We have just returned from a week's holiday at the Anthis Studios. As other reviewers have said, this is not the place to go if you are after 5* luxury. It is also not a place to stay if you don't like / are allergic to cats! But it is a friendly relaxing place which gets you close to the people of the island. Costas and his family are lovely people who want their guests to have a good time. Nothing is too much trouble - we were catching an early ferry to Patmos and wanted to get a taxi to Pythagorion. Costas wouldn't hear of booking us a cab, but took us himself and would not take any money for his petrol.
The poolside bar has good value food if you don't want to walk to Chora or Pythagorion, or you can DIY in your small kitchen which makes for real flexibility.
Take good walking shoes for the hike into town. Not too far and all on the flat. And use the local buses to Samos and beyond - very cheap and efficient and more fun than coach tours. Going to Patmos by the Flying Dolphin is another good trip and easy to do.
This is certainly an island and a lodging place we would return to and recommend to others.
