FABULOUS TWO WEEKS AT THE ANDROMEDA HOTEL

"We just returned from two amazing weeks in the Andromeda hotel in Peroulades-Sidari. This was our first time in Corfu and it was unforgettable. We booked Andromeda after reading the other reviews as we have 3 small children and many of the revies said it was child friendly and safe. THEY DIDNT LIE !!
From the moment that we arrived all the staffmade us feel like friends.Our kids loved the place and Billy the owner . There was plenty to keep the children entertained-small swing park,separate childrens pool,the ducks,a beautiful dog,and the cute tortoises.
The hotel itself was in an ideal location set back from the road. there is a mini-market and a gift shop on site that is open all day.Receptionis open24 hours so there is always someone there if they are needed and nothing is too much trouble for them.
We had a duplex apartment which we were surprised to find had two bathrooms. Great for getting all the kids ready.All the rooms in the apartment were bright ,spacious,well appointed,kitchen even included microwave and a toaster.There is also greek tv and air conditioning for FREE which is a bonus when the weather is too hot. There is also a safety deposit box which is also free of charge. Rooms were cleaned every day by the two lovely cleaners Maria and Hara. As you can see in pictures of the hotel the pool is fab ulous and is surrounded by lovely garden areas and there are plenty of beds and umbrellas for everyone and as it is behind the hotel it is private and safe especially for the kids.
Mario and George -the 2 funny barmen- made great slush puppies which the kids loved.
Mama"s food was EXCELLENT ,you have to taste The mousaka and her sofrito. DELICIOUS !! Papa's bbq was one of the highlights of the holiday. It was brilliant night with greek dancers ,,fantastic atmosphere great fun and plenty of fabulous food. My husband loved being asked to help papa with the food.
Not only the hotel was perfect , the village of peraladas is beautiful. Sunset beach is stunning,and cape drastis has to be one of the most picturesque places we have ever visited. We are so glad we choose to visit Corfu.
All in all we had a fantastic holiday.Thank you Billy for making our holiday so special. We look forward to seeing you again . "

"We just returned back from holiday in hotel "ANDROMEDA" which we have now renamed "PARADISE". From start to finish we felt like family. Our holiday started on a sour note when our flight was delayed and then on arriving in Corfu we got lost on the road to Sidari however......we then phoned to the owner of the hotel for directions-billy (the owner) immediately set us on the right road and even offered to meet us and bring us to the hotel. From the moment on our arrival was the best ever.
we arrived at Andromeda to be greeted by a smiling billy with a drink. Things just kept getting better. Billy took us to our room and we couldn't believe our luck.it was beautiful,bright,spacious and very clean !!!! it had everything we could possibly need even down to toiletries, hair dryer and shower cap !!!!!! woohoo
we were delighted to find not only the usual kitchen equipment but a toaster and a microwave provided as standard not only this but safe deposit box and air conditioning were also FREE !!!!!!!!!
we overlooked the magnificent pool which was always clean and well maintained and even managed to tempt me in -i don't do pools because of big hair !! there was also no need to be up at the crack of dawn to put towels on the beds as there were plenty of them.more than enough to go round.
what we can say about the food - mama always freely prepared and cooked the food to order. Everything that we ate we thoroughly enjoyed and was great value for money.
it was also the ideal location as we were near enough to sidari to have all the fun but far enough away to have peace and relaxation and would be perfect for children as it is safe and child friendly.
we met lots of lovely people who have been coming here for years-we can see why !! we will be joining them. !!
thank you to billy and his family. We had a wonderful time and we will certainly see you next year !!

T I P !!!!!! ANDROMEDA accepts ONLY direct bookings-cannot be found in any travel agents !! so contact Billy at the Andromeda. You can also find Andromeda on: Facebook.com/corfuandromeda"

"We have been twice now to the wonderful Andromeda Hotel in Perulades! Once with my 25 year old son and my husband, and again last year our two selves. We all had a fabulous time, so quiet and peaceful, clean, spotless in fact, sometimes a rarity in Corfu. We delighted in the effort that Billy and his team made to ensure that all his guests we well catered for in every sense of the word. Very clean accomodation, maid service daily, extra pillows, blankets, anything we requested we got, nothing was too much trouble for Billy! The pool was great, cleaned every morning, and I had a swim around 8am, just to start the day, fabulous, had a few snacks and drinks and exchanged books{great selection} all in all a great choice for a great + magical holiday! We are trying to make it again this year, if we get flights to suit! Thanks again Billy+ staff xxx

"What can I say - Brilliant.... My wife and I had our first holiday to Corfu, We stayed at the Andromeda with Billy and the guys who really made our holiday. Excellent entertainment, good standard of accomodation, wicked Pool with a great mountain backdrop.

Only one thing we went in to Sidari town for 1 night out and came back to the hotel to being sick as dogs, I think the drinks in the town are watered down and made us ill.....So we ended up spending the majority of our holiday eating and drinking around the Pool at Andromeda which suited us just fine. If your looking for a holiday of fun, class and relaxation. ANDROMEDA XXXXX Billy Thanks for a great holiday we will be returning...Steve "

"I do not usually write reviews on websites but I was so shocked by the negative comments made here about the Andromeda Hotel and it's cleanliness that felt I had to comment.

My husband and I have just returned from Corfu after spending two weeks at the Andromeda. As a young couple/group we have travelled to various countries including Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Spain, Greece, France, Canada, Italy, Holland etc and we have stayed in 2 to 5 star Hotels! I know when a hotel is good or not so trust me - the Andromeda is an extremely clean and well looked after hotel set within gorgeous grounds. It is a truely amazing hotel for the price. If you have booked this holiday or are thinking of booking it, please, do not be put off by the negative remarks.

Our room was spacious, modern and clean! The house keeping staff were fantastic and cleaned the room every day! Our rooms certainly did not smell and I did not see a hint of mould as stated in another review. Our room was immactulate. The pool area was also cleaned daily to a very high standard. The entire hotel was spotless.

The hotel snack bar was of a high standard. It served the usual snack foods (burgers, baguettes, homemade pizza, chips etc), daily specials (greek traditional foods). Everything was cooked fresh and tasted great. We had no complaints at all.

The bar was stocked with everything you could possibly want. The bar staff were friendly and went of their way to make you feel welcome. If you like staying up late they will keep the bar opened for you even if it is past their finishing time, as we were told 'it's your holiday'. By the time you leave the bar staff are like old friends and you will definitely keep in touch with them. If you don't it probably says more about you than them.

The main resort centre is about a twenty minute walk away. There are two main walking routes to Sidari. One route is not well lit. The other however is lit the entire way and is a nice walk at night after a meal. If those who commented in a negative way had actualy spoke with the locals they would have known about this other route. Taxi's are also readily available and cost 5 euros to the resort centre from the hotel and vice versa. When out having meals in various restaurants my husband and I were offered lifts home by the restaurant staff for nothing in return. The Greek people are so friendly, something that is so refreshing. They go out of their way to make sure you are safe and get home ok which they do not have to do and when they do, they do not expect anything in return. They are even offended when you offer.

The Andromeda hotel manager Billy is such a genuine, honest, funny, friendly guy. Nothing is too much trouble for him or his staff. Anything you need or want he will get for you but in my opinion there wouldn't/shouldn't be anything more that you could want....

All in all I would recommend the Andromeda to families, couples and groups of young and old. I did not hear one complaint during my two week stay oher than 'do we have to go home?' Everyone I spoke with during my stay had a fantastic holiday. A few of the guests were returning guest from holidays past. My husband and I had a fantastic time and will definitely return. LOVED every minute of it!!!!"

"also visited 18/10/10 worst appartments ever all the reviews said wonderful and Billy was a great host NOT.
Damp rooms showers spewed water every where spent most of the time mopping water up. wakened up cold as the bedding got damp through the night steps to the appartment very slippy when wet. run the gauntlet walking into sidari used the taxi once they were dodgy.
basic eqiupment in apartment dangerous light fittings in bathroom. In our mind as long as billy was centre of atention he was quite happy and you were better thought of if you ate and drank on his premises which we didnt and if we could have afforeded it we wouldhave moved also
so I dont now how all the reviews are great when everyone we spoke to that week hated it and were glad to get home even that was a dissaster delayed for hours put up in hotel eventually ferried to greek mainland 5 hour bus journey to thessalonka then a four hour flight home so dont book it "

A Wonderful Holiday at The Andromeda Hotel

"My husband, childrent and I have just returned back after a weeks holiday at the Andromeda Hotel, Corfu. On arrival to the island on our transfer the rep was dropping people off all over the place and places that looked like hovels, at our stop (Andromeda) we were presently surprised. The hotel was in a lovely location, very tastefully decorated/designed, we were greeted by the owner Billy whom was charming and extremely welcoming.

We were advised that the hotel would be 3 Star in my opinion the Hotel was 5 Star. The room was spacious, clean, the views over the pool were great and the backdrop over the mountains was spectacular. The cleaners were lovely, through and did an excellent job of our room especially with my messy kids, LOL.

My children had a great holiday and we found the area to be very safe. One thing I would say about the accomodation would be that the staff at the Andromeda really did care about its guests, and they made sure from their evening entertainments that all guests were looked after and that everyone made friends with each other, this we found something to be different, unique and speacial relaly making our holiday.

At the start of our holiday we had a few guests who started complaining about absolutely everything, demanding to be moved from room to room, basically being incredably rude to staff/reps and spreading negativity around all guests (happy guests). My family and other guests were annoyed by these peoples behaviour.

This hotel is not in the party street of Sidari, as per Thomas Cook Brochure states. It is in a quiet, relaxed, quiet location, away from chavs, if you want to have non-stop noise then dont stay here.

On the last night of our holiday, the owner Billy, put on a free BBQ for all guests, it also had a quiz and a farewell music party. We found the owner to be the life and soul of the party, he took the time to talk to us, and really ensured we had a good holiday.

Thank you to all ANDROMEDA Staff, you made our holiday, we will be back next year.

Harris Family XXXXX"

"we looked at these reviews and thought we would love a holiday there and with such great reviews at a brilliant price we booked for 18/10/10 with thomas cook. When we arrived the hotel looked pretty, but there was a lady complaining about her room been dirty and full of insects, the manager billy was very rude to her. Our room was discusting full of damp, rusty fittings, mouldy shower and balcony curtains, worst of all was the smell i cannot describe how discusting this was, there was like a layer of grease on the floor and it stunk, you had to keep your shoes on. Needless to say we couldnt unpack due to the damp and smell.13 of the people that arrived on 18/10 had to pay to move accomodation and alot more were unhappy but couldnt afford to pay to move, i didnt speak to anyone who was happy there.The location? you need a taxi to go to the town as it is very dangerous to walk on country deserted roads,forestry most of the way and some empty unoccupied,shabby buildings, anything could happen and its at least 40 mins for fit 30 year olds. I will add photos."

"Me and my partner have just returned from the Hotel Andromeda, Sidari, Corfu. The weather was a little dodgy as you can imagine going away in October, but what made our holiday was the romantic quiet location of the hotel, not far from Sunset Beach and Cape Drastis which are amazing. The Owner Billy was very very entertaining, he made us feel very welcome and made our evenings full of fun and entertainment. Alex the Barman was also excellent, with his jokes and gages and made all feel welcome. We shall be returning to The Andromeda next year for sure. Very reasonable prices and great for someone looking for a chill time to relax..... thanx d & C "

"here's a honest review. initally on arrival, in our apartment, as we are non smokers we found the over powering cigarette smell awful!( not enough to spoil the holiday) but with plenty of fresh air this soon wasnt such a negative point. Billy was very helpful and seen to all out requests, as there will be things that is not standard in the room, but asking for them is no problem, e.g. a kettle, extra pillows, pot. yes, the hotel is a walk from sidari but this is clear on the info given before we set off, but we didn't find the walk into town too bad, it's all on the flat, a plesant, 30 - 40 min walk. when we were there, the hotel was very quiet, full, i think, but with adults, just what we were looking for, if you are looking for a wild, party all the time kind of holiday, you will be heading to the wrong place!! it was perfect for us!! as you turn out the the hotel go to your left and the first establishment you come to is a family run restaurant, in the inside of the restaurant is non smoking, but the added bonus was the food was greek and scummy!!! the food at the hotel food was good, but smoking is allowed in the eating area, which really did put us off.
we had a wonderful time, weather was great, and we came home well chilled.it seemed to be a couple that maintained the rooms on a daily basis, certainly no complaints from us regarding their work rate, they were on the go all day!! alway with a smile and a welcoming "hello". the whole team is a credit to billy, as im sure he is very much aware!! many thanks from us xx"

"Hey there, just a little message to say how brilliant the Andromeda is!!
Since my partner and i got together 5 years ago, this was our very first holiday and have been going back ever since, we go straight to thomas cook and tell them when and where and never go anywhere else!

Billy is amazing! Billy is like my Greek dad, he always looks after me, we got a little bit stuck for money one year as my partners bank card got swallowed and billy lent us some money until i got paid from work!

Everyone is great, Billy is even helping me plan my wedding for June 2011 in corfu!

The man is a legend!!
Hotel set away from noise and roadside (unlike many others!!)
yes it may be a little bit more pricey than some places for food and drink, but there is always something going on!
If you dont like it, dont rant and dont go back, simple!!

I wouldnt have it any other way!!
Love You Billy, see you very shortly (27th sept)
