Villa Apollon Skiathos
Ranked #24 of 84 Hotels in Skiathos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 5, 2011

Villa Apollon is a very special place with the most wonderful hosts - Dounia and Captain - who made our stay so memorable. We went on a family holiday with three teenage boys who are still talking about the fantastic hospitality and the amazing food that Captain and Dounia cooked on the BBQ. The views are breath-taking and the location is perfect. A two minute stroll to a lovely sandy beach with a couple of taverna’s serving delicious Greek food. Ten minutes from Skiathos town either by bus, taxi or the water taxi from the beach. Villa Apollon is the perfect location from which to explore the Island. The rooms were spotless and cleaned every day and the pool was so lovely it was difficult to leave.
Skiathos town is a haven of fabulous tavernas - although once we tasted Captain and Dounia’s fantastic food it was difficult to eat anywhere else – the spatchcock chicken was the best meal we had on the holiday!!
We just wanted to say a big thank you to you both for being such wonderful hosts and making our stay so special – as for the Captain’s gin and tonics, well what is there left to say other than we are looking forward to returning to give them another try!!! xx

This is our 2nd time at the Apollon and we were not by any means dissapointed, actually we were happily surprised that now Dounia delivers a yummy breakfast to start the day -on Sundays she provides a Champagne breakfast with salmon ,caviar,breads and lots of other yummy eats!
Dounia and Captain are the most delightful hosts... nothing is a problem!
Rooms are basic but clean with self catering facilities and wonderful views,great pillows by theway! however once tasted the Captains cooking , you will not need the kitchen area...his cooking is amazing !
A must try is his scumptious greek salad, steaks,saganakis I could go on.
Location of Villa is perfect -:
Amazing views, local bus stop (9), water taxi,( a wonderful way to go to town),beautiful pool, great beach.
Skiathos town is magical offering loads of great places to eat.... try 'Georges' barbeque at the top of the cushion steps, 'Asprolitheos' by the school, there are so many to choose from. However you cannot go past the Captains home cooking... put your order in and he will cook whatever you fancy!
I would just like to say a great big thank you to Captain and Dounia for their wonderful hospitality and the many hours of chat and discussions( too late into the night sometimes!!)
P.S .and of course his wonderful Plymouth Gin and tonic !!
We hpoe to return next year xx

First time to Skiathos Villa Apollon suberb prefectly positioned, Dounia and Captain made us so welcome, pool lovely & warm, air conditioned room very comfortable & cleaned every day with lovely big balcony overlooking the bay. We particularly enjoyed eating by the pool most days, either Dounia's lovely breakfasts or the excellent food cooked by Captain in the evenings on his spaceship BBQ. My area of expertise was the greek coffee in the mornings (!). We loved taking the water taxi from the nearby lovely beach to Sliathos and hired a car to go "off raod" to explore the beautiful beaches on the north of the Island.

We have been fortunate enough to visit the beautiful island of Skiathos many times over the years but this was our first stay at Villa Apollon and we can only praise the location, accommodation and hospitality of Dounia and the Captain. The self-catering apartments 'tick all the boxes' and the view is breathtaking. A huge plus is the beach opposite and the half-hourly water-taxi into Skiathos town as space on the buses become very limited in the evening and taxis sparse. We can highly recommend staying at Villa Apollon and is suitable for all ages.

Captain & Dounia were great host, and I loved my daily ice creams, and the food cooked on Captain's BBQ. A Great beach opposite for my water sports including a good water taxi into Skiathos town every half hour.

We will be back!!!
