Faros Villa Small Hotel
Ranked #5 of 121 Hotels in Naxos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 23, 2014

Staying at Faros on the beautiful island of Naxos was without a doubt the highlight of our Greek island hopping honeymoon last September! Sorry i am only just reviewing, if you are thinking of going to Greek islands then finding your way to Naxos and staying at Faros is well worth it! We also went to Santorini ( which was stunning, but overcrowded and expensive), and Crete ( which we went to after Naxos and wished we were still enjoying the peace and beauty of Naxos and staying at Faros!)

From being picked up at the port by the lovely friendly NIco to being dropped off again 4 days later everything was perfect. Nico, his family and team of staff were all so friendly and welcoming, service was perfect. Our room was great. Nothing to fancy, but what do you expect for such great value rooms. It was perfectly clean, the shower worked well, the bed was comfy, they even come with a small kitchen so we could put some things in the fridge for lunch/sunset drinks which was great.

The hotel grounds were very pretty with nice colorful flowers around the place. The pool/bar area is fantastic, great sized pool for the amount of rooms, we had it to ourselves most of the time in Mid-September. There are lovely views inland to the mountains in 1 direction and the fab sandy beach and sea is just 20 metres away right across the road. The pool bar was great, serving delicious Mojito's to us! There is also a room with a pool table in which was good. The breakfast was great, a nice little help yourself buffet table of delicious Greek goodies.We also ate in the restaurant most nights, trying different menu items and they were all very tasty and well priced- mezze platter,moussaka,mmm. Their was a great atmosphere in the restaurant at night and people come from other surrounding places to eat at Faros. We rented a car 1 day and explored the island, which was fun and it is a very pretty, lush, green island. The surrounding beaches are all of excellant quality, and quiet, apart from a few nudists! The hotel is very isolated with not much else around and at the other end of island to the port, this could put some off but we found this perfect and being a small island it was still easy to explore.

We will definitely be back in the future and just hope Faros and Naxos stays as beautiful and peaceful as it is now with the mass tourism crowds staying away as it is too much effort for them to get there!

Room Tip: All rooms lovely, only 7 rooms, ones with balconies facing the sea are best for beautiful sunset mom...

Our family of four stayed one night. We arrived earlier in the day and explored the beach across the street. The whole trip was amazing and unforgettable. The family who runs Faros was kind and did a great job. We ate in the tavern and were treated like family. The rooms were lovely, comfortable, and had beautiful views. The kids couldn't resist the pool even though we went in spring. :)

We enjoyed our stay from every aspect as we wanted to relax away from the noise of a busy town(especially if you choose to travel in August when greek islands are literally packed!!), be close to the sea, have access to a -yummy-taverna, bar and a swimming pool. The service was excellent and this is because all the family members are involved in their own way. I would strongly recommend it to anyone who would like to experience the meaning of greek hospitality and relaxation, I wouldn't recommend it to somebody who wants to find themselves in the town in no time, it will take them about 20'.

We had an amazing 6 nights at Faros last month. I was unsure if this would be too long given that it is not close to town etc. But I could have stayed here forever! The location was perfect - the beach across the road was great and then walking around the coastline they just got better - private (at least in the mornings) and crystal clear, beautiful water. The pool area is huge and perfectly maintained, the bar was great of course, and the taverna with Mamas cooking amazing... We were truly sad to leave Faros especially saying goodbye to the staff who made our stay so special. We can't wait to come back!

We chose Faros as it was away from the main port of Naxos and close to sandy white beaches. This is a little piece of heaven. Family run property with the warmest welcome - the staff were funny, friendly, helpful and engaging. Mum runs the kitchen and cooks fantastic meals in the Taverna which were very well priced. Our room was a "hotel" style room so not an apartment as such but has its own balcony. It was modern and well appointed, perfect for the setting. The outdoor pool and bar area is fantastic and you are 1 minute walk across the quiet road from a beach. The beaches are beautiful and not crowded. We left not wanting to leave and hoping to return. Thank you Nikolaos, Yanis, Demetrius and everyone for a wonderful stay.

We booked these accommodations based on prior reviews on tripadvisor. After staying in bustling Mykonos for two nights, this place was a gift from the Gods!

Faros is a small boutique style hotel (only 7 rooms) that is family owned and operated. But it doesn't feel small when you start to wander the property! Extensive colorful gardens, a huge infinity pool with plenty of room to relax on the lounge chairs, outdoor bar with extra seating and the multiple room taverna.

We booked a 2BR apartment on the second floor. The rooms were immaculate (thanks Julia) and well appointed. Very firm bedding (twin and full size). Baths with shower, sink and toilet. Small sitting area with mirror for doing hair or makeup. Laundry services are offered on site for a small fee. The west facing deck included chairs and tables for enjoying morning coffee or evening sundowners. Bikes are available for day trips around the island.

But the family and staff are what make the visit so memorable. Everything was handled flawlessly! Nikolaos handled the reservations, transfers and requests with professionalism. We booked a rental car for the day (25 - 30 Euros) which was available on site. Most of the places of interest are in the mid to north end of the island - extremely easy to navigate with the map and suggestions provided by Giannis (John).

Several secluded beaches are within walking distance from the hotel. Even in the beginning of October, the azure water was warm and inviting. I won't go into detail about the beaches - you need to discover them for yourself!

Mamma Moustakis does all the cooking at the taverna. Country-style Greek cooking at its finest! Many items are locally grown and produced. Breakfast included breads, fantastic thick yogurt, local honey, sliced meat and cheese, olives, tomatoes, frittata, fresh squeezed orange juice, coffee and tea, hard boiled eggs, chopped fruit, crepes and more. Lunch and dinner are also available, which is very convenient if you don't want to venture back to the port area. Thanks to Demetrios for introducing us to his special Greek raki with honey.

This is a place to relax, rejuvenate, and disappear for a while. And to quote Nikolaos "in Greece everything is possible!!!"

We spent the first two nights in the city center of Naxos. We were looking for our last 2 nights ( september 22th-23rd) in the greek island for a little quiet place (small resort) and we ended up at Faros hotel. A little house in akylo area of naxos (the best beaches of the island are located within 15 minutes of walk from the room). Little quiet room with a very noce balcony, clean, free wifi and view of the sunset. The pool area is simply amazing, there is a bar open allday/night ! A little quiet beach two minutes away where enjoyed our last sunset in greece !! The water in september is hot. There is a restaurant with fair prices and very good meals which is hold by the mother. Finaly, staff is extremely helpful and welcoming. They were kind enough to respond to all of our requests. A special thank you to nikolaos and all everybody working at faros hotel. Nick and Marine
