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.
Simply decorated with splashes of colour, these 3-bedroom apartments are a good base for exploring the surrounding area. They come with a lounge area, balcony, kitchenette and a TV. These sleep up to 6.
We were made very welcome upon arrival by Spiros, a very nice local man. ( That's where the good bit ends)
Given the room next to the bar, the view from the kitchen window was the reception area, spoke to many people whilst cooking breakfast as they walked past to the pool.
The room was very basic, the bathroom was in dire need of both refurbishment and more to the point cleaning and the drain unblocking ( each time we showered unspeakable substances flowed up through the drain and flooded the bathroom).
We reported the drain problem but were told that this was due to people flushing loo roll down the toilet and that it would clear eventually.
The smoke alarm kept going off every time anyone showered or whenever we cooked food, the apartment owner burst into the room whilst my wife was in the shower because the smoke alarm was sounding and was extremely aggressive, accusing us of causing the problem.
We chose to visit the town the next day and bought beer from the local supermarket to drink back at the room, at 9.30pm the owner again stormed into the room and shouted at us to keep the noise down ( we were playing cards at the time and not being overly noisy as our two year old son was asleep in bed).
The next day I bought some superb fillet steak from the local butcher and was cooking it with the kitchen window open ( several other holidaymakers commented on how nice it smelled as they walked past the window within a few inches of the cooker ) Again the hotel owner got somewhat irate and insisted that we closed the window while cooking, this only served to set off the smoke alarm again which yet again got us moaned at by the owner.
By this point we were feeling that maybe the owner didn't like us for whatever reason ( possibly because we were doing our own catering to include alcohol ) which I don't consider unreasonable given that we were in a self catering apartment as part of a self catering holiday with children in tow making eating out difficult.
This pattern continued for 12 days to include the handyman removing the batteries from our smoke alarm because it was allegedly upsetting the other guests and as a result we were accused of tampering with the alarm and told to replace the batteries at our own expense otherwise we would be thrown out of the room.
This is the point where things got ugly.
On our second to last day I approached the owner to ask him what exactly his problem was with us and he said "I have no probelm with you please come and have a drink with me on the house" obviously I agreed and went along to the bar, after a couple of drinks the bar emptied leaving just myself and the owner who then himself left.
As I finished my drink I went to head back to my room only to be approached by the owner who flicked out a telescopic cosh and attacked me.
I managed to push him away and shouted my eldest son aged 13 to help me, at which point the hotel owner ran away. We immediately called the rep who after three hours or so came to see us and after having spoken to all parties insisted that we leave the apartment and paid 50 euros each to be moved to another apartment for our last remaining day. We obviously refused to pay but I was not happy to sleep in a room in an apartment block where the owner was being unnecessarily and excessively violent. He had a key to our room and had by previous experience no concerns about entering our room uninvited and was happy to use weapons. We spent a very uneasy final night of our holiday in another apatment in town but we were extremely happy to board our plane.
We would never consider staying at these apartments again and probably never CorfuMore
do,nt go last week season
Thought I would just write a few off mydissapointments I had on sunny Corfu .first off all I could not fault the accomodation for comfort and cleanliness as the cleaner was in every day apart from Sunday the only problem with the cleaner was you would hear her and her mop bucket going along the corridor at 8.30am every morning I supose she has to get her work done !!! The beds were also very comfortable .Maybe the mistake we made was going the last week off the season to sunny Corfu so this is what my dissapointments were .running out off certain drinks including beer .no Greek night as advertised only football on big screen TVs .I felt the owners were just waiting on Friday coming so,they could shut up shop and go as they made it quite clear as soon as all the guest were gone this is what was happening !, we were paying guests and this was not a cheap deal so felt we certainly missed out on hospitality side ,THe only thing I would say if you do get a cheap deal Ok but if not Do.nt go last week season.the other plus side off sunny Corfu the food was good and very cheap .would I go back No I do not think so .More
Nice, relaxing break
Booked a late summer sun break at the Sunny Apartments on a direct flight from Aberdeen, it was a decent enough flight with French Airpost. Arrival at Corfu airport was straight forward and then on to the bus. Transfer was rather lengthy due to drop offs at smaller resorts and the small but quaint Corfiot roads. Finally arrived at about 3pm and got checked in straight away without any issues. Was led to our room by the owner to the upper level and showed into the room.
Room was spacious and had a kitchenette and dining area, good sized bedroom and well finished off shower room. Balcony was also decent although the view was of some farm land. Location of the apartments is also very good, far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Sidari but close enough and about a 10 minute walk into the centre of the resort.
Staff at the apartments were very pleasant and the amenities at the apartments were good, big spacious bar area and the pool area was also decent enough, no issues obtaining beds at the pool. Food at the apartment was good, freshly cooked breakfasts with coffee and juice. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation staying here again in the future.More
A great place to stay, friendly helpful owners and staff, rooms cleaned every day and excellent home cooked food and an excellent bar. It's only a short walk to the local bars and tavernas and beach and there are plenty of shops handy.More
