At the risk of repeating other reviewers, I just want to say that Hotel Grottas #1 rating is well-deserved. My husband and I stayed for 8 nights in early June , and I can honestly say that I've never stayed at a hotel where the owners and staff have been so hospitable and helpful.Dmitris picked us up at the port and was always ready with a smile and advice. "Mama" is rightly famous for her delicious breakfasts of homemade goodies, my favorite being the fig and cheese tart, a little bit of savoury with the sweet. My mouth waters just thinking of it.We were welcomed by Nikoletta offering us a welcome drink of the island's famous kitron or her Dad's (Adonis ) delicious homemade wine. The wine became a daily habit-before watching the sunset and a walk to town for dinner, we would relax in their comfortable lounge with a glass, check our emails ( free ), and talk a little with Marie, the very friendly receptionist. Nikoletta went above and beyond. She has a lovely sense of humor and took time out of her own schedule to give us a tour of the restored olive press she and her husband own. We met her lovely son and then Adonis took us to his wine cellar and family church and showed us his beautiful garden.Who says you have to speak Greek?( Though it's always nice to give it a try ). With a hand on his heart and a smile, he conveyed all that was needed.and made my 3rd trip to Naxos ( our 1st at Grotta ) my most special.You will not be disappointed if you stay there. The beach is not so nice, but the views are and worth it if you have a sea view room. From there you can watch the memorable sunsets. St George beach is certainly walkable and many restaurants are 5-10 minutes walk away from the hotel. Do rent a car( they can arrange delivery at the hotel ) to see the mountain villages-so many excellent and unusual photo ops. Everyone we met was so friendly and very willing to " make conversation" and especially because of Grotta and the Lionas family, our 5th trip to Greece was our best!
