Nothing Did not like the ants in my room, or the fact that I had to pay extra for internet service and the signal did not extend to our room. Room was a joke whole place felt like I was in an ABBA video totally outdated no way this place is a 4 star hotel whoever gave them 4 stars needs to be water tortured. They could not even provide us with towels for the pool, what a joke.
Location Smelly first floor and basement
The staff was friendly, the room cleaning was good and the location is very good. Very old furnitures (chair's etc.) at the lobby, the pool and all the public areas and also in the room
good place , nice beach hotel management is bad , very bad breakfast
Outside situation The hotel is unglected (the rooms)
Nice location, relaxed, proximiry to the beach of kanapitsa and village Rooms equipment slightly old
View from Pool Deck and Breakfast around pool deck. Was promised wireless internet access in room - there was no wireless and no wired access in my room. Room quality was very poor and does not look like anything in photos. Disappointed with expectations - should not list promise things if hotel not deliver all !!!
cape kanapitsa its a great hotel is situated at the beautiful beach of kanapitsa and has an amazing view from all over the rooms of the hotel. we asked for an upgrate at the room because we loved the hotel and we took the suite. its ideal for a young couple like us, we couldnt go out from the room the view was stunning , the decoration, everything. the breakfast was good and the view from the pool was beautiful....i would recomend it for sure!!!!nice staff too! keep up the good work
The location and the lovely view. The room was very comfortable and clean, the hotel staff polite and helpful when asked for aditional infornation about our stay in Skiathos. I would definitly recommend it!
Spectacular views of the sea, mountains and beach from the rooms and pool side.
Ok hotel, fantastic view! Although it needs some improvement works, some areas/facilities seem worn out and old.... Far from either the city and the major beach (it's right hlafway from both). Can only be reached by taxi or own car, busses are always full when passing in front of Canapitsa so it's impossible to use public transportation. Not real value for money....
5 star view did not have twin rooms, only 2 single single beds pushed together, had to rearrange furniture. Air conditioning right above bed very unhealthy, woke up with sore throat every morning
Excellent location - near 2 beaches, near the bus stop to town, but far enough from the road so that it does not disturb you. A food store just nearby (there you can also buy towels and other small stuff). The hotel provides only breakfast. It would be nice to have the possibility to eat lunch in the hotel sometimes (otherwise it is 15 min by bus to Skiathos town where there are plenty of restaurants). Sound isolation between rooms is quite poor.
the only memorable, about this hotel was the breakfast which was a rich one in my opinion the room was fill in ants, the sheets was never changed. But the biggest thing was, that in booking the room.What i mean is that i booked the room for 4 nights via booking.com, in a very good price, but i decided that 4 days is too short, so i called the hotel talked with the supervisor and said to me to cancel the reservation from booking.com and reserve it again...all that to add 2 more nights!! I tried to explain to him, (like i have to,he should know better), that the reservation was not returnable and i would loose the already deposit that they had taken from my credit card...I would maybe should stop here because i have more better things to do, than remember those people and the luck of doing business.
The hotel was well situated and the staff was helpful and always in good spirits! We were pleasantly surprised with the spaciousness of the room, as the pictures on the net didn't do it justice. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who likes good service, clean and spacious rooms.
Unfortunately, i left the hotel on the 6th day. The reasons are: 1. Had an accident after using the pool shower. An uncovered frear was enough to injure my left leg. Dangerous for kids and adults. 2. No precaution measures to the pool. 3m depth pool oblige the hotel to have a life guard, or several life vests around. 3. No umbrellas to the pool area. This facts make me wanna leave hotel, although i pick it up, for relaxation. 4.Wanted to support my country, and that's why i decided to visit Skiathos island again. The above hotel is far more expensive either for the facilities, or services.One of the worst choices i have ever made. The hotel needs a well experienced manager, reception desk( except a girl, her name is Lamprini.......was trying to do everything) clening staff, and staff for the very poor morning buffet.
Nothing - We tried to change hotel as soon as we faced the below situation but all five star hotels were full- Really I wonder how comes and they are considered to be four star hotel-???? Which organisation gave them the four stars- We travel a lot, we stayed in many hotels all around the world but really such a situation we never faced- It was durty, not enough towels, shampoo and soap, dirty floor, dirty corridors, cups and plates eveerywhere outside and insid the room, dirty bathroom, breakfast was discusting so we attaeended 2 times only - food was only for animals, people were not friendly not talking, not greeting their guets in the morning or night- It was a very bad experience -
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and with a great view to the sea which was very relaxing.
The staff was very friendly and helped us with any question we had. The free high speed internet was very helpful. We really enjoyed the sea view from our room in the second floor. The nicest thing was the gym facility that overlooked the sea side, making it comfortable to have a nice workout.
Fantastic views, perfect location,outstanding rooms, friendly staff, lovely restaurant, great breakfast selection perfect holiday
Wonderfull view, friendly and helpfulll staff, excellent breakfast
The staff treated us more like friends than guests. A lovely small hotel in a good location.
We enjoyed very pleasant atmosphere of the family hotel Magic. Also the island of Skiathos is beautiful. It is a real Paradise with many wonderfull beaches, crystal pure water in the sea and azzure blue sky all the time.
The staff at reception were so welcoming and the dudes looking after us at breakfast were cool. Only a short walk to a very relaxing beach. The room was excellent with an awesome view over the bay.
The quiet and location of the allocated room within the hotel. The friendliness and genuine warmth of the staff. restaurant food very good. The music played around the pool area could become tiresome and occasionally noisy or inappropriate to the type of guest - not everyone likes constant music. Considering the amount of fruit grown on Skiathos, the daily melon and tinned fruit for breakfast should perhaps be improved upon.
Friendly staff clean rooms, fantastic views and location Pool bar was not open but was due to open soon
Everything was very nice. Food was good staff were excellent. View from balcony amazing. Only real disappointment was the at the rooms were small, given the price we paid. We were annoyed that having booked and paid for a triple room it turned out to be a small standard twin room with an extra bed shoved in with no room between any of the beds-uncomfortably tight accomodation. Also the air conditioning was too loud.
location,clean,friendly staff couldn't do enough for us.would go back anytime. breakfast was ok but not enough choice of hot food.
Our delux comfy room with 4 poster bed was lovely with balcony with great view of the sea. Having breakfast with a panaramic view was an added bonus! Fresh fruit juice and more fresh fruit rather than tinned & melon would have improved the breakfast! Its just a shame the beach is on the other side of the main road but the views are stunning! A solution could be to get an area on the beach for your own sunbeds?!! Would like to see the communal corridors and external stairs cleaned more often.
the beach, the restaurant ath the beach, the pool area anyone can go to the beach ... the beach is not protetcted to be only for the hotel guests.
nice beach, nice breakfast less service as confirmed in the booking ( no satellite, no cd player, no internet access in the room ), bathroom not clean enough
Reception staff on arrival very good- showed us to room. Room clean and everything available. Well cleaned and excellent bathroom. We ate twice in the hotel restaurant in the evening- first time Asian food- not very good- food was quite cold when served. Second time tried South American- average food- not as good as we would expect. We would recommend more high quality Greek food.
the food was good and fresh, the position on the beach was perfect for a 5stars hotel it's impossible to believe that everytime i have had to ask for the soap when it was finished. the bathroom was really dirty even after cleaning
the spa was surprisingly good. proximity to the beach was outstanding. staff were incredibly friendly. gym facilites were poor, but good as far as island offerings go.
There is an onsite beautician so if you want a manicure, pedicure or massage just to chill out you can squeeze it in before you go the beach. Staff are courteous. All the common areas of the hotel - pool, bar, lawns etc are excellently maintained. The rooms were spacious but a bit sparsely furnished for a five star hotel. Our room would have benefited from some small repairs/maintenance such as shutter handles & on windy nights the door to the room rattled. Bring your own hairdryer - the ones provided are not up to the job. Also you are paying top notch for any refreshments etc consumed on premises or at beach restaurant due to same said five stars but there are lots of other choices within walking distance so don't let this put you off.
> location is perfect, beach and view > early in the season (May), not enough personnel and not all the menu food is available. Attitude of personnel (esp beach restaurant) is not realy service oriented. Example; moving the table in the restaurant a view meters so we could sit in the sun, was too much to ask for...not a 5 star hotel service...
The layout. with the proximity of all amenities ( pool, beach, restaurants). It is close to the town and the fact that children can have fun in a secure and safe environment.
The service is good
location, excellent beach and pool. very laid back and good standard for a greek hotel. Friendly helpful staff and very clean. lovely lunchtime beach taverna. Food generally a good standard (but not fine dining). Good entertainment in the evening Hotel has a lot of rules which seem to be designed to make you spend more - eg if you buy a bottle of wine in the restaurant, you can take it to your room but cannot bring it back in the restaurant the following evening to finish it and you cannot take it out and finish it in the bar. Drinks in the hotel very expensive which is a shame as it means people flock out in the evening making the bar a bit lacking in atmosphere
The staff were extremely accomodating
The staff and service in the main were excellent. Little things, e.g. towels put out by the pool, were done well. Nothing was really too much trouble The music from the poolside bar, especially after midnight, became very annoying
Olga from the reception, she was so genuine kind and service minded!
Great hotel, amazing location in Skiathos town but quiet. Comfortable and spacious rooms. And beds are great! The hotel restaurant is one of the best we've ever tried. The quality and choice of food is excellent(even fresh fish), service and atmosphere by the pool are superb. We come to Skiathos every year and La Piscine is definitely the best hotel we stayed by far.
I loved staying at La Piscine art Hotel. It has the perfect location in town. Not to far from the centre and close to all bars! I ate at the the hotels restaurant and the food was amazing! The fish was fresh and the service very professional. Plus the atmosphere around the pool with candles was very serene. I definitely recommend that you try the restaurant. The rooms are clean and all the staff very friendly, warm and welcoming.
location close to the town center but not exactly in the center is a perfect compromise through amenities,useful tips and relax.
Very friendly staff, convenient location. Breakfast was below average, need to notify reception if you want your aircondition switched on as there is no control from the room. Also carpets in main reception need changing as they are dusty and they smell.
Very polite and helpful staff. Good breakfast.
Lovely pool and pool bar. Nice private beach. Good breakfast buffet. Hotel spotlessly clean. easy access to Skiathos town. Had dinner in hotel on first night and meal was not that nice.
We enjoyed the location of the hotel, its facilities. Hotel staff was also very friendly. We hope to come back someday. Thank you!
Great location, overlooking beach with good facilities on beach. Very helpful staff with all furnishings to a high standard Very quiet during the evening with no atmosphere around the bar areas - this impacted by close proximity to Skiathos town.
don't give the same breakfast every day.
The breakfast in the morning was of very good quality with a lot of selection. The price per night did not represent the overall services it was providing
great staff, especially at the reception and at the pool bar,perfect location, close to the city of Skiathos,confortable rooms 1/very poor breakfast for the 5 stars hotel, every morning the same 2/ first 3 days of our stay the beach was not clean 3/too many people and not enough umbrellas
The surrounding scenery was excellent. The hotel's gardens were artistically designed. The breakfast buffet had everything I expected. Even though the room was spacious, there was no bathtub but a small shower.
The view is excellent and in front of the beach. Ideal for families. The kindergarden is in the basement next to the toilletes and therefore it is moisty.
Our room had great view.It was comfortable,relaxing and simple without unnecessary luxury.The stuff was helpful and friendly without being too formal and overly polite.The dinner was good and you can enjoy it around the pool in a relaxing atmosphere.Many beaches are close to the hotel.
Location, the unique architecture and the peace!Also the room was excellent. Due to being built into cliff not a large area around the pool resulting in limited number of beds being available. Large amount of steps but have to accept that due to location!
Very nice view from the room, friendly staff, very good breakfast buffet. There is a beautiful beach close by, but belongs to a different hotel (extra fee needed)
The location fantastic.The stuff very friendly & helpfull too. The breakfast was good enough.The room confortable & with great sea-view. More carefull clearing the bathroom.Satelite-tv with only 3or 4 international channels should not be called satelite-tv at all. The internet server was out of order at least for a week.(Unacceptable for a 4-star hotel). The time schedule of the pool should not be ending at 18.30. It is too early.
Liked the architecture, great view, breakfast and bar, friendly staff, stylish public rooms,nice bathroom, lots of space for luggage Horrible metal bed bases that cut your legs as you brush past them. Pillows could have been softer (recommend the hotel gets down pillows?) Room was a bit soulless, could have more character. Though buffet dinner was bland and overpriced. How about some hooks to hang things.
Great design. Well run. Location. Very hard bed.
Cleaning services work very well, so the rooms are very clean. Also the ladies at the reception desk are friendly and helpful Nothing to do with Greek hospitality and definitely not a four star hotel (hardly a three star). Very noisy rooms (both from other rooms, road and cleaning staff), no friendly services at pool or restaurant that only serves very average buffet food.
The room was very large and nicely decorated. The restaurant only served buffet meals. The view from our deluxe sea view suite was partially obstructed by another building.
The view from the balcony is breathtaking and the staff extremely polite and helpful.Ideal for relaxation, away from crowds and noise.
The view was excellent. Make sure that you ask for a room at high floors otherwise there in no good view. Rooms were clean. Again magnificent sea view. The breakfast buffet was poor. Not enough variety, and not enough quantity. If you went there in the last 20 minutes before buffet closed, most of the trays were empty.
Tha owners were attentive and helpful. The room was comfortable and the price appropriate. The views were fantastic. There was nothing to complain about!
The owner was very kind and helpful The shower lacks a tent
The guys were excellent..Excellent chioce!
Staff is excellent. Very friendly and very helpful. The room is clean. the view is fantastic. Excellent option for a low budget hotel. Definitely recommend it.
i received an e mail from fhe owner a few days prir to my arrival offering me to pick me up for free upon my arrival on the island, but there was not one there to pick me up, i had to find a phone, the pancion (hotel) is almost impossible to find on your own. the room was ok confortable bed, beautifull view, friendly owners, a bit noisy with noise from other clients coming in late, but for the money i recommend it no problem... i give it a 6 plus i would go back... i even stayed an extra night
The extreme kindness and helpfulness of the owners, Babis and his wife. No complains of any kind. We shall certainly stay there again in the future.
The pension is located in an excellent position, in a quiet area only one minute walking from the main streets. The view from the room is breathtaking. Yota and her husband were extremely helpful and always went out of their way. I would definitely come back to this place and highly recommend it.
Our hosts are charming.
I liked the owners who were helpful and met me from the Airport and took me back when I flew home. I loved my room with a view and the fact that it had a balcony
Mostly beach food and quite nights out The steps were. Very scary do not recommend heals!
A quiet location with nice courtyard having a large pool and great breakfast at the poolside. The rooms were clean and bathroom was spacious. The staff were very friendly. Not easy access with a hire care and its a bit of a walk from the ferry (but the walk is flat and so not really a problem)
The lovely bar and the decor
Friendly ,stress free
Friendly staff and an excellent location in the centre of Skiathos Town but it still managed to feel like it wasn't in town as it was quiet. the breakfast fare was of good quality but was repetitive.
discreetly managed no
It's in the middle of the Skiathos town. Breakfast was every day the same.
The hotel location, room, facilities, the hotel owners and all staff were 1st class and enabled us to have a wonderful relaxing holiday. Only that we were unable to stay longer than 2 weeks and are unfortunately unable to return until next year!
The Bourtzi was a great hotel. In fact everything about it ticked all the boxes for us. From location,cleanliness,breakfasts and most inportant the staff. They were loverly people. would hope to ga again. No
The hotel is comfortable, clean, well serviced. The location is superb.
spacious room and good location no
