Stayed here for 1 week in May. Long ride from airport, lovely views but hairpin bends so not good if a poor traveller. Hotel is on hillside so some of the rooms are down a lot of steps and paths, we were lucky as we were at the top same level as the bar and pool. The rooms have been refurbished and it was clean and modern but the bathroom could have been better although the shower was handheld it was modern and always plenty of hot water. We were as most people on all inclusive but be warned the drinks part of the package is only beer, wine and oozo also soft drinks, and you can only have it until 10.30pm and then you have to pay and it is expensive!! The bar and seating area are modern, as is the pool area although there are only about 30 sun beds, as the hotel was not full it was not a problem. The staff at the hotel are all very friendly and if you need anything you only have to ask.
The food was not bad, for breakfast there was a good variety, cereal, ham, cheese, tomato,hot boiled eggs, scambled eggs, yogurt, honey, lovely fresh bread to cut , jams and also a toaster. Lunch and Dinner were were similar Great greek salad with fete cheese and separate tomatoes cucumber ,beans ,mayonasses, beetroot, and again fresh bread to cut, on the hot side greek type stew, cheese pie , different vegetable dishes, and the chef there to do stir fry and to tell you what he had to offer each day. I will say we had moussaka twice while we were there and it was the best I have ever tasted. On a friday evening they have a greek night but you have to pay . We didn't but we could watch the greek dancing and join in those that had paid got a slight different meals but not 10euros worth. It is about 35 mins walk in to molyvos and it is a pretty place with lots of tavernas and also a pretty harbour with more tavernas. The courtesy bus runs so far into town 4 times a day. The local buses were not running until our last day so we went to Petra which is small but flat and pretty gave our legs a rest.
This hotel and Molyvos are not suitable for anybody with walking difficulties as it is very hilly to say the least. All in all we had a great week with good company and the weather was perfect.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Belvedere hotel ex- Aeolis is in a great spot if you want to get Away from it all without being out on a limb. Built into a hillside overlooking the sea, it’s in a quiet position just outside Molyvos – but it’s only a ten-minute walk from the town centre. The hotel suns a twice –daily courtesy bus into town, as well. Plus, you’ve got a beach a few minutes’ walk away.The pool makes the most of the hotel’s location. Positioned at the back of the main building, it’s surrounded by teak decking and likes straight out over the countryside and sea. Wooden sunloungers and parasols line the water and there’s a whirlpool bath for some post-swim pampering. And if you want to burn off some energy, you’ve got an open-air gym tucked behind the pool.Inside, everywhere feels shiny and new thanks to a recent Facelift.Big windows usher in the light and flocked salon chairs, leather sofas and gleaming marble floors take pride of place in the public rooms. The restaurant is a case in point. Approached down a sweeping marble staircase, it’s spacious and light with a grandiose feel. You can enjoy the American-style buffet breakfast here and head for the hotel’s on-site taverna for lunches and dinners.As for the rooms, they’re bungalow-style affairs tiered into the hillside. Recently refitted, there’re smart and clean, with faux leather headboards, ceramic floors and stylish peach and coffee colour schemes.
