Just got back yesterday from 10 days staying at Costas and Mary hotel in Skiathos
Mary is a great host greeting all her guest on arrival personally and amazingly remembers all guest names and greets you with such each day. Makes the effort to speak to everyone each day to ensure you are enjoying your holiday
The hotel is typically Greek bedrooms and shower room are simply furnished but are more than adequate with nice balconies
The whole of the small hotel is kept spotlessly clean in all areas the gardens and swimming pool are again a credit to the gardener come handyman
Breakfast again typically Greek but more than adequate and from 8am to 12pm her 2 sons run the small snack area and bar and again are good host
This was our first time in Skiathos which is a lovely town and island lots of lovely beaches and great choice of bars and restaurants
We have booked to return to Costa and Marys for 2 weeks for Sept 18 and most of the people who stayed during our visit where doing the same many have returned to visit this hotel many times which speaks volumes for Mary and her families hospitality

Had a great week. Hotel very welcoming absolutely spotless and breakfast very good. Great hosts.
Rooms very clean although hard beds. Clean towels daily. Wall mounted hairdryer not brilliant but nice little fridge which is handy.
Air con is charged at €50 a week..
Pool is nice. Quiet & relaxing. Bar area fine although not a social hub!. Location is excellent. Town is 2 mins walk away. Airport 10 min walk.
Would stay again as very convenient base to explore.

We booked a week here more than twelve months ago, based on the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor.
Upon arrival we noted how immaculately clean the grounds and property were. This is the ONLY good feature of the hotel. Contrary to other reviews, Mary is not the friendly and warm host that is portrayed. We were greeted with criticism of the fact that we had two suitcases for a week's holiday. The rooms are basic in the extreme and my pets at home have more comfortable beds! The shower area is so small that it is difficult to adequately rinse off soap or shampoo.

One evening we retuned from our evening meal and sat for a while on our balcony. A man on the next balcony, who was obviously extremely inebriated, attempted to engage us in conversation mainly about the noise from dogs in the neighbourhood. He then fell asleep in his chair and we subsequently retired to bed for the night.

Imagine our horror the following morning when we entered reception and my husband was verbally accosted by both hosts accusing him of having woken our neighbours by heavy banging on his door, resulting in damage to the door. This confrontation was in full view of other guests and Costas, the host, told my husband that unless he paid for the door to be replaced then he would not allow us to remain in the hotel. The Thomson representative Lucy arrived and talked to both my husband and the other man, again in a public place. She advised us that there were no rooms available at other hotels on the island, nor would it be possible to obtain an earlier flight home, to escape this nightmare. She concluded that the incident was purely here say and there was nothing she could do. After she left Mary again insisted that my husband pay for a replacement door. My husband reiterated that he had nothing do do with what had occurred and would not be accepting responsibility.She agreed that we could remain in the hotel but the remainder of our stay was spent wondering what would happen next.

As requested we checked out of our room at 10am, with no comment from Mary. Our flight was late afternoon and we had arranged to store our luggage in a friends' room. When my husband went to collect the cases he was confronted by Mary and her two sons, who menacingly intimidated him and demanded €500 or they would prevent us from leaving the island. We took a taxi to the airport, well ahead of time and spent three hours terrified of what was going to happen to us. Only when the plane finally took off, were we able to acknowledge to each other that the nightmare was over.

A holiday totally ruined by false accusations and a hotel to be avoided at all cost.

The hotel is immaculately clean and tidy

And now for more news .....

Just returned from a one week stay Costas and Mary in Skiathos based upon the positive TripAdvisor reports. It is clearly described as a small & friendly family owned hotel
BE WARNED ..... that this is a hotel to avoid at all costs
This family run hotel is NOTHING like its portrayed, as both Costas and Mary are not warm & friendly, but in fact controlling and intimidating ...
My wife and I after 4 nights were singled out to have caused hotel damage by the owners. This allegation was done publicly in the hotel reception by both Costas and Mary and with no evidence whatsoever or any further complaint by Lucy (Thomson Rep) .. what followed can only be described as a Kangaroo Court of guilt laid at my doorstep by both owners culminating in severe intimidations d bullying to repay several hundred euros in cash. When I refused to pay up on such unfabricated involvement in the supposed damage, Costas set about completely lying to Lucy (Thomson Rep) about implying that there were witnesses to the damage
NO witness statements were ever presented or ANY evidence whatsoever
Thomsons Holidays confirmed that the incident was pure hearsay
Mary then desperately involved both her sons to use what can only be described as the 'The Mitchell Brothers' way of handling things by threatening publicly (I have 2 x separate hand written witness statements & video to confirm as such) who saw and heard Mary and her two sons threaten me with re-payment and threatening to call the Police which would result in my wife and I not being able to leave the island
My wife and I caused NO such damage but if we did or anyone else does BE WARNED, Costas and Mary and family are vindictive and nasty people who I suggest should be avoided at all costs!!!!!

Stayed here so many times, just arrived back after another amazing holiday.
Costas and Mary and all the staff are so friendly and welcoming, the whole place is spotless from stepping through the gates.
Wouldn't stay anywhere else 11/10 for me
