We stayed at Mystique for three nights on our honeymoon after escaping from the Astir Palace outside Athens. What a difference! The van was waiting to pick us up from the ferry dock despite our ferry running over an hour late, the porters scrambled to take our luggage down the steps as we walked into the main office and were warmly greeted by the manager proffering champagne....absolute A+ on the service for our entire stay, could not find fault with anything (and just to note - we were staying in one of the less expensive rooms, so it's not as if this level of service is purely reserved for those booking the 2,000+ EUR/night suites). The staff definitely went out of their way on every occasion to ensure that our stay was wonderful.
The pool area and restaurant were always impeccably clean, well maintained, with prompt service. The food at the restaurant was quite good and high priced, but not exhorbitantly so - we ate there several times. We also did the wine tasting which was fun. Plus, there's a host of good restaurants in Oia which is just a couple blocks away.
Is the pool small? Yes. All pools overlooking the caldera are. But with 18 rooms, the pool was never overcrowded. If you want a big pool, don't stay on Santorini
Are there alot of steps? Yes. But every place overlooking the caldera has alot of steps. If you don't want alot of steps, don't stay on Santorini.
The other thing to note about Mystique is that unlike the dozens of other high end hotels dotting the Caldera from Fira to Oia...the balconies actually give you some privacy, instead of being right next to a public walking path or on top of your neighbor, which is really nice.
Would definitely recommend this place to others - it is alot of money, but we left happy that we spent it.
