Just got back from a week's holiday at Christakis with my sister and what an amazing holiday! Nicos is very very helpful and a lovely man - very good with children! I would say it is a hotel for pretty much everyone. The apartment was very spacious, clean and bed's were comfortable. Shower was fine too. Breakfast was very basic but you can't expect much for the price we paid. Glass of orange juice, 2 pieces of toast with jam and butter. If you want more, just pay 2.50 euros for a full english - very good value for money. Waitress speaks very little english. We didn't have lunch or dinner there as so much to choose from in main strip. Drinks are very good price though - just 0.80 cents for water and 1.20 euros for bottle of soft drinks. The swimming pool was very nice too - good size - shallow and deep end and childen's part too. Can use the computer in the bar if you spend 1.50 on bar stuff. Always sunbeds available so no getting up early to get them!
Location is brilliant. Near to the main strip but not too near for noise at night. Sidari is an excellent resort for families, couples, friends etc. 5 mins from strip. Lots of restaurants but we liked to sit on the ones to the left where you can watch the sunset on the beach. Few recommendations - Calypso, BED, Sunset, Madisons, Magic Wok. Food are reasonable prices. Average of 8.50 euros for food. We spent about 20 euros on our meal a night for both of us. Food is quite similar in all restaurants - greek platters, pastas, pizza etc. Fab food. Bars are great too. Recommend Palazzo bar, Madisons and Cargo for nights. Cocktails were great in Palazzo - spent most night's there. There is free wifi everywhere which is very helpful!!
We went to a tribute every night! They were very very good and a lot of talent. We saw Amy Winehouse - she was very nice and Europe's number one Winehouse tribute! - Laura Jane Butler! We also saw Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilara, Katy Perry, Jessie J and Bob Marley. Funny nights! Also karaoke in bars and music quizzes.
Beach is very nice and has plenty of bars and restaurants on the beach for lunch and drinks. Sea is good and all sandy beach. Waves are calm and shallow water for a while back. Lots of watersports available. Canal D'amour is also lovely - picturesque. Sunbeds are 4 euros each for the day. - we spent a day there and it was lovely.
We went on the East Coast Boat trip and it was such a great trip! Boat was fun and saw lots around the island. We paid 22 euros each which didn't include food but go to Jeni's - lovely woman who can provide baguettes for the trip at cheap prices.
Definitely stay here. Great location. Great hotel. Great people and a great time!
