I just stayed 10 days in hotel Katerina beginning of July 2017.
Where should I start?
My time there was way beyond my biggest expactions. The hotel is run by the whole family and everyone has his/her own tasks. Let me tell you that when you look at them or talk with them you don't have the impression that this is a task for them. Without exageration, I have never seen such kind and good hearted human beings in hotel business. They are commited and devoted and they do everything with passion and love. They do more than you can imagine. This is a family hotel, so no wild, fancy parties here and that is a good thing. Just relaxation, enjoying the view, the pool, the company, the sun. The father has build everything on his own (with help obviously) and everything is so well preserved and taken care of. The view and pool are exquisite. Breakfast are delicious and you have different choices. The HOMEMADE jam cooked by the mom herself which is so yummy. In 10 days I ate breakfast only 2 times at other places (for more or less the same price), but I preferred the one from Hotel Katerina. What they all do together requires a lot of work and and I am amazed and I admire them for that.
It was my first time in Greece and I fell in love with Ios, with people in general on this Island but mostly with hotel Katerina and its family. Like a lot of customers I talked with, they come back every year because of this lovely family.
Dear Vicki, Maria, Petro, Katerina, grandma and grandpa, thank you for everything, the information, your help, the kindness, the generosity and the daily smiles. Stay as you are. Take care. L.
