Overall, we had a fabulous holiday on Milos. We reserved a premium deluxe room at Melian with a massive terrace, a jacuzzi and a gorgeous view of the bay. The hotel's location is great, a quick walk to the adorable town of Pollonia for provisions, shops and restaurants. The common areas are simple but chicly decorated, and there is an amazing view from just about every possible angle (note that there is a new construction next to the hotel and it does block the view from a few of the side rooms).
A few small gripes worth mentioning: I thought Melian would be a little more luxurious. The common areas are tasteful, but very small. There is no beach nor pool (or maybe it's a plunge pool, but it's right in the middle of reception and not very private for swimming or relaxing). This wasn't too bothersome, however, because there is so much to see and do on the island. The queen-size bed was hard, really uncomfortable and only has 2 lumpy, small pillows. Also, there is an internet router in the room that shines so brightly we had to cover it with our jackets every night. Our in-room breakfast was late twice, and I found the meats to be a bit low-quality. Finally, they only let you have 2 beach towels per day. I'm fine with conserving water, but if we plan on having a long day of beach hopping on our vacation and want extra towels, please don't tell us "No!".
Again, overall it was a wonderful stay, and actually a good value. I just wish there was a little more quality luxury.
