stayed at Socrates twice, both times it was excellent most accommodation of this type in Greece is basic, but when you go to Skala all you need is some where to crash at night (and in the hot afternoons) the staff are warm and friendly as all people in Skala are, we have never been disappointed with any accommodation in...

Been coming to Skala since 1994 and this was our second year staying at these studios although we have frequented the taverna below many times in the past and know the family fairly well. The apartment we stayed in was basic but very clean and the location is good ,near to the beach and centre of the village. I wouldn't... More

Typically Greek, basic but well maintained/presented hotel. Only a few rooms but Fantastic location right in the heart of the resort. Resort caters for all ages and tastes. Some of the best Greek quisine we have ever had throughout the resort, but the Socrates traditional meals were by far the best. Free use of pool 10 yards from you front... More

On arrival my wife and I were allocated room 1, which was a large room with a lovely balcony. At first we detected a large black patch in the bathroom which after the first day began to smell. It smelt so bad that we asked our Rep Robert if he could look into the problem and as soon as it... More

Back from a week in relaxing week in Skala. Typical basic Greek studio which is above the restaurant but this did not disturb us. Sheets and towels changed once midway through the week. Studio is less than 5 minutes from beach. Ate at restaurant below which serves lovely home made food. Would highly recommend a visit to this resort

So frightened that by writing this we won't be able to book again in the future. A wonderful typically Greek, family run apartment block and restaurant. The family welcome everybody in the taverna from early evening until the restaurant is empty. A carefully selected menu which is complimented by the Daily Specials. No pre-cooking here - all made fresh on... More

Spacious room which was cleaned twice a week. It was cleaned throughly with sheets changed and bins emptied. Fantastic location as within five minutes of the beach and high street. Not to mention the fantastic restaurant below which we visited four times!! Would definitely recommend Skala and socrates for a quiet, hot and lovely holiday.
