Add your comment does any one have an email for loxcides Thanks x
What a dump, definately the worse holiday I have ever experienced. Dirty beaches, stray dogs and cats, rats. Noisey, you can here someone fart in an apartment 2 doors away. Beds incomfortable. Sidari main street is just full of tat shops and bars all with TV screens, if you want to get away from the tv its no use going there. The food and wine served in the tavernas is not exactly good quality.
i've just come back from corfu last weekend and have a lot i want to say about the place i stayed at: loxides. deffinately a nice and picturesque hotel, nice, and quite clean pool and pool area, with a decent bar next to it, but the first down starts just there: prices in the bar! the whole sidari seem to have aggreed that a pint of mythos or a boutled mythos or amstel is 2 euro a pint. in the bar by the pool: 3 euro! come on get real the is a bar just on the other side of the street!!!!!!!!
we have been going to loxides for 4 years now,back there monday 18th august,wouldnt stay anywhere else in sidari, clean,friendly and across the road from the beach..beds are twin beds at least in the rooms we have had, all air conditioned though, top restaurants are mythos,and olympic,although all are good that we have been to,but these 2 are our favorites,beach is nice,though we spend more time round pool,hope this is helpful,enjoy the loxides,,,,we do
Hello all. I am off to the loxides apartments on 1st september. Naturally i have a few questions. I have booked this holiday based on its excellent location and mostly positive reviews. Most holiday websites quote that the apartments are 50m from the beach. Is this the main beach in Sidari? Is the beach good based on a 1 - 5 scale, 5 being excellent, 1 being poor and why? Also do the rooms offer air conditioning as i forgot to research this when booking Do the apartments offer double beds as i know from previous greek holidays they are rarely provided.
Yanni and Richele are at the apartments but not in the bar. Only generally managing things. I was here with 3 pals and we had a great time. We thought the krankies would come but we didnt see them.
hello everyone just to let you know that this is a great and top place to stay and within walking distance of all the bars and shops in sidari and only fifty metres from the sandy beach. Also let it be known that the famous krankies often visit the bar area for a wee drink or two FAN DABI DOZI
I Loved Every Minute Of Being Here.My Self And My Husband Trevor Could Leave The Kids And Know The Would Be Safe.
Just back from a great break at Loxides . Everything here is top notch. Great pool and surroundings late bar and just accross the road from the beach. Everyone made sure things went as well as could be and the appearance of the krankies now and again made it a real laugh.They even organised some pool sports for kids and adults alike even though little janette was out of her depth in the shallow end....hilarious . Will definately be back.
Ellis HereCant Wait to go to Corfu This Cant Wait To See Every One xx
Well This Hotel Is Great ,The Bar Sells Lovely Drinks At Low Prices Although The Barman Wasnt Great We Still Had A Lovely Time There. I Read A Comment Saying They Met The Krankies During Their Stay,As Did I But I Sadly Didnt Meet The Man Who Wrote The Comment.The Krankies Where Great The Interact With Every One And They Are Great Fun To Be With!But Yes Sadly The Dont Dress Up Like The Did In The Earlier Years.

27 October 2007
Arrived back from sidari August 13 2007 had a brilliant time, the room was very clean which is no surprise top marks as usual.
If you read my last 4 posts you will see how much we enjoy going to the Loxides.
We arrived back this morning
Our last week we booked as many late night trips and stayed in Sidari centre as much as we could, because the bar was so quite, Ami is a lovely girl and Nicos is trying to improve but you have to work at it you cannot leave a dirty bar counter so that when you sit down all dressed up to go out you don't get covered in a sticky mess that has been there god knows how long. I used to have a coffee most mornings until Ami overfilled the cup and wiped of the excess coffee off the cup with the dirtiest sponge I have ever seen. We refused to eat a single meal in the bar because of poor hygiene.
The Loxides itself was as good as ever, very clean and tidy rooms and we did enjoy our stay, but the problem with the bar must be sorted before we ever return.
When we first arrived we paid 3euros for our favourite drinks which was expensive compared to the rest of Sidari and Nicos excuse that he only uses branded alcohol was a weak excuse because where ever we went we were given the same brand of red vodka as he used, the to cap it all the price went up to 3.50 euro.
Yanni, Richelle, Costa and Peter worked so hard to make the Loxides a family run and fun place to stay, I hope they get it back that way.
just arrived home from the loxides had a great time a part from the bar having music blasting away till 4 in the morning for 3 nights mickey tried to sort it but with little joy this was not on as i have a thirteen year old did anyone else have the same problem
.... as usual the apartments were to a good standard and the cleaners did a good job.
the pool area and grounds were kept nice and clean.
the bar in the day was boring and the barmaid mostly was on her own, tired and stressed as for the
food it was awful the service was slow and the kitchen looked dirty and untidy, in the past when richele ran the bar and kitchen in the day time it was spotless and she was forever cleaning also her food was fantastic and well priced, she was always friendly and weloming to guests.
as for the bar at night it was a none event really totally mind numbing almost slipped into a coma, nicos the new bar man has as much get up and go as a corspe, the drinks were over priced and glasses grubby, also no pool table in the bar, very odd, when yanni used to run the bar it was non-stop fun, laughter and entertainment for me and my family he made our holiday complete which is why we return year after year, but after this years change we would not return unless richele and yanni were back running the bar, they are good people and we missed them.
from michelle, carol and mick
Yianni now manages only the apartments, and Richelle works in The Smugglers Inn as a cook.
She covers for Yianni if he has to leave the complex.
Nicos, a relative of the owner, runs the bar, helped by Amy.
-A big change, and not for the better, I'm afraid.
I HAVE RANG OLYMPIC HOLIDAYS ABOUT THE BAR AND ALL I GOT WAS A MOUTHFUL, IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM AND THERE HAS BEEN NO COMPLAINTS TO THEM I WILL JUST HAVE TO FIND OUT MYSELF SOON .
Have been in contact with Richele and yes i'm afraid it is true, we have been going to the Loxides for many years, and to find out just before we go again that the bar area has been sub-let is disguting.
in the past you will have seen my comments here praising loxides for its excellent accomodation, outstanding cleanliness family orientated facilities and most of an entertaining time in the bar. unfortunately not this time. yes the accomodation is excellent, yes the cleanliness is outstanding, but family orientation and and enterainment seem to have gone out of the window. the bar has been let out to nico in cut backs by the owners. if they think they are saving money then they are in for a shock the losses have already started even though the prices have doubled and it isnt even the hieght of the season yet. last year richelle would be in the bar during the day cooking cleaning and chatting with the guests, old and new, that is if you could get her to stand still for even a minute as she was forever on the go cooking cleaning serving, then in the evening yannie would take over and the bar would fill to burst as he told jokes played gags set up games ect and kept us in the bar til 4 in the morning or until laughter forced us out, the bar was the soul of the complex and yannie and richelle the heart. the bar is now unclean overpriced with no personality or entertainment we were lucky if any one other than ourselves went in, which we promptly stopped doing and found elsewhere to go. this was doubly hard for me as i suffer from social aggrophobia and have difficulty in new surroundings. due to this we and all the other regulars have all said WE WILL NOT BE RETURNING AGAIN. usually we would go 2-3 times a year but i have put our plans on hold, and said that next year we will go some where else entirely different. its a shame i so looked forward to seeing the guys at loxides and meeting all the folk we have met on previous holidays it was like home from home without the hard work, and with fun and sun thrown in as a bonus.
