“Just gorgeous”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

Alyson and Barry, Wakefield

First time to Thassos, we have spent many holidays in Greece, however not many will match this, the hotel is picture perfect, the people were lovely and friendly. what stunning views in such a stunning location. Plenty to do locally with a very good beech, really good food at reasonable prices, plenty of places to visit. The pace is up to you, from relaxing days to tour the whole island, but the hotel is a must, peaceful, relaxing, wonderful people who can't do enough to help, you need to book well in advance as its usually fully booked, not surprisingly.

The most lovely location for a quiet holiday. Revisited after some 16 years. Little changed except the access road is much improved. The owners are the same and are always keen to help.

Went with Thompson and the transfer was well organised. I suggest that a car is of great benefit not only because the walk to and from the beach can be a chore in the heat, but it gives an opportunity to access the many lovely villages of Thassos, both on the coast and inland. We were lucky in that the hire rates had just come down (end of season) and the car was delivered to and collected from the hotel. The driving on Thassos is easy (compared with some other Greek islands!).

Aliki, Maries, Tripiti and Potos/ San Antonio beach are a must, together with some of the quieter bays to the north of the Island.

Overall highly recommended.

No need to recommend restaurants as the all have something to offer and half the fun is finding your own, but do look out the terrace restaurant at the Enavlion hotel, you might not otherwise come across it as it is back from the front. Definitely worth a visit.

Just got back yesterday. The hotel is locatated between Golden beach and Limeneria. 2 minutes to Paradise Beach, 10 minutes to Aliki which are the best beaches. We had the chance to see all around the island.
The girl named Vaso was very helpful and nice. She answered all our questions and helped us on every issue. The owner of the hotel was also a very nice lady. Also the price was really good!!
The owner has another hotel in Limenas called Captain's Beach Apartments. Very good location, very clean and nice also.

Thank you for cherished us a great holiday. Highly recommended!

Just returned from 2 weeks here, terrific location and views from our room.
Friendly helpful owners, helped us with our greek!
Arranged packed lunches for us and an evening snack on occasions.
Rooms lovely, clean, plenty of fresh towels and hot water for showers in the evening.
Amused most mornings by 4 very cute, playful kittens in the garden!
A lovely relaxing place to stay.
Hired a car for a few days to explore, traffic light, no roundabouts or traffic lights!
Eating out, plenty of choice but our favourite was at Enavlion, great staff, service and food. 5 star treatment at 3 star prices.

Room Tip: All have sea room, ask for a high room if you don't mind extra steps.

This is a family run hotel which is set in a beautiful setting. It is around a 15 min stroll to the beach up a very steep hill. The breakfast was very good with ham,cheese, fruit, yogurt.toast,jam cereal and eggs cake and orange juice tea or coffee.The rooms are all sea views and are very clean and comfortable.This side of the island is very unspoiled and not so busy....Give this place a go as it is a beautiful island.

We stayed here the first two weeks in August 2012. The temperature was in the 40s which made the climb back up to the hotel a bit of a trial but it was well worth it. Clean, comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful owners - plus Nikki's two young children who were polite and sociable - all made this a holiday experience we'd like to repeat.
As some others have mentioned, the wasps can be a bit of a nuisance but as they're a nuisance all over the area it's just something you learn to live with.

Room Tip: All rooms have sea views and balconies. We were on the ground floor and after climbing up the hill f...

As said before, fantastic views of the whole bay. All rooms have a sea view. The rooms are spotless. If you want aircon or fridge this has to be hired. Nikki the owner lent us a kettle so we could make a coffee in our room. the hotel itself is also spotless. Continental breakfast was good, cereal, fruit, ham, cheese, toast some days scrambled eggs, and of course that view.
We had a bit of a problem with the wasps when eating breakfast not just here but all over. If you ate after 9pm they had gone, or ask a waiter for some burning coffee, that seemed to help.
The walk into the small town took around 10mins, but in the heat a bit more. Glad we had the car for 7 days as it was quite hard going in the heat.
Our favorite restaurant was Fedra,, lots to choose from. Also Vigli, great stifado and Sotiris.All on the beach front. Also we went to restaurants in Thassos town, Skala Pontania and Panagia
all very good.
Visited lots of beaches in the car, which we hired from Portos Car hire in Golden beach. Paradise, Alyki, marble, Pstili Amos, Pachis to name a few. some were quite busy as they were small beaches.
My favorite has to be golden beach, so i'm glad we picked it as our holiday resort.
Also we did a boat trip on the Zeus., we could actually see the boat from our room. It was a10min walk down the the hill. Leaves most days at 10,clock. it holds sixty but there was no more than 25 when we did it. You can just turn up or book. it was busy on a Friday, that's when all the Thomsons lot go out. We even saw dolphins.
A great holiday and i hope to return again.
