Travel Blogs from Mykonos
... a nice little place called Fatos a Manos. Jonathan had some smoked salmon spaghetti and I had some kalamari. Jonathan also had the idea to order a bottle of wine because “we’re in Greece, we have to drink wine!” Well as you know, I’m not a big fan of wine and he ended up drinking pretty much the whole bottle on his own – good thing it was small! The food was so fresh and delicious and the staff were very kind and friendly (which seems to ...
... spot I regret that we did not go much earlier and stay longer. There is a path from the beach leading to a small chapel -I won't miss it the next time I am up there though!
Have in mind that there is a very small humble tavern somewhere around ….I miss the name now, but it is quite popular and its worth going there for a drink or some fresh fish (catch of the day) since the owner catches them ...
The Beauty of Eastern Pelion –
The villages of Agios Vlasios, Pinakates and Agios Georgios are not far from where we stay so we thought to drive out there this morning. What I actually plan to do is to find the opportunity to walk and cover some km. We buy our selves a newspaper, and we drive off. We pass Agios Vlasios and ...
A Visit to the Monastery of Taxiarches
The monastery is a nunnery nowadays since 1976 and it dates back from 1538. It was built over an older church of the 13th century and its wood-carved inconostasis is of great importance with remarkable work of art. Unfortunately photos are prohibited in the interior of the church and I had no idea until the nun who was taking us around noticed it and ...
... when I told her that I come from Cyprus she seemed so enthusiastic and told me that she remembers herself as a youth participating in mass demonstrations and protests for the liberation of Cyprus. She spoke with compassion and love for the heroes of EOKA (Palikarides and Grigoris Afxendiou and many more.
I managed to get one or two photos of the ...

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.
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.
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....
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!
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 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.
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.
