Are you looking only for a Hotel? A self catering apartment?

I think they are both excellent, but would personally stay at the Mykonos Grand.

I wouldn't stay at a self careting apartment during a Honeymoon..........

Yeah you're right.. You don't need the privacy of a apartment on your Honeymoon. Or maybe a private pool. Or the luxury of waking up the time you want without thinking that you might miss the breakfast you have already pay for.

Seriously.. The only problem on apartments is the food. But it is not so hard to figure it out..

A self catering apartment is one with a kitchen — not my idea of a honeymoon suite either. You will have plenty of time during your marriage to do your own cooking.

No, Saint John is a five star hotel. You can find more information on Saint John at their own website: http://www.saintjohn.gr. Here is the website for Mykonos Grand, another five star hotel: http://www.mykonosgrand.gr. If you want the sort of privacy described by TravelingSeeker, these hotels can provide it (at a price): http://www.mykonosgrand.gr/personalized-dining

Most self catering apartments are aimed at clients who wish to save money by cooking their own meals. You are clearly looking for something more upmarket.

We stayed at the www.Mykonosgrand.gr and loved it with a small deck overlooking the sea.

But looking at the St. John and their decks if it is portrayed accurately, I really like the St. John

Both have access to a sandy beach, along with the pool.
