“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

I have lost count on the times I have been here! always a fab holiday with fab people and a simply amazing family! The Greek family adore the children and make such fun for them. This year we visited in May and June.

Many of us come time and time again, the family include all who want to be included as do we, we had an anniversary party and invited people we had only met a few days previously! We go for two weeks in June, if you want fun join in, if you want a quiet time fine. We do not like to impose ourselves on those who look like they want a quiet time! Elizabeth is shy but deffo not rude.

We got married here 2009 and the family made the time the most special ever, all the guests had an amazing time. the whole experience was like a dream all the little special touches that package companies would not do . The night before the wedding the wedding party all ate together at the studios as we did on the last night of the holidays, this made it all very special and fun. We got married in the Bourtzi, fab photos over looking the sea. The food for the reception was fantastic the best ever the decorations of the pool bar and our room a five star hotel could not compete. I really recomend getting married in Greece and asking this wonderful Greek family to do the reception. If any one wants to know more contact me on the email address above.

The Greek and Pizza nights fantastic. Pizza's home made and cooked in an out door oven with a real fire ... to die for ..... Greek night is fantastic entertainment!! Real greek dancing and a bit of a boogey after if you wish!!

The food is all cooked by Matoula and Elizabeth. There is a lovely snack menu for a lazy lunch whilst sheltering from the sun!!! to menion a few of the snacks there are omletts, toasted sarni's, salads including fresh made to order potato salad (I watched the home made mayo being made!), greek salad and chef special salad- this is lettuce tomoato, cucumber, ham, cheese and a fesh boiled egg (the familys chicken eggs cooked to order!! - yum!!), with home made tomoato mayo (there is quite a bit and it is lovely however if you only want a little ask for it in the side).., jacket potatoes including a special jacket potato - filling taken out mixed with ham and cheese and popped back in the skin .. The chips are not frozen but freshly prepared and cooked to order ...... the best on the island.

They have an evening menu... again all cooked fresh to order meat a la cream - meat (pork but you can ask for chicken), bacon and a cream sauce served with mixed rice and chips...... beef chop .. a lovely steak .. well recomended. Pork chop to die for. Many of the snacks are also suitable for starters.

You can ask for a selection of food they will do half size portions so you can try different things, also watch out for the specials they are on a black board near the pizza oven ... fish in tomato sauce and mousaka we tried both delicious ... mousaka the
best I have had in all my visits to greece.

The menu does not describle the food so ask the lovely family who serve behind the bar. they will explain the dish contents.

you ask and you get what you want.

The family only want to ensure you have a fabulous holiday, they work very hard at this. If you want any thing just ask ... if you want a quiet time this is also fine. The place is very carefully designed everyone has there own balcony.

I really cannot prasie the Elizabeth Studios sufficiently, this lovely family fun place is a fabulous Greek holiday ... I think that many visitors return says it all and it is nearly always full (each time I have been there all rooms have been full ... say no more!)

Thank you to the best family in Skiathos for a great time ........

had to walk to the elizabeth down a long lane which we were told was a short walk never///// thats the last thing you need to do after a long journey when it is so hot. Elizabeth kindly bought us a nice cold beer after the long walk to get to her studios which was the only time she gave us the time of day in two weeks. She is not friendly at all, definately not a people person unless you were greek then she would was a lot more friendlier. because of this we chose to spend a lot of our time at other bars not spending anything at the elizabeth when she was always so misserable not what you expect when on holidays they are there to make sure you have a great time not have a face like a bag of spanners, we were told by her to stay at the main gates to be picked up for the airport if we had listened to her we would have missed our flight she new full well that we had to walk down the lane to meet the coach not happy about this at all she knew exactly where the pickup point was. If you have small children this place is not for you, bar at night very very noisy till early hours with her greek friends NEVER AGAIN

Room Tip: if you do stay here request room right at the back of complex and eat out

The room was basic ,the shower was.nt up to a good standard ,small and shower curtain sticking to you while showering, in the 2 weeks we were there only 2 small rolls if toilet paper allocated, the air con unit of which we had to rent was not very good ,poor performance of unit, there were 2 plugs which did not work , the bedding was changed twice only, same with the towels , the rooms were full of mosquito ,s even though we had a plug in insect repellant unit and sprayed our selves with repellant and sprayed room when we went out , we were bitten each night about 6 times each per night,the cleaner was not a happy lady at all she knocks at your door to get you out , the pool was ok the first week then a on slaughter of families arrived with children , there were no sun beds free , pool which was small was very busy , the pool area was very noisy so could not chill or relax, in the end we went to another hotel to use the pool area, there customers who had been there the year or years before where they and Elizabeth seemed to a click , Elizabeth herself was not very welcoming or socially pleasant throughout our stay.all in all not a hotel for couples wanting to relax and have some basic comfort.

Firstly, this place is a good 5-10 min walk, depending on your ability, to the main road. Not a problem atall, as there are plenty of pit-stops on the way.

From the second we set foot at this place, we were made to feel so so welcome, and not in a false, awkward, first time meeting way, it really was genuine. Elizabeth greeted us warmly, she doesn't have the best English in the world, but more than enough. We had no. 13. All the rooms-studios- apartments, are more like little bungalows. There are a few with another floor to them. They are basic, I mean, ours didn't have a kettle, ( we got one from next door, as they were leaving the following day), its not a big deal, there are the little coffee pot pans to use.
Bedding change weekly, and we had fresh towels every other day.

Pool is quite small, but, enough for the amount of accommodation, the area is kept spotless clean.
The bar area is open all day till.............whenever you want really. The food served there is fantastic as is the drinks they serve. I know people say nothing was too much trouble, but, really it isn't for them.

Elizabeth and Matula, along with Elizabeths son and daughters, are fantastic cooks, and hosts.
They work so very hard to make your holiday the best ever.

This was our first time to Skiathos, and feel very lucky to have got to stay there. There were people there, who were on there 19th visit. Must be doing something right.

Looking forward to going back again , for sure.

Thanks so much Elizabeth and Matula.

Room Tip: rooms away from the pool will be quieter

The Elizabeth Studios in Agia Paraskeyh Skiathos provide the most wonderful setting for a quiet retreat in the sunshine. The family run property has a lovely pool to swim in and relax around together with children's pool, with plenty of sunbeds, parasols, and tables and chairs. The bar is well stocked and available from early till late. The food was freshly prepared, well presented and great value for money. The rooms are very clean, spacious and traditional and cleaned on a daily basis. Elizabeth and her family looked after us so well we have booked to go again in 8 weeks time and are definitely going to return next year. The island of Skiathos is so beautiful with fantastic views on every corner. The south of the island can be easily traveled on the excellent bus route one road from bus stop 1 to 26. A definite must for a holiday in the sun.
We traveled out for our Sons Wedding and 10 of us stayed with Elizabeth and would strongly recommend this simple, quiet and relaxing destination.

Room Tip: All rooms close to centre as small complex, however, room further away from pool and bar would be qu...

Good accommodation for 2star, welcoming but unobtrusive staff (apart from the dour faced maid who, despite checking out was 12 noon told us at 10.30 'you should be gone') this spoiled the last morning. Thank you Elizabeth and your lovely friend whose name I did not ask, she was great. The studios are about a 10minute stroll away from the main road, the pool is clean and the gardens nice. Cocktails are very good as are the snacks. In all I would recommend these studios and I am sure repeat visitors are received as friends.
A supermarket across the road is a bonus.
Advise travellers to take the insect repellent plugs as some of our party got bitten lots(think there is a stream somewhere to the back of the studios)

Room Tip: Rooms around the bar may be noisy at times but we had 2,3,4 which were fine.
