Having just stayed at Makryammos for 2 weeks as a family of 4, we did not want to leave! Really wonderful setting in a hilly forest leading down to a beautiful beach. It was perfect for our 3 and 4 year old while my wife and I could sit back and relax as they played safely in the sea. The snorkelling was really good - crystal clear water with thousands of fish and even a few cuttlefish!
The food was varied and very good, the pool and bars were nice and we had 2 weeks of blue skies and 32 - 40 degrees. Some of the bungalows are looking a bit old inside and when we turned up we were allocated one with bunk beds - no use for a 3 and 4 year old especially with tiled flooring but reception were very helpful and found us a different bungalow without bunks.
Peacocks roam freely and come up to the bungalow terraces as do wild deer and we even had a resident owl who visited our terrace during the evening. There is also a small zoo where the kids fed the deer daily with left over watermelon :)
Not many English people there - mostly from Romania, Russia, Ukraine, Greece and Germany. And there is ofcourse the usual sunbed wars around the pool with towel placement.
Thassos town is not far - 6 Euros in a taxi or a 15 - 20 minute hilly walk. I would say the walk is not suitable for young children due to lack of any pavement. It is a lovely little town, I really recommend the Thassian Doukas restaurant at sunset. Also Simi and Mythos resaurants (also at sunset). Plenty of ATMS or the Bungalows can change Travellers Cheques.
It really is a beautiful and quiet place with a lot to do. Thoroughly recommended! (as is the Mythos beer!!!)
