“This is a "NO GO". Poor service - cleanliness was an issue. Not a Value For Money accomodation”
Reviewed July 18, 2010

We stayed at the hotel for 3 days last week. Furniure was old, The wardrobe and the bed that were first green were painted blue. We could tell so because of the ravelling of the furniture. There were cups on the kitchen which were very old and cracked. There was also a toaster which was rusty and of course we could not use it. Hopefully, we had some plastic cups with us. The bathroom was tiny, there was no curtain and the traps were so old and rusty allowing water overflow. The worst of all was that the cleaning service was almost non existent. We had to complain to the responsible in order to have our room cleaned. Even worse was that we found ants on the kitchen cupboard. We realized that the people in charge knew about this problem but took them one day to give us a spray to get rid of the ants. Not to mention fretted towels, sheets and pillows. Also, you could clearly hear the noise from the pumps of the room next door.
It is a pitty as this hotel has a nice view but it is dirty and seems to be left as it was 20 years ago, with no changes or renovation. Even if you do not pay that much you expect a minimum cleaning service.
I would suggest to any potential customer to search for another hotel.

Hotel is a little bit hard to find as there are no signs, so I would suggest to call to get specific directions. Beach is right behind the hotel (85 steps to be exact), so can't complain about location. Rooms are big and with balconies. Overall evaluation is 8,5 out of 10.
Annoying was that shower didn't have curtain.

Anna and Family made us so welcome.The Appartment was clean airey and a fantastic view of the horseshoe shaped beach. We stayed on the beach till 8pm retired for a shower and rustled up a meal on the cooker. The only down side is the lovely Restaurants in the vicinity are pricing themselves out on fish menu's which are caught in the Bay 63 pounds for 2 people at the beach bar on our last day left a salty taste in our mouths Disappointing.

Kolios beach studios are light, airy and spacious. there is plenty of storage and all the basics are supplied for a self catering holiday.
however, what really makes this studios special is their location. ideally situated at the base of a beautiful horseshoe bay, you feel you can almost touch the sea from your balcony.
it is 85 paces from the studios to the beach and then 25 more to the sea. There is one other accommodation complex tucked discretely to one side with trees and open spaces in other direction giving a feeling of seclusion. on the beach there is a 'sand bar' which offers very good lunch time snacks and 'Kolios beach' taverna with an extensive menu, an ideal setting for a cool evening meal.

if you fancy venturing further there are plenty of lovely beaches to explore-some packed with sun-worshipers and some with no one else to be seen..

A hire car is nice but certainly not essential. the island has a bus service which runs approximately every 20 minutes and goes all the way from the town to the south of the island, and taxi's are always available.
Skiathos town is a short bus or taxi ride from Kolio's beach. this is a busy harbour town with plenty of bars, restaurants, shops, boutiques and clubs. it is also home to some fantastic boats.
I love skiathos and think kolios beach is perfect -without doubt we will retur-hopefully not before too long.
