Stayed for one week in July 2012 booked on a late deal. This is a pleasant hotel in a great location - only 300 yards to the beach. It has a great swimming pool and plenty of sun lounging areas around it - getting a sun bed was never a problem. The rooms are clean and fresh, although the colour scheme will not be to everyone's taste (Orange). We had two rooms, one for parents and the other for children. Our bathroom needed improving - a shower that flooded every time due to an inadequate shower curtain, but the children's one was fine. Air conditioning is available for €25 per week, as are fridges (€8) and a safety deposit box (€8) - found this a bit off putting as it is located in the lobby and everyone passing can see you getting your money out etc. The small private balcony was just right for sitting out on.
The big let down at the Alkyon is the breakfast. There is little choice (only 2 cereals, toast, rolls and mini croissants) and after a few days it begins to get very repetitive. Using fresh fruit instead of tinned fruit cocktail, fresher bread (it seemed to be fresh every other day) and a wider choice of cereals would make it so much better. The cooked breakfast is available for an extra €2 a day but was not great (although the sausage did score highly). We did have a couple of snack lunches and they were ok.
We had a great week in Sidari and would recommend both Corfu and the Alkyon for those looking for a bargain break.
