This is a beautiful hotel. We spent a week here on a family holiday. Very spacious, peaceful and truly luxurious. Rooms cleaned and towels changed twice per day. We had a wonderful sea view from our bedroom onto the Spinalonga island. The gym was excellent. There were plenty of deck chairs with unlimited towels on the beach. The hotel has... More

Having read many many reviews of The Blue Palace, I decided to book a 10 night stay on half board basis to celebrate our 25 year anniversary. Having been to Crete on 9 previous occasions, we were really excited to be going back and staying at the Blue Palace. The first thing that hits you is the size of the... More

My husband and I, and our two children, stayed at the Blue Palace in August 2016. It is a wonderful resort, well designed so it never feels crowded (except at breakfast when everyone seems to be in the same place). The pools are enormous, and even when the hotel is full they can feel pleasantly empty. A few of the... More

Came for a week for my honeymoon. Overall had a really great experience. A few negatives about the stay: 1. The wifi was non-functional. It would connect, but would not load ANY web pages for me or my husband. The hotel offers premium wifi for a rate of 50 euro a day or 8 euro an hour. It was cheaper... More

My first impression was that it is much bigger than expected. 221 rooms make it a big resort and not a luxury "boutique" hotel I had in my mind. However, I was very much positively surprised. The service was excellent. Respect to Management when you see all the employees so happy and smiley. Never saw anything like that. Breakfast one... More
