Excellent hotel, with big and comfortable rooms. The staff is very friendly, the breakfast is filled with juices and fruits, and the pools (including a jacuzzi) are awsome!! Not to mention it is very close to Platis Gialos, a nice beach with a few good restaurants but not so noisy and crowded like downtown.

We stayed at the Palladium in August of 2002. The hotel had plenty of other travlers but it never seemed crowded. The rooms were kept clean and were nicely appointed and decorated. There was cable TV, air conditioning, a blow dryer in the bathroom, etc. Like all Greek hotels I have been in the A/C doesn't work unless you have your key in the special slot inside your room but it doesn't usually take long for the room to cool off.
We only ate at the restaurant there a couple times but the food was fine. There is a good taverna right down the street that has excellent Greek food and the boat taxi that takes you to all the beaches is only a 5-10 minute walk down the hill to the little pier and takes you to Paradise, Super Paradise, Elia and one other beach whose name escapes me. We had the hotel call us a taxi whenever we wanted to go into town - I think it would have been a hike trying to walk - and never had any trouble getting a taxi.
The pool was clean as was the hot tub (not hot). The grounds were well kept and had nice landscaping. It is not a huge luxury property, but more of a boutique hotel but it was exactly what I wanted. All the staff were friendly and helpful, the drinks at the bar were good and not overpriced. I will go back to Mykonos again and this is the hotel I will stay at.
Mykonos is awesome as is the Palladium hotel. Highly recommended.
