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

My boyfriend and I went to Greece in August and visited Athens, Santorini, Ios and Naxos. We stayed at The Medusa Resort for 2 nights on Naxos, and it was our best decision of the trip. Medusa is run by a wonderful family that cares tremendously about customer service. The resort is about a 20 min drive away from the... More

If you are looking for an off-road place directly seated at the sea that is calm and offers high comfort and beauty with friendly people and good aesthetics then this is the place I would recommend on Naxos! Good for families, with pool, no cars, nice apparments/rooms. Beach bar, sunset included every evening, ... All rooms have air-conditioning which you... More

Please note that we are Greek,so i assume we have to pay a lot more than the foreign travellers, as it happens to almost all greek hotels. The room was quite small, very noisy for some "periods" during the day, and i assume it should be a level up from the kitchen, so when the ventilator of the kitchen started... More

As others have said before, this is the best choice when staying on Naxos. My husband and I stayed here five nights, and can't wait to go back again! Mariangela does a great job running the front desk, and was so helpful to my husband and I whenever we needed anything. We loved how this was a truly family run... More

We chose Medusa because it is isolated - out of Naxos town, but close enough to get to closeby restaurants or to tour the island. This perfectly run resort is exactly what other reviewers have stated, and the efficiency of Mariangela is not to be understated - absolutely nothing is too much trouble, and every request is met with 'of...
