Palladium Boutique Hotel
Ranked #1 of 26 Hotels in Platys Gialos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 September 2011

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.

Posted on Behalf of Mum and Dad, early fifties - independent travellers.

After 5 nights in a 4 star hotel in Mykonos town, we caught a taxi to Platis Gialos and the Palladium Hotel. The taxi cost was 8 Euros and this was one of the rare occasions when we weren’t sharing a taxi. The 5 star hotel sits adjacent to Psarou beach, which is one of, or the best beach in Mykonos, in our opinion. The beach is divided with three clear sections which are the expensive bit to the right with a classy restaurant (Namos) with quality sun beds, a central free towel area and on the left hand side there is a self service restaurant with more basic sun beds.

We stayed for a week at the Palladium hotel on a half board basis and from the moment we walked into the hotel, and met Iasonas, with his pleasant smile (which continued all week), we could see that we were in for a quality experience. Beach towels, airport transfers and coffee making facilities are all provided free. The rooms are large with superior furnishings and all the dining and other facilities are of a very high standard. The view from the breakfast room and dining room looks out onto the island of Naxos in the background. (Psarou bay and a lovely sea view in the foreground)

The evening restaurant food was a la carte with a wide choice of options and good quality food. A lot of guests took photographs of how well the food was presented. The wonderful view of twinkling lights, the boats and the sea just added to the perfection of the meal

The hotel staff were all well trained and very professional, but in life, sometimes you meet an exceptional persona with a real talent for his position – Stavros, the man, who engages with guests in many languages, understands food and where to visit, and a nicer personality you will not come across.

The only disappointment was we hadn’t booked for two weeks. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday near nice beaches - this is a very good hotel choice.

My top tips are, try the restaurant at least once on your trip, as well as the hot tub, visit Mykonos town and ‘Little Venice’ to watch the sun go down at around 8pm. The bus leaves every 30minutes for Mykonos town and the trip takes 10minutes. Of course, take a good book too! The other good beaches are Ornos and Paradise as well as Platis Gialos, Paranga and Psarou where the fish nibble your legs in the crystal clear water.

This is the 4th year I've vacationed on Mykonos (my trips here are usually in the later part of August/beginning of Sept). Two of those trips I was able to stay at a friend's summer home right on the water (needless to say that is my favorite place). My hotels stays have been at the Apanema Resot (in 2009) and the Hotel Palladium, which I visited last week (Aug 29-Sept 2) with a lady friend.
I must say we were both impressed with the Hotel Palladium from the moment we stepped out of our car. We were warmly greeted by Jason and then offered a glass of champainge while we checked in. The room (409) exceeded our expectations- very large (compared to the Apanema and other European hotels), the bathroom was also spacious, great balcony with water views. As mentioned the staff was very friendly and helpful (I think Jason and the other two work 24 hrs shifts!). The breakfast in the morning was again superior compared to other 'free breakfasts..'. Numerous items to choose from (eggs, bacon, cereals, fresh fruit, breads, etc... to name a few.....) And again the employees get to know everyone! Very nice pool with bar service. Or you can take an easy couple minute walk to get down to a very nice beach.
The only down side to the hotel I could find was the elevator which seemed to have a mind of its own.... The good news is that you learn really quick (as in the first day you are there) to just take the nearby steps.
I would highly recommend this hotel!

A wonderful 3 days with our 13 and 9 year olds. The hotel thoughtfully provided us with a room with direct access to the Pool for our children. The parents (!) preferred a better view, so the most excellent Maria (the manager) herself took us around the next day to show us what else was available and we ended up with a double (i.e. one double bed parents and 2 kids beds) overlooking the beautiful bay and the hills.
We ate in the hotel each night and were served and "entertained" by Stavros who also on the second night arranged the most wonderful fresh fish dinner for us, with the catch of the day. All other food was equally delicious.
Quiet poolside lunches with the local vino, breakfasts excellent, rooms clean, hotel mini-buses and charming attentive staff all made for a successful break from the real world.

We arrived in Mykonos at around 7.30pm, we were not informed that there was free hotel transfers, but saw some other people boarding the palladium bus and managed to get on. We got to the hotel only to be told that our room was not available due to a "technical fault" and that a technician from Athens wouldn't be able to fix it to the next day. We were forced to be transferred to a very bland hotel down the road. This was very upsetting as we had paid top dollar for the Palladium and the other hotel was of no comparison. The staff were playing the whole situation down and could not understand why we would be so upset. Luckily, when we arrived back at the Palladium the next day we had been upgraded to a junior suite (which we deserved for the stuff around!!!)
This suite was very roomy, had an outdoor spa and rooms were attended to twice daily. Pool area was very quiet and it was easy to get a sun baking lounge. The pool bar staff and concierge staff were very friendly and made our stay pleasant. Breakfast was fantastic, along with the lunches ordered around the pool.
Hotel is in a good location, easy to get down to the beach or into town.

We had a very enjoyable last three days which helped us forget about the horrible first night!! Would consider staying back here and recommending to friends.

We spent only two days in Mykonos This August 6-8 at Palladium hotel the entire time we enjoyed the greek hospitality at its best.
All the staff was very helpful and treated us like they knew us for years.
Breakfast was served 11 o’clock (!) and it had great variety including fresh orange juice. We could order any kind of coffee to Stavros who was welcoming all the guests at the breakfast room trying to teach them how to say Good Morning “kalemera” in Greek.
Our room 108 was very clean with a very big bed and a balcony overlooking the sea.
The beaches are fantastic with crystal clear water.
We tried to explore all of them on an ATV but we did not have enough time.
There are many small and cozy restaurants all over Mykonos .The first night we had the most tasteful dinner at “Mayerio” which is a traditional "hole in the wall".
We tasted local food we had never before in Greece.
Our stay was too short and we will definitely come back to windy Mykonos at Palladium hotel.

This hotel was absolutely perfect. The service provided by the staff was the best I have ever experienced. Every staff member was helpful and friendly. My husband and I felt like we were welcomed by friends whenever we walked into the hotel. We enjoyed our chats with Stavros at breakfast each morning and Jason whenever we walked through the lobby. Those working the front desk answered every question we had. The room we stayed in was kept extremely clean throughout our stay. The location of the hotel is just a short walk from the beach and the bus would stop in front of the hotel, making traveling to town extremely convenient. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Mykonos and would return with no hesitation. We gave four stars for value because it was a bit expensive. However, we did stay during high season (August) and the quality definitely lived up to the price we paid.
