“Pleasantly Surprised - I want to return!”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

My husband and I were THRILLED with our apartment at Scorpios. We stayed here for 4 nights (how we wished we could stay instead of traveling onward to Chios!) and just loved loved loved it. The hosts were kind beyond belief and very generous. When the male owner (I forget his name!!!) showed us our ground level apartment, my husband noted that there was a plum tree right outside of our patio. The owner said, "Oh yes! You like? Eat! Eat!"

We loved our apartment. We got a cheaper room (still had fully stocked kitchen and sitting area) and it was without AC, which was actually ok. We slept with the windows completely open (no screens - the only drawback - but we only had mosquitos one night) every night, and even in late July, it was comfortable for sleeping.

It is a 4 Euro cab ride to and from town, but it is also completely walkable if you don't mind a few hills (I believe it is roughly 2 km to town, perhaps a bit longer). We rented an ATV for 3 of the 4 days - there is a parking lot right across from the apartments. It is nice that it is outside of the busy port town, but also not completely isolated.

Our apartment also included a clothesline and pins in the patio, which was perfect, as we were there during the halfway point on our 2 week trek and needed to do laundry.

Pool area is lovely and deck chairs and towels are provided (although towels for the beach are not provided, so bring your own!).

In all, we just LOVED Scorpios - comfortable, clean, friendly, and a great location. We loved the island of Samos 100%, and Scorpios Apartments was certainly one of the reasons why we fell in love with it!

Room Tip: Request a room with AC if you need it --- I think the ones on the second floors only have them.

We had booked at Scopios hotel for 7days. Once we arrived at the hotel, nobody was there. We had to get back to the town, buy a calling card, find a working telephonic cabin and call the owner. There, she answer that her husband was at the house in the back and they were waiting for us... First lie. Once there, we went to our room and we were disapointed. On their website, there is no picture of the bathroom wich is in decomposition neither pictures of the renovation in the backyard where the pool is. We didn't like the room and the place at all so we tried to make an arrangment with the owner. We were ready to accomodate her for a couple of days. We argued for a long time and she refused. We decided to stay there anyways. Once our luggages in the room, we realize that the room was very dirty : dirt sport on the bathroom, room, closet walls. Stains of the sheets. Spider's web al over the place. There was no way we would have slept there. In the end we paid 500 euro, we never slept a night there we found 2 hotels with view of the ocean bigger inpecably clean for less money (Nefteli and Penelope's suite). While talking to people in the island about our story, everyone told us the same thing : ''we fell on the wrong people and they've done similar things to other guests''. Whe have been 4 times in Grece. Whe have visited 14 islands and some of the main land and we have never experienced something like that.

We have stayed at Scorpios twice so far, this year the place was our starting point of our dodekanese island hoping itinerary. We love relaxing in our balcony or by the swimming pool enjoying the wonderful view. The property is squeaky clean and tidy throughout, located in a quiet area and in close proximity to the town centre. Parking space is available and for our sightseeing tour, we were even given a rented car for free!

We stayed at Scorpios Studios during the last week of July 2005 - just before the school holiday season. We've used the pool/bar facilities at Scorpios on two previous holidays to Samos, when staying at a nearby hotel in Kalami.

The pool is maintained to an extremely high standard - very clean and appealing. The sun loungers are of a high standard and the view from the end of the pool over the bay is, to be honest, amazing !

The bar area is all you would want and drinks and snacks are freshly prepared whenever you want by the very friendly owners.

The only disappointment was that, during our visit, as there were few other people staying there, a very noisy TV was often to be heard blaring out from the bar area. When more people are around, the owners put on very relaxing background music which we felt really added to the atmosphere.

To present a rounded view of the apartments, you should realise that:

Although the rooms are reasonably spacious and most have fabulous views, the standard of the bathroom/shower was very poor even by basic Greek standards. Looks like no money has been spent in this area for many years !

Scorpios Studios are located up a very steep hill above Samos Town. This is a benefit in that they are away from the noise and bustle of Samos Town itself. Bottom line - you will need taxis or better, hire a car and make sure you explore around the island. There are SO many wonderful places to visit.

Please don't take this as a negative review - as a base for a relaxing holiday on Samos, the Scorpios Studios are an excellent choice !
