Just returned from wonderfully relaxing stay at this hotel, quiet peaceful location with great sea views . It was half term week & although hotel full it did not feel like it, always plenty of room around the pool - amazing sunbeds - four posters! Staff very attentive, always service with a smile, the pool barmen, there with towels before you had hardly chosen sun bed, at breakfast, constantly clearing empty plates. Good breakfast selection, recommend the omelettes cooked to order. Great room with good sea view, comfortable bed, good mosquito mesh doors so didn't need air con on at night & bonus could hear the sea!
We had not booked transfer from hotel thinking we would get taxi from airport (approx. 50 euros each way) but on arrival enquired at Europcar desk about hire car & secured car for whole week for 175 euros. Because of geographical coastal location of Sami on the island we were central and able to explore both north & south easily on different days. Sami harbour was good for restaurants, we ate in virtually different one every night and never had a bad meal, all friendly proprietors & very reasonably priced.
Will definitely return
