Hotel not expensive. Very welcoming. Adequate kitchen facilities en suite, including good filter coffee maker. Free wi-fi available. Beaches at both Anaxos and Petra within walking distance, and numerous restaurants. We are both in our seventies, the temperatures were always 30° , and we didn't hire a car, but walked to several other villages - Molyvos, Petri, Lafionas, Vafios, where we could eat before returning to Petra for a swim or a shower. The walking (and cycling) tracks are now well marked - but some of them were admittedly slightly strenuous!

"Hidden gem of a hotel near Petra and the Eftalou Hot Spings!"
It was initially hard for me to locate a decent hotel near Eftalou (The hot springs which was the main reason for my visit to Lesvos) because the listings here are pretty sparse.
I am glad I found this hotel!
Starting from the warm welcome from the owner's son Dimitri to the friendly staff. The room was typical of 3+* hotel with a rather stiff but OK bed though. (I like my plushy beds!)
The setting of the hotel is great with nice views of the bay and the swimming pool area was very nice with a restaurant attached.
On thing I do have to mention on my visit is on my departure day, I was at the airport in Mytilini which was an hour away and to my horror discovered that the hotel did not return my passport to me! I quickly phoned Dimitri and he immediately found a taxi to rush it to me! I should mention that it was done at no cost to me!
Just make sure you get your passport back on checking in!
