Stayed here during the middle of October for a winter sunshine break. The hotel is very nice and clean but the best part are the views over the Aegean Sea just beautiful. The infinity pool is gorgeous too but unfortunately it was too cold to swim in as the week before we arrived they had some bad thunder storms which of course cooled the water down, however, one day we did go to the local Ladies Beach and swam in the sea there much warmer. Back to the hotel, we were only on B & B so can't comment on the food at dinner. Had a snack one lunchtime which was nice and tasty and a good portion size. Breakfast was adequate but there were rather a lot of bowls of olives, not my thing at breakfast, having said that their homemade jams were delicious.
Our room which was a suite was very nice but rather minimalist & the chairs in the lounge part not very comfy, only five hangers in the wardrobe but asked for more and we got them straight away, staff very helpful but unobtrusive, hit & miss with the tea & coffe supplies. We ate out in the local restaurants on an evening and found the local people to be very friendly and welcoming and we had some fabulous meals with wine at good prices.
The only downside I could say was that there was no lounge to speak of, just a little sitting area in the reception! They would be better not bothering with the clothes boutique (which I never saw open) and making that into a nice lounge.
Went to Ephesus on a half day trip which was long enough, very good but oh the crowds, just too many people. Apparently when the cruise ships come into port this is the main attraction and many times there were several ships in dock, nice to see them though some are absolutely huge.
Having said all the above we enjoyed our holiday but I certainly wouldn't want to stay there when the open air disco (which is just across the road from the hotel) is open during the summer months you will never get any sleep it is too close. Would I recommend Lavista Boutique, yes if you just want to chill out and have a lazy break.
