“Lovely Lazy Island but watch the wasps!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2009

Just returned from a 1 week stay at Filipidas Studios in Golden Beach.

The hotel is very clean and more than comfortable for what we wanted. Kitchen is basic but fridge and kettle worked fine. Safe is a bit steep at 18euro and there is no air con, we didn't need air con in early May as the nights are rather cold still. Only gripe with room was the broken shower head but otherwise fine. And the camp site in front caused no problems. And the general location is very good, 3 mins from beach and 3 mins from 2 main restuarants.

The area is very much untouched and quite spectacular. The mountain views are fantastic with the right weather. But the whole area perhaps just needs a little TLC, the roads sides could be trimmed down, the walk ways to and from the beach could just be tidied up. Don't know if this is because we went first week of season and not a lot is open yet but very close to being very beautiful.

The main beach is wonderfull, we were very lucky going first week to have some cracking weather and managed to get a place on the beach each day with no-one about 100m each side of us, brilliant for the relax in the sun that we wanted.

However the beach bought the only real downside to the holiday, The Wasps!! I'm not a fan of bees and wasps and neither is the wife and whilst lieing on the beach we would get buzzed almost every 15mins on average. This meant it was sometimes hard to really relax. We never got stung but we met some people who did. The biggest threat was walking on the sand near the water, the wasps would settle on the sand and sting you if you trod on them, just meant you had to really watch where you put your feet. I guess that during the main season this could be a big problem.

Food a little limited, we found Finekas restuarant the best out of the 2 local one that where open, not for thier food but their general wellcome and little extras, free desert and brandy every night for one!!

Overall we enjoyed Thassos but both of use agreed that we probably wouldn't return due mainly to the shear fact that there is very little there and the pesky insects!!
