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

I will not be long you should read the advices of the others : Perfect (or close) ! Go to the Blue Restaurant you will feel the the warm Creton "welcome". Breakfast is great. A little trouble : with room need a litle fix in with bathroom door. But no big deal.

Beautiful hotel built on the mainland on the outskirts of Plaka. Having spent a lot of time thinking what to write I think the conclusion is that the hotel is a business hotel trying to be a holiday hotel but it did grow on us. We were advised not to book a room with a pool by our agent as... More
