Giannoulaki Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very clean, modern, very friendly staff. Definitely 4star hotel. No kettle. Just least you can keep drinks cold. Some reviews are bad, we don't know why. You take a bus or car hire to go to any places or beaches. Car around €40 per day. Better to book from the UK.

Giannoulaki Hotel I thought was very nice. The staff we very friendly, the pool setting was nice and it was perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday, no children or loud parties; however the rooms were quite basic, no tea of coffee making facilities or cutlery what so ever only two tiny glasses. The beds were very hard so not good if you have a bad back and it is also located close to a very busy road with no pavements. It was very much central between a beach and Mykonos town where you could either walk to and risk the busy traffic or catch a bus, which on occasions would drive past your stop making you have to walk back (you had to rely on the bus driver remembering where your stop is and you). Overall we did have a lovely time. Mykonos town itself is lovely and there are plenty of restaurants there.

Great hotel with a nice bar/pool area and such friendly and welcoming staff. The hotel is in the perfect location between beaches and the main city with a frequent bus service. We had such a good time here and would definitely return!

The hotel is a 15 minute walk from the centre of town which suited us because we wanted a quiet break. Taxis during the day are 5 Euro and at night 8 Euro to the centre. Uopn check in this hotel the receptionist insisted on taking our credit card details. I said was not happy about this. They would have our details on the original booking. When I refused to hand it over I was told I would have to hand over a 200 Euro deposit in case of damage. This is OUTRAGOUS. We are a middle aged couple not a group of yobs. The room had the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. It was ancient and without a doubt the noisiest. Every time I rolled over I woke my partner up with the loud creaks. The room was services well with a friendly bedroom assistant. Breakfast was not good at all. If one is paying for it it would cost 15 Euro. I stayed for a week and there was not a single variation. Scrambled eggs, chipolata sausages, scraggly bacon. some awful pie thing made up the hot selection. I say hot as one day the eggs were freezing and we had to send them back. The usual cerals, yoghurts and breads were there and nothing changed. The coffee was vile. The staff were all very pleasant in particular the female receptionist who was always cheerful and ready to chat. I did bear a grudge on the male - that was my fault - I was blaming him for the credit card - It wasn't his fault and I am sorry about that. The dining room staff were very pleasant too. One thing I detest is music piped out poolside. Nearly all of the population has access to their own music. Spare a thought for the people who want quiet. We dined one night at the estaurant and the food was good. This was a surprise in view of the god awful breakfasts. Mykonos is ridiculously expensive and the bar prices in this place did nothing to break that rule. I would stay again in this hotel. So all in all I would recommend it. But I would like to see some changes.

We were greeted by a lovely receptionist who showed us the best places to eat, drink and visit. She then took us to our pool veiw room. I think it had recently been renovated as it wasn't like the pictures. It was clean, modern with a gorgeous shower. The pool area was lovely with sunbeds and parasols. We only has breakfast in the restaurant but there was lots of choice. Reception are happy to call a taxi for you if you don't fancy the walk into the town and we waited about 5 mins for them to turn up. There are some negative reviews but we totally loved the place. I would happily return here.

Some mixed reviews on here, but we found the hotel fantastic. We were greeted by an enthusiastic receptionist (sorry, didn't get her name!) who gave us a map and told us the best places to visit. Our pool-facing room was great and had everything we needed: fridge, safe, etc. There were no coffee/tea making facilities in the room (not sure if this is the case with all rooms?), however these are provided at breakfast so no issue for us. Breakfast was plentiful and ranged from hot food to fruit, breads, cheese, ham etc. Coffee was fresh (not instant from a machine). The chocolate bread was delicious! As other reviews have mentioned, the hotel is situated about a five min taxi ride away from Mykonos town , although you could walk if you fancied the exercise or there is a regular bus service. The taxi cost us about ten euros each way. There is also a small supermarket at the end of the road outside the hotel. We used this to stock up on water, which we kept in the fridge. The pool area was lovely although you had to be brave to take a dip in May! If you're going when it's hotter you'll be fine. And finally, we were greeted by a lovely cat every day. Please bear him/her in mind as I'm not sure how he/she gets fed.

Just got back from a lovely relaxing week at the Giannoulaki Hotel. Must admit was a bit worried about one or two of the reviews but we had a fabulous time right from our check in experience by a lovely lady Constantine I think was her name who straight away showed us best places to go to visit and eat etc on the island. Chris on reception was also really helpful and friendly. Free wi-fi too although some on here said they had to pay! Although the hotel is located some walking distance downhill from Mykynos Town along a busy road but local bus stops frequently right outside Carrefour supermarket at end of road from hotel and only 1.80 Euros each way. So I wouldn't let this put anyone off personally as enjoyed the peace. We walked though to Town and back every day as needed the excersise with no problem as just wore comfy footwear! Taxis are about 10 euros although didn't need one as buses ran pretty late for us. Hotel swimming pool and views picturesque and whole place kept really clean. Plenty to eat at breakfast too and I'm a veggie! And at least could have a cup of tea! The waitresses Eva and Elena were lovely too and couldn't do enough for you! There was also another girl who I didn't get her name but had short blonde hair who was really helpful too. As for eating out we loved O'bati and Andreas and Maria which were at top of road to the right about 5-10 mins walk from hotel. Very friendly and bit cheaper than town but lots of nice places to eat there too. We loved Nice n Easy organic restaurant in Little Venice with plenty of choice for veggies/vegans and beautiful sunset views and Captains by the old harbour.

The best thing about this hotel are the reception staff, Chris and Constantina (I hope I got that right!) who are the most friendly, happy people. They are full of useful information and it seems like nothing is too much trouble for them. They really made our stay as good as it possibly could be, helped us out on multiple occasions and always had a smile for us, even on the morning after they'd worked the night shift. A true credit to this hotel. Thanks guys! :) The hotel its self is well set out, the grounds are pleasant and the pool area is lovely. our room was very spacious and clean, the towels were changed daily and the room was also cleaned on a daily basis. It was pretty much spotless. I read in previous reviews that the wifi wasn't free. This appears to have changed as you can now access the wifi for free (yey!). I also read that the restaurant prices were high... while we didn't eat here, I thought the prices were fair compared to the rest of the island, at around the same price for food and drinks as we found in establishments in the town. As for the location, yes, it's not in the middle of town. However, busses run every hour during the day (1 euro 80 for a single ticket) and there's a stop right outside the hotel. Taxis to and from town are around 10 euro each way and the guys on reception are happy to book one for you. Constantina also helped us hire a car, which only cost us 100 euro for 3 days and was dropped off and picked up from the hotel. Really great service. :) You can also walk to Platis Giallos beach in around half an hour (not a good road if you have kids, but fine to walk if your a grown up) or the bus runs every hour and takes about seven mins! (1 euro 80) I'm really not sure why people are grumbling about the location. Do your research before you go, and be prepared to (very easily) get the bus. It's not difficult, so don't be put off by the lazy people! Plus this hotel is probably a lot more spacious and quiet than town centre hotels. I would say it's a hotel for grown ups though, rather than families. The only let downs were just tiny little points, like when we first got to the room, there was no hotel information in there (this appeared on day 3) and our shower head was a bit rubbish and could maybe do with replacing, but it still did the job and got us clean! I would also echo the sentiments of others and say that a little more fresh fruit at breakfast wouldn't hurt. We stayed a week and only saw orange and fruit cocktail. these are the only things stopping me from giving a five star review. Otherwise it was spot on. All in all we had a really great time here and would recommend Giannoulaki to anyone. Thanks for a great stay!

We stayed here for 3 nights and found both pro's and cons. The pro's: The staff were great, all really friendly, especially the male receptionist who even came out when we were going out for the day to make sure we had sun cream. The room was big and clean, we were right next to the reception and had no issues with noise. Free wifi was available and pretty quick too. The pool area is beautiful and the pool is really deep. Breakfast for the most part was good, there is a broad choice. We liked the location, however would definitely recommend renting a vehicle to travel to and from the hotel, the walk to town is definitely ropey! The cons: firstly the shower wasn't attached to the wall which was a bit annoying. The pool was freezing, so we only went in one the days when it was hot outside. The gym needs updating, however the staff did tell us this before we went down there. We'd definitely stay here again.

Always ask for a room upstairs. You can hear everything and if there are party people in the room above you won't get any sleep. This was horrible. Breakfast is ok, no big choices, always the same things every day. No fresh fruit, no tea. Room was big. Towels had been changed every day, but they didn't clean up the room.
