The owners of the Santa Marina claim that luxury is their goal, and this is totally apparent as soon as you walk into their beautiful hotel. You can sit back with a cool drink and gaze out over the sparkling blue sea, enjoy a buffet breakfast to set you up for the day or sample the wares of the pool restaurants and bars at any time you like.
If it's seclusion you're after then you can lounge around on the Santa Marina's own private beach and refresh yourself at the beach bar which also offers the finest barbecue cuisine.
No quality holiday is complete without gourmet dining, and you need look no further than the Marine Club and Restaurant with its magical sea views and an unforgettable array of Mediterranean and seafood dishes. Oh, and don't forget to have a drink on the verandah at evening time: no day is complete without experiencing a Mykonos sunset, and you couldn't find a better spot to do just that. It's fab!
