It was a pleasant surprise. Very nice, relaxing, and peaceful place. Staff was for the most part VERY helpful in helping me get a car to drive around and in changing rooms to a nice place. It is recommended that you rent out a car to get around the Samos and were very fair. The resturant down the road was very nice and right on the water.
Down side, this place literary nickle and dime you, or charge you for everything from internet access to beach towels. Breakfast was disappointing compare to Turkey. Beach is rocky, but there is a pier where you can go do some really nice snorkeling.
However, I would go back there again.

Nice medium size hotel set in large landscaped gardens on waterfront. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts and dinners ok, but there are two tavernas in the village, both an easy walk from hotel . One is on beach front.
Hotel has courtesy shuttle that runs a couple of times a day to Samos town, about 20 mins. Buses run from Samos town, hotel can organise taxi and parking for hire car is convenient.

Kerveli Village Hotel is 13km from Samos town in a bay that it has almost to itself. It is a lovely setting. The garden is a joy, with three or more colours of bougainvillea and silvery olives contrasting with the dark blue sea. The water is clear and warm. Lying on Kerveli's pontoon is heaven. The bar is a pleasant spot, and there are other nooks for a quiet hour. The food is nothing special. There are two simple tavernas in walking distance. This is a place to unwind and let the tension flow out. I did have a misunderstanding based on my Expedia booking that the hotel was in or near Samos town. It isn't.

We stayed for a week from 30th July and though we have been to Samos many times before we had not been to this area or this hotel. The hotel is located in pleasant and attractive gardens with good views over the sea and mountains. The rooms were a good size and cleaned really well. There is a nice pool and pool bar which has very nice snacks as well as drinks. We stayed b and b and mostly ate in the two nearby tavernas which were good. The food in the hotel restaurant was good quality and uses local produce but staying open a bit later than 9pm would have been good for us. The nearby area and beach down the hill was great. So overall a very nice hotel and would certainly go back
My family stays close by the hotel every summer. We have been using the hotel facilities for 5 years now and have been treated as their own guests. Lunch service is our favorite time of day after a morning swim. Nothing beats their menu of fresh, authentic Greek food. We dream of Seftalia Pita and Souvalki all year round. The bar overlooks the sea, with a scenic view of the Turkish coast on clear days. A toast of Samian wine to the Kerveli Village Hotel!
A wonderful relaxing atmosphere, in a very beautiful hotel. Friendly staff and a great location. Good for a short romantic getaway. The pool is a good size with views of the bay.
The rooms were good but basic, ours had a great sea view, but with no shade on the balcony it was unusable in July. The twin beds were good but the single pillow was inadequate. The aircon is only on from early evening until early morning so the room was completely unusable during the day and at night the aircon was barely good enough to cool the room down.
The pool bar was welcoming and had a great view of the bay and pool. The bar staff were friendly if a little slow with service you have to go to the bar to get served they don't come to your table.
The bay has beautiful clear blue water and there are lots of areas to sit in the shade, but there are a lot of steps to get down to the beach and swimming jetty, it is definitely not for anyone with walking difficulties. The hotel is all steps and steep slopes.
Breakfast in the morning was simple but good food. A little chaotic with everyone tending to arrive at the same time to help themselves at the buffet which was cramped and confusing at first. The coffee was always cold and the hot breakfast was barely warm.
The gardens were beautiful and the views stunning, the place was kept clean and the staff were all very friendly and welcoming.
We stayed for 2 nights on the start of our island hopping holiday to Fourni and Ikaria. It was in a pretty location overlooking the sea. The room was in the main building and reasonably spacious. The pool area was good and the pool bar is very pleasant. We only breakfasted in the hotel. It was a buffet and very average. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful.
We stayed 4 days wthe Kerveli Village Hotel in Samos, Greece and you couldn't have found a more peaceful, beautiful, and private retreat anywhere else on the island! We traveled via car to many other hotels in search of the one that we honeymooned at 25 years ago, and none of the ones we discovered compared! Also, the staff at Kerveli Village were amazing -- helping you sort out what to do and keeping service an A+ in a quiet, friendly and unobtrusive way. We especially enjoyed having many options for swimming (pool, 2 different beaches) and sun bathing (leveled terrace with lounging chairs, floating platform). My favorite was the large floating platform that lulled you to sleep on recliners as you dried off after a swim. And the food -- the breakfasts and dinners were of such high quality that it was difficult to want to go elsewhere on the island! Overall, I highly recommend this hotel. Also, it wouldn't be for people who couldn't easily navigate stairs.
After having stayed now a week in the Kerveli Village Hotel in Samos, Greece, all I can say is I have not been so relaxed for quite some time. Situated in a small bay on Samos island far from the next villages but only about 10 miles from the capital I admired the greenery and flowers everywhere. Just getting to the beach is a bit difficult, but after a couple of days you manage the stairs easily. I liked the breakfast and the evening buffets were also enjoyable, especially on the terrace. My room was rather small but well furnishend and very clean. Decent and friendly service everywhere.
Stayed in the hotel this June and it was great. The hotel is divided into a main building and a few bungalows and is built on a slope in more levels, the highest one being the rooms, then the restarant, then the pool with a snack bar and the lowest the beach (yes there are some steps between the levels but not that much). The room we booked was standard sea view and we got one located in the main building and on the top floor. The view from the balcony was amazing! Rooms were big enough, nice and clean (A/C free, mini fridge, safe and wifi chargeable). The food was good, plenty to choose from and the personal chef's recommendations very welcome. The other staff was also very nice and helpfull. The pool is a bit small but enough for a quick refreshment. The beach is very narrow with pebbles and some rocks, but there is also a pier for an easier water access (the sea was nice and clean, no big waves, not windy). If you are looking for a "real" beach, just follow the road downhill and you will get to a nice, quiet pebbly bay with natural shade (no umbrellas, 2 € for a chair).
If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is the right hotel for you. There is really nothing arround (shops, bars etc.), except the one taverna in the bay downhill, but there is a free hotel shuttle leaving for Vathy few times a day, so you are not totally isolated. I recomend renting a car (reception will help) and going arround exploring the island (there is plenty to do and see). And after an adventure full day, you return to the calm and quiet atmosphere of the hotel ... Totally recomendable!
My husband and I are staying in the Kerveli villas while on our honeymoon. We have loved this place from the moment we arrived! The staff is amazing! Some of the kindest we have met in our entire 2 months of traveling Europe so far! The breakfast is also the best we've had compared to all the hotels we have been too. It's so peaceful and quiet, we feel like we have the island to ourselves and have stumbled on paradise. I almost didn't even want to post a review just to keep it more secret! :)
Absolutely delightful in every way I cannot do justice, through the written word, to the wonderful week that we enjoyed at this hotel. The service was excellent and we were made to feel most welcome from the minute we set foot on the premises. The views are outstanding and possibly the best that I have experienced on my many visits to various Greek islands. The other residents were very laid-back and there was never an issue in trying to secure a sun bed for the day!! There are two excellent tavernas within walking distance but that's only if you feel like eating away from the hotel. The beach is a pebble beach and so I would advise that one takes a pair of reef shoes - not absolutely essential but rather helpful, I would think.The opportunities to swim extended distances exist and we certainly won't be looking at any other place from now on - I just don't think that Kerveli can be beaten, anywhere!!
September in Kerveli village is Ideal place for peaceful relaxing an intensive swimming in warm and calm sea. The mediterranean food served for dinner was tasty and diverse. Wi-Fi was also available at the beach. Hotel is definitely worth to revisit.
