Not easy to give a fair assessment of our three days at Milos Cove as it combines a unique setting and architecture with some "ingenuity" of a family pension. The setting: unique, breathtaking view, volcano stones, nested at in the end of a remote part of the island it could by itself make it worth it. Small caveat are the road to get there (dusty, full of potholes, steep, rent a small 4x4, not a scooter!!) and the fact that you are remote from everything, coming back from diner in full night has a bit of adventure feeling. Access to pebble private beach is through a dusty steep road where remains of construction are still visible (what about some stairs down?) The hotel: the architecture is beautiful, modern design, elegant without being opulent, hats off to the architect...BUT it's not finished yet, yo you have construction workers all over, the Spa and Gymn are "temporary" (the latter is a dark underground tiny sweat-room, a joke at this level of Hotel). Rooms are similarly well designed (though the std one is quite small) but some design "incoherences" like the transparent shower where you can be seen from the rest of the room, seriously it should be at least dimmable. Additional bad luck, Internet was down very often. The staff & service: the owner welcomes with charm and tales the time to play the island, makes you feel at home and is always around. The staff is very nice (with possible one grumpy waiter exception) but at times makes basic naive mistakes (e.g. forgot fresh towels, when asked only the big ones were changed, water in the room was forgotten...etc..) The Food & Restaurant: honestly maybe the most disappointing part. The breakfast buffet is Ok but could have more variety (Ok logistics might not be easy) but it was the dinner that was the low point. Whilst the presentation was nice , the mozzarella / burrata were of real average quality and the fish "medium" was dramatically dry and overcooked. All this for €160 is not acceptable. The service again mixed super friendliness with some ingenuity. But that is easily pardoned. All in all the place has great potential IF you want to be far away from the world without many activities...but still a lot of work to bring it to the 5 star level...we might come back to check it if we hear about the improvements
Milos Cove is breathtaking at first glance. Spending two days there is lovely. Staying longer is when I noticed the cracks. As the hotel is so isolated you need to rent a car- don’t try to stay and lounge in the hotel for days the menu won’t sustain you. The options for lunch are limited. The dinner menu is slightly bigger although still basic- one chicken dish, one lamb one beef etc. we stayed 4 nights and after 3 we had to rent a car because I simply couldn’t eat there again. I would love to see this place have some daily specials to mix it up a bit. The wifi drops in and out. Laundry prices are extreme. Pack mosquito repellant they are everywhere of an evening!!! The road to the resort did not bother us and it’s definitely worth it to see that amazing view. I have no idea why some couples turned back, obviously never been 4WDing before. Onto good things- The staff are phenomenal, very kind and eager to please. Mario was the best!!! The rooms are clean and well looked after. Dual shower heads are great. Our outdoor pool was a nice addition although a little cold to swim in compared to the regular pool. I would come back purely because of the staff and the view.
Charming, quiet, délicate and refined , Milos Cove fully deserves 5 stars for sharpness of all détails. Reaching the end of the earth , you really could feel that you're out of this world... Very nice people too. Highly recommended !!! We'll be back !
Magnificent, brand new 5-star villas in a beautiful, isolated location. Rooms were large and comfortable. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Food was absolutely divine (great chef) and views to die for. Also included a lovely, private beach. A wonderful stay full of smiles. You'll love it....and the bonus???? No kids under 10 years allowed. Being very new, we really hope people frequent Milos Cove Resort...you won't regret it. It deserves every success
We were only in Milos for 3 days/2 nights but fell in love with the island and only wish we had more time. Overall we had a wonderful stay at Milos Cove: the staff/management were extremely welcoming and friendly, the daily breakfast included & dinner was delicious, the views were breathtaking, and the rooms spacious and clean. If you’re looking for a hotel that’s off the beaten path and are up for a little adventure to get there, the exceptional views, amazing infinity pool, and a few days of solitude in paradise is well worth it at Milos Cove. However, if you’re looking to casually roll up to an island resort in the same way you would in Mykonos or a Caribbean island, than I’d recommend staying closer to town or honestly suggest exploring a different Greek island. If it was super easy and accessible to all, (which isn’t possible since it’s an archeological site protected by their government so the road can’t be paved), it’d be less of a hidden gem and too touristic to be as enjoyable. Milos Cove is a relatively new hotel so there are some things they need to improve upon if they’re aiming to meet the overall 4-5 star hotel experience they’re striving for and charging for. However in the end we did enjoy our stay more than expected since I booked the hotel before it officially opened last summer and read some concerning reviews shortly before our arrival in September. Rooms: Spacious, modern, and clean. However too many light switches and hidden furniture so was a little confusing. The beds were very comfortable and the decor fit the location really well. They were still under construction but wasn’t disturbing, just that certain things didn’t always look as you’d expect (i.e towel rack on 1st floor bathroom was a screw in the wall, the entrance door to our room kept getting stuck). The showers were wonderful! We booked a Seaview Deluxe Room with a private pool but upon arrival they told us we were ‘upgraded’ to a 2 bedroom villa still with a “private” pool. We were a recently engaged couple, so there was no need for 2 bedrooms. Also to clarify: ‘private pool’ meant its was our pool to use, but there was no privacy factor whatsoever, so a bit misrepresented. Our “private pool” in our ‘upgraded’ 2 bedroom room, faced a dirt path where the staff were consistently back and forth all day; no shrubs or anything. I felt more privacy laying out at the hotel infinity pool facing the sea than I did in our room’s private pool which was an extreme disappointment. When we asked to move to the room we reserved with some more privacy overlooking the cliffs, we were informed the 2 bedroom room was all that was available...not exactly a complimentary upgrade. In my opinion they did a very poor job of properly reserving the room we booked months prior and as resolution only offered to move us to the actual room reserved with more privacy for our last night. However we were out on a boat tour the following day, and didn’t get back until late so wasn’t worth it. Although we don’t watch much TV when traveling, the TV in the living room is mounted on a steel beam attached to the wall and comes out to the left side of the couch. The couch is facing the opposite wall so the setup doesn’t make any sense since you can’t even sit to see the TV unless you move the couch. Just FYI in case that this something more relevant to your stay. The 1st floor room/bathroom was nice but on the smaller side, but we LOVED the second floor bedroom/bathroom. Service/Hospitality: Excellent!! Super friendly, accommodating, and very professional. They left mini desserts in the room daily which were delicious and a nice treat to come back to. Our server Aexandrojs for dinner was so nice and we had a great conversation with him about the area. Another server we spoke with before we left even made a paper rose out of a red napkin for us! Upon our arrival, we even got to meet with the owner who explained the history of the location and some information about the resort which was really interesting, and a bunch of recommendations on a map of the island, They even left a little gift on our pillow which was a pleasant surprise our last night. The daily breakfast was wonderful, variety of options, and service was amazing! Price: The initial price I reserved for our room dropped for the days of our stay prior to our arrival (on Expedia) but I couldn’t rebook at the lower rate without a cancellation fee. I believe what we paid was a little overpriced for mid-September, but the more recent rates seem to be more reasonable based on the hotel’s location and the additional travel costs that come staying there. The dinner at the hotel’s restaurant was delicious, the prices were still pretty reasonable and quality of the food was well worth it. The pool bar prices/food quality are consistent to what I’d expect at a resort, which was fine considering the infinity pools and views were gorgeous. Location/Hotel Transport: The last 5-6km to the hotel is unpaved and you’ll need to rent an SUV. I usually book everything independently, but in this situation I’d recommend arranging you car rental through the hotel, since some rental companies have restrictions that will not allow you to drive on that side of the island. If you are renting a car, I’d arrange so you do the initial drive to hotel during daylight if possible, which honestly was not nearly as bad as some other guests described! I was so worried after some reviews, but if you’re following the Google Maps route from the Port /Adamas, they have plenty of Milos Cove signs along the way to guide you. We’re from NYC so rarely drive, but have driven on unpaved roads in Costa Rica which were actually harder to navigate at times than Milos, so not too bad for us. Also be mindful of how much gas your rental car has at pickup. Ours came with 1/4 tank to start (which I later found out is common) and under normal circumstances would be fine to get back and forth into town 1 trip based on mileage, but 4 wheel drive used up so much gas. There is only one gas station in Pollonia so we had to pay for the car rental company to bring us gas the night we arrived because we likely wouldn’t have made it to the gas station. If you’re renting a car from the airport, I’d highly recommend driving towards Adamas first (stop at the ATM or for a gelato), and then follow the route from there. We ended up on the backroad route back one afternoon (on a route closer to the airport) which brought us on a rugged “road“ that was the dirt path I read reviews about, without any hotel signs like the route from the Port. To make it even more confusing, Google Maps took us off course frequently because service was choppy. If you’re arriving at night the clearer route from the Port is definitely manageable, however if we ended up on this path our first night I’m not sure if we would’ve made it. The hotel does not do a good job communicating to guests in advance about the need of an SUV and doesn’t even warn you of this alternative disaster route Google maps may take you on if coming from the airport. Nor do they provide reasonable priced alternative for transport, or a daily shuttle into town, which is what I’d expect from a luxurious resort that is charging twice the rates than most hotels on the island. The property is gorgeous and overall we loved our stay and the property. I would definitely return next time we‘re in Milos, but if staying in Milos for 5-6 days I’d break it up and do 2-3 nights here and 2-3 nights in Pollonia.
Perfect 5 star hotel. Expensive but excellent in details. The pools are perfect and the sea water wonderful. The restorant.. one of the best ever. The owner doing his best for everyone and the stuf are grate.
Milos cove offers exclusivity and luxurious privacy in a beautiful greek minimalist earthy setting. Astonishing dramatic views of deep blue waves crashing into iron rocks and magical obsidian. Our honeymoon suite had two levels and all chalets have a swimming pool ot its own. There is also a great infiniti pool overlooking a private beach. Fantastic service. The chef created delicious elaborated vegan dishes evryday and a special menu for my wife’s birthday. Milfeue and vegan icecream!! Giannis, the owner would tell us stories of the island he loves so much and recommnded secret spots by car or boat, both of which we did. Yes, the drive is not on a paved road. So what? Any decent driver would get up there easily. Its part of its charm. If you want Santorini you should not even be in Milos in the first place. Milios, as a island, is basic, earthy, rocky, beautiful and unspoiled. We loved it and we loved Milos Cove. We will be back!! Jorge & Carmen
Milos cove What can I say, I just didn’t want to leave. If you are looking for spectacular sea views? Temperate pristine waters at a private beach in a remote allocation where you feel at one with nature this hotel ticks all the boxes. The hotel just opened this summer and was designed to blend in with the rustic white rock of the island. The rooms have a minimalist design with sea views and their own pool if you are seeking total privacy. The hotel infinity pool has breathing views of the sea and Rocky Mountain where you can spot wild goats on the cliff faced.The staff were amazing no request went unfulfilled. When we arrived we were met by the charismatic owner of the hotel Giannis who loved telling us about the history of the island and all the sites we should see. If you are a foodie the modern restaurant bar overlooking the sea is a must.The chef there had previously worked in a Michelin star restaurant in London and it showed in every mouth watering dish. The hotel has about sixty rooms which means no crowds . It boasts a spa for beauty therapy and gym for those who like to keep up with their exercise regime.. This Boutique hotel is modern , immaculate and the ultimate resort if you want to get away from the rat race and commune with nature and luxury. Grace And Livia Tsipos

Stay and and spend your holidays all around the high class services by a very lovely professional team !!! Delicious foods and a very nice fresh fish from the great restaurant with essential sea view balcony Happy staying in the Milos Cove
Spent 3 nights at Milos Cove recently for our honeymoon. The hotel isn't quite finished yet, but overall it's a great place to stay and should be great by the time it opens next season. Location: Milos Cove is in a secluded area of the island next to a beautiful private beach. Yes, it's a trek to get there from town, but the roads aren't as bad as many have made them out to be. It would be almost impossible to find if you were to drive there for the first time. I would recommend having the hotel set up a transfer from the port or airport and then having a rental car delivered to the hotel the following day. Once you've been on the road once, the hotel isn't hard to find. It would be nice if the hotel offered a shuttle to town every couple of hours. Service: The service was fantastic for our entire stay. Welcome drinks, free desserts brought to our room were a nice touch. Nikolas was our waiter in the dining room each night and he did a great job. He was very attentive and gave us great recommendations every night. Rooms: Rooms were very nice and newly built. The views from the room are stunning and our private pool was clean. Overall I would recommend Milos Cove to someone else. There are a lot of little quirks that need to be fixed, but the hotel is beautiful, staff accommodating and the food is delicious.
