A holiday at this superb hotel really is the holiday of a lifetime: those with the cash to splash might well opt for one of the superior rooms or even a suite, but bear in mind that even the 'ordinary' rooms can reasonably be classified as deluxe.
You can see below that certain rooms offer a private pool shared with the neighbouring room, but whichever room you go for you'll find that they're all beautifully decorated, large (the smallest is 28 m2 and the largest a massive 50 m2) and extremely well equipped.
All have stunning views and feature air conditioning, satellite television, a safe, a mini stereo, DVD player, ironing board, minibar, full length mirrors, internet access with, of course, a beautifully appointed ensuite bathroom.
Naturally, maid service takes place seven days a week and they'll even turn down your bed at night time so you don't strain yourself too much.
The multilingual hotel staff are dedicated to ensuring that you get the very best from your stay, whether you're dining in the Aphrodite Restaurant, the gourmet Apollon à la carte restaurant or enjoying a drink at the pool bar or, if you prefer, the chic cocktail bar Sirene.
The Ambassador aims to provide the ultimate personal pampering experience with one of the best spas in Mykonos, three different pools of essential oils, therapeutic salts and hydro-massage, plus a broad range of 'wellness' treatments specially designed to relieve aching joints, to build muscle tone or to eliminate all those nasty skin toxins. These treatments can frequently be offered in a guest room or suite for total privacy.
If you're into diving then you'll really appreciate the hotel's own Dive Centre, giving you the chance to discover the amazing underwater world of Mykonos. No old boots and discarded bicycles here; instead, explore mystic caves, mysterious grottos and fortified wrecks, for beginners and old pros alike.
