We stayed here for 5 nights on our island hopping holiday, it was our first stop. It all depends on what you are looking for when visiting some of the slightly more remote Greek Islands. We've been visiting Greece on and off for around 40 years and have visited many of the islands. The standard of accommodation and the actually... More

This is possibly a common trip advisor dilemma; I don't want to give this place (and the island) a great review because everyone will want to start coming here and it will become more difficult to book. Anyway, you have to consider the owners and their livelihoods and do your duty - in this case it was Christos and his... More

This a nicely located pension: close to the village and main beach, but out of the noise. The owner is very nice and welcoming. However, the rooms could be cleaned daily given the sand of the beach, etc. The wifi is not accessible from many rooms. Still one of the best hotels on a very small and nice island.

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst island hopping round the Little Cyclades. We arrived on Donousa without pre-booking accommodation and room owners met the ferry. The rooms are only a short walk across the beach from the ferry but to get there by car you have to drive right round the village. We were shown to room 3, a decent... More

Any review for places on Donoussa must be considered in the context of the island overall. Donoussa is a very small island (you can walk round it in about 4 hours), with a permanent population of only about 160. Lifestyle is simple - this is not a place of luxury villas. Iliovasilema (which means sunset) is simple and basic accommodation,... More

Christos has his own way of doping things, so our first impression was a bit chaotic as our highly international party was collected from the boat. The hotel is at the opposite end of the beach from the port and there is no road along the beach - wonderful - so a short walk but a long drive round the... More

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay here so much that we ended up[ staying for 5 nights instead of the 3 that we had planned- and would have happily stayed much, much longer if that had been possible. Christos drove us from and to the port, and was helpful and friendly. The food at his taverna- (on the door-step)... More
