“Perfectly located, clean and friendly”
Reviewed 24 May 2009

My Wife and I travelled in May for 2 weeks at the Lambros. Sophia is very friendly and welcoming. By way of a change we found we had selected a location which was beyond our best possible wishes. Across the road between the small pensions there and we were on the North facing (windy) beach. We did have several still days and it was very calm. small tavernas and bars in either direction onto the beach or into garden areas. Walking along the beack and over the small hill leads to the harbour, sheltered and with and abundance of Taveransa and quiet bars in which to enjoy an alcholic drink or a coffee etc, All very friendly. We were eating most nigts for around 17-30 euros for a starter, main and 1/2 litre of wine for the 2 of us. Clearly the price is okay- the excahnge rate makes it more expensive than ever before. Some Bars charge up to 3.80euro for a large Mythos and 4 euros for a Samos Brandy of Metaxa. More like town bar rates in the UK really, the difference is the people of Samos are by far the most friendly we have ever encountered offering a service you wil not get back home.
We used La Bussolla for our meals for more than half our stay. Every meal was superb and I can realy recommend the Lamb Kleftiko and the Beef Stamna, oh and the Moussaka and....!!!) Alfa bar just east of the Hotel was our favourite for pre dinner drinks or the second bar over the bridge in the harbour (smaller bar with blue chairs and tall electric lights- no name though). He served my Wife the best hot chocolate ever (but it was 4 euros!) also intoduced mr to Samos Brandy as an alternative to Metaxa- so good I bought a bottle.

Back to the Lambros. Typically basic greek room. Few extras like a small hairdryer and a mozzie plug, but 15 euros a week for a fridge and 10 for a safe are very steep, after a 2 week stay I could buy a fridge at home!. The beds were harder than normal and although a reasonable breakfast with yummy home made jams I felt that it was average. The rooms and balcony were also average altough freshly painted and smart. We had selected a hotel with a small bar as we like to meet other guests and exchange information but unfortunately the bar is simply not stocked or open. I found that mildly annoying albeit as previously- and excellent assortment nearby.
I would not tell anyone not to use the Lambros as clearly a lot of people love the place but we have experienced better Small and Friendly Thomson hotels. We would revisit the island again but look for alternate accomodation in Kokkari.

We loved Samos, probably the best Island we have visited, so 'not touristy'!! Shame it doesn't have a couple of really nice sandy beaches. We toured all over and even those in the South West were not a touch on those on other Islands, that said the snorkeling was excellent as a result with crystal clear water everywhere.

The Waterfalls near Ptima are wortha visit and a nice shady walk alongside a bubbling stream. Vourlates and Manolates are 2 beautiful mountain villages close to Kokkari.

Reviewed 25 July 2008

This small and friendly hotel provided us with a memorable holiday in Kokkari. Hotel owners Sophia and Christos ensure that your every need is taken care of, nothing is too much trouble.
Continental style buffet breakfast is taken on the terrace at the front of the hotel from 8.30am - 9.30am. All the other guests were very friendly, some of them repeat visitors from the UK, Holland and Switzerland. We had a couple of early evening get togethers with some of the guests, my husband singing and playing guitar and Sophia and Christos joining us.

Air Conditioning, fridge and safety deposit box can be hired upon request. There is a small plunge pool at the rear of the property with a few sunbeds placed around the narrow patio.

The location of the hotel is ideally situated just a few minutes walk from the harbour, beach, tavernas and bars. The Post Office is next door to the hotel and a couple of small supermarkets are located within a couple of minutes walk.

The pebbly beach has sunbeds and parasols for day hire and most beachfront bars charged 7 euros for 2 sunbeds plus parasol. One or two provided a welcoming large jug of iced water and two glasses. Graffitti Boutique had sunbeds/parasols for hire and offered 10% discount on items purchased from their interesting store. The Shore Bar has comfortable padded sunbeds but we found the staff to be disinterested in our custom.

Kokkari harbour is picture postcard pretty, especially the old harbour area. The resort is very windy and this can be deceiving as temperatures were very high during our stay. Also popular with wind surfers who can hire equipment from the nearby Wind Surfers School.

Waves Bar on the harbour front is a lovely place to sit with an evening drink from Monika and watch to sun go down. A few minutes walk from there takes you to the small village square which has a couple of popular bars, Manolis being our favourite. The Restaurant Kokkari located opposite and run by the lovely Kiki and her husband has the most tasty, inexpensive food in Kokkari. Basilico Italian restaurant located on the old harbour is in a very pictuesque setting. We had a couple of delightful evenings dining alfresco with viewsof Samos Town and the coast of Turkey. Sabbina and Besa made us feel welcome and provided excellent service.

We had a relaxing holiday in Kokkari and a very pleasant stay a Hotel Lambros. We would like to thank Sophia and Christos for their warm Greek hospitality. You receive a warm welcome upon your arrival at this hotel and that welcome continues right up to the moment of departure.
