“Ssssshhhhhh!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

It's difficult to write something that hasn't already been said about Zafira Studios. If you want peace, quiet and total chillax then this is the place for you! But don't tell too many people about it cos everyone will want to go. Thank you to Demitri, Zaffi and Yannis for an amazing holiday and we really look forward to seeing you next year. Enough said!

Just returned from 2 fantastic weeks at the Zafira and cant rate it high enough and this is the real greece with no pumping bars and neon lights
The hotel is run by Dimitri,his sister Zaffie and there Parents plus Yanniss the barman come chef who do everything they can to make your holiday perfect
The apartments themselves are as good as we have stayed in in Greece and really well appointed with comftable twin beds and a double sofa bed,and a small kitchen area with all the basics,and a decent size bathroom with a typically greek shower,a small flat screen tv with BBC world news plus a load of Greek channels,the air con was a god send and worth the 6 euros a night
The pool is a decent size with small shallow whirlpool bit ideal for children,the only very slight moan would be that there is much shade by the pool
The bar did a good selection of snacks and drink was good value with a large beer 2.5 euros,the Meze night at 7 euros an adult and 3.5 euros a child was fantastic value and great food,the BBQ night is also a great night as well and well worth 10 euros
The beach is beautifull and very shady so perfect for escaping the mid day sunshine,the sea is crystal clear and wonderfully warm,beware of sea urchins and well worth investing in cheap shoes to prevent a sting
Eating out was good value ,we paid between 25-30 euros for 2 adults and 1 child with a shared starter ,wine & soft drinks and everywhere gives you a free desert,we visited most of the tavernas all within 10 minute walk and our favourite was Zakis with a stunning location on the beach and then Gekas
There is small supermarket attached to the Gekas resturant which is a 5 min walk from the hotel which did all the basics bread,milk etc plus lovely fresh donuts and cheese pies,there is a larger supermarket on the main road a 12-15 min walk away
We hired a car for 2 days but you can do the whole island easily in a day,Thassos town is easy to reach by bus and well worth a visit
The transfer from the airport is very easy wth the coach coming with you on the ferry and only takes around 1.5 hours

We returned on the 29th July following a 1 week stay at the Zafira Studios, I have been meaning to write this review since our return but have only just found the time so here goes.

We travelled to the Zafira Studios having had read all the remarkable comments that had been posted on tripadvisor, with very high expectations, and we were not disappointed. On our arrival Dimitris was waiting to greet us at the hotel, and very swiftly took us to our rooms and left us to settle in, this made a nice change no filling in forms etc. We were allocated room 105 one of the single story suites overlooking the pool area. We were instantly impressed, the room was very spacious well decorated and very well equipped for a self catering studio. The bathroom had been refurbished and was very spacious with a large walk in shower or you could call it a wet room. I would suggest the air conditioning is an abosolute must well worth paying for, as it worked exyremely well. We thought that being so near the pool bar that it may be a bit noisy at night but once the patio door was shut you could'nt hear a thing. All in all 10/10 for the room.

The hotel itself is set in beautiful surroundings, the grounds are very well maintained, the pool is very clean and just a few feet from the beach with free sunloungers. Because the hotel is only small, there is a definate friendly atmosphere from all the staff, which, in my opinion seems to rub off on everybody and nothing was too much trouble. The food and drink at the pool bar were excellent value for money and the food was very good, all freshly prepared. The beach was very clean, however, I would invest in some aqua shoes as there are quite a lot of urchins in the sea. These can be easily seen as the water was crystal clear.

The meze and BBQ nights are very good and well worth the money, the food was plentyful and extremely tasty, and a good night had by all.

The tavernas are approximately a 5-10 min walk from the hotel, again, all being exceptional value for money and the food was excellent. We never had a bad meal in the full week we was there. The large supermarket is very well stocked and again, very reasonable.

To sum up, Thassos is a beautiful island, very relaxing and friendly. The ferry transfer is very smooth, and the zafira studios is a truly unique and wonderful place to stay. A big thank you to Dimitris, Zafi and Yannis for a wonderful holiday, we would consider you friends now and we have already booked for a two week stay next year.

Just returned from 2 week stay at Zafira. Everything about the holiday was perfect.
Hotel was everything we expected and more. Rooms were immaculate and clean. Gardens were well maintained and colourful. Always plenty of beds available around pool area. Meze and BBQ nights brilliant. The breakfast package is well worth it and zaffy cooks it to perfection.
The location is magical caught between the beach and the mountains. Plenty of places to visit, car hire advisable to take full advantage of this beautiful island-although on previous visits we have bussed it around. Lots of lovely tavernas close by and it's lovely to stroll out in the evening along the dusty road surrounded by the sound of sicadas. Other tavernas can be reached along the beach.
Now what can I say about Demitris, Zaffy and Jannis that hasn't ready been said? They are simply perfect hosts and you are made to feel so welcome. Whilst there we met the ex pats who sometimes use the bar-what a lovely bunch-very happy to help and give advise. A pleasure to meet Tara, Matthew, Ella and George. And a massive thank you to you all for the 'surprise' birthday cake at Olgas.
If you have booked the Zafira you are in for a treat. If you are considering it - go for it, you'll not regret it.
We have stayed on Thassos many times before and I can honestly say that this stay surpassed all others. Already planned our next visit!

Returned last Sunday from my annual Summer pilgrimage to Thassos. I am writing this review to say a huge "Thank You" from myself, daughter Lucy and parents-in-law to Dimitris, Zaffie, Yiannis and ALL the staff at Zafira Studios. As always, nothing was too much trouble. You guys always found the time to chat and develop our growing friendship, which we value more and more with every trip. Fabulous weather and a fabulous welcome. PLease don't change anything. Claire sends her love and can't wait to see you in a months time and we will both be back at the end of October. It'll be our turn to make a fuss of you then! Many, many thanks once again, we all had the best holiday that sort of money can buy. Bless you all, see you soon.

We have just returned from a fabulous 2 week stay at the Zafira studios. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the rooms are a very good size. There is a large walk in wet room style bathroom. The pool is lovely, clean and not too over crowded even in the busiest 2 weeks of the year. There are always free sun beds at the pool as well as at the beach which is a 30 second walk away at the most! The beach has fantastic views, is spotlessly clean and the sea is crystal clear.
The pool bar serves a range of foods and drink all day. There is a games room with a library next to the bar and a slide etc for the children in the gardens - the gardens are perfectly manicured with many olive trees and plants in the hotel grounds.

The hotel holds a meze night and a BBQ every week with traditionally cooked Greek food which is really tasty and very reasonably priced. The food is followed by a quiz etc.

The staff at the hotel Zafira are the friendliest, most accommodating people you could wish to meet. Nothing is too much trouble! A very big thank you to Dimitris, Zafira, Janis and the team who made our holiday perfect in every way.

I can't wait for our next visit!

Have just had 2 weeks at the Zafira Studies and it was perfect in every way.
It is our third visit to this beautiful,unspolit island and we can only say that Dimitri and Zafira and all the staff have just got this place right.
The standard of accommadation is very high,great wet room with power shower and always hot water,spacious room,efficient air con,comfy beds.
No problems with getting a sunbed by the pool or the free ones on the beach and the ones round the pool are the most comfortable we have had.
Everywhere is kept very clean and the bar and food is excellent and good prices.
Lots of traditional tavernas within 10 minutes walk our favourites being Lukis and Vickys on the beach.
We hired a moped from Crazy Rollers in Scala Prinos and the lady there was lovely and very easy to deal with. We got a very good rate for 12 days and enjoyed going round the island and eating out. Kazaviti is a must and also Scala Maries. Thassos town is also very special and all the tavernas are reasonably priced and excellent food.
The pool was never really busy and we can only say that meeting some of the lucky people who had become ex pats only added to our holiday. Dimitri has helped them with their house purchase through his real estate business and is such a nice fella that it is only right that they have become friends.
We were also very fortunate to meet Dimitris lovely wife,Tara and his delightful children,Ella,Matthew and little George. Tara was very helpful with any info we were looking for and the atmosphere is simply very safe,warm and friendly.
We would also like to say thank you to Dimitri for being so helpful when we received sad news from the U.K.
The Zafira studies have everything for a relaxing,high standard holiday in a great location and we will definately return.

Room Tip: Rooms by the pool have great wet rooms and easy access
