Hi to Nikos, George and Sinbad. We went to Argassi in May, weather was superb, and this bar was the one we ended up in every night. These guys are fantastic! Cheers Big Ears! Friendly place, but never got round to eating there. See you all again next year. Steve & Inspector.

Gazebo Inn - (Accommodation in Argassi)

We stayed at the Gazebo in May, clean, but very basic. nice pool adjacent at the windmill appts. Taxi easy to get, cost about 15 to get to Laganas, but wasnt all that impressed. too expensive. enjoyed the nights out in argassi. spent most nights in the appollo bar.

went to argassi in may with manos. overall not too bad, rep not seen too often after the hard sell at the welcome meeting. the only thing that got my back up, was when a not was stuck on our door that we HAD to fill in the holiday evaluation form in order to get out return flight details.We HAD to give it to the rep at a specific time on our last day, interrupting any plans. I always thought these things were optional, but not according to manos.Wonder what would have happened if we hadnt gone? had to stay in argassi ???? damn.

stayed in gazebo last year. going back to argassi in june. appartments are clean but very basic. we had a double room on the ground floor (2 floors altogether) looked over to pool at windmill 20mtrs away. its about 5 min walk to center of argassi so not too noisy. loads of bars & restaurants in centre.we thought argassi was great, can't wait to get back there. staying at athina this year. oh, make sure you take your own towels as we got two threadbare tiny things.room was in shade, so not bright inside.

We heard the 50 euro story somewhat differently from SINBAD himself when we were over there last year. Note that HE told US, and he was rather upset about it, we wouldnt have known otherwise. He told us that there was a mistake with the change, but instead of sorting it out with him, as any normal person would do, and getting the till checked, the guy ran straight back to the bar next door to tell them how he had been ripped off. I disagree very strongly with the way Sinbad was described. Very Nice guy.

Volimes has the most rugs I've ever seen in one place. Anybody who's been knows exactly what I'm talking about. It was Rug City.

Got back yesterday. Had a great time again. Managed to see George once, he was looking well. Dimittri and Sinbad make a good team together. I proposed to my girlfriend in a restaurant, and all the guys in the bar really made the night special for the both of us when we got back. Oh, and it was nice to meet you Shelley, although fleetingly. All in all a fab return to Argassi. Thanks guys.

we stayed here for a week at the end of june, and had absolutely no problems at all. saying that though, we never had anything to do with the staff or amenities. we didnt like the look of the pool, always seemed to have dead flies in it, so went down to one near the sea most days. never ate there, and never went to the bar, we had made friends at the apollo bar last year, so usually went there.the room was very clean, bright, and the maid came about three times to clean, changed the beds once in the week, and emptied the bin/poo bucket about four times. we paid 45 euros for a safe and the air con for the week, which we thought was reasonable, as the holiday itself was quite cheap. we thought overall these were very good appartments, if you keep yourself to yourself and don't speak to the owners. we have stayed in much worse in argassi - gazebo inn, last year, now that was a s**t hole, but don't get me started on that one.......

We stayed in room 13, not unlucky.As previously stated, we didnt have a problem with the place and found it quite clean, but didnt have anything to do with the owners. The room had a safety deposit box, which we paid for when we paid for the air con.Think it was 45 euros for the week for both, but couldnt swear to it. It had a small kitchenette thing, all in one 2-ring hob, sink, fridge and cupboard Cutlery wasnt extravagent, but it never is in Greece. We had to go out and buy a cheap corkscrew, 50p. We didnt have any of the problems that have been mentioned on this site, maybe we were an exception.

Hi, this is a message to anyone who has been to the bar lately. I see that George is in the latest picture. How is he doing, as he was very ill a while back. I hope that he is ok, he is a top bloke, and I see that Sinbad isnt in the picture. Has he stayed away this year ???
We cant make it over there this year, but will return.... some time.....

Hi Sinbad, yes, the emails the same. We cant make it over there this year. Jen and I get married next year. We are trying to find a holiday for Jens sister and her fella, and are looking at Argassi as we know they will love it. We will be directing them, of course, to the Apollo!!
