Right on port. Close to bars, restaurants bus stops etc. Pool is lovely but lacks atmosphere. When we booked a year earlier Tui brochure said there was pool bar. Well there was but it’s not currently open. We stayed in room 409 for the first 4 nights - which is up two flights of stairs and had lovely view of Skopelos town side view. We asked for a change of room to be at front of hotel and then stayed in 105 for the rest of our fortnight break - had to pay a premium but was worth it to watch the world go by from the balcony. (Note there are only two rooms on front with a view as palm trees in way). Breakfast is Greek basic but fine although there’s no toaster. No tea and coffee facilities in room so take kettle if you want a cuppa. All rooms have fridges. Very clean hotel and staff work really hard. Plenty of clean towels etc. Typically Greek 2* no complaints other than lack of atmosphere. First and third pics are views from room 409. Second pic outside breakfast area. Fourth pic view from balcony room 105.
Lovely little getaway!

This hotel is a perfect base for exploring the island. It's clean, practical and pretty. The hotel sits right on the main street in Skopelos and is still a peaceful place. The pool area is clean and quiet, perfect for couples. Although, down side is that there is no pool bar for lunch. But plenty of cafes just outside your door. Also, the mosquitos are rife around the pool area so be careful. I was a little disappointed with the maid service as they would refold dirty towels, refuse to give clean glasses and would turn the air on off during the day and open the balcony doors (which let in the heat and bugs - not ideal after a day on the hot beach). Breakfast is very basic but does the job. Lovely coffee! The rooms are slightly dated but always clean. I would recommend a room overlooking the pool or garden as it's more quiet and you have a private balcony! All in all, I highly recommend this hotel. Its exactly what we hoped and more! Would return.
False advertising and rude staff.

The staff were rude and we were thrown out the pool at 7:40 when it closes at 8 or 9 (not too sure as it kept changing). Staff receptionist lady (reddish, brownish hair) was very rude and not nice as for the young man at reception was lovely and told us about the times of closing and told us 20mins before so we could get ready to go. As advertised it says there’s a pool bar, well where is the bar tender I hear you ask? I don’t know because the bar was closed and not even any signs to tell us why. Rooms were small and hard to open balcony door. Wasn’t satisfied and defo won’t come again.
Rude staff not as advertised

I stayed here with friends and family who were also staying in Skopelos. The location of the hotel is good. Right across from the Ferry Port. On arriving I was disappointed at the size of the room. It was really cramped and there wasn’t a great view from the balcony. I’m am on a gluten free diet due to medical reasons so all I could eat at breakfast was fruit. I took my own bread but was advised that there was no toaster so couldn’t have it. The pool area was nice and clean but lacked atmosphere. The pool bar as advertised was closed and when this was mentioned to the rep he said that it had been raised with the hotel. Drinks were available by walking round to reception but obviously not ideal. The pool opening times changed for 9am to 9pm to 10am to 8pm and the staff were waiting to put us out from 7.40 pacing until we left and one female member of staff asked us to move the loungers back to where they were! She was very rude on more than one occasion. Not what you want when spending a lot of money on a holiday. Overall I Wouldn't go back.

We have been to Skopelos several times now and stopped at several different hotels. This place has its good and not so good points. The obvious good point is its location for the town as you are almost on the harbour. As a result the majority of restaurants and tavernas and the bus service are within easy walking distance, unless you want to go up into the high town area. The transfer from the ferry is only 200 metres. It has a friendly set of staff who work very hard all day. The room we had was clean and recently re-furbished with good free air conditioning so no problem there. Towels changed every day bar Sundays. The breakfast was your usual basic Greek grub of cereals, cheese ham, salad, yogurt and honey and a few biscuits/cake. The coffee was good as well. It is a strange hotel as it reminds me of a large dolls house around the courtyard area. Very pretty with well kept gardens .The pool is large and clean and sunbeds were easily available any time of day. The only negative is that some rooms are with shared balconies but as we were with TUI for two weeks I suspect these rooms would be for short stay guests. Would I go back. definitely, but don't expect 4 star, it is a basic typical Greek style hotel but in the right place, especially if you have walking difficulties.
