Reviewed August 20, 2012

What a terrible review by Londonflyerlondon. I agree that everyone has a right to review a destination. However I personally feel some injustice has been done here to a very hard working family who will do all they can to ensure that your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. I have been to Pelagos for 5 years running and have booked for next year as well. Skala is a great place and the Pelagos is the best Greek accomodation we have stayed in, and we have stayed in many!
We have also stayed in many of the rooms in Pelagos and loved every one of them. Cooking facilities are ok for breakfast etc. If you want to do a Sunday roast then more fool you, the local restaurants are great and so is the food at the Pelagos. The barbecue at Pelagos is a great evening with a short stroll home and great food. What more can I say. The Pelagos , Maria and her family are the best!!!

We found the apartment to be well maintained with a fridge and cooking facilities, although we ate out for all our meals either at the Pelagos pool bar or in Skala itself. A nice touch (we thought) was a complimentary bottle of water chilling in the fridge when we arrived!

The room was cleaned every day and towels changed mid-week.

The owners/staff were extremely friendly & very accommodating.

Skala itself was a lovely town with a huge choice of places to eat & drink. A buzzing place in the evening, but no excessive noisy night-life. The main road through the town is closed-off to traffic at night (apart from scooters it seems!) making it safer for pedestrians. There is a ruin of a well-preserved Roman villa in the town which was awesome! Well worth a look.

Skala is only a 10 minute walk from the apartment and closer than we had envisioned from previous reviews, but beware of the short but steep climb to the apartment!

We had a fabulous holiday and would highly recommend a visit. We would definately go again.

I have just returned from a two week stay at these apartments and i would recommend it as the accommodation was excellent the rooms where cleaned every day, bedding and towels changed often. These apartments have everything you need and are located in a good area. The family who run the pelagos are fantastic Maria and her two daughters sia and irene couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and made us feel so welcome (such a lovely family) this is our third year staying at these apartments so the past review from londonflyerlondon is totally inaccurate and the pictures show a room that is a typical Greek apartment so i think in my opinion that LFL review should be ignored. Just to add the food is lovely from the pool bar and the barbecue night is a must as the food is delicious. Will defiantly be going back.
Thanks Maria, Sia and Irene

We stayed here in July, lovely accomodation - everything you could want.
The apartments / studios are big and well furnished, and very very clean.
All areas of the apartments are well tended, clean and tidy, the staff are very helpful and friendly.
The apartments are a short walk from town and the beach, with the only downside of this being the steep hill as you get back to the pelagos, but don't let this put you off or you will miss out on some lovely accomodation.
A tip - don't buy bottled water in town and they have to carry it back as they sell it in packs at the bar.

We returned from the Pelagos on sunday. When we arrived, it was dark and we were led up a very steep hill to room 18. From a past review this is was not very good. How wrong can you be. The cooking facilities are basic, but we didnt go to cook. There was a comfy bed, a shower with hot water and a shower curtain, from past trips to Greece this is a luxury.
Once we settled into the room, we went to the pool bar for a drink before bed, and was welcomed by one of the most friendliest people I have ever met, Maria.
Morning came to a wonderful view from the room, and a wonderful smile and welcome from Marias daughters.
The pelagos was perfect, a great atmosphere from the olympics, great drinks, great food, plenty of sunbeds, a lovely cool pool, everywhere was spotlessly clean, a credit to Maria and her family, they couldnt do enough for you, I had an ear infection while away, they were very helpful and always checked on me to see if I was ok. You must go to the Pelagos with no hesitation, we will be returning in the future.
Here is a rough guide to some prices of things -
Sunbeds on the beach for a set 5 euros,
large beer 3 euros, cocktails 5 euros, breakfasts 5 euros, evening meal 2 people starters, main and a bottle of wine about 30 - 40 euros.
I have been to Greece several times and found this trip to be very reasonable in the price on things.
There is plenty to do trip wise, lovely places to eat and drink, and a lively nightlife without being too overwhelming.
We had a wonderful time here and it was over too soon, Im sure you will agree with me, the Pelagos is a must!!!

I write this in response to the dreadful review by LondonFlyerLondon as I feel I must defend the hard working owner of Pelagos, Maria and her two delightful daughters. I make no excuse - for the last two seasons-2010&2011, I was the Olympic rep for Pelagos, and got to know the family well. They are hard working, eager to please and their total commitment to their guests is commendable - please read all the other excellent reviews if you are in any doubt.
I no longer work as a rep, but, like many others have fallen in love with the island and skala in particular, and had no hesitation in staying at Pelagos this year (2012) for 2 weeks (10-24/6) in the same block as LFL. I can only assume that LFL has never been in Greek accommodation before - as a proper greek freek, as I have been for the last 30 years, Pelagos is probably the best accommodation I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. It is incredibly clean, the rooms are of an excellent standard and nothing is too much trouble for Maria and her daughters. Admittedly, you would struggle to cook a 3 course meal on the stove provided,but that is typical of greek accommodation and there are so many excellent eating opportunities in skala. As for the pipes in the room, show me a room in greece where this does not appear, and I'll show mine in woolies window!!
The pool is excellent - clean with plenty of new, comfortable loungers, bar snacks freshly prepared to order, all with a very subtle back-ground music.
So go on - if you have any doubt about spending your holiday at Pelagos, book it and see! But don't tell everyone how good it is- we don't want any more riff raff!
