“Nice hotel overlooking the bay, but definitely not 5 stars”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

The hotel area and the rooms are generous and tidy. The location up in the hill gave the architect the opportunity to arrange the hotel complex on different levels. From one terrace you can watch the pool area, from another point you see the coffee shop and from nearly any point you have a phantastic view to the beach and over the whole cove with its water shimmering from green to dark blue.
The breakfast buffet was good and we enjoyed sitting outside on the terrace every morning watching the people waking up. The rating of the staff is with mixed emotions, some treated us very well, others......
The rooms are furnished in spartanic creek style, white chalked walls and floor tiles everywhere. The room was large but the foot fall insulation in the building was poor. I woke up every morning when the lady in the room above me, came home in her high heels.
Over few steps you can enter the beach offering deck chairs and umbrellas. Our favorite was the small fish restaurant there which offered simply prepared seafood at top quality, really delicious!
As we have been 3 bachelors enjoying the nighlife and relaxing during the day we noticed positively that there were no (screaming) kids in the hotel at all!

Room Tip: Try to get a room at top floor!

I have been visiting Mykonos Blu for many years now, and what i have to say is that every time is even better than the previous one! The rooms are spacey and clean, the view marvelous and the staff super friendly! Extra tip: it lies above Mykonos' best beach and offers exclusive seating to its guests!! Can't wait to see it renovated this year!!!!

We ended up at the hotel after leaving the Santa Marina, which was such a bad experience, we were happy to find another hotel room during high season.

The hotel is high above the bay, with wonderful views and great perches for breakfast and lunch.

The front desk staff was so helpful in all ways. For example, when they noticed we had been waiting for about twenty minutes for the scuba-diving company to pick us up, they called to see what was taking so long. We didn't ask them to to this, they just did. Turns out the scuba company had sent its driver to the wrong hotel.

We did not have the greatest room, but since it was a last minute switch in the middle of August, it was relatively great. There are nice Poseidon themed decorations and private terraces.

Overall this is a large hotel with a small hotel feel. They really care about their guest experience.

The hotel is beautifully designed with gorgeous rooms and views. The room was huge, private, and exceeded all of my expectations. I thoroughly enjoyed breakfast brought to our room by the friendly staff.

Plus, I was pleasantly surprised at check-in when the rate was actually lower than what we'd reserved. How often does THAT happen!

The uniqueness of the island is reflected through the minimalistic approach of the lobby as well as the fantastic views over Psarou bay while I realized the above the minute I walked into Mykonos Blu!

Welcome is very generous with cold towels to refresh you and a selection of
colourful fresh juices and champagne to choose from.

The rooms dressed in white and blue are situated on a hill allowing stunning views o fthe aegean sea.

Service is great with genuine smiles from a young team. The main advantage of the hotel
I would say it is its location, it is very close to town, occupying the left side of Psarou beach,
a beach that is not affected by the winds so even though it was windy the sea is always calm
good for swimming. Beach service is fantastic you literally can order anything you like from
Greek Taverna themed menu.

It was our first visit however definitely not the last...see you next year!

Room Tip: Prefer the ones with sea view at all costs!

We came to this hotel because I already loved swimming in this creek where the waters are as still as a swimming pool. I highly recommentd the water front Bungalows. They have a large balcony and an unobstructed view of the turquoise waters. Vibrant and energizing by day and very romantic especially in the evenings when the yachts have all their lights on and the moon shines on the water. The atmosphere is as lovely from the communal terrace on the lobby level, where the bar serves fabulous cocktails. We loved the resataurant as well where we had our dinners as well as the complimentary breakfast. The room seems to have been renovated recently. The decor was somewhat reminiscent of old school beach cabanas with blue walls and a mosquito net twin bed, which is perfect for two people in love. I loved the details like the floating red rose in the bathroom or the complimentary sweets they serve in the evening. I was also very happy to see so many Greek employees at the hotel, which really gave the hotel an authentic vibe. Needless to sat that the service was excellent.

Room Tip: Water Front Bungalows!!!!!
