Just returned from this hotel, service and staff are fantastic, they will try and do anything they can to make your stay enjoyable. Really close to the centre and beach, so welcoming. We needed a hair dryer, asked if we could hire one, that evening they delivered the hair dryer to our room.

Room Tip: We had 2 bedroom apartment, really good for families, kitchen was basic but very cheap to eat out in...

Have just returned from our second visit to this hotel and it was just as good as before, if not better. We stayed on bed and breakfast which is perfect for us. The breakfast is traditional continental style which is more than enough for our needs, but if you want a full English then Ivan will be pleased to don his chefs jacket and cook one for you (at an extra charge). We had room 208 on the ground floor this year which was perfect for us. The room was kept wonderfully clean as usual by the lovely ladies who are always ready with a smile. There is now a bar in the reception area where you can relax away from the crowds with a drink in the evenings. This is ideal for families with small children as there are books and games available for all ages to keep everyone amused.
The hotel is ideally situated in the centre of Argassi with a wonderful selection of restaurants to give you plenty of choice. There are also a few beach bars along the front where you can sit with a beer or two watching the world go by. Our favourite was Dimitrios which had a good view of the beaches and Zante town.
Many thanks to Dimitra, Nicos, Paula, Ivan and the rest of the staff who treated us so well and made our holiday so enjoyable. Special thanks to Paula for arranging our anniversary dinner at Peppermint.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys budget, small and friendly hotels where you are treated like family. A real home from home and we look forward to going back next year.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Papillon. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Apartment was cleaned every day, with plentiful supply of clean towels and sheets. Excellent location in the centre of town but not noisy. Plenty of choice of tavernas for eating out. Would definitely recommend to friends. Janet H

The hotel is situated in Argassi which has everything. There are a fantastic selection of restaurants and bars so there is no shortage of places to eat which can make a nice change from the self catering. All restaurants have similar prices and all the ones we tried were very good value. Would recommend dolce vita and Poseidon as well as the papillon restaurant which is just down from the hotel pool. We hired a scooter and toured the island however there are plenty of car rentals and bus stops just off the hotel which are perfect for those who love to explore. When we went in June 2014 we were able to hire a scooter for €13 euros a day and it was just perfect for us. We would recommend a trip to st Nicholas beach for the water sports and beautiful clear waters. Argassi beach is nice but the waters aren't very clear and it is quite short. We love snorkelling and st Nicholas was perfect! There is also an opportunity to try scuba diving at the beach and would really recommend a visit!! The bus is free to St Nicholas and you can catch it from the bottom of the steps from the pool. You do have to but a €4 sunbed to get a return ticket though, the guys don't mess about or wait so make sure you buy one! Also the caretta beach trip to see the turtles is so worth it! We found the hotels location was ideal for seeing the island and found the staff incredibly helpful of we had any queries. The staff were friendly and welcoming and always happy. We went self catering and be aware that there aren't any ovens in the apartments and meals will have to be cooked on a small portable hob but if you're a dab hand in the kitchen you can make it work. If not you may need to take more spending money for the wonderful restaurants. Rooms were always clean however would have liked towels to have been changed more often. I would recommend this hotel as it has the basics and is just perfect for those who want a bit of sun and a lot of travelling around the island. Pool is easily the best in argassi too!

The hotel was very nice and the 2 bedroomed apartment excellent. The staff were friendly and it was not too noisy. The location was ideal for the local shops, bars and restaurants. The only downside were the local buses that did get a bit crowded, apart from that we had an excellent holiday.

We recently returned from a 2 week holiday in Argassi Zakythis, We booked the Papillon hotel on a Bed and Breakfast basis, the rooms were fairly standard which is what we had expected anyway, but they were cleaned every day and fresh towels given everyday which was great. The pool definitely exceeded our expectations, It was a huge pool with a 3m depth at one end, the snack bar had a great selection of food and drink and had a very relaxed atmosphere which was nice, there was also a computer room, two pool tables and a small library. Very clean complex all round. The Papillon restaurant located just beside the apartment complex is a must! I would definitely recommend this place for people who are just looking for a standard room but with great location. I would stay here again for sure.

Room Tip: When booking make sure to ask for one of the more modern apartments, I believe these were much more...
