We have just returned from Skopelos today and i could not wait to write a review. We stayed at the Hotel Dionyssos for 10 days and we were very sad to leave.
The Hotel is excellent, it has a beautiful traditional Greek decor however is very basic, but do not let this throw u! After reading many reviews on here we were terrified about how we would find the rooms, however we could not have wanted more. They were spacious, well air conditioned which is a life saver in 38oc heat, and had loads of room. we stayed in room 221, and it has a beautufl view from the balcony! especially in warm evenings. It is dated and plain...but its greece! The hotel was busy but great, breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, ham, cheese, honey and toast. I went with my boyfriend, however there was a lovely mixture of other couples, young and older, families with young children, and groups of friends. The staff could not do enough for us, and were very kind and helpful at all times, they always wore a friendly smile and were very welcoming, especially the bar man who we made very good friends with! The pool is fantastic, with so many sun beds you will never struggle to find one, and on saturday nights a delicious BBQ is served! along with music and dancing by the lit pool which you MUST go to!
The town its self is by far the most beautiful i have ever seen, and im not sure why some people have complained about walking up the hill to the hotel? it is literally a 2 second walk up a small hill. many love the location as it is in perfect distance to walk to the shops and the buzzing nightlife, with bars and restaurants along the glowing harbour, however is a perfect escape for peace and quiet too.
Go on the glass bottom boat trip! its only 20 euros for 8 hours! you will visit many places, which includes a marine park, an enclosed beach which we dive off the boat from and many other amazing places which you would not even no existed! including a cave!
We will be returning next year, and cant wait to see the lovely staff again =)
