“Escape to secluded paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

Mendusa is secluded, peaceful, gives great service, very beautifully appointed rooms offering unobstructed views. Hooray!

Much of the Greek Islands are hyper developed. Wall to wall hotels, constantly surrounded by other holidaymakers...that's not really an island escape for me.

In came Mendusa Resort- deliberately tucked behind a dirt road at the edge of Plaka on Naxos.

I stayed herebecause friends were getting married here. The rooms are HUGE. One of the wedding guests was offered a family room upgrade - we could have had 5 people stay in that room with no troubles. Also on site are villas with hottubs on the roof. Bliss!

The bar and restaurant offer excellent food and drinks. My favorite was the grilled fresh fish, with one of the best Greek Salads I've had. Washed down with a local Naxian white wine :)

Mariangela and Jason looked after our every need, including dinner reservations and car bookings.

Overall, I had a great time. I don't normally stay at resorts when holidaying but I felt Mendusa gave me great service, while offering the freedom I want on holidays.

we had a wonderful time in that lovely hotel, in plain nature, next to the sea. It is so peaceful there, houses and garden are just beautiful, the owner and her staff are very, very friendly and helpful. The breakfast in the pretty garden was delicious, we enjoyed it as well as the friendly young men who served it. The little restaurant-bar by the sea is ideal, the dinner is for Germans a bit too late. A car is a must to discover the beautiful island and to reach other places. We hope to come again.

Rare location: there is no road between the hotel and the beach, so that the hotel has direct access to the beach which is very beautiful. Nicely decorated suites (rooms are more conventional). Nice and well maintained garden decorated with antiquities and oriental furniture, breakfast is served there. Personnel is very polite and service is prompt. Good food at the beach restaurant. Reasonable price/quality ratio.

The hotel was not at all up to our expectations. We are Greek and paid a high daily rate without getting anything back. Poor breakfast and poor accommodation. Poor quality of beach in front of the hotel compared to other beaches in the island.Dirty swimming pool, not good quality of food ingredients etc... Another sad story ...

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the kitchen

Dear Mrs. Maria P.,
We take under consideration all our guests’ suggestions and we always try for the best.

The treatment is the same for all our clients; we do not distinguish Greeks and non-Greeks.
They are all taken of special care and we make them feel like home!

However, you forgot to mention that there was already a discount offered for the eight days of your reservation on your room rate, although you stayed only two!
According to the Resort’s cancellation policy and the Greek law as well, in case of an earlier departure than scheduled, the 50% of the remaining nights has to be kept; but this amount was never charged to your account.

As far as our menu in concerned we have been always using very fresh local Naxian products, either vegetables or meat or fish.

We would also like to point out that the Resort’s seawater swimming pool gets thoroughly clean and PH checked, twice per day and there is an employee who is responsible to do so.

As far as the Plaka beach (one of the most beautiful beaches on the island which have been honored in the past for its cleanliness) is concerned, we have to mention that Medusa Resort is the only resort in Naxos with a direct access to that beach!

We have also to inform you that we provide an organized beach with beach chairs/umbrellas and beach towels complimentary for all our guests.

We are sorry that Medusa Resort did not fulfill your expectations.

Kind regards,
Hotel Management

Medusa resort was a perfect getaway for us. This boutique hotel is somewhat hidden and with only 20 rooms or so, it never feels crowded. The staff is extremely accommodating and the beach and pool are very relaxing.
