Reviewed 8 October 2012

We stayed at Alkyon for four nights in July. We were travelling on a budget so we stayed in a 'Mountain View Room' which was perfect for us. It was a very nice room and more affordable than the Oceanview rooms. The hotel itself is a really beautiful boutique hotel. The reception/bar area is beautifully decorated, the pool and pool bar is a great place to relax during the day. The staff were very nice and provided us with free rides to and from the hotel. The location was good as well, a short walk down to the centre of Mykonos town. We got a bit lost coming back at night a few times, but once you get the hang of it it's not too bad. It is quite a steep walk back up though -- but this allows for the great view! There are beautiful views from almost everywhere in the hotel (see my pictures!). The breakfast was nice, a good spread of options including hot breakfast (eggs, bacon, etc.) along with the usual continental breakfast. The hotel staff also helped us to rent an ATV one day to travel to Elia Beach. Overall we would definitely recommend staying here. It is a beautiful hotel in a really relaxing spot.

This is an EXCELLENT hotel - feels like 5 stars. It is boutique so the customer service is absolutely superb. The towels are big and soft, the rooms are HUGE, I was given a king bed and was travelling solo! The rooms have flatscreens and then two long french doors facing the sea that you open in the morning and can sit on your own balcony looking out. The pool is absolutely stunning beyond words. It is long and VERY relaxing to sit next to and just beautiful, the way the pool area is set up it almost feels like an infiniti pool (even though its not) because they were very smart in design and 'tiered' the pool area. The pictures really show how gorgeous this is. There is relaxing beautiful and chilled out music that is played in the pool area, the lounge chairs have big comfy cushions.

Also - it is STILL hot in mykonos end of sept until about mid/late October - so go go go now!

You could easily spend all day chilling at the hotel and taking in the phenomenal view over mykonos town and listening to music and enjoying a cocktail (there is a great poolside bar) or you can explore the island.
I would reccommend giving mykonos AT LEAST 3 full days. seriously. the island has so much to offer.
Everything at this hotel is luxurious with a really smart attention to detail.
10 minutes walk downhill - actually less than that, you are in town- perfect!
so you can escape the 'party atmosphere' and sleep in a little -spa-like hotel, or just walk to the parties.
The breakfast is also huge and again, you have this stunning view.

Would reccommend you contact alkyon directly / sofia when you book as it may look like they are 'sold out' on booking.com, but they in fact may have a room available.

Sofia is phenomenal - she gives excellent customer service and thinks of everything, you get reccomendations of where to go, which beaches are quiet , which are parties, best restaurants, and EVEN the time table of the buses! That is attention to detail!!
YOu are picked up from port or airport and driven to the hotel - they REALLY just take care of you and your every need.
If you need a scooter or car she can arrange it and she gets THE BEST rates, other places were quoting me much higher than her price. She is honest, very sweet, and extremely knowledgable and the entire staff really wants you to have a good time.
Location and view could not get any better.
Pool = stunning.
customer service = impeccable.
You pay the same price, well, even more, to stay IN the town with no pool or ambiance and no breakfast or transfers.
Rooms = huge and so comfortable and inviting
Value = unbeatable.
Cannot say enough good things. This place is a steal and excellent value. They will set you up and take care of you so that everything you want to see and do in Mykonos - you can.
Highly recommend it. and again, give it at least 3 nts and 3 days. Mykonos is a special island.

We stayed at the Alkyon for 3 nights. We had a great experience. They picked us up from the airport for free (with a short delay). The lobby was beatiful!!! Our room did not have a veiw but it was spacious and clean. And the minute we stepped out of the room, we were faced with an amazing view. The breakfast location was beautiful and the breakfast was fine too. The owner's daughter, Sophie, was lovely and helpful. The location was GREAT because situated on a small hill where you could see all of Mykonos Town and the beatiful sea but only a 10 min. walk to the town. Overall, loved it and thought it was of GREAT value. I would defintely go back :)

I was lucky enough to stay at the Alkyon in July. This was the second Greek island after Santorini I visited and it was perfect. From the moment we arrived iat the hotel the receptionist Sophia made us feel like we were truly at home.The hotel itself is in a great spot on the island a little away from the city centre but still very close and in walking distance to some restaurants that are a little less frequented but equally delicious (Alexis,Oregano).Every night before heading out we were sitting at the pool bar and shoot the breeze about our lives back home and life in Greece.Sophia also recommended us some very nice restaurants and clubs to go around.Overall I can't rate my experience at the Alkyon any higher.Great hotel, great people and great island.

We had such an amazing stay at the Alkyon hotel everything was just perfect! The accomodations were heavenly. It's such a peaceful and relaxing environment with beautiful views and a gorgeous pool area where you can enjoy cocktails and snacks while lounging in the sun. I can't say enough good words about the staff, they were all so friendly and attentive, always on hand to gladly help with whatever we needed.Sophia made many recommendations which helped us enjoy the island even more. We will be back again, and I wouldn't think to stay anywhere else.This place is amazing!!

We've just come back from a week in Mykonos and a lovely stay at the Alkyon Hotel. The room was lovely, cleaned every day and fresh towels for each evening as well. Sophia was amazing, she's very helpful, great advice on where to go and what to see and where to eat. The hotel is located about 10 minutes from the town, with a little path right next to the hotel.. bit steep, but quite a nice stroll to take in the evenings before dinner.. (and you can get a taxi back to the hotel post dinner for less than 5 euros). The pool area is gorgeous, with very good value Mythos (cheapest we found anywhere on the island!) the only downside was the repetitive playlist which by about 4pm was on a loop! The breakfast is simple but totally fine. We got a free airport pickup and drop off which was lovely. We also rented a quad bike on one of the days, which was organised for us by Sophia. We were picked up, taken to the rental and got a really good price (about 24 euros for the day). Overall it was completely perfect, and we had such a nice holiday. Thank you!

Room Tip: We paid 30 euros extra a night for a room underneath the pool area with a little patio. really gorge...

We have just returned from a weeks stay at Alkyon Hotel and had a great time!

We were picked up at the airport by the hotel and the driver was very friendly, the transfer was quick in a great modern people carrier. At the hotel Sophia was waiting to greeted us and although we arrived a few hours before the official check-in time we only had to wait about 15 minutes until our room was ready.

We stayed in room 110 which was up high and had fantastic views out to sea from our huge balcony and down to Mykonos town. The room while simple had everything you need in great condition and the room was spotless clean.

We spent most of the days laid by the pool which is a good size, again with fantastic views and comfy sunloungers. Service by the pool was fantastic with a good selection of drinks but sadly a tiny food menu (3 sandwiches to choose from) this was the only thing that was a bit of a let down.

Breakfast was included in our rate and offered a great selection of food and drink.

The walk down to Mykonos town is lovely but be warned the walk back uphill to the hotel is a killer (although we did it every night and every night I said "tomorrow we're getting a cab")

Overall we had a great stay and I will be back!!

Room Tip: Pay for the best view you can afford as the view is worth every penny!
