“Good accommodation, great restaurant on the seafront, friendly and helpful staff.”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

We travelled to Samos for a friend's wedding and stayed at the Amena. The location was perfect - the hotel is set back slightly from the seafront. As well as the hotel, there is a restaurant and bar on the sea front which is part of Amena and as guests we received 10% discount on the bill. The standard of the food was excellent. Perfect setting on the beach and not too far to walk from the port which also has lovely restaurants. The walk to centre of town is about 20 minutes. The hotel has a nice pool and bar. There is a children's play centre adjacent to the hotel - this was closed as we travelled during school time, but the facilities looked very good for young children. The room standard was good. The staff were helpful and friendly. I would stay here again if I return to Samos.

Every moment of my ten-day experience at Anema by the Sea last summer felt like a gift. I'd been to 13 countries in Europe and lived in 3. Yet Greece exceeded all expectations. I had the amazing opportunity to run a writing workshop for ten days at the hotel, which I am thrilled and honoured to be doing again in June-July, 2012. I can't believe my good fortune to be returning to in this idyllic setting. Rising to look out at the crystal Aegean, Turkey shimmering in the distance, left my students and me breathless each morning. Our warm, hospitable hosts provided breakfasts by the pool and fed us tantalizing Greek dishes in the evening down by the seashore. (My only complaint is I weighed too much when I got home!) They ferried us to ancient villages up the mountain, took us to pristine sparkling beaches, local artists' studios, old churches and chapels, caves, taught us Greek dancing, told us stories of each place. Every day was an adventure. In Karlovassi, on the Island of Samos, Greece entered the veins of eight delighted Canadians. Our one Greek American had always known its lure. I brought home Potami Beach stones and sand, and memories of a place so exquisite, so welcoming, despite the hardship Greece is experiencing. I came home with love for this country and admiration for its resilient people.

Our best last minute travel.
In May 2008 my wife and I bought a last minute trip to Samos in Greece and we have never regretted it.
Upon arrival we are greeted by the most beautiful smile and nice hosts. After the key delivery and a small card that will give a discount in the hotel restaurant, we go up the room which was a one-room apartment with a small kitchenette. It was good enough for the price, the balcony was almost as big as the room it self and with sea views and pool views!! perfect.
Next morning when the coffee was done, we wondered how clearly we could hear our neighbors through a door to the neighboring apartment, but here made ​​a bedspread wonders, it insulates perfectly.
Later in the evening the small card to the restaurant located on the shoreline, has to be tested. But that seems to worry the hotel manager because there was a strong wind from the sea, so he picked one of his own chips jackets, as my wife could take over the shoulders if she should feel cold, this be called service.
The lovely dinner was consumed and everyone was happy and warm.
The port city Karlovasi (with its own wine factory, almost next door to the hotel) and many small lovely tavernas, especially in the harbor, was also investigated, and here we also met many cute, warm and loving humor grate people, so we agreed that it was not the last time we were here.
As written, we might come to Karlovassi again, we bought a last minute ticket again, and this time we contacted the hotel in advance to see if it was possible to rent an apartment, and there was no problem, again a good service.
Now we have lived in the same apartment all the times we've been here, and now in July 2011 is the seventeenth time since 2008, and we have been here at all seasons, it´s still the same wonderful people, and now friends you meet in the lovely city KARLOVASI.

A ferry ride from Athens to Samos brought us to Amena by the Sea... 3:30 AM we arrived to find a smiling face and rooms at the ready for two tired travelers. Rooms was well beyond what we expected and the service and friendliness of all the staff was great. Food at the seaside taverna was extrodinary... who'd of thought two canadians would try stuffed octopus... and like it... surrounding villages, country side and hiking trails are a dream and easily accessible for all ages. The island is an amazing mix of sights sounds and vistas and in the 2 weeks we spent at the Amena a helpful and friendly staff suggested various locations to experience. Thanks to all there for making our stay so great. the Lundes Vancouver B. C. Canada

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Anema for 5 nights in August. The Anema is located in the town of Karlovasi, close to the ocean and in walking distance to the popular bars and restaurants at the port. It has a nice large pool with lounge chairs and pool side bar. This hotel is a good option for Karlovasi. The rooms are large with a small kitchenette, air conditioning, TVs and all have balconies. The hotel staff is very friendly, breakfast is good for 5 euros a person and there is free wireless internet access in the lobby. If you don’t bring a laptop then use of the hotel computer is 50 cent euro for 8 minutes, though the computer is very old. The hotel restaurant across the street overlooks the ocean and has good food.

The Anema is a great hotel for families and people staying a week or longer in Samos. The hotel has a special play area for kids. I would not say that the hotel is particularly romantic and it is definitely not luxurious, only one iron and one hair dryer for the whole hotel. The only real complaint about the hotel was the bathroom. The bathroom had a faint sewer smell and there was a note above the toilet paper roll that said “please do not throw paper down the toilet”. While throwing used toilet paper in the garbage may be common for some Europeans, Americans should be forewarned of the policy. Also, the shower did not have a proper shower curtain and water went all over floor. But overall a great location and pleasant hotel.
