Aegean Sun Apartments
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Skala Rachoniou
Reviewed 1 October 2016

We came here to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Because of our jobs we needed somewhere to unwind and relax, and boy did we get it. The manager Nicole made us feel very welcome as did Christos the bar man. The apartments were clean and spacious. Garden and pool area were kept clean. To walk onto the glorious sand and crystal clear sea each day was just lovely. Only negative was the lack of choice for TV. Maybe another English channel would be begood, and sometimes bar was not open as advertised, but these are minor issues. Will definitely be back

Room Tip: Ask for room at front for unblocked sea view

For the first holiday in Thassos I was quite reluctant for the location where we get elected we did on last minute bookings through May, choosing what we found available ...
Although agency guaranteed me a sea view and (for the other couple with an apartment minutes I was downstairs and sea-view and razor-discussed essential condition) I was surprised when I arrived at the hotel as a receptionist, a person extremely indifferent and without little smile on your face, she replied curtly that her job is not what we discussed new agency but it has no way to give us sea views;
In addition the apartment was in the basement, back, lit only by a cave access door, which also had wooden shutters, suite consisting of two rooms only formal, between them there is a semi-partition ... half the width of the room Board of size 1.5 / 2 m above the bed of one person sitting on throne proud and only air conditioner that had to face the entire apartment.
A division ill-advised, without logic and common sense can, as long as 3-4-5 went up stairs to the ground floor enjoying the fresh air that gave little, considering that those steps were framed within the walls of the building access.
For us we were shown a room upstairs, as had requested, but with back view, it is all the saying that what she can offer.
Of course began discussions, explanations, denials at which ... receptionist / administrative or wife of the patron as I suspected it would, in the days when she was totally bored, give us another saying key It has a room with sea view but downstairs and quickly if we decide we want it or not ...
I saw entering the room porch / balcony generous opening to the sea located at about 20 meters, olive trees and tables, chairs and fine sand ... the room had a large double bed, two single beds bunk, metal, kitchenette on lobby extremely useful and equipped, a small bathroom with shower ...
Compared to what I had seen back upstairs, prompted us to consider a better choice; Immediately we realized that ... not really on the ground floor because the balcony was more high from the ground, railing range is around 2.5 m ...
Finally the tour operator intervention day has been assigned a maisonette for anither our friends holding a double bed upstairs to which access was made through a staircase worm extremely tight; And above, the scale was preferable to make the 2 m to bed in squat position for not giving head to the ceiling ... Down a sofa for one person. The air conditioning high above the double bed; Unbelievable how much crap could have someone in logic decorating in this hotel ...
In addition to several days she told that this room will be available until the penultimate day when again our friend need to move, this time in a double studio ...

Management cheaper services for the downgrading unit deserves score ...

Turning to us and sea room, we found that the large balcony has an essential role in comfort and appreciation of this location is preferred by us morning and evening coffee or glass of wine, a table and 4 metal chairs

The room was cleaned daily and the linens were changed to 2 days, and even unexpected positive new direction toward behavior.
Highly equipped kitchenette: sink, microwave, stove 2 burners current, dishes, coffee maker, manual juicers fruit, cutlery, dishes ...
Bathroom facilities with minimal cosmetic and hair dryer, shower, everything kinda cramped but useful, accessible and effective.
I appreciated the hot water / hot this at any time, just enough and good pressure.

Inside the hotel location pool for adults max 1,5 m clean water every day had a nearly clear, very accessible and enjoyable for children, balls and plastic balls with Loaf and several water toys in good condition.
Swimming pool for children was more a bucket steeped for babies where I do not know if the water was unnecessary conceptually 0.5 cm ...
Near the pool a bar equipped with the necessary prices ok compared to the rest of its kind in the area.
All enclosed by olive branches more generous that provided a fleeting shadow and extra quiet area, furnished with tables and chairs for relaxation ... somewhat green grass ...
Beach extremely close to their sun beds and umbrellas cane at no extra cost, all in good condition and buckets lopatele complimentary for children's entertainment.
Fine sand beach about 5 m wide, with pebbles and water curing stones that towered fix than a few sea urchins, smooth entry to about 15 m, then slow down to 1.5 m ...

Meals: Breakfast consists of: two kinds ham, cheese, cheese, yoghurt 3-4 cream cheese and caviar 3-4 as cereal, scrambled eggs with diced ham and fried egg countries 3-4 jams, milk, water 2xsuc (dispenser) melon, croissants.
I considered sufficiently diversified and tasty but same course for eight days were over our taste; Not that I do not eat dainty but no home for 8 days the same way for me to finish 2-3 and go to buy something else !!!
This I consider a minus, because already so much children and many people after so many days of exactly same type of MD.
Another minus was a moment of evening at 9 when my child being hungry and open bar, where the day were made and hot dogs, which at that time stood receptionist shift at the bar said she is not food . I wondered what I could give her child at that time and shrugged ... Nice; (

Finally, one above the other, for the first exit in Thassos, location and service was ok, I learned to adapt and adapt them to our needs, so that by the end we decided that the end of the season or next year to go back in the same location;

Just I hope that the current austerity Greece will teach these '' managers '' to offer lower prices nose down and of course friendly, although ... frankly, I think this behavior only reflects on us ... as Romanians. .. not the other but too often pronounced - Romanian tour operator fault - and in many discussions with customers Germans captured eg, tone and attitude were more friendly manager ...

And these issues in a civilized country that is considered should miss; Otherwise, the legislation would be too drastic sanction.

I didn't know what to expect as I'd booked it just because it was close to where our friends live but was pleasantly surprised. The studio we had looked out on to a swimming pool and beyond that the sandy beach which was surrounded by olive trees. The studio had a small kitchenette that had everything you needed including a microwave and full sized refrigerator, everything was spotlessly clean and well maintained. The staff were really friendly and made our stay there just that bit extra special. The families with young children all seemed to have great fun in the swimming pool, playing table tennis and taking part in water sports. Friday night is BBQ night; great food, drink etc at extremely reasonable prices. There is a supermarket near by and quite a few tavernas all within walking distance. All in all I would highly recommend these studios and of course Thassos which is extremely beautiful.

so the hotel is way better than we expected. officially it's 2 stars or something, but its very clean(the cleaning ladies changed sheets and towels nearly every day), everything inside is rather new or very neat, personal is very friendly and sweet!! internet works inside rooms more or less stable and free of charge, bar is open until late, you can get bikes for free from the hotel though not for too long which is also fine, breakfast was pretty nice, seaside is very near with several beaches and supermarket near by. the only problem might be the beach itself: the sea near by has way too many sea hedgehogs. you gotta watch out!;-)Important thing to do- get a car and go to Kastro village.

This hotel has been a very pleasant surprise for us, family of three. It is ideal for families as it has a swimming pool and is right on the beach. The hostess is the most pleasant person we ever met, gave us beach towels, packed us lunches, allowed us to use hotel kitchen and cook fish we caught! My only remark would be the beach where hotel is is full of sea urchins, you have to walk 50 meters to the perfect sandy beach. However this is minor as if you rent a car you have a whole island available with fantastic beaches and restaurants. Would highly recommend it and would go back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view and big balcony!

Aegean Sun hotel is located on a quiet stretch of Skala Rakhoniou beach. It's only a 5-min drive from Prinos port and another 15 mins from Limenas (Thasos town) port, so it's easily accessible.
It is a nice modern hotel, with outdoor pool and pool bar. It is targeted to families: large family rooms, pool toys, a ping pong table, swings etc. Breakfast was nice, not too much variety, but freshly cooked every day.
Rooms were cleaned daily and there is ample parking space. Our family room had a large double bed, two children beds one on top of the other, fully equipped kitchenette, TV, A/C and a large balcony with a table and four chairs.
The only downsides are the very shallow sea (good thing for the kids though) and its remote location: you will need a car to visit nearby villages, although there are a few restaurants, tavernas and bars nearby.
Recommended for families.
