My family and I went to the Blue Palace in August 2016. There were 3 of us; 2 adults and a 13 year old daughter. This is our second visit to the hotel. Yet again the staff were brilliant in everything that they did for us. Nothing was too much trouble and every request or conversation was greeted with a... More

The hotel has very nice grounds, well landscaped areas, very good views, quite spacious and comfortable rooms and tasteful decor. To be called a "luxury resort" though.... many improvements are required: 1. The breakfast experience - even though the actual food is very good, the venue is below average. It is extremely crowded, very noisy and poorly airconditioned (there is... More

A really beautiful location with stunning views from our room. The staff were fantastic with some who really stood out - Sami (I think), the guy in Asai Blue, and the tall guy who welcomed us to breakfast, but most staff were absolutely fantastic. We had half board and were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was, again Asia... More

My wife and I returned to the Blue Palace and were pleasantly surprised that the hotel had made improvements to the property. There was a new beach bar/restaurant which was excellent, a new reserved area on the beach and all the restaurants menus were upgraded with new dishes.

The hotel sits back unto the mountain, at ease within its environment - its entire makeup is as natural as the stones from the land of which it is made, and the soil that it reflects. It is huge, yet it doesn't appear to be so - it doesn't protrude or is glaring in any way but is composed and... More
