“Our 3rd time at Billy`s”
Reviewed September 1, 2009

As the title says it was our 3rd stay at the Andromeda. I can only agree with all the comments above. Billy and his family make your stay enjoyable from the beginning to the end. I know you read these comments Billy and you take note of what your guests say. We have enjoyed every minute that we have stayed at the Andromeda, you are made to feel part of the family. Its the little touches like the cold orange juice and chocolate cake on arrival that make all the difference. Nothing is too much trouble for Billy, and like someone has said if he can get it he will. We feel like we are in our second home when we stay here.
It is far enough away from the main resort, however you can take a lovely stroll along to the canal`d`amour where there are some lovely restaurants and bars. I would recommend the Orchard as it is all locally produced food, and Debbie and George make you feel very welcome. Sunset beach is a must for watching the sunset over Albania while you enjoy a relaxing drink, the views are stunning and one of the best in Corfu.
We are going back to Corfu on the 11th Sept 09 but unfortunately we are unable to stay at the Andromeda as Billy is fully booked,however we will be heading down to the Andromeda to say a big HELLO to Billy and his family. We would recommend this hotel to anyone, and if you don`t like it then there is something wrong with you. Mark and Ann

Well, here it goes!

This was my return trip as i previously stayed in the Andromeda back in June 2007, when i saw it in the brochure i knew that was the place i wanted to stay in, so when we went back this year we didnt even question where we were going to go, we walked straight into Thomas Cook and said Sidari, 2 weeks in June at the Andromeda! Sorted.

When we arrived, we thought billy didnt recognise us, but how wrong were we!

Billy made a beeline for us and was glad to see us!

After getting settled, we knew what we wanted to do, chill out, straight out to the pool, which is cleaned every morning and night, we love this place as it is set just outside of Sidari itself, a nice peaceful little walk into town which helps clear the cobwebs from the night before, for 26, im not one of these out all night party people, i like a quiet night in too which is great at billy's, but when i wanna party, i party! i have had 2 birthdays out there now, my 24th and 26th and we celebrated in style, this year, billy took us into sidari and spoilt us! Hospitality from everyone was great, and sometimes when my partner and myself went back to these bars during the day, they remembered us and free drinks were offered!

we came to the conclusion that the prices havent changed much since we were last there, and we always thought billy's was resonable on price, if you want stupidily cheap then go into town and drink as much as you can, but hope your prepared to be hassled by street sellers!

The Andromeda is a family run hotel and everyone helps out, its clean and cool, set out of town for that bit of relaxation and piece of mind from the road if you take kids, where other hotels have their pools right on the roadside which should really be a no go if you have kids!

We never have any problems at billys, have recommended it to lots of friends and will always go back for many years to come, if anyone wants to give this hotel a bad rating, then go ahead, im sure that you were out to pick faults with your holiday to start with! but i know that billys will always be my second home, i love this place so much, and im miss billy! Hopefully i may get to go back and have a greek wedding!!!

Well what can we say, we have just returned from our 2nd time at the Andromeda. We went for the first time last year and booked to go again this year the day after we got back last year. We couldn't wait to get back there to see Billy and his family. Billy really does make your stay in Corfu excellent, the rooms and facilities within the Andromda are great, maid service is excellend. You only have to ask for anything you need and if Billy can sort it he will. Costas and Chris were fab bar staff and well we couldn't have managed without Nelly and Mama cooking for us! On the rare occassions we did venture out it was only to go and re-visit Bikolis (a Taverna just along the road, turn left out of the hotel and it's a couple of minutes walk, just on the left hand side) to see Nicos and Eleni and enjoy sonme fab food and wine or to go to Sailors (just before you hit the strip in Sidari on the right) to see Spiros, where the food is also excellent. We had already booked our holiday for next year before we went back to Corfu, we are going to Turkey but have decided that we definitely need another visit to Andromeda so will be visiting in September next year.

I can definitely see us holidaying at the Andromeda every year, which is always something I said I'd nevery do, until we spent our holiday there. Billy certainly makes the holiday!!

Third visit to Sidari but first time to the Andromeda and what another fab time we had.
The apartments are wonderful, we had a duplex with double bed upstairs and 2 singles downstairs. Lovely and spacious. Billy and family were wonderful, and the young barman that started there was doing fab by the end of our 2 weeks stay.[Costas].Vangelis brilliant,who helped us find George who used to run the Spirodula.
Mainly ate at Alexis . We would be in there about twice a day . One for a quick pint on the afternoon after our walks about and then for a lovely evening meal.To be hosted with Eric and Charlie.Yannis and Bikilos also nice. . Cape Drastis is a most . Just before Sunset beach. Its a steepish incline up but the views are worth it once up there. Then the scrabble down to the cove is quite a suprize. Theres a hut where you can get drinks from . Sunbeds available althought no beach as just a rock formation, We got the boat back round to sidari. Took you in all the little coves was brilliant. 20 euros for the 4 of us.
Also we did meet some lovely people which we had some brilliant laughs with, Espically in the flyin ant storm. Great hols ,great people ,great apartments and staff.

This place is absolutely fantastic. From the moment we arrived, Billy was the perfect host. We couldn't believe the size and cleanliness of our apartments. Billy, his lovely family and the brilliant staff all made our holiday very special. I've been to Greece a few times, and I've never been to apartments before that were so spotless, our rooms were cleaned every day and the pool was also very clean. Great atmosphere at the bar, where Billy and the bar staff always treated you well. Would really recommend the Andromeda to anyone, we travelled with our 6 year old daughter and it was fantastic the way that Billy and his family were with her, they really made her feel special. If you decide to venture away from the apartments, try Alex's (go left at the fork on road to Sidari), we had a couple of brilliant nights there with Alex, Eric and Charlie the talking parrot. The location of the apartments were perfect for us, although close enough to the lovely resort of Sidari (5euro taxi trip or 25 minute walk) , we were still far enough away to experience the 'local flavour'.
We were all very sad to leave the Andromeda. Honestly can't describe in words how terrific this place is and how much as a family we enjoyed our holiday. We met some very nice people, an if they ever read this, they will know who they are.
Thank you Billy for a wonderful time, your hotel and hospitality is second to none. Can't wait until we come back.

After being on a coach for what seemed like forever and dropping people off at some 'not so nice' hotels, my friend and I couldnt believe our luck when the coach pulled up outside the Andromeda ...
Once inside the reception we were greeted by the very happy and very friendly, Billy!! He gave us a glass of orange juice and a well needed slice of cake and this is where our brilliant holiday began!!
We felt like part of the family, Billy and all his staff were fantastic and we enjoyed many a night in the bar with laughs a plenty!!!!! The bands on saturdays and tuesdays are fantastic and the greek BBQ on a Thursday is well worth the 15 eruos.
All the rooms have a pool view and are really spacious and ours stayed quite cool! We didnt use the utensils as we ate out for all our meals except for breakfast, so we only used the toaster!!!!
It is a walk to get anywhere but this didnt cause us a problem and its only 5 euros into sidari centre, Billy said the area was totally safe and we had never had any worries.
The pool area is fab, loads of sunloungers which are never all occupied ... altho some people were leaving their towels on the beds overnight but this wasnt needed!!!!!
The only dissapointment we had was only booking for one week, we didnt want our holiday to end and when we left Billy was there to say goodbye (and it was emotional!!!!!!!) ... I never usually go back to the same place twice but we loved Andromeda so much that we have just booked to go again in June 2010 ... this time for 2 weeks!!! Its popularity shows as the 2010 summer brochure came out on thursday and when we booked on saturday there were only 5 rooms left!!!!!!!
How anyone can moan about this place I do not know, it is fantastic value for money and I have never met such lovely and welcoming staff!!!!
Its going to be a long year but the wait will be worth it!!

This really is lovely accomodation.After dropping off other people (at places we were relieved we werent staying in ) we finally arrived. First impression was wow what a lovely place. We had a ground floor room in the first block and were quite impressed with the size and coolness.Its true that there arent many utensils but we never cook anyway so that didnt bother us. If you need anything just ask.
The pool area is lovely and while we were there very quiet, one day there were only 5 people including me and my husband round the pool. The water was very cold though once you are in its fine!
It is a good 30 minute walk into Sidari but turn right out of the hotel and there are a couple of places to eat after walking for about 15 mins another 5 mins brings you to Canal d,amour where there are more places to eat and drink and shop if you dont want to go that extra 5 mins into sidari itself.It is a bit of a trail but we managed to walk down and back every day it means you dont have to worry about your diet as you can walk off the fabulous food.!!!
If you turn left out of the hotel you rech a place to eat in less than 5 mins keep going to Peroulades another 5 mins. carry on going andyou will reach sunset beach about 25 mins from andromeda. We went early morning and the tide was still in so we had a drink and walked back!
If you want to see the other parts of the island book in town but make sure you know what you have paid for. Make sure entrance fees etc are included or that you at least know you might have more to pay when you get there.
All in all a lovely peaceful place to holiday. We never go back to a place but if we did we would go back here. Enjoy.
