It was so sad that our friends due to illness weren’t able to join us this year at SBH - but the welcome we always get so makes up for any disappointment....a strange year and we were so grateful that the hotel took the chance to open so late in the season. Our week with you was again so special and we love you all and your wonderful staff. The cyclone was a disaster and we are so upset that Sami and other areas took the brunt of the storm - our hearts are with you all......the coast of Lourdata was nowhere near devastated as the damage we have seen.... As always the room, pool, bar and staff are exceptional- as are Yannis, Marieanne, Rhula and the family manager Spiros. We love and respect you and so look forward to seeing you next year - sent as always with our love xxx
Just returned from our third holiday to Sami Beach- fantastic. The setting, vibe and welcome from some of the nicest people you will ever meet makes this a very special place! What’s also unique is that the hotel guests all seem to be like a little returning community, chat and mix, or chill and switch off and get mesmerised by the view of the neighbouring island of Ithaca and sweeping bays to Sami and Agia Afemia. I won’t mention the challenges that the Sami Beach have faced this year especially the last few days, but we will be back in 2021- Yammas!
It would have been so easy for the owners and staff of The Sami Beach Hotel to have decided not to open at all this year ( given the strict requirements to adhere to COVID-19 precautions). We are so grateful to you all for the care and thought you put into the organisation of the day to day running of the hotel - which allowed us to feel safe yet hardly impacted on the quality of our holiday experience. We had a truly wonderful time , which was much needed after 5 months of almost total lockdown. We felt less at risk of Covid in Kefalonia than we do at home; this was in no small part due to the thoughtful organisation of all the tourist amenities- beaches, restaurants, bars etc. Thank you Spyros, Roula and all your team at the Sami Beach - we really appreciate the trouble you went to in offering a safe holiday experience. We look forward to returning next year!…
During the middle of a pandemic, Spyros and colleagues worked hard to keep a meticulously clean and well-organized hotel. A beautiful location, right by the sea. There is no dinner served, but there are a couple of nearyby excellent tavernas, and Sami itself is a pescatarean delight.
Had a week there in August 2020 with 2 kids . Good experience, friendly staff, room ok, hotel is well located about 10-15 mins walk away from the main village of Sami with its harbour and interesting yachts on view, lots of waterside restaurants. Quite a quiet place ideal for relaxing time. Nice water side restaurant five mins walk to the north of the hotel also. Good pool , and surrounding area and food available in day. Breakfast provided. Ocean view is worth it for great view over the sea , which is dominated by neighbouring island of Ithaca. Boat trips available. Taxi airport transfer available 55 euro. Antisamos beach is a short taxi ride away to the south, worth it for a day. Sami beach v much recommend.
