We loved staying at Valena Mare, and would do so again. We loved the location, the warm welcome and clean room with an amazing view from the balcony, the beach is just a stones throw away. Would highly recommend to friends and family.

In general, our experience at Valena Mare was very nice. The rooms are big and nicely decorated, the balconies are spacious, the beach nearby is magnifiscent. One of my favorite parts was the garden. Very well adapted to the natural environment with plants that have low water demand. It shows that the owners are environmentally aware. By the way, the... More

We had the warmest welcome from a very friendly staff! The room was very comfortable, yet the a/c was hardly working at all. The bath was a pleasant surprise but the harassing flies which came at swarms made sleeping with open windows impossible. The beach nearby is absolutely marvelous!

The owners are warm people that welcome you and are going to answer all questions for your exploration of Naxos. You will feel like home and for sure you will return. The rooms are beautiful and very clean. I cant... More
