Reviewed 29 September 2012

Spent 2 weeks in August with 2 small children (2 and 4 years old). A perfect family hotel. Everything is close by: beach, swimming pool and food. Food is great and so is the service.
Only negative point the rooms in bungalows -could be better decorated. The ones in the hotel were fine.

We spent a week in August in this hotel and it was enough. After having read the reviews we were expecting to be in the right place. What a disappointement, nothing to do with a real 5* hotel.

Positive: 80 % of the guests coming from the Europe zone (most from France, Belgium, Netherland, 10 % from Turkey, rest from Italy, Est Europe) I think we were the only Swiss family.
Buffet tasty, varied and fresh (fresh orange juice to be paid as extra....) . Room perfectly cleaned. Kids club friendly.

Negative: overcrowed resort, beach very tiny (it seems to be at the market on saturday morning). Staff not at all friendly (never smiling, what about a customer service course ???), waiters sleeping with poor knoweldge of French or English, rooms furnished like a 3* hotel (tiny walls: you can hear what your neighbors are doing....) , sea very dirty in the afternoon (we saw swimming tranches of pizza, cucumbers, bottles, plastic). Sunbeds at the beach in plastic very hard for your back.

For sure we will found better place in Turkey.

I have spent two fantastic weeks in Samara hotel. I went there with my sister, her husband and my husband. I cannot write what was the best, the beach, bars, food or fenomenal service we have enjoyed. The staff was very helpful, waitors, very young boys, some of them even on training were the most professional, running around you to serve you as good and as fast as possible. The rooms are nice with beautiful views and the best room is 532, so close to the beach. I have to mention a lovely girl named Bedriye who was our silent cleaner and who did her job so perfectly and so quckly, I still cannont get how did she manage to do all the rooms before we came back from breakfast, to arrange flowers and fruits and to keep it so nice and clean. The food is delicious and the variety was huge, the best turkey and eggs that I have had anywhere.
The only remarks that I have is for the girl who was on guest relations stall, I had feeling that she did not want to try hard to make the guests happy, but otherwise, this was my dream holiday and I will definitely come again next year.

Well done to the hotel on all accounts.

Room Tip: For me the best rooms are 532 as it has a wonderfull view, but all the rooms are very nice.

We have stayed in this hotel in June 2012 with two family.

Service and friendliness second to none. Even tough it is a seasonal hotel but it runs like nothing less then your crown plaza or Hilton in London. Management and certainly staff are very well. Trained to deliver great customer satisfaction.

I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to any one I for one will return to this great place years to come as I felt I was valued as customer and did not felt not once bad.
Thank you team in Samara Greag work from cleaners to waiters and animation and management great work ethic..

This is a nice hotel, everything, including rooms, pool, restaurants, beach, facilities are clean. All people are kind and take care of you. It's the 3rd time we go there, and the whole family like it. With a swimming pool beside the sea. You can snorkel in the sea an see many small fishes and crabs. Even the hot days, there is a little refreshing wind which makes the heat supportable.
Good and variated food. None of us had stomach problems.

Room Tip: Take bungalows in the garden, far from the pool if you want a quiet room.
