We stayed in the Resort in June 2014. We found a delightful restful resort with the friendly helpful staff always ready to make our stay just perfect.They arranged a rental car for us and it was delivered and collected which made life very easy as the town is about 15 - 20 minutes away. The accommodation is clean and up... More

Mendusa is secluded, peaceful, gives great service, very beautifully appointed rooms offering unobstructed views. Hooray! Much of the Greek Islands are hyper developed. Wall to wall hotels, constantly surrounded by other holidaymakers...that's not really an island escape for me. In came Mendusa Resort- deliberately tucked behind a dirt road at the edge of Plaka on Naxos. I stayed herebecause friends... More

It is so peaceful there, houses and garden are just beautiful, the owner and her staff are very, very friendly and helpful. The breakfast in the pretty garden was delicious, we enjoyed it as well as the friendly young men who served it. The... More

Rare location: there is no road between the hotel and the beach, so that the hotel has direct access to the beach which is very beautiful. Nicely decorated suites (rooms are more conventional). Nice and well maintained garden decorated with antiquities and oriental furniture, breakfast is served there. Personnel is very polite and service is prompt. Good food at the... More

The hotel was not at all up to our expectations. We are Greek and paid a high daily rate without getting anything back. Poor breakfast and poor accommodation. Poor quality of beach in front of the hotel compared to other beaches in the island.Dirty swimming pool, not good quality of food ingredients etc... Another sad story ...

Dear Mrs. Maria P., We take under consideration all our guests’ suggestions and we always try for the best. The treatment is the same for all our clients; we do not distinguish Greeks and non-Greeks. They are all taken of special care and we make them feel like home! However, you forgot to mention that there was already a discount... More

Medusa resort was a perfect getaway for us. This boutique hotel is somewhat hidden and with only 20 rooms or so, it never feels crowded. The staff is extremely accommodating and the beach and pool are very relaxing.

We enjoyed very much our stay at Medusa Resort. It location (right on the beach) is a great advantage for those who wish to stay away and disadvantage for city activity. The solution is very simple. We have hired a car for a reasonable price and toured the island. The special thing about it is the service. The place is... More
