We return to this hotel every time now, having being coming to Skiathos for 13 years and staying in various places on the island until we stayed at the Alkyon 3 years ago for the first time. Since then we stay every June and September at the Alkyon. There is no better place to stay for the friendliest staff, best position on the island, great roof top dining area, so convenient to the shops, bus station, busy town center and lovely bars and restaurants, as well as the old and new port. It is so easy to get to the lovely beaches, by water taxi or bus, and we found that when we used to stay near a lovely beach we were always wanting to come into Skiathos town centre. So the position of the hotel is perfect! All the local people we have met have been so friendly and nice wherever we have stayed but the family that own the Alkyon and their staff are absolutely the lovliest people you can imagine. People don't tend to stay in their hotel room much when on holiday, only sleeping, and the beds are really comfortable with the softest white sheets ever. The rooms are cleaned every day and lovely new towels daily as well. The two barmen were great at making cocktails. and were always so helpful, and always making us laugh. We have made some really good friends by staying at the Alkyon. The evening meals, buffet style, and as much as you want were also excellent. There is a well stocked library where guests can leave their books which they have read, and take another etc and the swimming pool is just the right size. From the receptionist, bar staff, waiters, laundry staff, chef, and chamber maids, you couldn't wish for more happy and helpful people.
We find each room or floor has its own benifits, so we do not mind which room we get.
