We originally were going to stay at another hotel by the beach in Ios, but the hotel was completely horrible, so be decided to look for another and found Ios Palace. It was a great choice as we were given a large, fancy room that suited us perfectly. It was roomy, clean, comfortable and equipped with AC. The hotel itself had amazing views of the beach as it was situated on a hill. We loved the location of the two pools, however it would have been much more pleasant if the pools were not salt water.
