Mykonos Grand is a luxurious beach resort nestled in a serene setting on the beach of Agios Ioannis. A set of whitewashed cycladic buildings set across the backdrop of azure sea and skies, the Grand is an idyllic beach retreat.
Mykonos Grand is a wonderful beach-side boutique resort. The resort is known for its fabulous views of the sparkling Aegean Sea, exceptional service and excellent location. It is the perfect place to spend a few nights or even a couple of weeks. The resort has been designed to enhance the beauty of the natural surroundings while providing the ultimate luxury.
Mykonos Town is just over four kilometers away. Here you can find wonderful shopping opportunities, tempting restaurants and of course the renowned nightlife scene. Local buses run to the town from just outside the hotel, and during the evening the hotel runs a complimentary shuttle bus.
The resort boasts a wonderful main pool overlooking the beach, often known as the Shirley Valentine Beach (after the movie), which does not host any watersport activity so as to retain the peaceful and relaxing environment. Instead you can enjoy the feeling of the warm sand between your toes, relaxing on the comfortable sun loungers and bathing in the refreshing turquoise sea.

One of the best things about this hotel is its service. I recently stayed here myself and could not fault the staff in any way. They are incredibly helpful and proactive to all guests without feeling overly fussy. The rooms are lovely and spacious with everything you could need for your stay. It's just a two-minute walk from the Shirley Valentine beach where the hotel has its own private sun loungers, this makes the perfect place to spend a few days in Mykonos.

Mykonos Grand is perfect for anyone looking for a luxurious retreat away from the busiest parts of the island but still within easy reach of Mykonos Town. The hotels shuttle will run you there in about 20 minutes so perfect for heading in for evening drinks and dinner. The hotel itself has the most amazing views out onto the Aegean with the island of Delos sat directly on the horizon. From the main pool the views are simply amazing and you can then walk down to a small sandy beach area which is quite rare for the Mykonos hotels. Walking along the beach you also have a couple of local restaurants for lunch or dinner which is great for a longer stay as you are not confirmed to the hotel or having to schlep into town. The hotel has a more relaxed and traditional feel to some of the more glitzy hotels on the island and youre less likely to bump into the super yacht crowd which is always a bonus!

Mykonos Grand is a great place to stay while on the island - the private beach area is ideal for relaxing, while the delights of Mykonos Town are a short drive away in the hotel's complimentary shuttle. The rooms are comfortable and spacious (the smallest is 33 sqm) and many offer beautiful sea views, so your private balcony is the perfect place for an evening drink as the sun sets across the water.
Cordelia Nicholls (Staff)
The hotel has more of a resort feel to it with a big pool area and excellent facilities including a tennis court and private beach. The staff are all incredibly friendly and helpful, the food is excellent and there is plenty of room for everyone so you don't have to fight for a sunbed!
Rooms are spacious and well appointed, sea views are lovely and the sea is just incredible.
