Absolutely stunning from start to finish. I feel bad not giving the resort a review earlier - sry! The only thing stopping us going back is the desire to see other countries - yet I still hope to return again someday. The resort and surrounding area is simply beautiful and, whilst we were there, benefitted from hot, sunny days accompanied... More

Dear Guests, Thank you very much for taking the time to send your nice review to the Trip Advisor. I am sorry about the disappointment with the lack of availability at the Spa. The most common problem is that most of the guests ask for treatments at the end of the day, after the beach and the pool. Most morning... More

We stayed at the Blue Palace after reading the reviews, hoping - but not expecting it to achieve our high expectations, but it exceeded them. The hotel is beautiful, spotless, large rooms, excellent facilities, faultless. The staff are experts in customer service, they treat you with such courtesy and respect but are also warm and friendly. Nothing is too much... More

Dear Guests, I am really glad that you enjoyed so much your stay at The Blue Palace. All the members of the staff are going through a hectic training period before the opening every year ans it is nice to see that the results are good.

i stayed at the blue palace resort almost a year ago with my gf and our friends, the hotel is beautiful and the view is just breathtaking, but the place is over-priced for value, we paid 490 euros per night for a bungalow with a private pool, but the pool was VERY small and shared with our next door neighbours....

My new wife and I have just returned from an amazing honeymoon at the Blue Palace Resort, and felt compelled to write a review of the hotel, the location and the staff.

we travel a lot, both for private and professional reasons, and we've stayed in several well known hotels. however, the blue palace has a special place in our trip memories. perfect location, warm and attentive service, superb food (is there a more special dinner than an evening at the blue door with Haris, Rena and the rest of the staff?)....

We loved the blue palace hotel. Its a very spacious luxury hotel. The rooms were elegant and even with the child bed in our seaview bungalow we felt it was very comfortable. The service was excellent- all staff were very attentive, everything was immaculate and the views from the seaview rooms was spectacular. There was a number of salt and... More

We stayed there for 4 nights.The resort is amaizing and we got upgraded to a full suite. The scenary is incredible as well as the hotel facilities. Most rooms have their own heated pool!!. Take time- to go to Plaka and Elouda.. both worth visiting. Highly recommend the place - spacially if you have some SPG points
