I must point out from the start that we are in Greece for 3 weeks at high season and have chosen hotels based on price to suit our budget. The Galini is, in my opinion in a perfect location. We are a 'middle aged' couple (sadly!) but there were plenty of young people staying there, who were in Ios to...

We were picked up upon arrival. We were given a map of the island and told how to maximise the few hours we had on the island. We followed their instructions and don't regret a single bit. We will definitely return to Ios and Galini Pension.

When first arriving at the hotel, we were greeted by Bernice, the very lovely Irish lady who is in charge. She made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived and...

Elias and Bernice are such wonderful, kind and lovely hosts. They were so accommodating to let us check in early. Bernice gave us lots of tips of where to go and eat, what to do, where the best sunset spot is and which beach is nice to swim, etc. Elias even gave us a ride to Pathos Sunset Lounge! They...

This is a lovely place to stay that's reasonably priced and where the hosts do their upmost to help you. It's a short walk from the beach in Yialos, a stone's throw to the port and easy to get up into the old town. I'd stay here over the madness of the main town and extended my visit precisely because...

Galini Pension is a great budget stay. Although it is close to the port and easy walking distance to the local beaches it is quiet, serene and restful. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Our room was simply furnished with 2 single beds pushed together to form a large double, 2 bedside tables, a small writing desk, a...

We arrived in Giaos on spec to find no accommodation reps on the port, went to the tourist office across the way where a lovely lady rang round to find somewhere to suit us. Five minutes later, the owner of Galini turned up in a minvan to take us to his delightful hotel/pension. Small but very nice room with basic...
