“What a great hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We (married couple in our 50's) just had (mid Sept 12) a week break here and couldn't really fault anything. We had a superior bungalow sea view room. Very spacious, large comfortable bed, sofa nice bathroom and a large balcony with a view of the bay and Spinalonga Island to die for. (They also do rooms with private pools but the main swimming pools are so large and accessible not sure the private pool would be worth the extra unless you really want the privacy - but they are not secluded and many are overlooked a bit by the furnicular in which nearly all guests go up to reception/down to the beach). From the minute we arrived until we left the service throughout was fantastic. Everywhere is spotless.
The breakfast has a ridiculously large selection of anything you could want served overlooking the bay either inside (if you want a/c) or out - even complimentary champagne if you want it.
There are 4 other restaurants although we didn't try the italian and only ate in the asian once but the Grill room (Flame) and the Greek Taverna are both excellent. If you get fed up being in the hotel, Elounda is a 5 min (7euro) cab ride where there are lots of restaurants around a nice harbour. You can also walk 5/10 mins along the beach to a little village (Plaka) with restaurants and gift shops etc.
Then there is the private beach - rocky so no sand getting everywhere but boardwalks between all the well spaced out sunbeds so no having to walk on the pebbles etc. There is a floating pontoon for easy access to the crystal clear (another benefit of no sand) sea which is always calm due to the very sheltered bay. There are the usual water sports available including diving. If you don't want the sea the pools are huge, clean and lovely with a choice of saltwater or normal. Towels are not only provided at the beach but brought to your loungers and layed out for you in whatever direction you prefer for sun or shade. Drinks served at the beach bar or waitress to your sun lounger.
There is really good spa and a decent gym.
Our one mistake was booking through Olympic who managed to mess up the only 2 things they had to do (meeting us at the airport with a transfer - which is a 1 hour drive) and collecting us at the end from the hotel).
Will definitely go back.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a sea view but I think all rooms face the bay.

We stayed at the blue palace only 1 night. The room was very nice, cleaned few times during the day.
The best in this place is view from the room. Incredible

Beach OK, but in Creta you will find much better places. Reception desk ok, but staff respensible for luggage really rude, they throw my luggage, and destroy a little bit one of them.
Great place but in my opinion is not worth such a price.

Room Tip: Rooms with the pool are realy great.

The location is hands down the best in Crete with an unobstructed view of Spinalonga island. It is located right by the shore (a small pebbles, not sand beach). The pools/beach areas are accessible via a cable car that shuttles from the Reception area in the Main Building. Service was thorough, prompt and excellent in all restaurants and areas of the hotel. The restaurants located on the property are varied - from typical greek cuisine to Asian fusion. For a more rustic flavor the town of Plaka is a short walk away (part of the road is unlit at night) and it has quite a few restaurants with extensive menus. The breakfast buffet is very well stocked and replenished regularly - breakfast does end at 10:00 sharp. The rooms are large and comfortable with generous amenities. The curtains are thin though and do not block the sunlight at dawn. The 2 floors SPA is excellent, the staff are professional and the treatments are extensive. The thalasso pools (co-ed) are very large although they limit usage to 4 guest at the time and the hammam, sauna, whirlpool (not co-ed) are potent and well maintained. The gymnasium in 2 rooms has all the essential fitness equipment and strength training. There is also a superb indoor warm water swimming pool. The resort is certainly not a budget hotel but we found the price to be fair compared to other upscale resorts in this part of the world. A nice plus for the hotel and its guests would be a free shuttle to Elounda town and to the island of Spinalonga just a couple of minutes away. At present one must make personal arrangements by taxi/water taxi. As an avid tea drinker I was very pleased to see that the hotel does not use tea and coffee pot interchangeably and they should stick to serving tea anywhere on the property in proper ceramic cups. Serving tea in horrible paper cups in both the spa and the beach restaurant is not acceptable for such a high end property.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for taking the time to send your impressions of the Blue Palace to Trip Advisor.
I really appreciate your kind feedback as I can tell that we have achieved our aim in satisfying all of your expectations in terms of high level of service as well as location. It was great to read that the morning buffet and the rooms were to your liking. Just as wonderful it was to know that your Spa experience was excellent which compliment I have already passed on to all the staff that took good care of you.
Regarding the paper cups you mention us not using at the beach area or the Spa may I kindly note that although I appreciate your point of view, we do not use glass, ceramic or any other kind of material that could brake and cause any kind of injury to our guests as for us safety comes first.
Once again, thank you for choosing the Blue Palace and I look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

We stayed at the blue palace for 10 nights, the perfect amount of time to get just about relaxed before you get bored, as there isn't much to do here, September was a nice time to go as there weren't any kids and the sun was hot. The rooms were nice, cleaned twice a day and in the turn down service you got a weather report which was very helpful. We had a room with a private pool and opted for the heated type, it was great not bath temp obviously but not cold! We found it best to stay in your room for the morning on the sunbeds outside your room on the little terrace as there was sun till about 12 it was heaven to just dip into your own pool, be warned if you swim to the edge you can see into other peoples pools but its not that bad as they're just meant for dipping. Try and get a room away from the finicular as you can see straight into those pools.
The finicular whilst a stupid idea and like the most boring ride at Disneyland, it does take a while but it's not that bad so don't be put off! The views from the hotel are amazing, the sea was so warm and the jetty made it really easy to get in and out, being a pebble beach was a bit of a bummer but you soon get over that fact! I had a massage and it was fantastic so relaxing a real treat!
We were on half board so you get to eat in any restaurant. Some dishes which are more expensive you have to pay a small additional charge and pay for all the drink.Breakfast was good, fresh fruit, cakes, pastrys, cereals, cold meats, a hot table, omelettes and pancakes really something for everyone.
We also ate in all the restaurants, Our favourite was probably Flame, the steak was to die for, some of the best we've ever had and some lovely puddings if you can manage it! Be warned all dishes come quickly so if you want a break you have to ask. Asia Blue we found better on the second night we went there as you have to choose wisely or you may not like it, but we did find some great dishes so if you like asian food it's not to be missed! Isola was ok but the menu was lacking, not really many starters that I would choose from and all dishes lacked seasoning so be prepared to salt it, but we did have a great tiramisu. The final one was the Blue Door which was very standard home Greek cooking with massive portions not our favourite but it was ok. If you want really good Greek food though we would suggest going into Plaka as the calamari was to die for!
The service was so friendly every where in the hotel, nothing was too much trouble and everyone always had smiles on their faces, this goes for all the staff at breakfast, dinner, in the bar and pool side, they were real gems, although it can be slow sometimes. Just relax, you are on your holiday after all.
The drinks were very expensive. WIFI was free in the bar which was fine for us as we only needed it occasionally.
Over all it was lovely.

Room Tip: Not near the funicular!

As background, I should say I've traveled to over 30 countries and stayed at luxury resorts, five-star hotels, chain hotels, and motels. Each are good for various purposes and various price points. The problem that I have with Blue Palace is the value you get for your money. The resort is beautiful, overlooking a pristine stretch of the Mediterranean, but the prices are simply overinflated for the service that you get. My wife and I spent the first two days of our honeymoon there, because we heard how special it was.

We paid extra for the "honeymoon package," which include flowers and other decorations, fruits, liquor upon arrival, a massage, and breakfast in the room. We didn't receive the decorations, the breakfast, or the liquor.

We paid extra for a private pool, but found a lady, our next door neighbor, lying on the divider to our pool, making it not so private.

We asked for a tour of the Palace of Knossos. They said they only had a private Mercedes option available for about $240 Euro for five hours We paid. But then they told us that wouldn't include a guide. They wanted 200 Euro for a guide. A private, certified guide at the Palace of Knossos would have cost us 80 Euro- about 120 less than Blue Palace wanted to charge. We wound up going in a small group of 7 which cost me and my wife 10 Euro each. We had to rush to make it back in time.

The bill had mistakes, although they were promptly corrected.

Also, for those interested, there is a lack of retail options. No real sovenirs or Greek/Cretan mementos- only one exclusive jewelry store and an oddly-place fur store, along with an apparel shop that never seemed to be opened.

There were some great parts of the hotel Once we got the massage, it was great. The food was very good, although drinks were very overpriced. The staff was friendly and made us feel welcome.

Room Tip: Don't pay for the private pools- they're not so private.

During a one month trip to Greece, the first 2 weeks in Crete (in May 2011 - NOT October), my boyfriend and I splurged for one night here to celebrate my 60th birthday in an elegant, special way, and the Blue Palace did not disappoint. I had spotted the Blue Palace's picture in a magazine and knew I wanted to go there. It really does look like the picture.

The grounds, especially the reflecting pool and high arches along the lounge and bar patio, are elegant with a great view across to the island of Spinalonga, and made me feel uplifted and pampered just by being there. You can't use the restaurants unless you stay there, so we stayed for that reason and were glad we did. The patio/bar was the perfect place to wear a long Athena gown and have a glass of wine at sunset. The pictures we took there, with the arches behind us, drinking wine in our elegant clothes, became the iconic images of our trip to Greece. The restaurant down the hill, I think the Blue Door, had a great view and good food. It was too cold in mid-May to eat outside as we had hoped, but being inside there was perfect, and they pampered us. We had friends who were staying in a town nearby whom we wanted to join us for the birthday dinner, and they let them join us although they don't usually allow it. It was amazing to be here with my partner and good friends.

We made great use of the resort - the afternoon we got there, we sunbathed (topless!) down in the lounge chairs by the beach, and dipped into the infinity pool before we got ready for dinner. Our room was an upstairs bedroom and living room with a balcony - upstairs with an awesome bathtub with a view - very upscale and clean with rich linens, but pretty normal nice hotel like. I imagine all the rooms are good because they all face the sea. If it had been warmer we might have eaten on the balcony. However, I'm glad we spent most of our time out on the grounds. We enjoyed the excellent buffet breakfast on the sunny patio, and just sitting in the sun reading on the lounge chairs of the patio. The best part was that our checkout time was noon, but they let us stay all day and use the patio and pool and beach, so we felt like we had 2 days there. The pool is beautiful and the beach area has nice lounge chairs with palapas as umbrellas. The swimming in the sea from the pier was easy and refreshing.

Needless to say, we were so glad we had splurged for it - it was definitely worth the memories. I should say that finding out that the island of Spinalonga, the main view from the resort, had been a leper colony made it slightly uncomfortable to enjoy the riches of the resort—I had to hold two different eras and realities in my mind and heart at once, as the developers of the resort must have been doing when they built this. However, I still highly recommend staying at the Blue Palace. I recommend the book, "The Island," for a great novel to help understand those sad days of Spinalonga.

Room Tip: I think we were upgraded to a suite, and I don't know how, and I think all the rooms have views...

We stayed at the Blue Palace for three nights in August 2012. We were very impressed with the beautiful property, had a very relaxing stay and would absolutely recommend it to friends visiting Crete. This is a true resort with everything you would ever need on the property, but a quaint village of Plaka a short walk away should you want to leave the property and explore Crete (and buy significantly cheaper water and sunscreen at the grocery store in the town).

Property: The Blue Palace is built into a cliff with a funicular/elevator transporting guests down to the waterfront (approximately 5 minute trip, NOT air conditioned). I was surprised that this elevator is not referenced on the Blue Palace website; while the elevator can accommodate strollers, wheelchairs, etc., I can imagine it would be a bit cumbersome to have to make this trek if you were not 100% mobile. The main building is absolutely stunning with lots of comfortable seating, a beautiful pool (that’s the one you see in many pictures on their website) and a bar where there was live music (piano or jazz) every night during our stay. At the base of the funicular is the beach, additional pools, Isola and Blue Door restaurants as well as the spa and gym. The stone beach has plenty of comfortable lounge chairs and straw umbrellas for shade. The beach was windy in August so don’t bring anything light as it might blow away!

Room: Our room was spacious, comfortable and had a covered porch with a sitting table and a comfortable day bed. I believe EVERY room on the property has a view of the water/Spinalonga. I would recommend staying on a LOWER numbered room for better views (see my Room Recommendation for more detail here). The two things I would highlight about the room are that the beds are on the hard side and that the hairdryers require you to hold a button in order to keep the air moving. This made it difficult to use a brush when drying my hair so if you have a European-outlet hairdryer, I would absolutely bring it. On additional note about the room is that the WiFi was extremely weak and only worked about 30% of the time in our room. Not a big deal for us, but if you are planning on doing any business work, you might want to get an Internet card or plan on working out of the business center as a backup.

Restaurants: Our only real disappointment with our stay at the Blue Palace was the restaurants. We dined at the Blue Door (Greek) and Isola (Italian/Mediterranean). Both were pricey, which we expected, and the ambience at both was perfect. Blue Door is right on the water, the food is cooked over an open flame and there was live music (bouzouki – like a guitar) playing during our meal. However, the food and service were disappointing. My lamb was so overcooked that I could not cut through it and my boyfriend’s fish was undercooked. With regard to the service, we felt like we were being rushed through our entire meal. The waitresses asked us within two minutes of sitting down what we wanted to order (they hadn’t even delivered us menus yet!) and our entrees were delivered before we had even finished half of our appetizers. The service at the Isola restaurant was, on the contrary, too hands off. We had to ask multiple times for water and they forgot to bring our coffees. We were much more satisfied with the food here, but weren’t really in the mood for Italian cooking on our vacation in Greece! I would recommend having dinner in Plaka at least once during your stay. Our favorite meal during our trip was at a restaurant called THE CAROB TREE in the town square (one block inland from the water). For less than 40 Euro, we had two carafes of wine, four small plate appetizers, two entrees AND dessert. It was also delicious and a very memorable dining experience. However, the breakfast buffet at the Blue Palace was AMAZING. There was SO much to choose from (fresh fruits, pastries, traditional Greek breakfast dishes, cold cuts, cheese, eggs, omelets, etc.) and it was all delicious. As a SPG Platinum member, breakfast was complimentary, but I believe it would cost 20 Euro if you were paying full price. I think this would still be worth it for the sheer number of options you have.

Activities: We were staying at the Blue Door for vacation so we didn’t really want to do anything but relax and read by the pool. The concierge was very helpful to us in terms of giving us recommendations and offering to arrange visits to Spinalonga, boating, scuba diving, etc. We both got spa treatments one day and were very impressed with the spa. I wish we had booked additional treatments!

In sum, this hotel is perfect for a couple looking to kick back and relax and disconnect from every day life for a couple of days. I realize my review might come across as negative, but our experience was overwhelmingly positive. I just wanted to highlight things that I would’ve wanted to be aware of before my trip and could have been upset with if we were paying full price (we paid with cash and points). One last recommendation I would have is that the hotel should provide better directions to/from the airport or ferry for those driving themselves instead of using a shuttle or driver. The concierge e-mailed me a Google map with zero directions when I requested driving directions before our arrival and the front desk staff gave me incorrect driving directions when we were leaving, which almost resulted in us missing our ferry to Santorini. Give yourself at least an hour and a half to drive from Elounda to the ferry or airport if you are driving yourself.
