Quaint mini pet friendly boutique hotel with a lot of character. Very inviting, informative and helpful reception personnel. Very clean and vibrant lobby area with lots of character. Room was very spacious and spotless with magnificent views from the balcony of the water. I felt at home at this marvelous little hidden gem. Even though it’s a little bit off of the main transient walkways we will definitely come back.

I booked the Atlas at short notice and chose a Superior Double with a balcony overlooking the garden at the back (I had room 211). It was very quiet, apart from Friday and Saturday when, despite closing the balcony doors, I could hear music till 2.00am (I think from The Borzoi) but that was hardly the hotel's fault. The bed was king sized and incredibly comfortable. The room was equipped with hairdryer, kettle, fridge, safe, TV and radio. Aircon, WiFi, and slippers were also provided. A bottle of (extremely good) white wine was provided on arrival, as was a litre bottle of water every day if needed. There was cleaning every day with fresh towels and the toiletries were also replaced every day. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and carried my cases both up and down the stairs for me. Nowhere is perfect and I would say a downside was that while the wardrobe had plenty of space for one (I was travelling alone) it would be definitely cramped for 2, especially since there were also no drawers at all. However, all in all, an excellent choice in a great location at a reason price, with no extras to pay for and I would certainly stay again.

We found this hotel to be in a brilliant location and really comfortable. Demetrius on reception was really friendly. Then the Thomas Cook situation happened this is when the owner and staff really stepped up. Not only did they make sure we would have a room for a couple of nights if we needed to stay longer until our flight home was sorted out they even jiggled things around so we would be able to stay in the same room. They were continually encouraging us and helped to put our minds at rest so we could enjoy our holiday. We will be coming back and would stay nowhere else but this hotel.

Our normal hotel was not open this season, so we selected the Water as an alternative. We had seen criticism of the access, but knew where the taxi would drop us, knew the walk along the old harbour and our friend lives a little further up the steps, so no surprises. So for a little effort you get a location on there harbour with unquestionably the best view in Skiathos Town. The room is very clean and functional, the balcony and view superb. We found the location was excellent, the club next door was not open this season, and did not find the one next door too noisy, in fact when we got in on several nights it had already shut. Demitris met us by the barrier and helped with the cases, Covid has caused problems for everyone but he helped with kettle etc. We had a late flight so he let us use and shower in our room in the afternoon, a real help! There are a few glitches, but Dimitris seemed keen to resolve these, first was no wardrobe so clothes stay in suitcase and the second was deadlocking the escape doors. In summary, we would look to come back here next year.

Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to Anya and Annie at Mimoza Studios for looking after us so well when our flight was cancelled due to a hurricane. Our first time in Skiathos and almost the whole week was spoiled by hurricane Zorba. Torrential rain, gale force winds, dark, cold and damp, it was not the holiday we had so looked forward to. When our return flight was cancelled and we were stuck at the airport, having been told (incorrectly, as it turned out) that we couldn't return to our apartment, Anya and her English friend Annie opened their doors to about 20 of us who were all flight only customers of Thomas Cook. The Mimoza had actually just closed for the end of the season, but they opened up, welcomed us all in and made sure everyone was comfortable and warm. Annie also went out of her way the next day to find out for us what was going on and when our return flight had been rescheduled for, enabling us all to grab a couple of hours in the sunshine which had finally returned after eluding us all week. I can't thank them enough for their hospitality, good humour and reassurance to a bunch of tired, stressed and cold, damp holiday makers in our time of need. THANK YOU so much, ladies, for everything you did for us xxx

Over the years I’ve stayed in several of the pensions on Skiathos. Filoxenia (Fee-L-KSenia, say it right for the taxi), is a new favorite. It’s located toward the end of Papadiamante. The port is an easy walk, but I’d recommend a taxi to the ferry with luggage. The hotel is spotless, the marble floors, linens, and bathrooms are kept in pristine condition. You’ll find no dust or mess and I particularly liked that the floors are one height, no stepping up an inch into the bathroom or the balcony—and less chance to stub my toes every time I go there. The staff is helpful, patient, and kind. Occasionally we had a language barrier, but we managed just fine. The balcony is comfortable to dry clothes on or to sit and relax. There is breakfast available for a small fee. I’m gluten-free and it’s mostly breads and cakes. It is convenient, although breakfast is available almost anywhere in the port area. On my last day before continuing my journey I asked for only milk and an egg—if I’d figured out how to say that in Greek sooner I’d have done it the entire trip. There’s a tiny grocer on the corner with good fruit and basics to supplement, and there’s a refrigerator in your room. You can purchase bottled water for a small price there too. I’m looking forward to staying there again soon. It’s not too far from bus stop three for beach access. (Upper end of the street and turn right.) Bus stop four is the other way, but I don’t recommend it. The traffic is fast and dangerous in that direction.

These apartments are perfect. They are owned by the loveliest family who are willing to help if you have any questions about the area. When we arrived the owner offered to carry our luggage up the stairs and pointed out some key travel spots. We also got a ride back to the airport to save us on a taxi which was very kind! The room was cleaned every day and had plenty of storage and WiFi, it was just what we needed for a 4 night stay. The location couldn't have been better, in the heart of Skiathos town but not too close to the noise, just up the road. There is a bus stop very close by which takes you to the west beaches and the port is not even a 10 minute walk away, down the main street. The airport is a 10 minute drive or so. All in all an excellent experience and we would come back here! Thank you to all the staff for such a great stay xx

The location of this place was good and very close to everything. There is also a good wash and fold laundry service close by called ''Snow White' (5min walk). We were traveling Greece with children for a month, so accessible laundry services are always great. The staff at this hotel was very friendly, but after check-in we never saw anyone at the hotel until check-out. This place does not provide parking so if you are renting a car finding parking is very difficult. The room we were given (quadruple room) was way too small for us with not enough beds. They knew we were a family of five when we booked and they gave us a room with three beds (bunkbed with 2 single beds, and one double bed). Room size was also very, very small. This room should not be offered to families of five. The noise level in the hotel from young party goers was terrible (people slamming doors throughout the night, people laughing and yelling in the hallways, people partying in their rooms). I'm not sure if it's always like this, but the fact that no one working at the hotel did anything about it shows me exactly what type of guests this place caters too, and doesn't care about those who are trying to sleep at 3am. Our room description read 'Large balcony with unobstructed views of Skiathos town'. Our balcony was small, about 3' x 6' and there was a huge pine tree blocking our view. Complete opposite of what was in our booking.com photo and room description. If you are given the same description you may want to clarify with them to make sure that's what you are getting. There are much better places to stay in Skiathos if you're a family with young children. Take your time and look around - Don't stay here.

We booked the room through a travel agency called Grecos Travel and stayed there for 5 nights. First of all, even though we asked for a double bed (because we are a couple) and the travel agency said they had booked a with a double bed, we got two sigle beds side by side. When we confronted the receptionist for the bed he said that the maids didn't had time to make it look like a double bed(what kind of management is this??). The service was really bad. We had to carry our luggage 3 floors by ourselves. There was no elevato. The room was small with thin walls so we could hear everything that was happening in other rooms(we were lucky though and our neighbors weren't noisy at night). It wasn't very clean (which is very important nowadays especially because of the covid). The shower didn't have a curtain so when you took a shower the water was all over the place. The room didn't have a phone, the sheets were never changed and the room curtains were dirty and unhinged on one side. Lastly one day we had asked them to clean our room and when we came back it smelled bad, like they had used the same water to mop the entire hotel. The only reason we stayed there for our entire vacation was the location, 5' from town center. All an all bad accommodation. Wouldn't recommend!!!

Giannis and Martha operate a lovely budget pension above the port and tourist center, but not so far above that even someone like me with mobility issues has trouble getting there for restaurants and sight-seeing. The room was immaculate and, while not fancy, comes with all with all the amenities you will need, including a fridge, TV, good, quiet air-conditioning and storage space. Views over Skiathos Town are fabulous from room balconies and even better from the terrace. Breakfast was good coffee, bread and jam, and cake - I think there was also some cheese on offer -- delicious and enjoyed in a lovely setting. Giannis picked us up at the airport and Martha drove us to the ferry. Will certainly stay here again.

Sadly we only had a 7 night stay at these beautiful apartments, wishing now we had booked a 14 night holiday. The villa is family run and you couldn’t ask for better hosts - nothing was too much trouble for them. The room I had was spacious and clean with regular towel and linen changes. My daughter and Family were next door so the children could wander from apartment to apartment safely. We had a garden view, which was very pretty and well maintained. Beaches are within walking distance and although no pool at the villa you were able to use any nearby pool. I know a pool is in planning for them. Supermarket directly opposite and more nearby. Excellent choice of restaurants within walking distance so everything is to hand if you don’t want to get the bus or taxi elsewhere. If I could return tomorrow I would I just loved everything about this holiday.

The hotel itself is lovely, great views over the bay and the beach itself is fabulous. The outside eating/bar area is charming, traditional and clean. We had a superb room, freshly decorated with great amenities, nicely furnished balcony. The pool area was lovely, plenty of beds and the very pleasant Marielena on hand. We were on a B&B basis and boy were we pleased with that decision! The breakfast service was horrendous and the guy who appeared to be in charge was totally incompetent, no direction given to staff, no perception of what was happening around him he just kept coming out with food we hadn't ordered and then passing it on to other bewildered diners. We witnessed several people just get up and leave out of sheer frustration. We had to change our mindset and just sit back and enjoy the pantomime whilst hoping at least to get a hot cup of coffee. We had one evening meal in the hotel and that was awful, again waiting staff abrupt and rude with the exception of Fanis who was doing his utmost to put things right. Yes, the Covid situation was having some impact but shouldn't affect the staff standards. The nearby restaurants were nice but proved difficult to get to at night time as it was pitch black and to get a taxi it had to come from Skiathos town so charged accordingly, around E16 euros. We found it easier to either get the free hotel bus or local bus (2 Euros) into town where there was a great choice of restaurants. No complaints about reception staff and cleaners as everywhere was absolutely spotless, We had booked this hotel as it advertised a tennis court but it was being used for storage and upon asking were we just told it's not available. Totally unacceptable! Loved Skiathos and we are planning to go again next year but not to this hotel.

We were a group of four and spent a week at the Skiathos Princess Hotel at the end of September. It was a birthday treat. We first spotted this hotel four years ago when we were holidaying on the island and when an opportunity came up to stay we grabbed it. It exceeded our expectations. This was mainly due to the gracious and welcoming staff who turned our holiday into an experience we shall not forget. So a huge thank you to you all. On arrival it was clear that one of our party would be having some difficulty with the accommodation booked and we were swiftly upgraded to a ground floor suite that accommodated all four of us. What a treat that was and again shows the manager and his team going that extra distance to ensure their visitors are well looked after for their entire stay. Our apartment was cleaned thoroughly each day, the beds turned down each evening which was a treat to come back to. The maids were friendly and would always give us an extra ten minutes or so if we needed it. Superb hanging space in the wardrobes and even more space in the good quality drawer units. A good number of sockets for gadget charging and the hairdryer was better than my own, so that stayed in the suitcase. The beds were large and very comfortable, sometimes so much I didn't actually want to get up. But when the tummy rumbled it was time for the included breakfast. We could have had it in the apartment but then we'd have missed out on the huge variety on offer. The Princess offers a buffet-plus breakfast with freshly cooked omelettes or pancakes and an enormous selection of pastries, fruit, and hot food to satisfy anyone's palate. Large tables set out for larger parties and smaller tables for two people or four. Cannot be faulted, excellent. After breakfast it was time to explore the grounds. Lots of real grass areas lead you to the large swimming pool with comfortable sunbeds, a jacuzzi pool and a pool for the chlldren which lies behind the adult one. Then off to the beach, the private area of the beach has comfortable sunbeds with bamboo parasols for the much needed shade at certain times of the day. And curtained cabanas are available if you would like some privacy, some did but most didn't. Excellent swimming, starts shallow and then gets deep. If you don't want to use the beds provided there is a large expanse of beach close by for just lying around on your towels. I should mention here that pool towels are provided and there is a bin by the pool bar for leaving the wet ones. Dry ones are left the next day by the maid. There is a pool bar, obviously next to the pools which serve good quality snacks, ice creams and light lunches. You can sit in the sun or in the shade to eat. Plenty of room. By the beach there is another bar for drinks and very, very nice toilets. That was such a surprise to find such lovely toilets for beachgoers. Well done whoever thought of that. Thank you Stelios and Ignatius, we will

We enjoyed our stay at Magic Hotel. The room is comfortable and very clean, the bathroom is great and the sea-view balcony is large enough and hidden from the view, so it feels private. The breakfast has enough options, typical for a good 4* hotel, cold cuts, sausages, eggs, cereals, jams, fruit, coffee/tea... The whole staff was super nice during our whole stay and tried their best to make our stay the best as possible, especially the ladies at the reception desk. The checkout was very easy and painless, we could use the private luggage area to keep our stuff and also use the showers for the rest of the day. The pool area is nice. Not too big, big enough. There was hardly anyone there even though it was high season, so we could take a splash and refresh there. The sunbeads are really nice and towels are provided. There was always free parking space, although the parking is a bit tricky to get to with a bigger car, as it's steep and relatively narrow way up. As for the surroundings, Agia Paraskevi beach is not too bad, but there are much better ones nearby. During the high season we suggest getting around by car, as the bus is usually overcrowded and often won't even make the stop at this station because it's full.

Having read previous reviews my expectations were not high for Kanapitsa Mare and sadly this was confirmed during our stay. This was our 5th trip to beautiful Skiathos and we have stayed in a variety of self catering and hotel accommodation in different parts of the Island so these are what I am comparing Mare with. My purpose with my reviews is always to be fair and as informative as possible for future guests. Of course all opinions are subjective. The Hotel has so much potential because of it’s enviable position which affords beautiful views. The very large terrace and pool area make the most of these. Most of the other public areas are attractive but some of the faded dirty pictures add to the feeling of a lack of care. This is most obvious in the garden troughs that surround the terrace and edge of the balconies - they are sparsely filled with very dry earth and dead looking plants which on the room balcony just obscure the view! Other parts of the gardens were well managed and cared for. I had booked a sea view double and had asked for a high floor. We were given a room on the 2nd floor (lowest accommodation level) above the breakfast room. Extremely dated and tatty fitted units for clothes and fridge. Ancient safe which we found impossible to programme - it didn’t seem to bear any similarity to the instructions! Very small bathroom with bath and shower but no bath plug. Toiletries supplied on arrival but not replenished during stay. Bedroom area adequate size with extremely firm/hard mattresses. We asked for extra pillows and they arrived very promptly. Balcony good size with a nice view slightly obliterated by some trees and the aforementioned foliage in the trough. Free A/C worked well with none of the issues that others have mentioned. Cleaned well and towels changed when required. Breakfast was good, completely self service. On our 2nd evening we returned to the hotel about 2230 for a coffee and a night cap only to be told very rudely that the coffee machine is turned off at 2130 for cleaning so no coffee - the barman seemed to think it was strange that I didn’t know this. Needless to say we didn’t use the bar again after this. Personally I found the staff I met as being pleasant but perfunctory. Usually my pathetic attempts to practice my limited Greek illicit a friendly response but not here. This is best demonstrated by the day we left - usually when you hand your key in you expect an expression of thanks for choosing the hotel and something along the lines of ‘we hope you enjoyed your stay’, the Receptionist merely said ‘thank you, goodbye’ just like we’d bought a pint of milk in the supermarket! We travelled with TUI and whilst it was not an issue for us it is worth noting, especially for first time visitors, that there are no Rep visits at this accommodation and the Welcome meeting is held elsewhere. Locally there is a handy Supermarket, Johnny’s Taverna and bar (pre-booking recomme

We have just returned from a week's holiday at this lovely hotel in Skiathos. The hotel is a great choice for anybody who wants to be close to both the town and the beach as it is only 15 minutes walk to the town and less than that to the beach. The hotel is located up a steep hill but the views over the bay are fantastic. We ate out in the old port area every night and enjoyed the walk back - it was good exercise after a meal and a few glasses of wine! The hotel has its own car park and there were always free places available which was convenient as we hired a car for a few days. The family who run the hotel and their staff were very friendly and always on hand to help. The hotel has a nice pool and even in August sunbeds and umbrellas were always available during the day. There is a pool bar open until 9pm which serves snacks, ice cream and drinks at reasonable prices. The room was comfortable with fantastic views from the balcony. It had a fridge and kettle. There was a good choice of food in the breakfast buffet including home made cakes and bread which were delicious. Many thanks again to everybody at Hotel Rene.

We’ve just returned from a weeks stay at the Irida. The location is perfect. 10 mins drive from the airport but outside of the main hustle and bustle of Skiathos Town. It’s located off the main road that runs from one side of the island to the other. It is elevated (probably not ideal for those less mobile) but there is a car park just in front of the hotel so if you have a car, it’s not too much of a problem but also taxis will take you to the very top of the driveway. Our room was spacious and cleaned every day. The view across the Aegean sea towards smaller islands was absolutely breathtaking. The room itself was slightly detached from the main hotel and personally we felt slightly disappointed by its decor. It felt like a cave, with the kids bedroom like a large dressing room- there were no windows and no air con in that room (with daily temps around 35c and by night 29c it was necessary to have some ventilation). The kitchen area was not finished as in tiles missing or damaged and the kitchen units were quite shoddy as were parts of the bathroom. The kitchen area wasn’t equipped at all for cooking or preparing food. It did have plates and glasses and an oven but no cooking utensils etc. There is a fridge which was a real bonus. The air con in the main room broke down but was quickly fixed after a very sticky night. We have two teens so WiFi is important to them but unfortunately they couldn’t get WiFi in our room. I’m sure other rooms in the hotel would be able to get it though. It’s definitely available at the pool area. The staff are lovely and we can’t say enough good things about them. They work long hours and will do everything possible to ensure that you have a super stay. Efi in particular is the jewel in the crown, welcomes everyone as they return from days out, is happy to chat about anything and everything, and was great fun to be around whilst still being very professional. Breakfast is good and varied. Plenty of fruit, Greek yoghurts, cakes, pastries, ham, cheese, eggs (all varieties), bread, bacon, sausages, teas, coffee, juices etc The pool is small but it’s a welcome place to cool off and relaxing to sit around and look out over the sea. Sunbed frames have probably seen better days but the beds are comfortable. Towels are provided at the pool area and always plenty of sun beds to go around. All in all I would definitely recommend the hotel for a great relaxing family holiday.

I booked the Atlas at short notice and chose a Superior Double with a balcony overlooking the garden at the back (I had room 211). It was very quiet, apart from Friday and Saturday when, despite closing the balcony doors, I could hear music till 2.00am (I think from The Borzoi) but that was hardly the hotel's fault. The bed was king sized and incredibly comfortable. The room was equipped with hairdryer, kettle, fridge, safe, TV and radio. Aircon, WiFi, and slippers were also provided. A bottle of (extremely good) white wine was provided on arrival, as was a litre bottle of water every day if needed. There was cleaning every day with fresh towels and the toiletries were also replaced every day. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and carried my cases both up and down the stairs for me. Nowhere is perfect and I would say a downside was that while the wardrobe had plenty of space for one (I was travelling alone) it would be definitely cramped for 2, especially since there were also no drawers at all. However, all in all, an excellent choice in a great location at a reason price, with no extras to pay for and I would certainly stay again.

The hotel has everything you need to feel just perfect. The hotel is placed very close to the city center as well as the port. It has many parking places, but in order to get there call the staff 15 minutes before to guide you to the hotel-waze application does not guide you very well there. You can access every point of the island with any means of transportation. The rooms are very spacious, clean, equipped everyday with all that you will possibly need. Also, the food and breakfast is flavorsome, with local, authentic products. The crew working there is very pleasant and discreet. However, if you needed anything, they would immediately appear. The pool, as well as the other poll-related facilities were also excellent and well done maintained. In conclusion, we warmly recommend this hotel, because the atmosphere, food and crew were outstanding. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience and we can’t wait to go back there. Thank you all.

Many plus points here, this was our second holiday here, great value for money, love the stunning views, gorgeous swimming pool, padded sun beds, cleanliness and the fairly close proximity to Skiathos town (around a 20 min walk) bus stop 5 is just on the main road at the bottom of the drive and lane. Fengeros is a lovely quiet family hotel and the pool bar is quiet and low key. Be aware if you decide to book a higher floor room as we did last year! because you have around 71 steps to climb To the top ones (with your luggage) which are to be added on top of the quite steep drive. There’s lots of parking spaces if you hire a vehicle. Also there’s a couple of decent supermarkets down the hill for everyday supply’s. It’s nice to walk on the sandy beach of megali ammos into town of an evening stopping for a cocktail on the way or eating at one of the lovely restaurants there, the views are just stunning, our favourite was del mar. We have been to Skiathos ten times now, Fengeros village really takes some beating . Alexandra, George and stammos are laid back, friendly, lovely people always on hand if you need anything, this year we were Treated like family. I would recommend without hesitation!

For anyone considering going to Skiathos next year 2020, which you probably are to be reading reviews of the Alkyon, then read on. You might be confused as to why these reviews go from 2 star to 5 star, I will try to clarify. The 5 stars are obviously very satisfied customers, many of whom go back to this hotel year after year, as my husband and I do. Next year will be our 15th or 16th, I’ve lost count. The lower stars of course are entitled to their opinion. I have written many reviews and tried to show the true ambience of this gem of a hotel, and I do not want to risk repeating myself. However, those who complain about the breakfast, or should I say ‘moan” here is a list, by memory (so possibly more) of the breakfast on offer every morning. Eaten on a rooftop terrace with spectacular views over the harbour, watching the sailing boats go in and out and the ferries arriving and departing. (Beautifully furnished inside area should it be raining) It is buffet style with a vast array of dishes for you to choose from: Tea, coffee, orange and grapefruit juice. Fresh croissants, fresh cake and Viennese whirls. 4 types of preserves such as fig, marmalade, jam and honey. Baguette slices, butter, margarine Muesli, coco pops, cornflakes. Choice of absolutely delicious toppings such as Greek yoghurt, soft chocolate, cherry syrup, and other amazing traditional fruit syrups Tinned fruit cocktail; fresh watermelon; fresh honeydew. Fresh beef tomatoes, cucumber, olives, fetta cheese, sliced cheese and ham. Hot dishes as follows: bacon, frankfurters, chopped omelette, fried eggs, boiled eggs As soon as your plates are finished an attentive waiter will clear it from your table, leaving you free to go back for as much as you like on a clean plate. And so if you are considering going to the Alkyon then book it before gets full. It is just far enough out of the town to be quiet enough; it is in easy walking distance of everything you need to be central. Its location is second to one. The Alkyon is not a luxurious massive corporate establishment like the Palaces etc, it is a family run Greek hotel and that is what some people seem to miss. When we first went we didn’t know anyone, now they are our true heartfelt friends, in fact they are family to us now. Maybe see you next year folks; we will be there as we have already booked.

We visited here with another couple from 20th September to 27th after picking this property because of the reviews on trip advisor as we have never visited Skiathos before. The rooms were fine with a hot shower of decent power (usual greek splashing on the floor) beds were very comfortable,fridge with water thats topped up every day,free safe,compimentary toiletries,a tv though we didn't watch so can't say what channels were available ,air con,our room viewed over the gardens and a maid service that was great as she was very effecient and always chatty & smiling. The pool area is set in lovely grounds with sunbeds always available & pool towels laid out. We were bed & breakfast for the week and although at first glance it looks small everything is there from yoghurts to pastries to bacon all set in a bright airy room with coffee from a machine (my wife & friend raved about the breakfast as they loved it) A couple of days in the week they offered a station doing pancakes and omlettes Koukanaries is basically a long road with hotels ,few bars and restaurants on it & the hotel is located at one end but all the amenities are within easy reach & we enjoyed all the restaurants & the bars which also show sports.The main beach is across the road through the nature reserve & is only a ten minute walk or you could walk the full length of the road to the far end of the beach,its a lovely beach with 2 beach bars ,sunbeds & watersports.Also by walking down the road there are two tracks off to the right which take you to either Mandraki ortwo other bays depending which you took.The walk is lovely through the pine forest & the beaches are totally unspoilt & really quiet. Travel to Skiathos main town is 2 Euros & the buses run a regular timetable taking around 1/2 hr depending on stops ,the town is well worth a visit and we even went back to do the Mama Mia open air theatre which is cheesy good fun as well as doing the "have to" pics at the end of the very short runway Whist we were there unfortunately Thomas Cook went bust & having read online horror stories at various hotels around europe I cannot praise the staff enough here as they were wonderful even helping to check if the airport transfers were still running. Would I recommend this hotel...yes as its a great place to stay whilst exploring this scenic island

My boyfriend and I have just returned from Skiathos and we were so pleased that we chose to stay at this hotel. It is 1 mile from the Airport, 5 minute walk to the port/town, we couldn't have asked for a better location. When we arrived we were given a bottle of water and a greek sweet to try, we were then taken to our room which had everything we needed for our stay. The best thing about it was the view, waking up to a view of the sea every day was perfect, and having breakfast bought to the room was new for us too - this included fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal, bread, cold meats and cheese, tea, coffee, juice. We were unfortunately the last Thomas Cook flight out to Skiathos so had trouble getting home again but the staff were so friendly, they had no problem with us staying an extra night - they also upgraded our room for the night and let us check out later than the usual 12pm check out. We really appreciated this as we were unsure how we were going to get home at this point. The pool area is very quiet and the views are amazing. I would 100% recommend this hotel, even after exploring the island of Skiathos we did not see a hotel we would have rather stayed in. If we were to return to Skiathos one day, we would definitely stay here again!

After initially reading the tripadvisor comments, post booking, I questioned proceeding with our holiday at this hotel and can only say that had we changed we would have missed out on a truly amazing service and hotel! I am not sure if some of the other comments were meant for a different hotel or expectations of a Greek hotel were being judged against London standard!? Our room was spacious, clean and furthermore cleaned with fresh towels and bedding every day, not to mention the aircon, which was at no extra charge! The location of the hotel provided breathtaking views of Skiathos town by night and great plane spotting by day, with the added bonus that the hills surrounding the hotel proved for some great early morning runs, allowing for us to return and indulge on the great breakfast buffet! The private beach was a great bonus with free sun beds, great snorkelling and beach combing for the pretty shells and stones, many hours which were spent with us being the only family on there! The hotel staff were friendly, personal and could not do more for us with any request we had, big or small always fulfilled with a smile; this was even proven with their eagerness and willingness to help out other guests even when struggling with breakfast equipment, for which Rich from Newton Abbott was most grateful for, so that he could get milk for his coffee! :) We would certainly recommend this hotel to others and return for our next trip to Skiathos!

Our normal hotel was not open this season, so we selected the Water as an alternative. We had seen criticism of the access, but knew where the taxi would drop us, knew the walk along the old harbour and our friend lives a little further up the steps, so no surprises. So for a little effort you get a location on there harbour with unquestionably the best view in Skiathos Town. The room is very clean and functional, the balcony and view superb. We found the location was excellent, the club next door was not open this season, and did not find the one next door too noisy, in fact when we got in on several nights it had already shut. Demitris met us by the barrier and helped with the cases, Covid has caused problems for everyone but he helped with kettle etc. We had a late flight so he let us use and shower in our room in the afternoon, a real help! There are a few glitches, but Dimitris seemed keen to resolve these, first was no wardrobe so clothes stay in suitcase and the second was deadlocking the escape doors. In summary, we would look to come back here next year.

We have been a number of times to the hotel Paradise, twice this year as well, june and september,we are never dissapointed. The food at Anastasias restrauant already mentioned many times by other visitors and guests at the hotel. The family at this hotel cannot do enough for their guests. The rooms are spotless even the maids are friendly taking pointers from the family no doubt. drinks round the bar chatting with others. Always get a good measure for the prices, my wife enjoyed the paradise cocktail even though she could not see what went in it. In june when we were there I slipped of the pavement going down town twisted my knee once again Kostas could not do enough taking me to the medical centre explaining to the staff what had happened, I was treated and am now ok. Every thing said about the Paradise is all true and we are set to return

We visited the Atrium in 2018 to have a look around for our wedding. We met with Elektra who gave us a tour and we knew immediately that the Atrium was where we wanted our wedding to take place. It offered everything we hoped for for our wedding - stunning views of the bay, great food options, a Greek taverna feel and an intimate feel. I liaised with Elektra over the next year and no question or query was too much trouble and believe me I asked quite a few of them.... All of my emails were responded to promptly and always ensured to put me at ease. We returned to Skiathos a week before the ceremony and met again with Elektra to finalise our menu and reception. Nothing was too much trouble and we left that meeting confident that everything was in hand and taken care of. We were told to just turn up! On the day of the wedding my partner arrived a couple of hours early to get ready and was pleased to see everything was in the process of being ready for us. He made a late request to add additional parasols to where we were having our ceremony as it was still really hot and we didn’t want our guests to suffer. This request was met with no issue and completed 30 minutes before I arrived. Our wedding reception was held in the Taverna and we had the Meat BBQ option. The food was amazing!! I wish I had the chance to have more of it. The salads and entrees were unbelievable and all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed it all. The waiting staff were exceptional and were very attentive without being intrusive. No glass was left empty and there were a few sore heads the next day because of it :-) Our wedding was supervised by Constantine and Elektra remained on hand to ensure we had everything we needed. Planning a wedding over email can be quite stressful and a lot of requests were met with ‘we can talk about that when you get to the island!’. In the UK, you are used to having to plan everything months/years in advance- that just isn’t the case in Greece. This left me quite nervous that we wouldn’t have the time to finalise everything the week before the wedding but I shouldn’t have worried - Elektra and her team had it all covered. Elektra and her team provided us with the wedding we dreamt of and everything on the day went seamlessly. It was the most perfect day and we wish that we could do it all again. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Atrium as a wedding venue to any prospective brides. You will truly be in the best hands.

The Core Luxury Suites are located on a small hill opposite of Skiathos Old Town. 5 minutes from the airport. Our host picked us up at the airport and so everything was done quickly. It is a wonderful place to relax and unwind. But...If you want you can also play tennis on the hotel's own court or take a walk through the “hills“ or to the near located Beaches. Ok...there is a classic Hotel nearby. But was not disturbing. The suites offer a fabulous view of Skiathos city. The aircraft landings, viewing from the terrace, are spectacular. They do not bother us either ... on the contrary we were looking forward to every plane. Host Gregory very accommodating and really nice. Breakfast was varied and more than plentiful. On extra wishes was received. The apartments are on modern new luxury standard and leave nothing to be desired. We enjoyed, our much too short vacation and will be back soon. Efcharisto 😘

These apartments are perfect. They are owned by the loveliest family who are willing to help if you have any questions about the area. When we arrived the owner offered to carry our luggage up the stairs and pointed out some key travel spots. We also got a ride back to the airport to save us on a taxi which was very kind! The room was cleaned every day and had plenty of storage and WiFi, it was just what we needed for a 4 night stay. The location couldn't have been better, in the heart of Skiathos town but not too close to the noise, just up the road. There is a bus stop very close by which takes you to the west beaches and the port is not even a 10 minute walk away, down the main street. The airport is a 10 minute drive or so. All in all an excellent experience and we would come back here! Thank you to all the staff for such a great stay xx

I am well travelled and seldom do I leave negative reviews and always try to see the good in everything but I was very disappointed with my stay here :( Upon arrival we felt the photographs we''d seen did not represent the hotel accurately. The impression we got was that it was more towards high end, hence why we booked it, but there was nothing in the hotel to reflect this. Our thoughts were echoed by a few guests staying at the same time. Images make you believe you are a short distance from the town, it fails to show the vast countryside in-between the hotel and town. Although within walking distance or a 5 minute taxi ride, we felt secluded with nothing at all around us. A car/quad is a must to get around. It is located at the top of a very steep hill which our quad even struggled with so I wouldn't recommend walking back up it. The hotel has a car which can take you down and they seemed to encourage using that service rather than the islands taxis but we later found out we were being charged 10 euros for a 6 euro taxi ride. We had specifically asked for a room with a view and had been assured we had this, only to find we looked onto a childs play area. We asked to be moved but this could not be accommodated. Breakfast each morning was cold and empty plates not replenished. Food from the pool bar was frankly unappetising and drinks expensive, but we had no choice as we were too far from the restaurants to just go and grab a snack. The room was very dark but it was clean with a nice hot shower, clean linen everyday and a good powerful air-con system. However, the bathroom needed some maintenance as the seal was broken on the shower and mould in the corner of the shower tray and there was no key for the safety deposit box. It is a shame that I am leaving such a negative review but feel potential guests should have an honest view before booking. As with anything, I'd advise to read all reviews and make your own mind up. I wouldn't stay here again but I would certainly recommend their sister hotel, La Piscine Art which I visited. PS get the hotel to collect you from the airport on arrival to avoid queues! Its worth paying the extra. There are only 20 taxis on the island and this was chaotic!

Giannis and Martha operate a lovely budget pension above the port and tourist center, but not so far above that even someone like me with mobility issues has trouble getting there for restaurants and sight-seeing. The room was immaculate and, while not fancy, comes with all with all the amenities you will need, including a fridge, TV, good, quiet air-conditioning and storage space. Views over Skiathos Town are fabulous from room balconies and even better from the terrace. Breakfast was good coffee, bread and jam, and cake - I think there was also some cheese on offer -- delicious and enjoyed in a lovely setting. Giannis picked us up at the airport and Martha drove us to the ferry. Will certainly stay here again.

We spent one weeke in this pension. The room was with basic facilities but pretty spacious and clean. We also had a small balcony. The staff was nice especially Eleni who was always smiling and welcoming well the customers. Location was also 5 mins on foot from the centre. Recommended.

Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to Anya and Annie at Mimoza Studios for looking after us so well when our flight was cancelled due to a hurricane. Our first time in Skiathos and almost the whole week was spoiled by hurricane Zorba. Torrential rain, gale force winds, dark, cold and damp, it was not the holiday we had so looked forward to. When our return flight was cancelled and we were stuck at the airport, having been told (incorrectly, as it turned out) that we couldn't return to our apartment, Anya and her English friend Annie opened their doors to about 20 of us who were all flight only customers of Thomas Cook. The Mimoza had actually just closed for the end of the season, but they opened up, welcomed us all in and made sure everyone was comfortable and warm. Annie also went out of her way the next day to find out for us what was going on and when our return flight had been rescheduled for, enabling us all to grab a couple of hours in the sunshine which had finally returned after eluding us all week. I can't thank them enough for their hospitality, good humour and reassurance to a bunch of tired, stressed and cold, damp holiday makers in our time of need. THANK YOU so much, ladies, for everything you did for us xxx

We booked the room through a travel agency called Grecos Travel and stayed there for 5 nights. First of all, even though we asked for a double bed (because we are a couple) and the travel agency said they had booked a with a double bed, we got two sigle beds side by side. When we confronted the receptionist for the bed he said that the maids didn't had time to make it look like a double bed(what kind of management is this??). The service was really bad. We had to carry our luggage 3 floors by ourselves. There was no elevato. The room was small with thin walls so we could hear everything that was happening in other rooms(we were lucky though and our neighbors weren't noisy at night). It wasn't very clean (which is very important nowadays especially because of the covid). The shower didn't have a curtain so when you took a shower the water was all over the place. The room didn't have a phone, the sheets were never changed and the room curtains were dirty and unhinged on one side. Lastly one day we had asked them to clean our room and when we came back it smelled bad, like they had used the same water to mop the entire hotel. The only reason we stayed there for our entire vacation was the location, 5' from town center. All an all bad accommodation. Wouldn't recommend!!!
