Overview

The Review

Apanema’s facade may embody traditional Cyclades architecture, but step inside and it’s anything but old-school. Music pours out over a poolside scene that caters to a cosmopolitan crowd of jetsetting Greeks, Brits and Americans.

The lobby’s aesthetic of bone-white walls, framed seashells and beachy lanterns is a design blueprint that extends through the 17 guestrooms and complements the customary Greek details: wooden shutters, exposed stone archways and gauzy muslin drapes. Each room has at least three windows, as well as its own balcony or terrace, which doubles as a dining area for the breakfast of Greek coffee, made-to-order eggs and fresh orange juice that’s delivered until 1 p.m. Generous by Mykonos standards, Superior and Standard Doubles are between 322 and 376 square feet. {“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/1806/prop-58836-1316616530-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”On a cliffside perch overlooking the Aegean, Apanema promises spectacular Cyclades’ sunsets.”}

The 15-foot walls are bare but for a seascape painting or two and the occasional inlayed etching of a Greek goddess. Black tiles and smoked glass walls enclose bathrooms filled with Molton Brown or Etro goodies; guests are offered a choice at check-in.

Despite being at capacity during my stay, the hotel never felt crowded. A handful of rooms have private entries that don’t require a trip through the lobby, and my quarters, accessed by a concealed staircase, felt more like a private villa.

But the best place to be is the two-tier sun deck, cocktail in hand, enjoying the pool and stunning views. Dotted with lounge chairs, beach umbrellas and potted hibiscus plants, it gives guests a good excuse to ignore the beach. Should you desire a chilled glass of Peloponnesian wine, a fruit smoothie, or a fresh towel, the small but gracious staff is on hand to deliver.

Great hotel with outstanding personnel!

We really enjoyed our stay in Apanema Resort! The hotel is very cosy with a nice pool area which has a wonderful view, including unforgettable sunsets! The personnel is extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is 10-15min walk to the Mykonos town.

Staff made visit a plus

Came to vacation here in Mykonos, and this hotel is great! The staff was amazing. They become like your family away from home. Very warm, friendly and personable. Always willing and available to help out, however they can. I will be back to Mykonos, and would love to stay here again!

A GREAT Find

If you check my profile you will see that I have reviewed many fine places. This small boutique hotel is a treasure. The rooms are magnificently designed with stone walls, high ceilings and very comfortable furniture. The room is about 3 times larger than a typical nyc hotel room. The pool overlooks the sea and has couches and sunbeds. Breakfast was plentiful and very well prepared. Best of all was the service. The entire staff is exceedingly friendly and helpful. There was not a need that could not be met.
It is a 10 minute walk from the noise of the town, making for an oasis when needed. Yes the walk is along the main road (no sidewalk of shoulder) but we felt quite comfortable.
I think this hotel is, perhaps, one the ten best we have stayed at. Stay here, especially given the value vs. price.
