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

This hotel was recommended to me but I was warned that it was basic.... Well... It was not basic... It has been refurbished and is now very modern and very clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location couldn't be better. Step out of the pool and take a couple of steps down onto the beach. The sea... More

We ve stayed to Socrates Plaza in the begining of July, for the first time, It s our second time in Thassos island. Great place with fantastic beaches nice people and traditional villages. The hotel is just 50 meters from the sea, the stuff is very friendly. We enjoyed our holiday very much. I can propose a good taverna "Nest"... More

It is a lovely hotel and should this be your first visit, you probably would think it lovely. But after a few visits, we felt the hotel had failed what we hoped to be a great holiday. George the owner is lovely but we found this year he was more interested in his phone and the young Greek girls that... More

Skala Prinou is not exactly a village. It is a small port strip with few restaurants and rooms. Socrates Plaza is probably the most convenient place to stay in this location. It is located close to the Kavala ferry port. The beach is accessed directly through the pool area; both can be used without changing the seating. Above all the... More

This was our 8th visit to Socrates and we still love it, however the bathrooms are in need of refurbishment and updating, the wife said that a shelf would be useful. We have always loved it on the decking but it could do with some sort of shading as it can get very hot and there is no way of... More

We arrived on Sunday 22nd June and were immediately made welcome by George the owner. We had booked a larger family room in the block... More
