We found this hotel when browsing online for our summer vacation. Upon our arrival, we were puzzled at the airport seeing all hotel vans taking passengers to their destination. We expected that we will soon see our van, but we did not! We were four adults and 3 children so we got a bit confused. As soon as we called the hotel, they came to pick us up. We discovered later that this is one of the two sons of the owner. He was very welcoming and nice.The whole family is involved in this business. The hotel location is not close to downtown, but it is very easy to take a bus from there, you just have to see the schedule hanged on the the board and got accustomed to it! The bus does not stop when in first passes infront the hotel, it goes up to pick up passengers from the other side. On its way back, it will definately stop and you can then go in a nice ride to down town. So the hotel location is not bad at all. Also if you can walk, it is possible to reach to St. Stefanon beach, a very nice place to be. It takes around 20 minutes walking towards the road up from Makis. You can also go there by bus. What I would like to highlight on is the family super hospitality. One can easily recognize that the hotel that every member of them is very much devoted to his work, The father and the sons handle the reception, booking and driving. The second son is taking care of the kitchen and the mother is in the restaurant always. I REALLY RESPECT THIS SPIRIT THAT NEVER STOPS WORKING AND CARES ABOUT EVERY CORNER OF THE PLACE. THEY WATCH THE HOTEL AND PUT THEIR HAND EVERYWHERE AS IF IT IS THEIR OWN HOUSE. Bravo! The food is very tasty and very much affordable and has a very good variety. What we did not like is the "basic" breakfast. They offer milk, coffee, one kind of juice, bread, yelow cheese, ham, tzaziki, eggs, butter, jam, honey and a small variety of home made cakes. No, tea, no fruits, no vegetables (which we like to see and eat as Lebanese) and no olives! But the food is fresh and heartly prepared! The architecture is typically Greek, The balconies view is to the new port, so one can enjoy seeing superb ferries stopping there everyday. From Makis you can walk few minutes to the NEW PORT and enjoy looking at the huge ships and take nice photos there.
The rooms are proper, equipped by ACs, they have clean sheets and towels. There is a fridge but no mini bar inside. There is no phone in the room. However, there is a wifi. Depending on the family size, you can either book a regular room or a studio. we had a safe in our room. There is a nice swimming pool there. In summary the place is clean, affordable, easy to move around, and very much hospitable. It left a nice memory for our vacation to Mykonos. WE CERTAINLY RECCOMEND IT. YOU WILL BE SATISFIED. Thank you Makis family!!! Houwayna and Antoine El Helou. Lebanon
