Reviewed July 30, 2013

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...

Room Tip: We had first floor rooms overlooking the garden, but ground floor rooms have direct access to the ga...

I've been to Villa Pipinis last week with a couple of friends and we were very disappointed with the choice made. Impossible to sleep in very small tiny beds, we've been asked 5 euros for using the safe box, the little swimming pool was dirty and above all the main gate was open 24 hours so that anybody from the street could enter the place.

Not a bottle of water was put in fridge for us upon arrival, actually not even the owner was there to meet and greet upon our arrival we didn't know who to refer to..!

The island is very disappointing too , one of the worst place I've been . All the sites in internet I looked at mentioned marvellous beaches and places but you travel for 150 kms to encounter two dirty beaches and above all the beautiful golden sand mentioned are actually covered by a terrible huge amount of cigarettes and dirt. Mind you, the prices are very high though . Don't get misled by this place at all as it's a loss of time to go there, nothing to see nor to do. We caught very fast the first ferry who took us back to mainland.! Bye bye thassos !

We have been very disappointed by this place. The pictures shown in their website are quite misleading. The rooms are tiny, very tiny and the beds are perfect for 4 years old children not for people of normal average shape. I have never seen bed so small and uncomfortable. The bathroom is a hole and the shower doesn't have curtains so water spreads all around. We needed to use the safe ( a metal box with key, nothing electronic) and they ask 5 euro for that poor thing. We couldn't sleep well because of the noise of the old small fridge and because of the nasty mosquitoe all around. We had to leave very fast and we'll never go there again. Do not believe what websites say about Thassos: it's a very big islands with very few and small beaches. We drove 150 km in order to circumnavigate it and we found only two decent small beaches. Prices are high everywhere, God knows why. Don't go there

Villa Pipinis is very quiet and have a cosy garden. The rooms are small and the the beds could be changed.
The kitchen equipment is small and not easy to make any dinner!
Aircondition in the room against fee.(50euro for a week)
But if you forget this, the location is good and the staff is very friendly. Nice cleaning every day!
It is about 5 min.walkingdistance to the beach east of the hotel. This beach is small and nice, the water is wonderful.
From the hotel to the citycenter is only 5 min. walk.

All in All; A ok place to spend a week or two.

Beautiful hotel .. Extremeliy quiet...... Dont go here with children, they dont tolerate noise or play. And the swimming pool is only for swimming back and forth..-this is more a hotel for couples, or older people........... The hotel is located in Thasos city and its a 10 min walk to the shopping street , and all the restaurants. The hotel is very beautiful and everything is very neat.
Rooms are very clean, but small and bad furnished. its no shower curtain, sofa or table and chairs inside the room. there is no bar or serving in hotel. supermarket is very near.
