“Great hotel fantastic location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

I stayed here with my husband and was a bit Worried after reading some of the bad reviews but when we arrive all the worries disappear it was a perfect hotel location. We had room 304 and andview from the room was Breathtaking. The room was a bit basic but fine the bath room was great it looked fairly new and had a glass wall where the shower was. All the stuff were very helpful and friendly and always there for you. You had some lovely times in the evening by the pool bar And panos was a great bar man who made us some great cocktails best we have ever tasted, he was so passionate about making the cocktails which I think make them taste even better. Dana who worked in the bar and restaurant was so lovely and really took the time to make you feel welcome she also did us some great cocktails. For us I think panos and Dana made our holiday even more special. We will definitely go back and would highly recommend anyone who wants a great holiday and a great location to stay at the Plaza.

A little bit about the cost of things on the island on average if you had a beer at its about three euro cocktails Eight euro. Typical dinner in the evening with the one main meal and maybe a starter and caress of wine was about €40 If you had a sandwich lunch at the pool or by the sea it was about four euro each. Dinners I think are a bit more.expensive than England.

Where do I start with this hotel? Firstly, you are met by a great reception team who are welcoming and helpful.

The rooms are spotlessly clean, although in need of refurbishment in places.

I would particularly like to mention the bar staff Panos and Dana - what a great team! You must try one of Panos' cocktails - not only does he prepare the best cocktails on the island but he will tailor make them to your personal taste! I must also mention Zuzana with whom I enjoyed many great chats and like all the staff such as Angela and Pavlos at breakfast, were all extremely friendly and accommodating.

I consider ALL the staff to be a great asset to this hotel.

Lastly, there are great tavernas such as the kanapitsa taverna and Johnny's but I never experienced a bad meal anywhere I ate. Don't miss out on the water taxi to Skiathos town - a great way to travel to town.

I hope to return again next year for my third visit!

My wife and I just come back from the Plaza in Skiathos. Although the hotel is a little dated the staff are absolutely fabulous particularly the bartender called Panos And his wife to be Dana , And also in the small restaurant in the young woman" Angela, Was just as friendly. If you want just a nice relaxing holiday with a fantastic pool ! a Beautiful Beach can't go far wrong with this hotel. And view from the hotel is just breathtaking. The only slight downside is the Wi-Fi should be in all the rooms by now. And it should be free. Cheers phil.

Having returned to the island after getting married here was very overwhelming. We stayed at Agia Paraskevi which was quite busy. We chose the Plaza for the location as Kanapista Taverna was where we had our wedding reception. We found the hotel very good and most days we had the pool to ourselves due to the low season. We were treated as individuals and ALL the staff made us feel very welcome. The hotel manager Angelo was made sure we had all we needed and the most memorable members were Dana and Panos who made a good team at the pool bar and kept us entertained. We will definately return next year and possibly this September too! Would highly recommend the Plaza.

I recently had a wonderful stay on Skaithos for a friends wedding and although i knew very few people at the wedding, the staff at the Plaza made sure i felt very very welcome during my stay. The wedding was great, but my favorite times of my trip were sitting at the pool bar where the fantastic staff there looked after me impeccably. I have already made sure lots of friend visit the bar when they stay there as it was the highlight of my trip. Looking forward to seeing them again soon.

Room Tip: really do ask for a sea view!!

Very friendly staff in hotel. We went at very quiet time of year (10-17 May) and very few guests in hotel so the staff were not over-worked, but we were impressed by how friendly and helpful they were. Room was large and clean, partial sea view. Lovely white towels changed every day. Breakfast really good, dining room overlooked the sea and pool. Pool/pool area clean and well kept. Hotel taverna (separate from dining room) offered special 5 course menus for 14 or 18 euros which was really good quality and value. Also got discount in hotel taverna if staying at the Plaza, though not sure if this discount applied to the 14 or 18 euro menu. Also served lovely Greek salads there. Hotel is a 10/15 minute from the main road, from where regular buses could be caught to Skiathos Town (although we usually hopped in a taxi as we were offered cut price fairs - as buses not so frequent in mid May, the taxis were touting for business!). Hotel is 2 min. Walk from Kanapitsa beach - hardly another person in sight when we were there and beach taverna not then open. There is a little boat which travels to/from Skiathos Town on fairly regular basis,although not operational when we were there as two few people to make it worthwhile. Skiathos Town has a wealth of really good restaurants,our favourites were 1901 and The FInal Step (owned and ran by a Scottish lady). The Windmill resturant was another favourite, although not open whilst we were there (we ate there last September). Wonderful holiday - can' wait to go back again. Skiathos is a lovely island and has a lot of repeat visitors. The Town Walk event was great - the guide was a Welshman called Michael who was extremely knowledgeable about the town and even took us back to his house afterwards which was a fabulous gesture. See you again Skiathos!

Have just returned from a great week in Skiathos. What a beautiful Island and lovely happy helpful people. We stayed at The Plaza Hotel and couldn't have been happier. Rooms cleaned each day with lovely fresh bedding and white towels. Our bathroom was a joy with lovely hot water. The balcony looked down to the beach 1 min walk and over to the main town which was only 10 mins on the water taxi. Great breakfast at the top of the hotel and we ate in the resturant which was 1st class. The walk to the bus stop was rather long with a step hill (not too easy if you are not used to walking) Angelo the manager was always there to help and all his staff had been there many years. Will def. go back. Kanapitsa beach best on Island.

Room Tip: All rooms at the front would have a great view.
