We'll be back for yet another visit to this wonderful Hotel, as the name suggests, it is 'family run'. We've been coming here since '98 and have NEVER been dissapointed, rooms are clean, the pool area is the best in Argassi and to top it off, there is a lovely resturant next door called Peppermints!!! What more could you ask for!!
Just returned from holiday at Family Inn Hotel Panioti ang Gorgia made us welcome as always spiro the new barman is a great guy as are all the staff was brilliant to see maggi and tassia at the pool bar just like old times fun and games for everyone really did enjoy holiday Love you all Andy & Norma Lavine
We went to Argassi in May 08, and we always spend our days by the pool at the Family Inn. Unfortunately Mike, Theresa and Karen are no longer working the pool bar.. They are still in Argassi as we caught up with them later but the food was not as varied or as tasty as Mikes. So if you ae going on holiday there be prepared not to have the good quality food and the laughs and jokes as it used to be for the last 4. 4 yearsThe pool is not as clean either
We had a fantastic time at the Family Inn hotel this year. Georgia the owner is a really lovely woman with a heart of gold. She and her husband Panayotis went out of their way as always to make our stay really comfortable. Costas was a great laugh in the bar despite the lack of sleep following his new arrival. (Photo of baby was great - hope the football strip fits.)
10 for location, 5 for facilities, 0 for atmosphere. Rude, unfriendly and very very basic (even for Greece). Hotel run by a Greek woman who can barely look at you without sneering and communicates with grunts and gestures. Pool bar run by typical ex pats with more rules and regulations than I can list. Room for self catering consists of fridge (which is now free of charge), travel kettle and an electric ring. No toaster or micro. Hand held shower hose with tray in bathroom. No aircon which didnt worry us in September. Self catering block not accessible for disabled. Past pool bar, round corner up 6 iron steps, along back of one block, down a step to another path... On the up side it is cleaned each day. The location couldnt be better, just off the end of the "strip" and down a little side road so fairly quiet. Very short 5 min stroll to Argassis tiny beach with a lovely beach bar at the hotel there run by a little girl who takes pride in her clean kitchen and her cooking. People in restaurants work very very hard and are so nice to talk to. Flocas is brilliant for car rental with full indemnity and very good prices. They will also find you a room no matter what time of year if you need it. Nice family. If you do go to Family Inn, take a tea towel, your pillow, couple of old tea mugs and dont forget to feed the cats! Unusual that the Tom has stayed with mum and the babies. Mum likes sardines and a scratch on the head. xx
What a lovely place argassi is but I am afraid that Mr Marsh's comment are correct about the people who run the pool bar at the Family Inn, we witnessed the lady who ran the pool bar checking the bins around the pool area to see if people were bringing their own food into the pool area!!!!! And confronting a gentleman about eating grapes by the pool!!! (which consequently they do not sell at the pool bar). We visited here once as we were staying at the Katerina Palace which was a lovely hotel.
Arrived back last week after another wonderful time at the Family Inn. Great place to relax and chill out. Micheal, Theresa and Tassia, with help from Jed this year do a great job of running the pool bar and pool area. Really good food, wide selection available and a special board. Micheals cakes are a must.
Just got back from Argassi last night me and my boyfriend were actually staying at the hillside apartments but used to come down to the family inn every day to use the pool.
We have just got back from the Family Inn in Argassi. The family inn pool bar is second to none, Mike and Theresa always look after their guests by making you smile and having a laugh. The pool is lush, the pool bar food is absolutely great and very varied!!!!! (Especially chicken a la creme !!!!!)Nothing is too much trouble for them. In the evening we went to the hotel bar Dino's, and we had a geat laugh with Costas. Watching football or wildlife documentarys and we even watched Greek football and basketball. All the cocktails and drinks were very high quality . See you in May 2008 it will be our 15th year of holidaying in Argassi.
A nice quiet location away from the main strip of bars and restaurants, but can feel a little isolated especially in the evenings, as the pool bar closes around 6.00pm.and the Hotel main bar is a bit stuffy and formal.
Sandra the apartments are extremely quiet. There is a super market just at the bottom of the road, about 2 minutes walk maximum. In terms of bars there are a vast array of bars along the main strip which is about 5 mins walk, offering different styles of music. Plenty of opportunity for dancing etc. If you fancy something a bit more lively, then Laganas is about 20mins away - approx 15 euros in a taxi.
Hi Kris Thanks for your help with the Family Inn enquiries. You know it's difficult working out the place when you haven't visited before. You want to get the most out of your holiday for all the Family.
Just back from yet again another 2 great weeks, at the Family Inn. The welcome from Micheal and Theresa and Tassia at the Pool Bar and Peter and Georgia and Kostas really kicked our holiday of to a great start. As usual with the Family Inn the guests all gel and this is what makes it such a great family hotel. Cannot wait to return next year.
The place is fantastic. Not far from shops or other bars, but Dino's place is in the hotel and an ideal situation for final drinks at night.
