great location and amazing breakfast

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 4, 2011

We were spending 3 nights is Mykonos from May 14th - May 17th. We wanted to make it absolutely perfect & choosing the right hotel was very crucial. I read a lot of reviews on a lot of hotels in Mykonos and was also suggested many by my other Indian friends but we had to make a sensible choice as my parents in their early 60s were also joining us for this trip. We wanted to do our own things yet there wud be substantial amount of time that we would be spending with them so we needed a hotel that was apt for us in our early 30s and our parents as well.

The first reason we chose Myconian Ambassador Hotel & Thalasso Spa Center was because of its location. The hotel is just a 5minutes walk from famous Platis Yialos Beach- The family beach of Mykonos and the most central beach of Mykonos- all water taxis to other beaches start at Platis Yialos.

The second reason was the Spa- apt for us as well as parents and third the sales team who were very responsive and really tried giving us the best offers and discounts possible. We got a 3 nights offer with breakfast and 3 spa treatments per couple at a great price and were booked with Myconian Ambassador Hotel & Thalasso Spa Center .

We reached on 14th May by 11:45 noon. Ok so it did not start very well. We waited at the port and did not have the pick-up on arrival as promised by the hotel. The driver arrived about 20 minutes late and when we told him he is late and we had to wait in the harsh sun, he spoke back very rudely saying he is overworked and some mix-up with the earlier guests he was dropping off. I did not appreciate his attitude, especially because this was our 8th day in Greece and by now we were used to very warm and welcoming people. We did not argue with him because he seemed really pissed and we didn’t want to get into an argument and ruin the first day at Mykonos.

Anyways, so one bad incident and we didn’t know what to expect further! But as we reached the hotel the driver mellowed a bit and told us about the roads and driving etc in Mykonos and finally at the hotel foyer did apologise for being late, however blamed it on hotel as they mixed-up (supposedly). Now, from here starts THE GREAT EXPERIENCE we had.
We got an absolutely WARM WELCOME from the front office, welcome drink, cold towels and while we filled our check-in forms we were told by the front office that we have been upgraded to the executive rooms. WOW! We were so happy we didn’t complain about the driver.

We were accompanied by one of the staff members to our rooms and shown around our amazing rooms. These are big rooms with lil pvt balcony looking at the Platys Yialos beach and the hotel pool and the toilettories were amazing!! Great variety of shampoos and body gels and what not. The rooms were fabulous and spacious and we were given a bottle of Samos white wine with compliments and a welcome note from the manager!
Post checking in we called the Spa and booked our appointments for the complimentary treatment. I will start with the Spa. Very classy and beautifully done. The treatment we had was the 3 pools treatment. The spa has these 3 pools with sea water with different temperatures and salinity content. The 1st pool is hot with loads of essential oils- you soak up in this for treating the skin, then you go on to the 2nd pool- which is warm with salts for easing pains and relaxing muscles. The 3rd pool is luke warm with 20 odd hydro massager fittings for pampering u from head to toe. When you have spent 1 hour getting the 3 pools treatment you are re-born! Its a great experience. The spa hands you robes and slippers and there are many flavours of herbal tea to choose from provided with all treatments. Anyone staying here The Spa is a must visit.

In my 3 days at the Myconian Ambassador Hotel & Thalasso Spa Center, i did not see one grumpy face or one staff who did not make the effort to make you feel nice. Now coming to the breakfast that was served at the restaurant. It was a great spread, many varieties of breads and croissants. Cakes, pastries, baklavas. Jams, jellys. Amazing variety of cold cuts- especially the smoked salmon is worth dying for. Eggs of your choice, milk, coffee, tea, fresh juices, fruits etc etc. And the way the staff takes care of you while you are having your breakfast is phenomenal. The service and variety made the breakfast amazing.
I spent 3 nights and i really wish i did not have to leave! All in all if I ever go back to Mykonos, and I know i will- There is no other place but the Myconian Ambassador Hotel & Thalasso Spa Center that i will stay. My only regret is the experience I had with the driver on our arrival and departure (he was really cross and grumpy).

Superb!

We had ear-to-ear grins from the moment we entered the lobby. We have stayed at other Relais & Chateau hotels, and have come to expect only the very best from them, but the Myconian Ambassador exceeded our expectations. The staff is sublimely courteous, friendly, and helpful. I cannot imagine how anyone would find otherwise. Our room was very spacious, with an ocean view, and even a private pool – on our terrace overlooking the ocean. A private pool was a first for us, and a wonderful surprise. The furniture was nice, and the room was very nicely decorated. As a final surprise, the mini-bar prices were not extortionate as they sometimes are at expensive hotels. It was still a bit hot when we arrived, and I fancied a nice cold beer on my new terrace, and was pleased to be charged only 2.5 Euro for it.

The restaurant service was very attentive, almost too polite, and efficient. As impressed as we were by the hotel, I must say that we did not find the food to be as spectacular as the rest of the hotel. We have no complaints, we only ate one dinner there, but we so love taverna food and ambience that we continued to eat out. The front desk recommended a taverna to us (called ‘Bonatsa’), which was super, so we ate there a lot.

We live overseas, so we travel a lot. We found the Myconian Ambassador to be one of our best hotel experiences. The combination of location, room, décor, services, and friendly staff add up to a wonderful package. For all you honeymooners out there looking for a superb luxury hotel close to (but not right on) the beach, I can heartily recommend the Myconian ambassador.

Unique Quality: Outstanding staff, view, location, views, luxury (at least in our room).

Directions: On a hill overlooking Platis Yialos Beach.
