While we didn't stay in this property, we did have a wonderful experience with its staff. We had spent the morning in Mykonos Town and were trying desperately to get back to our hotel and then to Nammos for our lunch reservation. As you will quickly learn if you visit Mykonos, there are only 20 some odd taxis on the entire island. After spending nearly 30 minutes trying to hail a cab we decided to start walking to see if we could get a hotel to call a taxi for us.
The first hotel that we came across was Ilio Maris (which tells you how great the location is for Mykonos Town). The woman at the front desk was so incredibly nice and helpful. She agreed to call us a taxi and then absolutely insisted that we sit in the lobby and relax while we waited. We were so ancy to get back to our reservation, and she tried for at least 20 minutes to call us a taxi (keep in mind we were not hotel guests). We were so grateful for her help and generosity. We were offered water, juice, and seats by the pool to relax while we waited. I just couldn't believe how nice the staff was.
Once the staff realized that getting a taxi was going to be impossible at that time of day, they offered us their private driver and car to take us across the island to our reservation. Plus, she called Nammos to tell them that we were running late so they would hold our reservation. We made it just a few minutes late and had a great time all thanks to the kindness of the Ilio Maris staff. Thank you for helping us out even when we weren't your guests! I'm certain their hotel guests get even more spectacular service.
