“Just back 6th June 2013”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Just back from Aeolos Beach, the home away from home. Angela, Chris and Michael always make you feel so welcome, our second trip but not our last for sure. Comfortable and easy going. Happy hour is always a good time to meet other guests and have a chat and wind down before a short stroll into Skala where you have a choice of many restaurants to suit whatever you fancy. In the hotel everything is on hand and the team at Aeolos Beach cannot be more helpful. If you decide to go we're sure you will have a great holiday.

Have just returned from our second visit to Aeolos . What a fantastic holiday! there simply isn't anything we would change. We love it there and feel as though we have made life long friends not just in Chris, Angela and Michael but in some of the guests who return year after year (you know who you are!! ). Personally I would rather not share this Shangri-La with you but that would be unfair to Chris and Angela ! lol
If you want busy , loud and lively this isn't for you but if you like peaceful , friendly and a relaxed atmosphere it should tick the boxes. Having said that the excellent barbecue and greek dancing night every Saturday was great fun and you could either sit back and watch or get stuck right in.
This island and Skala have everything to offer we could wish for we will definitely return, thanks Chris , Angela and Michael for making it so special. Richard and Laura

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Skala. The Aeolos Beach is brilliant, very friendly and welcoming. Angela and Chris are so professional and friendly that you instantly feel at ease (it is not just Angela and Chris though but the whole team). We stayed in an apartment (304) and had wonderful sea views. We reckon we had the best room in the place; spacious, comfortable, with a huge balcony. The pool is just the right size and a really clean. There are enough sunbeds to go round. When we were there, thankfully, there is no towel s on the beds at silly o’clock in the morning although the place is small and personal enough for that not to occur. Top tip try the food, Chris cooks fantastic meals, our 8 year old would not normally consider eating a burger, but demolished one that Chris prepared! The short stroll (10 mins) along the beach front takes you to Skala, which is unspoilt and has a vast array of restaurants. The Aeolos Beach attracts many return customers and we could see why. Quite, civilised, friendly and comfortable. We shall be return customers too!

Just returned home from a week at Aeolos beach hotel and really have got the holiday blues!

The owners and staff made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped through the door Angela checked us in quickly and efficiently and Chris carried our bags to the room. The rooms them selves were basic but very clean and had everything needed to make our stay comfortable.

The view from the pool area was beautiful looking over the beach and out to sea, the pool and sun lounger area was spotless with plenty of loungers for everyone to relax on.

The bar service and bar snacks were very good lots of variety to choose from and nothing was too much hassle if you wanted to add or change you meal. Breakfast was good, a nice variety to choose from and nice little changes every day. Best bit of advice I can give is make use of the 'HAPPY HOUR' 6pm-8pm very good value and the ice-cream cocktails are fantastic.

Angela, Chris, Michael and all the staff are extremely friendly and they really did add the finishing touch to our holiday, they made us feel welcome from the very first moment until the minute we stepped on the bus for our airport transfer, they were all very approachable and were always more than happy to answer your queries. They took time to get to know us and were very friendly and had a little bit of banter too.

Over all I can honestly say me and my partner will be coming back. Thank you Angela and Chris and hope to see you again some time.

stayed at Aeolos Beach for one week in May. this was our first visit and won't be our last.
the Hotel was in a lovely quiet spot which we like with a 15 min walk into Skala all flat apart from hill outside Hotel which isn't too bad. rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean. so nice to have kettle and fridge, usually struggle trying to fit my own kettle in! As I do love a coffee on my balcony.
Angela and Chris were great owners , so helpful but treated everyone the same -first timers were given same attention as people who have been returning for many years. Barman Michael was also first class. The whole atmosphere was so relaxing-plenty of us beds drinks, snacks available all the time and low key entertainment on a couple of nights.
This is what we like in a holiday so it was perfect for us. Other guests were obviously similar to us as there was a lovely friendly feel in the hotel and around pool.
all in all a lovely holiday which we thoroughly enjoyed.
thanks again and thank you Angela for giving me the type of room I had asked for if possible, Not all owners take notice of requests.
hope to see you again soon Mgt and Russell

Room Tip: we had room on pool level which was good and had nice views but everyone seemed happy with whatever...

This is my fourth visit to this Hotel/Apartment complex .

I cannot fault the owners " Angela & Chris " who work so hard to make Thomson's English holiday makers so welcome .

Accommodation though basic is spotlessly clean , pool wonderful & such panoramic views .

The hill up to the accommodation is steep , therefore children who are wobbly on their feet perhaps should be on reins to prevent them from falling over .

Skala doesn't change , excellent beach , good pre-dinner watering holes ( Marabou ) at the rear of the kiosk recommended and a choice of eating places - my favourite being MiaBela with the good natured waiter's - people who have visited before will know them as they have'nt changed in 4 years !

Car Hire -- Greekstones and don't miss out on Vangelis Boat trips , superb & unlike Thomson boat trips .. if it is rough seas he doesn't venture out .

Room Tip: Larger rooms are Self Catering around the Pool - so are very suitable for families . Smaller B.&...

Thanks to Angela and Chris, the hands-on owners, for a very relaxing, friendly holiday. They are always there but never intrusive, the luggage carried to and from the room, the kettle provided to make a tea or coffee to enjoy before breakfast, the cleanliness everywhere, the profusion of loungers round the pool, the view of the sea from the pool, the pool bar snacks menu, there is no area for complaint. Michael,the bar man is superb and a real feature. The walk to Skala is along the sea front, about 10-15 minutes. Going back, the last 100yards is uphill but not a problem for average fit people. A taxi is only 5 euros anyway! We will return any time.

Room Tip: All seem equally good
