I have just got back from a fantastic week staying at The Skiathos Palace Hotel. From the moment we arrived at The Skiathos Palace without exception all staff could not do enough for us. I do not think I have ever stayed in such a friendly welcoming hotel. The atmosphere amongst staff seemed to pass to all guests. On arrival we were given a free upgrade to a 'modern' room, this room was clean, spacious and comfortable, we had a fantastic view of the beach and sea. Absolutely no complaints about the food, it was varied, fresh and delicious. The hotel lay on a shuttle to Skiathos Town, which incidently needs to be explored in both day time and evening as it has a completely different feel. The local bus runs regularly and you soon get to know the route into town seeing as it is one road, the whole way into town you get a fantastic and varied views of different parts of the coast. There is also a shuttle to the nearest beach, I must say we didn't take this but walked down the steps and up again at the end of the day. The hotel has a small private pretty beach, but Koukounaries beach is the same distance away, and absolutely beautiful, Koukounaries beach has some water sports too (not that we did water sports - just watched). All of Skiathos appears extremely clean. There are some bars and restaurants within walking distance to The Skiathos Palace, we ate lunch most days at a bar called Augusterra, the owner Dino is very welcoming and they do lovely cocktails. Also you can't go to Skiathos without taking a boat trip, mama mia is the theme on most of the boat trips as it was filmed in Skiathos and Skoploles, the church from mama mia is a must see. I will definately be returning to this hotel in the future.
