“Good standard, with a bit of work a 5”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We went to Alexandra beach for two weeks in August, on a family Holiday with our 10 year old daughter. We had a lovely time and there where a lot of positives Food was a good standard always warm and clean and plenty of variety. Staff where very nice all polite and keen to please. The position of the hotel is great with the private beach and views, plenty of water sports and only a short walk to Potos and the smaller village at the end of the beach.
As for the negatives,. Well the rooms could do with a bit of an upgrade and the drinks are expensive as is the mini bar if you chose to use it. We would go back though so surely a sign that it is a nice hotel.

Room Tip: The staff are accommodating and if you are not happy ask for a move

This is a beach resort suites to families and not for couples with no children.
The price for one night in August was too high for what we got. The positive side: the room was clean, nice, big with many places to store our cloths and all the belongings. The negative side: there wasn't a good wi fi connection in our room, the TV was also with bad reception at night, there was a very poor water flow in the shower and the food in the hotel Taverna was expensive and not so good.
The beach is very nice and clean but again, it's families oriented.
in overall it was too expensive for what we got in return.

We returned to the Alexandra Beach, having stayed 3 years ago, and were just as happy as previously. The travel arrangements ran like clockwork and the ferry journey was a lovely start to the trip. Once on the island the transfer was relatively short and on arrival at the hotel we were made very welcome and given all the necessary info' to make our stay enjoyable. The hotel is very comfortable, the rooms are clean and have everything you would need in fact, maid service is a little OTT as towels are changed daily and linen almost as regularly. Food is great, lots of choice and plentiful. It is a buffet so a little busy at times but if you choose carefully you'll miss the rush. You can always eat in the Taverna for a change and waiter service. Prices are fine, what you'd expect to pay at home, not cheap but where is these days. The pool and beach are lovely and clean both offering waiter service so you don't have to stray far from your sunbed and towels are available from reception. Entertainment is ok. You can escape if you want to as there are several bars to choose from and nearby Potos or Pefkari are a short stroll away for bars or a typical Greek evening. There are a few excursions available, our favourite being the boat trip with Captain Vasilis - brilliant day, not tacky or packed, just really good fun for all ages. Hiring car is a good option and you can do the whole island in a day. Driving is easy, only one road going around and no traffic lights. We stayed as a family with 2 teenage boys who had a great time also, what we saw of them! It's a lovely safe place and I have to say that the staff are all fantastic, nothing is too much trouble and they always have a smile, despite the long hours they work. Last but not least the spa, an added bonus, all the usual goodies available and a gym, if that's your thing. On the whole an amazing trip, lovely and relaxing in an idiliic location, will surely return.

We have just returned from 2 weeks at the alexandra beach. The hotel itself is set amongst lots of trees, with lots of fruit and veg being grown, the air had the smell of herbs it is a beautiful setting. The room is fine although for a 4 star and a Thomson platinum hotel I would have liked more of a luxurious feel, but this is just my opinion I am hard to please! however the most important thing is cleanliness and the room was kept spotless. The mattress was very hard but as advised by another review we asked for a mattress topper which was great and did the trick. There was no tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Breakfast and evening meal were fine with a good variety of food, eaten on a terrace with an amazing view, the men have to wear long trousers handy to know before you go. If you are thinking of going full board we wouldn't recommend it, this is only because it comprises a 3 course meal which for me was too much, the food again was lovely but an option for a sandwich would be good. The beach is pebbly so some rubber beach shoes would be a good idea, the sea is amazing for snorkeling we saw loads of fish, there are plenty of loungers and a really nice touch is the red button put on the parasols, the staff come to you to take your order from the beach bar so you don't have to leave your seat. The staff are a credit to the hotel and really looked after us. The hotel pools were lovely to and even in aug we could get a lounger in the afternoon. Ann the Thomson rep was lovely and really went out of her way to ensure we had a great time she even sent us a anniversary card (thank you). The trips were quite expensive, however the jeep trips are well worth the cost with only 6 people and the guide we went allover the Island on and off road. We had a brilliant holiday at the hotel and would highly recommend to anyone.

We went on a family holiday in August with three generations. The trip was excellent. This was our fourth time to Thassos, although we had not visited for ten years, the island did not disappoint. The first time at the hotel for us and we were pleased with our choice. We had two rooms next to each other and the sleeping arrangements could not have been better with proper beds for the children as part of the room.

The hotel is lovely and as many have commented before that the team working there are so helpful and friendly. Whenever we wanted any help they were ready to give assistance. Kettles are not standard in the rooms, however a quick request at the reception and we had a kettle and cups.

The rooms themselves are fine - they are not luxury however they provide everything that you could want and were spotlessly clean. The hot water was plentiful so no complaints there. It was quite nice not to have your full range of TV and if you wanted to know what was going on in the world then you did have access to BBC or CNN.

The restaurant was fantastic. We just could not see why anyone would have any cause to complain. It was so nice to see a selection of local food and the salad bar was extensive. Every night you had an wide choice and even though we stayed for two weeks we did not get to see the same meals time and time again. If you like desserts then you are in for a treat with a great choice of cakes, ice cream or fruit. Breakfast was great too - so you did not get your typical full English breakfast you did get eggs in several forms, omelette, sausages, bacon (although that did seem to disappear during the end of the second week) and tomatoes. In addition there were several varieties of pastries - savoury and sweet - yogurt, fruit, cereal, rolls, toast, pancakes and the list goes and on. Just how could you complain?

We spent most days by the beach. You can get towels from reception each day. If you have small children then be aware that there is not a huge amount of sand although you will find some. However, the beach being pebbles and rocks does have some of the best snorkelling that we have seen in the Med. We saw numerous fish, an octopus and several cuttlefish. We purchased snorkels for our two children and that was that for the two weeks. The pontoons are great for getting into sea without having to brave the stones and urchins. As others have mentioned you should bring some beach shoes with you if you have them as they are needed with urchins and sharp rocks. If you have not got any though you can buy some either at the hotel of at the local shops of Potos.

The roof bar was a lovely venue for a pre-dinner drink and the sunsets are spectacular from there. The pool bar was lovely too. The evening entertainment at the hotel was fine. We particularly enjoyed the Zumba nights. If you want a lot of entertainment then this hotel would not be for you.

I had two treatments at the spa during the two weeks. Both were lovely and with the 50% discount for Thomson guests really good value.

We did not venture far having been to the island before. However, Potos is very close and has nice shops, bars and restaurants (not that we ate there). We went to Limenaria a couple of times but it was very quiet even though it was August.

Overall, we would highly recommend this hotel. It doesn't have a full on kids club, activities or bars and if you want that then don't come here. If you want somewhere relaxing, delicious food, excellent team and welcoming environment then come here. We all came back after two weeks relaxed and ready to face the world. Would we come again - we certainly would!

After reading some of the reviews before leaving, I was beginning to wonder if we had picked the right place for our holidays. Any concerns were put to rest.
The transfer to the hotel was good and the ferry added to the holiday experience.
The hotel is lovely and and can not say enough good things about the staff. They are so helpful, they were always smiling. They can't do enough for you to add to your holiday experience.
The beds were fine, we all slept really well, I suppose its down to preference. We had rooms on the ground floor and they were absolutely fine.
The food was varied, we didn't have a problem with it at all and never had a problem getting a table. The beach was lovely as well and the views of the sunset are amazing from the roof bar.
We were not disappointed at all. This was our best holiday to date. We are even thinking of returning next year.
The only thing I would say is to check any charges to your room before you leave. We had one for drinks although we paid as we went. But they took it off.
