I booked this break on the Saturday and flew out on the Sunday, so was indeed last minute. I have been to Zante before and knew what Laganas was like, but hoped this was far enough away from the main strip to be a relaxing break.

These are my main pros & cons
Pro's Pretty Hotel with nice grounds, bar area with nice cocktails & reasonable priced food
Con's Beds very hard & uncomfortable, paper thin walls, rooms are tired

I was not expecting the Ritz when i arrived, but the rooms in this hotel just look tired. If they had a deep clean & a lick of paint they would look so much better. They have the basics you need, but the rooms are very dark as there is no window & people had put graffiti on the notices on the walls. My room smelt of stale smoke, the towels had holes in them & the bed spread had fag burns in it. All small things, but when you add then together it makes everything seem tired & dirty. The shower tap is the wrong way, so to get hot water you have to turn it to cold, again nothing major, but could be easy to fix. My big issue with this hotel was the bed, i like a firm mattress, but this was like stone. I would wake up with pins & needles in my arm as i sleep on my side & the walls are so thin you can here people next door snoring. I was unfortunate enough to be next door to a couple who liked to shout & argue at 1am making their 2 young children scream. The balconies in block 3, i was in 312, didn't seem to get any sun & were in the shade most of the day & they are not private at all. There is no solid divide between the balconies as there are in most hotels ive stayed at, but these are open railings, so you can see & hear what everyone is saying. As for the location, it is about a 15 min walk from the top of the strip, so you don't get the main hustle & bustle, but there is a loud hotel across the road that you can hear music from until fairly late/early in the morning. Its a 10 min walk to the beach. The bar at the hotel does some great cocktails & has a happy hour. The food on the menu is a reasonable price and tasty. If you are going to actually self cater while here be warned the local supermarkets don't really sell proper food, you can get very basic items like bread, pasta, pot noodles etc, but not really anything in the way of fruit & veg & the hotel does not allow you to bring food & drink to the pool area. It has to be bought from the bar area.

Personally i would not return to this hotel, but it depends what you want out of a break away, i wanted peace and relaxation, but didn't feel i found it at this hotel.

Just got home from ilios after a one week break with my family.
The ilios was nice a little basic but all you needed was in the room.
Maid came in and cleaned everyday.The pool area was clean and well kept.
The bar / restaurant was small but all you wanted, the boy who works there in the day was brilliant (sorry i've forgot his name) all happy and cheerful. Tea and coffee only 1euro all day. Food was nice and a reasonable price. Although the soft drinks were expensive at 1.90 euro for a can of pop.There is no shop in the Ilios but there is one about 100metres down the road which is only about 1 cent difference in price than the main market on the strip.
There are plenty of restaurant close by and not difficult to walk to, we had one family member with walking difficulties but could manage to do the walks ok.Restaurants that can recommend are Bon Appitte , Robin hood, kostas tavern.
A Restaurant to stay away from is Zandos at the bottom of the road before you get on the strip. They had blackboards on advertising Lobster for 9euro So we ordered it When it arrived it came and it was tiny and didn't smell to fresh. Once we had finished our meal.We asked for the bill when it came they charged us 24euro for the lopster, when questioned them and said about the blackboards they were removed and were no where in sight.
The only NEGATIVE at the Ilios is Entertainment for the children , or the lack of entertainment .There is the pool but it is small and was cold but this could be because the time of year. There is a pool table inside and outside, football pitch ,volleyball and tennis courts.But no entertainers to play pool games in the day , so the kids seem to be boreded by the end of the week. Come evening the Ilios has no enterainment at all.

Stayed here with a group of friends at the end of May. Accommodation was basic, but incredibly clean and tiday. Food was nice and staff were very friendly. Pool area was always clean and tidy with plenty of sunbeds for everyone. Spirits are generous to say the least (the alcoholic type)!
I would definitely come back

Spent one week at this complex and enjoyed it. Clean, Helpful and spacious rooms. Only drawback was the walk to beach. Kids enjoyed pool. Drinks pricey for kids compared to local shop, 1.90 for a can of pop at bar but 100 yards down road 80 cents. Pleasant owner plus staff are a plus. Went early season before madding crowd arrived, 18-30 crowd. Would i go back again? Yes! By the way Airport was a nightmare leaving!! Too small and soooo crowded and many queues, AWFUL!!!

Room Tip: Shop around for good eateries at reasonable prices. Had room above bar area, bit noisy at times
