“Bubble burst ,just a little.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2012

This was our third time to these apartments.We still love them and recommend them but this year our holiday was spoiled somewhat by WASPS.!!

There were hundreds of them floating in the pool..No fault of the apartments of course but one day I attempted to scoop them out of the pool,as it was hot and I was in need of a cool down dip.There wasn't anyone from staff to do this and I felt a little let down.When Costa's came on duty,he simply put on the pool filter and the jaccuzi and the wasps seemed to flee from the water.So take that as a tip.

The salads were just as good and the staff as friendly as ever.

We hired our usual jeep from Mustang at the bottom of the track.140 euro's for 4 days.Unfortunately we were accused of breaking a clip on the roof.As it had rained for four days during our jeep hire,we didn't even attempt to remove the roof,never even touched the clip.We can categorically say that we did not break it.On return of the vehicle,the clerk went straight to the broken clip,as if she knew it was broken and tried to stitch us up.It took phone calls to head office in the town before they agreed not to charge us for repair.We was furious and it certainly spoiled my day.If you do hire from these people,check the vehicle for damage etc.It was even a very tatty jeep !!!

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room,leave the windows open and plug in mossie plugs, to avoid air con charges and...

Great location, quiet, beautifully kept - nice pool area with plenty of sunbeds. Food is really good in the poolside snack bar. Apartments very clean and in good condition. Have tried other accommodation in Skiathos but this is by far our favourite.

We stayed in the ground floor 1 bed room apartment for four. The staff were polite and friendly. The room was not as clean as we would have expect as the bins were only emptied every other day and on one occasion it was the third day . The bedding and towels were changed twice weekly. The kitchen area was small and there was very little kitchen equipment (cork screw, chopping board, can opener) or food preparation surface. We have stayed in Skiathos for the last 8 years and the position of the apartments were ideal for the beaches around Koukounaries and the bars and restaurants.

this was our first time to skiathos, 2 week stay and staying at eliso studio & apartments was an ideal place to start ,the room / apartment was very clean and plenty big enough for two, very clean as the maid came in everyday except sunday. there is a good pool and bar, and the staff are very friendly also stavos the owner is there to help,we sat most evenings speaking and having a drink with him and his family when we came back late (11 ish) shame none of the other guests stayed up they all came back and went straight to bed.
REMEMBER TO WEAR GOOD MOSQUITO REPELENT AS THEY ARE EVERY WERE
being at eliso apartments is also a good base the local store is only 5 minutes walk away along with bars and resturants (BIG BAD WOLF, STROFILIA, LLIAS ORCHARD, STAMELOS TAVERNA & AGUSTERA BAR i will review these seprately).
if you wish to travel to skathos town the bus stop 23 is also the same 5 minutes walk as all the resturants /bars are on the main single skiathos road just to warn you the bus gets very crowded( bit like sardines) but is great value at only 2 euro per person to town, but if your not up to being squshed and sweaty there are taxis that you can flag down just get the price before you get in.
also remember if you hire a car/jeep there is zero tolerence to drink driving so if someone bumps into you it could be a longer stay than you thought (jail) its not worth it as there is one road on one side of the island and even the beaches on the other side you can only get to via boat.
walking distance to the main koukounaries beach which is approx 20 min through a gate next to the bus stop and just follow the path throught a second gate by the side of a river over the bridge (hopefully seeing the two black swans) and your there.
and mandraki beach is approx 25 mins going the other side of the island going along a very sandy path through the pine forest this was our favorite beach less busy but still with a taverna which you could buy food and drink.

Room Tip: all rooms are good just very hot so recommend having air conditioning

Stayed in Eliso with 2 other friends this Summer for 2 weeks. The staff at Eliso were polite, professional and friendly. Staff were always on hand to help (E.g.when we couldn't work out how to use the safe)

The rooms and pool area were always clean and tidy, the pool area appears small, however there were always sunbeds free :) The pool bar is really good value for money! Food was simple (chips, toasted sandwiches etc) but cheap enough to eat there for breakfasts and lunches. The Sunday BBQ is a must! Not only is it good value, but it gets you talking to others on the resort (If thats your thing)

The hotel is one of the furthest away from Skiathos town however this isn't a negative! You're far away enough from the nightlife to not hear it, but as other reviews have stated its not too bad a journey on the bus into town! (2 euros each way)

We visited Mandraki beach (we had hired a car so drove) which was beautiful! from what others at the hotel had said it was about a 20 minute walk! they have sunbeds there to hire and its reasonably priced! (11 euros for 3 beds)

We hired a jeep for 4 days from europcar for 180 euros and it was money well spent!

We drove to the medievil town of Kastro (which is not reachable by bus) the only other way there is to take a day boat trip! It is not suitable for pushchairs, or wheelchair access or people who would stuggle to walk down steep rocky, uneven hillsides. However the beach is beautiful and the walk up to Kastro is tiring but worth it!

I recommend the Island hopper excursion with Thompson! It was great to go to Alonnissis and Skopelos. It was fantastic! I suggest the town visit that is offered by victoria in Skopelos, it was fantastic to see the 'real' town!

I Suggest going to see Mama Mia at the open air cinema in town! Its 8 euros each and worth it! It's so much fun and the people who work there help make it even more entertaining!

There are plenty of excellent places to eat in skiathos, The Big Bad Wolf is nice as it has plenty of choice, however I felt that the customer service wasn't great! everything was a 'bit too difficult'.

Overall our stay at Eliso was perfect! an excellent small, friendly resort and I would reccommend it to anyone!

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at the Eliso. For a complete relaxing and 'chill out' 10 days we can't recommend the Eliso and everyone who works there enough. Savos who manages the site is a complete gentleman and was always available to speak and even share a lovely cold "Mythos" with on the odd occasion.

The pool area is lovely and it was so refreshing that we didn't come down at any time during any day to sunbeds drapped in towels.

Mary was lovely who served us drinks and snacks throughout the day especially the Frappes... She actually showed us how to make them before we came home, although I don't think they will taste the same sipping them as we sit out looking out to rain and clouds!!!

The barbeque was a nice treat on Sunday, made by Mary's mum... yum, yum, yum.... lovely.

We hired a little jeep and driving through the forest in a 4x4 and just gazing at the amazing jaw dropping scenes you come across was a real highlight.

We can also recomend a visit (or two or three) to the Agustera Bar where you will be welcomed by Dino, Effi and Lesley, however we will warn you that Dino's cocktails become more and more elaborate... try a few and you will see what we mean!!!

And finally I do have to make a comment about our Thomson Rep. Mark. Mark was an absolute star, nothing seemed to be a problem for him and even when he wasn't officially working, he never seemed to be off duty......

If you love Greek Islands for a relaxing holiday as we do, then a stay at the Eliso in Skiathos is a must.

My husband and I have just returned from 10 days at the Eliso with Thomson. The only real problem for us is the nearly 3 hours drive to & from our UK airport. I hadn't done much research before we left so was "interested" when our pilot announced that we'd be landing on Europe's shortest runway so there'd be a lot of reverse thrust noise to slow us down! It was a very smooth landing and we had a few minutes wait while the one other plane there cleared the apron before we could disembark. We walked the 50 metres or so to the terminal building and passed very quickly through Passport control, as there were no staff there. How wonderfully Greek! We left our luggage for the truck to deliver and were dropped off about 5 minutes walk from the Eliso studios, up a rough road along the edge of the forest. The studios were very nice: beautifully secluded and peaceful, clean, nicely equipped and exactly what we needed.The fridge could have done with defrosting and I probably wouldn't recommend the beds to honeymooners but we had several linen and towel changes and the bins were emptied frequently. We've visited Greece many times and no longer feel the need to explore islands trapped in hot cars or coaches. We did walk down to the beach but, as we live by the sea at home, we don't get huge satifaction from spending holidays getting sand in our nooks and crannies. We spent the whole holiday reading by the lovely pool and it was a great way to recharge our severely depleted batteries. We found several good eateries and would recommend Big Bad Wolf, Stamelos Taverna's set Chinese menu and Under the Pine Tree for lovely souvlaki. The journey back was slightly stressful as we had to wait a while for our luggage to join us at the airport but the plane left early and arrived at Gatwick 20 minutes before it was due. Just what we needed and highly recommended.
