Our second visit to this hotel and from the moment we were greeted at the airport to the moment we were whisked past the waiting queue to check in on our return flight, it was a wonderful holiday. We returned under the Honoured Guest Programme and enjoyed an upgrade to a shared pool which was a real surprise and wonderful... More

First impression of the hotel very clean tidy great layout with indoor pool & outdoor pool & 2 nice small beaches with a larger one at the sister hotel next door,... More

Perfect location with two private beaches and a nice bar/restaurant in between. The hotel was located next to Elounda beach hotel which was the sister hotel. The Bay Palace Hotel was rather smaller than the other one which looked prettier. However, it would make more sense to reserve this hotel for adults only, because there're lots of small children making... More

I have mixed feelings about this place. First the good ones. Hotel is located in an excellent area. We were upgrade to a deluxe room, the bathroom was as big as the bedroom with a massage bed and work out bench. Excellent view of the sea. Wi Fi and parking is free. The buffet restaurant had ample choices of variety... More

From the moment we stepped into this hotel until the moment we left we had nothing but great service. Our room was lovely and spacious, the food in the restaurant was really delicious and varied and the amenities were great too. Our only warning would be not to bother with the Greek night, 30 euros each extra and unfortunately the... More

The hotel and staff are amazing - nothing is too much trouble and the service is outstanding. We arrived at the hotel at 2am in the morning and we... More

This has no doubt been a great hotel in the past and certain parts are still very good. However this should be marketed as a top "FAMILY/CHILD ORIENTATED" hotel. Travelling without children, I found this hotel to have many young children & families. There are no adult only or quiet areas and given there are 2 beaches and the size... More

My family and I spent 3 nights at this hotel; a veritable palace in the fishing village of Elounda. The service was top class, the rooms delightful, and the facility provides all that might be required for a luxury stay. For those looking for a relaxed stay on a beach, the position is perfect. For the adventurous, there are watersports... More
