Byzantium Apartments
Ranked #27 of 192 Specialty Lodging in Skiathos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 4, 2014

This was our first visit, we booked it after reading the reviews on trip advisor and we certainly were not disappointed. Kostas and his Momma are brilliant hosts, nothing is too much trouble .
The apartments were very clean and had everything you needed, even a toaster and for the ladies a much needed hairdryer. The local shop was 2 minutes walk away,with 4 others less than 10 minutes which were a lot bigger
The restaurants were all fantastic, but we loved Sunrise and the hostess there Nicky is amazing,and it was the nearest, others include,Salt and Pepper, Victoria tavern, and Ratuoille, if you are there for 2 weeks, you can go to a different one every night, you certainly won,t be disappointed with any of them.
The beach is a good 15 minutes away, Sandy with sunbeds and a umbrella ,which cost 7 euros for the day, and they have a lifeguard on duty, also 2 bars for food and drink.
The buses run about every 10 minutes, remember this is Greece, but excellent value at 2 euros to get to Skiathos town.
Byzantium have a bbq night on Mondays and you pay either 18 or 20 euros depending on whether you want meat or fish ,all prepared by Kostas and his family, and as entertainment afterwards you listen to Groom Therapy, even if you don,t go to the bbq, you must listen to this band they are great, and the variety of songs are superb.
All in all a fantastic holiday and we will be back, along with all the others that return year after year
One thing ,a cockerel will wake you up about 4pm every morning,but I suppose it's all part of the holiday.

Room Tip: All the rooms are in an excellent position ,as there are only 13 of them so it doesn't, matter w...

Spent a fab week here in may, couldnt fault it. If you want 5* luxury this is not the place for you, if you want typical greek hospitality you will get it in bucket loads. Kostas his mamma and molly will provide eveything you need for a perfect holiday. The apartments are surrounded by greenery, nothing to trouble you, but the sound of chickens and sheep, so peacefull and tranquil, "PERFECT". The apartments themselves have everything you could need to make drinks and snacks, a nice size fridge, and cleaned daily. As it is a small complex there are plenty of sun beds to go round, no laying down of towels(which makes a change). The bar is well stocked and does good bar meals, and is also spotlessly clean. Will definitely reutrn to the Byzantium.

Just got back from a 2 week stay at the apartments and can't wait to visit again. Everything was perfect, not a thing to complain about. Kostas and staff couldn't have been more helpful and mama does a fab breakfast, just the ticket to soak up the ouzo from the night before. Go on, book it, you won't regret it

This is our first visit to the Byzantium and will not be our last. The apartments and the whole complex are cleaned daily by Kostas, his mother and staff. The pool is immaculate with plenty of sunbeds for all the guests. The pool bar is central to the accommodation where many a pleasant hour was spent chatting with Kostas and the other guests. There are plenty of places to eat within easy walking distance as well as snacks at the bar. I would recommend the Sunrise and Victoria for food quality and service.
The whole feel of the apartments is one of a safe and friendly, nice place to have a holiday.

This is a relaxing, safe and friendly place in a quiet location. Once we had found the beach, we had a fab time. Would definitely go back - once we have visited a few other islands.

Lovely places to eat on the door step and very friendly staff.

Room Tip: All the same - so relax!

nice relaxing week, family run apartments Kostas and his staff can't do enough for you and the apartments are cleaned everyday. plenty of sunbeds so you don't need to be up at dawn. breakfast was great and the restaurant next door (sunrise was also excellent) met some lovely people there so to all of you that where at the apartments between the 13/20 Sept thanks for lovely holiday.
Troulos is very quiet and everything is spread out and not a lot there unless you are a beach lover don't forget to take a touch with you for coming back at night. Skiathos is lovely but very compact.
