Zorbas In Town Family Studios
Ranked #11 of 14 Hotels in Skiathos Town
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

We have had the most fabulous 2 weeks at the Zorbas! The family who run it are the nicest people we have ever met. They built the complex themselves and it is a true labour of love. Dimitri took my husband sea fishing which was the highlight of his holiday, it was a great honour to be asked. We stayed in a Studio right by the pool. Room was clean & just what we expected. There is a hill but it was a pleasure to walk for the most amazing views. Dimitri cooks the best chips we have EVER tasted ! and the club sandwich is huge! Not a lot on the menu but what is done is lovely. We will be booking to go next year because we loved everything about it.

Stayed: June 2014

We booked this holiday late through Thomson/tui but didn't expect to get a second rate room.
Zorbas itself is clean and well run, the apartments are set up quite a steep hill so not suitable for the unfit.
It is a beautiful setting with lovely views over the valley and bay, the brothers who own and run the apartments are friendly and helpful however.........................
Our room didn't have a balcony, just a small area outside the studio doors adjacent to the corridor to the other studios, and stairs leading to the families accommodation, so absolutely no privacy and therefore unusable. The room was dark and cold - we had to have the light on whenever we were in no matter how bright the sunshine outside. We also had to ask for basic items like cups and glasses to drink from so felt that the room hadn't been prepared prior to our stay.
I feel that this room should not be used and this is why I have posted this review. When I booked it stated 'hurry only one room left' if you see this DO NOT BOOK!!
Otherwise I would say it is a pleasant place to stay.

We have just spent a wonderful week at Zorbas Family House, the whole family made us feel so welcome, everywhere was spotless, beautiful pool and views. We enjoyed lovely lunches cooked by Dimitri and Nicko while Angelos looked after us in at the bar in the evening his musical knowledge is amazing. We cannot wait to visit again next year. Thank you so much.

Zorbas has great views, a short but steep approach from main road that would challenge the less able.
Enjoyed our stay, felt very welcome . Guests & staff where very friendly.
Down sides:
Pool bar open until early hours of morning, until last man stands. This did dissapoint, as effected a good nights sleep.
No hot water in morning!
Would return as well run, apart from comments above. In high season pool bar could be an issue.
Have been to many appartments in Greece so feel my review is fair.

Spent two weeks at Zorbas apartments, Sept 3rd - 17th. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and spotless , the bed linen and towels changed regularly. The bar and pool area were kept spotless by Nikos and his brothers, the food and weekly BBQ was tasty and good value for money, The home made Moussaka was delicious. All the family were friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble .We will hopefully return in the near future, even the steep hill wouldn't put us off it was well worth the climb and the exercise did us good. Thanks for a wonderful holiday, with wonderful views. Sara, Ian and Dave.

My partner and I got back from a week here yesterday (august 2013) and loved it. The hotel is small and basic but the family are welcoming, rooms are spacious and clean and have everything you need. It's extra for air con but we didn't bother but that's just a personal preference I guess.
No hassle checking in, just sit yourselves at the pool bar, have a drink and then Nikos will come and fetch you and show you to your room.
It's a steepish but short hill up from the main road but your luggage gets bought up for you so you just have to get yourselves up. The short climb is worth it as it means the hotel has lovely views out over the island and the sea. You could choose a hotel on the main road without the hill climb but I'd prefer my room and pool not be overlooking a main road or the back of another hotel.
Near to the hotel are several restaurants, we didn't even venture off on to the main road as the smaller, family run places locally are much nicer. The bus stop is at the bottom of the hill so you can get around the island easily and the beach is 2 minutes from the bus stop.
I'd recommend this hotel whole heartedly.
