A calm haven
Posted Oct 1, 2015
Sidari Beach Hotel is a lovely hotel that is sadly situated in a horrible town in Corfu. The hotel itself is almost faultless - the staff are perfection, the hotel modern and clean, the food really good quality and the location really great - i.e. away from the main town on a very quiet road overlooking the sea. The only issues with the hotel are that there is no beach directly in front and the beach in Sidari is worth giving a very wide berth. You need a car to get around from the hotel as it is 45 mins from Corfu town (or 2 hours on the bus) and 1 hour to the nearest, nicest beaches (Paleokastritsa, Kerasia). Also, wi-fi is only available in the reception area (not even in the dining room or outside deck) so you need to be prepared to switch off whilst you're there or sit with in reception (which is comfortable actually!) Rooms are furnished very well with comfy beds and pillows, half decent hairdryer, fridge, electric safe, plenty of wardrobe space, good shower and decent air con. I'd stay there again because it was a really classy place, but be prepared to venture outside Sidari everyday unless you just want to sit by the pool.
