My wife and I just returned from a two week stay in Greece, and this was our favorite hotel of the trip!!! Excellent experience overall.
Positives: Beautiful/modern room, excellent (though pricey) food, amazing views, friendly and helpful staff, nice library, excellent location, beautiful beach, several nice pools
Negatives: Bad experience with on-site water sports company (rude!), large resort that occasionally felt crowded
I have traveled to many wonderful vacation destinations, and stayed at many luxury hotels, and this was one of my favorites. Highly recommended!

- 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
