Is this resort right for us?

Hi folks

Myself and other half (mid thirties) are contemplating Mykonos for June 2014.

We are drawn to some of the well-regarded and well-priced family-run hotels in Agios Ioannis such as Lithos and Bellissimo - but I wonder if the resort is a bit "out of the way" - but then we aren't party animals either!

Does the Agios Ioannis beach have loungers/parasols and if so does anyone know the price please.

Also it looks like there aren't many restaurants in Agios Ioannis - is this correct, and if so how easy is it to walk to somewhere like Ornos for meals out. We don't really want to be driving in the evenings so we can both enjoy a drink.

Also, can anyone give us any idea of cost of meals/drinks in Agios Ioannis , Ornos and M. Town?

Thanks in advance!

VegasShowgirl: Here's a link to my Flickr album of Agios Ioannis pics from 2012: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjDxqY13 The album includes several photos showing the main road through the resort area

My 2011 album has additional photos as well as some showing the beach access road that runs down the hill from the main road, passing Manoulas Beach Hotel en route: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjHFL68Q

This link will take you to photos of Ornos and the Ornos beach area: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjDG7YdW There are some photos showing the road to Agios Ioannis, and they'll give you a good idea of how narrow it is and how close pedestrians will come to passing traffic.

Donny b, I realise you are Canadian, but to us English a pavement is what you would call a sidewalk. As I was replying to another English lady, we will use our correct wording. I think you will also find the coating on the road is called Tarmac.

And over here, tarmac is the "pavement" at an airport!

The good news is that readers on either side of the pond will now understand what the road conditions are like between Ornos and Agios Ioannis!

Pool at Lithos is really small. For everything else Lithos is fantastic. I wouldnt worry about restaurants near the hotel, you are highly likely to take the bus to town in the evenings where there is a huge choice of restaurants. Busses go very frequently from Agios Ioannis. Taxi ride also not far nor very expensive.

We are thinking of booking Lithos for mid October for a 3 night, first time stay. We are past needing night life, a good meal and some wine and beer works for us.

Any idea if the bus schedule remain the same at that time of year??

Thanks~
