“Basic accommodation, but great place.”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Went there with my girlfriend in the last week of September and we absolutely loved it. We went self catering. The rooms were basic but they were fine as we only used them to sleep in and wash in. They are cleaned more or less every day and they are well kept. The staff are excellent and very friendly. The pool is a good size and there is always sun loungers free. The food in the pool bar is decent at a decent price and the food in the restaurant beside the apartments is even better. We would definitely recommend staying here.

I visited the Paradise Apartments back in May this year and was extremely impressed!! The apartments are in the perfect location, very close to the beach but just off the main strip of Sidari - so you can actually sleep at night!
Maria who works at reception is lovely! All the other staff are lovely and friendly too and are great with the children.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and had lots and lots of space, even our balcony was massive!
The rooms were cleaned every day except one day in the week.
We stayed Half Board, but when we go again, we would probably just do self catering as we ate out every morning and almost every night aswell - nothing wrong with the food on my part (just that my partner is fussy!!)
Looking forward to returning, hopefully very soon x

after the hair raising coach transfer which took us up and over a mountain, arriving at the paradise apartments was great. good looking apartments and our large studio was massive, a really great start.air con was 35 euros for 1 week and safety deposit box 7.Took precautions for the mozzies every night and only got bitten on the last night! The air con wasn't cold enough for my taste stuck on 16. Great resort and the canal d'mour beach was a great hit with my teenagers.safe beaches clear water and lots of watersports on sidari main beach..Our favourite restaurant was right at the far end of main strip called medeterrneo. lovely food and great service. went on 2 trips with vlaseros travel.Corfu town cruise and paleokastrisa. well worth it. downsides health and safety a bit lacking sometimes in corfu and no many public toilets so you have to use restaurant facilities. weather first week in september was 30 34 everyday, bliss. the paradise pool did turn my kids white costumes green, a bit of a worry. would definatly go back to paradise again.

We had a lovely week at Paradise apartments, excellent staff, clean rooms and balcony facing pool. The staff couldn't be more helpful. Bars are also very good with plenty of entertainment in almost every place. Food is excellent in most Restaurants with friendly staff. Premier Bar has entertainment every night and thanks to Dave for being very helpful when we needed it. Only down side to holiday was Vlaseros Tours Booking Shop in Sidari cancelled our day trip to Corfu town because of the weather and we had a lot of problems trying to get our money back from Phillip. I would definately go back to Sidari but remember your mozzie cream and antiseptic cream for bites the place is teeming with them.

Like linda s we got well and truely shafted on aircon (room 210) paid up front for two weeks use and had the maintenance man out four times and he still didnt fix it ,never had a refund as the rep kept making excuses as to when the manager was around so was useless.This was our 5th visit to sidari as we really love the island and the people but this was the worst due to the poor accomodation, after the aircon the fridge door kept falling off, then the shower was temperamental sometimes working sometimes not, the floor of the apartment never got mopped and was always filthy and the bed had about 5 slats in it so it felt as if it was going to break at any minute, also the linen smelt awful after coming back from the laundry !
Worse to come was the pool cleaner swilling out ashtrays in the top pool which always looked dirty with a permanent green line of algae around the edge (change your filters eh !) after witnessing this we went to the beach everyday which was brilliant.Staff always miserable looking seeming very reluctant to actually serve drinks, but im not surprised working at this hovel, I am honestly gobsmacked by the good reviews about this place they must have been wrote by friends or regulars, do yourself a favour unless you like slumming it and the worst dive in blackpool is you cup of tea give it a miss theres a lot better places to stay for this price in sidari with friendlier staff who try there best for the paying customer.

Room Tip: Any room in a different hotel !

Got back from Sidari in Corfu on Monday and still wishing I was back there. My family and I stayed at the Paradise Hotel self catering. The overall place was pretty good, the pool really big, loads of sun loungers and the bar and food was great. The apartments were pretty standard basic Greek accomodation but okay. Last year we stayed in Minorca at the Talayot and those aparments were amazing, so I unfortunately compared these to last years. So if you go expecting basic, you won't be disappointed when you stay here. All the staff from the cleaners to the bar staff and the reception staff were absolutely fantastic, really helpful and really friendly. The Greek people couldn't have been nicer. They treated my kids (girl 8 and boy 3) like Gods! The actual resort of Sidari was a nice surprise - just right not too lively but enough going on to keep everyone happy. All the resturants were fantastic and the food delicious and especially good as they are situated right on the beach. While you wait for your food, the kids can play on the sand and you can watch the sun set. The beach is also fantastic and great for kids. We went out on one of the yellow boats, which you can drive yourselves - definietly recommend doing that.
All in all a brilliant holiday - the island of Corfu is beautiful and the Greek people will bend over backwards for you and are just so friendly!

Room Tip: Unfortunately the Paradise is situated on a very busy main road. Takes a bit of getting used to esp...
