This hotel is amazing. The welcome you get from the Doriza family is second to none. Every member of staff is extremely helpful - from locking yourself out of your room to trying to get some nail glue!!! - they go out of their way to help you. We only had a week here and it just isn't long enough!... More

My family only spent one night here "on spec" as we toured the island before heading home and wished we'd had longer to stay. Great location, our room was simple but clean and well equipped - decent bathroom, good air-con, sweet little balcony with lovely sea views and the staff could not have been friendlier, more welcoming or more helpful....

Another fantastic visit to the Doriza family at Sami Beach Hotel and another fantastic holiday. This time we stayed for 10 days and the minute we got to the hotel we both were in instant relaxation mode. We were greeted with a huge smile from Maryanne and glass of Ouzo. 😀. We had asked prior to our visit for the... More

After visiting regularly from 1999 had sadly not been back since 2010 and have spent the last year in anticipation of my return. What can I say, it was like coming home as a long lost relative. The welcome and love shown by Maryann, Yiannis, Periklis and the staff was just wonderful and I felt as if I had never... More

What a great hotel with the loveliest of owners and staff. I am chronically ill and during my recent visit I was so well looked after it was humbling. Maryann, Yiannis and Periklis - as did the staff, made me feel even more like one of the family - as they do with everyone. They care so much that your... More

We stayed at Sami Beach Hotel with friends who had been there before. We enjoyed every minute of our 8 days. Between the friendly family who own it and the beautiful surroundings, it was a wonderful week. There is much to see and do in Kefalonia although you do need a car. Car rental is inexpensive and hassle free and... More

We were the only youngsters at the time we visited Kefalonia, besides kids. Sami is a quiet town and perfect for a relaxing holiday. It was nothing like Zante (Laganas) where we have also visited - there was a big contrast. We loved the family-style management and friendly staff regardless their duties (many of them take up multiple duties). Despite... More

Spotlessly clean and comfortable room. Simple but excellent buffet breakfast. Nice swimming pool with good loungers and brollies and a pool bar. Our fifth visit but not the last !! Whilst the hotel only does breakfast there are umpteen very good tavernas within walking distance.

This is an absolutely wonderful location; brilliant hotel and lovely hosts evidenced by the number of people who return to stay or visit every year. I cannot recommend it enough. It is perfectly situated for key Kefalonian attractions; the views are out of this world. However more importantly the Doriza family clearly love what they do and make sure everyone... More
