Wow... we booked this trip at the complete last minute after not being able to get into a number of boutique hotels in Mykonos. I was a little put off by the name, but being desperate for something, took a chance. What a phenomenal surprise. We ended up liking this hotel so much that we canceled the Santorini portion that we had planned and stayed in Mykonos 4 days longer!
The hotel is charmingly decorated, and each room is different. We stayed in a smaller room with a small balcony overlooking the ocean and the pool grounds. My only complaint about the room is minor, but the beautiful shower (like most European showers) spilled water on the floor, but with a towel on the ground was not a big deal. My only other complaint about the hotel is that WiFi isn't free, although it is not expensive, so we used it a lot. However, the good FAR FAR FAR outweighs these 2 tiny little nit-picky bads. First, the morning buffet is the most amazing buffet I have ever had, and we do hotel buffets in many upscale resorts. It includes anything you want, however, the cheese selection is to die for, unlimited champagne, and great coffee made this a favorite time of day during our stay. The pool is great, and we often found ourselves ordering food and laying out there for hours. The wonderful gentleman who works outside at the pool area kept us entertained with fun music and a great attitude. The restaurant in the hotel was good also, with a captivating view during sunset over the ocean. The entire staff was gracious and we enjoyed getting to know them over the course of our stay.
The location of the hotel is great, and we didn't need a rental car because the bus picks you up right down the street and will take you anywhere you want to go on island, with a short 5 minute ride into Hora. Very convenient for us. There are 2 beaches within a 5 minute walk, both gorgeous with restaurants and bars and beach service if you are interested.
I dream of going back to this wonderful hotel. Highly recommend.
