Content: We landed at around 12 PM.Skiathos airport is small and easy to navigate. There was a check point for vaccine certificate/ pcr tests and online form from Govt. website. We took a cab from to our hotel. Taxis are cheap and definitely the easiest way to reach your hotel from the airport. We stayed in the Megali Ammos area and would recommend booking hotels in this area as it is close to the old town, beaches and close to public transport

Content: We checked in to our small and beautiful family run hotel. We booked a room where we paid 15 euros extra per night to get the room on the first floor facing the pool. We requested sea view as well and voila!we got both - pool and sea view. Simple but good breakfast was included and served in the room. The hotel has one negative point, a 5 mins steep walk. But that gives this amazing view from the rooms and balconies, totally worth the steep walk.
