The best thing by far about this hotel is the fantastic views. After this, everything else is downhill!
The rooms are very small, very basic. The shower has no curtains and is a hand held shower head. The water goes everywhere (a top tip is to move your toilet paper outside the door before showering!)
Hot water is by solar panel, so not bad in the evening and non existent in the morning.
Swimming pool is not very clean, we saw no evidence of any maintenance, but plenty of dead flies and insects floating in the water.
The hotel is 15 to 20 minutes walk to the edge of town and a further 15 minutes to the centre. When walking back at night a torch is helpful, then you have to negotiate the steps back to your room. Our room (15) was 61 steps from reception which is a further 31 steps down to access gate to the beach which is very nice and only costs 2.5 euros for sun beds all day.
The hotel does not provide any towels for use by the pool.
Breakfast was very basic and costs 6 euros if you have to pay. Much better value to be had at one of the many cafes nearby.
The hotel is badly in need of a complete refurbishment and recent painting does not cover up the rotting wooden window and door frames.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Parian Village is a beautiful Cycladic hotel by the sea with spectacular panoramic views of Parikia bay and town, located at the peaceful edge of Livadia beach. Ideally built on slope, it ensures that all its rooms have sea view from their balconies. Just a few minutes from the center and the port of Parikia the visitor finds himself in a magical, sheltered from the wind, place, miniature of the island: spacious courtyards and verandas, Parian marble, cypresses, oleanders, olive trees and a well-tended pool that seems as extension of the sea, compose the hotel scenery. All the aforementioned, in combination with our staff's strong sense of Cycladic hospitality and our ambition to make your vacation memorable, constitute Parian Village the perfect choice for your holidays on Paros. ... more less
