“A totally relaxing experience - excellent staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2011

We spent 12 days recently at the Astir Notos based on the positive reviews of previous guests on Trip Advisor. Our experience was similar to others and we were very pleased with our choice. The hotel was excellent, extremely well looked after and very well managed. The staff were friendly and efficient and were always willing to chat within reason. The pool area was well maintained and the pool itself more than adequate. We enjoyed the fact that the hotel was relatively small and, therefore, more intimate than usual package holiday fare. For teenagers, it might be slightly boring if there were no others of their own age, which is more difficult in a smaller sized hotel

Rooms were well kept and clean, and we personally found the beds firm but comfortable. Indeed, I slept better than at home, which is rare. We had a more than adequate bathroom and a balcony with a good view.

Our package was half-board. The variety was acceptable on any one day and some of the dishes presented were excellent, and mostly traditional Greek dishes. However, there were a few noticeably poor days in terms of the dinner choices and we think we might have been bored with breakfast in particular if we had stayed longer; the cereals were always the same as were most of the hot dishes. I think UK travellers would have enjoyed more cereal options.

Internet speed was excellent and available free in the lobby area and even around the pool. It was not free in the rooms, which was disappointing, especially as we enjoy listening to the radio via the internet in the mornings. The TV in the room was very small and the only channels in English were BBC World and CNN (plus CNN business). The television in the lobby was large and the hotel showed a range football games from the premiership and Bundesliga.

As non-smokers, we occasionally found the smoking on the dining room balcony and the lobby area unpleasant.

Just came back from a 7 night stay at the hotel and we had a really nice relaxing time.
The location is great, 5min walk to the city center so you don't have to take the car which is great as there is a lack of parking space in the Potos center. It's far enough away from any nightlife so very quite and relaxing. The staff is very friendly and with good language skills. The pool and the area around it was also great. Rooms were very clean and felt new and fresh.

The only 2 things I would have a remark on are:
1. The food was not up to the standard of the hotel. You can eat it but that's it, you don't really enjoy it, so I would for sure try to have breakfast only option next time.
2. The water in the shower kept changing from very hot to cold so you had to keep trying to find a normal temperature all the time while showering which is kind of annoying, but I informed the staff on check out and they would look into it.

Overall a very pleasant stay and can definitely recommend it.

My wife and i have just returned from a lovely relaxing weeks holiday at this hotel, and it is easy to see why it is so highly rated. All areas are kept so clean and the rooms are well decorated,spacious,and modern. The pool area is excellent with plenty of sunbeds, umbrellas, and natural shade and the water was always in pristine condition. The free wi-fi connection in the reception area was excellent and they had all the latest football matches on a large screen t.v.
We stayed on a half board basis and meals were served on a buffet style and you could eat as much as you liked. The food was very good with plenty of choice and variation, and was always hot enough. One area of the dining room had 6 tables outside overlooking the pool.
We went on a couple of trips which were excellent, an island tour and a BBQ boat cruise. We also took the local bus to Thassos town which is well worth a visit, and only 4.70 euros. If you go the return bus leaves from the ferry terminal, and not where you are dropped off in the town centre. You can also buy english cigarettes in Thassos and a stick of L and B cost 36 euros.
Overall an excellent hotel, and a great choice for a couple.

Room Tip: A few rooms have double beds so if you want one e-mail the hotel and ask. No tea and coffee in the r...

We stayed at the Astir Notos for one week, wish we could have stayed longer! The Hotel was always spotless, rooms cleaned every day with fresh towels every day. The food was lovely, mostly traditional Greek food. The staff were all really helpful and friendly, and being a family run establishment, it felt really personal.
The pool area was relaxing and quiet.
The hotel is on the edge of Potos, with a short walk through an olive grove to the main streets. It is also a short walk to the beach, which is quite long and mostly sandy , having bars at each end with sun beds for hire or areas of public beach. swimming is best at the left hand side as there are less pebbles on the sea bed there. There are lots of fish and sea life to see if snorkling.
We would go back to the Astir notos and Thassos again (this is our second time to Thassos).

We would like to say thank-you to all the staff at the Astir Notos hotel for making our holiday very enjoyable. This is a relatively new hotel and is decorated to a high standard. I could even go by saying this hotel would better some of the five star hotels we have stayed in. We stayed on half board bases and the food was always piping hot and a good varied choice for all.
The hotel is set back away from the resort centre and beach but each could easily be reached by foot in just a few minutes. There were plenty of bars in Potos, but our favourite was the San Antonio Taverna directly on San Antonio beach. Good service and decent prices.
The down side of the holiday was the disapointment of the beach, however we did find a nice sandy cove (Psili Ammos beach,) it does get very crowded during peak season though and it was a good hours walk away.

My wife and I stayed at the Astir Notos from 6th to 13th July. Each and every day was wonderful. We wanted relaxation and certainly recieved it. This hotel, it's staff, and accomodation and food are excellent. We found the Hotel on line in the first place and read through the reviews prior to booking through First Choice and saw a room online which we particularly like the look of, not expecting it. When we opened the door to our room we actually had the one we saw......... Fabulous start which carried on for the following 7 days........The resort is a small but extreemly friendly village about 10 minutes walk from the hotel and the best beach is signposted to the SeaBreeze restaurant about 10 minutes walk in the opposite direction to Potos.. Thoroughly recommend that restaurant. They serve a graet tasting grilled octopus! Thankyou to all staff at The Astir Notos. Will most definately return at some stage, Steve and Jackie

Room Tip: Don't worry as far as we were aware all rooms are excellent
