We have recently returned from 10 days at Mandraki and loved every minute of it. This was our 4th time in Koukounaries and we normally stay in a standard self catering place, but as we treated ourself to 10 nights away we though we'd go for somewhere more comfortable, and the hotel certainly delivered.
We stayed in a garden view suite and it was spacious, had a huge bed, a great balcony overlooking the gardens and pool and was simply a great room. Best of all was the bathroom. You often get a tiny wet room in Greece but the bathroom here was great with a powerful shower that had a screen so the room didn't get soaked every day. They also supplied slippers and left a bottle of water in the fridge every day. If I absolutely had to criticise anything I'd say the balcony furniture could be more comfortable for the price.
The grounds are lovely and really well maintained and the pool was nice. The bar was great although we were normally the only people in there, presumably because as other people have noted it is pretty expensive (but hey you're on holiday, get over it).
We ate in the bar once and the club sandwich was awesome.
The breakfast buffet was amazing, one of the best we've experienced. They had everything from cakes and pastries to bread, fresh fruit, cold meats and a few hot options.
We would thoroughly recommend the BBQ night, the food was endless and the band created a great atmosphere.
Location is great for all the local tavernas and Koukounaries beach, it's a bit further to our preferred Agia Eleni beach but the walk did us good!
What really makes this place though is the staff, they really were unbelievably friendly and hard working. From the dark haired lady who checked us in (and who always seemed to be there) to the girls serving at breakfast and Lefteris behind the bar, we must say thank you for a brilliant holiday!
This place is expensive for a Greek hotel but all we can say is we loved it there and will definitely be back soon.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Plunging into the woods and from there, into the heart of the sea - a relaxing holiday in the Greek islands. Walking through the Koukounaries beach and parklands, 200 metres from the hotel, is a memorable experience. Some other beautiful beaches on the northern part of Skiathos Island, Greece, are the beaches of Mandraki and Elia’s, after which we have named this Skiathos luxury boutique hotel and restaurant. ... more less
