Doesn't get much better than this. Very clean and well kept, although foot traffic along the upper deck can be heard quite easily.
We were located on the upper deck of the starboard wing. A deck runs all around this level with chairs at each unit. The view is wonderful from this level of the coastline along Marginal Way and the beach. We even saw surfers riding the waves.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Bellavista Menaggio
This place is kid heaven-indoor pool, mulit-level kiddie pool, heated outdoor pool. Decent snack bar poolside. Bar service at the pool for frazzled adults. It's right on the sea and great for long walks which can accomodate strollers. The only downside was the room conditions-there was actually an iron burn mark on the rug, no closet, and stained bathroom curtains. But your kids won't care and they'll have the time of their little lives!
Great Ocean views from poolside but room conditions are lacking
Incredible views of the ocean and great outdoor and indoor pool facilities. The rooms, however, are another story. Shabby conditions from the beds to poor air conditioning. But as a halfway point to Bar Harbor, it's worth the stop!
3 rooms cottage
Ask for the 3 room cottage.off season price are ok. It's very nice and super for kids. Sleep 7 people. Cutel kitchen, 2 living room, 2 bathroom....very ''Maine '' style. we go there every year.
A beautiful place in a beautiful town, and I will return there, BUT:rooms should be upgraded with central air, instead of an air conditioner in the wall that you have to stand in front of to use the sink, anda ridiculous 1 towel per person enforced limit at the pool ($20/towel if not turned in at the pool, and the towels are thin, plain white; who'd want them, anyway?).it's a motel, and for 200 bucks a nite, they should do better, but there's no incentive, since the hotel is heavily booked.
Loved the ocean view
This hotel has a spagtacular view of the ocean. The room was very nice and the service was great. We went in the off season and it was beautiful. Looking forward to going there this summer. A great place
My Stay at the Anchorag by the Sea
I recommend this hotel due to the beautiful
location and nice grounds. We stayed at a good
discount becaue we went off-season. The
hotel is right above the famous Marginal Way
walk which takes you on a walk overlooking
the Atlantic Ocean. If you like the ocean, you
will probably enjoy this hotel.
The hot tub was located outdoors, which was
cold in the off season.
I didn't think the service was that great but
it was OK.
In my opinion, the hotel could be kept up
a little better on the outside, but since we were
off-season it is probably re-painted right
before the busy spring and summer seasons.
The room was very nice and some rooms offer
either a side or full frontal ocean view, for
which you will pay more.
Hint: go off-season. Ask for the least expensive
room available that has an ocean view. Bring
walking shoes for the Marginal Way walk.
Enjoy the indoor swimming pool also - great
We spent two nights here in July and found the property to be excellent. The location is beautiful on a cliff overlooking the sea, and everything is walking distance from the hotel.
I'ts the my favorite place to vacation
I highly recomend it to you or anyone you know! You will have the time of your life! My favorite part about the hotel is the 30 person spa!
Enjoyed everything - nice location on the ocean, close to the village, short ride to Portaland - try the winter package.
Can't wait to visit you again...
Visited with you this July and had a wonderful time.

... heading north on I-93 through countryside that was trying reluctantly to turn autumnal. We stopped in at Tilton for a morning coffee, chatting to inn-keeper Alan about the America's Cup, and best spots in White Mountain for leaf peeping. He directed us to the Kankamagus Highway, which cut through the forest from west to east. He was confident that the fall would be peaking, and we headed off to see if he was right.
No. He wasn’t. We were probably ...

... and ocean. Down the road and around the corner is Middle beach. I mostly see groups of kids hanging out here standing outside of and around their cars. Giant rocks lay on the other side of this part of the wall, and the tide is always right up against it. A little further down and around yet another corner is Mothers Beach. Here, there is a playground, a smaller sandy area for laying out, and access to the waves. Right next to this beach is the KBIA ...
