Great food - had the mahi mahi and the shrimp choices for this evening. Since we did not have a reservation, we were seated upstairs away from the main seating area and were somewhat neglected. Did not feel good. Moral of story - make a reservation.

We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again! Food is awesome and staff was very friendly! Pool area is very nice and clean! Sure would be nice if the road to hotel was improved however...very dusty and rough!

We stayed here for one night and we're impressed by the owners and staff. The rooms are clean and very nice most with a back patio which is a great morning coffee. A delicious full American Breakfast was included . Nice restaurant. A little removed from downtown.

Nice hotel on edge of town. 14 rooms, pool, and they have a restaurant with high ratings we were planning on going to but found out it is closed on Sunday. Very poor internet. Basic breakfast, however the bacon was very good. The shower had a unique electric heating element attached to the shower head, but it didn’t work well....

Very professional restaurant and nice establishment. Impressed by all the people coming just to eat there. Kids loved it. Pool was refreshing after the walk from beach. Breakfast was nice to get there. Loved the fresh juice. Clean.

The hotel was better than expected. Very clean with a beautiful pool area and fantastic French restaurant! (Rated #1 in Samara). The staff greeted us by name when we showed up and couldn't have been more polite and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to be back soon myself!

Rooms very nice; bed can be a little bit bigger (now 1.60 x 2.00 meter). Breakfast becomes a little bit boring after 7 mornings. Food in the restaurant is good and the cocktails are perfect. Friendly staff.

Great hotel just outside of Samara about 10 minutes from the beach. The room was very comfortable, clean and reasonably priced. Breakfasts were fine and the pool a great place to lounge around. We ate at the restaurant one night, which was delicious. Highly recommended.

We were two families, 4 adults and 4 kids and had a great time staying at the hotel. The hotel was off the beaten path just enough to be a fun adventure without being a hassle. The two beach areas nearby, a great pool and on-site restaurant made for a relaxing stay. We rented bikes for the whole crew, which...
