This hotel is much further out from the town and tourist areas than we thought. The internet connection was absolutely terrible (one of the reason we chose it in the first place) so it was difficult to do any work. The lobby was very hot to work in (where there was very slow internet access). The restaurant closed at 9pm even though the signs in the rooms said 10pm. Very loud music was played starting at 8am from the pool bar. They appeared to only have one cd of popular early 90s love songs (and all covers) that was continually played throughout the day, everyday. If you stayed at the pool for 2-3 hours you would hear the same songs 3-4 times. The family room we stayed in had one double bed and one fold out bed that was smaller than a single bed. The best thing about this hotel was its large sized shower.
"Nice place close to the beach, with great hosts."
We stayed in Diamantis Studios for 11 nights, and we loved it.
the room was comfortable and very clean, and it had all the appliances and equipment needed (i.e. pots&pans, cutlery, fridge and cooker tv and air con).
The hosts, Nikos & Andonya were very friendly, helpful but not intrusive so it was perfect for us.
They even supplied us with occasional fresh eggs from their chickens and took us out for dinner to a local taverna which was lovely, and their 2 kids were tireless with our daughter, playing with her and making her feel welcome.
The hotel is situated in a smaller village of Naxos Island and the setting is quite tranquil and relaxing, and we loved our after dinner sitting on the balcony listening to the crickets' singing, and the local beach is one of the best of the whole island and can be almost wind free most days. The swimming pool is a good alternative or works great for a winding down dip in the evening.
The hotel is very close to one of the islands rent-a-car shops and it's very convenient but we rented a car only for a few days and the hosts picked up us from the port late at night and went to take us back there in early morning for our ferry back to athens.
Definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a laidback and chilled days.
We will be coming back.
"Nice Hotel, walking distance from the city centre."
Very nice 'family-type' hotel, close to the city centre, port and the old market. It has been recently renovated and has good facilities and comfortable rooms.
Lobby/Reception area was spacy but not as modern.
Breakfast was plenty and descent for Greek island standards.
Most (if not all) the rooms don't have a sea view. But don't get discouraged, the nearest beach is only a few minutes away.
We stayed here for 6 nights with our 1 year old baby. The place is very pretty and the pool is great. The location is good too- not too far from the harbour at all. The owners however seem to have fallen out of love with the place - the owner is lovely when you talk to her but she is often not around and it's hard to find anyone sometimes...note to owner - you are great and people want to see this!! People will glow about your place if you make that happen. : )
