Reviewed 16 September 2013

This is our 12th time back over the past 20 years. If you want a relaxing, carefree, friendly hotel then this is for you. The family and staff genuinely remember all their returnees and make everyone feel so special. The views from the sea facing balconies are spectacular but so are the views overlooking the garden and tennis court (quiet time between 3-5). The rooms are spotlessly clean and the bed linen the crispest and whitest you will find. There is a great outdoor bar with refreshments brought to you around the pool and its a place where we congregate before we go out to dinner and then when we come back. The bar closes at midnight which ensures peace and quiet for those that want it with Sami town (10 minute walk along the beach) providing great bars into the early morning.

I had read reviews discussing the amazing staff at this hotel. When we arrived, we understood what everyone was talking about. We really felt like we were staying with relatives; all the staff were so friendly and helpful and always had smiles on their faces. We met some other guests that have been coming for over 20 years and could see why they returned. We stayed 6 nights at the hotel and with Iannis' help, we were able to plan our holiday and see all the major sights that Kefalonia has to offer. We had hired a car from mainland Greece, so this enabled us to travel at our own pace and stay as long as we wanted if we liked a particular spot. The facilities at the hotel were very good. Fantastic view of the pool and the beach in the background was available from our room. The rooms are fine, nothing flash, but we really weren't in them for very long! Breakfast didn't really vary from day to day, but there was enough choice to make everyone happy. Not much hot food. The yogurt and honey was beautiful! It is a lovely 10 minute walk to town, which we did most nights and always had an enjoyable meal. We returned several times to Gorgona (Mermaid), the food was beautiful traditional Greek. I am so glad we stayed st Sami Beach, it was the most pleasant hotel experience we had during our trip to Greece. We felt quite emotional at the end when saying our goodbyes; it was like we were leaving family behind!

From the moment we arrived at Sami Beach Hotel we knew we were staying somewhere special. Iannis and Maryann and the rest of the family and staff who run the hotel gave us such a warm welcome, were very informative about local sights and attractions and couldn't have been more helpful in organising transfers and car hire. The hotel's location is in the village of Karavmilos which has three very nice restaurants, and is only a 10 minute walk along the beachfront to the main town of Sami where there are many more. The hotel's facilities were excellent with a decent swimming pool, tennis court and table tennis, a bar and lots of things you can borrow to take to the beach and there is a huge buffet breakfast availabIe every morning. I can totally understand why people come back here year after year.

Room Tip: It is probably worth paying a little more to have a room with a balcony overlooking the pool and bea...

By far the people who own and operate this hotel are the friendliest, warmest and most hospitable I have ever come across. I enjoyed my time in this hotel and spending time with its staff and owners as they made me feel like a family member. I will definitely be coming back to stay here next time I visit Kefalonia and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for accommodation on this island.

Everything was really good from a relaxing and sporting perspective. Friendly staff that clearly enjoyed their work and made the holiday even more fun. Excellent swimming pool and jacuzzi. The hotel is situated in an ideal location, as it was close to town for eating and shopping, as well as on a seafront, for swimming and sunbathing.

This beautiful hotel is kept by a family, who cares from morning to evening to get your stay as pleasant as possible. They really contribute to make your vacation a period of good-feeling.
There are a lot of nice places to eat traditional greek food in the vicinity.
