Liked: Everything beautiful pool, close to downtown and port, they pick you up from the port, the family who runs the hostel is very friendly and they make you feel like you are at home. They serve food and make drinks all very reasonable prices and our room had a balcony overlooking the water. The best hostel we have stayed in our European travels for a month and the best in Greece.

Liked: My best friend and I stayed at Golden Sun Hotel for 6 nights, It would have been extended if we could have stayed longer. Absolutely loved it here in Ios & at Golden Sun. It's Like a 5 star hotel, amazing pool, great food and the owners Alex and Adriana are such lovely friendly people who make u feel right at home. The Hotel is 10 mins from Chora village up hill- good for the exercise.Loved the location of Hotel, out of all the hustle and bustle to enjoy your sleep. Bus runs right outside the door every 15 mins so handy for getting into Chora for a night out takes 2mins and Mylopotas beach 5mins. Thank you Adriana & Alex for an amazing stay and we will definitely return soon. :-) :) Urzula & Niamh from Ireland!

Liked: The Golden Sun was FANTASTIC. My friend and I stayed there and really enjoyed the fact that it was the perfect distance between the port and the city so you could get everywhere by foot (or scooter!). Alex and his family were very welcoming and helpful and made our holiday all the more enjoyable.... I will definately go back there again!

29 July 2009 Amy would recommend this property

Liked: The pool area is absolutely lovely, it overlooks the beach. The staff are wonderful - friendly and really helpful. Our ferry got cancelled and they managed to organise us tickets on a replacement ferry and get us to the port at really short notice. It's only a short walk back from town (and a short bus trip up the hill!), only a few minutes from one of the beaches and is just generally really lovely.

01 July 2007 patrick would recommend this property

Liked: I stayed in Greece in various holidays for two weeks and this place, for the money we payed was incredible. Views of the beech, swimming pool and 10 minutes from the town centre, although you did need to learn a few shortcuts......Honestly incredible value, spent two weeks staying in terrible accomodation for the same price. Not a 5****** but was great to have a little luxury for a while!
