My husband and I stayed in these apartments in Aug 2011. Our apartment was in the block where the family lived. If I returned to Olgas I would request a different apartment as the others appeared to be more modern. The complex was clean - no cockroaches. The staff were friendly except for one man who worked in the bar I'm not sure who he was but I think he was Mike's brother - we always got the impression he did not want to be there. As regards food we only ate there once and ordered a pizza and fish neither of us were impressed. There wasn't a barbeque night or Greek night but fortunately there are some fantastic cafes and restaurants in Sidari to enjoy. The location is excellent right beside the best beach in Sidari.
Re Trips: We never saw a holiday rep during our weeks stay and we were never given details of a welcome meeting. We booked our trips with Vlaseros Travel which is located on the walk towards the strip just over the bridge on the right hand side of the road. They were very informative and explained a break down of costs so there were no hidden surprises.
We went on a day trip to ALBANIA - we chose the option to have the meal included which we were delighted with - beautiful setting, great service and fab food. Make sure that the Blue Eye Spring is included in the trip as it is just like Avatar, stunning. Unfortunately most shops were closed but if you wish to go shopping we would recommend Corfu Town.
We did CORFU TOWN BY BOAT BY NIGHT - When you arrive in Corfu Town go left into the Old Town. Go to the main square to McDonalds - outside McDonalds there is a mini tour train 6 euro per person - it brings you all around the Old Town with the speakers giving you a guided tour. When you arrive back at the square to McDonalds we recommend you cross the square to the Venetian Fort (free entrance) well worth a visit.
Sidari was fantastic - the strip at night caters for all ages and very family orientated however from approx midnight the twenty somethings go to the strip for their fun nights. BEST RESTAURANT recommended by locals was Pizza Romana down the lane beside Pancho Villas on the strip. Believe me its not just fantastic pizzas but a great choice of meals on the menu, fantastic service, beautiful setting amazing value and very filling.
WORST RESTUARANT was the chinese restaurant on the right hand side of the road as you approach the strip it looks fab from the street but I have had tastier boil-in-the-bag and it was expensive.
MOSQUITOES - they are defo a problem in Sidari. Even my husband got bitten which has never happened before. Everyone was bitten some appeared to be covered in bites. It is a problem which is unfortunate because Sidari is a fantastic place for a holiday especially as the All Inclusive doesnt seem to have taken hold there and there is a lovely buzz of families getting dressed up and heading out in the evening.
All in all we had a fantastic holiday.
