Magic

As our little tradition we visit Mykonos every summer for couple of days.
This year it wasn’t different. After our stay in Santorini we have arrived to Mykonos and for the first time we stayed in Venica hotel ,recommended by our friends.
Unique position, friendly and professional staff, great cousin, beautiful rooms ,clean and magnificent pool were beyond our imagination.
Everything you need for perfect vacation either you are there for parting, romance or relaxation u can find in Vencia.

Just 10-15’ walking distance from Chora ( Mykonos town) , 20’driving distance from the airport and 10’from the NEW PORT.

We had spent most of the time at the pool area, drinking cocktails and enjoying magnificent view and tasting delicious specialties from Vencia’s cousin.
Rooms are clean and specious, staff always friendly and ready to accommodate any of your requests.
Vencia has become our favorite place in Mykonos and we will be back next summer for sure.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Vencia. We have been to Greece numerous times before but this was our first visit to Mykonos. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful in providing recommendations to sites and locations on the island. It was easy to communicate with the staff and did not feel like there was a language-barrier. The pool is absolutely more stunning in real-life as compared to the photos and definitely a highlight of our stay. The food at the hotel was delicious as well. Overall, a place I would definitely revisit on our next trip to Greece!

The hotel has a beautiful view and amazing infinity pool. The atmosphere is friendly and family oriented and I felt pampered upon arrival. The food is delicious and the staff is helpful and pleasant. Definitely a must for anyone visiting Mykonos. If I ever go back I will definitely stay there again .

We stayed at vencia hotel for 3 nights, loved it and had absolutely no regrets. Stayed in a superior double room with seaview facing. We loved the room, quiet, spacious with cosy decor. The hosts were very approachable, always ready to recommend good food and sights. It's only a short walk from town. Buffet breakfast and the fantastic dinner were one of the highlights, esp when the view from the dining place is amazing. Definitely a great place to relax, watch sunset and appreciate the unique beauty of mykonos!

As part of our honeymoon in Greece, we visited the fantastic island of Mykonos for three days. We stayed in a junior suite at the family-owned Vencia hotel, overlooking the infinity pool and the Aegean sea. It was very romantic for us to just sit on our balcony at night and look into the distance at the cruise ships far away and the quiet lit-up pool area. Occasionally, we would hear cars/motorcycles driving up the hill 30 feet away but it never bothered us.

Vencia was the perfect place for our honeymoon. It is close enough to Mykonos Town and yet far away from the hustle bustle of the main area. We were able to maintain our privacy and enjoyed the peace and quietness. The staff/family was fantastic and very helpful in meeting EVERY guest's needs. We got a ride from Tony the moment we stepped onto the island via ferry and he drove up the small hill to the hotel. Stella was great in giving travel advice at the desk. The hotel restaurant stays open until late (around 11PM) and there were quite a few times when we were hungry and had to order food at 10:55pm, and the wonderful people there were more happy to cook us up some late night yummy grub!

The pool was very large, although the water was cold. We were able to lie around the pool for a great sun tan without much problems. The hotel provides pool towels (from the restaurant area) that are great for lounging and suntanning.

Since it was already October, it is "down season" in Mykonos, but the island and the hotel are still filled with visitors. I wonder how busy the Greek isles are during the summer months and don't know if I want to find out!! October is a perfect time to visit IMO. The temperature was warm, with a light breeze at night, but very comfortable.

The complementary breakfast was great and delicious. It filled our stomachs before we venture out to explore the riches of Mykonos. The beaches were fantastic, and the sunshine was great even in October. We took a dingy from Platys Gialos to several of the nearby beaches in the southern coast of the island and settled on Superparadise beach. It was quiet and private at that time of the year, which is just fine for us honeymooners!! It was as if we had our OWN private beach.

We rented a 4x4 ATV to drive around the island for fun. It was inexpensive and interesting. However, keep in mind that Mykonos Town (the old touristy area) is not accessible by motor vehicles, so you have to park your cars/bikes/mopeds/ATVs outside the Mykonos Town and walk through the small traditional paths into town.

My husband and I stayed at the Vencia for 3 nights out of our 9 night Greek honeymoon. The Vencia was amazing. We were impressed with everything! The cleanliness was impeccable. The grounds were beautiful with amazing views overlooking Mykonos Town. The breakfast was great (buffet style) and served in a beautiful setting. We also ordered a few meals from their full-service in-house restaurant during our stay and were very impressed with everything we tried. The staff is very friendly and warm...speak great english and made us feel so welcome. They were happy to give us directions to anywhere we needed to go and also offered to arrange for our quad rental and Delos excursion. The room we stayed in was very spacious with a great balcony and updated bathroom. Someone obviously took great care in deciding on the furniture and decor of the Vencia. The only small negative I can think of was the bed was a bit firm for my taste, but I would also add that anyone who is considering staying at the Vencia will NOT be disappointed. Thank you Stella, Anthony, Yannis and Akies for a wonderful time! If we are ever lucky enough to return to Mykonos we would love to stay at the Vencia again!

Also- be aware that the Vencia sits above Mykonos Town, so it is about a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel to the harbor and this includes steps. It is not too strenuous, but you will breathe a little harder and may have to take a break half way up the stairs if you are anything like me!

i cant believe i forgot to write a review on the vencia when i came back from our vacation in the summer!
We are greek ourselves and are seasoned travellers to many of the islands but this was our first time on mykonos.
the hotel vencia is approx 10 minutes taxi from the airport.
on arrival we were greeted with a genuine welcoming face from stella where we were informed about the facilities and any info we might require.
our room had a beautiful view of the town and was spotlessly clean( i am OCD with cleanliness !!!)
BIBI the waitress always greeted us with a smile at breakfast and we used the hotel shuttle to the beaches.
many of the reviews mention the dreaded "walk".
My wife and I are late thirties and me forty so no spring chickens! however the 10 minute walk down and fifteen minute walk up! became an event and part of our holiday. infact we didnt feel guilty gorging on the excellent food in town as we knew we would work it off with our ascent back to the vencia!
ok food.... for a cheap but excellent fast food....forget the much hyped jimmys kebabs but try sakis (just as u desend the steps into mykons)
for taverna food try nikos tavern but even better joannas nikos tavern ( a five minute walk from mykonos town)
for a treat try one of the reataurants by hotel philiipi
forget nammos unless you are into pretenciosness!
i am ashamed to say that most greeks still use "its not what you know but who you know "policy; so if your a greek celebrity the red carpet will be laid out for you in such establishments like nammos. for us mere mortals you either need to plead or flash some cash to get a table that is not in the toilets somewhere...not my style...!
however dont let me put you off..try it, things might be different out of season.
the best beach for us was paranga ( a little posey but not too much) and ornos for a more sedate laze.
back to the vencia.... we would definately return and would like to thank all the staff from housekeeping to management for a wonderful experience.
