Just returned from 4 nights here (mini break wish we had longer). Lovely hotel, perfect location, short walk to 2 lovely perfectly clean beaches with crystal clear water, both beaches have lovely bars with restaurants and regular water taxis to Skiathos town costing 4 Euros per person. Close resturant Johnnys 2 min away is really lovely, staff great too. Super market very close has pretty much everything. Bus stop close by. Fridge in room. Agree beds bit hard but ok. Staff in hotel lovely. Room clean - fresh towels daily. Pool area nice, but we spent most of our time at the beaches. Agree hotel needs a few tiny details sorting but they are working on it. All in all a really amazing break - would return! Thank you Greece you never disappoint!

We arrived & was dropped off at the main road by coach as no direct access by coach to this Hotel pleasant
staff at reception your cases arrive by small van about 10 minutes after you . The room overlooking the sea view was basic, rather hard beds but plenty of draws for your clothes bathroom o.k. tiled flooring through out . The pool was lovely relaxing area a big Plus for this place ! sunbeds with a shady area or two nice happy bar staff nice snacks from here good food, at good prices , The surrounding area is wonderful, just a short walk to the beaches
There is a hairdryer in the bathroom here , but no tea or coffee making facilities in the room. It states Spa in the brochure but really its just massage in a room there is however a small gym area .

We have tried several hotels and, for our last dozen visits, have homed in on the Kanapitsa Mare. The location is excellent - near the beach for the water taxi to Skiathos Town, a short walk on the level to the road for the bus, several excellent tavernas within walking distance. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. Many pleasant days were spent around the good-sized pool, with magnificent views over the Aegean. Of course, there are quirky Greek features - difficulty operating the door key and obtaining constant hot water for showers! But the hotel suits us - we're not paying for a restaurant, beauty salons, hair dressers etc which we don't need. We would, therefore, recommend it.

After booking the Kanapitsa Mare I saw some really bad reviews and so was not sure what to expect when we arrived. On arrival,the reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are a little tired and could do with up dating, however for what we paid I have no complaints. We had a sea view,air conditioning and a fairly modern bathroom. The hotel is a very short walk from Nostros beach, which is now the place for the young trendy people to meet up, and also,where the taxi boat leaves to go to Skiathos town. For the money we paid, I have no real complaints about this hotel - we lost hot water a few times (but that's expected) and the pillows weren't great,

Described as small and friendly in Tui's brochure I would add Relaxing, Welcoming and Wonderful. Just back after a fabulous week and wow we had fun. Check in easy,Room as we like large and spacious with a wonderful large Queen size bed plenty of storage good décor. Music system, flat screen TV and a fridge, which is very useful, and a large balcony with incredible views Bathroom well organised with two showers and bath towels changed everyday what more could you want ..we did book superior deluxe and it was well worth it. Plenty of stairs but two lifts to help.
Breakfasts more than ok with a good selection each day ..the omelette was delightful tea coffee and orange juice to name just three all enjoyed at a leisurely pace no rush what so ever, probably due for a better toaster and I think this is being sorted soon.
Staff are lovely nothing to much trouble and all speak as you meet them. The Bartender is an absolute star, we spent most evenings in his company enjoying fabulous conversation and drinking beer he even let us help chose the music selections which is low key and not in your face. Pool area just right and not over crowded and very clean throughout as was the whole Hotel.
There's four very good eating places within walking distance all serving quite high end food with a supermarket close too. Buses not far away and a water taxi into town too times for these can be seen in the reception. All in all a fabulous break we really enjoyed our time there and hopefully will return ..all the negative comments you read totally disappear once there so no problems, its a well run Family owned hotel which is updating itself as they can and we wish them well in that area. Was really nice to speak to the manager on our check out and shake his hand staff are low key and not always to be seen unless you need them then they react as expected.

Room Tip: seems all have sea views and higher floors are better we booked superior deluxe and glad we did
