If you’re looking for the perfect family holiday destination this summer, then look no further than the beautiful Greek island of Skiathos and particularly, the Skiathos Princess Hotel and Resort.

The Skiathos Princess Resort, located just 15 minutes from the airport, is set on one of Skiathos’ most breathtaking coastlines, with its alluring golden sands and turquoise waters.  It truly is a paradise on earth and the hotel’s beautifully landscaped gardens add to its charm. 

At the resort, there are plenty of activities and facilities for all of the family to enjoy.  Treat yourself to a massage or treatment at the Spa, cool off with a swim in the large outdoor pool or simply relax on the beach and soak up the Mediterranean sun.  Younger guests can enjoy one of the most well equipped crèches in the company of Zoe, or visit the outdoor play area, children’s pool or beach.  The hotel is also used as a yoga retreat; another testament to the beauty, peace and tranquility that can be found here.

When visiting the Skiathos Princess, we highly recommend paying that little bit extra and booking a family room with private garden, especially if you have very young children in pushchairs.  The ground floor rooms offer easy access to the beach, pool, bar, lounge and restaurant and there is no need to use any stairs.  If you opt for a Deluxe room with sea view, usually located on the 2nd and 3rd floor, you will find a few small steps en-route to your room, but the experience of waking up to such an amazing panorama is most definitely worth it.

The newly refurbished rooms and their respective bathrooms are spacious and facilities are very good.  Each room has a TV, Wi-fi (although you might need to pick up a booster from reception for better coverage), hairdryer, bathrobes, slippers, toiletries, free water in the minibar and air conditioning.  If you require a cot for your little one, this can be provided upon request.

As a resort, the Skiathos Princess offers bed & breakfast, half board and full board packages and you are free to choose what suits best.  The food is absolutely delicious and it was impressive that there was a plentiful buffet spread every breakfast and evening.  There is quite literally something for all taste buds.

The overall service is very impressive and the staff is very attentive, helpful, happy and welcoming, making you feel right at home.  The lady on reception was very smiley and approachable and answered any questions we had regarding the hotel.

All in all, the Skiathos Princess Hotel comes very highly recommended.
