When I first arrived I thought how charming. Then once I checked in I was furious. It seemed like charging for a towel and no internet access were absolutely petty charges. Then I did not have hot water. I felt like changing hotels immediately. I don't appreciate being nickeled and dimed. That being said once the hot water issue got corrected (the next day) it was an extremely central location to Samara beach. The restuarant was excellent and I would reccomend dining there to anyone staying in Samara Beach. The staff is very nice and kind. I found out about their policy on charging for towels was to encourage people to be environmentally friendly. While I don't completely think that this is the entire reason, at least it is a reason that I can get onboard with perhaps charge a dollar more per room and include one beach towel per stay. There was one pool that was fairly small. Another pool was more like a water feature than a pool and is adjacent to the bar. If I was going back to Samara I would most likely stay there again. So after a rocky start it won me over and I can't reccomend the resturant enough.
