We have just come back from spending a week at Samara. A beautiful hotel with only a couple of minor observations that could be improved. First the positive:
Immaculately clean - the rooms are perfectly clean as are the restaurants and kitchens.
The grounds are well tended and planted with a wide variety of flowering shrubs.
Plenty of bars with only an average wait of two minutes to get a drink. Inclusive drinks to 2am which is useful as most other hotels finish at 12am.
Main restaurant food is really good. Wide variety, well presented and extremely tasty. Beef (which melts in the mouth), chicken, fish, imaginatively presented vegetables. Lovely. No complaints.
Water sports on the beach. Free pedallo's, canoes etc. The jet bikes (which are not free) are great fun and pretty quick topping out at about 50mph, which on water is QUICK!
Plenty of sun beds with no need to race down to save. Nice private beech which is sandy. You can also put your beds on the grass which is just a few yards from the beech if you don't like sandy feet....
The health spa is amazing with free use of the gym and inside pool. Massages and beauty treatments have to be paid for but oh my word.....what amazing massages. Wonderful, floating on air afterwards. I had to have another toward the end of the week.
The only real room for improvement is the time they serve dinner. It starts at 7pm and finishes at 9.30pm. That means you have to be off the beach at 7.30 in time to get changed and ready for dinner. The sun is still hot then - if they served dinner till 11pm - you could easily sunbath until 9pm. Still that is the only small 'grumble'.
We shall be going back in October!!!!
