Came to Skala Hotel 25 years ago for our honeymoon so decided to return for our 25th anniversary. Was a bit worried I wouldn't like the changes but I needn't have. There are more roads, buildings and a new marina on Patmos but it's still as lovely as it was.
The hotel has been refurbished and is very comfortable and conveniently located near the harbour, restaurants and shops - though well set back behind the main road so not noisy. The staff, headed by Theo, are extremely friendly and helpful and answered our endless questions without seeming to tire of them! They had prepared our room with flowers, wine and pastries (as we had told them it was our anniversary) which was a lovely surprise! Breakfast had plenty to choose from - croissants, bread, cake, cookies, cheese, meat, yogurt, fruit, eggs etc - and there was covered seating outside which was perfect. The pool (with bar) was a great alternative to the sea and there was a shower and towels were provided for it. As part of an eco-friendly drive they have installed shutter doors which keep out an amazing amount of heat! And the air-conditioning (which was included) did not work unless the shutters and doors were closed. Also the electricity cut out when you left the room so that there is no wastage. The cleaning ladies did a great job every day leaving the room looking spotless.
Would recommend to couples, families and business people but not groups of friends as the atmosphere is one of peace and quiet. In fact the whole island is peaceful as (due to the presence of the monastery) there are no clubs. This only adds to its charm.
Skala Hotel is great value for money and is worth more than its 3 star rating!
