Wow I just don't know where to start really, from the moment we arrived on 5th June 2012, we were treated to a glass of local wine in the lovely new renovated reception area with a very warm greeting from Angela the owner. We booked a suite at the hotel on a recommendation from our wedding planner and when we arrived we were told that we were being upgraded to the newly finished master suite which was just gorgeous and we couldn't of dreamed of a better place to stay on such a special holiday. The views are stunning and overlook the sea and bay.
In the mornings for breakfast, you can choose to sit outside and take in the stunning views or eat inside in the newly renovated area. There is lots to choose from and I would say something for everyone whether it be hot food, cold food, cereals, toast etc. Again all the staff couldn't do enough for you, any special requests were taken care of. My Dad had a 65th birthday whilst we were there and he arrived back in their suite later to find a birthday cake in the fridge, it's just all these special touches which make this hotel such a lovely place to stay. They do genuinely care about the guests!
The beach bar served lovely freshly cooked food and all the staff again were extremely helpful and friendly which was perfect as if you want a lazy day round the two lovely swimming pools you don't have to venture far to eat. The nearest sandy beach was about a 2 minute walk away with the more famous Makris Gialos beach probably a 10 minute walk away which is where we got married, there are lots of watersports that are reasonably priced which I would recommend trying out. Is is also only about a 10 minute walk onto the main road where you will find restaurants and bars that are busy but not over busy. I would recommend eating in Butlers House and Veronicas and don't miss the greek nights that they have in a few of the restaurants on different nights they are a good laugh to join in with the dancing and drinking.
We also had the wedding reception in the newly renovated area to the front of the hotel which overlooks the sea and bay, I couldn't think of a more perfect setting to a fabulous evening that we had. Angela and all the hotel staff were on hand to make sure our guests and us were taken care of along with our wedding planner.
All in all this hotel is just such a wonderful place to stay and I know from our guests that some of them are already looking to book to go next year for another holiday and we will definitely be returning for our anniversary. Thanks Angela and everyone that works at the Thalassa hotel for making our stay and our guests stay very special, you truely are devoted to making the Thalassa even more of a success than it already is. Loving wishes Loo & Bri Lake x
