Horror hotel. Dodgy owner/manager. We booked 10 nights on lastminute.com. It said there was air conditioning, safe and wifi. Upon check in we discovered that air conditioning could be used for 7 euros (!!!) per day and the safe for 3 euros per day. Unheard of in any other hotel and not mentioned anywhere before our booking. This only happened after we waited 10 minutes at reception with nobody around, only to find a hidden sign saying "for *more* information go to the pool bar". We went to the pool bar, it took another while for the manager to show up at reception. We later learned that there is never anybody at the reception, you always have to ask somebody at the pool bar (when it's open... we never dared looking for someone when the bar is closed). WiFi almost never had internet connection. We notified the manager on the first day. He said the telephone company had a problem in the area due to a power cut and they would fix it by the next day. It almost never worked for our whole stay. The bathroom in our room was tiny: a cube barely 2 meters each side (including height). You had to leap over the toilet to enter the shower and you had to use the sink sideways since the toilet was too close in front of it. On the day we checked in the shower pan was stained. Understandbly, because no one could properly clean it since the toilet blocked proper access. The toilet was stained too. The shower box was super cramped, barely any space to rub yourself with a bathtub faucet unexplainably fitted and bulging out. Flimsy shower doors and a flimsy hanger that could not hold the shower head into position, risking that it fell to the floor or on your head each time you turned the knob. There was a holder for a shower gel dispenser but no dispenser. We asked the manager, who gave us two tiny bottles of shower gel, saying there is no dispenser, but the cleaner would have replaced the bottles when empty. We later discovered that the cleaner had no clue where to find those replacement bottles; she was told to place shower gel only in the "suites". The toilet seat would not stay up. The bathroom ceiling rattled when the wind was blowing outside, vibrating and making noise. The bedroom is carpeted. But the cleaner clearly has no tool for properly cleaning it: no hoover, no kind of machine... just a mop!!! in fact the carpet is stained and dirty. The room was serviced randomly: some days we realized no one touched the bathroom and on a couple of days not even the bed was made. The upper bed sheet was narrower than the bed, stained and was changed only a few times in 10 days. The lower bed sheet and the pillow cases were never changed. The towels were changed only once after 7 days because we expressedly asked for. A pointed iron nail protruded from the bed frame on one side. At breakfast, the waiter would bring you your food. The same for everybody and the same every single day. No choice. 1 bread roll, 1 cheese triangle, 1 boiled egg, 1 portion of jam, 1 of honey, 1 slice of plain discount grocery cake. Again, unheard of! Please stay away at all costs!!!

We only stayed for 1 night before flying home and were really pleased with it. Its a friendly family run hotel right on the beach. there's a lovely pool, bar and restaurant on site. the food and drinks were lovely and very reasonable. The hotel is basic, basic rooms, beds, bathrooms etc. But for the price.. you cant go wrong.. the location couldn't be better. Super friendly people.. very accommodating. We would definitely use the hotel again. If its cheap and cheerful, friendly staff and lovely pool area right on the beach, this is definitely worth a look!!

Ours rooms were cleaned daily, and towels changed 2-3 days as were the sheets. Rooms are very clean with plenty of wardrobe space, drawers, shelves etc and a lovely balcony to sit and watch the world go by. Breakfast is served to your table, consisting of breadroll, butter, jam, marmalade, honey, ham and eggs plus cheese. Plenty of tea and coffee too. Lunch time meals are really good value and large enough for two adults to share one meal! All the staff are very willing to help and nothing was too much trouble, even on our last morning John had contacted the taxi company to get a print off of our collection time which was so helpful and really appreciated.

We went to the Ionikos yesterday just to say hello and use the pool. They have no guests staying at the moment. They are getting ready to close up for the winter. Chrissy was open for food and the bar was open. They must be doing something right as there were about 20 people eating there. The pool is lovely and very clean. Quick WiFi around the pool and even down to their sunbeds on the beach.

I am staying here at moment and I am having the most relaxed holiday in an amazing setting. The rooms are basic but spotless and are cleaned every day. I asked for a sea view and I got one and I am not disappointed. On arrival at 9-30pm we were greeted by John who was very friendly and gave us a large bottle of nice cold water which was very much appreciated after our long journey from glasgow. Nothing us too much bother from all staff who are very friendly. Chrissie the manager runs the pool bar and she is so friendly and helpful and speaks excellent English. She knows all customers by name which I think is brilliant and makes u feel welcome. The pool is amazing with amazing views of the sea and it is located right on the beach. The food is great and very cheap and large portions given. The hotel bar closes at 6 but this is not a problem as there are many bars and tavernas within walking distance and it's great to have the peace and quiet on our return later that night. I would happily return here again and I highly recommend a visit. If u are thinking of coming here DO IT u won't b disappointed. I am here until the 1st Oct 2018 and I am absolutely loving it. Thank u Ionikos for a brilliant holiday in amazing settings.

We visited this hotel pool and restaurant for 10 days recently. Although we were not staying in this hotel the rooms at the back all appeared to have fantastic sea views. The pool was very good and the beds were not cramped round it. The lunch time snack menu was excellent and the portions served were massive and excellent value. Chrisi ran things and she was brilliant and could not do enough for you. She really made our stay there memorable.

With the ionikos hotel,s pool open to the public my wife and i visited twice,each time there was plenty of beds available and we really enjoyed swimming in the pool.We cannot comment on the accommodation but regards to the outer area it is situated in a perfect position overlooking the beach and beyond.Each day we were there we had lunch and found the food really tasty and the staff very friendly especially the american greek lady (sorry we did not find out what her name was).We generally drink dry red wine and when we asked for some the lady searched the store and found a bottle which we really enjoyed.The following day when we went for lunch she had went out of her way and bought another bottle for us which we thought was a really nice touch.Overall we found the ionikis as far as the outside area, staff, and food were concerned a really nice place to visit.

Came to the hotel at 9pm with no one at reception so after waiting and looking about we called the hotel. A man came to the reception and we showed our reservation through booking.com and he told us he had no rooms and turned us away. We called booking.com for help, they tried to call the hotel but he didn’t answer which leads us to believe that we were double booked. Might be nice but we’ll never know

Really enjoyed our stay here, such a good location on the beach & our room had amazing views right across Kefalos Bay. Rooms are very basic slightly dated Greek rooms, one small fridge & hairdryer, balcony & small bathroom but this is typical for Greece, these were cleaned most days. Well kept pool, bar and restaurant area, had no problem getting sunbeds & although only ate lunch here the food was very good, there is also a table tennis table. Breakfast is continental & adequate, it was offered free when we booked the room so for us was a bonus! Air con is €6 a night, I never use it & there was some confusion over this even though we said day one we didn't want it they tried to charge us for it, I do believe this was a genuine mistake & just make sure if you are not using it you return the control to reception & don't keep it in your room! Supermarket at the end of the road for all basic needs, & plenty of Tavernas & cafes within a couple of minutes walk. Stated free WIFI which there was, could may be a little clearer that this is only in the public areas, there is none in the rooms & its not the strongest of signals so if you require it in the evenings you will have to make other plans! Would stay again, had a very chilled out holiday & this was the perfect base

Overall we enjoyed our stay, however would not stay again.The location by the beach superb, close to amenities and restaurants, some staff great, very friendly, particularly Chrissy & Soula. Well kept gardens, nice pool area. Room was ok, a bit dated, as were the hard & slightly lumpy beds, bathroom was tiny, the view of the beach from the balcony was excellent though and made up for the rooms shortcomings. As per previous reviews, breakfast was more than adequate but monotonous with no fresh & healthy produce. Sunloungers by the pool were 'reserved' with towels early, for the entire day and then used for only a few hours. Often there were no available loungers but only 3 or 4 (out of 18-20) with people in them. The charge for air conditioning at 6eur per day was our biggest annoyance. We booked through last-minute.com - no mention of a charge on the website, it does state extra charges for other things such as safe & cots. (We could have survived without aircon but at night with the balcony door open the mosquitos were savage and we got eaten alive.) The hotel wouldnt budge, saying LM had been told. LM never responded to several attempts at contact. Upon checking other sites, some advise there is a fee, but as many do not (including LM 3+ weeks later), someone needs to take responsibility for making sure the info is correct! Seems neither the Ionikos nor lastminute.com are customer focused, it's all about $$$. Buyer beware.
