All inclusive stay for 8 days. Terrific view (though a construction is spoiling a bit the view) Staff very pleasant sometimes too fast. Large choice on the Buffet well cooked. Swimming pool very nice and clean. Rooms in Bungalows are a bit smaller. Tennis does exist but not really pleasant to play. Except Cano and Waterbike, water sports are chargeable... More

This is our third time and probably the last time to stay in a all- inclusive resort hotel in Turkey. In this country, "all-inclusive" does not include ordinary cocktails like mojito or daiquiri, participation to a bingo organized by entertainment group or receiving coke or other soda in the room fridge which does not cool really. With a hope to... More

Never again... That's the only way I can describe my family's stay at Samara. This was my 10th time in Bodrum and this resort is by far the worst I've stayed at. I'm from Turkey and know that we have some excellent hotels in this city- Samara is not one of them. The staff are among the most inexperienced and... More

I have stayed 4 night at the Samara Hotel. Hotel's location was nice. Small sandy beach, nice garden. Unfortunately our stay was in "Bayram" period for Turkey. It's unfortunately because hotel was full and the staff is inadequate. Our room was OK but little bit old furnished. Air condition device need some technical support. I witnessed some hygiene problems. There... More

It was the worst holiday that I have ever had; not because of the hotel itself but also because of how we are treated. Workers are not kind, management team act like we are their slaves. Food is terrible, hotel is old furnished, air conditioners are broke. We came here as a couple and they gave us separate beds. General... More

I stayed there with my family in July 2014. We were only one family from lithuania, the main people were from France. The rooms are beautiful and clean. The food is delicious and you can choose what you want, a lot of deserts, fruits, fish and meat every day. Only the coffee was tasteless. Beach is a bit small, but... More

I stayed there in June 2014, service is very very good, all personal is very good to guests, not all of them speaking English but enough for communication. Beach enough big for the number of tourists at that moment. Water was amazing. Two days was bigger waves with stronger wind, but for June that is I think normal. Temperature was... More

I just came back from the Samara hotel last Friday. We were 4 girls and we loved every bits of our stay.

My husband and I have just returned from a weeks holiday at the Samara, its a nice hotel but I wouldn't rate it 5* more a 4* this is because it doesn't have the grandeur and opulence of other 5* we have stayed in. Our room was 331 lovely big room on ground floor until we heard the noisy air... More

We stayed at the Samara hotel for a week in June 2014, here are our impressions: - Food: good but a bit repetitive. Excellent grilled fish. And everything is very clean: not a single stomach issue despite not avoiding "risky" foods. - Beach: nice but too small for the amount of people and the number of sunbeds. Not enough personal...
