Sami Plaza has its moments as being a brilliant place to stay. Unfortunately those moments can sometimes be forgotten when you are presented with a number of troubles you may encounter.
Upon our arrival at Sami Plaza we were shown to our room to which (from what we can gather from previous reviews) is the basement room/the the caretakers room. It is a small shack at the side of the pool and provides absolutely no sunlight. To stay in this room would mean having to wear wet shorts for the complete stay of your holiday. After being extremely unimpressed with the room we asked if we could be moved but we were told we had to wait until the next day (acceptable if we were told the truth about their not being any available rooms at the time).
This whole situation could have been resolved much better but unfortunately the receptionist at Sami Plaza was extremely useless. He had no interest in taking any time to resolve our issue and therefore meant we had to stay in the room for 2 nights and asked about a new room on about 5 different occasions to no real response.
Apart from the first 2 nights debacle, our stay improved considerably. The food was very nice (we stayed half board) and the staff who worked in the bar/restaurant were extremely nice and helpful.
Our new room was on a high floor and gave us a nice view of the pool down below. The pool itself was beautiful and we always managed to secure sun beds when ever we decided to stay around the pool area.
The hotel is a couple of minutes walk away from the beach front and also from some of the best restaurants in Gumbet.
Overall, Sami Plaza is a very good hotel that could be great but falls short IMO. If not for the issues we had with the reception staff members our stay could have been improved greatly.
