It's a bit of a walk from the main road and its a little hilly, but its worth it. With the amount of food I ate in Skiathos, I needed a good workout! We stayed in Room 4, on the ground floor. From our patio area, you can see a glimpse of the sea, with a well kept garden. The pool area is gorgeous. Very serene. Unfortunately the pool is only open from 10-7, so no late night dips to cool off.
The room itself was clean, but unfortunately no air con. We paid €3 a day for a fan. Some rooms do have air con which is priced at €6 a day. This seems to be the norm over there. If you need a double bed, make sure to request it when booking, as I dont think many rooms have them. The room was cleaned twice in our one weeks stay. We always had hot water, but the shower itself was a little too close to the wall. Being 5foot tall, I found it difficult to take the shower head down.
My only gripe was that although the room was cleaned twice a week, they didnt supply us with any toilet paper. To save us buying some, we made sure to stock up from various different restaurants...

What can I say our absolute solace. Beautiful gardens and swimming pool, rooms that are kept immaculately clean by the mother & her two daughters.

10 mins walk to the beach and an excellent bus service every 20 mins from one end of the island to the other.

If you want a quiet chill out holiday this is the place to stay, but very close to louder watering holes & restaurants.

Room Tip: Rooms 6 to 10 are on a higher level with sea views

This was my third time in the island and first at Demetris. Spent one week here and can't complain about anything, the studios are really good and clean.

The only thing that spoils a bit is that it is a bit too quiet, seriously, you can't event talk while you are at the pool, no one ever says a thing around you! Also, there is no one to welcome you apart from the Olympic reps that you meet at the airport, they drop you off, show your room and that's it, you are pretty much done. When you "check-out", just leave your keys at the door...

The studios are well located, near the beach and supermarkets/tavernas, there is also Xanthi studios and Theodora studios nearby, they both have pool bars that you can use... It helped a lot as the pool at Demetris was dead quiet!!

Would stay again if needed, but next time somewhere definetely with a pool bar!

Exceptionally clean studios with everything u need and lovely views especially from studio block.
I would really recommend these studios for peace and quiet. Nothing bad to say about them.
Good location away from main road 5 mins (if that) walk from bus stop no 15 - where u can go to skiathos town or other beaches. We went to skiathos town most nights to eat as such choice and in old part very picturesque. If there are 4 of u at bus stop "haggle" with taxi driver and u can go for 8 euros for all 4 cents more than bus price. Good bits of hol - dog shelter and boat trip (only paid 15 euros for a full day - saw dolphins. Dont b ripped off with other tours at 45 euros. Nice walks too. Lovely green greek island. Theodora studios near by - nice pool and bar.

I can't really embellish the rose, as it were. The previous reviewers have this place reviewed as it is and I just wanted to say how much enjoyed it.
It is quiet, up a lane but nearby there is a good mini-market, the bus stop and some good eating places.
Gardens are gorgeous and the pool is clean, not over chlorinated.
Studio was perfect. Bonus was the kettle, rare in greek s/c. Comfortable bed, good lights for bedtime reading and a shower curtain. If you need any extra pillows or blankets (as the beds are hard for some), they will be happy to oblige.
There are various "countryside noises" (doggies barking and cockerels) but I was so relaxed on this holiday, I did'nt find it an issue.
The people that were here this time were 2 repeat guests and 2 newcomers, including myself. We went out every night with them, as they were such nice people who enjoy the simplicities of a greek holiday. Hello to Tony, Valerie & Nigel and Shiela-had a great time, thanks.
I would certainly consider coming back to these studios before I have been to Kefalonia, Santorini and Lesbos.....!!!!!
Good place to eat was the Pegasus (Ag Paraskevi). I went 2 nights in a row!!!
Weather was good apart from the last day.

Room Tip: Get in touch with Olympic prior to travel for requests.

Our friend was getting married in Skiathos and as we had already had one major holiday this year decided to go for the more reasonably priced accommodation of demetris...

Flight into skiathos is a little bumpy and thrilling to fly so low over the beaches. The island is tiny so only took 10/15 minutes to get to hotel but then had to walk up to the hotel from the road. Not too bad a walk just remember a torch for the nights it gets quite dark!!!

Hotel is basic but clean. There was not a double bed only twin beds but they were comfy. Room got very hot so had to hire a fan (you can get air con for 6euros a night). Swimming pool is strange to begin with (pebbled dash) but was mostly empty. The hotel feels very secluded lots of farm animals around, cats and insects making noise. Good shop just down the road to get all your food needs.

Huge amount of beaches around the island - 60 in total. Hire a quad bike/jeep and grab a map and go to as many as you can. Diamond beach is amazing if you dont mind the climb down.

Many restaurants to eat in - Maris Pizza place in skiathos was fantastic - you have to queue to get in which is always a good sign. The view restaurant in Kolios is very romantic. For good value find the hidden restaurants off the beaten track.

When you leave check in your luggage and the go back out of the airport to the bar across the road. We did this and was able to grab a last meal and drink in the sun. Others did not and had to sit on the floor of a very small departure lounge for a couple of hours.

Will definately be going back to Skiathos we have more beaches to see. If this is out only holiday for the year we would probably book somewhere else but if its the second holiday then demetris would be it.

Room Tip: Try to get one of the rooms at the top with only a balcony and not a garden. Amazing view of the sea...

Just come back from our best Greek holiday ever. Rooms are basic but spotless and location is fantastic! Peaceful and secluded , but close enough to the buses for easy travel around the island. Local walking is great and as easy or as difficult as you want to make it. End of season when we were there so the shops are running their stock down but no trouble getting the basics and Skiathos town is 5 - 10 minutes on the bus for a bit more shopping. Beautiful island and the people were warm and friendly. If you want 5 star comfort and to be waited on hand and foot the forget it , but if you want a relaxing self-catering holiday in a beautiful location you'd be hard pressed to beat this.
