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.
The staff treated us more like friends than guests. A lovely small hotel in a good location.
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.
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.
location,clean,friendly staff couldn't do enough for us.would go back anytime. breakfast was ok but not enough choice of hot food.
Friendly staff clean rooms, fantastic views and location Pool bar was not open but was due to open soon
Wonderfull view, friendly and helpfulll staff, excellent breakfast
Fantastic views, perfect location,outstanding rooms, friendly staff, lovely restaurant, great breakfast selection perfect holiday
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.
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.
> 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 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 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.
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 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, 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
It was great location with good facilities very clean and good services staff was polite and helpfull all round great place to stay
excellent location,fantastic beach no free internet
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.
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.
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.
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
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!
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.
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.
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.
Great design. Well run. Location. Very hard bed.
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 view from the balcony is breathtaking and the staff extremely polite and helpful.Ideal for relaxation, away from crowds and noise.
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.
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.
Wonderfully polite staff, good breakfast buffet. Nothing, all staff seemed well trained and excellent in service
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 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 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.
The location and the facilities were charming. Does not got a sea view.
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
Excellent location, friendly staff,
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.
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.
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
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
it was excellenet....one of the bets hotel i have ever gone....
The maisonette accommodation, the staff and warm reception; exceptional service and meeting our needs for early morning departure. The welcome phone call to tell about the beach with chairs, umbrella and towels waiting directly across the road. . Not applicable
Very friendly family run hotel. Superb service, good breakfast with home made Greece products. Absoluut nice decorated and very clean hotelrooms with magnificent view. Quiet area, (fishing village) lots of small restaurants wiht good food. Pebble beach with own sunbeds and umbrellas. The best accomodation we had in Greece ! none
the hotel was as good (in fact even better) as the pictures and the description on the site promised! It is a small, very cosy and pleasant hotel, the owners are very welcoming, hospitality and service are their priority. They really helped us out when we needed to book an early flight home, and cancel the flight when the circumstances in the family did change, so that we could continue our holidays. the owners have also a very nice bar at the village Pefki itself, we sure would recommend other travelers to visit the bar at the Galini Hotel. The boulevard and the beach are at walking distance from the hotel. The owners take great effort to keep the hotel, swimmingpool clean and tidy. In short: a great place to stay !!!
Nothing. There was no hot water in the bathroom. Water pressure was very bad. Personel was polite only until we have made complaint. The worst hotel I have ever booked.
The owners were so helpful and welcoming it was like being a home from home. The rooms were spacious and very clean. There was a good variety of food available for breakfast. Being able to use the bikes for a ride to the beach was great (the owners bought a child seat especially for our daughter) . Nothing.
It is very hard to put the studios in to a catergory because of the nature of the resort itself, it is however the perfect place to get away from it all and recharge your batteries. I would recommend that it is for those who have hired a car. It is located on quite a busy through road so traffic noise is a problem. The room however was perfect and far outweighed the noise! I would not hesitate to return.
I liked the quiet location and the abundance of greenery. The room was spacious and cool. There were also lots of towels. The swimming was lovely and well looked after. Yes, the wood outside needs oiling and painting. Also there were swallow nests on the balcony so there was a lot of bird faeces on the floor.
Modern design of room and large balcony. Lovely gardens Uncomfortable bed with wooden frame. Too far to walk to a restaurant
i like hotel staff something was smelling like sheet everywhere in the hotel.terrible!!
The peace and tranquility of the countryside, but with a shuttle bus to beach and town if you wanted hussle and bussle. Lovely pool and good food at reasonable prices Bedrooms could do with an update in decor. Lots of steps, not a good idea for those who battle with steps.
Nice location, beautiful view of the sea, spacious room. Staff are generally helpful and polite. The water used for the garden each afternoon stinks so badly it's impossible to sit at the balcony of your room for 2-3 hours every day. The air-conditioning system is archaic and noisy. You would expect someone from the hotel to pick you up on your arrival and not have to get a taxi.
The hotel staff was friendly and accomodating. Location is great and view is beautiful. Hotel is not luxurious nor modern, but absolulutely clean and very comfortable. Though breakfast was very complete and tasty, pool bar snacks were less than great (toast and coffee not good).
The family that run the hotel are very attentive to the needs of their guests and quick to respond. The hotel is very peaceful and clean. No
Liked the location and the friendliness of the staff. The bus that runs 6 times a day is a fantastic service. Enjoyed the pool area.
No Elevator and too many steps to go up with luggage to the rooms.
nothing decor very old fashioned and in need of updating. bed the most uncomfortable I have ever known. Staff were not helpful or pleasent
The terrace area is exceptionally beautiful and the service from the family run hotel was very personal. The food is also good. There is no air con until July. Should have a supplement. Walk to main road is too long/steep given hot climate so need to use use hotel bus/ jeep or taxi.
The swimming pool was ok and the entrance lobby not bad. 1. Location: Only accessible by car, and not possible to walk to the beach or anywhere else due to the very steep road. 2. Very unfriendly and hostile staff(mostly family members:father,mother and two sons). Always missed excursions due to wrong information given to us. 3. Shuttle Bus not very frequent, so had to use Taxis most of the time.4. Sheets not clean and towels were collected from the floor and put again on the rack(even still wet!) for the next day.
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!
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.
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 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 had a wonderful time at Ostria Hotel. Everyone there was so helpful and friendly. Very convenient location.
