“The GEM of Sidari !!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We have just had the most amazing holiday at Sunny Corfu Apartments. Sofia and Vas who run the apartments, were the most hard working, friendly, helpful and fun hosts we have ever come across on all of our holidays. The apartments were basic, but had everything you needed and they were spotless (hats off to the cleaners too) The rooms had mosi nets at the windows and doors, enabling you to leave them open without any bugs getting into your apartment and we didn't get one for the whole of the 2 weeks. Fans were available to be hired, as were safety deposit boxes. The location was perfect as it was 10 mins walked to all the busy bars and restaurants, but itself was located in a very quiet area. The food at Sunny Corfu was delicious (bravo to Mama !!!) with a WIDE variety of foods to suit all. The pool was ALWAYS spotless (as was everywhere at Sunny Corfu Apts) and there were plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas around the pool. Their weekly Greek night is a must! Such a fun evening. Sidari beach is fairly busy but clean and safe. We tried a few other restaurants in the area. Cactus Jacks and The Family being our favourites after Sunny Corfu Apts. We wouldn't recommend Three Little Pigs. Food was terrible and the staff were rude. Sofia and Vas made our holiday and we will definitely be coming back. One of the first things Vas said to me, when I asked if my son could use one of the pool toys, was "we are one big family here and you help yourself" We consider this little gem and Sofia and Vas as our new Greek family. Such a wonderful holiday.

We arrived at the Sunny Corfu apartments quite late at night and were greeted warmly by both Sofia & Vas.

We were quickly shown to our rooms and what fabulous rooms they were. We had a two bedroom apartment. You entered through the main door and straight into the kitchen which was very well equiped with a table and four chairs, small cooker with two rings, a modern fridge, toaster, kettle and all the cutlery and crockery needed to cater quite adequatley if you needed. The bathroom was a decent size with a proper shower and shower cubicle, a big sink with a cupboard and lights in it, there was a soakaway in the floor. Remember you are only get one toilet roll, you will need to bring one with you or buy more in the resort. The bedrooms were big, light and airy with a balcony for each bedroom reached by a sliding door which had a mosquito screen which meant you could sleep at night with the doors open but avoid being bitten. There were two single beds in each room which could be pushed together if needed and a bedside table by each bed and light above each bed. There were two big wardrobes and dressing table in each room, plenty of sockets and a tv in each bedroom although we did not use this. The rooms were serviced daily (except for Sunday although they did empty the bathroom bin on this day) beds made, floor swept and sometimes the washing up done. Towels were changed twice a week and the beds once a week.

Our room was situated to the left of the hotel over looking the farmers field with the goats in. The rooms were shady in the morning and sunny in the evening, with lovely views of flowers and the mountains.

While we were there we hired a safety deposit box (which was located in the reception area) for 10 euros for the week and had two fans in the room , this was more than adaquate to keep us cool even when temperatures reached 40 degrees on one of the days. It would appear some people paid for them and others didn't but it was no more than 10 euros for the week.

The food was very good you could have a full english breakfast, toast, orange juice and either tea or coffee for 4.50 euros. It may seem slightly more expensive than some advertised on the strip but they did not come with the orange juice or coffee and were extra and they actually worked out more expensive in the end. A Cheese Toastie was 2 Euros and they had an extensive menu of both English, Italian and Greek Food. Mama's Stifado comes highly recommended. A pint of Local Lager was 2.50 euros. There was a supermarket nearby for anything you needed and was run by a really friendly lady who was only to happy to get you anything you needed.

We went to the Greek Night and all agreed that this was the best Greek Night we had ever been to. The dancers got all the guests involved and Sofia and Vas also joined in. The evening finished with the traditional plate smashing and fire dance.
They also held an acoustic evening where an outside performer came in but we did not stay for this.

The pool area was lovely and clean and there were enough sunbeds and parasols for everyone staying in the hotel. Also little tables next to each sunbed. At night you could leave your inflatables round by the pool and they would be stored safely until the next day. There was a nice sized childrens pool and a shower to use before you entered the pool. There was a pool table round by the poolside.

The only negative were the lookie lookie men who came round by the pool trying to get you to buy DVD's, bracelets etc, although they did clear it with Sofia and Vas before troubling people.

The hotel was situated down a quite side street and was set back off of the road. It was about a leisurely 10 minute stroll to the main strip. Which meant you were far away enough from the strip if you wanted a quiet night or not to far away if you wanted a lively evening. We had some great nights in Babylon Bar (Ska Wars, Motown Nite and Bon Jovi), Madisons (good for a dance) and Bed Bar (Foam Party). We ate in some lovely restaurants and are favourite being Cactus Jacks just around the corner from the Three Little Pigs Restaurant, the portions were so huge we never managed a desert and we returned there for our final meal of our holidays. We also had lovely meals in Meditterano Restaurant and Pizza Romania (the Garlic Bread was huge and out of this world). On average two large beers, 6 soft drinks, a starters and main course cost us approx 60 euros (this was for a family of four), which we thought was very reasonable.

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for family, friends, couples or people travelling on their own (due to the wonderful hospitality shown to us by Sofia and Vas they made time for all their guests and Sofia was wonderful with all the young children). When we left Vas came out and saw everyone off with a hug or handshake and helped with the luggage.

I would love to go back tomorrow if I could.

First time at Sunny Corfu & what an absolute pleasure, the whole place is spotlessly clean, apartments are spacious & well equipped, not that you should have much use for the kitchen when food & snacks from the restaurant are amazing & very well priced, the Greek breakfast is lovely. A few but friendly & helpful staff, overseen by two amazing hosts, Sofia & Vas. They can't do enough for you & always have a smile, we had many laughs, in many ways they made our holiday. We found Sidari a little run down & tired but if your staying at Sunny Corfu you needn't venture too far, leaving the strip & bars to the younger ones!! Their Greek night should not be missed either.

Room Tip: Room 110 on the ground floor, a 2 bedroom apartment furthest away from the bar (not that it's ev...

Just returned from my 9th stay at the Sunny Corfu Appts in Sidari! I've always loved this place hence why I return every year! Sophia and Vas have been absolutely brilliant as per usual and I would highly recommend this as a holiday destination for anyone. Sidari has something for everyone and the Appts are in a brilliant location. When I first went with my 2 children, they were 4 and 7 and they still love going just as much even now they are much older. The Appts are situated in a lovely quiet part of Sidari but are within 5 mins walking distance of everything you need. There is round the clock service form the staff there and nothing is too much trouble (Sophia and Vas very obviously love what they do). Another reason I love it so much is that we always bump into someone we have met there before, which to me says a lot! Splendid place and I wish them the very best of luck for the rest of the season and ill be booking for next year very soon!

Going back to sunny apartments in five days, for 3rd year running. Usually like to try different countries but Sofia and Vas made us feel so welcome that we just had to go back. Staying at the Sunny is like being with family only you don't tire of them.
The food is excellent, all cooked by Sofia's wonderful mama. The apartments although basic are spotless, as is the pool area. The location is perfect, being very quiet, but within a 10 minute walk to all the bars restaurants and beach.
Can't wait to go back. See you all soon. Xxxxxxxx

Room Tip: All rooms are good. Hire a fan, as there is no a/c.

Where to begin ..... This holiday was our best yet and I would say it is far better than any brochure can portray. Sofia and Vas are fabulous hosts to all their guests, nothing is to much trouble, the pool, bar,rooms,restaurant are spotless ..... They work very hard but are forever smiling and really make you feel at home. The food ...... Wonderful ..... An extensive menu to choose from and they do go the extra mile in cooking something to your preferred taste. We always opt for self catering although this holiday was like staying with family and it is a pleasure to dine here, you don't need to look for restaurants when staying at Sunny Appartments. Their Greek night is such a good night ..... Not to be missed. I am very wary when reading reviews but I booked this holiday online ..... Purely on the good reviews .... How right they were !! You can't go wrong in booking a holiday here, we certainly will be returning .... Sofia, Vas and Mamma's cooking ..... The best Cocktail for any family holiday....... Yamos xx
