Myconian Villa Collection is a relatively new hotel (less than a year old) on a hill next to Elia beach. The hotel itself is beautiful, but a few things disappointed us.
The pool area is excellent as it has beautiful views of the surrounding area. When we got there by 1 pm, all deck chairs were taken. Moreover, there weren't any more clean towels left. For a 5-star hotel that is simply unacceptable.
So instead, we walked down to Elia beach to get our sun and beach fix. Unfortunately, Elia beach made us feel like sardines in a can. Thousands of tourists right next to one another. No space and no privacy. Though the water is see through and the beach itself is alright. Elia beach is not a hot spot for partying, so you have to get into a car and drive 30 minutes to go to the party places.
The standard room has a tiny teeny weeny bathroom. Awful.
We ordered a king-size bed, but got 2 double-beds standing next to one another. That's not king-size, people. Awful.
The walls are rather thin. We enjoyed the lovemaking of an 'alternative' couple next door at 3 am in the morning. Thanks for that.
Service at breakfast was really poor. Inattentive and very reactive, we often had to wait 15 minutes to get juice and coffee. Don't bother asking for a refill as that would take too long. Good food quality though.
The hotel is a good 30 minute drive away from Myconos Town. As there are only 32 taxis on the island, you pretty much have to bite the bullet and rent a car. But driving at night is not exactly that easy, and Myconos is a bit of a maze.
Overall I have mixed feelings about this hotel and the island. I'd recommend visitors to skip Myconos and go to Santorini instead.
