If you are looking for a great place to stay this summer that is both safe and provides a great service, look no further. The Blue Palace has got it all! I stayed at the Blue Palace with my family this summer. The resort takes health and safety of its customers very seriously. The food is delicious and room service well organised. The food is all locally sourced and always fresh. Every day we had a large bowl of fruit brought to our villa. You have to try the cherries, they are out of this world. Our villa had breathtaking views and was just a short walk away from the beach. The resort has a great concierge service. It is service from the heart. Babis is just amazing, he helped us organise a birthday party during our stay. He created a Cretan experience with dancers and great food and lots of fun activities for the kids to do. It was a birthday to remember. The resort also has a great watersports centre. It is run by George. There is lots to do, my 9 year old daughter loved waterskiing the most. George is an awesome teacher, he taught her to waterski after just 1 lesson. She now wants to waterski every day which is a bit difficult where we live :). We will be back next year without a doubt. I would highly recommend the Blue Palace to everyone!

This is a beautiful hotel with stunning views over to Spinalonga island. The rooms are spacious with good size balconies, large, comfortable beds and the majority have a fabulous view. The hotel has only just reopened and they’ve really done an excellent job of making guests feel safe without significantly affecting the ambiance of the hotel (eg signs on sun loungers to show which ones have been cleaned and disinfected). The service in the restaurants is a bit rusty (wrong orders, slow etc) but they’ve been closed for 3 months and they’re clearly trying hard so that’s understandable. The major negative I have is that they’re clearly feeling the pinch financially as almost everything incurrs additional charges. For example, you get one small bottle of mineral water per person per day included, and if you want extra, there is a pre-pay mini bar post-COVID, but they will charge ~€8 to deliver a bottle of water if you make a mistake in ordering. Similarly we wanted to extend our checkout by a couple of hours and, despite the hotel being less than a third full, they refused to extend it even for an hour unless we paid €270. Given all the extras we had already purchased by this point (wine tasting, massage, water sports etc) it just leaves a slightly sour taste. Shame, because this is almost a great hotel.

We stayed at Blue Palace just before it closed at end of season. Stunning location and hotel but don’t pay extra for private heated pool as apparently all the private pools are heated! Villas are a walk from the main hotel.

We picked the Blue Palace hotel because we wanted to have luxurious holiday last few days at our holiday in Crete. And we were not disappointed. This hotel is amazing! From our hotel room to breakfast, hotel setting, swimming pool area, the hotel grounds and fantastic service. We booked superior bungalow pool king size room which was spacious with big bathroom and wonderfull swimming pool in front of the room with amazing sea views. The breakfast was out of this world! So much choice it was unforgettable. The hotel is set on the big land and has many areas for walking and the cable car that takes you to the beach area. Among other areas, it also has tea/coffee resting divided areas near the reception which looks fabulous in the evening with low light. We enjoyed stay here so much I will never forget the wonderful setting, the amazing service and fantastic feeling that Blue Place offers. This hotel is not cheap but it delivers with luxurious feel and relaxed holiday that we wanted.
