    Apart from Greek ferries...nothing

    A Greek ferry strike re organised our Pelion holiday so we booked the Paradise Hotel last minute, it proved to be an excellent choice. The family (father and 2 brothers) gave us a very warm welcome and were chatty and friendly throughout our short stay. Meals were served on the sunny terrace with stunning views lots of choice and delicious. The pool is extra long so you can get a decent swim and there are lots of places to sit and relax in both sun and shade. The free bus into town is a bonus. Would definitely recommend this friendly comfortable hotel.

    Only thing which wasn't quite enjoyable were mosqitoes. There were lot of them almost every night and two times we could not sleep and although we used repellant, they were still there.

    The hotel is lovely and picturesque, situated on one of many Skiathos hills. The view from the room was stunning. Everybody was nice and made our stay very pleasant. Breakfast was good but it was the same every day so I would recommend changing it a little bit from time to time (maybe include local cuisine?) Rooms were very clean. The pool looked nice but we did not have time to use it because Skiathos has so many nice beaches.

    As always there was one downside you MUST be aware that there are a lot of stairs and no lift, although, Dimitri and Kostas are fabulous in that they will always carry your bags and it is no effort for them to do so. Thank you.

    In one word 'everything'. This is one of the best hotels that we have stayed in. From collecting us at the airport Kostas was an exemplary host along with his brother Dimitri and their mum and dad and not forgetting Dimitri's children. We were offered different rooms with no pressure to chose - a lovely touch. The room was immaculate and was cleaned everyday. There is a fridge in the room - a lovely idea. A big plus the hairdryer is next to a large mirror in the room. The restaurant is brilliant breakfast was very good, not too much choice but what you had was excellent and home made. Now dinner was something else Anastasia is an amazing cook and the food was hot, fresh and delicious. No wonder the restaurant has such a fabulous name all over the island. We ate there five out of seven nights. The pool area is beautiful plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas and also a bar with ice creams etc. Again this area was immaculate and no loud music - bliss. The walk to the beach is about 15 minutes but it is a very steep walk and you can walk into Skiathos town quite easily. We will definately be going back. A great big thank you to all of the family.

    Everything was fabulous so nothing bad to say about the hotel and its staff. My only advice about the destination is watch out for wasps! It's the same all over the island and not much you can do so nothing to do with the hotel. They only seemed to be attracted to me though - so weird! So I'd recommend getting some incense sticks or something to repel them.

    The food in the hotel was wonderful, the staff were super friendly and it's a wonderful family run place. The rooms are decent size - basic but all you need and air con. The pool is great very clean and very peaceful, the sunbeds are proper ones with mattress so super comfy. The only downside is it isn't near to the town (walking wise) but everything is a 10 minute taxi ride away. Or Vassilas beach is 5 mins in taxi (but it's walkable if you can manage hills). But if you didn't want to you honestly wouldn't have to leave the hotel - it has everything you need pool & good food. The also do a shuttle bus down the the town which is handy. They looked after my mum like she was family whilst I was off at work so it was just so fantastic. We had also asked for a room lower ground as she isn't good with steps and they accommodated us wonderfully. Would definitely come back and stay here. It's authentic Greece!!! The food served was honestly the best we had all holiday. I can't wait to go back - and it's rare I go back to the same place twice. It was just so lovely! Next time for longer that's for sure!

    I didn't expect such a nice hotel, when i saw it on booking.com. It's even better than on the pictures. Since it's located on a hill, you have a wonderful view over the island, you see very beautiful sunsets. The location to me is far better than living in the city! It's run by a family, everyone is very friendly and helpful. Also the food there is pretty good! I recommend it.

    If we had stayed longer we would have wanted a car.

    The staff were warm and welcoming, with a lovely sense of humour, making us feel instantly at home. After a hot journey they offered us a choice of a cool or sunny room. The pool was fabulous and a great size. The breakfast was the best we had all holiday. Massive pile of books to choose from. We ate there in the evening and the food was excellent, as was the wine, and good value. Location was quiet and peaceful. We certainly hope to go back.

    The number of guests who return to paradise hotel year on year speaks for it's self. This charming family run hotel provides a high quality service with clean rooms, great facilities and outstanding food. Thanks to Costas, dimitries and the rest of the family, this is delivered in a way which makes every guest feel as though they are at home. The location is great, with excellent uninterrupted sea views or mountain views on the other side.The hotel is 8 mins from skiathos town (you wouldn't want to be much closer) and they provide a free shuttle between the two at 10, 1, 4, 7 and 11. If for whatever reason you wanted to go outside these times, it's only a 10 minute walk down the hill to the bus route which covers the whole South of the island. Taxis are also suprisingly cheap even if you fancy staying out past 11pm in the town. The on site restaurant serves delicious home made greek food from fresh ingredients - competitive with anything else on the island. The bar is open till late, always staffed and reasonably priced. They also assisted us in finding car hire for a reasonable price, and recommended some lesser known beaches to visit. Wifi is good throughout - can stream YouTube. Breakfast is diverse and tasty. We spent a total of 12 days here, and will definitely be returning. Skiathos is a very accessible Island with plenty to see and do. I cannot think of a better way to see the island than staying in paradise hotel.
