This hotel was fabulous, gorgeous and spacious room with a balcony, comfy bed, great wardrobe space, everything you need is there! The hotel is right on Yialos beach however if you'd prefer spending time at a pool it has a lovely one with a great pool bar also! The bus stop is right outside with buses going to the village and to Mylopotas beach every 15 minutes! Would highly recommend this hotel as it has a friendly staff and is well worth the money!

Liostasi is a wonderful place to stay. The main thing that makes it so wonderful is the staff. They are attentive and above all super friendly, you genuinely feel that you have met new friends, not something I can say about many 5* places I have stayed. You are not staying in some corporate style place, where, apart from the view, you could be anywhere in the world.
The location is perfect, walking distance from Chora, the port and Gialos beach; for elsewhere there is good public transport to Mylopotas and it's easy and reasonable to rent a car.
Great rooms, excellent beds. I had a terrace with views across the bay and out towards Sikinos. Other rooms have balconies all have great views.
The facilities are second to none. Breakfast is a gargantuan feast, I can't think of anything that wasn't available, you only have to ask and it's provided.
The pool is large and the whole area around is a great place to relax and sunbathe taking in the wonderful view across the bay and beyond.
Oh and said I mention the staff? They are the heart of what makes Liostasi such a friendly, relaxed and enjoyable place to stay. I'll pay a special mention to Stavros, Pan and Julia, then there's George, Mary and Dora, also I will never forget Victoria and Maria from the spa. I had a lovely conversation with the manager Vicky who was friendly and good company. A big thank you also to all the staff whose names I never knew, they are just as much a part of what makes it fabulous.

The Avra is well located being only a very short level walk from the port and within easy walking distance of a decent sandy beach. Its location just away from the hustle and bustle of harbor ensures a quiet sleep with the benefits of easy access to the tavernas etc. To reach the town with it's mazey charming streets on the hill above you can either walk up the steps - a moderate 15minute climb but one rewarded by great views, or catch the regular bus that runs late into the night. Buses also run to other resorts from the harbor.
Katerina the owner was very friendly and helpful.
Being a mature couple we had reservations with Ios's reputation for liveliness but we found it to be relatively quiet and very much to our liking in mid September.
We will return and would stay in the Avra again

We needed to be on Ios for a few days and Mediterraneo was, fortunately, open for business. We were warmly welcomed and cared for by Sal and his very friendly dog, Nana. Excellent location directly opposite the main town, with a lovely outside area including pool. The hotel caters for the high season party people but is equally charming as a base for exploring the island in the lower seasons. Reasonably priced, clean and functional, lifted by the warmth of the owner, Sal.
We shall doubtless return.
