How to Get There
We have just returned from a week in Gozo. We were here for the second year and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. The weather was hot most of the week and there was a lovely breeze to cool us down. The rooms are spacious and comfy. The beds are enormous and extremely comfortable. The shower was large and water lovely and hot and abundant. There are white towelling robes in the room but if you require larger sizes you may have to ask at reception. The sun loungers are wooden with mattresses and there is shade from umbrellas or a few covered areas. The staff are very welcoming and attentive and do attempt to make everything special. Breakfast was lovely being outside every day. If you felt cold tables were available inside. The breakfast choice was large. However I would suggest that there was a variety of different choices of pastries, fruits, rolls, breads, daily as after a week it can become monotonous. The drinks are quite pricey but there are a couple of happy hours with a limited menu cheaper. The restaurants are all very enjoyable with different menus at each. There was an incident with some noisy guests late one night and the ladies in red at reception were great in dealing with the complaints in the morning and compensation. There is a craft market within walking distance near the hotel and well worth a visit for local goods.We would definitely reccommend this hotel for a relaxing break.
Usuall i start with the positive then give the blow dwn comments.
This time I would like to start with the less positive
This is he breakfast which offers cheaper cold cuts traditional cheper local sweets and savoury pastries but offers less of a 5 * level food.
also coffe is served and you have to ask for it and you get tht only once.
Rooms are fantastic
Front desk service is excellent if not exceptional.
Indoor poolis very good.
Outdoor pool also except for the number of dad birds on the pam island.
We had a great stay recently at the Kempinski San Lawrenz. The staff were friendly, courteous & helpful. The facilities at the hotel are very good - spacious rooms with balcony, large pool, spa, gym & tennis courts. Bikes are also available to rent for €13 per day, although it was too hot for cycling whilst we were there. Breakfasts were memorable out on the terrace. The hotel is in a quiet location and has a very relaxed feel. There are a number of reasonable restaurants within easy walking distance. The walk down to the inland sea/blue pool/site of azure window is about 30 minutes - nice stroll downhill but harder work on the way back! We arranged for some diving through the handy on-site facilities.
The drinks and the on-site restaurants are expensive - we only ate in the hotel for breakfast (which was very good), so cannot comment on the quality of the food served in the hotel restaurants.
The only other point to mention is that the beds have memory-foam mattresses - which did not suit our backs.
Overall, an excellent place to stay in Gozo.
Kempinski Hotel was a joy from arrival to departure. Staff were so polite and helpful. Huge child-free pool( 1 of 3 )with plenty of sun beds. Rooms were huge, with Yay! Tea/Coffee making facilities and balcony overlooking the pool was a refreshing site. The maid service in the rooms discreet and turn down service special.
The food was delicious, so well prepared , fresh and a good range on offer! Breakfast was wide ranging with a great selection of buffet and food to order at no extra cost.
Poolside drinks were rather expensive -especially the water, so bring lots! The ice cream is hotel made and delicious but very small scoops for 3Eur each.
Hotel arranged a seamless collection from the airport for us and as we had an early flight were grateful for their arranging easy taxi to sync with ferry ...taxi was waiting for us as we left ferry...a breakfast in a bag was also provided for us as we would miss breakfast and also hot coffee whilst we waited at 4.15am for collection- that was very special and a credit to the solicitousness of the staff.
It is about as far west as you can get in Gozo (and with not a lot to do in Gozo )so it really is a Resort destination with the most incredible Spa I have ever experienced ...the other one was in Jordan!The weather was so good about 27-29 in early June but the breezes kept one cool by the pool.
I'D GO BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN !
We had a week at the Kempinski on Gozo followed by 3 nights in Valletta back in September ... the Kempinski is a purpose built resort hotel in a fairly isolated part of Gozo and is a perfect spot to catch the sun, enjoy good food , and do not very much ( in truth there isn't a lot on Gozo but it has a sort of hot , dusty, old-fashioned charm) . The hotel is in local stone and well laid out across a large site ... spacious. Our room was on the 4th floor if I recall and next to the lift shaft and so of a slightly different configuration to most which are deeper from corridor to balcony whilst ours was more longways parallel to the corridor and not so deep . Rooms a little soul-less I would say.. more business hotel than cosy. Good bathroom... Nice cool and classy public areas around reception and on to the main bar and its terrace. The place never felt crowded and the staff were attentive and well trained in all areas. The food was good , the pool was nice and cooling in the hot and quite humid September weather. Some heavy rain on our second day ( the first for months apparently) showed the hotel to be not quite watertight ... cue some buckets in corridors , towels on the floor.... soon dried up however. Bus stop at the end of road takes you West to the no longer standing Azure Window, or East to the capital Victoria. Kempinski ladies in red ( concierges ) were very efficient and professional , top marks. Its not a cheap hotel , but is of a high standard and well run...4 and a half blobs overall. For transfers , get the hotel to arrange it and pay the slightly higher charge ..we made the mistake of picking a bit of a cowboy crowd from the web.
