Young couple looking for a hotel!!!!


After much deliberation, me and my boyfriend have decided to holiday to Sidari this year in July. I will be 20 and my boyfriend is 24, therefore we decided that Sidari should hopefully be lively enough for us at night time without the craziness of Malia or Laganas!

I have looked at about a million different hotels and apartments and bad pictures teamed with bad reviews are making it really hard for me to just decide on one place! If I list what we are looking for in a resort then I would be eternally grateful if someone would point me in the direction of a hotel so that I can stop moaning to my boyfriend!

-Close enough to the main strip but far away enough to get a good nights sleep if we choose not to go out (10 minute walk at the most)

-Close to the beach

-Self Catering

-A hotel with a variety of ages and other English people

-A nice pool and sunbathing area

-A nice enough room

Some of the apartments that I have seen are Tereza and Palmar Apartments, but have heard some negative things about the Tereza apartments and have no idea where either of them are!

Thank you in advance for any replies!

Thank you all for your advice, we will definitely take a card with extra money on just in case! And thank you for your advice about booking trips, we'll be sure to go with Agents as opposed to reps!

I do have one more question (sorry to bother you all!) I'm used to holidaying in commercial destinations in Spain such as Ibiza and Turkey and everyone wears pretty much anything and no one bats an eyelid... Therefore I am accustomed to wearing little shorts etc. Is it deemed disrespectful in Sidari to have any areas of the body uncovered or is it an area densely populated with traditional values? I've never been to Greece and I really don't want to offend anyone by bearing anything that they find disrespectful or pack a case of big cover uppy clothes and everyone is walking around in hotpants etc.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated before I start to buy my holiday clothes! Again, I'm sorry for bothering people about clothes of all things!

Kind Regards,

Hi Natalie, wear what you like, Sidari is very commercialised and everyone wears anything, from bikinis to speedo's - yes speedo's lol, there is nothing that will disrespect anyone there, enjoy and have a great time, bring on August!

Hi Natalie

If you go on a trip that includes churches or a Monastery then it is advisable to wear respectful clothing e.g. trousers. Apart from that I agree with Teena. Although if you are planning to visit local villages, common sense prevails.

anything goes natalie so dont worry wear what the heck you like - no one will bat an eyelid I can assure you.

Like sidarigirl states above only if you intend to visit churches or monasteries then you should be appropriately dressed, ie covered up in the correct places!!!

People in resort tend to wear what they like when they like and believe me anything goes - I am still traumatised by a gentleman of a more mature age donning his lime green thong - bit like mel harvey from benidorm springs to mind!!!!!! so dont worry x

What a considerate question Natalie....

Agree with Sidarigirl about visitng churches or a monastery and local villages etc. being appropriately dressed....I think that as the above have all said, it is down to personal taste to wear what you want.

I, personally, always pack a couple of dresses for use in the evenings or other such occasions.
