A basic Greek 2* at a 2* price. A wonderful value option set in the most gorgeous flower and fruit tree filled gardens. The rooms, although basic are comfy and cleaned daily. We didnt want for anything really and the bargin price of the hotel made our stay even sweeter! Breakfast - included- is standard Greek style but totally fine and when you are eating on the lovely terrace overlooking the sea you wouldnt want to be anywhere else in the world.
The pool was nice and clean and had a small seperate childrens section. There were lots of sunbeds.
Staff were friendly and helpful and when had a wonderful stay. I can honestly say that if I returned to Skala we wouldnt stay anywhere else- it is certainly in the best location of any of the hotels- 5 mins from the Village centre.

Well if we were apprehensive about this hotel our fears were dispelled as soon as the coach stopped outside.

The first thing you see is the taverna tables at the front with the " daily special board " and then it hits you the front gardens are full of flowering shrubs and plants with well kept lawns, alongside is the pool bar which has a large flowering Hebes which now acts as a roof for the outside part of the bar.

We were then shown to reception by our rep where we were welcomed with a complimentary drink while we booked in.

Upon checking into our room we were pleased to see we had a fridge, telephone, hairdryer, telephone and mossie net so you needed only to shut the shutters at night and not the whole doors. As it was late evening when we arrived we didn`t bother to eat just a couple of drinks and off to bed to see what the following day would bring.

Early next morning we opened the doors and we were surprised to see that from the terrace we had well maintained lawns with Lime, lemon and orange trees which we could reach out and touch. Having had breakfasts on other islands we thought we knew what to expect how wrong can you be. Self service breakfast with a a selection of fruit juices, fresh water melon, cereal, bread, (which you can toast if you wish) ham, cheese and selection of jams, marmalades, tea and coffee. You can keep going back for more if you wish. You can order bacon and eggs for 3 euros ( we had this one morning it was delicous ) or you can have full english fry for 5 euros. The wasps are about but they are nothing to worry about as long as you don`t upset them.

The pool is well maintained and clean with a large amount of loungers and parasols so no need to reserve here, well, not during September anyway.

Tara Beach has it`s own loungers and parasols on the beach opposite the hotel which cost 6 euros per day. We used these on many a day.

All the rooms are cleaned daily and bins emptied, linen and towels are changed twice weekly.

This hotel has exceeded our wildest expectations in terms of Greek ones and we are already planning next years visit to this hotel.

Our thanks and warm wishes to Nick and all of his staff especially Petros and Violetta.

Enjoy your winter break you all deserve it.
