“Not a 4 star hotel and shocking service from the owners”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

I got married at this hotel in June and for someone who spent a small fortune at the hotel, the service was certainly not up to scratch. I spent many hours conveying via email exactly what i wanted on my special day, and they didn't do half of what i asked. we stayed in the best suite in the hotel, however we had no hot water for the entire duration of our stay, the toilets stopped working halfway through our stay as well and the jet bath they advertise doesn't even work. at the end of our stay and after the wedding, they tried to charge us for alcohol that we didn't even drink and the owners wife was so incredibly rude and unprofessional towards us. The hotel staff also stole a watch and perfume from one of my family members. This is definitely not a 4 star hotel and one should not expect great service especially when spending a ton of money

Mykonos Palace Beach Hotel is in a fabulous location right on a beautiful beach, great size rooms with balconies overlooking the beach & ocean it also runs along a very cosmopolitan strip of restaurants to choose from. The hotel itself makes amazing wood fired pizzas in their restaurant. There are a range of water sports to choose from on the beach. It is an easy 10 minute bus ride to the Mykonos main town which runs at least every 30 minutes.

Room Tip: I think most rooms have a beach view there, just make sure you check when booking there is a back s...

We loved our stay in Mykonos Palace Beach Hotel. It offers spacious rooms usually with balconies to the marvelous beach view. The location is smack on the Platys Gialos beach which means there are lots of very good restaurants (who offers both WiFi and sun beds for free).
It is the quiet and more high end beach to the more spoiled travelers so no beach parties or many youth but you can easily get that at other beaches which are very easy to get to -the hotel is only 2 min walk from both the bus to the city and the Water-Taxi (just make sure you read the schedule closely as it changes on a daily basis).
It was a superb stay - The hotel room was clean, staff was very nice, breakfast was very good.

Room Tip: Ask for the beachfront room. (most of them are).

We stayed there in August and had a wonderful time. All the staff in all areas were attentive and pleased to help. The food was excellent in the restuarant and on the beach. Would love to go again.
We had a slight upset regarding double booking on the first night but the rest of the holiday more than made up for that

The only negative we experienced staying at this accommodation was its location. You needed to catch a bus to Mykonos town and the buses aren't great! We caught the 9.30pm bus back to Platys Gialos one night and eventually found that we were on the wrong bus along with a number of other passangers, who were going to our destination. We ended up having to walk some kilometers after being dumped on the side of the road by the driver. We were all adamant the bus had a sign in the front window with the destination displayed as Platys Gialos when we got on it in Mykonos town and that bus's departure time was 9.30pm. It is our understanding that staying in Mykonos town has is own problems! It is very noisey, so if its a quite location you want and a beach holiday, you need to put up with the bus service and stay at the Mykonos Palace Hotel.

Thanks to Panos Sahtouris, for his excellent service. We used the hotel beach lounges most days.
Panos was very friendly, and had a lounge available to us, whenever we arrived at the beach.
The lounges were not too close to each other making the beach very enjoyable.
