The family who run the otel were warm and welcoming. The pool was wonderful to beat the heat of Greece. Easy bus ride into main town or a quick walk. Beautiful view of the sea.
he staff was great, although no music could be played after arpund 10pm..family oriented hotel. If you wnat something more relaxed lok closer to the port. the pool closed at 8pm which was expected but did not allow for any time in teh pool at sun-down/sun-set. food selection could be better.
The attitude and assistance of the staff. The relaxing atmosphere and absence of noise.
The hotel is managed by a very friendly family. They look after all the time. Very well located: 10 minutes walking to the port and 15 minutes to Chora. They also offer you free shuttle to the port. Excellent service and fantastic swimming pool. The bar offers fantastic cocktails for a good price. The rooms are quite good. Nothing.
the friendliness of staff and their willingness to help- give advice about the island/ having a balcony and swimming pool with great views/ good public transport to main locations around the island (main town walkable if not too hot)
The pool was gorgeous. We were booked for two nights and our ferry to the island got canceled because of high winds. I called the hotel to move our stay back a night because it was impossible to get to the island and was told I would incur a whole nights extra charge because I hadn't canceled in the stated time period. I reiterated that I would still be staying there the number of nights I had booked but couldn't get there because of canceled ferries and they did not care. I got them to negotiate it down from charging me a whole extra night, but it was out of my control and they were unreasonable. I was very upset and disappointed.
Great location, great view, great price, great staff, brilliant stay. Will definitely be coming back next year!
People there are very friendly Nothing
The staff were very friendly, the room was great, and the view from the pool was very pretty.
Our second stay here and not our last! As before clean, quiet, loverly pool, loverly owners.
The location was perfect. Situated between the beach and the village.
The receptionists were great...especially vasoula !!
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.
Helpfullness of the staff.
Good location with an excellent view of Mylopotas beach. Relatively accessible to town centre, by bus/bike/foot. Organised transfers by the hotel/village staff which was very convenient. Just look for the far out signs held up and they will take you straight to either the hotel or campsite, wherever ur staying. There are good Far Out facilities by Mylopotas Beach (pool, restaurant,bar), this is open for everyone. Breakfast was a little simple. Reception staff can be moody, depending on the shift. (THumbs up to the guy at reception on the night graveyard shift though.)
Excellent view, nice staff, fantastic pool and bar, tidy and smart rooms, definitely worth staying. on the check-out i was informed about 30 EURO worth phone call from my room, which of course i did not make (i travel with company cell, why would i use hotel phones). i recommend to disable phone services on arrival, probably room service is using them. on the positive side: hotel staff let it go without me paying.
very quiet place with nice people not far away from the beach and the port!! the shower not very praticable!
nice place with a good location and staff very helpful and polite.
Very nice appartmentl with very clean room and friendly staff. It is located just outside the port with an short walk to the beach. Excellent.
Great hotel. Super friendly staff. Loved the vines over the walkway to keep you cool in the day. These are the places are enjoying staying in. Been in the family for years and they truly make you feel welcome. Thanks for making our holiday. Matt and Carol.
I stayed at the Galini Pension for 3 nights and I liked the fact that it was very quiet and close to the beach. I believe that the room was overpriced without breakfast included in that price.
Galini was a fantastic hotel the staff were better than 1st rate being family run you felt very much like part of the family though not smothered. The rooms were cleaned and sheets and bedding provided daily. the location though quiet was only 3 minutes walk from the port which is vibrant and full of locals eating and drinking in all an outstanding experience
Beach down the street, Hora (nightlife) 20-minute walk.Need to rent a car to see the island,. Very quiet.
calm, nice garden
People at hotel is very friendly, the hotel is near the beach and hotel and rooms are very clean!
Our experience in this hotel was fabulous, since we arrived we were treated excellent and painstaking, the hotel is exquisite theater scenery and set in detail, the attention of all staff and treatment and the warmth of their owners make this hotel the best where we have been all over Greece. The rooms are large and super comfortable (I recommend the suite with private pool is great !!!), impressive breakfast with a great selection of products made Margarita area, own the hotel, which is a charming person, as well as their daughters, popi and Marco, her husband. Certainly recommend to anyone who wants to spend unforgettable days on the island of Ios, visit this hotel and delivered to the magic of the landscape. Come back soon! Nothing
Stunning views, feeling of privacy, large comfortable and clean rooms, great breakfast, very friendly and efficient staff - all in all a wonderful experience! Balcony (room 24) and terrace chairs in need of replacement
It was the best I have ever stayed. Everything was perfect; the staff, the breakfast, the beach...Friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff
Loved this place was awesome view and individual pool with room was fantastic. Was the nicest place we stayed in all of Greece. Location was excellent.. Nothing at all.
Located on the way to the beach(just 2 minutes) with a short walking distance to the town this resort offer nice rooms with terraces (ours was with private swimming pool) and a wondefull sea view. Everything was great ! we felt like home but surrounded by a very kind, helpfull, attentioned and smiling staff.
Fantastic views over mulopotas beach in a quiet and relaxing surrounding. Great service and outstanding breakfast in Greek style. Every detail is cared for. 10 points.
I normally do not bother with writing reviews, however my finace and I really enjoyed staying at Leventes and felt as though we should write something up. The staff was wonderful in all aspects! Costas who worked the bar was fantastic, very helpful and in the know of what to do and where to go (we both enjoyed speaking with him) The location is great, just up the hill from the beach and a 10 minute walk to town. Breakfast although simple, they had enough variety for all (Yogurt and Honey is my personal favourite when in Greece). Everything was fantastic, we really enjoyed our stay and definitely hope to return in the near future.
good location, lovely pool area, good breakfast and not too many rooms so quite peaceful
Everything. Most beautiful location, views (All rooms have sea view). Walking distance to the beach. Staff very friendly and helpful in many ways. The best of the nine hotels we booked and stayed during our trip in Greece & Turkey. True value for money.
Everything was in perfect order, hotel stuff satisfied all requests I had. Location is a very strong point: it take five minutes to walk into Ios action, but the hotel offers quiet (not easy to find in Ios - Chora!)
The owners of the hotel were fantastic. Loved the location and the atmosphere. It was super clean and the best hotel of our trip. The food at the restaurant was delicious and very affordable. We had a beautiful sunset view from our large room terrace.
The proximity to the hora was great and the staff were extremely friendly. The hotel also offered a great pool for the lazy traveller
The staff were fantastic, as were their recommendations on tours and restaurants in the local area. The hotel is situated a short walk from town and is definitely one of the better looking hotels in the area. I would definitely stay in this hotel again! The bed was a little harder than used to.
Lovely hotel, great views of the town. Around a 10min walk into town down hill. Nice quiet area away from all the noise if the town. Hotel owners very friendly and helpful. No breakfast available. Walk back from town is all uphill.
The relaxed feeling around the awesome pool combined with the very friendly and welcoming staff. Room looked over the pool and was very nice and modern.
Everything from the room to the staff, Thanks megahle!! Nothing at all
Super-friendly manager/staff! A nice room with a balcony overlooking the pool area and the Ios Village.
Fantastic place, great view, service and rooms. A must stay hotel in Ios!
Loved our stay at Katerina, the family are so helpful and approachable. They brought us to and from the port. Really clean rooms and gorgeous balcony with full view of Mylopathas Beach or pool if you don't fancy the walk, however the Hotel has great location; equidistant from both beach and town.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Service, quality, and value for money of food and beveages offered at the poolside bar was excellent. Although there were many restaurants a short cab ride away from the hotel there weren't too many within a short walking distance.
Magnificent view from the room balcony. We had to take morning tea from the reception downstairs by ourself to our room and drink cold tea by the time we get to our room. No room service! It is 15 minutes walk to beach and 15 minutes walk to the town centre.
We soaked up the sun, ate and slept extremely well. We went to both the beach and the pool as the hotel was a such a pleasure to be at. The view was amazing and the hotel immaculate. We had absolutely no complaints whatsoever. none!
We felt we were guests of the family. Beautiful views from the pool and rooms. a/c worked. Shower was small but had good water pressure. They even met us and gave us a ride from the ferry to the hotel. The beds were rock hard. My back still hurts.
The view, the staff and the cleanliness!
Beautiful view. Pieceful. Appreciated both by adults and teenagers. We will come back.
Everithing there was perfect.
The room and pool facilities appeared to have been recently remodeled and were beautiful with a great view of the beach. The husband and wife owners were very attentive and picked us up at the port.
Everything was perfect. Great staff. Great atmosphere. Close to everything.
George was fantastic from the minute we arrived we felt welcome. The owner of the hotel George picked us up fro mthe port himselt gave us 12 free beers and meat from easter sunday the day before... all throughout the week we were made to feel very welcome by everyone at the hotel and infact on the whole Island! i'll deffinatly be going back! Amazing!
The location of the hotel is very very good, close to bustops and town square but not too close to be too loud. We were picked up from the port, as they were still trying to sell rooms there at reduced rates. Airconditioning was good The towels are very old and the size of hand towels. The bathroom floor was flooded when we arrived. There was an unexplained loud jackhammer sound from the roof every 6 minutes for the whole first night, it was obviuosly the hot water system because for the remaining 3 nights we had none. It is a party island and yet music and drinking on the balcony were not allowed after 10pm even though the music from the bars and clubs were louder than anything we had, we were threatened with fines of €60 for breaches of this. Locks on doors were very poor, cracked glass in doors.
The Staff made me feel like at home. The location was great, and the price very, very nice. You have to try. Nothing
The staff !!! The people who works at Liostasi are absolutely amazing ! from the reception to the bars you will meet a warm, service minded and fun crew. The hotel is very good indeed but the staff is what makes it incredible :) Special thanks to Karima, Lida, Nico and Rossela - we already miss you guys !! the bathroom is really not nice. It is extremely small and the shower place floods the bedroom. Staying in a hotel on this level, we should not need to wipe the room's floor after taking a shower.
Hotel high quality but not totally luxirious. a jacuzzi free to use but not very clean. The room was really nice. Spa/ Massage available upon request => not very cheap. The swimming pool was great, loved it but the water wasn't heated ! The view was wonderful. Perfect place for lovers or a group of friends. The staff was nice too. Free pick up at the port if requested. Free breakfast really good and various. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from downtown => you have to take stairs to go up to reach the center (that can be fastidious). For a "luxurious" hotel, the towels were not very soft (looked like used a couple of times ) and did not gave us shampoo/ soap samples for the second day. If you don't close all the doors and windows - the air conditionning won't work=> it is an automatic system (this comment may sound weird, but once you will be in the room you will get it ;-) !). We did not have much to spend, so we felt a bit apart from the others who were taken drinks and food at the hotel bar while they were near the swimming pool.
Excellent staff, stunning setting and views, fantastic food, great outdoor/communal areas decor. Beautiful room terrace. For a spa hotel, children should not be allowed. They routinely destroyed the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere (One child plus respective parents yelling at any given time ruin the atmosphere). Also, the size and decor of the rooms was not at the same level as the outdoor/restaurant/pool areas, but was in a different style and lower quality, with relatively small rooms and tiny bathroom.
Everything, the friendly staff, the excellent service, cleaniliness of rooms, breakfast etc. From the moment we got our complimentary welcome drink untill we were dropped at the port we were treated like royals! Absolutely nothing!
Port transfer, location, breakfast, pleasant staff
Beautiful pool over ocean. Clean and modern rooms. Restaurant menu is promising, but food is not as good as expected.
we've stayed just for 2 nights but they were absolutely amazing! the staff, the location and the swimming pool are great!
They charged the jacuzzi. And the bathroom floor was always wet due to the fact that water came out of the shower
Really good hotel, staff is really friendly, nice room, very good price, everything perfect
The hotel is very very close to the centre of Chora, where are all the clubs. Also there are a supermarket and an ATM under the hotel. We stayed for 4 nights in the apartment, and all was good (the room was cleaning, big and kitchen furnished). The staff is so kind. The value for money is very good.
Being able to get a cup of tea and sit on the balcony to drink it. Close to the bus stop and town centre. Having clean towels each day. Shower curtains too short so water went everywhere. Shower needed a bracket to be useful as a shower. Windows needed securing so they didn't slam shut in the wind.
location sewerage smell in bathroom
It's a great hotel for groups of friends, good position next to the center of Ios (Chora), next to the bus stop for the beach mylopotas and near to a minimarket. Good also the service shuttle from and for the port.
the location, the staff the bathroom
It was very close to the Chora of Ios! The room was old, it did not worth the price.
Ideal location, friendly staff our room did not have a nice view but we didnt care that much
It was very in a very good location, at the center of the main town.The staff picked us as from the port and took us back to the port when returning It didn´t have a swimming pool, the shower was a litle small
The hotel staff was very kind lack of lamps nears the beds.
The Afroditi hotel is a very nice place. Entering this hotel is like at your best friend home. The family managing the hotel really cares about the customer. They arrange also the shuttle service from and for the harbour without any problem. Even they called me the day before my arrival for picking me up at the harbour in time! As you can well understand my girlfriend and I enjoyed our three nights in Afroditi Hotel of Ios. Raccomended. N/A
The reputation of ios is a party island and indeed that of the Hotel which in April was the only source of loud music on the island. We detest loud music but all was fine - we first visited ios in the sixties with no cars only donkies no electric only oil lamps Important to note we stayed in early May before the season begins. Natasha Karava was running the Hotel -what a fantastic asset to this hotel. Seperate large village type accommadation all very good .Despite development ios remains a beatiful island . Collection by hotel bus from port was a real plus Dont like canned continual dico music . But staying in May with empty beaches this was no problem -would hate to visit island in July August
Next to the beach. The behaviour of the staff.
The Locations in front of the sea, the Pool Bar and the quiet apartments. Improve breakfast
NIce location and a good restaurant
Close to the beach; Lots of water sport options; Rooms are private; Good pool and bar area No
Excellent food, Beds like all in Greece are singles and very hard
During the day relax by the pool or beach at night party with the other guests
It was close to everything That we found out on the morning of leaving that we had to pay cash for the hotel after booking online with my credit card details.
This is a family run business that truly exemplifies the spirit of kindness that defines Ios. They welcomed us openly even though we made our reservation totally last minute, they treated us like family, including giving us rides when needed, and even gave us a parting gift. Truly wonderful experience.
The staff was nice, the location was convenient. There's not really wifi in all the rooms. Only those close to the reception desk, maybe half.
Almost nothing Noisy environment
Great location between the city and beach with a beatiuful sea view. It is the most kind and helpfull staff in all of Greece and we really recomend this place to anyone!!
The location and the price.
location was great equal walking distance from town and beach. didn't need to catch a bus once.
Our stay at Pelagos Studios lasted for 4 days and we really enjoyed a lot! To begin with the owners are amiable, helpful and we appreciated a lot the fact that they are an adorable family, something that represents the domestic style of the residence. Furthermore, the rooms keep their traditional style of the Aegean Sea and will help you enjoy your stay,since they are fully equipped,clean and perfectly maintained. However what makes the difference is the magnificent veranda which gives a unique view over the sea and you can enjoy a cold drink admiring the infinite blue. Finally the studios are within walking distance from the 'Chora'(the center of the island) and the very beautiful beach of Mylopotas!! We strongly recommend going there!
The room was really nice and spacious, it was very well equipped and had a great terrace with awesome sea views. Also, the pool was great, and the staff was extremely helpful and nice.
My stay was fantastic...affordable and for what you get for the money is great! They picked me up from the dock...George and Rita were so welcoming and whenever you needed something or directions etc they were more than happy to help. The rooms were clean and so comfortable and private. The pool and view is also an extra on top of te rest...I highly reccomend
Rita's Place Hotel was such a great place. It has a boutique hotel feel with great service. The hotel is run by a couple that is so nice and helpful. I really felt at home. The hotel really is a great value too. I can't wait to go back. Nothing!
Pool area was nice Very bare, not even water was provided for drinking. Everything was an extra charge.
Hospitality, very nice location, nice swimming pool, nice room, wifi, nice view, air conditioning in the room. Breakfast not included, little bathroom.
The hotel is close to the port and main city (Chora) The room is very basic & poorly decorated. The beds were extremely hard. The hotel is next to the main road & there is a lot of noise for traffic. Parts of the hotel are still unfinished/under construction. The hotel manager claimed (unconvincingly) to have a problem with the credit card equipment in order to be paid in cash. Finally the machine was miraculously fixed.
I really like the service, the staff was amazing. The pool side was very welcoming and the pool was great size and depth. I really enjoyed my stay at the rita's place.
Loved the hotels restaurant food, and spa. Did not like the sewer smell in the room each evening, very hard beds, very cheap phones w/ no phone directory.Internet only works in the bottom half of the facility.
the staff ,the location , the relaxing atmosphere,the decoration of the rooms
I liked very much the new hotel restaurant and the stuff services.
excellent hotel, very friendly stuff, delicius food and a gorgeous Spa center
1St of all the staff was great cheerful and helpful... from the manager to the maid... The spa was soooooooo great cant wait to go back again... the location of the hotel is unique cause it is on the hill net to the beach tough.. The room was so simple and elegant for our vacation... the best think was the view None... cant wait for next year to visit them earlier...
pool Rooms are very small, not a good value for money. Breakfast average with many wasps...
The location was good, the staff was friendly and the hotel was very nice the airconditioner in my room did not work and the satellite tv was not as advertised, only foxlife was the only chanel they had.
very friendly staff
This family run hotel is friendly, helpful, and located in a prime position. The staff are obliging and always ready to be offering assistance when asked.
There was free hotel pick-up and drop-off to the port. The room was nice with a huge balcony. The owners were so friendly and there was free internet.
The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. Exceeded expectations on making sure we were comfortable. The rooms could have been cleaned better and the showers need to be revamped.
Staff were hospitable and helpful, rooms were clean, location -decent. There was no shower curtain in the bathroom, so when one has a shower there would be water everywhere.
The location as it was close to the port and the village while being away from the crowds. There was free internet for guests. My passport was withheld until I had paid the bill, air-conditioning costs an extra eur 5, the sound on the tv did not work, the toilet continued to run until the toilet tank float ball was manually lifted, and there was no bedding other than the 2 sheets per bed.
web is presenting better picture than it is real condition.
