Where to stay on the Greek island of IOS!

The Petradi Hotel

Petradi Hotel Ios Island Greece (4)

When we walked into the little homely reception of the Petradi hotel and we were greeted by the warm smiles of Dimitra (hotel manager) and her very efficient receptionist Zoe we knew we had found a very special place. Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely ladies and over the days that passed I watched Dimitra wear many hats, from adviser in a motherly role to a group of Spanish girls on an end of school trip to  home cooking the best moussaka and tomato kheftethes (tomato balls) on IOS.  Petradi is a family run home from home hotel, all the staff were so friendly and helpful which made our stay so memorable we certainly want to return and I also felt compelled to share my experience with you too.

Location

Just 10 minuets from the port and on the edge of the main chora (town). I would say easy to walk into town but the roads are typical island style with no pavements, however with care it only takes around 10 mins to walk. A long walk down a very steep path and you find the the famous Mylopatas beach Full of great bars and restaurants and one of the best beaches to swim on the island.Petradi Hotel Ios Island Greece (7)

We found the swimming pool at the Petradi Hotel one of the best we have used, very clean with an infinity view over the Aegean. There is only a small sunbathing terrace so be quick to reserve your sunbeds.Petradi Hotel pool Ios Island Greece
