I am thinking of booking these apartments for myself (35 year old female) and my Mom (73 years old). The last time we visited Sidari was 20 years ago on a day trip whilst we were staying in another part of Corfu. My questions are;
1)Will this resort be suitable for myself and my Mom?
2) Will these apartments be suitable for me and my Mom?
3) Is the beach easily accessible from the apartments (my Mom has difficulty walking)?
4) Is it possible to email the owner directly so that I can book with them directly?
Any help would be much appreciated?
As a regular visitor to sidari these apartments are faultless.......The Manessis family are wonderful hospitable hosts and their apartments afford some wonderful views.
Having not actually stayed at the Christos (my boyfriend did with his daughter) I can only say that next time I will make sure I get my booking in early to avoid missing out. The location is perfect. Daytime, the pool and snack bar on the headland with the beach less than 10m away you couldn't ask for more. There are some fish in the sea, and if you enjoy snorkelling, it is nice to swim out and round to some of the coves further round, and of course the Canal d'Amour cave (well worth swimming through if you get chance). Nightime, it's a 5 - 10 minute walk down to the Sidari strip if you want a choice of bars and restaurants, but there are some really wonderful places to eat just a couple of minutes walk from Christos; just ask big Spiros from the pool bar, his recommendations certainly didn't disappoint and we tasted some exquisite Greek food. Between Christos, Spiros, Spiros and Laura, my son and I were made to feel really welcome down at the Christos despite not staying there. The friendly atmosphere and perfect hospitality is one that I will go back to experience as a fully fledged guest next time. Certainly would recommend to anyone wanting to be close enough to the nightlife with a perfect daytime location.
Are these apartments suitable for families and is their much to do family-wise in Sidari?
Yes, these appartments are called the Canal D'Amour Hotel and they are fantastic.
hi could anyone let me know if this apartment is also named canal d'amor hotel as i want to ensure im looking up the right place??
christos - please will you email me ? then i will have your email address , because i would like you to answer a qeury about another booking for next summer.
Another fantastic 2 weeks in sunny Corfu is over but enjoyed every minute there, these appartments are SIMPLY THE BEST, they are in the Canal D'Amour area and yards away from the beach and the best part of Sidari.
Well what can I say, absolutely wonderful holiday yet again, got a lovely big room with terrific views from the balcony and at the front door. As usual Christos and Maria were their usual lovely selves and Laura at the bar was a gem, the room pool and bar/restaurant was up to it's very high standards and big Spiros was still as friendly and as accomodating as ever, as was the little un!!!!!! thanks spiros for doing the canal d'amour village people dance with Pete, your video has gone down a storm in England !!!!!! I promise I'll bring some costumes in September 2008
Sidari absolutly made our summer! SO THANK U!
I stayed here expecting to enjoy every minute of it after reading all of the reviews. I am sorry to disagree with the other comments but for me this place was not all I was hoping for in fact not anywhere near what I was hoping for. When we first arrived it was early hours of the morning so we just needed some sleep. After waking up on the morning I found my pillow and bottom sheet to be dirty (not a great start). On 2 occasions after the sheets had been changed it seemed that the sheets they took off were cleaner than the ones they put on. I felt that you only received good service from the staff if you spent the majority of your time and money there, which we never do on any holiday because we like to get out and see what corfu has to offer both day and night. We came to Sidari last year and stayed at the Sidari Village near the main strip and I could not fault the cleanliness or staff there. The nicest people in this hotel were the maids and they can only work with the tools they are given. All in all enjoyed Sidari and Corfu but would not stay at the Christos again. All in all I am quite bewildered at the other comments.
Absolutely second to none. Christos & the many Spiros' who run the place make you feel like one of the family & nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are spotless (until we unpacked!!) & large, with everything you'd realistically need. The pool is lovely, quite deep in part but safe enough for kids to enjoy safely. If the pool is not for you, the beach is literally 20 yards away, in its own secluded cove.
Recently returned from another fantastic holiday in Sidari staying with Christos and Spiros and Spiros. We have stayed with them four times so far over the last few years and are never disappointed. The rooms are good and the company better. The location is second to none overlooking the canal d'amour. We will never tire of staying with these lovely people. Hope Daisys pups are doing ok and hope to see everyone again in September.
just returned from Christos Apartments,Canal de Amor and I loved it!!! best holiday i've ever had and will deffinately be returning!!! the apartment was gorgeous overlooking the pool and the beach with a masive balcony. 5 minutes from Sidari strip which has a wide variety of bars and resturants, if your into your night life its amazing!!! (Spiros "Diablo" rocks in Shakers bar ;-p). The Beach is literaly on your door step and there are pedellos and boats to hire out for really cheep rates. Finally the best thing about this accomodation was the staff. The three Spiro's made our time there one to remember. Clubbing with Diablo and Spiro's, the famous Red Devil cocktails, late nights at the bar playin pool, chatting about the caves (Diablo) ;-p haha Christos, the manager is amazing too! he made sure our time there was amazing and went out of his way to help us :-) and he beat me at pool :-o lol. Daisy's pups wer amazing!!! She made it feel like home bless her! so if anyone is unsure weather to go or not please GO! its a resort worth visiting! see ya next year 3 Spiro's, Christos and Daisy!!!!

I have just returned from 2 fantastic weeks at the Christos Aparts in Sidari with my husband and 2 kids age 11 years and 1 year, and it really was everything we could have wanted. We stayed in a huge 2 bed apart in block A which was great, the maid even did our washing up for us! The team there are so friendly and really can't do enough for you. The pool is a nice size and the beach is only yards away. Spiros at the pool bar is the friendliest guy I have ever met and all the staff are great. It is located just minutres from evrything you need from supermarkets, to cafes and bars to restaurants. We made friends with another family who were staying in block B and they said their rooms were nice too so I wouldnt worry too much about that cos the overall standards here are very high. This was the best holiday we have had in years and will definately go back

I would recommend anyone to book direct and Spiros will arrange taxi transfers ( 45 Euros ) much cheaper than travel agents. A big HELLO to Spiros in the Cafe / Bar we have you on video and ALEX says THANK YOU for the message you sent him, and he's hoping to see you next year maybe.
