Thetis Apartments And Studios
Reviewed 29 May 2014

I am surprised that Thetis has so many 5/5 reviews. The rooms are fine, gardens and pool area very nice and the location good for access to Thassos Town. But the bathroom needed attention. Ours had crumbling walls/ceiling; no shower curtain resulting in wet loo roll, toilet, bin etc; a mouldy shower hose which I ended up cleaning myself and a trickle of a shower. Thetis has a lot going for it but it is not worth a rating of 5/5.

Stayed at Thetis for one week, w/c 19th May. Our apartment was one of the refurbished ones, benefitting from two balconies - one overlooking the road and one overlooking the mountains. Kitchen facilities are adequate but no permanent hob and no toaster (though we found a restaurant in the old harbour selling beautiful thick toasted crusty bread and honey for breakfast). The apartments are set in amongst the ancient olive trees, with olive groves to either side. This gives the whole place a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The small pool is ideal for the number of apartments, but I agree with another reviewer in that it could be kept a bit cleaner - floating leaves etc. not removed regularly. Thetis and her family are wonderful hosts and cannot do enough to help, although they also recognise when to leave you alone to get on with your relaxing! The grounds and apartments are kept very clean and the site is within easy walking distance of the ferry port and new harbour. We also walked daily to the old harbour. Only basic snacks provided at the site but plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. Thetis has many return visitors - we met several of them on our visit, some returning for the 15th time, others for the 12th and the third couple for the 7th time - says it all! Would consider a return visit if the world was not so big and had so many other places to visit!!!

Room Tip: The first floor rooms seem to have more privacy.

Hadn't self catered for a while but the Thetis apartments were comfortable, well kept and set in a nice location being handy for both new and old port areas. Nice to sit out on your own balcony for breakfast and in the evening for your pre prandial ouzo. Theti and the gang were friendly and unassuming and our stay was very enjoyable.

Room Tip: All rooms seem fine. We stayed in room 117 the balcony of which had a side view of the sea to the ne...

We found the thetis an ideal base for exploring this beautiful island the accomodation was basic but very comfortable yes the roda could be busy at times but you are close to the port and in a town sometimes the price you have to pay for a central location. We had a brilliant time and would definitely return we couldn't find fault.

just got back from staying at the Thetis studios for 2 weeks in August;All I can say is a big thank you to Thetis and her family for making our holiday memorable;as it was our 35th wedding Anniversary during our stay.Our room was lovely and clean,and we had the good fortune of having 2 balconies,with panoramic views of the mountains,olive groves, and the harbour.The pool was a refreshing way to cool off, and there was always plenty of sun loungers available.The pool bar prices were on par with the rest of the island, in fact we were very suprised how cheap it was to eat out.There were a couple of tavernas,that were a only few minutes walk, both served good food, and then if you fancied a change,there was a 20 minute walk to the town, where there was lots of eating places.We had never visited Thassos before,only some of the larger Greek islands,but we loved how traditional it was.We will be going back to the Thetis for sure.

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...
