Given the size of Crete and the great distances to cover, coming back to the Blue Palace is a wonderful respite after a long day of sightseeing. The rooms are simple, but totally nice, and the addition of a private pool outside our door was just lovely. The view is amazing and relaxing and we had a very restful few days.. The beach club, accessed by funicular, is a nice place to pass the day, and the spa is lovely as well. The pools at the hotel are very beautifully situated. The food at the hotel's taverna, The Blue Door, was excellent, as was the food at Flame, the steakhouse. The concierge and front desk staff were helpful and accommodating. We really enjoyed our time at the Blue Palace. If we ever return to Crete, we will definitely stay at the Blue Palace again.
