“Very nice resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We traveled to Crete at end of March and stayed at the Blue Vilage resort for 4 nights, we took two rooms for a family with 3 kids (two kids are actually adult kids). The hospitality was very good, all are very nice and try to please us. The resort location is great just close to the beach, with several nice pools. Water are very cold at March so better to plan for Summer. The standard room are not so big , recommended only for 2+ 1 child.
I recommend to choose the rooms that are just in front the beach or the ones with the beach view, the other rooms are in between and you will not be able to have the Sea view which is very nice.
Food was good, kids definitely enjoyed the all include with so many ice cream.
The hotel is 5 stars but you should be familiar with the stars grade in Greece to set expectation
Wi-Fi is working sporadically.

Room Tip: Choose the ones close to the beach

We are traveling to the Crete every year and this hotel is the best we attended. The location is very good,it is just 35 kms from Heraclion (capital city) and it is in front of beach (there is small road between beach and resort).If you get up early,you can reserve your deck chair on the grass in front of the beach, what is very comfortable! Meals are very tasteful, you have very wide range of food there and all inclusive form is very plasant, when you like to have some drinks on the pool bar. Stuff is always nice to us, we are going there for 5 years and don't remember any problem. They are always helpful. If you are Czech, I reccomend travel agent Maria Michalaki http://www.dovolenanakrete.cz/, who is organizing everything for 7 years for us and we are very satisfied with all of their services.

we just came back from a long weekend in this resort (29 March - 01 April) It was just opened (it's close during the winter time). we stayed there for three nights and we realy loved it. the hotel located 30 minutes fm Herkalion, close to the main road but in a very quiet spot. the beach is very narrow, but the sea is beautiful.the food was very good too. the front desk people are very nice and so are the stuarts in the resturant, the bar tenders and the cleaning ladies. we booked a car fm Nicoes at the lobby - he was very nice and gave us good advises about places to see.
The only thing that we didn't like was that people smoked inside the bar.

Room Tip: we got room no. 430 . it a one floor building and has a varenda just next to the pool. the room was...

from the first moment we got to the hotel, all the way to the end, i tried very hard to find foults, but the staff of the hotel made it impossible. i nver had such hotel, that sulved yuor comlaints or demands in such shot notice, and in such proffetional way. the bellcoy, before they finished calling his name, he was already for you, with a smile and fast move to your room and back.
food - could fit any nationaliyt, perfect with all means.
entertainment - only good words.
what else could i say? i'll be back, for shure.

We spent a week in the Aquis Blue Sea Resort, which was absolutely wonderful. There is one buffet restaurant, which always had something worth eating, even though it wouldn't win MasterChef. The swimming pools are limited in size but adequate - but the sea is just a short hop across the road for serious swimming.
The room was perfectly pleasant, and kept very clean.

All of the staff were extremely friendly and provided excellent service. The only downside to the whole resort is the fight for decent sunbeds.

In all, I would happily recommend the resort, and I would have no objection to returning.

Back again for another delightful holiday at Blue Sea. We having been coming every September for many years and we are never disappointed. The breakfast is varied and truly excellent. All of the staff are friendly and welcoming. The hotel, rooms and the whole site are kept clean and tidy and the evening entertainment is most enjoyable. Blue Sea has so much to offer at a fair price, whether you are single, a couple or married with a family.
