“Traditional Greece- Paradise!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Samson's Village is by far the most beautiful place I have stayed in in Greece. Santorini itself is gorgeous with its white-washed cliffs and amazing architecture. But Samson's Village made our weeks stay complete in every way! Its beautifully traditional with it's white and blue domed studios and apartments and lagoon style pool. Its array of colourful flowers, outdoor sofas, mix-matched deck chairs and comfortable loungers made the place.

There is a pool bar which offers refreshing drinks (beer, wine and spirits all around 3 euros), coffee (2 euros) fresh juices and breakfast (4 euros per person from 8.30-11.30). We enjoyed many beers but never ate breakfast as we enjoyed using our personal kitchenette (complete with 2 ring hob, fridge/freezer, sink and all cooking utensils) we did see other people eating breakfast however and it looked yummy!!

Samson's village is located about a minutes walking distance from the beach (black sand) where deck chairs can be hired from approx 5 euros (for 2 with umbrella) if wanted, the sand for us was just as comfortable ;-). Perissa is full of tavernas, bars and restaurants, but we particularly enjoyed the variety along the beach front and didn't once have a bad meal.

We also visited Fira and Oia where we ate and watched the breathtaking sunsets, which many flock to see. There are hundreds of shops and 'secret' passageways lined in cobble stone to explore. Public transport arround the island is fantastic, and having expected a stuffy old bus was amazed to see that the buses were actually fully air-conditioned coaches!! The journey to Fira takes approx 20-25 minutes and from Fira other destinations can be reached. The latest bus back from Fira to Perrissa was at 23:00. Be warned that the coaches get very full and you can be standing- not a problem for us but for elderly people or families with young children this could cause a bit of a problem (im sure however people wound be friendly enough to give up their seat :-)

We hired a quad bike from the recommended Mikes Bikes, costing us 15 euros a day. This was awesome and we got to explore so many hidden parts of the island- I really recommend this!

We stayed in room number 35. It was lovely- containing kitchenette, comfortable double bed and a basic shower room. The room was spacious enough for 2 people and we enjoyed many glasses of Santo Wine on the balcony!

I could not finish this review without mentioning John. He was absolutely fantastic and although the manager of Samson's Village, does absolutely everything with the help of the two cleaners! He does not stop and truly does everything in his power to ensure you are happy and enjoying your time on the island. He is better than any travel rep I have ever met. He recommended restaurants, excursions, bike rental, best places to see the sunset etc. He also drove us to and from the airport and greeted us from start to finish with his smile and enthusiasm.

We will not hesitate to book Samson's Village again in the future and I would recommend it anyone!

Today we leave Samsons village headed for our next island, Naxos. We are slightly worried that Samsons Village has set the bar too high!
The hotel is perfectly located between the shops and the beach. The bus stop at the end of the road provides a regular service to Thira, taking approximately 20 minutes. From Thira you can then take another 15 minute bus to Oia!
Our room was absolutely huge and extremely clean. Cleaners came every day!
The pool area is quiet and clean, and breakfast great value for money.
The aircon, safety deposit box and transfers were all free of charge!
All in all could not recommend more highly!

My family stayed here during a trip through the Greek Islands, and this was the best place that we stayed at! The premises is beautiful, very nicely laid out and kept clean. The pool area is nice and looks great when lit up at night. Everyone who works there is extremely friendly and helpful - they really made us feel welcome and did everything in their power to make sure that we were comfortable and happy. The hotel is located right next to a gorgeous black sand beach and in walking distance of bars and grocery stores. We will definitely come back here next time we visit Santorini, and would recommend all other travelers to do the same!

Room Tip: There are rooms closer to ground level and rooms on higher levels. The higher-level rooms have beaut...

Samson is a lovely small village of apartments with separate entrances, terraces, stairs and balconies. It looks very clean and picturesque. Our apartment had two terraces, one of which stood the deck chairs for sunbathing in privacy.
Have a great beautiful swimming pool, but we were never, because Perissa beach was just around the corner.
For the week of our stay in Santorini we travelled by car the entire island and all the beaches and I can say that Perissa is the best of all. Here the calm sea, plenty of tavernas on the beach, clean and not crowded.
John is a wonderful person, he is ready to assist you on any occasion: he met us at the airport and drove us to the port when we swam to the island of Crete.
Near the apartments you will find a supermarket, bakery, car rental and tour operators. Here there are no problems with Parking and excellent WI-Fi.
This is a great place for those that appreciate the tranquillity and comfort with a small budget.
I will definitely recommend this place to my friends, going to visit Santorini.

House host is very nice and a handsome guy. This is a good place for couples or families on vocation. Swimming pool is very good and my room is served with a kitchen. Room is very great and large enough. It is decorated modernly.
