Deal! Shame I'm working, plus my passport expired and that will cost more than this hol!

Not really the greatest of reviews for the accomodation:
Basic, clean accommodation but with a number of problems:
1. The toilet stopcock was faulty so it refilled, noisily, all night.
2. The pool was frequently unavailable just when the children wanted to use it due to ‘cleaning.’
3. The landlady shouted orders at guests from the courtyard to turn lights off, etc. She might be described as a bossy old battleaxe.
4. The maid refused to wait outside the room, or do another room, while I was taking a nap, but barged in to do her clean then and there.
5. The room flooded.
6. There was no air conditioning, which should be standard nowadays.
7. The owners’ family held frequent noisy and abusive arguments, shouting at full volume across the courtyard.
8. Assuming guests didn’t speak Greek, the owners spoke of guests in, shall we say, unflattering terms, also at the top of their lungs.
9. Light bulbs in common areas, which were dark, tiled and thus slippery, mysteriously failed in twos and weren’t changed when guests requested.
10. The Olympic representative immediately sided with the owners in every matter, rather than REPRESENTING the paying customer, i.e., the guest.
11. The plumbing was not earthed sufficiently, so if you put your hand under a running tap while the cooker was on, you got a shock. Coupled with a damp floor, this could be dangerous (see point 5).
12. There was no shower curtain, so stuff in the shower room tended to get wet.

Skiathos is great. Go there, enjoy the beaches—from the exclusive, to the party, to the deserted—but don’t stay at Paschalis studios.

Can't find it??



Either can I - OP, can you provide a direct link or has this offer now expired? Thanks.

cheap

dunno why people moan, staying in travel lodge cost about £60 for 1 night.

Hotels should be just for sleeping, go out and explore the country !

Not showing on website

maprel

you get what you pay for. for the money i think its worth it



You are very easily pleased.

you dont have to stop at that hotel !! just use the flights and transfer and stop somewhere else !

Bargain! use the hotel as a base and go explore for a bargain 80 quid! If i wasnt going away in 5 weeks I would be seriously looking at going

just to add - Im only finding Demetris studios available - trip advisor rating are alot better on that hotel so perhaps a better deal...

If you want to go to Skiathos, you can do a lot worse than check out Elizabeth Studios. Not immaculate, but they're pretty friendly, the venue is good, with a nice enough bar and good pool, near to some restaurants but in a quiet area - late buses to Skiathos town though. I enjoyed myself well enough there though!

lovely island.....kookinaries is v nice as are the little beaches at that end of the island. One thing that they didn't tell us though when we went was that when you leave....you have to land on the mainland to refuel which can mean a long wait on the tarmac as the runway is too short to take off with a full tank?????? We then had to change seats as well which was a bit chaotic as well cos the cabin crew wanted all the overhead luggage accounted for and to follow you to your new seat.

well worth 80pp - if i didn't have kids i'd take a pop up tent and kip on the beach

im going
whos coming :d i choose same dates but different hotel with better reviews acc very good ones
demetris studios
a m8 of mine is coming also

Is this still on as I can't find it!

Who cares what the review is like Skiathos is a fabulous island. You only sleep there anyway. Who needs a pool when you have some of the best beaches in the world on Skiathios!

You might do more than just sleep in your room. I stayed at the Panorama in Koukounaries a few years ago in May. It sheeted it down for 4 of the 7 days I was there. Learnt my lesson from that - never stay in just a beach resort - always better off in the town.

I would re-phrase that as some of the most over-rated beaches in the world.

However, not a bad deal for the price - Skiathos town has my thumbs up.


Go there every year....Ariadni Studios


Use this for the flights if you can
