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.
The hotel underwent a full renovation for summer 2016, including the rooms, restaurant, bar and reception. While still maintaining its Greek village style of traditional bungalows, it has a light and modern feel.

First week of the season
We visited in early may - the hotel had just opened. We really enjoyed our stay and thought the bungalow and hotel and grounds were all very nicely decorated and lots of space and wonderful views. The hotel was not full but was beginning to fill up as the week went on. There are lots of steps but my 73 Mother coped really well and if needed there was the mini bus that would drop and pick up from the bus stop/ beach at the bottom of the hill (although not sure how this works when the hotel is full!). Saying that we like swimming/ walking so we're not fazed by the steps but could be a problem for people with any mobility issues. Food was lovely and fresh - we were not used to doing half board as usually self cater but felt that they really worked hard to present a variety of food and lovely fresh salads etc. Pool was lovely and big and empty most of the time. Sue the Thompson rep was great and all in all a lovely last min break! More
Really loved the Skiathis Blu. Staff are friendly and helpful. Food is good too. You can tell the hotel has recently had a refurb and it's looking great. Considering we were some of the first guests in this season the staff were prepared and everything was set ready to go unlike some of the other places we've been too. And to top it off a lovely suprise from Sue and the hotel staff was waiting for me in the room when they found out it was my birthday! Safe to say i'm one happy birthday girl! More
Great, but unless you want to just lie by the pool you need a car.
Lovely staff, service and food. We had a room in the main building, which was very nice but not luxurious. The cottages looked like they needed attention so I would not recommend them. The Hotel is in a lovely location about three miles outside Skiathos Town with beautiful views. There is a good bus service but it is a half mile walk up a steep hill from the bus stop. We had a hire car for the full two weeks of our stay and thoroughly enjoyed exploring almost every corner of the island. The open air cinema showing Mamma Mia is a must as is Banana BeachMore
A lovely Holiday & Island
This is a late entry from September 2016, and it would be sad not to review the hotel because we had a ball. We travelled as a couple for two weeks . The rooms were sparse but clean and very comfortable. The hotel is on the side of a hill and has many steps which can be a bit daunting. There was everything for a lift present except for the carriages which should be ready for this summer (2017). The hotel has a driver with a carrier and he makes regular trips from the hotel reception to the beach, and if your room is near the bottom of the hill will collect you for lunch dinner etc. The quality and the presentation & quality of the food was excellent as was the service. Although not a huge choice it was always freshly prepared. We hired a Jeep for 3 days and explored the Island and with an offer that was available, good value. Its a lovely Island with plenty to see and the jeep is a good way to do it, especially the north side. We also did a couple of boat trips to the adjacent islands. A restaurant, the Olive Thea is very much recommended. The restaurant will collect you from your hotel and bring you back. The Thomson rep, who was very good, arranged this. The food is excellent. The views over the bay at sunset make it essential not to forget your camera. The beach is of coarse sand and sun beds readily available. A water taxi runs from the beach to Skiathos town, but the bus is an experienceMore
