4 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"We have just returned from the Argyro village,which is a family run business who are very helpful and friendly.Our apartment overlooked the garden and was clean and airy and had enough wardrobe and cupboard space,kitchen area although small was user friendly and adequate. Pool/bar area was always kept tip top,bar staff always helpful cheerful and friendly.Dining room very clean and breakfast catered for all tastes. Staff were always available to answer any queries with regards to your travels around the island buses taxis etc.Car hire was done on the premises.The coach return to the airport caused us some problems as it did not arrive, but the family told us not to worry and were immediately on top of the situation, within half an hour the problem was solved they had the transfer company pay for a taxi (air conditioned Merc)to take us to the airport,thank you very much Billy!(one of the brothers). We liked it so much we are planning on returning in September for two weeks. Thank you to all the family and staff for making our stay memorable. "

IGNORE ANY BAD COMMENTS about this place...
"IGNORE ANY BAD COMMENTS about this place it is truly in beautiful surroundings you will not want to go home!! i have been comming for about 8 yrs several tmes a year when i was younger with no ties. i never wanted to go home and within a few months returned again. The owners are so caring and argyro the lady owner take GREAT pride in how the hotel looks and feels to people, the 5/5 review hadent taken all into account there was a family berevement when they whent so all may not have been so good as it is tradition for them to wear black and no party or spirit of laughter for a year out of respect we went arround that time and things were different but myself and partner returned a year a so later and all was back to normal. as i mentioned there is alot of pride taken the owner can be seen out each evening tending to the beautiful flower gardens, as for accomodation it is true that some rooms are better than others i have stayed in both olympic and first choice olympic were alot more basic but still ok as the other commenter said its more down to the travel company than owner they have no say. the owners are VERY welcoming and friendly and nothing is ever too much trouble the food on sight is nice and a good choice for all of foreign and traditional chip buttys if you like!!! i must admit it is cheaper to get the trips alone away from reps it is well worth the trip to the water park i have spent many days hear is about Â£7-8 entry tho discount for familys .But its an all day thing fab for food reasonable prices too and loads of stuff to do for all ages,the big water slides are in the mountains the views are breath taking. Afandou square is about 5 mins away by taxi or 20 min walk if ur mobile its a nice leisurely walk and come 6-7pm a cool time to walk and its nice to work up an appetite before an evening meal and if after 1 too many only 5 euros back Â£3.50 there are many reasurants and shops all very welcoming . For shoppers during the day i recomend falaraki its a long stretch of suvenire shops by day and come night time for the younger couple or singles, a hive of pubs and clubs well worth going with a rep on this trip i always think they give you team spirit chance to make friends and a steer in the right direction home if you have on to many!!! there is a bus stop out side agyros to falaraki which was easy during the day,ive neva done night time.tho coming back on a bus was a wait in heat during the day i reccomend a taxi back costing about 10 euros. all in all this is a great place to go for couples,elderly and familys. if given the chance you'd come to live hear hope this helps and if your going you will NOT be disappointed were gong back as usual in june and september when possible tho these are the more quieter times perfect for us tho. ;0) "

"Myself and my husband have been coming to this hotel for the last 8 years, till his sudden death in 2005. We have never had any problems as the staff are very friendly and polite and the apartments are kept clean as is the bar area and pool. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The Olympic rooms are more basic than the First Choice ones as they will not pay to have them upgraded so don't blame the hotel owners, blame the travel company. I have stayed in both and was right next to the road and never had a problem. I returned in 2005 to scatter my husbands ashes on the beach and was very impressed with the level of concern the staff showed me. I also returned in 2006 alone and was greeted like an old friend. The village is a bit away if like me you cant walk very far but for 5 euros approx 3.50 you can have a door to door taxi service. It is worth not being a skinflint to arrive in the village for your evening meal not all hot and bothered after you have gone to the trouble to get dressed for the evening. The apartment is by far the best in the area and I have studied many around there and can say this hand on heart. I fully recommend them every time. My friends came in May with me and they had to stay at Golden Sands, but spent most days round our pool at the Agyro as they preferred it by far."

"Itâs the luck of the draw with this place, or at least the company you travel with. To be allocated one of the best rooms, you definitely have to go with First Choice - new, nicely decorated, all air conditioned and away from the road. Do NOT go with Olympic, youâll get a tatty ground floor, hot, badly furnished hole like we did - right next to the road! We knew Olympic guest always get the poor rooms - their paperwork has been stuck to the back of the door for sometime! The complex itself is nice but quite a walk from the village, which has some lovely restaurants and very friendly people, unlike the family who run the Argyro. Thereâs a great bar on site but you can easily feel like an outsider once the "clan" settle themselves in for the night! Prices at the bar not bad - may differ depending on who serves you - check your change! A MUST is to visit the water park in Faliraki - amazing if youâve got kids (or even if you havenât). Donât spend money on trips through your rep- public transport is cheap (although times can be erratic) and boat excursions cost a fraction of the price if booked direct at Rhodes harbour."
