Just returned from a 2 week holiday in Skiathos at the Hermes Apartments. Location is ideal, only a 10 minute bus ride into the town and the bus stop is right outside. I would recommend you hire a car, there is only 1 main road and you can visit so many beautiful beaches this way. Loads of places to eat and all pretty good quality, but by far the best for service and quality would be the restaurant at the Hermes, would also try Johnnys which is just down the road and in the town I would recommend Lynari (just behind the High School). George(new George) and Denize at the Hermes are so friendly and easy to get along with and the food !! WOW would go for the fillet steak in pepper sauce, or Beef stifado, or Greek Salad and the pancakes OMG!
Beaches, depends what you want really if you want somewhere quiet, i would recommend Elias Beach (abit of a trek if you havent got a car) but its so beautiful, and it has a breeze all day (which believe me you will welcome) Spiros the guy that collects the money for the sunbeds and is the waiter at the only taverna, is such a nice guy and again the food at the taverna is fab and they have real chips ! and the Greek salad is to die for (although the one at the Hermes is un-beatable). I am really finding it hard to find any negatives about the Hermes and Skiathos. The room we had at the Hermes (number 4) was on 2 floors a two bedroomed apartment. We were so suprised when we arrived as it was like a mini villa living room/kitchen and a bathroom on the first floor and 2 bedrooms and another bathroom on the second floor. There is a supermarket on the Hermes complex too, priced the same as the ones that are in the town but the Hermes one is much cleaner and has more choice.
We really did have a fantastic time and hope to return next year. I had a 15 year old with me and a 4 year old with me and both really enjoyed it, so i would say suitable for all ages.
