We arrived in early May just as the hotel,was opening for the season and the final touches were taking place. This did not however affect the standards of service or the super quality of this lovely hotel. Rooms are comfortable and almost all have sea views across the bay. We had a family room with the main bed up on a mezzanine floor, which I personally didn't like as the raised area was only just bigger than the bed and if you lost your sense of direction getting up in the night, you could fall down the stairs!
Food was excellent and we didn't have a bad meal. As we were on half board breakfast was an extensive buffet which included hot (lukewarm really!) 'english breakfast' offerings as well as a wide continental selection. The evening buffet was equally large and well cooked with a good choice of salads. If we wanted lunch, the pool bar served outstanding food at surprisingly reasonable prices and the drinks were not outrageous.
One evening there was a torrential thunderstorm as we were sitting down for our evening meal. Even though water was running down the middle of the restaurant, the staff calmly moved tables aside to avoid the deluge and continued serving, drinks being brought from the bar by a waiter with an umbrella - it was like a scene from a carry on film (Greek style).
Set on a beautiful bay with its own private beach, close to the lovely town of Skiathos, this has got to be the best location on the island. Taxis to town take 5-10 minutes, buses 15 minutes, walking takes about half an hour, although care needs to be taken as pavements are narrow. See review by Tracey m who broke her foot walking back from town whilst we were there.
We will definitely becoming back.
