Our family (with 2 teenagers) stayed twice in this hotel (June 2013 and June 2014), each time for 10 days. We absolutely love it. Our great experience started with booking - we dealt directly with the hotel reservation team. They respond immediately and they do everything to help you. And this was the only hotel in our experience which "guaranteed"... More

My husband and I stayed in Crete for 5 days for our honeymoon. It was beautiful! It is a bit far from the airport but we rented a car (affordable) and drove about 50 min to Elounda. When you arrive you reach a gorgeous gated community. Customer service was superb! I found everyone very easy to talk to and accommodating.... More

This hotel is beautiful for couples or family. The beach is wonderful with a little jetty out to the ocean because of pebbles . There are some fish as well which is nice and untouched. Spinalonga is right across the hotel. The food was lovely and the service was great. The rooms are magnificent . There are some problems with... More

Had a fantastic time at Blue Palace Resort. The hotel is located on a hill side, with superb views of the sea and Spinalonga island. It's beautiful both during the day and at night. The beach is located at the bottom of the hill - obviously - and a funicular gets you down in 2-3 minutes or so. Sometimes you... More

Blue Palace is my all-time favorite hotel. It is perfectly located: graciously stretched on a hill, with a breathtaking view of the Spinalonga island, and close to the charming tiny village of Plaka. The hotel itself is very elegant and classy (both the common areas and rooms). Our room had a private infinity pool - small, but really great to... More

The Blue Palace is a large American Style Luxury Hotel. Positive points are the really good service and the nice rooms. The mix of guests is very international - no nationality is overrepresented. The scenery is really great and the pools are really nice. With the large number of rooms the breakfast hall is sometimes a bit crowded. Also the... More

Humm mixed feelings about this property. While it's absolutely beautiful the staffing falls very short on decorum and accommodating guests. Hotel was very booked at the time we arrived and despite our suite night award request we were not given a suite. That's not too bad I guess but they were less am than friendly and nice about it.

My wife and I went here for a short while on our honeymoon and had an amazing time. We had a room with our own little infinity pool and an absolutely amazing view. The spa and pool were great, so was the hotel's own private beach. This place is a little difficult to get to though well worth it.
