Just returned from the Blue Palace and what a place! We're already planning a return trip. The resort is in a beautiful location and is so peaceful. It's right next to the tiny town of Plaka which has shops and tavernas and about 5km from the bigger town of Elounda. Our suite had a amazing view of Spingalonga Island which... More

An exceptional hotel. The professionalism, genuine friendliness afforded to each and every guest by the staff is second to none. Nothing was too much trouble and service was always with a smile. We would like to thank them all for making it a truly wonderful and memorable holiday. Beautiful coastal location with a mountain backdrop overlooking the island of Spinalonga... More

We will definitely come back here again, I have never felt so relaxed. The mountain views are simply stunning and the ambience is beautifully peaceful. Mid May was fairly quiet and the temperature 29c sunshine every day. We loved the nearby little town and ate out there every night. The restaurants on site are overpriced and a bit rubbish but...

We spent 3 nights at the Blue Palace as part of a 2 week tour of Greece. The entire trip was outstanding, but the end at this hotel on Crete was the frosting on the cake. We spent one day at the pool looking out at Spinalonga Castle. The next day we drove around Crete and explored. Breakfast at the... More

Very nice hotel. Nice rooms, overcrowded with furniture though. Nice pool in the room but restricted views due to architectural flaws. It is really not understandable how a low category room can obstruct the views of the highest book able category suite. Staff very helpful and kind with some weird exception of the room service staff and a few bell... More

Having been spoilt by the Carpe Diem in Santorini we came back to earth with a jolt in Crete. Yes - great setting. But is that enough? This is a very large resort -?and with that comes the attendant attitudes of many guests. I figure my attitude to the large "corporate chains" is maturing. This simply wasn't a great stay.... More

We felt really priveliged to stay at this wonderful resort hotel. The location is truly spectacular with incredible views of Spinalonga and other islands beyond.

5 Star I don't think so. Amazing position overlooking Spengarola Island . However no wi-fi unless you're in the lobby or a Fifty Euro extra charge for the week. All the staff are friendly but don't seem trained can't make a simple cup of English tea or understand simple requests. The food in the buffet is cold and there is... More
