“Best Holiday Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

This was our first time in Corfu and what an amazing place. The best holiday I have been on and that because of the Corfu Palmar. The moment we arrived we where greeted possibly by the nicest, caring family who run the hotel who make sure you stay is incredible. The hotel is perfect for relaxing and soak up the incredible sun, the pool is really nice and a overall a relaxing stress free holiday.

Just a 10 min walk down the road is the most beautiful beach with two little island that you can swim to and see amazing scenery, also there is a 20 min walk to the main town so everything is reachable. The food at the hotel was absolutely incredible. Me and the girlfriend love going out to restaurant and trying food but when we had food at the Palmar it was so much better the food was fresh and it's home made.

If you visiting Corfu for the first time stay at the Palmar hotel. It will make you want to stay and never go home, i'll be defiantly coming back soon.

Just returned yesterday from an 11 night holiday at the Palmar and both me and my wife had an amazing time.We arrived and was greeted by the lovely Evie who showed us promptly to our room and what a huge apartment it was,bedroom,sitting room with kitchen ,everything we needed was provided including all cooking utensils which were not needed as the only thing we made in the kitchen was a cup of tea as we ate in the hotels restaurant for every meal as the food is fantastic which was mainly cooked by Maria who is lovely.Costas and Spiros with Costas`s wife run and own the Corfu Palmar with their daughters and Mamma Maria are a warm,friendly,pleasant charming and cheerful family who would do anything for you nothing is too much trouble for them.The whole complex is kept spotlessy clean,plenty of sunbeds around the pool.Met some of the lovliest people whilst we we there and had some really funny nights and the karaoke is a real joy(fish bowls for the ladies especially).As I said earlier just got back yesterday and have already booked for next year.Thank you to the whole family and their friends for giving us the holiday that we needed.

Have just arrived back from 10 wonderful days at the Palmar. Having read all the reviews before we went we knew this place sounded good. Well this place is truly amazing, from the moment we arrived we were greeted by Spiros one of the brothers in the early hours of the morning, we were shown to our room and had bottles of water, orange juice and tea and coffee waiting for us, a lovely touch after a long journey. We then went straight to the bar for a cold beer. This place is so friendly all the family are just wonderful and really make you feel part of the family. Costas, Spiros, Evie, Maria and the girls are so lovely, nothing is too much trouble. The food here is outstanding, Maria is such a good cook and a lovely lady, portions are huge! We ate here most nights as the food was outstanding and very reasonably priced. The apartments are of a very high standard and very clean, the cleaner came in ever day apart from Sunday and did an excellent job. The Pool and bar were just wonderful. We met some lovely people here and so many people we spoke to were return guests and we could see why. A couple of minutes away is the super market and various bars, the first beach is also just a couple of minutes away, and the strip about a ten minute walk. We were two family's of four and all the children had a wonderful time. We can definitely see why so many people come back here, we all felt so relaxed. We would certainly recommend this place to anyone, its outstanding. Can't wait to return next year. Thank you so much to the wonderful family xx

We returned after such a great time last year. Costas, Spiros, Evie, Maria and the girls are all such lovely people. Nothing is too much trouble. Maria's food is sum of the best we ate. The bar is open until you want to go to bed and the cocktails are amazing!!.....just the right distance from main strip and lots of restaurants - cactus jacks is amazing if u like mexican.
We saw 2 families from last year which was nice. Appartments are well kept and spacious - sum have 2 balconies. Thank you once again for looking after us all. We will def see you all again. Kirstie, Matt & Loren. X

Our first visit to Sidari, we booked the appartments from the travel agent's brochure, so when we read all the good reviews later, we were quite relieved. On arrival we were not disappointed, and thought the drinks of orange that were waiting for us were a very nice touch. The appartment was spacious and well maintained and all the communal areas were equally as pleasing, but what made it really special was the friendliness and helpfulness of Costas, Spiros and all the family - nothing was too much trouble. The location of these appartments is ideal too, just on the outskirts of the main strip, 10 min walk away. We would definitely recommend the Palmar to families, couples and singles alike, and wouldn't hesitate to return there ourselves.
All the Best to Costas & family, from Clive, Sue & Mark (Gate 7)

We stayed here as a couple for 10 nights and even after the 10 nights we did not want to leave one bit! These apartments are situated on the edge of the main centre of Sidari. The location is perfect as you are a few minutes walk right into the centre but still a little further out for peace and quiet. This place was suitable for absolutely everyone. There were older couples, families, young couples and everyone seemed to love it equally! So many people we met were returners for years and years, we can definitely see why.
Days around the pool were extremely relaxed and quiet with plenty of sunbeds/umbrellas and a lovely atmosphere. Food was available at any time, whatever you desired. Evenings were excellent too, with a very lively atmosphere if you wanted to join in! Free shots all around! And lovely food too.
The two brothers, Costas and Spiros, who own this place were genuinely two of the nicest men we have ever ever met. They were so helpful and very laid back. Not only were they great hosts they were lovely people to get to know and talk to.We had a couple of minor things we needed fixing in our room and this was done immediately with no question or fuss what so ever.
The Canal D'amour is about 10 minutes walk away which is a lovely scenic place and has a 'tunnel of love' to swim through with your partner, or if single to find one! This was a lovely thing do and apparently a large tourist attraction for Sidari.
We went on the 'Blue Lagoon' trip. This was an all day excellent value for money trip. However it was a bit long as you are out in the heat for over 12 hours. But still recommend this if you like boat trips where you can swim in the sea etc.
Sidari was excellent with a huge number of restaurants and bars (slightly over priced shops too!). There was something for everyone, from karaoke bars, cocktail bars, mexican's, greek tavernas, beach front restaurants and a couple of clubs.
This holiday as a whole was excellent and the Corfu Apartments absolutely made it. There really is no better place to stay in Sidari and we hope to return one day.

We booked to stay at the Palmar from the 17th June till 1st July after staying at other apartments on a previous visit. We walked past the Palmar and thought it looked lovely. We were not disappointed.
On arrival Evie met us and showed us to our two rooms a one bed apartment and a studio apartment they were just as expected having stayed in Greece on many occasions.
What make these apartments so special are the owners.
Costas, Evie, Spiros, Maria and the girls are the most welcoming and friendly people we have ever met in any of the Greek islands we have been too.
We spent many a late night at the bar with other guests that we had met there.
My daughter wanted to pack Maria in her suitcase and take her home as her cooking was so good. Thanks Maria xxx
We went to the Greek night, which we would highly recommend the food and entertainment were great. It also gives you a chance to meet the other guests staying at the apartments.
The pool party/BBQ was one of the best nights of our holiday.
We ate to much, definitely drunk to much, met some lovely people had some great nights and very relaxing days just what makes a great holiday
Thanks Costas, Spiros, Evie, Maria, Elpida, Dimitra and the dogs for the best holiday. We will return sometime soon!!!

P.s As promised a parcel is winging its way to you as I type this. Hope you get it

Thanks Again

Lexy, Malcolm, Ellen, Ryan and Danielle
