4/10 Fair

Unfortunately despite email communication to the manager prior to arriving, about a transfer to the hotel from the port, nobody arrived to pick us up. There was also no option to pay by card at the hotel which was slightly frustrating. Apart from that, the staff were very accommodating to help my friend with her injured ankle. The pool and area around the hotel were much nicer than in the pictures and there was vegetarian options for breakfast. We did struggle walking to the hotel from the town as it was very steep, so you will probably need to hire an ATV. We would stay here again.

GREAT LOCATION, FRIENDLY STAFF
This hotel is in a perfect location, a two minute walk to the center of Ios and about a 15 minute walk to the nearest beach. Wonderful swimming pool and bar staff. The concierge team was fantastic, especially Kyriaki who was very knowledgeable and helpful regarding the surrounding area. They gave me a ride back to the ferry station at no charge. The only criticism I have is that the WiFi is very weak but other than that, I would definitely return. I had a fabulous time.

Great experience
Really glad we picked to stay at this hotel. The views are great and is in very close walking distance to the main town. The fact it is NOT near the port was not an issue as they offer free port transfers both there and back. The pool area is great with excellent ‘lounging’ facilities (& views) it also offers a very reasonably Priced pool bar. We opted for breakfast included which we were glad we did as it was quite big selections/portions - 3 pieces of toast, orange juice, tea/coffee, yogurt or fruit, scrambled/hard boiled egg, croissant & selection of spreads! as this is offered until 1pm we thought of it as a brunch and didn’t need anymore food until dinner.

Family run hotel with beautiful views
This is a very local and family run hotel in a beautiful location. It is a good option on a tight budget. We didn’t know that Ios is a party island in June-July, which is our fault! The hotel was full of young people partying and we are a couple with a baby trying to rest. Not a good combination! It also meant we didn’t use the pool. The family who run the hotel were very nice and helped us a lot.they explained that June and July is party time in Ios and then it becomes more family friendly island in August. We really loved being picked up and dropped off at the port, breakfast and the views are amazing! Thanks very much.
