Reviewed 30 January 2013

Last year 'Playaway abroud' used Thalia as their appartment for alll the workers that were promised a nice appartment near the strip. uhhh no. its in the middle of nowhere. had to walk through pitch black fields and atleast half hour to get to the strip. about an hour to the beach. we spent the first 5 days living in sewage water as everytime we showered the drains would fill up and over fill covering the whole appartment. loads of people had stuff stolen by the cleaner. the shower water went everywhere. the pool was cleaned twice in the month i was there. kitchen dicusting. owner i have no idea who that even was. lady at the pool bar was lovely but other than her i cant think of one good point of this place. no privacy no cleanliness no kitchens in the appartment nothing. DONT EVER PAY MONEY TO GO THERE.

Room Tip: if your that desperate that you need to stay here make sure you stay in the seperate appartments whi...

Worst hotel ive ever stayed in in my life! went there back in 2008 and upon arrival had to go find the hotel manager ourselves because he was nowhere to be seen. The room was very stuffy. Didnt pay for the aircon just because I dont think we should have. Wata cheek! Cleaner banged on the door 8am every morning and if you didnt answer which we didnt because we were still trying to sleep she would use the master key and let herself in so we had to leave our key in the door to prevent this. I was accused of entering and dirtying another hotel room by that poor excuse of a manager just because i handed in a key tht i found by the pool. I couldnt wait to leave there. The whole holiday was a nightmare because of that lame hotel. DO NOT GO THERE!!!!

Room Tip: choose a room in a different hotel altogether!!!!

We went there last year.
We are a family of 4. We stayed in a villa. The rooms were clean and we had no problem with the stuff there. The vlosest pubs , taverns and shops at the main road of Laganas were 10 minutes away on foot. Although for younger people not ideal as a family destination was perfect since the place was quite during the night and not isolated from the rest either. Especially if you rent or bring a car its really convinient since they have their own free parkimg space both near the villas and around the pool. In my opinion ideal accomodation to enjoy quite days and nights around the poolbar and far enough from the noise of the nightclubs

We were here in 1996..
Four people, my mother was turning 50 years...
None of us have ever had ha worse hotel not before nor after...!!!
We are amazed that Thalia is still here and runing..??
There were ants in the food...everything was filthy...the pool wasn´t cleaned at all...
The Telefone in the reception rang all the time, night and day...
Ignorant and imbecill personal..when we complained they turned of our warm water..(!)
My mother and her husband got a room next to the kitchen, even tough we had paid extra to get a nice room
We had especially picked this hotell for my mothers birthday, so the disapointment was even bigger...!!
AVOID...!!!!!!!

not alot to say bout this place apart if ur going to laganas do not go to this hotel the owner is an absolute idiot! the accomadation is terrible. i mean u wldnt expect alot from a 2 star but this is 1 star just becos it has a good pool in my view. the strip 30 mins away. the apartments are falling apart and if something breaks the stupid men and owners will blame it on u and try and get u to pay for it.
BUT laganas if amazing for clubs rescues was awesome g-spot amazing beach great perfect for lads holiday and girls holiday ....
just believe me choose a different hotel and not this one!

I have just returned from a 7 night stay in this poor excuse for a hotel... So many things wrong.

1. Hotel does not look like what we were promised in the travel agency.

2. The manager is a wierdo!... No Joke! - He kept asking about a pair of greek girls that were hanging around with us, and when he asked them who they were going out with in the evening, they said the english lads. And with a quick reply he snubed them.
The guy also tried to tickle my feet!!! - Odd.

3. Lots of wasps around the pool.

4. You have to pay for air con, minimum of 3 nights, this will not be included in the price. 7 euros a day - Also the cleaner will turn it off and leave the door on the balcony open. Dennis will also come and take the remote once the aircon runs up. He will not ask you if you would like to extend it.

5. Food was not fresh and half a beer is 3 euros, thats right 3 EUROS!.

6. Towels and sheets were not cleaned at all.

7. The night life is about a 30 minute trek in to town.

8. The shop is a good 10-15 minute trek.

9. The shower was broken, and had no curtain so water would go everywhere.

10. The rooms in general were falling to pieces and my brother had to sleep on a converted chair... You pay 400 quid for a converted chair?? hmmm...

11. If they tell you it has a kitchen, forget it!

Basically to sum it up. Avoid at all costs.

1 good thing, it was quiet in the evening.

Where to begin - arrived at Zante airport where all the coaches were lined up, to then find we were basicaslly getting in to a van, we were in stitches, you have got to laugh!! We then got to Laganas and had to go past a field with cows in it, over a little bridge, then drive through a dirt track and found Thalia apartments.

The apartments were very clean, nice pool and pleasant staff, especially Mary who worked at the pool side bar. Thalia is what you make it, no good for families or older couples. we were a group of girls who liked to lie by the pool during the day, have drinks and enjoy the nightlife. No entertainment at the apartments but why would you need any when the nightlife is down the road. it was about a 30-35min walk to the main strip so we got taxi's most nights which was about 6-8euros.

Overall we had a great 2 weeks there, no complaints at all, one thing i will say is we did tend to get a few frogs coming in and out of the bathroom, or sometimes moths haha but just keep the window shut, toilet seat down and also plugs in the sink haha.
