We are currently staying at the Blue Palace and it has many great features. We would however like to share a couple of comments on the accommodation. We booked two superior sea view bungalows. On arrival we discovered that these were actually rooms in a three storey block, a more accurate description would be superior rooms. Unfortunately, we also have the rooms on the ground floor next to the pool and bar. Our view is primarily of the pool area and the noise from other guests in the afternoons is tremendous. We have requested a move but will have to wait to see if this is possible as the hotel is fully booked. If you do book, and are hoping for a bit of peace and quiet, we advise asking that you are not housed in rooms 410-415.
Otherwise the amenities at the hotel are excellent and the restaurants are very good. Full marks so far, to the staff who are friendly and helpful. Beautiful location!

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
