We have just returned from a 3 week holiday on the beautiful island of Samos.
Our stay at the Samos Sun was delightful. Monika, Tuula & Lena on reception couldn't do enough for you. They were friendly and helpful at all times.They will recommend places to visit and where to hire a car etc.
We had a small leak, which was reported. No sooner said than done, the handy-man came and attended to it.
The rooms are compact and basic (no tv as advertised) however, all you need and were kept spotless by a daily clean by the friendly cleaners.
The gym was a little disappointing, as most of the equiptment was broken, however the billiard table and table tennis was a real hit with our 11 year old daughter.
The jacuzzi wasn't constantly switched on, but if you wanted to use it, you just needed to ask at the bar and they'd put it on.
The pool and bar area is very attractive. Sue runs the bar from 10am - 6pm daily..she is lovely. Jiannis then takes over from 6pm til late. He is such fun..some might say, slightly crazy!
There is a supermarket nextdoor, which we found really convenient.
The Samos Sun is fairly close to the airport. We took a taxi upon arrival and back again, which worked out much cheaper than paying for the transfers through the tour operator.
Although we could see the airport, we weren't bothred by the odd plane coming in or out. We quite enjoyed it! There is a nice view of the sea (higher floor).
The walk into Pythagorion took approx 20-25mins. There is a path all the way along, so there is no dodging of traffic. You can also easily pick up a taxi along the way which doesn't cost the earth.
Pythagorion is very pleasant indeed, set around a little harbour. Pop in and have a meal at the Apollonia restaurant, we don't think you'll be disappointed.
If you do your research before you go, you'll find that there are many festivals that go on during summer months.We also went to the Ireon Music Festival and saw The Stranglers, which was superb.
We would certainly return to the Samos Sun in the near future.
