About this destination

In a remarkable seafront setting, the Mochlos Blue is a small, intimate hotel. At the gateway to the east, it offers countless opportunities for discovering a different side of this great island; a hidden Crete that’s often overlooked and every bit as compelling as the tourist trails further west.

Recently refurbished, Mochlos Blue ticks all the boxes – location, style and comfort alongside some beautifully individual touches that set it apart. The final ingredient is service, and a stay at Mochlos Blue comes with the promise of a warm and hospitable welcome from the owner George and his parents who have been hosting guests here for over 20 years.

Just six rooms enjoy all this fabulous spot has to offer; each simply but elegantly furnished, with supremely comfy double bed (three of which can be converted to a twin on request) and opening onto a balcony or terrace with uninterrupted sea views. Breakfast is served down on the pool terrace where the sound of the sea lapping against the shore is both soothing and uplifting in equal measure. It’s a hop and a skip to the sunbeds if a day of quiet repose is just what the doctor ordered and though there is no direct access to the sea from here, it’s only a short walk into Mochlos where the lovely little beach nestles beneath the charming array of cafés and tavernas.

Ideal for couples, Mochlos Blue is a boutique hotel which celebrates its place on the road less travelled. But teenagers also enjoy the freedom of being able to walk into Mochlos and families with children are very welcome in July and August. We may also, on occasion, offer the hotel as a whole for a large group of friends or an extended family gathering.

And enchanting though it is, Mochlos is not the only attraction. There are a number of other pretty villages in the surrounding area including Kavousi in the next bay along, particularly beautiful with a lovely beach, and Monasteraki, a hidden gem en route to Ierapetra with a delightful taverna at the mouth of the Ha Gorge.

But there’s no obligation to do more than relax and enjoy the moment. A ten-minute stroll from the hotel leads to the lovely waterfront in Mochlos and though it’s a sleepy place in essence, the cuisine is top notch and there’s a wonderfully creative eccentricity at its heart, that keeps it feeling vibrant and draws a discerning crowd back again and again.
