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.

This was our 4th visit to the Blue Palace - we love it here! (We tried Diaos Cove last year but didn't like it!). Everything was as expected & to a high standard, as previously. The only drawbacks are that there is little or no entertainment in the evenings, food & drink prices are much to high & do not... More

Beautiful hotel over looking the Island of Spinalonga. Beach area is especially nice, really laid out well with pebbled paths to all the sun beds. Stunning location, great service, fabulous facilities.

We stayed at the Blue Palace after a hectic 2 weeks of self directed sightseeing in Greece. This resort was the perfect spot to end our trip as we were ready for some poolside R&R. Their 5 star reputation is clearly deserved. Staff were as friendly and helpful as any I've encountered. We had a second floor room next to... More

This was my second time staying at The Blue Palace. From the moment you arrive until the moment you leave the staff is nothing but gracious and accommodating. The rooms is cozy with a beautiful view. The attention to detail is incredible. One of the great aspects of this resort is the private pebble beach with the sun beds on... More

We booked the island suite which is next to the main building -room 387. The suite looks different from the pictures, probably because not all the island suites are the same. It is spacious with a bedroom leading to a balcony with excellent view to the sea and the Spinaloga island of course and a living room with a large... More

Had a reasonable holiday in the Blue Palace - many nice features, but I booked in a rush and as a result didn't rearch it as thoroughly as usual - so it wasn't really for us and though I personally wouldn't return, it could suit many looking for a luxury break. The hotel is situated about 3 miles from Elounda... More

Just returned from our honeymoon at the blue palace and we were very impressed by the standard of the hotel. Food at the olea restaurant was very good although entertainment was a little lacking. We didn't eat at any of the other restaurants as you have to pay even if you're half board. You also have to pay for your... More
