“Sports bar look- nice taverna feel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013 via mobile

We returned from 2weeks staying here on 20 sept (having stayed last year too). The pool area is lovely by day- v nice beds& cushions, the clearest cleanest pool water (fresh from the Well on site), with a shaded area to eat&/or drink. At night the fountain & pretty lights make for a nice backdrop to sit & ear or drink cocktails & possibly have a dance!
Don't be put off by the bright yellow signage (it does look a bit Benidorm), and actually doesn't, in my opinion give the right image for the actual class if the place. It suggests beer swilling cheap drinks- where in fact the food is brilliant & drinks priced as everywhere else. The indoor area (although 'sportsy' is large,cool and friendly). Late at night you can create a lovely party atmosphere in there with fellow guests - but no noise for other guests).
Kim (English lady), works mornings & serves breakfast (can't get better anywhere!)
Joanna (Greek girl), worked late afternoons-nights. She worked v hard- immediately tidying up the pool area, sweeping etc after the sunbathers left, ready for evening guests. I saw her go around to almost everyone saying hello & being friendly. Her English was v good, and we had no problem making ourselves understood... I think her English was improving by the day!
Nikos & chris are great. Chris is a permanently smiley guy- not intrusive- but friendly. Loves a bit of 'banter'.
Food: it's cooked by a lovely Greek lady, it's traditional, local & plentiful. Try it!
The view from the apartments is superb. They are spotless. We had clean towels when we hadn't used the others! (Ps there was me, my hubby & 23yr old son & room was big enough)
Thanx guys for another great holiday.
See you again!

Just returned from our holiday in Skiathos where we have been many times, and of course we visited Christakis sports bar! Best bar in skiathos! As usual everything was great- Chris was a brilliant host and always checking his customers are happy, Nikos was a fabulous barman and great company to sit with- love him! The other waitress was good at her job but she didn't seem very happy! She didn't introduce herself and wasn't smiling very much, maybe she just had a bad day? Get an English girl back in! Other than that it was a fab visit! See you next year! :)

Just returned from our 13th visit to Christakis studios in Troulos, we now call this place home! Christakis, Vaso, Costa, Joanna, Nikos & Kim a great big THANK YOU for helping to make our stay as wonderful as ever. You are the perfect hosts! Chris really looks after his guests!
The rooms are spotless, they are basic but typically Greek, air conditioning is available on request, everything you need when self catering, if you stay at the top of the hill the views of Troulos are fantastic. The pool area is so relaxing with comfortable sunbeds, a good size swimming pool and an outdoor bar. Chris has worked hard on the pool area this year and its looking better than ever. There is also an indoor bar where you can watch all the sports, it has a pool table and free internet access.
Vaso's food is wonderful - we can highly recommend the meat meze! were still full now! Lunchtime snacks and evening meals are available.
We have travelled many Greek islands and always said we would never go back to the same one but Skiathos is very special to us, the people of Skiathos are so friendly, it is typically Greek and hasn't changed a great deal over the years - I think 13 years in a row speaks volumes!
See you all next year!

We stayed in Troulos for 11 nights mid may and called in Christakis Sports Bar on our first night there. We were met by Tommy on the bar who welcomed us with a smile and banter. People think 'Sports Bar' and avoid but please go in and you wont be disappointed. Chris,Tommy and Hannah are brilliant hosts and make you feel so welcome. We will definitely be returning to Skiathos and no matter where we stay will be going to the sports bar frequently.

Recently returned from 2 week holiday in Troulos. Found this bar on our first day and just kept on returning. Chris is just so friendly with a wicked sense of humour. His staff (Tom on the cocktails bar by the poolside is so helpful on all thing Skiathos) and his lovely bar ladies help run this fantastic bar. The food here is to die for! Chris's mum and a very nice expat (sorry I did not catch your name) made the most delicious food. We did not have one bad meal and I wanted to take Chris's mum home with us for her homemade grub!
We didn't stay at his Apartments as we came as a couple and our kids are grown up but it did look a great place for families. Everywhere spotlessly clean ans very nice modern decor.
If you wanted to go indoors to watch football/ soaps you could or if not stay outside in the gorgeous surrounding pool area with pool bar. All really really nice. Can't wait to visit again!
