Abounding with delicious food, vibrant nightlife, and awesome beaches, it’s no wonder that Mykonos attracts tourists like moths to a flame.
It is a must-stop on any Greece island hopping itinerary.
And of course, one of the best choices for accommodation is a Mykonos hotel with a private pool.
Well, look no further, because we’ve compiled a list of the best possible options for you.
The Island of the Winds, as it’s fondly called, can be the perfect holiday destination for solo travellers, rendezvousing couples, and families alike.
Staying in a Mykonos room or villa with a private pool can be a truly extraordinary experience.
You can enjoy the spectacular view and a nice drink in the privacy of your own suite.
So, let’s get stuck in!
Mykonos is home to countless charming villages and small towns that attract hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. With beaches and quirky taverns and thriving nightlife, there really is something for everyone here.
From the iconic Mykonos Town and famed Psarou Beach, to the more relaxing area of Ornos, choosing where to stay on the island may feel a little tricky.
It all depends on what you’re looking for! Are you here for a family’s summer vacation? A romantic adventure? Or a fun-filled trip with your best friends?
To be honest, it doesn't matter too much where you choose to stay if you're looking to hire a car. However, if you're planning to get around by public transport then this is something to consider.
Before we dive into the best hotels in Mykonos, here are some of the best areas to stay in Mykonos:
Mykonos Town is not only the largest town on Mykonos, but it’s also the most iconic and a must visit. It is home to the island’s history, and we recommend visiting the Aegean Maritime Museum and the Folklore Museum.
You can also explore the town on foot as motor vehicles aren’t allowed to pass during the day. Don’t forget to stop by Panagia Paraportiani, a lovely church known to epitomize Cycladic architecture.
Many visitors also like to try and spot Petros the Pelican while in town! He’s often perching somewhere in Little Venice...
Our top pick for Mykonos Town: Myconian Korali Relais & Chateaux
Despite being the second biggest town on the island, Ano Mera still manages to feel like a charming little town. It oozes with rich history and culture, and a great place to get away from the bustles of more crowded areas.
Note that it’s not a beach town, but you can always hop on a taxi or other public transport to hit the beach. Climbing the Gyzi Castle can give you stunning views, and the seafood options here are quite impressive.
Our top pick for Ano Mera: Sea Side Studios & Houses
Close to the beach and teeming with hiking and cycling trails, Agios Ioannis might be our top pick for family holidays. It’s also near the fun-filled Aqualand Water Park, but still has the quiet charm of a village.
There’s something here for all members of the family: traditional Greek taverns, water sports and surfing, beautiful architecture, and quite affordable accommodation too.
Our top pick for Agios Ioannis: Amazon Mykonos Resort & Spa
For a more upbeat beachside getaway, Kalo Livadi may be more like your cup of tea. It has one of the longest beaches on Mykonos, and is pretty close to Ano Mera too.
Not to mention its lively, Ibiza-like ambiance during summer. But Kalo Livadi can be a great place to stay whether you’re travelling as a couple, family, or even solo traveller! The shallow waters also make it safe and fun to play in the waves.

If you’re looking for someplace quiet and relaxing, Ornos is the place to go. This small village has both budget-friendly and lavish dining options, and is perfect for relaxation on the beach.
You can easily take the ferry to explore the ruins on Delos, or head to the north beach to watch kite surfers. The food options here are pretty diverse too, from Indian and Italian cuisine to local, Greek delicacies.
Our top pick for Ornos: Dreambox Mykonos Suites
We’ve got the romantic destination covered too, with Elia beach! It’s the hot spot for luxury escapades and tranquil atmospheres on a paradise island. The entire Elia neighborhood has an exclusive feel that may suit those wanting a high-class honeymoon.
Additionally, Elia Beach tends to be more out-of-the-way than the popular Mykonos Town, which means it’s less busy and crowded.
Our top pick for Elia Beach: Arte & Mare Elia Luxury Suites
Don’t want a low-key stay on Mykonos? Psarou Beach may be exactly what you need, considering that it’s known for attractive world celebs and their fancy yachts. It’s perhaps the trendiest beach on the island.
You can drink in views of the stunning coastlines, swim in the crystal clear waters, or hit the famous Nammos beach club.

Let’s not brush over the fact that Mykonos has one of the liveliest nightlife scenes in the entire country, and this is probably a popular reason for visiting.
Whether you’re in the mood for a fun night out or a fancy glass of wine, there is probably something for you here.
There are a mix of famous and little-known bars in Mykonos, so it can be worth exploring certain neighborhoods on foot. Who knows, you might stumble upon a cute tavern tucked away in a quiet street.
Lastly, just like when you’re exploring any other place, don’t forget to give the culinary scene in Mykonos a good taste.
