I went to Ammos Hotel 2 years ago and it had just opened. So I decided to go back as the location is great, and so is the hotel. So yes Ammos is still a beautiful hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean. the shower is great. The design is really wow! I love it. And very important, once you close the door to your room (we had a room by the pool) you didn't hear a sound of the music on the beach or from the other room except once the door from the room next to ours.
Breakfast is good, a good variety of breads, croissants, cakes, local specialties, eggs, fresh pineapple, melon and watermelon, but for some reason they had canned fruit salad which I found hard to understand. The restaurant is excellent, but quite expensive.
The beach is always great, but the music was louder than before and getting louder ever hour which is fun the first day, but then gets boring as the DJ plays the same songs again and again.
A few things that went wrong on the three times I had to deal with the reception of Ammos.
I sent an email to ask them to send a car to the port and signed my email by my name, the person who answered me referred to me with a completely different name. When I asked her if she had read it correctly she apoligised saying she had had a long day... If I did that in my job, I wouldn't last long!
Then when we arrived at the port, they called to ask where we were because the driver had been waiting for us for 'very long'. The ship was late as it was a long weekend and lots of people and cars had to board. Again when I reached I mentioned that I didn't really appreciate being called on a foreign number as I was already in the car and she argued that a lot of tourist didn't look properly.
And last, the day before I left, I went to reception to ask them to arrange for the transfer and to prepare the check-out. She looked at her list and told me that I was on her check-out list, then pulled out my reservation and told me I was to leave the next day. I explained to her that I had changed my reservation two days after I first booked, she started arguing and when I showed her my reservation on my phone she apologised.
To me this is a lack of professionalism. For a hotel which is part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, they need to be more centered and professional and not behave like amateurs.
The other things we noticed, and I'm Greek origins but not the the friend who was with me, was that Greeks had a far better and quicker service on the beach, but that a detail.
Internet worked better than two years ago in the bedrooms, but hardly ever worked in the restaurant or on the beach. But then didn't work in most restaurant on that beach.
In short, the prices have gone up by at least 50% in 2 years if you book in advance or get a good offer on internet, much more if you try a last minute booking, but for no extra service and still have to pay for your sunbed which I find quite hard to accept.
I would recommend Ammos, especially for it's location and design. And had a great holiday and Mykonos is always a beautiful island.
