Arrived late one evening and left early next morning, but...
helpful staff, BIG pool, plenty parking, decent sized room, 3-4 km out of town so you will need either a taxi or scooter for transport.
In a complex with a few other hotels.

We found Sami Beach through TA when we wanted to check out Kefalonia and Zante for possible Beach Wedding venues in 2018

Spyros and his mother/family literally welcomed us with open arms (and an Ouzo ) after a challenging drive across the island from the airport...not for timid drivers...

We stayed for our 4 nights and didn't really want to leave...never before have we kissed Hotel Owners goodbye,but it was mutual appreciation and affection...

Their family Hotel is simple,with no ostentation but classically clean and Greek....breakfast was the same each day but with fab Greek yoghurt and honey...coffee is forced down you in a good way!

Room and bathroom ( no bath ) were simple and spotless...views to the front sea excellent...try to book such...Our only request would be the offer of a packed lunch for a day out in the car or walking ( to pay for )...although lots of good local restaurants to choose from...either by car or foot

We loved this Hotel and the owners hospitality so much we are basing our Wedding Party there next year...Exciting!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea front room and maybe the top floor to avoid noises from above you

The hotel functions very smoothly and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. It's privately run by the Dorizas family, is not a chain hotel.

A very high proportion of the guests are returnees which speaks for itself. We ourselves have been going there annually for over 20 years and will continue to do so.

'Happy hour' at the Sami Beach is 24 hours a day.

We think that everything said in the three recent reviews to the right of this Trip Adviser form is accurate.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms have terrific views towards Ithaca. We prefer them to the mountain view rooms at the back.

Sami Beach is a lovely hotel with delightful sea views in a peaceful relaxing resort. The hotel staff are friendly and welcoming -nothing seems too much trouble for them. We went there to unwind and relax and that' exactly what the hotel offers in abundance. Rooms are spacious and clean with small balconies giving in our case superb sea views towards Ithica. It was a truly delightful experience and like most of our fellow guests we look forward to returning again and again.
The only slight downside was the temperature of the spacious pool. My wife is a keen swimmer but found the water too cold for a prolonged swim. Spiros, who has taken the helm this year from his dad at this family run hotel, has plans for upgrading parts of the hotel - we hope this may include the possibility of heating the pool - the pool is such a potential asset.
Sami too is a wonderful place to relax for those seeking a quiet and authentically Kefalonian holiday. Plenty of good tavernas and bars providing excellent cuisine and value for money together with a picturesque harbour scene with local fishing boats mingling with luxury yachts.
Thank you Sami Beach for making our stay so memorable and see you again soon.

Room Tip: sea views are lovely but mountain views at the rear have more sun

We had booked into the Sami Beach hotel for 4 nights and ended up staying for 18. What a lovely hotel,. The Dorizas family and all the staff are the nicest people, very helpful and kind.
The room had a lovely view of the sea and the pool area it also had everything we required. It's a lovely walk by the sea into Sami where there are various restaurants and tavernas.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a quiet and relaxing holiday.
Also on a personal note thank you to Spyros for all his help.
John & Sheila

Room Tip: Have a room on the second floor with a sea view
