Me and my boyfriend stayed 2-9th september and it has to be said skala is gorgeous! However I thought people were whining when saying how far out the centre it is, but they were right. We are both 19 and healthy but in peak heat there is no way I would walk into town. We walked back a couple of nights it took us about 30-35 minutes and I dont walk slowly. There is a bus that runs regularlly into town though which is great.
Also taxis are only 5euro each way so its not bad.
I would recommend using the water taxis whilst there to get to other costal towns/bays, much cooler and more fun than sitting on a stuff coach!
We did email asking of a high up room but ended up ground floor because they were busy, which is fair enough. We had a terrace but it wasn't very private with people walking past. Also we had to keep the curtains shut all the time or people would be able to see right in our room.
The room was very clean and well equipped. However the beds were really really hard! I would strongly advise taking your own pillow as I got really bad neck ache from how solid theres where.
The staff are lovely and the pool bar is open all day great for drinks. The snack bar serves food at dinner time and is great prices and great food! fab salad bar. We stayed bed and breakfast. The breakfast was the same everyday but it was enough to set you up and the dinning area has beautiful views.
The pool area can not be knocked! Three big pools, beautifully clean, lots of loungers and sea views.. it doesnt get any better.
They have a tennis court where you can hire euipment for 8euros an hour, but do book at reception... and pay later on when its cooler!
We tried a different restaurant every night and were impressed every night apart from the old village, I had read lots of reviews about how good it was, so i was really unipressed! The food was horrible, we had two course each and did not enjoy any of it! The pines is lovely and flamingo!
Bar vito has a great atmosphere and is good for cocktails! You have to go to captins bar! they do the best (and biggest) cocktails ever, with a huge menu. even if you dont like cocktail they do normal drinks to but the atmosphere is fun and lively!
I wish I could go back!!!
Have an amzing holiday!
