Hi, we stayed at the Pericles from Aug 3 - 10th 2003, and we loved every minute.. Nikos the barman was great, the hotel was great.. We met some really lovely people.
OK.. the hotel food wasnt brilliant but so what, walk into town and sample the many good restaurants there. We found the hotels rooms to be clean and the air conditioning was a bonus, and no sign of Cockroaches as someone mentioned before.
We enjoyed it so much we are going back next year and taking our two young girls with us . We actually thought it was a very safe place for the kids to be, ie the pool was locked up after 7pm so you could relax and not worry that that kids would wander outside and go near the pool area. Everyone has different requirements for a holiday, but for us it was perfect, and we have travelled to many places in the world.
We did the same before we went to the Pericles Hotels, we read all these comments to give us an idea of the place..... and to be honest after reading most we were terrified... but we have been and can now honestly say we loved it ! sue and mark
I think the apartments that are associated with the Pericles are the nikos ? not sure of the spelling..
and the walk to town from the hotel is about 15-20 minutes... although we used to take the short cut into town from a dirt track road behind the hotel, which took us about 10-15 mins. We walked it everyday and everynight, and we found the dirt track route easier no traffic and also quite pretty.

Forgot to say you can book the apartments through Thomas Cook also !
Yes i think there are basement rooms in the hotel... the Nicos apartments can use the facilities of the hotel, but they are situation just over the back of the hotel, down a small dirt road.. but a couple of minutes walk.
There are many good restaurants in Sami, our favourite was Dolphins, excellent food and very nice people.
Ohhhh noooooo can't believe Nicos had left..
We were looking forward to meeting him again :(
We are going Aug 1st-15th after loving the place so much last year.
Anyone going the same time ?
We chose the half board option last year, but im afraid we only ate there once..
We found the many restaurants in Sami very reasonable and an excellent quality of food.
This year we have decided to opt for just bed & Breakfast.
We too are also quite sad Nicos has left, we were really looking forward to catching up with him once again
