We stayed for two nights in 2010 and fell in love with the place so wanted to return for a full 10 night stay last August (2013). We booked in advance with a travel agent but changed our plans directly with the hotel as we added a visit to Santorini to the start and wanted to invite two sets of friends over for three days each so changed six of the ten nights to a two bedroom suite.
The hotel is absolutely stunning, the view unparalleled for a hotel so close to Mykonos town. The staff, food, service are top notch. The place is very romantic and so chilled.
Now for the cock-up. The day before our first two friends (a couple) joined us we called in to reception to check on the arrangements for our friends’ visit and they said there was no booking for us to upgrade to the two bed suite; they only had one booking for when our next set of friends were coming in three days’ time. Our arrangements were complicated but we had all the emails to confirm what had been communicated to their booking team.
This caused a real stress to us and their solution was to put our friends up in a sister hotel, the new Mykonos Ammos in the next bay. Needless to say our friends weren’t happy as we had all wanted to stay together and enjoy the hotel.
Maria, the manager, apologised but we were let down by the Bill and Coo.
It was a shame because everything else would have been perfect!
One other issue is about the hotel’s location – clearly not the fault of the hotel but to walk into town you have to walk the road that circles the bay. There aren’t any pavements so it involves a rather hairy walk on the road with mopeds, cars and quads speeding by. Ok during the day but we dreaded it at night. Also, the first place you arrive when in town in the bus station square which is like a mini Magaluf in Mykonos – vile… full of young back packers and club touts… busy, smelly and hectic. Once you get past this, you are back in the gorgeous little and high end alleys and streets. With the road and square to deal with each evening, it did feel like we were running the gauntlet… not a great start and provided an embarrassing first glimpse of the town for our friends who were Mykonos virgins
All in all, a wonderful and memorable holiday and you cannot go far wrong staying here (I think it is probably the most expensive accommodation on the island though!). Lastly, the clientele was primarily straight couples and families in their 40s upwards so a teeny bit older for us.
