Paros was the last island we visited on our Greek holidays. We had stayed at other hotels, but a lot of them didn't have the amenities that this one had, such a pool bar, restaurant, big lobby/common area, which was nice and made our stay there more relaxing.
The owner Marco picked us up at the port and got into a great conversation with us on the way home, talking about the island, what to do, where to go, etc. He is a real nice, kind person, very personable, loved to explain things, to converse with his guests.
We loved the place because it was such a agreeable place to stay, it's bright, clean and pretty. Breakfast was really good, better than most continental breakfasts with fruit, cheeses, ham, yogurt, orange juice, jams, breads, cereal, etc.
Our rooms (we had one for us and one for our kids) were side by side, on the main floor, right around the front desk and we loved the location. Easy to get in and out, and it felt like we were in a home, rather than hotel. They have older furniture in rooms, but it's the hotel style, you'll notice antiques around (owners have Swiss background) and they fit the place just fine.
There's a family of cats that considered the hotel their home, like in every Greek town there are always cats around and our kids absolutely loved seeing the little kitties and petting them. Now they all want a cat...
The owner was really friendly and incredibly helpful. Greek hospitality at its best! We told him we wanted to go see Naousa in the evening and he offer a drive there. Told us where we could find good and reasonably cheap and away from the crowds. He actually drove us to Naousa and did it again on the last day, when we had already returned our rental car. And he drove us back to the port on our last day. All for free.
We wanted to rent a car and he offered to do it for us, getting us a great deal too.
There is a bus that takes you right into the village, but the cost of a cab is less or the same as 5 bus tickets we payed once for our family. So a taxi for a family is usually a better idea. However be aware that when ferry arrives at the port, all cabs head that way, and you may be stuck trying to get a cab in Naousa for a long, long time with no single cab in sight. So it's a good idea to know the times ferries come and go, if you need to depend on that type of transportation.
The beach you can walk to from the hotel isn't really a beach people use, they rather take the bus to other beaches or rent a car. The hotel isn't one of those right on the water, but we realized that in Paros, being such a small island, you want to drive around and try different beaches, because they are really pretty and different. We loved Santa Maria beach.
The owner's wife likes to cook and they actually tell you to save one night for a greek meal at the hotel. It was such a good meal, and it was nice to be able to stay in one night after a hectic day of touring and be served good food with on the varanda outside the restaurant.
You can't go wrong choosing this hotel and we probably will if we ever go to Paros again
