Best Family Hotels in Mykonos
Mykonos features some of the best hotels and resorts in Greece. Katikies Hotel Mykonos, for example, was among Greece’s four luxury hotels and resorts that won FTG’s 5-Star Rating. Katikies Mykonos, located above the Agios Ioannis bay on Mykonos, was characterized by FTG as a “tranquil, chic refuge”. FTG’s inspectors hailed the hotel’s offering of stylish suites with a private pool as well as the view of the historic Delos Island from its infinity pools. Katikies Mykonos’ Mikrasia restaurant and A.Spa also got praise for their sophisticated culinary variety and individual wellness treatments, respectively.
Last autumn, the hotel was listed among the “15 best hotels in Greece” list of Condé Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice Awards.

Nuzzled in a gorgeous setting, above the sun-kissed beach of Agios Ioannis in Mykonos, Katikies Mykonos, a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, captures the essence of chic seaside living only a breath away from the shimmering sea. Katikies Mykonos accepts children over the age of 13 years old. The reason that the hotel only welcomes teenagers is for security reasons. The property is built on a cliff and features steep stairs.
To conclude, my personal favorites are Agios Ioannis beach (the sand!) and Ornos (nearby everything), but you’ll have to see for yourself where you feel most at home!
