We stayed there 14 nights with our kids and we really enjoyed! the hotel is charming, the family who is owing the place is really kind and helpful : they will find you a car if you need to rent one and will deliver it at the hotel... etc, the beach is nice and quiet, the bar on the beach has a wonerfull view on the sunset on Paros Island and the atmosphere is calm.

Our kids are 5 and 6 years old but they were free to go in the hotel, this was very nice for them to go everywhere ... no road, no car ...

Plaka beach has others places to stay and it's really easy to go by walking. The beach is, most the time, not too windee ....
It is really nice to rent a car and visit others places in the island, the mountain villages for example which are at less than a 30 minutes, and Naxos city is also very nice to visit.

The food at the restaurant was ok, but the service could be very very long when they were few people at the restaurants...

We did rest a lot and enjoyed .... thank you Medusa...

Toured quite a few islands and stayed in quite a few hotels, Medusa in Naxos was just what we were looking for. Gorgeous hotel, beachfront, beautiful gardens delicately complemented with unusual furniture gracefully showcased with lanterns at night....Most importantly though was the greeting and the helpfulness of the staff, not one in particular but all as one...Will definitely do it over and over again...

We got married here and everything was amazing we stayed for 3 nights afterwards and could not fault this place one bit. The staff were the friendliest people you could meet and Mary Angela deserves a special mention as one of the nicest people we have met! She went above and beyond to help with anything and this just wasn't with us it was with all guests. A truly amazing tropical getaway wish we had stayed longer!!!

It was our 3rd stay at Medusa and we love beeing there again.

It is a peaceful place with its tropical garden and directly at the beach.

We were there with 2 asults and 2 children and all of us love this place.

The Childs could go everywhere without beeing affraid of any cars.

The staff is very friendly and you can get everything you want.

The food is also very good and you can get every drink you want during dinner also from the bar.

We will definitly come again to Medusa during our next greece visit to relax at this oasis.

We stayed in the Resort in June 2014. We found a delightful restful resort with the friendly helpful staff always ready to make our stay just perfect.They arranged a rental car for us and it was delivered and collected which made life very easy as the town is about 15 - 20 minutes away.
The accommodation is clean and up to date, the restaurant provides a good variety of excellent options.If we were to be lucky enough to return we would stay here.

Room Tip: Hire a rental car, it is easy to get around this interesting Island.

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.
