The hotel looks small from the road side but it has nearly a hundred rooms. The pool is woefully too small for the size of the hotel. As is the pool bar. The Garden view rooms are more akin to something you might find on the Ponderosa ranch for the cow ranch from the TV series Bonanza. Hence what we...

Got home yesterday after a 10 day break at the Rigas hotel and it was everything we hoped for.

On arrival, the staff seemed quite friendly... this didn't last very long and throughout our stay they all seemed very grumpy (probably because they work non-stop and there always seems to be the same staff on duty morning and night!). On our first night we were put in a smaller/downgraded room due to our room being double booked, which was...

I spent two weeks here with my husband and our two children(9&11) and we had a fabulous time. My travel agent advised me to go bed and breakfast instead of all inclusive as there are so many lovely tavernas to try at good prices plus less would be included in this all inclusive, so I may feel short changed. I...

We were offered the Rigas for a week in August 2016 following a huge error by booking.com. The hotel offers transfers from Skiathos airport to the port, ferry ride and transfers to the hotel. This was faultless with a representative waiting on arrival each way. Evelina was extremely helpful and instantly upgraded the room to an apartment with a large...
