I have just returned from a weeks holiday at the Villa Rosa. We were greeted on arrival and showed to our room immediately. The hotel itself is really quiet and peaceful - you could actually hear a pin drop when everyone was sat around the pool. I didn't dare speak! We are in our late 20's/early 30's and were the youngest by far. However, it was nice and relaxing and the place is so pretty with lots of fresh lemon trees and colourful flowers.
Markos the chef was very good and we ate there 3 times out of 7! George the waiter made our holiday - he was so friendly (think he was pleased to see some other young people!) and was telling us all about his upcoming wedding and how Greek weddings are celebrated etc. He loves to talk about England - just ask him about Primark!
The room was clean and comfortable, no air con needed. The one complaint I have is the shower being cold a few times, but we figured out it's due to the solar power - so wait til the sun has been blazing a couple of hours and you will be fine.
Tips: The red light outside your door is activated when you put the key in the slot inside, it's to indicate to the maid that you are in so she won't enter! So if one of you goes out, leave the key in the slot if the other is still inside.
The beach is very close and the bus is so easy to use - 2 euros a ticket. Go to Koukanaris beach and Skiathos town - and do a boat trip. There is an excursions office on the front where we booked a day trip, 15 euros each for all day (compared to the Thomson one at 32 it's a no brainer!).
