“Amazing accommodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

This hotel is a real palace.Perfect location just few steps from Mylopotas beach. It is well decorated, the rooms are spacious and what a staff!!! Athina and her team (especially Panos and Sofokles) are exceptional and the quality of service is beyond every expectation..Spa treatments are fantastic!The upper pool is the best place to relax but the main one is the absolute must! Ios palace is just highly recommended!!!

We stayed at Ios palace for a 3 night getaway to Ios island.
The hotel is in a Fantastic Location just a step away from Milopota beach the most popular and organized one in Ios whith a large variety of Activities and sunbeds that are always available. The hotel is built on the hill right next to the beach upwards and we where lucky to stay in one of the highest rooms up with amazing views of the entire beach and bay. It was no problem getting up and down to the room as accessing our room level was done by using two elevators (it would be quite a hike if not for the elevators). Our room was room No 100 with a private small pool and huge private terrace area from where you we didnt want to leave.
The room its self was well designed with all those needed details to create a warm and cosy atmosphere but in harmony with the local architecture and very spacious too. The hotel it self is beautiful with stylish details, very spacious facilities and a beautiful pool with pleanty of sunbeds The breakfast had many options and for the staff no extra request was never a problem as they were always with a smile.
Thank you for an amazing stay and we will be back very soon.

I have stayed in this hotel 3 times now and will returning AGAIN in September. It is an excellent hotel with great facilities. The food in the restaurant is absolutely mouth watering. The pools are clean and great fun. The service is excellent and the staff so helpful and polite. Always with a smile ready to serve you. Right on the beach of Mylopotas to enjoy swimming in the sea.
A hotel NOT TO BE MISSED.

Room Tip: If you have walking difficulties, choose a room on the lower floors.

Ios Palace was a nice hotel to be at, very modern and with a lovely view! It was a little overwhelming to climb up the stairs and, as we were the top floor, we got lost a few times, even fell a few times, but that’s ok. The view was worth it! This hotel was one of the few that took into consideration our request of a high floor and king size bed (that I thought was nice and comfy), so that was really nice!
The pools are really nice, the grounds very well kept and the staff is very friendly. We did have a few ant friends and even a millipede visit our room, but we just pushed them back outside.
The breakfast was really good, amazing yogurt as always and very nice outdoor setting.
The walk to the city center was about 10-15 minutes and 3 minutes to the beach.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor with a view if you don't mind the stairs.

We stayed at Ios palace for 4 nights as part of our Island hopping trip. The service received was great throughout with caring and friendly staff in all areas of the hotel, from pick up through to departure and drop off back to the port. The hotel was very clean and rooms were a good size - the only downside being access to the Wi-fi is limited to the lobby, dining and pools. The food at the hotel restaurant (tomatini) and the hotel restaurant in the town centre (agosto) is a very high standard and very reasonably priced (plus a free bottle of wine for your first night!). I'd certainly recommend the daily 4pm-7pm BBQ - phenomenal. The beach is a 30 second walk from reception, and town is a 5min/€5 taxi away - much better to stay on the beach though so worth the extra effort (hotel able to assist with taxis although book half hour in advance). Our ferry wasn't until 4pm but the hotel provided us access to the spa to freshen up and shower free of charge - much welcomed. Overall, i would highly recommend - the hotel is stunning.

we've spent almost a week there and it was almost perfect :) the view was fabulous, breakfasts really tasty, reception warm and helpful,swimming pools could make you feel that you're excepional guest :)
but there is a few bad things like: ants (really small and harmless), bathrooms are rather small and not comfortable and dogs can walk anywhere. i'm not a fan of dogs so it wasn't nice to spend my breakfast time with dogs going around ;/

I can't begin to tell you about the overall excellence of the hotel from the cleanliness..:to the location as well as the staff. We were welcomed from the minute we arrived at night. The front desk was very professional in handling our arrival and our rooms were clean with a spectacular view of the beach and hotel grounds. We decided to go to dinner (delicious) and was thoroughly entertained by Sofo. We then met the restaurant manager Athina who made us as well as everyone else feel as they were the only guest there...she was incredible and so friendly! Dina the hotel manager made us feel so special also treating us as if we were VIPs. Our waitress at breakfast was Stella and we became instant friends...what a doll. The bartender "shake~shake" (bano) was the best...he made our nights so much fun! 5 min bus ride to the village...steps to the beach as well as restaurants and shops...don't know why this isn't a 5 star? A must stay experience...enjoy...Opa!
