“Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

The best hotel in Mykonos. Beautiful views, amazing service, helpful and friendly staff. Hotel is very close to the Mykonos Airport. Breakfast is amazing and with many many choices. Rooms are very clean with great views. All the employees at the hotel are really welcoming, friendly and smiling all the time.

I was in this hotel for one week. These were one of the best holidays in my life! The hotel facilities are great, the staff friendly and attentive, and the food is simply wonderful. The pool and the beach are great. On leaving the hotel has a bus stop and in 2-3 minutes we are at the center of Mykonos. I can't wait to come back!

The hotel is situated in a hillside and the view is amazing. The infinity saltwater pool was a big plus, it was big and clean. The beach on the other hand was not so much to cheer for. It is a private beach but its very small and rocky. The beach and pool beds are included and you get to borrow a towel each day but you need to get up early to reserve them.

Because of the hotel location there is a lot of stairs which gives you great exercise if you have a room on the upper hill. The breakfast restaurant and the pool are situated in the lower parts of the hotel area and the reception and main road is situated on the upper level. The hotel offers free rides with a club car around the hotel if you like but be aware of long waiting time for this.

The biggest downside with this hotel which gave us a poor first impression was the reception staff which was not service minded at all. We had some problems with our room and when we explained that to them they did not seem to care at all and was very unfriendly. Also upon arrival we did not get any proper welcome and was just given a form to fill in all our credit information and thats it, no happy faces here. The restaurant and buggy staff was friendly though.

Be aware: They count every room as a balcony room even though some rooms have garden terraces which does not have as good view as balcony rooms and are situated in a basement basically.

Also the hotel is situated in a rather remote area with only one restaurant and one very small supermarket nearby. If you want to go to Mykonos Town though there was a bus stop pretty close to the hotel.

Overall this is a nice hotel with great location if you like a quiet and relaxing vacation. This is not a hotel suited for children. Its not a hotel for people who likes to go party and enjoy a nightlife either. Mainly because of the unfriendly staff I do not think we will come back again.

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room with a real balcony and not a garden terrace room. The terrace rooms are sit...

Thank you for your kind words about the stunning views of the island and our tranquil infinity pool. However, we are very sorry that you feel that you were not given a warm greeting upon your arrival, as our team is extremely friendly and welcoming!

With regards to your comments about balcony rooms, we always try to place our guests in our best possible rooms, although sometimes this is subject to the hotel’s occupancy at the time.

We also agree that our location is peaceful, but we do have a shuttle service which frequently runs into the vibrant town.

We would love for you to come back again.

Saint John is clearly one of the best hotels in Mykonos. Where to begin?

Advantages:

- First of all, the staff was amazing! From receptionists, to concierges, to drivers, the whole staff made us feel at home.
- Secondly, the hotel is huge, built on a steep hill and offering an exceptional sunset view. Try to be at the lobby at sunset to get the best view in the house. Trust me, even better than the pictures.
- Thirdly, the rooms are very clean, spacious, and comfy.
- The infinity pool is majestic!

Disadvantages:

-Steep stairs to get to the lobby, but there are mini van rides that facilitate life.
- Also, the beach is not very sandy and contained tiny rocks unlike other beaches in Mykonos.
- Thirdly, hotel is 20 minutes bus ride to the central downtown. Although the hotel offers free shuttles, the last one is at 12 am, which limits your time if you are into nightlife.

Overall, it was a very pleasant experience worth repeating :)

Room Tip: Rooms that are closer to the lobby, farther from the beach, have the best views.
