You cant not love this hotel....stunning views, great facilities and very attentive service. Lets be honest though it isn't cheap so you do expect very high standards! We had a superior room and the view was stunning. To start with I was a little bit jealous of the mini private pools however on closer inspection am glad we didn't pay... More

One week at the Elounda Blue Palace in Crete 27/6 to 4/7. Hotel very neat and staff exceptionally polite and considerate from the moment you arrive to you depart. The hotel is at the end of the coach drop offs from the airport and naturally at the beginning of the return journey, so depending on the number of drop offs... More

The hotel sits on a hillside and offers beautiful views of the cove and nearby spinalonga island. You can opt for a room with a tiny pool or without. Rooms are quite spread out from the main hotel but they will come and get you in a golfcart to go to the spa etc. the amenities are terraced down the... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this place. It is luxurious for European standards, modern, spacious, clean, etc. I loved our room with the private pool, this was definitely the highlight of the hotel, our 4 y.o. loved it and we did too. If you are considering this hotel, the private pool is a must, otherwise the regular room is not... More

First, upon check-In we were informed that we were getting an upgrade. When we got to the room, our view was obstructed by a metal roof. After a half hour, we were moved and it was better. While on the finicular, it got stuck due to its poor design of fitting many more people than it's capacity. Finally, the concierge... More

The blu palace is a great hotel in Crete, Greece. The ocean at the blue palace is stunning. The doc to lay on and snorkel and jump off is always convenient for the kids. The food at the blue palace is great the kids loved the ice creams at the end of every meal. Did I mention on the beach... More

Before I checked into the hotel, I was really looking forward to the experience in this hotel. I had looked at the pictures online and read some of the reviews. It seemed ok. I was excited about the private pool we were going to have in our "bungalow". We checked in around 8pm and noticed that the hotel is much... More

We arrived late at night and were quickly checked in and brought to our room. The room was very spacious with a sitting area, a good sized balcony with table and chairs and a gorgeous ocean view! Bathroom is very roomy and toiletries are nice. There is a charge for wi-fi (you can do daily or multiple day package) but... More

We were in a suite with a private pool, high on the hill overlooking the bay and the islands. The suite itself was beautiful, but there was some noise from the hallway. All the rooms probably aren’t this nice, but the public areas of the hotel are large and well appointed. There are several restaurants, pools and other public areas,... More

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
