It takes 10 mins to get from most rooms to the beach/pool/spa. The spa locker room smelled awful. First room king bed was really two twins pushed together-we couldn't sleep and had to switch rooms but there was no apology. Furniture old tattered worn and scratched. Showers flood room with toilet if on for more than 2 mins. We were... More

If you can stay here, you should! Book a room with a private pool. The rooms are spacious and really well appointed. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The concierge Dino's could not have been more accommodating. The beach is rocky but the water is so clean and blue. Beauty is everywhere you look at this hotel.

Peaceful, beautiful resort and everything faultlessly clean. Amazing a la carte (particularly The Steak, and Asian restaurants). Blue Palace is one of the best places I have ever stayed. Compared favourably with Four Seasons in Egypt and One&Only Royal Mirage in Dubai, both of which are heaven on earth. However the staff at Blue Palace were amazing, all genuinely friendly...A...

This luxury resort is truly that--pure luxury! Located in the magnificent setting of Elounda, within walking distance to the delightful village of Plaka, the Blue Palace is one of the best resorts I've ever experienced. As a traveler, I love to explore and pack as much sightseeing as I can into a trip. But, when our little group arrived at... More

Apart from the elevator music, the place is a haven for relax and a more than welcoming experience for honeymooners. We were gifted a bottle of champagne and sweets as we entered our room, and delighted with the suite and amazing heated private pool. The service is great, (warning put out the Do Not Disturb sign on door if you... More

From the moment we arrived at the Blue Palace, where we were greeted with a warm welcome and a guide to take us to our room and valet our car, we could not have been happier about our choice of hotel. On the recommendation of a friend from Athens, we flew to Crete on a family trip for both history... More

THE luxury resort...! Everything was amazing! Clean rooms, a large variety in breakfast with very good quality from Cretan products, staff always willing to help you in any way! And the view of Spinaloga, with the deep blue of the sea, its just breath taking! Well done!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Blue Palace, Resort and Spa is a place of rediscovery. A member of the Condé Nast Traveler Gold List 2013, this luxury resort with exceptional charm, architecture and style, is the perfect hideaway to experience island luxury accommodations, authentic cuisine and the breathtaking beauty of a Greek island. Crete is a magical place. Spend a day exploring old villages, wineries and the ancient Palace of Knossos or simply unwind with cocktails under the enchanting arches of the Arsenali Lounge Bar. Get on board the traditional wooden boat “Meraki” which will take you around the coast of Elounda, followed by a BBQ on the remote island of Agios Fokas. Explore the island of Spinalonga with its Venetian, Turkish and Arabic monuments just across from the resort and finish your day with an authentic Greek dinner at Blue Door, the tavern right at water’s edge. ... more   less
