The best pool bar in Skala

Lovely pool with onsite food and drinks served by their staff all day. Great sunbeds with little tables for your drinks and food. Clean toilets and showers onsite. Comfortable seating areas away from the pool for more formal eating if you don't want to eat by the pool. The staff are really friendly... read more

Looked a lovely place and décor was lovely but food poorly cooked. Sent chicken kebabs back twice as they were pink. Management not interested. Didn't eat it and wouldn't return.

We first visited Pikiona in June 2013 and really enjoyed it. Sadly the last two times we've been to Skala (this time from 10 September) it has closed for the season. What a shame as there are still lots of people who are around who need to eat.

Take your swimsuit and cool off in their fab pool before enjoying a cool carafe of wine and a tasty dish fro the nice menu. The chillout music plays in the background Ibiza style from the round pool bar. Staff are friendly and theres loads of choice of places to sit... don't pass this one by, its on the bottom... More

We only had drinks here whilst listening to a great group - Farhan from the UK it was a great evening. There were a number of acts performing during the week, some of which sounded pretty good. Great place to have a drink and listen to some live music.

Absolutely loved this place and came here nearly every night. They serve lovely cocktails and we especially enjoyed the Gin and blackberry cocktail ' Bramble' and the cucumber Martinis. We saw 3 live acts over the week ,ending our final night with the band' Singapore Strings' who were absolutely brilliant and covered a wide range of music for all ages... More

Live music some of which was decidedly dodgy, waitresses need to smile and be a bit more cheerful, cocktails were good and reasonably priced.

Excellent food and great music, particularly The Singapore Strings! Lindy the PR lady is excellent and the food is spectacular. They have a number of different bands and singers on through the day and evening. The chef works his socks off and produces amazing food, well worth a visit.
