Having also just returned from these appartments we also had a wonderful week on Skiathos.
We would def go back to these appartments. Now for the nitty gritty.
The kitchen equipment in appartment 109 was very scarce. I did ask for a bread knife, a plug or washing up bowl and a bin for kitchen area. None of which were available. So this appartment would be bad for some one who thought they wanted to cook and make meals etc.
We used the large sauce pan for washing up and left food peelings etc on a plate and the cleaners disposed of each day. I did not want to put this in the toilet bin with loo paper!!! Also I did not want to use a plastic bag as a bin each day in these eco friendly times. (Greece has just started recycling cans and plastic bottles so there is a start for all those who have swam next to lots of plastic on previous holidays in Greece)
Asked for a room away from bar and not ground level. We got a room away from bar and on ground floor. But this was fine. Room 109 was quiet and small compared to others I discovered, but had size ok for the 2 of us. Double bed, very strange cooker! But we never used it.
3 mugs, two cereal bowls, 4 plates a sharpe knife and a cork screw. bread board friut wicker bowl. Kettle. A very LARGE cooking pan, (our washing up bowl) a frying pan. 2 glasses I think maybe 3.
No can opener etc. Glass bowl casserloe dish etc for use in fridge etc. Cooker was really a strange looking hot plate!
The pool could have done with better filtration and cleaning on the sides,( I am a serious swimmer so know my pools). This was a nice size dip pool and ok for kids and cooling off. Could do with a shower to shower before entering. The pool appeared green and when the side tiles were rubbed were found to be covered in sun tan oil . Water not dirty but better cleaning or more often was needed.
You want me to be honest don't you!
Location for the bus route excellent (Stop 15) and we also walked into town. Road a bit dodgey as no pavements and would not do with children but perfectly possible and can stop off at various beaches and walks etc. Plenty to do. Walked around peninsula from bus stop 12 to 13. Beach near stop 25 is good and 10 mins away taverna and quiet and sun all day with parasols and beds etc. Boats trips good. Island hopping and sea and sun excursions good.
Snacks at appartments good. Staff lovey, owners would wave dailey and greet, answer questions. Rooms, linen very clean. Perfect for quiet holiday. Bar area nice and all guests chatted dailey to eachother. Quizz night good and very good value for BBQ. Fun.
Supermarket very close down the lane 2mins walk. Stocked everything you would want. Very freindly.
Barmaid very nice. Good selection of holiday reads/swaps. lots of drinks and bar snacks for lunch.
Cosmos rep will give you a discount sheet for various bars/restaurants etc . Very good. recommend Jimmys Taverna at bus stop 16, along the road and less than 10 mins walk-we walked it each time we went. Easy in heels. Good idea to take a torch with you for dark road and so cars can see you. Lots of tavernas at stop 16.
Bus trip cost from stop 1 to 16 Euros 1.60. from 16 to 26 Euro 1.60. Pay each time you get off and no return tickets. So if going to 26, get on at stop 16 . Buses packed coming back from town in afternoon and also from the beach. hence we walked one day!!! Lots of taxis.
Sun beds on beach and brooly Euros 8.00 on all beaches.
Shops in Skiathos good. Lots of restaurants, tavrenas and normal tourist things. Jewellery shops good most with discounts and one with 30% off.
So all in all very good holiday. Sun was shining. We didn't want to eat in our room only, on,y had for fruit and yogurt for breakfast and were at beach all day. So non of the little things above effected us. But nice to be aware of before you go in case you want to bring plug etc or ask not to have room 109. Although it was cosy and patio secluded!!!
