Best of everything
"Have just come back from one of the best holidays ever. The Palmer Apartments are run by the nicest, most helpful family in Greece, if not the world! As soon as you get there you feel yourself relaxing as you are told 'no problem' whenever you make a request for anything. The complex is spotlessly clean and Maria's cooking is not to be missed. As the family's relaxed, generous and considerate ways rub off on their guests good friendships are made and our two daughters will especially miss Costa's snd Evie's two beautiful girls very much. I couldn't recommend these lovely apartments highly enough. Fabulous pool, gorgeous beaches only a short walk away and a wonderfully friendly family who are happy to while away many happy (and late!)evenings at the bar with their guests. Thank you Maria and your lovely family for making our daughters' first visit to a Greek Island so enjoyable and memorable. We will be back! "

Best holiday ever!
"The Palmar appartments are not only spotlessly clean but well equiped and run by a very helpful and friendly family! Nothing was too much trouble and the Greek evening they put on was fabulous! You can tell what a wonderful place this is by the people there that keep going back year after year!!! Fantastic!!! Sidari is so picturesque, the many coves and canal d'amour is out of this world. The fact that the sun shines all the time is a great bonus! xxx"

a step above!
"well well well, where do i start.
firtsly i looked at all the reviews and as i saw they were all outstanding and were looking for a holiday, it sounded almost too good to be sure.
on arrival we were greated very nicely and settled in our room and shortly went out to thevery modern and stylish pool bar, and to my suprise spent around half an hour chatting with spiros one of the brothers. we later met the other brother followed by the rest of the family and thats when i realised we were at a very special hotel.
the food is amazing thanks to the lovely maria and the greek night is a must! and would recommend seeing the hypnotist show in the B.E.D bar!
me and my girlfriend also made some very good friends as the hotel just brings people together and also met the people that got married there two years ago and i genuinly feel lucky to have had the pleasure to have stayed with this lovely family and their 3 young daughters and son. (o and lets not forget my girlfriends favourite Erika the puppy).
I could go on and on but will in short will miss the people but not for too long as i will be sure to return like many others...
great to meet you spiros, costas, evie, maria, their 3 daughters and son...
o and gary lisa of course and jasper, paula, jamie and his family and everyone that made such a memorable experience will hopefully see you there again someday soon!!!"

Fantastic as always!
"My husband and I have just come back from 2 weeks at the Palmar Corfu Apartments (where we got married on the 1st June!)
We have stayed 3 times in total now and are certainly going to book to stay there again very soon! Costas, Spiros, Eveie, Susannah, Maria and Yanis made us all feel extremely welcome as always and made our holiday another to remember. They always make sure everything is perfect for you and nothing is a task too much for them!
As we got married at the Palmar this year, it was extra special for us and again the whole family made the day second to none!
See you in 2012! XxX"

"My partner and I visited the apartments late Sptember 2010. We really enjoyed our time there despite the two days of torrential rain. Very friendly, can't fault the service at all. Maid service every day, I don't know how she did it, very thorough. Although we visited towards the end of the season there was still plenty to do and see. It is worthwhile taking a trip into Corfu Town loads of little shops to explore and grab a bargain. If you visit, and I would recommend you do keep a look out for a little black and white cat who adopted us for the 10 days we were there, very affectionate could have took him home with us along with the sunshine."

"All i need to say is this hotel is faultless, they staff are amazing and cant do enough for you. Slice of cake waiting for you on arrival and orange juice, also a bottle of water and tea bags. Food in hotel top quality home made by Maria. Well worth trying. Also attend the greek night in the hotel its brill and very good fun.
Hotel rooms are spotless and well equipped only 14 rooms in total. Beds are hard but you get used to it or should i say we did.
A great bar to try is Bar Escape just down the road from hotel. They do a daily quiz which is very good fun.
Sidari is brill and loads to do.
If your thinking of trying Palmar Corfu then dont hesitate.
Thanks to the staff for a fantastic holiday."

"We booked our holiday based on the reviews we had read. I thought that the holiday would be too good to be true but it wasn't. Me and my partner had the most fantastic holiday. There is plenty to do with many trips to go on and water sports at the beach, but the hotel is far enough away so it is very quiet and relaxing. One problem we did have was that the elecricity in our room would trip. This happened for two days, every two hours the electrice would trip. This would have been problem if the staff weren't so good to us. They would put the electric back on for us and at nght would wake up just to make sure it was still on so our air con would work. But that problem was soon sorted.If you are thinking about it do not hestiate book staright away!"
