Pelagos Bay Hotel - (Accommodation in Skala)

Simon W           

We went to Pelagos bay as part of a party of 11 for a 40th Birthday party.

After a trying journey from Manchester we arrived at Pelagos bay to be greeted by a very cheerful and genuine Billy and Barbara who made us feel relaxed and at home from the very first minute.

The hotel is excellent and the facilities including a good sized pool and great bar are also excellent. The whole hotel is always spotless and the rooms are immaculately kept.

We spent most evenings and into the early hours sat in the bar with Billy Barbara, Thomas and Vasoula who were all lovely and helped to make our holiday what it was. Billy also put on a party for Lee’s Birthday which was excellent with party games and karaoke, and also Billy’s special challenge the Wall which was great fun.

The bay below the hotel is great to sit in and is easily accessible with steps down to the beach.

As for the location the hotel is about 20 minutes walk from the Centre of Skala but is a nice walk in the day/early evening however a taxi is a must once it has gone dark as the roads are not lit (a Taxi costs only around 4 Euros so is very reasonable)

Pelagos provides food until around 16:30 however there is a restaurant that is well worth a visit about 100 yards away called the boat. Fatos is the man to ask for there and the food is both varied and of an excellent standard, arguably the best in the resort.

All in all an excellent holiday during which I feel I made some more friends in the form of Billy, Barbara, Vasoula, Thomas oh and of course ayessa, You could say we arrived as strangers and left as friends.

I would recommend a visit to Pelagos Bay and I will be going back as soon as I can.

Billy and the Gang – If you read this thanks for a great holiday and see you all soon.

Penelopes (the boat) - (Restaurants in Skala)

Simon W           

The Boat restaurant is situated on the coast road about 1-2 miles out of Skala near Pelagos Bay.

The food was always of an excellent standard and the service always excellent also. Prices for Food and drink are very reasonable. I would definitely recommend the cheese pies as a starter and the mixed grill for two as a main course.

If you are staying in Skala it is worth a visit to this excellent restaurant which boasts excellent views, friendly staff and reasonable prices. In my opinion it is one of the best restaurants in the resort even though it is a little out of town. If you visit ask for Fatos.
