Blue Place is a great resort. Front of the house staff is excellent, accommodations are very nice, Spa is beautiful and complimentary fitness classes are excellent. The best thing to do is to get a floating mat and float leisurely around the Aegean Sea in the Mediterranean. We also had wonderful authentic Greek food, wine and settings in each local... More

This hotel was the nicest place I have ever stayed at. The location, the breakfast, the staff, the spa, the restaurants, the rooms, the beach, the pools and the view. Everything was perfect! I will return. A special thank -you to Maria who works in the spa. What a lovely women.

We stayed at the Blue Palace (BP) as part of our visit to Greece in July 2015. Of all the hotels (mostly Starwood properties) we stayed out across Greece, this was by far the best. I have had the chance to visit over 75 Starwood Hotels worldwide and this is undoubtedly in the top 5. The hotel is situated in... More

We had a wonderful time at the Blue Palace. The resort has a beautiful location and everything is truly first class. We had a very spacious room overlooking the bay. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The restaurants were very good. My wife and daughter spoke very highly of the spa. My only complaint is that you have to... More

The Blue Palace in Crete was an amazing place to stay. An easy 1 hour drive from Heraklion airport, the views and accommodations were amazing. The hotel is built on the side of a mountain and takes about a day to get used to getting around, but once you do, you realize the beauty of where you are and just... More

The Blue Palace is a very large beach resort that's designed to provide you and your guests with all the activity you need on-site. While the individual facilities are up to standards (each of the five restaurants are very good, the many pools are well-maintained,etc.), the sheer size of the property makes it difficult to maintain the level of luxury...

Just back from a weeks break in July and what a week it was. The hotel is in an excellent location, 5 minutes walk into a wonderful town called Plaka and overlooking Spingola Island. We had a great room on the edge of the estate, some people I notice complained about the distances but we were not bothered by this.... More

The taxi whizzed us from the airport to this gem of a place on a warm July evening. A brilliant sunrise the following morning revealed secluded beautiful scenery; vibrant colours the like of which I've only seen in films. We were not only shown our room on arrival but given a tour of the main areas. The staff throughout our... More

Great value for money if you are looking for a "pool" holiday with the family. Location is stunning, and far away from the masse tourism. Taxi 5-10min (7eur) to elounda town with descent selection of restaurants and souvenir shops Service level is at a very high professional level, on par with most other 5star lux from SPG, LHW, four seasons...
