This was one of the best holidays we have ever had - certainly the best accommodation we have had in years of travelling to Greece. It is in a beautiful location, with its own private beach in a lovely small cove, gently sloping into the sea, so perfect for all ages. We must have stayed at a different hotel to some of the other reviewers, as the food was wonderful, and there was a different wide selection every night; we were there for two weeks, and there was no fixed pattern to the buffet (ie. no case of "it's Wednesday so it must be moussaka").
I agree that there could be more entertainment of an evening to encourage you to stay at the bar after dinner, but what they did provide was fine. The drinks at the bar are more expensive than in town, but not hugely so, and certainly not enough to stop you using it.
The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful, and all seem to have basic knowledge of a number of languages (English, German, Russian, Romanian etc), so anyone could stay there without worrying about the language.
The cost of the sunbeds on the beach was quite surprising, as the beach is private for the hotel guests, and they could maybe look at reducing this. There are free sunbeds around the pool, but the problem with these is the selfishness of other guests who "reserve" them with a towel at 7am, but then don't turn up to use them until well after 4pm. Perhaps the hotel could intorduce a rule that it you are not present for more then an hour, then your belongings are removed to the floor!
Thassos itself is a wonderful island, and I would recommend anyone to visit. If you go, you must spend time in Thassos Town, and a day at Aliki Beach, with its perfect setting and abundance of history/ruins is a must.
In all, nowhere is perfect, but the Makryammos Bungalows come as close as you could get within the price range.
