“Fantastic as Always!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

In over 20 years of visiting Greece we have yet to find a more comfortable, friendly hotel. The family are so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them. The rooms are modern, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Many have stunning views over the bay where you can watch the most amazing sunsets. Nicoletta and Dimitri are always happy to advise you where to go and what to do on the island and can arrange car hire. Their mother makes the superb quiches, flans and tarts which adorn the breakfast table along with meats, cheeses, preserves and fruits. Thier father makes delicious wine and all the staff are friendly and welcoming. Pick up and return transfers to the port are always available.

Our visit there in October was about the sixth time we have stayed and it just gets better every time.

We were recently on an extended holiday and stayed at nine hotels during that time. Without a doubt, Hotel Grotta was our best experience. The owners and staff exemplify real hospitality: they really value their guests and treat them well. The rooms and common areas were spotlessly clean. And the breakfasts were wonderful. The dining area was bright and cheerful and looked out over the water. I have a special diet requirement; I mentioned it once, and after that, it was carefully attended to. The town centre is an easy walk from the hotel as are several grocery stores and a chocolate shop with delicious pastries and chocolates. We have only happy memories of our stay at Hotel Grotta.

Room Tip: Our room off the courtyard was very pleasant.

Just returned from a fabulous 3 night stay at the Hotel Grotta in Naxos City, Greece. The hotel van met me at the pier although it would have been only a 10 minute walk. Beautiful hotel on the North side of the island, right on the water. Within walking distance to everything. The breakfast is a feast with at least 15 various casserole dishes plus breads, fruit, and the usual array of cheeses and meats. You can choose to dine in the large breakfast room or on the veranda. My room was spotless with a large balcony overlooking the Aegean and a small refrigerator. Computers were available for guest at no charge. The family/staff went above and beyond to make me feel welcomed and cared for. You will not find a more perfect stay even at a much higher price.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony with a sea view.

What will I remember of Hotel Grottta? Being welcomed to the hotel like family; warm, genuine friendly smiles and passion in serving their guests in everything - from giving travel tips to arranging transport to the port! Not forgetting the amazing breakfast spread, mostly cooked by the owner's mum!

This is one of our highlights of our trip to Naxos. Thank you Nicoletti, Marin and the ladies who clean our rooms (also with lovely smiles). We had a wonderful stay!

We stayed at Grotta after a long ferry journey from Parieus to Naxus and arrived at about 1am. The hotel minibus picked us up from the ferry port and took us straight to our hotel (about a 5min ride).

We were greeted with a glass of complimentary home made wine (which was delicious) and were given a map and advised on places of interest and the best beaches to visit which was extremely helpful.

We were then shown our room which was spotless with a comfy bed, decent walk in shower and a fabulous balcony with an ocean view to die for.

The next morning we woke feeling refreshed and went down for our breakfast which was truly amazing. There was a variety of different things available, such as Greek pastries, croissants, cereal, juice and eggs etc along with the most divine cakes for those with a sweet tooth.

After breakfast we were directed to the nearest bike rental firm (about a 10mins walk away) where we hired a scooter and explored Naxos and it's beautiful beaches by bike for the rest of our holiday.

I would recommend this quiet little hotel to anyone looking for peace and quiet just a short distance away from the heart of the town as the port is just a short walk away where all the restaurants and bars are located for a fabulous evening out.

It was our 3rd visit, in May 2012. Just perfect for island hopping. Greek hospitality at its best. The old hotel has been very well renovated and tastefully furnished, with no expense spared. Worth a visit if only for the wonderful breakfast!
