“A real gem!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

My partner and I have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Oasis, it was our first visit and one to be repeated I am sure! Upon arrival we were invited to sit in the lounge area and were treated to Oasis special cocktails whilst Mike ran through the basics with us. We opted to hire a fan rather than the air conditioning and it was more than sufficient. We were shown to our room, D5 which was on the quiet side of the complex. The room was perfect, no direct sunshine which kept in nice and cool with a selection of hammocks and a table and chairs in the sunshine of the garden area. We had our own patio area with a table and chairs which was very comfortable. The bathroom was clean and well laid out, hot water occasionally evaded us when showering in the evening but this is commonplace in Greece and in fact in most hot countries at peak times. A cool shower is no hardship after a day in the sunshine. The kitchen area is well equipped with a fridge, double hotplate, microwave, toaster and kettle. The cupboards are stocked with plenty of crockery and pans for cooking but we chose only to use the kettle and the toaster as the food at the bar and in the restaurants was too tempting. There was a tea towel, washing up liquid and a washing up sponge so no need to pack those.

Mike and Eleni are wonderful hosts and quickly made us feel relaxed and part of their holiday family. Mike has a wealth of knowledge and is always available to offer advice, recommendations or assistance wherever you need it. He has a way of making you feel part of the family without intruding on your holiday, a true gift. The pool is lovely for a dip and there are plenty of sunbeds available. The grounds are beautifully kept and all the staff do a great job. It was lovely to see the chickens and ducks wandering around their enclosure and we quickly made friends with the dogs, I would have loved to have seen them wandering around but do understand that not everyone is a dog fan so Mike has obviously taken this on board and ensures that they are kept under control at all times. I was a little sad to see the horses weren't there!

We were always greeted with a friendly hello and a smile by everyone. There is something very special about sitting on a comfy sofa with Ouzo in hand watching a large screen in the warmth of Skiathos! The Oasis is perfectly placed for walking into town with a supermarket close by and a wealth of shops and restaurants. There is a beach within a pleasant half hour walk and the bus is very easy to use to access the many other beaches along the coast. Mike helped us organise hire of a bike and gave us a very helpful map with some pointers showing places to visit. We had great fun exploring a little further afield and had the security of Mike's phone number in the event of any difficulties (of which there were none). After 9 years together my partner proposed to me and I can think of no better place for such a special event. This is not a 5 star hotel but I am grading it as a Greek self catering establishment and as such there is no place we would rather stay. Thanks Mike, Eleni and all your staff for making our stay so memorable xx

Room Tip: Room D5 is on the end and faces the stables where the chickens are housed, nice and quiet and cool.

A very pleasant complex of apartments set in well maintained grounds, within 5-10 minutes of the harbour front.
The apartments and grounds are kept very clean and tidy by the staff who work very hard to maintain the complex.
There are more than enough sun loungers near the pool and in the large grassed area arrondissement the site. There are also quite a few hammocks under the trees if you want to keep cool.
The bar area is open till late with a good range of drinks and 'special of the day'. Mythos Draught is 3.50E.
Snacks and meals are served around the bar/pool area and are of very good quality and size!!!

There is good WiFi coverage around the site.

Air Con is an extra cost but we found it worthwhile ....fans are also available.
Mike is the boss and runs the whole set up and is very friendly and approachable and full of information about what to do and where to go.

Overall an excellent base from which to explore and enjoy Skiathos, although fairly close to the airport the aircraft noise is minimal.

Room Tip: Request upper floor...better overall views.

We have just returned for another glorious holiday at the Oasis, 14 years of fun and sun at the Oasis and it is even better than year number 1.
As always Mike, Eleni, George, Marie Elena and all the staff are always friendly, welcoming and will do anything to make sure guests have the best holiday possible.
We met up with old friends who like us just can't get enough of the Oasis and made new friends who I'm sure we will see again in years to come.
Can't wait for the end of August to return again for my girlie week with Erica. See all the gang then- Valentina have you got George back yet for tricking you into drinking sea water!!!!

Room Tip: Just lie back relax and enjoy all the Oasis has to offer.

On our arrival we were met by Mike plus Flash the dog who made us feel very welcome. The studio had twin beds, small kitchen,and an en suite, all very clean. Room was cleaned everyday,.Small swimming pool which was very clean and plenty of sun beds, no need to get up early. Food at Oasis was good and the cocktails were good. 10 minutes walk to Skiathos town.

Room Tip: all rooms seem to be good

WE often go to Oasis to see all of our friends who stay Mike and Eleni the entertainment and
friendliness shown to everyone is second to none.Mike is a great host willing to go the extra few steps to make sure everyone who comes to Oasis has a feeling of being in the family.I would not hesitate to recommend the Oasis to anyone if they ask me for a good place to stay on the island.

Returned last week after a 2 week stay at Oasis. Stayed there with my friend Maggie and had a most enjoyable holiday. The Oasis exceeded our expectations - a most beautiful lush garden setting. The atmosphere is very friendly and we immediately felt at home and very relaxed. Mike and Eleni are so friendly and welcoming - all the staff are great. Not surprised they have so many repeat bookings as this place could not be bettered!
Cant wait to return to fabulous Skiathos and would not dream of staying anywhere else!

I can't help but agree with the majority of previous reviews, the Oasis provides all you need for a good self catering apartment, a little more than you normally get with Greece! The provision of microwave, toaster , kettle, washing up liquid, and hairdryer etc. make your life easier. The rooms are basic but ample for your needs. Cleaned daily and towels and sheets changed once in our 7 days stay. As mentioned in previous reviews, the grounds of the oasis are beautiful, well kept and maintained. Mike runs a 'tight ship', and is proud of his apartments and rightly so! The young staff group (some of which are family) work extremely hard to meet the needs of guests. They are polite, courteous friendly and professional, The oasis offers those 'nice' extra touches, such as fruit when you are sitting around the pool on the comfortable beds. Happy hour (buy one get one free) 3 nights a week and entertainment. The position of the apartments was perfect 'a nice stroll into town', with easy access to ferries, water taxis and the buses.We used the buses to have a look around the island a it only cost 2 euro's(From Bus Stop1) to visit bus stop 26 and the lovely beach there! The Local big supermarket, just a few minutes walk away. We visited several restaurants in Skiathos town and never had a poor meal. We ate at the oasis a couple of times, and again, the meals are ample..my husband and I shared a spaghetti Bolognese, which was lovely. We stayed with friends and the lads made good use of the pool table, table tennis table We spent some of our afternoons sitting in the harbour and would recommend the café/bar Mythos the young waiter was attentive and but not pushy, and the Mythos have a happy hour (which lasts 3 hours) and would highly recommend the cocktails 1/2 price so 4.5 euro's
All in all Skiathos is a beautiful island, and I would highly recommend it, and the Oasis, we had a lovely holiday.
