Mykonos was always considered as one of the most expensive tourist destinations in Greece. Recent figures come to prove that this general belief is true.
More specifically, 5-Star Hotels in the island of Mykonos are the most expensive compared to these in rival destinations of Europe and the Mediterranean.
Side by side with Santorini and the region of Halkidiki, Mykonos ranks top at the list for expensive and luxury hotels.
The area of greater Athens also saw an increase in the number of tourists as well as the price-per-room index but still comes far behind other Mediterranean Metropolises such as Rome and Barcelona.
According to data provided by Trivago and analysed by experts of SETE, the Greek Tourism Confederation, the rate for five-star hotel in Mykonos was €705 ($816) in July, €19 less than July of the previous year.
Nevertheless, Mykonos was still more expensive than Ibiza in Spain where the price was €618 ($716), Santorini with €589 ($682), and Sardinia with €612 ($709).
Surprisingly, Halkidiki, that was falsely considered to be cheaper by many, came at a price-per-room in a 5-Star Hotel of €474 ($549).
