“heaven on Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2010

The Petra Hotel is in a beautiful location, the pictures of the site are spot-on, beautiful and luxurious. The hotel proprietors and staff are so helpful in every way. They will arrange your transport from Athens and back, they'll do your car rental arrangements, etc. I felt soo taken care of before and during my stay. The staff is very helpful, rooms are immaculate, and the food is out of this world. If you stay, definitely take advantage of their expertise on restaurants, beaches, etc. Recommended very highly. Enjoy!

This was the first stop on our honeymoon and what a perfect place to land. We loved the fact that it was quiet and low key, with beautiful views. The rooms are clean and spacious, the staff is attentive, breakfasts are generous and tasty, and the hosts couldn't have been more warm and hospitable. Thank you for a heavenly stay!

We loved this hotel, it is a work of art, every touch and aspect is really lovely and elegant. The breakfasts are huge and delicious - with freshly cooked pastries every day. The friendliness and attention of the staff was remarkable, we were made to feel like family.
We loved the huge shower in our room and the open terrace. The Petra was peaceful and quiet with beautiful views, deeply conducive to rest and creativity. The beach is nearby but with a swimming pool, this hotel would be sheer heaven for us. We will certainly return. While one of the most expensive on the island it is also the most stylish and unique. We felt it was worth every penny.

Thank you, LinSerge, for your helpful review. Evaluating valuable feedback such as yours, the Petra Hotel & Suites now includes a wonderful swimming pool in its offering since the hotel’s complete renovation and rebranding in 2010. We are certain you will enjoy the swimming pool on your next visit!

Of all the islands we had visited, we liked Patmos best with its mix of gorgeous beaches and religious history. We had a wonderful suite at the Petra with a sitting room and bedroom -- it was beautiful. The staff was very attentive and the views were lovely. We liked the Grikos beach, and we would eat at a taverna on the beach at night -- it was great basic Greek food. We rented scooters, which made the trip more fun -- Petra is remote, though Scala has little to recommend a visit there, just cruise ship passengers.

We stayed in Petra Hotel on Patmos end of August. The hotel is in a very calm area in Grikos. You need definitly transport to go from there. The hotel charges a very high price for the stay and there is all about business. You don´t feel like a guest you are someone who brings the money.
The rooms a nice with a big bathroom (but only in our room). Cleaning could be improved. Rooms have a TV but without Satellite and there is also a radio station which was not working. I´m not keen on TV but at a charge of nearly 300 € per night i think i can expect something like these???? The breakfast is amazing but for some things like a fresh orange juice and some other things you will be extra charged which is really not fair for that room rate. I felt like getting ribed off.
We had some trouble on our last day, because we wanted to have a reduced price for not having breakfast the last morning, because the ferry boat was leaving very early. At the end ... in this house it´s all about earning money and there is no courtesy at all for the guest.
Patmos is a big Island and i think there are really ceaper options to stay with a similar standard.

It is important to mention that since its complete renovation and rebranding in 2010, the Petra Hotel & Suites has changed several policies. Specifically, the rich breakfast that is praised in numerous posts on this forum includes freshly squeezed orange juice at no additional charge, along with an even wider variety of offerings. Additionally, all rooms are equipped with satellite TV as part of a general technology upgrade in our hotel. Although we still stand by our policy that no refund may be provided for a Bed and Breakfast rate if our guests choose not to have breakfast, we do provide a limited breakfast version in the extremely rare circumstance that guests have an early morning departure. We truly value constructive feedback, and this post has helped us improve our services since 2009.

As a general note, we encourage our potential guests to visit the Petra Hotel & Suites and determine for themselves whether our services reflect a labor of love for what we do, as many guests attest on this forum, or whether "this house is all about earning money".

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here, spending 3 nights. Our room was beautiful, clean, well maintained. Breakfasts were incredibly good. Staff was friendly and helpful. They gave us excellent restaurant recommendations. We enjoyed the nearby beach and tavernas. We enjoyed the fantastic view of the bay. We walked to Chora and Skalla, though many would not want to do this because of the hills and distance. There wasn't much traffic, though, and walking was possible. We also rented an ATV to visit other parts of the island. Overall, we quite enjoyed our stay at Petra.
