Video Review: Myconian Ambassador Hotel Review & Room Tour!
We spent one month in Mykonos this summer, finding every little taverna, beach club and shop and we can truly say that Mykonos is an amazing island. During the last week of our trip, we stayed at a few hotels on the island before heading back to California. We booked the Myconian Ambassador on a great shoulder-season rate of $225, the day before the price jumped up by $500. While we could have booked on AmEx Fine Hotels & Resorts, which would have given us $100 property credit, we ended up booking directly because breakfast was already included in the rate of the hotel booking direct and they included a complimentary transfer to the port or airport as well. We wanted the flexibility to decide where we wanted to have dinner and the $100 credit was not enough to sway us. Turns out, that was the right decision, because a few days prior to our stay we were able to bid on an upgrade to the Thalasso Suite with a shared pool. I selected the “weakest” option (as I always do) and we won!
The Myconian Ambassador is located approximately 10-15 minutes from Little Venice and the Old Port. In high-season traffic, it will likely take around 20 minutes, but nothing in Mykonos is super far away.
Platis Gialos is a three minute walk down the road and is home to a number of beach clubs, like Branco, and excellent beachfront dining. Psarou is approximately 5 minutes away if you are looking for Nammos Beach Club and Scorpios is also a 5 minute drive. Max and I left our villa at 9am to make sure we had enough time to photograph the property since this was only a one night stay. We arrived to the hotel at 9:30am, not expecting the be able to check in but hoping to leave our luggage.
Our luggage was taken by the bell staff and we were seated in the lobby to enjoy a cold towel and welcome beverage (cherry juice). The whole check-in experience was seated and the forms we completed were done at our leisure. Much to our shock, we were told our room was ready and we’d be taken to it via a nice tour of the property.
Mykonos is well-known for its tiny hotels with 8-15 rooms dotting the little island. However, Myconian Ambassador could be considered a large boutique property with 69 guest rooms and suites. The hotel is built into the hillside, allowing for many different room types and configurations to choose from. In our opinion, the suite upgrades are well worth it for the extra space, as the standard rooms are on the smaller side.
Overall, for an island that prides itself on its elitist mentality and “better than you” energy, I was overwhelmed by the excellent service we experienced at this property. As one of the best hotels on the island, we expected to be treated as though we paid half the price we should have for the suite, and yet, they were all professional, polite and accommodating.
In total, we enjoyed two breakfasts on property. The breakfast is a champagne breakfast buffet that is included in the room rate for guests. Guests can order eggs, juices and smoothies and select from a wide selection of items at the buffet. Champagne is included, free of charge.
The Myconian Ambassador operates much like a larger resort in any vacation destination. They have excellent facilities that guests have access to and you never really have to leave the hotel if you don’t want to. As we mentioned, they do offer the shared airport transfers for standard rooms and private transfers to suites, but they also have a beautiful roof top pool with exceptional views of the beaches and bays.
