About Mykonos

By day the bright sun gleaming off the ocean and white architecture makes Mykonos glitter, but by evening it glitters with the coloured lights of fun. This is one of the best places to stay in the Cyclades if you love buzz, and our gurus are here to help you find the best places to stay in Mykonos. We have a great range of properties from the seriously luxurious to the more traditional.

What Not To Miss

  • The Church of Paraportiani enjoys a wonderful setting just outside Chora. Be sure to bring along a camera and take some great snaps, especially at sunset!
  • Wander along the narrow and cobbled Matoyianni Street, which is filled with wonderful boutique shops. A buzzy and bustling area with a real mishmash of stores.
  • The Folklore Museum is a great spot to learn all about the island. Filled with an eclectic variety of artefacts bringing to life Mykonos's history and culture, it's a lovely place to visit.
  • Spend an afternoon at Platis Gialos Beach. With a number of super restaurants and sunbeds on offer for €10 a day, it's a top place to take the whole family.
  • Head off on a day trip to the nearby island of Delos, once the religious and political centre of the Cyclades. Legend has it that this was Apollo and Artemis's birthplace, but it was abandoned in the 19th century and now the only thing remaining is a series of ruins elucidating the island's rich history.

Don't forget that this little Greek island is incredibly busy during the peak summer months. So if you want to guarantee a room in one of the best places to stay in Mykonos during July or August you'll need to be very organised and book well ahead.

For Lux

Not too long ago this island was a premier resort for gay travellers, so there's no shortage of camp-ish luxury. Both clubs and accommodation. But the celebrity jet-setters who currently favour the island have design-chic-ed up some of the luxury.

  • For money's-no-object lux, the Kivotos Club Hotel is the best place to stay on Mykonos. They send a limo to collect you, and their services include 'private yacht rental' as well as a cigar and caviar bar.
  • Mykonos Blu also offers serious luxury. Stay in a private villa with your own private pool, and mini-garden; and cap off your evenings in their 'long hours' cocktail bar open pretty much all the time. Also one of the best places to stay in Mykonos for honeymooners.
  • For traditional glamour, one of the best places to stay is Mykonos Theoxenia. It's 60s-tastic with its architecture and colour scheme - like being a James Bond glamour-puss!
  • The upmarket Bill And Coo offers wonderfully chic whitewashed accommodation. Their minimalist and spacious suites come with lovely balconies offering sea views, whilst there's also a Mediterranean restaurant.
  • Cavo Tagoo is a 5* stay right by the sea. This property's accommodation features four poster beds and balconies, as well as there being an infinity pool and extensive spa facilities.
  • Grace Mykonos is an all-white glamour spot with glorious sea views. Providing a variety of suites with private balconies and some with hot tubs, there's also a lovely pool as well as a spa. What's more, their Grace restaurant is one of Mykonos' best!
  • Santa Marina Resort & Villas boasts its own private beach area, two infinity pools, two restaurants and three bars! This 5* spot features elegant beach-chic accommodation, and you can also make use of their on site beauty salon and boutique stores.
  • Kensho Boutique Hotel expertly combines luxury with traditional Cycalic design, offering elegant minimalist rooms (some of which even have their own pool!). Just a minute away from the beach, this is a wonderfully romantic stay.

Discover the REAL Charm of Mykonos

Beneath the glitz and busy throngs, Mykonos still has a lot of charm. Once one of the barest, poorest islands in the Cyclades, it has adapted to popularity without losing its traditions. Mykonos Town's layout and bougainvillea covered architecture make it easy to feel lost in a Greek island dream. And the famous windmills are more than just Kodak-fodder.

  • The Semeli Hotel is one of the best places to stay in Mykonos to feel the island's real pulse. This traditional mansion, and surrounding village of villas, stands stylishly aloof, but is close enough to enjoy local tavernas and explore the old town.
  • Another of the best places to stay in Mykonos if you want peace as well as parties, the Hotel Elena is a simple but charming pension in the heart of the village.
  • Tharroe of Mykonos is a boutique hilltop property overlooking Mykonos Town. Their rooms are chic yet understated and you can enjoy a range of treatments at the Calypso Spa. A top spot.
  • The minimalist Ostraco Suites (located in the hills away from the buzz) has everything you might need for a holiday in the sun - whitewashed rooms with all the mod cons, private balconies, a lovely pool and a restaurant serving up organic Greek grub.

Best places to stay in Mykonos for Fun in the Sun

If you want to relax and recharge in the sun by day so you can eat, drink and dance all night then these beach-side beauties are some of the best places to stay in Mykonos.

  • Did we mention Mykonos Blu's private beach is one of the best on Mykonos? With a spa, sauna, two level infinity pool and private hot tubs to boot, this is a wondrously relaxing spot.
  • Archipelagos features traditionally Mykonian style with plenty of blues and whites, whilst you'll love its location right by the Kalo Livadi Beach. With a spa and Greek restaurant as well, this is a lovely spot.
  • The eco-friendly Rocabella Mykonos offers chic whitewashed rooms with spectacular views of Chora. Unwind by the spa or pool before enjoying Cycladic food at the restaurant. Plus, Agios Stefanos beach is right around the corner!
  • Myconian Imperial Resort is located right on the beach, providing contemporary chic accommodation with splendid views of the Aegean. This luxurious spot boasts three swimming pools, two bars and gourmet cuisine - what more could you ask for?
  • De.Light Boutique Hotel ticks all the right boxes, just 5 minutes from the beach and offering simple yet stylish rooms. Soak up the sun whilst enjoying a cocktail from the pool bar and forget about all your worries!
  • San Giorgio is a chic rustic retreat, offering whitewashed accommodation and a lovely pool area. What's more, guests get VIP membership passes to the Paradise Club including a shuttle service to take you there and back. Perfect for combining sun with fun.

For a holiday villa or apartment

  • Perhaps you've decided that your needs are better served with a self-catering option. In that case, we recommend you check out the wide range with our online partner, Booking.com.

Travel Information

  • Visitors can fly to Mykonos Airport, located in Chora, about 4 km southeast of Mykonos Town. Easyjet offers direct flights from Luton and Gatwick, but if you're coming from Edinburgh then that'll require a connection.
  • Most hotels offer transfer services, however if this isn't the case, there are plenty of taxis outside the terminal to take you to the centre of town for about €8.
  • Alternatively, during high season you can take a rather infrequent bus which runs to Fabrika station at a cost of €1.60.
  • With most people coming to Mykonos for the nightlife and the good weather, it's probably best to visit from June to September (with the average temperature above 23°C). Be warned though that this is peak season, so expect to pay more for accommodation.
  • The shoulder seasons (April, May and October) are the best combination of decent weather and cheap accommodation. That said, there's not nearly as much on as during the summer months.
  • For car hire prices, we recommend you visit our online partner Holiday Autos.
