“Spoiled rotten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I have never been so "spoiled" while staying at a hotel. The staff went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable and unforgettable as possible. We took advantage of the daily spa treatments, used the facilities, and had a wonderful stay. The food at the restaurant was very good and the breakfast buffet was huge and delicious. All I can say is "ditto" to all the positive comments. I can't wait to go back!

We stayed here in the hotel's final week in October. It was obviously not at full occupancy, but was so calm and relaxing. A very boutique feel despite it being quite a large hotel by Mykonos standards.
The decor is clean, white and light with fabulous views over the bay from practically every part of the hotel. Beautiful pool and about 50 metres to the lovely shingle/sand beach. A bus to the town runs regularly and is about a 5 minute walk however youll find it easier to rent a car if you want to see the island, particularly at the time of year we visited as services are limited.
The room had a huge comfortable (firm) bed, tv, free wifi, fridge and very effective ac. The bathroom was kept fully stocked with Korres and another premium Greek brand of toiletries and plenty of towels, in fact I think it was serviced dscreetly around 3 times a day. We had a large balcony which was furnished with two chairs and a table which caught e in all day.
The hotel also gives free access to the thalassotherapy suite which was great but we did not try any other services.
The downside for me was the price of food and drink. I don't mind paying hotel prices usually but 15 euros for a cocktail is just crazy in my view so we did not eat or drink with the exception of breakfast which was extensive, varied and generally excellent. Notos restaurant on the beach offered a far better alternative and the hotel did not seem to mind us bringing in wine purchased at local supermarkets (fabulous assyrtiko from santorini) despite saying otherwise in their brochure.
I would definitely return here again, it's a lovely, sophisticated and stylish boutique-style hotel.

Room Tip: We had a standard room and it was anything but, all rooms are built on mountainside so have great vi...

You know those things you read about where people spend hours taking oil baths, rejuvenation treatments and water massages from jet powered jacuzzis that put the hoses at your local fire department to shame? Yeah, that's here.
You can also eat at the amazing restaurant or walk across the road to the beach, rent a couple chairs, buy a GIANT Mythos beer at the super market for 1.75 Euros (and a can of Pringles) and have one awesome 10 euro day.
Awesome location, staff and stay.

We have stayed at the hotel on 4 occasions in the last 7 years. Everytime, has been a magical experience from start to finish. You are welcomed in reception on arrival, by warm and friendly staff. Luggage is taken to your room by an extremely helpful "bell boy". Breakfast is an experience in itself: everything from bread to champagne!!! if you can manage a big breakfast, you certainly don't need lunch! The pool area is a perfect place to relax. Pool staff have your every need covered. Often offering cool refreshing drinks or fresh fruit, free of charge. The spa is a beautiful tranquil place to be pampered and revitalised. Every member of staff have always been polite and helpful, whatever time of day or night. Nothing is too much trouble. The Boutique is an added bonus and we always come away with a pair of shoes and at least one handbag!! The beach is a couple of minutes walk away with a selection of bars and restaraunts. We prefer to eat in the hotel, where you have the choice of bar meals or al a carte, the choice is yours. We have always had beautiful rooms with stunning views across the ocean. We have met the manager on many occasions, always asks how we are enjoying our day and if we are happy with everything. What more can you ask from a holiday. Try it, you will love it just like we did. See you in 2013, Sharron & Andy

We stayed here in May and really enjoyed our experience. The architecture made us feel like we vacationing in a special place. The view off our balcony was breath taking and the staff was extremely attentive. Room was beautiful and clean. We rented an ATV to be able to explore the island and were very happy with that. The ATVs on Myknonos have very little power, so sometimes going uphill with two people was a bit laughable. The spa is lovely. We do not recommend dining with the hotel though. It's a very fancy and overpriced menu. For example, we ordered the tiger shrimp appetizer....it was literally "a shrimp." The plural of shrimp there is shrimps...so understand that. Also, if you are offered bread, it's an upsell rather than part of the meal. The food was good, but I would recommend going into town and having dinner there.

Room Tip: They all have a beautiful view. Some are a higher walk than others, but if you're travelling the...

I’m sorry to say that our first trip to the beautiful island of Mykonos was marred by our worst hotel experience ever. My wife and I booked a 7 day vacation at the Hotel………..in October expecting to have a wonderful time sightseeing and enjoying the spectacular scenery. Instead, we were confronted with one problem after another.
Although on our arrival, we were quite happy and satisfied with our accommodation, things started to go wrong when we decided to rent a car from the front desk two days into our vacation. We had planned to spend a day traveling around the island to see some of the charming villages. However, not long into our journey, the car broke down and we were left stranded by the road. Apart from it being quite a warm day, it was also very windy and it really was no fun at all. If it hadn’t been for the driver of a small delivery van who kindly gave us directions to where we could wait for a bus, we wouldn’t have known how to return to the hotel.
Back at the hotel, we were shocked to see that the receptionist and the manager were more concerned about the rental car and did not apologize or acknowledge the terrible situation we had experienced. We were not even offered any kind of discount on our stay or a free meal in the restaurant.
Two days later, we were even more taken aback when we were asked early in the morning to move rooms apparently because the hotel was preparing to close for the winter! We were very annoyed to say the least. I talked to the manager several times about the inconvenience we were suffering, but he insisted that nothing could be done.
Considering the cost of our stay which was also rather expensive for an off season booking, we expected a much better service and attitude from the staff and management. It goes without saying that we do not recommend anyone having a vacation at the Hotel………. And we’ll definitely not be visiting them again!

Dear Danierl,

We thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts regarding your recent stay with us. We appreciate all forms of guest feedback, and it is through constructive comments that we are able to improve.

We are very sorry about your bad experience with the rented car and the further inconvenience caused. Because of the early closure of the hotel due to unexpected cancellations, we have informed you on arrival about the change to another 5 star hotel for the last night. A free upgrade to a room with a Jacuzzi as well as a candlelit dinner was offered. On departure limo transfer to the airport was provided on our compliments.

Once again, we are sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations but look forward to taking steps to help rectify it. I welcome you to contact me by emailing vangelis@myconiancollection.gr so that we may discuss your experience and try to restore your confidence back.

Best regards,

Vangelis Daktylides
General Manager

What a brilliant hotel and we will be returning! The Management and team were fantastic. The owner is very charismatic and has a good sense of level of service as well as style. We were always recommended the good stylish buzzy restaurants to eat in in the evenings.

We had one of the new rooms which was stunning. Lots of space, gorgeous bathroom and very comfy bed. The terrace was perfect with loungers to sunbathe. The housekeeping team were very good.
The pool area was lovely and never too busy. The service around the pool was very attentive.

The gym was fine but I think it is moving and being redone.

Breakfast was delicious and evenings meals as you would expect from a R & C.

All in all completely brilliant! Stylish hotel with great level of service and professional team. We dithered between this and the Mykonos Grand, very pleased with our choice.
