“Best holiday ever”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

We are just back from the best holiday ever , a hidden jem I wish I had found Firstly we read the reviews which turned out to be true all perfect except one in my eyes , we arrived tired and iin the holiday mood , we gathered all our personal things i.e wallets passports etc to get a safety deposit box and paid the small amount of €20 for the fortnight for the 2 of us which is nothing compared to what you pay elsewhere , I sat at the bar whilst my partner took the valubles in his pockets etc up to the room where we just left our cases , he came back and were speaking to the barmaid sophia who also bookes people in , when this man appeared behind the bar asking my name , instantly I thought something had happened back home or something had been done wrong with the apartment , he then asked" this will be yours then " I sat with my mouth wide open , to find whilst my partner took the valubles to the apartment the wallet had fell out of his pocket , much to my surprise , kostos the owners wife had found it and returned it with the €700 in it " well I was overwhelmed " and shocked as back home not as many people would be so honest to return it with the money in it , this just set a president for the holiday and the days just got better and better , the resort has around 30 apartments and studios , we booked an apartment which was perfect very clean and spacious , the maid was in cleaning 6 days a week the sheets and towels got changed every 3 days , it had all the facilities to cook if you wanted to , but we found it was that cheap to eat out so never really used anything apart from the fridge ! The meals we had when out and about were excellent if you went down to the restaurant at the panorama " who the same guy owns the apartments" we got 10% discount but the food was really good quality and the service was excellent an average meal for 2 - 2starters 2 main courses , water , and a bottle of wine for €25 , we also tried the balcony restaurant which was just as good but didn't compete with the genuine service from kostas and his father who owned the buissiness and passed it to the sons , this was I genuine family run restaurant with great quality food at such affordable prices , usually after our meal we went to a bar opposite called kazoos , where Kim, Gina , and Tim , we're fab , drinks everywhere were cheap , €2 a pint of local beer , wine around €3.50 a bottle , we tried the beach where you got a lounger and parasol for 2 all day for only 5euro (around £4) the pool at the resort was perfect most people over 30,s and no chavs , some with a family but well behaved no loud music and perfect for relaxing , Sophia was excellent nothing a problem and done some mean bar snacks dirt cheap , to mention you got 6 bottles of 1.5ltr water fir your apartment for only €2 . We booked the air con at €6. A night which was well worth it , I can say that the Thomsons rep Emma - lou brilliant and was there most days and there to help , but I can say people must have really sad lives if they have anything bad to say about this resort , I would strongly recommen this resort and location for a quiet relaxing holiday , if you want to party book kavos!

Everything was fantastik. The poolarea is very nice and the familly who owns the appartements are very helpful. Very nice atmospher. The rooms are simple but very clean! Only thing we didn't like was that the beds where hard and we couldn't get a dubble bed, it was two singel pushed togehter.

It's really close to the mainstreet but still quiet. Must be the best place in argassi! See my blog for photos and text. http://sannagudmundsson.blogg.se/category/grekland-2012.html

Have just arrived back from two weeks holiday at the the Dora's apartments. What a lovely friendly place to stay. It was everything we wanted for a relaxing holiday. the rooms are basic but how long do you stay in your rooms with temps in the mid 30's degree centigrade. It was clean and all the staff were extremely friendly, polite and helpful. Plenty of lovely restaurants and bars close by and only a 5 min walk from the sea. We will be going back in the future

Very friendly service all day round
Next to whatever you want to find - sea, market, the town, restaurants and unique beaches
Quiet and relaxing, children will love it
Ask the owners about special tips and do's in the island

We love Dora's place and keep coming back. It is not luxury that they offer here, but clean, tidy, neat, comfortable rooms on a quiet side street. The location is still close enough to both the beach and the night life, though.

Clean, neat, good price and incredibly friendly service. Good location, close to partying and bars but the place is quiet at night

What a great place. we stayed for a week at the end of september, and wished it was a month.
The Dora Studios are in an almost perfect location just off the main street, so it's a one minute walk to the shops and bars but very very quite after dark. The Dora bar is run by Thomas and Ellenor who are the most friendly couple it has been our pleasure to meet.
Our room was the usual, small but very clean with a full size fridge electric kettle and a two ring electric hob.
If you get the chance, go and stay you will love it.

Graham and Christine.
