Greece › Mykonos › Honeymoon Hotels

What is the best place to stay in Mykonos for a honeymoon?
There are many awesome places to stay in Mykonos but my favorite is Mykonos Town. It’s got the most energy and activity, tons of restaurants and shopping, and the best nightlife. Staying at one of the Mykonos beaches is also appealing, and it’s a short bus ride (about 15 minutes) between most of the top beaches and the shops, nightlife, and restaurants of Mykonos Town. The beach towns also have restaurants and beach clubs with music and a party vibe. But if you want action and activity then best to be based in Mykonos Town.

Hi Dave! My wife and I are coming to Mykonos for a honeymoon in mid-July and are staying there for a total of four nights. We have our last night on the island at the Kensho Ornos which was booked with IHG Points. We currently have a Marriott hotel booked on points but due to some recent bad reviews of the hotel, we decided to change locations. We are torn between the Myconian Ambassador and the Petasos Beach Resort and Spa. The Myconian is slightly more expensive but not by much. We are interested in being near the beach for our hotel, want access to the beach clubs, and also want to see Mykonos Town. Would love your help and advice!
Both great hotels. The Myconian is more luxurious, for sure. But Petasos is closer to the beach (not a lot closer but enough that it makes a significant difference – it just feels a lot closer). Also Petasos is steps from the Mykonos Town bus stop while the Myconian is a 7-minute walk away (not far but not right at your doorstep).
Looking at going to Mykonos for honeymoon in August. We like trendy bars, nightlife, luxury hotels, and nice beaches. Can you recommend an area to stay in Mykonos and also any hotels?
The vast majority of trendy bars and nightlife are in Mykonos Town, and the hippest luxury hotel there is Semeli Hotel. Semeli has two fantastic, trendy restaurants and a bar onsite (you gotta try Krama Restaurant, even if you don’t stay here), but the hotel owners are also the owners of 5 of the top clubs in Mykonos Town, so they are very tuned into what’s going on in town at that moment.
Unfortunately, there are no great beaches near Mykonos Town. For a stylish hotel with beachfront rooms, try Branco Mykonos. Branco offers luxurious rooms and suites with direct beach access, many with private outdoor jacuzzis. Branso hosts music events on the beach three times a week with a live DJ, and they are within walking distance of the two best beach clubs in Mykonos: the world-renowned Scorpios and the ultra-luxe SantAnna. Plus they have an awesome pool, a spa on the beach, and great food and cocktails. There is a bus stop nearby, too, making frequent trips into Mykonos Town.
If style is the top priority, check out Kensho Ornos. This is a design-forward, luxury hotel modeled after the maze-like streets of a traditional village, using straw-textured plaster, aged wood, Myconian stones, and elevated Cycladic elements. The hotel overlooks Ornos Beach, just a short walk away, and boasts 2 pools, a jacuzzi, and a phenomenal bar and restaurant.
My fiancé and I are planning our honeymoon for the beginning of June and we are between Mykonos Grand, Myconian Ambassador, and Anax Hotel. Which one do you recommend we stay at?
These are all wonderful hotels but I prefer the location of the Myconian Ambassador set just back from Platys Gialos Beach. There are many more bars and restaurants here than in Agios Ioannis (where the Grand and the Anax Resort are located). And you can walk along the coast here between different beaches (very fun) and the buses into Mykonos Town run more frequently from Platys Gialos. But – if you’re looking for quiet and solitude then Agios Ioannis is great. There’s a small beach and a couple of good restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.
Hi Dave, I’ll be travelling with my girlfriend, We’ve booked everything in Santorini following your guide. For Mykonos we would be coming in on 25th up til 27th of October. We are mainly interested in beaches and natural beauty not so much into the party scene. Would the Mykonos Essence hotel be a good choice?
Mykonos Essence has a quiet location about a 5 minute walk from Ornos Beach. But it’s unlikely that you’ll be hitting the beach that late in October. It’s still possible to have warm beach weather but probably not. Also, there won’t be much of a party scene in late October so staying in town would give you a more central location without the downside of being in the thick of the busyness.
Hi Dave! We’re traveling to Mykonos is early October as part of our honeymoon. Cannot decide whether to stay closer to the beaches or Mykonos town. Will the beaches still be nice in October? We’ve used your reviews and travel guides to book most of our honeymoon and this is the last leg. Wanted to get your thoughts on the Rocabella hotel? Thanks for the help!
Great hotel but less than ideal location. Sort of isolated. In October I definitely prefer staying close to Mykonos Town as everywhere else is pretty quiet.
What is the best month to visit Mykonos for a honeymoon holiday? We’re thinking somewhere between mid or late September and late October. What would you recommend?
September is a great month on Mykonos. But it does depend what you’re looking for. If you want dance parties and live DJs then best to be here before September 15. Good beach weather usually extends to late September or early October (and sometimes into the second half of October but that’s hard to guarantee). Some restaurants and hotels do begin to shut down by mid-October but there’s still plenty of open restaurants and low key nightlife into late October.
