we stayed here from 5th may, found some of the local bars and eateries not open until evening, and bar on site only opened in afternoons but think that was because it was early in the season, no local buses running for maybe another week or so, but we enjoyed it here went on a couple of trips from TUI...

We stayed in Room 206 at The Big Village for 11 nights. Our room was large and light, with a lovely view of the pool and gardens and we could also see the sea. The room had aircon and a fridge and kettle etc. The bathroom had a nice shower and towels and bed linen were changed every 3 days.... More

We were a bit apprehensive about what to expect when we arrived after reading a previous review but our first impression was it's fine, Makis showed us to our room which although it was dated it was very large and looked clean. So we settled in to enjoy our holiday. As everyone says Makis does everything and helps with any... More

We stayed here as a family of 4 in a split level maisonette room. Firstly the rooms are huge, loads of space and they are in an excellent location but they really could do with a bit of maintenance and sprucing up.

We have been to Skala many times before but this was our first stay in the Big Village. We stayed in a second floor maisonette which was perfect for a family of 4, great sized room with fantastic views from the windows and balcony. Probably the best thing about the hotel is Makis, he is there pretty much 24 hours... More

We have been to the big village 5 times and always had a fantastic time until this year. We tried a few other islands but went back to the big village as it was always our favourite.
