The Wave
Ranked #1 of 71 Specialty Lodging in Sidari
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 1, 2013

The Wave is a family run set of apartments just outside of Sidari (10-20 minute walk) in northern Corfu situated mere meters from the ocean. Travelling with my daughter, wife, sister-in-law and mother-in-law we booked a one bedroom and a two bedroom apartment which the management contrived to locate adjacently which was very helpful throughout the trip. The rooms were reasonably clean with excellent air conditioning (important when the mercury hit 35C). The pool area was very pleasant with sufficient sunloungers, and a small play area that my daughter enjoyed.

We arrived after a very long day and were given welcome drinks on arrival. We then ate in the on-site restaurant which served the best moussaka ever! Indeed the restaurant was so good (and reasonably good value) that although we cooked in the rooms a couple of times we didn't eat supper anywhere else.

The area was quite quiet for sleeping, with the only negatives on the entire trip being the number of mosquitoes (and what can the hotel do about that?) and slightly weak (but free) wi-fi. We'd certainly recommend to anyone looking for a base of operations in the north of Corfu.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back are a bit farther from the (not especially busy) road and restaurant so might...

This was our 2nd stay at the Waves and it isn't the last!

It's a brilliant little set of apartments! Just so quiet and peaceful. It's a family run establishment with the most lovely people. The rooms are basic but they are very clean. The apartments are about 10-15 minutes away from the main strip. You are basically just seconds away from the beach. We ate from the bar at breakfast and dinner and it is reasonably priced with good food. The two brothers who run the bar can't do enough for you. We had problems with our transfers and they were more than happy to help us get it sorted out. The pool area is very clean and relaxing. The pool is cold but once you are in you don't feel it. The cleaner cleaned our room every couple of days and she is lovely. Will definitely stay again this September as we just love it! Can't complain for the price... basic but brilliant!

Just returned from another fabulous holiday, thanks to the best hosts in all of Corfu. Mama, Spiros, Nicos and Christos a huge thank you for a great welcome and looking after us so very well again. For anyone who is thinking of going to Sidari you will be hard pushed to beat this place. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The hosts are really the best and nothing is to much trouble. The new family room looks fantastic. I can't wait to go again next year and help to celebrate their 30th birthday in business. A real home from home.

This was a cheap Internet holiday and I feared making a huge mistake having made a quick booking.. I seriously had nothing to worry about. The holiday was amazing. The room was clean and comfortable, yes basic, but that's all we wanted. The pool was lovely, the location was stunning, The food served in the restaurant was delicious, and the staff could not have been kinder and more accommodating. Free Wifi was a great bonus to us, and it just felt like paradise. Nicos and Christos work really hard to maintain a high standard of business and it was a pleasure to spent a week at The Wave.

We arrived at The Wave 11.30pm to be greeted by Nicos with a welcome drink. Nice balcony room
overlooking the pool and sea. Mum and Dad, Christos and Nicos could not have been more
helpful and friendly. Chatting to couples who have been going to The Wave for 18years, so that
tells you something. Food very good, just about 15mins walk into centre which suited us fine, will
definitely be going back again.

After two weeks spent at the Wave I can say that is a perfect place.Very good location quiet , safe and close to the beach .The apartment had a very pleasant sitting area where we could enjoy the vista; pool view, garden view and sea view. The apartment was cleaned every day.
Free wi-fi in the room.The food and drink on offer were of very good value and quality.
The owners ,Nikos , Christos , mum and dad who are all really lovely and take care very well of you.
If you're driving you should see Afionas an old Greek village with a fabulous view.
An entertaining nightlife in Sidari (15 min. walk)

Im shocked and upset by the former reviews of the robbed costumers. Im really sorry when someone robbed those people, but I dont see a reason to try destroying the reputation of this lovely business of those people in "The wave". I can perfectly comprehend the reaction of the owners; Im visiting corfu since about 15 years regularly. I NEVER EVER heard about a robbery. Corfu is known for being very safe. In 33 years this never happened to "the wave". That the owners are that shocked and out of their minds that they forget to offer drinks is for me perfectly comprehensible. Waiting 4 hours for having a lock drilled in Greece is amazingly fast according to my experiences. I never got the feeling the owners didnt believe in a robbery. They were rather really shocked and concerned. They changed the lock for the door immediately the next day.
My husband and me had a great time at "The Wave". Its a very special place with an amazing atmosphere. I would always go back to it.

Room Tip: We were very happy with our standard apartment. It is possible to get higher upgraded rooms like a s...
