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.
