I first had the pleasure of staying at the Golden Sun in 1989 a few months after it opened, and until last year, when due to childrens schooling I was unable to make it, I had been to Ios every year since. And for each of those 20 years I have stayed at the Golden Sun.
Over the years I have come to feel part of the family, and I have travelled back first with friends, then wife and now with my two young children so have grown very fond of everyone involved with Golden Sun.
But the thing that I have never found anywhere else in the world, is the love and care that they show to their guests whether you are staying for one night or returning many times like myself or countless other guests.
I have seen countless acts of kindness over the years, that do not get shown in pictures but are actually more important than having the biggest rooms or the largest flat screen TVs.
That said as other reviews say, the cleaning is impeccable, the swimming pool divine and I will never ever bore of the beautiful view over the port and the surrounding hills.
You can also get these things elsewhere, but you will never find a warmth of welcome like you do at Golden Sun, so go on go see my friends at Golden Sun, I promise you will be back.
