We stayed here for 5 nights. The hotel hugs one end of the beach, so a very short walk to the beach. The rooms were quite large and modern but a little run down. A nice balcony overlooking Mylopotas beach. We stayed in a superior room located in the top back corner of the hotel. There was a set of stairs that run along the outside of the hotel and hook up to the back - this was good exercise every day. No safe in room, or coffee making facilities. Breakfast was included for our stay, a good variety of food and drinks. The filter coffee was cold every morning we went, but you could order separate coffee from the staff.
We weren't impressed with the service at the pool bar. The bartender was extremely slow in producing our order and it was incorrect. The second visit, again was very slow in getting our first round of drinks and he completely forgot the second order. Cocktails were expensive compared to other bars in Ios. We didn't return after that. The bar was very quiet when we went both times. The pool is nice and deep - extremely salty though.
The Wi-fi was very poor. We could not access it from our room at any time during our stay, even on the balcony as instructed. It worked intermittenly at the pool bar but was unreliable.
Overall, a good stay but there was room for improvement.
