“Not a Family Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

just come back from a week in this hotel.. as it was all inclusive i really didnt expect the food to be excellent but i did expect it to be average. it was really poor. no choice, cold and lacking taste. we ate out most of the time. the hotel itself is clean and the staff very friendly. the security guard who patrolled the pool through the day had excellent people skills. i never once seen him talk down to anyone. he was professional at all times, needless to say he got his point across without causing friction. plenty of sunbeds anytime of the day. we stayed on the 4th floor overlooking the pool which was good. however i would ask not to be put on the level where there is a flat roof outside your balcony as the cleaner went round looking in windows. i actually watched him go back to one window 4 times.. must have seen something he liked.... so girls either keep your curtains closed or sleep in clothes....the entertainment was the worse i have seen in any hotel.. girls in bikinis dancing round the pool to vulgar songs is not my cup of tea, and i guess not for the couple who had 2 children playing in the pool. needless to say i will not come back to this hotel. however i have been going to magaluf for about 15 years now, sometimes twice a year and i will be going back to the gaudalupe...

Just got back yesterday from a fantastic weeks stay at hotel Samos, we were very happy with the hotel. All staff were very polite & very helpful. We were greeted by Paul the hotel rep as soon as we checked in making sure everything was ok. We were on the 8th floor facing BCM, we were told if we had trouble sleeping then we could be moved. Everything was fine we didn't hear a thing. The rooms were very clean, cleaned everyday & were provided with clean towels. The hotels animation team Alexandra de Almeida & Maria Roco Monfort made our holiday we had such fun very nice ladies indeed ( we will miss them). I had my 14 year old son with me & he enjoyed his stay very much. The food in the hotel was very nice something different everyday, we didn't have a bad meal at all. The pool is absolutely beautiful, one of the best I've seen & there was plenty of beds. I would recommend hotel Samos we will be returning.

Room Tip: Ask to stay on higher floor, as these rooms have been refurbished.

My friend & I came here end of june 2014. We ended up arriving a day & half late due to French air traffic strikes. We called the hotel to let them know we were coming, but we were going to be late. When we eventually got to Hotel Samos, The reception staff were very friendly. I could tell by the way they were talking amongst themselves they hadn't saved our room, But he told us he'd upgrade our room & it was very very nice! Few days later i got my bag stolen at the beach (BEWARE OF PEOPLE POSING AS COUPLES) and the hotel staff we're as helpful as they could be. :)) We went half board, the food wasnt very nice so we ate out a few times, but as my bag was stolen aswell as my money, the food became ediable!!

Room Tip: Room 629 is a referbished but the room next to it isnt ;)

Came here in August 2014 with three of my friends, to be honest after reading some mad reviews I had my concerns. We stayed on the second floor which was nice and no where near as bad as everyone makes out on here ( I am aware the higher floors have all been refurbished) The food was good, different every night I am a very fussy eater and there was something for me every night, we made breakfast only four times out of the two weeks we were there, I'm not a big breakfast person but my friends seemed to enjoy it, they had very nice pastries and muffins and lots of fresh fruit and cereal if you didn't want a cooked breakfast. The staff were very nice and welcoming, also the "travel buddy's" at reception were amazing, particularly Paul and Fern. The pool area was very good as was the pool entertainment. The hotel is literally next door to bcm and the beach and strip are only a few minuets walk away. As we stayed on the floor which seemed to be the party floor, it was very noisy at night although we didn't seem to mind,one night we didn't go out it was very noisy and all you could here was people running outside and singing and doors being banged but we didn't mind this at all as we were out every other night. We had fresh towels every day however our beds were only made once, the maid told us she wouldn't make our beds until we tided, we did yet our beds were still never made. The drinks in the hotel are very cheap as well as the afternoon snacks, such as hot dogs and pizza & even pot noodles. Our room view faced onto bcm square and the back of the hotel not the nicest of views but we did enjoy the music from bcm square every night. I had an amazing time in Magaluf and if I was to ever return I would definitely stay at the Hotel Samos.

Room Tip: If you don't like a lot of noise then perhaps ask for a higher floor as floor 1 & 2 were the...

Me and 4 of my girlfriends stayed at Samos last July.
We had two rooms with 2 friends sleeping in one and 3 in the other.
They say the rooms sleep up to 3 people - this is a lie, the rooms are tiny and the third person gets a camp bed which is wedged in-between one of the beds and the patio doors.
The hotel staff are rude and not attentive. The reps didn't talk to us once during our whole holiday.
We got dropped at the hotel around 11 am to be told they didn't have rooms for us and we would have to stay in another hotel. We were gutted - the other hotel was nice enough but it was much further from the strip and we could not unpack/get settled as we were to be going back the next day! To be honest this ruined our holiday from the beginning as it completely killed the mood.

Pros
Location is good - next door to BCM
TV in rooms
Bathrooms are modern and nice
Foyer is very modern
Pool area is big enough
Rooms cleaned well
The air con is good and keeps the rooms cool

Cons
The food wasn't very nice and was same old same old.
No wrist band for the restaurant - just a cardboard cut out which can easily be lost.
The atmosphere in the hotel wasn't as good as other party hotels i've stayed in.
The lifts are ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING they absolutely stink of sick it is gross! Never cleaned but if you're further than the second floor up you have no choice as there are so many floors!!!
Rooms are really small and so is the balcony.

The main disappointment with this hotel was the lack of atmosphere - I stayed in Fiesta Sahara this year which was 100 times better than this even though it was much more standard when it came to the rooms etc. This hotel had a lot of families too which I found odd.
Personally I wouldn't stay again as there are cheaper, better, more fun hotels to stay in where the reps really get involved with you and you feel they are there to help.

Room Tip: The higher you go the better

Came here for three nights with 3 girl friends and was good stay! Checked in quickly, rooms are very clean and towels changed everyday! Couldn't ask for a better location. Only two downfalls and thats the good is not very good eatable but not the best abit cold. We were all inclusive but had dinner out one night and lunch out another just for a good feed lol! And they only give you one drink at a time which is annoying going back and forward when your at the pool and you get can't any drinks in for the rest of your party! Would stay again.

A group of 3 of us stayed in the hotel Samos from the 29th july til the 3rd August. Qhen we areived we were given the key 2 our room on the top floor, as soon as we walked in the amell of cheesy feet was diagusting! & the view was on 2 rubbish bins & the back of the hotel! I went down straight away & asked for our room 2 be changed & the man at reception was very nice & managed to move us staight away 2 the 3rd floor with a pool view...perfect! :-)

The room is quite small but served its purpose & the cleaners were in everyday with fresh towel & tidying (our room was left a bombsight most of the time as 3 girls u can imagine).
The pool area is very big & u will have no problem getting a sunbed, this is also kept very clean with security & lifegaurd there all day. They have a BCM pool party on a fri & it does get pretty busy. Music is on dwn there daily aswell as some games.

The hotel is basically right nxt dr 2 BCM but dont let that put u off if ur not there 4 a wild one! We genuinly didnt hear anythin from there the nights we wernt in it! I was quite suprised! Beware of rhe fat bauld security gaurd though! He was the most depressed man in maga..tellin us 2 shhhh everytime we walked in at night(4am) as if it was full of oaps lol! Even when i tried 2 have a wee joke with him he didnt crack a smile. Rest of the staff though i cant fault! The barmwn were always full of smiles :-)
Bar29 is straight across the rd from the hotel & this is where we usually started the night off as its usually busy & the staff r fab! morgans bar is 2 the right of the hotel across the rd on the corner (best fry ups) we were half board and always had our bfast there, didnt make bfast rimes in the hotel usually & to be honest with what is offered at dinner...i dint fancy it.
The food i would say is prob the only thing that lets this hotel dwn, out of the 5 nights we eat twice in there with me having a pasta and tomato sauce As everything else wasnt the best looking or tasting by some faces!! :-/.

If i could give u piece of advise, try not srink the rushkanoff (cheap) vodka all the time bcos it took me about a week 2 not sound like a man when i got back & we wernt the only ones....the rushkanoff cough does exist!! :-/.
Had a fab holiday & met some fab people, this hotel is ideal if ur not looking 4 5star luxury! I would defo be back! :-)
