It's location in the hills, the view over Kokkari, the quiet and clean garden. Everything is a pleasure voor the eyes. The food is excellent. The friendly staff speaks English. Free internetacces in the lobby. We rented a car, but the hotel provides transportation by minibus to the nearest beaches.
Comfortable, relaxed environment, with great view over Kokkari
The friendness of the staff. The grass by the pool needed to be mowed. We were there for 6 days and it was never mowed. The weeds were 4-5" high. The hotel was not responsive to emails when inquiring about individual rooms with views. We were on our honeymoon and ended up with two twin beds pushed together.
The Doryssa is in a great location, beach, town etc. great pool, and bar, property is beautiful. the buffet meals were very nice, huge breakfasts and dinner. The room service and lunch menu were also very nice. The ocean view rooms were fabulous! I missed having a stocked mini bar, but there was a refrigerator, so you could buy water etc. I also would have liked to have a menu for dinner instead of the buffet however the buffet was very nice.
Everything exept that it is a little bit strange how the cost for food, drinks and soft drinks can be so much higher in price comperd to good resturants in the city. It was a little bit unsure about beachtowels. One day it was changed at our room. The following days it was not changed. We did not know if there was any "code" of how we chould do to get new baechtowels changed at the room.
Clean and relaxed atmosphere. Clean rooms although towards the small size. Good breakfast buffet. Nice beach and proximity to the airport and port. Polite staff (although in the pool bar a little bit noisy and not "fast")
Excellent hotel with very good value for money - staff is really helpfull
Great beach, good rooms, though a bit small Room size was a bit small, otherwise very nice
near the town of Pythagorio, on a beautifull beach, with direct connection in a clear sea, excellent gardens , bungalows designed like local types of houses the bath at the hotel is very very small and difficult to use, the beds at the hotel were all double (no twins), there was no stand for the baggages, there was no baywatch nor at the beach nor at the pool, for the money we were paying for the room the beach-chairs should be free
Exceptional service, great facilities, 15-minute walk to Pythagorion Bath facilities
We loved our stay at the Mirini Hotel, and would go back in a heartbeat. It is a small family-run hotel, and the proprietors are delightful. The rooms are impeccably clean, and the decor is very comfortable and authentic. Views from the balconies, looking out over the bay, are absolutely beautiful. Breakfast on the terrace was delightful. The hotel was an easy walk up the hill from the ferry docks, and just meters from the town beach. Absolutely no complaints.
I liked the location of the hotel and its terrasse with beautiful view, the friendliness of the owner and the staff who were very helpful also for giving advices on what to see on the island and where to go for dinner.And their suggestions were good. The rooms are clean , but a bit small. Wifi worked very well even in the room. It's a good solution for the price.
All rooms are facing the bay with a cute balcony and that you have an excellent ocean view. Breakfast.
Location fantastic, great views of the port and ocean in Samos, short walk to the town of Vathy and port, the people that own the place are very friendly and accommodating
Lovely view from the balacony and has a traditional exterior The debit/credit card machine would not work so they had to come to Samos town with us to wait for a cash withdrawal. They were going to look into this problem and were very apologetic. I always prefer to pay by card for ease and security etc. I expect they will address this problem!
Unbelievably helpful and supportive staff -- really bend over backwards for you.
Very friendly hotel,we had delightful balcony close to the waters edge,easy 3 min walk to good beach and 12 mins from town. lovely outdoor terrace for breakfast. As experienced kiwi travellers we really enjoyed our stay here.
A very friendly staff, helping with anything needed. A real pleasure.
Nice view from the hotel lobby veranda. we had a confirmation from booking.com about the hotel, but when there, they had NO rooms, so they put us in a studio also owned by them, which had a worse view/facilities than the main hotel. Breakfast was terrible.
The location is amazing. Right on a small and beautiful pebble beach. 5 minute walk along the beach to the downtown of kokkari which is filled with beautiful restaturants that are right on the water. The owners of the hotel were very polite and amazing. they spoke very good english as well.
Air conditioning, very good one. Nice clean room. Small shower, only separated by a curtain which means you splash water in the bathroom every time you have a shower. Reception sometimes unattended.
The shuttle service by caring and friendly staff The slope was steep to get from the room to the dining area.
Not up to the expectations advertised on the web, especially the sea view bungalow. We barely had a view, and did not have the balcony of the photos. When we expressed our contempt, the reception team were helpful, but the person who was supposed to tend to our problem did not even call back. Nothing was done to adress our claim, it was apparent they did not care. The price versus room quality & service was not fair.
the beach and the bar was very nice
The gourmet restaurant.
I liked the location: it is magical. I also liked stuff- they were very friendly and helpful. I did not like the food offered in the hotel: both breakfast and dinner were very poor in terms of quality. I also did not like the facilities and infrastructure, which is outdated. The hotel needs renovation; eg beds are old and extremely firm; aircondition machines seriously old. Value for money is poor: they either need to improve the facilities and food or reduce the price
friendly staff, swimming pool, good location, good breakfast we had to go home to australia
The only good thing was the location of the hotel which is close to the town of Samos and it has nice view if you have sea view which they charge extra. First of all the breakfast was very poor and it was only one person who was serving and cleaning. The TV in my room didn't have any reception and when I complaint they told me that they will send somebody to fix it but no one came after five days that I stayed. They have only one PC for internet and they charge 2 euros per hour. The furniture and the bathroom of my room was quite old.
If you are looking for a peaceful stay at a beautiful location, then this hotel is perfect! It's close proximity to the ferry port, town facilities, and the car rental office made it very practical, and the fact that it is nestled on the hill in a quiet neighborhood with a view looking over the Aegean made it very relaxing. The hotel staff was helpful and the rooms spacious and clean.
very polite staff
Nice location and view. Good pool. Helpful receptionist Twin beds for a married couple was a bit disappointing.Food was pretty poor
The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The view from the room. It is not in the best location because it is a bit out of town and up quite a steep hill. However I knew this before going from previous reviews and did not mind too much.
Very helpful staff. Very cute hotel, nice location with a beautiful view. Some parts of the hotel though would need some renovation. The newer part of the hotel seemed very nice. But in all a nice family hotel, situable for all kinds of turists. A renovation in some parts would make the hotel more atractive.
the service was very good and the room comfortable
Classy hotel, with warm, hospitable atmosphere, spacious, comfy and tastefully decorated rooms with great balcony view, nice pool and excellant sunbeds and pool bar. It's a hotel where you really enjoy your stay, with very good value for money. Though the bathroom was also spacious, the shower was small and the water was spilling all over the place. Generally showers and taps are in need of renovation. The balcony chairs in our room were heavy, clumsy and noisy (some other rooms had better ones). Also beware that there is no lift and you have to climb quite a few stairs to reach some of the rooms with view.
staff, location, the view from the balcony breakfast
Good place. Short and pleasant walk into town, nice beach out front, friendly staff, clean rooms. Full breakfast. No wifi in the room, but not a huge problem.
The seaview from the balcony was wonderful
The hotel sites directly on a beach, the beach is rocky (smooth rocks) not sandy, you have to pay 6 euro for a set (2) lawn chairs with table and unmbrella, the water was clear and blue. There is a cafe right at the entrance, that serves wonderful greek dishes and alcohol and staff is friendly.
Quiet for rest The furniture is so old
Staff was friendly and helpful. Beautiful views of bay and beach from room. Quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Easy access to shopping and port.
Enjoyed my 2 day stay. Very clean hotel with easy access to beach
The view of the bay/beach. The room was old and yucky, there was no toilet paper in the bathroom (which stank) and one of the girls behind reception desk was rude and unhelpful. The two other staff members we encountered were fine (nice and friendly).
I liked the balcony with oceanview and the privacy of the little bay on the dead end street with hardly any traffic.
clean sheets every day, air conditioning, next to beach, bar area buffet dinners - hot metal trays of food were not heated underneath so were cold very quickly
We enjoyed our stay here. The buffet breakfast and dinner was good.The rooms were a bit small but there was an outside balcony with a nice view of the sea. They could have had a shuttle service to Vathi town. Either you had to take a taxi or walk. We walked!
Very nice view! Nice room with beds that were ok. The staff were very nice and helpful. Good service! Short way to the beach. Nice prices at the restaurant.
Quality, healthy breakfast with feta, tomatoes, cucumbers, breads, eggs, honey and jam, omelette, excellent yogurt, and a few more items. We only met two women on the staff and they are wonderful, friendly, and helpful. The housekeeper of our section was friendly and wiped the marble floor each morning. A narrow street separates the hotel from the smooth rocky beach where the water is clear and blue-green. There are several good restaurants within a few minutes of walking, or continue to the larger concentration of restaurants and shops in about 10 minutes at a strolling pace. Kokkari was much better than Pythagorio since it has a beach and better layout. Even our rental car represtative from Vathy said that he prefers Kokkari to Pythagorio. I would stay here again. About the only complaint I had was the smell from the drains leaking into the bathroom. Keeping a bath mat over the drain in the floor helped, but it also seemed to come from the shower. Keep the window in the bathroom open. We stayed in early October when it was pleasant weather (and it was quiet in town) but there did not appear to be air conditioning, so it could be hit in July and August. This appeared to be normal for the area, however, due the the steady wind.
