About Greece: Greece is an enchanting and magical location with a melting pot of night spots, fresh food and mythical legends. Breathtaking Santorini is the romance island, featuring incredible sunsets and panoramic views. Greece makes for a great adventure of Island hopping as well..from Santorini to Athens to party hard Mykonos.
Where to Stay: I’ve done research already for myself as well as clients. What I’ve found is that hotels in Greece vary based off the island to the mainlands. From luxury hotels to big name chains, as well as boutique style. The high season is typically between July-August. Lots of 4 and 5 star hotels can be found in Athens and on the islands of Mykonos and Sanotorini.
San Marco Hotel in Mykonos is a boutique style property that offers a unique experience of a full size resort. Including 2 full size restaurants, full size water pool, spa service and more.
