After staying in Athens and paying 90 Euro per night for an absolutely horrible hotel, we were very nervous about our reservation in Mykonos. What a great surprise! We paid only 70 Euros for the Nissaki Hotel but it was about tens times better than the hotel in Athens.
First of all this hotel is not in Mykonos town which has its good and bad points. This hotel is in Platys Gialos Beach about a 10 minute bus ride or 5 minute scooter ride from town. Plays Gialos beach has its own restaurants , convenience stores and scooter rentals. The buses to town leave about every half hour from early in the morning till about 2am and drop you right in front of the Nissaki. Platys Gialos is a more family friendly beach and is very cute and a bit more quiet than some of the other beaches like Paradise or Super Paradise. What we found good is that when we wanted to party we'd go to town or the other beaches, but when we wanted to relax we'd stay at our hotel which was very quiet and peacful.
The rooms at Nissaki are nothing extraordinary, but they were clean and comfortable, a solid three star room. The pool area which actually overlooks another beach (which I can't remember the name of) is excellent and classical Greek with the white walls and blue trimmings. The pool is not huge but great for a dip and there are fresh water showers and plenty of areas to relax. The staff were all very helpful and all spoke English. Ask for a second floor seaview room which will have a great ocean view and balcony. All in all, great value for the money in Mykonos which can be really expensive, if you don't mind staying out of town and don't mind not having five star luxury rooms. They have a free shuttle service to pick you up form the port which is also a bonus.
