Just back from two weeks stay in Argo apartments, we went with Budget travel and had previously read the reviews and thought this place was too good to be true!! On arrival we were greeted by the lovely owners Spiros and Ann and they did every thing in their power to make our stay memorable!

Ann's food was amazing, and the prices were great too. There are also alot of fine restaraunts to eat in locally, we reccomend the chinese across from the apartments "The Flower Garden"

We also rented a motor boat from Spiros's cousin for a very good price and enjoyed going around the coast and exploring the island.
Sprios was very good to us and even took us out for a day in his car and showed us around the island.
we would highly recommend Argo apartments.

If you're looking for a chilled out holiday and an accomadation that is clean, comfortable with the hardest working owners that you would find anywhere then the Argo (was Roula Studios) is the place to go!
We are a young couple but just wanted to catch some rays & were initially skeptic about the reviews as for a 2 star we thought they were too good to be true but it was exactly as people described it. After spending our one week there we came home refreshed, golden brown and sad that we had to leave. Benitses itself is quiet compared to somewhere like Kavos with only a few restaurants and bars added with a few tourist shops so if you're looking for night life then this isn't really the place for you.. The beaches were full of pebbles, however the water was beautiful and we rented a speed boat which we were able to use by ourselves & i drove myself, as the girlfriend laid back in the sun, loved it!!! From a man we later found out was Spiros (owner) cousin!! On the first few nights we ate in some of the local restaurants which were decent, however once we started tasting Anne's home cooked food at the Argo we didn't see much point eating anywhere else, plus it was much better value for money.
We stayed in double room which was excellent. It was at the top of the building with our own balcony overlooking swimming pool, very clean there is air con (have to pay) but we had a fan plus balcony doors open which was fine.
Spiros and his wife made us feel very welcome and they really tried to make all aspects of our stay as comfortable as possible, Spiros even gave us a lift into Corfu Town.
All in all a great time had and would defo go back one day, its not to busy /noisy and you feel safe so good for families. Enjoy folks we did!!

What a great holiday we have just had at the Roula Apartments, Anne and Spiros can not do enough for their guests and after 2 weeks we left feeling as if we had made friends for life. The whole place is spotless including the pool, the food is fantastic (wish I could cook like Anne) and the ambience is friendly, relaxed and like visiting friends every day. We have always said that we would never return to a place as we like to have new experiences but we are already looking forward to returning here in the not too distant future.

We went in the last week of may. A lot of restaurants hadn't opened up they were starting the following week. The resort of Benitses was very relaxing and very friendly. The roula studios has a lovely swimming area with pretty gardens surrounding it. The owners Anne and Spiros were very helpful. Spiros made us laugh all week such a character !! The rooms are very small and like most greek rooms very basic they could do with a lick of paint and new sheets and blankets. could have been a little bit cleaner.The meals there were very nice.Our best meal was in the chinese restaurant opposite.If you go avoid room 6 as my daughter had this room and your view was another roof ! The beach was a bit of a disappointment as it is very pebbly and when you go into the sea there are great big rocks and consequence very sore feet !!! All in all we had a good week.The weather was in the 80's to 90's most of the week.

Roula Studios were exactly what my partner and I were looking for; quiet, clean, simple: a relaxing getaway.

Anne and Spiros could not do more to make us feel welcome and comfortable. They had extensive knowledge of the area and public transport. Anne's cooking was absolutely delicious and not expensive.

Benitses is quiet and not overly crowded by tourists but still has all the necessities you want in a resort. There are several restaurants and shops, all of which are a few minutes walk from the secluded Roula Studios.

We walked 3km down the coast towards Corfu town, which we could have got to by bus, to go water skiing (although there was a place in Benitses that offered it - we wanted to have a look around). It was fantastic!! I really recommend it although maybe walking back after wasn't such a great idea on the leg muscles!!

We also took a glass bottom boat ride from Old Port in Corfu Town which was very good and included a sea lion show.

We had been hoping to go scuba diving but our tour rep (later sacked) was rather unhelpful and did not let us know until it was too late to book. This is no reflection on the Studios themselves but Olympic. My advice would be to ask Spiros about activities you can embark on.

The pool was clean, as were the rooms. The maid service was regular and good.

I was rather disappointed once we arrived that we were only staying one week - I have no doubt that I will return there in the future. I cannot believe it's only a 2* - I would recommend it to anyone.
