“Friendly staff in great location”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

The staff were excellent. Very friendly and always ready to help.

Views from the hotel were excellent looking over the town. The walk to the town was only 5 to 10 minutes although the return trip up the hill was a little harder going.

The infinity pool was an great diversion and from the pool one could watch the old town and the ships entering the harbour.

The pictures don't lie, the view is tremendous. With that being said, I am fairly confident that every view on the island is breathtaking. The pictures the site post are of the top rooms, which look extravagant, the room we stayed in, not so much. If the polite lady at the front desk tells you your room # is 117, demand a change. The bed is squeaky, and firm, not good for a honeymoon. I have slept on better mattresses in college dorms. The furniture in the room hasn't been updated in likely 20+ years. The shower was nice, but the drain was clogged. The walls are thin, so you can hear people coming in at all times of the night. If this hotel room was in the States it would be a 1 star. I'm not being critical, just honest. The wifi doesnt work in the room, only in the common areas. Breakfast is fairly bland, so don't get your hopes up. We arrived to a couple ants in the shower. Another night we came back we had a dozen ants crawling on and around our bed. The lady asked if I had food in my room, yes a little, but I also had food in my room at the Ritz, and the other places we stayed at and never had an ant problem. The gentlemen at the front was nice enough to run to the store at midnight to pickup a bottle of ant spray for us. Other areas of concern were a neon light in the room that stayed on at all times. To remedy the problem, their staff provided a box to put over it. Really a 5 star resort is going to put an empty box of food over a light? The air condition unit is set to run only when the key is plugged in, meaning when you are gone the room is getting very hot. It was pretty miserable coming home from a long day in the sun to a hot room. PS, please tell the maid that leaving the windows open to let the air in doesn't cool off the room.
I would have given this 'resort' a 1 or 1.5 star, but the staff was nice and the pool was as advertised. The other hotels we stayed at on our honeymoon, all provided complimentary wine and champagne, this hotel didn't. The other hotels the cleaning staff spoke and were very kind and didnt just act like robots. I will say that the hotel was nice enough to let us check in early.

With that being said, if you want to fork over the extra money and get the room with the nice tv (not the 12 inch in our room) and the nice view, then go for it. If you end up in 117, you will get a beautiful view of a concrete courtyard facing a busy street with cars going by at all times of the night.

Mykonos is a beautiful island, and we really enjoyed our visit. Luckily, we didn't spend that much time in the room.

StelM, Reservations Department Manager at Vencia Hotel, responded to this review, July 26, 2012
Dear guests,

I would like to thank you for your feedback provided through your review.
Please kindly note the following remarks regarding your comments:

1) On our web site and all the different on line booking systems we show real photos of all our room categories. The room you have booked is a standard double garden view room and the view and the interior is clearly shown on the relevant photos. We don’t provide only photos of our superior rooms as you have mentioned but of all the rooms so the guests can compare the differences and at the end get what they have chosen.

2) Our hotel has been recently renovated and of course all our rooms have been recently refurbished. So your comment ‘The furniture in the room hasn't been updated in likely 20+ years’ doesn’t make any sense as the furniture is entirely new!

3) There is free WI-FI all around the public areas of the hotel There is no connection in the rooms and this is very well stated on our web site and on all the other on line booking sites. So our guests before they book they know in advance about the internet use and connection and they are not expecting to have internet access in the rooms.

4) The rooms are all cleaned and disinfected on daily basis. Your room is located on the ground floor close to the garden and it is very easy, if you leave food on the floor as you did, to attract few ants from outside especially when it is very hot! For this reason it is recommended to put the food in the fridge of the room so it doesn’t smell bad in the room. You wrote that you had left food also in other hotels like Ritz but please note that it is not the same if you leave food in the room of a city hotel on a high floor and if you leave food on the floor of a garden view room in Mykonos. After our housekeeping cleaned the food no other ants appeared in the room.

5) In all the rooms there is an emergency light according to our hotel’s safety policy. This ‘neon’ light you mentioned in your review is not a light of fun that we could switch it on and off any time. Actually it is not a strong light at all and it is obligatory to remain on as in case of emergency it will show the guests the exit in the dark in the middle of the night. It is not possible to switch off the emergency light and for this reason upon your request in order to make your sleep more comfortable we put a box on the top of it so it doesn’t disturb you. We just considered this solution temporary as you were complaining for the night. This doesn’t mean that in all the rooms we put paper boxes on the emergency lights and of course after you left the hotel we took away the box. As a 4 star hotel we are very concerned about the safety of our guests and we give attention to the safety and health policy.

6) To our guests who are on honeymoon we offer complimentary: A platter of fruits or a bottle of Greek wine or a delicious homemade desert and rose petal turndown service.

7)Our hotel is working on eco friendly strategies and for this reason the electricity and other appliances in the room like the air condition don’t operate when the room key is not plugged in. We apply this policy in our hotel as a way to save energy and protect our planet which is in danger. Keeping the electricity and the relevant appliances in the room on, while the guests are out of the room, means spending much energy for no reason at all. In fact there is no need to let the air conditioning working 24 hours a day to have a cool room. A room can be cool enough after few minutes a guest coming back to the room turns on the air conditioning. Our hotel tries in this way to contribute to the elimination of the phenomenon of the global warming and we will keep on finding new ways toward this direction

With kind regards
Stella Michael

Magnificent views from our room and it's proximity to the heart of Mykonos, made this hotel the perfect platform for adventures in the maze of alleys and streets throughout the town. Everything was just a short walk away. But remember to get a map before you head off. We had one and still got a little lost (but in a good way).

The best of the hotel is the view from the pool area. The rooms are beautifully decorated and I recommend to take the sea view. The location is very convenient, as you get in the center of Chora in no time. you need a car to get to the nice beaches on the island. Everything was perfect, only the beds are a bit hard and the bathroom a bit small, but it was not really a big thing. The breakfast was really nice and the prices in the restaurant are quite reasonable. Try Dimitri's Mojito on the pool bar! I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it 100%

We loved our stay at the Vencia Boutique. We were very comfortable, and our room looked over Myconos Bay, the town and the infinity pool. We stayed in the junior suite for five nights. The pool was most amazing, with an edge that appeared to merge with the sea beyond. The location was just five minutes out of town, and yet very quiet with an amazing view. Whenever we came back after a day at the beach, we were happy to be back and spent some of our days entirely there...swimming and eating in their beautiful restaurant. I would highly recommend this place...staff were very kind and helpful, too!!!

We stayed here for 1 night in a standard room.
The rooms are clean and beautifully furnished.
Stella was extremely helpful.
The pool was amazing and was a selling point for us!
Bed was a little hard but we found that in all hotels in Greece.
