“Home again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Knowing the family for many years, i've being in at Faros many many time over the last years.
Each time I visit them everything get's better and better, they improve on the comfort and accommodation, the pool is enormous and wonderful as is the poolbar :-).
The location is for me the best spot on Naxos, the most beautiful beaches are right around the corner.
Ideal for a family holiday, nice and quiet and an extended service. You will at home within a few hours after you arrival.

We loved every aspect of our stay at Faros. The service was exceptional, the beaches were so nice and felt like we had our own private beach. The pool was excellent. The room itself was pretty good--not anything exceptional, but since the beach and service were exceptional, we would still highly recommend it.

We took the ferry to Naxos from Santorini for a nice beach getaway in the middle of our Greece sightseeing adventure. The goal of our trip to Naxos was to see the beach and get some sun as this year in Germany has been soooo grey. Faros Naxos fit our needs perfectly. The hotel is right across from a beach, though that beach is very windy and kind of rocky. However, just a short stroll away was St. George's Beach, which was sandy and calm and perfect for our 2 year old. He just splashed and played for hours! As far as the accomodations, we reserved the apartment, which had two separate bedrooms. This was good as it afforded my husband and I some privacy from the tot. My one complaint was that the only a/c in the apartment was in the "master" bedroom. That a/c did not cool down both of the rooms, so we ended up having to leave all of the bedroom doors open at night so our son's room didn't turn into a sauna. There went our privacy. Other than that, everything was perfect. The pool was beautiful and the poolside bartender was awesome. Seriously, one of the best mojitos I have every had. The place is incredibly kid-friendly, with playground all around and wonderful people. This place is a treasure for families.

Faros is definitely a piece of paradise for all those who want to get away from their hectic working lives. The place is quiet and simply beautiful, several beaches are within walking distance, the food is great (homemade, with fresh vegetables grown in the backyard), the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Niko, the family and the staff are so warm-hearted and professional, that they really make the whole place feel like home. Oh, don't forget to try the cocktails at the bar by the swimming-pool, they are delicious!

Stay here for the many local beaches that are almost deserted! The cedar forest! The fantastic daily breakfast! The swimming pool! The great home cooked food in the taverna! The friendly staff. The place rightly deserves to be Number 1.

My husband, six year old son and I stayed here for four days at the end of May. We enjoyed every moment of our time at Faros--it was quiet, comfortable, and exactly what we were looking for in a beach holiday. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful, and the food at the taverna is absolutely delicious (don't miss the Greek salad!). We'll definitely be returning.

We stayed here for a week at the beginning of June. We took a double bed room, and the two bed apartment- both with beautiful sea views.

The hotel is slightly off the beaten track, but this was a bonus for us- as we didn't want a noisy place either to sleep, or to hang out in. You would however need a car to make the most of the location, and to get yourself back into town.

The rooms are comfortably furnished, bed linen clean and beds comfy. The breakfasts included in the deal were fresh and plentiful. In fact, the longer you sat at the table, the more food seemed to appear!

The pool area is delightful- very Robinson Crusoe- with Paris behind the bar working his magic with the milkshakes and beers!

Nico and his family bend over backwards to help you with local information which is very endearing.

I would highly recommend this place to other people, including people with children. We had our 3-year old son in tow, and although he was probably quite loud, the staff made a big fuss of him (including Paris encouraging him to be his "assistant" for a hour or two!). The pool has no shallow end- so please bring armbands for any little ones!

The restaurant is excellent for evening meals too, and very reasonably priced. It also benefits in having a small play area so kids can go off and have a slide and muck about whilst you're finishing off your meal.

June was an excellent month to go, as the beaches were fairly quiet, and the weather, although warm- had a very pleasant breeze!

Room Tip: The rooms facing towards the sea get the afternoon sun, and benefit from the great view.
