Evidently, the perception of beauty, elegance, service and noise is extremely individual.
When saying so, I am referring to a recent review posted by a male writer living in what one may call a not-so-peaceful city; New York. When reading his review, I am not sure we have stayed at the same hotel - but ironically enough; we have actually been at the same hotel - only a few days apart. So - this is our encounter with Bill & Coo;
On arrival we were warmly greeted by Maria and the most forthcoming staff at Bill & Coo. As we checked in a little early, we were served refreshments and offered to change downstairs so we could enjoy the pool, the wonderful double sunbeds and the relaxing background music and the other facilities until our suite was ready.
We found the suite to very spacious, most delicately decorated, well kept and in a very good and modern condition. The beds were very comfortable! Large balcony with a lovely view over the sea and the sunset.
There was only one suite between ours and the bar/poolarea, but we never experienced any noise from the music or the pool, neither daytime nor nighttime. There was music, but it was low and tranquil. We did however go into Mykonos town both at daytime and nighttime, and we soon discovered where the noise and nightclubs were! Going in Chora late evening - then you can start moaning about loud music 24/7. And yet - is New York less noisy?
Anyhow, the nightclubs are not our cup of tea - so we enjoyed the peacefulness of the hotel - being ever so happy that the hotel is located some 5-10 minutes walk away from town.
We really enjoyed our stay at Bill & Coo - much thanks to the eminent staff taking so good care of us, always with with a smile. Being it the maids, the well trained waiters/pool staff, or the very attentive reception staff. They assisted us in renting ATV´s, equipping us with a mobile phone with a direct connection to the hotel in case of any queries or needs of assistance. Which proved to be very helpful when we encountered a technical problem with one of the ATV´s on our journey around the island. Problem solved in 20 minutes!
When we were scheduled to leave with the ferry to Santorini, we had booked transportation from the hotel. We were just having lunch before we were supposed to leave, when the receptionist informed us that the boat was delayed - and that it would be better for us to wait at the hotel - rather than on the port. He had already informed the driver of our delayed departure. Just another example of how attentive they are.
The only downsides we could find, was that we had to ask for an extra set of towels as we were three persons and there only were towels for two - and that a drying rack for swimwear and three chairs would have been nice for the balcony.
As for value; well, you do get value for money - but it is a bit too expensive, even for august. Our driver recommended us to come back either in april/may or september/october when the prices are lower and horrendous crowds are gone. Good advice!
