“Alexis apts sidari AVOID AVOID AVOID AT ALL COSTS EVEN IF ITS FREE.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

I have stayed in different parts of Greece at least 40 times from very basic apartments to villas and i know they are all quite basic. I have never found any where as filthy dirty and disgusting as Alexis apt in sidari. I stayed for a week in that time our bin was emptied once and that was because we complained. The apt was never cleaned once in that week and the filth was terrible. The fridge was broken the door hanging off and the back of it was red hot. The bathroom was filthy the only good thing was we had hot water. The kettle was broken. I don't really ask a lot from an apartment in Greece but the basics are a must the toilet bin to be emptied daily and a general sweeping and mopping of the floor would be good. Supposed to be a quiet location but the bar played loud music til 3am ever night. This is the first time I have ever come across a filthy place in Greece. Advise to avoid at all costs this is worse than the basic its disgusting.

Stayed at alexis apartments end of June/July 2012 staff were very friendly,pool was very good, bar was excellent. Watch out for shot time georgies free bar, a few times a night. Apartment was excellent clean, clean towels every day, bedding changed regularly, shower alright for greece, We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment plenty of room 2 adults 2 teenagers.Great location, walk across car park on to strip plenty of bars, visit one for the road not to be missed. Sidari is a great place to visit great beaches, canel de amour excellent, would go back and would recommend alexis apartments. Excellent holiday.

The best thing about this hotel is the location - near shops restaurants and the beach, but yet away from the noise. Accommodation is basic. Has a free TV but hardly any english speaking programmes. Air conditioning was €60 extra for a week. Had an electric kettle and toaster. Place was reasonably clean but the beds were hard and some linen ws stained. The shower area was very small and the shower hoze could not be hung from overhead making it very difficult to was hair. The pool was clean but the water was cold. sun-beds were free. Staff were friendly. the general area was unkept as is the town in general. Sidari is a great place for eating out. Food and drink was very reasonably priced. The local beef and lamb dishes are very tasty. We had heard about the mosqueto problem. we took Vitamin B1 for two weeks before we went and took Vit B1 and Garlic tablets while there. Also got plug-in for the apartment and sprayed ourselves going out at night - did not get even one bite when others got several bites.

Room Tip: Choose up-stairs as down-stairs can get flooded in thunder-storm

just got back from week stay at these so called studios. i have never seen anything as discusting in my whole life.the first day we got there we had to be moved because when we had a shower the water came up through the grate. the room they moved us to was no better,the bathroom was discusting it had broken tiles on the wall where ants was comming in, the bed sheets was never changed, we didnt have clean towels untill i asked them to change them,which took them half hour.we arrived on wednesday 5th sept and the toilet bin wasnt emptied untill the sunday. the outside table and chairs had never been cleaned in years by the look of them.iv been self catering in many greek islands and never seen anything as dirty. this holiday made me ill, i was constantly a nervous wreck wen i needed the toilet. im so glad that this wasnt the first greek island i went to because this would have put me off greece for life. as for the cooking facilities i wouldnt make a meal in this place for a pig.the only rating i can give it is the location which was great.

First of all, we stayed in the Alexis in Sidari and not in Benitses, there seems to be some confusion as to which hotel we're leaving a review for.
It was ok ... the location was perfect, nice and quiet but only a step away from the main drag.
We paid an extra £200 for a 2 bedroomed apartment, but were disappointed by the lack of cleanliness, we know it's Greece and didn't expect too much, but the constant puddle on our bathroom floor which came from the sewer pipe from the apartment upstairs was a bit much. We had to wear shoes in the bathroom all the time, step out of them to shower and back in, out!
The noise of the macerator from the toilets was really loud, it must have been right outside our apartment, and sounded like someone snoring really loudly, 24/7. We did complain a couple of times but they were a bit off with us, more or less said to find another hotel then. Think they did fiddle with it 'cos it did get a wee bit quieter.
We didn't use the pool as we don't swim and would rather sunbathe on the beach anyway. Most sunbeds are free on the beach as long as you patronise their bar. The pool area looked fine though, as did the bar, but again, there were so many bars etc in the town, we didn't like to just stay in the hotel.
Bed bugs!!!! No, it's the mozzies and other flying and creeping things that bite your legs and ankles, lol, and they do come out after a few hours, so it might appear that you've been bitten in the night! I took all the necessaries but forgot one night and was absolutely bitten to death. I always have a really bad allergic reaction as well, could hardly walk when I first got out of bed in the mornings, but have no-one to blame but myself ... certainly not the bed bugs!
Anyway, we had a good holiday, all in all, we do love Sidari and will definitely be going back there. To Alexis? ... maybe not. Happy Holidays!

Spent 2 weeks here june/july 2012. Frankly I do not understand many of the negative posts regarding cleanliness etc.
The maid came daily inc sundays towels bedding changed evry 2-3 days. The people complaining about being bitten by bed bugs have obviosly been bitten by mozzis which are a problem if you don't take the obvious precautions. Me and the mrs used extra strong jungle formula plus used plug in and citronella candles, I wasn't bitten once in 2 weeks, the mrs had one bite and that was only because she forgot the repelent on one evening.
The rooms are typical greek self catering studios and are as good as any we've stayed in greece for this kind of money. Admittedly the beds are rock hard and the bathroon very small .Pool is great definately the alexis' best feature
Staff friendly, the pool bar is more expensive than most but you are literally minutes from the main strip , also easy stroll to the canal d'amour 10 mins max.
Mozzis more of a problem in the canal area because of close proximity to a rather dirty stagnent canal
We prefered the quieter area of sidari along the beach rd east of the main strip. The canal d'armour is to the westside of town, with the strip in the middle. Sidari is great dozens of bars and tavernas, fab beach. I really enjoyed it would def go back, wouldn't hesitate to book at the Alexis either. The Alexis real strong point is its location, close to everything but still nice and quiet

Just got back from alexis apartments only had a week but it was great hol , area was great lots of bars and places to eat with a view to kill for . The apartment was very basic ( that's Greece for you ) no clean towels all week or clean sheets, the kitchen again was very basic ( but you don't on away to cook everyday ) the pool was brill and very inviting , we didn't have much to do with the pool bar except for one evening when there was light entertainment on (which was ab fab by the way ) even so we were made very welcome by all the staff , but no one was ever anyone
On reception . My husband got eaten alive by mosquito bites or bed bugs no sure which !!! Also on day of departure there was no where to freshen up before leaving for the airport . But all in all it was a great holiday ,!!!!!!!!
