“Can't praise enough!”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

What a wonderful place. Family owned and run, so friendly, impeccably clean. We had the most lovely two weeks here. The apartments are less than five minutes walk from the main road and bus stop. Kolios beach (my favourite on the island) is very close by. There is a small supermarket opposite for essentials and a taverna on site in the evenings, delicious home-cooked food. Cannot wait to go back, with the experience we had and reading the other reviews hope we'll be able to get an apartment again and they won't be fully-booked. Lovely accommodation on a lovely island.

First holiday in Skiathos and the Diamond Apartments were recommended and I have no hesitation in recommending the apartments. A well-run family establishment it has a good, quiet location. Our routine was a leisurely continental breakfast and then a walk down to the beach until early afternoon and after a bite to eat and a drink back to the apartments to spend time by the pool which was always quiet.
Everywhere clean and tidy and lots of establishments nearby to eat and drink.
Good to spend some time in Skiathos Town and it maybe sad but you have to go down to the edge of the runway and experience a plane landing very close to where you are standing!

Just got back from two weeks in Skiathos Diamond apartments.Everything was just perfect.
Only 10 min from the airport (18 euro) and 5-8 min walk from the fantastic Kolios beach.
Rooms are very generous and kept very clean. Bathroom is cleaned everyday, plenty of fresh towels etc.Room has a very good aircon. Soula and Christos are very friendly, caring and helpful owners. Pool area is very clean and never too busy. Small supermarket just crossed the road. Bus stop 15 is just 2 min walk and it will take you to Skiathos town ( 1.60 euro adult, 0.80 euro child) where you can shop and eat. Can definitely recommend fantastic little restaurant called MEATing point in small side street or one on the high street called Ergon. All in all we had a fantastic stay and WILL most definitely like to return next year some time some place.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 17 overlooking the mountings. Away from the restaurant and swimming pool. Beau...

We've been in 3 at skiathos diamond for 15 days between 1 and 15 august 2013.
The hotel is nice, it has a good position, far away from the noise and traffic of the main road of skiatos, but still at walking distance from the bus stop and from the beach, surrounded by shops and restaurants (walking distance). It is in a middle position between skiathos city and the nice beaches of kukunari and banana. You need a car to visit the island, but that's true anyway regardless of the hotel position you choose.
The hotel is perfectly clean, has very large totally independent rooms, big bathroom with nice shower. the hotel is only 5 years old. The swimming pool is not big but is adeguate for the last swim of the day, after the beach, at sunset.
The owners, Christos and Sula, are a very nice couple, always available, correct and friendly.
The island is a very nice place, good clima, green, nice people, clean; but our holiday was perfect also because of this hotel !

Writing a review of the Paradiso Taverna as didn't stay in the apartments but a villa a little way up the valley. My family of three ate here on five nights over a period of two weeks and I have to say it was by far the best place we sat down to dinner to during our stay on the island. The location might not be as prodigious or spectacularly located as some of the joints on Skiathos, the furniture and decor is functional rather than flouncy, but the family are just great, the service pleasant, efficient, and yet totally understated. The cooking is robust, traditional and superb by the standards of the competition. A blow out meal for three with deserts of baclava etc accompanied by beer and wine never came to more than fifty euro with tip: and being judicious I think you could probably get away with circa 10 euro a head if you made the right choices. Highly recommended by me.

We have just returned from a fabulous two weeks in Skiathos staying for the first time at the excellent Skiathos Diamond apartments in Kolios. We expected it to be nice having read previous tripadvisor reviews but it was so much better than we had imagined.

They are set a short walk away from the main road (5 minutes) so idyllic and peaceful (no traffic noise), with picturesque views over the olive and pine tree clad mountains. With these stunning views its ideal for just lazing and day dreaming around the pool. A large modern pool, spotlessly clean and well maintained with plenty of sunbeds for everyone, although often just us and another couple there while everyone else was at the beach. The nearest beach (Kolios) is a 10 minutewalk away. Its a shingle beach which softly shelves into the sea (beautiful clean water) and has a taverna serving drinks and nice food. You can find sandy beaches a further 5-10 mins walk away ...or get a bus.

Skiathos beaches and resorts are grouped along a main road that is serviced by a bus that runs every 15-20 minutes. The bus stops are numbered 1-26 along the route... the apartments are at number 15 (nice half way point?). Skiathos town is at bus stop number 4, only 6 kilometres away and costs 1.6 euros by bus (the maximum bus fare is 3 euros)

The complex is only about 20 apartments, mainly studios. The studios are huge with twin beds that you can form a large double by pushing together, dressing table and wardrobe... the middle section of the studio has a coffee table and two 2-seater sofas which can convert to beds... and finally a very well equipped kitchen area (2 cooker rings, kettle, fridge with freezer compartment and all the pans, plates, glasses, cups, utensils etc). The bathroom is a reasonable size with loo, wash hand basin and wall/hand held shower with a wrap around curtain (Greek style) and bathroom cabinet for all your bits and pieces. Air con is included in the price of the room, as is breakfast and daily emptying of bins, clean sheets and towels every 3rd day ... they even made sure we had 3 loo rolls at all times (usually have to buy our own!).

The on-site Taverna was only open in the evenings but served some of the most delicious home-cooked food we had anywhere in Skiathos.. and at a fraction of the price. Beef Stiffado or a mixed souvlaki served with chips and salad for example was about 7 or 8 euros... half a litre of house wine 3 or 4 euros.

Christos and Soula (husband and wife) are fabulous hosts and really made you feel welcome and part of the family, and their children are a delight. Grandad grows and supplies all the veg for the taverna and maintains the lovely gardens, while Grandma does most of the cooking (she shared one of her secret recipes with me).

I would recommend these apartments to anyone wanting to holiday in Skiathos and we will definitely be going back. Most of the people we spoke to there had also returned many times to these apartments. A perfect place to relax and unwind with lots of tavernas within a 10-15 min stroll, and only a short bus ride from a very vibrant and cosmopolitan town/port if you want something more lively. I used a booking agent this time but would have no hesitation in booking direct in future, and getting a better price.

Room Tip: The apartments are over 2 floors and in 2 blocks of 10. The upper floors give the best views as you...

We have just returned from another glorious stay at these wonderful apartments, spotlessly clean and well maintained.Perfect for families or couples.Christos and Soula are a wonderful couple where nothing is too much trouble, you come away feeling like part of their lovely family.
The lovely pool and fabulous backdrop makes these apartments a definite must visit and once you do i am sure you will return.
Skiathos town has many restuarants not a bad meal to be had, the people are so friendly and we can recommend 1901 restuarant.
Bus rides are busy but cheap and taxis can be negotiated but they like to pack them in!
Christos and Soula have a taverna at the apartments with lovely home cooked food by Christos mother and i can recommend the Baclava! unfortunately i am on a diet now!!
We really love these apartments, constant towel and sheets changed and apartments attended to everyday.
First class. All rooms have aircon at no extra price.

Room Tip: we stayed in room 8 and 9 last year great views overlooking the pool, lovely.
