La Piscine Art Hotel
Ranked #2 of 84 Hotels in Skiathos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 20, 2013

This hotel delivers in every aspect of providing the most enjoyable and relaxing holiday you could wish for. The accomodation is stylish and staff are exceptional in every way and no request appears to be too much trouble in order to satisfy their guests. The cuisine is A La Carte and the hotel boasts an excellent range of quality Greek wines, which must be sampled, many from a boutique winery and all at reasonable prices. The swimming pool and surroundings are very relaxing with the pool bar serving a good selection of drinks. The bustling Skiathos town centre is only 7 minutes walk away and has a wonderful and very diverse range of quality shops - check out all the side streets.This hotel has a very spacious car park and the bus service around the island is also very good. Many great beaches are dotted around all over the island. This is our second visit to La Piscine and the only hotel we have ever returned to on any of our holidays and we look forward to future visits

Room Tip: Best rooms are over reception area but book early to avoid disappointment!

You are made to feel very welcome here by olga , my lady Vera , oli, mr Canada ( Costas - i think )
Dimitris and everybody .

Ok you may have differences about the control of a/c but forget that .
The decor , food , cleanliness , politeness , appearance , attention to detail etc cannot be faulted.

Now you may know that I'm very fussy - so the downside ............ a bigger variation on the crazy cow menu would be good and chilled fruit juice at breakfast too.

If you want a treat in your life , stay at La Piscine Art Hotel - you won't be disappointed .

I'll stay again and hopefully very soon

Room Tip: Book a room overlooking the pool from main block over reception

After reading some of the negative reviews, I'm shocked at what you are moaning about, sometimes things are out of our control including our own homes. so what's the difference in having aircon. problems than when your heating breaks down at home?
la Piscine is thee nicest and friendliest hotel you will ever come across . the staff from the cleaners to owners are just simply the best. Olga, Vasilli, Miss Eleni, Makis, Dean, Vera, Constantina, Micalis everyone is just excellent, and there is no question that to them their customers come first! nNothing. Is too much trouble.
The problem they have is customers who are so hardto please, no matter what ever The Hotel does for them, they're never pleased. We've seen this first hand at La Piscine and you people shouldn't come on holiday if all you do is moan!
We have been coming to this hotel every year since 2006, and just love it, we got married here too. Skiathos to us is La Piscine.
Other hotels having no comparison in style,facilities and ambience than La Piscine. Ignore negatives, the positives far out way the negatives you have been reading. these people are picky, and hard to please and always will be.........

LA PISCINE IS BRILLIANT! We continue to promote La Piscine as it never fails to deliver...

Just back from eleven glorious nights in Skiathos and at La Piscine.
Had a lovely room overlooking the pool and mountains which was spacious and clean with fridge and free safe.
The decor of the hotel is lovely with lots of little places to relax but also a friendly bar when required.
The staff from Olga to the gardner were all so friendly and helpful that it just made you feel special and nothing was too much trouble. Reception were brilliant and how people can moan about just asking for the air con to be turned on beggars belief! You were never made to feel uncomfortable asking or ringing down.
Lovely pool and very comfy loungers and fresh towels and no need to reserve beds was a delight.
The crazy cow restaurant was superb and so lovely to have breakfast by the pool every day as well. Great choice and all well cooked meant a great start to the day.
Returning guests are treated like royalty but so were we on this our first visit. There is no special treatment but some people do spend more time at the bar so therefore are well known, nothing different to anywhere!
The hotel is a little expensive but you get treated so well, the location is perfect and the town, buses and water taxi's are just minutes away so everything just works to provide a lovely relaxing holiday. All the guests talk to each other which is also nice and we made some good friends as well.
Thank you To everyone at La Piscine for a superb holiday, our first in Greece and we hope to see you again next year.

Having returned from the most wonderful holiday at La Picine Hotel, we were most surprised
to see the Trip Adviser comment that returning guests are given preferential treatment over
first time guests, this is NOT the case.
This was our first visit and from the moment we arrived Olga and the very sexy Vera greeted us in a very friendly & helpful manner.

This is the friendliest hotel we have ever stayed in and every member off staff went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect for us. Geaorge, Manolis & Stellios were most attentive & the evenings spent with Visillas, Michalis & Dean were great fun. Visillas certainly knows his wines (and Brandy) & Dean you make a great cocktail & Michalis bring on the Vodka strawberry!

We had booked for Bed & Breakfast, but The Crazy Cow Restaurant was so good that we ate there 11nights out of 14! The food was so nice and the atmosphere was lovely, with outside dining with candles & lanterns all around the pool. Kostas & Ori gave us great service. A special thanks to Lovely Ori (Oriola!) who became very special to us,

Obviously the reason there are so many returning guests is because they are treated so well on their first visit. Olga you are fantastic & spend so much time with your guests to make sure every one is happy. you and all the staff made us feel really special and we can't wait to return. Hopefully we will be back again in May.

This is simply the best hotel in the world-Superb friendly staff, lovely facilities and a brilliant restaurant the Crazy Cow where the fillet steak is to die for.

Also they own a smaller hotel called Vigles which offers you panaoramic views of Skiathos, again friendly staff, lovely rooms and fantastic food.

You will come to either hotel once and then come time and time again
