“CHARMING”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

From the moment we arrived Konstantinos made us feel so very welcome. True Greek hospitality in a perfect Mediterranean setting.
The apartment was spacious for 2 people, spotlessly clean and fresh. The gardens immaculately kept and the pool was always sparklingly clean and refreshing.
Being a little bit out of town means there is a very calm quiet and relaxing atmosphere. For those who find the walk into town a little too far, there is a kiklos car hire right next door with cars for next to nothing.
On a value for money basis Electra is off the top of the scale

A nice quiet place to stay with very welcoming owners. Property is clean and tidy with a reasonable size pool, and pool bar. Limited snacks though!
The only issue with staying here, is that it is a bit of a treacherous walk to the town and back, particularly at night when there is very little lighting and lunatic drivers taking the bends on the wrong side of the road. It is also quite a steep hill which would cause problems for those with walking difficulties. There are short cuts but these are also quite steep and would not be recommended at night due to poor lighting.
On the plus side, getting a cab back isn't very expensive and only takes five minutes.
We tended to walk down and get a cab back.
The town itself is quite pleasant and great for a quiet week away. Plenty of restaurants and the usual great greek laid back way of life.
From Samos Town you can get a ferry to Kusadasi, Turkey, and from there take a tour to Ephesus. This is a fantastic historical site and well worth a visit.

We have stayed 3 times at the Electra - it's out of town but if you have a car it's about 5 minutes away- if you have trouble walking just remember it's situated on a hill which is quite steep. Accommodation is basic but fine - owners are nice and friendly and pool is lovely. Would definitely go here again.

Since Thomson stopped dealing with Electra the reviews have stopped. After we were offered alterantive accommodation we deceided we still wanted to go to the Electra so we booked direct with them and booked a Thompson flight only. A good move as the views were outstanding. The accommodation was typical Greek basic but adeqate. But Constantino could not do enough for us. Most days we had the pool to ourselves as other guests opted for "walking trips". The heat (31-39) most days mad the pool a better option. There were no supermarkets nearby so you would need to buy in the town of Pythorgorio nad get a taxi back (5 euros). Again the restaurants were in the harbour town though we walked down (15-20 mins) and got a taxi back. You can walk to the harbour via the Marina and the views were outstanding. The best resaurant was the "Iridion" excellent food. Try these appartments by contacting Constantio direct for relaxing holiday. You wont be disappointed.

Stayed here last August, very clean basic studios, like you would expect in Greece, owners live on premises are very friendly, it is like a small garden centre with small water fountains outside a few ground floor studios, which I think the ground floor is best as you have more privacy. Pool is a good size very clean, also have a small bar, The only problem is where it is positioned, no shops to pop to have to go in to town , via a very steep hill which is a main road taking about half an hour walk, not suitable for any one who has walking difficuties, unless you want to get a Taxi every day , the nearest beach is also via a steep hill, and is only small, the other beach would take about 40 min walk via the steep hill towards town, Samos is lovely its my favourite Island but be prepared for the walk, and gets very hot June to Sept.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have more privacy, balconys on first floor are open no dividing wall book early...

Basic apartments, but very clean with a nice pool area.
We had a really good fortnight and will be returning, highly recommended.
Only downside was the lack of choice of food / snacks on site as the owners wife who does the cooking had suffered a stroke.
Not really a big deal and certainly not enough to prevent us from choosing the Electra again. Oh and as someone who has been to most of the Greek islands, if you have booked to go to Samos you won't be disappointed....it's absolutely beautiful.
Big thumbs up!
