I've been to Mykonos in the past (a decade ago) and stayed in budget accommodation like Pension Marina. It suited my 'looking for a party on a budget mentality at the time where staying somewhere clean, safe and central with nothing but a ceiling fan was good!
Then I holidayed again 5 years later and stayed at Nazos (which suited my budget and needs at the time- I was single, travelling alone and wanted to stay somewhere safe, clean and close to town, and i could affort airconditioning! Location was perfect in my opinion and I couldn't fault a thing!
Now I'm a bit older, can afford something nicer and no longer single. Am not looking for 5 star or luxury, but a place that is clean, refreshing and inspiring where attention to detail is important (be it simple). Staying close to town is my preference...a pool is not needed, i plan on getting to my fav beaches! please help! The more time I spend searching on the net the more confused I get. My dates are mid July.
