"Could be more excellent with minor updates"
We were a group of 13 girls at a bachelorette party. Some of us stayed at the villa, some shared the rooms in the main building. The night room service in the hotel is awful, they just had a pizza, which tasted like the supermarket frozen one! Of course Mykonos is a party place and you could expect people wanting to eat at night! The villa was a bit old, especially the smell and the air conditioner. Although the view was amazing and our butler was very nice and helpful. My girls also complained about the room size. Thats it is very expensive for the low season, being so small. I personally loved the beach. It is nice to chill there before going to parties! You really have the potential to be better! Please update and upgrade minor things!
"Amazing Views, Luxurious Rooms, Lovely All Around!"
we went here in late September and were there in the second to the last week of their season before they close for winter. They double upgraded us to a sea view deluxe suite right on the water! The staff were helpful and friendly. This property is a bit far from Mykonos town, but they do have a shuttle. The shuttle has strange hours, though - so you may have to arrange your own transport. it is very quiet but you can walk to Ornos for a little more life! The breakfast buffet is amazing and has a huge selection of hot and cold dishes - plus, they will make you am omelet or something else if you can't ind what you want on the buffet - but that is highly unlikely! Also, free flowing Mimosas and Bloody Mary's - highly recommend to get the room rate with the breakfast included.
"BEAUTIFUL VIEW, LUXURY AMENITIES, AND WONDERFUL LOCATION SPG HOTEL"
I haven't write a review for long time but this hotel make my hand move back to keyboard. First of all, it's my first time to Mykonos. I am looking for a beautiful hotel offer all the thing I wish for. It has to be in a good location, not too far from town/airport, breathtaking view, luxury amenities, great services, with infinity pool, nearby beach and free car parking, of course the room should be very nice not dated. As SPGP ambassador member, I was so lucky to get upgrade to their beautiful Seaview suites. The size of the room is not super big but for sure it's bigger than all other hotel in Mykonos. The hotel interior designer is nicely done. Fine finished and i love the decoration make me really feel like a luxury resort. Bathroom is amazing, huge shower can fit 10 people inside, with beautiful marble, stone with double basins. Separate toilet. Bed is super King size and very comfortable. The main feature of the room is the view, walking out to a balcony facing to an unbreakable view is something I am looking for in Mykonos. You can welcome the sunrise every morning, Greece blue sky, listening to the sound of Ocean and cruise pass by. My room is facing to the main beautiful infinitely pool. It is very quiet and peaceful. I can't ask for more. It's just like a paradise and heaven. Santa Marina hotel have all the thing on my wish lists. It also surprise me at every corner. It has the WOW factor. The flowers, trees and smell of the fresh air everyday make you feel like in a Oasis. The view is priceless seriously. The hotel is located right above a private beach (belongs to the hotel) facing to the a beautiful East side Greece Ocean. You can have lunch, cocktail and dinner until 1am. We had lunch at the buddha bar. Food are excellent. Prices are reasonable because I understand it's a luxury hotel with such view and amenities. Definitely worth it. There are plenty of beach chairs and space you can chill. Also there is a small pool for kids. Staff will provide you towel. Breakfast is great. For me to rate a great breakfast. Fresh orange juice is a must. Breakfast offer fresh juice, free bubbles, eggs, cold cut, all kind of fruits, bread, greek salad, hot dishes and you can also order the style of egg you like. It's mixed of American and Greek style. Get a table by the pool is just standard. Services are awesome and friendly. Room service and housekeeper did a very good job. They also have turn down service in the evening. Car parking is free and easy to access but you need to drive pass 24 hours security gate before you drive up. For me to drive to downtown is only 15 mins. There is a small town nearby you can reach there by car in 3 mins. Mykonos is a small island. Basically no need a car unless you need to go around to different beach. I would suggest you check out super paradise beach, paradise beach or the north side of island. Hotel also offer free pick up. We arrive early and stay at other hotel. They would come to pick us up from other hotel with a mini bus. Also sent us to the ferry port on the last day. Overall Santa Marina is the best SPG category 7 luxury resort I have visited so far. I would definitely return again. Thank you so much!
One of the best hotels we have stayed at. We picked the Santa Marina for a week long get away in September. It didn't hurt that the weather was perfect. But at the hotel everything was just plain easy. The service was exceptional throughout our stay. We hung out in one of the cabana's by the pool just above the beach. We couldn't move without someone asking us if we needed something. The food in the Buddha Bar was exceptional. We tried one restaurant in town which was highly rated and very disappointing. After that we trusted in Buddha, and they delivered. Great menu choices and everything was exceptional. (One added bonus, the WIFI was exceptionally fast and the signal was consistent in every area of the hotel.
I have visit lots of resorts and have stayed in the hotel of different levels, but Santa Marina is one of the best not only because of perfect location, excelent quality of the rooms and the whole infrastructure, but also because it has a soul due to very helpful and friendly people working there. Especially Sia and Christy, who helped me a lot during my stay there. And of course the Budha bar... Its absolutely amzing place! You can come there for lunch, dinner, just for several drinks and for chillin, any time its perfect.
