.we arrived at the Argiri at approx 2am and was quickly checked in, couldn't wait to chill out. We were given room 106, which I can only describe e as not much bigger than a cupboard with two beds !! Now it's normally me who gets upset if the room isn't up to much, but no my poor husband couldn't get out if the room quick enough, he asked kostas the manager for an immediate room change, he said he didn't have any, my husband refused to stay in the room even for one night because it was so bad, we were then given room 227, which was on the street side but not too bad when you get used to traffic noise, we stayed in that one for 3 days and then had to vacate that one because it had been allocated to people arriving that day, we were then given room 334, you would have to see the pictures to believe it. The bathroom was atrocious. You had to slide yourself between the washbasin and toilet, and then try to slide yourself round to the bath but we did have a view of pool and sea, which was the only positive thing I could say !! then on check out day because of flight times we had to pay extra again (we had already paid £83 for room change on the first one) we were given another room 228, which was the best of them all. Apparently each room is different, but nearly everyone we met were disappointed in the rooms. If you do go, go self catering, rooms are bigger, and ask either first or second floor, more secure.
Positive notes......staff were brilliant, kostas couldn't have been more helpful, lovely man !!
Maids were very good, rooms cleaned well, very helpful ! Pool area always kept clean, needs a bit of hazard stripes to point out steps, saw a few nasty accidents, pool tiles need a bit of attention, food served at pool bar was good, the two staff that ran it Debbie and Artemis were good fun,And nothing was too much trouble, if you are bed and breakfast, you will be disappointed, not really much, but Artemis does a lovely breakfast for €4. Anna runs the bar nighttime and she is lovely. Cannot fault any of the staff at all. But the rooms need a good refurb and maybe a few alterations and adjustments to showers etc !!
A few little beach area around the hotel, one just across the road with orange brollies sunbeds and brollies are free, but you are expected to buy from the little bar, but they do nice meals and drinks are cheap.
We found a lovely cocktail/ice cream bar along the front called Calypso . The people who own it are so lovely, Katerina has the loveliest smile and personality, makes you feel so welcome, well worth a visit !! Other places to eat, Agean restaurant, good food, good prices, captains, and avli, which is on the back by bliss bar.
Would highly recommend a visit to the Greek night at Fantasia, lovely trip to Zia to watch the sunset too.
We found Kardemena a lovely place to stay a little run down in places, but the people are lovely!
Had it not been for all the problems at the argiri hotel, my husbands birthday week would have been perfect !! Just a quick mention for George (the olympic rep) who was so helpful and went out of his way to help us.
