We have stayed here 4 times. Engaged, honeymooned, baby mooned and got away from the little one for a few days of peace and quiet. Great food (blue door is a must), service and hospitality. The local village has some fine eateries too that are worth a visit.

the Blue Palace is not just an hotel or a resort, it's a destination itself, a world apart ... I should say is a property really deserves to be part of the Luxury Collection, due the the amazing location (all rooms sea facing), outstanding rooms, remarkable food and service. I loved my room with private pool and the friendly Greek... More

The resort and its location is simply outstanding. The food is good, pool and beach could not be better. Main purpose in this resort: relax! You can choose one of the pools, your own private pool, the beach or simply sit around the resort. We never had the feeling of being bored in 1 week! The room was spacious and... More

Superb 5* hotel,fabulous views and location. Stayed in 2 story Mediterranean Maisonette with Sea views and private pool looking out over Spinalonga Island,you could only describe it as waking up in heaven everyday. Rooms are equipped with everything you could possibly want. Restaurants, bars and pools could not be faulted and service from all members of staff was 1st.class

Exceedingly pretty hotel located walking distance from the cute, small village of Plaka. Elounda with more nightlife and restaurants is a short drive or taxi away. Hotel and villas overlook the sea and the island of Spinalonga. Unfortunately my upgraded room that I chose, with larger veranda and private plunge pool had a more obstructed view than less expensive rooms,... More
