These family-run apartments are highly rated for their top location, big pool and delicious home-cooking.
This family-run place may have an idyllic rural setting – there’s a farm right next door – but it’s only a 10-minute walk from the centre of Sidari, with its tavernas, shops and sandy beach.
There’s a good-sized pool with a bar, and a restaurant where the ‘mama’ of the family rustles up authentic Greek cuisine, as well as a few international favourites. The regular Greek dancing nights always go down a treat, too.
After reading some very good reviews on these apartments, I must say I was pretty disappointed at the general state and cleanliness. It wasn't all bad,, so I will endeavour to give some plus points before venturing on the bad. Firstly the staff were very nice and helpful, the bar area, I thought was very good and extremely clean, the food was reasonable and not too expensive, and the pool area was quite good too. The negative points were, the apartments although very spacious were not that clean, especially what was supposed to be the cooker, the bathroom didn't fair much better either, the towels were thin and not changed every day. as I mentioned the apartment was large, for a two bedroomed accommodation , but what I cannot understand is the lack of cooking utensils, we had one pan and that was an 8 litre saucepan which to me , if I was a family of four who wanted to self cater, then that would be totally inadequate. The beds have got to have been the most uncomfortable thing I have ever slept on, I do realise in Greece the beds are generally uncomfortable , but these were an exception. I do agree with a previous reviewer who said Thomson should maybe re rate this accommodation as normally when I go to Greece which is quite often the 3 to 4 T rating is far better than this. I would also like to add that there's no air con, just fans to hire. The only other thing I thought was disappointing was being charged for Wi-Fi especially these days when everyone is giving it for free. I do agree with a fellow reviewer that the beach in Sidari is far from cleanMore

Good Value Apartment
Family run friendly apart/hotel, good pool and bar area. Would return some day. My only complaint has nothing to do with the hotel but, just to make fellow travelers to Sidari that he beach is far from clean.More

My husband and I stayed in these apartments in September. We have made numerous visits to this property since 2005. We didn't have a problem with George and his family at all. What troubled us most was the sad state that the apartments are now in. High time that the owners did something about it.
We even noticed that the umbrellas by the pool are in tatters. I think its about time Thomson visited these apartments as we believe they are very overpriced. Thomson should also rethink this 15kg baggage allowance if you wish to self cater you have to bring items with you due to the few utensils supplied. A microwave would be heaven!More

stayed at the Sunny Apartments for a week 15/9/14, perfect for us, at the edge of the main strip we enjoyed the walk in and out at night. we found the staff pleasant and accomodating . we had a 2 bedroomed appartment, very clean and spacious, especially as there was only the 2 of us, great big balcony with only the goats overlooking us !!
we are thinking of going back next year to mark our silver wedding and will be staying here definatley!More

This was our 4th consecutive visit to the Sunny Apartments and 5th time in total. The first 2 visits were hosted by Spiros who I have to say we thought couldn't be beaten and the most recent 2 visits by Sophia & Vas who raised the bar even further. This was therefore always going to be a hard challenge for George and Sam and perhaps why they didn't even bother trying! In the past we were always met with smiling faces and immediately made to feel at home. When George met us he told us our room wasn't ready, which was fine we were on an early flight, but then went on to moan about Thomsons and why they bring people so early. In the past we would probably (not expected) have been offered a drink but as we weren't & the welcome was so cold we ventured off to the strip to buy essentials and here began a long term relationship with the Greek Village Restaurant (reviewed). On return to Sunny we went to our room to be met with a sign on the door saying not to use the bathroom as it had been repaired following a leak. What greeted us was 1 inch wide grouting in a non matching grey on the floor and up the walls - it was awful but we knew we weren't spending 2 weeks in the bathroom so just put up with it. Interesting to know that Vas & Sophia had told the owners that 204 leeked into 104 the previous year AND offered to fix it but were told not to. Throughout our stay I was only ever called "Sir" by George, he never bothered to learn my name. There was an attempt in the first week to put on a BBQ & Greek night, the first had one table attend the latter got cancelled though our neighbour who had paid to attend was not told it was cancelled until they got down to the bar that evening. I wont go on because most returning Reviewers have captured the experience. I delayed reviewing because my daughter was due to go on her first holiday alone to the Sunny and I didn't want to influence her experience - she also commented on the lack of engagement. Finally, many have commented on the poor standard of furnishing and I agree; it dates back to our very first visit and frankly the owners have lasted on a tide of excellent reviews due to the hosts, Spiros & then Sophia and Vas. Whilst the setting is beautiful and the pool spotless, the heart and sole of the place have gone but don't despair, that heart and sole are 100 yards down the road in the Christakis (reviewed) where you will find Sophia with her Uncle Nikos (who remembered my name after our first meeting & used it for the rest of the 2 weeks despite us not staying at the Christakis) and in the evenings, after his work, Vas joined in the fun and family atmosphere.More
