“We must be missing something?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Having just returned from a weeks break in Thassos staying at the Aberdeen Studios, my wife and I are still confused at how the place gets so many "great" reviews.
We have stayed at many places in Greece, and perhaps have been spoilt with previous accommodations & hosts, but we missed all that is said on TA regards Aberdeen Studios, (perhaps because we weren't in the clique?).
My one word summary is shabby. The pool was old and weary, the rooms were dated and not clean, (many cobwebs & much dust under the beds etc), the bathroom was dingy, there just didn't seem to be any general maintenance being done, (sweeping round the pool, real old sunbeds, stained mugs provided, frayed towels, old stained threadbare bathmat). Frequent Greece travel means we don't expect 5* but cleanliness is surely a basic? We booked through Thomson & expected more from their standard.
Also the location is on a busy road which is noisy all day and night, and also it is easily a good 30min walk into the best part of town, (Old Harbour). Thassos itself is nice with something for everyone, great little beach, (Ammos beach bar), good transport links around island and really friendly locals, some good eating places. Go to Thassos yes, stay away from Aberdeen if you want my view, we just didn't get it.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 - 4 are road side, but are cooler & out of sun

we were at the Aberdeen at the same time as the Thassos Newbies and Irene and agree with everything they have said. This was our second visit and we had a wonderful three week holiday. Vasilis and Carol are just great hosts and could not do enough for us. Zoe who cleans the rooms and works behind the bar was very so helpful and friendly. We just felt so relaxed around the pool and we were in the company of some great people. Being there for three weeks we saw people come and go and such was the relaxed and friendly atmosphere new arrivals were soon part of the crowd. We are returning in May next year. There not much more I can say about this wonderful place.

We have just returned from an excellent 2 week holiday and would agree with everything written in other reviews. The pool area was lovely and quiet during the day but fun at night to return to after a meal out. The service offered by Carol and Vasillis is superb. During the holiday I lost a wallet with lots of cards and money in. Vasillis insisted on helping to look for it, paying the garage for petrol we had put in the car PRIOR to finding out we had lost the wallet and then helping out at the police station. He really made sure that he had done everything he could to help us. During our visit, he gave us tastes of his own olives, fresh pears from the tree outside our apartment, and watermelon. Once, he even made us a plate of the garlic bread that he has for his own breakfast to illustrate how good it was - he wanted us to try everything - his coffee (Only the best), his tobacco ( grown in Greece) fruit ( from the garden) and so on. His hospitality has no bounds - he took us out for coffee, showed us some 'suspicious' places ( which turned out to be a coffee bar and a chapel!) and then we got to see him play too!
Carol made sandwiches for us for our return journey _ I recommend them!
I now understand why so may people return each year and although we may not, that would only be because we like to do something different every year.

Room Tip: Room 11 has the afternoon sun so the room gets quite warm - nothing that air con can't deal with...

Have just got home after 2 weeks staying at the Aberdeen Studios, Thassos. Carol and Vasilis (The Boss) made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. We have had one of the best holidays and met some really lovely people, there was never a dull moment and Vasillis' wednesday night production is just mad (but lots of fun) something not to be missed....The pool is lovely and there is plenty of sunbeds for all the guests. The pool bar at night is just such good fun. The rooms are basis but extremely clean thanks to Zoe (who also works behind the bar in the evenings). Food is also available and you must try Carol's soup its delicious. I would definately recommend the Aberdeen Studios and we shall return.

Chose Thassos as the place to be for our Pearl wedding after visiting around 10 yrs ago. Nothing much had changed.Lovely authentic Greece at its best.Now for the Aberdeen..Very basic but everything you need.Great pool area. 80% repeat guests apparently but we didn't feel as though we were treated any different. All the staff were great and Vasillis a real character.We weren't part of the pool bar scene at night but didn't feel under pressure to join in the entertainment. Other guests were friendly on the whole. Hope to go back next year. Maybe not to the Aberdeen.A bit more comfort would be nice then again we had a great time with plenty of laughs so who knows.All in all i would recommend.

We have just spent an amazing week at the Aberdeen Studios. From our initial welcome by Carole as we stepped off the bus we had a holiday to be remembered for its relaxing days by the lovely pool shaded from the hot July sun when needed, by olive trees with a cold beer or frappe on hand at any time. Carole's husband Vasilis also goes that extra mile to ensure that guests have a good holiday. On our first evening he took us to a lovely restaurant (Mesogeos) introduced us to the owners and then even came by later to give us a lift back "home'. My husband's birthday was the following day and that night when most guests returned to the pool bar after their evening out a lovely birthday cake along with a silly hat was produced! I can honestly say that we have never experienced hospitality like that of the Aberdeen Studios anywhere else.
The studios themselves are spotless thanks to Zoe who also works behind the bar in the evenings and also plays her own part in ensuring guests are well looked after with her knowledge of the island.
Cannot fault a thing and can't wait to return, hopefully next time for longer.
