We had an amazing week. Very close to Skala, but wouldn't recommend to anybody who would struggle walking up a big hill. The cleanliness was fantastic and the staff couldn't be more lovely. Only complaint is that the Pool bar was ridiculously expensive, so avoid if possible and you have to pay for air con, (45 euro pw) although, we did manage without. Wifi is available but only in the lounging area for 8 euro. The hotel is beautifully surrounded with flowers and the pool is a very good temperature. We got this hotel on a late deal, making it a great bargain. If you can afford it, I would recommend getting a room higher up because the hotel is very small and there isn't many stairs wherever you go (also in lower room, walls were quite thin). We got to try two rooms, because we offered to give up our room to help somebody with mobility problems. Skala as an area couldn't be any more lovely. The prices are slightly higher here, more than most other places, but that is because all the hotels in Skala are so nice. The area is quiet but there is also plenty to do. The typical guests will keep to themselves and love scenery.
