This hotel was beautiful! It is located half way between the town of Hora and Mylopotas Beach. A perfect spot to walk down to the beach or walk to the town. Or if walking isn't your thing the bus service stops right in front of the hotel on the main road.
One of the owners, Nick is great, and really made our stay fun. Our room was a double room and was clean and very comfortable. The room's balcony looked out over the cliff to the ocean. A wonderful view of the sun rise from the balcony and from the pool is a spectacular view of sunset! There is internet access at the hotel and there is a restaurant too. The room does have a fridge so I would recommend going to a market to get easy food to eat instead.
Mylopotas Beach is beautiful! The Far Out Camping has free loungers and umbrellas for your use, and has wait staff coming around to bring you drinks too. Lots of people on the beach so be ready for that attmosphere. Plus the night life here is crazy! I had a ton of fun at The Flames Bar! But if you at all clusterphobic, these bars are not for you, they are tiny and get absoluteley packed! When I was trying to leaves at 2am I could hardly get the door open it was so full. But non the less up until then it was a blast and the music was great to dance to! Try their flame drink, only 4euro for a drink made up of 4 shots which were lit on fire and then after you drink it thru a straw, you get a beer.
Ios is a great island but it really didn't feel like Greece, honestly it felt like Austarlia, there were so many woking there. So we only stayed there 2 days and partied the one night. Worth the stop, to the island , but a short stop. That is unless you are wanting a constant party every day and night!
