End of another week!!! The countdown to Christmas has now begun and I'm very excited to go home and see everyone - it's going to be great. Only a few weeks until we leave!! Tomorrow we are going to Sliema to do some shopping and to do something on a Saturday like we used to do - lunch in a little cafe and a bit of browsing!! Should be good and we're looking forward to a relaxed ...
... but it seemed longer. I have to admit I was slightly frightened. I’m not sure if it was the cliffs, although the view was breathtaking, I felt so small and insignificant. Maybe it was everyone watching from the restaurants overlooking the bay thinking "what a loser, she can’t swim and she’s trying to snorkel". Irenka was very patient and started by holding both of my hands and made sure I was comfortable taking ...

The Catacombs of St. Paul was the biggest catacombs I have ever been in, it felt like it was never ending which was cool but a little creepy thinking that it used to be filled with ...
... healthy, massive portions! I never did get my strawberries and coffee at lunch, which I am still sad about, but mark my words... I will be on a hunt for both of those things tomorrow. So lets talk about the art, shall we? We spent the day in Valetta and visited St. John's Co-cathedral. It was beautiful and ornate and intricate. Much more overwhelming than even I expected. We got to see Caravaggio's paintings here on Malta and learn about his backstory a bit. He is ...
We stepped into a small part of paradise on Sunday afternoon. After a wild taxi ride from the airport to the ferry dock we arrived on the wee island of Gozo (pronounced goat-zo). Our landlady met us and brought us to our little apartment in Xlendi (shlendee) Bay. It is so nice to have our own kitchen and, though we're very fond of each other, our own bedrooms. All for the ridiculous cost of €50.00 a night. Our ...

Historical Traveler Reviews San Andrea Hotel Xlendi
I just came back from a weekend break at the Hotel San Andrea in Gozo and was very impressed with the value for money. The rooms are very clean and well kept and the views are exceptional. The staff is very welcoming and warm. A great experience.
Waiting for more then 9 hours at the ferry point due to stormy weather finally arrived
My husband and I have just returned from a weekend on our sister island Gozo and stayed at the San Andrea Hotel in Xlendi.
I've just returned form San Andrea Hotel in Xlendi in Gozo. The room was dark and dull too small for two persons, situated in the lowest corner almost at street level with no view whatsoever. We wanted a double room and instead got two singles put closely next to each other. The TV remote control they gave us didn't work. We had to ask the reception to change it. The second remote they gave us was binded together with rubber bands!! The bathroom left much to be desired. The shower did not work properly and the bath itself was full of stains and rust. Moreover, the lift was not working for the whole week of our stay we had to use the stairs. On the whole, if you book a room at this hotel during low season, it is no value for money. But I wouldn't suggest that you choose this accommodation if you're planning a holiday during high season. The restaurants of this hotel is a joke , dirty and dark. The food is of a very low quality and inedible served cold and very blunt. My suggestion avoid San Andrea if you are looking for a good hotel.
Very pleasant stay
We spent our 3 nights in Gozo @ San Andrea Hotel. Our room was small but clean and overlooked the lovely Xlendi bay. Staff was professional & rather friendly. Breakfast was just OK and we tried dinner once but didn't like the food although quite cheap
Nice stay overall
I was at a meeting in Gozo in january this year and I had the displeasure to stay at the San Andrea hotel in Xlendi. The general atmosphere was dismal, apart from a few smiles from some of the friendly staff at reception. The service at the restaurant was a joke, with one of the waiters stinking of alchohol. The food was tasteless and cold upon delivery and I wondered why there was never any people dining there. I complained to the management only to have Lida, the owner, rudely shout at me. I was disgusted at this rude treatment as a paying guest so I checked out and went to the very welcoming St.Patrick's hotel a few doors up. The manager of St.Patrick's sympathised with me about the way things were at San Andrea and indeed mentioned I was not the first to seek accomodation elsewhere. Apart from this unpleasant incident I thoroughly enjoyed Gozo. Andrew Wallace
San Andrea is still dirty. I have just returned form what was to be a wonderful holiday in Gozo but instead was a horrible stay. At 05.AM start the noises from the near by diving center by a huge compressor that fill the air in the cylinders. To make it worst all the windows look over the busy street of Xlendi, all night and all day cars never stop. We arrived very late after 12 hrs of traveling we were tiered, we were shown our room and as one expects we went straight to bed. As soon as we moved the bed sheets we noticed that they were not changed from the previous guests. I tried to call the reception from my room, but nobody answered the phone so I had to dress and go down to the reception. I complained that the sheets were smelly and not changed. I was told that at that time there were nobody who can change the sheets so I asked for a pair of clean sheets to change them myself. Arrogantly I was informed that at that time he could not replace the sheets .
We loved the week we spent in this hotel at beginning of this month.
We went round all the main hotels in Gozo such as Mgarr hotel, The Grand, St. Patrick, Hotel Calypso before we decided where to stay. We even thought we would stay a few days in one hotel and then move on to another. But once we had a good look at all of them, San Andrea was our favourite.We liked San Andrea and we stayed there all week because it was spotless, very clean and fresh. The staff were very polite and friendly too. It is situated in the best position possible.
I would recommend the hotel to anyone.
Worning to avoidt San Andrea
Recently visited the island of Gozo with my friend who booked with a travel agent to San Andrea Hotel in a small bay call Xlendy. The beach is beautiful and quiet. But unfortunatlly the San Andrea is awfull, the rooms are very small and cleaning is minimum. Breakfast is uneatable and served very basic in a dirty athmosphere. So dirty that on the second day we refused breakfast and went elsewhere to have some coffee. I worn everybody visiting Gozo not to book in this dirty hotel because it is a health threath to anyone staying in San Andrea Hotel. I made a full report to the tourist office to Mr Letvik Get to take action but till now I heard nothing. My friend had asked from where he booked for a full refund.
Flee, dirty hotel, with rooms the size of a rabbit hutch. This is my discribtion of San Andrea Hotel in Gozo. Restaurant kitchen so dirty that all guests were suffering form diarrhea including my self spent all holiday in the toilet. I complained to Mr Paul Scicluna the owner of San Andrea who was so arrogant and I checked out on the same day. I went to a nearby hotel very statisfied with the sevice that I stood in this hotel called Patrick Hotel. The people told me that it was not the first one hat I checked out of San Andrea Many others left this flee hotel all complainting of dirth, bad service and terrible food. There are many reports against San Andrea at the Xlendi Tourist office managed by Ludwin Gat. I was told by the locals that Gat never took action against the owner because he get free meals. I have reported all my complaints to my tour operator and I got all my money back and was told that my tour operator is quitting from San Andrea due to many complaints against this hotel.
