“relaxing in the sun!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

we have been going to Argassi for about 17 years and find the people friendly and helpful,We have stayed at the Timotheos a number of times and have always enjoyed our stays there.It is the perfect location for the beach (2 minutes) and shops and restaurants (recommend The Stars and Ethnic),We will be going back again(hopefully!)

We had a lovely 10 days at Timotheos Studios in August to September 2012. Was very worried about my choice of accommodation after reading a review from August of the same year but when we arrived i honestly couldn’t believe they were talking about the same place.
We travelled in a couple (aged 23 and 27) and stayed here from 26th August -5th September 2012.

We stayed in a self catering apartment which had 2 beds, Flat Screen TV, Safe, Aircon, Bathroom, Kitchenette and plenty of storage space and hangers. It was exactly what i wanted and expected for 2star in Greece as this was probably my 15th visit to Greece. Maids came in everyday to clean (was defiantly not dirty and did not smell), ok decor was a bit dated but who actually spends all their time on holiday in the room?!? Aircon and Safe cost us 60Euro for the 10 days which i thought was brilliant. Was very surprised about the TV, never had that before in Greece but was good to catch up on all the Paralympics action.

The Staff were absolutely brilliant; the lady who runs the apartments is lovely! And the couple who run the bar made our holiday. So welcoming and helpful couldn’t do enough for us i can’t understand how anyone would think they were horrible. We met several couples who go to Timotheos every year; some were on their 10th trip.

Pool area is small but you always get a sun lounger and pool was clean. So nice and breezy chilling out there, much better than the beach, which is pretty poor. Argassi is not the best place for a beach holiday but you can venture out to some of the other beaches on the island. Also the food they serve at the pool was awesome and really cheap.

Location of the apartments is brilliant, you can get to everything easily. Argassi is not a large resort but there’s loads of bars and restaurants to keep you occupied. Would recommend the restaurants Stars, La dolce Vita and Ethnic. Ethnic was amazing. They cook various meats on a spit, my boyfriend became rather obsessed with this place and the women that owned it were lovely. Avoid Premier at all costs over priced, slow service and horrible food.

Avalon bar sell lovely frozen cocktails, Jungle bar is nice to relax in, Legends and beer academy were good for watching football. After was good for baguettes and Crepes.

Would recommend the Ship wreak 4 hour cruise to anyone, was such a fun day out. Only cost 22Euro. We spent an hour at the ship wreak sunbathing and swimming and also went to the blue caves for more swimming was wicked.

Was very impressed with how cheap everything was in Argassi as a whole, i came back with spending money which never usually happens.

Would recommend Argassi to couples and families and would definitely recommend Timotheos to people.

After twoo years,in wich I missing, I came back fondly in Greece, this time choosing the island of Zakyntos.
The hotel is nice and clean,situated less than 100 m from the sea,room was big enought for twoo people and no more than a child.Older furniture,but caring,it was compose of twoo beds wich could easily unite,a dresser with mirror and five drawers,a great dressin on a wall,twoo stools and two candle holders for suitcases.Room size,about 20 sqm.
Balcony,2,5 m long and 1,7 m wide , fitted with a round table and twoo chairs,have great views of the pool and sea,as are all the first floor balcony.
The pool was small , with depths between 1,20 and 2,50 meters,but enought for those who wanted to use it,considering that it was little used,everybody preffering beach and the sea.
Central beach,or Paralia as called, with fine sands and very little water up to 150 feet,have sun loungers and parasols,can be rented for 5 euros/pair/per day.
A tip for everyone : don't go with currencies other than euro or credit cards,exchange rates are very bad !
Argassi,is situated at 3,5 km from the port and capital of the island,Zante town. If you want to go there you can use the buses,for 1,6 euro,but only up to 7 p.m and only until Friday.Taxi, Saturday and Sunday the fixed cost 8 euros.
The best and cheapest in the resort are eating at ' The Green Frog " . Employer there was very inspired when he married an Englishwoman ! I don't remember her name but I can say that she spoke the most beautiful English I've heard it ! I understand that she is from Nottingham and was a teacher of English. You should not miss the Green Frog !!!
About the tours that you cand do,I can recommend the both tours of the island by bus and by boat .You won't regret it
Conclude,not before apologing for my English,and warmly recomend a holiday in Argassi,Zakyntos,Greece !
And don't forget the Greek motto ; '' sega,sega " ( Take it easy ,nothing can happen ! ) :))

the island is beautiful , the timotheos studios were a filthy discusting , smelly mess , the poeple were totaly unhelpful to say the least ,,, we arrived at 5.30 am with our 2 children and were greated by no one , stranded by the tiny (pool if you could call it that) in the dark for 3 and a half hours , when someone eventually turned up , we complained and were met with a grunt , ( horrible git ) please excuse my language !!! gave us our keys and was met by the most awfull smell imagionable , JUST DISCUSTING , DIRTY AND I WOULDNT LEAVE MY DOG THERE ..... please dont be fooled like we were by the pics , the good reviews you will probably read like we did are 2,3 and 4 years old , as you can imagine we didnt even check in , we stayed in the xenos kamara beach hotel on the opposite side of the main rd just down a small track ,,, highly recomended for a great , clean and relaxing stay *****, but this cost us an extra £700 to stay , the gross timotheos studios wouldnt even offer any compensation , for being left stranded or the accomedation ... needless to say YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

Room Tip: stay in another HOTEL .

I have just returned from a fab week staying at the Timotheos Studios in Argassi, our party consisted of 2 adults & 3 children ags 4,13 ,16 . I read the reviews before we went & can honestly say I was gutted to say the least by what i had read, but we really had nothing to complain about yes the apartments are 'nt the grandest but they were cleaned every day & the towels changed every other, the people who run the bar / resturant are just the nicest people you could meet they bent over backwards for the customers. Go to Stars resurant were you will get 10% discount our meals were beautiful as was the wine we ate out every night at different places and did'nt have a bad meal ,the beach is just down the street you can see it from the apartments. We ate every morning and lunch times at the apartments the meals were cooked to perfection we met some really lovely people some of who were on there 5,6,7 visit to the resort and i can see why. The Water Park is also a great day out for all also a bonus is that not once did the kids say those famous words 'im bored'
the whole holiday which was great. The only downside to the hoilday was having to come home we all could have stayed just that little bit longer. I would highly recommend these apartments & Argassi just go & have a fab time...

Having read previous reviews had mixed feelings but we had a brilliant holiday. We were a mixed bunch 4- 50 years old, 2-17 years and 2- 70 year olds and every one enjoyed. Slight slope from the road to the studio's and 3 blocks holding 8 studios each. Very basic but that's what you expect in Greece but we had a large balcony which overlooked the pool and the sea. Cleaned daily except Thurs & Sun only downside was that the towels weren't changed enough and there was a hand held shower. Rooms were cooking in the evening but you could hire a fan. Lovely pool and free beds. Snack bar served nice food and drinks were normal price.
The main lively bars etc were only a 5 min walk and it was all flat No hills.Not a nice beach there if you were after a beach hol. My daughter and her friend found enough bars and a mini golf to keep them occupied and would definately go back there again.All in all every one had a lovely time and I would stay in this accomodation again.
