We have just returned from a lovely stay at the Magic Hotel in Agia Pareskvi. The Magic Hotel is lovely and has some very thoughtful touches for a 4 star hotel. The hotel is located at bus stop 16, about 15 mins from Skiathos Town and 15 mins from Koukainaires. Agia Paraskevi beach is just a 2 minute walk from the hotel. It is a lovely beach with a mix of sun beds and umbrellas as well as free beach if you don't want to pay for the sun beds (8 euros for two sun beds, umbrella and a free drink). There is a bar/restaurant on the beach which is nice if a little pricey for Greek prices.
Near the hotel (less than 2 mins walk) there is a supermarket and about 4 restaurants all of which are lovely. Platanias is part of the Magic Hotel 'group' and serves Greek and international food. Boubanikas is a pizza restaurant with lovely pizzas from a wood fired oven. Meso Strata is a beautiful white washed restaurant on the main road serving traditional Greek food. Kythina is another lovely restaurant run by Christos again serving some lovely Greek cuisine.
The hotel rooms are well proportioned and look like they have been recently decorated. The views from the balcony are just to die for with beautiful vistas of the sea and mountains. The rooms come with bathrobes and slippers which I thought was a lovely touch. There isn't any tea or coffee making facilities in the room but this didn't cause us a problem.
The staff in the hotel could not be more accommodating and were all so friendly. They would do anything for you and go out of their way to make sure they made your stay enjoyable.
Breakfast is plentiful with both a continental offering and cooked breakfast. Fresh fruit from the hotels gardens is provided and changes depending on what's in season. There is a lovely terrace where you can enjoy your breakfast overlooking the sea.
All in all a truly lovely hotel with some very dedicated staff. Well done Magic Hotel. Highly recommended.
