“Great holiday - nice area - good nightlife.”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

I went to Loxides apartments for a week with my friend (2girls aged 19) from 31Aug 2012 - 7Sep 2012. It was clean and the staff were friendly. Its literally about a minute walk to beach and Strip, lots of nice restaurants along the way - we quite often went to the one just outside for english breakfasts. Good steakhouse restaurant too - Some cheesy entertainment in some of the pubs/restaurants but all good fun. Ice club was good - held a foam party one night which was funny. Beach was nice although we didnt sit down on sunbeds as we couldnt find any free ones - but we walked up the cliffs and layed there for a bit anyway which i prefered to the sand and people were jumping off the cliffs into the reef-free water below which was good fun!. Weather stayed hot. Also went on a couple of excursions but its worth booking with the people round the corner from Loxides - (we booked with rep because she said the ones down the road didnt have proper insurance etc but they did - they were lovely and much cheaper) No complaints, hope to return :)

My Husband and I have just got back after a week away in Corfu., we were only looking at a cheap break away somewhere hot, pretty open minded on a destination, so popped in to our local travel agent and they came across Loxides Hotel Apt (Olympic Holidays), ticked all the boxes, weather, location, flight times etc.

Once we arrived at the hotel after a long 2 hour coach journey on very narrow roads from the airport, we were greeted by the manager who seemed friendly. This was the beginning of a very disappointing holiday.

We were a little disappointed that our room was on the ground floor, in the corner of the hotel, we had requested a first floor room but we understood they couldn’t always honour these requests. The room itself was very basic and average but thought for what we paid it was fine.
A few days in to our holiday, we were getting ready to go out for the day and I noticed a couple of cosmetic items were missing from my makeup bag, then My husband noticed our shower gel was not there from the previous day, even thou we are very safety aware people when we travel.

We confronted the manager regarding this and he said all his staff are very trust worthy. He pretty much dismissed our concerns, at this point we felt very uneasy. We’d spoken to another couple who were also staying at the hotel and they said they also noticed items were missing from their room on the same day.

From this point on we couldn't wait to leave the hotel, over all the staff were rude and very unhelpful. We would never go back to Loxides Hotel but would go back to Corfu, it was a nice place to visit.

Arrived back 5 oct after 2 weeks at the Loxides. Studio very clean and light although the beds were very hard. Yannis (owner) and Rochelle very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Very good location about 10 mins frim the strip but good local tavernas near by which is much quieter.
We ate at Dorathea's Corner which is just off the strip and backing onto the beach with a table looking out onto the sea, which was perfect as the weather was brilliant (all fortnight) The food was excellant - traditional Greek which we like. We also went to Kelly's Ice House also off the strip and backing onto the beach. The ice creams were wonderful and the wine was good also.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 302 which wasn't overlooked but some noise from room above (scraping chairs on fl...

we have stayed at sidari for many years we always stay at trivizas but as like most people we had to cut down so looked for somewhere cheaper that we knew.....we had seen loxides from the outside and thought it the obvious choice ......it was the cheapest on the olympic web site......to start with our airport was changed from birmingham to manchester which we wasnt happy about the airline was small planet we had never heard of them.....budget airline to say the least no tv or radio ........we arrived at corfu and spent the next 4 hrs on the coach doing drop offs round the island.......we arrived at loxides to be met by the owners who took us to our rooms.......the rooms were basic and not very clean......the shower curtain had mould all over it...... the rack that held the plates and dishes was rusty.....the bathroom had a bricked up window with a small air vent on it.......we had notices in our rooms not to use their towels for the bathroom floor but we had no choice as the shower heads were blocked up and sprayed everywhere......the floor behind the door was filthy ........ the beds were very hard i dropped something down the back of mine so i had to move the bed it was filthy my husband wiped it with toilet tissue it came up black there were webs on the back of it and dead insects on the floor.......a few of the plugs in the room didnt work......we found the staff there not very plesant they hardly spoke to us i dont know if its because we didnt spend money in their pool bar but not very friendly.....except for the cleaners they were nice......i wouldnt stay at loxides again i know we wanted cheap but at least it could have been clean..........

Just arrived back from a week staying at the Loxides Apartments. Apartments were spacious, clean, new linen and towels given throughout the week and excellent location, close to Sidari strip but enough of a walk for it to be quiet. Yanni was very welcoming and Dimitri, who runs the bar was outstanding, his food is incredible (I especially recommend the Pork Chops!) Would happily stay again! All I would say is that if I stayed again I would pay for air conditioning, £5 a night, as it was very warm. And mosquitoes are a pest!!

Room Tip: Get air conditioning in the summer, we went in early October and it was 21 degrees at night.

booked this holiday for myself and daughter and 3 and 2yrs old grandsons, two weeks sun and sea ,or so we thought.Started off badly, after arrival at 3am we discovered no cot for youngest, although we had booked it all, rep was rude and said to wait till morning but toddler would not have stayed in bed without cot. after much fuss a cot was obtained and we all went to sleep,Yannis(manager) said in morning had been a mixup and was sorry,although basic all was ok, we were close to pool and yannis and all cleaning staff all spoke to grandchildren every morning, kids like the friendly manner.After 7 days we were told one morning by cleaner that cot was being removed but we would get another, we questioned why and was told it belonged to olympic(who we were with) and they wanted it back ? we were then given a broken cot then that was changed for a "playpen"then when making beds discovered mine and grandsons bed was covered in mould, as soon as we complained no staff spoke to us or grandsons again,its all fake my 3yr old grandson trying to talk as they walked by and was ignored as we had dared to ask for clean mattress and safe cot,olympic rep (andrea) is rude and lazy and only talks to people that buy her expensive excursions, i have made a formal complaint to olympic but doubt whether anything will be done loxides appears to be nice, beware beds are stored in sheds,sheets and towels stink as not washed properly and manager and wife are only happy if you shutup and just let them drink all night in the expensive bar, shall never go to that place again

Third time in Sidari, two of those being in this year and this was by far the best accommodation we've had in a long time! The apartment was spacious and well laid out, we chose a one bedroomed apartment over a studio, even though there are only the two of us.
Another bonus was the clean linen and towels half way through the week, not usual for Greece!
The weather was fantastic, we arrived just after the 2 or 3 days of storms so we were lucky, Boss man was a bit of a stickler, walking round barking at the guests about their keys on check out day, when I spoke to him he didn't answer ... and they'd gone overboard a bit with rules and regulations, never seen so many tacked up in the apartment! Also an A-board asking you to shower by the pool before you went up to your room if you'd been on the beach, ha ha ha
We didn't visit the pool or bar but both looked ok.
Good times though, Happy Holidays!
