Reviewed August 21, 2012

This was our fift visit to Villa Marandi, and we keep going back for the comfort and warmth of the hotel and staff. The rooms are beautiful, the food and service are excellent and the host/owner George pays great attention to every important detail and the happiness of his guests. The other main attraction of Naxos are the quiet, clean, sandy beaches scattered throughout the island. :You do need a car as the hotel is too far from the town to walk, and to explore the beachesalong the west coast. The onethhing we avoid are the beaches close to town, which tend to b eovercrowded.

Just returned from a dream vacation at the perfect-in-every-way Villa Marandi. Every detail is perfection and stems from George and the staff being obsessed with making each minute of the stay great. The people are amazing--we already miss our new friends who made everything perfect The rooms are outstanding and beautiful: great views, great bed, great bathroom, great toiletries. Awesome pool and gardens. The location is heavenly. The food and drinks are Incredible, prepared by a genius chef and genius bartender who seem to anticipate everything Every meal and each course and beverage was perfect. The view is paradise and the beach and private gardens leading to the beach make you feel as if you are in heaven. George and his staff set the standard for excellent resorts. Wonderful!

My partner and I spent 9 nights at Villa Marandi at the end of June and I felt compelled to write a glowing review.

Villa Marandi is located a short 10min drive from the capital, Hora, and is positioned roughly 50meters from a secluded beach. We arrived by taxi from the seaport and were met warmly by the staff. The welcoming and accommodating atmosphere was maintained throughout our holiday.

The villas are perfectly located as a jumping-off point for visiting the rest of the island and also as a peaceful place to avoid the crowds found in Hora. The beautiful, white sandy beaches of Agios Prokopios (perfect for a lazy day by the sea) and Plaka are 5 minutes by car and visiting Hora in the evening is simple. We enjoyed the peace offered by this location and were very happy we didn’t choose to stay in Hora.

The island is surprisingly big and I’d recommend hiring a car to get the best value out of it. We explored the whole island – from the traditional mountaintop villages to the more remote fishing villages and were impressed by the variety of landscape and activities available. Tia, Yiota and Tamara were able to offer directions and advice which was invaluable during our stay.

Villa Marandi has a restaurant which caters for its guests only – they offer a wide selection of food for breakfast and we certainly ate well there. Costas, the chef, was always preparing new treats for us to sample and you’ll find it hard to refuse.

In the evening the restaurant offers a selection of traditional Greek and Mediterranean dishes. We frequented many restaurants during our time on the island and believe that our best meals were had at Villa Marandi. Although the food on the island was generally of a high standard, we often found the portions overwhelming. The restaurant at Villa Marandi found a perfect balance in this regard – we finished our meals feeling satisfied but not uncomfortably full. I’d recommend trying Kostas’s specials as they were excellent; the truffle risotto and the bean salad were particularly good. As a vegetarian I felt sufficiently catered for, whilst my partner’s carnivorous appetite was also happily satiated.

Our room was on the ground floor with sea views – it was a great size and beautifully maintained in a contemporary style with Greek accents. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious, contemporary and spotless. I can’t think of any negative comments about the room – I certainly miss the large bed.

Without doubt the best thing about Villa Marandi, and there are countless positives, is the staff. We have never felt so welcomed to a hotel – Tia was friendly, informative and very generous and made our stay incredibly enjoyable. George’s hospitality was fantastic and we were sad to leave at the end of our stay.

I would unreservedly recommend Villa Morandi to anyone considering staying on Naxos. It was a pleasure staying there and I hope we can return soon.

Many thanks George, Tia, Arti, Costas, Yiota and Tamara!

Echoing other recent reviews, Villa Marandi offers a very relaxing, peaceful venue close to a quiet beautiful beach, and a ten minute drive to the main town of Chora. This summer is a particularly good time to visit Naxos as the European problem has unnecessarily scared off potential tourists to the Greek Islands. The friendly staff offers a great daily breakfast buffet as part of the room cost. Many details of the hotel and room design are apparent, including modern fixtures, comfortable beds, very clean rooms and luxury bathrobes! Close to shopping, swimming and other water activities and visits to local sites.

We spent three nights at Villa Marandi, which were an absolutely perfect way to end our Greek island trip. We loved George's attention to detail, from design of the rooms, to fresh herbs in the warm breakfast treats. The pool and beach were peaceful, with great music playing in the background. We loved it here!

We stayed there for a week on our honeymoon trip over the Greek Islands, after 3 days in Mykonos Petasos Beach, and before 3 days in Santorini.
This villa is the place to stay if you're looking for an amazing welcome and a peaceful resort. The owners couldn't be nicer or more welcoming. The staff is really dedicated to offer the best service ever, and they are very professional and very friendly. The cook is a genius, and their menu is really large with authentic Greek food and fresh products.
The rooms are very comfortable and big, they all have a private balcony. All the bed furniture is very qualitative as the owner invested a lot into it to provide guest the best sleep quality.
The pool area is lovely and protected from the wind, which a great alternative the hotel beach situated on the north side of the island and therefore right in the wind strength.
At the hotel they will help you with organising tours, or car rental which is highly recommended on Naxos. From the hotels I would recommend driving for 15 min and go to Plakka Beach, on the west side of the island, it's a really long beach, ideal for families or friends or couples, and it s well protected from the wind. It s also ideal for snorkelling.
Altogether our stay at the Villa Marandi was magic !

To appreciate Villa Marandi, one must be sensible to intimate, small, private hotels, few rooms, very refined furniture, one must be sensible to the mix of refined environment and simplicity of the country side by the sea. This is the reason why Villa Marandi is a special place, because it is the exact representation of charm of Greece: beauty and elegance of nature, agrest country by the sea .I return, and return to Villa Marandi and always the same peace coming from this special and rare alchemy of simplicity and elegance, the hotel is like a house, flowers, colors, hospitality, kindness of the team, all those qualities leading you to feel this mystery of Greece .There are all over of the world, luxurious and over decorated places, this is not, for me, what matches with Greece. The charm of Greece is outstanding beauty in simplicity. Villa Marandi is a hotel living in this tradition
