Had such a lovely holiday, best thing about this hotel is the views - absolutely stunning. All of the rooms face the view as does the breakfast area/garden. They all also have balconies/terraces. The owners are very sweet and helpful, very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is from 8:30-10 and they have a bar with toasties/salads available through until the evening (closed for a few hours in the afternoon).
Travelled with Thompson as a package and the rate is fantastic for what you get from the hotel. It's such a bonus to have breakfast included and a great way to start the day overlooking the views. Breakfast was a buffet of toast, eggs, jams, cheese, ham, yoghurt, fruit, granola, tea & coffee, juices.
The room was small but perfectly formed, all nice and clean, maid came once a day and towels replenished once during the week. Hair dryer, fridge, safe and TV were in the room. I think there was air-con which you can pay for if you want it but we didn't need it.
10-15 minute walk down the the beach and tavernas, the beach is gorgeous and very large. The walk isn't as bad as some people have made out, it's not like you're in any hurry, just take it easy and have a nice stroll! We walked all the way along the beach but the nicest end of it was definitely ours as it gets a bit rocky down the other end. Apparently it was the first week of the season when we went so not all of the shops/bars/tavernas were open yet but that was fine as there were enough for us and they all have so much variation. It was very quiet when we went which suited us perfectly. There are some watersport activities on offer further down the beach and there's lots of other things to explore on the island. We took a boat trip excursion from Thompson which was such good fun and a chance to see even more beautiful sights, they took us to a couple of other secluded beaches which really was paradise, swimming in crystal clear turquoise waters and white sand.
Weather was sunny and hot mostly with one cloudy day which we used to walk to a nearby town through the hills.
I've recommended the Blue Bay and Thassos to all of my friends/family who want to get away from their past paced life. Thank you Blue Bay!!!
