July Naxos hotel confusion, please help.

Jump to last reply

We will be traveling in Naxos for six days on July 21st after a 3 day stay in Santorini. We are a couple in the low 30’s. We are looking for an upper end hotel Luxury Hotel that is not packed with people or kids preferably on the beach (will settle for very close) and prefer a pool. There seems to be an overall lack of upper end / luxury hotels unless I am missing something. It looks like the resorts further down the coast are much quieter and secluded and the Naxos / St. George area will be packed along with the beaches.
We want to be able to go to Naxos City for dinner, late night strolls, and cocktails. We will also have an ATV that we will be using to explore the island and mountain towns. For example a typical itinerary might be:

-Wake up early breakfast
-Set out to explore the island (mountain towns, Naxos city, some days finding a beach and relaxing).
-find a nice little place for lunch or pack one
-back to hotel wind down at pool/beach for a bit then get ready to head out to Naxos for dinner.
-after dinner, head back to hotel and call it a day.
-Repeat (we may spend 1 day lounging at the hotel all day).

Everything seems fine until dinner... We won’t be taking the ATV because it will be dark and we will be having drinks. So as far as I can tell that leaves buses or taxis. How late do these run? How far can we stay down the coast until buses and taxis just don’t make any sense to take into town? I did like the Finakis but that is the furthest hotel down the strip and seems like we would have to stay there all evening. Any other hotel recommendations? I know this is a lot but everyone has wonderful advice and looking for a little direction from the experts. We are so excited to go!
