“Great location and beach, but...”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

We were just visiting the resort were our friends spend a week and ...boy! they spend!
The beach is splendid, soft powdered sand, clean water, wooded mountains surrounding the golf, a playing ground for kids, shower to wash away the sand, WiFi.
But is not for free, guest or not and the cost of 2 sunbeds and an umbrella is 7 euros per day. Also the cost of drinks is soaring - a small beer is 3 euros. For instance at Golden Beach we had 3 cafe frappes, 2 sunbeds an umbrella and WiFi for 8 euros in front of Gold Sands Hotel and a
They don't provide drinks in the evening (half board) and the lunch option is the taverna with medium prices.
The resort is located on a terraced hill and most of the bungalows are quite remote from beach and restaurants and not for peoples with legs impediments.
So, you have to consider extra money for this kind of expenses.
If you have bread leftovers at your table, the deer flock is waiting for your kids to feed them. Is fun!

Room Tip: The resort is cooler and darker than others and some rooms have bunk beds which kids love.

Makryammos Bungalows is a wonderful place to stay with kids and a paradise for parents. If looking for hot sun, a clean beach, quiet rooms and good food, it should fulfill your wish of perfect holidays. If you have or rent a car, you will also be able to travel around the island. You can also try one of the numerous beaches on the island. You can burn the calories piled up from the buffet hiking the many paths or swimming in the clear blue sea.
The numerous staff provides the smiles and the service that will make perfect holidays.
Tip for a great walk from the hotel : The town of Limenas is a nice place to have a drink or dinner and 40 min away with the unforgettable hiking path looking down to the sea (turn right after the Romantica on the road, it's longer than walking down the road and without cars). You will enter the city through the port right after the antic theater. Magnificent.

Me and my family we are coming for 30 years. It`s the great place with great service and amazing people :) The sea is so clear, its not a dirty beach MUST TO SAY THAT, its so wide, tidy and clean, the soft sand and the most important that You can relax without any loud around You. It`s the paradise resort. Especially its great for families with children because there is a small Zoo with so nice animals and playground for children.

Makryammos Bungalows is a great place, next to the sea but also to the mountains. The magnificent view combined with the weather and the stuff is enough to believe that u are in heaven. The beach its so clean and tidy , with the soft sand all thanks to the man who is cleaning it every day. We also where very impressed with the staff from the Main Bar and Taverna, they are really taking care of you; not to mention that the morning breakfast is so full, you really have a lot to choose from. In the evening we where shocked to see that they are making outside grill.....and so on. Overall its the perfect place for the perfect holiday.

Room Tip: any room will be great

Makryammos Bungalows is situated in what could easily be one of the most beautiful places on earth, no hyperbole.
A magnificent bay fringed by wooded hills where marble caves open in the green; the sand is soft and sparkling (you can find actual marble pebbles), the water is calm and clean, with a bit of floatsam close to the shore (because of the looming trees) but perfect a few meters ahead. The seabed slopes gently and the water is shallow for several meters, which is perfect for kids.
Unfortunately, not all is well in paradise: the bungalows are indeed as basic and bare as the other reviews describe them, thou they are impeccably clean; the bathrooms are dingy and unwelcoming. They are not dirty, but simply too shabby for what is after all a 200+Eur a night resort.
The pool looks like a soviet era monstrosity, and while the grounds are green and well kept, the open buffet area is cold and noisy, and the food is repetitive and unimaginative (the food is better at the Tavern, but for about 50Eur for two).
Finally, the service is erratic, made by eastern europeans for eastern europeans, without the attention and care that you would expect in Western Europe or Turkey: some kids do their best, but others are indifferent or actually rude.
All in all, Makryammos is in need of some investment and a conscious choice to go just a step upscale: it does not seem in a hurry to do so, thou, as its business model is clearly working very well, being sold out most of the season and with apparently satisfacted customers. It is a pity, because with only so much effort, the place could be an unmissable jewel in Greece.
We did love our time there, and we will most likely return, despite our misgivings: the peacocks roaming the ground, the feeding of the deers, the trampolin in the water are an irresistible attraction for kids, and the place is simply too beautiful. We just wish we could suggest it more wholehartedly.

We stayed in Makryammos for a week in August. We enjoyed this 'life on the beach' resort. We had a great time swimming in the amazing sparkling waters of the sea in front of the hotel. Our bungalow was nice, the food was good and the staff friendly. Thasos is a beautiful green island and we enjoyed using Makryammos occasionally as the basis of various trips to other beaches around the island.

I stayed at this resort in August with my wife and two children aged 3 and 7. The resort is set around five minutes drive from thassos town, or 5 euro in a taxi. You could walk but it would be up a steep hill with no recognised footpath. This would be very demanding on young children in the intense heat. There is a supermarket near the bottom of the hill which you could utilise to stock up on items which are more expensive or not available in the resort shop. The resort is set in what can only be described as idyllic surroundings. It consists of stone bungalows on the hillside surrounded by trees. As mentioned on previous reviews the bungalows at the top of the hill would would result in a more lengthy walk to the beach or facilities. We were lucky and stayed in room 234 which was a classed as a superior room and was a two minute walk to the pool and beach. The main bars and restaurant was about 3-4 minutes away. The view from this room was good with a limited sea view due to the trees. I would imagine that most of the rooms would have worse or similar views due to the trees. I would be surprised if any rooms apart from the beach side rooms had totally clear sea views. The rooms themselves were basic but clean with twin beds, bunkbeds, fridge, tv, and air conditioning. As stated previously these rooms could do with a refurbishment but are more than adequate if luxury is not your main focus. I believe only the superior rooms have bunkbeds with other standard rooms having twin and then additional put up beds. The rooms do not benefit from a separate bedroom. The pool again is not the most luxurious but is fuctional and clean as is directly on the beach. There are umbrellas and sunbeds which are free. We found that the usual routine of people reserving sunbeds with towels was in existence, but you were able to get two beds and an umbrella if you were there before 8.30am. We had no alternative than to place our towels and then go to breakfast. There is a pool bar and a life guard. Drink prices at the bar appear to fluctuate for the same drinks, so be aware of what you should be paying. There are menu with prices at the bar. The beach is clean golden sand with sunbeds and umbrellas at a cost of 7 euro. The sea is clean and clear blue which is shallow and ideal for young children. There is a trampoline in the deeper water for the older kids/adults. The breakfast and evening meal is excellent with a number of choices which are restocked without fail. Restaurant staff are excellent, and you can purchase drinks at the table. There is a main bar and a more intimate sophisticated bar on the hill overlooking the beach/bay. This provides excellent lovely views in the evening as the sunsets. Drinks are expensive in my opinion. 2.20 euro for a coke, 3.60 euro for a beer, and 16 euro for a bottle of rose wine, 7 euro for a cocktail. The shop provides limited items but no coffee, no cans/bottles of coke, no sugar to compliment the kettles in the room. To get round this make use of the supermarket in thassos and stock up on these items at a reduced price. Overall if you are looking for a holiday set in idyllic surroundings with a lovely beach and clean sea which is ideal for children, then this is the place for you. There are peacocks which roam around the grounds and an area which has deers. The rooms are not luxurious but are functional and clean. This may not appeal to people who are looking for the lap of luxury. Request a room lower down the hill to avoid the steep walk to the beach/facilities. Bring some insect repellant and bite cream as there are a number of misquotes and sand flies around. However these minor things do not detract from what was a fantastic holiday experience. Enjoy!!!!!
