“GREAT LOCATION NEAR TO THE BEACH”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

The Plaza hotel is the best one at Kanapista if you want to be near the beach. The beach is about a three minute walk away. It is the furthest hotel out of the three hotels at Kanapista from the bus stop but the reception can call you a taxi and should arrive within about ten minutes. It usually costs about thirteen euros by taxi to Skiathos Town so if there are three or four of you in a taxi it works out not too expensive. The taxi boat from Kanapista is three euros each to Skiathos town and takes about thirty minutes to get there.

The Plaza hotel is looking a little bit tired in places but the staff and the hotel position near the beach make up for that.

The only thing I was not happy about at this hotel was the wi-fi internet. It cost five euros for one and a half hours of use but the system would not work in the room so I had to go down to the reception to try to get a signal. I spent lots of time trying to log on or log off and that actually uses up your time while trying to do this. I did see other people at the reception with the same problem. It would not be so bad to have a bad connection on the internet if you did not have to pay for it but I spent about twenty five euros all week and it was annoying not getting a signal.

The room was cleaned every day with clean towels left in the bathroom. Free air conditioning in the room.

Despite the poor wi-fi signal which is not that important we had a great holiday at this hotel.

The hotel is 3 minutes walk from Kanapitsa beach and the beach taverna. Stunning location on a very quiet road about 15 minutes drive from the airport along a beautiful stretch of the coast.

The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable with good bathrooms. The maid service is efficient. The mattresses need updating but that is my only criticism of the room.

The hotel has its own restaurant but we ate at the taverna every night on the beach as eating by the sea was irresistible.

The hotel has a good pool about 20m as well as a linked shallow pool for children.

Breakfast was pretty good-a buffet with a wide selection. Good bread, yoghurt and some days spanakopita or tyropitta were the highlights.

I would certainly go back-a welcoming relaxed hotel in an unbeatable quiet location.

Room Tip: Choose a sea view- spectacular views

Despite slightly unsettled weather, we enjoyed a really lovely week here. All of the staff are so friendly, helpful and polite. Wonderful evening meals in the hotel taverna - excellent value. Short walk to the nearest beach. I agree with a previous review that the mattresses are maybe in need of replacement, you could feel the "springs" at times. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you to all the lovely staff :)

We have just returned from a weeks holiday at the plaza hotel and loved everything about it. The hotel is comfortable, and very clean, the restaurant , pool and reception areas were all spotlessly clean and constantly tidied. The staff are extremely helpful, in reception and Maria and Panos in the restaurant . We went with our daughter, son in law and 3 year all grandson, and everyone was very helpful when he was ill...even cooking him special rice to settle his stomach. The views are spectacular and we loved the walk round the peninsular, about 3 and half miles. We will definitely be returning...can't wait.

My wife and I have just returned from a week at the Plaza and if you want a truly quiet holiday then this is the place.(bear in mind May/June are pretty quiet..I'm told July/August is very busy) If you want or need entertainment then its not for you.On arrival we recieved a very warm welcome from the lovely lady on reception (Dimitra) and that really sets the tone for the whole stay,all the staff without exception were so friendly,helpful,happy and really could not do enough for us.Special thanks to Irina who spent a long time helping with wi fi connection ! Anyway the location is perfect with great views of the beach especially from the breakfast roof terrace which is a delightful way to start the day ! Good choice of fruit juice,cereal,toast,cheese,ham,yoghurt etc and also hot dishes like fried eggs (always runny) omelette,sausages,mushrooms,beans etc. Great pool area with plenty of beds and all areas kepy very clean.Two minute stroll to the beach with its own Taverna which having tried others has to be the best food around.There is a water taxi form the beach to Skiathos town which takes 15 to 20 minutes and is only 3 euros each one way,we spent a day in the Old town which was great but hotter ! there is a good choice of tavernas,bars and shops of all descriptions. So to conclude, we have been to many Greek islands but so far this is easily the best and we will definately be going back.

Room Tip: We did not pay extra for a sea view room as all we wanted it for was to sleep and shower so whats t...

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.
