Where to stay in Naxos, Greece
We really enjoyed our four week stay at Maria Studios! George was a wonderful host and we enjoyed this quiet place with a beautiful pool and garden. It is the perfect location. It’s just a one minute walk to a great beach with a supermarket and lots of great restaurants nearby. Very affordable prices and courteous service make this a great choice!
Maria is a fabulous host. She picked us up from the ferry, gave us great tips and even made us cookies. The apartment is small, comfortable and was very clean when we stayed. There are limited cooking options, but it’s an easy walk to downtown and some fabulous, inexpensive restaurants.
Great rooms and very clean. I highly recommend it … lady Maria is very helpful and willing to help us …
We have six people and rented two rooms. Although the rent of the two rooms are the same, the quality is very different. One was relatively old and the other was renovated and glamorous. The location is not too remote, you can walk to the city center in about 10 minutes. There are also beaches and good restaurants nearby.
George was the perfect host who met all of our needs. The room is cleaned every day and the cleaners do a great job. The grounds are new and nice and offer ample parking. Distance to supermarket, bars and good food and beach 1 min. I would go back to this hotel.
I really liked this hotel, the staff were great (take the time to talk to them and you will see) and the breakfast was excellent. Our room was excellent, with a large double bed, balcony, shower room and small kitchen sink in the room (116). We will definitely be back again.
Great hotel in a great location. It deserves more stars than it has. Very good naxi breakfast, large and clean rooms.
The room is very nicely decorated, daily housekeeping, the staff is very polite and helpful, and the breakfast is incredibly varied and delicious.
It is on the beach, the hotel is nice, but the rooms need to be renovated and furniture changed, cleaning could be better. Nice staff, variety for breakfast

Nice little hotel, great service and location. Close enough to the city itself without the noise and crowds. Decent continental breakfast, some fruits and vegetables picked in the hotel garden. Very friendly staff, always available and helpful. Highly recommended.
We have stayed in various rooms in Naxos from time to time, but our best experience was with the Porto Naxos. Clean, spacious, with amenities that we enjoy on our vacation, such as a beautiful garden with a pool. Across the street is a large supermarket for everything you need. I look forward to going again!
Beautiful and charming hotel. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The receptionists are very friendly and helpful. Fantastic breakfast. Perfect environment for the pool at any time. Close to the beach.
The staff was great! Both concierges (one late night/early morning and one afternoon to night) were really helpful with recommendations, directions and reservations. Nice pool area. Breakfast was excellent, with quite a wide selection. Location was good, about a 10 minute drive to the city center, bus stops to the beach and to the port were also right next to the hotel. There was also a supermarket across the street. The only thing.
Great location, very friendly staff, great breakfast, clean and spacious rooms. A must visit!
Clean, quiet and welcoming. Lovely large pool. Literally close to the beach and about 10 minutes from downtown! One of the best options if you are in Naxos.
The hotel is very well located, close to the sea and 10 minutes from Naxos port. The hotel is clean, even if some things deserve repair because they show signs of wear and tear (bath mats, towels, etc.). Friendly, smiling staff (not counting the bartender).
Great staff!!! Very pleasant. And very close to the beach. The morning buffet really could have been better. 5 stars next time if they improve the morning buffet.
Very nice location, perfect location opposite the beach, not even 5′ from Naxos market, crystal clear pool, perfect and most importantly, very good price.Although three stars puts some 5 stars comfortably down
Very nice hotel, quiet, located 50 meters from the city center, beach and bars. Equipped with all expected amenities. I only gave it 4 stars because the breakfast and in particular the fruit juices were not good (first price of industrial products). In addition, some facilities such as the gym, sauna and hammam are clearly outdated, if not obsolete. At a price of over 200 euros.
A small hotel in a great location, close to the port and beach. We were very welcomed and it was the only establishment on our entire trip to the Cyclades that was kind enough to offer us bottled water and fresh fruit every day! (you can’t drink running water) Thanks for your kindness and kindness
Kind staff and very welcoming Mr. Costas. Great hotel location with convenient parking nearby. Adequately equipped room and very clean. Breakfast for local food lovers.
Perfect, small, quiet and clean hotel with a very nice supervisor. Thank you Costas greetings Frank.
Very nice hotel. Nice environment. Very close to the sea. Polite staff. Very clean rooms.
Thank you very much for hosting! In a friendly and human environment with personal interest from Costas! Really very clean all rooms and clean rooms! The hotel is very close to the beach, 1 minute walk and 5′ center. The breakfast is quality and fresh everything! We highly recommend!

I haven’t stayed everywhere on Naxos, but even without that I can say that I have no doubt that Castle Mansions is the best! The location couldn’t be better (you can walk everywhere in the main area), the owners are very friendly and helpful, the price was very reasonable, etc. Etc, Etc, Etc! We can’t wait to go back and stay here for a month next year!
The store we stayed in contained many high quality renovations. There was air conditioning, clothes washer, refrigerator, stove , . Screened porches to let in the wind. It was very quiet The beds were very comfortable. The owner and staff were very accommodating. Worth every cent.
This is an amazing gem owned by a good family. There was a great view with everything you need. It’s all recently renovated with a washer, which is very convenient. There are lots of restaurants, bakeries and stores nearby. Of course, you have to eat at Typografio since it is owned by the same family. They even served us free desserts, which were delicious.
If you want to stay in “downtown” Naxos, this is it! Perfectly located, new apartment, very tastefully decorated. Modern, clean and comfortable. You feel like you’re in a luxury hotel room, but with the added bonus of a full kitchen to eat at home. Very attentive owners who responded to our needs and took the time to make recommendations. Absolutely loved it.
Naxos travel guide.
Naxos is more loved by Greeks than tourists. The island of Naxos has been generously endowed by nature with the best features of the Mediterranean climate, which is characterized by mild winters and hot, arid summers. It is at its hottest from early July to late August. During this period, daytime temperatures do not drop below thirty degrees.
From mid-July to mid-August, Naxos is visited by the north wind, the Meltemi, which blows over the island from the sunrise to the sunset. This interval attracts the fans of surfing, as the waves are favorable to this type of recreation and sport. For holidays with children, the best choice is the second half of August or early September, as at this time begins to recede daytime heat and the beaches are virtually in the calm.
Pricing policy is different its stability, but in winter, holidays on the island of Naxos will cost half as much cheaper than the summer. Here it really depends on what you want to get out of a vacation on Naxos. Do you want to get a gorgeous tan? Then July and August are ideal for you. If you are more interested in sightseeing tours and attractions on the island of Naxos, the most favorable time for this type of holiday is autumn and spring.
Where to stay in Naxos?
Naxos is quite a popular holiday destination not only for Greeks, but also for tourists from many European countries, so despite its relatively small size, there is a fairly large selection of hotels and properties, which are specially designed for the resettlement of guests of the island, for the duration of the holidays. These are complexes with apartments, individual and combined villas and other options. But perhaps it can be considered one of the minuses of the resort island that almost all hotels or complexes, staff speak Greek or basic European languages, at least Russian-speaking staff I have not met, but I can not claim with certainty that such hotels are not. Therefore, the few options that I want to offer for your attention, only the lack of Russian-speaking staff and can, to some extent, a little frustrating for those wishing to visit Naxos. I can, perhaps, disappoint some by saying that you will not see here super chic hotels with 5+ stars, and today it is at best a few “five” or the usual “four”, which are more suitable for a cozy family vacation rather than for entertainment and a boisterous nightlife, so we will talk about those.
The first hotel I wanted to introduce you to is called Nissaki Beach Hotel. It is located just a few hundred meters from the island’s capital, Naxos, basically.
What to see on Naxos?
Naxos is a Greek island in the Cyclades and is the largest island of the archipelago (Naxos area 428 km²). About 18 thousand people live here and work on the sandpaper and marble factory (by the way, it is the birthplace of the world’s largest deposit of sandpaper! To say that Naxos is very popular among tourists is to be mistaken. Tourism in general is not a priority for Naxos. However, it is not exactly a “lost” place, of course. There are luxury hotels, stores and bars, everything is there. You can get to the island by ferry from Piraeus and Rafina (daily). The trip takes 4-5 hours. Or you can fly to the island from Athens (six times a week there are flights to the island, the company Olympic Air). Well, once on the island, do not forget that Naxos has a long and very interesting history. The island is mentioned in documents from the 6th century BC. Accordingly, since antiquity, the city can be considered as a prosperous and famous. Here is what you can see on Naxos.
The Church of the Virgin Mary (First Enthroned Virgin Church)
This church is located in the village of Chalki, southeast of Chora. It is one of the earliest cross-domed churches in Greece. It is also called the Church of Panagia Prototron. It is believed that this beautiful white cathedral with one dome was built in the 9th century. By the way, the building was originally built as a basilica, and inside. read completely
