and found myself stuck forever on a little island where I wasn't wanted, couldn't earn a living, and couldn't go anywhere else.
I'm reminded of the year 2000 when a mentally ill immigrant killed a woman in Almeria, Spain. In response, the Spaniards went on a rampage, burning down the camps of the migrant workers ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Calypso Hotel Marsalforn
Stayed early March and despite the somewhat windy weather had an enjoyable and relaxing time at the hotel. Our first time on Malta and found Gozo to be a very friendly place, no more so than the hotel staff. As to the recent negative report I can only assume that they were at another hotel as their descriptions do not match our week there. Rooms were clean and tidy. We arrived on a bleak and windy evening to find a very warm room, thankfully! Breakfast is a wide choice of cereals, fruit, cooked meats, bacon, sausages and eggs cooked to your specific order. Evening meals were very good, fish dishes being the best, with some puddings really excellent. The wine is sensibly priced. All in all a very relaxing time and we shall return
Can;t believe the negative comments
I cant understand the negative comments on this hotel. Value for money this proved to be an excellant week for me and my wife. the room was very good and clean, AC worked fine and veiws over the harbour were great.
The roof top bar and catering for snacks is super at a reasonable price. The staff without exception proved to be very polite and helpful, reception pointing the best value for car hire and local restaurants. Maybe we stayed in another calypso?
If in doubt GO!
Thank you Trip Advisor!!
A huge thank you to all trip adviser reviewers and saving our holiday from disaster, originally we were booked into Alexander Palace in St Julians, Malta. This hotel ended up being the worst in the Med. So like most went into trip adviser and found this hotel had the best reviews and booked 6 nights and what a fabulous six nights it was, the rooms were marvellous, the staff extremely friendly and professional, breakfast a delight, there isn't more we could of asked for. Well Done all and a huge thanks from us.
Fantastic Extended Weekend Break
We went for an extended weekend break to calypso hotel .... we thourghly enjoyed it. It was at a good price... the breakfast was fantastic and had an enormous range for a buffet.... the only suggestion is to change the sausauge its too strong and over powering for the morning. The rooms are very nicely decorated and the a/c kept the room nice a cool. However the only disapointment is the pool....its a bit small... if it was bigger it would be the best hotel for its price without doubt.... an indoor pool would be nice too... apart from that it was a fantastic four days. The staff were brilliant too
We have just been for a weekend break in Calypso Hotel, Marsalforn Gozo and it was wonderful. Considering the fact that this hotel has the most wonderful views of Marsalforn Bay, its prices are quite affordable. The service was very good, staff was exquisitely helpful, cleanliness impeccable and the food delicious. Well done goes to all those responsible for the excellent refurbishment and for the upgrading of this hotel!
Super hotel - very class!

The satff was very polite and helpful.
You must go to the Calyspo diving club! Very professionnals and nice
we went here for our 40th anniversary after some initial problems staff were wonderful and the second room was fantastic but no balcony furniture ( read previous reviews), in spite of this we felt very well looked after and thought the food and buffet nights were superb we took our gozitan friends to dinner there and they said it was the best in marsalforn,we would dearly love to go back and hope to do so this year my only complaint was no kettle our tea making facility in room and we love our tea
SUNSPOT TOURS -- POOR RATING NEW TOWER PALACE HOTEL, MALTA -- POOR RATING CALYPSO HOTEL, GOZO -- OUTSTANDING, UNBEATABLE RATING!
Can't fault it
I have not stayed in the Calypso Apartments, but I have recently stayed in the hotel, it is superb in every way, it has been refurbished to a very high standard, the food is excellent, the breakfast buffet has everything that you could require, the staff are polite and helpful, I can not fault it
