Me & my wife have just returned from a weeks holiday in Thassos staying at the Marina Apartments 30/06/2013 - 7/072013 . This was our second time on the island but our first time at this accommodation . The rooms are very basic as is most accommodation in Greece so if your used to Greece this wont be a surprise if its your first time you may be surprised but don't worry it's the norm . The rooms are kept spotless you have a small tv a room safe at a cost of €10.00 per week , a fridge (ours came with a freezer that worked) kettle toastie maker a twin electric hob and small sink cupboards and all utensils required. The appliances where a little old but served their purpose . The bathroom was again very Greek and basic but spotless . We had a ground floor room that opened up onto a small patio with table and chairs beyond that a well kept garden, there is Wi-Fi at a cost tho free around bars/cafe's around the resort . As hot as it was our room kept supprisingly cool , due I guess to it being a ground floor room, so much that we didn't need the aircon that you had to pay for . Across the road was the small pool and bar along with a games room and Internet cafe type room ,this is all part of the Marina . All the staff are fantastically friendly and welcoming . My only little gripe is it can be a little noisy in the evening due to its location and if you want a quite evening o/s your room you can be distracted by music from the bar over the road .
The island is lovely and very traditional with plenty of mini markets to get provisions and lots of lovely places to eat , I can honestly say we did not have one bad meal and they where all very reasonably priced I don't think we paid over €25.00 for a meal often having five + dishes . On the main beach you have sun loungers which are free when purchasing a drink from the relevant bar/taverna which is a good idea IMO . It's worth hiring a car to explore the island and see some of the villages inland or visit some of the other beaches .We used a company called Postos which is run by an English couple and where the cheapest we found while offering all the same cover as the larger rental companies .
All in all , basic clean and relativly well equipted apartments with wonderful staff on a lovely island !
