Hotel Calypso - Gozo

3 stars

Malta, Gozo and Comino, Mediterranean

The Hotel Calypso on the northern coast of Gozo is centrally located minutes from the scuba diving centre. Overlooking Malsaforn Bay, the Calypso features a roof top swimming pool with sun deck and cocktail bar.

Located on the north shore of Gozo, only a short ferry ride away from Malta is the relaxing Hotel Calypso. Being right on the sea front creates amazing views of the Mediterranean Sea and great opportunities to explore the fishing bay of Marsalforn and Xaghra Hill. The hotel lies approximately 6 miles from the Ferry Terminal with connections to Malta, which takes approximately 15 minute drive.

The hotel holds 100 inland, sea or bay view rooms including 96 twin or double rooms, 3 junior suites and 1 presidential suite. Every room comes equipped with air conditioning, an en suite bathroom and a balcony or terrace. The interior of the rooms is classic with nautical touches and comes with free wifi access.

Between the main buffet restaurant La Peria and the rooftop A la Carte restaurant Luce D’Oro, the hotel serves both local and international meals. However, the Sunset Bar is the place to go in the summer months to enjoy a cocktail and drink by the pool. The hotel is in the perfect location to enjoy activities such as horse riding, sea kayaking, wine tours, climbing and abseiling when not scuba diving.

The diving centre is location just a few minutes walk from the hotel.

Our Opinion
Good quality, modern hotel in a great, harbour front location. Small dive centre offering a personal service just across the road. Quieter than Malta, with a local feel.
