“A nice apartment but situated at an isolated area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

I stayed in the luxury split leveled apartment in this guest house for 2 days with my husband in Sep, 2013. The apartment was spacious with modern design. The hosts were nice and offered us free transportation to and from ferry port and airport. However, one shouldn't choose this guest house if you don't have a driving license. The description from the guest house said that it was 150 meters from the bus stop. However, it takes about 15 minutes to walk upward in order to reach the bus stop, and the distance is absolutely much more than 150 meters. In addition, the bus to city center runs hourly with irregular time of arrival to the bus stop. That's really inconvenient to live in there if you need to rely on public transportation.
Apart from that, the guest house is absolutely far away from the Paraga Beach. One shouldn't expect to see the Paraga Beach from the balcony as they described in website, but will see a countryside like surrounding only.

Having travelled many years to the island we have chosen Almyra Guest Houses for our vacation this year.
This was the best choice we've made and we regret that we did not stay there before! From our arrival until departure we were looked after in a way we never experienced before staying at a hotel. The owners, Parthena and Takis - wonderful people - are ever so helpful and kind. Nothing was too much for them and they made our stay an unforgettable one!

The rooms are individually furnished well equipped and well sized. Each of them has a small veranda and the view down to the bay of Paraga is stunning.
We stayed there for 3 weeks and we will be back next year for sure!

This is a hidden treasure one we strongly recommend to anybody who aprreciates this kind of accommodation.

Room Tip: No matter which room you choose - you will like them. There are different sizes to choose from.

Stayed at Almyra guest houses as a couple late August 2013. We were given a very good deal on the room which was on the upper level with a lovely private terrace looking towards the sea. The rooms are simply yet beautifully decorated and ours had the option of both a shower and bath. Kitchen utensils, oven and coffee making facilities were available and we spent more than one evening just relaxing on the terrace. As the units have been disigned and decorated to please aesthetically the only problem I had was lack of cupboard space and surfaces upon which to place things but this was over-ridden by the ambience of the room.
For anyone wanting a quiet place to stay which is also quite centrally located between town, beaches etc the Almyra is a great choice. Best of all is the hosts!!! Real Greek hospitality!

We decided to treat ourselves in Mykonos. We decided upon Almyra and were not disappointed. The service was unbelievable and very much appreciated. Lovely people, we were very much looked after. The location is perfect to enjoy the best of Mykonos. Secluded with a private balcony and a beautiful view. A 5min walk to Platys Gialos which is a stunning beach, a 5min walk to Paraga Beach for music and bars, and then about a 15min walk to Paradise Beach for the party scene. This suited us perfectly and was the best of both worlds. Nice to be close to the party beaches but even better to have our own little retreat. The houses themselves are fully self contained, with AC. Clean and practical. We will recommend Almyra to our family and friends and will be back! Thanks so much to our hosts.

I stayed in Almyra guest houses in June 2013. Very nice new apartments, very well take care! With a lot of "gusto". Very nice terrace with great view!
Hosts Parthena, Takis and the cousin are amazing! Very friendly, very helpful and very hospitable, always smiling!
They also offer transit from/to port/airport or to rent a car store.
For someone that wants to avoid staying in the chora it's a very nice option. Our group (8 people) all were very happy!

Almyra Guest Houses offer excellent quality accommodation . I booked a spacious ground floor unit approx 50 m2 with an outdoor patio. The apartments are new , with beautiful finishes and tastefully decorated. My apartment consisted of a living room , kitchenette, 2 bathrooms, and a bedroom (airconditioned). If a comfortable spacious apartment with peaceful surroundings is what you are after , Almyra Guest Houses is just the place for you . The owners are always on hand to assist with anything you might need and very friendly and accommodating .
I would suggest you hire a car as its not so accessible to regular buses into Mykonos town . However its close to Paraga Beach with a stunning restaurant Nikolas and Kalua Beach Bar/Club and only 10 minute walk to Plati Gialos .
Highly recommended !!!

Room Tip: The maisonettes and larger ground floor units are worth the extra !! Especially if you are staying f...
