Best hotel in Sidari
"I have stayed at Aphrodite for the last 7 years and I go back there every year because it it without doubt one if the best places I have ever stayed in. The staff are so attentive and friendly and the location is second to none. The rooms are clean and most of them have a sea view which is superb. I would recommend it to anyone. Susan McCormack."

The best Sidari has to offer!
"My husband and I visited Corfu in July of 2009, and we stumbled upon one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at for such a reasonable price. Upon entering, Erica greeted us with a warm smile. When we first booked this hotel, I had sent Erica numerous emails. In each correspondence, she responded promptly and with warmth. She answered my questions and gave us lots of tips of where to go and what to see when in Corfu. Apart from the plethora of information she gave us, we were extremely pleased when we saw the hotel. The room was clean with a balcony and had a nice view of the sea. Since it is very hot in July, we spent little time in our room, but at night we slept very comfortably with the AC. Also, even though it is right in town, the noise level at night was almost non-existant. The breakfast that was included was delicious, and the best part of this hotel is that, because it is family run, details are important. I asked for eggs to be added to my continental breakfast, and they were added with minimal cost but with a big smile. We also had the opportunity to meet EricaÂ´s mom and husband while we were there. Though we did not know Erica before we went, she made us feel so welcome. So, to sum up, if you go to Corfu, STAY AT THIS HOTEL! The rooms are clean with nice views, the access to the town is right at your doorstep, and the best part is the service. Erica and her staff are amazing. The only negative part to this review is that we are now in California, and we wish we could be in Corfu at the Akti Aphrodite enjoying a glass of wine and a gyros, and saying OPA!!!!
Thank you Erica and staff. Hope to see you in the future!
Kim and Hugo"

"I am a returnee x 5 to the hotel and i am returning in 2009. The staff make you feel welcome at all times and nothing seems too much trouble. I feel so safe and content and the hotel is clean and well maintained. It is situated just in the right position for all amenities, could'nt ask for more. I was ill on my holiday and they did their utmost to help me and get all the help i needed "Thankyou Erika and all the staff". I recommend this hotel to everyone who wants a carefree holiday. "

"We have just arrived back from sidari and all i can say is thankyou Erika you saved our holiday! The hotel we were originally booked in by our travel agents wasn't very nice and we would of had a terrible holiday until we moved to the hotel akti aphrodite. What a fantastic place, the staff can`t do enough for you, we were made to feel like part of there family. The rooms are spotlessly clean, and the hotel is right on the beach front. we were sad to leave,but we will definately be going back! Thankyou to you all."

"I have just returned from my first holiday to Sidari... There is only one word that can describe the Atki Aphrodite.... Fabulous!!! The moment I walked in, I was welcomed with open arms... and a huge smile :) I went with my friend Katie, her 15 year old daughter and her pal. The Reception ladies are lovely... Erica and Lesley can't do enough for you. Yiannis and Holly who work on the bar in the evening are two of the nicest people I have ever met, and Yiannis makes cracking coctails... Frozen Strawberry Dacquiri, made just how you like it....
The rooms are bright and clean, with free air conditioning, Television AND a fridge!! The rooms are cleaned to a high standard daily... One day I slept in till 2pm, and certainly didnt expect my room to be cleaned, but on return to my room, it was spotless. The pool is right on the beach, with sun loungers, umbrella's, and a wicked pool bar serving lovely snacks throughout the day.. I'd recommend the chicken club sandwich... yummy...
Sidari itself is full of fun, fluffy people, always ready with a smile... suitable for singletons, families, couples and groups. The Garden Bar at "ICE" is a lovely venue... expect real friendly, cheeky banter from the barmen! Most of my evenings were spent in the "Eye Q Bar" sampling their excellent coctails served by the cutest barman.
I made true friends while staying at this hotel, both staff and guests alike and was touched when everyone came outside to wave us goodbye. I was so sorry to leave, but have already booked a room ready for next year :) A truly excellent holiday, with great weather, excellent service and lovely people!!!"

"This is our 3rd year at aphrodite and we absolutely love it, we hate it when we have to come home! We love all the staff especially Holly and Yannis.
The hotel is situated in a perfect place and you could really ask for a better place to stay.

"This is our second year here, we have already booked for next year, the hotel is clean and the food is excellent!
You can get up off your sun lounger and you're right next to the beach! what more could you wish for ?
The staff are the best,from the friendly cleaners to the fab bar staff, they made our holiday, it was like leaving your best friend behind when we left
Erica and Lesley were helpful when we needed anything during the day. They sorted out our taxi transfers even though we had an 11hr delay at manchester !!
Hotel is across the road from the shops,especially the pharmacy which we did use a lot!! There are lots of bars and places to eat out,Sidari is a great family resort!! "

"Stayed at both hotel and apartments over the years but we have found the rooms are getting a bit shabby. The indoor bar is very nice, too many staff during the day when one of them could be helping out at the pool bar as it gets busy after 12 o'clock.
All the staff are really friendly and you can have a laugh with them except one girl who seems to want to stop everyone enjoying themselves. All we heard is you can't do this and can't do that. She only seems to be interested in money. She tells the staff off all the time for petty things.
We will not be going back there again, and we are not the only ones, a few holiday makers have said the same thing, she is ruining the place.
Legends here we come."

"This hotel is great, very very clean hotel with great friendly staff that could do enough for you.
The hotel is in a good location straight onto the beach, also in very easy reach are shops bars restaurants and pharmacy.
All in all its a great place to go. The prices to stay in this hotel are good. Erica the owner and Lesley the receptionist are very help full, they can arrange for transport to pick you up from the airport and take you back on your return.
The air con and safety deposit box was included in the price, also there is a small fridge in the rooms. The food is very good you can pay one euro to upgrade from continental breakfast to a full English."
