    Ridiculously Expensive food
    The beach is really beautiful. I highly recommend it for someone that likes swimming. The staff of the beach bar was really slow. In addition, the food was really mediocre and ridiculously expensive. For example, a fruit salad costs 19€ and it’s not even that big. My friend got a club sandwich for 23€ which I find very pricey for this kind of beach bar and quality. Overall we had a good time cause the music was loud and drunk a lot of wine !

    Expensive.
    Very expensive for no reason. We are here in September and not in high season, yet we paid 60€ for a pair of deckchairs. Everything is at great cost, for example a bottle of water costs 1€. I am at lost of words.

    Very nice white sand beach
    We spent a day at this lovely white sand beach. We stayed in Parikia and rented a car and drove there. It is a bit outside Naoussa, quite far to walk but not impossible I guess. The beach itself is lovely, clear blue water, white sand. Not very big or busy. I felt the sun beds were a bit overpriced since it is the end of season and the beach was almost empty (30€). Very little drinks/food options. Overall quite a nice beach compared to others in Paros. Definitely worths a visit.

We arrived at the beach club and the beach was beautiful, however, the service was embarrassingly poor, I've honestly never experienced anything like this in my life. The server, who told us his name was Benny, needs to improve his social and waiting skills. He rudely snatched the drinks menu out of my friend's hand whilst she was reading it and took it to another group without saying a word. My friend was not finished drinking her cocktail when he decided to put out his cigarette into her glass and sarcastically said sorry, laughed and walked away. He was rude and entitled; it was like he went out of his way to be nasty and we seemed to be the only group he treated like this. Not sure whether he acted this way because we were younger compared to most people there. Either way, he ruined the whole vibe yet the dj and the drinks were actually amazing.

Overall, I would recommend the location, however, the service was that atrocious, I would avoid the whole thing altogether. He made us feel uncomfortable to the extent we left after 2 hours although we had planned to stay the whole day and order more drinks.

Next time, do better.

Worst customer service ever! We were on holidays but we went from Cyprus (meaning that I speak greek my boyfriend doesn’t)
We went to the barman 13/08 at around 9:30am.. as we were walking to the bar he shouted to the girls cleaning “manage these ones please” in greek, we started asking the girl in English when they open she was nice and replied very politely then my boyfriend asks about food, I turn to the gay barman and he was talking to himself in greek “ food?? If you want food call foody” unacceptable! I turn to him and say you’re really good at what you do huh? And he’s like I’m sorry we’re just telling you and I turn and say this is an unacceptable way of speaking, you weren’t telling me cause I was speaking in English and you spoke in Greek. It was obvious he didn’t have a great night and couldn’t careless about serving anyone at this point. So we went to KOOM BAR RESTAURANT and asked the same thing the girl was lovely. We went back took our things from the sunbeds and went over to them and had an amazing time:) Check your staff please. There are alot of tourists around and not many speak this language, it doesn’t mean that you need to be useless and making jokes about their questions just because you hate your job and life. Owner should look into it and there was only one guy there and specifically gay. So yes I will never recommend this and our friends in Paros also agree with us on this. Horrible vibes in general on that side of the beach and very dirty early morning until some guy with loud music came to clean. It’s very shocking how the vibes change on different sides of the beach literally 20 meters apart.

It was soooooooooo expensive ! And you kind of have to pay because the bit without sun beds is teeny tiny and there’s nothing else around so it’s a wasted trip on the bus if you don’t stay. It was €40 for two sunbeds and The drinks were also expensive. The staff were not attentive then had the audacity to say “would you like to add a tip???”!!! But the actual
Beach and sea were gorgeous !! But just very expensive !!

I really think there should be two separate review sites to distinguish between the beach and the beach club. We rented a car and drove over here from Naoussa in the morning. The beach was almost empty and we just put our towels down and enjoyed watching the sun move across the water. The view that morning was beyond stunning - one of the most lovely sites I have ever seen. The water was crystal clear (a bit cold). We walked over to the bar and got coffees, but were perfectly happy on our towels. After a few hours, we moved on to Lefkes. I am not sure what the club is like, but the beach itself was magic.

The beach club is not opened!!! You should state that online! You are charging Eur 30 only for the beach beds without offering a service. The person charging the beds cannot even offer proper information regarding services, drinks and food. The bar menu was on every beach bed. If you are not opened for service then you should remove them. Very disappointing!!

Two sun beds costs 30€ and there is no WC or Bath to change the clothes.
Also you get no service, as example, there is no safe boxes to put the mobile or my cards.
The employee are not friendly and they work without masks or hygiene material . I bought just a water so i had to wait 40 minutes to get so expensive one.
No more in Santa maria.
Really my wife and me are so disappointed

Beautiful beach! No need to book in advance. Luckily we didn’t do that so avoided an additional resort charge by just rocking up and laying there. Just try and get there for 11ish and front row beds are €50 for two and and umbrella. Might as well pay the extra €10 euros for front row. Wish I had time to go there a second time was that good! Easy to get there and back from naoussa by bus.

The location of this club was absolutely beautiful and there’s nothing I can fault about it. However it is shameful how appalling the service was. There was 6 of us who attended and planned on spending the whole day there buying drinks and to have a good time. We had a server named Benny, who was honestly had the worst customer service I have ever had the displeasure experiencing, he was rude, impatient, dismissive and made facial expressions of disgust whenever we tried to order drinks. Not sure if he looked down on us as we are young English adults because he did not seem to treat other non-english customers this way. We tried to give him the benefit of the doubt but the longer we stayed the more rude he got, if that was even possible, he even put cigarette out in one of our drinks and didn’t even apologise. We ended up leaving after an hour or two as we felt very uncomfortable and unwelcome, it was such a disappointing experience and hope your staff do better in the future to ensure customers enjoy their visit.

The vibe of the place was quite nice and the music was great, but not worth being treated like scum.

Wouldn’t recommend.

Worst experience. We had to wait for more than an hour to get a menu, the waiters were ignoring us. When we finally order one of the salads came with a spider, the manager came and instead of apologizing he behaved very rude and he told us to leave and never come back, without even getting our money back. Very bad experience.

The beach itself is ok. Lovely sand
And clear blue waters so no complaints there but there are no food outlets open whatsoever just a shop for cold drinks.
20euros for 2 sun beds and a parasol is a little much considering this. Other beaches are cheaper and have more amenities.
