“A very nice long weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Nice place, very calm and relaxing, nice swimming pools area. We stayed 4 days and everything was fine, we had a great support from reception and from all the staff ( a special mention to Tanos, a special guy who can solve any problem at any moment, out of being the preferred from our kid).
We had wonderful days and enjoyed the close beach of Plagios (waking distance) and Ornos, few minutes of taxi, and the city center with excellent restaurants.
My review is excellent,just two improvement areas:
1) service at breakfast was not a full 5 stars one, details and attention can make a big difference.
2) moving around Mykonos is quite expensive, no taxi available , driver service from 50euros...definitely too much for just some kms; if you don't want to rent looks like you havr no other choice.

We willcome back, we loved it!

From the minute we were picked up we knew we were in for a great stay. After budgeting all through Greece we splashed out in Mykonos and it was worth it. Welcome champagne & guided tour by Thannos (who I wanted to pack in my suitcase & take home with me... was a sweetheart). Room was great, ocean views, and quite possibly the most comfortable bed ever! Nothing was ever too much trouble. wish we stayed longer...

Buffet breakfast, best we had in Greece. Waitress was super friendly - customer service plus. Alex at the pool was the best, and George the bar tender was fantastic. FYI I think it's a prerequisite for staff to be incrediably good looking... eye candy heaven!

Bus to beach and town at the front door.

A bumper hotel for unforgettable holidays! We stayed one week at the end of june. Free private transfer from the airport to the hotel with a nice driver who took time to talk about Mykonos and the best places to visit during our stay.
On arrival at the hotel, in a dream decor, we received the warmest of welcomes.
The hotel is very beautiful; very good location in front of the best beaches, and close to the town and good restaurants. The room, with sea view, was spacious and decorated in a tasteful way.
Breakfast was great and offered a good selection of fresh food each morning.
But the best part of this hotel is the staff, extremely helpful, friendly and attentive. A big thank you to Thanos, for his warm and convivial welcoming, for his smile every day; he was always concerned to satisfy us and ensured we had everything that we needed to have a memorable stay in Mykonos.
Many thanks to Stavros, he made our breakfast more enjoyable thanks to his humour and his smile.
We would highly recommend this hotel, you won't regret it!
Please don't change anything! It's perfect!
We will go back again!

First we were impressed by the very friendly staff that made our stay very nice and comfortable.
The room was nice and clean but nothing out of the ordinary.
The breakfast was very good with good products overall and a cool waiter, Stavros.
The pool area could have a view on the sea and should be more open/less walls but it is good enough to spend a few hours and is very quiet.
It is at walking distance from Psarou Beach and the famous Nammos which is very convenient.
If you wish to spend a day on this Jet Set beach I strongly recommend having the hotel calling for you the day before and showing up before 10am..

Stayed in this hotel for 7 nights in July after reading good reviews, recieved a welcome drink on arrival which was a lovely start. beautiful small boutique hotel in a good location, spotless clean , as soon as you walk in always smelt really nice and fresh.

the staff were all friendly always a hello with a smile especially stavrous who is an amazing character who made us laugh with his storys

our room was clean with a small balcony overlookin the sea and bathroom was tiny, possibly the smallest 5 star bathroom ive seen, this is just a personal thing but i hate shower curtains, bathroom was a bit dated, ladies bring yr own hair dryer, the drier in the bathroom looked liked the end of a Henry vacuum, no power to dry yr hair.

Breakfast was very nice, lovely selection plenty to have something different every morning, fruit was very fresh. lunch was also very good

i would recommend hiring a car if you wanna see the island, we found some beautiful beaches with amazing restaurants. personally i didnt like the Plaltys Gialos beach far to busy and beds are to close to each other. Namos beach is a 5 minute walk down good if you wanna listening to music, good vibe down there and at 4pm music is turned right up and turns into a party.

taxis are hard to get and overpriced but theres a bus stop right outside the hotel that takes you to the town which was about 5-10 mins

i would stay here again if i found a good deal, i think it was overpriced but only booked it a couple of weeks before we went, overall a lovely trip but didnt think our room was a 5 star but hotel and staff were lovely

We recently had the wonderful opportunity to return to the Palladium and we stayed for a week in June 2014.
We were impressed by the changes made in the past 5 years and the improvements and renovations to the rooms and bathrooms. Everything is brand spanking new.
It is always wonderful to return to a place for a second time and ones romanticised memories are exceeded.
All the reviews of excellence is a good reflection of the wonderful elements of the hotel.
One aspect that is rarely mentioned is that the owner of the hotel is hands on and serves along her staff. She leads by example which creates a wonderful working environment for her staff which translates into a warm happy place for guests.
Keep up the good work guys and thank you for an unbelievable holiday. You do truly deserve the trip advisor awards of service excellence you so proudly display.

Having read the reviews,this hotel sounded pretty good but I did not expect it to be as brilliant as it is! This really is the best hotel I have stayed at, ever!
First of all, what really makes it stand out from other hotels iv stayed at has to be the most amazing, friendly and attentive staff, god do they do a great job. Every single member of staff couldn't have made us feel more welcome.
Thanos was great. What a really nice guy he was. Always friendly and happy to help.
The girls on reception were brilliant, always a hello and happy to make a reservation for us.
The guy who does the transfers to and from airport ( sorry I forgot your name ) he was brilliant and so friendly. I honestly can't praise the staff enough as this really makes the hotel what it is.
When we arrived we were greeted with a glass of bubbly and a cold towel which was very nice indeed :).
I don't think our room was ready so they upgraded us to their best suite for one night which had its own pool, jacuzzi and massive patio area over looking the sea. We couldn't believe it when the lady showed us our room. It was amazing! And for the rest of the holiday we were upgraded to a junior suite sea view in room 108(we had only originally booked a standard double) which was a very nice room. The chambermaid was very sweet and done a brilliant job on our room,two messy females sorry. She was really polite and always smiling.
The breakfast had a great selection of food, a really good selection of fruit, pancakes, Greek breakfast, omelettes to order and cooked breakfast. Also fresh orange juice that you do yourself was a nice touch. Stavros and the other lady (sorry I'm terrible with names)were brilliant. He's a good laugh. They were both relaxed and chilled yet working really hard. It never seemed like chaos although it could get really busy at times.
The hotel was lovely inside, extremely clean and smelt so fresh all the time. The decor was really nice.
The rooms were comfortable although one small thing I would have liked to have seen for a five star would be feathered pillows. The pillows weren't great but maybe that's just my preference. The bed was comfortable and the shower was really powerful although at a slant in the bath you still could have a decent shower.
One suggestion, this hotel would have been even better if it was adults only, purely because we had children in the room next to us and they were noisy and shouting till 2am which was slightly annoying, at one point we had to let reception know how bad it was and they were extremely quick to react and sort the problem out.
We would defiantly stay here again if we were to come back and would highly recommend to others if they were thinking of staying, you won't regret it!

We stayed for 10nights from 17/06

Room Tip: Top floor 108. Always sunny and great view of sea and beach.
