“Perfect for Kitesurfing and for a relaxed time”
Reviewed September 25, 2010

The hotel and the kite-surfing school are just perfect. The beach is very nice, water absolutely clear.

We were there in the after season, so everything was really relaxed. I can imagine that during high season with much more people it won't be as nice.

You only want to go there if you want to do kite surfing and maybe some snorkeling. You will find everything you need to spend some nice days there (good restaurants nearby, supermarket, internet cafe, car rental). For everything else it is a bit isolated.

One minus: They don't pick you up at the harbor. You can either take a bus (that doesn't go very ofter) or go by taxi. Depending on what you negotiate you pay 20 to 30 Euro for the taxi.

Despite some of teh negative comments I have found on the internet we had an amazing time staying at this hotel. It's position it's excellent for those who ewant to escape the chaos of the city and yet close enough from Chora and the night life. Ideal for those who like us avoid mass turism. I bet it would make the gypset map.
The staff of the hotel is extremly helpful all the time and the cleaness is amost a ritual.
Recomment renting a bugggy or ATV to see amazing beaches and gulfs unaccessable by car.
Breakfast is more than sufficient. Delicious local yogurt with honey is guaranteed to get you 5 kg in a week if you are not careful :).
For the best fish or sea food go to Moutsouna - on the other side of the island but definetly worth the trip.

We just returned from a two-week stay at the Orkos Beach Hotel, which is managed at the highest level by Michalis, who oversees all aspects of this flawless property. Good food, great location, and a wonderful manager! Highly recommended.

I admit, it's been our mistake to book rooms at this hotel. Even it is clean enough and I cannot complain of anything (maybe the breakfast. It's been the same food for 10 mornings!!), this hotel is not suitable for people looking for sun, beach and rest. It is situated in a very, very, very, very windy bay. The beach is wild and full of kite-runners. There are no umbrellas, no sunbeds and no space to place your beach towell and catch some tan.
Mikri Vigla is situated 20 km far from Naxos town and if you are not that kind of person that likes to stay in the same coffee-shop for the entire holliday, you might be very unhappy.
In conclusion: good hotel if you are watersports lover! No beach, few tavernas, no animation, far from Naxos town, windy, windy, windy, same food for 10 mornings, small rooms, very small bathroom, balcony absolutely forbidden because of the wind.
We didn't like neither the island too much, especially that one year before we went to Santorini!! The most beautiful place in the world!
