Rarely have I been so happy with a hotel stay. The staff were exceptionally helpful without being overbearing, always providing service with a smile. They were all wonderful and I do not have all of their names, but Panos on reception was particularly helpful. The staff monitoring breakfast worked with an efficiency I have not seen anywhere else, again mostly... More

Stayed there with my wife for 3 nights We had a very good experience. We took the sea view bungalow. The hotel is super clean. The service providers are amazingly nice and eager to help with anything. We got a wonderful service by Georgina the concierge during most of our nights. The area is crazy beautiful and there many places... More

Truly a fabulous hotel. Location, rooms, everything. Many pools, restaurants. Gorgeous views. It was windy in late September so bring a light jacket. The staff was wonderful, especially Eleni, a concierge, who was amazingly charming. My husband and I loved her!!!

We spent four nights at the Blue Palace last week. Stunning views from our room of Spinalongas and the Mediterranean Sea. The room was quite spacious with an abundance of towels, water bottles, daily fruit. Found breakfast to be fairly extensive with regards to choices. Did not like having to take their cable car to the beach, sea as there... More

We stayed 7 nights in the hotel. The scenery is beautiful and views of the sea are amazing. However all this fades out with the attitude of the staff at breakfast and the hotel reception. It's not enough you are paying a high rate, they will try and take advantage of your circumstances and try to make even more money... More

Just returned from an enjoyable weeks stay in a Jr Suite with heated pool. Looked at upgrades but were more than happy with the accommodation. 308. The staff were excellent and friendly. To say room service was speedy would be an understatement. We enjoyed breakfast on out small patio overlooking our heated infinity pool and Spinalonga. The beds and pillows... More

This property exceeded my expectations in every respect. Although a very large resort property, we were made to feel very comfortable with extremely personalized service in our Island Luxury Suite, with our large heated private pool. We asked for a private location in advance and were granted exactly that. Room 511 was perfect and granted a perfect vista overlooking Spinalonga... More

This resort is stunning! Our room was unlike anything we had ever seen. We had our own private pool and a view of the ocean. The staff was great and we loved all of the extra touches like spa masks on our pillows at night. This was the perfect place to honeymoon!

The location is magical and the staff are ever patient and helpful. But this is a big very American hotel. So there was a queue for outside tables at breakfast every day and a scrabble for the sun-loungers by the sea. The wifi was hopeless (unless you paid extra), there was no water by the pools/sea (unless you paid extra),... More
