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.
