I have never reviewed a hotel on here before but having read the most recent reviews I am compelled to add my own.

This place is perfect. A little slice of paradise.

The hotel is lovely, clean and modern. The staff (ALL of them) are nothing but pleasant, helfpul and friendly. George and Effie clearly take complete pride in their hotel and care about your stay. The complimentary welcome drink upon your arrival gives you a taste of the sort of place that you will be spending your holiday. George and Effie go out of their way to make sure that you are enjoying your hard earned holiday and it is lovely to see them socialising with their own friends and family as well as guests during the day and night. These two never rest. And if you are lucky enough to catch Effie dancing at the Greek night then you are in for a treat!

The rooms are extremely comfortable, modern and well equipped. I sleep like a baby at this place. It is so peaceful and comfortable!

Hercules, Aliki, Nectorious and Claire are brilliant. They take the time and trouble to treat every guest as if they were their only customer. They too care about making your stay as special as possible. The food that they serve at lunch time is first class. And the range and amount of food on offer on the BBQ/Greek Night is out of this world. A word of advice - don't have lunch that day as you will not need it!

Having read the previous reviews I have to say that Claire is very friendly and is lovely to pass the time of day with. She has been living out there for many years now and has good local knowledge and has picked up the language brilliantly. She helped us by advising about the bus timetables etc. The things said about her in the previous comments are absolutely ridiculous and completely dreamt up by someone. They are also extremely spiteful and personal. If she has come across as friendly to someone or their partner then that is what she is - friendly. Anything else that it is imagined to be I simply feel is based upon jealousy or ill founded suspiscion!

All in all this place is brilliant. We would loved to have gone this year again but could not because of me being made redundant. Our family are out their at the moment and we are so jealous.

Keep up the good work guys. You cannot improve on perfection. Hopefully we will see you next year (fingers crossed).

We have been all over Greece in the past 12 years and never felt so welcome and at home as at the Anassa. Hercules, Claire and Nick work around the clock, never relenting to please and ensure everyone is fully happy with the super friendly service they provide. They have become very special friends to us and we cant wait to return to them. The food is amazing quality and value, with massive portion size and Hercules will get anything you chose to eat in for your meal.Nothing is too much trouble and laughing is plentyful. Everything is spotless and evening entertainment is great. I have never seen anyone work so hard as these 3, without a single grumble.
The hotel is in beautiful condition, immaculately cleaned every day. Cant thing of any negatives about the place. The hotel owners are wonderful people, caring people too and always provide a warm welcome and farewell, as well as cheerful conversation throughout your stay. Cant wait to come back, miss u all xx Dave and Deb, Sheffield xx

Room Tip: All rooms are good standard. Some in back block in garden seem in quieter spot but still only 100m from sea and some in front block which may be a little noisier at night until bar closes.

I would like to say how much My family and I appreciate the treatment received throughout our stay. We were made to feel so welcome. The Hotel is amazing with a pool to die for. Skala is an ideal place for families with all of the amenities close to hand. Boat Trips to Ithaca is a must and there are also many inland sites to explore. (Old Skala) is a decent walk away but the views are worth it. Please book a stay you will not be disappointed. Say hello to Claire she does an amazing job and makes the place even more special.

I don't know how anyone can can say this hotel isn't 100% perfect !!
As for reviews by ms peacock and ms scarlet ... Pure jealousy if you ask me !!
Claire and the rest of the staff are completely professional and more than helpful to everyone !!
Obviously these people were in the same party if 6 who took a partial disliking to Claire who is a beautiful lady.. She certainly doesn't take interest in anybodies husbands/partners.. She is down to earth and would chat to anyone !!
These people obviously have major insecurity issues !!
If anyone is thinking about visiting the anassa please rest assure your holiday would be one of the best and ignore these comments !!
Just look at every other review !!
This hotel is no 1 in scala for one reason only and that is because it's the best and that's down to the great staff who look after everybody.
Go ahead and book this hotel YOU WON'T BE DISSAPOINTED :-D xx
