Recommended Hotels on Mykonos
When you get hotel advice from me you must understand that it is from someone who went from living in caves in Mykonos to 5-star hotels in thirty years. These are the hotels I recommend, which are the hotels that Fantasy Travel uses in their Island-hopping Programs that feature Mykonos. They are all beautiful hotels. Below them I have listed the best of the rest which can be booked through other sources.
Princess of Mykonos
For Affordable Luxury on quiet Saint Stefanos Beach go to the 4-star Princess
of Mykonos, now called the Mykonos Princess. I stayed here and it was great. The beach is family oriented for those who have a fear of running into nudists. There are several good restaurants in the area, buses and taxis into town and a pool bar and restaurant for those who want to stay close to home for their daily and evening entertainment. I think this is the best option for those who want to be outside of town. Families, honeymooners who don't want the distraction of being too close to the nightlife
and the action of Mykonos
town, and recovering alcoholics will find that they are less tempted if they stay here, which will also give them the illusion of being on a quiet Greek island. Fantasy Travel had discounted rates on this hotel which is why we were staying in such a nice place. Visit the Hotel Princess of Mykonos Website
For an affordable hotel right in town, yet within walking distance of the beach I highly recommend the Hotel
Adonis owned by a Greek/American couple, Ros and Michalis who are excellent hosts. The rooms are large and comfortable, with 2 double beds, and you can't beat the location. The hotel is located close to the bus stop so you can easily get to the beaches and it is a ten minute walk to the cafes in the harbor, and closer to the shopping and restaurant areas of Mykonos town. It is also a 5 minute walk to the nearest beach. This is one of those hotels that has the same customers come back year after year
which makes it a fun place
to stay but sometimes hard to find availability in July and August. But it does not hurt to try and if you are successful you are guaranteed to make friends with people who are smart, funny and know the island quite well. Some in fact who have even written books about it. This is where we stayed the last time we were in Mykonos, again because Fantasy Travel had discounted rates. Visit the Adonis Hotel website
Vencia Boutique Hotel
The Vencia Boutique Hotel is located on the slopes of Mykonos town and a ten minute walk down to the harbour.
This delightful hotel has a superb pool deck with views to match. There
are 31 air-conditioned bedrooms, all with radio and telephone, mini-fridge, shower room and balcony. Most have single beds. Breakfast and light meals are served on the lovely terrace overlooking the town and bay. Vencia Boutique Hotel, has been recently renovated and refurbished. All rooms have double beds, and in the case of triples a sofa bed or an additional bed. You will enjoy a spectacular view from your private veranda or balcony. Visit the Vencia Boutique Hotel website and use the option to book with Fantasy Travel for discounted rates and full assistance with all your hotel bookings, ferry tickets, transfers and whatever else you may need.

More Mykonos Hotels
Mykonos is the most expensive island in Greece and hotel prices reflect this. However that does not mean you can't find inexpensive places to stay here. You may not be in the center of the action or right on the beach, but you will have more money to spend and as long as you don't have to take taxis everywhere you should be quite
happy in one of these lower priced hotels. Some of them are self catering so you can save money eating at home too. Be aware that if a price looks
to good to be true it may not be. My daughter and her friends got a room in Paradise Beach that was little more than a whitewashed cinder block hut, more like a kiln than a room, with a narrow slit for a window and no AC. Because she hated the room she could not wait to leave the island. So make sure your room has AC and that you see some photos of it before you book it. For this reason Booking.com's Mykonos Hotel Search is a good way to find
and book your hotels. There will be photos, descriptions, guest
reviews and in many cases you can book it and then cancel with no cancellation fee.

Booking Hotels on Mykonos
For Hotels in Mykonos and
island combinations including Mykonos the best advice I can give you is to contact Fantasy
Travel in Athens who have great rates on hotels and provide
excellent service and can tell you the pros and cons of each hotel. From the moment you arrive in Athens and they meet you
at the airport, til the day you fly home you will be well
taken care of. If there are any problems they will be dealt with
and you probably won't even know they existed. Their agents speak fluent English, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and even work through the weekends. I also recommend Dolphin Hellas Travel
in Athens or
Aegean Thesaurus Travel
in Sifnos. Both are
excellent agencies that can take the
uncertainty out of your travel
arrangements. Don't show up in August and expect to just find a
room. Besides being the busiest period for the tourists, all of
Greece take their holidays and the majority of the people also go to the islands. For those who want to come to Mykonos and skip Athens altogether this can be done through any of the above mentioned agencies if you just ask. For more Mykonos hotels visit my Cyclades/Mykonos Hotels page or by going to Booking.com's
Mykonos page and using the search options to find exactly what you want.
Budget travelers, backpackers and college students can visit my Budget Travel page for an itinerary that includes Mykonos and Santorini. Also Fantasy Travel has put together a
number of packages that offer quality accommodation on Mykonos for economical prices. They feature hotels in and around the Plaka in Athens and are all good quality
hotels. I recommend Fantasy Travel's program The Pursuit of Pleasure which is 12 Days and 11 nights in Athens, Mykonos and Santorini including hotels, ferries, transfers, tours, admission to archaeological sites and breakfast starting at 940 euros per person. You can't beat the price for these
hotels and this itinerary. Visit Fantasy Travel's Special Offers Page.
You can also use my Create-an-itinerary form which allows you to choose islands, hotels, and tours and submit it and get a price for the whole thing within 24 hours. Try it.
