Greece is the word, but if you need another, it should be Mykonos. One of the nation’s most famously beautiful islands is also arguably its most happening vacation destination, with parties that start when the sun goes down and don’t stop till it comes up. Of course, there’s lots to enjoy in the daytime, too – beaches and boat tours, ruins and restaurants, windmills and wineries. You’ll hardly even know when to catch up on sleep.
Of course, you have to get some shut-eye sometime, if only to rest up for another day or night of sightseeing or dancing. To that end, you want a home base like Hotel Petinos. A newly renovated, traditional-style Mykonian gem, this charming property offers stripped-back interiors, a cute Greek restaurant, close proximity to Platis Yialos Beach and a balcony or terrace with adorable views in every pretty bedroom. So you can focus on sunbathing on the shores and sipping ouzo spritzers on spiraling stairways, and leave the rest in good hands.
In soothing sea blues and earthy tones, tranquil Standard Double rooms each have a private balcony or terrace overlooking the pretty gardens.
With dainty white tables and a menu of fresh Greek and Mediterranean dishes, the Blue Myth Restaurant spills out onto a pretty sea-view terrace. There are weekly nights of lively Greek music and dancing, with plenty of local wine available.
The Greek island of Mykonos is known for its great beaches, and Petinos Hotel is located just a short stroll from Platis Yialos Beach. This long stretch of golden sand is easily accessible from the hotel, giving you ample opportunities to work on that tan.You can also hop on boat rides from here to explore other beaches on the island. The other attractions that the town has to offer are just a short cab ride away, like the pretty Mykonos Old Town, where you can explore historic buildings and churches.
How to Get There
The hotel is in a great location, however, this is the budget one of the group. The sister hotel across the road - the one with a pool - is great and the Patinos Beach Hotel is also excellent. I would not recommend booking this one. It is very small, the reception staff are not very helpful, an could not speak English very well. The air condition unit was leaking water and we reported it every night but it was never fixed. The Hotel is very close to the beach which was excellent. Do not fall for the trap of the "Greek Night" at Blue Myth. This is the hotel just promoting business for themselves. It is overpriced and very average food. I would say rather book elsewhere.
The room was clean, bright and spacious with a little balcony overlooking a lush courtyard.
It is located right on the beach and next to the bus stop to get you into the town.
There are restaurants steps away and you can take the little boat taxi to Pardise Beach for 10 Euro.
I would have rated this hotel slightly higher, so let me start with the reasons for the low rating... The bathroom is soooooooo tiny and thd room itself is quiet spacious, just bad architecture or design, I guess. The matchbox bathroom just made things a little less comfortable. And on the day we arrived, the bathroom was completely flooded by the water from the shower, so we found ourselves cleaning up the water on our first day there. The issue was eventually resolved, so that's a plus.
Now for the good stuff😊... The hotel and rooms were exceptional clean. We arrived in Mykonos very early and although we arrived hours before check in could open, we were checked in upon arrival. The staff was very friendly - from the front desk to housekeeping and the restaurant staff. Breakfast was really good with lots of options on offer. The fresh orange juice was a definite hit!
The room on the lower level had a small patio facing the courtyard/garden - very nice with waterfall adding to ambience. The bathroom was very "petite" - had to close the door partially too get around to the toilet. The most bothersome feature was that my room was the first one at the bottom of the stairs coming down from the lobby. The lobby - very handsomely decorated in a modern style - was nonetheless very open and clad with a marble floor as were the stairs. Extremely noisy as there was nothing to buffer all the chatter above when tour groups assembled and when guests tried to navigate lugging suitcases up those marble steps, they were right outside my door....no elevator. The breakfast buffet was comparable to other hotels -a variety of items to choose from - but the fresh-squeezed OJ was especially good. Location adjacent to the beach was beautiful and popular with tourists as they bussed in from other locations to snag lounge chairs right at the water. The hotel across the street (similar name) offers a pool, which this does not for anyone interested in that but guests may use it if they want to. I found that the majority of hotel pools are not heated; swimming in the ocean is preferable.
This Hotel is generally ok, but lets itself down by not paying attention to the little things which are easy to do but are neglected.
Poor Spotty Internet
No Tea/Coffee or Spoons in your Room
Not asking us if we want a Hotel Shuttle pickup which we later found out they provide
Old faded and worn Beach Towels
Could really do with some attention to detail on the small things.
