Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 July 2017

Just back from a week at the Dafni.It is certainly not a hotel but self catering apartments. We were lucky to get room no. 15 which was a spacious apartment with good sea views. Would not have liked to be on the ground floor at the side on the footpath. I assume from the previous posts that Dafni owns this place. We saw her almost every day around the place but she didn't acknowledge us despite booking us in upon our arrival. Beach bar was ok. Wouldn't book again.

Room Tip: avoid ground floor on the path next to the hotel

Best beach bar on Megali Ammos. Chill music, great coctails, quality coffee, place where you will have friendly and generous reception by the staff. Amazing setting right next to the beach. Warm recommendation.

As a Greek stating in Oslo made a reservation here thought it was a small luxury hotel ! Well was not ! Too expensive ! The bar too ! They also recommend a small tavern on the same beach mama something ! Medium food and bad service ! The rooms are fine but not for thus value ! Many mosquitos and not polite owner at all

Stayed as a couple 10th - 24th Aug.
Emailed 3 times in advance to request sea view but didnt receive a reply at all. When we arrived there was nobody on reception as proved the case for most of the holiday. Finally found someone but our room wasn't ready. Luggage left outside of hotel in street.When we eventually got into our room we discovered that we were in the very back of the hotel which was very disappointing. The room was nice enough (13) but the outside was dismal, no grass only dirt and it was unkempt with an unraveled hose pipe dumped outside doors which remained there for the duration. Didn't use kitchen apart from fridge and kettle.
Housekeeping:
Sheets only changed once a week and towels every 3 days, 4 days on one occasion. One day we returned to find front door and patio doors had been left wide open by cleaners but it was clean.
Beach bar:
Dafni's son seems to be in charge here and uses it as a playground to get his friends round. Service is sour and slow. They don't do food at this "hotel". It is smart and looks lovely but not many people spent time here so it felt flat. One evening he had a shouting match with someone who was on an upstairs balcony!
Beach:
€8 for 2 sun beds and parasol but not always easy to obtain, had to resort to putting towels out. We usually went outside the Swell Bar and used their facilities. Food and drink here was really good. Service amazing and you can use their wifi. Water beautiful and clear.
Wifi :
Patchy at best didn't work at all some days.
Reception:
Occasionally manned for 20/30 minutes in the morning. Spotted Dafni on a sunbed on the beach one morning!
Check out:
We didn't. Just left the key on the empty reception desk and walked out. No goodbye or thank you. Luggage had to be left in street outside again for collection.
Tip:
Hotel Mira Mare 2 doors is fantastic. Go there. Food, drinks, service, wifi, sunbeds. Everything was brilliant there. And the manager even said goodbye to us as we walked to the bus stop on our final morning!
Overall:
Location great, lovely walk into town through little alleyways. Megali Ammos itself has nice beach and lots of great tavernas. We will return but to a different hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid number 13

We love this Bar, we go for a lunch time drink and also in the evening on our walk along the beach to Skiathos town.
The service is the best of any bar on the island and the music gives the bar a great atmosphere.
pop in and have a drink, you'll be happy you did
