I discovered Ios purely by accident last July while island-hopping in the Cyclades. On arriving at the port I got chatting to Nikos (the friendly owner of Hermes hotel), and decided to spend 4 nights there. The room was very clean and comfortable with an ensuite bathroom. The pool was fantastic! A good size, with amazing views over the sea and a lovely pool bar which served yummy cocktails and food all day and most of the night!! Had some great nights sitting at the bar chatting with Ruth - the English lady who runs the bar, and is only too happy to tell you all about Ios and all the best places to go. The hotel is situated about 10 mins walk to the main village of Chora where you can find lots of bars, restaurants and shops, and 7 mins walk to the main beach which is long, sandy and offers a variety of watersports, as well as various restaurants and tavernas all offering tasty food and beer. There is a regular bus service if you don't want to walk. To be honest I spent most of the day lying on my comfy sunbed by the pool at Hermes hotel. All the staff were so friendly and I would recommend this hotel to anyone. When I was there, the other guests were a mixture of families, couples and groups of friends. Various nationalities - English, Scottish, Norwegian, Italian, even some Aussies. I'm hoping to go back to Ios for a week this August, and if I do, I will definately stay at Hermes Hotel again. Thank you for a wonderful holiday Niko, Ruth and all at Hermes!
