Our favourite rooms

For a cosy seaside getaway, snag a Superior Sea View room; the large stone headboards act as a room dividers in these airy open-plan rooms. Swing open the doors of your private terrace for lots of light and sea views from your bed. Splash out on the Master Suite for its sweeping panoramic views and large terrace with private plunge pool and cushioned wooden loungers.


The outdoor pool, like much of the hotel, is framed in white stones. Snag one of the white-canopied poolside day beds to lounge on between dips, or to recline on for an après-swim beverage. It's particularly romantic at night, when lit up by the bevy of poolside lanterns.


The hotel’s spa treatment room menu includes deep tissue and Swedish massages, mani-pedis, facials and aromatherapy, all with local Olive brand products. There is a couples massage option for a de-knotting-à-deux and in-room treatments can be arranged.

Packing tips

Stair-climbing shoes, flowing white and blue attire to match the scenery, and the next book on your list to read on the terrace.


Score extra romance points by steering your date to the hotel’s telescope for a little after-dinner stargazing.


Your small dog or cat will be welcomed with a fluffy pillow to sleep on and an assortment of small treats. See more pet-friendly hotels in Mykonos.

Top Table

Sit as close to the edge of the terrace as possible for uninterrupted views of the Mykonos bay sunset.

Dress Code

Strappy flat sandals for Mrs Smith and breezy white linens for both.

Hotel restaurant

Served poolside from 8am to 11am, the buffet breakfast includes freshly Spanakopita and other Greek pies, fresh fruit and juices, and other morning fare. Helmed by executive chef Gikas Xenakis, hotel restaurant Reeza serves up contemporary Greek cuisine featuring locally sourced ingredients, organic produce, and freshly caught fish. Order a bottle of Cycladic wine and enjoy leisurely dinners in this open air restaurant. During the winter months, the hotel restaurant is open only for breakfast, which is a more reigned-in Continental affair.

Hotel bar

The poolside bar is separated from the restaurant by flowing white curtains and has a cocktail menu created by the hotel’s award-winning bartender. Try a refreshing Watermelon Margarita or cucumber-and-apple-infused Green Mojito while lounging poolside, or pre-dinner Bubble Trouble with pineapple and prosecco. The bar menu has light bites, lamb burgers, fresh fish, fruit platters and desserts. There’s also a small bar in the lobby where you can stop by throughout the day for a gin fizz or Aperol spritz.

Last orders

The restaurant and poolside bar are both open until midnight.

Room service

The menu includes Greek salad, light bites including pitta bread with spreads, cold cuts and cheeses, fruit salad, the Naxos Club sandwich and a classic beef burger, risotto and more. Order anytime and enjoy a meal on the privacy of your terrace.

Agios Stefanos, Mykonos Cyclades, Greece, 84600


Mykonos Airport is 15 minutes’ drive from the hotel. The hotel can arrange transfers from €20 a person – more for a private car.


The hotel has onsite parking for guests, so if you’re driving, follow the signs first to the new port, then to Agios Stefanos Beach and on to Rocabella Mykonos. Taxis usually aren’t available outside winter, so organise yours transfers or car-hire delivery at the airport or ferry port.

Worth getting out of bed for

Agios Stefanos beach is short stroll downhill from the hotel, so you won’t need to venture far to find a sun-soaked spot on this chilled-out curve of coastline. Consider reserving daybeds at  Scorpios Mykonos Beach Club to ensure your ideal spot on this stretch of white sand. Psarou Beach is slightly set away from town (about three kilometres), and has bottle-clear waters and very Instagrammable carefully aligned loungers with shades.

Head south to Chora, Mykonos’ main town, to check out its 16th-century windmills and milk-white adobe churches, or ask Rocabella Mykonos to customise a sailing excursion for you and your first mate; they will personalise it right down to the on-board music, and when you return to port a bountiful barbecue will be waiting for you. 

Local restaurants

For a laid-back lunch, Popolo (+30 (0)2289 022208) serves up, arguably, the best sandwiches in town. With fresh juices, pastries and coffee, it’s also a solid bet for breakfast or a mid-afternoon pick-me-up after a stroll around the town. For a Mykonian take on modern Greek, swing by Bakalo (+30 (0)228 907 8121); we particularly like the tables in the shaded garden and the fresh fish dishes here. Avra Restaurant (+30 (0)228 902 2298) has a tree-trimmed terrace and serves a selection of contemporary European and traditional Greek dishes, including moussaka and stuffed vine leaves. 

Local bars

Mykonos is one of Greece’s more sophisticated clubbing-mad islands and there are plenty of slick VIP bars where you can down an ouzo and dance along to celeb DJs. Caprice (+30 (0)228 902 3541) in Little Venice is a cosy but airy bar that sits right at the edge of the Aegean. Island institution Cavo ​(+30 (0)228 902 6124), on Paradise Beach, is the mega-club host to the likes of Roger Sanchez and Tiësto, and open from midnight to mid morning in July and August.

Anonymous review

We leave Mykonos Island Airport and are immediately struck by a wall of heat. A gentleman from our surf-hued Grecian stay, boutique hotel Rocabella, promptly greets us and ushers us into a mercifully air-conditioned car. Around 15 minutes later, at the front desk of the airy lobby, we’re being offered champagne. Naturally, we accept and take our flutes out onto the balcony overlooking the pool, which in turn, overlooks the sea. We’re here; we’re on holiday. Our room isn’t quite ready yet, but we’re perfectly happy lounging poolside, alongside a few other couples, who seem equally thrilled to be here. While we wait, we’re treated to a champagne top-up. 

After half an hour of basking, we’re swiftly taken up to our sea-view suite, which is simply beautiful – perhaps more so than the pictures suggested. Its focal point is a large bed at the centre of the circular room, facing floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that look directly out over the glistening sea. The wardrobe’s a wooden rail running along the wall, and the bathroom is equally open-plan with not one, but two showers, a large sink and natural local bath products. The whole ambience encapsulates Mykonos; everything’s been whitewashed: the walls, ceiling, linen, towels… Everything. We love the simple bed frame hewn from stone, also white. This pale palette makes the suite feel fresh and airy, and sunbeams bounce around the place. 

Out on the balcony, as if the view wasn’t enough, there’s a hot tub too. Arguably, we struggle to get it to quite the temperature we’d like, but it’s still rather glorious — especially at night, when you can soak and stargaze. It’s a real treat, far more exclusive than a communal Jacuzzi, and better suited to the sun-drenched surroundings than a bath tub. A hot tub on the balcony – one should be included with every holiday…  

Needless to say, we get a blissful, soundless night’s sleep. We stick with the pillows already plumped up on the bed, feeling too much like divas to order alternatives from the ‘pillow menu’, even though we’re intrigued by the very concept. Come morning, we marvel at the extensive breakfast offering. We eat everything: Greek yoghurt (naturally), home-made vegetable tarts, fresh and dried fruit, eggs… All wolfed down in the alfresco dining area, right by the pool – ideal for lapping up the early-morning sun that’s already beating down. 

After breakfast, it’s time to see what the spa has to offer. Rocabella treats each guest to a free 15-minute treatment, so my fellow Smith and I decide to indulge in a mini massage each. Afterwards, I pretty much float out of the room, muscles deep-tissue pummelled to a pulp (in the best possible way), knots banished. Mr Smith is in a similar state; I wouldn’t have thought it possible to reach such an ecstatic state in just 15 minutes, so I’m impressed. Obviously, there are plenty of full-length treatments on offer too, from buffing to massaging, filing to polishing. 

In Mykonos, if you haven’t acquired a hire car, you’re reliant on resort chauffeurs or local taxis. However, Rocabella runs a faultless – and free – on-demand shuttle service; you need to give 30 minutes’ notice, but it’s a joy to know that as soon as we’re ready to head into town we can just call down from our room. We let reception know when to pick us up and when we tire of exploring, they’re there and waiting for us. This handy service runs between the main town, hotel and airport; but if you want to log some beach lazing, you’ll need your own car.

We dine at Rocabella on one night, at a candlelit table in the same alfresco area where we had breakfast. We share a Greek salad to start with, made with sea fennel and cheese curds instead of the usual feta. The rest of the menu is Italian-tinged, with a meat- and fish-heavy selection of risottos, pasta dishes and grills. I sort of wish there were more Grecian classics, but I can’t complain – everything we eat is fresh and tasty, and there’s a relaxed ambience. The poolside is quiet, with just a few fellow diners scattered around, and the hotel’s cat is purring around guests’ legs, yearning for attention. 

Retiring to our room every evening is a treat. Each night there’s a little something new in our room, be it chocolates, tiramisu, or the mini bottle of local pink fizz which appeared on our final night. We feel spoilt with these unexpected and thoughtful gifts. There’s also a TV in the room, but I can’t say we ever turned it on. With this ‘get away from it all’ setup, you don’t need it; and by check-out, which comes around all too soon, we’ve forgotten the outside world exists beyond our Mykonos hideaway.

Our room was amazing with hot tub jacuzzi with a stunning view over Mykonos and the other islands. The hotel made my husband's birthday so special! Definitely book a room with sea view.

There is nothing NOT to love when it comes to Rocabella! A world-class and well managed resort in a charming beach resort only 10 minutes from the crazy and beautiful Mykonos town! The team at the hotel, led by Alan (GM) makes you feel very welcome from the moment you arrive. They are all very knowledgable about places to visit and more importantly places to dine and drink! We loved our room which had a super comfy mattress, soft linens and a menu of pillows to choose from! The free hourly shuttle services into town is the best we've experienced! No need to wait for buses or take taxis when going into Mykonos town which is only a 10 minute drive away. We also loved the 5:00 - 7:00pm happy hour which made watching the sunsets from the pool area even more spectacular. Recommend Petran, a typical beachside taverna overlooking beach at Agios Stafanos. Limnios was one of the best Greek tavernas we've eaten at and just happens to be in Agios Stefanos. 110 steps up the hillside if you're feeling energetic or let the shuttle whisk you there in 5 minutes. Buddha Bar - glamorous, fabulous and delicious food - all in equal measures.

Don’t expect

A booming bar with DJ spinning tunes until 3am at this place. Remaining anonymous. Alan and the team will know your name by day 2 and by the time you leave you will feel like part of their team.

Stayed for a 4-nighter. First time in Mykonos. Best holiday we've had so far. Hotel staff very friendly, harmonious and helpful. Lovely touches to make our short stay the best, such as turn-down service with aromatherapy, complimentary massage, shuttle bus, bottled water...Breakfast buffet was the best with a huge selection. Freshly cooked omelettes to your choice and freshly squeezed orange juice etc. Superb lunch - recommend the mussels. Mostly couples here. Very chilled out. Would definitely recommend and would come again to Rocabella.
