There are great things about this place and other things that some people might not like. However, if you are able to get a cheap price like we did for a week away it was great value and very enjoyable. Firstly we found out that the 2 bed apartment we had booked was no longer available, but luckily they offered us the 7 bed villa instead at no extra charge! So the villa was more 4 star quality (lots of room, fully equipped kitchen, good sized bathroom, dining room, side veranda and steps as well as front patio area surrounded by beautiful fruit trees and views of the nearby farm and even the sea). Cleaners in every day making beds, emptying bins, washing up etc which was nice. Didn't need air con in late May as air still fresh but remember if you do need it is is 45 euros a week. And if you are in the main building then you might want to request a first floor apartment as the balconies offer more of a view (of farmland/hills/football pitch).
Pool is very clean and lovely to use. During the day very relaxing and all the beds have cushions, parasols etc. to use for free. Free WiFi. Nice music quietly playing and lots of bar snacks/lunch etc. available which were of a very good quality and price. The staff (Eva and Kostas) were always eager to help us out with a smile.
Good location too as bus stop 18 just round the corner from the complex to get into Skiathos town. Lots of shops, tavernas right on the door step too though. Short walk to Troulos beach which is very peaceful and pretty with more tavernas/bars.
One slight down side was noise. Not from the road but from the farm animals as others have mentioned in other reviews. The owners can't really do anything about this, and sometimes it was nice as felt like we were in a very rustic location, but donkeys, dogs and cockerels did wake us and our 3 year old daughter up much earlier than we had liked most days. If you are in the main complex you may also find that the karaoke bothers you if you're not down there yourself joining in - it can go on quite late into the night. But if you fancy a good drink and sing then you won't notice! The bar was busy most nights and has a nice atmosphere.
We love Skiathos and will always enjoy our time there. If you're looking for something basic but with friendly, typically Greek hospitality in a good location then this could be a good option, especially if you have one of the villas further up past the main building. If you want something more upmarket or that is very peaceful in the late evenings then you may need to look elsewhere!
