We stayed there in August 2012 and enjoyed every minute of the holiday. The accommodation was clean, basic but fine for a holiday.
Although the hotel is situated on a main road the traffic noise wasn't a problem. The hotel is within easy walking distance of several excellent restaurants and 2 small but well equipped shops.
The beach is less than 5 minutes walk away and even though we went at the height of the season it wasn't busy and the loungers and parasols were plentiful and very reasonable to hire.
The main problem was that the buses got extremely crowded after about 5pm, so,if you wanted to go to Skiathos town in the evening you needed to leave much earlier than 5 to get there or get a taxi. The taxis drive past very frequently and are easily hailed and reasonable too!
The poolside bar was run by Sakios, a very friendly and helpful chap who seemed to worked 24/7 but was always smiling.
A great holiday for all ages.
