“Holiday Memories”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

My family and I stayed at the Admiral Hotel on three occasions june 2005,june2006and june2007 and every time we had a fab time some of the best with the world cup on in 2006 we made some great friends had good banter with them always something to do during the day for my then 8year old son and plenty to do at night.The entertainment staff were excellent Sam.Steph,and Tina we got to know them really well went out with them at night and in the day when they had a day off so something must have gone badly wrong.When we went in 2007 sam and steph had left but sam came on holiday and she ended up doing the entertainment as the girls who shud have done it had an accident so she left but sam made that holiday they are the sort of staff the hotel needs ones who get on with the guests and make them feel welcome.wouldnt go to this hotel again.after reading the reviews. If anyone out there remembers sam and steph from 2005-2006 post it on trip advisor or if you know where they are now post that as well.we actually travelled june 2005 2006 and 2007 so ignore the june 2013 date

We arrived in the early hours and was taken to out hotel by taxi. When we arrived we were greeted by a miserable old man!! We asked for air con and he told us we must wait until morning if we wanted air con (which really wasn't worth the wait).
On the morning my husband an my 5 year old daughter went to the pool area to get something to eat from the snack bar and was told that they wasn't serving food (all inclusive hotel an not serving food) the all inclusive drinks were also warm from the heat of the sun.
When we did finally get something to eat and drink we sat around the pool an was attacked constantly by wasps.
We only stayed around the pool area for a day because if u don't get up early enough then u don't get a sun bed.
We didn't eat or drink at the hotel as it was terrible food all we did was sleep there, when we did finally get to sleep because we were woken up constantly through the night with people shouting and banging.
We were also told by an English family that they had seen a women change her tampax by the pool area.
Full of polish.

We did find a lovely pool area by the beach which we went to everyday. The staff were friendly and the food was beautiful.
The local pubs and restaurants were excellent. Apart from the hotel Argassi was beautiful.
We are going back to Argassi August 2014 as we found a lovely hotel along the beach. Will never go back to this hotel.
Also to end it all of the hotel from hell. My sons coat and few other items were pinched from our room.

Stayed August 2013

Stayed here in 2005 the hotel was not that great. In 40 degree heat our hotel room had no a/c we were told there was not other rooms available till the next week. So we had to unpack all our stuff and move rooms a week later! Very annoying! Rooms were very small even the family rooms and one double bed was in the kitchen! Room was also very dark! We did not eat there instead we went to captains hotel to eat dinner and breakfast which was lovely! The hotel pool is very small but then again so is the hotel :( toilets were very dirty but entertainment was good! :) hotel is in a good location :D

The hotel is quite nice and the room we had was very good. It was clean and modern with a large bathroom. Cleaners came every day, towels and sheets changed every third day. As mentioned in previous reviews the main customer base here are Polish, about 95% and the rest are Russian, English and a few Swedes. We never experienced any direct rudeness from these people as such ( again previous reviews) but when my wife and i said "Hello" or "Good Morning" we was just blanked out out completely. We did notice that they only spoke to those they were on holiday with and completely ignored anyone else, even their own countrymen.....very odd. We came to the conclusion that these folks are socially inept and are not sure how to behave or react to others. The staff here were fine, especially the Greek staff and Giotta, the lady at the snack bar was very nice and chatty even when inundated with people waiting to be served. The swimming pool was ok but got a bit crowded at times and unfortunately too close to the road, so there was quite a bit of engine noise at times from passing traffic. The food was not that good we are afraid to report. Small frankfurter sausages, beans, eggs and some sort of onion mush for breakfast??. Luckily we found cereals or yoghurt and honey instead. Lunch was chicken something, meat something, a quiche something and chips, there was also spag bol. That was always there, even in the evening. Dinner was much the same. The dining room was small and got very crowded with the inevitable barging in. And once the Poles all started talking at once it got really loud and it sounded like we was surrounded by angry wasps. So, despite paying over the top for All Inclusive, we ate out most days, just like the other Brits and Western Euro's we met here. Beer was ok, spirits limited, mixers poor and some kind of low life brand.. We found it best to get our own from the supermarket. Argassi itself... well its ok. By the look of it, it must have buzzed a few years back, but now due to All Inclusive hotels it seems the resort is slowly closing down as the Poles etc don't venture out that much it seems and the Brits and others are not going there because of them. Such a shame as there are some great eateries and bars there.
We do feel however that the British travel agents must know about these hotels and should tell their customers.
So Dear Reader if you would take advice from seasoned travellers, please don't do All inclusive when in Greece, you will only find Eastern Europeans in those hotels. There are many, many fine eating places and bars to be found and of course the fantastic Greek people who will make sure you have a great time.

Room Tip: If you must book this hotel go for a high room

I have stayed on the Admiral / Commodore/ Captains complex before, so thought I knew what to expect. I knew it was a 'budget' holiday and so wasn't expecting 5 star treatment. However, good manners cost nothing! The hotel has certainly gone downhill over the last 3years. The attitude of many of the guests and the hotel staff was appalling, meal times resembled a cattle market and anyone hoping to utilise the 'all inclusive' facilities will be in for a nasty shock. This was one of 3 hotels we stayed in after marrying on the island in August 2013 (the two other hotels we stayed in, although still budget accommodation, were fabulous, clean & with friendly staff /guests). Some of our wedding guests purchased gifts for us which they left with reception staff to pass on to us as we checked in..... these were never received! We attempted to eat at the hotel on the first day only, but didn't attempt again. Only the English bothered queuing - everyone else simply barged through, the food was left out for long periods of time and uncovered with flies crawling over it. The pools were filthy (which didn't really affect us as the sun beds constantly had 'reserved' towels on them anyway so there was no chance of using the pools) and the majority of the staff were ill mannered, rude & bad tempered (the friendly young lady on the reception desk in the Admiral was the exception to the rule). The only positive comment I can make is that our room (in Admiral) was clean, bright and we received maid service daily. I hate to leave so many negative comments, but they are a true reflection of how i and 14 of my family felt.

Room Tip: Rooms in Admiral are better than in other parts of the complex.

We stayed at the admiral hotel in argassi for one week In September . Obviously a lot quieter than in the peak summer months but everything was still in motion ie excursions etc. receptionist lady and theo the manager were always very helpful and did all they could for us ie change our rooms and give advice on the local area. Our rooms were cleaned daily and clean towels etc were also given daily. The pool in the admiral was right on the main road so didn't really use it that much so spent the days on the beach. Beach narrow but sandy and the water was warm and crystal clear. Entertainment ok not fantastic, was repetitive in the sense that every night there was a kids disco that played the same tunes every evening then you have a different part each evening then a disco that was done in the hotel foyer??? Would have been better in the actual disco hall I felt. Breakfast was nice. evening meals were excellent and had no complaints with the food. the drinks consisted of cheap fizzy drinks that were warm but then i suppose you could add ice if you wanted too , house red and white wine which had rather a twang to it in my opinion, no cocktails other than make your own, and the beer was lowenbrau beer which in my opinion would of been better if it was mythos or a choice of either. Went to the shop across the road for cans of mythos. Lots of polish/Russians who were nice enough but felt a bit of a loner being British. Overall hotel was nice and food was excellent. Drinks were ok but could have been of a better standar, but fulfilled out needs. Poolside snacks were nice, salads toasties, burgers and chips. The m

It is a very nice hotel: with lovely and helpful staff, clean ( room was tidy up every day), really good food ( breakfast were repeatable, but there was everything what you could have for breakfast, so I cannot understand why people complained about below...), quite good entertainment in the evening. We had no toaster or kettle in the room, although there was no issue for us as the bar in walking distance:), but there was a fridge. When booking it is worth to ask for a sea view. Quite nice swimming pool. Really good thing that visitors could use facilities of Captain ( beautiful view from restaurant and swimming pool area to sea) and Cammodore.

Argassi itself is nicer than other towns, although beach is not excellent.There are free buses to Banana Beach and walking distance to Zakhyntos. Taxi from airport cost 16 euro( no buses from airport)

We rent a car, so we visit other parts. Definitely worth to go Keri, Laganas ( Camao Island),
Porto Limnionas, Aristeon Olive Press & Museum, Agios Nikolas ( take a boat trip with Thediosis-15 euro to Blue Caves and Shipwreck). Moreover you can see another life on Zante, but be prepare that roads are narrow.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view when booking
