“Very nice view! Ideal for Kitesurfung”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

On the sea, near the Kitesurf clubs, with fantastic view and excellent service.
Must for anyone looking for some adventure and relax at the same time.
Close to the airport and 2 minutes from the ferry to Antiparos

Then this is the place to be for kitesurfers and windsurfers. Otherwise there is a beautiful swimming pool, massage room, playground for children.
The staff is elegant and very professional with French standards and much better service than what you usually get in Greece.
Breakfast is abundant with variety and the buffet at night is fine, but I would advise trying the local fish restaurants of Anti Paros, Thea for gourmet, Naousa town for fish as well and bars for party.
Rent a car to go to the best beaches for swimming as golden beach.

The Holiday Sun has fully functional comfortable rooms and spacious apartments. Ideally located on the beach and 100 meters from the best kitesurfing location in the Aegean Sea and one of the best in Europe. Its a low key affair and very casual. The managers are fantastic and very friendly, and happy to organise trips etc,.

I would highly recommend the restaurant. Xavier, the French owner and his cook serve not only the best food but also make you feel welcome and wish you could linger just a little bit longer in laid back Atmosphere.

For shopping make the 15 minute drive to Paros Xora. If you want jet set atmosphere take the 5 minute ferry ride to the sister island of Antiparo where amongst others Tom Hanks has his summerhouse.

Room Tip: Rooms with window to garden and sea are best for kids

I stayed there for a week with friends to kitesurf in Pounda (Sept-2012).

The good:
+ ideal location, very close to Pounda kitesurf spot (you can rent scooters or motorbikes to go the Parikia or travel around the island)
+ very nice hotel with private beach
+ beach volleyball, pool
+ very nice and helpful staff (mostly French, as they work a lot with French travel agencies)
+ nice rooms with air conditioning
+ very good value for money as we shared 4-bed bedrooms with breakfast and dinner included
+ the hotel was really quiet in mid-September, somedays we were the only guests in the hotel!
+ the bar has a nice list of cocktails and beers to enjoy

The bad:
- the swimming pool: it looks extremely nice but when you dive in it you realise it's extremely salty and chlorinated!
- the food: a bit inconsistent (maybe because it was the end of the season) with canned fruits for breakfast (among other dishes, you can still have a good breakfast) and sometimes nice fish or meat for dinner

We came back to Holiday sun and once again had a very good time. The hotel location is very nice with a beatiful rsunset view. The hotel personnel is very friendly and most of all we had fantastic kite conditions.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms is a must

The location is very nice with a beautifull sunset view. A very quiet place with friendly personnel and good services. The island is great for relax and also an excellent place for kite and windsurf. Eventually, if you get bored, there are many other options to fullfill your holliday with ''glorious nights'' in Mikonos or the beautifull landscapes of Santorini.
As a friendly advice be carefully what you rent if you need a car. There are old and nasty cars rented by most of the ren-a-car firms. My bad experience was with Europcar. You...take your chances. If you return the car with a schratch they will charge you overrated. As I understood from others this happens with most of the rent a car agencies even if they are well known allover the world. Here, the standards do not apply.
Happy hollydays!!!
