“Good base”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here at the muses for 2 weeks in may , on arrival we thought oh my what have we booked... But... Having never been to skiathos before we have to say although this hotel has slightly dated rooms, they were spotlessly clean, great maid service, the staff were very friendly and the food in the taverna was lovely on the night we ate there. Breakfast was basic, ham cheese, eggs, bread and pastries plus cereals, not a lot of choice but adequate . Spiros the guy behind the pool bar is fantastic, always smiling and welcoming and great to have an early evening drink there . The pool is clean and refreshing especially after a day on the beach. We loved skiathos as we ate out each night, went to skiathos town a few times and spent lazy days on koukanaries beach which is a 10 minute walk away, having worked in the Greek islands as a holiday rep Years ago I can safely say skiathos is truly beautiful and we had a fantastic time, would definitely return possibly to a different hotel as we like to stay in different hotels, I can see why people return year after year. We found that a lot of people go back year after year and all seem to know each other . We didn't visit the nudist beaches ( not our thing!!! ) although they are close by ! A great holiday all in all .

I wrote a review about The Muses Hotel in August 2012 (KEVIN M - MAIDSTONE) just before our next visit to Skiathos in September 2012. I am delighted to say that our 2nd stay at The Muses was equally as good as our first! Marula and the staff were as friendly and welcoming as before. The rooms are very clean and the food in the taverna is excellent! Highlights of both trips for us are Agia Eleni beach (a real little paradise), Skiathos Town (beautiful by day and enchanting at night), grilled squid at the Old Port seafood restaurant (a taste sensation...!), driving a 4 x 4 Suzuki up in the hills (an absolute must...!) and The Monastery of Evangelistria. Skiathos is a beautiful island full of interesting sights, great restaurants & bars and beautiful beaches. Renting a car is advisable in order to see everything. Skiathos ticks all the boxes for us and I'm sure we'll be back there later this year, staying at the Muses of course!

just back from 1st time on skiathos, and stayed at the Muses hotel for 1 week. Large hotel room, basic but clean. Only downside was that as we were booked in for b & b there was tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. The barman, Spiros makes the most delicious cold chocolate and you must try the 'Spiros cocktail'. Lovely friendly barman, always with a ready smile.

I just got back from a one week stay at this hotel, my first visit and definitely not my last... The staff were all friendly and helpful, the room was clean and serviced every day. This hotel is not four star but the standards set by the owners are high. I had two meals in the hotel both of which were very good and reasonably priced. Breakfast is basic but met my needs if you want full English you can find it not far away... All in all an enjoyable stay in a lovely hotel.

Anybody looking for an easy going beach holiday will love Skiathos, Koukounaries is beautiful though quiet but you're only a short ride away from the other resorts and the town/harbour. I booked the Muses hotel through Thomas Cook for a fair price as a single traveller in high season knowing the location was perfect for some of the islands best beaches and was pleased I did. Everything about my two-week stay was excellent, the staff and the restaurant are outstanding, my room was great with daily clean towels and sheets provided as necessary.
All and all I couldn't fault any aspect of the hotel, it is simple but has everything you need and the location is great. I've booked for two of us to go again this summer and can't wait.

The hotel is in a great location you can walk to almost a different beach every day. The hotel is basic but it a great place to stay, we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. We stayed B & B there wasn't a massive choice for breakfast but what was there was more than ample, if you want 4 star then book a 4 star, this place is good value for money. The pool has a small bar area and there is a restaurant where you can which we used a couple of time, good food great service. If you want to explore a bit further the bus service is easy to use and takes you into Skiathos Town in about 30-40 mins lots of bars and restaurants, and nice just to strol around you can book boat trips around the islands you might even get to see some dolphins, we did. Skiathos is great have a nice holiday
