Value Plus Travel - (Car Rental on Corfu)

Wendy C           

we have just returned and while there booked a car through value plus. Excellant service from Yannis. We also discovered that they will deliver a car to the airport. As we are planning to return next year we will book one on the internet because the journey to Sidari to our apartments took so long going to Kassiopi, Acharavi, Roda etc first. We also discovered we can book apartments dircet as well so we will cut out the travel agent and book direct. We also discovered having book 2 trips with our travel agent that the same trips booked direct at value plus were so much cheaper than through the reps. I know who I will be giong back to!!!!!!!

Christina Apartments - (Accommodation in Sidari)

Wendy C           

my friend and I stayed here in May found it to be excellant. Clean friendly and the food in the bar very good - breakfast well cooked and very enjoyable!!!

Nicos Apartments - (Accommodation in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

There is obviously more than one Nikos apartements we have just come back having booked privately ( much cheaper than a travel agent) I would recommend these apartments 100% Just go on the interent and book a flight and e mail yiannis@ysmasterpieces.com for availability - clean, big and quiet!!!!!

Romano - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

we have just come back fro Sidari and went to this resturant serval times due to the food being so varied and so good. Choice very good food, whatever you order fantastic. Servicew slow!!! Its not McDonalds!!!!!!! Give it a visit - you will not be dissapointed - but be patient!

Captains - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C

Value Plus Travel - (Car Rental on Corfu)

Sylvia C           

again we have used value plus for car rental ans it is simpley the best. Was at the airport when we arrived, and left it there when we departed. Thank you Sophie and Yannis

Boat trip and beach BBQ - (Corfu Excursions)

Sylvia C           

went on beach bbq arranged by value plus in sidari - coach trip to harbour in paleo and then boat to secluded beach - only accesible by baot! Fabulous trip and great food, good value for money, can recommend, very good value!!!

Aqualand - (Places to Visit on Corfu)

Sylvia C           

went to aqualand through value plus in sidari (do trips and car hire) worked out cheaper through them on the coach than through travel agent or indeed if you made own way. Coach trip and entrance only 19 euros for adult and 13 euros for child - small child free!!! Great day out!

Athena - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

went with husband son and grandson - menu suited all, service was not fast but hey this is not fast food. When it arrived excellant quality, taste etc. Give it a try steak fantastic!

Napoleons - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

again visted napoleons - great service - good price - we only use it for snacks - but great snacks. Cannot comment on evening meals- great service and such friendly service - give it a try!

Diverso Bar - (Bars in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

great place very comfortable and clean - great for a coffee during the day or a drink at night!!

Value Plus Travel - (Car Rental on Corfu)

Sylvia C           

we came back on Friday - first time in Corfu, we went with friends who have been many times. They recommended value plus to us for the car rental but because our budget was limited we toured the strip getting prices etc. We had to admit to our friends thry were right because we did not find a better deal and in fact wasted half a day when we could have been in the sunshine!!!! We were not dissapointed good price nice car! Thank you value plus.

Andrew S           

Went to Sidari for a week stumbled upon value plus because we were staying almost oppersite the shop had a car for 3 days and went to aqualand and beach bbq - great value - great service - Sophie and Yannis very helpful

Boat trip to Erikoussa Island - (Corfu Excursions)

Andrew S           

went again rgis holiday booked through value-plus. Great place, good price. No BBQ but the price reflects this and when you first arrive you will find a small cafe and the food is great - and cheap!!!! Dont go at the beginning of your holiday use it to top up the tan when you are already quite brown - you will then go ebony!!

McDonalds - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

what can I say - I do not want to eat bad fast food in Greece - if I wanted MacDonalds I would have stayed at home! If you really want a burger try the Texas bar in Sidari or Goodys in Corfu Town - far nicer.

Hydropolis Water Park - (Places to Visit on Corfu)

Sylvia C           

it is smaller than aqualand bot easier to keep on eye on the children if they are small, went with the grandchildren and had a great time. As stated easier to relax - although we enjoyed aqualand we were constanly on edge - here we relqaxed as well

Sidari - (Exchange Rates on Corfu)

Sylvia C           

the exchange rate at Value Plus on the main street as you come into Sidari oppostite the Oasis resturant appears to be very good - try it

I cannot believe that because I posted a comment against a statement by Alison Linb that I thought was very valid her comment has been removed to be looked at by a moderator over 2 weeks ago and nothing has happened!!!!!!!

Value Plus Travel - (Car Rental on Corfu)

Andrew C           

no problem my parents have been going for many years and always used valu plus becaue they found it such good value - this year I also used them and totally agreed with you that with so many good comments how could this site only score them at 7/10 ????? some of the sites have only had a couple of comments and score higher - How can that be ?????

Andrew

Romano - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Andrew C           

great place great choice !!!!

Romano - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Andrew C           

great food, great choice!!!!

Tex Mex - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

have to agree, was there is may when it first opened, waited a long time for food,waiter had hand held but did not seem to know how to use them!!!!! Tried again in June food still bad, service worse and price - very expensive for such poor food and service!!!!!!! Do not go!!!!!! Really, really bad!

Venezia Restaurant - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

how can you say the Pizza was one you would get from a freezer - when you watch the person making them!!!!!!!!

Jimmys Hotel - (Accommodation in Sidari)

Sylvia C

This year it was approx 20 euros for a taxi from the airport to Sidari. May be a little more next year

Sidari - (Resorts on Corfu)

Sylvia C           

regarding the othonos apartments we stayed there 3 years ago and although the tiles on the bathroom walls were dated the space was large and very clean. We go to sidari every year for twice and where ever we stay we always use the pool at the othonas apartments because we find the family that run it to be very friendly - helpful - and honest!!!! They do though get annoyed with people that dont follow basic rules of behaviour!!!!! quite rightly when they have to supply an environment to suit families, singles and older people. Great place - thoroughly recommend Tele (barman) and dimitria (mum) great people

Sidari - (Resorts on Corfu)

Sylvia C           

gaz c you are obviously a pratt!!!! corfu does not need people like you - ice cream with dog s**t on is what you deserve. take your self back to spain or the canaries they will understand you mental capacity - have good holidays, but not in greece!!!!!!!!!

Nicos Apartments - (Accommodation in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

as I said in previous the Nikos apartments we were at were obviously not these. They are in a quiet road near the Beach Star Hotel and do no have links with a travel agent they have to be booked privately (see the previous posting for e mail address) Lovely couple live on site. No pool but large apartments and nipping clean

Sylvia

Value Plus Travel - (Car Rental on Corfu)

Sylvia C           

never mind alison we know they are the best car hire and value for money for trips - also lovely people - so helpful

Andrew

Romano - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

We went there in June - just opened and were minus doors!!!!! food excellant great choices - very varied menu. Not keen on red wine being served from the fridge!!!!! Went back in Oct - now they have doors had to sit outside and wait for a table because it was full - greeks as well as holiday makers, good sign!!! The lamb chops are to die for and the pizza's are very good but red wine still cold!!!! You have got to try this restaurant it is sooooo good!!!!!

Salt n Pepper - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

have to say I dont understand the negative comments we have been coming to Sidari since 1996 - staying that time just a short walk from salt and pepper and ate most of our meal there - which were great. Have been since twice a year and still use this resturant - have never been dissapointed - huge breakfast - Give it a try!!!!!!!

Tex Mex - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

when we went in May we knew it was just opened so were willing for hic cups. Waited ages huge portions but bland and not nice to eat!!!! Service really poor. Hand helds taking the orders waitors kept coming back to check they had it right! Went again in June still poor service but food disgusting again huge portions but did not want to eat it!!!! Followed by huge bill!!!!The Margaretia's are awful! Dont even think about it. If you like Mexican take a trip to Kassiopi and vist Poco Loco for great food and great service great Margaretia - thoroughly recommended!!!
Sylvia

Trip to Aqualand - (Corfu Excursions)

Sylvia C           

we booked through Value plus in the high street in Sidari - so much cheaper than through the reps. a great day out. Picked up at out apartment - air conditioned coach - great value. Give them a try!!

Alexis Pool Studios - (Accommodation in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

have never stayed here but hey if you know you are staying very close to Sidari high street with all the bars and entertainment surely you realise that will bring some noise with it!!!! If you dont want noise choose an area away from the strip!!!!!!!!

Sidari - (Resorts on Corfu)

Sylvia C           

Lin what was the last post talking about yes people are entitled to their own thoughts but when it is someone who does not appear to have any cohesive thoughts you can undertand why the post has been removed - we do not need 'chill pills' just common sense dont you think!!!!

Sidari - (Resorts on Corfu)

Sylvia C           

Hannah

the pool is not dirty!!!!! How can you say that it is very clean have been swimming in that pool every year (most years twice) since it opened in 1996 never once have we had an infection from A DIRTY POOL - speaks for iteself

Sidari - (Resorts on Corfu)

Jade C           

Have been to Sidari with my grandparents for many years and this year went on a girlie holiday with freinds - great place - hired a car from value plus in the high street and had fabulous service Yanni and Sophie were so helpful - thank You

Sidari - (Resorts on Corfu)

Jade C           

was supposed to show excellant - forgot to highlight we liked it on previous post - sorry

Bar crawl with your reps - (Corfu Excursions)

Jade C           

I love Corfu and sidari but totally disagree with 'pub crawls' and do not think the travel agents should encourage this behaviour in any resorts ( except maybe Kavos) I think the majority of families/couples etc. who go for a holiday to enjoy the daytime sunshine and evening eating etc. do not want to join the reps all making fools of themselves and getting drunk! Travel operators should take ownership of what they are inflicting on the resorts!!!!!

Three Brothers Hotel - (Accommodation in Sidari)

Jade C           

we stayed at this hotel, was lovely but dont have the orange juice at breakfast - not pure orange juice. Only complaint so read into that what you will!!!!! Recommended!

Captains - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

We are returning to Corfu in May and will not be eating at this place

Athena - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

We are returning in May and will be visiting this eating place again - excellant

Romano - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

Going back to Sidari in May cannot wait to go to this eating place and again be amazed by the variety and good quality food and friendliness of staff - save me the best table

Tex Mex - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

going again in may but will not be visiting Tex Mex - tried it twice - crap food and service.

Salt n Pepper - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

Have been going to Sidari since 1996 always eat at Salt and Pepper great place  

Venezia Restaurant - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

Sorry lol Oakley you felt like that - we are going again to Sidari in May and will make a bee line for a meal here - great as most of the other comments echo!!!!

Venezia Restaurant - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

Previous comment should have shown EXCELLANT all through!!!!

Value Plus Travel - (Car Rental on Corfu)

for a slighly shorter e mail for valueplus car hire - which is the best in Sidari as far as we are concerned www.kerkya.net/valueplus
 
try it

Value Plus Travel - (Car Rental on Corfu)

Sylvia C           

Have just returned again from a great holiday in Sidrai and used value plus for the car - great service - what a great couple!!!!

Buddies Bar and Diner - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

 
we have been going to buddies  for quite a few years and Lisa works very hard to make it a great place - and I think achieves this!!! I am unsure where the post regarding victor actually fit into buddies. I know he is her husband but the business at buddies is run by her. The food is good, the atmosphere is good and the price is good. It is unfair she is scoring so low because some people appear to have a problem with Victor!!!!

Panorama - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

I presume this is the resturant at Sunset Beach - superb setting, great cill music, very restful and beautiful. Fantastic!!!!!

Romano - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

It is very difficult to find when you dont know where it is. If you follow the road that leads to the large car park  (at the crossroads where McDonalds is go past and opposite the paridise is the road) go to nearly the end and you will see Romano on your right. Very very good food. Used by many Greeks which I beleive speaks volumes!!!!!

Diverso Bar - (Bars in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

I think  it is unfair that you have allowed a comment about victor and the mint club to be displayed on this post - it could be seen as liable and maybe if victor ever saw this he would sue the sight - what has victor got to do with Diverso anyway!!!!!!

Horse Riding - (Corfu Excursions)

Sylvia C           

Havenever been mself but my daughter and husband went - they booked through value plus how specialise in trips and car hire situated on the main road into Sidari opposite the oasis resturant and further through the town near the bowling alley. They really enjoyed it and found it to be good value for money!!!!!

Romano - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

Been again to Sidari, returned last week. Had lunch and evening meal on several occasions were never dissapointed!!! Red wine now at room temp I am glad to say - in 2004 it was always chilled!!!!!

Try the meze - to die for!!! Lamb chops - wonderful, Pizza WOW,excellant chef salad - I could go on and on!!!!!

Venezia Restaurant - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

On returning to Sidari we ate again a few times here and had a great evening - good service - great food - and lovely staff. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant!!! Big George is totally crazy!!!!

China Palace - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

The chinese we went to was actually called China Town - excellant food, great service Pablo was great!! Have been a few times never dissapointed - highly recommended.

Buddies Bar and Diner - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

I find it very diffut to beleive the rating Buddies has on the front sheet. i.e. no comments - there are in fact 9 - 2 from  DG Lite who obviously had a problem with victor. He does not run Buddies Lisa does. 6 very positive comments regarding Buddies not reflected why? Check on the other posts from the negative comments, they are very interesting!!!!!

Buddies Bar and Diner - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

Having checked all the post from DJ lite I have concluded he is just a nutter - I am sure Sidari is pleased he went home!!!!! Your depression I think is Sidari's salvation!!!!!! I cannot beleive this sight would allow 69 posts on sites that have nothing to do with VICTOR AND LISA to slag them off. Is there anyone out there checking what peaople are saying?

Value Plus Travel - (Car Rental on Corfu)

Sylvia C           

To clarify Yannis and Sophie do have 2 sites - both called valueplus - the main office where they are based is in the high street when coming into Sidari from Corfu Town they are situated on the right hand side just past the Oasis resturant - the second office is at the other end of Sidari and is next to the bowling alley and opposite the taxi rank.

Buddies Bar and Diner - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C           

Look at Rob Mackie comments - highlighting DG Lites ! Nothing to do with Lisa!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lok forward to comments. Is there any controller for this site that actually bothers to read and vet the posts - I Dont think so - if there is I will probably have all the posts for tonight removed - that would be novel - because DJ Lite did not!!!!!

Trip to Aqualand - (Corfu Excursions)

Sylvia C           

Do not get this trip throught your rep!!!! They will charge about  37 euro's - its the way they supplement their wages - but the tour operators charge so much for their holidays so should be abe to pay their reps a good wage and not train them to continue to rip of the tourist - go to a local shop like valueplus and find the same trip for 18 euros!!!!!!! Why would you want to  spend 37 euros against 18 euros!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hydropolis Water Park - (Places to Visit on Corfu)

Sylvia C           

Booked the trip through Valueplus - great value = greay trip = good price !!!!!!! Try them !!!!

Sidari - (Resorts on Corfu)

Sylvia C           

Sidari can be anything you want it to be it depends on where you choose to spend your days and evenings etc. Most apartments do tend to be basic but very clean. If Jimmys was unhygenic then take it up with your travel agent. Next holiday you book go to the north pole because Sidari does not want people to return with your attitude.

Venezia Restaurant - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C

Was speaking with George in the winter and he has been asked to go back!!!!! Lets hope he does

The food is still good but he is a miss.

Kohenoor Restaurant - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C          10/10

We have been to, and enjoyed food at this resturant sinced it opened. It was great when we were there for a week this winter the restuarant was open Friday Saturday and Sunday. For eat in or take away. We had a wonderful takeaway and it worked out 'cheap as chips' but totally wonderful. Keep up the good work guys!!!!!!

May - (Best Time to Visit Corfu)

Sylvia C

May can be a truly magical time, with warm days, cooler evenings and fire flies visible on all the green areas Such a wonderful sight. However in early May it can still be cold in the day. Last year May was wonderful, but a couple of years ago I was there and it was sooooooo cold, rainy and only 2 nice days. However this year, in March I had a week there and it was fantastic. So You never know for certain what the weather will bring. However it is such a beautiful place there is so much to enjoy so dont get hung up on the weather just have a great time.

June - (Best Time to Visit Corfu)

Sylvia C

The weather in July is really beautiful, if you have the option of air conditioning take it, you will need it

Every thing is now open and Sidari is getting to be very busy. You can though still find 'quiet' places to enjoy. If you are interested in car hire or trips, then try Value plus. Situated as you come into Sidari high street on the right hand side of the road, just past the big supermarketo and also up near canal d'mour next to the southern fried chicken outlet. Value plus cars offer very good value for money and have fully comprehensive insurance (unlike some other operators) and the trips are good value and very much cheaper than booking through your tour rep
 

August - (Best Time to Visit Corfu)

Sylvia C

Again a great time to visit if you like hot, hot, hot and busy, busy , busy. This is the month all the italians come to Corfu so it is mega busy. Not my favourite time.

September - (Best Time to Visit Corfu)

Sylvia C

We have been there with terrific thunderstorms, floods etc and also been there when the weather has been fantastic. It's pot luck as to when the 'rains' start. Its this that makes the island so green so we have to accept it

October - (Best Time to Visit Corfu)

Sylvia C

October means that places are begining to close down. The weather is quite unpredictable, but can be very nice. It is a very laid back time to be there, I like it it is though a sad time because for most it will be six months before the chance of a return. I have been there in January, last year, and it snowed that was wonderful!!!! February when it was cold but very bright, March this year when the weather was wonderful. Easter about 5 years ago, which was April and was totally amazing. The only months I have not visited so far are Nov and Dec. so out of the 10 months I have been there I have to say Corfu is a truly magical place and seems to attract many of the same people back year after year. So find your own special area in Corfu and your own favourite month (if you can) or like me enjoy all the differing things that Corfu has to offer each month.

Arillas - (Resorts on Corfu)

Sylvia C

I have never actually stayed in Arrillas, but love to visit at least once while on holiday, it really is a beautiful place.

Airtours (MyTravel) - (Tour Operators on Corfu)

Sylvia C          1/10

Do not really like to book through operators, prefer flight only - always use www.xl.com - good value flight and book my own place to stay. Try it

Kassiopi Star - (Restaurants in Kassiopi)

Sylvia C          10/10

Although we do not stay in Kassiopi we do like to visit and have found the Kassiopi Star to be excellant and normally visit at least once every holiday.

Poca Loca - (Restaurants in Kassiopi)

Sylvia C          10/10

If you like mexician food, you will love this venue. Have spent many a great evening enjoying excellant food, service and atmosphere. Give it a try

Sailors - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Sylvia C          10/10

Sailors is a great place to visit. I went there the week before last and food the food,atmosphere and home made red wine wonderful,  Spiros, well what can I say a great host. Will be going again next year!!!!! I had a Garlic bread starter, sofito and a wonderful dessert of pastry filled with banana and strawberries served with ice cream mmmmmmmmmmm!
