Just returned from a week in Skala at Makis Studios. I found the apartment very clean it was the usual greek basic but very adequate for our needs. It was a very quiet peaceful location. Very close to shops and restaurants a bit further to beach but I prefer accommodation like this as its not as far to stagger back...

We can totally recommend these appartments for their peaceful location, but are only a few minutes gentle walk to all the restaurants etc. The beach I would say was about a ten minute stroll down what I would call a slope which is not strenious, friendly welcoming staff, fairly priced drinks and quailty bar snacks and as many reviews have...

Would definetly stay here. Although rooms are on the small side it is more than compensated by the warm and friendly hospitality shown to you by all staff. Food, good quality snacks at reasoble prices.

I loved Skala and loved the Makis Studios. Our room was a good size and beautifully clean. We got wifi in our room at no extra cost, and the safe for 20 euros and air con for 65 euros for a fortnight didn't feel unreasonable. Our room had a kettle and toaster, and even washing up liquid, teatowel and sponge...

Good location and immaculately clean rooms. Nice pool and bar area. BBQ is good value on Saturday nights 15€ and excellent food-dancing is optional, led by the ever energetic Maria. The start of the main street is a few minutes walk away, beach is about a 10 minute walk.

Clean friendly quiet studios in a great location. Pool area quiet and plenty of sunbeds no need to rush down and reserve as with other hotels and apartments we have been to. Our studio was cleaned to a high standard every day and would definitely stay here again .
