Amazing base for the holiday of a life time. Only 16 when I went but some messy nights were had by all. Beach literally 20steps form the pool =) Breathtaking views from the restaurant on the cliff and really good food =)
Came back from our 2nd holiday at the zafiris on 18 august, yet again we thourghly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is posited perfectly, just out of all the hustle and bustle but 2secs away from it with a beatifull view of the canal. The staff are amazingly friendly and special mention to tom, nicky and zafiris himself. Any problems were dealt straight away and the biggest problem we had was a lightbulb not working. Pool/ Pool area is always kept clean and tidy. i'd recommend these aparments to anybody.
We havent been this year yet and booked for june next year
Went to the Zafiris in Sep 2006 and had a great time, so much so we have booked for this September.The setting of the pool bar is outstanding and the general service is second to none.
we stayed at zafiris two years ago and had a great time the apartments were clean and comfortable the food in the poolside bar is good quality, i must admit that i had to smile when i noticed that they deliver food ordered at the saxaphone bar in a van as its about 75metres away (greek version of meals on wheels )the waiters around the pool are very attentive without being a pain which is a hard thing to do but they do it emptying ashtrays and collecting drinks from the bar for you so you dont have to get off your sunbed superbly.
Can only speak for these apartments!!.Very close to a lovely beach .It's a very friendly place and can't do enough to make your stay great.At the bottom of the hill there is the sax's bar .Its about a 15mins walk to the main bit of Sidari.Alison
Thinking of travelling to sidari in July 08 looking for a suitable base we are a mixed group of singles & couples, late 20s 30s, we want to be near the town but not on top of it, near a beach etc, a good Bar at the hotel & reception any location & accommodation information greatly received for fussy me, my Friends priority is The barís, Currently looking at Zafiris & Ostria apart, Any advise on Bars & restaurants in the area, trips etc really grateful
Helooo im 15 years old and jus been to zafiris apartments for 2 weeks with my mum, dad and best friend. Its the best holiday i've evr had !!!!!!. Zafiris, Demetrius, Spiros, Niki, Yanis and George are amazing (the bar men and waiters) When we first arrived Zafiris carried are cases and got us a free drink beacuse are rooms werent quite ready which was really nice.
we where that impressed we are going back in october zarifris made us feel so welcome
we have just returned from our first visit to the Greek Islands and what a good choice it was. The holiday got off to a great start when Zafiris met us at 2am to deliver our luggage to the apartment.When we got up the view from the balcony was stunning, the pool was just across from us and then the sea..all of the staff were really friendly and went out of their way to find out our names , they provided a great service around the pool keeping us supplied with food and drink. A special mention for George, Nicky, Spiros , Kelly and Dawn in reception who all made the holiday really enjoyable. We will be returning to Corfu as soon as possible and I don,t think Spain stands a chance against this beautiful island!

Anyone wanna chat my msn is email@example.com
We all went last year and booked again this year Above Average well having been to Sidari for many years we would say it is
WELL ABOVE AVERAGE .
We've been home for a few weeks after having a fantastic week at
Zafiris apartments. We went in august last year for two weeks and
loved every minute - we were made so welcome - so we were really
looking forward to going there again. It was great to get off the
coach and be greeted by name by Zafiris (the owners son). It was like
going back to see old friends.
Other posts on this thread will describe the place itself, but I wanted to repeat the opinion that the service is second to none. We've been to other hotels or apartments over the years, but nowhere has come close to the way that the staff at Zafiris looked after us. Zafiris, George, Nicky and Spiros and the other members of the team really are the friendliest bunch of people you could hope to meet.
We ate mainly at the Kahlua Bar and it was wonderful sitting on the cliff top overlooking the beach and watching the sunset. There is a wide and varied menu and the food is good. If you do want a change of scenery, another restaurant I would highly recommend is "Sailors", which is about a 10 minute walk away and is owned by Spiros Vlasseros, who worked previously at the Zafiris. His restaurant is immaculate and has a varied menu which focuses on traditional Greek dishes. The food here is excellent and Spiros and his family are great people too.
In conclusion, I can't recommend Zafiris or Sailors highly enough and we hope to return soon.
Zafiras is above average Greek accommodation and the pool area is very pleasant. The 'free' air conditioning was a godsend. The lack of 'curtsey' facilities for late departures was disappointing. The excursions provided by Selini Travel were also disappointing. The trip up the mountain is well worth it for the views but don't go with Selini in the evening. The Monolith taverna they take you to for dinner is absolutely infested with mosquitoes and has overpriced food and drink. The Selini Travel trip to Corfu Town took 2 hours to get there and the same back Ė it's quicker on the local bus! We also booked a trip to Arillas which Selini Travel cancelled while we were standing waiting for their coach! The Village Taverna is outstanding for the quality of the food. Angelinas and Marias are good value and you always get a voucher for a free bottle of wine for your next visit. They also do a nightly quiz with very generous prizes.
Had another wonderful holiday, we have been going here for at least 10 years now and the reception we receive is overwhelming, Costas and Zafiris and all the staff have made us very welcome every year and probably with all other guests and I highly recommend these apartments, although this year the ants were particularly bad,do take or buy ant spray especially at sunbeds on grass.The greek night is a laugh.Spiros (George Michael lookalike) has now opened his own taverna The sailors, heading to town turn right at three pigs its then not too far on left, wonderful reception, wonderful meals. The Zafiris do wonderful food also especially snacks at poolside, you will want to go back again and again, Yamas
I've just had a wonderful time at the Zafiris apartments with my friend her mum and her mums friend. Even though it was about 3 weeks ago i will never forget it. It was great. Everyone was really kind and they were always making us laugh. Spiros was always out waiter and he came and chatted with us by the pool. we have even got a picture with him and one of all the staff! I thought it was a beautiful place and i would definately go back there. Thankyou for making it such a good holiday!
Well what can i say apart from My new Husband and I just returned 04/06 from our Honeymoon. We stayed at the Zafiris Apartments and had a fantastic time. Hi to George, Niki, Zafiris, Barbie and thanks for making our honeymoon great. Not only were the staff fabulous but our apartment 509 was wicked it had fantastic veiws of the sea and pool our cleaner came 6 times in the week we were there and cleaned very well. Towels were changed as was the bedding. The food at the onsite restaurant was excellent we ate there most night also occasionally having a full english in the morning. The pool was refreshing and the atmosphere relaxing. The Greek night was the best. We also went to the sax bar which has a great atmosphere and the decor rocks. We are booking again for next year and this time taking our little girl. I really cant understand why anyone would complain as Zafiris is always on the case of any problems.
Me and my family just got back from Zafiris on Monday (04/06) we had a fantastic time and didnt want to come home. The people are what make it, Zafiris, Niki, George, Spyro, Dimitri and all the guys are great!! I have a 2 year old girl and a 4 year old girl, they loved it and loved the people, we couldnt get them out of the pool or the sax bar! We stayed round the pool most days and ate breakfast/lunch there (which was really good) and then went into Sidari itself on an evening but ended up at the sax bar for a couple before going back to the apartment. We only had a studio which was basic but everything we needed and close to the pool, we had a bit of a problem with ants the first couple of days but as soon as it was mentioned to Zafiris it was sorted. Sidari was a great place for kids and we are hoping to be back at the Zafiris in the near future xx
