“Wonderful hotel in Pollonia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

Stayed at Kapetan Tasos this September for about 4 nights. Pollonia is a terrific little port town with wonderful restaurants--I loved staying on this part of the island. Kapetan is set back from the main part of town, in a quiet stretch if road, only a 5 minute walk away from the center of the town. While the location is nothing spectacular in terms of view or the property grounds/surrounding lot, the hotel itself is really wonderful. The rooms are impeccably clean, spacious, comfortable, with lovely design aesthetic and high end amenities in the suites. Room #5 was quite roomy and comfortable, with great light, and had a nice little balcony where I had breakfast served daily. This room has only a partial sea view, but I imagine other rooms might have a better view onto the sea. The staff is friendly, professional and very helpful--both Stellas (#1 and # 2!) are terrific and made my stay just perfect. They gave great recommendations and helped with all sorts of requests in terms of bookings, tours, and car rentals. My stay here was quite nice and I would definitely recommend it to others--it is a lovely boutique hotel option on Milos.

We loved our stay at Kapetan Tasos. Great rooms and so calm and charming. We felt very much at home. The staff was always very nice and friendly. The kitchen area had everything you need. The room was exceptional clean and the housekeeping never bothered us.They were efficient and discret. The swimming pool was a good surprise, as it doesn't mention in their website. Generally we had a great time in this hotel and we will recommend it in the future.

We stayed at Kapetan Tasos Suites for 5 nights and had an amazing time. We booked the biggest suite (number 13), which has 5 balconies, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchenette and a lounge area. The décor was beautiful and the view from a couple of the balconies was the waterfront, which was beautiful. The bathroom products were Korres, which is a brand we really like. The rain-shower was a bonus. Even though we travelled as a couple and didn’t really use the second bedroom, it was great to have all this space to ourselves. Suite 13 is big enough to fit 2 couples travelling together.
All staff members were very friendly and helpful. Both Stellas were lovely.
We even had our clothes washed and dried for just 7 Euros.
Pollonia is a really nice part of Milos, with great tavernas and restaurants by the water. The waiters at Gialos restaurant were super-friendly. The Angus sirloin steak and the octopus stew were delicious.
We rented a car through the hotel for just 20 Euros per day (September is off-season). It’s the best way to explore the island of Milos. Our favourite beach was Sarakiniko – it looks unreal.
Overall the hotel was brilliant and we’d definitely stay there again. It included free wi-fi and had a small gym and a quirky swimming pool/jacuzzi, which you can book in advance if you want to just swim with your friends or partner. The pool water is cold, but the weather was very hot, so it was perfect. The nearest beach is a 5 minute walk from the hotel.
We didn’t order breakfast from reception during our stay, but the kitchen had everything: from a kettle and a big fridge/freezer to a cheese grater and all the cutlery and plates you’d ever need.
Just a few areas for improvement:
- a few more tv channels would be great, and with better reception
- the treadmill in the gym was noisy and needs fixing. Also, it’d help if it was facing the mirror, rather than the wall, or a TV. It’s great that there’s A/C in the gym, but a water cooler and some entertainment in the form of a TV would be great.
I would still give this hotel a top score, particularly as our suite was one of the nicest rooms we’ve ever stayed in. Our suite looked and felt like the perfect greek island holiday home.

Our week in Kapetan Tasos resort in July was the most idyllic beach holiday we have had so far. Located in the port town of Pollonia on the beautiful island of Milos, the resort was a luxurious home-away-from-home. An efficient and friendly staff ably helmed by the elegant Stella helped us with dinner bookings, car rental and anything else we needed. The resort is a very short walk from the beach and not much further away from two of Milos' best seafood restaurants, Armenaki and Gialos. A definite thumbs-up!

We stayed in Kapetan Tasos during the month of july for more than ten days and we just can say positive things about it. The place is very calm, a bit out of the center, in a nicely renewed white house. The location of the hotel is not so special in the sense that the hotel is surrounded by other buildings and an empty lot but we had a nice view of the sea from our two balconies. We are a family of five and since the superior suite was already taken for the period we stayed we were given a suite with one sleeping room for the parents while the kids slept in the living room. The little kitchen was good equipped, and we had two bathrooms. The pool is quite little but very nice and provided with towels and everything for the shower. The hotel was very clean. The staff is very friendly and always took some times to know if everything was fine and we had had a nice day. We highly recommend Kapetan Tasos.

We came across the Kapetan Tasos by accident but it turned out to be a happy one. We rented the top floor apartment and the place could not be nicer. Nearly all of the balconies had great views and its location was within walking distance of the beach and nearby stores. Pollonia is not very developed so one should not come to the village expecting more than what it is but the inn met all of our expectations - an adequate kitchen to avoid eating out every night, fantastic and roomy bedrooms and comfortable beds, modern bathrooms with the best of everything and a helpful staff that were willing to work with us and help us at every turn. If something negative can be said is that there was not information about certain things, such as a dial in our place that effected the hot water for the entire complex. However, on the whole, it was a wonderful stay and I highly recommend it.
