We have visited this wonderful hotel with my parents to celebrate my birthday. The emphatic and professional working staff makes this place an oasis of calm and peace. Accommodation, service and food was very good. The view from my room was really breathtaking. Maria, wishing you and your team all the best. Please continue the good work with the same passion as you have demonstrated to us. Thank you so much!

I enjoyed my stay here and it was a lovely experience. The staff was very helpful. The view of the Turkish coast is amazing. The hotel has outdoor and indoor pools. The room was clean and large with a terrace and sea views. The food was delicious and varied. The hotel is nicely decorated surrounded by palm trees and close to the old town and the Molivos castle.

What an awful experience. If this is too long to read - just look at the pictures I took and posted. I have reviewed over 130 places/hotels on tripadvisor - this is not merely a first time user with a bad travel experience. I have travelled independently since 1993. I have NEVER been treated so badly by staff, managers, and owner, or stayed in a hotel where, after complaining about the room not being what we booked, and not being clean, I was threatened with having the police called!! The owner threatened, saying he was a lawyer. He seemed to believe that if we did not stay, we could not leave a review, and was trying to blackmail us not to stay, for that reason. So rude. Anyway, the photos of the bathroom are in the room they put us. They then tried to up sell us a suite - at an extorionate rate. The entry to the suite is where I took the photos with the blue paint peeling everywhere. Do not stay here; it is a smelly dump. Go up the road to Sunrise resort- infinitely better hotel, pleasant staff, and great facilities.

Such great potential with nice pools and ideal location. Staff unhelpful and you are charged for absolutely all extras. Don't book an All-in, is isn't wroth it. The kitchen-cook hasn't got any knowledge of European food. Lot of people who booked all-in were eating down-town. All over hotel old drinking glasses, not enough cutlery. Also the garden can have more maintenance. Lot of cats in the restaurant.

Such great potential with nice pools and ideal location. Staff unhelpful and you are charged for absolutely everything 2 games of pool cost €7. Towels €3. Man making pancakes for breakfast was rude and very reluctant to make pancakes (his job). Service very slow and restaurant food very poor. Drinks were served very slow, beers were flat and not even full pints. Over all very poor.

Rooms small and not so clean. Property needs maintenance asap. Pools arr dirty and full of sand and suncream. Unfriendly staff, especially the barman at the pool. All inclusive food is more than horrible. Go somewhere else!

We have had a wonderful stay at Viva Mare. Due to the anniversary of me and my friend, they upgraded us to one of their suites as a surprise. So kind! And w o w, the suite was incredible. Comfortable beds, great view and all so clean. We made use of the all inclusive facilities, but that was a bit of a let down. Especially breakfast and lunch did not offer a lot of choices. During the afternoon snack, only one scoop of ice cream a person is allowed. You have to pay extra for cola zero/light. Etc. But looking at what you pay, it’s a good price-quality ratio. Overall I would recommend this place! But I would recommend to eat in Molyvos, which can be cheap ánd super delicious!
