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!
