Concierge.com's insider take:
Checking into the Belvedere for the first time, you'll feel like you died and went to somebody's first wedding. Everything's white, right down to the shoes on the staff. That fact—plus the poolside pose-and-party scene, the slick cocktail lounge, the Nobu outpost, the clientele of jet-setters and A-gays stopping off between Bodrum and the Hamptons—makes this a slice of South Beach in Mykonos. If you're here to take in the nightlife and rub shoulders with the fashion flock, the Belvedere is the best place to stay. That's not the only reason to check in, though: Service is above the island norm (Pablo will take excellent care of you at the pool), and rooms, though moderately sized and not as elegant as the public spaces, come with niceties that are rare in other Mykonos properties (flat-screen TVs, cordless phones and hotel-wide Wi-Fi, bath products from Korres, and firm mattresses. The least-expensive rooms look out onto shrubbery; spring for a better view, since the hotel is located at the top of town, a superb position for sunsets. That also means you're a few minutes' walk (assuming you don't get lost among the alleyways) to everything in town. And when you get sick of tzatziki, there's sushi at hand, too.
Closed November through mid-April.
