“PERFECTION!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

I'm writing this review whilst sitting in my beach front hotel in Mykonos wishing I was back in Liostasi Hotel for my remaining nights in Greece!

This exceptional hotel has no bad points what so ever. From the stunning views to the impeccably helpful staff, it seems nothing was spared by the owners in delivering a 10/10 hotel/spa.

Firstly the location is amazing, we were lucky enough to have a room over looking the pool/balcony area and it was truly great to wake up every morning and see the breath-taking view right from our balcony. The room itself had everything we needed and we had no issues with anything.
The hotel is set out very well and decorated meticulously well with hundreds of candles lit at night to create a fantastic atmosphere to sit and watch the sunset sipping a cocktail.
All the services you require whilst staying in Ios can be organised very easily by the hotel staff. From picking up a hire car to organising taxis and spa treatments the staff were always ready to give all their attention to helping you with what ever you need.
The restaurant is TOP quality, every meal we ate whether it was breakfast lunch or dinner was fantastic every time round and we really did not find better food on the island than right there at our own hotel!
Last but certainly not least were the two incredible bartenders who were on hand day and night to help with anything from pool towels to Mojitos & Margaritas . Theo and Panagiota became more like good friends to us throughout our entire stay. They were both incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about their jobs and really took a personal interest in making sure we got exactly what we wanted out of our stay in Ios. It was really great to be able to have some good conversations with not only them but all of the staff later on in the nights, it added a personal touch to our entire stay!

In short if you are travelling to Ios, Liostasi Hotel/Spa should be #1 on your places to stay

A quick call by the local travel agent and within ten minutes we were at the Liostasi Ios Hotel. Check in was quick and efficient, but being made to stand and admire the view, although outstanding, was unnecessary as we needed to freshen up after our journey.
The room was blindingly white, immaculately clean and furnished in a minimalist style. The balcony contained a small table and two chairs. The bathroom was incredibly small – maybe 1.25m wide by 2m long. Despite this the shower was fantastic, and a good selection of toiletries was supplied – a shower cap would have been much appreciated though! The sink did not hold water but once reported was fixed immediately. All linen and towels were of high quality.
Breakfast was satisfactory and included cereals, fruits and yoghurts, cold cuts of meat and cheese plus eggs, bacon and sausages. It was lovely to eat outdoors in beautiful surroundings.
The pool area is well maintained and very attractive. We would have liked to have spent more time relaxing here.
Two areas let the Liostasi down. Firstly, the old fashioned safe is way too small and a big key, obtained from Reception is required to operate it. Ironically, a book entitled “Small Luxury Hotels of the World” sits on top of the safe! This safe is far from luxury standard!
Secondly, after checking in many guests pass by an administration room. Located next to the gym, the smell of cigarette smoke wafting out from this room is at times overpowering! I realise that Greece has a culture of smoking, but keep it away from your guests!
Overall, we would certainly consider staying at the Liostasi Ios Hotel again, and would recommend it to other travellers.

HINT – If you have a car Taverna Alonistra at Psathi is well worth a visit for well cooked meals, lovely views and friendly service. Try the mezes at “The Nest” in the village and “Enigma” in the port. Free wi-fi is also available in the port. We found the laundrette located at the top of the donkey stairs to be very efficient - and included delivery back to your hotel room.

Room Tip: The view from Room 14 was spectacular - worth climbing the 3 sets of stairs to get there!

We have just returned from an Island hopping holiday and we spent 4 nights here following a recommendation. it was a super deal that included 2 spa treatments and 1 days car hire!
But back to the HOTEL> Many plus points,
As you set foot in the hotel you are greeted with a fantastic pool area with a wonderful vista of the port and sea, you really feel like you really on the edge of heaven!. The staff are so welcoming and helpful. A special mention to Yannis who is the most knowledgable, personable and unobtrusive waiter we have ever met, a super guy. There was a sweet girl who served us coffee every morning,always smiling and happy to help. The spa treatment was AMAZING!!! The food is of a VERY HIGH standard, always freshly cooked..well done to the chefs!
From our room(13) we had a superb view of the harbour, port and neighbouring Island, plus the most wonderful sunsets every night. (Who needs santorini when you can view from here)
There has been some great thought given to the hotels decor,particularly when lit up at night as it looks stunning.
If there had to be any negatives then the rooms are a little on the small side and beds quite low to the floor, with no space for drawers, but hey when you can have a bathroom that makes up for it with a PROPER shower, no hand held shower here then thats a bonus.The rooms are kept really clean too.
In terms of location, tranquility and value for money then this Hotel hits all the right buttons! Well done to all staff and thank you for making us so welcome. We cant wait to get back!!!

Room Tip: Room 13 has great view

That was a stay we will not forget
All the staff was fantastic,helpful,about everything.
Don't forget also to explore the Spa treatment from Victoria's magic hands!the location is amazing
You can also enjoy the sunset enjoying your coctail...
Liostasi is THE MAIN REASON to visit this island
you can rent a car with a very logical amount per day and see the rest of the island
But returning to this heaven is the most calmful thing to do
We really rested here
The food was just delicious,chef ia one of the hints of the place.
You can sit and eat all day long...

We spent 6 nights here first week of September. The hotel is lovely, the staff extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed in the senior suite which has a lovely terrace. It might not be as large as one may expect but it we enjoyed just the same. The price, quality ratio is extremely good. Most of the clubs close end of August so the island was quiet around this time of year. We spent days all alone on some of the more secluded beaches. The restaurant also has excellent food and great greek wines. I would recommend renting a car to travel around the island.

Room Tip: I would recommend either one of the junior or senior suites. Prices are very reasonable.

Stayed here at the end of a fortnight travelling around Greece - glad we saved it till last. If we had gone to Liostasi first we might not have wanted to leave!

From the moment you arrive, you get the impression that nothing is too much for the staff. They were all friendly and attentive. the ladies at the pool were lovely and the reception staff very helpful.

We were given a stunning room with amazing views over the pool and the sea - so nice to wake up to an amazing view!!

Clearly a lot of money has been spent on the hotel, and it shows. The attention to detail is perfect and there are so many interesting things to look at, books to read etc The pool area is fantastic and an incredible place to sit with a cocktail and watch the sun go down!!

Great location overlooking the bay and only a 5 minute walk into the main square.

All in all, a dream location. Already tryingt o work out thwn we can return!!

Room Tip: Definitely worth getting a sea view room!
