My husband and myself have just returned (11th July) after two weeks at the Maria Yiannis.This was our third visit to Skiathos,our first to Maria Yiannis.We booked a room for three to have a bit more space,we were in one of the older blocks at the back and our room did not seem as big as some of the newer ones,it was okay though,basic but very clean and everything you needed.Towels and bedding were changed every other day.The beds were very hard and the pillows were lumpy.There are plenty of sun loungers by the pool,too many really as they were packed tightly together and most of them were not used as most people went to the beach.There is a big grassed area behind the loungers that is not used.We did notice that the owners dog used it for a toilet but they did remove it though,just be careful where you walk.It was a short walk to the beach,we went to the right near to the boat hire,two rows of loungers quieter than the middle part and a stream with fish and turtles in,everyone including us used to take bread to feed them.The nearest supermarket is just opposite the complex but if you are walking back from your evening meal near bus stop 18 there are three more,the staff in the Co-Op one are really friendly.If you turn left out of entrance and left at sign for Astoria hotel,follow the lane past the Sunrise Taverna and along the track over a field it brings you to most of the Taverna's on the road that runs parallel to the main road,it saves you risking your life on the very dangerous road that has no pavements.There are plenty of reasonably priced taverna's with good food our favourite was Kalivi opposite Villa Rosa but Sunrise,Ratatouille and Apaloosa are nice as well but it's just a personal choice.The bus service is very good numbered 1-26 (look at the map you can get in the airport) and it is very easy to find the other beaches.Taxi's do stop by the bus stops as well and cost not much more than the bus.We have been to Troulos before and these apartments are better situated than most,lots of properties are up steep tracks.Manos and his family keep the grounds immaculate and the two boys behind the bar during the day never stop working till late at night.The cleaner was okay but i think it's a bit of a cheek to put a note on the mirror asking you to tip her well as most people would do that anyway.All in all though we had a lovely holiday and would stay here again.
