We spend just 2 nights at the Big Blue. We had a slightly chaotic and off-putting start (no-one at reception and then some confusion over our booking of 2 seperate rooms). After climbing up 3 flights of steps, we found our top floor rooms which were very small - my friend's was so small we had to turn sideways to... More

If King Minos, was still alive, would prefer to make their holidays in Myrtos and reside in the Big Blue! We spent a week at Big Blue and greatly enjoyed our time there. Its location on the edge of the village made it a quiet and restful place to stay, but numerous good restaurants were only 2-5 minutes walk away.

Spotlessly clean rooms with balcony having wonderful views over the Libyan Sea. Staff are warm, friendly and very welcoming; the owner even parked our car for us. breakfast on the flowery terrace was very good. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the beach, although it is quite steep. very quiet and peaceful location.

Good hot water pressure (solar), although the shower curtain could use replacing. Big balcony overlooking the sea, 180 degree view from the studio room. Bed rather firm, the room is large and the kitchen quite adequate. It had a filter coffee maker, but we would have preferred a kettle. The place offers free wifi, but it was too weak from... More

We stayed as a family of 4 in July 2011. Room(s) - two rooms joined together to give a simple, clean family space. Large balcony, with simply stunning views over the bay. This had enough shade options that we could enjoy it in the morning, lunch-time and night. Air conditioning was sufficient to keep even newly arrived Scots cool enough... More
