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
Location of the extension property & room was a bit let down as we have to walk & then go down but the appartment was good with facilities. Breakfast was lavish & ggod served in a restaurant just next to the beach with amazing views all in all good experience would like to visit again staff was helpful & courteous.
My friend and I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The first room we were put in was very tiny, the key card didn’t work, the TV didn’t work, the water in the sink came out black, and we were right next to the road with loud motorcycles going right beside our room. When we went to the desk to try to change, we were told they were full. Fair enough, but the girl at the reception was not very pleasant or helpful. I contacted our travel agent and the next day we were moved to a much larger garden room - very quiet and very nice. That was much appreciated. However, the day reception booked a tour for us. When we arrived to go on the tour, the tour operator did not have our name on the list. Thankfully, they had room for us. We didn’t find either of the two receptionists very pleasant or helpful.
On the plus side, the breakfasts were excellent as were the dinners. The wait staff at the restaurant were all pleasant and offered good service. The hotel was located close to the bus so it was easy getting to Mykonos town. We felt it was a great location being away from the busy Town.
Around the corner from the hotel was the beach with lots of options for eating, even having a takeout pizza place. Across the street was the Petinos Beach Hotel and Resort. We could use their facilities as well.
Overall, other than the first glitches, we enjoyed our stay at Petinos Hotel.
Just returned from our tenth stay since finding this fantastic hotel in 2007!
Location is perfect being just a minute or so away not only from an excellent beach but also boats to other beaches and a bus stop for the ten minute journey to town.
All the staff are warm and welcoming. Eleni always provides a first class service with our reservation and airport pick up arrangements. Christina and Maria at the front desk also deserve special mention. Always smiling and extremely helpful!
Room sizes vary. We always choose a larger but quieter room further back in the garden area. For us "home from home!" A bit dark inside perhaps but lovely to sit outside with a fabulous water feature and bird song at sunrise and dusk.
Breakfast taken in the hotel's Blue Myth restaurant / taverna is first class with a wide range of hot and cold options. Blue Myth offers stunning sea views. Eleni behind the bar ( not the reservations lady ) is always cheerful and complimented by an excellent waiting team. Breakfast can be very crowded at times as large groups tend to eat early prior to their day out. 8.45 to 9.30 seems to be a quieter time.
Facilities are shared with sister hotel Petinos Beach across the road which houses a small swimming pool overlooking the beach and a second restaurant Thea, excellent for lunch and dinner.
All in all, cannot fault. Will be back for more!!!
