Just back from a fortnight at the Myrtia Appartments and glad to report that they are still a real gem (see other reviews) not a 5 star hotel but a very friendly and helpful, quiet and safe place to stay. The furniture may not be the highest quality but it is clean and serviceable and great value for money. The real strength lies in the food, the safety (no traffic for families to worry about - 5 minute walk along a flint track to the road and nestled in trees) and most of all the excellent staff (which assisted greatly whilst i was ill - see below).
Recommend using Mustang Car Rentals 25 Euros a day for a Jimny (half the price of those recomended by the agents and a local/Skiathos business - [--].
Best food experience (atmosphere, quality and cost) is the Taverna Alexandros run by Magda, her husband and team (as is Mustang Car Rental) and will give you an evening to cherish (with live music and the perfect location and atmosphere).
Required medical help and received great and inexpensive assistance (Dr came to appartment for 30 Euros) from Dr Sotris Michalitsis [--].
Best watersports (Skiing, Wakeboards and all the usual inflatables plus the only windsurf board on the island !) Stefanos Ski School at Vassilias Beach (bus stop no.8) www.stefanosskischool.com (and he makes the best Frappe on the island) Taught me to windsurf and is probably the cheapest and most highly qualified instructor.
