“Very nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Have stayed at Molos two times before and will return this summer.
Perfectly located on the beach in the quaint and sleepy Kissamoss, short distance to great places Fallesarna, Ellafonissi and Balos.
It offers a quiet and relaxed atmosphere with large clean rooms and suits everyone. Very friendly staffs that always are helpful with whatever it may be.

Room Tip: The hotel is built in 2009 and all room's are large and nice.

We stayed at this hotel for about one week in July 2012.
The hotel is well situated on a nice beach, protected from the wind. We had a nice and spacious apartment with sea view and terrace.
The beach is located in a small lagoon, equipped with free sun-beds for guests of the hotel and suitable for children.
The apartment was bright and had two rooms, both of them with access to the terrace. The sea view was very beautiful.
The constant sea breeze contributed to making our stay very enjoyable as we never suffered from heat.
The staff was polite and helpful. The service was good and so was the quality of the breakfast. Our room was cleaned every day. The quality of the mattress and bed linen was good.
Close to Kissamos there are also very beautiful beaches, which can be reached with excursions.
The only minus is that the parking was not protected and we had our gas stolen from our rented car during the night. Other cars had also their gas stolen from their tanks during the night. We understand this is a problem the entire area of Kissamos has experienced recently and in the past.

Room Tip: The rooms with sea views are probably the best in the hotel as the view is very beautiful and they a...

We arrived late in the night and we found that the hotel had prepared for us a late dinner in the room . The room we had 109 was directly on the pool and had a sea side view it was very convenient for me and my son . The beach was very near just few steps away and everything was for free ( sun beds , umbrellas ) and we had also service on the beach we could order our drinks and even our lunch , very good service and the staff was very helpful . In the night we had our dinner at the restaurant very good variety and quality and also a very good service . The manager was always asking us if everything was ok and if we needed anything very professional . This hotel has that special friendly atmosphere, so everybody feels there like at home. Also necessary to say, that this place is very good for parents with little children - it's very clean, safe and comfortable, the staff take care about babies like they are their own children:) All that kindness and care made us feel like in fairy tale, we had wonderful rest. And now we can recommend this place for other travelers without any hesitation.

This was my first visit to the sea. And i'm happy, that my family chose this hotel. First of all i want to say that the sea is very close to the hotel - so, every morning i had my tasty breakfast and ran to the beach with sand and limpid water. Everything and everybody in Molos bay was very child friendly, so i had my lunch right out at the beach. We had very big room with our personal kitchen, so, my mom could make me my usual food. But i preferred very tasty dinners in restaurant. And my friend, bartender Manolis even made me my first cocktail in my life! It was very tasty and nice. There i also met my new friends from different countries, together we were swimming at our kiddie pool and having a lot of fun! I felt like home, because everybody loved me and took care of me, like i was part of big greek family. I like this place very much and hope, that will visit it next year.

It was the most wonderfull vacation i've ever had. First i'd like to start from the very first impression which makes the reception. I was met by a very pleasant and i have to say this a very beautiful young woman who speeks perfect english and was really kind, attentive and professional.

The second impression made the room. Wow! I liked it so much!!! The perfect sea view, very comfortable, clean, modern furniched. Nice bathrom, big table for 4- 5 persons, TV, AC, all the things you need!

Now speaking abt the restaurant.

Food - i liked it much, thanks chef for the delicios cuicine. It was tasty, well done, every nation could have their lovely food and also try the greek ones. As for me i liked mostly the Creeten night when it was organised a barbeque party.

The stuff in the restaurant is very polite, speaks languages, very friendly. Even coming alone I felt that i'm cared. You could have your br, lunch and dinner in the restaurant and also at the open terrase, that is very pleasant especialy in the warm greek evenings and nights.

Jumping on the beach: veerrrryyyy close to the hotel! Its important thing for me, that's why i'm telling that i was reaaly happy to appear in the water in 2 minutes after leaving my room! its send, enough beach chair and a very nice waitor Nektarious, he will brink you drinks always smiling). Thanks him for a lovely fredo capuccino).

There is no animation in the hotel, but i wanted calm vacation so i liked the atmosphere of Molos Bay. It was once during the week they invited greek musicians and dansers so it was nice to listen to the music and dance sirtaki. Wish it will be more often in the future in the hotel.

So, i can say that i liked everything there. Want to say big thanks to the manager of the Hotel Mr Robert, who was always taking care about all the guests and me personally, so all your questions was unswered and all needs satisfied. I wish to come there again and hug all the people who made this nice job of my holliday. I'm happy visited Greece!)

We chose the Molos Bay Hotel as it looked the best of the few we could find in the West of Crete which had rooms big enough for a family of four (mum, dad, kids 11 & 8). We were not sure what to expect as the reviews we had read varied from excellent to awful. However we were very pleasantly surprised at what we found. We had booked a Junior Suite to accommodate the four of us and were impressed how spacious and clean it was. It had a big double bedroom with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space and big sliding doors onto the balcony (and a flat screen TV). The full bathroom was smallish but perfectly adequate and the living area was huge with two double sofa beds, coffee table and table and chairs and another big sliding door onto the balcony ( and another flat screen TV!). A useful addition to the living area was a 'kitchenette cupboard' with a roll up door that revealed a kitchen sink, small worktop and kettle and full size under-counter fridge with freezer compartment. This was vey helpful for making picnic lunches as the hotel was half-board.
The Balcony was over 10 meters long and ran the full length of the suite, looking over the pool and the sea, so plenty of room for sitting out, storing lilos and drying towels and swimsuits.
The suite was cleaned every day, usually whilst we were at breakfast, so no inconvenience and plenty of fresh towels provided. Half-board provided us with breakfast and dinner, both buffet style but there was always a good choice of quality food and plenty of it. Only issue we had was that dinner did not start until 8.00pm which was a bit later than the kids would normally eat but we quickly adapted.
The public areas of the hotel were spotless and the staff always friendly and helpful, particularly the receptionist with her advice about travelling to local attractions. The pool was very clean although could do with a few more sunbeds but the there were always enough well maintained sun beds and sunbrellas on the beach which was just a gently slope away at the end of the lawn. The beach itself was perfect in that it had clean sand, a shallow lagoon for tiddlers, some wave actions for stronger swimmers and some interesting rocks for snorklers. If there was any restrictions to use of the sun beds by non residents it was handled very discreetly and credit to the hotel bar staff who trudged up and down to the beach all day serving drinks from the bar.
The hotel has no programme of integral entertainment although the manager did organize a Cretan night on our first weekend with a Cretan BBQ, traditionally dancers and a band which was a nice surprise. However the hotel is just a short walk from the main highway and slightly longer stroll into central Kissamos but definitely at the nicer end of the town and beach.
For us it was just right - very well situated, clean, quiet and comfortable base from which to explore the west of Crete and I would not hesitate to return to the Molos Bay. Our thanks to the manager and staff for making our stay so pleasant.

Molos Bay Hotel Kissamos - Crete: The hotel is a real 4 stars and even better. All was above expectations. Rooms are big, clean comfortable, quiet. The beach is in front of the hotel. The water is clean. For the first meters is shallow and is safe for children. The facilities at the beach (umbrella, beds and towel) are included in the room price like many other services like the safe, satellite TV and wifi. The swimming pool is also very nice. All you need is available to make your vacation excellent for the best relax and comfort without unexpected hidden costs. The food is also excellent with a large and quality choice both for cold and warm dishes and dessert. Most of the food is typical of Crete/Greece, but you find also more continental/international type of dishes. Large is the choice also for breakfast. The yogurt is really unforgettable. All product are really fresh and cooked by experienced cooks. The hospitality is above any other hotel/resort I have visited in more than 30 years. The personnel is always available to make your vacation the best. The Hotel Manager is indeed doing an excellent work. Special evenings are organized like the Cretan evening that was a very nice opportunity to taste Cretan food and experience typical music and dances. The hotel is also very nice located to 5 min walking distance to the center Kissamos village with its shops and restaurants. It is also favorably located to reach in 20 min by car the beautiful Falasarna beach and within an hour the Balos beach (one of the most beautiful pristine in all Greece). Elafonisi beach (also one of the most beautiful) is a perfect destination for a day trip. Highly recommended to everybody for a perfect relaxing comfortable vacation or also for team building.

Room Tip: Take direct contact with the hotel or better with the Hotel Manager to find together the solution th...
