“Prettiest view EVER”
Reviewed 5 August 2007

Stayed at Mystique for five nights with my boyfriend. We were in room #8--it was new, clean, and beautifully decorated. (I prefer understated elegance when I am on an island!) And of course, our view of the caldera was outstanding. I can't wait to go back to mystique.

I felt the need to write this review given some of the various critiques by prior reviewers and also because of the amazing time I had at this resort.

The hotel from check-in to check-out was nothing but superior in every aspect. The pick up from airport was in an air conditioned mercedes van with a very pleasant driver. Check in went very smooth as we were greeted with champagne while our room was being prepared (only had to wait half hour while we were given a nice tour of the resort).

We had a great room that had panoramic views and a great veranda where we could sunbathe or just relax. The room was very spacious given what greek island room sizes tend to be like and the bathroom was also huge. We loved the modern amenities such as flat screen TV, free wi-fi internet throughout, dvd player and stereo (which plays throughout the suite including bathroom). Granted some verandas are more private than others but after looking at some of the other hotels in Oia, Mystique, given that it is lower on the mountain, is the most secluded. We also spoke to a local person who knew all of the hotels and said Mystique had far better rooms than Katikies (she said they were smaller and run down and old). I am VERY glad we changed to Mystique.

The wine cave was also fun where we had a great wine tasting. The staff was very friendly, not intrusive and was there to get anything we needed. Someone even went to several different stores to look for a specific power converter that we needed.

As for some of the criticisms - the steps are not bad at all. Perhaps if you have a disability or are extremely out of shape the walk up might be a challenge but we found it to be fine and if you want to stay in Oia, steps are unavoidable. You are on the top of a mountain so this is expected. If you dont want steps you may need to check out a more flat island.

Pool size: perfect. If you want to do olympic sized laps then perhaps this isnt the place but I didnt see any pools in Oia that size and frankly it adds to the charm. There were never more than 4 people in the pool at any one time given the amount of rooms. We used it to cool off and for that it was amazing and the view from the pool was breathtaking.

Jacuzzi - it was huge and yes it does take a while to fill up but what can be expected??? The staff said they would be glad to fill it while we went to dinner which we did twice and we came back to our room to a lovely , filled jacuzzi with a window where we could look out into the caldera while relaxing.

I honestly couldnt find anything wrong with this place and perhaps if i had to, the 55 euro per person breakfast is expensive but it was included in our room so it didnt bother us.

I am probably missing some of the highlights but this is a place I would definitely go to again without question.

  • Liked — That it exists, the glorious view, the room
  • Disliked — that we had to leave eventually
