Amalia appartmens in koukounaries Best Holidays we ever had!!!
By A Yahoo Contributor, 9/13/06
Have just returned and we've had an excellent holiday - Skiathos is beautiful!
Couldn't fault the cleanliness and friendly staff of the Villa Amalia.Special thanks to GEORGE,OTIS N BELLA !
George's bar is the cheapest in the island ( big beer 1.90 - vodka n orange 3.00 euros !!!) ,when on main road is 3.50 for a beer n 4.50 for a vodka.
Don't miss George's quiz night n George's greek dancing specially when his drunk !!!:)
For breakfasts we recomende Madraki village wich is only 300 metrs from the Amalia nice so you could fill yourself up until dinner time!! Traditional greek breakfast - bread, ham, cheese, greek yoghurt, honey, jam and cereal.
Evening meals - we ate at the Runway on quite a few occasions and it was spot on. Other tavernas worth a mention are Strofilia and The Village.Drank too much local white wine though!!
Beaches - we loved Big Banana beach as it was exceptionally clean and a bit quieter than the main Koukounaries beach. Don't be put of by the naturists, as they are more to the edges of the beach and tend to go on Small Banana Beach which is over the rocks, or down another path.
Trips - we didn't do any through the rep, however, we hired a jeep throught George at the bar (it was 15 euros cheaper n gave us one more day free than Olimpic !!!).Some roads can be quite scary in the north of the island, but well worth doing it to see a bit more of the island.
Buses - they run every 15 mins in the high season (after 1 June) and are 1.40euros each way, so good to go to Skiathos town (30 mins ride) or stop off at another resort.
Anyone that is going to this hotel or resort - we hope you have as good as time as us
