“greece revisited.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Just returned from Skiathos on the major island of Sporades. a truly inspiring place ..Built in kinder times the Plaza is doing a good job in these hard financial times It is an excellent 3 star hotel with some of the most kind and helpful staff you will find any where. the building is a genuine 3 star but not much else is It is more like 5 star..
The Restraunt staff ,all most attentive and keen to please , and the quality of the new chef Miki is exceptional and capable of surprising you with the delight with which he prepares his food as a work of art ..You need have no fears about staying jn this Jem of the Sporades. The overall site is rather a chalange to those that are not 100 % fit It must be taken with care it is however doable Caution in the more damp times.It is said that where swallows nest is the sign of a good place there loads of them there.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front are the ones to try for remember the sun goes down behind the hill to the...

Just returned from Skiathos four days ago and I still cannot believe what a wonderful island this is. The Plaza Hotel based in Kanapista is an excellent place to stay if your looking for tranquility and great views of the island. It has been said the Plaza is not be a 5 star hotel and this is true. But you do get 5 star service. The staff are excellent and very helpful. My room which was very comfortable and I was given a sea view which came as a nice surprise. The room was also cleaned without fail everyday. Breakfast on the Hotel roof is marvelous, as your treated to a glorious view of the bay and the choice of food I found to be very good. The Hotel restaurant provides a good selection of Greek food for your evening wining and dining. The chef at the hotel takes great pride in his cooking and he certainly delivers. Maria and the staff all work hard to see that your well catered for. I noticed that elderly holidaymakers who found it difficult to get around were especially taken care of. Now I must give a mention to the amazing Panos, Possibly the finest cocktail maker and bartender in Europe. This man has won awards for his amazing drinks. His hospitality and good manners go well together, make sure you try one of his drinks. His Metaxa mixture is especially good. Also the nearby taverna set on the beach is also a great meeting place to eat and drink and be seen at. I enjoyed the boat ride to Skiathos town and found getting around very easy. My thanks to my new found friend Zoe, who knows the island well and gave me a little tour-thank you Zoe. All in all a lovely holiday and spent at a delightful hotel which I will gladly return to soon.

What a wonderfull place! Just spend a week in Plaza and the positive reviews on Tripadvisor were more than accurate.
First, praise to the ladies at the reception (hi girls!), professional, friendly, informative and always a warm welcome with a spontanious smile.
On arrival we told them one of us had trouble walking up and down the stairs. One day later we got an upgrade to a seaview room, to be reached by lift (the ground floor room was to be reached by steps). From there and the rooftop (breakfast) was better than expected. The clean room was spacious enough, the bathroom aswell, with a walk-in shower. The bed was too hard though. A nice surprise were the swallow-nests above the balconies, wich they luckely didn't remove. The twittering and curious looks of these lovely birds make you feel even closer to nature.
The pool-area had soft beds and the water was cleaned every day. Breakfast was sufficient, would have liked more choice in cheese/ham, for instance some local products and less food from cans. But considering the price we payd good value. The service was great and good coffee!
The beach was a little paradise, we had tried some other beaches, but on account of the wind, we always ended up at Kanapitsa, the water was more calm and less wind. The beach in front of the taverna was cleaned every day (!), but the beds desperately needed to be renewed, they were impossible to lay down on. The watertaxi started from 18th of may and we enjoyed it a lot. A 20 minutes boattrip to town for a coffee and back to Kanapitsa bay made our day. It goes every hour, except 12.00-15.00 hr. The taverna had a limited menu because they just opened and the dining-part was open from the 17th. Polite service and lovely food for every wallet.
We rented a car because walking up and down the hill to the busstop was not an option for us. Just 105,- for 5 days and it saves you a lot of hastle.
A charming place and we will be back for sure! See you next year...

Stayed here and boy did we regret it. The whole place is very tired and dated, we had paid for the upgraded room which was a big mistake. The walls were stained the plaster was in poor condition the furniture was very worn and whole Hotel could do with a major makeover. We have been the Greek islands for the last 20 years and to Skiathos 3 times and this is by far the worst hotel we have stayed in. The location is ok if you like seclusion with a bit of a trek up to the main road. The main form of transport to get to the town is the boat taxi , which is ok and whilst being very friendly you are limited to the timetable. If you want walk up to the main road for the bus you are in for a long wait because more often than not the bus is full because of its closeness to the town so you have to try and flag a taxi down. We previously have stayed in the Astoria Hotel in Troulos which Thomson Holidays give the same rating, the Astoria Hotel is superb in comparison.

Stayed in a room in the first floor. Yes a bit dated but spotlessly clean. Breakfast room has fantastic views across the bay. Breakfast good fruit yoghurt cheese honey and hot choices too. Pool is nice and clean. Ate at taverna on beach that's very good too. Wouldn't like to be here in high season but out of season very peaceful. Can quite understand why so many people return here.

Stayed in Skiathos for the first time, Plaza was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. Our room was on the third floor at the front of the hotel with breathtaking views. The rooms are cleaned everyday, fresh towels and the hotel staff very friendly and helpful. The beach taverna is approx 100 metres walk, serves fabulous food and situated in an idyllic setting. The buffet breakfast offered a variety of choice and it was very nice, some people complained because it did not offer a full English ( you are in Greece remember). Wi Fi is 5€ for 90 minutes. A/c in room. Safe in reception at a cost. It is suitable for families with young children if you want a pool/beach holiday, not much else to entertain the little ones. The one point to mention is the 600m walk to the bus stop 12. Alternatively you can pick up the taxi boat from the beach to Skiathos town for 3€ each way, children travel free. Overall we would recommend staying here based on our experience and would definitely go back. We had a memorable happy holiday here.

Room Tip: Email the hotel before you go and request a room at the front.

Stayed here towards the end of August into September for a week.
Hotel mini bus picks you up from the airport which is very handy.Hotel reception staff were pleasant and we got straight to our room..There is a lift if needed.We paid extra for balcony,a/c and sea view , and it was worth it.There is a block of rooms towards the back of the hotel but apparently they are basic so pay the extra few pounds to be at the front.
Rooms were nicely done and uncluttered. Good bathrooms and of course the balcony and view.
Fridge , tv as standard.
Breakfast is on the 4 th floor with a lovely view of the sea.Its a self serve situation but that works fine and you can make repeat visits to obtain more if you need it.
The rooms are serviced every day with towels changed daily and beds changed every couple of days
There is a restaurant on site which we tried and it was very good and at a good price.The staff are an asset to the hotel and people revisit this hotel many times.

If you walk out of the hotel and cross the quiet road in front of you it takes less than a few minutes to reach the sea.Plenty of sun loungers to rent and a lovely taverna for drinks and meals served all day. We had a couple of evening meals and they were good.The water laps right up just below your feet, making it very special
Water sports in the bay too.

The water taxi goes from here and it costs 3€ one way into Skiathos town. It takes about 20 mins but is a lovely way to get to the shops etc

it is about a 15 min walk to the main road to get the bus that goes along the coast.it is very cheap and a great way to get to other beaches.The stops are numbered 1-26 so its a good service to use even at night.There is a supermarket and another restaurant along the road as well.

I think to summarise .Although the hotel is only 3 stars it is in an ideal location with easy access to town via bus or water taxi.
Great beaches nearby.Everyone is very friendly on the island and of course the hotel staff.
Well worth a visit and I'm sure we will return.

Room Tip: Pay for a sea view it only costs a few extra ££.
