Paxos Hotels – Where To Stay On This Wonderful Greek Island


So you want to go to Paxos? Great – where can you stay?

In this post titled Paxos Hotels –where to stay on this wonderful Greek Island, I will tell you the six actual hotels on Paxos. I will give you basic information about the hotels, where they are, web addresses and up to date contact details for each hotel (which I have checked myself).

There are only six hotels on the Greek Island of Paxos, but a quick internet search will suggest more than six hotels. In researching this post there seemed to be endless villas, apartments and aparthotels that came up when I put the search term “Paxos Hotels” into Google.

If you are a hotel in Paxos and I have missed you off the list please let me know and I will add you to this post.

Hopefully now when you put that term in this post appears and tells you about Paxos Hotels and nothing else!

This is not of course a review of the hotels on Paxos – there are plenty of other websites for that good stuff.

Here are the Paxos Hotels

I thought starting with just the list of hotels was as good a place as any! This list of (just) hotels will help you narrow down your search if all you are after is a hotel.

The six hotels on Paxos – in alphabetical order

  • Amfitriti Hotel – Lakka
  • Hotel Bastas – Lakka
  • Hotel Margina – Gaios
  • Torri e Merli – Lakka
  • Paxos Beach Hotel – between Gaios and Mongonissi
  • Paxos Club Resort – just outside Gaios

And here they are on a map courtesy of good old Google.

Yes – that is it – there are only 6 hotels in Paxos.

And to be completely honest we have only stopped at Hotel Bastas.

Please note that all the information on this page is accurate at the time of writing in July 2019.

I will write a separate post about places to stay other than hotels, including houses, studios, apartments. aparthotels and villas on Paxos. And boats of course. And maybe even camping!

The information in this post.

I have used the information on the hotels websites to try to give you a balanced view of the hotels, some I have visited, some I have stayed in and for some I have done neither.

I have contacted every hotel to make sure that the contact details are correct and up to date.

OK – lets look at the hotels one by one, starting with the hotels in the capital of the island, Gaios.

Gaios

This is the capital of the island and is located about 4 miles down the island on the east coast. Most ferries arrive at the port of Gaios, and it is a very nice short walk along the waterfront to the centre of the town.

The island has a population of circa 2,500, with the largest concentration of people being located in Gaios, which is by far the largest town on Paxos.

And that is the hotels of Paxos.

As you will see whilst there are only seven hotels on Paxos they are all rather different. There is something for most peoples tastes among this small selection.

Hotel availability

I need to tell you that at the time of writing this post in July there was very little availability in August – most of the hotels are fully booked. If you are thinking of going to Paxos next year I strongly advise you to book early or you may be disappointed.

You can book any of these hotels direct or using one of the many affiliate websites. I have to say that we prefer to communicate directly with hotels and book direct when we can.

We have stopped at Hotel Bastas twice and loved it. I am sure that the other hotels are absolutely fine, and to be honest I have not heard bad words said about any of them but am not able to advise on which hotel is the best as we have only stopped at Hotel Bastas.

Before I go what about Antipaxos?

Well there are no hotels on Antipaxos, but I will tell you the places that you can stay on Antipaxos in another post.

And as for those villas, apartments etc – check back to my website Paxos Travel Guide for a long list post.
