we booked up to stay in this hotel and my travel agents phoned to find out if it was wheelchair friendly and was told that yes it was but when we got there they was not expecting the wheelchair but after sometime we got moved but they don't really care much about helping you over the phone the receptionist was the most helpful person she tried everything to get me somewhere else the accomodation is all stepped no lift and is up on a very steep hill the only reason i have put the point is due to the receptionist
I arrived back home from Zante, just over a week ago, and all in all, I had a fanastic holiday! The food was definitely limited, any it did get a little boring after 10 days but the evening entertainment surely made up for it! The locals there all seemed to speak basic English and all seemed very friendly and welcoming. The weather in Greece, and in the surrounding greek islands is fabulous, and i would reccomend this holiday to anybody who likes to catch a good tan, as I sure did! As for the hotel, the rooms were okay, and clean, but not to the top of anybodys standards. The hotel staff were also nice to us which was great, but the barmaid seemed a little gloomy! Overall I had a great holiday, meet some fantastic friends that I have kept in contact with since, and had great fun getting involved in activities around the greek isliand of Zante, as there is lots to do, including 2 waterparks, and many types of boat trips to visit the beautiful turtles surronding the island! Thankssss :)
Have just returned from the commodore hotel, I have been there before about two years ago and had a great time, went this time with my mum who is almost 80 years old and all though the hill was a challange and both of us suffer from asthma we managed up and down the hill many times in the daytime. Yes the hotel is basic but it is clean and we found the staff very helpfull and freindly. All the signs we saw were first in English and then in other languages the other nationalities we came across there were also freindly, and most could speake a little english unlike the english including me who could not attempt their language. Food choice is limited but ther was always something you could choose and it was tasty, it would benefit from being warmer though, as for the blue bands you could upgrade to them which means you are then all inclusive for a mear 19 euros a day which we thought was very reasonable as we would have spent more than that every night in a bar, all in all we had a great time and will most likely go back again.
I have just returned from the Commodore I was hoping that the comments left were an exageration but they were not .The food if thats what you could call it was terrible we only ate breckfast once and then we ate out same with the evening meal terrible!!!!!! The rooms were ok but no air con unless you bought it what a con in 40 degrees heat.The plus off having to climb 7 flights of stairs was the veiw. I would go back to Argassi but not the Commordore the hill was a killer I had 2 elderly ladies with me and they struggled.I feel the tour company who sold me the holiday did not give me a fair picture of the hotel there were nothing but Polish people there.If you are thinking of going to Argassi I woul advise the hotel Castello it has good reports on the holiday sites its near the beach and it has a lift.
this place is very basic we went self catering so we ate away from the complex every night and yes full of polish as well no chance of gettin near the pool far 2 busy i felt very left out here as everyone wore blue wrist bands apart from me and my fiancee lol just a shame all these polish are ruinin the resort and the tavernas and bars are closing becauce of this
I really would rate this hotel as ****.
coming here on june 28th as long as the studios ave a bed and shower and a toilet am happy lol as for polish and russians they cant be any worse than the bloomin germans we ave put up with them for many many years lol
Before you read this, i am not one off these people who love to come on these sites just to complain, and complain for no reason, BUT I REALLY WANT TO WARN YOU........DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY COMING HERE!!!!!
just came back from our honeymoon here,yes rooms were basic,but always cleaned very well!!,only gripe really is the bloody walk up the hill in 40 degree heat lol and lack of facillities but other than that a fai r hotel.
this hotel was the worse hotel i have ever seen in my life i would never go there again and would advise people not to go there either, i have learnt to never go by the brocher as it looks a whole lot nicer. When we first got to the hotel it was 8 o clock in the morning and we had to wait half and hour to get into our room because they tried to say we didn't have a room booked. In the brocher it said we could have air condining at a price which we were willing to pay but what we didn't find out was there wasn't any in our room and had to wait 3 days for it and that was only because i kept complaining about it.We were suppose to have a mini oven because we were self catring but we didn't have 1 we had a micwave instead and even if we wanted to cook we could't because we had one saucepan.The bathroom was awful and was crawling with ants there wasn't even a plug in the sink well as for the shower it was so small that half the water ended up on the floor and you would stick to the curtain.For a double bed it was two single bed frames pushed together so you couldn't even sleep together if you tried. I found the staff very rude and took there time to deal with our problems, the maids would just walk in your rooms and one day me and my partner was in bed and she just walked in. The entainment was shocking so we ended up going to a hotel down the road. DO NOT GO HERE for the same price per night go to the CONTESSA they have a TV a balconey a shower / bath air con double bed sofa absolute luxery so go to the CONTESSA
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone!!! We are a family of 5 and was put in 2 apts on different floors, the rooms were mouldy and dirty, bathroom door wouldn't shut and when you sit on the toilet you have to have your feet in the shower tray!! Management are uncooperative and Thomas Cook was as bad, ended up have the first 3 nights with no sleep as they put us in a block of apts with single people, had to take matters into our own hands and find and pay for alternative accommodation.
All I say is if you are looking for basic then this is the place.
I've just come back from Argassi - Commodore Hotel.
It's good enough especially when I spent only nights there (I'm not going for my holiday for spending time in a hotel room).
I' ve been few times in Greece in different hotels (from *** to *****) and the standart everywhere was the same.
Maybe the food could be more varied.
In October it was my first time to Zante. It rained about 4 days out of the 7 i was there but you expect that sort of weather in October. Although it was cold when it rained it did not last for long and it soon went back to being hot again and i still came home with a fab tan. Personally it was far to quiet for me at that time of the year but i still had a fantastic time and Factory is def the best bar in Argassi.
well this place is simply the best and will no doubt been staying in this place again very clean apartments food great as went half board and cody well this guy knows how to make a cocktail and i had loads of them well done to all the Commodore staff on a truely memorable experience
omg could this place get any better? haha! i went last year at exactly the same tym as this year and it was brilliant. argassi is lyk a magnet and people jus keep coming back to it! it was a lot quieter in argassi compared to last year i dont know why maybe it was due to the floods in the north of england stopping people from taking their holidays or something but all the same it was still brilliant!...
for the first week (which was the last week in august) it got up to 50 degrees!! absolutely boiling it was hard to sunbathe lol!!..! but then after that first week the temperature decreased to around late thirties which was nice but felt colder at night coz of what we had bin used to the week before ! haha
spent two weeks here in mid august,first impressions not good, situated on bit of a steep hill,but brill views.arrived in heatwave into one of the few rooms without air-con,managed with hired fan.as holiday progressed we hardly noticed,however for older people especially with mobility problemsthese points would be important.!!apts cleaned every day and clean towels almost every day,hotel only small bar but cody at front of house made up for the lack of entertainment and his wonderful cocktails,would go back here
Well well well.. what can i say.. AMAZING!
Well the factory club is a bar then has a night club which opens up later on, it doesnt always get that busy but theres avalon which gets really good later on bout 11ish. You cant miss it its like a castle from the outside. Magic musroom is also a good bar down on the corner. We used to go to magic mushroom, then kiss bar and then over the road to avalon!!!! Theres loads of abrs that stay open late so you will be fine!
Yes Amy Cody is still there!!!!
Is anybody going to be out in zante between the 23rd august and first few days in september?... and for anyone whos been out there this year is cody still in the hotel commodore?
just back after another 2 weeks and once again it was fab. going to book up for next year again.
