Just got back yesterday, after spending 2 weeks at the Lagoon, Sidari. We had a fantastic holiday, at a 'reasonable' place to stay, & with the nicest, most friendly, & helpful staff ever.
First things first - this is not the 'swishest' of places to stay, & nor does it claim to be. What it is, is a MORE than adequate place to stay - rooms are big and spacious, & off a decent standard. They serve their purpose.
The only negative is the air conditioning - apparently its now the norm to charge for it (I wasn't aware of this) it was not included in the holiday cost, or room charges. It wasn't cheap at 7 Euros per day - which comes to a whopping 98 euros for the average 14 night stay - that was an unexpected & big chunk taken out of our holidays spending money. I wish our tour operator (Cosmos) & the hotel would do an all-inclusive deal, & warned us in advance.
The receptionist - the wonderful, helpful, bubbly, & beautiful Amy - is super friendly & helpful. Nothing was EVER too much trouble for her, & she goes more than the extra mile to help the guests. Always got a smile & a friendly word for everyone - cheers Amy!
The pool area is always clean & inviting - the guy looking after the pool & gardens does an outstanding job.
They've been mentioned by others - but the bar staff - Denis, Alex, Christina, & owner Spiros are all fantastic. Once they know your name, they'll remember it. A nice touch. Again, these people go above & beyond the norm, to ensure your stayis the best it can be - the staff at this place, MAKE this place the great place it is to stay. It was noted by myself & others, the amount of people that return here year after year. What does that tell you? For actual accommodation I would give it 6.5/10. For the staff at the Lagoon - its an easy 10/10.
For top places to go in Sidari, I would recommend the following places:
For a perfect meal in nice surroundings - The Three Little Pigs. We ate here about 5 nights out of the 14. A great meal every time, great surroundings, & a nice atmosphere. The restaurants away from 'The Strip' were certainly better, & seemingly cheaper. Another REALLY nice place to east was the Sunshine Restaurant - which backs onto the beach, & is actually on the strip (next to the SOS bar). A really nice place - great food, lovely staff & a nice spot overlooking the beach to watch the sunset.
A truly great holiday - made that much better by the awesome people & staff we met. Thanks again Amy, Dennis, Alex, Spiros, & Christina. We'll be seeing you again
