Samos Bay Gagou Beach Hotel
Ranked #4 of 7 Hotels in Samos Town
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Very good quality, if compared with price... Maybe the best choice in Summer time, because best beach in Samos city is near Hotel... The quality is not best but very good for a Summer holiday... (Maybe the worst but improvable property is Free WiFi (It is only accessible in Lobby))...

This hotel is located on its own tiny bay, less than a kilometre out of the centre of town, and yet it feels like it's miles away. The water is crystal clear, turquoise and indigo, and the bay is in the sun from about 10:30 am on. Our room was a good size with a beautiful balcony overlooking the water.
The staff went out of their way to be helpful. Even though we arrived after the end of breakfast service, the kitchen staff put something together for us to eat. Reception arranged us a car that arrived in ten minutes, provided maps and restaurant recommendations, and in the middle of the night when my traveling partner began taking the paint off the walls with her snoring, got me into my own room for a very low price.
I will go back the next chance I get.

Gagou Beach is by far the best in close proximity of Vathi Town, Samos, and this hotel is the best choice to take full advantage of it. The style and furniture is a bit worn out, but rooms overlooking the beach and the Vathi bay extending beyond have nice views. Breakfast has good variety, and the staff, particularly the reception manager Dimitris are great people trying their very best with a big smile in their face. Good place to stay, if you want to enjoy sun and sea by day, and take a short walk for the humble eating and nigh life of Vathi after dark.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms leveled with reception (104, 105, 106 etc) as they get noise from reception area till la...

We use the booking.com website to book this hotel. Since I was with my mom and two aunts, this hotel was a great one for the location: right by one of Samos's great beaches. Our room comes with a great view and breakfast. Breakfast is a decent one. Rooms are clean and spacious

We also had a chance to check the bar. Bartender knows what he is doing and the service is great in that matter.

Overall, we left really happy.

We always choose early in the season or late in the season to travel to the Greek Islands. For the first time we opted for a hotel not in the center of town. Now we realize this was the right choice. Only less than a half mile from the center of town but tucked away at Gagkos Beach the property was clean, great value for the money, staff extremely professional (Mr. Antzas and Ms Evgenia at the front desk were plenty helpful). Rooms are clean, the right size with a view on the beach. Late afternoon sun washes the rooms and they become much warmer, a welcome thing in the cool evenings. Food, oh yes the food and the Samos sweet wine (Nectar!) and the cocktails at the bar. Short we had a great time at the hotel.

Room Tip: The only slight problem we had in the bathrooms the shower head needs to be held all the time and th...

My wife and I stayed at the Samos Bay Hotel in September and although we seemed to be the only English visiters, it did not affect our overall enjoyment of this lovely hotel. The rooms were spacious and well furnished with great views from the balcony. All rooms have seaview.
We were Half board and the food was plentiful and varied. and the staff were helpful and pleasent. We paticularly enjoyed practising our Greek with the lovely Stamatina who always had a smile for everyone.
This was our second visit to Samos, the first being 26 years ago to celebrate our Silver Wedding anniversary. Quite a lot of changes were obvious but we enjoyed our holiday. The walk into Samos town and back was quite a drag, but Taxis were a blessing for the return.
We visited Kokkari by bus from Samos town and it is lovely as ever.
Overall we had a lovely time made even better due to the fact that our Daughter and favourite Son-in-law were located just a few hundred yards away and spent most evenings on our balcony joining us for drinks..

Gagou Beach Hotel aka Samos Bay Hotel. Just to clear up the confusion...
I would describe this place as a budget full service hotel. It has everything, but on a modest scale. Elevator, air con, late night bar, 24 hour reception, restaurant, internet stations, handicap access. The lobby is very nice, but this is not a designer hotel. The rooms were quite ordinary, not as shown on the website. That said, the best thing about the hotel is its position right at a small beach. Every room has a seaview and a balcony. Very relaxing. As noted in other reviews, it is an easy 15 minute walk to Samos town. Overall, I made an excellent choice for being in that area. I paid 60 euros a night for a small double room - fine for me traveling alone. The staff was professional, friendly, and helpful at all times. The bed was quite good and the pillows were perfect. The cons, however: weak wifi in the room, low pressure shower, water never got really hot, no safe in the room (safe deposit boxes at reception, though). The buffet breakfast was average for Greek properties. I'd say this is a very good choice for families and couples, especially if you can get a good deal.

Some people have complained that there is a small charge for sunbeds at the beach. Come on, people! That is standard all over Greece and the cost is lower on Samos than in Athens or Mykonos, for examples. If you want free, lay on your towel and bring your own umbrella.

A side note: if you are going to take round trips to Kusadasi/Ephesus, Ikaria, Patmos, etc., you would be better off staying at Pithagori, where the ferries mostly go. It is a really nice quaint little seaside town and seems to have more restaurants than Samos town. Otherwise, it is a 15 to 20 minute drive from Samos town and if you don't rent a vehicle, you will find the taxi is rather expensive. If you want a quiet and pleasant village by the sea, I also highly recommend Kokkari. I'd avoid Karlovassi, as it has no charm at all.
