We stayed at Costas & Mary in August and had a brilliant holiday. The hotel is extremely clean (the rooms are always cleaned to a very high standard) and the communal areas are immaculate. Although the hotel is situated only a few minutes from the airport, you hardly hear the planes. The pool area is lovely, with sufficent sunbeds (with cushions) and umbrellas and a lovely bar area (seats in the shades), which is cheap! The rooms have a balcony and washing line (the beds could do with being a bit softer and a fridge would be a welcome addition).
The hotel is sitauted only 5 minutes from the 'new' harbour and is in a quiet location. It is the ideal location to explore Skiathos Town (which has two lovely harbours and lots of resturants, tavernas and shops). It is also the place to catch the bus to all the beaches and catch a separate white minibus to the monestary (well worth a visit). The harbour is ideal for catching boats or water taxis to the beaches. We caught a boat to Tsouragnia Island, which was well worth it (lovely snady beach with crystal clear water and a taverna).
There are a number of resturants in Skitahos Town (serving a wide range of cuisine). The Windmill is expensive but well worth a visit for excellent food and views (do need to book). 1901 serves excellent food and Plakes serves excellent food with lovely views.
There are lots of bars (happy hour from 6:00pm - 9/10:00pm) and Rock & Roll (sit on cushions) is well worth a visit.
All in all an excellent holiday
