We spent 3 nights over Greek Easter holidays at this family run property and could not have wanted anything more! The hotel is set back a bit from the sea, which makes it quiet and the balconies afford fantastic views of the sunset and surrounding hills. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean, and they own a little taverna across the street which is directly on the beach - great food at great prices! Our hostess Toula could not have been more helpful. Her effervescent personality is contagious and she made us feel like part of her lovely family. Toula invited us as guests to enjoy an Greek Easter picnic, which we were most disappointed to have to decline, but Toula surprised us with some special Easter bread called Tsoureki! They have several turtles on the property that were rescued from the devasting fires a few years ago, and it was intereting to learn how Toula and her husband actually took in several wildlife creatures rescued from the wild during this terrible fire. There are laundry facilites on site, and Toula can make arrangements for guided tours and hikes, as well as offering several tourist related services. If your travels take you to Karlovassi, Anema Sea Hotel/Apartments will provide all your travel needs with outstanding Greek hospitlity! Thank you again Toula for being such an ambassador of Samos!!

We were 36 Danish bridgeplayers at this pleasant apartment hotel from September 8 to 15. Extremely friendly and helpful personnel everywhere. I had reserved one of the few large apartments with morning sun. This involved view to the mountains - and the tennis court next to a parking lot - so we changed to another similar apartment with a view to the sea but then only sun on the balconies from approx 4 pm. Everywhere extremly clean and tidy, the apartments are also cleaned every day. Even if we had dinner at the hotel's beach restaurant 5 days we were served very good and different very local dishes each time. Smiling and very efficient staff. The small island is beautiful with the high mountains and many beaches with crystal clear water. Karlovasi is a rather big town with few tourists, so the whole atmosphere is very local Greek. A drive across the island to f.inst Hereon (the Hera Temple) along rather narrow roads in the mountains maybe with a stop at the monestry Megali Panagia and further 12 km to more touristic Phytagorio and Vathi/Samos and back along the coast gives you a perfect idea of the beautiful island.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view to the sea and next to the pool and pool bar have no sun before approx 4 pm. If y...

I spent a week at the Anema by the Sea July 2012 and it was great. Everything I was looking for. Super staff, great food, and Clean! All that at an affordable rate. The hotel is set back a little bit from the sea. You can sit on your balcony and watch the sunset. The restaurant is right on the beach and it is also very good and very affordable. The pool is very clean and perfect for a very early or very late night dip. There was a small refrigerator in the room and two heating elements for snacks and simple meals. Very handy. The hotel has parking if you rent a car.
The hosts are very accommodating and extremely friendly. I would definitely return. Near by there is an amazing beach called Potami. What a view. The boats arrive at Karlovassi port which is not far from the apts. Samos Town is about an hour away and the airport a bit further but by boat from Pireus it's very close. The island is very green and renting a car to get around is ideal. This apartment hotel is excellent for the adventurous who want to create their own holiday experience at reasonable rates. I will definitely return.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool and sea may be more expensive but worth the view in my opinion.

We travelled to Samos for a friend's wedding and stayed at the Amena. The location was perfect - the hotel is set back slightly from the seafront. As well as the hotel, there is a restaurant and bar on the sea front which is part of Amena and as guests we received 10% discount on the bill. The standard of the food was excellent. Perfect setting on the beach and not too far to walk from the port which also has lovely restaurants. The walk to centre of town is about 20 minutes. The hotel has a nice pool and bar. There is a children's play centre adjacent to the hotel - this was closed as we travelled during school time, but the facilities looked very good for young children. The room standard was good. The staff were helpful and friendly. I would stay here again if I return to Samos.

Every moment of my ten-day experience at Anema by the Sea last summer felt like a gift. I'd been to 13 countries in Europe and lived in 3. Yet Greece exceeded all expectations. I had the amazing opportunity to run a writing workshop for ten days at the hotel, which I am thrilled and honoured to be doing again in June-July, 2012. I can't believe my good fortune to be returning to in this idyllic setting. Rising to look out at the crystal Aegean, Turkey shimmering in the distance, left my students and me breathless each morning. Our warm, hospitable hosts provided breakfasts by the pool and fed us tantalizing Greek dishes in the evening down by the seashore. (My only complaint is I weighed too much when I got home!) They ferried us to ancient villages up the mountain, took us to pristine sparkling beaches, local artists' studios, old churches and chapels, caves, taught us Greek dancing, told us stories of each place. Every day was an adventure. In Karlovassi, on the Island of Samos, Greece entered the veins of eight delighted Canadians. Our one Greek American had always known its lure. I brought home Potami Beach stones and sand, and memories of a place so exquisite, so welcoming, despite the hardship Greece is experiencing. I came home with love for this country and admiration for its resilient people.

Our best last minute travel.
In May 2008 my wife and I bought a last minute trip to Samos in Greece and we have never regretted it.
Upon arrival we are greeted by the most beautiful smile and nice hosts. After the key delivery and a small card that will give a discount in the hotel restaurant, we go up the room which was a one-room apartment with a small kitchenette. It was good enough for the price, the balcony was almost as big as the room it self and with sea views and pool views!! perfect.
Next morning when the coffee was done, we wondered how clearly we could hear our neighbors through a door to the neighboring apartment, but here made ​​a bedspread wonders, it insulates perfectly.
Later in the evening the small card to the restaurant located on the shoreline, has to be tested. But that seems to worry the hotel manager because there was a strong wind from the sea, so he picked one of his own chips jackets, as my wife could take over the shoulders if she should feel cold, this be called service.
The lovely dinner was consumed and everyone was happy and warm.
The port city Karlovasi (with its own wine factory, almost next door to the hotel) and many small lovely tavernas, especially in the harbor, was also investigated, and here we also met many cute, warm and loving humor grate people, so we agreed that it was not the last time we were here.
As written, we might come to Karlovassi again, we bought a last minute ticket again, and this time we contacted the hotel in advance to see if it was possible to rent an apartment, and there was no problem, again a good service.
Now we have lived in the same apartment all the times we've been here, and now in July 2011 is the seventeenth time since 2008, and we have been here at all seasons, it´s still the same wonderful people, and now friends you meet in the lovely city KARLOVASI.

A ferry ride from Athens to Samos brought us to Amena by the Sea... 3:30 AM we arrived to find a smiling face and rooms at the ready for two tired travelers. Rooms was well beyond what we expected and the service and friendliness of all the staff was great. Food at the seaside taverna was extrodinary... who'd of thought two canadians would try stuffed octopus... and like it... surrounding villages, country side and hiking trails are a dream and easily accessible for all ages. The island is an amazing mix of sights sounds and vistas and in the 2 weeks we spent at the Amena a helpful and friendly staff suggested various locations to experience. Thanks to all there for making our stay so great. the Lundes Vancouver B. C. Canada
