Located a few miles north of the centre of Mykonos, the Princess of Mykonos offers very refined decoration and setting. Mostly for a young clientele enjoying both going out and seaside vacations.
The hotel is located on the edge of Agios Stefanos, a few hundred feet from the Kastro hotel. Alike the latter, it overlooks the village of Agios Stefanos and has a view over the Aegean Sea. A view which is unfortunately not impregnable as evidenced by the adjacent buildings under construction. Mykonos' downtown area is located 2 miles away and the airport 2.5 miles away from the hotel. Careful, the hotel has no parking lot.
The Princess of Mykonos, despite its proximity to the beach of Agios Stefanos, is not particularly suitable for families. Its services (restaurant open until 3.00am, room service) and its luxury setting make it a hotel attended mostly by young couples wishing to enjoy both the charm of this beautiful hotel and the pleasures offered by the festive downtown of Mykonos.
The architecture follows the style of the Cyclades and decoration is undoubtedly the highlight of this hotel built in 1991. The 38 luxury bungalow-rooms (including some suites with living room, open kitchen, sofas, a music centre, etc.) are arranged on 2 levels around the beautiful seawater swimming pool (around 646 square feet) and its pool bar. Elegant (but small) lobby and lounge area with antique furniture, pottery, sculptures and luxury shop. The hotel also has a small sauna and a steam bath.
The furniture made of wood and rattan, designer lamps, the mixture of bright and hot colours, the bungalow rooms, suites and apartments (most of them have seaview) do not unsuit with the general refinement of the place. Satellite TV (with a score of channels), radio, direct dial telephone, air conditioning and a mini-bar are provided in all rooms. Bathrooms with showers or baths.
The restaurant serves - à la carte - Italian cuisine of good quality. You must therefore replace the mezzes and other "papoutsakis" with specialties of pasta (with seafood, in particular), grilled meats or more classic salads (with shrimps). The restaurant is small (a dozen tables indoors), but beautifully decorated and above all, open in the evening after 7.00pm... until 3.00am for late sleepers.
Although the Princess of Mykonos is not next to the sea, the beach, in the little village of Agios Stefanos to the north of Mykonos, is not too far away. It is covered in sand and provides a pleasant setting in which to relax. Nothing is ever too far away on the island and there are other accessible beaches nearby, such as Ornos, Platis Gialos, and Elia. At an easy pace it should take 20 minutes at the very most to reach the furthest of these. Paradise beach and Super Paradise beach are particularly busy in high season.
