“Perfect!”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

Could not be more happy with this hotel.

The location is perfect - across the road from the village and all the clubs and bus stop right out front which takes you straight to the beach and the beach clubs.

Has a great bar with great food and drinks, served by the best bar tender in town.

Owners Salvatore and Stefania could not be more hospitable and certainly made or trip what it was.

I recommend Hotel Mediterraneo to all.

What a pleasure it was staying at Mediterraneo! A stones throw away from the bustling village, many restaurants, cafes and island nightlife, the hotel is perfectly positioned at such a very decent price. There are many scooters/ quad bikes available nearby to explore the island and a bus stop out the front where a number of buses go to the beach destinations (with the closest beach 2 mins away) The owners Stef and Sal are simply amazing, catering to our every need during the 3 day stay. Sal is without a doubt the best barman on the island, whipping up cocktails and shots that will rival any you have had! He is also very willing to provide you with the best advice on where to visit and what to see while on the island. If you are in need of a hearty homemade meal you will not need to leave the hotel as Stef will create a wonderful mediterranian dish that will not dissapoint. The hotel also provides you with transfers to and from the port which is helpful. The rooms were cosy and clean and we had a nice little balcony to relax on after a long day/night out. Finally, it would be unfair not to mention Nana the mascot of the place, a very friendly labrabor. Her prescence is the perfect touch on this friendly, relaxing hotel and I will definitely return when I next visit the island! Thank you Stef and Sal and see you soon !

We visited this hotel at the end of June and the start of July. Although it was very quiet (the whole island was), we cannot say enough good things about this hotel. The owners, Sal and Steph, look after a real gem of a place that benefits from an absurdly good location in Chora. Supermarkets, quad rentals, cash points, bars and restaurants are just along the road, the main village is a two minute walk, and the bus stop for buses to the port, the beaches and day trips is quite literally outside the back gate. And for all this, you won't be disturbed by drunken backpackers at 4am. You will not find a hotel on the island more conveniently placed.

But it's not just about the location. Sal and Step, the Italian owners, are genuinely lovely people, and it is they, along with their loveable labrador Nana, who give this place a very friendly, family-run guesthouse feel. As Nana patrols the pool area looking for legs plastered in sunscreen to lick (she loves the taste, apparently!), Sal is the typical charmer behind the bar: we tried a few cocktail bars across the island, but never found anyone who could knock up a drink as well as he can. Particularly worth trying are his 'Jaegeritos' – superb.

The hotel didn't seem to be running the regular BBQ nights while we were there, we assume because it was so quiet, but Sal invited us down to try out a one-off BBQ on the Saturday night. When Steph walked out to our table with two plates piled high with brilliantly cooked meat, I could have cried with happiness. The food was outstanding. Steph also drove us to and from the port when we arrived and departed, giving us a warm welcome and a nice farewell when we finally, reluctantly, had to leave.

We also benefited from an impromptu yoga session from the visiting yoga expert David Disernia – an event that attracted a few other guests as well as Molly, manager of the Lord Byron restaurant (an absolute must-visit place in the village). I guess this was a one off, but is indicative of the charm of the place. You wouldn't get that in many other places.

The rooms are simple, clean, and all have balconies overlooking the bar/pool area – an area that was unfortunately mostly deserted while we were there as bookings across the island were down significantly on previous years, presumably due to political uncertainty over Greece. But we didn't encounter a single problem while on Ios – it's very much open for business, and I can't stress enough to anyone reading this that there is no reason not to visit the island.

The only thing I can think that would have improved our stay? Perhaps Italy beating Spain in the football so we could have celebrated with Sal. Otherwise, an impeccable few days stay – absolutely brilliant. We'll be back next year!

I have been staying at Mediterraneo for the past few summers & it truly feels like home. The owners Stefy & Sal will treat you like family & cater to your every need. The location is also superb - literally a 2 minute walk to all the fantastic nightlife the village Chora has to offer, yet the hotel is set back enough that you never hear any noise at night when trying to sleep. I will return !!!!! Grazie per tutto Sal e Stefy !!!!!

This is the #1 hotel at Ios! Stepy and Sal make you feel like family the moment you arrive. Sal makes an EXCELLENT prosecco mojito! - And the BBQ is mouth-watering! The pool is gorgeous and if you want to hit the beach, the bus is right at your footstep. Walking distance to town and all the night life, but still distant enough to not hear the noise at night. There's an ATM around the corner, and housekeeping is GREAT. The rooms are kept clean with a/c.... I really cannot say anything bad about my stay here. Will definitely be coming back!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 2... excellent view of the pool but really any room is GREAT.

I certainly recommend staying at this hotel. We stayed here for three nights and had a great experience. The hotel is located very close to the nightlife but with enough distance to feel like you can escape it to recover. The pool was great and pool bar even better. We ended up spending more at the bar than we spent on the rooms. The bar is very cheap also!!

The owners are incredibly nice people and Sal certainly knows how to entertain from behind the bar. Nana the dog is also very friendly.

One small criticism was that the rooms were a little small. Having said that they were very clean and room service was available but we slept in the room during the day.

Certainly stay at this hotel if you want a good experience in ios

If you are coming to Ios, the Mediterraneo is the place to stay. The owners picked us up from Port and made us feel like family the moment we arrived. Sal makes a fantastic cocktail and don't miss out on the BBQ they offer on Tues/Fridays. It's a stone toss away from the nightlife, scooter rentals, restaurants and markets. If you wish to hit the beaches, just walk 2 steps and hop on the bus. There is no question that I would stay at Hotel Mediterraneo next time I visit Ios, and I will encourage all of my friends/family to do the same.
