My wife and I were on a 5-day vacation on 9/19 at the 5-star Hotel Alvio Skiatos in Greece. The hotel has 3 living areas and we stayed in the Elioi Axenia area, we preferred it for comfort and proximity to the dining room and privacy, as well as the first floor was an almost private pool and the room was excellent. Elevators to drop off to a stunning private beach of the hotel and the service provided at the excellent and excellent beach and almost free of charge. The level of service in all areas of the hotel was courteous, matter-of-fact, and the hotel staff seemed to be doing everything and beyond for the benefit of hotel guests. We are staying at the hotel only for breakfast and it should be noted that breakfast was rich and it was an everyday experience to have breakfast in such a good restaurant that its wonderful location at the most beautiful vantage point in the hotel area towards the sea, forest and island. It should also be noted that the problem of bees that was in the area was probably because we did not encounter bees. One drawback might be that the hotel is a 20 or 25 minute taxi ride away from the Old Town and this September, a couple in the taxi about 20 euros and 20 euros more back so you have to take the expense of course. We preferred to travel during the entire vacation with a lovely taxi driver named Hotus who actually helped us very much with guidance and helpful advice and was very kind. In the Old City there are good taverns, good restaurants and nice shops, especially in the evening lively and happy atmosphere. September weather was excellent and most of the time we were short and only in the evening with a light long. We would recommend Marianna Jewelry Store with the lovely Helena management, the store is in the center of the alleyways and shops in the Old City And we would also recommend the Kosciax Grill House close to a jewelry store, a restaurant with great food, good service and an inexpensive price. Mobile Hutus Ceremonies: 30 6977741581 Mobile Helena: 6984 336 655 In any case and despite the hotel's proximity to the Old City, its benefits and the level of service and all the good things we went through at the hotel, made us realize and see where there is no such hotel in Sciatus and will do everything to come back to the hotel again.
An Absolute Dream!!!
The most beautiful decor of any place I’ve been to. 87% sure of that. Literally would give my first born to have a home this beautiful. You were an absolute dream. I hope to come back one day. It was an extravagant and epic trip!
Back to the drawing board
With the exception of Stavros, the rest of the staff were terrible. We were part of the Thomas Cook debacle and were wrongfully told just before departure that our flight had been cancelled. To top this we had a heated debate with both the receptionist and the driver on airport transport which had previously been agreed. Although the hotel is perfectly situated in Koukounaries, the service is far from luxury. Problems such as consistently cold cooked food at breakfast, wet cushions on sun beds, unresolved leaking roof in room and no beach towels available after a rainy morning. Staff apparently think that if it rains in the morning then people won’t want to use the beach or beach bars/facilities all day!
Suites were great and well organized beds very comfortable and mini bar was always full Jacuzzi was very nice and the view from the balcony was amazing. Breakfast was very nice with great selection. Beach was steps away from Ampelakia beach with very nice service . The golf carts were very useful for transportation anywhere around the resort. The only negative thing was the tavern we went wasn’t what we expected quite expensive and the food wasn’t great at all but pricey !!
A week in paradise
The Elivi in Skiathos is without doubt one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The rooms in the Nest which overlook the beautiful Banana Beach are stunning. The whole ambiance of the hotel is perfect. The staff have looked after us so well. It’s like being in the Elivi family but even more special because we have been given the space to be on holiday to enjoy the amazing surroundings. We are so near to Skiathos itself so it’s an easy trip into town. We have travelled all over the world but can honestly say this is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The attention to detail is “second to none”
