Hotel Giada, Samara
Great stay on main street of Playa Samara
Loved the location just two blocks from Playa Samara and on the main street! They even have a small private parking lot across the street plus two spots beside the hotel in addition to on street parking in front. the staff was the best. The place is very pretty with its two pools, landscaping around the pool area and flowers hanging from flower boxes below balcony doors. The only negative was that we could never get any hot water when we needed it. A huge bonus was the on site restaurant which looked like the classiest place in Playa Samara. It had spaced out tables, classy decor, was breezy with nice fans and open to the street, diverse menu (not typical beach bar food), and the wonderful perk of keeping any food that you did not finish at a meal in the kitchen refrigerator to serve you later. We did that with a pizza we got at lunch, eating the rest of it as an appetizer with our dinner. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly despite not having hot water when we wanted.

Close to all amenities and comfortable rooms. Kacy and pool are nice and clean. Wish there was a continental breakfast option that wasn’t so expensive.
