My boyfriend and I stayed for a week at the Kivo hotel & suites and had the most amazing, relaxing time.
We arrived at Skiathos airport after being delayed by 2 hours and a very kind holiday rep contacted Kivo to inform them our flight had only just landed and within ten minutes their courtesy shuttle bus/car collected us and took us to the hotel. The hotel is just stunning and set on a mountain side with amazing sea views from everywhere that you look. We were welcomed with a nice cocktail and given a quick tour of the hotel and shown to our room. The room was a nice size, clean and tidy with fabulous sea views and skiathos town in the distance. The pool and bar area were gorgeous and although the hotel was full the pool area never lost the relaxed feel and it was never crowded. Breakfast is served upstairs with a balcony area allowing you to eat your breakfast looking out over the sea! :) nice breakfast, good range and all very fresh.
Although the hotel is approx 5-10 minutes into skiathos by car it's not a problem at all. The hotel run a complimentary shuttle bus/car that do regular trips into town. Mike the driver is very friendly and helpful. They drop you into town and have certain times in the day and evening when they pick you up again and take you back to the hotel. Even if its busy they will keep running trips until everyone is back. We also booked a trip one morning and mike dropped us into town earlier so they are very flexible! We did hire a beach buggy for 2 days to allow us to explore the north of the island which was great fun.
Overall a fab holiday in a great hotel with lovely staff.
We will definitely return! Want to go back now!!!
