Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Myconian Resort & Thalasso Spa Center Mykonos
Keine 5 Sterne wert
Dieses Hotel verdient keine 5 Sterne, nicht nach dem amerikanischen, asiatischen, südamerikanischen usw. Standard. Das Personal machte nicht das wahr, was Sie versprachen. Die Zimmer sind ekelig, die Wanne hatte überall Schimmel. Das Frühstücksbüffet war ok aber der Orangensaft war immer sehr warm. Amerikaner werden nicht besonders gut behandelt und der Spa war auch nicht gut. Wir hatten eine Massage gekauft und dann wurde von uns verlangt, dass wir Trinkgeld geben, was ich sehr unverschämt fand. Alles in allem gibt es bessere Hotels fürs Geld.
The setting could not be more gorgous for the Royal Myconian. We had a beautiful view off our deck of the ocean. This hotel was the only place we stayed where the staff was very nice and helpful. You ask them a question and they will find it out for you. The bad part was the huge walk up the hill from the beach. I mean huge. Also, Elia beach is not the most hoppin' place in the world. I would probably stay closer to Paradise beach next time. A good relaxing spot though, the hotel was very good.
We returned two months ago from a fantastic week in Royal Myconian. The staff are fantastic.
The Royal is in a great location on the beach and it was worth to have a room with sea view!
When we go back again I think it will be earlier in the year because the weather was not as nice as during the summer. Anyways we enjoyed very much the Thalasso and Spa Center. You must definitely do as much Thalassotherapy as possible......just perfect
Not a 5 star
This is not a 5 star by any standard including American, Asian South American etc.. The staff does not follow up on what they say they will do to help you. The rooms are gross, the tub has mold all over it. The breakfast buffet was all right but the orange juice was always hot. They do not treat Americans especially well and the Spa was not good. We had a massage and then they demanded the tip which I thought was rude. Overall, there are better hotels out there for the money.
Not bad at all
As most reviewers have said, Royal Myconian is not 5 star. But its a nice set up, with a great view and nice pool area. My wife and I stayed there as part of our honeymoon through the Greek Isles two years ago. We didn't view it as a destination resort, but just a place to stay while we were on Mykonos, and therefore weren't expecting top of the line luxury. I'll add we paid a very reasonable price through our travel agency, so that factored into our expectation level as well.
Rooms are clean and the view from the rooms are amazing. At first we were put in a room that did not have an ocean view, but we requested a change and the hotel complied without problem. If we weren't able to change rooms the tone of this review would be alot more negative.
There is a beach that you have to walk down a hill to get to, and it is a little steep but not that bad (it wasn't an issue for us). There is a great outdoor restaurant at the beach, which is where we ate whenever we didn't go to downtown Mykonos (more choices, very reasonable prices, and you are right on the beach).
We did eat breakfast at the hotel (buffet set up) each morning which was fine. Nothing fancy, but lots of choices and well made.
There is a shuttle every day to downtown Mykonos, about a 15-20 minute ride. We took the shuttle some of the time, and taxis some of the time, not expensive going back and forth.
We didn't use the spa, but we did use the gym, which I was pleasantly surprised to find was pretty large with lots of new equipment. You will be able to do your full workout routine.
Service was fine. My wife and I are very low maintenance people, we found the staff nice and attentive.
Overall we were very happy with the Royal Myconian. I felt like it was above average for a typical hotel on the island (well maintained, clean, somewhat modern). Again, we are low maintenece, and weren't looking for a destination resort, but rather a nice place to stay for a few days.
Fine, but not a five star
I just spent few days at the Royal Myconian and as I expected I was quite disappointed.
This hotel should be considered a three star (by european standards).
The position is nice with a good view on the bay, the swimmingpool seems to be very old and not very well cared and finally the rooms are quite simple without all the details that you could expect.
The spa (that I didn't use) smelled, and didn't look very clean.
What more can I say.....maybe it's better to find another hotel....there are so many in the island....
You need to know what to excpect in different parts of the world
I stayed at the Royal Myconian three years ago when it had just opened I enjoyed my stay because I knew what to expect ,there are not many five star hotels in the world ,for instance Philadelphia Pa. wich has both a Ritz Carlton and a Four Seasons hotels,neither hotel is a five star, in fact there is no five star hotel in Phila. another example is Apple Vacations five golden apple rating, it is not a five star hotel! my previous stay in Myconos I stayed at Grecotel Myconos Blue ,the rates there have gone from 200 euros a night to 700 euros a night because Julio Inglesias and his buddies started staying there,both hotels are very nice ,to expect French five star service in Mykonos is unreasonable,the views are magnificant and they are among some of the finest hotels in Greece,iv stayed in many hotels in Greece, and the Caribean they dont have five star, but they have the sea!
Not as great as expected
The Royal Myconian is in fact a beautiful hotel, but def not up to the standards of a 5 star hotel in the United States. My husband and I went there for our honeymoon, expecting excellent service, food and accomodations. Meanwhile we recieved mediocre of all of the above.
The concierge was very accomadating, while the wait staff, especially the men looked down at us, I guess b/c we were American. We were not treated nicely by them at all and did not feel welcome.
The room looks gorgeous from a far, but had a dirty feel to it once inside. I had to wear flip flops in the shower. The shower was clogged, therefore, overflowed every time we used it. The air in the room was musty, as was the blanket in the closet.
As for the restuarnt, the breakfast was okay and dinner was pretty good, although extremely over priced for what we were ordering.
One last thing that they do NOT tell you in the website is that the pools, including the private pools, do not have fresh water, it is salt water from the ocean. It is overly salted and burns your eyes and a thick white residue is left on your skin once you are dry.
All in all, it was nice, but def NOT a 5 star hotel, 3 star possibly pushing a 4 star.....
Definitely not a five star
The Royal Mykonian is touted as a five star hotel. It isn't. After seeing our original room, complete with hair all over the floor and the most uncomfortable bed, we upgraded our room to a suite in the hope that things would get a little better. They did, but not by much. A finished room service plate, complete with ketchup blob, and two half empty glasses of freddocino remained in the hallway by our room for three days! We could hear every word uttered in the hallway from our room as well as the high-heeled walker in the room above. Tile adhesive remained on the tops of the floor tiles--at least i hope that is what it was! Their "internet service" was limited to one computer in the lobby which was out of service the entire 5 days we were there. In spite of all of this, we did end up having a decent stay at the hotel.
The terrace off of our room was quite nice with a great view of the pool area and Aegean. The pool area is really nice with comfortable lounge chairs, although if you are going to rank as a five star resort, you should splurge on glassware (instead of water spotted plastic) in the pool restaurant/bar. Breakfasts were quite good. If we were not expecting true "five star" quality and treatment, this hotel would have been pretty good, but as we were, we were disappointed.
Beautiful place to stay in Mykonos
Beautiful place. Georgeous pool. Room had shuddered "french" doors to a patio overlooking the beach. Whirlpool in the bathroom. The best included breakfast I've ever seen with tons of choices, sea views and champagne. one negative: VERY steep walk from beach to hotel, a definate work out.

... Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale. A narrow cobble stone street, which winds its way upwards with quaint stores lining the street. There were dogs and children playing and of course the cats were sleeping. We saw locals in the square sipping coffee, while dusk settled in and the air cooled. It was quite surreal. How any tourists ever find this place is beyond me. It was simply spectacular!

Just as the last of the passengers were departing (with cars still coming down the exit ramp at the same time), our shed full of people were unleashed, and off we went, hurried along again by the crew, ensuring the shortest possible turnaround time for the ferry. As soon we were onboard it was a scene of unmitigated but energetic chaos - unintelligible announcements echoed through the hold, as did several few members ...

So, we finally made it to the airport, flew to Rome with our heads bobbing sleepily all the way. We had a 6 hour layover in the Rome airport...but hey, I found a juice bar! We headed from Rome to Nice, France. We were both so exhausted. Lugging our , well, 'luggage' around has been one of the hardest parts. Our backs ache and our shoulders get strained, but that's just part of our experience I guess. I'll update you on Nice in the next post...love you all!
