After reading some reviews of the hotel we were slightly nervous of what we would find however we had a lovely 10 night stay. The room was very clean with fresh towels each day and the air conditioning and fridge were very welcome in the heat. The hotel is in a perfect position with a water taxi or bus only five minutes walk away. The staff were all very friendly and a credit to the hotel and hopefully we will return in the future

Needs lot of attention to detail as management very thin on the ground
Irena and her assistant very good as were the maids who kept the rooms immaculate
Very limited breakfast choice with Death Wish toaster that needs to be replaced
Bread too small to toast therefore you have to put fingers inside to retrieve
Missing out on no evening food after 5 or Ice cream freezer
Hotel seems very happy to remain a basic 3 star
WiFi also very weak

Dear guests
Thank you for staying with us.
Sorry the breakfast was not to your liking but it has been completely redesigned with many different choices each day.
The toaster dear guest has a pair of tongs exactly so that you do not need to put in your hands.
The hotel does not offer meals but snacks until 5.00 pm.
Best of wishes

Just returned from a brilliant week in Skiathos and the Kanapista Mare Hotel. We booked in February and had been worried by some of the negative reviews which we now think are completely unfounded, petty and to be honest just mean. The hotel is great - exactly what you would expect to find on a Greek island. The room was clean and comfortable although why travel to an island paradise and sit in a room? The pool a great alternative when you wanted a quick cool off and the short walk to the beach is a bit of an effort. The staff are lovely and really couldn’t be more helpful. But the main thing is the location - short walk to two great beaches, water taxi at the beach, 2 mins from the bus stop, tavernas across the road and at the beach plus a handy local grocer/supermarket a couple of doors down. The place is a peaceful oasis- if you’re after a party / rave hotel maybe not for you. If you want 5 star, ultramodern frankly don’t go to a Greek Island. And come on people is toast really that big a deal? Would recommend in a second

Fantastic one week stay. Rooms basic, very clean , great balcony , lovely large bed and the best pillows ever. Room cleaned and towels changed every day. Breakfast excellent with many choices. Pool area is large with plenty of beds and extra parasols available from behind the pool bar. All the staff are so smiley and helpful. Location is perfect for beaches and water taxis into Skiathos Town £4 euros each (15 minutes). Good restaurants close (recommend Johnny’s at bottom of hotel drive). Overall we had a wonderful week and would thoroughly recommend.

Just returned from a brilliant 9 night stay at this hotel. We upgraded and stayed in room 502 and woke every morning to a wonderful view of the bay. The whole place is very clean and you can see the effort that goes in to keeping up the standards. The staff are all friendly and the reception staff are very knowledgable and helpful. We had a couple of small plumbing issues that were sorted very quickly. A brand new flat screen TV was even delivered during our stay. The beach at the front is ok but busy and a bit trendy as already reported in other reviews. Kanapitsa beach is a short stroll away with a brilliant beach bar. Panos the manager is very helpful, friendly and concerned we had a good holiday. Bumped in to him off site and he still had time for a chat. How anybody can complain about this hotel is beyond me. Maybe they should pay a lot extra and stay at a 5 star hotel instead. It is fantastic value for money and we will be back. Highly recommend!
