Stayed from 4th to 18th September. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room always kept clean and sheets and towels changed every three days. Most of the rooms are in separate blocks of 5 - 6 rooms, all of which have balconies that two people can sit comfortably out on; the blocks are surrounded by well kept grounds. Breakfast is served from 8am - 10am and is a 'continental' buffet style but does have boiled eggs and at least one hot dish. The restaurant is only open in the evening but serves very good food at reasonable prices and is good value for money.
Only 500 metre walk from Koukounaries beach which must be one of the most beautiful in the world. Opposite a lagoon which is well worth a walk around leading to the far end of the beach. A bus stop is almost opposite hotel; bus runs from 0700 to 0100, every 20 mins [approximately] and costs 2 euros for single trip to Skiathos, which takes about 35 minutes. It stops at 20 or so other bus stops giving access to other beaches and terminates at Skiathos Harbour. One word of advice, if you are in Skiathos town after 10pm go to the terminus to catch the bus - that way you MIGHT get a seat!!
The hotel has a small swimming pool with some 20 or so sunbeds, sheltered by natural umbrella type canopies surrounding it, and a good-value pool bar
It says much for the standard of the Muses that quite a few of the guests return every year - I for one will certainly go back to it. One drawback, which is the reason I haven't said it is worth an excellent rating, to use the refrigerator in the room costs 3 euros per day. I thought 42 euros for a 14 day stay was exorbitant - and you can't even bring it home with you!! Despite that, I would have no hesitation in recommending the Muses to anyone who fancies visiting one of the most picturesque Greek islands.
