I've just come back from a week long stay at the joylife apartments....was so sad to come homeCry

Me and my mum traveled there on our own and it was the first time i have been on holiday without my family. The staff could not have been more welcoming and our apartment was lovely. We were near the pool but our balcony faced away from the main hotel so we had lots of privacy. The  only complaint me and my mum could make about the apartments was that sheets and towels were not changed, but i dear say if we repeatedly asked the sheets would be chagned.
The pool was lovely and over 7 feet deep and the shallower pool was perfect for smaller children. I cannot make a reveiw without making a comment about the food which was deliciousand cheap !! Its more the staff at the hotel that make the holiday, they were charming i would definatly go back

Just got back from 2 weeks in lovely sidari and we had a great time. We had a studio overlooking the pool but it was so dirty and smelt because we were situated above the toilets! Hardly ever saw the maid and beds and towels were only changed once. It was absolutly boiling hot in there as well, we didnt know that you could pay for air conditioning until the last day of our holiday!

Dont let that put you off though, the pools were the best, lovely and quiet to relax around in the day and the bar is great. The foods nice and pretty cheap as well so we ate in there alot. The greek night on which is on every wed night was good. Didnt get much food for the amount you pay though. The bar staff are so friendly and will do anything for you
There is a supermarket a 5 min walk out and to your left (they dont sell papers so its a further 15 min if you want to catch up on the news). The town centre is about a 25 min stroll which is excrutiating in the heat of the day but nice in the evening as the suns going down. Watch out for the traffic - the roads a deathtrap in some places. Taxis speed up and down and there is no path to walk on!
For the canal damour take a left at the 3 little pigs and cross over the river (absolutly stinks so hold your nose) For sidari town keep going straight down - you pass the main beach on the way.
We will be going back to sidari in the future. Would like to st ay somewhere closer to the resort though. Definatly be going back to see yannis and the guys at joylife

We visited Joylife in Auguest 2005. We had a brilliant time in sidari with lots to do day and night.

The apartments are about 25 mins walk to centre and besch. This could be a pain especially in the heat! If we were to visit Sidari again i would certainly look for a more central location!!
The pool and pool bar were fine and staff were pleasent. However again a larger pool would be better. The apartements could do with a good clean. Our apartment was spacious and over looked the pool, however it was dirty and the cleaning service provided was wll below expectations.
We met some great people but i must say there were alot of LOUD english people round the pool which made it hard to relax at times.
My recommendations would be to find a hotel closer to the beach and esort centre. Also i think a week is long enough as there are only a hand full of nice places to eat and drink.
It was great for our first holiday but we hope to move onwards and upwards!!

The one bedroom apartment which we had was really big with two sofas in the living area along with the usual kitchen appliances. The bathroom is a good size with a shower. The bedroom had two single beds, dressing table, wardrobe and two bedside cabinets. Probably one of the biggest rooms i've ever had in a greek apartment. The only bad thing about the room we were in was that the air con was only in the living area, not to good at night.

In the one bedded apartment we had and my parents there where two sofa beds in the kitchen we found them very spacious but just depends which apartment you get

Hi im pam and i went to sidari this time last year(aug-sept 04) for a week with my two friends.  we had an absolutley brilliant time!!! we originally thought that the apartments were lovely but too far away from the centre and the clubs...However... it turned out that that was the best thing as we got the peace and quiet in the day to sunbathe and then the great nightlife in the evening!!!

The apartment was basic but fine and the pool was lovely!! Makis the waiter was fab and the crocodile he made me was great!!! i even hurt myself on holiday (i had torn my ligaments when i was drunk) and he was kind enough to bring me a cocktail to my balcony because i couldnt walk!!!
Overall we were very happy with the holiday and would definately go back again!!!!

I have just returned from a 2 week stay at the joylife and had a fantastic time! The rooms were basic but clean. The staff and owners were very friendly esp Yanni who made our stay extremely enjoyable. The pool bar has a good variety of snacks reasonably priced. The pool is clean and there are plently of sunbeds. The joylife is quiet enough during the day to relax and we had no problems with noise on an evening. There is a supermarket less than a 5 min walk away which u will find everything you need without having to walk into the main resort. We didnt find the walk in to the town a particular problem as long as you are aware of the traffic, it is about 25 mins into the resort center and a torch is useful for the walk back to the apartments at night. I hope everyone who goes to the Joylife has a fantastic time like we did!

I was surprised to last the last comments on Joylife as I've stayed there many times over the years - last time being June 2004. As Shaun's recent update photos show Joylife has been extended, new apartments built, has a lovely pool area and a gorgeous bar and dining area. I find the location fine - although I must admit I preferred the view of fields opposite instead of the large hotel, but the tourist industry and companies must take responsibility for that. The walk into Sidari takes about 20 mins but there is an easy alternative of ringing for taxis which come almost immediately and cost about 5 euros.

As regards cleanliness, I can only assume that Andy and Jo were very unlucky as I have always found that towels and bedding were changed as in any other accommodation in Sidari, toilets certainly cleaned every day and I have never seen mildew on the walls.
I don't consider myself to be narrow minded or wanting to sit in "little micro-Britain" - in fact I've learnt Greek so I can talk with my friends in Sidari/Avliotes/San Stefanos and like to spend as much time as I can comparing lifestyles and learning about a different culture.  As for sitting around the pool - I feel that people have saved all year and are entitled to spend their holiday as they wish!
I hope everyone who has booked for Joylife enjoys it as much as I always have and I look forward to see the owners (Zoe, Kostas and Spiros) in 6 weeks.  Smile

Having stayed at Joylife, I can't stand the drivel some people put on this website.

The location was poor. No wonder Kosmar won't put it on a map. The only 'interesting' thing about the walk into town was the dead dog smell half way there, and it really was dead. And smelly.

Cleaning. Or lack of it. Towels only changed once. I mean, they MADE the beds a couple of times, but that doesn't make you feel like they've mopped the floors, cleaned the toilets, scraped the mildew off the walls or maybe even swept. Cos they didn't. Ever.

Other than that, it's OK. If you want to be narrow minded and sit round a pool all day. And sit in your own little micro-Britain, tis fine.
Don't let us put you off Sidari, however, because the centre is lovely and we shall be back!


Check my site out for pics of Joyife have stayed and really enjoyed
