“Family holidays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Great service, friendly people. Our maisonette was really nice and comfortable for my family we are three so we need space to move and the room had all the space we needed.
People were very friendly, nice breakfast, excellent room service, everything we asked we had it.

The hotel location was excellent.

Room Tip: maisonettes have enough space to move around

I m not the type that I m fond of night-life therfore I believe that this hotel fulfilled my expectations for relaxing vacations..The friendly staff with their smile on their face make me feel welcome all the time...the delicious food was beyond my expectations..I ve stayed in the rooms of the section Posseidon and there the rooms were spacious and clean and if the bathrooms were a little bigger then they should be ideal...Great bartender that could prepare for me my favourite cocktail that you don't find easily in all inclusive hotels... if we had more sunny days it woul be fantastic experience ..
MANY thanks to the staff and I really hope to come back again !!!

Room Tip: I should recommend the guests to stay in the small houses that are found behind the building Orfeas...

Quiet, beautiful scenery, clean beach next to the hotel, polite staff, good value for money. In general it is a good choice for vacation in Samos and a starting point to explore this green island. It is not be a "design" hotel but gives a feeling of the local culture & traditional hospitality.

The Kampos Village Resort is located in the village of Kampos Marathokampos at the foot of the high mountain Kerkis with magnificent views.

The hotel itself is a quiet romantic resort with three pools, a restaurant, a bar and small playground. Interior of the rooms is simple, I would say - Greek standard :) The complex is surrounded by pretty olive gardens, only a few minutes walk from from a pebble beach with crystal clear water. Downside of this pretty beach was a very cold water (mid July), so kids preferred to swim in one of the three pools and we took a lot of trips around the island. To our surprise there was much more warm water in Kokkari and surrounding beaches on the north of the Samos.

The village of Votsalakia - Marathokampos is not much more than a a few shops and handful of good beach restaurants alongside the one (only) road leading through the area, but it is a great place for realaxing holidays and good starting point to make trips by car.

Room Tip: You can get a pretty sea view, when staying in the highest floor of the building. Furthest from the...

Surrounded by olive trees Cambos Village is located by the feet of the mountains and only a few minutes walk from the rocky - however beautiful – beach with crystal clear water.
Apart from a few unessential shops alongside the narrow (and only) road leading through the area there’s a handful of simple beach restaurants sharing a magnificent view serving pretty decent meals (both fresh seafood and meat). My first advice is: If you for some reason insist on staying at Cambos Village don’t dine there – go to the beach restaurants.
Cambos Village is a large resort with three pools, a restaurant, a bar, a lousy “playground“ and a quite good “Mini club” where kids can paint, read books, play games etc. Some of the rooms have great terraces with beautiful views against the sea yet the interior is very tacky. Both the rooms and the place in general seem pretty rundown. And one very important thing – if you are travelling with small children make sure you bring your own travel-baby bed. The bed you get from the hotel comes without madras – seriously!
The “all inclusive” doesn’t make any sense. Nothing is included – no air-condition, no beach towels, no beach chair on the beach, no games (table football etc.), no shampoo, not even a bottle of water (if you ask for it you get a glass of tab water which travel agencies advice you not to drink) – you are basically charged for everything. So all you really get for the “all inclusive” are three hardly eatable meals a day, some microwave pizza slices going under the name “snack” and cheap wine and beer.
It seems very clear that the restaurants main mission is to keep the expenses as low as imaginably possible. Every ingredient in their hideously boot camp-like decorated buffet comes from caned conserved products you thought were removed from the supermarket shelves in the early 1980’s along with lunch leftovers from the day before – no kidding. On top of that, they don’t make enough food so if you come to dinner half hour after the buffet has opened only sorry leftovers of what was pretty disgusting in the first place is left. So although we paid for “All inclusive” we were forced to go out and buy our meals at different restaurants instead.

(Even before we were evacuated way too late with wild fired only hundred yards away, ) we found ourselves in an old, badly maintained hotel.
The arrival service (handing out all-inclusive bracelets) was very very slow and old-fashioned. We had to leave our passports which ended up in us not having any during the evacuation. You have to pay extra (4EUR) for air conditioning and towels. The buffet was yesterdays left-overs warmed up. The rooms were noisy, and you were only allowed to turn the A/C when you were in the room. So every time you'd get in the room it'd be hot and clammy. Their reason was that it would be dangerous to turn it on when no one was in the room... made me feel really comfortable about having it on while we slept... NOT
The last day the pool lamp in the kiddie pool was hanging our by it's wires (!!)

I only really can appreciate the bar and restaurant staff that was attentive and friendly. I hope that this enormous wild fire will make them renovate the whole place. Cause location wise it's really not that bad!

Arrived on the 17th Septmeber and writing this review whilst still here for 2 weeks untill the 1st october 2009.

Long plane journey and laborious coach transfer over mountains after mountains with steep and uneven frightening drops!!

Rooms are very nice especially the upgraded ones which we stayed in, room number 165 - you have great sea views but very windy this time of the year so on a night time you get no sleep due to noisy wind and other guests.

Hotel resort full of Germans and other nationalities apart from the odd couple of us English.

Germans especially seem to push in alot and get served first, they also get their holidays here cheaper as searched on all the sites here but still they moan that they want more. English are not considered welcome here and the trips out are far and few between and mostly to historical parts witht he odd trip to Turkey. All the reps seem to be in high profitering and the local strive for business due to competitive reps charging too much for local trips.

Taxis are expensive at 45 euro per trip each way to the nearest town of samos called vathi about 1 hour and 30 mins away!

The Pool is freezing cold all the time and the sea rough on the feet.

The food is terrible no proper greek food typical meals are:

Breakfast - Coffee or tea, a selection of hard boiled egg, german sausage and cheeses and few cereals.
Lunch: Chips,Lasagne,pasta and salad only
Dinner: Varied with the odd moussaka and grisly meat.
Snacks: Cake or pizza, never sandwiches as specified.

Please note there are 4 Kampos sites on the Island this one is south west and not at Kokkari.

Air Conditioning is charged at 4 euros per day and towels at 1 euro per day and 10 euros each deposit.

They issue an Inclima Air conidtioning remote controller to operate the unit but but people could buy a universal Inclima remote controller and bring it with them and have air con for free.

The Laundry service is poor as they state the do iron clothes but the reception told us they don't so it is worth bring your own iron and buying washing powder/liquid at the supermarket here.

There are 3 internet units with 750 kbs download speed.

Apart from that the weathjer is variable with blue skys and cool nights.

Service is very good but english come second to the Germans!!!!!!

Drinks are priced at 1.50 per coffee
3 euros per orange juice
5 - 6 euros per alcoholic drink

Germans alos get more then the english on quanitity.

Advisable not to book throguh Thomsons as the reps don't tell the truth untill its too late - You have been warned!

Best places here are Kokkari fishing village, Ormos and Samos town!
