My wife, two friends (a couple) and I stayed at Zephyros for a week in late September 2013 at one of the "apartment with jacuzzi" rooms.
Our experience was exquisite.
We were picked up at the port and transported by a friendly staff member (Antonio)who was very accommodating and candid.
As soon as we arrived, the receptionist and hotel owner walked out to welcome us (which is something we've never experienced before). Since it was too early to check in, they allowed us to leave our luggage in the lobby, invited us to some coffee and allowed us to use the pool until our room was ready.
The receptionist (Helen, just a complete sweetheart who would not stop smiling and doing everything in her power every day to satisfy any of our needs)came to the pool area to let us know the room was waiting for us after a short time.
The room was absolutely stunning. A pretty sizable apartment with two master bedrooms with their own tvs and ACs, two full bathrooms with gorgeous showers, a pretty decent kitchen (great for simple cooking) and a spacious living room with a couch. The apartment has also an outside table where we had dinner most days and a pool area with a private jacuzzi (not heated) surrounded by sun beds. Best, most gorgeous room we've ever stayed at.
This hotel offers free buffet breakfast with enough options to please anyone. Fresh food prepared daily that ranges from croissants and pastries to fresh fruit, cakes and savory crostinis.
We only had lunch at the hotel's restaurant a couple of times since we were trying to save money. Their prices are very reasonable (inexpensive even when compared to other establishments), and the food quality is superb. The menu is varied, very mediterranean and changes from day to day.
2 minutes walking down a slope there's Paranga Beach, which we deemed as the prettiest one from all those we visited (about 6 or 7). The vibe is relaxed, and there are a few establishments with food and drinks right at the beach.
7 to 10 minutes in a different direction there's Paradise beach, which is arguably the most famous beach in Mykonos.
Right at the hotel's entrance there is a bus stop that takes you to Mykonos town. We never used it because we rented quad bikes (probably the best option to see a lot of the island), but I gather it's another convenient feature of the hotel.
In comparison to other hotels in the area, and given what this hotel offers; we all agreed the room prices were anywhere from "fair" to "cheap". It felt like getting a Porsche for the price of a Fiat.
If we had the time and budget to take another vacation to Mykonos, we would absolutely stay at Zephyros. Once you stay there you will understand how it feels to be treated like family to such extent that the hotel will stay in your heart in the same place your own vacation home would be.
