“Fabulous & Friendly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

My husband and I have just returned from our first trip to Mykonos and it will not be our last. This hotel lives up to all of it's wonderful descriptions and the friendly staff made our holiday. Our thanks to Stavros and George who made our stay so enjoyable - you are both very special people. We stayed in room 108 which was a junior suite and had a big balcony that had a spectacular sea view. Thanks to Maria for helping us secure just the sort of room we were looking for. We did look at a few other rooms (as we will be returning) and all of them have something special to offer. Breakfast was everything you'd need and the hotel's location to beaches, restaurants and Mykonos Town make it a great choice. Generally speaking weather has a bearing on enjoyment levels of a holiday. Our weather was average ( two rainy days out of 7) but we loved our holiday and would highly recommended this hotel.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms. We had junior suite room 108 - fabulous sea view with large balcony. See pho...

We enjoyed this hotel more than any we have stayed in in the Greek islands over the years. The welcome was excellent and thy staff without exception were so helpful, we felt we got to know them as real friends and want to return just for them. The food was excellent as was our breakfasts and the decor and presentation of the hotel was particularly good.
We had a lovely return to Mykonos after 40years and the Palladium hotel made it particularly special. We shall certainly return, hopefully next year.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back of the hotel with side views across to Platys Gialos beach. It was idyllic...

My stay here was very enjoyable. Quiet tranquil days at the pool with lovely cocktails. The
Buffet for breakfast was adequate and they tried to give a different variety everyday. The staff too were helpful and very friendly. Nice walk to the beach. All in all would definitely stay here again.

Four fantastic days in Mykonos, the island of the winds to attend a fashion show of designer Takis Greek Romanos. Two of the 4 days we spent in the hotel, at one of its restaurants "la veranta" if I remember correctly. everything was perfect, the service as befits a five star hotel and the price really good.

We booked through the website and we had for free a car "Matiz". Unfortunately we couldn't swim in the nearby beach "Platys Gialos" , but we eat fish at a great taverna in "Paraga", the other beach which is very close to the hotel.

They gave me a discount coupon for next time and I will try to visit again mykonos this year.

I really recommend it as a value for money five star hotel with great services.

Room Tip: I had the sea view room, but I recommend the one with the external Jakuzzi

I took my family to Mykonos this year and it was one of the best holiday’s we’ve ever had. We stayed at the Palladium hotel which is set above the Platys Gialos Beach and surrounded by palm trees. It was highly characteristic of the Cycladic architecture: radiant whites and sky blues, and our hotel suite was very impressive, both in interior design and its furnishings. The kids loved the place, as our room (503), had a big private area in a garden with a swimming pool. Some mornings, it was really hard to drag them out of the pool to go sightseeing! They also loved the fact that there were plenty of water sports to take part in at Platys Gialos beach. George, the bartender told them about the windsurfing and the quad bikes they could rent and also suggested that we use the hotel’s car rental to explore the island. We found him extremely friendly and helpful. Chris, who was on the desk at night, gave us a useful Mykonos Sky map too, which was packed with information on sights, shopping and dining etc. In general, all the staff at the Palladium were very polite and professional.



We dined in the hotel’s restaurant on three evenings during our stay and had really great food and wine. We ate far more than usual because of Stavros, who insisted that we try nearly everything on the menu. However, everything was delicious and we really enjoyed our continental breakfast of fresh baked pastries by our pool in the mornings. The Palladium is ideal for families, because it isn’t too far way from the town and teenagers can take the ten minute walk if they want to go off by themselves. Also, apart from being comfortable and relaxing, the warm, friendly staff try very hard to make your stay feel like home. I would definitely recommend it to other holiday-makers.

We stayed here in July 2011 as a couple. The hotel is really lovely and Stavros at breakfast really made the trip. The pool area though seems a little drab - the sun loungers could do with replacing and the kid's pool and jacuzzi are really not inviting to look at.

During our stay, was the loudest and naughtiest French child ever. This particular child was unbelievable - he literally just screamed and screamed during the course of normal play and squirted a water gun at guests. The child's mother occasionally told him off but he really just ignored her and carried on. My point is that the pool staff should have been able to recognise that this behaviour was bothering several guests and attempted to do something about it, but they didn't.

On a better note, the days when the family went out, were completely relaxing and lovely, albeit it very windy on some days. The hotel is well located near to a small supermarket and about a five minute walk down the hill to the bus stop for the bus into town. The breakfast is one of the best we've had (and we've travelled worldwide). We didn't appreciate the hard sell when checking in for local trips by reception.

The rooms are bright and airy, although for some reason our coffee cups were never cleaned and we never received any teaspoons to stir tea/coffee despite asking. I also would prefer housekeeping to have been a little more thorough in the bathroom.

Overall though a pleasant holiday on the lovely island of Mykonos.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs floor overlooking the pool

My family and I were given a lovely welcome at the port of Mykonos by a smiling driver form the Hotel Palladium.He arrived to pick us and a group of holiday makers up in a luxury mini bus and seened only too happy to help with everyone's luggage.
On arrival at the hotel, we all swept into the lobby where we were greeted with a cold glass of champagne and shown to our rooms.Everything was run professionally and Violeta,on the reception,assured us that we could pop down anytime if we had any questions,needed any recommendations about places to visit or wanted advice on transport.
We satyaed in an absolutely gorgeous suite with a lovely big balcony where we could sit and look out over the sea.We had breakfast out there every morning and sometimes sat there in the evenings to watch the sunsets too.The facilities and service at the hotel were excellent. When I found it difficult to sleep,Chris ,the night auditor brought me a snack and very hot tea at four in the morning along with a british newspaper he thought i'd like to read.He was very sympathetic and suggested I have a siesta later in the day.
It was close to 90 during our stay in July and without a breeze , we found it best to stay by the sea most of the day.Both Psarou and Plati Gialos beaches are nearby with umbrellas and sunbeds,so we didn't need to saty far from the hotel.
I think the highlight of our holiday on Mykonos was seeing the famous pelicans near the waterfront when we were in town.Petros the pelecan had been the island's mascot before being hit by a car,so it was lovely to have the chance to see his successor.It was the icing on the cake and a lovely end to our holiday and enjoyable stay at the Palladium hotel.

Room Tip: suite 406 is perfect for a family with two kids with direct access to the swimming pool.
