We stayed at Yialos Beach Hotel in July.
We had originally made plans to stay with Lambros from Villa Mata. Lambros had pre warned us he had 20 young Italian Backpackers staying at Villa Mata but said we can work it out when we get there.
So Lambros picked us up at the port and explained to us we where most welcome at his hotel but he though we ( couple in late 30s) may like staying at Yialos Beach Hotel instead which was right next door.
We instantly took a liking to the place, it had a great pool/ bar area and the place was spotless.
We stayed in a room with a pool view. The room was spotlessly clean, air-conditioned and basic. It had a bar fridge. We thought it was great value for the price we paid.
The pool was of 5star quality as was the service from Flora ( The Mojito Queen),Dimitri and another young lady whos name escapes me.
They all made us feel like "Guests" in their own house. Nothing was to much trouble, late afternoons around the pool bar having a few drinks and laughs with staff and other guests was a real highlight.
Bar Food was good for a snack. Cocktails where 1st Class.
We tried a few local restaurants which were recommended to us by staff which where very good. Please be aware though that "cash is king" in Greece and most places do not take cards.
Lambros called past most days to see we where happy. He recommended going to Maganari beach. It is a good 45min ride on scooter up and down some huge hills with some awesome views along the way. You can also get the bus and boat there but we arrived at around 10am prior to both the boat and bus arriving and we had the whole place to ourselves. It was one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever been to, crystal clear water !!!
We would have no hesitation recommending Yialos Beach Hotel to anyone. Rooms may not be 5star but everything else there is .
