On arrival to the Thalassa Hotel we were allocated a sea view standard double room. The views from the room were lovely but the room itself was far from boutique and did not reflect images shown on the website. The overall décor of the room was basic and was finished to a poor standard:- Key socket was hanging off the wall, furniture stained, floor was dirty, fridge provided in room was falling apart, cracks in the wall, taps super-glued back together.. this was definitely not a promising start to our holiday..........
After complaining to both the manager and hotel staff who didn't seem to completely understand what the problem was with the room even though they could see we were both incredibly upset and disappointed we were told there was a possibility of being upgraded to a different room which occurred 3 days into our week stay when were allocated a superior room on the ground floor still with the magnificent sea view. This room was beautiful and reflected the "boutique" standards:- king-size bed, lovely décor, French style furniture and finished to a high quality.
Staff at the front of the hotel were incredibly friendly in helping us with any queries and questions from where the best places to eat were, how to get to beach etc.
Breakfast had a large selection of food from continental to more traditional Greek style.
The Lounge and Breakfast areas were wonderfully decorated and had a quirky edge to them to create the boutique ambience. The pools were lovely to laze around during the hotter parts of the day.
The Thalassa Hotel is ideally located:- sea views, a 5-10 minute walk to the Lassi main street and a short walk to the beach.
Overall a lovely hotel but some areas do need some TLC, would recommend to stay:- choose a superior/ sea view room to get the best experience ( but don't always believe the pictures)
