Kanali Studios and Apartments  


This place has a beachside setting and a pool with a view. Plus, its restaurant does great Greek food and live shows.

The Kanali is on a low, rocky outcrop, just a few steps above a sandy beach. The pool gets uninterrupted sea views and there’s a great restaurant with regular entertainment.

The apartments are in the quieter Canal d’Amour area of Sidari, about a 15-minute walk from the main strip. Walk in the opposite direction from town and you’ll soon reach a cluster of sandy coves.

lovely holiday

we stayed at the Kanali the last week in August (family of 4, kids 12 and 10 ) we had a first floor 2 bed appt, which was lovely and spacious, lots of room in the bedrooms. the view facing the sea was fantastic, a great view to wake up to. the kids really enjoyed the pool, and went down the nearby steps to the small bit of beach and swam out to the rock to cover themselves in clay ! we ate at the aquarius restaurant several times, lunch and dinner and it was very nice and good value for money. the staff were very good, always happy to help. we did the greek night and the rock night, both are well worth going to for entertainment value. the only downside for us was the sunbeds being reserved. i do not want to have to go down to the pool at 6am to reserve a bed, and its not just a go at this hotel, i wish hotels everywhere would sort it out ! we did use the ones on the grass, which is a bit shadier. our children swim very well, so we can keep an eye on them from a distance, but if you want to be right by your kids, then its an early start to grab a bed ! we also visited a few of the nearby restaurants, which were very nice and again affordable, however, we got caught out one night, as one of the restaurants didnt take credit cards ( we use a pre-paid m/card) luckily we had enough cash between us to pay. sidari seems to be a nice area of corfu, tho we didnt go to the main strip, as a bit too busy for ourselves. i would recommend the Kanali to families and couples, it is great value for money and the staff are lovelyMore

Excellent situation and staff

We stayed first week in Sept. Had booked a one bedroom apartment but were given a 2 bedroom one on the ground floor with terrace. Apartments fairly basic but fine. Marvellous views over the coves and rocks to Albania. Most rooms have a sea view. Small beach just beside hotel where you can easily swim out to rocks in the cove. Sunbeds not a problem as there were lots on the grass, though the ones round the pool were often reserved. The restaurant was great and good value with a view over the sea and floodlit islets. Staff friendly and helpful. Rock night was excellent. Canal d'amour is a quieter part of Sidari, but has numerous reataurants close by. The main strip is a moderate walk away and appealed less to me, being very busy.More

Good but could have been better

Stayed here the first 2 weeks in August. Apartments were typically Greek and basic but with fantastic views and stayed cool as the sun was only on the bedrooms in the morning. Very clean with sheets and towels changed regularly. The food in the Aquarius restaurant was excellent and George is a star. Always happy. Our only complaint was with the sunbeds. After reading previous reviews we didn't expect getting a sunbed to be an issue but unless we got our towels down by 5.30 it was difficult to find anything left. We even heard that people were putting their towels down at 2am even though signs say they can't be reserved for more than 2 hours. Some people need to get a life! Canal d'amour is the quieter end of Sidari but the main strip is good to visit as well. Food and drink everywhere incredibly cheap and good quality. The Greek night at Kanali was very enjoyable. All in all a great place to stay. Just set your alarm to get your sunbed !!More

what a place

me my wife and little girl (9) stayed at the kanali on 18th august for two weeks, the views from our apartment was spectacular. the sun rising over albania and shining into our room what a way to wake up. from the moment you arrive and nicos meets you and takes your cases to the time you leave you are relaxed the food in the aquarius bar well cooked and quite varied and the tireless work from the staff kelly , spiros ,and george , they never stop and nothing is to much bother for them , they really looked after our little girl shes not a big eater so they made small portions of anything she wanted . on the down side there were a few issues in the apartment only minor things. like the odd loose plug socket but that can be rectified for the best views go for the two bedroom option .the location of the hotel could not be better ,will we go back YOU BET WE WILL .dont expext five star luxury but can expect five star treatment from the staff. efharisto nicos kelly spiros and george and all the other staff behind the scenes yammas .More
