“The best hotel, the best staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2011

My wife and I stayed at the Kivotos for five nights of our honeymoon. We could not have been happier, our stay was fantastic. Although we were advised to go to different beaches (beach clubs) day to day, we could hardly find a reason to leave this hotel. The beach, very small, has a few nooks, there is another level, a cliff over the beach, and a beautiful pool. In all, there are many nooks, many varied settings, nearly-private pairs of lounges, enough variety to keep us as happy as we could be just planting ourselves in various locations and enjoying the view, the water and the sun.

The staff was a notch above virtually any I have experienced at any luxury hotel. Elena, the Guest Services Manager, was so warm and accommodating, she made a lasting impression on us. The grounds are beautiful and worth seeing for the first visit, but Elena and the staff make us want to come back over and over again. I hardly know how to explain it because I have hardly ever felt so well taken-care of.

If I could do our honeymoon over again, I would come to Kivotos again. Beautiful, quirky and charming decor, wonderful staff, walking (or rowing) distance to Ornos beach. And great food to top it off.

Room Tip: Save up, Mykonos is an expensive destination.

Every little detail in Kivotos is so carefully attended that even if you really tried hard to find something wrong you couldn’t. Starting from the generous variety of the buffet breakfast which contained god knows how many different dishes (from homemade pies to like five different kinds of desserts) to the beautifully acquainted rooms or the great location right in front of the water. Our room, no.180 had a story to tell on its own..two bathrooms, one with Jacuzzi and one with shower, king size bed with very comfortable mattress, large living room and best of all…a walk in closet!! Try to find a walk in closet like this in a another hotel on the Greek Islands and I’ll give you 100 bucks!! Not to mention the view from the private veranda…Service was tentative and friendly right to the point and the property looked like it just one or two seasons back even though its 15 years plus life spam..Some beautiful white umbrellas were laid out by the main pool which together with the private cabanas made the whole scenery magical! Congratulations for the great job guys! Will certainly return soon!

This exquisite hotel, enriched with aretefacts ancient and modern, boasting delicous food, and with superb, friendly staff, is RUINED by their insistence on playing LOUD music by the pool and in the public areas from 11.00 for the rest of the day. Frequent polite requests to turn it off or turn it down were met with equally polite assurances that it was 'what the clients wanted.' NO. Everyone had ipods screwed in their ears to try and escape it. After all, in this day and age we all carry our own music this way and have no need to be force fed music of the hotel's choice, at such high volume. It completely spoiled the ambience. Heaven help you if you choose one of the poolside rooms or suites. It is not what one expects in a hotel of this otherwise very high standard.
The only place the music could not be heard was on the beach below the pool. Sadly this cramped space, with cobblestones embedded in concrete, was just too small for comfort. Chasing the sun or shade in this resticted area on a very unfriendly surface, was a tour de force.
On these grounds I could not recommend this hotel. Shame when Greece is crying out for our custom.

Room Tip: To escape the loud music, opt for a room at the back of the hotel, overlooking the bay and a field f...

Really enjoyed the private beach and the pool area, nice to be able to go back and forth. The son of the owner greeted us and was visible the entire time, involved and sincere.
Had a cool room called the BOAT ROOM, fun vibe to it. If you are into sleek and modern minimalism this is not the place for you. AMAZING BREAKFAST - better than Belvedere and Cavo (neither of which have beach access). If you want a romantic dinner, arrange to eat on their private dock, we did and it was unforgettable. We shall return.

Stayed there last week with my boyfriend and we had the best time of our lives! The room we got was truly amazing, big and airy with a direct view to the sea and a private balcony on which you could relax and enjoy your drink! The room had two bathrooms, one with shower and a second one with jacuzzi so we could take baths at the same time; something i really found unique. High tech facilities were also available in the room but of which we made no use as we wanted to enjoy our holidays there! Very friendly and professional staff, delicious breakfast, great location with direct access on a private beach and last but not least a private yacht with which we enjoyed a romantic cruise around Mykonos on one of the days we were there...something not too miss! We also run into a very famous celebrity while we were there who really seemed to enjoy a lot the privacy that the hotel was providing her!I highly recommend Kivotos!

If you really want to rest with great service and good food, this is your hotel. The great location and the beautiful view are simply excellent. The only remark is that the wi-fi is not good. This time it was missing the closer relation between the manager and the client. And something needs to be done about the noise coming through the entrance doors.
Recommended to everybody.
