we stayed at these apartments in may and june 09. enjoyed it so much we are going back in september. the owner is very friendly and always smiling, and speaks very good english.
Location of these apartments is ideal - right by the salt flats and five minutes from the beach and the centre of Alikes. Rooms are of an adequate size and some are very big. Balconys are lovely.
Having been to Alikes for the last 11 years and stayed in various apartments, there are basic facilities and there are basic facilties!
We stayed at Argiros from 21st-28th and had a really fantastic time. The apartment (no5) was basic but clean,spacious with a fantastic balcony. Not a mosquito bite in site which must have been down to the screens on the doors and windows which we left open every night. We hired a fan from Mr Argiros...a friendly and charming man who has a keen interest on saving energy(don't leave your lights on!). We used the pool at the Clio which was beautiful, well maintained with friendly staff who are always ready to help. Friday night Greek night ...is a must. Another restaurant we would highly recommend was The Olympic - Amazing 5 star food at incredibly low prices. All in all a brilliant and relaxing holiday, we would definitely return to Argiros Apartmentsand Zakynthos.
I stayed here from the 7th aug 08 for 2 weeks, the apt was big with the room i stayed in had 2 single beds. balcony nice size also. bed sheets and towels only get changed on a thurs and sunday, and same with cleaning also. overall a tidy location just behind salt flats, can use the pool of clio hotel or pothos apts.
hi there, were staying at argiros in aug for 2 weeks, although ive been several times before ive never stayed here before, and was wondering do they have air con and if so whats the charge any info welcome cheers dee
The facilities are very basic, so if you are looking for a real self-catering holiday then it may not be for you, but as we eat out every evening and almost every morning it did not bother us.
We had the two room apartment and the view from the door was breathtaking. It was extremely large and had plenty of room for the four of us and when another 6 family members joined us.(see pics)
The only thing that spoilt it was a boiler fault. a continuous noise that started at 5am and meant we were up with the sunrise (not an altogether bad thing!). The owner did all he could for us, and when it became too much he switched off the water overnight (with all residents agreement). Unfortunatly our last day was also St Dennis' Day and so he could not get a plumber in.
The location is excellent, just a 5-minute walk through the salt flats and your in the main resort/at the beach. This means that it's far enough away from all the noise. The triple glazed doors+mosquito doors+slated door also meant that, when closed, even the karaoke from the Panorama was silenced (this finished at 12)
Dennis and his family at the Panorama also did everything to make the stay enjoyable. There is no issue with using the pool whenever and there are normally plenty of sun loungers at all times. Word of warning though - put your shoes on - the poolside floor gets very hot.
Cleanlines was adequate. We tended to rise late and our bins were not being emptied. After a chat with the owner, he asked us to either leave them out or let him know when we left.
Really good appartments with very friendly and helpful owner. Short
walk from the beach and town centre. Quiet location but there is a bar
and pool in the apartments next door if you want them. Lift to all
floors. Well recommended
went to argiros in 2003 and it was brilliant owner very friendly and people next door in panorama couldnt do enough they allow you to use pool as argiros has no pool wouldnt hessitate to go back in future.
We stopped her in July 2004 the apartments weren't brill but if your just looking for somewhere to sleep and scrub up its ideal. The owner Arthur is absolutely lovely and so helpful, he brought us fresh vegetables from his allotment everyday. We would defiantle go back to these apartments again.
Stayed in Argiros Aprtments last July - very clean and spacious. Pine furniture and lovely balcony with views of the salt flats and the sea. Owners live on top floor and are very friendly. Take plenty of mosquito spray and plug-ins for the evenings. It was so good we're going back in August 2004.
Myself, husband and 2 boys are staying at the Argiros apartments the end of June, has anybody stayed there recently and if so what was it like?? any comments/advice would be appreciated.
General info about Alikes/Alikanas.
Couldn't fault really. It was fairly basic but if you view your self catering accomodation as simply somewhere to rest your head at night then it's no problem. The apartment was a slow 10 minute walk from the town centre and beach but far enough away to be quiet at night.
This was the first of many trips, hopefully, to Alykes and we were completely satisfied with the Argiros studio where we stayed. It was roomy, very clean and, for Greece, the kitchen was extremely well equipped! loved it and would return tomorrow!
We liked the apartments so much we are coming back next year. And probably the year after and the year after until we can buy our own place! See you in August.
