My wife and I stayed at the Thalassa Hotel for 6 nights to get get some much needed sunshine and R&R. I can so both are a plenty on this side of Greece at this time of year with the weather being a balmy 28-30+ every day and nights down to 23'ish. The sea is refreshing and crystal blue around Lassi.
Hotel: I have read through the previous reviews, and to be fair the room we had didn't carry the theme the rooms in website photos. We had a ground floor Superior room, very spacious though and cool - perfect for the evenings with the outdoor furniture to overlook the bay. However, I think if we were to stay again we would ask for a second floor balcony for a more private/scenic outlook.
Breakfast is a highlight, if you are early enough you can nab a yoghurt mousse!
Beaches: Walking distance to Long Beach, and a couple of secluded beaches in the bay. If you fancy a snorkel you need to head about 2kms up the main road to the Sto Psito restaurant. You will find that beach has some pretty good snorkelling and is also sheltered so it's good for beginners/ young ones.
Restaurants/bars - pretty much all in Lassi we ate at and are all very reasonable, and there are bars also e.g Trentis bar great for the sunset) and Eden has a dancefloor if you keen to stay out past grappa hour.
Tours: The hotel can book tours etc if you need, we did a boat trip and it was easily organised for the next day.
Fitness: I didn't use the gym, but instead ran to the lighthouse and back (about 12km). Very safe on the road as there are not many cars, same road as the Sto Psito restaurant.
Airport: very accessible can be at the airport in 20mins. However, we found the experience outbound a bit disastrous vs the inbound experience as it is a quite small airport with 2-3 flights every hour, it can get a little crazy!
Back to the hotel, our overall experience as a base for our holiday, lazing by the pool, local food out and about, location to beaches, we would recommend this hotel and be back for sure.
