Takis Apartments
Ranked #29 of 72 Speciality Lodging in Sidari
Reviewed 19 August 2012

Stayed in Takis and Efi Apartments for 2 weeks. There were nine of us in total including one 7 year old, two 11 year olds and two 15 year olds. After arriving at 2am in the morning and no one being there to great us we found out that there are keys left in the doors for those arriving late (Efi doesn't know what time people are arriving she just gets notification of how many people on which date and at 66 years old she can't sit up all night)! After the initial shock of no one being there to great us we settled in and had the most wonderful holiday.

Location: The location of Takis and Efi apartments are on the road into Sidari (so there is some traffic noise but not much as set back). The walk into the main Sidari town is about 10 minutes.

Apartments: We had apartment no. 4 which was a two bedroomed apartment and our friends had apartment no.2 ,they were both ground floor, spacious, large balacony and kept extremely clean (we cannot fault the cleaner she works extremely hard on a daily basis). The apartments are a little old fashioned but very clean.

Pool & Bar area: The pool is immaculate and the bar area is kept extremely clean. During our visit the Olympics was on and if you asked Efi if she could turn the bar TV on she always did so willingly. There are fig and lime trees in the grounds and if you asked for a salad they went to the garden and cut the lettuce fresh for you!

Food at apartments: Efi cooks all the food herself and therefore you sometimes have to wait at the bar to be served. Food at Efi's is lovely - stuffed peppers and tomatoes, stifado (at less than 6 euros each), cooked english breakfasts (2 euros). We had a good greek night here with a lovely BBQ and dancing round the pool. Efi actually cooked us a lovely (free) dinner on the last night of our holiday.

The Owners: Takis and Efi are an old Greek couple, Takis is 72 and works in the gardens/grounds most of the day. Efi is 66 and tireless, she is up at about 6am and doesn't leave the bar until midnight and does the majority of work on her own. If you respect Efi and give them the time of day, make the effort to speak a bit of greek and spend your money round the pool they will make your stay a wonderful one.

Overall: We all had a wonderful holiday, if you want traditional greece with clean, spacious apartments and fabulous food then this is the place for you. It wasn't majorly busy and at one point it felt that it was our own private villa and pool! Would definately recommend and am looking forward to going back soon!

Room Tip: No air conditioning units in rooms but you can hire a stand fan for approximately 1-2 euros per nigh...

The Best Of The Best I had a wonderful stay and the owners are excellent regardless of what the other people write especally the 5 young girls that should have been to Cavos not Sidari because there they would have find the people that they came looking for. Anyway, I enjoyed the holiday and it was the perfect one imaginable. Friendly atmosphere, quite place I could sleep till late in the day and clean.

firstly the reviews relating to Effie is a different takis.the takis we just stayed at is run by Dimitris and his partner Litza the pic is that place too it is not possible for this takis to have a bad review...they are absolutely amazing people and really do make your holiday. we spent all our time by the pool relaxing you dont have to fight for a sunbed as theres plenty and its so quiet.we also spent most evenings with Dimitris at the bar as he was so friendly and such a laugh. we met some wonderful people also as with there only being a few rooms everyone gets to know eachother and meet for a drink its great place to stay. Litza is there all day cooking.....food is fab try the BBQ on a wednesday evening its great fun and everyone loved it....its set back off the road and in the perfect location......we are definately going to go back not because i thought Sidari was a gorgeous place as i have seen nicer beaches and places in Greece but to go see dimitris and family as we became good friends.....missing it already...call Dimitris a skilla!

Room Tip: ask for a room by the pool as theres also a block of rooms round the back.......

just returned from two glorious weeks in sidari
efi can not do enough for you , all she asks is you use her bar etc , not much too ask.
she is a fabulous cook and her stifado certainly amongst the best i tasted.
the rooms are spotless and those few girls should be ashamed .
we would certainly be going back for our third time
thanks efi for a wonderful two weeks

Stayed here the last week in July, before our holiday both me and a friend were horrified by all of these reviews and were very wary of where we were staying. However, i can only think you were all staying in a different place! On our arrival our rep showed us to our appartment and we had a warm welcome from Demitris who ran Takis with his wife. Yes the room is basic and bathroom was on the small side but it turned out perfect as we spend little time here only to freshen up and sleep. I can not express how welcomed Demitris made us feel he really made our holiday for us. To be honest both me and my friend were wondering who Effie was as we never met her during our stay and when we saw Takis he was also friendly. The pool area was fab and everything was clean including our appartment of corse! This was my first time abroad and would happily visit Takis and Sidari again.
