Cornucopia Hotel, Gozo

Cornucopia Hotel Sunbathing Area

The family run 4 star Cornucopia Hotel is located on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Xaghra.  The hotel has fantastic views over the Imrik valley out to Victoria and down to the sea at Marsalform.  Xaghra, as well as being a traditional Gozitan village, has some of the best archeological sites on Gozo, particularly the Ggantija Temples.  It is also very handy for Ramla Bay and Calypso Cave.  Being centrally placed on Gozo, the Cornucopia Hotel is less than 15 minutes by car from  virtually anywhere on the island.

Converted from a traditional farm house, the four star Cornucopia Hotel has 48 rooms.  The bar and lounge area are over 300 years old, and the decor of the hotel is in keeping with its history, being traditionally Gozitan.  It is worth staying in the Cornucopia Hotel for the grounds alone.  Two freshwater pools, a whirlpool and a children's pool are set amongst beautifully tended gardens and terraces.  The ideal spot to relax after some gentle exploring of the surrounding sites.

Cornucopia Hotel Accommodation

Cornucopia Hotel: Standard Double Room

In keeping with the rest of the Cornucopia Hotel, the decor of the rooms is in traditional Gozitan rustic style, with natural wood furniture and tiled floors.  However this does not  mean they are not well equipped.  The standard rooms come complete with en suite bathroom, air conditioning/central heating, ceiling fan, cable television, minibar (charged separately), hair dryer, trouser press and direct dial telephone.  They are available as doubles or twins and each has its own balcony or terrace.

Cornucopia Hotel Bars and Restaurants

Cornucopia Hotel: Arched Restaurant

 A combination of vaulted ceiling and candlelight makes for romantic dining in the Cornucopia Hotel's Restaurant.  

A buffet breakfast is served in the morning.  For lunch, the restaurant serves a special snack menu.  Snacks can also be obtained outside by the pool.  Either à la carte or Table D'Hôte menus are served for lunch, with a choice of a variety of local and international cooking.

From June to September, there is a weekly poolside barbecue (twice a week in August).  This consists of an all you can eat buffet.  This is accompanied by live music and dancing.  In the cooler months this is replace by the very popular 'Friday Carvery', which is also an all you can eat buffet, with the barbecued dishes being replaced by various roasted joints.  Again, live music is provided.

The rustic lounge bar is a great place for an aperitif or a night cap.
