Calypso Hotel

TripAdvisor Review
Malta and Gozo, Europe
Marsalforn

Think picturesque; think Gozo. Malta's smaller, quieter sister island is an idyllic haven – unspoilt and full of character. You can almost imagine running out of your hotel in the morning and straight into the cool, clear waters of the sea. And, at the Calypso Hotel, you can do exactly that.

Many hotels make a lot of their 'sea-adjacent' location; but the Calypso Hotel really is on the water's edge. The gentle sounds of waves lapping against the shore will carry you off to sleep and the play of the sunlight glinting on the water will wake you in the morning.

The Calypso Hotel is an idyllic island retreat that comes with all mod cons:

Blending classic and contemporary design features, the Calypso Hotel is a beautiful base for any holiday. That it's situated on beautiful Gozo on the shores of the Mediterranean, makes it all the more special.

As you'd expect, the views from many of the hotel's twin rooms are dominated by that wide open expanse of blue sea. And wherever you are in the Calypso Hotel, you're never far from a stunning view. All rooms are tastefully furnished and benefit from a balcony or terrace. As well as direct dial phones and mini bars, tea/coffee facilities, rooms are equipped with colour TVs, but you'll probably be far too busy exploring the island or lounging on the sun terrace to switch it on much.

There's really so much to enjoy in and around the hotel. Gozo's shops and amenities are all within easy walking distance. And at the end of another sun-drenched day on land or in and around the sea, you'll return to the Calypso Hotel for a night of fine dining and entertainment.

With its spectacular coastline, its sandy beaches and its varied landscape, Gozo is truly idyllic. And after your stay at the Calypso Hotel, you may not want to go home. Still, there's always next year…

Beautiful views

Review by Lesalle Arundel, United Kingdom

Hotel Calypso is well situated on a pretty bay, lined with bars and restaurants. The hotel overlooks the bay at the front but backs onto an untidy Street area so best to upgrade to a front or side sea view if possible. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is fine and the restaurant is light and airy.
The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable...

The Aircon works and is adjustable. The bathrooms are a little dated and they need to supply rubber mats for the baths as they are very slippy when standing to shower. I would have preferred a walk-in shower and no bath. They charged a deposit for two very old thin and holey pool towels which was ridiculous as all the towels needed replacing. Apart from that, we enjoyed our stay and would return.

Needs a refurbishment.

Review by Sarah C Malta

It felt like we were at a 3 star hotel, and we only used the pool once during out stay as we were a bit grossed out. Good thing the hotel is right across the beach. The hotel definitely needs a refurbishment, although the staff were quite accomodating and lovely...

The restaurant and the food we got served took us back to the 90s.

2 star hotel

Review by DJC1882 Island of Malta, Malta

Lets start with the positive, staff were freindly and welcoming and hotel location is great. Given that this hotel is rated 4 star one would expect a 4 star hotel however it is more like a 2 star hotel with how the rooms and hotel are finished. Didnt even provide a bottle of water i the room so you spend 1.70eur from their vending machine and buy yourself...

The thing however which let this hotel down the most was the cleanliness. There was hair everywhere and even on the sheets :(

Spring visit.

Review by markn71 Loughborough, United Kingdom

We were part of an organised group visiting the two island of Gozo and Malta. This hotel was our base whilst on Gozo. The hotel is well located on the small harbour front. It’s decor is a little dated...

We were allocated what was called a garden room, but overlooked what can only be called an undeveloped wilderness. Whilst we were staying the rooftop bar was not open and unfortunately there was nowhere else that offered a comfortable area to sit, have a drink and chat. The restaurant served basic food and although we had been told that we didn’t have to sit as a group, the hotel made it very clear that we were expected to. Staff were friendly and in many cases helpful.

A few simple changes to facilities etc would have made this stay much more pleasant.
