I am here for 3 nights a weekend in November and it's heaven. The room was a side view of the sea the bed is a million dollars !! And the tub next to it was perfect. I am 6 ft and 240 lbs and I get nicely. Dalia meets you at the desk with a big smile and makes all your dreams come true. She got me a massage for 60 euros in my room and the Masseur was amazing .... ok the breakfast is Buffett and you can order omelet we ordered scrambled eggs with tomatoes and feta sooo great .... we swam in the sea ( we bought water shoes at the army navy store ) and it is Rocky then pure sand .... the walk to old town was 25 minutes and it's all level !! So easy

This hotel is truly 5 stars! Me and my spouse stayed for 4 nights and it was pure bliss. Not only was the hotel beautiful, which the pictures online don't do it any justice. Angelos and the staff is amazing and care for you even when you left the property. I had left a valuable bracelet of mine on the property and Eleni was so helpful to make sure it got back to me safe in the states. If luxury and peace of mind is something you exude on holidays (vacation) this is a must stay place. 5/5!

We stayed at this beautiful, beach front boutique hotel for our honeymoon and it far exceeded our expectations. Based on all the other beaches we checked out, I strongly believe we stayed at the most beautiful one- Platis Gialos. The view from the pool, from the breakfast, and from our room was one in a million. The location was perfect because it was a short walk to the bus stop that takes you to the main town and we were walking distance from Scorpios, Sant Anna + many bars / restaurants along our beach. It was so amazing to be able to also have the beach right downstairs from us and free sun beds rather than have to pay at every other beach club! This is definitely a more romantic and quiet area which is perfect for honeymooners and you can still go out to the town for a night out. The breakfast was delicious. The beach staff were extremely welcoming. I would like to give a huge shout out to the front desk that arranged ATV rental directly from our hotel so we didn’t have to go anywhere, and to Angelos. Angelos was such an important part of our stay and made it that much better. From the moment you meet him, he is so helpful, welcoming, and just a genuine person. Not only did he give us the best recommendations for bars, restaurants, and sights to see, but he was able to secure us last minute lunch reservations at Nammos and last minute sunset dinner reservations at Scorpios. This has been some of the best service we have ever received. He was so attentive to any questions we had. We are so appreciative. Please don’t hesitate to book here! We can’t wait to come back to Mykonos and we will not be staying anywhere else. Thank you for making us feel like we stayed in paradise.

We LOVED this hotel! The hotel/rooms itself are beautiful. The beach and pools also are great. What makes this place so special are Aggelos and the day time front desk woman. They were beyond accommodating, friendly, and just very very good people. Good staff/people really make a difference and they were the best we’ve ever had! Thank you guys and we will see you soon!

We stayed here for a few nights on our honeymoon adventure and thought it was just perfect. The facilities and rooms were very well maintained and clean, the staff was very accommodating, especially Angelos- he gives wonderful recommendations and the location was awesome. We really enjoyed our stay and looking forward to visiting this hotel again in the future.

This hotel far exceeded our expectations. It is a spectacular five star hotel. The grounds are impeccable, the rooms are beautiful, the view is out of this world. Location is excellent. On top of that, Angelos is the nicest person I’ve met. He is so genuine and helpful, and will assist with anything guests need at anytime, and he is so happy to do so. Definitely the best service we’ve ever received. I could not recommend this hotel more. The beach access is excellent and umbrellas and chairs are included for guests. Even during busy season, I felt that this section of the beach was more quiet and romantic than the rest and, no comparison, had the best views. If you are thinking of booking this hotel, look no further and do it. You will be blown away with how wonderful your stay is and how hospitable the staff is to the guests!

Our time at the Thalassa BOUTIQUE hotel was sublime. Services were first rate and we felt like important & valued guests. Angelos is unwaveringly dedicated to his job and always helped us with pleasure. Room was always clean, views were spectacular, on the best beach of Mykonos but tucked away to the side for added privacy. We cannot recommend this place more! Thank you to all the staff once again!

We stayed at Thalassa for our honeymoon in August and couldn’t have picked a better hotel! It was beautiful and so convenient being right on the beach, and being able to walk to beach clubs such as Santana, Scorpios and Kalua. Angelos was the best and was so helpful in recommendations (including places not to go) and helped us secure last minute reservations for wherever we wanted to go.

Wow, there is not many words you can say to sum up our stay at this magnificent hotel. The service really exceeds all service we have received across Europe. Angelos was behind the most fantastic and hospitable person we have ever come across travelling for over a month. Nothing was too much. He worked 10 hour days and every day had the biggest smile and worked so incredibly hard. The location is absolutely perfect, blocked from the wind and quiet to enjoy days in the sun. Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay: PS the beds are incredible.

This place was amazing and my girlfriend and I loved the atmosphere. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They made me want to stay an extra week in Mykonos! 10/10 recommend. They refused to let us carry our bags even 2 feet. Extremely courteous.

The photos on the website don’t do this property justice. In our eyes this is the best spot on Platis Gialos beach. If we came back to Mykonos we’d stay here again without a heartbeat. Staff are very helpful and kind. We had average expectations and we were blown away.
