Visiting Mykonos, Greece // Zeena Xena


Hey guys! It's been a while since I last posted on my blog I know, and if you follow me on social media I'm sure you know the reason why. It's been a month since my last post but I'm sure you can appreciate why it has taken me so long. I have so many blog posts pending that I'm just itching to get on the blog and I promise I will very very soon.

I visited Greece, Mykonos last month and I must say I had the most wonderful time. If I'm honest, I have never seen a town so beautiful and clean... Like incredibly clean. I just want to be back already!

We stayed at the Mykonos Theoxenia Hotel which was only a 10 minute ride from the airport (how convenient?). The staff had arranged for our transfers to and from the airport with a lovely driver who was easy to find. Once we entered the hotel, we were welcomed by the loveliest staff who spoke really good English (always a plus when you're travelling somewhere new).

Zeena Xena Reviews Mykonos Theoxenia Hotel in Greece

Mykonos Theoexenia is a luxury boutique hotel in the heart of Mykonos offering a number of facilities. You will find everything you'd expect at this hotel with more of a intimate feel as it is a boutique hotel. As mentioned above, staff are lovely, polite, coordinated and will cater to your every need. The hotel is in the most idyllic location with the famous windmills across the road from the complex, a beautiful sea view (Little Venice) and the town being a short walking distance away.

Room...







In our room we had a large double bed & a single sofa bed to fit three people. From what I remember, the bed was super comfortable and the pillows being extra fluffy... We had the best nights sleep aha. The room was complete with a beauty table + drawers, sliding wardrobe, TV, fridge, other storage and a relaxing chair. My favourite aspect of the room was the balcony area, a nice place to just chill when you wake up and just before heading to bed. 

Each day we indulged in a fresh breakfast which was included with our stay. I looked forward to breakfast each morning as we'd sit outside dining with the amazing sea view in the background.




 
On the day we arrived we also had some light lunch by the pool. As we'd been travelling since around 4 am, I was starving so wanted something a bit heavy (all the carbs). I went for mozzerella. tomatoes, pesto and balsamic vinegar on a baguette which wasn't on the menu, however, the chef was more than happy to prepare this.




Hotel Grounds...


During our stay at the hotel we had the chef prepare us dinner. From my knowledge, I had mushrooms with breaded fish (can't remember which fish this was sorry), in a vinaigrette sauce with mashed potatoes. Usually I wouldn't go near a mushroom but these were cooked to absolute perfection. Overall, the meal was lovely in a great location overlooking the sea and sunset, we even had the chef come out to greet us which was lovely of him!





The sunset during and after dinner...



As I'd just come back from Turkey two days prior to this trip, I wanted this trip to be more relaxed as my other was just so fast paced. We decided to just take each day in it's stride, relax, stroll and explore which was good with me. Here's a little photo diary...













D'angelo Restaurant... 
How typical of me to want Italian food in Greece right? To be fair, I wasn't excited by food choices in Greece but this restaurant's food was so good we dined there twice! If this restaurant was in London, I'd be dining here on a monthly basis. You can make a reservation at D'angelo's by calling here...

Pizza of course...🕺

Tips... 
I booked my flights with Easy Jet costing me approx £130 via Skyscanner. I always go on about this company to you guys as I book my flights with them all the time. In terms of hotels, as we approach the more Summer months, hotels can be considerably higher in price. I'd suggest looking into air bnb's as other alternatives or even packaged holidays.

I enjoyed my Trip to Mykonos so much, I honestly would drop everything to just go again. The streets are so beautiful/clean and generally people are really friendly out there. If you're yet to make travel plans go to Mykonos! 
Many thanks to Theoxenia Hotel for our complimentary stay, we are forever grateful!
