I am in the process of organizing all my pictures from our honeymoon and I keep on being drawn back to our hotels. So many of you have reached out to me and asked me where to stay and what to do while there. If you remember from this post, I gave a complete guide to travel in Mykonos. Today, I wanted to share with you our beautiful hotel experience and my Cavo Tagoo reviews.
Before I ever book any hotel, my first browser that I open is TripAdvisor. When it comes to reviews, as when it comes to that time of the year when my class is complete, either the people that love you or the people that hate you are the ones that are going to respond. The people in the middle usually don’t take the time. So, you are either going to get the over the top glowing reviews or the scathing reviews about the towels not being brought up quick enough. The only negative reviews I teased out is that people called this hotel a place to be seen and the party scene at the pool was a little intimidating. That was not the case for us but we also went at the beginning of the season.
When we arrived off the boat from Santorini into Mykonos, we were greeted by a very attractive Greek male donned in all white. He pretty much looked like he stepped away from the spa to grab us. He had a clearly marked Cavo Tagoo sign and he loaded us into a Lexus SUV. Pretty much two minutes later we were climbing the driveway and arriving at our oasis for the next few days.
The lobby is white and serene with the most incredibly sweeping water views. The staff is very accommodating and spoke English fluently. You can tell it is not their first language but we were able to communicate effectively the entire stay.
Let’s talk about this suite. I’m pretty sure it was bigger than my condo.
It had a jacuzzi tub inside. Which, insiders tip. Make sure you fill it up completely before turning on the jets…….yeah let’s just say good thing there were a lot of towels. That floor got wet, pretty quickly. Mark still doesn’t let me live that down how I almost flooded that suite.
The breakfast was included every morning. This breakfast looked like a wedding spread. It was beyond impressive. I even had a chance to talk to the pastry chef who made all the delicacies daily.
I liked to take my latte out by the pool in the late mornings.
The poolside bar was a sight to be seen. The bartenders were extremely friendly and welcoming. They also mixed up some deadly concoctions.
Can we even talk about this infinity pool. Mark and I never sit still but you know what we did? Actually read a book and just relaxed. What a concept.
They have a full service spa which I indulged in a massage while I was there. There is also a famous sushi restaurant inside Kiku. We had dinner plans already reserved and the price ranges were upper limits of what we wanted to spend. Plus, we get pretty fab sushi in Florida and wanted to experience local cuisine. It does have amazing reviews if you wanted to try it.
Here was my absolute favorite part of the hotel. The car service. The main part of town where all the restaurants and shopping was about a mile away. Very walkable but it was a windy road and not the most ideally lit. The hotel had a Lexus SUV that dropped you off and picked you up right at the opening of the town. That was a MAJOR selling point for us. I personally do not like renting cars in foreign countries if I can help it. The next logical question is how did you call them when you ready to be picked up because lets be honest using your phone in Europe to call is crazy expensive. Well they give you a card with the drivers number and every dinner spot we went to they were kind enough to call our driver and he was waiting for us when we were ready. Yes. It was just as amazing as you think. A person driver in a foreign country included with your stay.
Mykonos itself was not my favorite part of our honeymoon in regards to overall scenery. It was more touristy and a little too loud in comparison to Santorini. However, with that said. We adored our stay in Mykonos because the hotel was that over the top luxurious. Some days when I close my eyes and relive our honeymoon my first thoughts are sitting on that lounge chair just staring off into the water as the warm breezes blew in. It was such a memorable experience and I honestly recommend you staying at Cavo Tagooif you travels take you to Mykonos.
I wanted to share this slice of heaven and to answer any questions anyone has for Greece travel. I hope I lowered your blood pressure slightly with scenes from one of the most memorable trips I’ve had to date. Where is your favorite place to travel to? Do you have a hotel that stands out in your mind as your ultimate and why? If you liked this post make sure to check out the rest of my travel guides here.
