“value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

Just returned from a week at the takis apartments in sidari and had a lovely time. I was a little concerned after reading some of the reviews but was happy with what we got for the money we paid. There was everything you need in the apartment i.e. microwave, toaster, kettle etc.and the pool was the best yet, Sun all day long , clean, warm. Christiana was lovely and couldn,t do enough for you. We had mosquito nets and we paid extra for air conditioning which was a god send because of the heatwave they were having. We will be returning sometime in the future.

Room Tip: Rooms 4 - 9 are the best. They overlook the pool.

Being a travel agent we can be quite critical about our holidays but wow you will not be dissapointed with the Takis apartments(not to be confused with the Takis Efi) We had a 2 bed apartment plenty of room spotlessly clean, we paid 5 euros a night for air con. Big balcony with table and chairs. You are no less than 5 min walk in any direction for places to eat plus supermarket is 1 min walk away stocking all essentials. Christiana works every hour god sends and is always on hand. The pool was spot on and you could always get a sun bed, infact some times we were the only people in the pool which my two young boys loved. Personaly we enjoyed going into Canal d'Amour area for somthing to eat in the evening and stinky bridge is very stinky but my boys loved feeding the turtles in there. All in all we had a fantastic experience and Greece is Greece its still in development but what the heck.. I love the people so friendly and can't do enough for you. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

First of all, "Takis and Effie" that are mentioned in these reviews are actually somewhere completely different. These apartments were run by Demitri and Litsa last year (2012) and this year (due to "family difficulties" apparently) are run by Takis's daughter Christiana.

We arrived to find that the was perfectly clean and, amazingly for anywhere abroad and especially for Greece, absolutely huge. We were a family of five in a two-bedroom apartment and we could easily have fitted another one or two in there with us. Our towels and bedding were changed far more often than the advertised once a week and the apartment was kept to a very high standard all week.

Air conditioning is extra, €70 for our apartment and €35 for a studio, but it was money well spent. The units are very efficient and we were extremely cool every night. The mossie nets over the beds were a bonus, anyone that's holidayed in Corfu will have tales of bites galore and every bit of defence is useful.

Christiana and her staff (all female) were fabulous all week. They literally couldn't do enough for us. Drinks in the apartments aren't cheap, and the food is good quality but not particularly plentiful but if that's an issue for you then step outside the apartment and walk five minutes to any number of restaurants and bars that will happily offer you bargains. Our particular favourite was "The Family" which is almost opposite the front path to the apartments.

The apartment blocks (1 and 2) are a short walk from the road on either side which means that there's no passing foot traffic whatsoever. This makes for a fabulously relaxed environment around the pool. We never struggled to find five sunbeds in a row regardless of time of day and everyone mixed easily. The beach is five minutes away, Canal d'Amour about the same and the main strip perhaps ten minutes stroll at a push.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough - you'll really regret leaving.

My boyfriend and I holidayed at the Takis apartments from the 15th of July to 22nd of July 2013. There's two different buildings Takis 1 and Takis 2 but they're right next to each other and you share the same pool, we stayed in Takis 2. Before we went we had concerns from looking at the maps that the hotel wouldn't be very close to the beach but it's actually only a 5 minute walk away which was perfect!

The hotel itself is in the perfect location because its halfway between Sidari beach and canal d'amour which is beautiful. And the apartments only 5 minutes away from restaurants and bars. The restaurants on the side of the sidari main beach and the main strip are more contemporary places and most of them are on the beach so you can catch the sunset while you're eating. The restaurants on the canal d'amour are more traditional Greek restaurants.

Our apartment was very clean when we arrived and was visited regularly by the cleaners who where always very polite, the area is notorious for mosquitoes so they provide mosquito nets over the bed. The swimming pool is large and clean. The pool bar was also very good and often daily food specials if you wanted to eat there. Christiana who owns the Takis 1 apartments worked behind the pool bar every day and was always very welcoming and helpful.

All in all it was a great holiday.

We stayed here in September 2012. The coach transfer took longer than the flight (3 & half hours) and was just soul destroying, so first off forget the transfer and get a cab, it's cheap and will take about 30 minutes. When we arrived Effi, who is Takis's wife seemed very grumpy but she was ill apparently. We got shown to our apparent and it's was pretty big as there was just the two of us it had two bedrooms and large kitchen. We lucked out there. Hardly any stuff to cook with though ( pots pans etc) they have plates and cutlery but they are on the cheap side. Grounds are ok, the cleaning lady tends to their gardens everyday. Although most of the grass was dead by September due to lack of water, you could still have a nice relaxing few hours by the pool, with the bar right there and a nice selection of drinks and ice creams. We spent most of our time at the beach though outside BED BAR. Free sunbeds when u buy drinks etc from there and thier beach waiters Panos is an absolute diamond. He is very helpful and friendly and did not once ask for a tip!! Although he did get some at the end of our stay. We spent most of our time in bed bar as we felt the entertainment in the others was so repetitive and annoying. We loved Sidari. It's not posh and not anywhere near 5 star standards. But we get that when we go to Vegas and places like that. That's why we're going back in August 2013.

Just back on 24th after a week stay Christiana was a great hostess pool is better than most very clean loads of sunbeds and mosquito nets in rooms are a bonus only advice DON'T BOOK WITH OLYMPIC I understand delays happen but our return flight wasn't direct we stopped to re fuel in Milan due to the aircraft Olympic use not being able to hold a full tank and still be able to get off the runway the flight attendants said this was normal practice and as Olympic are using them all season they must be aware of it but as normal we were not informed by our rep we have used Olympic for many years traveling to Corfu but will never use them again if you have booked with Olympic good luck as our journey home took 7hrs for a 3.5 flight

we booked up last min and got a bargain, hadd been on here and read some of the reviews
but when we arrived it was fantastic had a very spacious 2 bed app, clean and effort had been made to make it welcoming flowers and mozzie nets over the beds, the complex is small but well maintained and the owner was very friendly and always made a fuss over the children, the food was well priced and very nice, a daily special was always available made fresh couldnt fault it,
poll was cleaned every morning and the cleaner was in every day always done a excellent job also very friendly, fantasic holiday would go back again
