The tourist industry of Paros is well-developed almost everywhere on the island.
Nonetheless, its main towns, Parikia and Naoussa, attract the vast majority of visitors every year.
The rest of the complexes can be found in smaller villages or along the coastline, offering unique character and contributing to the local tourist infrastructure.

Although Paros is a relatively small island, the options available successfully accommodate the needs of thousands of travelers every year.

BEST BY CATEGORY

For your accommodation, it is highly recommended to start by deciding which hotel category is the best one for your needs.
To help you pick the best one for the type of holiday you are organizing, we provide information on the hotel categories in Paros.

LUXURY

❤ Our recommendations:
Parilio (Naoussa Livadia) • Stagones (Naoussa) • Summer Senses (Logaras beach) • Naoussa Hills (Naoussa) • Bohemian (Naoussa) • White Dunes (Santa Maria)

Luxury hotels prioritize hospitality and comfort, as well as design and architecture.
The majority of them are housed in newly built or renovated Cycladic buildings with a unique cubic style and whitewashed walls, reflecting the sunlight and creating a bright atmosphere.
They offer at least one swimming pool with an elegant pool bar. Other facilities include top-rated restaurants with sea views, fully furnished terraces, and even private beach sections with sunbeds for the guests.
Another great thing about luxury options is the pricing. Unlike the neighboring Cycladic islands of Mykonos and Santorini, luxury options keep their prices at an affordable rate, starting at 200€ per night.
About ⅓ of the island's offers belong to the luxury category, including options in Naoussa among other locations.
Make sure to book one early enough, as availability may be limited during the summer.

AFFORDABLE LUXURY

❤ Our recommendations:
White Blossom (Parikia) • Villa Kelly (Naoussa) • Anemomylos Residence (Naoussa) • Parian Village (Livadia) • Glyfa Village (Glyfa) • Golden Beach Hotel (Golden Beach)

Options belonging to this category allow you to enjoy luxury amenities, facilities, and services for an affordable price.
Many boutique hotels provide great value bundles, especially for rooms and suites that do not offer sea views.
Recently renovated rooms with all kinds of amenities and a stylish design are available for prices as low as 100 - 200 € per night.
Almost half of the island's offers fall under this category, making it easy to save money with no compromise besides the views.
You will find them in the 2 main villages (Parikia and Naoussa), as well as at seafront locations (Drios, Golden Beach, Aliki, and more).
It is recommended to book them months in advance as these deals sell out easily, especially if you plan on visiting during the high season.

NEAR THE BEACH

❤ Our recommendations:
Golden Beach Hotel (Golden Beach) • Amaryllis (Golden Beach) • Tarsa (Drios) • Glyfa Village (Glyfa) • Nissiotiko (Drios) • Kalypso (Naoussa)

For travelers who want to experience the relaxing and peaceful side of Paros, finding a place near the beach is a fantastic idea.
Many beachfront options are located in quiet seaside settlements or near popular beaches where many times, you can also find watersport facilities. These hotels have mostly a traditional Cycladic design.
Livadia, Golden Beach (Chryssi Akti), Aliki, Drios,  and Piso Livadi offer some of the best facilities for families or couples and they may be beachfront or less than 5 minutes away from the seashore on foot.
Such locations are not considered remote, which means that traditional taverns and shops with local products will be available nearby.
A car rental, however, is highly recommended when staying near the beach so that you can travel around freely.
For a stress-free vacation, consider booking your hotel a few months in advance.

VILLAS

❤ Our recommendations:
Stagones (Ambelas) • Angels (Naoussa) • Acron (Kolympithres) • Spiti Marie (Aspro Chorio)

There are a plethora of villas built in different villages and beach resorts in Paros that are ideal holiday homes.
They can either be part of a hotel complex or detached buildings.
Renting a villa is a great option for travelers who want to enjoy privacy and luxury as well as a warmer and cozier environment during their holiday. If you are traveling to Paros on a family getaway or with a group of friends, then renting a villa is ideal in terms of comfort as well as good value for money.
In terms of price, although it might cost more than a room or suite, expenses are split among the group.
Most of the villas can accommodate a minimum of 4 individuals. The majority of villas on the island consist of a number of comfortable bedrooms, a sitting room that is usually separated from the dining room, a roomy kitchen, a swimming pool, and a terrace. Occasionally they may be equipped with a serene garden and parking space. Most of them are two-story buildings.
Depending on the location they can also be graced with beautiful sea views.
Lastly, due to their considerable size, they are regarded as a fitting holiday option for travelers that want to spend time relaxing and dining at home.

FAMILY ORIENTED

❤ Some hotel recommendations for families:
Poseidon (Golden Beach) • Golden Beach Hotel (Golden Beach) • Blue and Sea (Drios) • Acquamarina (New Golden Beach) • Acron (Kolymbithres) • Paros Palace (Parikia)

CENTRAL

❤ Our recommendations:
Bethlehem (Parikia) • Alexandra’s Rooms (Livadia) • MerSea (Parikia) • White Blossom (Parikia) • Pandrossos (Parikia) • Nautilus (Parikia)

Without a doubt, central options offer the most convenient kind of accommodation. This category features complexes that are mostly found in the heart of the main villages, only a few steps away from cozy cocktail bars and vibrant clubs that are part of the island's vibrant party scene.
Most of them are housed in beautifully renovated Cycladic buildings with a subtle design and they offer all the essential amenities and services.
The prices are anywhere from low to moderate, depending on the month you visit. The proximity to nightlife hotspots, mini markets, restaurants, and bus stops makes up for the lack of sea views.
It is always wise to book a few months in advance since they are very popular among young travelers who arrive en masse.

BUDGET

❤ Our recommendations:
Diplos (Livadia) • Alexandra’s Rooms (Livadia) • Casa Di Roma (Parikia) • Flora & Angelos (Boutari) • Lalos (Parikia) • Akteon (Logaras)

Budget-friendly options are abundant around the island, although most of them are situated in Parikia and Livadia bay.
They provide all the essential amenities for your comfort, such as air-conditioning and WiFi, although breakfast is usually not included.
Budget options are very popular among backpackers and young people who seek simple lodging to spend the night while using the rest of their time to explore the island.
For budget options, start looking at family-run studios and apartments or small structures, most of which keep up with the latest standards through decent yearly renovations.
Depending on the amenities available, budget rooms cost from 50 to 100 € per night.
Around ¼ of the offer has been categorized as budget-friendly and early booking is a must for summertime visitors.

FOR KITESURFING & WINDSURFING

❤ Our recommendations:
Holiday Sun (Pounda) • Paros Surfing Beach (Santa Maria) • Seesoo (Pounda) • Silver Rocks (New Golden Beach) • Ciel Villas (Pounda) • Acquamarina Resort (New Golden Beach)

If you are a watersport enthusiast, facilities near the famous kitesurfing and windsurfing hotspots of Paros are a must for an unforgettable stay.
For windsurfing fans, options near New Golden Beach or Santa Maria bay are equally good, with close proximity to the seashore that will allow you to join the windsurfing community easily.
Similarly, for kitesurfing enthusiasts, the best lodging area is certainly Pounda, the island's biggest kitesurfing hotspot.
In addition to their traditional Cycladic style, this category offers top-notch amenities and facilities at moderate prices.
For a small extra fee, it is possible to book bundles for groups or individuals that include sessions at the local water sports facilities. The sports centers in these areas offer high-quality equipment to participants and provide guidance for all levels.
If you plan on visiting during the high season, and especially in August, when kitesurfing and windsurfing events and competitions are organized, booking early is a must as lodgings tend to reach full capacity.
