Should I stay or should I go

As our first trip to Skiathos, our expectations of a relaxed holiday nearly turned out to be a nightmare. If it wasn't for Dimitri at reception, I would have had no hesitation in leaving the hotel, regardless of having paid for the duration. The woman owner needs to get a reality check and maybe be given a customer service course. She wouldn't let us have the umbrella's up in the scorching heat, she wouldn't let you sit at the downstairs area for breakfast (so they wouldn't have to clean up).It felt like concentration camp. Being of Greek decent, I understood every word she said when she scolded her staff telling them to move the guests away from these areas. We resorted to going to a beautiful beach, Agia Eleni, where thankfully, we sat and sipped frappe's and listened to soothing music. I have to admit, it's the best island I have ever been to and will be returning to Skiathos. These memories that I took back home with me, has made me forget the bad times at Golden Beach.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Comfortable room, air conditioning a great extra. Maid service excellent. All staff very friendly and efficient. Pool area clean and very nice. Hotel only 10 minutes walk from Koukounaries beach (very busy) or Agia Eleni (quieter). On bus route into Skiathos, but road not busy. Food very average. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Top Local Tips for Skiathos

Seriously Overcrowded There is a bus that runs every 20mins from one end of the island to the other. Be aware they seriously overcrowd this bus. It was so bad that when the bus door was closing at the front of the bus my leg nearly got caught in it. If you can get alternative transport into town then do. Coming back from Skiathos Town is no problem there is plenty of room but going to Skiathos Town on the bus is not a good idea.

Hire a boat Hire a boat from some of the beaches its the best way to see Skiathos!

round island secluded beach boat trip also hiking go on it.its fab.you will have a great time no matter who or wot age you are. as for hiking its bril if your up for it.gorgeous.its a paradise island.some of the best bits seen by foot..
