Historical Traveler Reviews Cavo Tagoo Mykonos
Less nice than you think
Right now, the town of Mykonos is builing a land-fill right outside of the Cavo Tagoo Hotel, so instead of seeing beautiful blue water lapping up to the elegant seawall, you see piles of dirt and dump trucks polluting the sea by dumping gargabe into it (apparently, this is how they fill in land). The road is also congested with dump trucks all day long, making walking to town very unpleasant (not to mention treacherous). And it's a *long* way to town! At least a 15 minute walk on the dump truck road, which is basically your only option. It would seem worth the extra $$ to book closer to the town itself, without the dump truck garbage dump view.
The hotel itself is nice (bar area, pool), and the included breakfast is excellent. Rooms are less nice. The furnishings are old, the bathroom is not special, and the TV doesn't really work. Further, I'm convinced that we were put into a regular double room even though we had booked a paid for a double superior room.
Stayed here 1st week in October. Still warm & sunny, but definitely end of season. As most folk say, it is a great location, and has friendly staff. Poolside breakfasts are great. Rooms are different sizes, (some bathrooms small) so ask to see a few if you're unsure. Rm 201 was good.
The "walk" into town is not practical at night : dark & no pavement, but taxis are only 2 to 4E. The KOUROS is next door, and although it was closed, we had a look around, & I think the rooms were bigger and more opulent. I'd stay there next time. Its higher above the (narrow) coast road, so you are not aware of the traffic so much, though the Tagoo is also up from the road, so traffic is not really a problem there either).
The best of the best
Every year, my husband and I visit Greece. In our plans, it is mandatory we reserve a room at the Cavo Tagoo in Mykonos for atleast 3-5 days. This is where our batteries get fully charged. From the breathtaking views of the sunset, to the rare Mykonian architecture of this beautiful hotel or should I say resort..... The one of a kind "Breakfast Buffet," the relaxing pool and bar area overlooking the wonderful Agean Sea and last but not least, the fabulous staff that always approaches us with such warmth, from the stages of Check-in all the way to Check-out making sure they have acheived their goal of excellence the "Cavo Tagoo Way." Cavo Tagoo we will see you real soon!!!
An Incredible 40th Birthday at Cavo Tagoo
I had the good fortune of celebrating my 40th birthday with my partner at this wonderful hotel this past June. I am Greek-American and have traveled to Mykonos on many occasions. However, I have never stayed at a hotel in Mykonos with such charm and such an accommodating staff. The hotel's architecture adheres to the classic Cycladic form and is only an approximate 10 minute walk to Mykonos town. We booked a suite with a sea view in the upper portion of the hotel which is nestled in a cliff. The room was bi-level with each floor having its own balcony overlooking the Aegean Sea. The sunsets were breathtaking! From our balconies, we saw the bustling town of Mykonos to our left and the neighboring Cycladic island of Tinos to our right. Wonderful vistas!!! The complimentary buffet breakfast was hearty and the waiting staff quite pleasant, especially Michalis. And the bartender at the pool bar, Nikos, made us feel like family. Nikos even gave us a private tour of the nearby archeological island of Delos during his off hours. Thank you, Nikos! The hotel atmosphere is very cosmopolitan. We met people from around the world and became good friends with some of our fellow guests (hope to see you soon Meg, Phillip and Jeremy.) All in all, I could not think of a better place to celebrate my milestone birthday. Thank you to the entire staff of Cavo Tagoo for making my birthday quite special. The complimentary bottle of wine upon our departure was a lovely touch. I plan to return again and again.
The service was great!!!!!!!!
The staff was very helpful ,the breakfast was delicious and the location is second to none!!!
We arrived in Mykonos after a very long flight from Italy...we were originally two couples but a couple of months before our trip our friend,s husband needed upcoming surgery...my husband phoned each hotel to cancel their room and at Cavoo Tagoo he wrote down the name of the young woman he spoke to to cancel their room and was very specific that we were still coming.....we were supposed to be picked up at the airport which was what they offered and e-mailed them our flight number , of course they were not there...we took a taxi to the hotel and by coincidence, the young woman at the desk was the person my husband spoke to long distance and she had no record of our room reservation ....they were totally unapolgetic and showed us a horrible room (which is all they had) it was dark and musty and miserable and only had a double bed.....they were quite rude and we asked for the manager and he would not even come out from behind his desk...couldn,t have cared a less...the only concerned person was the bell boy and we asked him where we should go and he sent us to the Hotel Belvedere and they were warm and friendly and inviting ....what a difference to Cavoo Tagoo.....I would go out of my way to make sure no-one I knew going to Mykonos would even consider going to Cavoo Tagoo......
the hotel is very nice, great location close to town, every room has a balcony overlooking the water. I found it very romantic - a couple of things to be aware of though - beds very small ( the size of a double bed ) the concierge service was not great - the young man at the desk was very polite but a little disorganized ( did not have a map of the island, could not find a phone number for the diving company we wanted ) the buffet breakfast included with the room rate was really very nice too
Not THAT good!!!
Decent hotel, overpriced for it's standards, rude Albanian Staff.
Wouldn't recommend it.
We spent 12 days there in June for our honeymoon. What a great place, relaxed, fun, close to town but far enough to be somwhat private. Great view. Rent a jeep and explore the island. Walk to downtown and cab home after too many ouzos. Great pool overlooking the water, town and the harbour. Better food than I thought woould be at a small hotel. Just as good as the best in town. Great staff, although some traces of Greek haughtiness. Just ignore them, they eventually go away.
we spent there our honey moon and really,really enjoyed it. I still dream about that week very often after a busy city day. Go and try the breakfast (nuts cake and yogurt!)

... a stroll and it's like being on a never ending mystery tour. When I eventually give up, I head downhill to the harbour where I have already marked the entrance to the one lane way which I know will lead me back to our hotel. There is no Hash (HHH) Club here, but there ought to be - no need to set a trail, just tell the pack at the on on where the beer is and let them try to find their own way through the maze. There is one exception to the ...
We eventually got a bus ride today granted it was still an annoyance. The bus team neglected to notify us that the schedule we were given two days ago has changed ... Grrr... Me not like greek buses..... Anyhow made our way just a few KM away to Anna beach and promptly set up to build some sand castles. The water was an incredible turquoise and all was good. I am trying to get ...
... and then dined in style again and a show afterwards. Lee's trip to Delos Seeing I was the one keen to visit Delos I left the others in downtown Myko and boarded the boat for the half hour ride out to the island. Having little history of the place I was at a disadvantage. This place is the most sacred place for the Greek traditions and religion. The site for some cults goes back to 1400BC. The Greek Hellenistic period 7th to 1st Centuries BC had been the ...
We slept in a bit and decided we needed some exercise to balance out the eating and drinking. I did a long walk, alone the highway, which was somewhat hazardous, while Rich hit the gym. the landscape is quite stark but the water is so clear and blue. It was very windy again, which kept me cool. My calves are going to hurt tomorrow, I was up and down many hills. The highway is, sadly, littered with debris and trash, I was overwhelmed by the amount.
Slept till 10:30 walked down to the beach for breakfast. Then changed into my swimsuit, came back, and laid in the sun till 12. At noon half of us headed out to get the quad bikes, while the other half waited at the villa because they were all going to be the passengers while our group were drivers. The first two places were in walking distance and we got 10 or 11 quads there. We doubled up and headed to the farther away spot. On the way there we got to a roundabout and ...
