Skiathos Palace Hotel details
The Skiathos Palace has it all – a stylish pool, good-looking bedrooms and a great location close to two beaches.
Skiathos Palace Hotel is on a pine-covered cliff, overlooking the bay of Koukounaries. The pool is set into a raised decking area to make the most of the views, and is surrounded by cushioned loungers and smart white parasols. There’s also a poolside bar with plenty of al fresco seating under a vine-clad pergola.
The main restaurant serves an American-style buffet breakfast, while dinner features à la carte choices and a buffet which includes traditional Greek dishes. For a meal with a view, there’s the White View rooftop restaurant. The menu takes its cue from a traditional Greek taverna, with grilled meats, local recipes and standout seafood.
Two of Skiathos’ best sandy beaches sit either side of the hotel. Koukounaries Beach is to the east – it’s the most famous beach on the island and is great for watersports. To the west is Maratha Beach. The hotel offers loungers and thatched parasols here, and has its own beach bar serving drinks, salads and fresh fruit. Both beaches can be accessed via steps from the hotel.
Rooms are simply furnished, with whitewashed walls, wooden furniture, and brightly coloured cushions. Executive rooms have recently been refurbished, and offer sleek bathrooms with luxury bath products and private verandas with loungers.
Skiathos Town is just 15 minutes’ drive away, and the hotel offers a courtesy bus service throughout the day.
