The owner is a danger person, avoid this place for your own safety. He is looking only for your money, once we eat the dinner out of this hotel and all the things changed he did not look at at let as waiting for the breakfast, did not served at all.

We went in May for one night, out of season, so were the only guests pretty much. The owners are lovely, and keen to impress - much as most other Albanians who are some of the friendliest, nicest people we've known on our many travels. Despite being out of season, the restaurant food was delicious, good value, and better than others in the area. The little area of beach they have is in a position that means you can almost forget the endless apartment blocks that have sprung up and continue to do so along the coast, which compensates the fact it is a little walk from shops and other restaurants. The room was clean, bright and good value. A little English was spoken, but travellers should always make an effort with a few Albanian words, for the purposes of politeness, respect and a delighted response. Nothing wrong with sign language, and no reason to expect the rest of the world to speak English! I happily recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for one night last week with Albanian friends. There were only a few people at the hotel as the season hasn't started yet but we could see this hotel's potential. Our room was quite big although the bathroom was small but everything was very clean and we had a balcony with seaview. We only had breakfast at the hotel and our order was taken at the table - there was no breakfast buffet but again I imagine that was due to the fact that there were very few people there and it was low season. There is a lovely beach in front of the hotel and sun umbrellas are provided. We would like to go again and try the restaurant.

Sadly, we didn't have a great experience, which was a surprise given other reviews. So here are my words of advice: - make sure that you get confirmation in writing that you have a room overlooking the beach (there are only 5) - don't stay here if you don't have a car, unless you don't mind quite a lot of walking to get to restaurants: the hotel is really at the far northern tip of Ksamil, and there are no other restaurants very near by. - be prepared to find that no-one speaks more than a few words of English: perhaps in the July/August high season they have other staff, but when we went in September it was a bit of a struggle. Getting a beach towel involved miming! - check exactly when breakfast is: there is no written information about anything other than in Albanian (buses, wi-fi, local restaurants, meal times....) and Google Translate which told us that breakfast was at 10 must surely have misled us...? We went out for breakfasts, only to find on the last day that breakfast was served at 9. - be prepared for the menu to have shortened considerably in September. I suppose my conclusion is, this hotel may be fine in July and August, and clearly many people have had a lovely time but I wouldn't recommend it after that. They do need to up their game a bit if they are going to take international bookings through the year. Someone friendly who spoke English would have made a huge difference, but we realise that in Albania the hoteliers have the challenge that their guests are mainly Greek and Italian, so that's already two other languages they need. We found that the main bay of Ksamil, just to the south, was much more attractive and lively in September, without being overcrowded, and it has much better restaurants, especially Guvat.

We decided on a last minute holiday to Albania based mainly on the fact that it looked like it had very nice unspoilt beaches and not too many tourists. We chose to stay in Ksamil because of the lovely beaches with sand and turquoise water and we were not disappointed at all. We stayed 4 nights at Hotel Artur and had a lovely short break there. The hotel is family run and is situated on a lovely small sandy beach at the edge of Ksamil when you come from Sarandë. Ksamil is small but you have shops and lots of restaurants and bars on the coastal promenade that starts from the hotel beach. Perfect location if you want a relaxing holiday. We travelled as a couple and got a big bedroom for 4 with a balcony and seaview. The hotel and facilities are simple but all is well kept and very clean. You have all the modern comforts you need i.e. air con, wi-fi, fridge in the room, TV, sun-loungers and parasols on the beach... The owners and family are all very welcoming and provide a great service all day. The food is also excellent. Albania is great for seafood and everything we have tried from mussels, seafood risotto, seafood spaghetti to grilled octopus tasted fresh and amazing. Albania is not a rich country so if you are looking for sophistication and luxury it won't be the place for you. If you are looking for unspoilt beaches, great food, friendly people, great weather (it was 30C in June when we were there) then we definitely recommend Ksamil and staying at Hotel Artur. Butrint National Park is a short bus or taxi ride away and is worth a visit for a bit of culture and beautiful scenery.
