Maritsa's Bay Hotel
Ranked #31 of 37 Hotels in Pythagorion
Reviewed 2 October 2009

Maritsa Bay Studios have spectacular views across to Turkey.
If you have a studio apartment at this hotel beware, the views are 5 star, the apartments are hardly worth half a star. They are very, very basic. The "kitchen" consists of a hotplate and a very small fridge, our kitchen was dirty, as well the shelves looked like they had not been cleaned it months, decent cutlery, and cups were non existent. The mattresses on the beds are lumpy and very uncomfortable. The bathroom was not much better than the kitchen, although the shower was powerful, you could not use it on full power, because there was no shower enclosure at all, and the water just ended up running out of the bath room door and flooding the apartment.
So if you want breathtaking views, this is the place, if you want decent accommodation try some where else.

We stayed at this excuse for a hotel july 2009 .We were booked to stay for 1 week ,could only manage 2 days ............................Thers so much bad about the Maritsa.......... apart from the overall grime and dirt ,its a souless place which is really out on a limb .Theres a hotel bus that takes you into town ,not regular enough it stops at 1-00pm and starts again at 9-00pm ish.It is totally run down and in need of a massive overhall .The thing that upset me most of all was the hotel dog Rocky ,he was tied to a tree 24/7 in the hot sun ,with not enough water and nothing to occupy him .He wast a guard dog at all ,so why tie him up ? we arrived at the hotel in the early hours and he didnt wimper .If you like animals and creepy crawlies youll find plenty at this hotel especially in your room We had leeches which were all over the place hanging on the walls waiting to suck our blood ,yuk.it was a zoo in a room So my advice to you is stay away from the Maritsa

My main complaints about this hotel are the following:
- dirty rooms / bathroom
- radio in room not working
- poor food, with no fruit / fresh salads and similar (although this changed slightly for the better as people started complaining)
- very non-professional staff
- water constantly shifting temperature and pressure
- A/C during the day didn't cool enough and the whole hotel, not just the room was very hot
- dirty water in pool

Otherwise, the hotel has a nice view on the sea, but that's about it. Personally I wouldn't recommend anyone this hotel.

Booked through Greek agent - Meridian Travel ... this hotel is located near the town Pythagrion. It has a lovely pool and fantastic views of the Aegean Sea -- you can see Turkey. The owner was very hospitable - our stay was 3 nights in early May, paid 33 euro/night -- breakfast included, dinner was 9 euro (and quite good by the way). You can hike down to a sandy beach and their is a nice hike along the coastline. Hotel provides shuttle service to/from town 5 times daily. No TV in room - so bring reading material -- the lobby TV seemed to be set to a German station. We were the only Americans staying here -- most Ams. seemed to visit the Greek Islands via cruise ships. At the hotel, we arranged a day trip to Ephesus, Turkey. A great hotel to work on your tan - marble floors throughout - even on your balcony. I would stay here again -- especially at the price we paid.

My first choice of Fito Bay was already booked so this was a good alternative suggested by the agent. Most folks seemed to have rental cars -- we didn't -- seemed like a lot of money to spend for one day. I hope to post some photos later.
