Lovely friendly family run hotel
Cannot thank the lovely owners of this hotel for the incredible service they gave us during our time here. They couldn't do enough for us and offer free transport to and from the port. The hotel itself is incredible value for money with good sized, clean rooms and a lovely pool area, all with incredible views. Cannot recommend it enough, massive thank you to all at Skala for giving us the best stay, can't wait to return to Ios soon!
Even though we had a reservation, it was clear that our stay was unexpected and improvised. At the ferry port there was no one with a sign for us (as had been promised) and we did not know what to do. After a while, a young woman (who turned out to be the owner's daughter) asked if we were going to the Skala and called for transportation. When we arrived, chairs and furniture were being stowed away, the pool was half full of green water, and a group of home appliances in disrepair were on the path to our room. The breakfast consisted of coffee, bread (with honey, butter, cream cheese, sliced cheese and ham) and an unpeeled fruit with a knife. When we asked for eggs and bacon we were told we would have to pay extra. We ended up paying 18 additional euros for our breakfasts both days. In the afternoon we spent a considerable amount of time calling and walking to different restaurants only to discover that almost all of them had closed for the season. Shops were also closed. When we asked about checkout the next day, we were told we could stay a bit longer if we wished. We agreed on leaving at 2:30 p.m. However, at 1:30 p.m, when we were not yet ready, we were unexpectedly told we had to leave immediately. In conclusion, we did feel welcome nor well received.
Wonderful Hotel, people and incredible views.
We arrived at Skala Hotel having not got off to the best of starts to a holiday, we had not realized that Ios is a small Island North of Santorini rather than on the island itself! However, it turned out to be a fantastic "mistake" to make, I probably wouldn't have bothered to book had I realized you needed a ferry to get there and gone somewhere more direct, but, that's what makes Ios so very special, especially off season, you have to make a little effort to get there but the result is so very worth it! Skala is owned and ran by Kyriacos and his family, a more pleasant, helpful, courteous and hard-working family you would struggle to find. Nothing was too much trouble, breakfast was excellent with a fantastic view to take in whilst eating. The room was clean, spacious with incredible views of the town below, sunrise and sunset here is an unforgettably beautiful experience. The rooms were cleaned daily, clean towels daily and bedding changed every other day, the hotel itself appears to mimic a Greek street in terms of layout, each room has their own area to sit and relax outside, the layout gives a very communal feel with the other guests. Whilst rated as only two stars on LoveHolidays (with whom we booked) it was apparent from some other guests staying with us who clearly had the means to stay wherever they chose that Skala is very special and well worth seeking out especially given the prices. Skala isn't a huge 5 star Hotel complex with staff seeing to your every desire, it isn't right next to the beach, its on a very steep hill also despite this, you'll struggle to find a better view in Greece never mind on Ios, friendlier owners and staff. Whilst we stumbled upon Skala almost by accident, it is no accident that we plan to return many more times to this exquisite place.
We stayed here for 6 nights it was the end of the ‘Season’ so we had the pool and hotel pretty much to ourselves The rooms are typically Greek but spotlessly clean. Sheets changed every other day, fresh towels daily. The views from the hotel are stunning along with the sunsets but would urge you to hire a car and get around this beautiful clean island with beaches that are amazing
Spectacular view - the best!
Came back yesterday from Ios and the fabulous Skala Hotel. We booked this as a last minute deal, travelling around 5 days after we booked, and we got a really good deal. We flew to Santorini and then had to get a ferry to the island of Ios, which we had never heard of before to be honest. When we got off the ferry (about a 45 min trip) we were collected, along with another 2 holiday makers, by the owner so there was no need to get a taxi) On the way to the accommodation he pointed out various sites of interest and told us about the island in general. We went to Reception and waited for the other holidaymakers to check in. The owner (Kyriacos) then told me we had a slight problem, however this was minor and was sorted out with a room change after one night as promised and all was ok. The Hotel is like a mini Greek Street with various styles of accommodation, each only 2 storeys high, all beautiful to look at with flowers and decorative pots outside. The most stunning part of this Hotel, and it really IS stunning, is the view. The hotel is high on a hill (bit of a struggle walking back to the Hotel in the heat, but there is a taxi rank close to the supermarket which only costs 6 euros and takes minutes). I could have literally just sat on the wall at the Hotel and watched the view for hours, it is really that beautiful. The view is of the village below and shows all the white and blue houses and churches, really stunning. The Hotel is an ideal place to just relax and chill out.
