There is no denying that the Alex hotel isn't a luxury hotel. Nevertheless, it's not uncomfortable either. It looks more like a boarding house than a hotel. Run by a Greek family, you may feel that the mother of the family comes across rather temperamental but in reality, she is rather nice. The amenities in general could do with some renovation, especially the decoration of the guestrooms. However, that would mean that the place would somewhat lose some of its charm...

    Location

    The Hotel Alex is located in the small village of Tourlos. The close surroundings are rather poor, but the hotel does have an unrestricted view of the Aegean sea. Mykonos town centre is 1,000 metres away and the airport 2 mi away. Allow 10 minutes to drive to the airport and five minutes to get to the town centre.

    Accommodation 5.70 /10

    Built on five levels, the 35 guestrooms including 7 suites are spread out in small buildings, the architecture of which is typical of the Cyclades. Simple as far as their comfort is concerned, the standard rooms are a little gloomy. Once the shutters are open, the natural light does brighten up the atmosphere a little. The amenities consist of sparse elements of vintage wood furniture and twin beds and, although outdated, there is air-conditioning, a small balcony and a television set. As for the bathrooms, they are more akin to a broom cupboard. Their facilities include a shower, a sink and a toilet. Hospitality products are also provided. You should remember to ventilate the room frequently as the smell of humidity settles quickly. Note that the suites come with a lounge area and a separate bedroom.

    Overview 5.20 /10

    When you arrive at the Hotel Alex, you will see that in reality, it's a boarding house, which has already had its heyday. It is no longer possible to say that its decoration is of today's taste. The ambiance is a little dull but its decor is authentic. At the reception desk, the lady owner is friendly but not very obliging, however once you have checked in, the atmosphere is more relaxed. The hotel's amenities are restricted, except for the restaurant and pool, which is well kept, but rather a little desolate, situated on one of the higher levels of the hotel. It is lined with a few plastic deckchairs and two canvas parasols. And that is that, there isn't any more to see!

    Food and drink 5.70 /10

    The only restaurant is above the reception - it is decorated with seashells. The terrace with a view of the sea is much more pleasant however. Breakfast is served as a continental buffet from 8:00am to 10:30am. As for lunch and dinner, they are served a la carte from 12:00pm to 4:00pm and from 7:00pm to 11:00pm. The cuisine is of good quality. The dishes are traditional and what's more, served as they would be at home!

    Beach

    The Alex hotel is not on the seafront but close to the new port of Mykonos. You will nevertheless easily find pretty beaches on the island, such as the beaches of Ornos, Platis Gialos and Elia. You will never have to go very far on the island - a slow drive will take you 20 minutes to reach the beach furthest away from the hotel. The beaches of Paradise and Super Paradise are particularly busy in the high season.

      The Mykonos Theoxenia is open since 1996. The hotel accommodates families but more than 90% of the clientele is composed of couples. Its very modern decoration gives a certain style to the place but it exudes a rather cold beauty. Those who are looking for animation will be interested in moving to another place.

      • Location 9.99

      The Manoulas Beach is a little hotel next to the pretty beach of Agios Ioannis and has all you need for an enjoyable stay: friendly staff, pleasant communal areas, and direct access to the beach. However, given that it has little in the way of facilities, guests opting to spend their holidays here come more than anything else in search of peace, quiet, and relaxation, none of which call for swanky features! Although the hotel has been open since 1982, it does not show its age. Management makes the most of the annual closure over the winter season to carry out any necessary renovations.

      A member of the select Relais & Châteaux club, the Myconian Ambassador comes with outstanding credentials, the reasons for which rapidly become apparent as you discover the hotel's facilities. The service is of high quality and the setting is magnificent... Its elevated location affords an unobstructed view of the Aegean sea, but unfortunately this means it's not next to the beach. Don't worry though, the one at Platis Gialos is just a few steps away... The establishment is ideal for couples, but families are offered the warmest of welcomes as well.
