Reviewed 2 July 2014

I stayed here at short notice, recommendation from a friend and it was a wonderful surprise. Tucked away just behind the beach on the port, very simple and pretty place with Bougainvillea all over, very clean rooms, extremely friendly owners (Lambros will do his best to make your stay as enjoyable as possible), and 2 minutes walk away from a lovely port beach. maximum 5 minutes walk from beach cafe/bar, small super market, ticket office by the landing bay, scooter rental, and little shops selling local stuff. All very quiet, friendly and peaceful, you would not know its a port at all. I have traveled a lot all over, and enjoy simple beach hotels with no fuss. This is one of the best I have stayed at.

Lambros is the best host possible. You leave feeling like an old friend rather than a guest. The rooms are nice and very clean. We even had our own kitchen. When I go back to Ios this is the place I will stay at.

When I stayed in Villa Mata earlier this month, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the place. For 15euros a night I had my own double bed, the room was cleaned every day, and I of course was gifted with the advice and good humour of Lambros; a thoroughly solid and well natured chap. The building itself is beautiful, with a leafy, shady front yard filled with the music of songbirds which hang in cages. All is very clean and well kept. The only downside is that it is a bit of a distance from the main town, where the bars and clubs are located. Even so there is a regular bus up the hill to the town, or if you like a fairly easy path, so criticising the location is very much nitpicking. In all, Villa Mata is bloody brilliant.

I stayed at Villa Mata last summer and am going back again this year, the location is perfect!
Right next to the sea and a short walk from both the port and the main town, on arrival the owner came to pick us up and show us about, recommending some of the better places to eat and enjoy the night life.
The room was just the right size and had a balcony with a wonderful breeze and on arriving we were able to make ourselves right at home.
Overall great stay, looking forwards to going back!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have great balconies.
