Traditional good looks and stunning sea views go hand in hand at this peaceful, hillside retreat.
Surrounded by pine trees and flowers, The Skiathos Blu has a hilltop position providing perfect vistas of Janeira Bay from most vantage points.
There’s a stairway with 350 steps that lead down to Tzaneria beach, where you'll find a bar* and taverna*. This is also the launching point for water taxi rides to Skiathos Town, which is around 10 minutes away.

Travelled with my partner & 2 friends. Check in was easy, we requested 2 bungalows relatively close together, and they happily obliged our request. Following check in you are greeted by the general manager with a glass of bubbly and invited to enjoy the views on the terrace. I am pregnant and they bought me a glass of orange juice which was a nice touch. Initial Impressions of main hotel were great. Inside It was exactly as the pictures show on the internet after a recent refurb. Clean and spacious. And outside gardens and area kept beautifully maintained. We were in bungalows 86 & 87. A short walk down(about 50 steps) from main hotel. There were staff there to assist with luggage to the rooms. Our bungalows had been recently refurbed. They were cool, light and spacious with a small balcony with table and 2 chairs and view of the sea through trees. Room was Very minimal, but with digital a/c, a mini fridge, a small kettle, glasses, and some mini toiletries. Perfect for us. Rooms were cleaned and beds made daily. Towels changed either every day, or every other day. Restaurant staff were fantastic. From the guys cooking, to the staff topping up and keeping salads/fruits tidy, to the waiting staff. They were polite, friendly and attentive, an asset to the hotel. The general manager was also visible every day, and almost always at dinner time, which was nice to see. The food was great. Breakfast had a great variety from continental to cooked breakfast, fruits, yoghurts and compotes etc. I asked for an egg to be cooked every morning and flipped so not so runny due to being pregnant. It was never too much trouble. Constantina served tea and coffee every morning and would never let your cup go empty for long!!! There was a great selection of fresh salads, cheeses, breads and fruits at every evening meal. And something was cooked fresh every single night on the grill. We planned to eat out several times, but the food was so good we ate out just once!! We didn't spend much time around the pool as we hired quads and spent the week exploring and beach hopping. But was quite nice in the late afternoon to get back and sit on the deck chairs in the slightly shaded areas. The pool was a very pleasant temperature and we enjoyed a dip or 2. Pool towels are available free of charge at reception, and returned daily. To address the issue of steps.. yes, if you are staying in the bungalows you cannot escape the steps. However the lift is working and if you catch it at the right time is a life saver. I had to walk the whole lot from bottom to top twice at 5 and a half months pregnant because the lift stops working at 11pm, and we had been enjoying a drink at the beach restaurant. But I managed!!! The fact is the hotel is in a beautiful hill top setting and you cannot have it all!! Many other hotels that are situated high up don't have the option of a lift, so at least it is an option!! If you aren't able to do the steps just leave yourself plenty of time to call and wait for the lift as it can take some time depending on where abouts on the line it is and which other stops have called for it. (There are 5 stops altogether) I was more than happy with this hotel. It's location was perfect for us as we wanted to explore the whole island and it's pretty much in the middle. I would recommend this hotel and be happy to return. It was great value for money More
karla Jayne B,
Had a great time at the skiathos blu stayed in a bungalow at the top which was lovely. Don't let the steps put you off as the lift is up and running. It as fantastic views while eating breakfast and dinner.Food could have been warmer and a little bit more fresh fruit would have been nice but otherwise ok .you can get into town by water taxi or bus lovely place to go for a change .More
Gets the basics right
Stayed in one of the refurbed bungalow rooms which was spacious and spotlessly clean. Fresh towels daily with an excellent shower - hot water all day and really good pressure. This is a relatively small hotel and so does not have the huge buffets offered by the large resort hotels - which i hate by the way as are like cattle market! But selection is still good and is mainly Greek with different carvary roast available daily and variety of dishes which always looked appetising. Head chef presided over kitchen staff like a hawk and restaurant staff were pleasant and attentive. All in all very enjoyable dining experience sat out on terrace. Hotel never seemed crowded with plenty of space around pool and at dinner. Hotel has lift to beach and a shuttle service which help with all those steps but you cannot get away from them completely so be warned! Hotel lacks a few finer touches - no pool towels provided, no gym facilities which you could expect in a 4 star, pool bar ran out of diet coke and had limited selection generally but overall cannot fault for the price paid - however if I had paid full brochure price would have expected a bit more. One last thing - water taxi into Skiathos town is more pleasant way to get there but buses are frequent and cheap - either way worth the trip as lovely little town and harbour. More
not a platinium hotel as advertised
the platinum sign has been removed but do not be put off this is a really lovley hotel with very welcoming staff and management the food is excellent and they try to mix it up each day a good variety is offered to meet all tastes the rooms are clean bedding changed every other day if you want tea or coffee buy some as they do not supply this after the first day they also own the resterant on the beech front and the beech is picture postcard if you get the chance rent a self drive boat for the day this allows you to visit all the beeches and even go across to the other island only 100 euros use the water TAXI IS CHEAP AND COOL RATHER THAN A STUFFY BUS to get to skiathos townMore

Trip to Skiathos
Had an amazing holiday in Skiathos, lovely quiet island with easy access to several beaches and neighbouring islands. Hotel was clean and beautifully decorated, only downside we stayed in one of the bottom bungalows closest to the beach so we had quite a trek up to the main building but there is a lift and a little mini bus to take you up if you don't want to tackle the stairs. Would recommend and would return in a heartbeatMore
