Hotel Costas & Mary is a small hotel set in the a lovely garden, it is spotlessly clean and is only a short walk to the town of Skiathos.
If you want a quiet, formal type of hotel then this is not for you, but if you want a family run, happy, informal hotel, where you can have a laugh with the family and girls, where after an evening meal you can come back and chat about what you have done and where you have dined over a few drinks and a hot chocolate with old and new friends, then this hotel is for you.
At breakfast Clotilde, one of the girls who assists Mary, may sing to you or be a little cheeky, but we have never found her rude or offensive in anyway, in fact she has always been very helpful to us, a lovely girl. Maybe if you are a sensitive or not a morning person then she could well be a little over the top.
Our room (101) was on the ground floor overlooking the gardens and bar pool area and we were never disturbed by any noise. We always kept the doors shut at night because of the mosquitoes, we both react badly to bites and stings.
Mary will make you a delicious salads, bacon and eggs, yoghurt, fruit & honey to die for and much more.

We do a lot of walking around the island.

Kekria is across the north of the island, lovely views across the mainland, lots of deserted beaches but they are difficult to reach.
We always call at the bakery for sandwiches cakes and water, for a picnic…..fantastic!
We recommended this hotel to our best friends, and they have returned 4 times, we have been 12 times.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone who likes a friendly, family run hotel and enjoys to mix with people of different ages and backgrounds.
The island can be difficult for people with disabilities, but can be done. We have pushed a relation round the town on 3 different 2 week holidays. It was hard work on the uneven surfaces and you are restricted to accessible places only. But we had a lot of laughs along the way.
