Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We arrived at the hotel early afternoon at the very beginning of September in a taxi after a very early start to catch the flight from Gatwick. We were immediately welcomed like old friends by Takis and Jenny who manage the property. This theme continued throughout the whole of our two-week stay, where nothing was too much for our hosts in ensuring we had all possibly assistance in making our stay as comfortable, informative and relaxing as could be. They even gave us a lift several miles up the road to visit the local thermal springs near Polikhnitos (entry 4 euros, separate immersion baths for men and women), a visit to the underground facilities of the hotel and a nice bottle of wine to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary as well as a signed copy of a book on the Russian - Chechen conflict written by Takis and some copies of DVD's burnt for us - we were well spoiled! This was after we had had to delay our visit to the island following a family bereavement earlier in the year. The hotel kindly held onto our deposit, as long as we rebooked this season which we were able to do, meaning the insurance claim was only for the flights and car-parking.

Our room A7 was quite spacious and was one of four sea-facing rooms with large balconies. Most evenings after dinner on the beach-side part of the hotel's restaurant we would sit there drinking brandy and coffee whilst reading and watching the stars. The view to the water and across to Hios and the Turkish mainland was obscured by the vigourous tamarisk trees, but it didn't matter too much as we used to spend every day on the beach looking out across the beautiful clear, warm water inbetween our regular swims out to the buoys. The beach is mostly coarse sand with a sprinkling of shingle and extends many kilometres away to the east. One slightly unusual feature is the sloping lava shelf that a lot of beaches on the island have just on the water line. It is best to take it easy until you have worked out how to ease yourself into the water. Once in however, it is well worth it!

Returning to the food at the hotel's restaurant, we ate 'in' for 12 of our 14 nights, venturing the kilometre on the other two evenings to check out the rest of the resort. The food at the hotel was exceptional, Maria the chef producing consistently excellent meals during our stay. On quite a few occasions neither my wife or I could finish our meals. We did however decide against the meal-plan which the hotel offer as firstly we thought we might need some flexibilty and secondly, at no time during our stay did we quite match the food value of the meal plan in our spending. Certainly the food would be one of the real reasons for wanting to visit, along with the beach, the comfortable beds and the excellent hospitality of Takis, Jenny, father George and Panos who cheerfully carries the drinks and food down as far as the beach if required.

The island of Lesbos is the third-largest of Greece's islands after Crete and Evia and getting from Mytiline airport to resorts normally involves using a taxi. The hotel kindly arranged these transfers for us. It is 60km from the airport to Vatera and the fare (each way) was euro 70. Travelling independently sometimes has it's drawbacks, but at least we knew before we departed what the costs would be - thank you again, Takis. At the time of year we visited the resort was pretty quiet, which suited us perfectly - it seemed at times we almost had the beach to ourselves. We understand it gets quite busy in the high season which starts mid-July and ends late August. As far as we were concerned the emperatures at the begiining were just right for us - any hotter would have been a waste! Would we go back? We have travelled far and wide in this big, wide world of ours and don't intend to stop just yet (we are both in our early sixties). We have visited nine destinations on the Greek mainland and islands so far on our travels and hope to continue to pick off some more. If we ever need a week of just chilling out and relaxing on a beach we would however be very happy to return to the Hotel Vatera Beach. In the meantime we will commend it to our family, like-minded friends and TripAdvisor readers. We were impressed by the reviews we read last autumn before we booked and these have been borne out during our stay - enjoy!

Thank you Takis, Jenny, George and Panos for making our holiday what is was.

The owners are very frendly, they took time to discuss with us and gave us good advice. And they cook very good home-made food!

Rooms are simple but OK.

Thanks to Mr. Takis Ballis, his wife and dear sister Jane, who hosted me as if I am their close friend. I admired their discipline and devotion to their job. Sea is the cleanest and food is delicious, no high volume music to disturb your reading at the beach.Helpful taxi drivers are available. Rooms are spacious and clean...I strongly recommend Vatera Beach.

The Vatera Beach Hotel was the first hotel we stayed in while on our Greek Holiday. The owner (Barbara) was very friendly and checked us in quickly. We discovered that you are to place your key on the front desk rack when you leave, so basically anyone can take your key because they leave it out for you to take when you arrive. There is a nice porch in front of the hotel and the hotel serves excellent food. There are phones in some rooms but not others. There are balconies off the rooms and the stairs and hallways are marble so be careful they are slippery if wet. The hotel has beutiful grounds with plants everywhere. There is no pool but the ocean is right across the street. free breakfast is served and consists of har boiled eggs mainly. (not the excellent part I was refering to dinner) The other staff members (Barbara's grown kids) were complete snots and hated us because we are American. They had an attitude whenever they spoke to us. There is also a bar too and a gift stand selling candy and travel necesities. There is an ice cream machine that is pretty cool. You can charge anything you buy in the hotel like food and gifts to your room so it just shows up on your bill. Overall an average experience!

Many others have rated this hotel highly and I agree with their comments. This family run hotel is across a narrow road from the famous Vatera beach - a 7km stretch of shingle (Lesvos is volcanic) with very clear water. The hotel's amenities are a little basic- the bedrooms could be a little more comfortable, but the breakfasts are lovely and the hospitality given by Takis and Jennie is excellent. Nothing is too much trouble and they will offer information & advice on places to visit, the best places to eat and where to hire a car. We were there for two weeks at the beginning of September and the resort had an end of season feel. It was great for us as the hotel was quiet and we had a great choice of Sunbeds! We had room 4 overlooking the beach and above the hotel terrace. It was nice but there was no shade at all until 6pm and although we were given an umbrella it didn't really work.
We came home relaxed and felt well cared for.

Spending the first half of our honeymoon in Vatera Beach Hotel was a great decision. The cordiality of the place and the sea being so near catch you the moment you arrive. In additon to the simple but great facility, thanks to our incredibly kind and friendly hosts, it was a wonderful stay.

We discovered Vatera Beach Hotel in the days of the Drachma and it still gives us a thrill to know we will be returning yet again for that personal touch that we have come to love and cherish - as delivered by hosts Takis and Jennie. They have taken over the reigns (from their parents) with a passion and it is still by far our favourite holiday retreat anywhere in the world. You could book somewhere else cheaper, or you could book somewhere else far more expensive and glamorous. Either way you would still be missing out on a remarkable stay. The cuisine (local and Greek specialities) is worth coming for alone. The friendships we have formed here over the years (with staff and guests alike) will last a lifetime - what more could we say? Highly recommended!

We stayed at Vatera Beach Hotel for 5 days in early September. The hotel is cozy, rooms are big enough, bathrooms are a bit small but if you are handicaped like me, it is just for you. Very clean. Food is delicious, we loved gavros fish the most. We read previous comments about breakfast, but it was also satisfactory: 2-3 different kinds of chees, omlette (precooked) plus boiled egg, 2 kinds of marmalade plus honey, salami, bread, cake, tea. The owners - Jenny and Takis - are vey nice and very helpful; they gave us the best advice on where to go, what to see etc. Thank you Jenny and Takis, you made this trip very special to us!

I Can't recommend this hotel Enough!

One of the best hotels i have stayed at for years. Very wellkeept and clean beach front hotel (as common in Greece there is a low-trafficked road between the hotel and the sea) The owners are very friendly and offered us much advise and information during our stay. The beach is nice and there are sunchairs available, however the condition of the seabed out from the beach is not the best with large stones, bath-shoes are recommended.

We had a front room overlooking the beach, room was somewhat small and the bath was on the smaller side but that was no problem, huge balcony. Room was very quiet, maybe due to that there were few other guests.

We ate in the resturant a few nights and the food was excellent, breakfast was good .
