I spent two weeks in Iolida Beach hotel and it was one of the greatest time ever :) The room was beautiful with sea view. The hotel has 2 swimming pools, so there is no problem with getting sunbed. Stuff was very nice, helpful and polite.

We spent 6 days at Iolida Beach during August. We had a double apartment with sea view. The apartment was nice, big and clean. But the problems we had were with the service. Upon arrival we were told that there was noone to help us with the luggages and we should carry them ourselves, we explained we have the kid... More

We stayed at the hotel during high season summer 2015. Staying at hotel, it's either a choice on living at the 'Beach' side or the 'Star' side. Go for the stars. The part of the hotel on across the street is the new part of the hotel and very nice. You can of course use both parts of the hotel,... More

Not to mention the beautiful towel designs. I loved their breakfast with so many choices and the well located restaurant . What impressed me also is the honesty... More

We stayed in main building near the beach front and restaurant. Friendly staff and cleaning was good and done daily. Furnitures are old and could do with minor renovation, e.g changing rusty parts and nailing back the wooden planks, etc. Breakfast and dinner at the restaurant had a good variety. The bar mixes drinks well too. My only issue was... More
