“Anema by the Sea”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

I just came back from what is one of the most amazing trip I've ever had and mostly because of the anema hotel. We planned this trip for my friend wedding that was hosted by the hotel and the restaurant and everything was perfect..from the food they served to the service from the waiters and the amazing tips from the owners nothing would have been the same without them. The rooms are clean the personnel is nice the food is amazing and everything with a personal aspect that other hotel don't seem to have. You literally feel like home. I would strongly suggest everyone to choose the anema by the Sea hotel and hopefully be back next year!!

Yiasou Maximilien...we're so happy you had a nice time! It was such a pleasure meeting you and perhaps we may even meet up again at the opposite end of the globe...in North America this time! Such a treat for us to be part of this lovely gathering of friends and family. We send our warmest regards from Samos!!! Thank YOU very much!

I would return to Anema by the Sea Hotel for many reasons, but probably not for the reasons most would imagine. I travel frequently for work and stay in some of the best 5 star hotels in Europe.
All those hotels are fancy, but they are also impersonal, cold and very very expensive.
The Anema by the Sea Hotel isn't what anyone would call fancy by any means, but what it lacks in glimmer, it more than makes up in warmth, hospitality, and comfort. The reason I found the Anema enjoyable is because the owners go out of their way to make each guest feel like one of the family.
The hotel offers a breakfast with a selection of fruits, jams, and cheeses from their family garden. There is also a large swimming pool as well as easy access to the sea which is only a 3 to 5 min walk away. My husband and I had a seaview room with a kitchen, and a lovely nice sized balcony. I fell asleep each night to the sounds of the sea.
There is a restuarant nearby which serves a large selection of local tradition dishes. The surrounding area offers museums, pottery makers and a popular local winery.
I would recommend renting a car and touring Samos. There are several car renting services nearby which offers a pick up and delivery service to the hotel. The hotel also had free wifi and laundry facilities, a big plus for me.
The Anema by the Sea Hotel is a family runned hotel that specialized in making their guest feel welcomed, comfortable and relaxed at reasonable rates.

Amazing review! Thanks so much! Lots of helpful tips, too. For us, it's always a delight meeting new people, exchanging thoughts and experiences and most of all doing our best to make them feel happy and comfortable. Perhaps, this is the right moment to announce a fresh transition to "Anema Guest House". A simple but warm, welcoming home away from home. Looking forward to next time we meet! It was a true pleasure sharing special moments with you.

Stayed here with my family for four weeks and had a wonderful time . The rooms were great value and were cleaned every day . Nothing was too much trouble for the owners Demetra and her husband or the hotel staff.The pool area was a relaxing place for having drinks and the restaurant in front of the hotel on the waters edge had delicious food .The port was within walking distance if arriving by ferry but to see everything that Samos has to offer you will need a car . There is car hire nearby. If staying in Karlovasi the Anema is a good choice .

Room Tip: Ask for a front room with balcony and sea views .

A home away from home with all-embracing Greek hospitality, warm and continuous as the cloudless-sky that greets you each morning – Paradise by the sea with owners who treat you like family, where service with a smile is service with heart. Dine on home-style savory Greek cuisine at sunset while the Aegean serenades you. Karlovasi is away from the rush and tourist over-load, offering balance between adventure and calm. The Anema is a dreamy place in comfortable, cozy clean rooms -- close to all amenities – stroll on stone pathways by potted-annuals, perennial-beds, lemon, olive and grape trees, and a welcoming taverna on the way to unique shops, or be inspired walking the scenic sea-path to Patomi beach where time stops. Relax in the endless-blue where sea meets sky. Excursions can be arranged by knowledgeable staff: experience local gems, Samos Island treasures,or Turkey tours! Whether you travel alone, with others, or to a workshop, you will be amazed by the Anema! I experienced the Anema through a Writer’s Workshop – it was like a summer camp you never want to leave. Leadership and camaraderie were fresh as the sea breeze through the open ceiling to floor windows overlooking the Aegean. The room pulsated with mingling muses as much as with the heart of the décor. Cheers to Owners: Diamantis and Demetra, and to Bobby and Niem and the rest of the staff!

Room Tip: One of the best -- centre -- sea view

This is the best hotel to stay in while visiting Samos. The staff at the Anema are incredibly welcoming, responsible and loving. The rooms were very spacious and include a kitchen with a stove, fridge and plates. The internet connection worked really well especially in the rooms. You can easily walk into town or to Potami Beach. Breakfast and dinner are delicious and always served with enthusiasm and great care. You never have to worry about going hungry, either, since the meal portion sizes are suitable for any appetite. I stayed at the Anema for 14 nights and I felt as if I never left home. The staff go beyond expectation and accomodate you with anything you need. There are several day excursions you can do on and off the island and the staff are more than willing to help you plan these trips. This is truly a wonderful place to stay if you are looking for comfort, hopsitatlity and endless memories.

Excellent family run guest house hotel. Toula and Diamond are amazing hosts. The restaurant food is the best, they use wonderful fresh vegetables and fresh fish. The beach in front of the hotel is quiet and safe. Our grandchildren enjoyed the tennis court, pool and games. We loved our sea view balcony and spent lovely mornings with our coffee there. Having the grandchildren with us we liked having a kitchenette for some of our meals. The hotel is located close to the port with tavernas and coffee shops to enjoy and a supermarket for snacks and groceries. They offered transfers to and from the port.

Room Tip: Seaview rooms are the best...also corner balconies are more spacious
