    You pay extra to the beach although you stay in the hotel. There is no other activity in the hotel. The breakfast and the open buffet in the restaurant for lunch is not very satisfied.

    The sea was good. The hotel is walking distance to the port but it is not a convenient way to walk.

    They gave us a room at ground floor. Cleaning lady made too much noice in all four mournings despite of our complaint. One night a loud music was played till night. At breakfast they provide many kinds of food but with cheapest olive and cheese varieties.

    Close to beach, seaview, price, friendly receptionist.

    Furnitures were a little bit old and it cause a bad smell inside the room. I think the price of the room was a little bit high when you compare the other hotels in the same city.

    Location is perfect. It is in the walk distance to the Vathy city center. And infront of the hotel, there is a wonderful beach. Breakfast was very good. View of the room and the restaurant were perfect. Restaurant of the hotel was also good and prices were relevant. Room was very big and nice.

    the room was not cleaned properly and the breakfast was the poorest I ever had in my life. Two of the four nights, we had breakfast outside of the hotel. Even the tea seemed to be expired and there was no variety for selection.

    The room was big, but there was no curtain on the door, no telephone and they do not clean the room during Sundays. Also the breakfast was poor and in some cases the food was not really fresh.

    Seaside property. Gagou beach is front of the property. 2 Sunbeds and umbrella was 5 Eur at the beach. There is good restaurant for lunch and dinner next to hotel. Also you can reach the town in 20 mins by walking. Supermarket is walking distance. The view from balcony was really nice.

    - as the season began, the hotel was not ready yet (after all winter !!!) and the area underwent a reconstruction. The wall was peeling, the room was damp, the furniture was old. The air conditioning in our soom didn´t work. The staff didn´t look professional and the overall impression wasn´t good. There are better possibilities for accommodation. The pool was launched, and overall the hotel did not look too attractive - not like photos.

    - nearby the port Samos

    Breakfast not good, available parking in the public street not belonging to the hotel and not clarified in the description. Room enjoyed a bigger terrace but with two very old air-condition compressors housed in it. Entrance to the hotel via a long ramp and stairs. Details in the room and hotel need to be fixed and and have certain old furniture replaced including room doors. Cleanliness can be improved, tiny bathroom.

    Good convenient location in front of a small beach, good welcoming, nice picturesque see view from the room and common areas with beautiful sun-set.

    There is little public transportation so you have to walk to the hotel, that is like 25-30 minutes walking from the city center.

    The staff is nice and it is in front of a beautiful beach. It is a very calm place off season and it has a good breakfast.

    Furnitures are too old especially bed for 3rd person. If you are 3 get 2 seperate rooms. Bathroom is also too old, bathroom floors are always wet. After discovering the island staying in pythagorion or kokkari seems a better idea. But if you are planning to stay in vathi you could consider to stay here.

    If you are not planning to drive around the island and want to stay in one place, this is the perfect hotel. View of the rooms are awesome. Gagou beach is just infront of the hotel. Nice,clean sea. Also they give you sunbed,umbrella and extra towel for beach that costs 2 euros per day. Beach restorant have good snacks like club sandwich and fries.

    There was a cockroach and a big spider in the room, but staff helped us with intecticide.

    The location of the hotel is near to the center of Samos and not so far to most popular towns, such as Kokkari and Pythagorio. The Gagou Beach is a nice beach, nice bay and sea. The decoration of hotel rooms are old, not very luxurious but have adequate facilities. The staff is helpful and friendly. Meals, breakfasts are not so bad, not so good, above the avarage in Samos standards.

    Room was cosy but needed a few maintenance touches to reach perfection. Bathroom a bit unpractical in terms of space arrangement. Balcony door needed repair and shutters too. Aircon old but functional. Maintenance is the key word. Breakfast quality low.

    Excellent location and views on the bay from inside the room. Clean common areas. Very polite staff. Nice Greek music at night, which stopped before midnight respecting guests who prefer to rest. Just a few steps from a lovely beach.

    Breakfasts were a bit of a let-down, for example, scrambled eggs ended up a bit of a gooey mess. While sympathetic to the plight of refugees and migrants landing on the island, the increasing numbers staying at the hotel in the last few days of our two week stay there meant that service waned slightly due to the volume needing to be accommodated.

    Beautiful location and wonderful waking up to the sound of waves rustling the pebbles on the beach. A first class staff who couldn't do enough for us. Excellent meals but note my comment re breakfast. Beautiful, clean spacious room with views to the sea and the north coast of Samos and a nice spacious balcony. Excellent services. Great value hotel. Our best value for money hotel of our 6 week trip.

    Hotel is in need of renovation. There are no hooks for towels in the bathroom. There is no hair dryer in the room, you have to ask at the reception. Extremely bad wi-fi, works only in the reception area. Bad breakfast - only coffee is good and bread, yogurt and watermelon are of good quality, the rest is cheap junk. The same can be said about the dinner - it was poor, both food and the musician. Badly organised food court - people are bumping into each other trying to get food for breakfast or dinner. VERY hard water - it is almost impossible to wash the soap out. It is not worth 99 EUR per night. Taverna on the beach is of average quality too.

    Nice bay with good beach, beautiful view from the window, quiet. Helpful and friendly stuff. NIce antique touches in the halls, like old cabinet, grammophon, etc. Close to the city, possible to walk to local restaurants and a bus station. Spacious room.

    Many stairs at this hotel to get to restaurant, there is an elevator and ramp to get from Road to Reception/Rooms. WiFi in lobby location only. Shower, small - step over bath style, hand hold hose/Euro style only. Pay sunbeds only at beach, not free for guests - approx. 10 Euro pp. No pool, but I believe a private one was being built for villa/superior rooms only.

    This hotel at Gagou beach is a great 3 star value option in Vathy, the capital of Samos. Location is great about 5-10 min walk to town. Beach on doorstep. Street parking at front of property. Staff in the restaurant - especially Fani the Manager and her team are very accommodating for all requests! It's a great location because you are on the beach, but only a short walk from town. Mini-supermarket 5 minute walk near by. We would recommend hiring a car once arriving at the airport - so you can get to the hotel from the airport, then drop back at the airport. Taxis charge a flat fee which is quite high (25 EUR?) for a short 20 minute airport drive to hotel.
