Lovely people, very hospitable, rooms very pretty and comfortable. Breakfast one of the best and elaborate we had in Greece (the dark bread is absolutely devine, best bread we had in a long time).
Now the tricky part:
You must realize that Mykonos is among the most crowded of the islands and also the first island we visited that really showed it was a touristy place (littered, cars, scooters and quads everywhere, etc.). Young people with no experience driving scooters and quads racing along every road you travel.
Vana Holidays is located a few kilometers south of Mykonos town, it lies against a rock wall and the pool and hotel look out over a windy bay, where surfers do their thing all day long (lovely sight, btw). Every room has a porch overlooking the bay and every guest can enjoy an absolutely beautiful sunset every night; breathtaking really. Also very quiet area (hard to find in Mykonos).
It is very isolated and it is just possible (though not advisable) to walk to Ornos on the road (no sidewalks). This means you really need a form of transportation. We rented a car and drove everywhere, however the roads a often very steep and sometimes we had to turn off the AC to get enough power to climb a hill (most of the rental cars are small Pandas and Micras). And the road up the hotel is the steepest of all (with sharp turns) all the way to the Parking of the hotel . Let's say it is not for the fainthearted. My husband is an excellent, experienced driver and he was not happy driving up here.
So again, be warned about the location: lovely view, quiet, beautiful sunset, but also very hard to reach, isolated and driving is a challenge !
