Ornos Bay, Mykonos, South Aegean, Greece
"My husband and I visited Santa Marina for four nights and had an absolutely incredible stay – truly like a second honeymoon! Santa Marina is a gorgeous, private, secluded, quiet spot away from all the partying & beach clubs on the island – perfect for a romantic anniversary trip. After booking with Marriott BonVoy points (worth using them on this!), we were upgraded to a deluxe suite with a private pool. The room was beautiful, as was the property – a gorgeous beach with private cabanas, an incredible saltwater infinity pool overlooking the Aegean Sea, Bougainvillea everywhere, and tons of photo-worthy moments. The breakfast buffet was delicious, and something we looked forward to every day. The property also has a shuttle into town which was great, since taxis are so limited on the island. We truly didn’t want to leave Santa Marina, and can’t wait to go back one day."
"We decided to spontaneously visit the Santa Marina private pool area as we were not guests of the hotel. It is really very beautiful, clean, luxurious and a great place to relax in the sun by the pool with a view of the ocean. Just beautiful. We rented the cabana space which also came with a swing seat, free water and free fruit platter. We ordered a bottle of Belvedere and were regularly topped up with fresh fruit juice mixers. The service was attentive but not intrusive which we needed for a truly relaxing day. We ordered some fries, dips and pita bread and calamari - all delicious light snacks for the day. It was probably one of my favourite days of the trip. Really worth it."
"A disappointed adventure happen to me in this hotel and turn into nightmare . When we Chek in after a long trip they ask me to pay for the total amount of the 4 days (about 4000€) for a suite with sea view . I paid by visa and came back later at night to tell the hotel that we where not happy with the services ... no one came to pick us up at the airport the house keepers came in the room without knocking at the door, it was so load outside that I could give e any phone call . The morning after I booked another hotel and went checking out ... But they did not want to refound my 3000€ ... I spoke with the general manager who say that the contact with booking was like that and refound could be possible . But I didn’t pay booking but the hotel directly . I didn’t even book on booking to my name . So I was stuck in the hotel, and the nightmare started . We couldn’t sign for the drinks or other facilities, so I decide to go away in the morning and came back at night only for sleeping . They empty the minibar, they stop doing the room ... We ask water in the room and they answered me : it’s 2 € ... I was dreaming . After those 4 terrible days, I ask to order a taxi to bring us to the airport, they refused and told me that I had to pay the tax de séjour (16€) I said no . I went walking with my luggages out of the hotel to order a taxi outside . When the taxi came some one from the hotel told to wait because I did’t pay and the police was coming . They called the police for 16 € ! I had to explain to the taxi my Terrible situation or to miss the plane . We had the plane on time, but it was not very relaxing for me, we like very much the island, and we discovered many other place beautiful and peaceful . But avoid the Santa marina ."
