Me and my wife visited the Stellina in Skiathos in September 2010.
We had been to Skiathos 3 years ago and always wanted to go back it is a fantastic island we wanted to stay nearer the Town this time so picked the above hotel, when we gat tothe room overlooked the airport we asked what drop off we would be on the buse even they said first because others had not got their cases we got a taxi within 1 minute we was there 7 euro.
We had room 303 top floor next to the lift but never heard a thing all week the balcony had electric shutters for security purposes and overlooked the owners villa and in the distance views of the sea and the town you could just see the famous windmill restaurant.
the pool was cold but only had one day at the side of it because we did plenty of walking round the back streets looking for restaurants, shops, the local people and their houses, also we did the trip to Allonosis and Scopilos like last time, it is a full day 10 till 6pm and only 20 euro each.
We also did the round the island trip but 2 days before it had rained so was a bit rough round the north of the island so couldn't see everything.
There are plenty of eating places the back streets are cheaper than the harbour but all ok not to pricey.
We found plenty of bars but if you want a English bar go to the old harbour where the boats leave stand and face the bars look up and you will see a bar called the roof top bar this couple and staff are great and will tell you anything about the island the only thing is they don't do food and only open at night but it is a great place to go and if you get a front seat you over look the harbour.
whilst you are on the island have a walk up to the old clock great views and a couple of bars up there as well.
The hotel breakfast is only greek so only expect cheese, bread, cake, jam but that's Greece for you aint it, and the pool bar closes at around 4 pm, at night you could think the bar in reception is closed but ask at reception or the night porter the Indian lad he is great and you will get served.
Rooms were basic but comfortable, we walked back to the airport took us 10 minutes, in to town 15 mins, if you want to go to the end of the runway to have a pint and look at planes coming in and out leave the hotel turn right take a right down the first little path go to the left follow the lane and you will be at the bar.
We will deffinetly go back to Skiathos we love the place, and yes probably would go back to the hotel.
Enjoy this island
