After many years of travelling independently around The Greek Islands, we were very apprehensive as we left for this holiday, booked through Thomson. We should not have worried at all. The hotel perfect for us with "The Gorgeous George", "Cute Constantinos" and all the staff a joy to be with. Their greetings were always so genuine and accompanied by beaming smiles.
We personally found that by paying the excess for an apartment was right for us but many preferred the rooms overlooking the beach with a great sea view.
We do not normally get involved in karaoke evenings or organized BBQs and quiz nights but after the fun we had at both during the first week, we were certainly there for the second - and ready for more!. George presented the events very professionly and appeared to enjoy the evenings along with us.
Scala Prinos is a busy small village which is happily still very Greek, unlike so many islands where the tourists have taken over. Some of this is due to the ferries from Kavala calling in several times a day keeping a buzzing but not intrusive atmosphere. There are small shops conveniently situated, several excecllent tavernas and Kostas at our pre-dinner bar, who serves a gererous ouzo. .One day we went out with Yannis of Real Holidays, He is a man who so loves his island and so knowledgable about it. You can choose where you want to visit and he gives you a wonderful personal day out. Being able to take this day out with Yannis before hiring a car, I feel sure would give you increased pleasure driving and give you good direction where to go.
As you can guess Jim and I enjoyed Thassos and our enthusiasm has spurred on some friends to book a holiday at the Socrates in August. Hope anyone who decides to visit Scala Prinos and Socrates Plaza have as good a time as Jim and Terry!
