“Better than "Average" but not "Very Good"!”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

On the whole a positive experience of this accomodation. It is a friendly family run establishment. It is currently used by Thomson and has mainly British holidaymakers staying there.

Whilst it is self-catering the owners provide a range of bar snacks which were popular. It has a pool area with enough sunbeds to meet demand. The pool could have been cleaner but this may be because the "poolside shower" is not poolside!

Air-con (very efficient unit) and safe hire were reasonably priced as extras. Also, a very well stocked book library. A supermarket and a bakery are less than 5 minutes walk away. Whilst the town centre (agora) is a 15 minute walk there are many excellent tabernas and bars nearby.

Also, on the last day you can put your luggage on the coach and walk to the ferryport, which is 5 minutes away.

The only real disappointment was the room although it was cleaned daily. The toilet/wash area consisted of a toilet at an angle to accomodate the shower tray which meant that you had to contort yourself to go to the toilet to avoid putting one foot in the tray or pressing against the wash basin. To have a shower, because there was no shower curtain, you had to lift the toilet seat and move the toilet roll to prevent the getting wet, and afterwards use the "Jaycloths" we brought to mop up the pool of water on the floor of the now windowless steamroom. The bed was also very hard but the balcony was nice.

We've been to Greece 5 times together and both of us many more times previously. Whilst inter-railing in 1990 I stayed in a room in Corfu Town that was serviced by a "squat toilet" therefore I have no issue with the toilet paper situation. However, when you are paying the prices per person now charged it is no longer the case to say "it's Greece what do you expect?". We stayed in Stoupa last year and the bathroom there was better than mine at home at a cheaper room rate.

Finally, do not be put off by my little rant although other reviews do mention the same problem, however overall the positives outweigh the negatives.

Room Tip: From the other reviews it would appear that the rooms with 2 balconies might have a more spacious to...

My wife and I stayed at Thetis for a week in the beginning of August 2013. Cannot complain. It was a great place. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. There was no messing. We turned up, all our rooms were open. No queuing in reception to get keys etc.. Bought extra air con and safe key. Wifi was free around the pool. Our room was 116, right next to the reception, so we had a 5 star signal in there as well. Bonus. Bar snacks and drinks available all day until late in the evening. Nice causal seating area at the back of the pool near the bar, in the trees. Very pleasant. Pool was good. All in all it was excellent. I would say 5 mins walk to the supermarket, under 10 to the sea, and nearby restaurants. 20 mins walk to the heart of the town/old port etc... Definitely to be recommended. Staff all great too. The only slight negative I can find is the bathroom was a little tired. But that is really struggling to criticise. I would go back without question.

Room Tip: 116. Ground floor. Next to reception. Don't let that bother you. No one goes in the reception. S...

We stayed at the Thetis apartments for two weeks. It had a convenient location for thassos town but far enough away to be quiet at night if needed. Very close to the ferry (which wasn't noisy) and about a 10 - 15 minute to the old harbour although you are closer to the new part of town. We went self catering and good supermarkets nearby and the best one next to spiros's bar where you could get most things. We had one of the few non balcony rooms but this was pleasant and quiet. The pool was a little small but that seems to be the case with all the other accommodation! The garden setting was very nice in a nice olive grove setting and friendly staff serving snacks etc. Also well located if you hired a car as you could get on the out of town road without having to weave through thassos old town. Air con is priced separately and would set aside around 100 euros if you need air con and a security box for two weeks which is standard in most self catering places (air con is 6 euros per day). Overall a good location for your trip and very friendly family run place.

Room Tip: Request a high balcony room at the back to get best view

Just back from a week staying in Thetis just on the outskirts of the main town. Our holiday choice was influenced by previous reviews and I'm very happy to say that it lived up to expectation. The appartments are spacious and clean - we even had two balconies with good views to the sea and mountains. The small but adequate pool is great for a cool down and the tables and chairs beneath the olive trees offer a welcome respite from the searing sun whilst sipping ouzo and lemonade and tucking into a greek salad. If you're thinking of hiring a car DON'T - hire a jeep instead. We hired a jeep for two days and had a wild time bumping through mountain tracks to hidden villages as well as finding those hidden coves and beaches around the more rugged coastline. The map they give you is more of an estimate of where you can go, but this is a holiday afterall and adventures are a plenty on this wonderful island. We loved Theologos with its winding narrow streets and stunning views from balconied restaurants. The water taxi from Thassos to Golden Beach was good. For 10E you get a trip along the coastline and about 4 hours on the beach. The water is clear and the bay beautiful even though it can get quite busy.

Stayed in Thetis a number of times over the last few years, the second time we stayed (after a two year gap), we were welcomed by name! Impressed? I think so. She even remarked that we would be staying in the same room. Staying round the corner at Villa Eden this year as we were too late to book in but we pop round in the day for a couple of beers, a salad and a swim (not necessarily in that order). If we meet Costas or Thetis in the street, it's all handshakes or kisses... it's just a nice friendly place.

The apartments are on the outskirts of the main town, in a residential area, near the ferry port. There were extremely clean and the olive gardens around the pool are lovely for shaded seating. It's a level walk to the old harbour, which took about 15 minutes, although there are excellent restaurants near the ferry port. Convenient for the bus station and I'd recommend using the local buses, which were cheap and reliable. A holiday to suit people who want to relax and watch local life going on around them.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms at the back had lovely views over the mountains rather than the pool, which was bett...

I have been home from holiday for just over a week and all I can say is.. I wish I was still in the beautiful island of Thassos, staying at the Thetis. Myself, my sister and my mum stayed there for 2 weeks from 2nd June until 16th June and had one of the best holidays we have had for a long time!!!

The journey from Kavala airport to Thassos is so easy and stress free and the Thetis appartments are wonderful. Basic but clean, comfortable, out of the way but easy to get to Thassos town (5 min slow walk!) - we loved it!!!!

The family are wonderful! They cannot do enough for you and are such a happy, hard working and lovely family. I would love to go again next year but I have heard rumours Thomson are not going to go to the Thetis in 2014. To Thomson I say ....STUDIDITY!!! The amount of returners we meet was unbelieveable! If Thomson do not resign I think they will find holiday makers going independent to Thassos and the Thetis - I know I will!

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for 3 beds when you book if you are 3 women or men traveling together. When we got...
