Loved our stay in Naxos. The Santana Beach Suites are luxurious, fitted out to a very high spec, with stunning views. The large patio overlooks a lovely beach. We arrived late in the season & the area was quiet but some nice beachside restaurants were still open. Hired a car & travelled to some wonderful villages in the mountains.
We stayed one week in a deluxe sea view suite above the Santana club. Our overall stay and experience is rated 5. We note that most reviews of Santana are from day trippers who were unhappy about the high cost of using loungers and required food costs. There should be three (3) sets of reviews for the Club: day trippers using beach beds; lodgers during peak season (July-August); lodgers during all off-seasons. From our treks of the surrounding beach areas, Santana has the finest facility and beach loungers in the Naxos beach areas. We assume that during peak season (July-August) it is a “near-Ibiza” atmosphere” with music 24 hours and ultra-high prices for loungers and the five ocean view second story rooms. Not an atmosphere for seniors. During the off-seasons (May-June, September-early October) the environment is totally different. Our second floor room had been refurb 3 years ago. While compact, it was upscale with a king bed, railhead shower, clothes closet, small refrigerator, large sink area. The best was a very large private balcony with table/four chairs/2 loungers and great private ocean view. The lodging came with full breakfast (many options) daily and daily full maid service. It also included choice of beach lounger chairs (which were by far the best of any loungers on our or other beaches) Our overall experience was a 5 which is far above the 3.5 average rating for Santana Beach Resort. Finally it is the best beach location on the best beach in Naxos. Pure sand beach walking to 8 restaurants without a car. Beach has no waves. We have traveled to 82 countries including almost all European countries. This beach is small but ranks with best sand beaches in Europe.…
Great little hotel on a lovely beach. Our room was spacious, clean, airy and well-furnished, with lovely ocean and sunset views. There’s no front desk, but staff at restaurant were very responsive and helpful. Insider tip: skip the so-so breakfast buffet and order a la carte, which is very good and also complimentary.
Gorgeous, luxurious, and laid back. We LOVED it so much that I booked the same week next year. The room was gorgeous and well appointed. Super clean and an AMAZING bed with nice linens and plenty of pillows. The service was very good, a bit slow, but hey its island time. Everyone is kind and helpful and very welcoming.
Being here pulls you from reality, removes all stress from your soul and engulfs you with relaxation! The rooms are lovely, view and access to the tempting salty water is dreamy. The owner and his wife Sandy along with an amazing staff make this jewel in Greece feel like home. Thrilled to have met so many amazing people who have become family... Christina, Penny, Juliette, Sophia are all beautiful souls who made our stay amazing. With Christos and Giorgos taking such excellent care of us the entire stay we could not have asked for a better experience! We were sad to leave our new tribe and will definitely return for a much longer stay. Thank you Santana for an amazing experience. ♥️
Last time we went there was 2014 went there again in 2019 December, staff were excellent as were the owners. Went for 4 weeks had to cut short the trip cause illness in family. Would recommend this hotel very clean. Jas
My husband and I spent a week at Santana Beach Resort. Great hotel with great people running it. The room was clean, spacious and well appointed. The bathroom was a little small but very doable. I found the bed to be a little hard, but my husband loved it. The best part of this hotel is the graciousness of the people running it. It is family owned and they go above and beyond to make sure you have a wonderful stay. Breakfast was delicious, drinks were great, the beach was just a few steps away. This family also has a restaurant a short walk away from the hotel managed by the parents and brother. Poppa will great you at the door with a glass of his homemade ouzo and momma makes sure you get plenty of delicious food. We found the charm of Naxos to be so much better than that of Mykonos. We can't wait to return.…
This is a prefect location on the beach, with excellent staff who are so helpful and friendly. You can just lay back and relax. The room is so clean, comfortable and had a deck with a view. Good value for money.
We loved our location in Naxos. We were able to ATV in and out of town and when we weren’t doing that we spent time on the beach. The staff were lovely and our room was spotless. Comfy bed, hot water and beautiful view. Breakfast was just ok but kept us full and ready to start the day.
Situated right next to the beach with a fantastic sea view the rooms are very modern, stylish and spotlessly clean. The service was excellent and the staff super friendly. Would highly recommend this place and was excellent value for money
