This hotel is a little gem. It has a great location, right on the strip of Sidari, walkable distance to all the bars & restaurants but far enough from the main part of it to have some peace & quiet. Also is a stone throw away to the beach and the "canal de amour".
The hotel itself is very nice, medium sized pool with enough sunbeds for everyone, there is always space for you regardless of the time of day.
Rooms are in the small side but spotlessly clean. They have hairdryer and a tv, be warned only one channel in English but hey! you are not going to be glued to the telly on holidays!
The restaurant-bar is good size, again, there is always a table available to have your meal.
We were half-board and both breakfast and dinner were served buffet style, very generous indeed. Breakfast is basic: toast, very nice croissants, tea or coffee, Greek yogurt... and they do an English cooked breakfast for 2.50 euros.
The choice is amazing at dinner time: salads, different meats, different desserts... we didn't have one bad meal, it was all delicious and very varied, we were there for 2 weeks and hardly saw any dish twice. Rice was good, all the pastas were very yummy too, steamed vegetables, so it was also healthy. Greek dishes were amazing, specially the stifado, moussaka and the calamari.
All the staff was very helpful and very friendly all the time, they really work hard!
It is good value for money, as its not 5 stars... but you don't need more than that to relax ;)
Only bad point is that they need to install some zappers because the flies are everywhere!!
An advice: as soon as you arrive, buy mosquito repellent and the tablets that they sell in all the shops in Sidari, the hotel has the piece where you mount them and plug to the wall so you only need the refills. The mosquitos are an issue there.
