Visited the Socrates last month and we were delighted with our accommodation. The hotel is just off the main road but it's a cracking location. Just above the beach, the views are amazing. Our room was a good size with everything we needed. Socrates and his staff will do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable, they are friendly and extremely hardworking. We ate at the Rock Restaurant which was tasty and good value. We liked the fact that there was room for everyone on the beach, lying in the gardens or by the pool. I think it's probably the best in Sidari. Recommend it to everyone because if we go back to Corfu then we will go back to Socrates.

Great appartments situated in a fantastic location of the Canal D'Amour......amazing sea views....
The Rocks Restaurant serves some of the best food in Sidari although a visit to the Three Piggies is a must with Greek Dancing of an evening......a relaxing holiday and a place to return to again and again.......

Visited Socrates Apartments in 2007 and again in July 2012 and will certainly go again. The location is beach front and a very short walk to a host of excellent tavernas. The apartments are very clean and comfortable and the Rock Restaurant serves some fantastic food both during the day and in the evenings. Socrates is a legend (apart from being a Chelsea supporter) and he made the holiday with his fantastic hospitallity, humour and evening cocktails in the hotel bar. Had teenage kids (17 year olds) with us and they spent their evenings in Sidari (10 minutes stroll) where they were safe and throroughly enjoyed the nightlife - busy and loud enough, although certainly not your ayia napa or magaluf. Tips - buy your trips there (not from internet or reps), exchange rate far better than in UK, The Rock Restaurant, 3 Little Pigs Restaurant, Mediterraneo Steak House. No need to go into Sidari for your meals and from what I heard, stay away from the Sea Breeze Restaurant. Would like to point out some negatives but there aren't any. If you read this Socrates - "are you sure".

Arrived at 4 am to be greeted by Socrates himself in a very warm welcoming manner. Asked us if we needed any snacks or drinks even at that time of the morning. We were extremely impressed by the friendly service and cleanliness of the apartment and restaurant. The food was very tasty and value for money. Socrates Hotel is situated in a very picturesque area with amazing views. It is within walking distance of all amenities in Sidari. We will definitely both be returning sometime soon.

on june 8th 2012 we went on hoilday to corfu. we stayed in the socrates hotel in sidari.when we arrived we was shocked to see how nice it was. people told us it would be very basic in corfu so i took my own pillows. our rooms were very clean and the towels and bedding were lovely and white.i didnt need to fetch any pillows.they change the bed every day .the food was nice, but we like to try all the different restaurants never had bad meal anywhere.the pool was very clean and plenty of sun beds.its a very friendly place. the location is great as it is a good walk away from the main night life.but still plenty of places to go. its had onething that played on my nerves a dog barking every morning early,
it got amazing views and a you can go for nice walks.i would definatly go back and recommend it to anyone.it was fab.
