Stayed for a week in August. Had visited the Elounda region of Crete and wanted to return. This resort is perfect for a restful, relaxing week away in the sun. It's 50 mins by taxi from the airport but when you arrive, the view across the bay to Spinalonga Island is amazing. It's a 10 minute stroll to the lovely... More

This resort is amazing. The views overlooking Spinalonga are incredible, especially at sunrise. In addition we were upgraded to one of the best rooms in the resort with its own infinity pool and a separate porch off the bedroom. The only reason this was not 5 stars was that the trip to/from the airport was long and expensive. While staying... More

We had a great family vacation. the rooms, the restaurants, and all other facilities where excellent. Sea front rooms overlooking the beautiful bay and spinalonga Island, quiet and nice private beach, polite and always ready to help staff. The only thing that we didn't like was the cost of the WiFi in the rooms. Overall an excellent hotel.

We had a gorgeous room with a private pool which we loved. The beach and public pool areas are lovely and the restaurants served outstanding food. We did get stuck on the incline that transports you to the beach...twice. But the hotel itself was just fantastic. The spa, however, was a disappointment. I am a 6'4" man and because it... More

We are just back from spending one week here. The hotel is absolutely beautiful set into the cliff face. After a while we almost felt we were taking the views for granted. It was like something from an idyllic postcard. We usually holiday in Dubai where standards are exceptionally high. There were a few faults with blue palace but the... More

Stayed 3 nights in their standard room which was awesome- roomy, clean & quiet. The hotel itself is amazing, spread over a Hugh area 250 rooms 4 restaurants great private beach and ample space for everybody. The "BUT" concerns the funicular designed to carry guests from the hill to the beach area. It is ridiculously slow and accommodates a maximum... More

Stayed there 6 days at the end of our Crete trip. It was really Relaxing. Nice rooms, perfect bed and nice staff. We can really recommend it for relaxing. The surrounding is medium nice, Plaka is OK for dinning in a fish tavern but avoid Elounda itself!

I Have just returned from a wonderful holiday at The Blue Palace. Although the hotel was much larger than I expected and was full, it still felt very quiet and exclusive . The staff were amazing, always remembered my name and always happy to help. I must mention Irini in the lobby bar who was so attentive, efficient and friendly.... More

Wow, what an incredible week we had at The Blue Palace. From the moment we arrived and were handed chilled lemon water, the staff really looked after us and made every moment one to remember. The bedrooms are clean and modern with comfortable beds and lovely showers and the views across to Spinalonga from all the rooms make the view... More

We have been fortunate to stay in some great places over the years, but this hotel really does stand out. The manager and his staff seem to have thought of everything that could be done to pamper and spoil their guests. We are already missing the breathtaking views from our room overlooking Spinalonga and splashing about in our little infinity... More
