Vanilla Hotel
Ranked #17 of 22 Hotels in Ornos
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Hotel is well located for all the restaurants and beaches within Ornos. A nice pool area, rooms are very clean, but beds need to be improved. Every night the power goes off and a safety light comes on which disturbs sleep. No standby generator in the hotel!! Very poor considering the price.
Breakfast also very disappointing, tinned peaches, tinned mushrooms and poor scrambled eggs and luke warm coffee!! The owner should consider working with the local patisserie to offer croissant, pastries, fresh yogurt and fresh fruit. Also, invest in a good coffee machine.

....we didnt even bother having breakfast as the location of the restaurant is better described as a view of a stone wall with extreme heat due to the overlying plastic, carbon like roofing.
The rooms are very small, the bathroom is perfect if you are a dwarf but not if you are an average size person.
The staff is by no means of professional neither friendly acumen, i really wonder why a customer needs to wake up daily at 7.30 because the cleaning service apart from cleaning have the laugh of their life outside rooms of sleeping people. In short if it wasnt for the beauties of Mykonos....

Breakfast is below average, and no king size bed! (two twins tied togehter)

Hotel staff is very friendly.

'Parkward' review covered all my main points perfectly. However I felt that the interaction from the friendly management team tipped my experience to a 5 out of 5. I had an issue with a hire car and they dealt with it all on my behalf, their English is perfect and also we shared travel stories with them and their journeys and experiences to Thailand.

Would recommend the Vanilla hotel in a heart beat having stayed in Ornos on two other occasions. Beach towels are supplied free of charge - so you don't have to carry from UK adding extra weight to your baggage allowance. Pool side rooms are idyllic and romantic.

July 2012 and Mykonos doesn't appear to have been affected by the recession! Still as busy as ever in the town, prices do not seem to have increased in terms of eating/drinking while out and about.

Room Tip: If you want privacy away from the pool in a quiet courtyard choose room 32,33,34 - There are probabl...

Very much enjoyed stay at hotel vanilla. Decorated in modern colours it was a very pleasant setting, around five minutes walk from the beach. Hotel had its own pool with jacquzzi. Some rooms are around the pool, some like ours are at the front. Rooms have fridge and aircon. Good size, but bathrooms quite small, but in good order. Staff very friendly and helpful always willing to help. Good breakfast each morning with bread meat and cheese, but also scrambled egg, sausage and mushroom. Rooms cleaned each day. Would recommend this hotel, would have given 5 but bathrooms were a little cramped.

We stayed here Mid May 2012. Very lovely little hotel! Relatively basic accommodation, but newly painted, well decorated and very clean with airconditioning included. Safe in the room also. The cleaners do a great job and tidy and change towels every day! Pick a pool view room.
Beautiful pool and sunlounge area. Breakfast can be eaten inside or out. Lovely Ornos beach a 3 min walk away at most, and supermarket & bakery even closer.
Lovely people run Hotel Vanilla; Jenny was super friendly and made our stay all the more wonderful.


Top Tips:
Restaurant Konstantis on Ornos beach was lovely - great food.
Hire a little car for the day (€35 + fuel) to explore the island and beaches at the north of the island - stunning! Yannis sorted this for us and it was delivered to us after breakfast!!
Visit Mykonos town with its idilic winding streets, Little Venice and windmills.
Catch a boat to ruins on the neighbouring island for the day.

We stayed at the Vanilla early in May 2012. It is a really lovely hotel. The decor is charming. It is kept spotless by the friendly staff, sheets and towels were changed every day. The pool and jacuzzi is ideal for lounging around both by day and in the evening.
I will be recommending this hotel to all my friend. It was a real find.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms overlook the pool. We had rooms on the ground floor of the main building, but wou...
