We booked this trip on the basis of previous reviews and it's fair to say that they were pretty accurate. The hosts Voula & Andreas were very accommodating and their 2 dogs Pluto & Lilli were quite delightful. (Not so sure about the cats - especially those from the neighbouring hotel which came scrounging around the breakfast table every morning!).
The rooms were basic but kept clean and the views from the bedroom were quite stunning. Skala itself was very quiet but that was to be expected at this time of the year when the resort was close to the end of the season. As others have commented before, the walk down to the town was easy and as long as you remembered not to look up at the steep climb back the trip back could be made within 15 minutes.
The weather was reasonable for the beginning of October although the thunderstorms at the end of the holiday resulted in us being delayed back to the UK by over 30 hours. We were put up at the Marebleu Hotel overnight on the edge of Skala. Although this was a 5* hotel we much preferred the simplicity of The Zephyros.
We certainly plan to come to this hotel again and would like to explore the north of the island. We will probably return in May when the spring flowers will be at their best.
