“Gagou Beach: Great food and view; rocky beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2009

We stayed in Samos (Vathi) as a jumping-off point to Kusadasi/Ephesus, Turkey. Samos doesn't have much for beaches, but Gagou Beach is about the best you'll get within reasonable walking distance of Samos (15 minutes' walk). The Gagou Beach Hotel had wonderful views of the bay from every room. The hidden attraction, which you don't get from the promotional material, is that the food is great. The room comes with breakfast and an evening meal, which is served at 7:30 on the verandah overlooking the bay. We were there three nights and the food was various, plentiful and well-prepared.
You can get a day at the beach just below the hotel, although it's a pebble beach at best. The stretch of beach farthest from the hotel (maybe 100 yards away) is the best stretch of pebbles; the beach closest to the hotel is composed of stones about the size of your fist, and walking on them is wobbly at best.
The rooms themselves are modest, but all have a view and a porch with table and chairs. This is a good choice if you have a few days in Samos and want some beach time in addition to visiting Ephesus

We lucked into this hotel as we hadn't planned on staying here. It has a lovely view of the bay. Is close enough to walk to the town (10 minutes) and has a great beach. The kids swam all day while I slept on the beach under one of their umbrellas. We walked to town to bring back Italian food. Lunch in the restaurant was great. We tried Ouzo on the house. Free wifi and gracious hosts.

This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. When we arrived the friendly staff welcomed us with a free drink. The room with 2 very comfty beds and sofa was quite big and cute, it had bathroom with tub, TV, fridge and A/C. It was also very clean. The balcony view was amazing, looking right at the turquoise sea (all rooms have sea view), sunsets were priceless. The beach is only 10 meters away. Breakfast was just too die for. Anything you could imagine was there. Dinner was at the restaurant right next to the hotel, quite simple but tasty, you could always find something for your own taste. The hotel is situated about 15 mins away of walking from Samos town, on a quiet spot. The only thing missing was the pool and it'd be perfect. I would go back to this hotel in a second!

stayed there during high season for the honeymoon.

The staff was friendly though lacking language skills except for a few memorized lines. There is a great beach within 10 meters walk. Great sea-view from all rooms. Modest but clean rooms. breakfast was not that good. Close to the city center (vathy). almost the best in this remote quiet and adorable greek island.
