“Wonderful place for a very happy holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2011

I would agree with all the other reviews that have rated Margarita Studios as 'Excellent'. The setting is really beautiful and you can easily pass days just relaxing by the wonderful pool. If you want to explore the island you can easily drive to several beaches within 15 minutes, or you can walk to the local beaches in less than 5 minutes. Stella is the perfect host and can tell you how to reach places of interest around the island. The rooms are very clean, and fresh linen and towels are provided every day. The home cooking is superb and we ate at Margarita at least once every day of our stay. There are also good, basic cooking facilities in the rooms. There are several other tavernas within a 5 minute walk. If you want a really relaxing holiday away from it all, but with easy access to the nightlife in the town, this is the place to stay.

Separate rooms, each one with a private balcony / yard, they seem like bungalows.
They are traditionally decorated, very clean and comfortable.

Nice outdoor decoration with a cozy pool.

The personnel was very polite.

Stella, the owner, is a very smart and polite lady, who personally took care of our stay , as if we were close friends or relatives.
She also runs the restaurant, offering amazing dishes cooked by her mother, Ms. Margarita.

The recipes there are divine, the food is absolutely home made and cooked with excellent materials from the country and sea of Paros.

The last day we ordered lobster pasta , and as a greek - island lover (and greek food lover) I can assure you, it was the best lobster pasta I've ever had !

The place is ideal for family vacations, located in a small fishing-village, Abelas. The village is very near - only 5 mins away from Naoussa, the largest , most picturesque and most crowded town of Paros.

I absolutely recommend Margarita Studios for your summer vacations and I personally intend to stay again.

We stayed in Paros for 10 days, and chose Margarita's after browsing the web and some recommendations from friends. The place was all that we wanted it to be: we took the green suite which gave us plenty of room for ourselves and the children, we enjoyed cooking in the small kitchen, laying by the pool, and most of all - eating in the Taverna, the taste of the stuffed tomatoes will stay with us forever (or until our next visit).
Stella is indeed all that everyone here write about - warm, energetic, friendly and lovely, and I too took the cooking course and prepared superb dishes for our friends when we came home.
As Paros is a small island and we had a car for the whole 10 days, the location was also great, although I find it hard to think of an not great location in this peaceful and beautiful island.

We had a very pleasant stay there. The location is away from town centers thus it offers great quiet and relaxation. The stuff is more than friendly and the restaurant is just amazing! We chose to eat there most f the days. We stayed for a week.
The room was nice, not luxurious, but "honest" and very good for the money we paid.

Just returned from a 10 day vacation at Margarita Studios and the vacation was beyond our expectations! We found the place to be warm and friendly with more than a personal touch. Stella, the manager, is one of a kind-nice, friendly and supplied all necessary information as well as being an intelligent and interesting person to talk to.
To all this, you can add the delicious cooking of Margarita (Stella's mother) and Stella, who were perfect and after looking for Greek food on the island, we decided their's was the best.
The rooms were clean and nice, although quite basic. The pool is nice, clean and big enough to swim laps.
The location was perfect for us since it was close enough to Taoes Center, where we took yoga and dancing lessons and 200 meters from the sea. We also enjoyed the cooking class that we took with Stella. Since the island is small, we travelled with a car and the location of the hotel was very convenient. We can't wait for another opportunity to return!

We all loved our stay here. The pool, location etc are all great, but the real selling point and wow factor is Stella and her family, and THE FOOD!

We knew Ambelas was a small place and were happy with the location, with some tavernas (although why you would ever want to eat elsewhere is beyond me) and beaches within a few minutes walk. For some Ambelas may be too small, but Naoussa is only 5 minutes away by car. We used hire car, taxi and bus all for reasonable prices.

The pool area is lovely with clean facilities, good quality chairs etc, and lovely views. The 'baby pool' is well shaded. Other nice 'extras' are things like a swing seat, playground (typical greek health and safety but we are realistic not paranoid parents) that may be good when not so hot, and Obi the lovely friendly dog! I bet any kids who start afraid of dogs will go home as dog lovers!

We had one of the 'stone houses' rather than a room or suite. These are very big although dated. We viewed the green suite while there, and it was gorgeous. The other rooms look good too, so will try a different room else next time if we can afford it! The cleaners are very thorough and friendly.

Stella ensures the general atmosphere of the place is happy and friendly. She is chatty without being over friendly, and is helpful with phone calls, lifts etc. My daughter cried when she left her, and is missing Stella :-(

Finally... the best till last.... the food is gorgeous! Best kalamari, anchovies and sardines ever had! The sauce with the prawns was to die for! Worth going to Paros just for the food ;-) Special dishes every day. No wonder Stella seemed to have lots of local regulars who joined us for food in the evening. Stella (and her mum) deserve the great reputation.

this hotel is nice and clean ,the hostess Stella is very friendly ; relaxing by the pool is beautiful ; if you don't want to go out at nigth, you can eat there , the restaurant is just close to the pool; i is a really beautiful place to stay ; but you need a car or a scooter to drive around the island , because ther e are only 3 buses a day to AMBELAS ;
the greek taverns along the sea are also great to have dinner or lunch : it 's a lot cheaper and quieter tnan in Naoussa
