Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A party of 14 of us (3 families) recently returned from The Sunshine Apartments and I can honestly say it is one of the friendliest hotels we have ever stayed in.

The staff were amazing from the moment we arrived to the moment we boarded the transfer coach home. Athina (the owner), Gemma and Soula could not do enough for us.

The apartments were spacious and clean albeit basic, but very comfortable. We had a beautiful pool view. The food in the hotel was delicious throughout the day. Plenty of sunbeds around the pool so you didn't have to wake up crazy early to secure one.

You are about a 15-20 minute walk into town but there are bars and tavernas along the way. It's a peaceful location. Our friends from home even came and spent most days with us (they were in a hotel across the street but preferred our accommodation to theirs)

I would not hesitate in recommending Sunshine to any families wanting a holiday in a very family oriented accommodation. They really do go above and beyond for guests.

The pool party and bbq were great fun. Under the circumstances around COVID-19 the staff handled everything wonderfully. Hand gel was provided all around the accommodation and staff always wore PPE.

Air con charged at 40€ per unit per week so for a 2 bedroom apartment budget 80€ per week and the safe a charge of 15€.

Thank you for an amazing holiday Sunshine, I can honestly say you would not be disappointed with your stay here. Love The Wilson's

Firstly this is one of the only places me and my family felt sad to leave as our experience here was amazing. When we arrived late in the evening we were met by Dimitris (who is an excellent host and nothing was any trouble when you needed anything) and shown to our 2 bed apartment and as a nice touch he had left us a bottle of water in the fridge which was welcomed after a long trip. Also he recommended a place to eat close by as they stopped serving food at 5pm.

Yes the apartments are basic but they are in keeping with others of the same standard that I have stayed at in Greece. They are very clean as the cleaners came what seemed to be 5 or 6 times a week during our 2 week stay which was good. Yes you are given a toilet roll when you arrive and as they are self catering you are expected to provide additional ones during your stay which is common in this type of accommodation. As mentioned the air conditioning is €10 per night per room so for a 2 bed apartment it is €20 per night (as mentioned in a previous post energy prices have gone up in Greece as well) for we felt was reasonable to ensure a good nights sleep but it is up to you if you want to have it or not, alternatively fans are available to rent for around €25 a week per fan.

The pool area is very clean and there’s plenty of sun beds/chairs available to use and we had no issue in getting one each day. The bar was very good and was reasonably priced (€3.50/€4 for a large draught beer, €8/€9 for a cocktail) for the service that you will receive, as people have mentioned Dimitris’s cocktails were amazing and beautifully presented. We did eat in restaurant a few times and it was excellent in the quality of the food and a big thank you to Athena who was happy to accommodate any requests with the especially as my wife has a food allergy. Although they usually stop serving food at 5pm they do have evenings where they offer a set menu for €16 for 2 courses including a glass of wine/beer/soft drink for adults and for any children they can order from the children’s menu. Also they have Greek night every 2 weeks which is brilliant and well worth going to, we even managed to get our teenage daughter to get up and join in with the dancing. Can highly recommend the gyros wraps from the menu. Also a big shout out to Leigh was also brilliant behind the bar.

As mentioned the apartments are on a road with no pavements outside but this is very common in Greece and was no busier than walking down a country lane in the UK and we felt safe walking out during the day and evening.

Overall I cannot recommend this place enough and we are hoping to return here soon as it is perfect place for rest and relaxation.

Great hosts, lovely food, gorgeous cocktails and excellent location.

We stayed here as a family of 5, July / Aug 21.

The rooms are basic and dated but we knew that when we booked and it had absolutely no impact on our holiday whatsoever. The cleaner visited most days, with towel and bedding changes regularly.

The apartment had an iron, small ironing board and a hairdryer. The kitchen was fine and had everything you would need to whip up a small snack but it would've been useful to have a few more utensils.

The family that run the business are lovely, as are the staff, and really do make you feel at home, without being overbearing on your stay.

The food is good and well priced and the cocktails are delicious - The Chocolate Dream is a must!

I would say the apartments are in the perfect location, away from the hustle and bustle but still within walking distance of everything there is to see in Sidari.

It's easy to see why so many people return year after year and although we don't tend to revisit the same places we have already started looking to book a short return visit next year, after our travels.

Thank you for a lovely holiday and we hope to see you all in 2022.

Louise, Chris, Corey, Jay & Oscar

We are still here and just coming to the end of our holiday.

All I can say if what a fantastic place. Dimitris is the most excellent host best we have ever encountered. Leigh is fantastic, service with a smile at all times. Made us feel very comfortable, especially my Father in Law who is an early riser and felt comfortable enough to have his breakfast alone every morning.

Yes as previous reviews the air con is €10 a night per unit, if you have ever visited any Greek Island self catering you will know you have to pay for this. It is expensive however please bear in mind that Greece also has had rises in energy costs just like the UK!! Toilet roll yes you have to buy your own however one is provided at the beginning of your stay. Again this is the same at all other self catering apartments we have stayed at in Greece and for the sake of €1 for a couple of rolls is it really worth moaning about.

Rooms are basic but very very clean and the most comfortable beds we have stayed on yet on our many trips to Greek Islands. Yes the shower floods however it is similar to a wet room and is no hardship to mop the water down the drainage hole. We are staying in a 2 bedroom apartment room 9, set away from the bar area and very quiet. The 2 beds have an upstairs room which is perfect if you have older children. My Father in law is also staying in a studio with no complaints. There was a bottle of water in the fridge on arrival which was a welcome surprise after a long day of travelling.

Food here is fantastic, try the cheeseburger it is wonderful. Dimitris cocktails are also very good.

Location is excellent, close to Canal D’mour and 15 minute walk to the strip.

All in all we have had a wonderful holiday and we will return.

Thank you all for making our first holiday in 3 years such a pleasant one.

Yamas!!

We stayed at the sunshine apartments as a couple and it was absolutely lovely. Basic accommodation that is spotlessly clean and so quiet at night. Paying extra for air con was well worth it if you like it cold at night. The beds are very comfortable and have black out curtains which provide an amazing nights sleep. The location is excellent for the canal d’mor beaches which are all a couple of minutes away as are the local restaurants. Very clean pool and lovely family run taverna serving home cooked food, drinks and great cocktails . Dimitri and his family are excellent hosts and so are Tony and his wife. Clarence the cat 🐈 and the family dog also made our stay. We loved the sunshine apartments and will definitely return. Thank you to all who work there x

Arrived home after a weeks stay at Sunshine apartments and studios. We stayed in apartment number 7 and it was spotlessly clean and comfortable with everything we needed for a self catering holiday. The lovely cleaner came in 3 times over our 7 night stay with fresh towels and bedding.
The location of these apartments are brilliant, with supermarkets, gift shops, beaches, bars and restaurants very close by and they are about 15 minutes walk away from the main strip of sidari.
The restaurant at Sunshine is fantastic, offering breakfasts, lunches and snacks.. also they offer a set meal on some evenings for €16 which include a drink!
The pool area is lovely and well maintained with plenty of sun beds.
Dimitrijs and Eleni at sunshine will do absolutely anything for you and are so friendly, nothing is too much trouble. We really enjoyed our stay at Sunshine Apartments and Studios.

Dimitris, his mum and dad could not be more welcoming.
Yes the apartments are basic but with added extras I did not expect! Ironing board & iron, mossie plug in repellent and tv with 3 English speaking channels. The only thing I would have liked was a chest of draws.
Room we had was called a studio but I would have called it an apartment as it had a separate bedroom, apartment was cleaned daily with fresh white towels, bed was changed mid week.
The whole area was spotlessly clean.
We only had snacks and breakfast at sunshine but it was good quality and well presented. My husband said they were the best sausages he had had in many years (need to up my game)
A few minutes walk takes you to several restaurants and mini markets. The main strip is about 15 minutes walk where there are endless choices for food and entertainment
Dimitris offers direct bookings and has special offers for May & September
If you like a simple style holiday run by a lovely family you won’t be disappointed.

What can I say about this place absolutely loved our holiday here we stayed for 2 weeks the rooms are what you expect for Sidari basic but have everything you need we had a family room which was two floors with more than enough space for the 5 of us. Cleaners came every 2 days and new bedding and towels twice a week. The gardens and pool area are well maintained and generally well looked after. The pool is easily big enough and there’s plenty of sun loungers and seats around the pool area. The owner Athena wow what I can say she really is amazing nothing is too much for her at all she’s lovely and the kids loved her we really feel that we made a great friend in Athena. Gemma the bar lady was also amazing very friendly always had time for a chat and went above and behond her duty it was my daughters 10th birthday while we was away and Gemma made that night special for her decorated the table and chairs with banners and balloons and also sorted a special cake which was excellent. The food was always very nice never had a problem and also great price. I would highly recommend this place Without hesitation 10/10 we all loved our holiday and will be definitely visiting again sooner the better

We’re just at the end of a lovely 2 weeks here. It’s been really relaxing and restorative. Dimitris and the rest of the staff are so friendly and helpful.

The apartments are in a great area of Sidari, situated at the nicer end and near to the beautiful Canal D’mour.

The cocktails are gorgeous and the food is delicious.
Greek night is every second Sunday and was great fun with huge mounds of delicious food and lovely entertainment. The set menu is really good value and again, delicious.

I feel that the negative review is very unfair. We’re in Greece, the apartments do not pretend that they are 5 star (you’d be paying 3 times the price if so)
The cleaning lady keeps the apartments spotless and everyone works so hard to ensure that you have a wonderful holiday.

Come here and support a lovely and hardworking family at these great apartments.

Thank you all :)

Having had time to reflect, I feel that the bad reviews I read are very true. The welcome you receive when you get there diminishes as you are treated on how much you spend in the restaurant or behind the bar.
We arrived late to find out the aircon was 10€ a night. We had booked for 21 nights 😯 I offered my card and was promptly told he could not take that amount on a card, I had to pay cash. That cleared us of the cash we had.
The appartment itself was dated and worn and I was ensured that nothing had changes for 22 years, which was their last visit.
We had cracked tiles, spraying faulty tap, and cobwebs everywhere. There were air fresheners in the cupboards and drawers so I removed them to find that they were masking the stench of damp.
There were large damp patches in the bedroom and in the hall area.
The shower was awful and you had to mop the floor to prevent an accident as it sprayed everywhere and the drain was too raised to take the water away.
Every couple of days, the toilet smelt like raw sewage when you flushed and the water was dirty brown coming out of the taps.
Have never had to buy toilet rolls whenever we have stayed. Clearly Tui clientele are treated as second class as when rooms were made up for non Tui guests, the rooms were provided with welcome packs, fruit bowls, beer and the usual washing up liquid etc.
The road from the apartment to the restaurants was dangerous and other guests felt uneasy about taking their children along it at night.
Tui you need to look into this and smend your description as I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.
