Just returned from a week at Green Sea Studios. We got the 6.05 flight and were at the apartments by 12.30 UK time.
When we arrived the rooms were not ready and the cases had not arrived. As a previous reviewer explained, you leave the cases at the airport in Kavala and they are transported separately to the studios and dumped outside the gates! Luckily we had packed swimwear and towels in our hand baggage so could use the pool on arrival. While we waited my partner watched the Grand Prix on the TV behind the restaurant - this was the only time we saw that tv on and althought there are tvs in the rooms they are Greek tv only - not that we came on holiday to watch tv!
Our cases arrived an hour or so later and the room was ready soon after. The room was spacious for 2 and had the minimum equipment - toaster, electric kettle, 2 cooking rings. The shower room was the best we have had in Greece - even had a shower cubicle! Air con was 40 for a week and safe in the room 15 for a week.
The cleaner had an attitute and some days the room wasn't cleaned at all and bins not emptied till 7.30pm. Sheets changed once in a week stay - the norm I think?
We were a bit disappointed with the food at the restaurant on site - and also with food in general in the resort - we did like the ALKYONH though which is on the back road opposite the Albatros supermarket.
Prices - about 7 or 8 euros for stifado, kleftiko etc. Large draught Mythos- 2 euros, Gin and tonic - 4 euros, litre of local wine 6 euros. Sun beds are free at the hotel but on the beach they are 7 eiros a day including a parasol. Sea was very gentle most days. Rep said taxi to Thassos Town is 12 eoros. In Thassos we ate at The Twins which was good.
We got a bus to Thassos town (1.5 each way) and to Pagania (1.40 each way) One way tickets can be bought from Albatross supermarket (and others) and then buy return ticket in destination. In Thassos town get ticket at bus station which is opposite wher you are droppped off and is a good place to wait for bus as there are seats in the shade and ice creams etc.
Panagia well worth a trip - head up towards the church and fountain - very picturesque. Buses aremodern with air con.
Return journey. We had to leave our cases outside the gate at 6.45am and we had to get coach at 7.45 down the road a short way. Cases were waiting at airport but this was a good system as saved carrying them on/off ferry. Ferry trip about 30 mins - we got the 9 am ferry for our flight at 12.15 home to Gatwick. The Birmingham and Manchester flights were 1 and 2 hours later .
All in all it was a very relaxing resort - rather busier than the blurb had led us to believe - the food was a bit uninspiring and bland compared to othe islands we have visited.
If you have children there is a fun fair etc at the harbour end of the resort and a little "train" that runs through the resort.
We enjoyed but will not be going back.
