Really enjoyed my stay at Selenunda and would definitely return. Stayed for 5 nights in July 2012. The view is incredible, as the hotel is situated in the hill above the Loutraki port (the port that services Glossa). The hotel is 150+ steps up from the port, or a short ride up the road. We were met at the ferry by the staff and driven up with our bags. The rooms are very large, with small kitchen area, porch, wifi, an, air conditioning, tv, and clean bathroom. It's a bit rustic and the shower is a little tough (no curtain to protect the rest of the bathroom from getting wet). The staff is wonderful and this hotel is a great place from which to explore Skopelos. Very quiet relaxed hotel. If you want nightlife, stay in Skopleos town.
If steps are not a problem for you, going down the steps from the hotel takes just a few minutes. A bus leaves from Loutraki a few times a day, going all the way to Skopelos town and stopping at Glossa and many beaches along the way (as of 7/2012 the bus departs Loutraki at 7, 9, 11:30, 1:30, 3:30, 5:30 and 8 and takes about an hour to get to Skopelos town). Loutraki has about 5 restaurants / cafes and a market and Glossa has at least 4 restaurants, 2 bakeries, and a market. there is a walking path connecting the hotel with Glossa which takes about 30 mins uphill and 15 mins down.
