We stayed for a week starting 28th September 2012. We did not arrive at the hotel until 11.00 pm after a late flight and were welcomed by Melanie, the receptionist. We were asked to drop our cases in our room and then a 3 course hot meal was served to us by Maria, the waitress. This was a lovely welcome.
We had a room overlooking the pool area with sea view with a shady balcony. The balcony has a private wall either side but the front is an open shared terrace which was no problem. As it was very hot weather we appreciated the shade. It was a comfortable room but even though it was small there was ample wardrobe and drawer space. The bathroom was fine with a good shower. Air conditioning is free with a remote control and there is also an electric ceiling fan.
Food is excellent. All meals are waiter served with a good breakfast selection including a fried English plate, and dinner is a 3 course meal which always included 1 or 2 Greek/Corfu dishes.
The drinks are not overpriced and the selection of wines is good.
All of the staff are friendly and most speak good English but are happy to practice some Greek with you. The reception has a handout of useful Greek words to try at least a few phrases. Also at reception is a list of local walks, bus timetables and other useful information and currency exchange.
Sidari itself is a bit brash and lively with lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. Plenty of tribute acts and shops. Food and drink is not expensive - one bar was offering a pint of beer for 1.50 euros but on average 2.50 euros wil buy a pint of draught and 3 euros a bottle of Mythos. Wine is relatively inexpensive by the glass and plenty of cocktails available. I particularly liked the ice coffee with icecream at Talk of the Town.
We hired a car for 3 days which was worth it to see the beautiful scenery in the North of the island. Driving is very easy and the roads are quiet - most cars seem to be driven by tourists. Corfu Town was a bit more difficult.
This an excellent small and friendly hotel which we would recommend to anyone. The sea view rooms are worth paying the supplement for as they are quiet. We would certainly return in the future but will again take mosquito repellent with us - they were a nuisance in the resort.
