I would highly recommend this hotel for the closeness to the beach you can catch the last rays of the day hehehe. The hotels rooms are very basic, twin beds, wardrobe, dressing table, TV and bathroom but in my eyes what more do you need??? The rooms were cleaned every day but bear in mind we were there the last week of the season so I think there were only 5 couples left in the hotel, so not many to clean! The hotel restaurant we can not fault for price or taste! All the meat dishes we tried were just melted in your mouth.
There are a couple of tavernas on the beach I would recommend the Blue Beach!! Very nice service and cheap!
There is also a shop (Alpha) at the end of the track that sells everything you'll need! If your planning on buying booze for a little tipple before you hit the town, go to the Discount Store around bus stop 3 or 4 you will see it en route that is there Asda equivalent and they have vodka and gin for 5.95 EURO's each!!!
There had been a down pour before we arrived and the mozzies went wild on me! Top tip if this does happen get some citronella from Alpha, also antihistamines and some anti inflammatory cream they worked a treat on me you can only buy these at the Pharmacy.
If you don’t know where to go and eat out ask the people. We met the friendliest people in Skiathos everyone is happy to help!
We would recommend the Green Park Taverna it’s at bus stop 16! It’s down a track at the side of Jimmy's Pizza! Marvelous Food! And CHEAP!
Also if you go into the town the street food is great! Top Tip if you walk past the main strip and take your next right there is a spit roast cooking right on the side of the street! Try the meat it falls off the bone! I've have attached a picture so you know what your looking for!
We rented a quad bike while we were there! AMAZING! There are lots of dirt tracks in Skiathos and these are the roads to be on if you want to see the views! They have bikes, quads and Suzuki's. Ours was 20 euro’s a day but it maybe more in peak season! This was from the Victoria at bus stop 19 if you’re staying at Troulos bay hotel it’s quicker to walk here don’t bother with the bus! Warning there are no paths at the sides of the road!!
And finally a trip to the Airport is a MUST!! Standing on the end of that run way as a plane comes in is GREAT. Speak to your rep or a trip to an internet café or just nip in the airport and check the arrival times or you could be there all day waiting! Watching a video is nothing compared to being there!
Everyone should have a trip to Skiathos!! Stick with bed and breakfast or self catering because there is so much on offer you will want to travel round!
