“Brilliant staff and really nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2011

The apartments are standard and you get everything you need, I suggest you buy the air con because when we went in August it was very hot. I had a top floor apartment overlooking the pool which was perfect. The pool area is well mainted, very clean and big enough for the amount of guests.
The staff are fantastic. Nikos and Koula will make your stay really enjoyable, and will look after you with whatever you need. They put on a greek night with a BBQ every Tuesday.
The bar is open late, but it's not as noisy as some people make out. Guests gather there at night and have a chat and a few drinks, its not a party bar.
The area is small and quiet, you have 4 tavernas within the area which are all nice, especially Rose Garden and Porta Rossa. If you turn right out of yalis there is a really nice bakery, to buy a sandwich, cakes etc. You can get a bus to any where along the coast which we used to try different tavernas in different areas, you can also get the water taxi from Achladies beach into Skiathos town for 2.50 euro one way.
Achladies beach is really nice, the water is very clear with plenty of fish to see so make sure you take your snorkel, and further down the beach there is water sports. The sun loungers on the beach are about 7 euro.

What a lovely place, been coming to Skiathos for a number of year and this is one the best places to stay. The studios are always very clean with basic facilites-bathroom with shower, basic cooking facilities-2 ring hob,small kettle & fridge and air conditioning.. Basic, but arnt they all on the greek islands.. Nice sized balcony with couple of chairs and a table. The bar and pool area is lovely and the owners Nikos and Koula are the nicest friendliest couple you will ever meet, they will make you feel very welcome. There are 3 local supermarkets and a bakery which is open 6:30am til midnight every day and has wonderful fresh baked bread,cakes and pastries. Would recommend you try it. Skiathos is a lovely little island, with plenty of beaches to explore.. Would recommend Skiathos to anybody looking for a nice relaxing break.

We booked a twin bedded room through Olympic Holidays (as advertised in their brochure). We were allocated the smallest room (13) that could not even accommodate twin beds ! The owners were nice people and other facilties (pool & bar etc. ) were quite good. But we didn't get what we paid for. The air conditioning was not functioning in any of the rooms ! On the second day of our holiday we moved. Whilst we were given upgraded accommodation with no extra charge we had to pay for our own transport to a) inspect the alternative accommodation and b) return, pack and transfer. This took up 4 hours of our holiday time! We have been in correspondence with Olympic since returning and they state "we do regret that this had a double bed and this did not suit your requirements / preferences". ! We suggest Olympic should sell what they say in their brochure and not mis-lead clients. We could have been allocated any other room and, no doubt, this would have been OK.

Room Tip: Hope you do not get Room 13 !

I stayed at the Yalis Studios in Skiathos for two weeks with my boyfriend. The apartments are very basic but that it what we expected. The bar and pool area were lovely and the owners Nikos and Koula were the nicest friendliest couple you will ever meet They made us feel really welcome.

This was our 4th stay in Skiathos and we would stay here again. Food was lovely, lively bar every evening and Nikos will just keep you laughing. Looks a bit like Borat and just as funny.

Beach was a 5 minute walk, shops just round the corner with a lovely bakery and also short walk to bus stops and water taxi. Missing it already and will return next year.

Love you Nikos and Koula!

Room Tip: If you would prefer less noise in the evening try and get a room at the back not facing the pool are...

We stayed at the Yialis 1st week in Sept 2011 in room no.1 which was a twin bedded studio with an inland view & was road facing. The studio was nice & clean with basic facilites-bathroom with shower,basic cooking facilities-2 ring hob,small kettle & fridge and air conditioning. Nice sized balcony with couple of chairs and a table. Fantastic pool/bar area,very relaxing with lovely well tended gardens. We never experienced and problems with road traffic noise or loud music from the bar. There are 3 x local supermarkets and a bakery/coffee shop which is open 6:30am til midnight every day and has wonderful fresh baked bread,cakes and pastries. 2 mins walk to a lovely clean beach where a water taxi operates to Skiathos town from 9:15am to 11pm every day. There's also a bus stop directly across the road and the buses run until 1 am. There are 3 x beach Tavernas and a couple of local restaurants,our favourite restaurant was the Porto Rossa which is across the road from the Yialis. We can highly recommend the Yialis,we probably won't return but this is only due to the fact that we like to try different places. We loved the Yialis. Enjoy !!

These apartments are only 2 star because the studios are basic with very little in them but the pool area and bar are lovely. There is a lovely relaxed atmosphere in the place and the owners are lovely people. Nicos is the main man at the bar and he is very friendly and the bar is perfect for a few drinks when you come back from town at night. Our studio was quite near the bar in a chalet type building and the noise of the bar was not too loud but I could hear the music in the back ground (in a nice way) while going to sleep. The beach is about 3 minutes away down a slope and it is lovely and clean with a couple of tavernas and a great water taxi to town for €2.50. Go, you can't but enjoy it.

The apartments has their advantages and disadvantages....

The pool and outside area was attractive and the rooms were clean (towels and bedding changed and bins emptied frequently etc). In a good location- near bus stop and a short walk to Achladies beach (a few restaurants on here too). Three supermarkets and a bakery nearby. The owners were very friendly and helpful, the bar was a nice area to relax in (music/football usually on, also hosts a greek night).

However, the rooms were very basic (yes, I know it's Greece!). You couldn't cook much as the rooms only had two hobs a small noisy fridge/freezer and a few cooking implements. The shower 'cubicle' consisted of a curtain that covered the shower and toilet area. Our room faced the road which was noisy well into the night so made it difficult to sleep.
