On arriving at Mykomos airport, we had to wait a while for the Transfer to the Hotel, but once on our way the journey was very short.
We had help with our suitcases, much needed as the hotel is on a slope. We were given, we think one of their best rooms, we booked a deluxe Jacuzzi twin, bed and breakfast, the balcony was very big, the room furniture quite basic and the shower was not very powerful but it did the job. The Jacuzzi was broken, so the hotel offered us half board as compensation, which was very good of them. Beds were comfortable, cleaned every day, Beach towels are provided by the hotel, so no need to pack one. The pool area is quite quiet, the pool was so warm, very clean, only a certain number of sun loungers around the pool, not enough if everyone wanted to chill there. They do not seem to have bar service around the pool, or food, this would earn them much more if they did, there is a bar but it is empty and you have to go to the inside bar to order drinks. Many holiday makers said they would have bought more drinks and bought food if it was available by the pool. All the staff at the reception area, were very very helpful, and the ladies very beautiful.
I have dietary requirements due to health and allergies, the breakfast staff were very helpful in assisting me with my food, they even made fresh smoothies for me, thank you all.
Dinner was a little more challenging as there was not always fish available, the portions are very very large, a starter looks light a large main course. The waiter did at times have "Basil Faulty" traits, which was amusing, especially if certain food was off the menu, but overall they tried there best to come up with a dish I could eat. Room service is available too, so if you have a balcony with such a beautiful view of the sea then you have to do room service at least once. They do need some hanging facility on the balcony to dry off swimwear and beach towels.
The local beach is a couple of minutes walk across the road and down the hill, it is more rocky than sandy, the sea is hard to get into in some areas due to slippery rocks but there are sandbags in one area to walk on the get past these. Lovely sun loungers, at a price of course but work paying if you are chilling all day. Hippie fish is the restaurant on the beach, you can eat and/or drink day and night there, it is lovely. We travelled to most of the beaches on the island, there is something for everyone, For the Gay, young, loud and roundy crowd, Super Paradise and Paradise, for seclusion the beaches North of the island, we loved Panormas, as it had very large cushions as sun loungers, umbrellas and a table, which you do not pay for if you order drinks and or food, plus the waiting staff, male and female are very hot, eye candy for everyone.
there are not many restaurants to eat locally without renting a car/quad/bike, Mykonos town is about 4K away, worth a visit. The streets are full of delightful shops, bars, cafes, etc, too much to see in one night so worth arranging travel for minimum of 3 days. There is a Pelican, yes a Pelican that walks the streets of Mykonos, famous for it, he appears in some of the small restaurants, amazing sight. there are lots of wild cats on the island, they do seem to look after their cats, but unfortunately many get run over from the busy roads :( We saw some adorable kittens with their mother at the local mini market.
A very relaxing holiday with my best friend, but this is also a great hotel for couples as set in a romantic location. Mykonos town is very Gay, which was great for me as I am married so had no unwanted male attention. Different months brings differrent types of people. Must take my husband there now.
