Beautiful location sidari is a place i would love to go back to
socrates is in need of a update and some softer beds, the first place we were given bins had not been emptied and the place was crawling with ants, we did get moved to a better room but after arriving late the last thing you need to be seeing is stinky kitchen bin!!
the food here is very basic and often quite expensive at ""the rock"" speaking to many people it used to be very good here when his parents ran it and has gone down hill in the last 9 years, people often complained of undercooked food here! its ok if you want to eat snacks like chip butties and are willing to pay over the top for the privilege of eating it pool side.
the staff george and maria are wonderful but both are new and apparently they staff turn over here is quite high with new staff every year
on the day of our departure Socrates exploded and shouted at me and my child from looking at his menu and not ordering, in short he was very aggressive and it upset me and my child considerably if it hadn't have been our last day we would of moved to another place.
i heard him have a "word" with other holidaymakers after they had hired a car and had been out and about not spending money at socrates!
you can get wonderful meals on the strip a really great place to go is mediterraneo for evening meals and smugglers inn do a fantastic breakfast and totally yummy milkshake the staff at both places are very welcoming and all meals we had there was quality, tasty and reasonably priced.
you will find people who go to sidari do so year after year and its very easy to see why its a beautiful place i will defo go back there again but i will never ever step foot in socrates again not even for a free holiday!!
i don't understand why people go back there and yet moan about him and how he has let standards slip
im quite aware greece is struggling at the moment but i have never come across a greek person like him, he is a very desperate man and it shows, he runs a self catering holiday yet gets aggravated when people choose to see more of the island and wine and dine else where than his! when working in hospitality you can not behave this way.
after my husband spoke with him he did promise to apologize but being the spineless man he is he didn't bother
the olive groove is a really nice place and i would think of staying here next time it is owned by a wonderfully welcoming family and shows what the greek people are really like
