I have just returned from the Arco in Skiathos. The staff Costa and Vulos on reception were so kind. Costas in the breakfast hall was a delight so see every morning. I would say we had such a peaceful break there. My Grandson had come and was very unwell on the second week. The staff were very caring. Thank you all and Vincent is now better.

As soon as we stepped onto the hotel reception we certainly knew our stay was not going to be as pleasant as expected. First, it is worth pointing out that we booked our room with Booking. According to this reservation website, the Arco Hotel claims to be a 4 star hotel with stunning, comfortable and spacious rooms. Despite the bad reviews this hotel had on Booking and TripAdvisor, we thought this hotel was going to meet our expectations. However, the reality was surprisingly different. Our room looked nothing like the pictures on Booking, the room was tiny and smelled a lot like humidity, the sheets smelled weird, the mattresses were extremely uncomfortable and so were the pillows, the air conditioner made a weird noise that did not let us sleep during the night and, lastly, the towels for the shower were raspy and unpleasant. Because of these reasons, we felt obligated to change our vacation plans and shorten our stay at the Arco Hotel from 6 nights to 3. Unfortunately, they made us pay in advance without even having seen our respective rooms and thus, we would be paying for two empty rooms. We kindly asked the receptionist for a refund and they replied saying that it was against Booking policy. Then, we asked if we could talk to a manager or someone in charge and they said that they would talk to the owner about this issue. We got no response whatsoever. We insisted during the following days until the day of departure but still we got no response. Seems to be that this hotel is managed by no one since the owner never shows up and the hotel doesn’t have any manager in charge. It’s just terrible.

I visited Skiathos in July for the 28th time since 1991. I’ve stayed in many hotels around the island but this was my first time at the Arco. The hotel is very clean and the staff most helpful. The owner was absolutely charming. I wouldn’t hesitate to return. The beach at Aghia Paraskevi is about 80 yards from the hotel, an ideal location. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality, I will be back. Margaret Fowler

Horrible! Stay away! The owner is ruling everyone! He is ironic and insulting towards the people working in it even in front of the customers... poor quality of bed, the mattress old and uncomfortable. Had to wait for the room for long. Breakfast very average. Beach not belonging to hotel is sandy and nice - 8 euro for 2 sunbeds

Response from Fanis M, Γενικός Διευθυντής at Arco Hotel
Responded Jul 29, 2018
An average of 17.000 nights of stay , in the last 3 summer season, and the repeat of 2.000 nights of stay of repeaters guests , show that the hotel has been selected from many many thousands more guests than these few comments coming from people with personal choices not possible to fulfill sometimes such as that the seaview room costs something more than the gardenview rooms, as the policie of the enterprise and some times there are guests who demand seaview meanwhile they paid for a gardenview but then also sometimes is absolutely impossible because the seaviews have been already sold.Now about you read above from guest Victoria 2307 is an excuse for being so hostile! Nothing from what she is writing is truth! We are ready to prove it , when requested.

We have visited this hotel many times and have always been delighted. The owner Farnis and staff Kostas 1, 2 and 3 treated us like friends rather than guests. I owe a big thank you to Farnis, who looked after me after suffering an allergic reaction to a wasp sting, by driving me to Skiathos town to his doctor. Everything about this hotel is excellent - friendliness of staff, breakfasts, cleanliness, location to beach and tavernas, swimming pool and air conditioning. I sincerely hope to return again next year.
