Re: Can't Wait To Go Back !!

Well where do I start. If you are thinking of staying in these apartments, think no more I can answer for you, Book it! You will not regret it. The transfer from the airport is about an hour. On arival at the entrance to the complex we were met by the owner Kostas and his son Zafiris. Little did we know we were about to have one of the best holidays ever. The holiday can only be booked through First Choice and is therefore a British complex. You do get the occasional foreigner visiting the complex maybe to use the pool or onsite restaurants but they go pretty much unnoticed. Zafiris Hotel comlex is situated about a 5 minute walk from the main strip in Sidari, where you will find a number of bars, restaurants and shops. There are a few smaller restaurants shops and bars in the Canal D'Amor area just a stones throw away from the complex entrance. The beach is a 2 minute walk and stretches all the way round to the main Sidari Beach or you have the Canal D'Amour cove which can be reached by steps near the pool, however you will be charged for the sunbeds on Sidari beach. We were staying in a one bedroom apartment. The apartments were basic but very spacious and clean. All come with a fridge, 2 cooking rings, microwave, kettle and toaster. There are 2 types one bed apartments, one has just one floor (ground floor apartments) and the second floor aprtments have an upstairs. Studios are adequate. Cleaners come to the rooms every day except sundays to empty the bins and change towels where needed, which I found very unusual for a self catering property, but was very impressed. The pool area is a very large area, and there is never a problem finding a sunbed, this is whether you go down to the pool at 9am or 3pm. It is also where you will find the Kahlua Pool bar and Restaurant and many of the amazingly friendly staff, Zafiris, Tom, David, Nicky, Dimitrios x 2, who will wait on you hand and foot all day. Snacks are served all throughout the day, chips, sandwiches, toasties, baguettes, you name it they had it. As well as the Kahlua Restaurant there is also the Waterfalls Restaurant situated at the cliff top overlooking the Canal D'Amor, the views of the sunset from here are beautiful and well worth a look. We ate in the complex most nights as the food was superb and could not be faulted. We ate outside in Sidari a few times but found that the quality of the food was nothing compared to that of the Zafiris Hotel. The menu had a bit of everything, ranging from traditional Greek food to more international dishes. On an evening you can head down to the Saxaphone bar. There is an entertainment programe usually starting around 10pm. This consists of Bingo, a Hypnotist, a Live singer, quiz night etc. You will also get to hear DJ Nicky spinning his tracks on the decks. Speaking to other guests while we were away, many return year after year. We are already planning our next stay at the Zafiris Apartments. If you have any questions I will be more then happy to answer

Re: the staff and management where very helpful !

We have just returned Sidari where we stayed at the Zaifiris Hotel - I had read some of the reviews before we left and I have to say, the apartment in itself is very run down in need of some urgent up-dating. When we arrived on the 13th October first thing was the fridge door fell was hanging off the hinges, the bathroom was not very clean alot of mould around the window and shower area. Another issue we had was the kitchen was constantly over run with ants which was off putting for eating in the apartment. Putting all this aside the staff and management where very helpful and did try to ensure you enjoyed your stay. Tip in the Bar Restaurant - Food was excellent especially the Moussaka!!! The beaches where very quiet as it is the end of the season - but all in all we had a relaxing time - just was put off with the apartment. If you are looking for a proper English Meal at the bottom of the hill Area 51 is run a by a English Couple - food was great and they were very nice people, not sure though if they will be returning next year though!!

just come back yesterday from the zafiris hotel. what can i say? absolutely fantastic. set in beautiful grounds. stayed in room 511 and had a lovely view of the pool and the sea. beautiful sunrise in the mornings. all the staff were fantastic, especially Tom who made our holiday!! our girls loved him. he was so funny! couldnt ask for better service. you could lie on your sunbed all day and not have to move as Tom and Nikky were there fetching you whatever you wanted. Tom made us laugh everytime we saw him. was met at the bottom of the 'hill' (only little) by Zafiris himself (and Kira the lovely dog) who took our cases up in their minibus and then carried our cases to our room. the rooms could do with a bit updating but that didnt ruin our holiday. our shower broke but it got fixed straightaway. The Greek night at the hotel on a Sunday night was very good. lovely pool, bar area, reastaurant, fantastic views of the Canal d'amour, lovely beaches, got some fatastic photographs. Dawn in reception was lovely as well, everyone was lovely. want to return as soon as possible. cannot fault it one bit. been to all the spanish islands so it was our first time to Greece and will definately be visiting Greece from now on as they are such friendly people. the weather was fantastic apart from a couple of really windy days. some lovely restaurants. would recomend the Three Little Pigs, and Smugglers. ate all over and did not have one bad meal. hired out a yellow boat off the main beach and had a fantstic couple of hours cruising down the coast! had a go on the Crazy UFO, the Squab and the Fly Fish on the sea, was absolutely fantastic! better than any themepark ride!! never laughed so much in my life! What else can i say apart from we will definately be going back. thankyou so much to all of you at the hotel if you read this for making it such an enjoyable holiday. (especially Tom) Chelsey and Georgia say Hi!!

Re: totally reccommend Sidari, Canal d Amour and the Zafiris apartments to anyone !

Well we have just got back from a weeks stay at Hotel Zafiris - what a lovely place, what lovely staff, NOTHING is too much trouble. They made our stay an unforgettable, relaxing, and total pleasurable one. Our apartment was number 410 and was so nice. We had views of the pool ans sea. I loved the cute staircase leading upstairs. The balcony was sooooo relaxing to sit out and sip oozo and water till the early hours just generally chatting, Zafiris also diddnt mind delivering pizza to us from the resorts very good resturant, i felt a bit bad as the resturant was only a stones throw from our apartment but he truly diddnt mind, even offering to bring the pizza in and serve it to us on our balcony, although we insisted on bringing it in ourselves. Canal d amour was lovely with spectaculr views - dont forget your camera you will need it. The resturants were bril in Sidari, fantastic food (i even tried octupus in vinegar as a starter, go on give it a try) and everyone was polite and helpful. I fell in love with Canal d amour and will defenetly be going back someday, i totally reccommend Sidari, Canal d Amour and the Zafiris Hotel Apartments to anyone, its suitable for all ages
