We had a wonderful week at Skopelos Holidays and Spa Hotel in the beginning July.
We visit Skopelos almost every summer, and this was our second time at this hotel. The hotel consists of rooms, suits, and a number of bungalows with private pools. We were so lucky to be upgraded to a bungalow with private pool, and were just delighted of this great hospitality from the hotel. It is just like having your own house and garden fully equipped with lovely garden furniture etc. (We stayed in a bungalow at our first stay as well).
The hotel and the rooms are so clean and tidy, and they change towels every day and bed sheets very often.
We had the breakfast included which was a huge buffet, with numerous delicious choices, and there were several new dishes every morning. Perhaps not the best if you are on a diet, but if you are enjoying great food you have come to the right place.
All the staff members are just so friendly, polite and services minded. And I really got that proved quite a bit extra as I left my purse in the Taxi on the way home from town one night. It was after midnight, but still “all” the hotel staff including the manager, Haroula Kairi, went out of their way to help me, and luckily with all this help at several levels, combined with a couple of other lucky coincidences and honest people, I got my purse with everything in it back.
The hotel also got a Spa department which we did not visit this time, but we did a couple of years ago, and it really is to recommend.
The hotel is located about a kilometer from town, and about 3 kilometers from Stafilios the closest beach. There is a nice dirt road through the forest and hill behind the hotel, so we walked back and forth to the beach every day. That suited us well, and this year we did not hire a car. It is a lot of nice paths and roads for morning running as well. We will definitely return!
