“The best of all worlds!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

We had visited Skiathos for many years staying both in Skiathos Town and at various other resorts THEN we discovered Kolios and the Skiathos Diamond Apartments. Spacious, clean and well presented with both front and rear balconies. The compact kitchen area serves you well and the supermarket opposite means you dont have to carry purchases far at all.
Breakfast is included and is served in the well appointed family Taverna which has the most beautiful views over the valley. Ideally situated far enough away from the road to make your stay peaceful yet only five minutes walk to the nearest beautiful beach or to the bus stop from where you can travel to most parts of the Island. An extra 5mins walk takes you to numerous Tavernas.
Christos, Soula and their family are welcoming and kind - genuinely lovely hosts. We have stayed here several times and still love it - perfect for those who like the tranquil but with a multitude of beaches /bars /tavernas etc easily accessible when you want it !

Booked a package holiday through Olympic holidays and after being left very unhappy with the accomodation provided to us we looked for an alternative and decided that the Skiathos Diamond was the perfect option for us. Having previously stayed in Kolios the Skiathos Diamond was always a property we had admired.

We were not disappointed.
We booked in very late at night. Soula and Christos were great, sat us down with a drink whilst we waited just 5 mins for our room to be ready. Couldn't ask for more considering we just turned up on their doorstep looking for a room.
The apartments are great. They are spacious, spotlessly clean and had everything we needed including a childrens pool (quite rare in Skiathos) for our 1 year old daughter. Apartment grounds pretty and again immaculate with a little supermarket opposite. Our board was b&b which was a perfect continental breakfast option. We also often ate lunch in the pool side restaurant which was very nice too. Soula, Christos & their family are so friendly and welcoming.
Will definately return to Skiathos in the future and back to the Skiathos Diamond.

This was our first visit to Skiathos and we had been guided by great Trip Advisor reviews when booking at the Diamond. Our stay here was just wonderful. Kolios is a tiny, quiet resort which suited our family. (if you want lots of shops and tavernas, try somewhere else or hire a car) It is only a 5 minute walk to the beautiful beach and the bus stop. The bus runs into town and along the South coast and is by far the cheapest and easiest way to travel. The accommodation was fantastic - our room for 4 people was spacious, comfortable and immaculate! We had everything we required and nothing was too much trouble for the lovely family who ran the complex. Breakfast was a simple but satisfying affair. There was a little supermarket opposite the complex which we used for shopping although a bit pricey like most things in Greece at the moment. The pool area was also immaculate and ideal for children and adults alike. There were ample sun loungers and parasols and it was never crowded. The atmosphere was peaceful and laid back - perfect for a family who just wanted to get away from it all! Thank you Soula and Christos for making us so welcome...we will come back!!

Holidayed in the Diamond Apartments last September and enjoyed it so much we returned this June with our daughter and Fiance. The welcome from Soula and Christos was just as warm as last year and we very quickly felt at home. Apartments clean spacious and comfortable. The grounds very attractive and well cared for with a wonderful pool area with great views out to the Kolios Valley. It is so peaceful here it is hard to believe you are only a short walk to the main road. The taverna area is very attractive, serving delicious Greek food in the evening, homecooked. Breakfast also taken here. Simple but fresh and Christos keeps a sharp eye on replenishing as required. I cannot praise Soula and Christos enough for being great hosts and lovely lovely people with a lovely family.

This was our first visit to Skiathos Diamond apartments but certainly won't be the last.We had a lovely welcome from Christos and Soula who are the nicest people, the apartment was perfect for us,spacious and spotlessly clean.Nothing was too much trouble.
The pool area must be one of the best in skiathos with amazing views and plenty of sunbeds and umberellas.
The apartments are in a quiet location,two minutes to the bus stop and a further 5mins to the local beach .
Good food is available at the accomodation but if you want to explore we can recommend Infinty Blue(at the end of the lane) Green park(massive portions) salt and pepper(need to book)
We loved Skiathos town which is 10 mins away offering plenty of choice in wining and dining.
We will most definately be back to these apartments next year and two weeks next time!
Can't wait.
Ruth and David

Room Tip: we stayed in an upper apartment and the views were lovely

Lovely, spacious apartments and wonderful hosts for whom nothing was too much trouble - even three trips to the medical centre and help with holding my son when the doctor had to put two stitches in his leg (aged 3). I can't rate these apartments and Christos and Soula highly enough. I would recommend anyone who is going to Skiathos for a relaxing holiday to stay in these apartments and enjoy the care and attention to detail which the hosts provide.
