a VirtualTourist member asked on Feb 17, 2008
I am looking for a double room to spend 5 days or so in the summer. I have been to Naxos before and remember Ag. Prokopios was a particularly long beach, one end of which was suprisingly innaccesable (and where clothing was optional lol) and the other end was near Ag. Anna, had a bus / taxi area and a taverna. In particular, there was a bar called 'odyssea' and I stayed in a room owned by the owners of that bar, two German women. I have since lost their details and so I am looking for hotels / rooms in that same area, as close to the beach / bus / taxi etc stop as possible. I would like a range of options as I have not yet decided ether to go cheap, or expensive,
Thanks for your help
There are several contributors on Fodors.com and Lonelyplanet.com who are very informed when it comes to Naxos. I suggest you repost your questions over there.
If you decide to opt for cheap, simple accommodation, there are a couple of places that I've stayed at and would recommend in Agios Prokopios:
Hotel Agios Prokopios (www.prokopis.com) and the adjacent Hotel Dimitra.
You can read my full reviews here if you're interested:

Both of these hotels (run by the same family) are located just a few minutes walk from the beach, the bus stop and the main taxi rank in the centre of Agios Prokopios. Agia Anna is just a short walk away along the coast.
The rooms at both hotels are clean and well furnished, with kitchenettes and en-suite bathrooms. Hotel Agios Prokopios has a nice swimming pool and outdoor breakfast area.
Enjoy your trip to Naxos!
I suppose that Aghios Prokopios has changed a lot, since your last visit there!As a spend all my summer weekends to Naxos, I can assure you that:
a)There are plenty of hotels and rooms to let that cater to all budgets
b)There is a plethora of tavernas and restaurants to choose from
c)During the "high season", there is a bus every quarter (from 08.00 in the morning till 02.00 the next morning) that connects Aghios Prokopios to the Town of Naxos and practically, everything is close to the bus stop (last year the bus ticket costed EUR 1,20)
d)certainly, there is no shortage of taxis! (Naxos-Aghios Prokopios: EUR 7,00, last year).
A website that I can recommend you is the following:
You do not "reveal" your nationality!!! If you do not come from an English-speaking country, I could provide you with more information, mostly in German, but also in French and Italian.
I am sure you will fall in love with Naxos again!
Thanks to everyone that has replied, hostel bookers looks like a brilliant find!
