“A hidden pearl in Naxos - great location, food and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 23, 2011

We, a family of 5 from Norway, just came back after a stay at Villa Medusa. I had high expectations, but these were more than met. The Karlovitch family has made this place an oasis at the end of the very nice Plaka beach, and is offering great hospitality. The place is quiet, the breakfast is great and tasteful dinners are served outside in the garden by attentive staff. When we were there, out 8 year old got ill on a Sunday, and the owners called the family doctor, the island´s best, who was there in 20 minutes and helped him. We stayed four days, and left the premises only once for lunch one day. We were picked up at the ferry and driven to our next destination. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful and stressless holiday right on the beach - this should be your choice.

We first visited Medusa in 1998 when we came to live in Athens and have been coming back ever since. We just love the location and more especially the wonderful family who own and run the hotel. Could go on with pages of writing about the friendly and efficient staff ,the good food,the wonderful hospitality,the sea,the pool, - guess that you have the picture by now! It is indeed Shangri-la.

From the moment Mariangela greets you the 1st class service never stops. Her customer service and professionalism is second to none. Rooms have lovely sea views and cleaned daily. The only hotel situated right on the beach with a lovely bar. The hotel grounds are awesome with a variety of eating nooks. If I owned a hotel I would employ Eddie the waiter tomorrow. He has an exuberant smile plastered on his face permanently & is on hand all day. It is a fabulously run family hotel and I would recommend it to everyone looking for a peaceful holiday.

We stayed at Medusa Resort the 2nd year in a row. Its just awesome. We had fantastic food, excellent service and wonderful rooms. The deluxe rooms are already great, but this time we had a suite , which was incredible.

The Hotel is right at the beach, so every time when it gets to windy at the beach we just went a few steps back to the pool area where we could relax in a wonderful set up greek garden.

Everyday vacation day at Medusa Resort feels like you are guests at a friends place or at your family's.

From sunrise to sunset they took care of us for every matter. We especially enjoyed the traditional food specials for dinner. We also really really like the small/medium size of the overall resort.

We recommended Medusa to all our friends.

I stayed here with my husband, daughter (8yrs) and mother in May last year for 10 days and I can honestly say it was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable holidyas I've ever had.

We had a 2 floor maisonette with balcony and it was simple, clean and very homely.

The resort is right at the far end of Plaka beach which gives it a fantastic sense of being off the beaten track. Mariangela and her staff are friendly, attentive and offer just the right amount of help without being obtrusive.

The food is superb.

But the crowning glory is the fact that it's righ ton the beach with a pool - means that you can switch between snorkelling in the sea and splashing about in the pool with ease. And the bar and poolside food delivery makes things even better.

Getting into Naxos isn't hard - you can walk along the beach to get to the regular bus service or hire a car / moped. We were able to negotiate a great deal on hire of jeep which meant we were able to explore inland Naxos too which was really interesting.

A lovely place to stay. Bring lots of books and plenty of suncream. Recommended.
