“A little bit of Paradise”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We have stayed at Pandora for the past twenty six years. Obviously,we love it! Superb accommodation,finished to an extremely high standard. Beautifully situated overlooking Kolios Bay and provides a peaceful and relaxing holiday accommodation. Nelly,the owner,is lovely and speaks several languages.Together with her husband,Christos,they provide all that could be wished for from a self catering holiday. Skiathos is a beautiful Island with many perfect beaches. The many Tavernas provide excellent food and the local people are extremely friendly and sincere.
We have recently returned home following three weeks at Pandora and can't wait to return again next June. Thank you Nelly,yet again,for your wonderful hospitality.

Arrived at Skiathos Port without having booked any accommodation and was approached by a lady offering "very clean apartment". I was more than a little unsure, but could not have been more pleased. Immaculate is no over statement. The fittings and equipment in the kitchen were absolutely fantastic, compared to the usual Greek offerings of a few well used odd size pans, this offers all that you need to cook and eat a meal. The owner was extremely helpful and ironed a couple of shirts when I asked if there was an iron available. As a lone traveller, she also offered for me to join them for food and organised a taxi to the airport the following morning. Greek hospitality at its best

I stayed there in 2009 with a group of family friends and occupied almost all of the studios. The rooms looked nice, most of them were just refurbished in a traditional yet modern style. They offer privacy - own terrace for each of them, and in the same time we could easily meet and spend time together. Also for kids was nice to go from one to the other and to run all over the garden, which is huge. Rooms are quite large - we had 2 pax studio but there can easily be space for a family of 3 or 4. The apartments were big, with 2 separate rooms and living-room with sofa. The garden is very “greek” and beautiful and the view of the sea in the morning - unforgettable.
Also, there were sunbeds all over the garden where you can lay to rest and read in the hot afternoon, my guilty pleasure :)
The nearest beach is down the hill, a 5-7 minutes walk, but there are plenty of marvelous beaches all over the island that you can try. We loved Banana beach in the sunset - it's a must! The island is not very large so in 10 days you sure can try all the beaches around.

We have been staying at Pandora Apartments for 11 years running now, which I think says it all. We love the view from the balcony over the bay, and the apartments are spacious, extremely clean, and well-maintained. Here you get peace and quiet but you are within a stone's throw of several lovely tavernas; and no less than six excellent beaches (all sandy) are within walking distance. Pandora is extremely well situated, being accessible by bus or water taxi to Skiathos town, and by bus to the other end of the island Koukonourias, there are also several lovely walks locally including around Cape Kanapitsa. Nelly is an excellent host, we loved the homemade biscuits and jam she gave us this year. We will be back next year...

Room Tip: Choose a room on the top floor for an even better view of the sea.....

Too much noise from the street and the maid was knoking the door at 10-11 in the morning to tale the garbage, very annoing.
Nice view of the sea thow.

For the price (traveling in June) this is such a deal. Our studio apartment had everything one could possibly need, was in very good taste, and had a gorgeous panoramic view of a pine-covered hill, and the sea. Very quiet and in the middle of a beautifully kept garden, we enjoyed having breakfast on the porch surrounded by flowers and butterflies. The place was kept impeccably clean which is always a perk, and finding sweets on the table every now and then just added that extra sweetness to our feeling welcome. Definitely recommended and we're sending family here.

We (me, wife and son) stayed at Pandora in July this year, we weren't disappointed.

I think someone else said it in another review but this really is a bit of luxury in greece, with the facilities you get in the rooms, washing machine ! power shower! coffee maker now that's something you dont see every day in Greece. Bedroom is as you'd expect it with a ceiling fan and wooden shutters/glass windows, bed was rather comfy and not the usual concrete base.

The apartment also offers two balconies, one at the front and one at the back, which we found ideal when the sun was at its hottest on the front. Even comes with nice little table and chairs painted blue just for that extra authenticity! The balconies were certainly far enough apart if like us you like your own company but close enough should you want to make friends with the neighbours.

Views from these apartments are incredible overlooking Kolios bay and the gardens. Nelly is a perfect host and will help in anyway she can and watch out for the gorgeous cake she makes and leaves on your table.

Located at the top of a steep hill if you take the road, but there is a dirt road which takes you to it from the supermarket which is more gradual. Supermarket is well stocked with all the essentials and donuts to die for!

Hermes apartments are right next door with a great pool and kids pool, bar and very very good food. George is a hoot and kept our son entertained. They also have a big TV to keep you up to date with your sport should you need to.

Kolios beach is a short stroll away and is quite quaint and doesnt seem to get as crowded as the other beaches, it has a little beach taverna and parklng if you choose to drive. Kolios centre is a bit more than a short stroll away so really unless you get the bus down its a good idea to get a car, also very handy for getting into town because the buses get very very busy indeed. (Try Georgios water taxi from Nostos beach, cheap and relaxing).

One thing we found would absolutely top the pandora off would be a pool and perhaps a bar otherwise we loved it and had a great time, would definitely recommend it.
