Pretty hotel in quiet location but in easy walking distance of the beach and restaurants on Ornos beach. Met by Maria on arrival who was very attentive and gave us loads of information on local area. We hired a car and travelled around the whole island, visiting restaurants on her recommendation, which were really good. Easy to get the bus from near to the hotel into the Old Town of Mykonos. We stayed as 3 sisters in a triple room (plenty of room) and our mother (75) had ground floor room which was very comfortable with large private balcony, so if she wanted to come back from the beach early or have morning coffee, it was perfect for her. Taxi price to hotel from the airport is 20 Euros. Great yoghurt at breakfast time - recommend having with the fresh fruit served. Drinks are quite expensive at hotel and local beach bars, so you may want to enjoy a few drinks in your room/on the balcony before heading out for the evening. There's a fridge in each bedroom. Beach beds/parasols are very comfortable and charged for hire by the day (you can't hire them by the hour). They tend to start at 15 euros per person per day, depending how close to the sea you are - the closer to the sea, the more expensive the hire rate. Hotel can supply beach towels at 10 euros per clean towel. If going to Mykonos again, would stay here again as it's very relaxing, very friendly and helpful staff, rooms cleaned well every day and good breakfast (fried eggs, different types of bread, sausage, bacon, pastries, cheese, hams, fresh fruit, seeds, yoghurt, cereal etc)
This was our favorite hotel and stay of the 4 different hotels we stayed at in Greece. They greet you with a drink and give you local info. The hotel is adorable with a wonderful patio and the beach is across the backyard and around the corner. Good AC and nice breakfast. It's a 10 min bus ride to Little Venice. There's also Ornos beach, a fantastic bakery/restaurant, grocery stores, etc. We had the best consistent and friendliest customer service here. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
