My wife and I enjoyed our week long stay at the Makis Studios. The studios are located in a great position only a short stroll into the town with it's good selection of restaurants and bars.

Stayed here at the end of August. The resort was full, but you would never have known. Always sun beds available and very quiet at night. I must say we never heard any dogs at night.

Stayed here 16th July for 2 weeks this is our second time. The apartments are spotlessly clean and Rita and the staff are very friendly and work very hard to maintain the standard. The location is brilliant and Scala is a lovely town, the restaurant's are brilliant and so are the cocktail bars.

My husband and I stayed at Makis Studios in September and just love the place. It is the second year running we have stayed and it really is 'Real Greece'. The studios are spotless and are cleaned every day, we were self catering and had everything we needed along with a beautiful balcony. We prefer the studios a bit further...

We stayed in the Makis studios for a week in room 1. The rooms are compact and basic but spotlessly clean. I agree that a toaster would be good! We had a large patio area which was very private. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Maria has a wonderful personality and makes such an effort to make people feel...

Set just off the Main Street at the top of the hill Makis Studios are close to many of the restaurants and just 10 minutes walk from the beach. The room was compact but comfortable.
