Arion Hotel, Samos greece
★ ★ ★ ★
No weather data found for [, ”Samos”, ”Samos”, horizontal]
An attractive property externally, with individually styled accommodation blocks painted in pastel colours. The majority of rooms have a balcony or terrace facing the sea. Internally well presented but dated. The mountain location means no resort amenities are in the immediate vicinity, but this is more than compensated for by the particularly attractive views, and feeling of calm and serenity. There is a free shuttle-bus to the beach and resort. The pool area is rather compact for the number of rooms.
Popular with mature couples and families, a minority of clients are British, the remainder are mainly Dutch and German. Suits those requesting a peaceful, relaxing hotel, where a scenic location is more important than being central in resort.
Situated high in the mountains surrounded by Cypress and pine trees, with a few other properties in the area. 700m above the resort of Kokkari where the closest restaurants, bars and shops are located, the hotel runs a free shuttle bus 5 times a day.
700m from the hotel is Kokkari beach, a narrow pebbly strip backed by cafe bars and tavernas. There is a surf school and plenty of sunbeds and parasols for rent. Lemonakia is 600m away and Tsamadou 800m, both picturesque coves with smaller pebble beaches and crystal clear water.
An angular pool with metal stepped entry and small adjacent children’s pool. Both are neatly surrounded by marble tiles with a grassy lawn to one side hosting sunbeds and umbrellas, and sizeable pool bar to the other, with attractive coast views.
Leisure & Entertainment
Games room with a table tennis table and two billiards tables, and a playground for children. There’s a basic sauna, whirlpool and a room for massages by appointment. Greek evenings are held sometimes.
