“Our 7 nights / 8 days stay at this truly leading Resort hotel in Elia, Mykonos, Greece ( LHW no. 10 ).”
Reviewed 7 October 2009

After our overnight stay at the superb Sofitel Athens Airport - see our Tripadvisor Profile for our review and photos - we have flown the following day with Aegean Airlines to the Island of Mykonos, which lies 35 min. flying time from the greek capital. After arriving at the compact Mykonos Airport and fetching our luggage refreshingly fast, we had been welcomed to the island by an Royal Myconian Hotel ( One of the Leading Hotels of the World ) representant who has taken our luggage to the waiting complimentary Range Rover ( model Vogue ) transfer to this stunning hotel by the sea located in Elia direct on the beach. The transfer was a scenic 25 minutes of driving pleasure. We were more than ready for our 8 day / 7 night stay here. The check-in was fast, friendly and efficient in the vast fully marbled lobby plus we had the choice of three different rooms to choose from. We decided us for room no. 208, ( After we had seen all three choices on offer ). We had been given on the first evening a bottle of free greek red wine and fruits. Our luggage arrived promptly, Folks and we were on holiday in no time. Our views had been awesome to say the least incl. sea view, pool view and mountain views at the same time from two different balconies, which came all fully furnished plus our own Jacuzzi and Parasols. Our room had the following beautiful details incl. large king-size bed, white linen, pillows, thrower, resort-style furnishing in light brown wood plus mirrors and light fabrics upholsteries. We also had air-conditioning, fully tiled floors, two upholstered chairs, coffee table, CD player by Philips, TV came also from Philips with CNN, Bloomberg TV, BBC World, greek channels incl. Alpha, ANT 1, Star and many others on offer. The Mini-Bar was semi-stocked, but can be fully stocked with extra items upon request. ( So there is much space for your own drinks ). There was also art on the wall, payable WI-FI Internet ( best reception was in the lobby area ) access was on offer for 6 Euros - 5 UK£ - 9 US$ - for 120 minutes and we had daily turn-down service in the evenings - this was only to refresh or fill up on bath amenities however / no free water was provided at turndown. The wardrobe space was large and offered several compartments, a safe, laundry service sheets, 24 hangers and lots of space for clothing and things you and we might need. The Wake-up call can be ordered via automatic timer or personalized calling from the reception. This service was interesting and different! Our bathroom was medium in size and had a combined shower/bathtub combination on offer plus the toilet with bidet function, many towels, massive choice of beauty amenity products incl. Olivia of Greece, Korres Athens, Molton Brown from England and The Myconian Collection own-branded products all came with shampoos, bath gel, bath salt, body lotions, perfume wipes, anti midges wipes and on and on was the choice on offer! The bathroom had the same tiling as the bedroom floor by the way - so it was perfectly matched as well. Daily breakfast is served at the Main Restaurant between 7.30 am until 10.30 am ( one floor below the lobby with sea views ) and was very large and included many greek items, international specialities plus all the usual favourites on offer! One of us ( she ) enjoyed especially the greek village sausage and feta cheese for example! While the other one ( he ) enjoyed the freshly made waffles with greek cherry compote in heavy syrup served with the big spoon. Naturally the coffee was strong and never ending literally - the same with the freshly squeezed orange juice which would always be topped up by the rather very friendly waiter or waitress incl. Giorgios! We also enjoyed during lunch time the Pool Terrace and Restaurant which was always quite busy during day time hours incl. omlette with feta cheese and tomatoes, pita with chicken, Haloumi cheese and onions, banana split plus ice tea and much more. Also one of our sweet favourites were the greek dumplings served with thyme honey and sesame. In the Evenings we enjoyed the choices incl. room service - which delivers Dinner from 20.00 pm until 23.30 pm - incl, Souvlaki Botsaris style plus Seafood Souvlaki and Meltemi greek red wine plus Milkshakes. Sometimes we also had cocktails at the Lobby Bar Terrace incl. Pina Colada and Hawaiian Tropical with Champagne and a strawberry accompanied by a load of peanuts. The catering can be described as very very good from casual to upper upscale incl. lobster by the kilo was on offer and how about a glass of JW blue label? For our Dinners we paid always incl. wine, water, main meal, dessert and orange juice for two around 90 Euros / 83 UK£ / 125 US$ incl. service, VAT and tip. This represented good value because of the very good a la carte quality of the meals in all outlets enjoyed by us during our stay. The Service was also always professional and eager to please even. The Royal Myconian Hotel was during our stay nearly fully booked and very well visited from guests throughout the world incl. english, german, american, french and spanish guests plus some russians thrown into the mix as well. The location is spectacular and stunning at the same time which is shared between the Royal Myconian Hotel and it’s sister hotel, the Myconian Imperial Hotel, ( we had a good look upon it incl. the lobby and pool ) all both are members of the Leading Hotels of the World and family owned at the same time. All rooms incl. ours no. 208 are bungalow style and have mostly sea view on offer plus pool view or mixed views incl. mountain views. However the way via steps to the beach can be judged steep by many incl. us - having said this the superb pools made all the way up for this. The views from the pools are stunning incl. a complete Elia Bay Panorama of the Mediterranean Sea.
Nearly each guest we have encountered made many photos from the views alone here! We also loved the many amenities on offer at the Royal Myconian incl. free bus transfers to Mykonos Town, harbour ( which we enjoyed tremendously incl. the Mykonos port with cruise ships and ferries, the iconic Mykonos wind mills, shopping at the highest order think incl. Nautica, La Martina, Franck Muller, D&G plus more was on offer plus many little lanes to explore with white washed picture postcard architecture and churches as the superb restaurants and cafes on the waterfront ) and the airport, the spa which offers St. Barth’s products and services, indoor swimming pool area plus steam rooms, saunas and quiet rooms are on offer - this was on offer against an extra charge of 15 Euros per person, which covers however the whole stay. The hotel has also a chapel and offers wedding or re-wowing packages as well, plus a 2000 person meeting and convention centre was on offer. In the lobby there are a couple of shops selling souvenirs, jewellery and essentials. The atmosphere of the whole property was upscale, smart casual and full of pride for the hotel and the fine surroundings, as well the kids are catered too incl. kids pool, playground, highchairs and cots. Not that we had seen many young kids here. Most guests in early October 2009 were in there middle or matured years and couples or larger Tour groups notably from the USA. We had always sunshine and best of luck with the bathing weather as well for the Jacuzzi. In the evening there was always a nice breeze which was well compacted with the day temperatures. So there was no reason to be worried about being too cold or being too hot either! In the lobby there is also a small library with books and even a chess board was on offer. All in all the Royal Myconian Hotel which is part of the Myconian Collection encompassing four properties of the highest caliber in Mykonos comes highly recommended from us and should be on the travel list of many years to come as a resort hotel which brings a smile on every face we saw here incl. ours! Mykonos has 6000 inhabitants and at any point of the island the airport is never longer than 25 min. away! Also highly recommended comes a scenic ferry transfer to the Island of Delos - which is an archaeological masterpiece - the ferry service leaves on most days excl. Monday from the Delos ferry pier on the waterfront in Mykonos town. The cost per person return was 15 Euros. So Folks, we sincerely hope we could help to make up your mind about the beautiful island of Mykonos and the superb Royal Myconian Hotel in Elia, Mykonos, Greece. So do not forget to FLY!STAY!EXPLORE!MORE! and see some islands which offer sunshine in incomparable beauty! ( This was our third time in Greece, but our first time in Athens and Mykonos - before we had two times stayed at the Elounda Bay Palace - also a member of the Leading Hotels of the World - in Elounda, Crete, Greece way back in 2004 and 2005! ) We look for more Greece in the future! Thanks again and happy travels! By the way you might want to have also a lunch or a dinning experience at the sister hotel Myconian Ambassador which is 30 minutes away from the Royal Myconian and is a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux. The taxi cost each way around 20 Euros. Just let you know!

The good: Clean, spacious, gracious, beautifully located. There is a free bus service into and from Mykonos (town) frequently, and its very punctual and well organized. The breakfast buffet is wonderful, healthy and diverse. The swimming pool was lovely. The beach area is separated from the rest by a small fence, and being at the end of the beach does keep it relatively private. There is a nightly bed turn-down service as well, and our room always seemed to be cleaned...no matter morning or evening. Towels were replenished multiple times each day. The complimentary toiletries were very good quality products.

The bad: There is a hefty charge for Wi-fi connection; 6euro per 2 hours.

Summary: I will return

The hotel is definitely worth trying. Looks good, it is clean and attended by welcoming staff. In addition, it is set on the Elya beach that is in my view the best on the island. The scenery is simply splendid. Other than that Mykonos can be pretty windy (except maybe in July) but don't let that stop you. You will get a wonderful tan and you will come back with very pleasant memories.

We booked a sea view room which was on the second floor above the pool. View was breathtaking. The room was of average size, but the bed was huge. Bathroom was big and brand new. Our cleaning lady was the same every day - very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great - with lots of choice and champagne. The beach is clean with beautiful white sand (the hotel has a free private beach) and water is crystal clear. We rented a car for the whole stay and went to Myconos city to eat in the evenings. So I can say nothing about the hotel's restaurant. Went to spa once - quite relaxing experience. We had an early flight back so we asked to arrange a breakfast which was done. Stayed for 9 days& loved every minute of it.
Mind that the hotel stands on a steep heel, so it's a challenge to get to the beach on a hot sunny day (which was OK for us as we were willing to loose a few kilos). Also the hotel is away from the city, so if you want to get there you will defiantly be needing a car (we rented ours at the hotel).
This hotel is excellent if you want to relax away from the crowds and get a good service and as much sun&sea as you want.

This hotel was our choice for first class accomodations for our honeymoon to Greece, and we did not make a mistake...

The hotel has a huge lobby with 2 small shops in side and a large bar and seating area that is wall to wall marble, very impressive. Our first experience was meeting a gentleman by the name of Chrysakis Michel who happened to be at the front desk at the time we checked in, he made sure we had one of the best rooms at the highest point of the hotel for our honeymoon and was a pleasure to deal with, he went out of his way to give us directions to all the hot spots and points of interest on the island.

The hotel is a little far from the city but they have a bus shuttle service free of charge that runs every couple of hours from the hotel to the main square which is excellent, and the hotel has it's own private beach which is also beautiful.

The service by all the staff is excellent and well worth the stay in the hotel, Cvetan Miclvo is part of the service team and was very helpful with directions and information of the island.

The only area of improvement I would suggest is to update the rooms slightly, they are very nice but could use more modern touch to them to keep that hotel on the cutting edge, and constantly on top of the competition.

Not a 5 star, but if you don't mind sleeping on a super hard bed, and approximate service, the views and location on top of the best beach of the island, with a gigantic pool, can be a compensation.
Negatives: BED.
the towel rationing is simply ridiculous.
the air conditioning was noisy.
Far from Mykonos town

I have stayed at many hotels which are part of the chain, Leading Hotels of the World and have always been pleased. This is the first hotel where I have left with mixed feelings.

The rooms and lobby are nice but the hotels main selling points are its pools and beach. Each boasts beautiful views and a relaxing atmosphere. Shuttle to town is very convenient but keep in mind that it only runs at specific times. Elia is quite far from town (30 min) but it is worth making the trip to see the sunset in Little Venice and to wander the streets - everything comes alive around 11pm. Breakfast at the hotel is one of the best that I have seen from a buffet breakfast.

The major downside is the staff. They are by no means friendly. My LHW membership entitles me to free upgrades or late checkouts but neither could be accomodated. In addition, when we checked in, no one mentioned to us that we needed to arrange our free transfer to the port a day ahead of our departure. According to the staff a letter was supposed to be left in our room detailing what needed to be done. This never happened. So, when we went to arrange our transfer in the morning for a late afternoon boat we were told that they could not accomodate us. After much arguing with three different people the hotel ordered and paid for a taxi to the port. But, even this could not be pulled off without any kinks. The wrong luggage was packed into the taxi and the taxi driver told to drive us to the airport - a mistake i only realized once we were halfway there.

While these aren't reasons not to stay at this hotel, keep in mind that you will need to be on top of everything when you go because no one will go out of their way for you.
