“Perfect!”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

This traditional little greek villa is perfect. It is family owned which adds to the heart warming hospitality which all travellers receive upon entering Villa Mata. The hotel is on the beach and very close to the port, and only a 5-10 minute walk from the great night life and town centre. Additionally, the villa is spotlessly clean and welcoming, with all the decorations and gardens. It is definitely worth while staying here.

Room Tip: ask for number 10, it is probably the best room :)

Villa Mata is a MUST if you go to Ios! There's no better place i could recommend for you to stay in Ios, because Mata is simply the best on offer. The main attractivity of Villa Mata is without a doubt the staff; it's a family-run business and the man who is in charge, Lambros, is the nicest, most helpful and fun guy you'll ever meet! The location of the Villa is a close second in what makes it amazing, as it's a 30 second walk for the beach, a 2 minute walk to the port where all the cafés and restaurants are, and less than a 10 minute walk from the town centre where all the nightlife goes on! Definitely recommend this place especially if you are going with a group of friends looking for a great holiday!

Wonderful place: we were a group of 60 people and we were welcomed joyfully and looked after in every occasion. It's in a comfortable position right close to the beach and 15 minutes walk from IOS. There are very nice relaxing areas with a common kitchen and tables always available. The most important thing was the great hospitality from Lambros and his family. They were there to give information and help in every situation. We lived 10 days like if they were a second family!! I greatly advise to go there if you want a fun, relaxing and crazy holiday in IOS.

Enjoyed my stay here.
The place is family owned and the owner is very helpful, welcoming and friendly.
The place is close to everywhere. All food and shops near the port is a 3 minute walk, the main town is a pleasant 10 minutes walk.
Good value

Since i booked i received a very friendly email confirming my booking and also offering to pick me up for free from the port, something ABSOLUTELY new for me, since i never receive such a welcoming confirming emails, that make you actually feel like visiting friends instead of cold hotels. But this is indeed what made my time in Ios specially nice, since the hotel staff was always friendly and looking after any detail that i may need. I recommend this hotel not just for the good location, clean and cool rooms (with air-con) but on the top of everything for the lovely staff, great people!!

price good but again this island is cheap, so its a good choise for the backpackers.
wifi fast and parking in front of the hotel.

Villa Mata was by far the best place we stayed on our vacation, and made Ios the most memorable time of our trip to Greece. The hotel itself has so much character and is absolutely beautiful and extremely clean. The location was perfect- steps away from a quiet beach, the port and restaurants, and also easily accessible to the bars and Mylopotas beach. On top of that, the outdoor barbecue and kitchen facilities allowed us to have a great time making dinners together at the hotel, and was a great atmosphere for meeting other guests. Lambros made us feel so much at home at Villa Mata- after only 3 days we felt like we had been there for weeks. He was extremely helpful and he helped us have an amazing time by taking us out, showing us around and hanging out with us around the hotel. Best place to stay in Ios- I wish I didn't have to leave!
