Just arrived back from an excellent holiday at Sidari Village.
Thanks to Mammapogue for the tips.
We arrived at around seven at night and found the staff to be very helpful, taken to our rooms via the minibus, nice clean rooms, towels changed daily, kettle and fridge provided, tv shows two english channels, ITV and BBC news.
Food always a good selection at each meal, only had potatoes twice in a fortnight, particularly enjoyed the squid. Selection of hot meats served each evening, wine, lager, tea, coffee and soft drinks served with main meals, good range of salads, desserts were yummy.
The snacks were cheese pasty's, sausage rolls and sandwiches,although we didn't have the snacks as the meals were filling enough, ice cream in five different flavours was available all day too.
The pool bar was the bar used, except for when it rains and then the roof top bar is opened, think this is an excellent idea as I could imagine the roof top bar getting very hot and uncomfortable in hotter weather.
Camelot bar opens later and is a payable bar, seems a waste of a bar during the day as it could be used as a sports bar showing football and other sports, still charging for drinks as the people wanting to watch football had to go to the Lagoon bar or onto the strip.
The pool was kept clean, it was quite deep for non swimmers or young children but there was a small pool for children.
Didn't have a problem getting a sunbed each day.
The entertainment team were excellent providing daytime activities which included aqua aerobics, water polo, killer pool and a daily quiz. There was a activity centre for the children too.
The night time activities included kids hour, cash bingo, name that tune, quiz and then for the last hour it would be a cabaret show or family fun hour.
Congratulations to Kirsty, Mark, Emily, Carly and all the rest of the team for keeping us entertained, the name that film charades was hilarious.
The drinks were limited to two per person at a time but that was quite sufficient. The list of cocktails were fun to try and you could get whatever drink that you wanted within the all inclusive range. Glasses during the day were plastic for obvious reasons but at night they were glass.
Sidari is a beautiful place to visit, the view from our balcony was breathtaking, we visited Canal D'Amour and got some great photos of that and Albania, also some good shots of the lightning storm that occured while we were there.
We went shopping on the strip and were surprised to find that we weren't hassled by the shopkeepers at all, the restaurants and bars were touting for business but weren't pushy, which was refreshing compared to other resorts we have visited.
In short friendly staff, clean hotel, great facilities, good food and plenty of drink.
A couple of bad points, not enough toilets around reception and the pool.
When it rained our hallway in our room flooded, ( the rain was torrential and for one and a half days), we told reception and they cleaned everything up and gave us extra towels to replace the ones we had put down to stop the flow of water.
The dreaded hill wasn't that bad and could be bypassed by using the stairs or the bus which runs from 8am til midnight.
Be warned mosquitos and wasps are aplenty, take plenty of spray.
We had a power cut, which wasn't the hotels fault as the whole island suffered.
Overall I was very happy with the hotel and the facilities, however Cosmos who we travelled with were abysmal and I wouldn't recommend anyone travel with them, we had a catalogue of errors from start to finish, which the hotel and others sorted out for us.
I will return to Sidari Village in a couple of years with the children and grandchildren, but I shall make sure I don't travel with Cosmos.
