Over the past few years I’ve heard very mixed things about this Greek inspired resort which has apparently been around for about 25 years now, so it wasn’t really high up on my “things to see” list.
But when bestie Leigh was then asked to go and check it out for a review, and was told that she could take along two girlfriends, that’s how myself and third musketeer, Tam, ended up on a little weekend roadtrip…
We had been booked into a 3 bedroom self-catering unit in the Club Mykonos Preferred – Hillside * area:It definitely seemed like the place to be, because well, the view was just incredible:
* There are also Marina, Sea Front & Village options in the Preferred range.
Our unit’s pricing starts at R1900 per night, but you can check out their full breakdown of 2014 rates over here. There are also other accommodation options closer to the centre of the resort called the Terraces & MyCascades. These also seemed nice, just smaller and a bit more on top of each other, but they are also more affordable:Our unit had it’s own braai, so that was definitely a great option for dinner, but the resort also has a variety of eatery options you can choose from if you don’t feel like doing dishes. I really loved two in particular. The first was a seaside spot called Lekka By Die See:
The second was a cute little Greek restaurant called Bouzouki:The resort also has lots and lots of other facilities, from a casino, indoor pool and gym to various kid zones. City slickers will probably not find the Cellu-Beauty Spa up to scratch, but to be totally honest, the best chill time really is to be had on that balcony of yours… Just sit back, put your feet up & enjoy next-level sunsets like this one: I’d say if you’ve been looking for a little getaway that didn’t require too much driving outside of Cape Town, this is a good option.
Fresh sea air can only ever leave you feeling relaxed & rejuvenated, right?
