“Another amazing Apollon stay!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2011

This is our 2nd time at the Apollon and we were not by any means dissapointed, actually we were happily surprised that now Dounia delivers a yummy breakfast to start the day -on Sundays she provides a Champagne breakfast with salmon ,caviar,breads and lots of other yummy eats!
Dounia and Captain are the most delightful hosts... nothing is a problem!
Rooms are basic but clean with self catering facilities and wonderful views,great pillows by theway! however once tasted the Captains cooking , you will not need the kitchen area...his cooking is amazing !
A must try is his scumptious greek salad, steaks,saganakis I could go on.
Location of Villa is perfect -:
Amazing views, local bus stop (9), water taxi,( a wonderful way to go to town),beautiful pool, great beach.
Skiathos town is magical offering loads of great places to eat.... try 'Georges' barbeque at the top of the cushion steps, 'Asprolitheos' by the school, there are so many to choose from. However you cannot go past the Captains home cooking... put your order in and he will cook whatever you fancy!
I would just like to say a great big thank you to Captain and Dounia for their wonderful hospitality and the many hours of chat and discussions( too late into the night sometimes!!)
P.S .and of course his wonderful Plymouth Gin and tonic !!
We hpoe to return next year xx

First time to Skiathos Villa Apollon suberb prefectly positioned, Dounia and Captain made us so welcome, pool lovely & warm, air conditioned room very comfortable & cleaned every day with lovely big balcony overlooking the bay. We particularly enjoyed eating by the pool most days, either Dounia's lovely breakfasts or the excellent food cooked by Captain in the evenings on his spaceship BBQ. My area of expertise was the greek coffee in the mornings (!). We loved taking the water taxi from the nearby lovely beach to Sliathos and hired a car to go "off raod" to explore the beautiful beaches on the north of the Island.

Our family of five stayed at Villa Apollon for 13 nights> the hotel was beautifully kept! The location was spectacular! The Captain and Dounia were wonderful and very warm hosts, the food was the best on the island> Our two young children made many friends and had tons of fun! we would reccommend this hotel to anyone who wants a home away from home, we will definately return!!

We have been fortunate enough to visit the beautiful island of Skiathos many times over the years but this was our first stay at Villa Apollon and we can only praise the location, accommodation and hospitality of Dounia and the Captain. The self-catering apartments 'tick all the boxes' and the view is breathtaking. A huge plus is the beach opposite and the half-hourly water-taxi into Skiathos town as space on the buses become very limited in the evening and taxis sparse. We can highly recommend staying at Villa Apollon and is suitable for all ages.

Captain & Dounia were great host, and I loved my daily ice creams, and the food cooked on Captain's BBQ. A Great beach opposite for my water sports including a good water taxi into Skiathos town every half hour.

We will be back!!!

This was our first visit to Skiathos and Villa Apollon. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome by Dounia and Captain. A glass of wine by the pool set the scene for our entire stay. Myself and partner had a studio - very spacious with wonderful views from the balcony over the bay. Air conditioning, safe, hair dryer, fridge, even an ironing board in the room meant we had everything we needed to hand. Comfortable bed gave a great night's sleep after all that lazing by the pool or at the beach.
Dounia and Captain are great hosts and their staff are second to none. Our room was cleaned every day, towels and linen changed frequently, even my shoes lined up in a neat row for me!
The swimming pool area is also spotlessly clean with comfortable sun loungers and clean towels every morning.
We ate quite often at the Villa Apollon and found the food good. If I have one gripe, Captain, it's that you never made me that Greek coffee!!!!!
The bus stop is just outside the gate and a short walk takes you to the beach and the brilliant water taxi to Skiathos town. €2.50 each way per person and so worth it. If you don't fancy the walk back up the hill on the way home - take a taxi from the town centre.
What more can I say? We're already planning our next visit. If you're looking for a comfortable, friendly place to stay - don't look any further than Villa Apollon and Dounia and Captain.
