The bedrooms are decorated in sicilian style and have plenty of storage and hangers. Our room was at the rear of the hotel but we had a balcony and a side view of the...

We found this place through one of the local guide books. The signs in Naxos are good - its at the south side of town. A little tricky to find but worth it.

My husband and I too have just returned from a 12 night stay at the Arathena Rocks. Lovely old-fashioned, family run hotel.

Me and my husband have just returned from a two week stay and we loved it. The hotel is friendly, well run and well maintained. The room we stayed in had a sea view and was spacious and well furnished. The decor throughout the hotel is beautiful. We went half board and although the food was of a good quality,...
