Set on a hilltop, Skiathos Palace is a waterfront hotel on the Greek island of Skiathos. You'll find the pine-covered shores of Koukounaries beach immediately to the north and its quieter neighbour, Maratha beach, to the south. The hotel's outdoor swimming pool has views across the bay, which is home to a handful of bars, tavernas and hotels. You'll be able to order a drink or light snack from the poolside bar and lounge, which is open from morning until late. Skiathos Palace has a typically Greek whitewashed exterior, along with wooden windows, doors and balconies. You'll find green lawns and flowers around the hotel, along with an exterior covered in trailing plants. Rooms have white walls, wooden furniture and open onto a balcony or terrace, where you can sit outdoors and enjoy the view. The hotel's main restaurant is filled with light from floor-to-ceiling windows and has a view of the Aegean Sea. There are two restaurants at Skiathos Palace, offering a combination of a la carte and buffet dining throughout the day. You'll also be able to order food and drink at the hotel's beach bar. You can get the boat to Skiathos Town from Koukounaries beach, where you'll find souvenir shops, galleries, tavernas, restaurants and bars.
Skiathos Palace is 250m from Koukounaries beach and Maratha beach, where you can swim in shallow waters. The centre of Koukounaries resort is 1km away. Skiathos Town, with its cobbled streets, ancient fortress and pedestrianised shopping areas, is 13km from the hotel. From here, you'll also be able to take the causeway to Bourtzi, where you'll find an old maritime museum, Venetian fortress and a restaurant. Further afield, you can drive to Kastro, where you can explore the ruins of Skiathos' former capital city, including a castle, churches and a mosque. You could also hike through the island's mountainous pine forests and visit its olive groves.
As well as the buffet and a la carte restaurants, the hotel has a piano bar, beach bar and poolside bar. Buffet-style dining is available at breakfast and dinner, where you can dine al fresco or indoors. The bars serve light snacks, plus water, soft drinks, local beer and wine.
You could play tennis on the hotel's court, swim in the pool or walk through Koukounaries' scented pine forests. An outdoor playground is available for younger guests.
