We have just had a ten day holiday at this hotel that was thouroughly enjoyable. The staff were very helpful and friendly especially Joanna the cheeky one. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious with a gorgeous sea view, they are also very well maintained by the daily cleaning staff.The food was excellant and catered for all tastes, we chose all inclusive which was well worth the money.

Nice hotelrooms with daily fresh towels (if needed). Beautifull views. You can see the sunrise if you have a room with see view.Nice pool with good sunbeds and large umbrellas. The staff is truly fantastic, we had some medical problems throughout the holiday and they were very helpful. The breakfast was very good but no fresh orange juice, if you want you have to pay 2 euros a glass.
A few minor things the hotel can improve in is the wifi and dinner. The wifi was awfull, it was hard to get a connection. Seems the server is to small for the amount of guests as i couldnt get an ip adress most of the time.
The dinner in my opinion could have been a lot better. The salad bars are fantastic though. And the drink prices at dinner are way to high. The cheapest bottle rose is 14 euros (0.7l) and wasnt very good. Glass of wine is 5 euros. A litre wine in skala restaurants was 6 or 7 euros and very tastefull!
Conclusion : Great hotel to chill at poolside, nice hotelrooms, good breakfast. For dinner go to skala town a few nights to enjoy good food instead of the hotel food.

We had a very nice week at this hotel, room was very spacious clean with a lovely sea view.
The nearest town Scala is about 7K we walked it one day took about 1 hour easy walking, there is a free bus from Hotel we took it back, I don't think I would tackle the trek back to the Hotel ( a few steep hills )
The food was mostly good but could have been a bit hotter, my wife is vegetarian she found it a challenge some times but was helped by the chef, staff were always helpful and friendly.
I don't think we will return to this Hotel it's just a little out of the way for us, but if you want to stay put or hire a car it may be just the place for you.
I must just ad a mention for George he is a great asset to the Hotel nothing is too much trouble for George, Thank You George.

Room Tip: try for a room close to restaurant.

We had a lovely holiday. Sadly the weather was mixed. The staff were all friendly. The rooms, cleanliness etc were very good.
The WIFI was very 'iffy' but worked well in the reception lobby. Not advertised so was a bonus, as was the fridge in our room.
The entertainment was quite good. Fabulous flowers and gardens.
The pool & views were absolutely amazing as was the chapel.
The beach area is just concrete platforms, not unnatractive.
The food unfortunately was all buffet-style and was all quite nice with plenty of variety. We were half board, if you were all-inclusive you had 1 meal in the A la Carte restaurant on-site but not us. The wine was very expensive.
We think that a big point for the hotel should state the the hotel is not suitable for people with walking or mobility difficulties.
The courtesy bus to the local villages was very useful and it would be nice if the driver could crack a smile now & again. There is nowhere to wander around in the evenings.
Very cheated to not be able to use the indoor pool unless you paid 10 euros each, not clear in the brochure. Bit of a mix although undoubtedly a fabulous site, panoramic. The brochure does not show the steepness of the build.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the same level as the restaurant

Wow, wow, wow, fantastic hotel, even more fantastic staff. (special thankyou to Christina in the bar, who always had a smile and a warm welcome) having said that all the staff from reception at booking in, bar staff, restauarant staff, were all fantastic. The hotel is definatley worth the star rating that it has, its clean and efficient, the Al a Carte restaurant is a must, beautifull meal and service. Only one very small thing that I felt that could be improved and that was the air conditioning,towards the end of our week (back 27th May) it had got quite hot, and the air con did not seem adequate, but this is the only thing that I was not 100% happy with, everything else including the food (which I know some people were not happy with) was fantastic, and we would most certainly return to the hotel and Skala.

Room Tip: high floor near to reception, a doddle to go to the pool, not so good coming back though.

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Apostalata 5* resort and I can honestly say we were thrilled that we booked this hotel. The staff are all so friendly and polite, the hotel is immaculate and very well run. We booked half board however decided to upgrade to all inclusive once we had spent our first day as we were so pleased with what was available. The restaurant and food was fantastic always something different to choose, unless your so fussy that you go abroad just to eat 'English' food! The free Al a carte dinner was amazing the best I've experienced and we have booked many all inclusive hotels throughout Greece, Turkey and Spain! The view from our room was fantastic, whilst the hotel is set upon a slight hill and there are lots of slops and steps to tackle to get to the pool area and beach, it is well worth it as the view is to die for. The entertainment is not something we would choose as part of our holiday but I must say it was classy and entertaining not a karaoke in sight!! We will definitely recommend this place to family and friends and be back next year!

Room Tip: If you have mobility problems ask for a room near the main building.

Just been reading some previous reviews during the same time that we stayed here and I am wondering if these people were at the same hotel where we stayed.
From the time we set foot in this hotel the staff were brilliant, 1000% helpful all of them and always so happy and clearly worked together as a team.
The food was really very good indeed, lots of variety, always hot and the salads were so fresh. The restaurant area was super clean and the waiter staff worked hard, although they could of been a little more cheerful, but that's my only complaint.
The bar staff were great, again very happy and always did their best to ensure we were served quickly and if things were busy they would bring our drinks over to us and serve us at our table. The entertainment was also very good, something different each evening, not to everyone's taste but then you can't please everybody (at least there was no bingo!)
The hotel itself was really lovely and set in some very well kept gardens, it is very hilly though and there are lots of steps but there is always a member of staff passing to give you a lift in the golf buggy. The hotel is kept to a very good standard and is genuinely attractive and always very clean. The pool area is lovely, the pool is well maintained and the pool bar and restaurant well stocked with snacks and drinks, never had a problem getting a sun bed or a seat. Again the staff here are happy and work very hard to please you.
I have saved the best person to last, George, the entertainments guy is a very special guy, always happy and helpful and can't do enough for you he is a credit to the team - thanks to him he made our holiday special.
It is advisable to hire a car to get about the lsland it's such a pretty place to visit - not much in skarla to be honest but it's worth a visit if just for a cocktail on the beach.
I will defiantly be returning to this hotel next year and I think beyond because I loved it - keep up the brilliant work guys and George we love you. X
