First time to Skopolos and thoroughly 'chilled out'.
If you are looking for lots of local nightlife with numerous bars and tavernas then stay in Skiathos with all the youngsters. This hotel is plotted on a hillside so transport is recommended otherwise it would be difficult unless you stay in the hotel all day. The hotel rooms are beautifully decorated throughout. The views are stunning and the island is quite amazing. The food is excellent and cooked by Andromaki (mum). Breakfast is typical greek so don't go expecting a full english style 'fry up' ?
Antonios the owner and his family are extremely friendly people and will always help you if you need it in any way. Antonios actually took me out sea fishing on a couple of the evenings for a few hours. Great fun, Hilarious at times. Particularly as we were fishing for 'calamari (squid)'. Catch one of them and get your umbrella out lol !!
Vasili and Evelyn who help out at the bar and in the restaurant are also extremely nice people. If you are looking for a very relaxing holiday then this little place is paradise. Lovely people (as I think the Greeks are in general anyway by the way) and lovely position overlooking the Aegean.
I would definately recommend this hotel to those that are looking for a friendly, relaxing vacation.
IAs I said earlier though, if you want the fast lane with all of the nightlife go somewhere different.
Our thanks to Antonios, Andromaki, Evelyn and Vasili for a wonderful holiday and I would like to think that we can get back again next year...Will add photos asap
