Just perfect THANK YOU

We are a family of four adults and have had the best stay at this gorgeous hotel. We requested rooms adjacent to each other which the hotel provided. The rooms are lovely, clean and nicely decorated. Both with nice balconies, chairs and small table also an airer to dry wet beach towels etc. there is also a TV, mini fridge and a sofa/chair. The shower room is great with a very powerful shower and plenty of hot water. The main reception area is stylish and comfortable and very welcoming, then bar area/ restaurant is also stylish and very clean. Plenty of seating both inside and out. Breakfast is great with an enormous selection of both hot and cold food, coffees teas as well as fruit juice and water. The pastries are amazing. Pool area is great as are all of the grounds surrounding the hotel, clean and tidy and very well maintained. The pool isn’t huge but perfect for cooling off in and floating around, plenty of sun loungers and towels. The restaurant menu is limited but the food is lovely. The best bit is the Staff. They are delightful, friendly, welcoming and helpful. They work incredibly hard and truly helped make our stay perfect in every way! THANK YOU X Location is perfect, there is a supermarket 20m away, the bus stop is 50m away and the busses run regularly all day and late into the night (they do get busy) and cost 2€ to get into Skiathos town (about 20 mins). Koukanaris beach is a 5 min walk from the hotel and is just perfect! About 800m of white sand, Crystal clear water and lots of sun loungers (price range €10 - €15 for 2 plus an umbrella for whole day). Gently sloping sand into the sea and very safe, 2 lifeguard stations, lots of water sports should you wish and the snorkelling is amazing. The Skiathos dive centre is at the far end of the beach and my daughter did her PADI open water diving while we were here. Absolutely loved it and you are in safe hands with Panos and his dive team. From the hotel you can walk easily through the forest to beaches a little further away, they are smaller but all have sun loungers should you want them and the sea is just as rewarding it was like being in a Fish tank, the water is warm 24* and clear. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and we will definitely be coming back.
NICE TRIP BUT………

This was our 4th visit to this lovely hotel, bringing friends with us on this occasion. It was every bit as satisfactory as previous visits apart from a couple of niggles. We had asked for our rooms to be adjacent, but this evidently was not possible. Never mind, it is not that big a hotel for it to matter that much, but it was booked together so we expected to be near them. When shown to our room we were told about all the facilities including a small safe, which is something we rely on having lost all our valuables previously, which is not a nice experience. There were no instructions how to program the safe, plus the safe was not attached to anything, you could just pick it up and take it! When we mentioned this we were told that all the safes were like that and nothing would happen to it, but there would be someone round to show us how to program it and they would fix it to the wall, this never happened! Also, when the maid came in to clean the room, they left the sliding doors to the terrace open, which when you are on the ground floor is not good news. So we ended up carrying our valuables round with us for the week. Also when approached about watching the Formula 1 racing on thenTV, the lady my husband asked could’t be bothered to find out if this was possible, so my husband and friend had to go to the local sports bar to watch it, only for myself and my lady friend who had stayed behind by the pool with a drink noticed that the TV by the bar was actually showing the race! These things might sound trivial, but we have recommended this hotel to so many people, found it a little lacking in these respects. It probably wouldn’t stop us returning as we love the island so much and especially Koukounaries, but think it’s important that the hotel are aware of these issues.
Lovely pretty hotel in good location

We stayed here for 10 nights in August 2022 with our 2 children, ages 12 and 9. Enjoyed our stay and suited our type of holiday. Lovely clean hotel with very pretty grounds in a good location. Room: Family suite was very clean and a great size, 2 bedrooms, double bed, dressing table, sofa bed and 2 armchairs in one and queen bed, dressing table in the other. Both with own en-suite, own fridge and access to shared ground floor terrace. Ground floor terrace had a dining table with 4 chairs then a sofa, coffee table and 2 comfy chairs as well as a very useful airing rack. Felt very private and we sat out here early evening while the children napped and later too. Pool: we knew this was small but we aren’t pool people so not a problem for us. It always looked quiet so if you have older children who like to splash a bit and jump in then perhaps not for you…but beautiful beaches nearby. Beaches: Koukounaries beach is about a 5-10 min walk away, beautiful clear water but it’s extremely busy and the cruise ships stop here. Three watersport businesses all same price and same offerings. Three beach cafes, all similar and none great, overpriced fast food really but ok. At the very end of beach is a hotel beach restaurant serving interesting salads and Mexican food which was delicious but a bit more pricey than the cafes., definitely worth a visit. The water taxi to skiathos town leaves from this end of the beach, fun way to get to skiathos, 6euros one way. You can also walk to Mandraki Beach, Elias beach and one other. About a 30-40 minute walk through the woods to get to these beaches but they are very peaceful, so warm and clear water, soft sand with sunbeds for hire and one beach cafe on each. Nudist beach at end of Elias beach which the children found funny!! Supermarket: next door supermarket sells everything including fresh rolls, cakes and pastries. Restaurants: 4 lovely restaurants just a couple of minutes walk away and a bar shoring sports. We also got the bus a few nights into skiathos town (15-20 min) or to bus stop 19 (5min) for a nice choice of 5 or 6 other restaurants. Tuesday BBQ: we went to this but weren’t impressed, starter selection was ok, meat selection poor and not great quality. Nice typical Greek desserts. Breakfast: breakfast was nice but not much variation although plenty of choice. Would have been nice to have an omelette station. They were cooking fresh crepes one morning which looked nice. The waiters were really efficient clearing tables. Reception: very friendly and helpful. Overall a lovely hotel in good location.

Loved this quite area of the island as the town is only 15 min drive away. In general clean rooms, good sleep quality, friendly staff at the bar. Nice food at the “white bar” with reasonable prices. A better atmosphere will help the hotel to have more people staying in the hotel. The only issue from our side was the bad smell at the toilet.

A wonderful hotel. It is a quiet spot but just a bus ride away from the town centre. Staff are extremely friendly and our room was immaculate. Evenings did lack atmosphere. Enjoyed the film night as we had just been to see the Mama Mia Chapel at Skopolos. I think they need more of those as they were well attended. We loved our holiday here .thoroughly recommend it .
