Originally when we were booking our tickets for Greece I was so apprehensive about going there but boy am I glad we got to take in the marvels of this beautiful country. My sister-in-law spoke highly of Mykonos Island so it became our go to island with a couple other places thrown in!
We stayed at the beautiful Andronikos Hotel. We got there VERY early in the morning and although the check-in wasn’t until 2pm they kindly accommodated us so we could enjoy the amenities & breakfast while we waited for our room! I highly recommend this hotel, first & foremost the staff was AMAZING! The rooms are so clean and breakfast is included! Location of the hotel is perfect to get around the island (5 minute taxi ride to/from the airport, 10 minute walk down to Mykonos town, 15 minute ride to the fancy beaches).
Well my words will never be enough to describe the beauty of this land so I’ll let the pictures do the talking…
Andronikos Hotel early morning views
Mmmm….I love omelets! Everything tasted so fresh!
Rare sight: empty alley way in Mykonos Town.
One of my favourite places to relax and people watch … the little Venice of Greece.
The gorgeous windmills. It was always packed here…prime spot to watch the sun set.
Just wow! (I’m a sucker for sunsets).
My favourite waterfront restaurant in Mykonos. The grilled chicken & veggies were so delicious (we came back again the next night)! 🙂
Casual night strolls taking in the views!
Our ‘caccoon’ room was so beautiful (picture doesn’t do it justice)

Back on Mykonos Island for yet another stunning sunset … so in love!
Adventure day: atving (is that even a word?) around the island.
Views on views…
I can still close my eyes and hear the waves crashing against the wall and the birds chirping…
Our ATV adventures led us first to Paradise Beach and then to here…Super Paradise Beach!
Getting our tans on! This place reminded me of my other favourite place in the world, Hanauma Bay, Hawaii.
