We spent two nights at this hotel - just to have a look around the island. We had resisted booking a Skopelos boat trip on Skiathos as we thought we would do it here. Amazingly,we couldn't! The only boat trips available were to Alonyssos. We didn't want to rent a vehicle as we'd done that on Skiathos but found the only convenient way to get to a decent beach was by road. This was a bit disappointing. So instead we went to Alonyssos - which we absolutely loved. The trip was with Sporades Queen 1 and it was excellent. We went up to the Old Town which was beautiful and seems to be 20 years behind the rest of the islands. Swimming was lovely in the clear water.
To get to see the island of Skopelos we decided to cut short our stay and depart on the 7.15am cat back to Skiathos where we then booked the Mama Mia boat trip. We visited Kastani beach; Panormos beach and Milia. The sea was aquamarine and beautiful to swim at.
Back to the hotel - it was lovely to have a swim at the pool on returning from our days out and the walk to the town was enjoyable. The room was comfortable and rustic - but not like those on the modern part. It had a lovely view of the harbour and out to sea and of the town at night all lit up.
We had lunch at the hotel restaurant when we arrived and despite being told it was open until midnight - we waited approx 35 - 40 mins for a salad and club sandwich when there was only one other couple there. The staff were lovely and helpful. Reception staff were particularly friendly. We may stay again if we visit again.
