Disappointed when we arrived,as we were dumped at the bottom of the road, by the bus and rep. on duty, it was a very long steep hill which was our initial concern. We were
not met and had to find our own rooms, thankfully we had a lovely young man in our group who found the room, then took the cases up to it as we were on the top floor, but the room was very clean, spacious, shower was brilliant, and the views were amazing. We were more than happy with the room, the views, the pool, we couldnt have the air con on,as we couldnt find the owner, the first night, nor was there a rep. so we didnt sleep very well.
it was so hot up there. We eventually had it put on the following day, costing 42euro for the week. Well worth it as we found being on the top floor our room was very hot. We were impressed that the room was cleaned daily, and the towels and sheets twice during the week, though we did ask the rep. if we could have bath sheets as the little towel which was there initially was too small, for grown up bodies...and we got bath sheets and small towels too which was a bonus. So if you are going there just ask and you will be given them. All in all we liked the area, the beach was just around the corner which was lovely, the tavernas on the beach were nice too, we went to Koukinaris beach once but it was full of Italians so we didnt go again (they are soooooo rude pushing in front for everything including the buses) We think if we go again we would stay in or nearer Skiathos town as that was bril. The hill to the hotel was unbearable though we renamed it cardiac hill, as that is how you felt when you got to the top, it is misrepresented in the brochure,it really is very long and the road is more like a dirt track so girls forget the heels, you will kill yourself on that hill. Even the taxi drivers complained about it to us when we took them to get back up the track at night after going to Skiathos, as we just couldnt face going up that hill again at night. It was also pitch black the first couple of nights and we were glad we took torches.
It would have been nice if there were snacks/meals at the pool area and a bit of life it didnt give you much enthusiasm to stay by the pool really, especially when the other hotels had really good facilities by the pool. It certainly wouldnt entice me to return there as there are some really nicer places on a flatter surface, with better facilities listening to other people there, i think if we were to return we would stay either in Skiathos or nearer as it was lovely there, all in all it was a very beautiful place, the people were very friendly, but wouldnt return to the Paschalis as i was not impressed with the hill, the fact we only passed the owner once during the day and his wife/partner barely raised a smile, when we did see her, and there were no pool facilities, otherwise the cleanliness was very good, so top marks for that. The one thing really going for it was the beautiful views, oh and there were a lot of wasps there too. So be warned.....
