Just had our second stay at Socrates. Rooms are adequate and well cleaned. We have visited the island many times before and when in Skala, always eat in the taverna below. They know us pretty well and we've always been made very welcome. Isn't it sad that when you have a complaint, people's attitude towards you changes? Basically we had no hot water for two days and when my husband mentioned it to the owner, he was made to feel very uncomfortable and almost called a liar. They then said they had fixed it that day (which they hadn't) as the repair guy turned up the next day! The rest of the staff then seemed to give us a wide berth! Really disappointing as we like the place, but it means we won't go back. If you go, just make sure you don't have any complaints!
The food here is very good and we have eaten here countless times, but we were disappointed after the 'run-in' we had with the owner and subsequent treatment by the up-till-then very welcoming staff - see my comment under the Accommodation heading. It seems they don't take into account the fact that you are good customers both in terms of spending a lot of money in the taverna and on the hire of the rooms (via Olympic) above. It's a shame that the experience we had with the owner and his accommodation means that we won't be back, even to eat.
