      Thats a good problem to have though; picking between Mykonos and Santorini. Both offer amazing options for where to stay in Mykonos for honeymooners so you will have plenty to choose from. As far as Santorini is concern, you have to book well in advance, for Mykonos as well. This is because they are both small islands and have a lot of demand for tourists visiting Mykonos and Santorini. Either way I am sure you will enjoy your stay.
