“Hotel Bella Vista- A good choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

Everything is almost OK in this clean,small, and quiet hotel in Eftalou-Molyvos..Nice pool, good breakfast and lunch, poolbar ..But though it is located by the sea, the beach is not so good, it is rocky and the hotel does not provide sunbeds or umbreallas on the shore...
Friendly staff...

Room Tip: Rooms with the pool view have the sun all afternoon long .

Bobby and his friendly staff make sure that everything is perfect in this clean,small, quiet hotel in Eftalou, located by the sea, just a few kilometers from the city of Molyvos. The buffet breakfast is varied and served on the terrace. There are drinks at the bar, on the terrace or by the pool. Limited meal menu at the hotel, but the Eftalou tavern is a 3 minute drive towards the thermal springs, approximately 800 meters from the hotel.You can use the hotel pool or cross the narrow road directly in front of the hotel to swim in the sea or lie on the pebble beach. The room was fine with safe, AC , minibar and balcony. Poor wifi in the room.The mattress was great ! Unfortunately there are steps in front of the hotel ( no ramp ) and no elevator, so we changed to a room on the main floor to make it easier on sore knees. The sea view from room 106 was OK, but the view is probably better from the upper floor.Other hotels in the area have many more flights of stairs than here! We deliberately chose to stay outside of Molyvos ( parking is impossible in the city) and use the Bella Vista hotel as our base for touring this part of the island . It was the perfect choice for us. If you decide not to rent a car , the hotel provides a free shuttle service to Molyvos 4 times each day. We used it one evening, arriving in the medieval town at 19:00 and returning to the hotel after dinner with the 22:00 shuttle .
The hotel caters mostly to Belgians and Dutch, with a scattering of other nationalities. If I return to the Molyvos part of the island I will definitely rent a car once again and book a room at Bella Vista.

We were in Lesbos 6 times and this was the best place we stayed so far. Nice, relaxed and friendly atmosphere, friendly staff, Babis the manager is all there for his guests, always smiling and helpful. Nice terrace in front with comfortable couches where most of the guests sit in the evening and chat with each other. Wifi in the lobby and a large pool, so very suitable for kids and teenagers. (Unfortunately there weren't a lot of them while we were there.)
The rooms were good; after a first day in a seaview room on the ground floor right next to the reception we switched to a room with more privacy in the back, nice and quiet.
I never wanted to stay in Ephtalou because I thought it was so far away from the town, but now I'm glad I did. It's so beautiful and quiet there, the sea is lovely and the sunsets are stunning. The hotel has a free shuttle to the town, there's a local bus every hour, very cheap and going to all nearby coastal villages, and a taxi costs only 5 euro. We thought we would need a scooter but in fact we only rented one for 2 days.

Very clean (rooms, pool, and sea); for breakfast not hundreds sorts of bread or cereals (only 4 or 5), but you can find sth. for everyone or every taste; Friendly staff make your vacation even more pleasant; I spend holidays with my daughter or my friend on Greek islands for the last 13 years and I can put in my word for this hotel.

I stayed at the Bella Vista mid-July for a week and enjoyed the hotel and its pool faciities.

The hotel is located on the beach front and no other hotel in the area can claim a beach at its doorstep in the area. Another advantage was the sence of space, the buildings, pool, and parking lot were not all cramped on a small plot. The actual pool was of a good size with an actual deep end, that many hotels nowadays don't have. You can actually have very decent coffee at the pool bar prepared properly by the hotel owner. Apart from the local bus runs from eftalou tou Molyvos and Petra, the hotel provided a bus service 4 times a day to Molyvos at very convenient times.

Another advantage of this hotel is its staff. Apart from the omnipresent hotel owner, the afternoon-evening receptionist Froni is amazing. She always greets everybody with a hearty smile, gives excellent recommendations as far as swimming spots/ excursions/ restaurants are concerned. There is a great young guy who waitered the tables at breakfast and the cleaning ladies are always smiling chatty and polite. I have to mention that this hotel is spotless. The sheets are chrispy clean, pillows matresses etc of very good quality. Every day the towels were arranged in a different pattern on the beds which was cute (bow tie, flower, boat etc)

The site I believe was representative of what you got at the hotel. The photos do show this hotel. Ask for a room with a pool view so you can enjoy the sunsets.

The disadvantages were not many. Breakfast was ok though repetitive. On the one day they exchanged vienna saussages and omelette for bacon and fried eggs we were shocked. If you decide to have a snack at the hotel rather than drive to Molyvos (Mythimna) -10 minute drive/ 30 min walk- for lunch or dinner the menu is very limited (burgers, fish fingers, club sandwiches, salads). This hotel is prefered by Dutch families with kids, so at times being single we felt a bid odd. We also felt that probably foreign tourists may be getting better deals than us Greeks which would be making the value/ price ratio more attractive than we found it.
