This was one of the worst experiences my parents and I have ever had at a hotel. The owners are very strange. The wife running the hotel was nice but so passive to her awful husband that it was scary. Her husband is a very angry man and his presence is disturbing. We stayed for only two nights and left,...

So much potential for this outdated hotel. Great location, pretty grounds, rooms stark but clean, lovely beach. The pool needs a good cleaning & a little work. Sadly, this was the worst bed & pillows I have ever slept on....I would have been better off sleeping in my car. Or in one of the bizarrely placed broken down cars on... More

The only reason I give a four star review is because of the location. We actually had a great stay here and have been here many times before. It really does have an unbeatable location right on Samara's beautiful beach. It is very sad to see the steady decay of the resort. The restaurant is closed but they still serve... More

Was the last place in town going through. $100.00 cash, no receipt. Went for a swim and a b Ite to eat and our BOSE head sets were gone. No safes in the rooms. There was security on duty but of course no one saw anything. Bed was hard. A sheet for a blanket. One pillow each with a canvas... More

We were a group of 16 staying December 27th-31st 2013. The location at the beach is first class. Rooms vary, some are nice and some not so nice. The table service is OK, about average to be in Samara. Allow more than an hour for lunch. Food is average, there are better restaurants to be found along the beach. As... More

This hotel is in a wonderful location, right by the beach. The good things about this hotel are: 1. beachfront location - can enjoy the walk along the beach and easy access to many beachfront restaurants 2. Pool right by the beach where you can lie down sunbathing on a beach chair as long as you like and jump into... More

The place is half decent but the owner truly ruined my time there. He sits around the hotel all day and smokes while making you feel completely uncomfortable. Literally everyday sitting at a table starring you down. He treats the girls that work there like garbage to. After 3 days of bad vibes we ended up spending the rest of... More

I went to stay on this hotel even after reviewing Trip Advisor not so good comments. But, I liked it overall. I liked the included breakfast, the room, the pool. The seevice was average but I would say the "non intromissive" behavior is way better than having someone on your back. The german owner and his friend are always around,... More
