    Stayed at Vila Rosa with my husband and 8 month old daughter. We had a great time . We booked a one bedroomed apartment which worked really well, much bigger than the studios. This is a family run property which gave it a lovely relaxed feel, as opposed to an impersonal feel you can experience.

    Even though the apartments were full the pool was lovely and very quiet during the day - we more or less had the pool to ourselves which was perfect for our daughter. The area around the pool was clean and the parasols came in very handy!

    The restaurant was great and very reasonably priced and the staff overall were exceptionally friendly. They were good enough to send the restaurant food up to our room on the evenings when our daughter had an early night. We ate on the balcony overlooking the bar area. The restaurant was full each night with guests from other properties in the area.

    Location is nice and quiet, but not remote. There's a supermarket over the road and a 5 minute walk takes you to the main road where you can catch the bus into town or walk the extra 5 minutes to the beach, which is fantastic. We used the sunbeds owned by the Troulos Bay Hotel (you pay at reception). This is useful as they have a nice restaurant serving lunch.

    The only negative was that there was no air conditioning. But this was compounded for us as we experienced the Greek heatwave at 40 degrees in the middle of the night. Either way, air con would have been a bonus.

    Highly recommended apartments.

    This was our first trip to Skiathos, and what a beautiful Island. On arrival we were whisked away to the Villa Rosa appartments in the Troylos area. Set in a picturesque part of the island, just a short walk to the beach, the Villa Rosa stands in lush green settings dotted with palms and rose bushes amongst many other floral plants. We had seen the pictures on Trip Advisor before we booked, and we were not dissappointed. Marcos and his family greeted us with such a warm welcome which continued throughout our stay. His cooking is wonderful, so much so that people traveled from all over just to eat his delicous food. We only stayed one week, but on leaving felt we had left a part of us there. Are there any down sides I hear you ask? in truth only one, which was the water only got hot in the afternoon for showering through a very small shower, but this did not cause a problem as we just readjusted. We don't wish to rave too much about the Villa Rosa as the piece of paradise may be completely sold out and we may have trouble returning.

    We stayed for 2 weeks at these apartments and they were the best in Greece that we have stayed in so far. They were cleaned every day and clean towels were provided twice a week. The staff at the apartments are incredibly friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Each apartment also has its own washing line, which is great for drying towels etc. We ate out every night, but the self catering facilities looked good, and several apartments did cook every night. All apartments have balconies and most overlook the pool area. There are about 10 apartments, which keeps the place small and friendly.

    The location is perfect, the apartments are off the main road, but only 10 mins walk to the beach and 5 minutes to most of the tavernas. Troulos has several tavernas and villa rosa serves the best food throughout Troulos and possibly Skiathos. It was very cheap to eat out in Troulos, but could be a bit pricey in Skiathos town.

    It is very quiet in Troulos, which is perfect for winding down, if you want something a bit livelier, head for Skiathos town. There is a bus every 15-20 minutes to take you to Skiathos town or to Koukunaries. I think these run until 1 or 2am. It only costs €1.50 on the bus and a taxi is only €9 from Skiathos town back to Troulos, if you don't fancy the bus.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Rosa apartments and would definately stay here again. We booked with Thomsons, who have the apartments exclusively.

    Myself and my girlfriend stayed at the Villa Rosa Studio Apartments in Troulos in late June this year. After reading mixed reviews of the Island, and Troulos in particular, I admit I was a little hesitant but ended up very pleasantly surprised.

    Yes, Troulos does not have a centre and lacks the traditional cobbled streets that I remember from my greek holidays when I was a child. What it does have, however, is beautfiul scenery, a simple, peaceful way of life and a great beach (surrounded by other great beaches) - the perfect recipe for a very relaxing holiday.

    There are many apartment complexes dotted around Troulos but, from what I saw, each is far enough apart to feel that you are in a semi-rural, fairly private location. Villa Rosa is a perfect example of this and we were very happy with our choice. The 12 or so studio apartments, although containing fairly basic bathrooms and kitchenettes, are smartly furnished and are very clean with balconies overlooking the attractive pool and bar area. One of the best things about Villa Rosa is the bar/restaurant and the people that work there. Markos (son of the owner from what we could work out) is always smiling and happy to help. The food at the restaurant is exceptional and, whilst I am normally someone who enjoys trying different places every night, we ate there every night but one. A 2 course meal for two people including drinks was roughly 30 euros, a bargain given the quality.

    As for the rest of the Island, there isnt a lot to do in Skiathos town during the day though I know there are some very good bars and restaurants there for an evening out. That said it is an attractive port and worth a visit. The rest of the Island is essentially a string of very attractive beaches - Koukanaries, Kolios and Agia Paraskevi being our preferred ones other than Troulos itself. The bus service is excellent, cheap and simple to use.

    All in all I would give Skiathos and Troulos the thumbs up and would go back. The Villa Rosa Apartments would definitely be our choice again and I would heartily recommend it.
