We were met at the ferry by our hosts and driven the short drive up the hotel to the lovely hotel. We were then given a quick guide of the island and shown short cuts to both the port and chora town. The room was comfortable and clean although the shower did leak a bit but it soon dried. The... More

I found Golden Sun Hotel through the internet and I checked the Tripadvisor customer reviews before reserving a room. Well, after a week at Golden Sun I assure you that everything good I read about this family hotel is true. An ideal example of what Greek hospitality should be all about: warm, helpful individuals, with the right balance between professionalism... More

After arriving late and bewildered at the port. We asked the tourist centre for directions. We were then whisked away by the most pleasant owner/operator of a hotel I have ever met. Alexandro told us places to go, how to get there, where to eat and answered any question we could have thrown at him. A family run business that... More

My girlfriend and I stayed 8 nights at this hotel and was very pleased with our stay. We had to change hotel on Ios because we was unhappy with our former hotel. Golden Sun helped us and had a very nice room for us. The owner was so friendly and helpful. He was always ready to answer our questions and... More

Stayed at Golden Sun with three friends and had a really good experience. The staff are incredibly friendly offering free port transfers as well as recommendations for places to eat and drink. The hotel is conveniently located close to the port and a short walk away from the main village. This makes it a quiet place to stay whilst being... More

I have been stayed in this structure this August and I might say that it was one of the best records from my trip to Greece. The owners, Alexandro, his wife and daughter Sofia made it really unforgettable! This family made you feel a very special guest, like you are the most important people in the whole island. They treat... More

I'm very sorry to do this, because our stay at the Golden Sun was actually quite nice until the very end. The rooms are nothing spectacular, but are not uncomfortable. The pool is very nice and the location is suitable, close to the port and about a 10 minute walk from the main town. However our biggest let down was... More

Some people have just some nerve ,that is all I can say.If you see our reviews about the staff we have 100% . MsJacqui was suppose to leave the room at check -out which was... More

Basic rooms reasonably clean, small size and decoration on a three bed room. swimming pool is nice, but 15mins of uphill walk into town is tiring especially if no car available. Our room had a little smell and noise from the pool and fridge. Overall it's ok but not top choice..

Dear Sir, We respect your opinion,but I am afraid there was a negative feeling to begin with.First of all ,you had reserved a triple room and you only told us upon arrival that the third one could not make it and we did not charge you for the third person even though we had the right to.You arrived with your...

After a frantic couple of weeks travelling the Golden Sun was the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate! Was soo impressed with the family who own the hotel, they were incredibly welcoming and friendly and keen to give us loads of tips and advice on what to do/where to go on the island. The rooms were immaculate, pool was delightful... More
