Just returned from a two week holiday in Skiathos staying at the Costas and Mary Hotel in Skiathos Town. We have visited Skiathos before and picked this Hotel for its location near the town centre (no more than a 10 minute stroll) for restaurants etc, and based upon the reviews. We were not disappointed. The hotel is typical of small Greek family run establishments in its size and facilities etc but is without doubt one of the best that we have stayed in. The rooms were quite adequate in size, spotlessly clean and well decorated and with all the facilities you would expect in a small hotel (except a kettle!). The room servicing was excellent with the room apparently cleaned every day and good quality fresh linen and towels seemingly always supplied. The pool and garden areas were great and very well maintained, and usually there was no problem in getting sun beds (none of that early morning towel nonsense). The poolside snacks were limited to lunchtime only and the menu was limited, but nevertheless the food was fine and priced reasonably. The bar was well stocked and the prices pretty much as in the town, but it closed promptly at 1am every night. Mary and the staff (mostly family) were excellent, tried to remember everybody's name and were very friendly. In summary an excellent small hotel ideal for a stay in Skiathos Town, which we would definitely use again (and we don't say that about too many places). However, do note, this is an hotel so no fridge in room (There was a refrigerated minibar though). Might be worth taking a travel kettle ? Plus one small observation (the only criticism really)... the accommodation here is usually B&B and the breakfast, whilst good is limited in choice and always the same. It got very monotonous after a few days. But don,t let that put you off . Get some fruit and stuff from the nearby Supermarket and breakfast on your balcony for a change. This hotel is a gem !
