Kassandra Bay Resort & SPA
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Vasilias
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 July 2014

My wife and I have stayed in the Kassandra Bay hotel on five occasions, but found that this summer the holiday was let down by the quality of the food. Breakfast consisted of cold rubbery fried eggs, cold undercooked bacon and dried out scrambled egg. The selection of fruit was very poor, brown mushy bananas, dried out sliced apple and tinned fruit. No melon or other fresh fruits. Most bizarre was the method of serving tea. A cup of tepid water was poured out at the table and a tea bag presented to you!
The problem with the food extended to the bar lunches. Cold and unappetising we gave up after two days. On the positive side the hotel and staff are excellent and providing the catering is addressed it will remain an excellent holiday destination.

Stayed: June 2014, travelled as a couple

We have just come from a family week at this resort, myself, my husband and two children. It is fantastic, the hotel, the beach, the pool, the people, the Island......I could go on but basically we loved it. The hotel was clean and well kept, breakfast was lush - something for everyone. The service was fab but our special thanks go to Niko whose job it is to come and serve you drinks at the beach, his customer service skills are fantastic and you always felt nothing was too much trouble. He always made a fuss of the kids as well as us! The boy deserves a raise - the best waiter in that hotel. We didn't do a great deal around the Island as the resort was so lovely, we took the water ferry over to Skiathos in the evening to eat, although the hotel restaurant was good too but a bit pricer. The water ferry comes right to a jetty on the private beach- it couldn't be easier. A huge highlight of our trip was Stephanos which is at the far end of the beach and does all sorts of water sports. Our whole family loved one thing or another be it kayaking, pedalo, ringos etc. It really is an asset to the resort having him on the beach as you have the children entertained for the day. Stephano himself is great the kids loved him and he always made sure the kids felt comfortable and happy doing whatever they had chosen to do. So if this review sounds like we sat on the beach everyday then you'd be right! We have come home totally relaxed and that is what you want from a holiday even with 3 children! :-)

Room Tip: I think all rooms are beach facing, they are cool and quiet so you can't really go wrong.

We stayed at the KB from 03/06/14 for 2 weeks. The hotel is in a great position being only 10 mins drive/taxi/bus or better still the water taxi to Skiathos town. There are lots of lovely areas to sit with a drink and look out at the views of Skopolos. Our room was spacious airy and clean with big patio windows leading on to a balcony with comfortable chairs and a small table again taking in the great views. The hotel will provide a travel kettle if you ask, I emailed in advance and one was waiting in the room. The only problem with our room was that the staff accommodation was directly behind and on a couple of nights it was a bit noisy.The beach at Vassilias isn't the best on Skiathos, it has quite gritty sand where as some beaches (eg Troulos bus stop 8) have fine sand. The sunbeds are free to hotel residents and beach towels are provided. The hotel provide very nice and reasonable lunches tho tried the buffet one night and wasn't impressed but ok value at 16 euros, there are lots of fantastic places to eat in Skiathos town and the surrounding areas, both cheap and cheerful and some a bit upmarket for a special treat. The breakfast was good but I wish they would provide side plates (only saw them one morning) and I think maybe a table with spare cutlery as the staff are very busy and its annoying having to keep asking for a clean knife,spoon ect when it would be easy if we could help ourselves. There's no shops in Vassilias and only one taverna next to hotel on beach and a little bar next to that (I don't know if this bar is open at night) We used to go late morning for a Mythos beer, lovely relaxing place. Over all the KB is a very good hotel for a relaxing holiday and a great spot to get about, would be more than happy to stay here again.

Just returned from a week spent here, the only thing we can complain about is the lack of shelter from the sun on the main road at bus stop number 8, particularly when you are to be there 10 minutes before coach pick up time for the airport and it is half an hour late. Not the hotels fault, but they could erect some sort of shelter. The hotel is small enough to be compact, but big enough to suit everyone. Breakfasts were excellent, plenty of choice to suit everyone. We prefer to try local tavernas etc so only ate at the hotel once - it was fine, but not earth shattering. Friendly and helpful staff, lovely rooms with comfy beds and air con that did the job in 40 degrees. Well placed for Skiathos town. We will definitely stay here again and thoroughly recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: Sea view in new block, we hade room 420 which was excellent

Just called in for a drink with friends after dining at Olive Land but very impressed and very attentive friendly service from the bar staff near the beach-good prices too !
All the guests seem very relaxed and enjoying themselves.

Came to Skiathos for my friends wedding, stayed at the Kassandra and couldn't really fault it. If we were being picky the beach could be better but as we had a car we visited lots of lovely beaches during the week. I would recommend a 4 by 4 rather than a car to be able to access all the beaches. We stayed on a B&B basis and couldn't fault the breakfast set us up for the day. Staff were superb and the room was spacious and clean. We will def come back to Skiathos and although we rarely visit the same hotel twice I would not hesitate in coming back to the Kassandra .
