We stayed for two weeks in August 2011 and had THE best holiday ever. You pay a little more but it is well worth the money. After a short walk from the road we were greated by a beautifully appointed complex of only about 20 apartments, a gorgeous pool and bar, the best we have ever seen.
We were met by the owner, Sophia and shown to our apartment. The room is typically Greek with simple, but ample cooking equipment, and a spotlessly clean bathroom. In fact, the room was cleaned VERY regularly by a team of staff who couldn't do enough for you. Always smiling, and always chatting.
The pool is kept very clean (you can watch Sergio clean it with his 'little robot' every night!). A warning though .... the pool gets very deep very quickly and so is not suitable for non swimmers. The pool area is always spotless with ample sunbeds for everyone. The pool bar serves Mythos, soft drinks and spirits as well as bar food. All round excellent.
The local beach at Koukinaries is only a 10 minute walk away and has soft white sand and clear blue seas. There are also two beach bars.
There are two local supermarkets, three restaurants and 3 nice bars all within a ten minute walk.
The highlight of our holiday was ..... Aphrodite (Afroditi) who worked in the pool bar every day from 3pm to midnight. She was brilliant .... good company and really good at her job. Unfortunately she has now moved on and is working at a restaurant in Nicosia, Cyprus. My partner has been staying in touch via email.
Skiathos Town is about 30 minutes away by bus, which gets incredibly busy as the locals use it to get to Koukinaries Beach. A taxi set us back 20 euros!
Make sure you visit the end of the runway at Skiathos Airport to see planes take off at some point. If you want to know why look at the clips on YouTube!!
We have already booked to return to Sergios in August 2012 ..... and that won't be our last visit I'm sure. The perfect holiday .... no complaints at all.
