This hotel was recommended to us by a travel agent in Kalloni, Lesvos. Although she herself had never visited Samos or stayed at the hotel, she thought that it might be a good choice for us, based on the feedback she had received from other travelers. And she was right.
After arriving at Samos from Mytilini, we were tired and a bit confused about driving directions to Samos Bay from the harbor. Once we checked into our room, though, the beautifully sited hotel continued to grow on us, as we explored its offerings: i.e., the spectacular view of the bay, wonderful private balcony, clean and well designed rooms, an attractive lounge area with outside terrace, and the magnificent dining area with an array of outstanding services.
The most important aspect of our enjoyment, however, came from the dedicated, hard-working, professional, and attentive staff. The desk manager did a wonderful job in booking us into the hotel and coordinating all of our lodging needs. The waitstaff made our stay memorable. In fact, we can heartily recommend the hotel to others because of our superlative experience.
We also want to make note of the Monday evening Greek night. It was terrific! The musicians were excellent, as were the dancers. And more, both the musicians and dancers made every effort to include customers in the fun experience, enhancing enjoyment of the event. We're musicians, leading a 30-piece Hellenic and Near-Eastern orchestra, so our critique of the music and dance carries additional weight. Staff ensured that every diner was served promptly that evening and their own demeanor added to the special "kefi" of the evening. Hats off to Samos Bay!
Visitors will love the beach in front of the hotel and its proximity to the downtown area. The city center is a short walk from the hotel, ensuring that evenings at the hotel won't be in a noisy city location. Prices are reasonable, and there are numerous great eateries in the area. Another attractive feature of this Samos hotel is that the island itself is a good launching point for travel to other Aegean islands and Asia Minor.
In all, the whole experience receives high marks from us, and we travel often to Europe. On our journeys to Greece, we try to visit different areas of the country, but we expect that Samos will be a repeat trip for us. Bravo!
