beautiful small hotel, nice for relaxing. based on our experience of hotels it is a good 4 star hotel, certainly not a 5 star.
The beautiful view, the ambience of a boutique hotel with plenty of privacy, the spacious room and the proximity to a great beach. Breakfast by the pool was a real treat. The staff were professional and very accomodating while being friendly and relaxed. The mosquitos! Despite their best efforts with mosquito nets accross the windows and balcony doors, mosquitos still managed to find their way into the room and hide throughout the day between the nooks/cracks in the wooden ceiling.
We really enjoyed this hotel. Everything is really perfect. The staff is particulary helpful, friendly and very efficient. We stayed in a "Superior Suite" which was really nice and very well accomodated. This hotel and its whole team do really deserve the 5 stars. We recommend this hotel and we are looking forward to spending our next holiday in "La Résidence Mykonos".
The pools are beautiful. And the service of the bar-tender is impressive. The whole place is clean and tidy. Quiet, as well. Far from the town, so you need a car if your plan is not only stay in the hotel...
The hotel staff were exceptionally welcoming. The facilities were beauiful and there was a lovely serene atmosphere. The rooms were lovely
The peaceful atmosphere around the pool.
The delux rooms were spacious and had great sea views. The walk back from the beach at night was dark, take a torch.
The decor, views, toiletries and easy parking. a bit far from action unless one has a car...fortunately we did!
The hotel is very intimate, situated in a very quiet environment and very nicely decorated, in a design style.The garden with palmtrees is beautifull. The room( executive suite)was very comfortable and big enough. ( very good beds)The food is realy delicious!!! you can reach mykonos with the bus (15min) , the best is to rent a car or bike to discover the rest of the island. There aren't a lot of sunbeds around the small poolarea, and in case of hot weather there are no umbrellas, but you have a nice covered outside lounge space. We never saw the bar, neither the second exterior lounge space illuminated in the evening.( economics?) The airco in the breakfastroom doesn't work hard enough or not, it was very hot.
Very nice comfortable hotel, close to Kalo Livadi beach, away from "madhouse" mykonos city and away from the crazy (hotel) prices. Designed with eye for detail. Value for money is not easy to find in Myconos, this ís one though....
Beautiful hotel, welcoming and accommodating staff and amazing sea views - very relaxing and chilled out location Bathrooms could do with updating slightly - everything apart from this was perfect.
Friendliness, absolute tranquility, attentiveness of staff, location to beach and lovely surroundings of pretty and hotel. Probably the room's bathroom. For a beach break did not find it sufficient or comfortable.
quiet and nice pool area
The hotel is close to one of the best beaches of mykonos. The room had plenty of space and nice view to the sea. The children are not allowed so our stay it was very peaceful. Although we were told that there were umbrellas on the beach only for the hotel customers, these umbrellas were taken by non hotel customers so we could not find a free one for us. The room needed maintenance (lamps were not working, the door was not easily locking).
Η τοποθεσία και η θέα. Ο χώρος της υποδοχής και το ευρύχωρο του δωματίου. Την εξυπηρετήση από το προσωπικό και την καθαριότητα. Πέρα από την ανάγκη πιο εξειδικευμένου προσωπικού χρειάζεται πιο ορθολογική οργάνωση των χώρων. Αν τα ταξίδια από την κουζίνα στο εστιατόριο ήταν πιο σύντομα, ίσως να μπορούσαμε να πάρουμε το πρωινό σε εύλογο χρόνο. Μην πάρετε το δωμάτιο 20 αν δεν θέλετε να υποστείτε τον θόρυβο της αντλίας νερού.
Although at the end of Season,the Staff were very helpful &friendly.The Hotel was kept very clean,breakfast was excellent-free use of Laptop from reception &receptionist very helpful when we decided to book a flight from Mykonos & a free Transfer to Airport Only minor-the jacuzzi bath was broken in our room-we were asked if wanted to move room but declined-Pool was was running out of stock but was end of season-some people didnt like music being played around Pool Area!
the view was breathtaking .
The supreme staff! It's basically family run, and they treat you like one of their own. Service goes a long way in my opinion. Can't blame the hotel, but it's difficult to get around on this island. Taxis are challenged.
The rooms were modern good price friendly staff. Pool was very nice. Distance from main town and paradise beach
Women were very helpful Men did not listen Took my passports the entire trip and I couldn't get into clubs. Too far from everything Overcharged my card
Everything was amazing! The breakfast was unbelievable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The bus stop is right outside so I didn't mind that the location was a bit outside the main town. It was very clean and beautiful. Loved everything about this hotel. Nothing
The views, the proximity and the pool were great The staff were hardly ever around and when they were they were rather impolite and unhelpful. Also the aircon didn't work in our room so it was boiling. All in all, I felt a bit cheated out of my 'once in a lifetime' hotel
It a very Peace Full location. the room are very well decorated. The atmosphere form the loby to the pool side... it simply relaxing... Comfort and charme...
close to the beach, good view
the view was excellent ,the staff very,very nice
Excellent view. We had view of the sea which is well worth it. The breakfast was ok but the service was excellent. While they tell you about the beach that is about 10 minute walk from the hotel, there is a nice beach very close by around 2 minutes walk. The beach is clean and you can work out with the restaurants on the beach so that you can stay on the beach with a beach chair and unbrella for free as long as you have lunch with them. The first restaurant does that but most of the others just discount a 10 Euro (for 2) charge if you spend a certain amount on lunch. Asking for single queen/king size bed did not help at all. We had two small beds put together. sheets and single pillow which is not that comfortable.
Very nice hotel with strong and supportive management team Poor quality of few receptionists
Eventhough it wasn't at Mykonos town center, the location was great. It was close to the beach, restaurants, mini-markets and bus stop. Not to say that we had great view from our room. Very nice. The only complaint that I have is the reception staff weren't very pleasant. Helpful, yes but not very nice.
Excellent hotel staff. Relatively quiet location in Mykonos terms.
The pleasure of Kalafatis beach which was quiet and solely for our use. No crowds but families and a wonderful view of the sea. I spent days on the beach. The hotel is a fair distance from town or any nightlife should you want to see it. You would need to rent a car or bike to get anywhere other than the resort...
nice view improve access to the rooms
Very close to the beach and a tavern. Very windy during August Too expensive> not so many facilities for kids.
The resturant down the road. The view. The silent ring tone on the wake up call. The stained hard mattress.
jacuzzi is nice bad region, old hotelcomplex, masstouristic room and overall style
The beach, the surrounds and the staff were great. The bathroom was smelly and dark. Fortunately, there were outdoor showers. The beds were uncomfortable. Didn't feel comfortable in the rooms.
flexible breakfasts 8.0am /12.00, friendly and efficient staff slightly noisy iin the concrete open aur vpassageways outside the romm between 8.00 and 10.30am (when I got up )
It is a very charming hotel. We loved our stay there. Although they state that we have free access to wifi internet in the roooms, we rarely were able to connect from the room and had to go to the Lobby in order to use it.
Even though we were above the pool area, we were still on the ground floor! Walk down the steep hill from main road with cases!
The facilities are great. The decoration is beautiful. The breakfast is the best. Very well located. Large rooms. Bathroom is new, comfortable and clean. Not all staff speak good english. Staff not especially friendly.
The location is great! It's easy to get the center. Nice room, nice pool, nice breakfast and cool bar.
The Semeli Hotel is a true find! My husband and I were very impressed with the beauty of the hotel and their outstanding staff. Our hosts were extremely warm, helpful, and efficient. They went out of their way to make us feel at home upon our arrival. We were exhausted from hours of traveling and they told us to take relax and simply take a seat at their gorgeous balcony, which overlooks the sea and town of Manorola as well as terraced balconies of grape vines and lemon trees. They gave us caviar on crackers and delicious white wine while they brought our bags to our room and processed our hotel registration. We felt completely at home and relaxed within moments. We highly recommend this hotel and hope to return some time soon!
good service, very good position booked a double room and anded up in a twin which we weren't happy with, especially when not full.
location - design some noise from the children playground near the hotel
This hotel was perfect. The location was amazing the hotel staff was incredibly friendly. It was just perfect. stay here for sure!
The hotel staff members were very hospitable and extremely attentive. The late, full service breakfast was also a great benefit. The internet connection was not strong enough for reception in the room.
Plenty of room space, superb (included) breakfast with very personalised service at reputedly one of the best restaurants of the island, convenient pool just out of the room, airport pickup / delivery, cooking facilities in the room, free wireless internet, nice beach at walking distance (and on the same level!) with free use for hotel customers, flexibility in shuttle bus tours to down town. Insects, slightly more regular room clean-up / towel change needed. Cost is an issue but yet again this is Mykonos (and Elia)! Wireless reception in my room unavailable (I had to work next to the pool, which was not so bad of course).
Excelent room with magnific views. The hotel is facing the Elia beach. The long distance from city centre (20 min by car) and the weak water pressure in the bathroom (as well as the time it takes to warm up).
Everything was great. Spacious and clean rooms with great sea view, polite and friendly staff. The food and the service at Capelayo restaurant were fantastic. The beach right across the suites maybe one of the best in the island. We will be definitely be coming back next year! no nothing
perfect sea and beach supplies(sunbeds/umbrellas) quite expensive.
It was very nice to stay in Arte Mare elia suites. Everything was perfect and professional. Magnificent design of rooms and incredible view of the location. Professional staff always ready to help at any time. Delicious breakfast was waiting for you in the restaurant with an amazing view of the Elia beach.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was delicious and the location was perfect. We would stay there again.
The breakfast was phenomenal Shower was not hot nor did all the jets work at once. Quite a disappointment
The room was beautiful as was the view over the beach from our balcony. The beach was world-class... perfect for a romantic getaway or for families and the free use of beach chairs was a big plus. The driver to and from Mykonos was extremely accomodating and willing to work with our schedule. Breakfast was outstanding. Because we were there with kids, we had to rely upon room service from the Calypso restaurant for a few meals. I do not recommend this to anyone. The food was terrible and prices were sky high. Go instead to the other restaurant just a few feet down the beach... much better quality and better prices.
breakfast was great!
Everything except the size of thr rooms. They should be slightly larger for this type of hotel.
The service definitively specially from Kostantinos at the front desk was something very unique. The view from the room was amazing and I loved the orange juice during the breakfast the best! Thank you we really will be back N/a
Lovely location on well appointed beach Platis Yialos, close to Mykonos town (bus or taxi -10'). Great Spa, very helpful staff in all areas (dining, reception, spa, porter, etc) good cuisine (greek/fusion), good selection of wines, and nice ambiance. Bathroom maintaneance poor (a bit "jaded"- toilet seat supports broken/missing), door of room rattles in the wind (frequent) - fixed it myself with a piece of paper), delivery of gift items ordered beforehand for my wife's birthday were forgotten, follow up poor, (Hotel manager made nice gesture (free meal) in compensation, but was a shame.Hotel quite full and busy for end of season. Seem to have got their pricing right.
We booked a number of hotels through bookings.com for our honeymoon, this hotel was by far our favorite. The reception staff were professional and helpful. Not to mention the beach & local restaurants were 100 metres walk away. Our room was clean and tidy. We also had a beautiful view with a balcony looking out to the med. ps. The water massage was wonderful too No complaints, as mentioned this was our favorite hotel and destination.
Amazing staff and service Short walk to 2 great beaches Short drive to town
Friendliness of staff
The staff there is amazing!!! So accommodating, so kind, just lovely in every way possible! Beautiful hotel, great views, fully recommend!
excellent service, very nice room this hotel is not near by the beach. you have to pay 5 euro for a bench on the beach
Very friendly and helpful hotel staff. Beautiful setting with view of the beach. Pool was amazing. Just a short walk to the beach. Food was delicious and well presented. Would highly recommend this hotel. Our favourite hotel in Greece!
The view, proximity to the beach, the staff, the breakfast buffet it was a little difficult to get to the town.
Luxurious minimalistic decor. Very attentive staff. Great view from top floor. Own jacuzzi. Great room Fish & lobster dinner a bit bland. Could have used more seasoning.
Amazing views, attentive staff and a short drive to Mykonos the only thing missing in the morning was the Canadian edition of the news they provide.
The staff was very accommodating they make you feel like a VIP. Dinner at their restaurant was wonderful and so was the lunch by the pool. Spa services were also top notch. Overall I had a wonderful experience. Very quiet. Great place to go and relax. Thank you so much to the entire staff. Only reason I'm not giving 5 stars all the way is because the beach is about a 10 mnt walk down the hill or a quick drive which they kindly offered but I would have preferred being at a beach front property with cocktails available at the beach.
Upscale, clean, friendly staff. Pool area was delightful Outdoor jacuzzi was cleaned only once per week. Needed attention every day. Beds and pillows boarder on HARD
The view of the Aegean Sea The hotel is not 5 star level and certailnly not of the standard of the Leading Hotels of the world
Location, hospitality and services are pretty good, the most of time friendly and kind stuff help that your stay is very pleasant. There is the only one restaurant during the day(on the pool) which is open. They charge you for any additional service which is not usually for us in this chain of hotels. Furniture on the pool and terraces are in not perfect condition they need to substitution a long time ago or better maintenance . There is no possibility to take breakfast on open air and it is pity.
Even though the hotel was almost full, it never felt crowded or bustling with people and we were never disturbed by others. Very peaceful and relaxing experience.
Proximity to beach. Facilities. Luxury standards Shuttle service required
The beach is very close and is very nice with beautifull sand and free umbrellas for hotel guests. Very comfortable rooms, great breakfast - so much food! At the evening a lot of candles in a whole hotel - very nice. Free transportation to Mykonos Town, unconvinient hours of coming back to the hotel. We don't like this very much.
Pick-up service is good. Nice view, swimming pool and staff is very friendly. A little bit far from downtown and you have to take many steps. Have to rent a car/scooter to go out.
Was a little disapointing, position, breakfast, staff were good. as above
Excellent view, good breakfast and very friendly & helpful staff. Not too far from downtown, cost 3.5 euro taxi from downtown uphill to this modern hotel. And takes 10 minutes short cut to walk down to downtown with suprising scene. This hotel is around 5 minutes far from airport. Everything is good.
kind staff, good service. greate view from balcony
I like the most my view from the balcony to the island and the sea - perfect! I guess - nothing
Sophia and her family made us feel at home straight away. They are such beautiful and friendly people. The hotel has a great position on the side of the hill, overlooking Mykonos town. It has great views. The pool area was spectacular. Rooms were big and clean. The fresh crossaints at breakfast were awesome!! Breakfast choices were limited, but it could have been because it was off-season. It is hard to fault this hotel. It was spectacular!
hotel location is a little far from the center of the city if you are walking.. however if you rent a car or a motorcycle is perfect!
The fantastic view of Mykonos from the hotel, being up on the hill. The staff are friendly (although not all speak English) but even offer free transfers to the Mykonos town and the port Staying in a double room with a third roll out bed, the third bed was quite uncomfortable and not ideal. The springs of the bed could be felt and it was quite hard.
Sophia is helpful. The hotel is comfort and nice. We had a very nice sea view from the room and also from the restaurant. They provide the arrive and depart transport service to us. This hotel is located on the hill, so you need to some energy to climb up to the hill to back to the hotel if you refuse to take cab. Anyway, you may use the main road to walk back, though is further but is easier.
Hotel alkyon is in a spectacular location overlooking Mykonos town. The pool is lovely after a long day and you can watch the sunset from your balcony. Aircon in room is good. Decor good. Clean. If u need washing done the laundry half way down the steps to the town will do it for 10E for a big bag - wash, dry, fold. Drop it off and come back a few hours later - convenient. The hotel is not near any food or drink shops - 5 min walk but down a steep hill/stairs , then back up again -hot in middle of day and poorly lit sections of path at night. I think it is worth it for the view though - much better than staying in town. Taxi from town centre about 3E but can be quite a wait for a cab.
Calm atmosphere within the hotel, excellent facilities on site but good to have shuttle bus to Mykonos town; exceptionally good staff and good managers in evidence Poor beach facilities; dining room ridiculously dark for evening dining by September
Service and facilities
I enjoyed the beach,poolside and the staff friendliness. -At the beach there is no fresh water shower.The shuttle service to down town is very limited in the night...I suggest it every hour fro the hotel starting 6:00 pm and from down town till 2:00 am.
The hotel has a great view and the staff was exceptional. The beach next to the hotel - elia beach - is also excellent and has a great restaurant. If you want to visit the island, specially the center, you should rent a car.
Bad service I Call to the reseption 5-6 times and I went downstairs at the reseption twice for a noice up from my room....and nobody nobody help noone went their to check for that terrible noice that I stay 2 nights and the one night I didnt sleep....BAD Serviceeeeeeeeeeeeee
When the staff finaly changed my room, after 3 days of complaints. 1- The pictures on the website (hotel and booking) are misleading. I booked a room that was suposed to have ocean view but did not. 2- The staff was absolutely rude in several times, from the time I asked to change rooms on (except waiters on the breakfast and one lady from the front desk). 3- All the pools in the hotel are salty (no sweet water). 4- The staff from the parking is incredibly rude and disrispectful. 5- The hotel is not prepared to receive the amount of tourists they do; I had to wait for 20 minutes every moring to have breakfast because there were not tables available (although there was another room full of tables that was not in use). To sum up, I had the worst experience and paid a lot for that.
Spacious room, outdoor jacuzzi, excellent views, Good bus services to transport us to beach and town centre. Were provided twin beds although had booked double bed. Electricity and water system failed on one occassion. Breakfast poor standard for 5 star. Bathroom compliments like soap and body lotions were not replaced everyday.
Superb staff attitude and general comfort of facilities. For price, (in early June) an extremely satisfying hotel. Overall, very good Restaurant was expensive and disappointing. Easily solved by eating elsewhere. Modern technology was lacking: public internet terminal was comedy and DVDplayer in room did not work and could not be fixed by staff.
There was very pleasant environment, great hospitality as well as many facilities such as free transportation to the centre, spa centre etc.
Great Service the staff was always very friendly...The out door area was very nice and the pool was wonderful The room is not a 4/5 star room however it was clean and we liked the view and the balcony and were comfortable
Great poolside atmosphere and food. The bar staff were always very friendly and accommodating. Great view of the water. The room itself was definitely not 5 star standard. The beds were hard and the room was small with dated decor. The location is slightly out of the main town, being about a 10 minute walk. The room was definitely overpriced for what you get, but I would stay here again, if the rate was more affordable.
the personal are very kind and nice..and the service is very good...you have a great stay in this hotel...
The staff were very profesional and the room exceeded our expectations. Amazing views! We didnt want to leave the room.
good service and facilities far from the town center
its comfortable, very nice hotel. Its not soo far from the center of the city. Perfect servise. Very good breakfast. Wonderful view!
Amazing view, nice location, nice details, friendly staff, good breakfast buffet, Manager picked us up personally from the ferry - just the overpriced rate is preventing me to recommend this hotel Size of the room: too small, size of balcony: too small, limited opening hours of restaurant, construction site in front of the hotel with works going on even on a Saturday, the price of 297 Euro per room per night is way too expensive for the value offered (even during high season, End of July), hot chocolate for breakfast charged 4,50 Euro extra(!!), walk to the city center is longer than advertised by the staff (they said 300- 400m but it's 1 km)
Hotel staff were always helpful and owner also was charming and hospitable. Breakfast was excellent. Pool area was small but looked after beautifully.
excellent staff, very friendly, and professional, very good restaurant, nice presentation, excellent sunset.very nice swimming pool nice common areas room just all right basic and quite small.
Rooms were spacious and comfortable. There was a nice view of the sea if you didn't look down There is a huge building site / reclamation in front of the hotel - trucks, noise and dust. It really spoils the view. Wi-fi although available kept dropping out which was frustrating. The hotel is a good 15 minutes walk from the town. We got the impression it was closer.
warmth and courtesy of the staff and mgmt. nice location.comfort of room internet and wi fi services in the rooms to be improved.
