Captain and Dounia gave us a warm welcome on arrival and they and their small staff do work tirelessly to keep their guests happy. The sea view from the pool is lovely - and the pool itself is very nice - perhaps not enough beds around the pool for the number of guests.
Room no 17 had a sea/ with partial road view. There was no privacy on the balcony from people drinking at the bar/ restaurant. I am a light sleeper and room 17 was at the the side of the bar and there was road noise til 3am. The room had broken air conditioning unit and I didn't sleep for two nights despite Captain's repeated efforts to fix it. He eventually got an engineer out to replace the whole unit which he admitted had actually been broken the previous week. It got fixed so that was good. This was my sixth visit to Skiathos and the rooms at Apollon were the smallest we have stayed in . The kitchen area has everything there- but realistically it's too small to cook in. Without going into detail the toilet was not great!We had problems getting a bill - we stayed four nights and ate two breakfasts but were charged for three. On a positive note - I injured my leg and Dounia and Captain couldn't have been be more helpful - giving me ice/ lending me a stick to help me. Also the young lad there works like a Trojan ! We decided to move to Kanapitsa Mare because it had easy access with lifts/no steps for the last few days - and I'm so glad we did. There were a lot of returning guests at Villa Apollon who seem very happy there and many knew each other from previous visits - but It's not for everyone .
