Ranked #2 of 37 Hotels in Pythagorion
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 22, 2013

This beautiful resort in Pythagorea has everything the resort seeker could ask for. The pool area is beautiful, with plenty of seagrass recliners, overlooking the Sea. The private beach is also well appointed, with lots of beach recliners and umbrellas. Several bars and restaurants ( although we ate in town most nights) beautiful breakfast area. The staff was not overly friendly, but the stay was pleasant nonetheless.

Room Tip: choose a bungalow if available. They have amazing sea views.

this is an amazingly beautiful resort on the island of Samos Greece in the city of Pythagorio, the rooms are spacious but the beds could be bigger for added comfort, the secluded beach is well stocked with lounges and shady umbrellas, the pool and deck area are large and clean with plenty of places to lounge around all day, it is a steep climb from the beach to the dining room so be prepared, the free breakfasts include many options and the yougurt is to die for, however, given the current economy in Greece most places on this island have much cheaper prices for food than the resort so best to go off site for dinner

Dear 201pilot,

Thank you for your lovely feedback and for selecting our Resort as your holiday getaway.

We are glad you mentioned our rooms as it gives us the opportunity to let it be known, that Proteas Blu has been under a major rennovation since 2010. We began with our Adam and Eve Spa and our Beach and beach bar Cavo Pountes, continuing with our two gorgeous a la carte restaurants P2 Theory and Θαλαsea, and our Swimming pool face lift !!

This year we built 8 beautiful suites, fully equipped including a personal pool for each. Our Bungalows are next ,before we move to the main building. Our project takes place during the winter so as not to disturb the serene holidays we aim to provide our guests.

We do hope you visit us again in the future just to see the transformation. We are very excited !!

Thank you again for your review. It is much appreciated.

Wishing you a wonderful remainder to the summer.
Sea you soon!!

Just got back from a 2 week holiday at Proteas Blu Resort.
This hotel is excellent with spectacular views wherever you are in the hotel.
The hotel is kept spotlessly clean, staff are attentive, food is excellent both breakfast and evening meals.
Lovely pool and pool area, and 2 private beaches with a very relaxing beach bar.
For those less able/walking difficulties both pool and beach are at the bottom of a very steep hill, nevertheless the hotel provides buggy transport both up and down should you require.
One thing lacking in this hotel was the absence of a mini market, where one could buy papers, toiletries etc. We had to go into Pythagorian to stock up.
We really enjoyed our holiday and Samos and the Proteas Blu lived up to our expectations

One's first sight of the hotel is one of awe with views across blue waters and islands in the distance. However one is also aware of the steepness of the site. The reception areas were spacious and clean but quite empty for the most part. Washrooms in public areas varied from good to no locks on doors and some not closing at all but all extremely clean.

The service offered by the staff was just what one would expect with a 5* rating....prompt and courteous. Buggies were on hand with willing staff to ferry you up and down the site or like us you could hire a car and use this on site as well as explore the island.
The pool is the resort's major asset with gorgeous comfy beds (with enough room for 4 people) set around the large pool on 3 sides and woven sunbeds on the other. With more shade in the area this would be my idea of heaven. Steps leading into the pool would make for an easier and more elegant way of entering/exiting the water. The jacuzzi was not available until 3 days before we left.
With great views across the bay to Turkey we enjoyed lunch at the pool restaurant on one occasion but otherwise we shopped at the local supermarket in Pythogorio and made our own sandwiches. The beach bar served a large selection of cocktails but went untested by us. A lovely place to sit and while away an afternoon or chill out after dinner.

We felt that some areas were not ready for the season with drapes not installed on the sundbeds although they may have been taken or blown down after a storm a few days prior to our arrival. The gardens were generally well maintained with just a few areas looking a bit neglected.

The breakfast menu is huge and there is something for everyone's taste; excellent. The food in the International Restaurant was buffet style but not enough simple grilled meats and fish which would have been appreciated. The main desserts tended to disappear early apart from the little sweet desserts and the icecream. No replacements for the larger gateaux which was strange as they were the most popular. The staff were great although language occasionally a barrier to requests. Dinner costs 25.50 euros which for me was rather expensive as I only eat one course. The à la carte restaurant was rarely used by anyone. The menu was quite uninspiring. The Greek night was good with a trio playing Greek music throughout the evening. For the fit there are dancing classes in the morning and you can dance along to the music during or after dinner in the evening. As we were on a B&B basis we chose to eat out 3 evenings. We would recommend 'Symposium' and 'Marista', just off the main street in Pythogorio.

The day before we left another storm hit the beach and sunbeds and several brollies were washed from their positions and the walkway to the pontoon was severely damaged. Guests arriving on theThursday would surely have felt that the beach was a bit of a let down. All in all the hotel is good, especially the service, but we got a good deal on price. I'm not sure that I would want to pay what is advertised as the 'full' price.

For the young and active the hotel and the island of Samos is a chance to experience Greek island life in a quiet and less commercial atmosphere than you would find on more popular islands....but don't tell everyone or it may change.

Room Tip: Hotel rooms maybe better than the bungalow rooms and more convenient for meals and use of the spa...

Dear Greenfingers40,

We would like to thank you for your lovely review. It is our aim here at Proteas Blu to provide our guests with as much comfort and serenity as possible and we consider the quietness of the premises a plus. It is a pleasure to know you have also enjoyed this.

You are correct in regards to the storm damage on the beach. Unfortunately the month of May was quite unstable weather wise and created a fair few problems to our outside areas. Its a shame you missed out on the completed look during the warmer months.

We would really appreciate more feedback on our a la Carte menu as you mentioned it wasn't inspiring. Our guests suggestions are sought after as we always look for any improvements that can make the resort even better. Your suggestions in regards to the pool and buffet have been noted.

From the mention of the steepness of the hill and regarding your tip at the end for convenient access to dinner, it comes to our understanding you did not use our Proteas blu buggy service.
This is most unfortunate as we do understand it can be a difficult walk up and have 2 buggies on the premises to transport our guests up and down the hill. Please take advantage of this service should you visit us again.

Thank you for your wonderful comments in regards to our pool area. This area is newly rennovated and we wanted to provide a large relaxing chaise long lounge around it so the majority of our guests enjoy the surroundings.

Please be assured your wonderful feedback on our staffs' service will be passed on to our staff.

Your review overall was a pleasure to read. It would be great to have you visit us again some time in the future.

Till then we wish you a safe summer.

Sea you soon!

The hotel is beautiful. The staff are absolutely amazing. The pool and its bar/restaurant is stunning. The beach and beach bar are delightful.

We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and that was fine. Breakfast was ok. I couldn't quite figure out why the omelette chef seemed to disappear at peak times every morning but that didn't affect me so it was nothing more than an observation. Lunch at the pool bar was good - and in a delightful setting. the evening offerings weren't quite as inspiring. We ate in the al a carte restaurant once: it was ok but didn't bother again. One glance at the Panorama restaurant was enough - we aren't big on self service for dinner. We enjoyed the 20 minute stroll into Pythagoria in the evening to sample local restaurants so the hotel food wasn't a problem.

However, there were a couple of very obvious oversights. The gardens around the pool bar were just weeds: why when the gardens everywhere else were well cared for? There was no shower curtain or glass panel so no matter how careful we were the floor got wet - and slippery. I know, I slipped and fell. No damage done but it could have been serious.

One final comment. There were some cats and kittens around the hotel: not many but they weren't neutered. They were popular with guests so why doesn't the hotel get them neutered to keep numbers down in future? So simple and everyone, including the cats, would be happy.

Would I recommend this hotel? Yes, very definitely. It's so very nearly perfect.

Room Tip: All the rooms have sea views.

Dear Tamartiger,

We would like to thank you for selecting our Resort for your holiday destination and appreciate all your lovely comments and suggestions.

Upon reading your review we thought it necessary to address the issues you have mentioned, as we find all feedback from our guests very valuable.

It is unfortunate you weren't as pleased with your cullinary experience at our gourmet restaurant ,as other guests have been. Was there something you would have prefferred that may have provided you with a better experience? We constantly renew our menus to provide our guests with a variety of flavours so we appreciate all suggestions.

In regards to the weeds around the pool area, thank you for bringing this to our attention. We have two onsite gardeners that maintain the resort premises and have not had issues in the past so if our pool area was missed we apologise for this as we try to ensure all outside areas are as beautiful as our guests would expect them to be.

We avoid having curtains and glass panels in the bathroom for aesthetic reasons however, our housekeeping staff lays floor towels on the bathroom floor daily to avoid any accidents. We are not happy to hear you slipped.

Our little mascots here are the family of cats. We like them and our guests often like to play with them and give them a little snack. A Greek island without its cats really is missing something so we let them be and enjoy their natural life. There is a team on the island that nurtures kittens twice a year to keep numbers down although we do prefer nature in its own course.

Once again we would like to thank you for all your lovely comments and are glad your overall stay was a pleasent one and you enjoyed the island. It would be great to have you visit our Resort again.

Till then we would like to wish you a safe and happy summer.
Sea you soon.

Just back from a fabulous week at Proteas Blu. The hotel is immaculate with constant work on upkeep, beach and pool furnishings and gardens. We loved the view from the Panorama roof top restaurant and had dinner there most evenings. We were satisfied with the food and also enjoyed a couple evenings out in harbour restaurants in Pythagorio.

My only suggestion would be for the pool to have walk-in steps and not just ladders.

Go, you'll love it!!

Dear TedbeachToronto,

Thank you for selecting Proteas Blu Resort for your holiday destination.

We are pleased to read such a lovely review and to know you enjoyed our premises.

It is unfortunate you didn't have the Proteas blu buggy experience to get you up the hill for dinner. We understand it can be steep, especially after a hot day at the beach so we offer the buggy service to all our guests to take them to dinner in Proteas style.

Our Restaurants are designed to offer our guests a lovely cullinary experience, along with a breathtaking view and it is our aim to provide service standards that match. Thank you for sharing your kind comments.

Should you visit us again, we hope you will also experience our gourmet restaurant P2 Theory, located just beyond the bar verandah, boasting the same breathtaking views our Panorama restaurant provides.

Also our Fish and Oyster Restaurant Θαλαsea for gorgeous elegant flavours of the sea, whilst you sit in a boat !!!

We appreciate your suggestion for the pool and would like to thank you again for your overall lovely words.

Wishing you a happy and safe summer.

Looking forward to your next visit!!
Sea you soon!

Just got back from a week's stay in Proteas Blu, what a fantastic hotel, really lovely friendly staff that couldn't do enough to help you, lovely food, wonderful spa and stunning views. The Hotels cleanliness was brilliant and its location is really good, a 30/40 minute walk into Pathagorion or a 5 minute taxi drive. We had a bungalow room which looked directly out onto Turkey and the in room facilities where better then I expected, Free WIFI, air conditioning, safety deposit box, Mini bar, robes and slippers, toiletries and internet TV along with pre pay movies which had a really good choice of current films.

We hired a car for 2 days through Thompson to get out and see more of the Island and there is quite a lot to see and do. We booked 2 trips with Thompson including a day trip to Turkey to see the ancient city of Ephesus - (which was wonderful for my partner who has never seen ancient ruins before) and our second trip was a Sunshine cruise which was also a really wonderful experience. Our crew had a fantastic sense of humour and stopped at some greats spots.
A huge thank you to Bekki our Thompson rep who booked it all for us and was so helpful through our trip and answered all our questions, such a lovely girl.

There is a note in your welcome pack about mosquitos and if you tend to be quite appealing to them I would advise purchasing some repellent or a plug in to deter them. We found a plug-in in Pathagorion no problem, so you could always purchase something once you arrive.

I would recommend that you take a watch or an alarm with you. Neither me or my partner wear watches and forgot to pack an alarm clock. You can request wake up calls from reception which we did, unfortunately, on one of the days reception didn't contact us and we woke up late which wasn't a huge problem, we just ended up setting off later then planed.

All in all, we really enjoyed our first trip to Samos, we had a fantastic time and can't wait to go back. We would defiantly stay in Proteas again.

Dear Nextbigtrip,

Reading your review has given us here at Proteas Blu great joy, as your comments have really justified all our efforts to improve constantly.

We are glad you took advantage of the day trips to Turkey. It would be a shame to be so close and not to visit.

We apologise for missing one of your wake up calls and thank you for bringing this to our attention so we can avoid a similar error in the future.

Your positive outlook on the prevention of little mosquitos will be a great help to fellow travellers! Plugs are effective and bites, this way can be avoided. However should a guest get bitten we have a full first aid kit with some sting and bite ointment that provides instant relief.

Be sure that our staff will be informed of your kind comments.

We thank you again for such a lovely review and hope the rest of your summer is just as wonderful.

Looking forward to your next visit!!
Sea you soon!
