“Leaves you with happy memories!”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

I have stayed twice at Contaratos Beach Hotel with my now husband. There are a number of reasons I would highly recommend this hotel, and I am definitely going back whenever I get the chance. First, the location is perfect. With a beautiful (and VERY inviting) pool and pool area, you are nonetheless steps from the beach and beautiful water. The street is not large, so when people say across the street in their reviews, it is truly a matter of steps across the street to the beach edge. The beach is narrow, but totally lovely with chairs and straw-type umbrella covers. . . and gorgeous water to swim in. We went back and forth between the beach and the pool. The hotel is immaculately clean in all the public and private spaces, and the beds have very comfortable mattresses. The walk into town (Naoussa) is easy, and when you arrive there are many winding streets to explore with diverse shops and bars and restaurants. If you are a photographer, bring your camera so that you can take pictures all the time. Breakfast is nice, but I thought the real treat was when you order lunch at the poolside bar/cafe and get a really good home-cooked meal. (If you want just a sandwich or coffee, you can easily get that too.) The property and owners are well respected on the island, and any request you have seems to be easily and quickly met. The reception staff all speak multiple languages. The second time we were there, we rented a car for the day with the help of the hotel, and had a great time going around the whole island. A bus or taxi into Parikia (where you arrive by boat) is also easy and a worthwhile trip for more culture (don't miss the cathedral), shops, restaurants and cafes. I hope you enjoy Contaratos Beach Hotel as much as we did!!

I went in Paros for business for 4 days and I stayed in CBH I research the hotel from tripadvisor and I can tell that I am very happy! the location of the hotel is fantastic, its too close to Naousa in front of my room I had very nice view, the sea... all the people from the service was very helpful, my room was always clean as well the pool also. I hope to go again in Paros and book the same hotel for sure. P.s Naousa was very nice all the small bars and stores in old port.

The room we stayed in was 'upgraded' as we were told the hotel was full. All our excitement vanished when we saw the upgrade consisted of an extra room with a jacuzzi tub and you need to pay if you wish to use it.
I think the hotel is great for families but not for couples. We had kids yelling, running around and banging at our doors. The beach was also very dirty, full of plastic bags and bottles in the water.
The hotel operates by biological cleaning and not even toilet paper should be thrown into the toilet. I'm fine with that, but the tiny bin in the toilet is not user friendly AT ALL. The bathtub did not have a curtain but rather a glass door that only covered half the tub. Needless to say, it was impossible to keep the bathroom dry.
The breakfast was horrible: food was cold with very few choices.
I think there are better alternatives in Naoussa.

My family and I stayed at the Contaratos Beach and Bay Hotel in July 2012. Getting to Paros from Athens was a very short plane ride, which was great since we were traveling with four kids. The location of the hotel was ideal, as it is right across from a sandy beach and a ten minute walk to the village of Naoussa. We loved visiting Naoussa, it has so many beautiful restaurants right on the water and plenty of shopping. The hotel pool is very nice and was always clean, and it was great having a beach bar right there, too. We had a great view from our room and the rooms were always clean. The staff was always polite and helpful. We definitely enjoyed our stay at the Contaratos Beach and Bay Hotel and would love to visit Paros again.

My husband and I and our 2 teenage children have just returned from our 15 day holiday at the Contaratos Bay apartments. This is our 3rd visit to Paros and our 2nd stay at the Contaratos property. The hotel is in an excellent position just outside Naoussa facing the only beach accessible on foot from the town. (All other beaches you need to take a short bus or boat ride to reach). We had a fabulous and very relaxing time. Previously we have stayed in a family room at the Beach hotel , which is immaculately clean and maintained to a high standard. The pool is fantastic and there is a small pool bar and restaurant which serves lovely home cooked food. This is open to non residents too which is how we discovered this hotel several years ago.There are always plenty of loungers and hammocks around the pool and the atmosphere is very relaxed and you dont get people getting up early to put towels on sun loungers! A big plus!!!! The location of the Contaratos Beach Hotel is perfect. There are complimentary sun beds and Parasols for hotel guests on the small beach which is across a relatively quiet road. Its a 10 min walk up and over a small hill into the picturesque and lively resort of Naoussa. The advantage of the location is that its quiet but handy for town. The local bus also stops outside the hotel if you want to visit Santa Maria beach 10 mins away for water sports and tavernas.

This year due to the ages of our teenage children we stayed at the Contaratos Bay apartments/studios which are about 80m walk from the hotel. This gave us the flexibility to have 2 separate rooms and bathrooms for us and our children with interconnecting doors. The studios on the higher levels have a lovely sea view and there is also a communal sunbathing terrace. The studios also have kitchen facilities (although not really equipped for self catering - but enough to prepare snacks and breakfast.) which means that you have the freedom to have breakfast when you want on your own balcony. Guests in the studios can also use the facilities at the hotel which gave us the best of both worlds. I would say that the only downside of the studios are the bathrooms/shower rooms. They are more dated than at the hotel and water pressure/ temp was not brilliant but this is something that you come to accept in lots of Greek hotels. Otherwise the studios are extremely clean (cleaned daily by the maids), the beds are comfortable and sheets and towels are changed every 2 days. Oh, and all have air conditioning which is a must in peak season!

Giannis Contaratos and his staff are very professional, always polite and will take any opportunity to make your stay enjoyable eg helping with car hire, boat trips, restaurant bookings and travel arrangements. Fiona who works at the Bay apartments was lovely and helped us with care hire and excursions too.

All in all one in our opinion this is one of the best locations in Naoussa and a great little hotel which we would highly recommend to people of all ages. The Contaratos family obviously take a lot of pride in their business and it shows as over the years they have continuously made improvements to this hotel. We hope to come back again in the future.

Room Tip: Rooms at the Beach hotel are more modern. At the Bay Apartments there are 3 levels and I think the 1...

We stayed at Contaratos Beach hotel for 3 nights in July. We had a family room, which was located toward the back of the resort near the tennis court. It had a queen bed and 2 single beds with a lovely little balcony and we could still see the sea from our balcony. The hotel is lovely and right across from a beach (though not the nicest beach I saw in Greece). The pool is fantastic and fun for the kids with a diving board. The restaurant located near the pool and overlooking the beach offers a great menu and decent food. The guy who served the food while we were there always seemed cranky and didn't really provide service with a smile, but the food was still pretty good. The village of Naoussa is about a 10 - 15 minute walk from the hotel. It is the most beautiful and cosmopolitan village with amazing shopping, cafes, bars, restaurants etc. There are some great places to eat in the village where you are literally on the beach, eating with your feet in the sand. There are also some very cool bars and cafes in the little windy cobblestone streets. We all absolutely loved Naoussa - and staying at the Contaratos Beach hotel worked perfectly for us. The breakfast served in a fairly dark old cafe(though there are some tables outside if it's not too hot) was nice with lots of variety in choices etc. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Paros.
