Theodora, or Demetris? (Skiathos first-timer)

Hi all,

I was about to book The Astoria in Troulos, but it was booked out! So now I'm looking at nearby Kolios, and I have shortlisted two places that are in our budget;

Theodora - tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g776015-d3154…

Demetris - tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g776015-d1151…

Has anyone got experience of either, and can help me choose? I am very suspicious of where Theodora is on the map, on most holiday sites it's right on the main road, but from the sound of the reviews, it's a bit of a walk from there!

Also - how does Kolios beach rate? I'm looking for something sandy, peaceful and not too crowded?

Thanks,

Steph :)

Theodora is about a 350m walk down a very quiet lane from the main road past a couple of other apartments and a supermarket. It is the last set of apartments along the lane and is in a vrey quiet area. The Skiathos Diamond about 150m away has a small taverna and you pass Infinity Blue taverna on the way there. Nice pool bar which is open till late.

No nothing of Demetris I'm afarid

Hope Theodora is wonderful. Going there in July. The beach at Kolios is fab. I,m suprised The Happening hasn,t been on here to answer you Steph. She is smitten with Kolios and the Theodora. ;-))))

Demetris Studios is very slightly closer to the main road than Theodora's and just a two minute walk from the nearest supermarket. I have stayed at Demitris many times and enjoy the quiet surroundings. Demitris does not have a bar but Theodora's does and they also have a fun quiz night. Both have a small pool. The walk from Demitris to the main road and bus stop 15 is about 5 - 7 minutes, depending on your mobility. I'm sure that you will enjoy either.

Theodora - no more to be said. We love it. Back in July for our 3rd visit.

Yes it's basic, but in our experience, after an hour or so it feels like home.

Checking the reviews for Demetris, no air con. Theodora does offer air con at a supplement.

We love it. Maggie is just the most brilliant host & Maria & family are so welcoming.

From what TweedKelso says, Theodora & Demetris are closely situated.

Does anyone know, is Demetris the one with the whistling gnome?

Thank you all for your quick replies!

I think a bar might just swing it for me, if there's not much difference distance-wise.

We'll be going early Sept, I'm hoping it will still be nice and warm... :)

The little gnome sits happily on a gate post & "whistles" as you pass!!

Situated between Infinity & Theodora.

Disappeared for a while last year but soon returned. Think he went on holiday to "recharge his batteries!!" :D
