This is a great family run hotel that we wouldn't hesitate in going back too. The rooms were kept spotless and have everything you need, The views from the balconies were fantastic and we really enjoyed sitting out on them for our breakfasts. Unfortunately we had the room at the top of the hill so it could be a bit...

Saw the reviews on Trip Advisor so why not? This is great place to stay the owners and staff are very friendly and helpful and the place is spotless and well maintained. Nick is a top bloke and an interesting fella to chat to. Our room was spacious and as with everywhere else also spotlessly clean. I would highly recommend...

We stayed the last week in August. The apartments were really spacious and clean, including a spacious, modern bathroom with shower tray (no wet floors here). Lovely little kitchen area that included a kettle and toaster. The apartments are set apart from each other so that you are not overlooked or looking out over your neighbours. The pool area is...

You cannot fault the hardworking staff or quality of the rooms and grounds here at Crystal Palace studios. They look quite new and are a high standard. They have thought of everything like a handy mini kitchen, a shaving mirror and a mini extending clothes dryer on the balcony and it is all extremely clean and bug free and the...

We stayed in June (sorry to Nick and Vickie for taking so long to do this!!). It was a fantastically welcoming place from the start. Our room was immaculate with fantastic views. The atmosphere was homely and inclusive, the poolside was very relaxing and the food was excellent. We've stayed in Skala a few times over the years and like...

Just back after a couple of weeks break staying at the Crystal Palace. The place is wonderfully located on a hillside 15 minutes walk from the centre of Skala via road or through a bamboo track leading down to the sea...

The studios at the Crystal Palace were absolutely fantastic, the rooms were spacious and extremely clean. The path leading to the beach gives that look of 'off the beaten track' resort and it looks almost magical at night. I was almost tempted not to write any reviews about it with the hope that not many people will find this place...

We stayed the final week of August. Our holiday was organised with Thomson. The accommodation is fantastic value for money. It is all very clean - our room was cleaned every day and the pool and bar area are spotless. The room 504 had a beautiful view of the sea and we enjoyed a drink on our balcony. There were...
