Cyano Suites, Naxos

Stylish Cycladic-style suites with views of the Temple of Apollo, private balconies, and homemade breakfast

Overview

Located just outside of the center of Naxos Town, Cyano Suites offers a peaceful stay with easy access to the island's lively culture. The Portara or Temple of Apollo is just a 10-minute walk, as is the Venetian Castle overlooking the Chora. Stroll the waterfront restaurants and shops of Naxos' port in the same amount of time. Favorite beaches like Agia Anna and Plaka are 20-25 minutes away, while impressive sights like the fallen Faragi Kouros statue is 20 minutes away.

The hotel's five suites follow the traditional Cycladic style of whitewashed walls and simple design. All include balconies with clear views of the sea and Portara, perfect for watching the sunset. The Grand and Premium Suites come with an indoor hot tub, which is exposed and visible from the bed. In fact, all rooms have unique layouts, as the Grand and Junior Suites feature exposed bathtubs in the living room. If you need more space or are traveling with family, the Grand and Premium Suites include multiple sofa beds.

What sets Cyano Suites apart is its authenticity, as the hotel is deeply rooted in the island's culture and history. You'll wake up to breathtaking views of the Temple of Apollo from your room, which previous Kimkim travelers have highlighted as the most memorable aspect of their stay. You can enjoy Naxos' famous cuisine by trying the homemade breakfast of homemade pastries, pies, and dishes that are served at the hotel's sister property a few blocks away.

Our room was gorgeous and unique. We took room photos to remember it always. The view was fabulous. The only problem was that we had to walk to a sister restaurant for breakfast. This hotel did not have a lobby. It was a collection of rooms in a building without a typical front and clearly marked signage. It was hard to find our way back because it is not on a main road with typical frontage. We entered and exited through patio doors to our suite. The manager had an office at the sister... Read more

It was hard to find our way back because it is not on a main road with typical frontage. We entered and exited through patio doors to our suite. The manager had an office at the sister hotel. We had to reach him by phone. These factors made us a bit uncomfortable because it so unusual. Knowing this now, I would not hestitate to return here. The suite was gorgeous— as was the view.

What a hidden gem. Hands down the nicest place I have ever stayed. The location was incredible, with sunset views over the Temple of Apollo from the bedroom balcony (one of THREE balconies in our room!). Exceptionally clean and peaceful. The suite is just far enough from the busy harbor walk to be quiet and secluded but within a ten minute walk of everything you need, including several excellent restaurants.

George and his wife were lovely and kind hosts. She is a fabulous baker and cook. The breakfasts here were memorable and five star!
The suite we had overlooked The Temple of Apollo. Very scenic with ocean view and romantic porch. It was a huge, lovely appointed space with two bathrooms! Very decadent and remarkably luxurious.

Tips for future travelers

We had a terrific dinner at Sarris Fish Tavern and a fabulous dinner at dal Professore Mediterranean Cuisine. Try to visit both! Saint George Beach was gorgeous! 20 euro to sit on the beach under an umbrella. We ordered a fabulous lunch brought to us by friendly, kind waiters. Loved it!

We stayed at this wonderful hotel for about 11 days in September 2021. We had a suite on the ground floor that was very convenient for comings and goings. Although it looked out on the parking lot, the view beyond -- the Agean Sea and the Potara -- was stunning. It was particularly gorgeous in the morning and at sundown.

We stayed at this wonderful hotel for about 11 days in September 2021. We had a suite on the ground floor that was very convenient for comings and goings. Although it looked out on the parking lot, the view beyond -- the Agean Sea and the Potara -- was stunning. It was particularly gorgeous in the morning and at sundown. Cyano Suites is a short walk (maybe 10 minutes) from central Naxos Town -- away from the commotion but still close at hand.

The suite was very modern and comfortable. The placement of the bathtub in the living room was a little "odd" (we used it only for cleaning our feet). The rest of the bathroom was behind the raised king bed (with a wonderful view out the front French doors) -- one half (the walk-in shower) on the left and the sink/toilet area on the right (we had to walk around the bed to get from one side to the other). A little funky, but we really liked it regardless. A really nice touch was the stocked refrigerator that was replenished every day (all gratis!). Highly recommended!

The included breakfast was provided at the sister Adriani Hotel a few blocks away. The morning walk to breakfast wasn't as convenient as it would be if breakfast were in the same building, but the morning stroll to and from was always a nice start to the day. The breakfast itself was always spectacular! For such a small clientele the choices were overwhelming and everything was always delicious. We wanted to try some of everything, but there were always too many choices. The hot breakfast pies (both sweet and savory) were the highlight, but the breakfast desserts were a close second. The pies (and, I believe, the desserts) were all prepared on site! And there was so much more (e.g., drinks, fruit, cold cuts, cheese, cereal)!

Our host (the gentleman behind the desk; sorry, I can't remember his name) was always so helpful and friendly and always anxious to serve us. After noticing that I had badly skinned my shin after climbing a rock on a catamaran sail he offered some much needed fatherly advice (I'm 68 years old and probably at least 20 years older than him) -- (paraphrasing) "We're not young anymore; we need to take care of ourselves." I needed that advice -- the fact that I was 68 and maybe shouldn't have been climbing on big rocks never crossed my mind at the time. I obviously remember his advice and won't soon, if ever, forget it. My new Dad. 😊

In its own way, the Cyano Suites was probably one of the most pleasant places we have ever stayed -- the room itself (funky or not), the view, and the included breakfast. All top notch.

Tips for future travelers

Consider an upstairs suite to possibly improve the view somewhat (albeit less convenient). If/when we return, we will choose a ground floor suite again. If you'd rather not walk a few blocks to and from breakfast, consider booking your room at the sister Adriani Hotel (where breakfast is served). The views from rooms at the Adriani Hotel may not be as spectacular as the Cyano Suites. Also, it is a short walk into town. If you want to be in the middle of the action, this is probably not the best choice, but I am sure it is quieter!

Authenticity & Character
Very modern and unique rooms. Stunning view. Wonderful breakfasts.
Location
For us, perfect. Quiet, but only a short walk into town. Others may prefer a location "inside" Naxos Town.
Staff
See my review above. Also, the kitchen staff was very friendly. The chef was often there so we could compliment her on her wonderful creations.
Cleanliness & Comfort
The room was alway immaculate. The comfortable bed. The generously stocked (and restocked) refrigerator.
