Royal Myconian Resort & Thalasso Spa Center
Ranked #5 of 7 Hotels in Elia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 July 2017

The hotel is situated a short walk away from the lovely beach below (there's a shuttle that goes back and forth, if you prefer). We were transported there from the airport in a private bus which took us up the steep hill the hotel is located on, where it looks out over the sea. The trip took about 20 minutes, giving us time to see some of the island along the way.

The open reception and helpful staff were very welcome after our flight. The hotel is beautifully and uniquely decorated - its modern but comfortable atmosphere was exactly what we wanted. We were taken through the hotel to our room, which was located at the highest point of the hotel, where we had an amazing balcony view and hot tub, which was welcome on the windier, chillier days in May.

The room was clean and minimal in the typical Mykonos style, which I like. The only small issue I had with the entire experience was that the bathroom/toilet area isn't the most private - although, unlike some hotels, at least there were partitions!

Everything else was amazing, though. We enjoyed the pool area and music/atmosphere there, it wasn't too loud, so if you're not into the partying side of Mykonos, don't worry! The restaurants in the hotel were good too - a nice selection of food and accommodating bar staff. We also noticed a famous face whilst on our stay!

However, the best part of the trip was getting engaged! My fiance had arranged with the staff to set up our room with candles and flowers, ready for when we got back from a very nice dinner at the hotel. Thank you so much to all the staff involved, I'll never forget my stay there and the perfect proposal!

I'll definitely be back - I loved the experience and loved the beautiful island of Mykonos. I'd recommend staying a little further into the summer, however, since it was very, very windy whilst we were there, which made it a little chilly from time to time. The staff were very friendly, kind and got to know you throughout the trip, we really appreciated all their efforts.

Room Tip: All rooms face the sea, which is great! Our room was up high and had a balcony & hot tub, which...

We stayed at the wonderful Avaton first then moved to the Royal , major mistake , taking into account same ownership , they could not be further apart .

Uncomfortable basic rooms, hard beds , rude staff, not a nice experience , but the bed is not fit for purpose , when we requested to see a manager or talk , he would not communicate , offered no solution and forced full payment for a night of no sleep,

Top tip stay at the Avaton not the Royal

The staff of this hotel are rude, providing no service , breakfast you get no service ,but grey eggs , no coffee

Worst is the bed , old and hard on top of wood the sister hotel Avaton is much better , but the Royal is poor , with a major attitude

The manager was not prepared to communicate, over the issues as below them to speak with frustrated guests .

After a night of no sleep due to the old mattress with springs poking into you, they offered nothing after 30 minutes of arguing ,

Avoid this hotel and go to the Avaton which I stayed 3 nights at in the same stay

The royal is worthy of one star only
