“Wonderful stay!!!”
Reviewed 9 August 2012

Visit Ios!!! It´s a wonderful island with lots of nice beaches, a beautiful Chora and NOT just a party island. This is also a perfect gettaway for families. We sayed with our two children at lovely Corali. A short walk from the ferrie boats, right at the beach (which isn´t the best on the island, by the way). Comfortable and clean room and also a breakfast buffet which is a perfect add on. The pool area was so relaxing and it was a good start and finish of the day. Don´t miss the pizzas!!! The pride of the Hotel Restaurant with fresh ingredients baked in a stone owen. If we come to Ios again we will defenately stay at Corali again.

We enjoyed the stay tremendously. Perfect location in immediate proximity of the beach. The nearest section of the beach is indeed tended to by the Corali staff; they would actually serve drinks on the beach as well as in the hotel proper. Rooms are simple but comprehensive; everything you need is there. Friendly, easy-going, competent staff, nice and clean, good kitchen, too, with certain items (eggs, olives, etc.) from farm owned by the proprietors.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Corali Hotel. With sea views to die for from our balcony, gorgeous swimming pool and very clean well-kept rooms and hotel. Sharon and Michael are very friendly, caring and they make you feel relaxed as soon as you arrive. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Such attention to detail throughout the hotel. We can't wait to return! Janet and Barry

The Corali Hotel is an excellent choice. Traveling alone and being a bit nervous. I was treated excellently from the time I stepped foot on the Island, when a hotel family member met me at the Ferry. The owners Sharon and Michael and their 2 daughters do everythiing they can to make you feel welcome and taken care of. Sharon handpicks the room for each visitor to make their stay the best ever, Breakfast at whatever time I chose, good advice for restauraunts and rental car. I felt like a family member. With views of the sea from your room, clean well kept rooms and hotel, beautiful flowers everywhere you look. The pool was sparkling clean and the most affordable place to stay on all the 4 islands I visited. I will be back to stay at the Corali and Ios. If you are considering staying here, Look no further you have the perfect hotel under your cursor! Eva

Room Tip: I was on the 3rd floor facing the sea with a whole outside balcony to myself.

This hotel is a very good choice !
The owners, a couple, and their daughters and staff are more than welcoming.
Meals are very good and very afordable.
Walking distance from the port, it simplifies after the boat ride.
Thanks to Corali Hotel for a memorable trip at IOS.

Hi , We have been one of the many tourists that have stayed in IOS and in the Corali for a substantial amount of times (25 in over 30 years) of which Sharon and Michael have raised the standards each year .

Different to the one report the front of the Hotel was constructed in the late 70s and through the years standards which we all now expect are as normal, the hotel has Air Con Rooms, TV, Fabulous Pool which is never busy even in high season of which next to the pool is a cocktail bar end eating area, there is also a small enclosed children’s pool and play area.

In the 80s the quality of food in the restaurant far excelled the all the restaurants on the Island and with the introduction of the wood oven in the late 90s the Pizzas are the best I have tasted in Europe. The restaurant is not used only by the tourist but by the residents on the Island, IT’s THAT GOOD

To the front of the hotel the Corali has its own parasols on sunbeds on the beach some will take you up to the water’s edge. If you want a drink or snack you don’t even need to move.

The drinks and cocktails from are the real thing and not poor substitutes (which you will find in some bars on the Island) and the bottle beers are the best value for money on the Island.

I can promise you spend a week in the Corali and you will want to return.

IOS also has lots going for it fantastic beaches with the new roads give easy access also you can visit Homers (not Simpson) grave, churches and old monist ruins , In the Village there are alleyways with numerous small shops, restaurants and bars, do the Sunset at least once , but after 11pm life changes and fun disco’s and bars open till the sun comes up.

The sad thing IOS has had a decline in tourists over the years, which I don’t understand why especially as its better value for money (cheaper) in some cases 50% than Paros, Mykonos, Naxos and Santorini.

Give IOS a go

Best Wishes TIM

We stayed at Hotel Corali at the end of September and enjoyed the peace and quiet at the end of the season.
The hotel has two buildings and the rooms in the front building look to have been upgraded whereas the ones at the rear still seem to have the original fittings. We did however find the rooms clean snd contrary to an earlier report the towels and sheets were changed daily - which is unusual for any hotel.
As it was the end of the season the pizza oven was not in operation so we only had breakfast which was adequate.
We found Sharon, her husband and all other staff extremely helpful and friendly.
The hotel benefits from a swimming pool and a bar which is open during the day. The hotel is across the road from Yialos Beach which is extremely clean and gently sloping so ideal for children.
Yialos itself has a number of good tavernas and certainly in September is very quiet.
Excellent bus service to Hora and Milopotas Beach.
All in all excellent vaule for money - we would certainly stay here again.
