Best known for its dramatic cliff views, eggshell buildings in traditional Greek architecture, romantic backdrops, LGBTQ-friendly community and a party atmosphere, the island of Mykonos is a beloved vacation destination. Gorgeous beaches along the Aegean Sea, warm Greek hospitality and iconic 16th-century windmills add to its allure. There is no shortage of hotels on the island, with the majority independently owned and operated. Prices range from very affordable inns to expensive luxury hotels, but most offer panoramic views and tranquil pools. Here are the best hotels in Mykonos.
