Went to Thalassa with my husband during the first week of October. From start to finish it was excellent.
We were allocated a room on the 3rd floor which had a double bed and excellent views of the pool and sea. Maids cleaned the room daily and did a good job.
We went full board, I won't go into detail as you can find that info in other reviews but the food was excellent, something for everyone. A lot of the lunch menu was similar to the evening meal but even if you had something different everyday you couldn't get through it all in 1 week.
Waiters worked hard, clearing plates away immediately and getting drinks to you quickly.
You're allowed a free meal in the a la carte restaurant once during your stay, to be honest the food in the main restaurant was better but you may as well if it's free.
Evening entertainment was good if you like watching shows etc. We probably would have got a bit bored staying for 2 weeks as even if you got taxis out on an evening there wasn't really any where to go and sample different nightlife. We met some really friendly people throughout our stay.
British people were in the minority, lots of Germans, Dutch & Russians, not that it made a difference.
Bar staff were great, really friendly and good to have a laugh.
We were drinking bottles of lager, Celita (I think) dead cheap, only worked out at around £1.30 a bottle, really nice.
We didn't go very prepared and so had only taken a bank card away with us, the nearest ATM is at the airport but this is literally across the road. Could hear planes taking off and landing but didn't bother us at all.
Weather was fantastic, and loads going on during the day time.
Went to Monastir and Souse in taxi, really busy and far too pushy so wasn't keen. Much worse than Turkey.
Port El Kantaoui was much better and the harbor very nice.
Overall, excellent holiday, hotel, weather, people, definitely go back.
