Directly behind the harbor, a couple of stairs up, this pension is built on several terraces with view of the harbor and bay. The higher you get, the better the view, and the more sun you will get. Owner is super friendly, the rooms are spacious and clean. Each has a small terrace or veranda and there is also a... More

Lovely people, a wonderful view on the town and bay and a very clean and cheap accommodation. I would totally recommend it to travellers looking for an authentic, private yet welcoming experience in Katapola, Amorgos.

We arrived at Amorgos without reservation and luckily Phannis found us at the port and suggest us his place. The room is simple but clean, the bathroom is quite big and there is AC and Wi Fi. We really enjoyed the view on Katapola bay from our balcony! The fridge is very convenient and our bed was cleaned up every... More

We visited the big blue this summer for 4 day. Fanis, the host, was really helpful and kind and welcome us with a big smile! Our ship arrived at 2 in the morning and he did bother to stay awake and help us to carry our heavy luggages. The pension has the greatest view to Katapola village! It is peaceful... More

Our stay in Amorgos was not planned. Thanks to the meltemi wind we got there. We met Phani at the port and it was "love at the first sight" :-) The big blue pension location is wonderful, prices are good and the personnel is ready to please you. Amorgos is a very beautiful island. We will come back for sure!... More

We stayed here for one night before going island hopping to the Little Cyclades. We wanted to stay somewhere close to the port because we had to catch the 6am ferry the following morning. The guy from Pension Big Blue assured us it was only a 2 minute walk away so we followed him up the cobbled path and then... More

I've been going to the Big Blue for many years. Phani is always warm and welcoming and ready to please. The views from his rooms are magical - and you can watch the Skopelitis mooring. His prices are good too. Katapola is a lively port with lots to look at and small enough for the locals to remember you.

We visited the pension since July 27th and we stayed for two weeks. The room was not as good as we thought,but it was clean and tidy, and it was a bit overpriced because of the high-season prices. However, the owner is a really kind person and he helped us with anything we asked. For that reason, the pension worths... More

This was our first stay in Pension The Big Blue and we've booked to go back next year. The Big Blue is near the port in Katapola so if you like to watch the boats coming and going this is an ideal spot. The Pension is owned by Phannis and Anna and they are truly lovely people. They want you... More

“Ground rooms are passages to other floors' visitors. 1st and 2nd floors are recommended. The higher you are, the better view you have, but during summer it is more windy.”
