the george hotel mykonos reviews

We had wanted to visit Mykonos for some time but with our eldest being in school it meant term time holidays which also means inflated prices.

After months of checking and being disappointed by the expensive prices on the island, I found a great deal to the beautiful George hotel in Platys Gialos.

Here we will review every aspect of our stay with 2 children at the George hotel, so you can see if it’s the right for you.

About the George Hotel

The 4 star George Hotel is located in Platys Gialos around a 15-minute drive from Mykonos Town. It opened in 2015 and boast stunning views of Playts Gialos beach. The beautiful whitewashed building is everything you’d expect when visiting Greece.

There are 41 tastefully decorated rooms and a great sized swimming pool for a boutique hotel, with plenty of sun loungers. The hotel has a great bar serving delicious food and drink.

First Impressions

We arrived late at night (10 pm) with our 2 young boys (5 & 4 months old) after a comfortable 15 min transfer from the airport. The hotel looked beautiful lit up at night and we were excited to see it in the daylight.

There were two other couples in front of us when we arrived at the check-in desk, but the lovely lady asked them if they would mind us going first with having the kids. She was so welcoming and took the time to make a fuss of the boys which I thought was such a lovely thing to do.

Check-in was quick and smooth and we were soon in our room after being helped with our luggage. There are quite a few steps up to reception and the rooms, so it may not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues. My husband had to carry the pram up and down the stairs to get to the pool, bar, and room. No avoiding them I’m afraid, although I did see a lift near reception which goes to some of the rooms.


The George hotel is located 4km (15 min drive) from Mykonos town. There is a boat on the beach which is a 5 min stroll
