My husband and I, and our two teenage sons (eighteen and fifteen), visited Mykonos for the first time this Summer. We found & booked the Palladium on the internet with no personal recommendations, our only criteria being that the hotel should be near Psarou beach. For us, it really was a hot or miss situation: luckily, the hotel exceeded all expectations. I had spoken to Maria Economidou, the hotel manager, when we made our booking to inquire about the family suites and whether they would be suitable for us - as they were already full, we decided to go ahead with two double rooms. Before I spoke with Maria, we were still unsure but she seemed so friendly and helpful that we decided to go ahead. She even booked our ferry tickets for our later trip from Mykonos to Santorini, arranged our airport transfer, and helped us add another room for friends who decided to join us later.
This boutique hotel is a true gem. Although decorated in a traditional pallette of Mediterranean blues and whites, its' decor is chic,stylish and slightly whimsical ,with unusual aesthetic touches like the horse sculptures in the lobby. It manages to blend both traditional Greek elements and more contemporary aspects seamlessly.
Maria seemed to have taken my concerns about the rooms and my grown boys seriously and made sure we had beautiful, adjacent, first floor rooms. Ours was especially stunning with a romantic four poster bed and both had wonderful views of the hotel pool and the sea.
We couldn't have asked for a better location, with both the chic Psarou and the 'family friendly' Platys Gialos beaches, both practically at our doorstep. In fact, to our delight, Psarou beach was the closest to our hotel.The entrance to Mykonos Blu, currently believed to be the most trendy (and expensive) hotel in Mykonos is almost opposite the Palladium entrance.Taxis are often difficult to get at peak times, but there is a car and quad bike rental place very near to the Palladium and it's a great way to explore the island.
The breakfasts were impressive and although we never had a chance to eat in the restaurant, its view was stunning and I'm sure would ensure a very romantic evening.
I have to make a final mention of the staff and service as both were exceptional. Maria and Stavros both made our stay special, but everyone else we interacted with, from the barman to housekeeping, was also friendly and helpful. When we left, the staff lined up, shook our hands, and made us feel like visiting dignitaries! We were only there for three nights but it was too short...we definitely intend to go back next year and would highly recommend the Palladium to anyone planning to visit Mykonos.
