“Nice hotel - poorly managed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2012

Four of us stayed here in early September near the beginning of an eleven week trip. this was the most disappointing hotel of our entire trip. Although our room was very comfortable and the hotel itself is very pretty and well maintained this was overshadowed by the virtually inedible inclusive breakfast. We made the mistake of having dinner at the restaurant on our first night only to find that most of the menu items were unavailable although we were the only patrons in the restaurant - for good reason. We were also require to pay a deposit for our pool towels and if we wanted to change pool towels during our stay we would have had to pay a further fee. As it turns out we didn't require new towels as the pool was freezing cold and swimming was not an option. The hotel also has a policy prohibiting you to bring your own food or beverages to the pool, and also refuses to provide ice if you wish some for your room. View rooms are very limited and our ocean view room was comprised of seeing a sliver of the water through the buildings. Although the hotel advertises WIFI being available in the rooms, we were only able to access it in the hotel lobby. This hotel advertises itself as a four star when in reality it is only a two star.

Since years we go for holidays to Paros. In this time we are discovered the hotel Contaratos Beach. Already the first time pleased it us so well that we became repeater. That was 1995. Since that time the family invested repeatendly, reconditioned the buildings and the surroundings. They also enlarge the offer of meals and beverages, e.g. the breakfast. All the times we had a cordial receipt with our arrival. That gives us a good feeling for holidays. What we particularly estimate is the family atmosphere, the attention and friendliness opposite us. Special wishes will be realised if it’s possible. The beach opposite the hotel and near village Naoussa make the holiday relaxing. We are already looking forward to the next time.

Our travel agent booked 4 nights here at the end of our busy Greek holiday for some chill out time. So glad they did.
The location, facilities, food, service & location are of the highest quality!
The location right opposite a quiet beach, along with the pool makes it the perfect resort hotel to just relax & chill out.

We had a really good time, the hotel is wonderful and staff are delightful. Rooms very well appointed. The pool was lovely. Location ideal, just a very short walk to the beach. Plenty of comfortable sun beds at the hotel and on the beach. Breakfast fine, and prices for mini bar and room service very reasonable. Our evening walks to the village for dinner were very enjoyable and the atmosphere perfect. Altogether a delightful relaxing holiday.

We stayed the first week of September 2012 for only 2 nights, and wish we had more time to enjoy here. I give it 5 stars as compared to other options in Greece. The room wasn't the most spacious, but had a great view to the pool and beach with a balcony. The bathroom was small, but very efficient/updated/"new"in that the shower didn't leak everywhere like so many other places in Greece/Europe. From speaking with the staff, the property has been renovated, and it definitely shows. The pool is beautiful and is very deep overall -- not the best for very young kids, but the adjoining kids pool makes up for it. The beach couldn't be more convenient with little crowds and their own chairs and umbrellas available for guests to use. There is a shower to rinse off the salt/sand as you come back to the property.
The walk to town takes about 10-15 minutes and is quite nice vs. being in town the the noise of the evening crowd at times. If you are looking for a place with a view, great pool, beach, and close to town, look no further....
The beds are comfortable too with quality linens. Wi-fi worked well in the room via iPad.

Room Tip: I believe all the rooms would have a view to the water/pool, but there are some towards the back tha...

We stayed at the Contaratos Beach Hotel on Paros Island as recently as last month, August 2012. This was our third visit. On one occasion, we traveled there with two other couples. All agreed that it was an ideal Greek island hotel.

Great location, within walking distance to the nearby town Naoussa, a town where the ferry boats do not stop so tourists tend to be long term. Naoussa offers great cafes, bakeries, and restaurants. The Contaratos Beach Hotel is across a quiet street from the beach, has an excellent kitchen, free breakfasts and the best outdoor hotel pool I've ever seen.

The friendly staff adds to the pleasant stay. The hotel rates are quite reasonable for high quality hotel. The Contaratos Hotel is what island vacations are all about.

We really enjoyed our stay at Contaratos Beach, the property was lovely and very clean and the staff pleasant, relaxed and helpful. Like most of Greece I imagine, 4 stars is not the equivalent of 4 stars elsewhere in the world facilities-wise, so just keep this in mind but the place was still very nice! Internet was not included but once paid for it was unlimited, which was appreciated. The breakfast each day was a simple but fresh buffet which could use a little variation as the same thing when you are there for a week is a bit repetitive!

The first room we were shown was quite small with two beds when we had booked a double as we are a couple (why?) but upon asking for a double room we were shown to a much larger and nicer room with a double bed. The rooms were kept spotless by the staff who also replaced the towels every day. All the rooms had temperature-controlled airconditioning, which made sleeping at night very pleasant and also included a hot tub in the bathroom. The room also contained a mini-bar which was well-priced. The pool was gorgeous and looked exactly like the photo and the beach directly in front, which had umbrellas and sunbeds included for guests, was also gorgeous. The only problem was the beach was quite windy some of the time but nothing they can do about that, so we simply hired scooters and went elsewhere. The pool also had a bar next to it and the staff made great cocktails. We didn't have dinner at the hotel but I wish we had after reading the reviews of it!

Room Tip: If you are not happy with the first room you are shown, ask nicely and if they have space they will...
