“Excellent hotel, great pool, very helpful staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Lovely hotel with a great pool (not for children though as no shallow end). Great bar and lounge area around the pool as well. It's a 5 minute walk from centre of town so excellent choice for going out at night. Hotel itself is newly decorated and rooms are a great size. We read a few reviews where guests were not particularly impressed by the breakfast but it is just fine and runs until a late enough hour (11am) which is obviously a bonus if you've been out late the night before. Staff are extremely helpful - overall I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that opens onto the pool area - this will have a view of the harbour as well - gorgeo...

We stayed in the Resort in May 2014. We found a delightful restful resort with the friendly helpful staff always ready to make our stay just perfect. The town is an easy walk 5 minutes away.
The accommodation is clean and up to date, the restaurant provides a good variety of excellent options for breakfast.If we were to be lucky enough to return we would stay here.

Stayed early June.
Spectacular view over the bay and Mykonos famous wind-mills. Very convenient location close to city centre. Large and very clean rooms. I enjoyed the large and well maintained pool.
But no matter how good the location and amenities are, the staff makes you feel special. And the staff just did that: friendly, helpful and always having the right recommendation for you.
Thanks Toni. We felt pampered.

I stayed with 3 friends at Ilio Maris, it is a short walk from town but the an uphill trip home. We all had a fantastic time, our room was large and the view was amazing. The reception staff were friendly and very helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. It is the first hotel I have ever stayed at that looks better than the pictures. The only negative is that You have to be up early to get a sun bed by the pool because it fills up fast. Overall we had an awesome stay and would definitely come back again!

Spotlessly clean, friendly helpful staff, wonderful pool area and great views. Transfers from and back to airport by the lovely Tony. 5 minutes from the town, main bus stop, 24hour bakery! Stayed here end of May with a friend, and we partied till the early hours, but didn't hear a peep out of anyone else in the hotel, so had wonderful uninterrupted sleep! 1 thing to note is, there isn't a pathway outside of hotel gate-way, so your straight onto a busy road, with buses, and mopeds and quad bikes, so not very good for kids etc, but as a base, and for the nightlife it was brilliant. Joanna is a font of all knowledge, and nothing is too much to ask of any of the staff. Already booked to go back in September.

Room Tip: balcony and terrace a must to watch the wonderful sunset
