“What a wonderful World.”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

When we returned to Tilos this time, naturally we chose to stay at Dream Island again.

We did not regret this decision.

Akis and his parents are still running this little picturesque white and blue hotel. Situated right on the beach in Livadia in quiet surroundings this hotel offers exactly what we seek on the small Greek islands.

Free wifi in common areas, good breakfast, beautifully decorated bright rooms with large balconies and occational in-room or on-balcony visits by Rita.

Love it!

We always enjoy Tilos very much, and Dream Island Hotel has an important role in this.

Oh yeah...by the way.....Rita is the Dream Island cat. A friendly true Tilos-Tabby :-)

This is a wonderful hotel in a brilliant position. We stayed for almost a month and were very sad when the time came to leave. It is perfectly positioned halfway round the bay and is clean and fresh even at the end of the season. The owner, Gianni, is so kind and helpful and is an excellent cook and gardener. There were always flowers in the room and extra gifts of food almost every day. We had a great room ,number seven with access to both sun and shade. The room was kept spotlessly clean by Adrianna. We can't recommend it more highly and will definitely return.

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed good each having different advantages.

Just returned from 17 nights at Dream Island. The owners Giannis and Kiki, together with their son Akis and the indispensable Adriana, were perfect hosts - nothing was too much trouble. We cannot think of any negatives - the apartment was spacious and immaculate. The location right by the beach was ideal with sunbeds always available. The breakfast ,served alfresco, was excellent - coffee, yoghurt with fruit and honey, toast jam, toasties, etc. The lunchtime food was also excellent. Tilos is a lovely quiet island, the most exciting things to happen were the ferries arriving and the fruit seller coming by shouting "figs, grapes, melons. Natural from Tilos. Very sweet. Sexy vitamins." All in all a perfect relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: We had an upstairs room - no. 11 which faced east giving early morning sun and shade in the afternoo...

Another great time at Dream Island and we are already planning our next trip!

Rooms are simple and very clean. The hotel is at the end of a little stretch of hotels and restaurants so still very quiet even in the middle of August.

The sea is gorgeously clear, beach is stoney but all the shops sell those cheap beach shoes - which will make for a more elegant entry into the sea!

Rooms are self catering but also lots of reasonable restaurants a few mins walk away. Our favourite is Nautilus for local crispy Tilos Shrimps - yum!

Tips: check out ferries before you book to make sure you can get there on the days you want. Rhodes mostly had a daily ferry in high season and takes about 1.5 hours. And don't forget to ask for a souvenir painted pebble from dad :)

This hotel is absolutely a very good choice if you want to visit Tilos. However, I have experienced more pleasant hotels for a much better price on other greek islands. The rooms are spacious but lack atmosphere. This hotel is used by several tour operators. The service and the facilities are not up to hotel standard at that price level. However, the location is great - right on the beach.

Room Tip: I our view, only the rooms on first floor are attractive.

Akis S, Owner at Dream Island, responded to this review, August 1, 2013
Hi Sverre, first of all thanks for the complimentary part of the review!
Now lets clarify some things.
1) Always remember that Tilos is a small island with not so many resources. For everything we offer(which is very much actually for the Tilos island standards) we have to pay extra than most of the other islands.
2) The cost of building and maintaining a hotel,especially after year 2000, in a small island like tilos(where almost everything is a monopoly) is quite high and we do maintenance every year.
3) When somebody books in a hotel via a third party not all the money go to the hotel.
4) A successful hotel in Tilos must have both tour operators and online bookings. We have specific apartments contracted to each company...
5) Finally when you were asked if everything with the apartment is ok and if you liked it, like we do with every guest, you never made any complains, on the contrary you said that everything was ok.
6) I think that if you had bigger "Tilos experience", than these few days that you stayed, you would understand me!

3 weeks in Dream Island and Tilos was" yoga for" soul and body. The owners and the housemaid did everything to give us an unforgettable holiday.
It was clean. The athmosphere was very friendly. Everything was uncomplicated.
The island is beautiful with hospitable people.
Many good tavernaes and some nice music-bars. You have all you need for a relaxing holiday. We really want to get back to this Pearl.
