Sunny Corfu Apartments  

Loading

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.

What a difference a year makes

Myself and my daughter have just come back from a fortnights holiday at the Sunny and i cannot believe the change from last year, On arrival there was no welcome from the staff but i will admit George did take our cases up the stairs, The cleaners are not doing there job right and the place has really gone downhill, the bathroom is a health hazard we had filth coming up from the drain and we had to get George to sort it out and to be fair to him he got it sorted straight away but the mesh mat that you step on when you get out of the shower still held all the black gunge and it took my daughter 20 minutes to get it clean,They need to get the so called owners to update the Sunny otherwise i can imagine it will close in a year or two and what a sad day that would be because its in a prime spot and with the right cleaners who know how to clean, the bar staff who have fun and get you to join in and a cook who has a smile now and again instead of sitting on the seat with a fag in her hand and looks you up and down when you walk past, maybe last year we were spoilt because when we arrived we had a warm welcome and were made to feel like one of the family and it felt like party night EVERY night and i can only thank Sophia, Vass, Momma the best cook in Corfu and the cleaners who were proper cleaners, I am sorry i have had to put this review on here but as you see i am not the only one who cannot believe what a change in the place.More

Sidari very nice, Sunny Corfu not great

On arrival at the sunny we were greeted by George who took our bags but totally ignored us as a family. Once checked in by a very grumpy George we went to our room, this was not ready so we left our bags and went to the bar. The swimming pool & bar area was spacious and clean. Once in our room my daughter pulled back the sheets to find lots of long black hairs in her bed, yuk! My husband went out to George to explain and he said he would sort it whilst we went out for the evening. On our return the bed had not been changed..... We went to find George and ask why and he charged into our room telling us that the hairs were from my daughter brush that was on the side....... Once we explained that our daughters hair is blonde (also why would we empty the bush in the bed?!?!?) he stormed out of the room.... We then had an older lady Come into the room with new sheets over her arm shouting aggressively at us in Greek! She did not want to change the bed but as we could not understand her my husband just took the sheets off in front of her and watched her change them to the new sheets she had.... On her way out she clearly stated in English 'no more change for you in your stay!' As we were staying 2 weeks this we not acceptable.... We spoke with the cleaner after one week and she kindly changed them. Sidari is very nice the beach was ok about 10 minutes walk from the apartment. The shopping and nightlight also 10 mins walk away which was nice so you could take it or leave it. Plenty of restaurants to eat at over 2 weeks - 'The Family' is definately worth a visit. We also went horse riding along the beach for €10 this was lovely - looking out to sea with the breeze in your hair. We went on a boat trip 'The lazy day cruise' enjoyed the day food was provided and jumping off the boat to cool down was amazing. A coach trip to Corfu town was also worth a visit Back at the Sunny Corfu we were self catering we thought it was ok to eat our food around the pool but there are signs saying you can only eat food bought at the bar - this is because the pool is open to passers by and is free to them if they use the bar, whilst this seems ok I think a little unfair to the people staying as we have food in our rooms to eat which we have bought elsewhere for half the price. Our room was kept clean by the cleaner but the bathroom was awful after having a shower we had to paddle to the toilet as the shower leaked and the drains seemed blocked.... The cleaner said that the bathrooms were going to be changed in October ready for next year. On the whole we had a great holiday in Sidari and would probably would return but to the sunny??? Not whilst Goerge was running it......we didn't see him smile in 2 weeks and most of the time totally ignored us as we passed.... It doesn't cost anything to be polite?More

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The Good George, Sam & Mia all provided great service and were good hosts. Pool area was good although on some days getting a sunbed was a challenge! Swimming pool was nice but tended to go a little cloudy at the deep end later in the day on a daily basis. Food and drink in the hotel bar generally good and priced ok. Big breakfast excellent value for money. The Bad Hotel rooms dated and tired. Kitchen utensils non existant in our appartment. Fridge very old and in need of replacing. The Ugly Although cleaned daily the rooms were not clean. On arrival we had long black hair on our dressing table which was brushed onto the floor by myself expecting it to be swept up the next morning. WRONG!! The long black hairs just got moved arround the bedroom floor for 2 weeks (Unless they were changed on a daily basis) Other bits of debris remained also. NOT GOOD.The balcony was not cleaned in 2 weeks of us being there. The bathroom was a disgrace. Black grout, mouldy grout and a rusty bin for the loo paper! After my first shower which was nice and hot and refreshing i realised that the plastic floor mat outside the shower was filthy. This mat was covering a floor drain which consisted of a hole. After placing a towel over this, when removed, it carried a dirty pattern transfered from this mat. After rinsing the plastic mat, and after showering again it was exactly the same, Filthy. The sink and toliet were not touched for 5 days, not even wiped. Unfortunately, the clenliness of the rooms let this place down. Fortunately we only slept and showered in the room so we certainly didn't let this spoil our hols. Summary. Good location, good hosts amd good pool. But it could all be so much better with a little attention to detail!!More

Lacks in cleanliness and care from staff

We returned home yesterday as a family of 4 from a week long stay at sunny corfu apartments. This holiday was from the start a little irritating. We arrived at 4.30pm local time at the apartments to the cleaner still in our room and told to go and wait in the bar. We then had to pay 2 euros per day for a safe box which could not even fit an iPad in. Then I had to get 2 fans as no a/c which again 2 euros per fan per day plus no welcome pack so the start of the holiday was not a great one. When we did get into our room we quickly unpacked and went to see by daylight where shops and bars were, (5 mins walk to the strip and seconds to local shops). On the first night we did not sleep well at all as the beds are as my kids described "like sleeping on tomb stones" hence solid and with a tiny pillow. So the next day was a chill by the pool which we did manage to get a sun lounger (not the case for all week) and a rep (Adam) coming to find us to discuss welcome meeting so it was a good job we stayed at the pool side. I have to admit the rep was very good. After two days of asking for more pillows I was given a blanket to place under my current pillow (ok it worked but not happy). Cleaner did come into the room every day except Sunday but the kitchen bin was never wiped down and the fridge had mould in which was never wiped. The kitchen had a damp smell as if the had been a leak and this smell lingered on food we placed in the cupboards. The bathroom (disgusting) towels changed on day 4 stinking after use from 4 people twice a day for 4 days. Then when you have a shower the water comes back up into the bathroom plus loads of other waste via a drain in the floor which you have to stand on to get out of the shower. Plus the fan in our apartment was leaking and mould around it. On reporting to George (manager) I was told " we know about this problem in that room" at this I was furious and made a formal complaint to my rep. Our views from our room where awful the sight of a half built building in the front and to the side a car park and bin plus the cleaners mops and a trolley. So not nice views at all. All of these problems are easily solved but the apartments are managed and with no sign of the owner things are certainly not kept at 3* this hotel is more like 1-2* and I would not recommend it or revisit here.More

Fantastic stay at Sunny Apartments

Many thanks for George, Sam and Mia for being such excellent hosts and ensuring that we had such a great holiday. The rooms were kept immaculately clean, the pool was large and never over crowded. But what made the holiday so great were our hosts - George, Sam and Mia are very welcoming and put on some great events - the Greek night is a must - without a doubt the best night of the holiday - we all laughed until we were nearly crying!. Their Saturday BBQ was delicious, and you could refill your plate as often as you wanted. We met some great people, and would definitely recommend anyone to go there, and we will go there again next time we holiday in Corfu. It is near enough to the main Strip to make it an easy 5-10 minute walk, but far enough away that you are not disturbed by the noise. Lots of good restaurants to choose from, no need to eat in the same place twice during the 2 weeks (although we did choose to return to La Strata which was really great). Many thanks to George, Sam and Mia againMore
