This is a great hotel, however lack of wifi do make it hard sometimes. Staff and owner is a very friendly and nice person, and so is the rest of the staff! They are willing to help in any situations. I will recomend their appartments, and this can easily be a great family hotel. The food section was closed for the winter, but I bet it hold a great standard.

Will sure be back!

We have been here over the summer and er had a great time. The owners are very Nice en helpfull people and they are always working to make Your stay as Nice as possible. They are great with the kids (not that we have any but we saw how they treated them). The owners were truely sorry to see the guests go after their stay. We felt so welcome. The food was okay and the pool was very Nice. Maybe some day they can replace the beds at the pool? But overall we had a lovely stay and we would defenately go there again!

Another recent reviewer made the comment that he and his party where booked to stay at the Marianthi just down the road from the Marilena butt he former was overbooked - strange, that also happened to us to! But also, like the said fellow reviewer, we enjoyed the stay at the Marilena. The rooms were basic but very clean (maid went in every day) and the bedding was changed frequently in our 12 day stay.
We had one of the rooms facing the front of the property with a good sized balcony that we could sit on and enjoy the views of the illuminated castle during the evenings.
The pool looked very good with more than an adequate number of sun loungers and we saw the water quality being checked most days as well as it being cleaned.
We were there on a self catering basis so the facilities were, again, basic, but totally adequate. We ate in the main hotel on several occasions and, although it wasn't cordon bleu, it was enjoyable if standard fare but the quantity was good.
The only evening entertainment that we experienced there was a 'Greek night' when one of the proprietors indulged in some local dancing to traditional music.
The location is a little distance from the town of Molivos and may put some people off, it is about 2 miles, as the walk back at night might be too much especially if the local hospitality has proved to be very enjoyable. The taxi fares though are very reasonable and the hotel do lay on a free mini bus service at cetain times throughout the day to help their residents get in and out of the town - the last bus for this service is 10 p.m. so that might prove to be too early for some.
All in all, although we were very apprehensive at first, due to our original hotel being overbooked, we were pleased with this as an alternative.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool have a nice view of Molivos too.

Went here with my young son and parents for one week. the rooms were basic but comfortable enough. the staff and owners were the best I have ever come across. It was end of season and my child was the only one there, this seemed to give the staff and other guests freedom to spoil him rotten. he would go to the bar for a juice and return with his lunch made by the owner while she tried to teach him Greek. It was one of the most friendly and relaxing holidays we have ever had and the Greek people are among the friendliest in the world. The island is beautiful and the town of Molyvos has the most amazing little restaurants and waffle bars.

This is the worst hotel I've ever been to and I have done many in my life. Don't be fooled by the pictures. The rooms are a joke, nothing has been changed since de 70's. Everything looks cheap. There was mold on our mattress and many bugs in the room because there was a big space letting them in at the bottom of the door. The cleaning was done quickly and poorly. On top of that, we had no hot water most of the time and the toilet made a terrible noise for thirty minutes each time we flushed it.

Ok. So all of that was terrible and on top of that, the people who worked at this hotel were not professional at all. They had no respect for customers, especially if you are a woman (that's called mysoginy I think..). This is what despised me the most about this place. When you pay for an hotel, even if it's not fist class, the least you can do is to have respect and to be kind to your customers. Unfortunately, this was not the case here.

So, for all this reasons, this is the worst hotel I've even been to and I would'nt recommend it to anyone, not even to my worst enemy.
