Naxos Festival recommends accommodation:

Hotel Foinikas: At Pirgaki next to the waves. More exotic that it seems in the picture, but also so island, dressed of the  light and the  blue for the sea and the sky. It has luxury and quality, but we prefer it because of the kindness of mrs Helen, who welcomes us.
Tel.: +30 22850 75230/75045
Fax: 22850 75025

Apollon Hotel: Is located in the picturesque region of Fontana, near the Grotta beach. Just a few minutes from the port of Naxos. We recommend it for the calm, civilized hospitality, as only Despoina known’s offers us, for many years now. She’s the modern Ariadne of Naxos.
