This place keeps things simple and lets nearby Golden Beach do the talking.
The Anastasia is in a fantastic spot. It’s less than five minutes’ walk from Golden Beach and there’s a land train that goes between Skala Panagia and Skala Potamia. Thassos Town is a 15-minute drive away, as well.
There isn’t a pool here and with some great beachfront tavernas close by you’ve got no real need for a restaurant. For drinks and card games, there’s the garden bar.
The holiday was a retirement gift from the company I worked for and was chosen and booked online from the information given and comments from previous guests.
Although it does not have the pool shown above it was everything we expected, good accommodation, cleanliness was exceptional, Dimitri, his wife and children were really lovely people, there if you needed them but not in your face all the time. The beach was just 2 minutes away and has changed a lot in the 14 years since we have been to Thassos but strangely the beds & brollies that George looked after are in exactly the same place we used to sit all that time ago. Might I say Thomas Cook's gain is Thomson's loss and we will return.

What a great place.
Just returned from Anastasia Studios after a two week break, and I have to say these are as good as any apartments we have stayed in, and better than most. They are superbly located in a very very quiet area but within easy walking distance of bars and tavernas, and just across the road from the beach. We were lucky enough to have a sea view, and found the rooms and hotel area to be spotlessly clean. Dimitri, the owner, is constantly on hand to deal with any issues, and will carry your bags to your room, and will also bring drinks to your room from the hotel bar. Whenever we were in the room we had the air con on, including overnight, and never had any problems. Unlike other apartments we have stayed in we did not experience any noise from any of the other apartments. No water noise, no stiletto heels, nothing, which was very welcome. The linen and towels are changed regularly and the apartments cleaned daily. Toilet rolls were replaced as and when needed. These apartments really are a gem and we'll worth a visit, especially if you like clean and quiet.More

The Best Thassos has to offer
The photo above is not of the Anastasia Studios that we stayed in, see the Thomson brochure for the real photos. The studios that we have just returned from were the best that we have ever stayed in in Greece. Comfortable, clean and Dimitri is the best host I have ever had the pleasure to meet. Nothing is too much trouble for him and his family, they work tirelessly to make sure that your holiday is perfect. I have read several revues about these studios and would dispute any negative comments, especially those who refer to noise, we were on the third floor overlooking the bar and were never disturbed, some people just don't know how to enjoy themselves and don't appreciate all the effort that Dimitri puts in. First class accommodation and a first class experience. Would highly recommend this fantastic establishment. Thanks Dimitri, we will return and very soon.More
It really is No Problem
Just returned from Anastasia apartments in Golden Beach-Thassos. To get to your destination from the airport it's a 15 min coach ride to the local sea port. Here you disembark and walk on the ferry, whilst the coach and your luggage drives on. The sea crossing takes 35-40 mins and then another 30 mins approx depending on the number of drop off points along the way.
It's our third time on the island always stopping in Golden Beach, but our first visit here. Dimitre showed all the gusts arriving with us to their rooms carrying bags as he went.
Our room was no 3 first floor with sea view situated in the middle.
We have travelled to Greece many times self catering and know what to expect. These rooms are compact, complete with kettle, toaster, fridge, hair dryer, flat screen TV, air conditioning and safe. The latter two costing 95 Euro for a two week stay. We were very pleased with the comfortable beds, quality sheets and the pillows were as good as home. What really impressed us was the cleanliness of the whole establishment, and the friendly relaxed atmosphere that Dimitrie and his family portray. Our towels were changed 2-3 times a week and even had new towels the day we were due to leave. The only criticism we had was that you had to hold the shower head whilst showering!
The garden bar serves drinks spirits 5 euro including a small fruit salad and a shot of the local tipple, ice creams 2 euro and a good English breakfast 6 euro served with home grown produce from the garden.
No pool here, But you have easy access to the whole of golden beach 100 meters away and no hills!! Several small super markets and many good quality tavernas are situated within 5-15 minutes walking distance.
Dimities farther George has the sun beds on the front for 5 euros a day and if asked he will reserve them for you. Free sun beds are available in front of most bars if you purchase drinks etc, but it gets very busy and are tightly packed.
Having stayed In Greece accommodation 30 plus times we've never felt at home as much as here. We will be returning although, it won't be with Thompson holidays. From 2016 you will need to book with Thomas Cook.
Thank you Dimitri family and the lovely maid for giving us the opportunity to experience true Greek hospitality at its finest.More

Much to commend but....
We did not find The owners as warm and friendly as others have suggested and hoped this was not because we were a female couple. We were regularly told off for having our air con on 'too high' and once the owner came into our room and took the controller out of my partners hand and turned it to the same temp we have our central heating on at home! Given the significant cost to us of the air con we felt this was out of order. A big issue for us is that these are advertised by thompson as adult only. They are not at all. One night we were kept awake well past midnight by kids playing football in the gardens. However, the rooms are very clean and the beds very comfy, the bar is pleasant and the location perfect for us - much closer to the beautiful beach than Google maps would indicate.
Bit stingy on the toilet rolls and the towels were very hard but the rooms were cleaned regularly and serviced every day.More
