“Great for everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

Whether you are a couple, group of friends or a family there is everything at Mikes. We have stayed in the apartments a couple of times and in one of his bungalows. There is a small swimming pool for cooling down and a large grassed area with sun beds and several olive trees for shade. There is even a set of swings for very little ones. The bar has several large TVs for films like Mamma Mia (but why wouldn't you as some of it was filmed in Skiathos) and big sporting events including football. There is a games room with a pool table, and a small library. If you just fancy a quiet drink by yourselves then that can also be achieved. Breakfast is served by the pool/bar and is plentiful. In fact we could share one and still not be hungry at lunch. Mikes place is only 15 mins from the airport but it doesn't cause any problems. They also serve food at lunchtime and in the evenings if you don't fancy the very short walk into town. Nearest places to eat are about 5 mins away and the old harbour about a 10-15 minute stroll. Walking with a pushchair wouldn't be too much of a problem as its fairly flat, but be aware some of the paths and pavements can narrow off and are a little rough in places. If you have young children its a safe place to go as there are gates at the back and front of the property, with security cameras at the front so the bar staff at the back of the property can see who comes in and out. Would highly recommend to all that love Greece and a friendly genuine host who wants nothing more than all of his guest enjoy themselves whether its for a romantic break for two or a good old fashioned family holiday.

Room Tip: Request a high floor apartment unless you have young children.

i stay here every year the staff are all very friendly. they have many animals and let you go on hhis boat all around the island for free he was water spports that he lets you go on if you want . the food is good .also its not far away from the town (2 mins walk away) also near a bus stop going to the beaches (3 mins walk away).at night there is good entertainment and really homely.Previous reviews have summed the place up fairly well - very clean, comfortable self catering apartments which have everything you could need, possibly a bit more. The atmosphere of the place was so homely - from the welcome from Mike to the whole experience. The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Free internet usage and a whole library of books and magazines was a huge plus for us

We visited in September, and found this was a very friendly hotel, the owner seems a bit brusque but he's very helpful and even loaned us beach umbrellas to save us money. The rooms were excellent, with great views, but noisy due to cockerels crowing from 4am onwards and the perpetual barking dogs. That was the only downer, we had trouble sleeping because of it. But I guess ear plugs would remedy that. Great location. 10 minute walk to the town centre. Parking if you hire a car and a the place has certainly has an oasis feel to it, a kind of fairy grotto of swings and seats nestling in the greenery. There's a supermarket five minutes walk away, and overall, a very good location.
Be aware you must purchase your own toilet roll. The first one is free, but after that you're on your own! Very good room service. Would go again.

Room Tip: It may be quieter at the front of the hotel, rather than the back. If the cockerels don't get y...

Just returned from a week at the Oasis 21st to 28th September . This was the second year we have visited Skiathos at the end of September and our first stay at the Oasis on the recommendation of friends . We were met at the airport and immediately upon arrival were struck by the easy going friendly atmosphere of the Oasis . As I see from other reviews we were also treated to a trip in Mikes speedboat to Arkos island where he even insisted on paying for a lovely meal . Later in the week Eleni ( Mikes wife) took us to visit Evangelistria Monastry. The room was spacious and well equipped and meals were available all day and late into the evening . There is an extensive menu good prices and the portions are large . There was live entertainment twice and a quiz night during our stay with a happy hour where we were surprised by getting two drinks when we only paid for one at the already low oasis prices . The location is an easy walk to the centre of Skiathos town harbour and bus stop with a regular service that will get you to the many wonderful beaches for a only 2 euro each We went for a 9 hour boat trip to the Mamma Mia locations for only 12.50 euro each . For the second year running the weather was perfect .Thank you Mike Eleni and the friendly staff for a wonderful holiday . We hope to come back again . Ros and Ross

What can I say. Previous reviews have summed the place up fairly well - very clean, comfortable self catering apartments which have everything you could need, possibly a bit more. The atmosphere of the place was so homely - from the welcome from Mike to the whole experience. The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Free internet usage and a whole library of books and magazines was a huge plus for us.

We stayed from 14 -28 September and were unlucky enough to touch down at Skiathos airport to drizzly rain. This turned into a torrential downpour which lasted for 4 days - disappointing to say the least but hey, no-one can do anything about the weather. Mike made up a lovely log fire in the lounge/bar area and the books, magazines and games got put to good use - along with a few glasses of Mythos!

The apartments were clean and comfortable and had everything you could need - hairdryer, toiletries, clean towels and sheets every few days which was a huge plus. The cock crowed every morning without fail which woke us up at some unearthly hour each day but after a few days we were able to turn over and go back to sleep.

You can have all your meals at the bar area shoudl you want to do so - the few we had were wonderful and extremely good value. There was always something on in the evenings and a couple of nights we didn't feel like going out but still had a great night, happy hour a few night s a week meant you could sample all of the cocktails!

This was out first experience of a self catering holiday and we would have no hesitation in going back to Skiathos and would look no further than the Oasis - it was a good place to be.

I only have 1 negative comment and I know that I am in the minority here - I am afraid of dogs and the family have a few dogs which were occasionally allowed to run free. The dogs were family pets and very well cared for (as were all the animals on the property) - please keep them on the lead in public areas................not everyone shares your passion.

We will definately revisit Skiathos and would not hesitate to recomment the Oasis.

Just returned from a week at the oasis 21st sept to 28th. Had a fantastic week. From start to finish the holiday was so relaxing. As soon as we arrived the welcome from Mike and staff was something else! Such a lovely guy and very friendly. The apartments we had u2 and u3 were brilliant. Very clean and well equipped for a self catering holiday. Even down to the little touches like slippers toiletries etc.... The free use of cycles, table tennis, games etc also small gym was very good. Also a fantastic trip on Mikes boat with his lovely family was something we never expected and have never had before on previous holidays. The island of Skiathos is absolutley beautiful ad unspoilt and the people are very very friendly. Thank you Mike Elena and staff for a wonderful holiday will definately return!!!!!! By the way hope the wasp sting has healed. From Sue and Col room u2

We have just returned from 2 great weeks!!

The Oasis is an amazing place to stay, from the moment you get off the coach the welcome from the staff is amazing! Mike buys you a drink then gives you lots of useful information. The rooms are spotless and have everything you need and more! The pool area is lovely with plenty of sunbeds and hammocks, and there is plenty to do from pool, table tennis, even a small gym!
There is always something on in the evening from music to a weekly quiz night (which we even managed to win one week with a bit of help from S&S!)

Mike even takes guests out fishing now and again and I even managed to catch 2, fluke I think!

Its a short walk into the town which has a lovely harbor surrounded by bars and restaurants and in the old town there is plenty more restaurants and bars in the main street and down the little side streets.

Thanks to Mike and all the staff at the Oasis for making it such a relaxed and friendly place to stay, we will defiantly be back
