Great sea view from our room and balcony. Nice apartment equipped with what we needed (fridge, glasses, ...). Very helpful and nice host. We got a lot of advice where to go and what to see. Easy to locate and no problem to park the car. Hot water took some time and was a bit unstable.

Really nice bright rooms, good size and clean. Very good value for money. Just down thecsteps (on the corner) is a really nice restaurant - good seafood at very reasonable prices. We really like Myrtos for a three daybstay - any longer might have been too long.

Great small residence over several levels, in the stunningly well-located town of Myrtos (nothing like Ierapetra, which is a commercial centre 10 kms away). The proprietors are extremely thoughtful and kind, and in a short stay of two days we tested their generosity and patience. Next time we'll return and stay in a bigger room, but on this trip we...

Very comfortable, modern apartments and rooms with spectacular views over the bay of Myrtos and its beach. The people who run it could not be more friendly or more helpful. Each room or apartment is decorated in an individually-themed way. All have air-con, en-suite, fridges and balconies. Some the the apartments have terraces. I will certainly go back.

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...

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.

We are always very happy to stay at the Big Blue. A warm and friendly from the owners, Anastasia and Pavlos. They make this unique place a special moment where you feel like home.
