Overview

The Review

Perched above Agios Ioannis Beach on the west coast of Mykonos, De.light Boutique Hotel is a textbook Greek island retreat. It’s small (there are just 18 whiter-than-white suites), and there are stunning views of the Aegean Sea from every angle. Located three miles from thumping Mykonos town, this laid-back hotel offers a welcome escape from the party hub’s lively bars and sceney clubs. The focus here is on shifting down a few gears and soaking up picture-perfect vistas.

The swim-up bar is manned by a mixologist who shakes up poolside cocktails. At night the water shimmers with fiber optic lights.

All of the light-flooded suites face the sea and feature private verandas on which you can tuck into a classic Greek breakfast (creamy yogurt, local honey, fresh fruit) or sip a sundowner. Bright pops of color break up the white-on-beige color scheme, and a pillow menu adds to the boutique hotel experience.

There are two restaurants on-site, both located poolside. The Pool Restaurant is a top spot for an informal lunch made with local produce, and the Authentic Restaurant serves posh dishes alongside an impressive wine list. Fill up on classic Greek dishes, but remember to save room to savor the dramatic sunsets.
