DEFINITELY NOT VALUE FOR MONEY!!!

To anyone who says "This is one of the best places we've ever stayed in!", I have one thing to say to you:
"You need to get out more......."
Having travelled extensively, I can honestly say that i have never come across a WORSE ATTITUDE at any hotel, apartment or studio anywhere in the world........
The view was the best thing about the place. The rest was very poor......Sadly, the view from OUR room resembled a bad day in Beirut...... The studio was so small and dark with no view and no terrace or anywhere to sit. The bathroom was barely adequate and the towels they provide are small and threadbare and are changed only every three days. The bed sheets on the other hand were not changed for the whole week.
Very Important Note: The pool that they show you does not belong to the property, it belongs to Mykonos View apartments and you are not allowed to use it unless you pay for the privileges.
Marina View was expensive by Greek standards, but nothing prepared us for the sheer bloody mindedness of the arrogant young woman who ran the hotel for her parents. Despite staying 11 days (and new rooms becoming available every day) the so called "wonderful Zoi" refused to move us from our cramped room with shoddy bathroom and "waste-tip" view for our entire stay. Her attitude was inhospitable, arrogant, cold and unwelcoming... Except if you were an Italian young man!!!
She has no desire to help you and very rarely acknowledges you. But most important, the photos they show you on the website must be their best rooms but we never got to see any like that! Not all rooms have view. Our experience proved this is completely untrue!
When my friend asked if she was indeed the famous "Zoi" mentioned by so many reviews on this site, she denied it........
When we visited the "next door hotel" Mykonos View (lower prices) it proved such a stark contrast, in its warm welcome and smiling faces, that we ended up feeling abused, who didn't know why they were being treated so appallingly.....
Bottom line is that Zoi was overstretched and over stressed. As over-paying customers, we were treated with disdain. It left a very bad taste in the mouth, and not a great memory of the island. Shame, because it remains one of the most beautiful places on this earth. But gorgeous scenery alone does not make a holiday....... Hotel Hospitality is paramount on any trip... comfort is more important than any view. So STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE!
In all honesty; Marina View probably the worst place I have EVER stayed in. No staff at all with her parents running up and down to clean the place (2 old people for all those rooms), no room service, it appeared miserable most of the time and looked like they're doing customers a favor. There is no big welcome, very little courtesy.
IT ACTUALLY MADE ME QUESTION REVIEWS ON THIS WEBSITE....BECAUSE NONE OF IT RINGS TRUE!
Spend your money (and it will be a lot) at Marina View at your own risk. There are many other fine and welcoming hotels, apartments or studios on Mykonos where you'll be treated much better and pay a descent price.....You have been warned.....Oh and for the record, we weren't the only people complaining...there was a steady queue of disgruntled guests at Zoi's tiny desk (no reception) most days.
