On 8th June we arrived at the airport in Kavala and then transferred by coach to the ferry port. After a 40minute journey we arrived at Thassos Town and arrived at the Socrates Plaza Hotel after about 20 minutes We were met by "George", booked in and shown our room which was on the 2nd floor. Unfortunately the lift was not operating and because it takes two days plus to get someone from main land Kavala it had been decided to stop using it in case a visitor got stuck. After a week the climb up three flights didn't hurt so much "it was slower but didn't hurt."
The hotel is B&B only but the breakfast was plentiful, the pool bar provided a good selection of snacks and there were 8 or 9 good restaurants/cafes only 5 min walk away.
There were ample sunbeds around the pool and although the beach, which was on the back steps, was only about 15ft from hotel to sea it also had a good supply of beds which were free although they did ask that at least E2.50 was spent on refreshments.
The staff were extremely helpful and "Bob" the barman was excellent The way things were charged to your room made it so simple as you did have the option of paying daily. There are several trips out which you can do or just lounge and chill. The BBQ night was great and well recommended. All in all George and his team ensured that everyone had a great time and we hope to make it our third visit to Thassos and second to George and the Socrates. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable time.
