The pool and close proximity to a few shops is the only bonus for staying here. Reception staff were not the friendliest and the breakfast was crap. Hygiene of the kitchen staff really needs to be reviewed aka smoking while you're cooking for the guests is not on! The whole place smelt of tobacco smoke. Room was clean, had the smallest shower on earth though. I'm wondering if the sewerage trucks that pull up out the back of the hotel might have added to the unusual aroma that was experienced at night times in the rooms? Nicer places to stay within a 5 minute walk.More
Welcoming hotel, ideal location
Stayed here in July (before school hols). Hotel is small but average size for the islands as they can't build above 2 storeys. Staff were welcoming. Rooms are clean and tastefully decorated. Lovely pool....as the beach was very busy...it was bliss to have this peaceful haven. Didn't go short of sun loungers and it was great to have a shaded area to retreat to when the sun was too intense. The hotel is a short walk to the beach (once you know the shortcut), also a few minutes from the supermarket(which we were told is the largest on the island) -it has all the essentials. There's also a lovely bakery...great for lunchtime snacks. You should also visit the ice cream bar that's around the corner from the bakery...scrummy! We caught the bus into Mykonos town a couple of times...the beach bus stop seemed more reliable than the one by the bakery. It's only a short journey but well worth it. A maze of quaint shops, restaurants and bars. Go to little Venice to watch the sunset ...and the windmills!More
Small, but clean hotel.
The rooms were clean and the location was good. The rooms were extremely small ... we had booked rooms for three people and the room had 2 twin beds and one rollaway that fit - literally wall-to-wall! It seemed as if the hotel catered to a younger group and is in need of remodeling, but all in all it was ok. The hotel staff was very good in spite of the lack luster accommodations. It was about a 5 minute walk to the beach and restaurants were nearby. A small breakfast is included, and the food was good.More

Perfect little hotel for chilled sunny getaway x
Just back from a wonderful 10 day holiday spent at The Vanilla. There is not one thing I could say in a negative way. The rooms are spotlessly clean and were given a thorough clean every day and towels replaced. I would recommend a ground floor pool side room as ours was located by the jacuzzi and it was a perfect location for us. I considered the breakfast everyday lovely and I think it catered for varied continental customers. The thing I found so special about the vanilla hotel was the warm, helpful hospitable staff. They certainly are the most wonderful staff I have experienced on holiday. Jenny was an exceptional receptionist who was in my opinion, the heart of the hotel. On my return to Ireland I miss Jenny as much as I miss my holiday xMore
