    Petinos Hotel / Apartments Plati Gialos-Mykonos 84


    Very pleased with the accommodation we was given which looked like it was for a large family rather than a couple having sleeping for 6 and had 2 shower rooms.
    Apartments are 1-14 all North West facing (Sun is sunrise to about midday) in a valley 5 minutes walk up-hill from the hotel/Sea. We stayed in Apt 8 that was a huge Self Catering kitchen & Living room area with fridge-freezer oven grill hob kettle Cutlery Pots pans. Bedroom 1 has 3 single beds with good shower room for 2 people and hairdryer. Bedroom 2 is identical to room 1 but double bed and single bed. All 3 rooms with a TV (average reception). Total area of apt about 45”x 18”. Outdoors full length patio with 2 tables and chairs. Apartment 1-5 appears to be room only.

    The main hotel which you have access to their facilities is beautifully located on beginning of beach. Seawater pool with diving board overlooked by the hotel apartments and restaurant but quiet while we were there. Beach is full of sun lounge’s only and hawkers at every restaurant/bar (the only place on Mykonos we experienced), which makes for an unpleasant stroll along sea front day or night. It is possible to walk along a track to paradise Beach (20 minites) and then also to super paradise beach (another 30 minutes) although through a couple of farms and over walls. Both are more relaxed beaches.

    Unique Quality: Petinos Hotel / Apartments
    Plati Gialos-Mykonos 84 600-Greece Tel+30 22890 22913
    Booked a last minute deal with Olmpic Holidays £232 for 2 Self-Catering 1 week including transfers Mid May 2011.
    This being our 2nd visit, the 1st being 2002.
    On the whole a good week holiday unwinding that the Greek Islands does so well.
    The big downer is the cost of living that the locals said is their Government Tax’s that’s imposed upon them. Restricts the amount of time you eat & drink out unless money no object for you. A buffet breakfast 12.50 euro, Lunch 15 euro and Main 25 euro all without drinks is the norm, so eating out every day would soon mount up.
    Tea 2.00,coffee 3.50,fresh orange juice 4.00,scambled egg 5.00 is average prices for the beach restaurants.
    There is 3 mini markets in this town all at extortionate prices so expect to pay up to twice a much as the main super market.
    The nearest super market (cheapest found) is half way to Mykonos town, 20 minutes walk on road (to Mykonos Town) with no pavement so be careful of traffic or bus 10 past the hour from hotel 1.60 euro. Prices all in Euros and subject to 9% added tax; milk 1.50 (1 Litre), Bananas 0.75.each, bread 1.00,tinned meatballs /vines 3.80, water 2.68 (6x1.5 litres), sun cream 20.00+, fruit juice 1.30 (1 Litre),6 eggs 0.68, Mythos Beer 0.95 (half litre) Biscuits 1.80,
    Opening Hours 9:00 - 21:00 except Sunday 11:00 – 15:00 hours.

    Recommended to pack other than the obvious if going S/C; salt & pepper, cereals, tea bags, cappuccino sachets, sugar, sauce sachets, risotto rice, noodles, toothpicks, T Towel, washing up liquid, dish cloth, Mosquito spray, Binoculars or spotter scope for star gazing,

    square and Kastro Bar every one got their laptops out. Hotel Internet is 6.00 euro per hr

Mykonos in early June???

by Pateri

Hello everybody! Im travelling to the mediterranian sea in the beginning of June and was thinking about Mykonos. Is the place already crowded and the discos pumping so soon in the summer? And is Mykonos better than Ios or Agia Napa for example...? Is the average clubber there a bit older than in other places? Im a 26 year old straight male.
Thanks for all help already in advance!!!
Gr. Paul

RE: Mykonos in early June???

by brotherleelove

Mykonos and Ios will be busy in June, although not as busy as late July-August. There will be plenty of nightlife. Ios? It's the #1 party island for 20-somethings and backpackers. Mykonos is mostly a more upscale crowd, mostly because it's more expensive there. Santorini is also a good option with an excellent nightlife in Fira and plenty of places to "get away from it all." Santorini isn't known for great beaches. Ios and Mykonos both have excellent beaches while Santorini's are all either black sand (HOT!!!!) or black/red volcanic rock. The beaches on Santorini might not be as good as the others, but the water is fantastic no matter where you are in the Aegean, so blue............ Have a great time.

RE: Mykonos in early June???

by NatassaPL

mykonos is a very nice island, on weekends in anyway has many visitors, cause many athenians they have their country houses there, and in friday evening the island is alive a lot. It still has a lot of homosexuals, but not like few years ago, but if you want to visin t islands, always a good proposal is Paros and Santorini, but be careful, dont go alone is Santorini, i have been once there alone and i got crazy. You should go with friends or your partner.
In the other islands you can go as you like.
For sure mykonos has visitors older than 20something... and for sure its more"luxurius' island, and its not full of drunk british like Agia Napa.
My best friends who are very often visitors in Myconos the are 37 y.o. and 40 y.o..

Travel Tips for Mykonos Island

Beaches of Mykonos

by sandysmith

There are many beaches to enjoy on Mykonos - some are more accessible than others. Some are off the beaten track but work exploring - like Panormos. Most charge for sunbeds and parasols for the day but others like Ornos and Plati Yialos are free if you are kind enough to use the services of the beach taverna asociated with the sunbeds - this is great if you only wish to stay for a few hours or a whole day.

Mykonos: The Paraportiani Church

by Phalaenopsis03

Considered to be the most famous church on the island, Paraportiani is actually a complex of five churches. Four of the churches were built on the ground to form the base, and the fifth was placed on top to form a central domed roof. Interesting stuff, huh?

Funny story, but originally, I insisted on deleting this only picture P.G. took of the church because I didn’t really care for it too much. Besides, we already had tons of pictures of churches. But now, after seeing the exact same picture on the web, I’ve come to realize its cultural and architectural significance. Thank goodness for P.G.’s sense.

Windmill was there for a reason..

by sylina


I did some research before going.. People said it's like Ibiza, the nightlife there is good. Unfortunately I didn't have the chance to check that out :) I had a terrible jet lag.. once it reached midnight, my eyelips became sooooo heavy. I could go nowhere but my bed.. during day time, we did a lot walking through the beautiful town.. interesting shops caught my eyes... Strolling along the small cobble alleys was the most pleasing experience. We went to paradise beach.. it was a pure party land.. nice to see..

One greek friend told me it's the most expensive island in Greece. He was right.. We spent 70 euros for lunch of 2 at little Venice with the best view and seafood.. 175 euros for a triple room on the small hill, has a wonderful swimming pool serves the best sunset view in Mykonos. so.. nothing to complain.. Every penny we spent in Mykonos was worth the price.

We were there at the end of August.. at last of the peak season. The weather was pretty nice though windy heavily. I asked the locals.. they said there are 8 months during the year are pretty windy here. I felt not very comfortable in big wind.. Especially on the paradise beach.. the water wasn't that warm as I expected... I only made a quick dip... it was too cold staying on the beach being wet.. brrrr....

"Tricking calmness"

Mykonos became famous amid sixties, when the european jet set and some liberal very rich people discovered the quiet, cheap, sunny, friendly, and permissive ambiance of the Cycladic Islands.
In fact after 40 years of a continuous and increasing wave of crowding tourists, almost all of this characteristics remains, except the low prices and the calm.
Today the prices are very high, even astronomically high.
And the friendly atmosphere... well, the greeks are friendly people no doubts, but like in every underdeveloped places where the touristic industry grows fast, often the money becomes more important than the traditional kindness or the good manners.
The quiet atmosphere?... well, you tell me...
At last, you shouldn't expect the classical greek spirit living in there, it's the opposite, is an extremely cosmopolitan and westernised ambiance.
Nevertheless there are an attractive highlight for visitors: it's the more liberal place of the eastern Mediterranean sea perhaps even the globe, involved in a strong competence with Ibiza in the western Mediterranean sea.
In this place everything is right, just dont bother your "neighbour", and you'll enjoy a bizarre human equality, because here REALLY doesnt matter your color, language, religion, gender or sexual preferences.
Nobody scandalize about nothing, and if you like this way of life then Mykonos is your place to visit even to living.
The wonderful blue of the Aegean sea still being there like always, sunny weather, and the beaches welcome a wide spectrum of minds and ways of life people, then, the most uncommon behavior become in a common fact, provided that you don't break the minimal convivence rules or even the greek law, of course.
Anyway, the first time, the amused Mykonos is a great experience for everybody, after that next experiences may be an indispensable part of your crazy free days forever, or in change you'll be a little bit annoying, more and more each time you visit the island. Because be possible that is always the same thing, an empty fantasy packaging offering to you just an illusion, fireworks.
I stayed in Mykonos five times, and now I am almost a victim of this strange "deja vu" feeling, nevertheless I get a lot of friends in there and I had great times with them.

"Dancing on the sand"

At few kilometers from Hora (the capitol port) there are one of the most famous beaches of Mykonos, Super Paradise.
A crazy mix between nudism, gay-lesbian, hetero, standard, exhibitionism, eclectic and snob character.
The music is present all the time, early (around noon) isn't loud, even is calm, but around two or three p.m. begin to increase and loud more and more...
So, music roaring may be dont let you talk at least you shout
Then when you arrive first look around of you and localize the huge speakers-woofers, after that for a calm sun bath try to find a place as far as possible from them.
If you dont, then just wait a minute or two to start dancing or die attempting later.
The right place for everything.

"Indifferent crowd, or..."

...just resting after a shaking night?
People in there are from all around the whole world, at least you will hear five or six different languages all the time. Friendship becomes easy, and communication is indispensable, as you can imagine.
No doubts that Super Paradise reveals the true nature of Mykonos.
