We have just had two weeks here on a last minute bargain. Negatives bedroom very basic bit spotless, air condition and fridge had to be paid for separately which we have never come across before. But apart from that we had a great holiday. Food was excellent always lots of choice, the staff are very helpful and kind. There is free wifi around the pool and in the bar. There is entertainment on every night and it had a great swimming pool with lots of sun beds . It was just off the Main Street too. All in all we would recommend this hotel...

I have been here 6 times now and everytime it has been perfect. The hotel os lovely and the staff are welcoming and friendly. There is a good choice of food everyday. The hotel is very clean, the rooms are ok, could do with abit of an update. The pool area is good and the location is perfect with shops, bars and the beach just a stone through away. Corfu town is worth a trip to see.

Booked this holiday only 2 weeks before we went, very good deal price wise. Always a little bit wary when booking late deals, but no need to worry with this one. Helpful, friendly staff. Buffet style meals, continental breakfast, evening meals were nothing fancy but have to say every one I had was well cooked, tasty and hot. Rooms and hotel spotless, only gripe was basc bathroom facilities, but no different to the standard in many Greek hotels and apartments - but always a good and plentiful supply of hot water. Quiet location, but within easy walk of four lovely beaches and the night life is there if you want it. Top tip, don't forget insect repellant (if only mosquitoes sucked fat, not blood!).

We arrived at 10:30 pm and the room we were allocated was not suitable for someone with mobility problems, this was sorted within minutes very efficiently by a very friendly and sympathetic receptionist. Breakfast was typical continental buffet style with an English option available for €2. Dinner was buffet style with a wide range of choices, all well cooked. The whole hotel was spotlessly clean and all the staff were really friendly and helpful. Good situation, only a few minutes walk from the beach and other lively bars. Close to car hire and excursion companies. A very good holiday for us. We will definitely return.

The hotel is located very close to the strip/beach so you have not got to walk far to get anywhere. The staff are very helpful and friendly. When we arrived we got given the wrong room with 3 single beds instead of a double bed but the reception girls sorted this out very quickly and we were given the double room.

If you are looking for Greek colture then you are going to the wrong place as i found out. Sidari is a purpose built resort pretty much for the English. I hated the fact that everyone was English and Everything was catered for the english as i wanted Greek colture.

I enjoyed Sidari but i will not be returning to Sidari, i enjoyed the hotel more than the place (Sidari). It felt like a chunk of English land had been cut and moved to Greece as there wasnt much Greek about it.

Room Tip: try and get a room at the back of the hotel so you are not kept awake at night by the noise from dru...

This hotel is a great place to stay. Good food,very friendly staff,entertainment every night,near beach,no steep slopes to beach if walking is a difficulty. Beds a little hard,but not bad.great value for money. This is our second time of coming to this hotel,came in 2009,nothing changes,it's near lots of bars and east to book excursions up the road to other places.

Room Tip: Got a room at back,not much of a view but lovely and quiet at night

Just returned from the Alkyon hotel in Sidari Corfu.
Rooms cleaned every day (except Sunday - which is standard for the region)
Well appointed. Comfortable. Standard continental breakfast (fruit, cereal, eggs, cheese, cooked meat, toast, tea, coffee, fruit juice and as much as you want. Dinner buffet style. Plenty of choice and a good standard. (No upset tummies) Pool area very nice. Clean water. (No ear infections) Pleasant staff and good service. Reasonable prices compared to competition in area. 3 euros beer. 2 euros coke etc: Spirits around 3 - 5 euros. All good quality product (beware of some local bars. You may pay top price for lower quality spirits advertised as English brands. Drink bottled beers instead of draught - cans of pop or bottles instead of draught)
Entertainment every night. Not the greatest in the world but as good as anything on offer throughout the resort.
Air con in every room.
Overall we had (the wife and me) a very pleasant stay and would recommend the Alkyon as a good value for money destination hotel.
PS. Beware of the mosquitoes throughout the resort.Take some repellent and get a plug in mossie killer.
Enjoy.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet and well appointed.
