Lovely place to stay, very close to the fabulous beach and tavernas. Very warm and friendly hosts and nothing too much trouble. Spacious studios, good sized balcony and most of all comfy beds.

The bar is a real chill zone with great music, good snacks, drinks and The walnut pie was heavenly. Would definitely return.

We have visited Golden Beach 4 times over the last 5 years. We find the beach and resort endearing in many ways.

Stafanos and Poli’s hotel is the only one we have returned to after staying at several others. We find the garden very attractive, the apartments spotlessly clean (with everything in working order) and the coffee, cocktails and hospitality of our hosts very agreeable. Indeed, we would like to believe, they have become our friends.

Whilst I can see why there was justifiable angst in the two negative reviews below. I think it prudent to remind anyone, considering booking a holiday at this little resort, that it still maintains a very traditional culture with all family members taking on roles within the businesses on the island. To us Brits it is easy to interpret a laid back attitude alongside the paradoxical manner of grand hand gestures and passionate vocals as being both lazy and rude but this is a tiny resort in Greece and not a 5 star, all-inclusive hotel on the Maldives.

If you want inexpensive accommodation and flights to somewhere with amazing weather, food and beaches this is the best place to stay on the island, in our opinion. If you take the time to treat Poli and Stefanos as your friends rather than merely as staff then you will have the warmest welcome and fabulous holiday.

Read the reviews for this apartment hence the visit, lovely setting, very clean, rooms comfortable.
Nice gardens and bar.
Had a few issues just niggles but what spoils it was the owners response , really got the impression something else was going on. The bar seems to be his bag and thinking about it he seems disinterested in the apartments and guests.

Very sad.
Spoilt the holiday but made the best of it.
A loss to them because we spent our money elsewhere!

Very quiet Thassos.
Had a good laugh

Having read all the positive reviews regarding the owners Stefanos and Polly, I can only think something must be going wrong for them personally as I do not recognise the people described in previous reviews to what we met at Hotel Stafanos.From the moment we arrived there was a bad atmosphere,its hard to describe it without going into long details, it just wasn't right, we went to the garden area after we unpacked and ordered some drinks and something to eat, when Stefanos passed food order to Polly (who is also the cook) she pulled a face whilst stubbing out her cigarette . There was no friendly chat from Stefanos from the outset, I approached him on second day to point out that the patio door wasn't locking,he just moaned at me as he heard me opening and closing door few times when I was trying to get it to work, he said there was no crime in area so don't worry but he would look at it, now I appreciate that crime is low but is it too much to ask for a secure room?,the safe in the room just sat in wardrobe,it wasn't secured to anything and could be taken out of room easily, on two occasions when we returned to hotel in afternoon the front door wasn't even closed, I'm guessing after being cleaned, again appreciate the low crime claim but if stuff had gone missing from room who would compensate.The air conditioning in our friends room broke one night, no big deal, when he spoke to Stefanos in morning he just pulled a face and shrugged his shoulders and said he'd look at it,when we came back later Polly had informed our friend that the engineer was trying to get a part to repair air conditioning, in his room the single bed was pushed in front of patio doors and step ladders were opened and cover of air conditioner on floor, our friend tried to find out if it was gonna be repaired that evening, bot a problem if it wasn't but if not he will move step ladder and bed so he could at least open patio doors, our friend asked the Thomson repif(Paul) he could find out,next thing we heard was Stefanos shouting at Paul, Paul said he didn't have a clue why Stefanos was being so aggressive, he'd never been like that to him before,again this makes me wonder if something was going on with Stefanos that we were not aware of, unfortunately we did not deserve to be treated as we were no matter what the excuses are, we are not a demanding couple at all, we have made friends with many Greek hotel owners on different islands,we will not be returning here.
