“We hated it and....we'll never be back!!!”
Reviewed September 7, 2011

we were given a totally...abandoned room,which had nothing to do with the...ideal(!) rooms of the website. We were also obliged to pay for one more night (part of the cancellation policy), athough we left earlier! Be careful of the tavern too, which was by far the worst of the island.... Not to mention that the owner's behaviour and...mood changed, when we told her that we had to leave....

We booked more than two months in advance but got a very bad room (nothing to do with the pictures on the website). The view and location were nice, the owner was very kind; but the room was small, the toilet was less than acceptable, facilities in the room (kitchen for instance) were not up to the expectations, very noisy nights. In addition, our neighbours were very annoying. We had booked for 5 nights but left after the first morning.

We spent 4 nights at Villa Zaharo. We had a wonderful apartment on the top level with incredible views of the beach. We loved spending our time on the huge balcony. The place was clean and well-equipped. The A/C worked well. The daytime snack bar provided a good selection of food. The minimarket and bus-stop #20 are a very short walk either along the road or along the beach. We really enjoyed our stay and would return.

The most perfect location you could ask for, less than 1 minute from Troulos beach, in fact ON the beach!, 2 minutes to the nearest supermarket and bus stop.
Gorgeous sea views from all rooms.
Large balconies for all rooms.
Regular maid service.
Lovely family.
Rooms are extremely basic, but sufficient and clean.
What more could you want for your stay on Skiathos?

We have been holidaying on Skiathos for several years and have just had our "best holiday ever" at Villa Zacharo. Our apartment was on the 3rd floor with superb views straight across the bay. To return to the room in the evening and just sit looking out over the sea was an absolute joy. The hospitality of the owners and the helpfulness of staff also made the holiday great. Our room was cleaned almost every day and clean linen provided every other day. There was a Taverna attached to the apartments where snacks could be obtained from mid-morning to late afternoon and any request for something different was forthcoming where possible.Cheerful staff also made you feel very welcome there. We returned back to the UK relaxed and happy with our holiday and have rebooked for September this year for another week.

The sea view from our room was very nice! The room had a lot of space, the bathroom the same but it wasn’t that clean. Every 2 days they cleaned only the floors, nothing else. They didn’t clean the toilet even once a time during our whole stay there (one week). The bathroom also smells bad the most time. They changed towels and sheets every 2 days, but sometimes they were dirty. The personal and the owners were very helpful and very kind. There is also a small restaurant. Everybody there was very kind and helpful too. The quality of the food there was medium. We ate 4 times there. They served us also food from the day before but if you want something different which is simple to cook, they will do it for you. The prices in the restaurant are too high for what they offer. The price for the room is also too high for what they offer. The beds on the beach are the owner’s of the apartments, but you have to pay for them. I think that they could let the beds on the beach for free for the guests of their rooms. Just take care of the umbrellas when it’s windy, because they are very old and maybe they will fly away.
