Allocation on arrival
"Took a gamble and tried Allocation on arrival through Monarch/Cosmos, ended up in Sidari, at The Lagoon Apartments , with the lovely Amy who worked long hours 7 days a week, and still had a smile for you any time you went to reception. Nice apartment way above our expectations as we booked 2*, and really this was way above that, bedroom with balcony, separate bathroom with shower over the bath (very good supply of hot water) Kitchen with fridge, table and chairs, small oven and 2 rings, toaster and kettle, took own small saucepan to boil eggs for breakfast. Wonderful breakfast if you wanted it in the bar, also lots of other meals, any time of the day. Good pool with small pool for little ones. Only took 1 min to walk onto the beach, with lots of tavernas and water sports,another minute turning right to the wonderful canal caves and beach. Walked to Sunset Beach through the old village, took about 1 hour, stopping on the way at a wonderful cafe in the old village for a drink, and then on the way back at a taverna Greek style, as we all want, not Sunday British Lunch as on the main strip in Sidari. Still some wonderful places to eat Greek food with all the charm Greece has to offer. Only a very small moan was we got bitten by mosquitoes as I did and everyone else by the look of their legs!!! Plaster yourself in Marmite!! Everyone at the Lagoon were so nice and helpful, would like to recommend it, very clean, lovely pool, quiet location, just turn left for peace and quiet, turn right for The strip, a lot more going on. All in all, lots for everyone no matter what age, as very flat around the resort. You can be as quiet as you want if you turn left on the main road, or turn right and it is a lot more lively."

I want to go back!!
"All I can say is, I was so sad to leave. 2 weeks was not long enough! There was me, my husband and my 18 month old. She had the time of her life. The pool area was cleaned every single evening without fail, so I never had any worries about my daughter walking around bare footed. Food at the bar was amazing! Big breakfast just 3 euros. Amazing! Location is perfect. The staff, Alex and Dennis.. I miss them already. They made us feel so at home, so polite and extremely helpful and generous. There will be no negative points that will put me off going again. I loved it so much. The room was exactly what you paid for. Some people are just extremely fussy when it comes to the rooms. You don't go on holiday to spend loads of time in your room anyway. Definately highly reccomend Lagoon. I wonder if the snowball on the bingo has been won yet LOL....."

Ticks all the boxes
"I score this hotel full marks based on the realisation that this is a budget package holiday hotel. If you do not expect certain features of more expensive and luxury hotels the the Lagoon ticks all the boxes. Spartan but adequate room, very clean, nice balcony overlooking pool (not all rooms do). The pool and its surrounds are immaculate and well maintained. The bar has a very pleasant ambience during the day and has all the usual types of entertainment in the evenings. The staff all seemed like they were happy in their work and were good company. The location cannot be bettered in Sidari for its nearness to everything without being in the heart of it. Would recommend this hotel without hesitation"

"My wife, myself and our two kids booked the Lagoon at the last minute after our original holiday evaporated along with Gold Trail Travel. First impressions were very good, pool and bar area are spotless as was the room. Air conditioning was a bit of a con if you have a two bedroom apartment as you have to pay 7 Euros for each air conditioning unit and 14 Euros a day seems excessive. Food was really very good and very well priced, the staff were all helpful and friendly. There is a good size pool and plenty of sun loungers with shades, the early morning towel squad reserve a few of them but there are plenty to go round. Also available is a good selection of books guests have left behind that can be borrowed from reception if you have used up your reading material. If you have children try and get a room away from the bar area, the music can be quite loud in the evening. All in all we had a great holiday and would go back again. "

"Went to the lagoon from the 24th august 2009 for 1 week.myelf and my 2 daughters,The staff who worked there were just great very helpfull ,Denis and alex who worked in the bar made you feel very welcome..And made my 2 girls laugh there head off.As the lagoon is just off the main road,traffic noise was ok.The only noise we heard was people going back to there room after a night out,which is not a problem. The only thing i can say is take your own loo roll cos you only get 1. The beach is just 2 mins away but most times i stayed by the pool. As for the resturants many did special offers which were good if your on a tight budget.The only place we ate and didnt enjoy was Sea breeze which me and daughter got a upset tummy and many ofter people did [which i found out later] and 3 little pigs the food was burnt.But the rest of the places were great. So all i can say is we had a great holiday there and it was our first time to corfu as well.so we have decided to back again august 2010."

Nice and Easy
"Just came back from Sidari after staying at the Lagoon Hotel. Staff: Alex and Denis were very helpful and friendly. Rooms could do with a bit of updating and 1 toilet roll for 2 weeks was a bit tight. Pool cleanliness was excellent. Food was good and competetive. Beach and sea safe for children. Sea Monkeys, on the beach, owned by Brits with free sunbeds. Memories, Sea Breeze and the Mexican Resturant good value eating places. Fagins for great homemade food. Downside was a bad experience with Vlarious Travel, go elswhere. Agias Stephonas is another great beach. Would I go again, definatley "
