“"Oasis of calmness"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Dear Akis and father:-)
Back in Germany we directly want to thank you for the best smell of herbs coming out when opening our baggage:-)
It was a very relaxing week staying in your hotel. Your recommandations were perfekt. (Restaurants, Car renting...) The birthday surprise was really sweet!
Maybe you should have a look at the online pictures of the rooms. This was honestly for us a little bit disappointing at the beginning. We expected direct sea view and more color (blue-white) in our room.
But this was fastly forgotten because of the wonderful atmosphere in Dream Island!
The beach, Livadia and all the island fascinated us completely!!!
We really recommand your very clean hotel and the charming island Tilos!!!

Thank you for the very good review! Unfortunatelly when you arrived there weren't any direct sea view apartments available, but as you found out yourself our big advantage is the proximity to the beach! Only fifteen seconds from your bed to the water! I believe that when you are on a greek island thats the most important thing!!

A couple of years before i visited the island alone and it was so amazing that i brought my family this july!
Our flat was just pefect for a family! The best view i ever had (and i've travelled a lot). The aegean sea in front of our bedroom!
The distance from the bed to the beach 10 seconds!!
We liked a lot DAKOS in the greek breakfast!

Room Tip: The flat on the front building is simply great! 150 euro per night, is a bargain for what it offers!

Tilos is a small island with only a couple of villages of which Livadia is the main one and also the port. Livadia is on a sheltered very picturesque bay with a long horseshoe beach comprised of pebbles. The beach has a promenade enclosing it and a large number of small hotels and studio buildings plus a range of tavernas, bars and a couple of mini markets. The village square is a great place to have a drink and people watch. Livadia is a living village that happens to also have small scale tourism.
Lets put Dream Island in context, its a very well run, clean and comfortable small complex offering self contained studios and it is not a 5 star hotel (nor does it claim to be) and on that basis I am commenting. First and foremost Dream Island is owned and run by Akis and his charming father. Akis runs a tight ship and wants the best for his clients and is concerned to ensure everyone has what they want. Dream Island is an excellent peaceful position at the far end of the populated part of the bay so it is not hemmed in by other buildings and yet only a short 10 minute walk to the central square. The property is right on the beach so from room to sea could not be closer and there are no roads to be concerned about. Dream Island has its own sun beds and umbrellas on the beach. The sea was beautifully clear and also extremely calm with barely a ripple whilst we were there. Our room was large and adequately furnished with comfortable twin beds. There is a small kitchen area with a fridge and even a cooker (should you wish to prepare simple food). The shower room and toilet were perfectly adequate. Overall a clean well appointed room. Breakfasts were a bit quirky but sufficient. The guests were primarily Scandinavian, with a some Italians and some Brits - in fact a nice mixture. I cannot perceive this as a family place but one for couples as its very calm and quiet and not much to occupy young children. I would absolutely return.

With the family this time! We booked the flat on the front building over the reception.
Spotless as usual, very spacious 6 persons in 2 big rooms!
Greek breakfast was perfect, especially dakos!
During the warm day we enjoyed Greek beer Mythos with only 2 Euro and many of the tidbits that go with!
In the afternoon happy hour with 2 cocktails at the price of one. We really enjoyed tequila sunrise.
We could always stay up to date by using their free netbooks and we always got I.T. help by the owner Akis!

Room Tip: If you have your birthday expect a surprise by the friendly owner!

Just back from a few days at Dream Island and I echo many of the other reviews of this hotel. It is perfectly located at the edge of the beach just minutes from the tavernas and bars. The service is excellent - when I was bitten by an insect Akis was ready with information to help. Breakfast was also plentiful and good quality. Thank you Akis and I look forward to returning.
