“Nice vacation”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

A perfect vacation for families, nice location inside pine woods. The food is amazing and of high quality, the service is also good in the restaurant. The staff was friendly even though we did not order much staff extra. Greetings to Lazar, (from Aliona too) who is very friendly and speaks russian.

Our family just came back from a week in Makryammos, and loved it! We stayed in the sea-front suite with our three children, which was only a few steps from the sea, which really was the icing on the cake. The interior is basic but works really well, the rooms are clean, as it was cleaned and swept every day. The balcony was spacious and private, some afternoons we just stayed on the balcony and went swimming from there. The beach is not the biggest, but very clean (blue flag status), the water was crystal clear, perfect for paddling in the water, swimming and snorkeling near the rocks. If you are looking for high waves to surf or other water sport action, you will not find them here though. The quiet and private beach (you have to pay if you are not a hotel guest) is especially suitable for families with young children, even babies. You can rent sun beds and umbrellas for the whole week, which is really worth the extra 7 Euro per day. Even though it was the middle of July, nobody ever had a problem finding a spot. The bereakfast buffet was good, and as soon as something ran out, they refilled it in a matter of minutes, up until the very last minute. The quality of food in the evening buffet was really good considering the amount of people they had to feed. Lots of choice of meat and vegetarian dishes, only one fish dish most days, and every day the choice was slightly different. The service was really friendly and helpful! If you are looking for grilled fish, it might be worth taking a trip to a traditional greek taverna in the village 2km away for the truly authentic experience. We took the boat taxi which leaves from the pier every day at 17:15 on evening with the kids into 'town', went browsing and to a taverna after for food, and really enjoyed it. The taxi back to the hotel takes only 5 minutes and is worth the €6.
Makryammos is a really beautifully secluded little spot, and if you are looking for a relaxing quiet holiday with your children or as a couple, this place is for you. But if you are looking for action, you would probably be better off looking a bit further...

Room Tip: The sea side suite was truly amazing and worth it, it seems to have the more comfortable beds also...

Beautiful hotel, placed above Makryammos beach, inside pine woods. There are around 60 bungalows, each consisting of 3 rooms. All rooms have terrace overlooking sea, but you can't see sea from all of them because of woods. If you book directly, than you have sunbeds and umbrella free of charge. So, you have beach, pool, small park for children, tennis court, 2-3 bars, 2 restaurants, even a small zoo. The peacocks are walking between bungalows all the time. The service is half-board, so the usual day is - getting up, breakfast, beach, dinner, dring at the bar, going to sleep. You will not have wish to go anywhere else in Thassos.

Pros:
Nice rooms, fantastic food, beautiful beach, many attractions for children. Nothing to add.

Cons:
Internet is available only at lobby, should be available in every bungalow and the beach. Also, if you take Standard rooms, and you get one of the first bungalows, you might have to walk around 300 meters up the very steep hill. They have small golf vehicles that bring you up the hill, but then you might have to wait for one.

All in all, beautiful hotel, if you have small children and want peace on vacation, this might be just for you.

Room Tip: Superior rooms are close to the sea. They are more expensive, but it's worth it.

After landing we were taken to the ferry port where we had a lovely 30 min ferry transfer to the Island of Thassos. It then took 5 mins in taxi to makryammos bungalows.
We arrived mid afternoon so was eager to get to our room freshen up and relax on the beach. We were initially booked in right at the top of the resort which is about a 10 min walk up hill if you take your time it really isn't that bad if you don't have any mobility issues. There is also a buggy that can take you there and down but only runs at limited times in morning and evening.
We did have issues with we're we were situated as the room did not have bunk beds for our 2 boys which we had asked for when booking with Thompson. Reception staff were extremely helpful and moved us when a suitable room became available 2 days later. The rooms are comfortable and cleaned daily with fresh towels.
The beach is beautiful the sea is shallow for children to happily play in our boys are not strong swimmers and this was ideal. The use of sun loungers and umbrella is very well managed there is no towel on lounger issues and plenty to go around because you have to pay 7euro for the day. We had loungers right near the sea so were able to sit and watch boys without worry. The lifeguards are very present and you feel the beach is a safe place.
Food was beautiful good variety very well cooked and something for everyone. I am Gluten and Dairy intolerant and managed to find something every mealtime. Fruit,salad, vegetables,fresh fish and meats, rice etc. The Restraunt staff are extremely helpful friendly and efficient and work very hard to ensure guests are happy. The chefs are continually renewing food to ensure it is fresh and doesn't run low.
There are peacocks roaming freely in the grounds which was lovely to see very often one would sit on our wall on our patio. The boys loved to feed the deers which are situated on the hillside up from the restraunt.
There is a little shop which sells things such as magazines, newspapers books, water, juices, milk, sweets crisps, sun cream, buckets and spades, floats and postcards.
We hired a car for 3 days which cost us and was able to drive around the whole island in 2 hours. This is the first time we had ever hired a car abroad but it was ideal to start off with as there is one road around the whole island. I would highly recommend you do this as you get to see some beautiful sights. There are plenty of rest stops along the way where you can take photos. Lots of beaches to visit also. We went to Marble beach which is somewhere I would recommend visiting. It is a more lively beach with a dj blasting tunes loungers are free though it is a small but busy beach. We went for the beauty of it. The sand is pure marble and white with crystal blue sea. It is situated right by Makryammos. Turn immediately left as you leave the gate and there is a slip road it is rough track so take it slow when driving follow the dusty road down to the car park.
We also stopped off at a monastery run by nuns. A word of advice you can book to visit this with Thompson etc and it will cost over a 100 euro for a family of 4. It is free to go in and if you hire a car doesn't take long to get there. It is VERY strict on attire and clothes are there for you to borrow while you have a look around. We were not there very long so glad we didn't pay the price for the Thompson excursion. It is a beautiful monastery though and has spectacular views worth a stop off on your way around the island.
The car hire cost 150 euro for 3 days with day 4 for free, but as we were returning on day 4 we had price reduced to 119 euro. This was with Europcar there are a few car rental services which offer deals we went with these as it was the car rental that Thompson use and offer full insurance as it was our first time we had done this.
Thassos is a beautiful island and Makryammos a beautiful friendly place to stay. I would highly recommend if you are looking for a relaxing holiday set in picturesque grounds.

Room Tip: If you book with Thompson please be aware the rooms allocated are up in the hill they didn't adv...

Beach and water were excellent, poor service unfriendly staff, no water at dinner for free, no beach seats for free for hotel guests - at least 150 euros for 10 days, terrible insects (wasps, bees, mosquitos) especially during meals. No activities for kids. There is no kids club whatsoever - totally inexistent.
