having just returned yesterday 28th may 2006 from the pericles we were only too sorry we had not booked for two weeks. the hotel is in a truly beautiful location, albeit a little walk into sami for restauants and harbour front. the staff were all very polite and friendley from the pool bar. hotel bar to the reception staff also. the rooms were spotless as was all the bar, pool areas and dining room. sarah the rep was a very lively informative and friendley girl, who clearly loves her job and is very good at it. although we booked no trips off as we only had the one week there she was always polite and friendly and available should we have needed her. it was a truely relaxing break with every day around 34 degrees and we hope to visit again for two weeks in september. hire a car and see more of this beautiful island. all the people in the hotel were lovely and we would definateley recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a quiete break away from all the hustle bustle and to see a working greek fishing village as sami is.wonderful time sheer bliss.
