“Still Special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2011

Well, we went back to Katsaros.....and nothing significant has changed. If anything, we may even have had a better time this year. We'll be back....One recommendation, the transfers to and from Sidari can be lengthy (took 3 hours back to airport this year) So if there are say 4 of you, or you have young children, consider booking a taxi that will take you direct to your accommodation.

Just returned from hols at Katsaros Pool, Sidari, Corfu. We stayed in a 2 bed studio, which was (as expected) basic, but clean and airy. The room was regularly cleaned and towels were changed twice during our 11 night stay, which was more than adequate.
The Katsaros is situated in a quiet location the outskirts of Sidari centre which is a 10ish min walk away. There are several tavernas/shops along the walk.
Fotis, the owner, prides himself on keeping the cleanest pool in Sidari, which is exactly what he does. There are loads of sunbeds and brollys around the pool which is a good size.
Vasso, Fotis' wife, does most of the cooking and dishes up lovely food. The special breakfast is good value and a real all-dayer. All the traditional dishes are available too.
Sidari itself may not be to everyone's taste, as it has expanded somewhat uncontrolled over the years and the beach is not the best. However, I would say that it has 'something for everyone' from lively club/bars kids attractions, souvenir shops to more traditional tavernas that serve tasty local food & wine. The beach is kept clean and the water is warm and shallow, ideal for kids. There are also plenty of water sports to try.
Fotis keeps the Katsaros bar area lively and sets up regular entertainment for those that want it.
Katsaros is a place that people return to year on year, and a browse through the 3 volumes of guest comments - from kids to grandparents & from couples to singles - tells you why. Fotis and his team (mostly family members) make every visitor feel special. Their hospitality & friendliness are second to none...

we arrived 13th october 2008, although the surroudings were very picturesque the hotel itself was very disappointing, they only changed the towels once during the two weeks we stayed there and the bed linen twice, not one door closed properly even the wall cupboard and wardrobe door, and the cleanliness could and should have been a lot better, while fotis was a nice enough chap i am afraid to say he should have managed the place better,
the fridge was dirty and the cooker plates rusty,would not recommend these apartments to anyone who expects cleanlines.
would not go back there again............

  • Liked — the area, pool and bar restaurant.
  • Disliked — the accommodation

Last minute booking,,,,My husband and i stayed in the studio, very basic but very clean,cooking facilities if you wanted to, but the barfood and breakfast excellent served very early till 9.30pm, my teenage daughters ( two at 15 and 1 at 20) stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment which was lovely and sleeps up to 5.
All apartments overlook the pool, which was always clean, plenty of sunbeds and parasols.
Supermarket directly outside the apartments and a gift and clothes shop
Bar stays open till as late as you want.
5 minute walk from the beach (canal d'amore end) and the strip with a large variety of bars, restaurants, and shops, including 2 chemist, there is a doctors 2 mins from the apartment should you need it.
Fortis the owner was brilliant, we were delayed and arrived about 10 o'clock at night he carried my daughters suitcases up to their apartment, then we asked him where the nearest restaurant was, but he phoned the chef who returned and cooked 5 of us a meal.
Sidari is suitable for all age groups, there was something for everyone a lovely resort.
We also went 22 years ago and there have been lots of changes but it hasn't lost is character we will be returning to the katsaros again next year.

  • Liked — The pool,the poolbar and atmosphere and the cleanliness
  • Disliked — nothing

We booked this studio at the last minute so were a bit apprehensive, however from the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome.
the rooms are basic but clean, the pool is a good size with sun loungers and parasols.
the bar served great food, at good value for your money.
Fortis one of the owners was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble and we had many a late night enjoying ourselves.
He has the Internet which he charges 3 Euros for an hours use, there is also a pool table, and playstation also with a small charge to use.
The studios are about 10 to 15 minutes from the centre of Sidari, so very quiet, but there are plenty of Tavernas nearby.
We had a very enjoyable holiday.

  • Liked — Good location, Staff were excellent
  • Disliked — Very basic, but most of the accomodation in Greece is, so not a problem as we are used to it.

I spent 4 days in a great place called Lake Plastira. It's an artificial lake that its waters have made the surroundings an absolute heaven!
The hotel we stayed in was small,with only 4 rooms and 1 suite with a fireplace, but very cosy and warm. The beds were new and comfortable, the heat always turned on and the hot water plenty all day round. The family that owns it is very friendly and makes you feel right at home.
The only drawback, that needs further attention is the breakfast plate that they serve. It was quite predictible and standard for a place which is famous for its delicious pies and local dishes. The owner promised to take care of it, though!
Room service is available as are the snaks and endless cups of tea or coffee we drunk, which are also very cheap.
What i really liked was the rooms' decoration, traditional with contemporary touches here and there.
For its money, 65 euros w/breakfast during the high season of Christmas, it's a place i would definitely visit again.
