It is not often in life that you go to a hotel where you are already thinking of booking your next trip to the hotel and Mykonos as you are being checked in, but Alkyon Hotel is the place this will happen.
This is the second time I have been lucky enough to stay at the Alkyon Hotel and as ever I am taken back by the level of welcome and service that Sophia and her team provide when staying at the hotel.
It is a place where you feel you are staying with dear friends and not just paying for a room in a hotel.
From the moment you enter the hotel and are welcomed by Sophia to your first view of Mykonos Town from the balcony this hotel will always be with you.
The rooms in the hotel are all big and roomy with all the luxuries you need and unusually for Mykonos Town have a full size bath.
I was lucky enough to have a sea view room with a terrace looking straight over the wonderful view of Mykonos Town.
The pool area is an oasis of calm with padded sun-loungers to relax on and a pool that is refreshing cool to dive into when the heat of the sun gets to much.
The lounge of the hotel in my opinion is an underused area of the hotel by guests as it is a fantastic place to watch the Mykonian sunset on comfortable sofas with a bar on hand and is the perfect way to relax at the end of the day before enjoying the nightlife Mykonos Town has to offer.
The only grip I have ever heard about the Alkyon Hotel is the walk to and from the hotel to Mykonos Town but let me reassure you after completing this journey over 20 times it is not long or difficult as the walk, going down into town takes under 5 mins and is not strenuous and the return walk takes 10 mins which is only ever difficult in the midday sun.
Having said that the calories burnt on the route are a perfect way to burn off the calories put on from the hotel's ample breakfast lol.
If you are ever lucky enough to visit the island of Mykonos you will fall under it's spell and allure and want to return and the same is true with the Alkyon Hotel.
i look forward to returning in the near future.
