My husband and I stayed here, I cannot recommend this hotel enough. The staff are so friendly including Nancy, Anastasia, Paris, Mila and Antony. They made us feel at home and made the stay extra special. The room was very clean with amazing furniture and deco. We will be staying here again soon! Tehreem & Kas

We have our holiday booked, flights, dog sitters, time off work etc etc etc and 4 weeks before they email us to say they aren't ready and will be closed. Obviously do not care a jot about clients. To be honest I didn't fancy it anyway as it looks so ungenuinely fake Greek, my girlfriend booked it and I cancelled the other family run hotel which is more my style. So beware they just want your money and Instagram photos. Poncey and totally ungenuine. The absolute opposite of the Greece I love..and have been going to the cyclades for over 30 years. About time trip adviser had minus points and couldnt post this without a one star rating. Disgusting.

Stunning hotel and the staff are amazing. Only a short taxi ride to the town. Perfectly placed. From arrival the staff were fabulous, Joanna looked after us at reception. For breakfast we were looked after by the amazing Anathasia (our adopted greek mother).

We absolutely loved our stay at Kensho. I’m pretty fussy as we travel quite a lot but this place exceeded expectations. When we arrived Christos, the manager, surprised us with a room upgrade which was a lovely surprise. The pool and seating areas are beautiful and so chic and well designed. It’s right in the heart of Ornos which is a beautiful little bay with great places to go, we totally loved it & can’t wait to return - hopefully soon! Thanks Christos & team

Beautiful hotel, we received an upgrade and the manager was so lovely and helpful! Highly recommend. Great pool area and scenic outlook over the ocean. Breakfast was also delicious and all the staff were friendly, particularly the man who helped with our luggage.

the perfect example of how hotels in mykonos take advantages of the tourists. 400 eur for a room facing a corridor without day light. How could this be rated as 5 stars? one month after I came back they still have to refund the deposit...

The hotel is generally very good - facilities are great, well-maintained/clean and as anticipated from a 5* hotel. The location is good - it is about a 10-15m drive from Mykonos town, or there is a bus that takes slightly longer, which leaves a 5 minute walk from the hotel. We benefited from one free shuttle (round trip) to Kensho's other hotel (Psarou), which is on a lovely beach. The standard of room relative to price point is extremely average given the location (not central Mykonos town) and when compared to other hotels of a similar standard. The bathroom is not separate and build into the room - i.e. the shower is part of the main room and the toilet is separated by a sliding door only. the room did, however, have a spacious outdoor area with hot tub. Where this hotel really lets itself down is the front desk/concierge service. The front desk staff spoke to us on a number of occasions with disdain, we had to frequently chase-up on updates to reservations we had requested, and there was zero interest shown in making any suggestions or generally trying to help. I do not expect to be spoken to in a snarling/dismissive tone at a hotel like this. With all that said, the waiting staff and porters were delightful. The breakfast was just above average for a hotel at this price point. Good selection and service. Poached eggs served bizarrely cold and witnessed another guest sending back twice. The lunch/dinner/snack menus are exorbitantly priced (e.g. €14 for a small bowl of crisps). Overall a good hotel, but missing attention to detail on service.

Amazing experience!!! I would not hesitate to recommend Kensho to anyone looking to have a luxurious hotel experience in the beautiful island of Mykonos. My sister and I have stayed at this hotel last month and a couple of years ago. Every time we visit Kensho, we have an outstanding experience. We stayed in the suite with a hot tub, which was very spacious. The hotel staff are beyond attentive, the food is incredible (shout out to Anna at breakfast for continuously providing great service), the hotel grounds are perfection. The location of the hotel is ideal, near to the town but also away from the hustle and bustle to allow for a restful night sleep. We will continuously stay at this hotel when visiting Mykonos.

I loved everything about this stunning hotel. The location is ideal - far enough from 24hour Mykonos town and all the clubbing hotspots to be a true oasis of calm, but close enough for you to access all of these at the drop of a hat, whenever you want and as much as your taxi budget will allow (this isn’t the hotel’s fault, it’s the reality of getting around Mykonos). The food is excellent. The service is exceptional - staff are professional, attentive, warm and friendly and go out of their way to ensure you are well looked after. Mila in customer relations, you’ve been amazing. Athanasia and all the restaurant staff, compliments on your service. My room was cool and spacious, had a wonderfully comfortable bed with cool pristine sheets and was immaculately cleaned every day. The massage I had in the spa was, to my surprise, one of the best massages I have every had.. Thank you Kensho Ornos. I will miss waking up to your Greek yoghurt and honey, smooth creamy cappuccino and warm greeting of the breakfast staff. I’ll miss the light shimmering off your small but beautifully designed pool; your inventive menu; late night cocktails on the terrace with chill sounds and beautiful romantic views. I can’t wait to return.
