“AMAZING VIEWS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014

Stayed here in end of May 2014 in a family apartment for 5 days. Wonderful views from the balcony across the bay to Batsi harbour, which is 10 mins casual stroll away. The hotel is clean and well kept and Maro is attentive without being obtrusive. She arranged complimentary transfers from & to the port and Jeep hire (4X4 needed if you visit Zorkos beach) to tour the island which is a must do! There are many beautiful beaches, coastal and inland villages to explore, with very bendy, twisty, up and down roads.

The harbour has some nice restaurants and a couple of mini supermarkets, with a larger main supermarket about 15 - 20 mins walk away on the main road.

The breakfast is varied and plentiful and any additional requests readily covered.
Whilst we were staying the hotel was not fully occupied as it was early in the season and had mainly German elderly retired couples staying with a few English.

I can understand comments made in other reviews questioning why the pool was closed during the afternoon which seemed unusual but I know it was to cover the siesta time, so that people did not get disturbed. This is easily resolved by visiting the main beach, down approximately 80 steps accessed from the quiet road next to the hotels underground car park as well as a small sandy beach 5 mins in the opposite direction set in a small cove.

The hotel is nicely maintained, despite what other reviews state and when we had a problem with the door lock on our apartment it was sorted out the same morning! There was a handyman in attendance some days doing general repair work and decorating so I can't understand the negative comments made in other reviews!

Take a torch with you for walking back from the harbour at night-time as the steps leading up from the beach to the hotel are dimly lit.

Room Tip: Take a torch for walking back from the harbour in the evening/night as the road and steps up from th...

This hotel was a really good choice, nice and clean, friendly and service minded staff, great breakfast with good variety. Brilliant view from the balcony of the Batsi village. Clean pool and just a few stairs to a good beach. Close to the tavernas of the village.

Room Tip: Pick a room with sea view - well worth the money

This review is long overdue. My husband and I were married at the Mare Vista. We had family and friends attending from all over the globe and they accommodated us all. The staff was like a family to us. They helped me plan every detail of the ceremony and made the day absolutely perfect for us, decorating and arranging the area like something from a story book.
They went out of their way to make sure all our 15 guests were well taken care at all times. The rooms were spotlessly clean and cared for and the views from each balcony were breathtaking. The breakfast each morning was laden with fresh choices and made to order eggs. We ate in the resultant numerous times without ever a disappointment.
I can not say enough about how wonderful the hotel and staff were to us. I would highly recommend the Mare Vista to anyone who is visiting Andros. Thank you!!!

Room Tip: All rooms have amazing views. The rooms are large and spacious enough for children to share.

My husband and I have just returned from another glorious holiday on the quiet island of Andros, Greece. For the 3rd time we stayed at the Mare e Vista hotel and once again were delighted we did. The hotel offers a good standard of accommodation in its Vista Suite. Air conditioned bedroom, which was quiet in operation and certainly needed throughout the night. Small, but well equipped kitchen, sufficient to prepare a good breakfast which we enjoyed on the ample sized balcony (however, some shade would have been appreciated against the early sun). There is also a good sized living area with plenty of soft seating and a good sized bathroom with a bath, shower curtain, but once again the shower head is not complete with bracket to allow for a standing shower, this seems to be typical of many Greek hotels. But there was plenty of hot water and the flow was strong. The hotel offers one of the best views across Batsi port from your balcony, and our favourite times of day were sitting on the balcony with either a post beach coffee or a late night Ouzo watching the rest of Batsi go about its sleepy business. Just one word of caution, there are some pretty steep steps to reach the hotel from the port, so not the best location for anyone who finds walking difficult. We did spend a few hours around the pool, but we much prefer to walk to a beach, of which there are plenty, including the town beach just down the steps. The beaches are great for children as they slope very gently. Andros is a perfect island for anyone who loves the Greece of 30 years ago, it is unspoilt and still very Greek, mainly because to get there does require some effort, a plane journey into Athens followed by a 2 hour ferry ride from Rafina to Gavrion, but well worth the effort. Once there you will find plenty of great restaurants/tavernas, many of which have been there for years. We are both vegetarian and by week 2 we were tiring of the menus. The staff at the Mare e Vista and wonderfully helpful and we will certainly be returning in 2015.

Room Tip: Ask for a Vista Suite, B9 is a great choice, quiet and with a great view

My husband and I stayed 3 nights and we were very pleased with the hotel. The location, pool and overall decor were great. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable with the added items such as a kettle and fridge which you don't readily find in Europe. Also a good shower which is always important. The staff were exceptional and attentive.

Overall,our stay at the hotel could be described as far more than pleasant!The bedroom,the decoration,the clean spaces,the balcony and its breathtaking view,the helpful staff together with the delicious breakfast made our weekend unforgettable!The only thing that could be improved is the bathroom..In my opinion it should be redecorated so as to be in accordance with the minimal styling of the room.All in all it's an excellent choice especially for someone that wants to enjoy the serenity and the harmony of the island.
