We cannot say enough nice things about our stay at Petinos Beach Hotel. The staff, especially Marina and Ares, were very attentive, helpful and responsive. The property has breath taking views and the place is very clean and neat. Our favorite part was probably the complimentary breakfast fit for a king! We highly recommend this hotel for your next visit to Santorini.
We booked the last week of the season, weather was still warm (although breezy) and it was very quiet :) Just what we would want as 2 teachers on half term!
Very pleasant stay, lady on reception very helpful (despite what others have said) half a glass of fizz on arrival and a map of what we need to see/ do.
Majority of things are closed as it’s the end of season which she told us on arrival, but there were a couple of nice restaurants, one attached to hotel and another 100m down the beach attached to another. Looking at pictures of how busy it can be I don’t think we would want to visit then anyway.
It’s not a cheap island - we averaged about £75 a night for 2 drinks starter and mains between us, but you know that when you book it. Go to Tenerife if you want a carbonara for 7euros!
Restaurant attached to hotel is where there is breakfast, choice was fine (clearly running out towards the end of the week) but fresh eggs on toast, yoghurt and fruit and a coffee is all you need anyway!
Downsides- rooms are not what you see in the picture. We got a good deal as we booked the night before we left but would not be paying full price for the ‘suites’. I think we were in a junior suite with a lovely huge 4 poster bed and balcony sea view - perfectly adequate for the two of us (but not what you see in the pictures). Corridors smelt of cigarettes and maidens were outside room early making noise (we are 2 hours behind in England so 8am for first few days was like 6am waking us up). Our room came with kettle, hairdryer, jacuzzi bath, tv, plenty of plug sockets, dressing gown, slippers and towels for beach provided. Easily do a week with a carryon.
It isn’t a 5 star hotel I would say a mid range 4* going on other hotel 5* standards we’ve stayed at (although the pictures on website will make you think differently). There is a little shop which sells basics drinks, snacks, toiletries etc and room toiletries are good!
We sat and ate breakfast watching the sea and pretty much had the beach to ourselves. (Pictures) Nice big Sunbed’s up high to over look the sea. Pool was dirty on the bottom, but guess end of season again not keeping the upkeep with a week to go? Poolside could do with a lick of paint, looking a bit tired (again being picky because it’s a ‘5 star’. A really pleasant stay, would recommend but if came back would stay somewhere else for the prices closer to Mykonos town that are a higher standard of 5*.
