We stayed in Hotel Poseidon of Paros in the first week of July for nine nights. We stayed in the Grand Suite with sea view. This room type has two separate bedrooms and a living room in between. It also has two separate bathrooms and shower. Since we have two girls aged 15 this was a convenient room. They were neither too far away but still they had independence.
We had a chance to see one of the Superior Double rooms with sea view. This room is also very good, spacious and with its own veranda in front.
The hotel is nicely located next to the Golden Beach which is one of the best beaches in Paros. The beach is 2-3 minutes walk and it is sandy and very convenient for families with small children. The hotel also has a pool. There is another hotel which belongs to the same group next door and you are free to use anyone of the pools. There is drinks service to both pools and also to the beach. Paros is famous for its windy air therefore surfers prefer the island. Golden Beach is a preferred location for surfers and you can enjoy windsurfing and there are also equipment for rent and also lessons.
The hotel facilities are good. The garden and the pool area is maintained well. It has quite a few personnel which is not very common in Greece. The personnel is very helpful and kind. The hotel Manager Constantin always around to check various things and tries to makes sure he helps guests.
The breakfast is open buffet and is one of the good ones I have come across in Greece. It has quite a variety including freshly made pastry and cakes. Unfortunately the lunch and dinner menu is the same and is very limited. So if you are staying for more than a few days like us it gets very repetitive. Almost all guests were also families with kids like us and would have good to have a kids menu. The portions were too big for kids.
There is not much around the hotel within walking distance except for a few other hotels on the Golden beach and a few tavernas. Pros is a small island and it is easy to go around by car so I strongly suggest renting a car or a motorbike. The main town Parikia and the next important establishment Naousa are both 20 minutes by car.
