Just returned from a really enchanting holiday at this hotel in the stunning Island of Kefalonia. I have to agree with the majority of the reviews here and the hotel is not really quite a 4* yet but heading there. For the first couple of nights we were allocated a standard room with breathtaking views....only the room itself was pretty basic ( hence the name Standard) and the shower pretty bad. One of the glass shower doors came off and it could have been dangerous if a small kid was in there. Thankfully nothing happened and we simply advised reception. They took care of it as you would expect any hotel to. We were then upgraded at no extra cost to a suite in the main block and I fully recommend anyone to book one of these rooms. It's worth the extra money I guess if all the "standard" rooms are decorated the way our initial bedroom was. I have no words to describe the double shower in the suite: STUNNING! Unfortunately there was a leaking fridge which was positioned right under the safe and was overheating badly, so if you have to leave anything electrical in the safe, like a mobile phone, camera or iPad, make sure you move the fridge to one side. We don't expect anything to be perfect but I cannot fault the hotel for these minimal things that you can live with and put right. Angela is exactly as everyone describes her and I would like to give a special thank you also to the two girls at reception, one in particular (blonde hair) whose name I don't remember unfortunately, but she is super sweet and always very helpful and polite!!!! We had a great stay at Thalassa Hotel and will recommend it to family and friends. Only one small incident spoiled our expectations which wasn't anything to do with our stay at the hotel: the trip on the private speedboat recommended by Angela and two clients of the hotel.The same one Stanley (previous feedback) refers too. It did not turn out to be what was expected, unlike the other review here. I had a chance to discuss with Stanley and other people at the hotel who took the same trip, what went on during their trip and compare it with ours, and found out that we missed out on a couple of sightings + we were dumped on a beach were they were having a party "Ibiza style" with extremely loud music! It is true that Nikolas ( the captain) asked us if we wanted to go to this party because his family and friends were there and we said yes (we simply did not want to be rude) but we did not discuss being dumped there, having to take a taxi back to Lassi which costed more than if he left us at Argostoli, where our trip commenced. Not how you expect to end a romantic boat trip at sea. If you happen to take a trip on his speed boat, make sure you discuss in advance what you would like to see...apparently there is a nice taverna, only reachable by boat, where he normally takes people for lunch......well we did not get to go there unfortunately...and it is not true that you will be alone with him on the boat, but his girlfriend will be there too. Lovely woman.....but expect NOT to be just the two of you! All in all...Kefalonia and Thalassa hotel make a good combo for the perfect, romantic holiday!
