We really enjoyed our one week staying here. A very nice place with sea view. It was the last week of the season, but the staff was very nice and the room was excellent cleaned and the restaurant offered everything, just like in the full season. Probably middle September is the best time to be there. I suppose the July... More

First of all, smiley and very kind stuff at reception. Hotel is very clean, big with many different facilities. I liked spa center, pool with hydro massage and jacuzzi, with fantastic view. For sure we will come again.

I enjoyed my vacation at Viva Mare Hotel at the begging of July.Breathtaking view with lovely sunsets. Excellent breakfast and prompt service by the entire personell. Extremely tasty a la carte dishes. I had a very pleasant experience changing pools every day. The wellness pool stole my heart and tuned my mood daily. All things considered, my choice of VIVA...

Stayed there for just a couple of days. The savoury breakfast was delicious (unlike the sweet bits), the spa was real fun if you are easily amused and admission is just 5 Euros per person. The sea view is great and the surroundings just fine. The staff were helpful BUT they spoke to us in singular while they should speak... More

Very nice hotel with great view by the sea. Excellent pools and as a bonus great play areas for children. Hotel is located slightly outside of Molivos but it is quiet and relaxing and you can easily get in to the town either with hotel minibus (4 times/day), local bus or by taxi (5€). Hotel staff is very friendly and... More

A wonderful choice, worth its money! With a variety of pools to switch among and nice gardens. Polite staff, doing their best to serve you at any time. A clean and neat room, with a wonderful sea view. Three minutes from Molyvos, but at the same time a quiet and romantic place onto the seafront, away from noisy situations. A... More

The hotel, when we booked advertised a 4* rating offering an evening buffet. This is no longer. As half board we were offered a pathetic choice of 3 meats or 2 meats & 1 fish depending on the day, with this you can have chips, saute or boiled potatoes or rice or pasta. The rice I had 1 day had... More

We stayed there at end of September 2013, for 8 days and we absolutely loved it. First of all, the location and the view the rooms get is spectacular. Molyvos is located on the north side of the Island and boasts a excavated and restored ancient fortress and a beautiful beach. The Town of Molyvos is beautifully lit at night... More

We had a great week here. The location is superb looking across the strait to Turkey, and the pools are excellent - it felt like a mini-aqualand but without the crowds! They have a decent shuttle bus into the local town which is a real delight - but we liked the tranquility of the location too The beach is small... More

Let's start with Molyvos (Mithyimna) - what a true gem on a greek island, totally unspoilt and showing visitors traditional greek styling. Sunsets we can only dream about, lovely friendly island people who genuinely want to make you feel welcome on their island. The Hotel The Alkaios is set on a hill approximately 2kms from Molyvos. A small, family owned... More
