My wife and I stayed here for a week in Sptember - wall to wall sunshine ! Hotel is spacious, clean and well run - although not really the '5 stars' claimed. Rooms of a generous size, well kitted out. Food , although not exceptional, was very good for a hotel - plenty of choice, servings could be what you chose. Staff were excellent - very courteous and helpful. The complimentary bath robe, slippers and beach/pool towels were a big bonus - as was not having to pay for the sun beds on the beach.
Our hair drier wasn't working - the hose was split- but a word at reception, and we were handed another.
My wife was unwell and unable to get to the restaurant - but a word with the restaurant manager and a small selection was sent up to the room. The medical service from town was first rate - very thorough and effective - spot on.
The only real negative is that parts of the hotel can be rather tricky for someone with mobility issues - but again, this could be addressed by talking to the administrative staff so as to be given a suitably located room.
The bar - quite pricey, but generally well stocked. Service speeds here could be improved.
All in all a very nice place to stay - right on the beach, easy access to town with bus stop outside, several other bars, tavernas and restaurants close by.
Skiathos town is enchanting - look for the smaller places in the alleys of the old town for good food, cheaper prices, ambience - and good views very often.
The day trip by boat from the harbour to Skopulos and Alonissos is well worth it - beautiful islands.
And if, like us, you find yourself having to wait a little longer than expected for the flight home, the taverna on the corner near the terminal building is a great place to spend a few hours without hastle - and you can watch the planes coming and going within a few feet of you.
