... cash in around midnight, but I struggled through. And at the very least our hotel and time on the beach was amazing.
On another note, I would like to apologize for the lack of pictures and request everyone take a moment of silence to remember 'Casio Exilim 28mm Wide Optical' digital camera, who passed away in the line of duty during the Mykonos trip due to an unretractable lens error.

Nathan and I reflected, during our long sunset walk on the beach following dinner, on how we have accidentally been doing that this entire trip.

This turned out to be a pleasant stopover. After BS arrived we explored the waterfront and discovered a great bakery where we bought a supply of bread and cookies the next morning.

Historical Traveler Reviews Deliades Hotel Ornos
Exactly what we needed...
We wanted a small & quiet place to relax with the beach & good food. It's exactly what we had!! A spectacular view of Ornos Beach, beautiful and big room. We recommand to take half pension, the food is good, portions ENORMOUS! and Nikos will do everything to please you! We want to keep this place secret for us... But it was so nice that we feel that we have to share it!!
We have spent 2 weeks in Greece and this was the best hotel we've stayed in. To be honest, this was the best hotel we have ever stayed in, not only in Greece, but anywhere else. The hotel was magnificent and we have never experienced such incredible service before. It was so lovely that it was hard to drag ourselves away from it. It's rated as a 4 stars, but it should be 5.
We had an apartment with 2 rooms and a bathroom (all huge) and a beautifull terrace with an amazing view (all rooms have views to the sea). Easily you can sleep 5 people in (sofa bed included in the living area).
Breakfast is lovely and is served by the pool. Excellent value.
Hotel Deliades is located in the quiet area of Ornos, Mykonos. If you want to have a relaxing, quiet vacation, and still be close to Mykonos Town, then this is the hotel for you. The hotel is very clean and welcoming. The staff are very helpful and accommodating. The rooms are clean (I think housekeeping came in twice a day), very spacious (my room on the first floor was), and it has a spectacular view of the rolling hills and of Ornos beach. Hotel Deliades is the best hotel I stayed at in my entire stay in the Greek Isles!!! I loved eating breakfast at the pool area with the view of the beach. The pool is not big, but who needs the pool if you have the sea to swim in, right???
One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in
This hotel was by far my favorite hotel of my two-week trip in Greece. The staff was incredibly friendly and so helpful!! They went out of their way for us at every possible opportunity. The views from the hotel are stunning and the pool overlooks the water. The rooms were spacious and bright and had enormous balconies to hang out on. I have stayed in five star hotels all over the world and have never been treated so wonderfully as I was at the Deliades. If you get a chance to go to Mykonos you should look no further than this hotel. I had the time of my life!
As I have started to use this site extensively to plan our upcoming trip to Italy, I thought I would go back and review some of the places we stayed at in Greece 2 years ago.
I was quite surprised when we were given our room at this hotel. After climbing many stairs, we were welcomed to an overly large room. The room reminded me of a studio apartment with an additional one bedroom. Enough to sleep four people. There were also two large bathrooms. One with a shower and one with a tub. There was a great view from the patio/balcony which included chairs and a table.
Now this is a 4 star that should be 5
Now being an hotellier myself...I find myself sometimes focusing on the bed side of things and tring to find the most minute detail to beach about...
well this hotel...I just loved it...beautiful in haestetics..welcoming and warm....rooms almost all with a view to die for and the most esqusit service i have ever recieved
Must stay here...And Mykonos it's just fantastic..
Great Quiet Hotel, Superb Service, Good Loaction
Deliades is an excellent hotel ten minutes from Mykonos Town by bus. The buses run every hour. The hotel is 2 minutes from Ornos Beach and the bus stop. The hotel arranged to pick us up and drop us off at the Port. Deliades is an oasis on this highly commercialized island. The rooms are excellent with a great view of Ornos Beach. They provide an excellent buffet breakfast and complete restaurant facilities. The staff was friendly and the service was superb. We will definitely be back!!!
We stayed in a studio for 4 nights with a spacious bedroom - 2 beautiful bathrooms- a nice living room area and a nice deck with views. A lot of attention to detail in the studio. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and make us feel welcome. They were accommodating in every way.
Early summer in Mykonos
We enjoyed our stay in the Deliades during the first week of June. The hotel is about 3 km outside Mykonos town--rent a moped and it is no problem getting around. The room that we booked over the web was more of a spacious suite: with a small bedroom off the main room, a sitting area, modern bathroom and large balcony overlooking Ornos bay. The breakfast buffet was extensive and we almost felt as though we disappointed the breakfast staff every day by passing on their offers of eggs! The entire staff was extraordinarily friendly and helpful, when our taxi did not arrive in time to get us to the port for our ferry, they took us. A great hotel on its own but their courtesy makes it memorable.
