“We LOVED Windmills!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2011

Having just recently stayed in The Windmills hotel I can safely say it is a wonderful hotel. The rooms are spacious, each have a en suite bathroom, great air con, tv, a fridge- pretty much everything you could need in IOS. It is located pretty much in the center of Chora Village, everything is walking distance and no restaurant/supermarket/club/bar/shop is longer than a 10minute walk. The largest beach on the island is also only a 15minute walk!! Not to mention the owner Pavlos- who is amazing!! If you need anything, be it a restaurant recommendation , advice about other greek islands, different beaches on the island or even just someone to have a chat with Pavlos is there for his guests at all times. Windmills was our little home for 10 days and we were so sad to leave not only Ios but Windmills too!

My girlfriend and i stayed here. wow what a great location. 200 meters from the first few pubs and clubs. 2 mins walk if that.

the rooms were so clean and tidy, cleaned and checked every day. it is a small hotel and a great place to meet people. some people have come back there a few times. i know we will.

Then there is Pavlos, the owner. Wow what a guy and this guy is the man. He is a local master who can point you to anything, from good food and drink, to tips on how to enjoy Ios at its best.

He help my girlfriend and I out with everything. Our first bar to have a drink, then helping us find work for the summer, a home to live in and so much more. All the things on the internet about him are true. If you get to Ios and need a great family type of place to stay or even some help come see pavlos at The windmills room. Seriously we have travelled Europe for 4 months and not meet a man like pavlos.

Room Tip: all the rooms a exellent, we stayed to two differant rooms they were as good as eachother.

Very clean!! Excellent atention from the owner, Pavlos.
Near Mylopotas beach and about 100 meters from the main square of Chora village, where there are bars and restaurants to get out; despite this
it´s a very quiet place to rest, you hear almost nothing of the noise from the night clubs.
There are markets, laundry, bank and all the facilities 5 minutes walking.
I would definitely return here!! And of course recommend it.
