Myself, my mum and three sisters returned today from a really lovely week in the Socrates apartments. We didn't pay for 4 star accommodation, so we didn't expect it and we know Greece doesn't have the standards of many other holiday destinations but we were very happy with what we got. The apartments are tired but clean and adequate for... More

we usually do Spanish Hotels on a half board basis and came upon this 'bargain' on Corfu, it had good reviews, the main concerne was hard beds, this suited us so we booked, in reality room 206 had issues, the biggest being a shower curtain that was over a foot too short leaving a drenched bathroom floor no matter how...

We also stayed in room 103 and I agree that it needs some attention. There is mould in the bathroom, the shower curtain was grubby and didn't fit the cubicle and the shower tray filled with water due to hairs blocking the plug hole. We were put there because I wanted air con and the main hotel system had been... More

We choose Socrates because of the ideal location, it's close to the beach and the lovely canal d'amor. We've visited Sidari 5 times before but Socrates tops them all the apartments are spotless and cleaned daily. We had room 107 which was decorated for us the night b4 we got married. We stayed for 2 weeks. Socrates himself is very... More

We have stayed at Socrates at least 6 times. Yes the rooms are basic but are cleaned everyday. Having stayed else where in Sidari the stand here is as good as anywhere else. But holidays are not only about the Apartments its the whole experience and at Socrates you get a great holiday. Staff are very friendly & helpful. Socrates... More

Disappointed when first saw the hotel. However, the views are incredible. Slightly out of Sidari itself which was perfect for us. 5 minutes to the main strip that was a bit more chaotic than expected. Hence why we were glad we were away from it but within walking distance if we fancied a drink in the evening. Have to walk... More

Stayed at Socrates for a week on the 25h July with my husband, Apartment was basic but clean and as we don't spend a lot of time in the apartment is was fine for us, the bathroom needs updating but it did not spoil anything, the only complaint was the hot water situation being that there was none, it did...
