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.
Fantastic views, perfect location,outstanding rooms, friendly staff, lovely restaurant, great breakfast selection perfect holiday
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 staff treated us more like friends than guests. A lovely small hotel in a good location.
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.
location,clean,friendly staff couldn't do enough for us.would go back anytime. breakfast was ok but not enough choice of hot food.
Wonderfull view, friendly and helpfulll staff, excellent breakfast
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.
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, 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 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.
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
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.
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.
The service is good
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.
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
> 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...
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.
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!
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.
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.
Great design. Well run. Location. Very hard bed.
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.
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.
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 view from the balcony is breathtaking and the staff extremely polite and helpful.Ideal for relaxation, away from crowds and noise.
Ostria is located outside of the main town just by bus stop 16. The buses run frequently and we certainly felt more relaxed on this form of transport than the hair raising speed of the local taxi drivers. The hotel is spotless with clean bedding and towels every other day. The grounds are beautifully maintained with an excellent pool area. Most mornings we had the pool to ourselves as the others guests headed off to the beach instead. A great, relaxed place to stay. We would highly recommend it.
The cleanliness it was daily in my room, the staff is very friendly,and the location of hotel is very good. Nothing! Everything it was very good!
We had a wonderful time at Ostria Hotel. Everyone there was so helpful and friendly. Very convenient location.
Our room was spacious with a nice veranda that looked into the garden. The swimming pool was nice and clean. Friendly and polite staff. The location was ok,about 10-15 min ride from the center (mainly because the roads in Skiathos are full of bends) and about 10 min from Koukounaries beach. The towels were changed once during our 4 days stay.
we have been coming to the ostria for years and have no complaints at all we always enjoy our holidays there no
very nice quiet, garden small family hotel. great bbq nite. very friendly people. located very close to everything. enjoyed our stay
Our hosts are charming.
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
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.
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.
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
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
Mostly beach food and quite nights out The steps were. Very scary do not recommend heals!
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.
The guys were excellent..Excellent chioce!
It was great location with good facilities very clean and good services staff was polite and helpfull all round great place to stay
fantastic view and very friendly personnel at the reception, white view restaurant and at the beach bar. poor facilities for 5 star hotel, tennis court was really bad,none activities for children, there was a smell in the bathroom from canalization, very expensive for what it offers, we had to pay even for our sunbeds on the beach.
It has superb environment and the view from the hotel is really great! Also the buffet in the morning was very good and the stuff helpful while replenishing the buffet orderly. Very poor/old looking rooms on the first and second floors. Although spacious they need to be renovated. Also they do not clean well the rooms. We found trash and pair of glasses from the previous couple. The personnel in the restaurants and shop were very nice unlike the bitter woman at the reception. She must be changed asap! It is a ptty as the male receptionists (Niko for example) were nice and helpful while the sour and bitter woman was very unfriendly and made you feel bad about even asking a question! Management needs to take this seriously into account as we discussed that with 3 other hotel residents that had similar or worse opinion.
First of all it's located in a beautiful place and it has a splendid view over the sea and over the famous Koukounaries beach, second it's located outside the town so the air it's more breathable in the night and it's quiet. Sorry to say but a have a lot of discontents, the hotel's lobby and hallways looked old and fusty, the gray carpet on the hallways had ugly staines, the rooms were small, the aiconditioning made some noise all night long, we didn, t have a proper shower, the faucet was dirty, one of the bedside lamps didn't work and many other things wich don't mach with a 4 star hotel
We stayed in the superior room with koukounaries view an it was absolutely fantastic!! Unbeatable view with extream comefort and cleanlieness. I recomend staying in the modern refurbished rooms as eiven the corridor to the old rooms looks very unappealing and smelly. Breakfast was good too, loved the tsoureki! Only complaint would be that the shuttle bus never seemed to be avaliable to go into the town.
The leisure facilities were great and the view was brilliant. Also the hotel is located very close to two fabulous beaches. They have free shuttle buses to the beaches and to Skiathos Town (about a 30min drive) For a four star hotel the rooms are VERY basic and obviously built with the cheapest possible materials. The air-conditioning doesn't really work and the bathrooms are nasty!
excellent location,fantastic beach no free internet
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.
don't give the same breakfast every day.
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.
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 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
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.
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.
We enjoyed the location of the hotel, its facilities. Hotel staff was also very friendly. We hope to come back someday. Thank you!
Olga from the reception, she was so genuine kind and service minded!
location close to the town center but not exactly in the center is a perfect compromise through amenities,useful tips and relax.
The staff were extremely accomodating
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.
Very polite and helpful staff. Good breakfast.
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.
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
The location is excellent, the breakfast provided is one of the best we've seen, the staff is quite friendly.Free internet connection. Small rooms, relatively expensive for what it offers. When we asked for an anti-mosquito system which is essential the hotel did not have one. The room has very few electrical sockets.
Wonderfully polite staff, good breakfast buffet. Nothing, all staff seemed well trained and excellent in service
Excellent location, friendly staff,
the position...it's very close to kokounaries beach, one of the nicest in skiatos and in a quiet area of the island.the rooms are vey nice and coloured and cleaned. there a big garden with a swimming pool and along all the day you can hear birds singing. the air conditioned...in the room it was always switched on and if you didn't want it you had to let the balcony open.in the morning sometime happened that there was no hot water in the bathroom.a pity...considering that there was a very big and confortable shower.
The atmostphere was perfect amidst large grounds and the room design was excellent. Very short walk to a great beach and just as short to restaurants and supermarket. Also great to mountain bike or drive to beautiful more secluded beaches. No
The staff were very helpfull and friendly. a member of staff escorted us to our accomodation and showed us how to work the lights and A.C. etc. We received very personal attention. They recommended where we could eat as it was evening when we arrived. The grounds and pool area were immaculate and pool sunbeds were very comfortable. The room cleaning service was excellent. Very comfortable accomod We had no complaints of any kind.
The location and the facilities were charming. Does not got a sea view.
The staff were brilliant - very friendly personal service. Very helpful - though sometimes a bit slow at seeing that we were trying to get their attentionby the pool but it didn't matter - the rooms was very nicely appointed. We were sad to leave as we had had a delightful sejour there. The first room we were shown had a roof which if one was sitting on the balcony obscured the view of the sea - we paid 50€ per day extra to get a better view - the room had a jacuzzi so we did get something extra
The lovely bar and the decor
It's in the middle of the Skiathos town. Breakfast was every day the same.
spacious room and good location no
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
discreetly managed no
The hotel is comfortable, clean, well serviced. The location is superb.
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.
Friendly ,stress free
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)
