My first stay at Socrates Plaza was the start of a love affair that continues to be unabated and deepens with every visit. Like all love affairs it has its ups and downs; the sun lounger challenge every morning can be a chore for one of your party (not me) but by all accounts friendships were made and routines established...

I recently returned from my third visit to Socrates Plaza and felt compelled to write a review after seeing the one from Anna S written a few weeks ago. Having last been out there some 7 years ago (at that time I spent a glorious 3 weeks at the hotel in the company of the owner George, his lovely family... More

Negatives: The lack of sunbeds round the pool (meaning a 7 o'clock towel reservation was needed) was a real minus - someone needs to sort this out - if I book a holiday at a hotel I expect a sunbed without setting my alarm. The barbecue evening was disappointing as it was only some cooked meats in a serving tin... More

Looked at all the reviews before we booked so knew that some rooms weren't great. Our room was small but ok, the sea and pool view was lovely, the bathroom was really poor, old with a very ineffective shower with a weird shower curtain that clung to you! The bed was hard as concrete but clean. The public areas are... More

We stayed here last week of July first week of August. We had not been to Thassos before but have visited other Greek islands. We found Socrates to be probably the best place we have stayed George and his staff are amazing nothing is too much trouble for them and they all work so hard. The hotel and pool are... More

Beautiful spot, right on the beach and very safe for children. It is George and his team that are the real star of the show however. They make this hotel standout from the others! George is an excellent host. The only downside (which wasn't a downside really as we opted out!) Was Thompsons 'hard selling' their trips and excursions. We... More

We have just returned from a repeat visit to Socrates Plaza hotel. It was still as idyllic a holiday as we had last year. OK the hotel is not perfect, the beds are like concrete and the shower is a trickle, especially early evening when every guest is trying to remove sunscreen and sand at the same time, but the...

Thassos IS a beautiful island, idyllic, unspoilt and peaceful. However if you are staying in Socrates you must hire a car to make a visit worthwhile. Old villages such as Panagia are what make this island worth going to; Not this English orientated hotel. Socrates is not authentic Greek as some have claimed. I have been to many Greek Islands...

We have just returned after a 2 week stay. If you want peace and quiet this hotel is for you. It is clean and on the beach. Staff were generally helpful although communication at times could have been better. What let the holiday down was the very poor quality of the bed, it was so hard we did not sleep... More
