This was our honeymoon hotel where we spent two nights and three days. We ordered mint tea but service was poor. Unfortunately, bed sheets were not changed after the first night. Dinner was delicious but a bit too late. Chimney was lit but blankets were not offered to keep us warm.

It's kind of old style furniture room. Don't live the room close to outside street, too noisy. People are friendly. Food is good. Huge backyard to let you enjoy walk around. Have beautiful pecas walk around.

We were staying just down the street, so this was the closet option for dinner. Lovely old buildings with a quant dining room, that, unfortunately, does not have a river view. I had the mushroom crepe that was fabulous, while my wife had the vegetarian spaghetti. Lovely grounds to walk around after our delightful meal.

Dear guest, On behalf of the Samari Spa Resort team, I thank you for your time to write a review regarding your experience in our luxury hotel and its high-end services. Regarding your comment about the restaurant not having a river view, we sincerely regret you were not able to enjoy the river view we do have as I guess it was by night and therefore impossible to see clearly from our gourmet restaurant. All the more as our menu has a wide-range of traditional cuisine (both national and international), as well as our buffet breakfast which has always plenty of options, not to mention organic (as you can easily read through all the very positive comments made by other fellow TripAdvisor travelers). For this reason, if you could change your 4-stars rating for a 5-stars rating, it would be great. Next time you visit us, it will be a great pleasure to suggest you to have lunch to enjoy the view, as well as to have a walk in our 5 acres gardens that will amaze you!! We look forward to welcoming you again at Samari Spa Resort in a near future. Sincerely, Dorian ROQUE Guest Relations Manager

This hotel used to be a convent so it is a lovely architectural site, there are plenty of old artifacts that used to belong to the nuns all around the hotel and the hotel itself has that antique but beautiful feeling to it. The facilities are gorgeous and the pool is very beautiful. The restaurant is also very good. However, there is a downside to it: every room (or almost every room) has this huge windows in both walls and one of them stares directly into the inner courtyard (so you see everyone while they are walking to their room and everyone can see you) and whilst the windows do have drapes, it is still very easy for anyone to see in your room as you can see out of it. The other window stares out to the outside courtyard so there is a lesser chance of people looking into your room but it still happens. Also, the wifi is not very good.

Dear guest, On behalf of the Samari Spa Resort team, I thank you for your time to write a review regarding your recent stay at our luxury Hotel, Spa & Resort. Regarding your comment about the rooms not having enough privacy because of the windows, I'm surprised to read this as it's the first time we receive this feedback, in addition our curtains are thick and do not allow anyone to see through them, and as for our Wi-Fi, depending on where you were at that time but it as an excellent coverage and networkl in all our buildings and grounds, as you can easily read through all the very positive comments made by other fellow TripAdvisor travelers. Having said that, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenients you had, and we'll be very happy to welcome you again to assist you personally throughout your stay so it is an excellent one. We look forward to welcoming you again at Samari Spa Resort in a near future. Sincerely, Dorian ROQUE Guest Relations Manager
