Contaratos Beach Hotel
Ranked #22 of 46 Hotels in Naoussa
Reviewed 11 July 2011

We just arrived back home after a week holiday at the Contoratos Hotel. Nothing bad to say about the rooms as they were cleaned excellent every day - and the area around the swimming pool and bar was nice and tidy at all times. Lovely pool!

Breakfast:
However, the breakfast was indeed to anything we enjoyed. Having travelled all around the world and staying av various hotels, our family all concluded that this breakfast was not anything we enjloyed. Bread was not always fresh and the quality ws not good. If you wanted eggs and bacon, they would charge extra for this.

Staff:
Varied service - som exeptionally excellent and smiling waiters. But we felt uncomfortable
several times a we felt the "owner" were at all times wathcing and controlling guests as if he did not trust anyone. Could be that we weere the only once with this experience - but we felt "watched." Therefore we spent mot of our time outside the hotel complex. The owner and a helper also were sitting in the berakfast area, checking and watching while guests arrived for breakfast. We have of course been at hotels before were they check on a piece of paper that you have had your breakfast. But this is a very small hotell, and it was uncomfortabel as we felt they were checking how much food each person put on their plate and that they were a bit too eager in the "controlling of guests."

The hotel is situated verly close to both beach and town and is in a very quiet area.

We will not visit this hotel again.

This is our personal experience, and we are sure that others might have other experiences. I gues it all depends on what you expect and what you prefer. However
we did not enjoy the "controlling" and "watching" guets at all times. We have not experienced this at any hotel before, and we have travelled all around the world and stayed in many hotels.

We stayed at the Contaratos Beach Hotel for two weeks and had a wonderful time. The hotel was extremely clean and very peaceful for the majority of the time we were there (only spoilt by four noisy American young men who luckily were only staying for a few days). The beach is just across the road from the hotel and has lovely soft golden sand and very clear water. The staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. There is a restaurant at the hotel and the food was superb. Alternatively you can walk to the village of Naoussa in about five minutes, a maze of pretty narrow streets leads you down to the harbour where there are lots of restaurants and tavernas to choose from. Would definitely recommend both the hotel and the resort. Paros is a good base to visit other nearby islands such as Naxos, Mykonos and Santorini

We can't fault this hotel. Lovely staff. As we have difficulty with steps, we were switched efficiently and willingly to a downstairs room. Both rooms very well appointed. Ask if you prefer a walk in shower to a bath. Lovely pool, and ideal access to it from the ground floor room. Plenty of comfortable sun beds at the hotel and on the beach. When we were there, the beach was a bit messy with plastic bits, but it was early in the season.
Breakfast fine, and prices for mini bar and room service very reasonable. They didn't advertize that they did evening meals which were excellent, indeed as good as any we had in Naoussa. Altogether a delightful relaxing holiday.

Lovely place with its own beach across the road and big pool on site. Staff friendly and willing to help with car rental etc.Breakfast was a bit light on but besides that ok. Lovely restaraunts down on waterfront but the wind made it a bit cold. Rooms good and surrounds make it very laid back. Atrip to Antiparos amust.

The place and the atmosfare at the hotel was very nice.
The room was nice and clean.
Many thanks to the man who had the responsibility for the breakfast, bar at the beach, beach and at least the resturant in the evening. I do not have the name. He knew the words of simplicity and service. He is a good employee.

We stayed for 19 days here in August. The hotel is, on the whole, nice, and we had a great holiday in Paros. But what is wrong with the staff here? Some of them seem to have some sort of a grievance, it is as if staying at the hotel causes them some sort of offence! The room was nice, the balcony was good, the view was of the sea as requested, the pool was nice, the beach was near, the hotel was relatively quiet, (but very nice and quiet at night), and the hotel is conveniently placed for a 10 minute walk into Naoussa. BUT, what about the negative points? You can't use the jacuzzi, except for 3 hours in the afternoon. (We had to ask two people for the reason for this - the first didn't know - apparently it is out of consideration for the people in nearby rooms - although I never saw it used). There is no balsamic vinegar to be had, (apparently, although your salad is covered in it). There is no decaf coffee either. So we went and brought some, and gave it to the staff. They made it once and then "couldn't find it", although the owner, (to be fair), "found" it for them and made them use it. The breakfast buffet was poor, (fried eggs cost extra!). At one point my partner was sat on the edge of my sun-lounger on the beach, and a member of staff came over the road from the hotel and told her to get off! These petty irritations subtracted a little from what should have been a great stay. Now that I know I won't be made particularly welcome, I would stay at the hotel again, but I don't think I could reccommend this place to my friends. And it is over-priced.

We stayed in the Bay apartments for a week and loved it! Fiona on reception was really welcoming, friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The apartments were pretty, clean and comfortable. It was good to be able to use the pool and beach sunbeds at the Contaratos Beach Hotel. With reference to suggestions that the staff there are rude - I think it may seem like this because their English isn't great. They still seemed quite smiley when we were around the hotel. Naoussa itself is really lovely. A range of restaurant, bars, cafes and a beautiful marina and well kept streets. I'd recommend hiring some kind of transport to see the rest of Paros and Antiparos. After this trip Paros is now up there as one of my favourite Greek islands.
