Our room was modern and well furnished, the bathroom was amazing(!). The hotel has a private beach which is lovely and suitable if you travel with children.The breakfast buffe was rich and with great variety.

Room Tip: Because the hotel is built in levels, if you have a problem with stairs and elevators, mention it wh...

Size and location, rare qualities on this crammed island, are the main highlights of this resort. It occupies a whole peninsula at the edge of Ornos bay and has a beautiful private beach with grey powdery sand, turqoise waters, cocoon chairs and a great beach bar. Service is impeccable and features many VIP facilities like a heliport. Unlike the rest of the bay, the resort is quiet and secluded. The only disappointment was room style; it could easily have more of an island character and a design edge. Having said that, it was comfortable, clean and the bathroom was imposing. Outdoor spaces also lack attention to design and detail, though the sea view, flowers and multiple pools make up for it. Recommended overall but a bit too pricey.

this is our first night in Greece. We love it. since this hotel is not in the town (only 5-7 euro by taxi), we can enjoy the peaceful environment and beautiful private beach. but, if you need something, there are some shops close to the hotel(only 5-10 min by walk). So, the location is perfect. Also, we can have a nice breakfast facing the sea. everything is just wonderful here

Our first trip to Mykonos was made pefect by the most beautiful hotel. I can't say anything except it was so beautiful. Everything was perfect. The staff were lovely and helpful. The room was fabulous, the beach was beautiful. Breakfast was amazing. Its also in a great spot. We hired a quad bike for 5 days so it was easy getting into the town but we really didn't need to go there except to shop. There is a lovely little bay just down the road from the hotel with quite a few excellent restaurants right on the beach. It was close enough to town but just far enough away to miss the crowds of the main town. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: We had a room just up from the beach. The views were great. It was quiet and just a short walk to...

My husband and I spent the first leg of our honeymoon in Mykonos; Santa Marina could not have been a better choice for such a special trip. It is, quite simply, breathtaking! We had some unfortunate hiccups getting here, so neither of us were in the best of moods (shuttle driver left without us and my luggage was lost for 36 hours...all of this on the heels of missing our first connection because of a mechanical problem so we had an unexpected overnight layover in London!). One step into the lobby and our grouchiness disappeared. Our suite is out of this world. Deck that overlooks breathtaking views, beautiful pools, delicious restaurants...what more could you ask for? The hotel closes in early October, so do yourself a favor and book your stay close to this time...the resort is quieter, the rates are lower, and you get fantastic service (since you aren't competing with anyone else). The resort is within walking distance from some cute restaurants and bars off of the property, and the gym is FANTASTIC. It's open 24 hours so you have plenty of time to work off the baklava, gyros, and greek yogurt. Really great breakfast on site (wonderful buffet complete with mimosas!). Stay at Santa Marina; you won't be sorry!

Room Tip: Stay at the end of September!

Recently went to Mykonos and had the pleasure of staying at the Santa Marina hotel. The property is gorgeous--very lush with greenery and flowers everywhere. Which is not usual for Mykonos. The hotel has 3 pools (1 children's pool) and a jacuzzi on property for swimming. Plus other decorative pools. The hotel also has access to a private beach with real sand--not rocks or pebbles. There is a beach bar that serves food and drinks and plays music. My husband and I rented a scooter one day to check out the other local beaches--Paradise, Super Paradise, etc. After driving around and checking out 6 other beaches, we drove back to the hotel because the beach there was nicer then the other ones we visited. The lounge chairs and umbrellas were free, as opposed to 12 euros and the sand was softer. The breakfast was the best that we had while in Greece. Besides the greek yogurt found at every hotel, there was also an array of sweets, crepes, cereals, egg dishes, prosciutto and cheeses. Plus champagne included! Definitely recommend staying there!

The hotel staff are very helpful, the hotel is provided with all amenities you'd ever need, two pools (one salt water, big size, good for proper work-out type of swim, and one fresh water with Jacuzzi, perfect for relaxation), well equipped jim, boutiques, hairdresser (with a very capable, friendly and accommodating professional, open till 10.00pm in the summer and 9.00pm from september), restaurants (2)and bars(2). THe private beach is a joy and a blessing if you try to have a little rest from the partying on all other beaches in Mykonos. Rooms are ok, nice enough, not stunning, compared to the gorgeous lobby ant the other facilities, but never the less offer pretty much a comfortable stay in a clean and nice environment.

Room Tip: ask for a renovated room
