“Only one issue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

The rooms are very nice and clean (deluxe room). Tasteful decor and beautiful views. The breakfast was good and the staff where friendly. There are quite a few stairs however it didn’t bother us, but perhaps for someone with mobility problems this might be an issue.

On the 3rd night, whilst taking a shower, the water started to turn yellowish brown (as a result my towel also turned brown). The lady at the reception was not very helpful. A complete lack of care. We called three times to get an explanation and received no apology. She suggested we use the showers situated by the pool, AFTER I had asked how I was supposed to wash off the dirt. I can understand sometimes small hotels can face difficulties however their attitude was terrible. If she was at least apologetic, shown some concern or even offered us complimentary drinks we wouldn’t have been so upset, it ruined our entire evening. Apart from this issue the hotel was lovely.

If I went back to Skiathos, which I probably will, I would probably stay closer to the town centre.

We have stayed here for 3 years running. The hotel staff welcome you warmly and make you feel like nothing is any trouble. The rooms are bright and cheerful and cleaned to a high standard. There is a great pool where you can totally chill out, never feeling like you are swamped by people or fighting to get a sun bed. The views are gorgeous and can be seen from much of the hotel. Monica and Nicos work so hard but always have time to chat and help you to organise things that you want to do.

If you are going to Skiathos this is the place to stay, it's a real gem and once you have stayed there you won't want to stay anywhere else. We will be going back again next year!

Room Tip: All the rooms we have stayed in have been lovely.

It's clean, cosy and delicate, with "the little extra".
Really good service, always with a nice smile.
The food is also really good.
Mabye the best we ever been to in Greece.
There weren't any spa there, but the outarea were so beautiful, and the chairs were so comfy, and there even were a hammock there!

We had a lovely fortnight staying at this hotel. Monica and all the staff were extremely friendly and attentive - couldn't fault them. We had an executive room with great sea view from spacious balcony. The room was cleaned every day and was spotless. Breakfast was very enjoyable with a wide choice for most tastes and the restaurant in the evening was also excellent.
If we ever return to Skiathos we would certainly stay here again.

my husband and I spent 6 days in July in this hotel and I can say that we had a great time really and one of the best vacations ever!we booked a deluxe room since we needed more comfort because of my pregnancy and we weren't disappointed at all!actually, the room was daily cleaned and our towels changed.the staff is really friendly and helpful and breakfast is satisfying enough!what i should mention is that we loved the decoration and the furnishings as well as the lightning of the room!as for the view of our balcony, the pictures can speak for themselves...

Room Tip: all the rooms have sea view!

We loved it!
Our hosts Nick & Monica were amazing, as well as the rest of the staff.
We had a beautiful newly decorated room with sea view, it was clean and crisp. The French style doors opened out to the balcony expanding the room.
The bed was very confortable, quite and efficient air conditionning.
Breakfast is complete and excellent, and for dinner, the hotel restaurant "The View" did not dissapoint. Both meals are taken on the beautiful terrace.
Everything here was informal, and quite personal. A sence of belonging occurred immediately at the threshold of the doorway to the reception. I suspect the other guests felt the same, as we made freinds with so many, so easily.
If you want to travel to and fro on Skiathos by bus, Magic is situated on stop no 16 Pareskevi, which is almost in the middle between the popular beaches and Skiathos town. Buses are 10 minutes apart or, you could take a super-sonic taxi ride.
If you want to stay put, the aforementionned pool area will offer relaxation, also there are restuarants and a general store steps away. Pareskevi beach is an 8 minute walk from door to lounge chair.
What we did not like about the hotel was the fact that... we eventually had to leave.

I strongly recommed this Hotel.

Just returned from a lovely stay at Magic Hotel. Nikos and Monica were the perfect hosts and all of the staff couldn't have worked harder to make us welcome. The rooms were clean and comfortable, despite the steps - at least we came back a little fitter than at the start of our break.
Breakfast is fresh, varied and served on the beautiful terrace.
The pool was quiet for us (at the end of August) and very relaxing. We would certainly recommend this hotel to others.
