You couldn't ask for a better location within the resort of Kambos/Votsalakia. It's just across the road to the beach, and you are next door to a supermarket (perfect for lugging the six packs of water), and the cash point.
You're a minute from a handful of tavernas and you'd never have to walk more than 20 minutes to reach the outskirts of the tavernas, of which there are plenty. The beach goes on and on, and isn't hugely populated. The resort has a half dozen supermarkets, a couple of gift shops, and a couple of jewellers. To see more of the island, you really need to hire a car. Whilst the roads are okay, the Pythagoria road is the hairier route around the island. You're an hour away from kokkari and Samos town.
There's no internet cafe in the resort but plenty of places offer wireless, so if you want to get online, take along a wireless device.
the hotel itself was spotless, though the rooms were fairly averagely decorated. Air conditioning was still 6 euros a night and fridge 3 euros. I had a room in the main hotel over looking the sea and the pool. Didn't notice any traffic noise myself. The cats were about, but not everywhere.
pool area not hugely overcrowded, had it to myself for a good proportion of the time, and there are usually lilos if you fee like lounging in the middle of the water, rather than having to buy one yourself.
Resort and hotel were not quite what I was expecting, and a little quieter in terms of things to do than I am used to. However, I still didn't want to leave - it lulls you into it's relaxed pace of life.
Excellent value for money.
Possibly only downside was that the locals didn't seem to want you to speak greek...
