This hotel was good in comparisons to others I have stayed at across similar years but it had it's downsides. On arrival to the port in mykonos we were picked up by the manager of the hotel. He was very nice and very helpful. We picked up some other travellers and headed to the hotel. After check in we were shown to our room and I have to say it smelled really bad in there. It was so strong at one point both my husband and myself were gagging. The bathroom was okay. It was small. We suspected that the stench was coming from the bathroom so we opened the small window in there (that overlooked the street I might add) and we left it for a bit with the toilet seat closed and went out for the night hoping it would improve. When we returned it was still the same. We told the manager and he was nice enough to go out and get some air freshener for us but this still didn't help. We decided to just deal with it and keep the window open in the bedroom as much as we could. Doing this helped a bit but with the heat you can imagine what it was like coming back to our room after being out all day. In addition out room was exactly in the entryway to the hotel so pretty much anyone could access our room from the street through our window when we left it open. Due to this we kept all our valuable belongings locked away. This was inconvenient. The breakfast at the hotel was continental. It was very average and nothing special. The bar prices were okay they weren't super cheap but not ridiculously expensive. Pretty standard for a hotel. The location of the hotel was in a good spot. You had to walk downhill a long pathway to get into town if you didn't have a scooter or an atv to get to the other side. Beware of the walk back to the hotel though. It is uphill and not so fun in the sun if you go middle of the day. The staff were nice especially the lady who served at the bar. The hotel provided towels for the pool if necessary. The pool area was not great. There was not enough shade for those who didn't want to be in the sun and there was not enough sun lounges to go around. People would reserve a sun lounge by putting their towel there and then not come back for hours leaving other to tan on the ground or to just sit in the pool. To be honest I didn't like being there during the day as there wasn't enough spaces to lay out and it was too crowded. Also when we were hot and wanted to retreat to the room the smell was so bad it was hard to concentrate on anything else. The tv in the room was also so small and had very limited channels (2). It was not even worth putting it on. The hotel did have a laundry service that was pretty fast which I did appreciate. We booked a twin room if that helps and we asked for a nice view. The wifi was very slow and only worked if you were near the modem near the reception area or by the pool. All in all, this hotel wasn't bad. The friendly staff made up for the negatives but we won't be staying there again.
