For Mykonos, Arhontiko has great rooms at a great price. The pool area is nice and the pension is clean. With that said, there were some draw backs.
We had booked 3 rooms for 3 nights for a group of 6 adults. While we loved the place, we found the transportation issue a real draw back. Arhontoko advertises free transportation into town. While this is true it is also limited. On several occassions we found ourselves stuck in Mykonos waiting up to 120 minutes for a cab. There are few cabs so the wait can be very long. Even when we called Arhontiko for a pick up during their limited time frame we found ourselves waiting in the hot sun for over an hour ( the pension is about 7 minutes away.)
All the members of our group have traveled extensively throughout Europe so we have fair and appreciative expectations of service. We felt as if we were an imposition when we did request the transportation services. An earlier post mentioned walking back to the pension. The roads are narrow, there is no pedestrian walk way, the incline is very steep and the drivers are fast. While walking is our usually our method of transportation, we in no way felt safe doing so here. I would recommend this pension only if you have a rental car.
Lastly, do not leave your windows open at night. The mosquitos are thirsty! We all woke up covered in bites.
