“A bit tired”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

We booked this hotel very last minute and having come from the most amazing week in Santorini we were quite disappointed. The first room we were in was REALLY damp and after moving rooms and being shown around quite a few of them in the hotel first, it appears that this is a problem they have throughout the hotel. I definitely recommend trying to book a room high up with a balcony rather than with a private pool because these were all smelt horrible.

The staff were very helpful and friendly - we really couldn't fault them - but unfortunately parts of the hotel are looking pretty tired now. In both rooms we had a problem with the bath and an old swimsuit that someone previously had left behind and the cleaners hadn't removed.

The real downfall though was wifi. It just doesn't work unless you are sitting in the reception. For a 5 star hotel charging this amount I just didn't think this was good enough. They tried to claim that it was a one off not working but after 6 days and the same situation it clearly wasn't true.

Overall we had a lovely time but I definitely wouldn't rush back here for the price.

The service at Mykonos Blu was outstanding during our 10 day stay. High marks for Vassiliki, who is in charge of the Villa section and always went the extra mile to make sure we were having the best time! Great location, APIVITA products, great food, excellent bed, and amazing view!

We have a mixed review of this hotel. Firstly, the position is great - most sheltered beach on a very windy island, with the added bonus of including the famous nammos resteraunt - great food, dancing on the tables with "the beautiful people" - fun! But back to the hotel. We were met at the port by the handsome and charming Nikos who seemed to be available whenever we needed him during our stay, with a ready smile and lovely chat to drive us to town. Indeed, all of the staff were charming and incredibly helpful ( but not always efficient - however, after 2 weeks in Greece, we are starting to understand that efficiency is not a given). Nevertheless, the staff, particularly Phillipe, went out of their way to help us with whatever we required. We weren't happy with our first room and were upgraded to a lovely, large, light, airy suite with a great view of the sea. However, considering what the charge is at the hotel, I was shocked at a) the uncomfortable beds and pillows ( really hard mattress, like a rock and pillows so soft and thin, I slept very badly most nights) I mean really old, didn't know they still existed old) wall hair dryer liked something from a cheap motel - really appalling. No bottled water in the room, poor toiletries, cheap soap ( luckily I had swiped one from our last hotel incase of this!) The first room had a broken drain in the shower and a pair of dirty knickers behinds der the bed, the 2nd room had a broken toilet flush and broken hair dryer nozel. But the most annoying thing about this hotel was the wifi..there basically was none - it simply didnt work. Maybe. 5 minutes here or there, but really, nada. We must have spend a couple of thousand dollars using our data roaming st that hotel - and we feel like sending them the bill. Guests would be happy to pay a daily rate for wifi that works, rather than have a free service that doesn't work. Although the staff tried to pretend that it usually works, many guests were complaining of the issue. It is really not acceptable at a hotel which charges such a high rate to have this issue. It caused us too much stress and wasted precious holiday time, leaving us with a bad memory of Mykonos Blu ( but a good memory of nammos restaurant!)

I have spent five days in sea front appartment with a girlfirend. Hotel is situated few minutes ride form old city. It is necesary to rent some transportation - bike, quad or small car. Rooms are clean and nice, beach is couple of steps away, pool has a magnificent wiev and the gym is well organized and equiped.
I would add a realy good food with a nice wine list in the Taverna restaurant. Staff is friendly - we were given a room free of charge for late check out and free airport ride as well.
All togeather - a place to recomend.

stayed June 2011, had just come from Athens and was our first overnight stay on a greek isle.

Very rustic cave like rooms which we loved great ocean views a very well located resort.

great restuarant on the beach. we stayed with a large group but would reccommend for romantic getaway and I would stay here again as thats why I am writing this some 11 months after we stayed as we are looking it up again. Mykonos is a truley lovely isle but we found Santorini more to our liking but want to do both again. The beach is picturesque and private but the water is freezing compared to what we are used to in Australia and those pebbles are annoying. Large resort pool with great view of beach.

overall a nice greek isle experience.
