Enjoyed our stay at villa mata. Rooms had comfortable beds, great air conditioning and wifi. Staff were very friendly and always happy to help out. Close to the port with nice restaurants, although to get into town you either have to bus up the hill or walk (which is pretty hard to do during the day). Overall, had a great time staying at villa mata and would definitely recommend to others.


I really enjoyed my stay at Villa Mata! Lambros was so nice and helpful! Although you have to walk up a hill to go out, you are extremely close to the port and a beach as well! I loved my room and I had my own balcony, and even though I was alone, I had a double bed to myself. I would definitely suggest this place to anyone who is looking for a safe and nice place to stay in Ios.

Great staff! The villa is within a walking distance from the port and a 5 min bus ride to Chora.


We've spent an amazing weekend there!!

Best hostel ever! Great hospitality by Lambros the host. Had our own electric stove in our room as well. Would definitely come back to Villa Mata if i ever return.


True Cycladic vibes!!! Wife and I loved the place!! The overall building with the stone, the garden, the BBQ, the kindness of the family. The room was clean and comfortable and spacious with a lovely balcony overlooking Ios Cora. Most importantly, the family was always there with a smile to assist in any way possible. HIGHLY recommended. C u next year!


Most hospital staff I've ever met. Calm surrondings and close to the port with only 15min walk to the village.


This is the first review I have ever done and one fully deserved. Everything about the Villa Mata is highly commendable. Thank you Lambros for everything, a true home away from home. And loads of fun too! See you next year.


I have been backpacking around Europe with two girlfriends and this place is by far the best place we have stayed in. The rooms are clean and the gardens are beautiful to look at from you balcony or porch. Lambros was more than accommodating and always happy to help in anyway. We've already booked to stay here next year!!


Lambros is absolutely great!!!! The best host EVER! The place is lovely and clean, our room was huge! The location is convenient: really close to the port but close enough to the village without being so crowded. We loved it here and if we ever go back, Villa Mata will be the place to be!


Lambros is the boy!!!


Great Place


Lambrose was absolutely amazing, so helpful and incredibly nice! He really made our stay in ios amazing. The place itself is stunning with amazing gardens everywhere, and literally a 30 sec walk to one of the beaches and port. The kitchen available was so amazing and everything was very clean! We would definatly come back!


Lambros was very helpful and very friendly. A bit overpriced compared to what is available at other locations.


Just 50m from the beach. The staff were amazing, nice and helpful!! The room was also excellent extremely clean. It is in a very nice quiet area. Definately recommend it!!!


the place was full of people and why shouldn't it be? go to c urselves!


Very clean! Kind and Helpful staff! nice, near the beach, bars and restaurants and 10 min walking from the village. definately recommend it!!


the man who runs villa mata is lovely, the rooms are nice. the kitchen is a bit pokey. the shower is amazing, the best water pressure ever. its a fair walk up the hill into the party town but its pretty easy and its good excercise! the best gyros is up the hill at a place called time out. its 2 euros. its amazing.


clean, good prices!!! go!!!


Awesome place!! It was so much fun and the people were very generous and hospitable. Great value for money!!
