The Rocabella Art Hotel and Spa is a laid-back coastal hotel with views of the Aegean sea. Its pool has views of the ocean and small rocky islands and at night, the pool terrace is lit up by candles. Several of the rooms have private hot tubs, terraces and sea views. The hotel staff pay attention to detail by ways such as burning essential oils of your choice in your room during the day and leaving treats for guests to come back to in the evening. As the hotel is a distance from Mykonos town being on the north coast, the staff are happy to arrange travel around the island.
The Rocabella welcomes children and it’s suitable for a luxury family vacation. The two-bedroom suite is large enough for families, and cots, cribs and highchairs can be provided. The hotel also has a selection of children’s entertainment such as coloring books, bikes and helmets.

Spent 4 days in Rocabella and it was a wonderful stay. We got a very nice room with jacuzzi (very nice upgrade), staff was really friendly, very nice pool and the restaurant Reeza is amazing. Location is very convenient (close to the airport, mykonos town, and seaport) and the hotel has private vans for guest transportation.
We decided quite spontaneously to spend a couple of days at the Rocabella and had a very special time. The entire team made us feel so welcome and special. We loved our room with the most amazing view and service - roomservice comes twice a day to clean and bring fresh towels and before bedtime, they prepare the room by lighting scented candles and leaving little gifts.
The breakfast was also amazing, you get to have brunch everyday (otherwise a rarety in Greece), they serve good coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice.
The reception staff is friendly, on request they arrange for a rental car to be brought to the hotel for you or for a hotel transfer to one of the beaches or Mykonos town. Our only critique would be that we thought the transfers were quite pricey.
The pool area is amazing, we spent an entire day just enjoying the pool and sipping cocktails and made great use of the sunbeds which are very comfortable. I also highly recommend visiting in September or October, as the island is a lot calmer (and we still had perfect weather).
I would stay at Rocabella again any time and want to thank everyone there for their efforts to make our time so special!
