Hi. Thanks for letting me join. We've been to skiathos 5 times and are returning this year with our 12, 11 and 2 yr old children. Plus bringing the grandparents! Keen to know more about places with toddler pools but that are also good for my mum who struggles with hills. Nikki

Welcome to the forum Nikki.
Personally i know of two places for definate that have toddler pools, the Plaza hotel in Kanapitsa and the Diamond apartments in Kolios. There are probably many more and hopefully somebody will be able to help.
The Plaza is a bit of a walk to the nearest bus stop, but you can get a water taxi from the beach into town. The Diamond is about 300 metres from bus stop 15 along a small lane? See my accomodation report on the Diamond here,
Thanks. We checked out the situation at Plaza last year but I was worried the beac would get too packed seeing as it's so small. We had a villa last year so had to drive into town but I do love the water taxi so am very tempted by plaza. I'm surprised how few places have toddler pools. Thanks for your reply. X
We stay by the Myrtia Summer Village in Koukounaries and there is a lovely toddler pool, plus large normal one for your older children. It's worth you having a look, but it is popular & may not have much availability. There is also a tennis court, table tennis & the excellent taverna next to the pool puts on BBQ & Greek dancing nights & also shows Mama Mia regularly. The staff (especially Vlatco) are great with the children.
Saying that, we haven't got kids, but also enjoy it there. It's not noisy & in your face and everyone is lovely. Another plus with your toddler is the safety - you walk along a level, sandy track through the forest to the Myrtia. Some accommodations are quite near the road. The nearest bus stop is No 23 - Mandraki Hotel - and there is a supermarket there, too. You are at the harbour end of Koukounaries beach and can walk through the nature reserve rather than along the road. There are no hills - unless you want to walk to the Banana beaches/Aghia Eleni!
