This was an excellent hotel and I would really recommend it for anyone thinking of a holiday in Thassos.
After reading some of the less-than-generous reviews, we were a bit nervous about Villa Pipinis, but in the end we were delighted with our week long stay. Not sure what has happened in the time between these being written and now, but I certainly didn't experience or recognise any of the negative aspects highlighted by earlier reviewers.
The hotel is a small-ish family run place, on the edge of the main town (but maximum 10 min gentle walk to the centre). The hotel fronts onto the road, but not noisy and it has a really pleasant garden and a decent sized and absolutely clean pool if you can't be bothered to go to any of the nearby beaches! The buildings look well maintained and the paths are swept down each day.
The rooms themselves are exceptionally clean and well maintained, and have a shower room and basic kitchen facilities (fridge, hot plate etc). The A/C is effective and free (despite some of the moans below)! The pool is open all day and there is plenty of room to splash around. There is parking at the back of the hotel if you need it. The beds are perfectly comfortable (and full sized) and the furniture in the bedrooms is as you would expect.. really not sure why anyone would have an issue with any of the fixtures and fittings!
The welcome was very efficient and we were given helpful directions for beaches and tavernas to check out. Cheery smiles and greetings from the small staff who work at the hotel each day, and whatever time we went out (and with teenage kids this can be quite late in the day) whenever we got back the rooms had been serviced and left clean and tidy.
Once again, earlier reviews seem to be of a different place and I recommend Villa Pipinis very highly as an option for a Thassos holiday! My only (minor) issue is that they don't take credit/debit cards and setting up the booking with bank transfer was a bit painful...
