“Loved every minute of it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2008

This hotel can easily pass for a 7-star status. It is extremely clean, superb looking, awesome location, excellent food, perfect aminities and most importantly professional staff and great service. We built such a friendship with the staff escpecially with their guest relations manager, Maria Economidou, who made us feel right at home. She was so accommodating and kind. They really took extra care of our children (2 boys ages 4 and 5). This hotel is family owned and family operated. If you want to experience something you've never experienced before, try it out. I highly recommend it. My family and I will definitely return to it in the near future. We miss it already.

After a two weeks stay at the Palladium Hotel Mykonos in July 2008, we want to write some words at this web site so that we can recommend this hotel to as many as possible who wants to have a perfect stay at Mykonos. During the last 10 years, my wife and I, and now also our two daughters (8 months and 9 years old), have travelled each summer to different Greek islands. The last 5 years we've been to Mykonos 4 times. We have during these trips stayed at 6 different hotels,(including the Petasos Beach hotel). The Palladium Hotel Mykonos is by far the best hotel we've ever stayed at.

We have never experiensed a hotel where the staff has been so friendly, the service so good, the food so excellent, and the quality of whatever it shoud be so good. In short, the staff at the Palladium Hotel Mykonos makes you really feel that the guests are there to be served! If you want a good Cappucino or Frappe for your breafast, you'll get that without having to pay some euros extra, and if you want fresh orangejuice for your breakfast, you just sqeese your own as much as you like.

And of course, all in very beautiful suroundings both outdoors and indoors. A perfect poolarea with a Poolbar, a little Gym and a Jacusi, and beautifully decorated inndoor areas and rooms gives a feeling of owners with good taste and owners who really cares. Both the breakfast restaurant and the dining restaurant have wonderful seawiev, and all the hotel is very elegant in every aspect.

This is the first time we've ever written a recommendation like this, but our experience at the Palladium Hotel Mykonos was just so perfect in every way for the whole family, so we hope that this recommendation might tempt more people to experience the fantastic service at this beautiful hotel.

We will definetely go back to Palladium Hotel at Mykonos!

Spent 4 nights at the Palladium with a couple of friends. We flew into Mykonos airport and the hotel happily came and picked us up. The island is very small and we were back at our hotel within 15 mins (perfect for departing as you don't need to go to the airport a couple of hours in advance either). It's located up the hill from the beach - about a 10 minute walk but we preferred the beaches slightly further away - Super Paradise and Elia. You need a car to get to them (can take a ferry from the beach down the hill but will take 1/2hr/1hr to get to them instead of 15 mins in the car). Mykonos is also a 5 mins car ride away or buses leave every 30 mins. Bus stop is right outside the hotel but they seemed to be full all the time. They say taxis are impossible to get, maybe we were lucky but never had any trouble either outside the hotel or coming back late at night.
The hotel itself has a beautiful lobby, classic but contemporary, the rooms however weren't so exciting and the bathrooms small. But clean and comfortable. Ours lead right out to the pool which was convenient. Though we did feel they smelt a bit musty!
The pool was nice and never too busy but they could do with a few more umbrellas/loungers - but most people went to the beach.
Breakfast was included and fairly straight forward buffet style.
You have to buy internet access by the hour/day etc but it wasn't too expensive and if the computers were taken in the business center they were always very happy to let us borrow theirs!
The staff were incredibly attentive and friendly. Everyone knows who you are and looks after you. Were happy to book our dinner reservations etc. If you want somewhere amazing to eat go to Namos for lunch or dinner on Psarou beach which is also just down the hill from the hotel - don't try and walk at night though the path is crazy.
While there are funkier hotels on the island I'd stay here again for the central location and the really friendly staff.

We stayed at the hotel at the beginning of July 08. We found our stay abosolutely amazing and completely changed our perception of Mykonos. Definately recommend upgrading and getting the Deluxe Sea View, as the views are beautiful.

The staff were very friendly and ensured our stay was flawless.

The rooms are clean and spacious, lovely bathrooms and enjoyed the fact that there was a double bed and not the standard two singles pushed together.
The breakfast balcony offers amazing views of the lovely pool and spa area and the dinner balcony highlights the spectacular night view of Mykonos. The Breakfast buffets and dinner menu is fabulous!!

Definately reccommend The Palladium and would stay there again in a heartbeat!!

Fell in love with the place. Great rooms, great pool, great breakfasts, great location, but most of all, great staff. They were lots of fun, extremely helpful, and made my brief stay really special.
And if you don't fall for any of these, you'll definitely fall for Maria - a face to launch a thousand ships!

A charming small hotel in a very quiet location. Its well maintained and spotlessly clean. All the staff were so helpful, friendly, fun and professional. (Hello everyone!) Its a relaxing hotel, perfect for couples wanting peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of Mykonos Town.

We booked a 7 night stay at this stylish boutique hotel after being encouraged by the generally very positive reviews on tripadvisor and having visited the hotels website which shows lovely pictures of the rooms, pool, restaurant etc. We generally don't like package hotlidays or hotels that cater for the masses and were looking for something stylish and with a touch of luxury but without being overly expensive. The hotel did not dissapoint and we cannot rate it highly enough. It was beautifully designed with lovely decor and sumptous and stylish public areas. The views from the rooms and restaurant were fabulous looking over the bay and down towards the beach, and the pool was equally lovely (and very clean). Nice comfy loungers around the pool (with cushions). There were some lovely touches like - proper hairdryer in the room (not those useless things attached to the wall in the bathroom) - fluffy bathrobes and slippers, towels for both pool and beach, etc. It was a 10 minute walk down the road to the beach with good choice of restaurants and a couple of cocktail bars, or, if you were willing to brave a slightly steep walk down a path just down from the hotel you could walk down to another beach.

If you want somewhere styllish and not too big, in a peaceful area but with close access to nice restaurants and 2 good beaches (with loungers and cushions!), then you can't go far wrong with this hotel. Its proximity to Mykonos town (10 minutes by car) was also ideal.

One tip - don't rely on being able to use taxis to get around - there are only 33 on the island! Either use the buses, or better hire a car (or moped or quad if you are braver).

  • Liked — The little extra touches like bathrobes and slippers, hairdryer, chocolates, beach towels etc.
  • Disliked — They tended to deliver clean beach towels quite late in the evening, one night we had gone to bed.
