Our trip was with Thomas Cook
Skiathos Airport to Skiathos Port
From the airport to Skiathos port was very quick and pain free, with two stops on the way to the port for dropping guests off at accommodation took 15 minutes maximum. We were dropped off at a Taverna by the port to await the arrival of the ferry/hydrafoil/catermeran - the ferry boat was easy to spot (biggest boat there!!). Transferring onto the ferry was painless with a welcome party to greet us on the other side and transfer us to the accommodation.
The Resort of Skopeos Town
The main area of the port is flat with many tavernas and shops and supermarkets - the tavernas had a variety of choices of meals from burgers, to mousakka to sheeps' head (the choice was yours!!). There were a few hotels on the flat, but, most of the town was up a hill which would not be good for people with walking problems or mobility problems, the streets leading up the hill were cobbled and winding (olde world charm) filled with shops selling clothes, trinkets and sweets/cakes.
The Ionia Hotel
What a beautiful enchanted place! So quiet and beautiful! The staff were excellent, nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was cleaned everyday. The rooms were of an excellent standard. For views of the sea/countryside I would recommend a high floor room. Good decor, music but not too loud. Continental breakfast including Greek yogurt. As a previous guest has mentioned - lookout for Yannis's woodwork - amazing!!!! Personally I found the price of the drinks there ok.
Mamma Mia trip
this was a really good trip and well worth it, we went to the chapel and the 200 steps, kastani beach and parnormos beach amoungst other places.
ALL TOGETHER AN EXCELLENT HOLIDAY, WE WILL BE GOING AGAIN!!!!!!
