Have been to Skala many times and will continue to do so. Have stayed at Socrates on a few occasions and can't wait to go back. Simple, clean and basic. Perfectly located for the beach and restaurants and there is a pool just yards away if that's your thing. The taverna downstairs produces some of the best food in Skala.

Well, I'm nothing if not fair. Stayed here before and slated it. Justifiably. Dreaded staying here again, but got it for £150 pp pw. Hard to say no. This time asked for room above restaurant and overlooking Big Village pool. Got it. Completely different to our last hell hole of a room here. Patio doors had been replaced with modern...

We stayed here from 7th August . We travel a lot and always book withOlympic when we visit Greece . This is described in the brochure as 2star and having mountain and sea views . Our view was the balconies of the Hotel Skala which over looked into our rooms - which made modesty a consideration when coming out of...

Accommodation looking tired, fridge needs replacing ice box door freezes up so it will not shut been like that since last year. Frequency of emptying the toilet bins could be better also a lid on the toilet bin would be an improvement. Bed linen and towels shabby

stayed at Socrates twice, both times it was excellent most accommodation of this type in Greece is basic, but when you go to Skala all you need is some where to crash at night (and in the hot afternoons) the staff are warm and friendly as all people in Skala are, we have never been disappointed with any accommodation in...

The apartment we stayed in was basic but very clean and the location is good ,near to the beach and centre of the village. I wouldn't...

Typically Greek, basic but well maintained/presented hotel. Only a few rooms but Fantastic location right in the heart of the resort. Resort caters for all ages and tastes. Some of the best Greek quisine we have ever had throughout the resort, but the Socrates traditional meals were by far the best. Free use of pool 10 yards from you front...
