Well me and my girlfriend stayed at megali luxuries from 12th to 19th Oct 2012...we arrived in corfu for our first time during a storm on friday night. got to the apartments, luckily we had read reviews on here that said to check the board to see what apartment you are staying in, although 2 lovely ladies were on their patio and told us we were in apartment 1. The key was in the door, which was good as we didnt have t stand around in the rain or walk far. to our rooms. We decided to go self catering for once as we always go all inclusive, but as I am a fussy eater, we thought it would be nice to eat out with the option of cooking facilities. Well the apartment we stayed in, apartment 1, was lovely. The living room kitchen was nicely decorated, modern style, with a flat screen tv (excellent for films on laptop, as the tv channels are limited to news unless you are german or indian.) the kitchen was well equipped, microwave combi oven, sandwich toaster, hobs, fridge freezer, etc...and a 1.5 litre bottle of water, which was excellent due to late arrival, and lack of open shops. The living room had a sofabed and table and chairs, and sliding doors onto a walled patio area with table and chairs. There is also a communal outside barbecue, although it was far too cheap too eat out over there, so didnt need to use this. we also had our bedroom up a quirky spiral staircase, where we had a twin put together as a double bed, plus large wardrobe, and free safe. there is a lovely swimming pool with some sunbeds, due to there being only a few apartments, there is always a free sunbed. Sidari is also full of stray cats and dogs, we seemed to have attracted 3 or 4 kittens for the week (we are cat people) theywould come to our patio all the time for food or milk or water, but I did have an altercation with an english couple as he thought he could kick the cat from their patio,literally kick!!I was disgusted, and was close to kicking him. I was disgusted...!!! Fanis the owner is a really nice guy, on one of the stormy days, when we lost power, he was out in the rain wiring up a generator to the mains to ensure we had some sort of power.Also due to our late departure on the last day, we asked for a late checkout, Fanis told us to pay the cleaner a few Euros (15) and we can stay as long as we wanted on that day,meaning no issue of lugging baggage around (as there is no luggage room at Megali Luxuries) Excellent place to go if you dont want all the hecticness of a busy complex.Fanis is also good friends with Jim the owner of Jims mopeds, somewhere you have to visit for a good price on quad hire...Fanis also owns a bar in sidari plus the gift shop opposite...when we first met him he offered us a free drink in his bar, although as we were so busy enjoying ourselves all week, we didnt take the offer of the drink. Sidari is lovely, and a really good place to visit for a small town. The canal d'armour is a definite to visit for a lovely little cove. The boat hire on the beach is also very reasonable. We spent most of our time in the One for the road bar just off the main strip. That place is brilliant, a really good place to go and Napoleon is a star, and got us sooo hammered each night the amount of free drinks he gave us...we have never seen anything like it. At one point we had a bottle of tequila put in front of us and told to drink!!! Will definitely be going back to corfu again, if we stay in sidari, Megali luxuries will be the place we stay again. For a recommendation for the best steak in sidari, visit Dorotheas just off the crossroads, towards Megali beach. This lovely greek restaurant were excellent, check out their reviews. see pics on this review for the steak Dorotheas served me.!!!.
