    Easy booking, no frills. You pay for what you get, but there are no problems (cockroaches, etc).

  • 2.0.Poor

    This should be listed as a hostel. It is not a hotel. Its a closet with no AC (even tho the hotel is listed as having AC) and a very small bathroom. When we asked for our money back them showed us two rooms that did have AC even after they told us the only room with AC was booked. It had bricks with holes in it (without screens) and an AC but was just as bad as the first room. For the price of $80US it was way over priced. Should only be charging $30night.

    Adventure stay on Samara beach

    We went with friends there with Hotel.com reservation. But the reservation did not go right and Dan (the owner) has helped us to find the place at his hotel.

    It's really more a hostel than an hotel. The location is perfect but the rooms are super small, a bit dark and the place is generally noisy both at night and in the morning. Pool was nice.

    Good place for partying teenagers

    The location is good since it’s very close to the beach otherwise I only recommend this place to groups of teenagers. It was very noisy with the other guest partying a lot. The staff was friendly but not professional at all. I was sleeping in a dorm and one night a staff member came in the middle of the night (11 -12 pm) waking all the dorm up to ask how many people we were in the room - and she did this twice. They also came during the day to ask who was sleeping there and when I checked out they had no idea whether I payed or not and had lost the paperwork.
