My first taste of Greece was a divine experience. It was on the island of Samos where I discovered that you don't have to be a Greek god to live like one (even if only for a few days). We stayed at the lovely Anema By the Sea Resort. The owners, Toula and Diamond, not only greeted us warmly, but... More

I had the pleasure of staying a the Hotel Anema for a writing workshop in July. Our group was treated with such care and kindness throughout our stay, it made us feel as though we were really part of a Greek "family" for our two weeks there. The staff and our hosts, Toula and Diamond, were unfailingly warm, helpful and... More

I stayed at Anema by the Sea Guesthouse for two weeks with a writers' workshop, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The hosts and staff are warm and welcoming, the breakfasts delicious and garden-fresh, the rooms cozy and clean, and the locale stunning. I truly felt immersed in the local culture, making for a most memorable holiday.

I stayed at this hotel for two weeks with a writers' workshop and can't say enough good things about it. The hosts are welcoming and gracious, and pay attention to every detail, ensuring you have a great stay. The breakfast and supper were excellent, as was the service. It is a short walk to an excellent supermarket and nice beaches.... More

I've stayed at Anema Guest House several times and each time have departed a very satisfied guest. Anema Guest House is just that...a guest house and a very cozy one at that. It doesn't pledge to be a luxury hotel. What it does promises is to provide the best possible care to all visitors and, in my opinion, certainly delivers... More

Yes! Thank you for pointing that out. Anema by the sea is, in fact, a guesthouse and a lavish resort it is not, but as you also noted, we do set very high standards where guest comfort, satisfaction and local ambience is concerned. Thank you for confirming this. Most of our visitors are people searching for ‘out of the ordinary’,... More

The reviews that we had read before coming to Anema by the Sea made us believe that the hotel had a much higher standard than we experienced. The room we got was on ground floor with a balcony facing the pool and the bar. We did not find the room very clean; the second night did we find a scorpion... More

Staff, Hotel, location, beach - everything was perfect!! I travel a lot but Hotel Anema in Karlovassi is the only place that makes me feel like home.

My girlfriend and I visited Samos for 7 nights, and we couldn't have made a better choice for a hotel. The pictures we saw online do not do justice to the rooms, which are spacious, have great A/C, a nice balcony, big bathrooms and even a little kitchen for simple cooking. The breakfast was delicious--particularly their feta cheese and yogurt!... More

Our first stay at the Anema was in 1995, it was with my wife, our son,daughter and our niece from Athens. When we arrived at the Anema at 5:30am there was a receptionist waiting outside by the pool to greet us and take us to our room. It really was a great way to be received for the first time... More
