Reviewed 22 July 2010

We have just been back from Thimaras Traditional Residences in Spetses. We stayed in one of their studios. The room was quite basic but very clean. Apparently the room we stayed at was not one of the newly renovated ones, which I have been told have a very luxurious traditional feeling. But since I have not seen the later, I could not comment on these.
The breakfast as in most hotels in Greece is quite basic, with fresh fruits, yogurt, orange juice, bread, cake and cheese slices, accompanied by coffee.
The common areas around the pool, which is also where the breakfast is served, are done to a very high standard and they are a pleasure to be around.
One of the best things about the place is the wonderfully helpful staff. Nothing is too much bother for them. They made us feel right at home, especially Eirini.
Location wise, although it is not too far from the old port, we did find it a bit of a walk from the restaurants and bars. I would highly recommend you hire a scooter (they cost 15Euros per day) to explore the beaches of the island (water taxis are way too expensive).

The place is nice especially the common part (swimming pool area and garden) and the staff is very friendly and helpful. However the rooms may be a bit small and basic and some time the service not perfect. It is a good quality/price ratio. Breakfast is served until 11,00 contrary to what is indicated in the website etc.

WHAT A WONDERFUL PLACE!!
We have stayed at Thimaras Traditional residence from 11th till the 15th of August, and we simply LOVED IT!!. What a relaxing and beautiful environment it is – this is what one is looking from his vacation. The place is situated 5 minutes walk from the old port called ‘Ntapia’. We found that the old port to be 10 times more beautiful from the new port where the night life and the restaurants are exclusive.

Thimaras is a complex of 3 houses build in different levels having as a central feature the beautiful swimming pool. The buildings were cleverly built with the island traditional stone to be all over the place and with elements of traditional village life illustrated on the walls or lying in the court yards (i.e traditional horse carriage, farmer tools).

The place is of a simple setting and over qualifies the 2 star given by the Greek authorities. I have been to too many hotels all over the world the last 10 years and I could easily give this place a four star rating.

The amenity missing is the dinning area and the in house serving of food but those were easily substituted and served by the hotel management as follows:

Continental Breakfast with local bread, ham, juices, honey, butter and cheese its served under a beautifully shaded area next to the swimming pool till 11:30 !!

Lunch and dinner through a delivery order – the family that runs the place serve the people to death, thus they provide information and telephone numbers where to get the best of the best.

Frape, bottled water and cold juices were provided free of charge at the swimming pool area. The swimming pool is hidden in the central stone made court yard surrounded by beautiful trees.

What is so special about this place?
- How friendly the people that are working there are. It reminded me the traditional Greek hospitality that one could experience at Greek islands in the old times.
- The magnificent view from the rooms of the second floor.
- The traditional metal beds in the rooms, the rooms have different themes and a Greek name.
- The quality in service that people provide (They have rented a motorcycle for us in order to travel to the beaches that are on the other side of the island; they have taken us to the supermarket for shopping, they are there to serve).
- How clean the place is .. I believe that this is also supported by the beautiful marble floors in the rooms.

Definitely I will be back at this place with friends … and I definitely recommend it.
