Just returned from Molyvos and stayed in the Marilenas, please see a list of positives and negatives.
Positives - Molyvos utterley charming, pretty, uncommercialised and typically greek. Absolutley stunning harbour, pretty houses, fantastic sunsets- perfect. Restaurants all on a par with each other but really enjoyed the Sea Horse, Captains Table and Tropicana.
Marilenas pool - lovely.
Negatives- 25 minutes to supermarket and another 10 minutes into town/ nearest taverna. A courtesy bus is provided however the times are not always compatible for a holiday maker ( last bus being 10 p.m).
The proprieter has major issues with holiday makers ( she doesn't like them) and is not very approachable. Not the usual lovely greek hospitality that we are used to. (not even a welcome drink just a grimace)
The apartments very very basic, self catering facilities limited (I suspect this is so that folk use the hotels bar and restaurant).
We are not normally people to moan and we still had a lovely holiday, the town of Molyvos far out weighed the negatives of Marilenas Hotel. Luckily we landed on a week where we met some lovely people, the weather was fantastic and we managed to bag one of the the best rooms with a view. Try to request rooms 130 to 137 if you can they are the best views by far. The hostess is sat on a goldmine and comes across as if she is not bothered/of little interest. Such a shame. We will almost certainly go back to Molyvos but we will give Marilenas a miss.
