LOVED our stay at Glicorisa!!
Opinión escrita el 10 de Septiembre de 2021
Basically, we can't stop raving about our amazing experience at Glicorisa Beach Hotel! They follow Covid protocol rules. Hotel is very clean and well-situated. Five minutes away by car to Pythagorio town/port and right on a beautify beach. Clear pebbled sea with calm turquoise water! We decided to drive around Samos and at the end of our 5 hour drive decided we had actually hit the jack-pot in regards to location!! Beautiful calm bay that is across Turkey. There is also a wonderful beach bar below which we fell in love with as well. The food is delicious and fresh, with excellent service and ambiance. Comfortable rooms and if you have the Seaview room (which was our case) you will see the most spectacular sunrises!! Postcard view with beautiful garden below and great buffet breakfast to please the most difficult. You get to eat your breakfast and look at entire bay and hear the waves. If you are looking to find a nice hotel with all accommodations, then look no further. Highly recommend this gem of a place.
Nice hotel, HORRIBLE beach bar

The hotel faces a small picturesque bay. The water there is clear and calm, perfect for swimming. The hotel itself is not fancy, but absolutely perfect for a beach holiday. The staff is friendly and happy to help (organize a rental car, call a taxi, etc.). The rooms are cleaned once a day, and just as well considering the sand that you bring from the beach.
The breakfast, however, is disappointing. For people, who want to eat a healthy and balanced diet, there is not much to eat. The butter, jam and Nutella comes in little plastic tubs and looks highly processed (Have they heard of the environmental crisis?). If you are vegan, get used to bread and watermelon, because that's basically all there is to eat.
The real problem there, however, is the beach bar. As far as I know, the beach bar was run by different people last year, but the owner changed. So now get used to a huge menu with low quality food. As it is the only way to get lunch there, we had to eat there or starve, but my stomach did not just hurt once afterwards. Again, vegan people will have to turn into vegetarians or not eat at all.
On the beach there are umbrellas and deckchairs, which you have to pay for, but it's only 6€ for 2 chairs and an umbrella, so that's perfectly fine. There is also service on the beach and you can order from the beach bar, but everything is served in plastic cups and Styrofoam boxes. Considering the strong winds on Samos, it seems like the owner of the beach bar is trying single-handedly to increase the amount of plastic in the Aegean Sea by 30%. I picked up receipts and plastic cups from the bottom of the bay more often than I care to remember. It baffles me how in 2021, a business owner who depends on the beauty of the sea can be so ignorant (and stupid) when it comes to plastic waste and environmental issues.
And to top it all off, the beach bar is trying very hard to create a hip and modern vibe, meaning beach goers are harassed by incredibly loud EDM music (most of them awful covers of good originals) when trying to relax on their deckchairs. There were times when I couldn't have a conversation with my partner, because I couldn't understand a word he was saying. We asked them to turn down the music, but they answered that the people at the beach wanted it that loud. Since most people there were either older than 60 or young families with little kids, I highly doubt that they appreciated the unbearable noise on the beautiful beach. The bay is so beautiful, but the atmosphere is unfortunately destroyed by the blaring music on the whole beach.
An amazing expierence

In my first visit to the magical island of Samos, I wasn't sure whether or not I made the right choice when we decided to stay at the Glicorisa Beach Hotel. Turns out it was the best decision I could have made. Walking into the place, I was greeted by the amazingly kind and helpful staff of the hotel. The food, as well as the view from my room, was superb and way better than any other hotel I've stayed in before. The best part was the fact that the pool and the beach were so close to the rooms that I could easily go for a quick swim whenever I wished to. After the swim, it was the perfect chance to relax at the beach bar, where I could either have a refreshing drink or have something delicious to eat from the bar. So, in conclusion, I am definitely going to visit Samos next year and stay at one of the best hotels this island has to offer, Glicorisa Beach Hotel.
Nice hotel, great staff, wonderful beach

We chose Glicorisa because of it's location and beach. There are not many hotels with a beach in front in Samos. The island is great, it is a lot better to stay in the south. North is windy most of the time. Glicorisa is in a small bay with an excellent beach. You can spend all the time in the hotel. It is very close to Pythagorion. 10 min by taxi. No need to rent a car if you do not want to see other beaches around the island. We did and we've decided that Glicorisa beach is possibly the best in Samos. Other good ones are Klima and Posidonio. Rooms are basic, clean. Bathroom could be better but no big issue. We had a room with nice sea view and a garden in front. Breakfast is average. Overall good value for money.
Nice place, excellent staff
