This beautiful hotel is kept by a family, who cares from morning to evening to get your stay as pleasant as possible. They really contribute to make your vacation a period of good-feeling.
There are a lot of nice places to eat traditional greek food in the vicinity.

Have just returned after spending 10 wonderful days at this Hotel with my sister-in-law. As previous reviews have stated, the family and other members of staff take customer care to the limits. The Hotel is very comfortable as were the rooms, everything you needed, the breakfast was very good, real coffee!, lovely gardens, good size swimming pool and wonderful views to Ithica. There are plenty of restaurants in Sami 10 15 mins walk and a few others nearby. The Island is very beautiful and unspoilt hasn't changed since my last visit 15yrs ago. I would definitely
love to return to Cephalonia and the wonderful Sami Beach Hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms have lovely views, garden or seaview.

We stayed here in June for 2 nights. I agree with all other reviews. The family were absolutely charming and nothing was too much trouble. I had an ear infection and after helping me to put drops in that they had and that did not help they offered to drive me to the local hospital. So kind.The only down side for us was that the hotel was full of English. We like to be surrounded by locals if possible. Of course it depends on what you like on your holiday. Apart from that it is a lovely hotel. Clean, quiet, nice pool and very good breakfast.

Room Tip: We had a lovely room at front overlooking sea with balcony.

This small hotel was delightful. We were greeted like old friends!
It is a family run hotel, not flashy. It is very close to the sea but also has a good size pool.
Plenty of restaurants a walk away in Sami.

The most wonderful hotel in the most beautiful location - our heartfelt thanks to this genuinely warm and welcoming family who simply could not do enough to make our stay perfect from the moment we arrived to the moment the taxi arrived to take us back to the airport.

Yiannis, Maryann and Periklis made us feel so welcome, we felt like part of their family after only one week! Their hospitality is so generous and warm - nothing is ever too much trouble.

I have never experienced anywhere in any industry a business where every single member of the team is 100% enjoying their job. Every time we saw any member of staff, whether it was in the laundry, cleaning the rooms, tidying up the garden, serving breakfasts, serving drinks at the bar - they were all so happy.

It was my daughter's birthday while we were there and as a surprise they decorated the table and arranged flowers, champagne and cake for breakfast and all came in to sing and wish her happy birthday.

The hotel is not as modern as some, but this in no way detracts from the pleasure of staying there. Its very simplicity creates a charm and character that you fall in love with.

It's a 15 minute walk along the beach into Sami, but there are a couple of excellent tavernas in the local village just a couple of minutes walk away.

It was a real privilege to be a guest at the Sami Beach Hotel, a very special place - we will definitely be back next year, if not before!

Room Tip: We had a garden room on the ground floor at the rear of the hotel overlooking the beautiful gardens...
