Let’s be honest: being a parent is probably one of the most difficult things in the world, and if you combine it with travelling, which has its own hurdles even without kids, you get an interesting mixture, to say the least. The best family hotels in Mykonos are mostly close to the golden sand beaches of the island, but I also tried to categorize them per kids’ age group to give some additional context to your research.

BEST FAMILY HOTEL IN MYKONOS: Santa Marina
Honestly, if you are looking to visit Mykonos with kids (of any age), you should stay as close as possible to a beach (there are a lot) . BUT, it’s good to know that you won’t be very close to Mykonos town and you may need to rent a car or get a taxi to get there.
Even though I really love Santorini and Mykonos, it’s only fair to say that these two Greek islands are not the best nor that they offer the same comfort for families. They don’t have the same amount and quality of all-inclusive family resorts you can find on other greek islands but that doesn’t mean you are not going to have a great time with your family there. Both islands have fantastic beaches (though Mykonos beaches are much better and sandier than Santorini beaches) and this by itself can make a fantastic holiday because a sandy beach is a kid’s heaven!
⚠️ But I want to make this clear:
You ARE NOT going to find hotels, resorts and mega all-inclusive complexes with kid’s clubs and water slides in Mykonos. In fact, you can only find these in Crete, in Rhodes, in Corfu and in Kos islands. The family hotels in Mykonos are usually just nice (and most of the times super luxurious) beach hotels that can also obviously cater to families with kids of any age.

So, the best family hotels in Mykonos are (in random order):
It’s safe to say that you will have an amazing holiday in any of the above family hotels in Mykonos. I honestly believe that staying as close to one of the beaches in Mykonos if you are visiting the island with kids is the best thing to do. If you are bringing a stroller (buggy or pram) then you may not even need it as the island only has one main town to be honest (Mykonos Town). If you are visiting the island with teenage kids then probably staying closer to Mykonos Town where all the buzz is, might actually be better as it has more Instagrammable views and generally is more vibrant and closer to the “action”.
