“EXCELLENT VALUE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2013

We stayed in a Grand Suite that was very clean and spacious. Kitchen, lounge, bedroom, 2 bathrooms and 2 balconies. One balcony overlooked the huge swimming pool and the other one was more private facing the back of the building. The included breakfast was very good. The hotel is not on the beach but is within easy walking distance of the beach and town square. Having stayed at Skala Eressos in 2010 in a beach front property for almost the same price, I would not hesitate to recommend this place well above the one in Skala Eressos! All in all, we had a great stay and will stay here again when next on the island of Lesvos.

Aeolian Gaea is hands down the best hotel on the island of Lesvos! Mesmerizing view, outstanding service from an amazing family and gorgeous rooms!! The hotel was conveniently located close to the beach and offered an enormous pool, the breakfast and the meals offered were made from the freshest ingredients and everything was extremely clean. All in all, perfect value for money and a truly memorable experience! Highly recommended!!!

We moved to this hotel after being dissatisfied with another hotel. We were very pleased with our choice. The family running the hotel were all very friendly and gave us good advice on places to visit. The hotel is 400m walk to the beach and a wide range tavernas, mostly overlooking the sea. The hotel is modern, clean and extremely well furnished and decorated, quiet, and has a very large and very clean swimming pool. I had a massage in the spa area which was excellent (40 euros) and they also did our washing for us for 10 euros. When sitting around the pool, iced glasses of water were provided without asking. We also had a meal one evening which was delicious but no more than we had expected given the sheer excellence of the breakfasts. We cannot speak highly enough of the hotel, or the family running it and this would be our number one choice on returning to the beautiful island of Lesvos. The location is central for the island's attractions although a reasonable drive from the airport. The resort of Skala Kallonis is modern, smart and yet in our experience very reasonably priced.

The Aeolian Gaea is a wonderful, family run hotel in Skal Kallonis. Well kept, very clean and with real personal service from the family. Our room (311) was excellent - very spacious, spa bath and a huge balcony overlooking the fields. All the good comments on the other reviews are spot on - a superb place to stay.
Skala Kallonis is a small fishing village, with a little port and a square surrounded by low key bars and tavernas. Typically Greek and all the better for that.
Highly recommended.

Skala Kallonis is the place to stay if you want to see the island in a few days. It is so central. We stayed here 4 nights in June 2012. This family-run hotel was a superb value. It was clean, the rooms were large, the breakfast was excellent, and the folks running the hotel are super-nice people. It's not on the beach, but we travelled every day and went to some amazing places and never actually tried the beach locally. The pool is outstanding -- far larger than you would expect for a hotel this size. Bring your own beach towel because they aren't available at the hotel (pool towels are available). Try Ambrosia for dinner in Skala Kallonis, it was fabulous. (Will try to review it separately.) Can't say enough nice things about this hotel and the family that runs it.

A big thank you to everyone at the hotel for a wonderful week's stay.

We were allowed to check in early and shown to our room (211) which was spacious and very comfortable, with a large balcony and excellent self catering facilities. The pool was fantastic, especially compared to some accommodation we have stayed in in Greece, and the breakfast was delicious, varied and plentiful. Nothing was too much trouble for the family who own and run the hotel, and they were able to give excellent recommendations for day trips all over the island. I would say car hire is a must though.

Skala Kalloni is low key and very Greek (if you see what I mean). 'Ambrosia' was a superb all-round taverna for all the usual specialities, 'Mimis' was a great, old-fashioned and reasonably priced fish taverna and 'Faros' (Lighthouse) was a ridiculously good, totally local place for gyros, souvlaki etc...

If you want a beach, don't stay here-go to Skala Eresou in the west. If you want historic chic, with an uber cute harbour, go to Molyvos, but I can highly recommend Skala Kalloni as authentically Greek, friendly, resonably priced and central for seeing all the island has to offer.

Room Tip: 211 seemed to have a bigger balcony than some rooms.
