“the worst experiance”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2006

Our experiance from this hotel was terrible. When we visit the website of the hotel, we saw several beautiful pictures and we booked. Unfortunatelly, what you see is not what you get and what you get is not worth what you are paying for. We were not staying at the main hotel, (which is nice), but to some appartments next to the hotel. When we arrived we found out that the bed linen was not that clear and we asked very polite to be changed. They changed it but the next morning the cleaning woman was very unpolite to us and told us that we should not complain etc. In the bathroom when we arrived there were one hair shiampoo and one for the body. Of course since we were two persons the second day we needed extra. They NEVER brought us extra. The last day we went to reception to pay. They asked how we would pay. The answer was with visa. "In that case" they told us "you will have an extra 3% charge unless you pay cash!!" SORRY, but in no place they warned their customers that the rates are differiantated according the way of payment. We are strongly do not reccoment this hotel.

I nearly stayed here on a package with Kosmar but was totally put off by the bad reviews. So we ended up flying schedule and finding our own accommodation. Whilst we were there I thought I would go and take a look at the Giannoulaki just to see what it really was like and these are my thoughts
Very pretty, nice little patio areas, All on different areas, wonderful pool, very clean, simple furnishings, no tackiness. There was a little church being hand painted inside right on the complex which was lovely. If I had gone on this holiday it would have cost me £340 for a week with accommodation and flight. Instead I paid £315 for the flight (not direct but via Athens) and £300 for our room making our holiday costs £615. I don't regret doing this as we stayed in the totally fabulous Rania Apartments in town but if you are on a budget the Giannoulaki is probably one of the nicest package deal apartments I have ever seen.
Downsides are: you are not in town for your evening entertainment so my advice would be to get a moped or one of these four wheeler scooters that look much safer. You are only 5 mins from the centre of town then and very close to all the beaches - I personally think it looked miserable waiting for busses and taxi's etc. there are no decent places to eat near the apartments you have to go into town. You are in the middle of nowhere but only 5 mins from all the busyness of Mykonos town and the beaches.
All in all it is well worth the money

I have just returned from a weeks stay at the Giannoulaki Village. I read the reviews before going so went with an open mind having travelled to the Greek Islands for the last 20 years and stayed on mykonos 5 times before. We found the accomodation spotlessly clean, very large and to a very high standard. We were in the new complex of studios so this may be why but apparantly the older studios by the pool are being done up this winter. The pool is spectacular and very clean. We found the family very helpful and they even ran us to a restaurant in the hotel minibus when we could not get a taxi, so if this is what others call rude and miserable then I have no problem with that!!! We were self catering so did not eat at the hotel apart from having breakfast on the last morning which was excellent. Our studios had a decent sized fridge and 2 cooker rings, all you need really when eating out is very reasonable. I can recommend 2 out of town restaurants, Blue Ginger Thai/Chinese is excellent and is advertised at the hotel. We went there twice and the owners Carol & Yiannis are very friendly. We also found a nice Italien in Ornos called Trattoria Soulatsis that has a great view and extremely nice food and good value. All in all I would definately go back and would recommend this hotel to anyone....Don`t take on board the other comments it seems there really is no pleasing some!!!

Absolutely fantastic. I agree with the comments regarding Libra and when we visit again we will book directly. As for comments about the owners being "bad" - absolute rubbish!! they are extremely friendly and welcoming!!

Having read the reviews i have to say I,m returning to the Giannoulaki in July 04 and very much looking forward to it...If it,s a beautiful pool,stunning veiw,and clean spacious apartments your looking for then its for you..In defence of the owners..they are very proud of what they have and want to maintain a high standard...to be fair..most of us staying there are Teletext junkies looking for a good deal..and i,m not sure you would find a much better one in Mykonos...if your looking for Sex in the pool,plate smashing greek nights,and Kareoke..FORGET IT..as was the case last year..with a lovely couple who decided trashing there apartment was part of the holiday experience..on that note anyone who,s going this summer..show a bit of respect for the owners and there hotel and you will have an amazing holiday

The Owners of this scruffy complex with a beautiful pool were the most rude and vile creatures i have ever had the misfortune to come across.
The rooms are dark, dank and smelly, the sheets are damp, and don't ever asked for clean towels as the husband gets all threatening. The floor was constantly awash with black hairs and cigarette ash (though we don't smoke). I can honestly say that this is THE WORST PLACE to stay in Mykonos and I should know as I have been there many, many, times and stayed at much better places. I really feel very strongly about this Hovel as usually I don't write reviews, but our Rep from Libra Holidays was so concerned for our personal safety from the drunken abusive husband that she wanted us to stay somewhere else on the last night of our holiday!
