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. The Hotel is run by an amazing family that treat every guest like a friend. Next to the clean apartments, the friendly and very helpful staff, the great bar, and the perfect beach... More

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

We have stayed at the Anema twice. Once for four days in 2012 and again this past June for a whole month. Our daughter and her fiancée wanted the Greek island wedding of their dreams and the Anema made it happen. I contacted the Anema a year in advance and they were amazingly helpful every step of the way. They... More

Stayed overnight whilst island hopping and were amazed with what we got for the money. Would safely bet that many people would dismiss any hotel that only charges 40 euros, inc breakfast, as maybe not what they would consider suitable for them. The Anema will amaze you. It has its own BIG pool and literally across the road from the... More

The hotel might be a bit out of date, but the very friendly reception by the owners makes it a great place to stay. The pool is beautiful, breakfast is nice and the adjoining restaurant is a fine place to eat in the evening. Outside the high season the price for a room is 40 euro.

My wife and I just left Anema by the Sea and we already miss Toula and our new found friendship. From the start, we were made to feel like family and not like guests.
