We are two couples who are just back from a superb two week stay at the Melidron Hotel. In no small part this was due to our hosts Soula and George and the other staff who made us so welcome from the moment that we arrived. Nothing was any bother.
The hotel has great views of the sea and is ideally situated for the beach and the nearby bars and restaurants. Skala village itself is only a short 5-10 minute stroll along the beach road where there is plenty of choice of lovely places to eat and drink.
The rooms in which we stayed at the hotel were spacious and are cleaned daily. Bed linen and towels are changed regularly. There was nothing better than waking in the morning opening the shutter doors and sitting having a coffee on the balcony overlooking the sea. The temperatures during the time we were there were extremely hot each day and the air conditioning was most welcome.
The pool area with views of the sea and beach was great with padded sunbeds, comfortable sofas with cushions and plenty of tables and chairs in the garden area where you can enjoy an ice cold beer from the pool bar. (Served in a frosted glass from the fridge - just ask for a large frosty)..
The Metaxa Bar on the beach and the Avra Bar on the sea front, to name two, are excellent places for both food and drink, just relaxing and watching life go by.
If you enjoy your holidays in hotels that are small and friendly and where the staff are committed to giving you a cracking holiday this is the place for you. Soula and George are superb hosts and provide a personal touch.
I cannot recommend this hotel and resort more highly than to say - we will be going back as we loved it and do not think that we have ever been more relaxed from day one of a holiday as we were here.
