Nice quiet spot once you get used to the barking dog! We were on the top floor, good views and quite private - in our opinion much better than the ground floor for privacy. Good pool and although the sunbeds were fairly busy, the pool rarely was. The apartment was on the small side but kept clean and the shower did have a hook - we didn't find it for a few days so it may be that others missed it too as it's high up! Good powerful shower. The beds are very hard, not good if you have joint problems, I was in agony every morning and my husband, who doesn't have joint problems, was also suffering. The drinks at the bar were very reasonable but if you're looking for music and a busy bar this isn't the place for you. We were there at the beginning of September and didn't need air con even though it was hot, we hired a fan for 15 euros which was very good value as we had it on most of the time. The safe was 20 euros - these were 2 weekly charges. Crockery and cutlery was very thin on the ground, only 2 of everything. We had 2 chipped bowls and a chipped glass, nothing matched, this could definitely be improved. It was good to have mosiquito screens on the windows so that they could be left open at night. Although we liked the studios we wouldn't go back because of the problem with the beds and also the walk up and down the hill was quite difficult for us - it's fine if you're reasonably fit - we would stay nearer the beach another time and we will definitely go back to Skala.
