We stayed four delightful days at this property and were completely satisfied with everything despite a few days of bad weather. The breakfast is amazing. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the setting was unbeatable. Plaka is a short walk away and a very quaint little fishing village.

I booked the Blue Palace as a surprise for my partners 30th Birthday as a relaxing week away because he never takes time off and needed a well deserved break.

We booked through Kuoni a suite with private heated pool. We have little experience of resorts but this year a hand injury prevented me from driving. The suite was a little distant from reception, but very well sited to enjoy uninterrupted views of the sea and day-long sunshine. The staff at all level were helpful; we were regularly offered a...

This hotel is perfectly situated for peace and quiet. We chose this hotel because it is right opposite Spinalonga, which is featured in the book The Island. We liked the fact that as well as the main restaurant, which had a good choice of dishes, there were several al a carte restaurants as well. The hotel was beautifully decorated and...
