“"Would return in a heart beat"”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Me and a group of six girls from Ireland stayed at the Sirocco Apartments for two weeks.It is a 10 minute walk to the famous "Star Beach". It is run by the loveliest caring family. Costas the owner and our "Dad" for the two weeks was there 24/7 making sure our stay was the best it could be. Our apartments were spotless. Basic layout (That is what you must expect for a budget accommodation) The pool was also kept really well. You can get food by the (small,bar pool) Toasties,Chips,Pizza.And Lots of Drinks (get mike the bar man to make you a cocktail......yum) Having the bar is really handy when you are hungover and just want to laze by the pool all day. It also is a 10 min taxi ride to the strip at night. We ended up paying only 2euro a night each for a taxi. The apartments are a few feet from the pool which was so handy. The accommodation is also in a safe, quiet area so if you want to escape the noise from hersonissos strip its perfect while still being close. There is a small shop 3 mins walk from sirocco and a large supermarket 7 mins walk. With a few nice restaurants beside it which have the traditional plate smashing nights, (Yamas is a good one,or Nikos family restaurant, Or Red and White ) I would defiantly recommend renting a quad bike (There are loads of rental shops by Sirocco) and visting , Koutouloufari,piskopiano and Malia they are very close and easy to find.

Not too sure what the other reviews are about, at the end of the day this is a budget hotel and you shouldn't be expecting a 5* hotel. But in all honesty I don't think I would've stayed anywhere else. Yes, the toilets are quite hard to flush but like the rest of Greece is, Costas is such a lovely man and so welcoming I would definitely recommend to stay here especially due to it's close proximity to the world famous star beach and hersonissos nightlife.

The sirocco is in a great location, just a short walk from the main town and beaches but just enough out of the way for the peace and quite should you require, to either relax by the well maintained pool or have a little siesta. The owners were lovely and made me feel completely welcomed, nothing was too much trouble. I would definately return.

First of all the resort is predominantly populated by young Dutch party goers and our week at sirocco had a good cross section of this population, though drunk most of the time they were great fun if not noisy but we learnt after the 2012 season the owner Costas was switching to families only. Talking of Costas, he met me and my mate at his bar and could t have been more welcoming, in fact he gave us a beer on the house, and not the only one during our stay. His family continued all week to make us feel so welcome and constantly joined us to chat and find out what we'd done each day, we became good friends with them all by the end of the week and they saw us off at the end as if we were part of the family. The rooms: clean? Yes. Hot water.? Random, as most of Greek budget stays. Sheet changes? No. Towels? One change. Rooms cleaned? Once in the week but no problem. Pool? Adequate and spotless. Bar? Excellent. The family? Awesome. The resort? Young and non threatening unlike Malia next door. Would we return? If only to meet up with Costas and family!!!

Nice, clean apartments in a great central location. Lots of nice beaches nearby and a short distance from the main town centres and fishing harbours.

The owner of these apartments is a very rude, short tempered man by the name of Costas. Fortunately, we didn't have much business with him after check-in, as we we're out most of the day.

Check-out was supposed to be at 3pm, so we went into the town on our last day to do some last minute shopping. On returning to our apartment at midday, we found that costa's had taken all of our belongings out of the apartment (including our clothes) and dumped them in a pile near the pool!!

Would've been a perfect trip if the owner was a little friendlier!!

so one of the first things the ageing owner asked 4 teenage girls was "if you need any help in the shower, i can help."
if your like taking out your own poo bins, rubbish, having smelly showers, the same towels and linen for the whole time your there. well you are definalty going to the right place.
ohh and if you ever would like to cook in the apartments start cooking your dinner when you wake up cos thats how long it takes to get teh water to boil.
costos than also tried to say that we hadnt paid him, and that there were only 3 girls at the start of the holiday not 4. when we got our paper work out he just went ohhhh no no im sorry yes my mistake, he was just trying ot rip us off!
if you want to get checked put by sleezy old greeek men, than by all means go here, costos will most certianlly always be up for a perve!
have fun!

Electric plug sockets hanging out of the wall (owner said "just dont plug anything in"), door frame coming of the wall (owner said "dont lean on it or it will all come down"), blood on the steps leading up to one of my parties bedrooms, death trap beds, shower didnt work, logger sat in the toliet waiting for you, which will not flush away! bucket outside door with some kind of waste!!!! The block stank and was the most dirtiest / death trap rooms i have ever been in.
Owner laughed off our concerns and said "dont worry its only somewhere to sleep", "its a 0 star, not my problem"
