We spent 10 days here in a junior suite in June/July. The hotel is spectacular with amazing sea views, fantastic arcitecture and a top notch beach/pool area. We were there with 2 small kids (10 months and 3,5 years), and it all went smoothly. Good restaurants, especially Isola and Flame. Kids club was excellent (thank you, Maria). The all the... More

This hotel welcomed us with drinks and great service throughout our stay, including a managers reception on the patio. The resort is beautiful with views of Spinalonga. The charming town of Plaka is just next door, a 5 minute walk, and is a wonderful place to try the local seafood restaurants and shops. While at Blue Place, we visited Spinalonga... More

I find that at a 300+ euro/day range it is harder to decide if a stay is worth it. You are at the higher end of prices in Crete, and wonder if there is better bang for buck. However, my wife and I found this hotel to be worth it overalll, here are some reasons why: 1. Private beach -... More

Having read some recent reviews I was concerned that the Blue Palace had perhaps changed hands. Concerns over staff, breakfast choice and some restaurants caused me concern. Fortunately some of our reviewers misled me. Starting from reception, through room service due to a late arrival, the quality of the room and pool, breakfast, the stoney beach, pools, lunch, the spa,... More

We stayed here for 5 nights at the end of August, in a bungalow with a pool. It was a great experience! Such a great view!! Our-very spacious- room was just facing the Spinalonga Island! At several occasions we ordered room service and enjoyed it at our patio overlooking the bay!!! The only major problem we had was our next... More

We stayed for five days in May 2015. Great location for quiet holiday. The rooms are great, the staff very helpful. Wonderful breakfast with unlimited choice. The restaurants in a hotel are also very good.

We stayed here for 7 nights in mid June and had the best experience. We had a Superior Bungalow which was incredibly spacious, full of all the amenities you could need and a stunning view from the outdoor terrace. It was so lovely that we had room service here several times to enjoy both the privacy of our own outdoor... More

We loved the rooms with the large plunge pools! Very spacious with a good bathroom and general amenities. The service at this hotel is wonderful. Everyone is so nice and helpful. The large pool by the shore is outstanding, one of the nicest hotel pools ever! The lovely bar areas and seating areas around the reception area are fabulous and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on a short trip to Crete. It was a relaxing beach vacation. The beach area overlooks the Sea of Crete and it was refreshing to swim in the water to cool off. There are plenty of beach chairs arranged in sets of two and separated by pebbled baths for privacy. There are also two... More

We stayed for six nights, in a sea-view Junior Suite (excluding private pool). Hotel staff were always helpful and attentive. The rooms are very spread-out away from the reception, so expect short walks when going to and from room to restaurants, the gym, beach etc. Cannot fault it, lovely hotel, and well perfectly located.
