      Historical Traveler Reviews San Marco Hotel Mykonos

      It was paradise

      from

      We stayed at this hotel for three days. Our room was well-appointed and very clean. We overlooked the bay from our huge private terrace. The bus shuttle must be improved because there was a printed schedule into town - about 7 times during the day. Elena and Katarina (front desk) couldn't be nicer and more accomodating.

      Fantastic hotel in Mykonos

      from

      We spent 2 weeks in Greece, on tour, and by far the best hotel was the San Marco in Mykonos. The bathtub/shower was BIG, there was patio with table and chairs, a big/spacious room, and a free shuttle into town a few times a day. All the staff was friendly. Wonderful breakfast included. Nice pool, across the street from the ocean. The entire property is designed to be on a mild-grade slope, so you always have a great view of the ocean. The gazebo was beautiful! It was so relaxing on the island. If you're going to Greece, go to Mykonos, and if you go to Mykonos, stay at the San Marco!

      Been there, done that, going back!

      from

      Being a Greek-American, my first trip to Greece was about 4 years ago. Mykonos was our first destination before departing on our cruise of the Greek Islands. We spent three nights at the San Marco. The staff were so very polite and helpful and the hotel itself was beautifully understated. The rooms were quaint, quiet, and relaxing. The pool was clear, refreshing, although saltwater. The food was excellent! The hotel is far from town but this is a plus I think! No loud noise and no cars driving by. The hotel has no real beach for guests but the view from the hotel is spectacular! I loved waking up every morning and looking out over the crystal blue water and realizing I was in paradise. Matter of fact, I am considering going back to the San Marco for my upcoming honeymoon. I think it has just the right ambiance for this type of trip.

      I highly recommend the San Marco!

      We were very misled

      from

      We were very misled about the San Marco, by the brochure and especially by the agent at Homeric Tours in the U.S. Investigation after we arrived revealed that the reason probably is that Homeric Tours OWNS the San Marco! The hotel is completely isolated, and a long drive from town in an infrequent hotel shuttle with inadequate capacity. The "beach" mentioned in the literature is a quarter mile away and has no sand whatsoever, only large rocks. (It should be noted, however, that the rooms are large and nice and the staff is pleasant.)

      Pleasant, but very quiet

      from

      I spent four days at the lovely San Marco Hotel. My room was a suite, so it was airy, air conditioned and tastfully decorated in muted greens and blues. There was a large terrace from which I could see the countryside and the sea.

      I ate lunch there once. The food was good , but expensive even by Greek standards. Nine euro for a salad plus another euro for water. Drinks were more reasonable and were available by the pool or the inside lobby bar. They were generous and made with fresh fruit right before your eyes.

      A major drawback was the distance from town. A taxi cost anywhere from 5-7 euro each way. The hotel provides a shuttle, but the schedule is very spotty, and it stops running early.

      The fitness room is a joke with it's archaic bike and decrepit treadmill. There is no internet lounge, but the staff were very pleasant and accommodating about letting guests use their main computer to check email. The staff was accommodating, in general.

      The pool was large and beautiful, but outside of that there was little to do.

      This is a great hotel for those who come to Mykonos to relax or perhaps, honeymoon.

      Amazing Place

      from

      I just got back from spending a week at the San Marco Hotel in Mykonos and I was so impressed. My boyfriend and I had by far one of the best rooms in the hotel, the verandah was huge and overlooked the ocean and the entire resort. We had tons of privacy, as we were at the very top of the hill/resort. The staff was wonderful and so pleasant. While the restaurant was a bit pricey, we found that they had some of the best quality food on the island, considering we ate just about everywhere. It was complete and total paradise, would definitely stay there anytime!!!

      My favorite vacation destination!

      from

      Every summer, I visit the San Marco Hotel in Mykonos. Being Greek-American, I've traveled to Greece my whole life, but I've never had such an amazing experience as I have had at the San Marco Hotel in Mykonos. The rooms are huge, all with seaviews. The hotel's staff is extremely friendly and the food is delicious. The hotel is about 5 minutes outside of Mykonos town, which is great because if you stay in the town, you would never get a good night's sleep with all the loud partying that goes on all night long. Plus, the free shuttle bus is so convenient. I can't wait to get back again this summer, especially with the Summer Olympics being in Athens this year! I use Homeric Tours every year I travel to Greece and have never had a problem with them.

      They've been around for so many years and are very well-known in the Greek-American community.

      Paradise!

      from

      I loved this place so much, I cried the night before I left. The rooms are great and arranged for maximum privacy. The people who work there are friendly and helpful. It was just the right distance from Mykonos Town. It was easy to get there by shuttle bus or taxi, but when you'd had enough fun and shopping, it was a haven to return to. I'm planning to go back!

      Decent stay at San Marco

      from

      I was relatively pleased with my stay at San Marco. The front desk staff were extremely helpful. Location is very isolated and relaxing, great seaviews, but if you want to visit Myconos town and don't make it to the shuttle that runs every 1.5-2 hours, you'll need a taxi, and the wait for the taxi in town for the return trip could be around 45 minutes. We had to change the room, first room was dark, shower and the bed were broken. Second room was decent size, with a huge terrace, semi-leaky shower and not very comfortable bed, very thin bad quality mattress. Great pool, average buffet style food. And like the previous reviewer, had a horrible charter flight experience with Homeric tours, although it's not that relevant to this review.

      Love it!

      from

      This hotel is lovely. I stayed there on Homeric 's Mykonos special, which was an excellent value...except for the flight. That's another story, however. The hotel is quite a distance ouside of town, but has a free van service every one and a half hours or so. The pool is wonderful, and its isolated location close to the sea makes it very relaxing. The rooms are large with a large terrace facing the sea and the grounds are landscaped with lots of geraniums. The bathrooms are large with lots of dark green "marble." I enjoyed my stay very much. The only minus was a very late arrival (not the hotel's fault) at which some Americans had the bar play some very offensive rap music very loudly. I was not amused and let them know it.

I decided to go ahead and book the flights for Sunday (yesterday), and fortunately was able to survive a grand total of 6 flights in less than 36 hours (I had a connection in Istanbul on Saturday evening).

      We took the little red car and headed off South to look at some temple ruins and some of the beaches. Demeter's Temple ruins were from 500BC with an amazing backdrop of mountains.

      A bit further on we came across a lovely bakery in a little village and bought 2 bread rolls, a piece of milk custard cake and two small yummy cakes. It made us feel better about the bag of motley fruit! ...

      ... I can confidently say; Airport:2, Alice and Emma: 0.

      We woke in our hostel in Rome at 7am to meet Ella and Thea at 7:30am who were also departing for Australia this morning from the same airport. Stumbling out the door we were headed for the airport and good effort on our behalf, or so we thought. Felt like we wandered around every part of Termini before we found where we needed to be, the bus depot. We parted with Ella and Thea at about 7:45am as they had time to head ...

      We’ve noticed you can get pizza and pasta here in Greece like Italy but we are enjoying our chicken so far.

      After dinner we were looking for an atmosphere a little more livelier than the restaurant so we followed the whooping and hollering of the restaurant next door and went ...
