I found the section of around the island in Skopelos untrue. They say do not stay in Loutraki but it is the nicest side of Skopelos. The Hotel Avra is described as being in Glossa but it is actually in Loutraki and is rundown. The best hotel to stay in Loutraki is at the Hotel Selenunda (30)24240 34073. Also another option for B&B is Aegean Wave. In my opinion I would go to Loutraki over Skopelos town any day of the week. It is clean, quiet and friendly.
