Mimosa Hotel - (Accommodation in Sidari)

Sarah S          10/10

Just got back from a week staying at the Mimosa. I was a little worried to begin with having read fairly negative reviews of the hotel. However both myself and my partner were very impressed with it, the hotel, rooms pools, food etc was really nice and very high quality, perfect for everyone! 

 The hotel was brilliant, the reception was big and spacious, first impressions were very impressive with friendly staff welcoming us, despite arriving in the early hours of the morning. The pool, surrounding area and reception/bar were all very clean and spacious. The room we had was in the front block and although a little on the small side, was very clean and modern. The sheets were changed every other day and the maid emptied out the bins every day. There was a hairdryer included in our room and i assume it is the same in each other room. We did have a shower curtain (unusual in greece as they are not usually provided as the greek people believe they harbour bacteria, it is the same with bath mats) although the shower did get a little slippery so be careful! the bathroom did tend to get a little flooded but this is again very usual for greece and it drains away eventually.

Breakfast was served between 8am - 10am and is standard continental style, toast, cereal, scrambled eggs on toast, beans on toast, crossiant and fruit salad - simple but nice, a full breakfast and bacon/sausage sandwiches are also available at a small charge. The evening meal is three courses with a choice of 4 starters, 4 main courses and 2 desserts. The meals are not huge but are enough to fill you up. The food we had here (including the impressive snack menu) were lovely.

Overall this was a fantastic holiday, the location of the hotel was amazing, right accross from the beach and in the middle of the action. It's not too noisy although the entertainment at the hotel occasionally went on quite late. I would definately come back here next year. 10 out of 10 in all aspects!!

Memories Restaurant - (Restaurants in Sidari)

Not very impressed with this restaurant, the prices were very reasonable and the service was quick and firendly, however the meals were very small and not particularly tasty, very average. I prefer greek food and my partner prefers english but both meals were a bit of a let-down.

My Partner and i ate here twice during our weeks stay adn we found it to be the best place we tried. My partner tried a mixed grill which, when they bought it out, was huge, 9 types of meat and loads of chips and salad. I tried the moussakka on the first visit and the mixed seafood on the second visit, i was very impressed, the service was top class, the meals were filling and tasty and the portions huge!!

Thomas Cook - (Tour Operators on Corfu)

I have never travelled with thomas cook before but i have no doubts about travelling with them again. From the moment we arrived at the airport to travel to Corfu, they were proffessional, helpful and friendly. The rep on the coach, Amandine, was also our rep at the hotel too. She gave us little packs on arrival on the coach containing a newsletter, helpful hints, emergency contact information and local information about the island and cultures. She was always there when she said she would be and was always smiling and happy, she was good at her job and looked like she enjoyed it too!
