Reviewed 14 September 2017

Location was bus stop 16 , had to catch bus into skiathos town every evening, very busy on the buses but well worth getting to skiathos town,
Studio was lovely and clean, only problem we had was the double bed, it was tiny, so had to go top to toe.
Didn't see any staff on arrival, also staff in supermarket were miserable. Young girl in the bar was lovely.
Lovely pizza restaurant next door with great food, food and drinks very dear.

Room Tip: Bungalows have the tiny double bed

Just arrived home after a weeks stay at the Roulla apartments although quite basic it had been recently decorated with new bedding and curtains we found the staff to be very welcoming especially the barman and maid. On arriving we had been allocated a 2nd floor apartment which wasn't suitable for our needs but were moved to a ground floor without any hassle. The super market is expensive and the staff in there are miserable. The pool was very clean and the sunbeds were comfortable. Well worth a visit to Skiathos town lots of good eating places. A boat trip is a must. We ate at the Platanias Taverna and bar which is next to the apartments serves fantastic food and the waiters really make you feel special free drinks and coffee well worth a visit. The beach is very good and just 5 minute walk from the apartments

Myself, husband and daughter stayed here earlier this month and although skiathos itself is absolutely amazing, roulla apartments are not. The pool was dirty all week and most of the staff including the shop workers were rude and ignorant, throwing filthy looks and being blunt despite us spending lots of money there and to be there. My bed sheet had a rip in it and two brown stains, which stayed on the sheet all week, proving they had not been changed and forcing me to sleep with my daughter because it was disgusting. Some of my jewellery kept being moved around our room unnecessarily. So I then had to ensure I kept it with me at all times. Some of my daughters makeup went "missing" and the young cleaner seemed to know nothing about it. Be wary of the cleaners as another guest told me that their sons hand held game device also went "missing" and they also suspected the cleaner. Not happy at all and will never stay here again.

We have been to Skiathos every year for over 20 years, we first stayed at Roulla Studios around 15years ago & the owner was lovely and friendly & the studios very clean.
After staying in a few over locations around the island we returned to stay at Agia Parascevi as we love the beach & amazing tavernas there. Undeniably the location of Roulla is great, only less than 5 mins from the beach & tavernas. Also only a short bus ride into town & the bus stop is opposite the studios.
Last year we stayed at Roulla, we had a lovely cleaning lady Donna, who was very friendly & also cleaned our room every day & made our stay worth it. The rooms are very basic but they were clean and enough for us to just sleep in as we are out all day.
HOWEVER this Summer we returned to Roulla, all cleaning staff had changed, all staff were extremely rude, no body greeted us on arrival. No one ever said even good morning! The cleaning girl also would move our belongings everyday and we felt our stuff was being moved & looked through. One day we returned from the beach midday to find my daughters belongings had been moved & a top had been taken from the side! As we went to find the cleaner, she instantly insisted that the top had been mixed up & put into the wash with sheets, however she instantly knew what room we were in & the top we were talking about before she even looked for it. The wifi is terrible, does not work at all, also to be honest for the price you pay to stay in these rooms the facilities are not very good at all. The same price would get you somewhere same location but much better facilities & nicer company!
All staff members were very rude, the shop attached to the studios also owned by the same owners were very unfriendly. Every day we would spend a reasonable amount of money for drinks, food ect & everyday the ladies/men would insist on asking change & also would even look throughout your purse to find the change.
One day we didn't not have any change to give & the lady's behind the desk was obviously not happy with our €20 note, she was so rude aggressively shoved the money into my hand. If you do need essentials we would say try the shop just down the road passed the tavernas or there's a lovely tuck shop on the beach with very reasonable prices & the old lady who owns it has been there for over 20 years & is lovely!!
We LOVE Skiathos so much!! It's the most beautiful island, all locals are so friendly the tavernas have amazing food, the beach Agia Parascevi is a beautiful sandy beach both quiet, family friendly but also has a nice bar & watersports available. We would recommend the island completely, however we would not recommend this accommodation. Stay somewhere else!!

Room Tip: Try asking for a upper level room as the rooms are so hot you need to have a balcony!

The Roulla Apartments are set in a perfect location, close to bus stop, restaurants and gorgeous sandy beach. Rooms basic but very clean, with all you need for a Greek self catering holiday. With the lovely food served in local restaurants you won't need to stay in your room. During the day the lovely pool area is the place to be if you don't fancy the 5 minute walk to the beach. The bar serving drinks all day and until late at night. There is always a member of staff around to sort all your needs and service is with a smile. The holiday makers all seem to enjoy being part of one big family. All in all very friendly, made my holiday and can't wait to go back.
