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.

From the beginning to the end of our week long stay, the Blue Palace did not fail to meet, and in many cases exceed our expectations. The location is cleverly situated as it gives you the impression of seclusion, that you are miles from anywhere (apart from the pretty little town of Plaka, which is 5 minute walk)and yet round...

We enjoyed all aspects of this hotel but a particular point of attraction is the sea view from all the rooms. Although the beach is rocky it didn't matter since the hotel had created a series of wooden planks over the rocks and well place chairs right at the beach. Even the pool side seating is right at waters' edge.... More
