My boyfriend and I visited Skala last Sept 2004. We found Hermes House an excellent apartment, especially as this was a last minute booking. The room was very clean and with virtually everything looking brand new. The room was spacious and airy with a lovely balcony with the mountains on your left and the sea on the right hand side. There was no air conditioning but always fans to hire along with water and other drinks at Reception. Hermes House was situated perfectly, with a 5-10 min walk to the sea passing the lovely smell of Jasmine along the way. The people were very friendly with the shops having all you could want.
