Nice clean apartment with good mattresses and bedding
We had a pleasant week, although the weather was colder than usual for the time of year, offset by the beautiful spring flowers!
We stayed for three weeks in January/February and enjoyed all of our time there. The first impression on entering the apartment was how spacious it was, there was only two of us but for those travelling with a family it would be ideal. Everything was clean and tidy and contained all the equipment needed for a self catering holiday. The TV and radio did not receive any English speaking channels but the wifi connection was good and so these can be accessed on a tablet or other device.
The location is great, being in a village that is not too "touristy" yet has all the facilities in the shape of good restaurants within five minutes walk, bus stop two minutes walk, parking right outside. It was good to see the bats arriving at 5.15 every evening and flying over the orange trees in the gardens over the road, as well as various species of birds in the same area. Views over the sea were always interesting when viewed from the front balcony.
Good walks are to be had right from the apartment, especially over the coastal paths.
We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to experience a residential type stay, away from the holiday type blocks.
Very spacious and comfortable apartment which is well equipped and conveniently located
We stayed in the apartment for one week and found it ideal for our purposes. We had not hired a car, but found the buses extremely convenient for getting around Gozo. We enjoyed numerous fascinating walks along different parts of the Gozo coastline and were amazed at the variety of the scenery. Within Qala itself, there were suitable grocery stores that were adequate for buying a range of provisions, and of course plenty of restaurants for eating out.
The apartment was very spacious and comfortable with everything that we needed. We enjoyed sitting on the front balcony, looking over to Comino and Malta in the distance, and watching the spotted flycatchers and other birds flitting among the orange and lemon trees in the gardens below.
The only downside was that the internet was slow, making it impossible for me to access work emails via my laptop, although the wifi on my phone was fine and local websites could be accessed easily. There was also no English news channel on the TV - a disappointment when so many critical things were happening in the world.
All in all, though, these were minor details and we can thoroughly recommend the apartment for a comfortable and relaxing stay on Gozo.
Hi Andrew & Helen,
Thank you for your feedback, especially regards the Wi Fi. We have had a technician call out to check the service. He found an external fault which has now been rectified. Emails are working perfectly now :-).
Once again we sincerely thank you for your feedback, without out your valuable feedback things like this can not be rectified. It was a pleasure having you stay at 'Comino Views' and hope to hear from you in the near future.

Winter Week in Gozo and Qala
It all started with a nice email conversation with Gemma & Andrew. When we in the evening arrived at the apartment we were met by Sylvana . A friendly and pleasant acquaintance who showed us the apartment, which are large and nice with a great view.
We experienced as normal a really nice week in Gozo and especially in Qala , although in January the nights were a little cool. Kent & Gunilla.
Holiday in Gozo.
It was refreshing to get up in the morning and look at the beautiful views of Comino from our balcony. The apartment is spacious and fully furnished and very clean and tidy. I recommend this apartment to anyone who's looking to stay in Qala or Gozo, for that matter.
Home from Home
