    Our opinion

    "The hotel combines the charm of a small hotel with 5-star facilities and levels of comfort yet with a highly personalised service that is aimed at families."

    Hotel description

    This Small Luxury Hotel of the World is a five star luxury family hotel situated on Agia Paraskevi, one of the most beautiful locations on the island of Skiathos, renowned for its natural beauty and stunning white sand beaches. The hotel combines the charm of a small hotel with 5-star facilities and levels of comfort yet with a highly personalised service that is aimed at families. A highlight of this hotel, in addition to its white sand beach, is the professionally run Kids' Club, which is complimentary for children aged 4 to 12 and at a small charge for under 4s. The extensive range of entertaining and enticing indoor and outdoor activities organised by the well-trained staff at the Kids' Club are designed to ensure maximum enjoyment for children and minimum inconvenience to adults, whether travelling with children or not. Evening entertainment is held three times a week too.

    Another attraction for families are the family rooms, located on the ground floor, that can take up to 2 adults and 2 children with two double beds. Deluxe family rooms have a double and two single beds separated by a screen. The hotel is geared to providing amenities for children and dining arrangements that suit families, with children’s menus available in all restaurants. The main restaurant, with both outdoor and indoor areas, Leto Concept, is open for breakfast and dinner and is based on three concepts, with open plan cuisine offering Mediterranean, grills, and Asian food. The Muse offers bistro style food throughout the day and PR Ammos serves Mediterranean and Greek cuisine on the beach in a setting inspired by a very modern twist on the traditional taverna.

    As well as offering day-long activities for children, the Skiathos Princess Hotel lives up to its status as a Small Luxury Hotel of the World and has an array of attractions for adults too, with the Harmony Club spa and fitness, water sports, and diving a short distance away. The island itself is ideal for visiting by hire-car or you can take excursions by boat to neighbouring islands.
