“A fun place to stay”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Vasilli makes the stay a little different as he is so personable. Always has time for a few words and makes you feel like a friend.
The apartments are more than adequate although at the beginning of the season the bathroom floor getting wet from the shower was a minor niggle as it takes a while to dry, no doubt in the height of the summer it doesn't.
The drop from the drive in to the car park area is another niggle too and one that needs to be remedied as when reversing in for the first time I had a lucky escape when the from spoiler fortunately came loose from its holding clips rather than being damaged as I ground out on the unseen hazard.
That apart, and provided you don't mind the half mile walk in to town to the nearest supermarket or restaurant this place is excellent.
We hired a car at the airport, driving on the island is very easy with little traffic to have to deal with.

Vasilli is the perfect host of this paradise. Set in the peaceful hills, a 20 minute beautiful walk from town, it is a very relaxing place to be. The view across to the town cannot be bettered in Greece. Apartments are typically Greek. Two beds , a shower, a cooker and a balcony with table and chairs. All kept clean. What more do you need. Vasilli has a bar where he serves drinks and breakfast/snacks so you can spend all day by the pool if you want. Molyvos has some very good restaurants and bars (and an outdoor cinema). You will never get tired of exploring the town and harbour. It is as spectacular as the view from the apartment.

Room Tip: Best rooms are upstairs facing the castle.

Arrived at the Marianthi after only a 1hour & 40 mins delay at Manchester!!, to be greeted by the lovely friendly face of Vasilis, and during our stay realised he is one of the most genuine owners we have ever met on holiday in Greece.
We had a lovely high floor room overlooking the pool with fantastic views of the sea, castle & Molyvos. Watching the sunset most evenings from the balcony will stay in our memory for a long time.The room was spacious enough for the 2 of us and the bathroom even had a cabinet over the sink for toiletries instead of having to balance them on a window ledge like some rooms we have stayed in Greece!! One evening the bulb went in the bathroom and Vasilis came straight away with a replacement....what a star.
The pool area is very spacious with plenty of sunbeds available, also nice and quiet for relaxing & reading. Most days there was a lovely breeze which was refreshing, also there are great views from round the pool...sea, castle & surrounding gardens.
The gardens are very well kept by Christos,Vasilis' brother, and are a credit to him.
The bar/taverna at the Marianthi serves excellent food especially their 'beef stifado' cooked by Vasilis' Mum, one of the best we've had in Greece. All their ingredients, salads & veg are home grown, and their tomatoes & olives were very tasty.
During our stay we did many walks around the area. One day we took the bus to Anaxos and walked back to Molyvos via Petra. Another day we walked up the road towards Vafios, and took the path to Petra via the reservoir. On our return from Petra we took the signposted path up to Vafios village. By this time we were getting hungry. We went to a lovely restaurant called 'Vafios' where we enjoyed a lovely meze starter for 2 people, which included cheese & spinach pies, zucchini flowers, stuffed vine leaves to mention a few. Then we walked the meal off back to base.
We also decided to take a one way boat trip from Molyvos harbour to Skala Sikaminia, a lovely quaint fishing harbour, and walked back along the coastal path, dropping down to the beach before arriving at Eftalou. Then continued on back to Molyvos....would not have missed doing this walk as the scenery was superb!! This walk took us about 2 and a half hours with a couple of refreshment stops. .
A trip to the castle with an entry fee of only 2 euros is a must but closed on a Monday. The views over to Turkey are stunning. The steps up to the castle are not steep so easily negotiated for those people who think it may not be accessible.
There is so much more to do and explore, so a return visit is definately on the cards and we will most certainly be staying with Vasilis & his family again.....cannot recommend the Marianthi highly enough.
Thanks again Vasilis for a great 2 weeks and look forward to our next time xxx

Firstly, the good points. Vasilis is a great host, welcoming and always has a smile. Our room was a good size, with a free safe for valuables and air-con (although we didn't need it as there was a lovely breeze). Pool is a good size and there are plenty of sunbeds. It's a 15 minute walk into town, and if you're feeling fit you can walk up the hill to Vafios where there is a superb taverna, or take the trail to Eftalou and the hot springs (pleasant stroll early in the morning but get the bus back!) another good point is that there is free wi-fi although the signal only really works near the bar!
On the negative side, we were woken constantly on most nights by cars arriving or leaving between 1am and sunrise - we think it was various staff using the little car park opposite the restaurant/bar as opposed to other guests.

Overall it was a good place to stay, it was just the noise which spoiled things, ironic really as we chose the place so as not to be in the centre of town! I guess we could have shut the doors and put the air-con on but it was bliss to sleep with that lovely breeze :-)

Yes. We went again! Year 7 (and already planning Year 8!)
Arriving late due a 6 hour delay out of Manchester all the stress of that was immediately forgotten when my old friend Vasilis appeared from the reception area.

Room 44 was ours this year with the goats as neighbours again but who cares?

Room was clean and big enough for the3 of us....and whilst the rooms were all taken in the 2nd week we didn't have any problem securing our sun beds. The infamous cheese ham and tomato toasties took some hammer as did the Amstel

A night on the Ouzo until 4 in the morning with Vasilis is highly recommended - but not the hangover!!!

The walk into town was pleasurable and set us up nicely for an evening meal down in the harbour....an all round brilliant holiday

Room Tip: ...beware of Greeks serving ouzo....

We have just returned today after 15 days at the Marianthi. An extra day/night due to a 24 hour flight delay with Monarch!! Other reviewers have already said this but one of the best things about the Marianthi is Vasilis, the owner, who is extremely firendly and welcoming. On arrival there was no booking in, he just showed us to our blocks, told us our room number and said the key was in the door. On the day we were due to leave he told us of the delay and told us to take our cases back to our rooms and keep them until further notice. As it turned out we stayed an extra night so he got the maid to come back and clean and change the bedding and towels. The apartments are further out than we expected so a walk into town was a good 20 minutes but we hired a scooter so it wasn't a real problem. A taxi was just 5 euros. Yes the apartments maybe could do with a few extra nicities such as mirrors, more storage, pictures, better flusing toliets etc but then thats Greece for you. If you're not a good sleeper then beware of the sheep in the field behind who were herded every morning by the shepherds at around 6am. They wear bells so are noisy!! It was good value for money so would definately return. And lastly the safe deposit boxes were free and Air Con wasn't needed.

Room Tip: We were in Room 26 which was in the second block. Our room was on the side of the block so never got...

We chose Marianthi as the apartments are in a quiet area and not overlooked, but still only a short walk from Molyvos. Vasilis made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived, such a friendly host always happy to help and advise. Rooms are basic but more than adequate, cleaned daily with good views and comfortable beds. There's a decent size pool with plenty of seating and sun loungers around it, and the complex feels uncrowded surrounded by pleasant views of the countryside and castle. If you fancy eating onsite the pool bar serves really good homemade food, much of which is sourced locally or grown on the surrounding farmland. We rarely go back to the same place twice, but we certainly hope to return to Marianthi Paradise.
