Me & my Wife have just come back from having a very good two weeks at the 5 star Hotel Perissia Sidi.

Good food, good staff, 24 hour bar good shows. What else can I say, give it a try we feel sure you will enjoy it. Plus the Hotel is spotless.

Stayed at this hotel in May 2005. Hotel location is very good - right on the beach and within a fifteen minute beachside walk of Side town centre which is really nice with shops and some bars - best of all it's almost completely pedestrianised due to the ruins everywhere! The beach outside this hotel is swept each day and discreet security keep hawkers away.

The hotel is quite small by Med standards - and this is nice! It's small enough that the staff will know you by the second day which is good service!

Rooms are quite small but well furnished. Be warned - balconies though are tiny. Each room has a small bathroom and the only toiletries provided are soap - so take your own shampoo etc. There is a minibar in each room which, if you are AI will be refilled every day with beers, waters and soft drinks.

There is a lobby bar where drinks can be taken and a garden bar shared with the Cennet hotel. It's a nice outside bar where lunch is also served.

Entertainment is very limited. Some night there was nothing. And be prepared for an older, German crowd. This is not a place to take children.

Meals are taken outside if the weather is good. Breakfast consist of breads, jams, honeys, cheese, ham, olives, and eggs. Fresh ornage juice and omelettes etc will cost you extra. Lunch is from a separate Thomas Cook menu and consists of Burger, Chicken Kebab, Fries, Salads etc and deserts. Dinner is waiter served for starter and main. There's also a salad bar (help yourself - it's good!) and desert bar.

Drinks are served in glasses and the staff are happy to serve pints of beer and large vodkas etc. Bottled water is also free.

In essence this is a great hotel.

Older Germans form 85% of the guests and there is nothing for children. But is you want a quiet holiday, then all I can say is that I spoke to some English people who had returned to the same hotel 4 years running. I think that says a lot. Enjoy!
