Great Greek hospitality
Posted Jul 15, 2015
We were met at the airport by Maria who was friendly and empathetic that our flight was slightly delayed. We are really glad we were driven and then escorted to the apartment as I have been to Mykonos on many occasions, but haven't visited it in at least twelve years. the apartment opposite the Alpha bank was really centrally located but it was up on the second floor, praise the Lord! As the streets of Mykonos are very busy and loud from 6pm to the early.
The flat was quiet apart from the late comings and goings of the room next to us. The air-conditioning was really good and helpful as we didn't want to leave the windows open during the night.
We were shocked to be asked to pay for our room in cash as my assumption was that they get the money directly from expedia, But the owner's mother accepted that we could check our credit card account to make sure we weren't paying twice and we were allowed to pay in the morning
Overall, we were impressed by the room which had been refurbished to a high standard. The shower room was amazing, marbled and lots of room. The wifi, however, left a lot to be desired. It was virtually non-existent but I was going to buy a Greek simcard for my phone. This cost €15 for 500mb from the Vodafone shop in Mykonos. Unfortunately, the OTE shop had run out of pay as you go sims @ €5 for the same amount of data.
