Sami beach hotel is a mid range offering near the lovely port of Sami Managed to get a special walk in rate and settled into a pleasant room. Ok it's not luxury but the welcome and the atmosphere was fantastic. Other guests that were checking in are regulars who return here year after year which is testament to the welcoming...

Incredibly accommodating - the family is outstandingly kind and sweet. We were only on the island for a short time and came in on a ferry from Patra, and this hotel is a short 10 minute cab drive from the port. It's relatively close to many places (for a fairly affordable cab ride) and Kyrio Dorizas gave us a little...

A 30 years old hotel owned and managed by well-known Dorizas family of Sami, Cefalonia. Best for relaxation within the heart of nature. Large and deep swimming pool with a cosy bar. Wonderful sea view. Nice beaches close to the hotel. Don't miss to meet Mr. Periklis Dorizas, the owner, and chat with him at the bar.

Part of the reason we booked this hotel was due to the trip adviser reviews. On this basis it seemed unfair not to pass on our experiences as well. From the moment we arrived at this hotel the family could not have been more friendly or welcoming to us. Nothing has been too much trouble throughout our stay and I...

All I can say is it is the most amazing little Hotel ever in every aspect. The setting is breath taking and the people that own it and their staff are just lovely. The front sea views are a must. Thanks all for once again a lovely holiday for me and my family. The Olive and Bobby and Co.

What can I say about this wonderful hotel that has not already been said 100 times - gorgeous location...just a 15 minute walk along the beach into Sami, spotlessly clean - linen and towels changed daily, nice breakfast, great sea view rooms, I could go on and and on but, the thing that makes it really stand out is the...

A very relaxing break. A great pool, with attractive garden surrounds makes for a tranquil and peaceful stay. To the front a wonderful sea view and to the rear, the contrast of the mountains. The Dorizas family and their staff bowl you over with their warmth, generous nature, attentiveness,hospitality and sense of fun. Some of the guests not only return...

Sorry Trip Advisor contributors, but this cannot be the best value hotel in Sami. The hotel is 30 years old and is beginning to look a bit tired. The owners clearly have a policy of compensating for this with an exceptionally friendly approach. Unfortunately this can sometimes verge on a holiday camp atmosphere. I particularly didn't enjoy being told to...

Nice loacation - very tidy and clean. Do not be fooled by the picture - swimming in sea is a short walk away. Ideal if you have no wish for wifi use - the wifi is the poorest hotel wifi we measured in Greece this summer. 0,3 mbits... Every guest was told to keep smiling every morning - a new...
