I stayed at Hotel Vanilla for 11 nights in September and had a fabulous time. The location is perfect, it is a short walk Ornos beach (where there are some lovely restaurants!) and it is a 15min bus ride into Mykonos Town. The hotel was basic but it was clean, comfortable and the staff were very friendly! Breakfast was basic... More

The overbooking-thing that has been described in several other reviews happened to us as well on our first day. Everything worked out, but it doesn't make you feel very welcome when the first thing you hear is "you can't stay here, you have to go somewhere else". Especially since we had booked this room almost half a year in advance.... More

We just came back from Greek Islands trip. Overall trip was wonderful. We stayed in Venus Vanilla hotel, Ornos, Mikonos. Hotel is clean, cozy and homey. Close to beautiful Ornos beaches and restaurants. Staff is very friendly and helpful, especially reception desk workers. Jenny at reception desk is very nice and cheerful person, helped with all questions. Valera, night shift... More

The hotel had a nice staff - helpful if you ask for anything. Public areas were great - the pool was beautiful and the lobby was relaxing. They had free wi-fi in the rooms and public areas. It was about a 5-minute walk to the beach (you have to pay to use the beach chairs on Ornos Beach) where there... More

I booked this hotel really cheap through onthebeach.com, I just needed a nice relaxing break from work and been wanting to visit Mykonos for ages. The hotel was beautiful and very clean, I wasn't expecting much so was pleasantly suprized! The buffet breakfast was rubbish but to be honest I'm not a big breakfast person so suited me fine, if...

We booked this hotel as part of a tour and it definitely met our needs. Unlike the experience other reviewers had, we found the staff to be helpful and professional. The rooms were very clean and the pool area and main areas of the hotel were very nice. It was a 5 minute walk to Ornos beach which was lovely... More

This was our first hotel while island hopping, and we stayed five nights to get into the holiday mood, and explore a bit of Mykonos. A short taxi ride from the airport, easy check-in, and we were off and running. The room was small but adequate, everything we needed. The beach is a 5 minute walk away, and Mykonos Town... More

Well it's not the Ritz but then we didn't pay for the Ritz either!! The room was adequate functional and extremely clean. A lovely pool and most often quiet. As for the staff and the guy on reception I have read with horror the comments. We had good friendly service at all times from all the staff but did treat... More

we booked 3 nights in the vanilla hotel over 3 months ago and when we got there last week we had NO reservation. The fellow at the desk said he would be moving us up the hill to another resort! We weren't interested in moving up the hill and my husband searched on trip advisory and apparently this isn't NOT... More

We stayed at the Vanilla Hotel last week which worked out to be at the end-of-season so it was rather quiet. Plus there was a mini storm the first 2days of our stay....those Mykonian winds are crazy! Although it was 24/25degrees, the wind was so strong that we were sat on the beach with goosebumps most of the time, so... More
