As I mentioned last Monday, I get many emails from blog readers and calls from friends asking me all sorts of travel destination questions. Unfortunately, I have not been to every destination asked, so I figured I’d put those questions out there for my blog readers to answer! Last week was very successful helping a reader figure out where to stay in Maui. It was great to see everyone’s suggestions and point of views on where to stay. I figured I’d continue on with this Monday feature as a few other folks have emailed me asking for trip help!
So this weeks travel destination includes the Greek Islands, specifically Mykonos and Santorini. I received the following email from reader Rebecca:
“I have a trip planned to Santorini and Mykonos in 10 days. I have my hotel arrangements figured out (all Starwood of course!), but need some suggestions for restaurants. Do you have any? Also, any other recommendations on things to do would be much appreciated.”
Greece is very high up on my list to visit, but I have yet to get there! Greece is actually a GREAT place to use your Starwood points as there are no other real recommended chain hotels in the islands where you can use your points. While the point redemption is high, the paid rate is outrageous and many allow cash & point redemption. There are two Starwood hotels in Santorini, one in Mykonos, and another in Crete. There are a few others elsewhere, but those three islands seem to be the most popular for the Starwood brand. From reviews I’ve heard from many others, you will not be sorry with your hotel selection!
If you’ve been to Greece before, let’s help out reader Rebecca! Also, if you have recommendations on any other aspect of vacationing in Greece, feel free to comment away to help other interested readers as well!
Just a reminder – I will include these blog posts in my Trip Reviews page. Comment away!
