Livadaki Village Hotel
Ranked #14 of 23 Hotels in Skala
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Just back from a week at Livadaki Village Hotel and enjoyed it very much indeed. The rooms are clean, fresh and perfectly acceptable for this level of hotel. Set at the top of a little hill overlooking Skala the hotel provides a peaceful place to relax and/or use as a base for moving around the beautiful island.
Plenty of space to sit on sunbeds or at tables in the pool/patio area. Very helpful management and there is always somebody around to help.
I am not sure that the hotel has yet quite got to grips with clients' expectations regarding food and drink. The breakfast is decidedly boring and a bit of a let down. Exactly the same fare every day tends to disappoint and send people down the hill for a "proper" breakfast now and then. With just a bit of imagination like a change of cereals and eggs on offer without extra charge this place could be remarkable.
Skala is a nice place to holiday, still quiet for the most part with a wide choice of restaurants. The beach chairs and parasols are EU5 a day hire for a set. We found the best most relaxing part of the beach to be the far end closest to the village. The hill down to the village is not too daunting in either direction but should you not feel up to walking back after a heavy meal, a taxi costs EU5.
We thoroughly enjoyed both the island and the hotel. With just a little more thought about the food offers and perhaps bundling in the air-conditioning rather then charging for it separately, I would have given the hotel 5 stars.

A fantastic 2 weeks end of June/July.
A lovely situated hotel with wonderful views. The hotel is very clean throughout with well keep gardens. The pool area is very relaxing and quiet that makes a very relaxing holiday.

As mentioned before there is a hill into Skala, but if your reasonably fit it's not a problem, you can get a taxi into town for about €5.

Like many reasonably priced hotels the breakfast is a continental breakfast.

On the service side, Sophia the owner could not have been more helpful in accommodating your needs.
We found all the staff to be very friendly.

We found the hotel to very good value for money and we would be happy to return.

We stayed last 2 weeks of June. So lets get the negatives out of the way first, sems like the upgrade is a sea veiw with an extra window, rooms are pretty small with not much storage. Breakfast is quite poor & on the cheap. Also, we like to have a drink after our meal in the bar before bed but it isnt really a bar & it all shuts up at 12 anyway. Then there is the HILL, you do have to be pretty able to climb it, we did a couple of times but it is hard. The positives were the lovely view, the room was clean & clean towels most days & the staff very friendly. Would not stay again though as it was a bit too quite :o)

Very nice and quite place to stay and relax. The hotel is small and guarantees beautiful views on the sea. Situated about 600 m. from the beach, on a hill so it's requires a little of walking. It migh be a problem for families with small children. The hotel, pool and rooms are very clean. Continental breakfast (bread, cheese, ham, jam, honey, cornflakes, tomato) is enough to start a nice day. I do plann to go there one more time :)

Situated on the hillside overlooking Skala is the LIvadaki hotel. The hotel is well finished with the rooms built and situated to make the most of the excellent view looking across the water to mainland Greece and Zante.
The hotel and rooms are cleaned to a high standard ,well tended gardens and a lovely swimming pool and toddlers pool. It is a quiet hotel where mainly couples stay.
Rooms can be upgraded to suites at a cost but we found the standard room more than adequate for our needs. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
The hotel provides a continental breakfast which is very basic and offers very little choice however english breakfast and bar snacks are available to purchase.
There is no entertainment at the hotel but a walk into Skala will provide this as there are numerous restaurants and bars to suit all tastes.
As it situated on a hillside it probably isnt suitable for people with disabilities but there are taxis available at a cost of 5 euros into town.

Room Tip: Upper floors have best views but are accessed via stairs .

A lovely small hotel set up the hill from the main road. Upgraded via Thompson to a first floor, sea view room with lovely high ceiling. Was compact but furnished with modern fixtures and fittings and had a safety deposit box (20euros) and small mini bar style fridge. Lovely double doors opened onto a small balcony with an amazing view of the countryside and sea in the distance. Bed was large and comfortable. The bathroom had fully enclosed shower and clean towels throughout the week. High standards of cleanliness throughout and quiet and relaxed atmosphere. No awful piped music round the pool (although strangely someone thought it acceptable to play their own music out loud which slightly ruined the peace and relaxation) and no evening entertainment etc, and that's perfect in my book, with all manor of entertainment available in town should you need any. The pool bar sells drinks and had a snack menu (2.50 euros for a coke mind) and ice creams. Being a lazy bunch (and always rather full from the night before) we didn't have breakfast in the hotel so am unable to comment on the spread.

The walk down into town is a pleasant one and the walk up too if you are relatively fit although I'd recommend avoiding it in the midday sun as there is no shade.
The only negative thing I could comment on was the noise from adjoining rooms in the block. We were able to hear conversations and snoring and, ahem, toilet usage, chairs dragging on the floor and clanging and banging throughout our stay although I think we adjusted to it through the week. (after the first night I considered buying earplugs). It is obvious that our neighbours were not inconsiderate but that the construction of the building made noise travel very well! If no one else mentions this then it may have just been our particular room. That would probably be a reason to stop us returning usually, but to be honest this place was such good value for money in comparison to other hotels that, perhaps not. It was the cheapest by far and looking round at the other hotels could not see why.
If you're happy for a 10 min stroll to the beach and town and a 15 min trek back up and you want a quiet atmosphere without any of the unnecessary extras then this place is perfect (just maybe take some earplugs for bed time!)

We have just spent two weeks here, at the end of May , beginning of June. The Hotel is perfect if you want peace and Relaxation, and is ideal for couples looking to recharge their batteries. The hotel is not really suitable for young children.The hotel itself is spotless and well looked after. Sofia and her staff were wonderful and could not do enough too help. The room was excellent (we had a suite) with a beautiful view of the sea.(room 111).The only downside was we could of done with a bit more storage: e.g. a chest of drawers. The rooms are kept spotless and the beds are excellent. I would of given 5 stars but for the continental breakfast. This is the only minus point that ourselves and other residents staying were not happy about. It seemed it was done on the cheap. Processed cheese and ham,bread,cardboard cereals, sliced tomato with the only variation being they changed tomatoes for sliced oranges. Even the tea was like Gnats due to shortage of Teabags being put in.Also only one 3 slice toaster for the whole hotel.Though after some of us bought this up with the Thomson Rep we had another Toaster there the next day and extra teabags in the Tea. Saying this apart from that everything else about the hotel is first-rate and our stay was perfect. The pool is excellent, the staff fantastic and the view is to die for. I will say though if you are not very mobile the walk into Skala may hinder you as the hotel is up the mountainside. Going down is no problem, the walk up is quite a trial if you not too fit. Though you can get a cab for 5 euros from the beach front to the hotel. But to be honest, don't let this put you off as this Hotel really is a perfect place to stay. If you want party nights, with beer flowing and food all night then this is not the place for you. If you want Peace,relaxation,beautiful views and total calm then this the perfect place for you. Just a tip: if you do stay here, bring your own teabags and a travel kettle as there are no tea making facilities in the rooms. Skala itself is vibrant and is very clean and has numerous restaurants and the food is very good. Word of Warning !!!!! If you look at any menu and you fancy a Fillet Steak, IT IS NOT Fillet Steak but a fillet of beef. It is not a traditional English fillet steak !!! you have been warned!! Finally, we had a wonderful time and would recommend this hotel to to anyone.
