Thompson have done it again. Just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Aeolos hotel Skala.
Can you believe all the excellent reviews on this hotel? Simply yes!! Absolutely everywhere is kept spotless, The pool is exellent and the poolside sunbed area looks out over the sea towards Zante. The bathroom shower is the best Greek shower ever experienced:- eat your heart out power shower!!
Our holiday included breakfast which comprised fresh fruit salad with greek yoghurt and honey, toasts, fruit juice, coffee (plus cold meats/cheese) made for a great start to every day. Not to your liking, then order a full English breakfast for just £3.75! Just ask and the poolside bar will provide lunch or an evening meal if you cannot be bothered to go out for the day. Be assured that Chris, Angela and Michael will make your stay very memorable.
Skala (means steps) has a one mile sandy beach with numerous bars and tavernas stretched
out along the adjacent road (pedestrian pavement most of the way) so some walking is on the cards. The Aeolos hotel is situated at the North end of this beach set back 100 metres up the hill. This secluded location gives you the best of both worlds:- peaceful and yet no more than a few hundred metres from a good supermarket and tavernas. Do visit the Paspoulis (right out of the hotel) and the Nautilis (left out of the hotel), their food and ambiance is great.
Skala is quite a small resort but can provide plenty of 'trips' to see the island:- round the island
day trip, visit Zante or Icatha or an evening in Argostoli the capital (have a meal at the Kalafatis
taverna and watch the turtles swim by).
A really great holiday and hotel.
