Just back from a week at la Piscine, we stayed in room 201 which on arrival was lovely - clean, spacious, a great balcony and a welcoming bottle of wine. All the staff, from Olga on reception to the bar staff and cleaners were all so friendly, agree with all previous comments that this hotel is just lovely, however our only complaint would be the noise from the bar. Our room was above the bar area which had the speakers on the ceiling which means that all the rooms above the bar enjoy the gentle 'thud' of music until the small hours! Which was very disappointing, however when another room was available we were able to move which gave us a more peaceful stay!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms above the bar area

My wife and I arrived at La Piscine on 2 September for two weeks and had a fantastic time. As previous reviewers have stated, this must be the best hotel on the island - spotless reception, pool area and bedrooms, great food and fantastic staff (especially Olga on reception who always had a beeming smile to welcome you with, was able to give us great advice on which beaches to go to and how to get there and organised a very special evening for my wifes 50th birthday).

The hotel is only a ten minute walk from the town and a couple of minutes from bus stop no. 3 which is convenient for getting out and about.

Recommendations:

1) go to Ag Eleni beach (bus stop 25) and stay to watch the sunset. Theres a lovely bar at the end of the beach with comfy chairs facing the sea so you can relax with a beer and watch the sun go down.

2) attend the hotel bbq on Sunday nights - 12 euro per person, great value, great range of salads, meats, then a desert and the first night we also go a after dinner drink thrown in.

3) go down to the port at 11.15am and watch the ferry come in and unload / load - its like a circus!

4) just wander around the side streets of Skiathos town - you will find some lovely little squares, typical blue balconies with bouganvilia and just enjoy discovering whats round the next corner.

5) have a meal at the Last Step restaurant, just beside the clocl tower at the top of the steps. Probably the best food in town and fantastic views.

6) definately a couples hotel which was great for us as we dont have kids and dont like a pool full of them

Only downside to the whole holiday - if I never see another moped it will be too soon!!

Room Tip: You may want to request a balcony or an upgrade to a suite

Once again we had the pleasure of spending two fabulous weeks at La Piscine having wanted to return from our stay in 2010. We simply love this place. A fantastic hotel with everything you could want, lovely comfy beds and pillows, spotlessly clean (thank you Angela), super view over the pool which is gorgeous, wonderful food and service second to none from the boys, Michael, Thomas, Bobby and the others whose names I unfortunately can't remember (it's an age thing)! The weekly BBQ on Sunday evening is a not to be missed experience, the food is simply gorgeous and for 12 euro's it's excellent value. A welcoming drink on arrival and the complimentary bottle of wine and fresh fruit in the room are the special touches which sets it apart. The food from the Crazy Cow Restaurant at the hotel is fabulous too, we've never tasted hamburgers so good! The free Wifi in the hotel lobby was an added bonus this year and much appreciated. Being located within a very easy walking distance to the town and its many delights, makes it a great base and it's so easy to catch a regular bus to the many beaches on the island.
As has been said a great many times before, Olga on reception is an asset to this hotel, always a kindly word and helpful advice whenever you need it, she's a star! (Photo's to follow Olga!)
We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending La Piscine and hope to stay for a third time next year which obviously speaks volumes!

We have just returned from here. This place is a great hotel, its spotlessly clean, the pool is a good size and there is free WIFI in the lobbey and pool area. Its not well equipped for children, which suited us as we prefer a quieter place without any kids running round.

We ate in the hotel on the first night, the food is good quality, although we thought the menu was very limited and there wasnt much in the way of authentic greek food.

The lunch menu isnt great but is ok for a snack. The drinks are very expensive, i was paying £3 for a coffee each day in the afternoon from the bar, but the place is of a high standard and with high standards, come high prices.

The staff are all very friendly, nothing is too much trouble, this was a good experience and we would definately return.

The location is very good. There is a big supermarket up on the main road 5 mins away, town is a 10 min walk away.

Room Tip: Take your own kettle, there are no coffee making facilaties in the rooms

We stayed at La Piscine for our honeymoon. Naturally we researched our choice of hotel prior to booking our holiday & La Piscine was great. The hotel was beautiful, well maintained, clean & welcoming. Staff couldn't have done more. The pool was a good size, clean & not too cold! Plenty of loungers, both positioned in he sun for the torch worshippers & shade for those that need some protection! Our room was lovely. Each day was 30'c so the excellent air con was a relief! We received a nice bottle of chilled wine & fresh fruit on our arrival which was a nice touch. It was my wife's birthday during our stay & the staff were excellent. I wanted to arrange a birthday cake & some nice flowers to be delivered in the morning....I had a conversation with the lady at the front desk & she very kindly took care of the rest. When we came down for Breakfast the flowers were displayed on our table, we had Breakfast & then staff brought out a beautiful chocolate cake to which everyone sang Happy Birthday. My wife was very embarrassed which was exactly what I wanted her to feel! Breakfast time was nice as the food was a good mix of Traditional English & Continental foods. We ate out each evening & staff were only too happy to recommend great Greek restaurants. The best places in Skiathos to eat are by the Harbour. Kontiki was our favourite, great Calamari, Greek Salad, Saganaki, Mousaka - fish dishes were great too! We would recommend La Piscine without hesitation!
