This was our 2nd stay at Samos Sun and have to say the standard had gone down.(Possibly due to the Greek economy impacting.) Room 105 is in need of updating, broken wardrobe door handle, broken fridge door handle, missing light bulbs and light bulbs that didn't fit properly and because the window in the bathroom had been bricked up, no ventilation after using facilities. Having said that, we didn't take a kettle and reception we happy to supply one (we had taken our own mugs as the cups supplied are only small - tip - take your own mugs). They also supplied a mosquito machine, we bought our own tablets, but it didn't seem to deter the mossies, they still came in and had a feast on us! However, the cleaner was excellent, making pretty patterns with the sheets and night wear on the beds. We were there late September and were told that only 2 of the blocks were being used which is a shame because despite the downturn, Samos is still a lovely island to visit and we like being based just outside Pythagorion as it is handy for walking, cycling , car hire, beaches and lots of lovely eating places.The local beach is approx 10 mins walk away and the entertainment is facinating as it is at the end of the runway and you lie on the beach and see the underneath of the planes as they fly over. We are beach people so cannot comment on pool facilities at Samos Sun. We agree with others who comment on transfer from the airport, have a taxi, it's cheaper and quicker. The supermarket next to the hotel is handy but we found a lot of the shelves were empty, however the supermarkets in Pythagorion were well stocked and as we had rucksacks, carrying supplies back was not a problem. There are some lovely restaurants around the harbour but try some in the side streets as well as they are equally as good. The walk between hotel and harbour takes about 25 mins but the more you do it, the quicker it seems. The walk into town along the beach is lovely during the day. We flew from Manchester but understand that this filght is being stopped so the only airport to fly from will be Gatwick which is such a shame because it may put people off from going to Samos. It is a lovely island, despite the smell of sewerage along the front at Samos town! If you havn't been yet, give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
