Loved this resort! I was looking for a place that I could get over jet lag, enjoy an authentic Greek experience and not feel like I was in tourist central. Medusa scratched all those itches. Great decor, waking distance to great restaurants, great on site drinks and food. Staff was amazing! They arranged rental car for us, and though a... More

Medusa resort was simply life changing!!! The staff and owners were friendly and very hospitable!! I stayed at the medusa for 3 days. Every day was amazing! The outside dining was beautiful with the candlelights. The resort really made me feel relaxed. Listening to the waves while I'm sipping on a glass of wine. Watching the sunset was priceless. I'm...

This hidden gem was everything we needed - right on the beach, incredibly friendly staff, the type of place where you can truly unwind and connect with friends and family. The bus into town was a 10 minute walk down the beach, easy to get to - - but with the beautiful beach setting, you don't need town - stay... More

The location of the hotel is wonderful. It is secluded and quiet, but close enough to be in town within 20 minutes. The beach is gorgeous and there are other beautiful beaches nearby. Had an awesome time exploring the area, and also other beaches within walking distance. The views from the hotel and around the area are breathtaking! The resort... More

We are a family with two daughters of 18 and 9 years old and spent 11 nights in this resort between 5-16 August 2016. We had selected this hotel after reading the various reviews in trip advisor. So we knew all prons and cons in advance and did not have any surprise or complaint. The hotel is located in a... More

This place isn't 5 star except for the prices they charge. The place was full of annoying flies but apparently this was seasonal so maybe we were just unlucky. At the breakfast we were served canned fruit and the fresh fruit didn't seem to be their obvious choice. We had to pay for a bit of walnuts we wanted to... More

I think that the eagles song summarizes it in the most accurate way. Yes, it's not like a 5 star Hilton in terms of the resort and the accommodations, but you don't come to Naxos for that, do you? The resort offers a chance to escape and to relax in a Naxoian treasure. This hotel is family owned and operated... More

Beautiful place with a lovely pool and beach area, with a small restaurant on site, really friendly staff and great value for money. Perfect place to stay if you're looking for a relaxing and casual vacation. Rooms are simple but very clean and the bathrooms are modern. You probably need a car or bike to get to the nearby restaurants... More
