Madoupa Boutique Hotel
What We Love
- A boutique four-star retreat just a short stroll from the beach, with breakfastStaying just 10 minutes from the trendy bars, clubs and boutiques of Mykonos Town
- Spending your morning lazing by the pool, followed by an afternoon on one of the nearby beaches
- The rustic-inspired guest rooms, with all-white décor, stunning bathrooms, and lovely balconies
Perhaps the most popular destination in the Greek isles, Mykonos is a sunny island paradise full of glitz and glam. Whether you come to lounge on the beaches, party hard at the clubs or rub shoulders with A-listers, you can be fairly certain that this island has what you’re looking for. Rolling hills, white beaches and cubist Cycladic architecture provide the stunning backdrop, while trendy beach bars, hip restaurants and boutique shopping are sure to keep you entertained.
In true Mykonos fashion, four-star Madoupa Boutique Hotel is totally dedicated to spoiling its guests. Flaunting their good looks following a head-to-toe refurb in 2015, all of the 25 rooms boast rustic-chic décor, featuring hardwood flooring, soothing neutrals, cool pendant lighting, and plenty of gleaming whites. While life at this chilled-out, whitewashed hotel is mostly about lounging by the outdoor pool with a cool drink in hand, there’s plenty to do should you tire of sunbathing. Within a 20-minute stroll is the beach, and Mykonos Town is just a 10-minute drive away, offering plenty of boutiques, museums and the 16th-century windmills for which is the island is famous.
How to Get There
Chose to stay here as our 'splurge' hotel of our Greece trip as the pictures look really good. Hotel has nice appearance upon arrival in the parking lot. Strange art in the lobby and by the pool seems to take away from the classy/sleek vibe of the hotel. We thought breakfast was included, but it was an additional 20 euro per person per day. Pool area and poolside bar look really nice. Drinks at hotel bar are no cheaper, if not more expensive than multiple restaurants in town, but are convenient. Our room was on the opposite side of the pool, so unfortunately looked into another property that was mostly garbage and very unkempt - not a great view. The pavement around our room was all cracked, and the pieces of gravel/pavement got in your sandals, and this area pooled water, so there were puddles outside the room in the morning after they were done cleaning. Upon entering our room, the concierge found the bathroom fan to not be working and making a very loud, awful noise. She said she would send maintenance by to fix this, but we never saw anyone, and it was never fixed, so we did not use the fan throughout our trip. The room was fine - looks like the pictures, but run down. Our shower drain did not drain well, so part way through showering, you would be standing in an inch or two of water. The closet doors didn't close fully, neither did the cabinet under the sink. There was a safe in the room, however, the button code didn't work on the one in our room so we just had to get the key from the concierge to utilize the safe. The remote on the air conditioner was only working off and on, so we got new batteries for it, but unfortunately it continued to be temperamental. The bed was comfortable! There was a portable android phone provided, that was super convenient. It gave you data and access to internet/maps to use around the island during your stay, and they allowed you to make free international calls with it. This was probably the best aspect of our stay here. Location was approximately 10 minute walk from town, so quite convenient, and it was steps away from a bus stop right on the corner, for easy access to beaches and towns. There is also a convenience store right on the corner across from the bus stop for water. Concierge was fine - seemed really nice and helpful upon check in. When we were checking out, she was less than helpful with the bus schedule, and said our guests don't use the bus, they use car service, so I don't know. Well... we were your guests, so this is probably something you should know. Overall, our stay was fine... clean, safe, budget worthy hotel. Not as glamorous as we were hoping based on the pictures. Definitely not worth what we paid... and we got a discounted price!
The staff was very attentive. I especially liked the couple that tended the bar/restaurant. The pool area is a nice repose from the bustle of Mykonos town. They gave great recommendations for which beaches to visit, taking public transport, and set up a SCUBA dive for me. They even have parking for your rental, which you might want to consider for the uphill walk from town. The rooms were spacious and comfy.
Situated on a very busy main road taking you down into Mykonos Town, single file walking for a good 10 minute walk. Don’t attempt to walk in the heat of the day take a bus back to Vrisi Market for €1.80. A modern hotel with friendly staff, room 107 was very large with a balcony looking out towards Mykonos town and the sea...(lovely view). Lovely breakfast with a good choice. Pool area although not used very much by travellers was very clean and pool towels were provided. Couldn’t always get hot water for showers, but we were told they rely on the sun heating the water....!
Would come back to stay in this hotel...
