After spending 3 days in Santorini I was convinced the sunsets on the Greek Islands couldn’t get any better…then I stayed at the Kouros Hotel. This Mykonos property gave my photo snapping time in Oia a good challenge. It also provided a modern and comfortable location to explore Mykonos from…although once I saw my room it was pretty hard to leave it. This is my Kouros Hotel review.
Modern yet Traditional
Walking into the cliffside Kouros Hotel I was surprised to find modern furnishings with a Greek island feel. The rooms are spacious, something not too common in traditional Greek island hotels, and includes many modern touches to make your stay as comfortable as possible. In my room, this included a cosy living space with a couch and modern artwork, an espresso machine, and a desk. Then there was the bathroom complete with a jet tub.

Oh and don’t forget the views! Rooms at this hotel face west and provide the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sun melt into the Aegean Sea.
The Kouros Hotel is conveniently located above Mykonos’s new harbour and minutes from the old. If you are island hopping there is no better place to rest your head. From there it is a short walk to the scenic old town where you will find shops, restaurants, cafés, and endless alleys for you to get lost in. You will also find the iconic Mykonos windmills, a great spot to enjoy sunset… but then again so is the private deck at the Kouros Hotel.

Around the Grounds
From the lobby to the poolside bar, this hotel has plenty of space to relax. I spent a good chunk of my time catching up on writing in the lobby lounge area because:
- It was super comfortable and
- It came with friendly service.
Beyond the seemingly resident cat that just wants to cuddle, the staff at the Kouros Hotel was always quick to ask if I needed anything or offer suggestions.
When I wasn’t enjoying the local company in the lobby I was poolside enjoying the Greek sun. The Kouros Hotel has one of the nicest pool lounge areas I have been lucky enough to enjoy…and enjoy it I did!
Next to the pool, you will find the hotel’s small restaurant. There I enjoyed an impressive breakfast spread, which is included in the stay. Thankfully the Kouros Hotel also has a small gym, perfect for working off the litres of Greek yoghurt and honey I consumed.READ MORE: How to Tackle Mykonos on a Budget
Stay traditional, Stay Comfortable
For a modern Mykonos stay in a traditional setting, choose the Kouros Hotel. Its friendly staff and perfect location for exploring the old town makes this hotel a win. Add in the private sunsets and modern touches and you won’t want to leave your room.
