This was our second stay at Sami Beach hotel, what a lovely place to stay, the management and staff give 100% to all their guests. Regarding the COVID pandemic, we felt safe as the safety measures were all in place. We would like to thank Marrianne, Yannis, Spyros Roula and staff for a warm welcome and for all their kindness and care shown to us during our stay. We are looking forward to see you all next year from Ian and Carol

Perfect ! We've just returned from another stay at Sami Beach Hotel and I can confirm it's as good as ever, not even the current Covid Pandemic can disrupt the high level of service you'll receive here. We felt very safe in and around the hotel, masks are worn by all staff and guests, social distancing is practiced and hand sanitizer readily available in numerous locations, they really do make sure everyone's safe so if you want a Hotel that takes its responsibilities seriously in order for you to stay safe this place will suit you perfectly. The hotel staff are also very helpful when it comes to arranging your Airport transfers, it's roughly a 45 minute drive and the views are beautiful throughout the journey, the cars are air conditioned, the drivers are extremely helpful and will answer any questions you may have about the Island. You can also Hire a Car at the Hotel if necessary, just speak to the staff, tell them how many days you want it for and everything gets arranged for you, your relaxation is paramount to them, they all go that extra mile to ensure all your needs are catered for during your stay, your relaxation is their priority. Breakfast is superb and tasty snacks are available from the outdoor Bar during the day , if you're feeling energetic you can walk along the coastal path to Sami itself in 20-30 mins, take in the views while waking and explore the numerous Tavernas/Restaurants it has on offer. For those who are less mobile or simply prefer not to walk a Taxi service is available. The drive would take less than 10 minutes. I have so many good things to say about this Hotel, it's the top rated Hotel on the Island and it's clear to see why, every member of staff is special, they all smile and greet you with genuine warmth, they work hard and provide a superb service, they really do deserve all the praise they receive. Heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you, we look forward to seeing you all again next year. PS. I'm happy to answer any questions potential guests may have about the Hotel, please feel free to message me if necessary :)

If you are planning on going to Kefalonia, I strongly recommend you to stay in Sami, at Sami Beach Hotel, for sure. My wife and I just wanted to relax by the pool, looking at the beach, feeling fresh wind and having some drinks. We didn´t expect the care the staff would take with us. The staff are very friendly and helpful, starting with Mr. Spyros, the owner, always concerned about our well being. Many options for the breakfast, where you can find local sweets, season fruits and, of course, true Greek yogurt. At the pool bar, refreshing drinks and great food to taste. The pool is extremely clean and seems brand new. The garden is carefully treated and looks beautiful. The room has a comfortable bed, safe box, minibar and a good bathroom. The beach is right in front, just a few steps far. Moreover, you can rent your car at the hotel, an automatic one (you´d better rent an automatic because of the hills), with very good rates and in really good conditions. After all, it was an unforgettable trip and, besides astonishing beauty of the beaches, Sami Beach Hotel and its staff made it even more special. Alex and Paula

A huge thank you to Spyros, Roula and family and all the staff at Sami Beach. We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in these strange and uncertain times. The level of service provided is fantastic and this sets you apart from the rest! The hotel is in a great location which means it is not essential to hire a car, unless you want to do a lot of exploring. The beds are very comfortable. The sea view rooms are highly recommended, with stunning views across to Ithaca. Plenty of good tavernas within walking distance. A beautiful and peaceful place. Lovely memories. We will be back!

It was so sad that our friends due to illness weren’t able to join us this year at SBH - but the welcome we always get so makes up for any disappointment....a strange year and we were so grateful that the hotel took the chance to open so late in the season. Our week with you was again so special and we love you all and your wonderful staff. The cyclone was a disaster and we are so upset that Sami and other areas took the brunt of the storm - our hearts are with you all......the coast of Lourdata was nowhere near devastated as the damage we have seen.... As always the room, pool, bar and staff are exceptional- as are Yannis, Marieanne, Rhula and the family manager Spiros. We love and respect you and so look forward to seeing you next year - sent as always with our love xxx
