We spent a week on Skopelos, staying at the Alkistis apartments.
The apartments are a bit under a mile from Skopelos centre, surrounded by pleasant countryside. It's an easy walk because it's down hill all the way. Taxis back are reliable and are always 5 euros. There's also a regular, free hotel bus to and from Skopelos.
The apartments themselves are clean, fairly spacious, with comfy beds, good, quiet air conditioning. Friendly cats wander around, and, yes, there are a couple of roosters within earshot - what do you expect? It's the countryside!
Two things really set the place apart.
Firstly, the pool is fantastic. Enormous, clean, but informal and relaxing. The bar is just next to it, too.
Secondly the staff are extraordinarily friendly and helpful. They gave us lifts into Skopelos when we'd missed the free bus. They gave us recommendations for the best bars and restaurants in Skopelos. They arranged the Sea Cat back to Skiathos for us, arranged car hire at the best rate, etc. etc. Nothing was too much trouble.
The island of Skopelos is a lovely place. Very green. We hired a car, so we explored, driving through twisty mountain roads and past the many beaches and small costal villages. The beaches are mostly shingly. Kastani beach was particularly good, nestled at the foot of a beautiful pine-covered valley. You can scramble or swim across the rocks to the next beach along, enjoy the free sunbeds, and there are even four-poster beds too(!) We also took a very pleasant boat trip one day from Skopelos to the neighbouring islands for swimming & sightseeing
