Have just got back from a wonderful 7 day holiday to Sidari with a friend (both females age 20) where we stayed in the Takis 2 apartments. There was such a mix of people staying from us, to families,30year olda friends and older couples and everyone was made to feel as welcome as each other.
We thought it was fantastic. Admittedly when we arrived it was very early in the morning and the initial walk down the gravel track was a little daunting, but dont let that put you off!!
The room we stayed in was small and basic - but perfectly good enough for what we needed and paid for. We had a look round another room, for 6 and it was lovely and spacious. Everybody at the hotel was welcoming and friendly, especially the barman, Dimitri. He was very good at ensuring the cleanliness and general tidyness of the pool and bar area which always looked lovely. Food is available all day from greek dishes to english and sunbeds are always free.
At out welcome meeting he gave us all a free alcoholic drink to welcome us and emcourage us to speak Greek. Yammas!!
The location of the apartments were great. Within walking distance of the beach, lovely restaurants, bars at night, excursion pick up points, bus stops etc but also just that little bit out of town so you werent disturbed at night.
The night life is great but not 'in your face' The bars offer free drinks and lovely food and many have great tribute acts on each night - we saw Rod Stewart, Meatloaf, Freddie Mercury and the best Michael Jackson ever! Everyone in Sidari is so friendly and want to make your stay enjoyable!
We booked 5 excursions, each with the same company - Vlasseros Travel - the owner, Philip is very helpful and genuinely want you to make the most of your holiday. We went on the Bella Vista trip, Aqualand, Kassiopi, Korfu Town and and the traditional Greek night and we would reccomend each! We weren't disappointed once.
There are so many things to see and do in Sidari and we and the people we met also staying at Takis didnt experince any of the problems highlighted by other guests...
We've had a lovely time in 27 to 35 degree heat and cant wait to go back for 2 weeks rather than 1!!!
The only downside we would have is that you need to hand in your room key at 12 midday on your day of departure, so if you have a late flight like we did, we were without the showering facility that was needed on such a hot day before travelling. so long as it doesnt clash with ne arrivals you can pay 20euros and keep your room until 7pm.
(we used the shower in the room of friend we made during our stay)
