Stayed her first week of September, everything it said in the brochure plus we had good weather, we hired a car for 2 days and saw the whole island. Went across on ferry to Kavala on mainland - very nice day out. Restaurants close by and we found The Nest - amazing traditional Greek food at amazing low prices
Exploring the west side of Thassos

Many have said how friendly and helpful are the staff of this hotel. They are correct. The hotel is perfectly placed for the sandy beach and shoreline. The swimming is very good for children since the beach slopes gently and is still only waist height 30 metres out. We had a family room, 405, which is on the second storey at the west end of the block facing the main hotel building. This room had the advantage of direct sunshine onto the balcony (north facing but also open to the west) after 15.00hr. It also had the advantage of being quiet, being remote from the main hotel block and inevitable bar music. Food basic but good for price. The area offers plenty of walks along the coast both ways and inland. The inland walks are not well-signposted, but there is a walking map of Thassos which helps. It may be noted that during July/August some of these inland walks might be closed to the public because of fire risk in the olive groves etc. Great holiday - many thanks to George, Helena, the chef and cleaner!
Amazing Location and Hotel

We spent an amazing 7 days & nights at the Socrates Plaza Hotel on Thassos Island at the beginning of September. The location is perfect. Hotel & grounds are kept immaculate by George & his very hard working pleasant team. Sunbeds were readily available on the beach or by the pool. Breakfast was buffet style, extremely well presented & very enjoyable. Evening meal was chosen at breakfast which suited us fine. The meals we chose were plentiful, tasty & traditional. We ate out twice but preferred the meals we had in the hotel. We had a double room overlooking the pool & sea, so fantastic to wake up to that view every morning. Also fantastic sunsets. The room was modern & the bed huge and very comfortable. The shower was powerful & plenty of hot water anytime of day. The little village of Skala Prinos is only a short walk away, either along a path or along the beach that had plenty of travenas & a large supermarket that sold all provisions & souvenirs at very reasonable prices. The sea is very shallow & the water so clear you could see the fishes & the beach sandy. We went with Tui & couldn't fault the transfer from the airport to the ferry & then onto the hotel. The reps were very friendly, knowledgeable & approachable. Thank you to George & his team for an amazing holiday & wouldn't hesitate to return to this hotel & the beautiful Island of Thassos.

Had a lovely week here. Must say we found the food fine. Greek dishes available each night. Plenty of choice. Drinks very reasonable, 5 euros for a carafe of wine and 3 euros for a mythos beer. Lift needs fixing and sunbeds on beach should be free for hotel guests as you give it back in snacks from the bar anyway. Lovely location and good service. Please feed the cat and her kittens. On the contrary they're not bad for your image. Have visited other islands in Greece and hotels have feeding stations for them. Would recommend this hotel.

I didn't spend much time in the hotel during the day, because wanted to get out and about. For the amount which I paid, I was impressed with the hotel. Skala Prinos is a quiet spot, but, with that in mind, the hotel is in a good location. Hotel functioning as a hotel should function! Problem with door card, but given a key instead and all resolved. Staff members were friendly. George was chatty in way that was friendly, and also helpful. Elena did a great job in looking after the busy restaurant, and is lovely. Food was basic, but no complaints. A welcome holiday and good stay at this establishment. Don't listen to the serial moaners. J W Woodhouse
