A great introduction for the first-timer. Highly recommended.
Wonderful - nice, friendly hotel and everything was taken care of for us.
Tour organisers were somewhat disorganised, once in the island they couldn't find my name on their lists. But besides that everything was ok.
We used a first class hotel. The hotel location and staff service were excellent. We enjoyed nice view from the balcony. That would be great if there was 3 days or 4days tour as options.
We stayed at the EVA Hotel. The room was nice, clean and worth a return trip. The hotel staff was wonderful and perfect. STAY THERE!!! Our ferry back to Athens was cancelled but upon arriving for breakfast in the hotel lobby, the staff quickly informed us and made arrangements for us to fly out. They were so helpful and kind. Mykonos was the highlight of the trip. I can't wait to go back and hopefully stay there. Viator is the place to book your tours.
Hotel was great except too far out of town on a steep narrow and busy road,also return pickup to the port was a little late. Major complaint was the boat.....we paid a lot of money for this tour and wasn't given an allocated seat on the 5 1/2 hour boat trip each way,had to sit in corridors on hard uncomfortable chairs fighting for space with many others. Perhaps a 2 or 3 night option could be offered
This was a last-minute decision on my part, so Viator was helpful in terms of organizing ferry tickets and hotel transfers while I was in another country. That being said, with some pre-planning this trip can be done on your own for a MUCH MORE reasonable price. And if money isn't really the issue, I would suggest taking a fast ferry or even a plane because the time on the island is quite limited by the 5 1/2 hour ferry ride each way.
The hotel I stayed at on Mykonos (Mina Beach) was "tourist grade," which apparently means no air conditioning, no hotel amenities and unreliable availability of hotel staff. Luckily there was a beautiful beach just down the street that had numerous food and beverage options. The hotel was also not in the town of Mykonos but instead required a 15-minute bus ride (2 euros) and 5-minute walk to get to. A slight inconvenience but easily enough to navigate.
All in all, I would recommend planning this trip on your own if you have the time – and take more than 2 days! Mykonos is beautiful.
