San Andrea Hotel
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Xlendi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 March 2012

Xlendi Bay is a magical location and the San Andrea Hotel is its star. The hotel is family-run and all the staff are friendly and helpful. Every request I made was dealt with quickly and efficiently. As other reviewers have said, a sea-view room is a must and the food and Gozitan/Maltese wine in Zaffiro Restaurant are of excellent quality and really good value for money. (14 euros for three courses if you are resident in the hotel.) If you want to eat out, there are some other good restaurants just a few paces away.......... Gozo is a small island, has a good bus service and a weekly ticket only costs 12 euros, so there is no real need to hire a car.

We were here for a few days in November. Yes, as other reviewers have said, you MUST have a sea view room if you possibly can. The others overlook a road and you'd miss half the point of the place - and hear cars instead of the sea. The rooms were small but smart and clean and well designed. The staff were friendly and helpful. I think all the rooms have balconies and sitting on ours to watch the sun go down over the water was lovely. Breakfast was good with a reasonable selection of food for all tastes. We went half board and the evening meals were fine though not amazing. The worst thing (for me) was the evening music in the restaurant every night - a radio station specialising in some sort of electronic dance/trance music. This seemed an odd choice for a dining room with mostly middle aged assorted Europeans and fought against the warm and welcoming atmosphere that they were trying to achieve. Xlendi was extremely quiet at that time of year - finding somewhere outside the hotel (other than the hotel next door) for a drink after dinner was impossible except for our last, Friday, night. The only shop in the village was only open in the mornings. But Xlendi is a nice place - though almost spoiled by some overbuilding on the hill side, most of which appears to be unoccupied. And be warned about Xlendi village square car park. You will see that most cars are parked under the palm trees and perhaps, like us, make for where there's more space under the other trees (not being a botanist I will just say 'ordinary' trees with leaves). That evening, I was aware of the huge number of birds who gathered in the village square and it was lovely listening to their song and watching them swoop about. We spent the next few days getting the bird droppings off the hired car as they had all roosted in the leafy trees. After that we parked under the palms.

In Gozo for a couple of days recently and stayed here - it ticked all the boxes: lovely staff, great shower, comfortable, well-sized bed, spotless and then there's that sea-view of Xlendi bay and the sound of the waves which are the perfect wake-up call.

Room Tip: Sea-view all the way - the non-sea-view rooms just look over a nondescript street.

This is an excellent small hotel, ideal for a short break which we spent walking Gozo.The staff are most friendly and efficient and the rooms though small are very well furnished. Beautiful view right on the Mediterranean from rooms with sea view. Sound of the sea soothing. The food on the Table d'hote was very good and the value overall excellent. Above all efficient and friendly staff. No complaints at all!

We stayed 4 nights in early October. The hotel is faultlessly clean, the staff most attentive and the food superbly cooked.

Pay the extra for a sea view and you have the best view in town.
