“Lovely hotel, but......”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Just returned from 11 days here at this lovely place. The hotel and rooms are beautiful, the pool area and beach are lovely, but be aware if you have mobility problems, there is NO LIFT!
We requested a top 4th floor deluxe sea-view room before we realised there was no lift. We were allocated a room of our choice eventually by agreeing to use a ramp at the side of the hotel. This can also be used for some 3rd floor rooms. The top 2 floors seem to have recently been refurbished and are lovely. The bed was a bit hard and gave me back ache, but when they push the twin beds together they put a nice soft mattress across the 2 beds and it was much more comfortable. The guest rep, Georgia is fantastic, any problem she will sort it!
There are no tea making facilities or face flannels provided as is normal in a 5 star hotel bedroom. The food isn't 5 star either, so in our opinion, this is a good 4 star hotel.
We were B and B, so we could go out to tavernas at night. We had the hotel buffet the first night because we didn't feel like going out after the journey. We didn't do it again as the cost was 74euros (with wine) Meals in tavernas are half that price and much better! The best taverna we went to was a taxi ride (8euros) to Kanapitsa, quite a smart place beside the beach, but you need to book (2427021191). Other recommended restaurants; Platanias and Jimmys

Room Tip: De luxe sea-view rooms avoiding steps 460-469, also some 3rd floor rooms using the ramp

This was our 3nd time stay at the Princess and overall had a good hoilday, We stay in Delux Double Sea view room (468) which was clean and spacious, but very close to the road some rooms have new doors which I am surewould help but our room still had a old door ,this was not a problem for us but I did hear no people asking to be moved. Overall staff are very friendly and hard working. After a few days the hotel brought in a new Dress Code(smart casual) this was pointed out to my husband who was in a shirt knee length shorts and leather sandles We were then told that he should wear long trousers and full shoes . I explained that this was not stated on thier website ( they added this the following day) or on any of the travel company websites . I discussed this the following day with our Rep who had to agree with me that this was new to them and that they had no prior notice of this . My husband had no long trousers or full shoes with him I would agree with the hotel that people should be smart when in the the restaurant but Smart Casual is open to interpretation ! The food in the restaurant was excellent but there seemed to be some table resverving going on, a number of tmes we were told that there was no free tables when there clearly was maybe this was due to the dress code. In the past we have found the hotel to be laid back and chilled but the problem we had has left us feeling that this will be our last stay here

Returned from a stay at the Princess the hotel which has some good points such as location and most of the staff try hard to please that said this hotel is 3 star at best.We upgraded to sea view room but found that it was only a few feet away from the road and after a few nights the lack of sleep took its toll. This coupled with the fact that they brought in dress code which men should wear long trousers and no opened shoes when we pointed out that this was not stated in their or any other website the the response was poor,this left my partner very upset .There is no A/C in the dinning room and was very warm in june so it it is only going to become much hotter .

Room Tip: one away from the road

Dear Elizabeth F,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on TripAdvisor.

We would like to know why categorize the hotel as a 3star and we are sorry you felt that way. We want to make sure that every guest enjoys their stay and every comment makes us better.

The fact that we have a dressing code at the restaurant is a 5 star hotel standard and its clearly stated at our website. AC is available in Basilico Buffet Restaurant and is 100% functional.

Your room that you stayed at is a Deluxe Double Room with sound proof doors that cover any noise.

Because your opinion matters, could you send us an additional e-mail or message with further explanations why the hotel, in your opinion, does not cover the 5 star requirements because the dress code is a 5 star requirement.

I hope you return as our guest soon in one of our properties

Best Regards,

Konstantinos Santikos

We were rescued by Skiathos Princess and Thomson holidays from a messed up booking by Kivo Hotel (see reviews!) What a lucky break! Skiathos Princess has now moved up to first position in our best hotels ever.
Richly deserved 5 star rating. Clean, spacious room with sea view. Excellent restaurant (we were half board) with wide choice of breakfasts including freshly made omelettes and also fresh crepes. The pastry chef makes all of the bread and croissants for the hotel every day.
Take lunch at Pr Ammos beach restaurant, superbly run by Marios, good range of food cooked to order, including one of the best risotto's I have had anywhere. Nancy the supervisor is a real joy.
Evening meals had as standard fresh soup, roast, grill and deserts every day. The restaurant staff were the best we have ever found. Special mentions to (but not limited to...) Rafaela, Rania - the eagle, Dwra, Simos, Marinos (waiting staff) Kristina, young Harry Potter (omelettes), Angeliki (soup), Theophilus (manager). Not forgetting the very lovely Georgia (guest relations). Reception staff were all friendly and efficient. Housekeeping staff - superb.
Plenty of good quality beds at the beach and round the pool. Fantastic beach.
It doesn't get any better than this. Thank you for a wonderful holiday. Note for Kivo, this is how a hotel should be run.

Room Tip: Sea view is a real plus.

We have been going to this hotel for many years and have just returned from another lovely trip! The location of this hotel is excellent, set in lovely gardens adjoining a beautiful beach. The hotel itself is very comfortable with well appointed public rooms and the atmosphere is very relaxed. This time we upgraded to a lovely seaview room in the Premier building which is nearest the beach and I can thoroughly recommend this - well worth the extra expense! Food was very good again, but one of the highlights was the lovely friendly staff who really go out of their way to be helpful and welcoming! Already looking forward to returning next year!

Room Tip: Book a seaview room - well worth it for the lovely views!

Hotel itself is lovely. Great location on the beach. Sea very clean. Staff at hotel extremely helpful.
Food in the evening is excellent. Breakfast was average.
We were allocated room 313. Very dark at all times and terrace enclosed with overgrown greenery. Hotel moved us to a beautiful room after 2 days.
Rep was very pleasant once we saw her - she forgot to come to our 1st meeting.!!! She was unable to help us with our room but the hotel's customer relations lady (Georgia) was extremely helpful.
