"My fiancee and I have just returned from a two week stay at the Legends apartments in Sidari, Corfu and had the best holiday ever!
We booked through Thomas Cook, and havent got a single complaint, we also had the best Rep we've ever had in five years of traveling abroad!
The Hotel from the front dosen't look much at first but once you get round the pool and bar and into the gardens its actually very nice, the staff all speak good English and are so friendly. The rooms are basic but comfortable, in our room we had a fridge freezer, two-ring hob, kettle, and a toastie maker. the beds were two single's pushed together and a bunk bed. The rooms got cleaned every other day with a change of towels as well. we were on the ground floor and the view from our balcony wasn't brilliant but we didnt mind that too much. We stayed in room 107 and it was next to the main road so we did get some traffic noise! the pool has a deep end about 3m and is lovely and cool (the sea's warmer) however it does have two very shallow kids pools as well. the night entertainment is made all that more brilliant by DJ Rick, who is absolutely fantastic and has everybody laughing.
The resort of Sidari is a fair size, basically it is one long main strip that is literally a five minute stroll from the apartment, there are no pavements till you get onto the main strip but the locals are good at swerving! on the strip there are plenty of gift shops, bars and pubs, we ate out every night and found about three restaurants that we really liked and a small handful of pubs. The best places to eat (or that we'd recommend) are; The Tex-Mex which is upstairs over the 'Falcon Bar', the Sea Breeze just over the road (the service can sometimes be a bit slow if there busy) or a restaurant that is literlly 1 minute from the apartment in the opposite direction (cant remember the name, buts italian, on the opposite side of the road and the first one you come to, this was the best meal of our holiday). there is one Night club called Ice bar thats open till seven am and the best nights for there are Saturday and the night they hold their 'snow party' (this changes from week to week).
both myself and my fiance loved this holiday, we really didn't want to come home. one recommendation for everyone who can though is to hire a car and explore! the roads (and drivers) can be a little daunting at first but if you keep to the white line and just pull over when they come upto you and let them past your fine. We hired a car from 'Value plus' about 2 minutes from the restaurant in the opposite direction from the main strip. we got a jeep for 175 euros for five days - if you do get a car, then definatly visit these places: (not sure on some spellings) Kassiope, Corfu city centre, Paleokastrisa, and if your very daring (like us) have a drive to Kavos, thats just a few places there are others that are worth visiting but cant remember all the names, you get a map with your car and the reps will point you in the right direction.
overall both of us would highly recommend not only Sidari but the Legends apartments, we miss it already. there's something for old, young and the inbetween bit!

"Stayed here from 29th Sept to 6th Oct, apart from the flight with Thomas Cook being very dirty the rest of the holiday was very good.
Our room was in the block nearest the road and was very clean and comfortable, we did have others in our group that stayed in the rooms further away from the road and they weren't too impressed, the staff were all very friendly which can be said for just about eveyone in and around Sidari, the only problem was the weather mainly cloudy with the odd sunny day but I suppose it could be expected this time of year.
I would recommend Legends and sidari and will probably return one day."

"I'm 19 years old and I have to say iv'e been a lot of countries in my time e.g Tenirife, Ibiza, Majorca, Benidorm. And have to say the Legends Apartments in Sidari is by far the best place i've stayed and I am not just saying that I stayed there with my boyfriend and two friends we had a brilliant time there was two clubs 1 of them started at 2am i think and shut 6am it has very good nightlife not as good as Ibiza's nightlife but still brilliant. The hotel its self was very clean the staff were friendly the food was delicious i only came back last week and i stayed for ten days. Ohh how i wished i stayed for 2 weeks. It was only a 5 minite walk to the town. The beach is beutiful there are a lot of hot boys for you singlr girls ;) well i could be here forever so i just want to say Legends Apartments is the place to stay :P:D"

Best Holiday Ever
"This place is amazing there is nothing to say that is bad. We just came back and are going to book again. The pool is a lovely size and never crowded. The staff and owners couldnt do enough for you and they were very genuine people who liked to make sure you were having a great time. Dj Rick got on great with everyone and the kids loved him. MARKO was a great sport on the karaoke. We have got to go back next year as there was so much we didnt see in corfu as the kids wouldnt leave the apartments. Also the best food in sidari is in the Legends.
THE ONLY DOWNSIDE IS THAT THOMAS COOK HAS PUT THE PRICE UP THIS YEAR BY Â£800 FOR THE SAME HOLIDAY"

Clean, modern, great pool / bar area, lovely rooms!
"We stayed at Legends in July 2008 and we were so pleased when we arrived as the apartments were modern (recently refurbished), very clean, decent shower / bathroom, etc, etc. Couldn't recommend this accommodation more! Good location for beach and town. Pool and bar area were well kept and well set out. Great staff and food was nice in the bar also. Definitely recommend!"

Great base for a quiet holiday!
"Have just come back from a week in Sidari staying at the Legends apartments. The apartments are well situated at the quieter end of the main strip in Sidari and is well within walking distance of lots of restaurants, tourist shops and bars.
The rooms are a decent size with the main bedroom consisting of two twin beds and a bunk bed (not sure what this was for as there was just two of us travelling) there was a separate kitchen with fridge, microwave, two cooking rings, sink etc as well as a table and chairs. There is also a separate bathroom with shower, toilet and sink. There was also nice balcony with table and chairs. The room was cleaned every other day with fresh towels and bed sheets. The room was very basic in all, the bunk bed was annoying as it needn't have been there in a twin room and took up lots of space which could have been used for a sofa or table of chairs.
The hotel had a decent sized pool (which was freezing cold but perfect when you've been sunbathing all day and need to cool down). There are plenty of sunloungers around the pool which are free and the hotel bar is at the far end of the pool serving drinks, snacks and ice creams etc all day and it never seemed overly busy.
The staff at the hotel were very friendly and polite and couldn't do enough for you. We didnt encounter any problems but am sure that they would sort out any problems you may have quickly an efficiently.
I would definitely stay here again. seeing some of the other apartments in Sidari it was definitely one of the most modern and clean properties there."

Legends apartments October 2013
"My husband and I stayed at the Legends Apartments in October 2013 for one week. Staff were lovely and friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed the Greek night on a Thursday night. Apartments were located near to the town center (Sidari) just a short walk along the beach or main road. There were many nice bars and restaurants located in Sidari. One place that we really liked was an Italian restaurant called "Venezia",(not far from Legends apartments) we are not big fans of pizzas but the pizzas which were made in clay ovens were delicious and other meals like steak were of a very good standard. We came back here a few times as food, service and price were superior to the other restaurants we visited."

"Me and my family went to legends on 13th August 2013. It was our first time to Corfu and by far not the last. Legends is a brilliant family run business that all of my family loved. The apartments are nice and clean and everyone is helpful and chatty. My 2 year old daughter made lots of friends whom she spent all day with in the pool. The bar has a great atmosphere and all the guest that was there was lovely. Many of the people. that was staying there have returned year after year, which shows its a fab place. We all hope to return next year as I will not be holidaying any where else.
Would definitely recommend Legends
The Mitchell Family"
